289. The Sports: The Kind of Embarrassing Psychology of Winning & Losing

We Can Do Hard Things

14-03-2024 • 51 mins

Today we are talking about THE SPORTS. Podsquader Naomi calls in – confused, and slightly embarrassed – about how distraught she is over the loss of her new favorite sports team, asking how to handle it and what, exactly, is going on with her?  Glennon, Abby and Amanda attempt to answer: What IS it about The Sports that makes it so damn emotional?    We go into: The psychology of why our bodies are taken over when our favorite team (or our kid!) is playing;  Glennon’s recent suboptimal moment with a referee,  Why Amanda truly believes she is has a JOB while watching games; and  The way Abby creates an “energy shift” to help her kids win.
