We Have An ANT Invasion (Automatic Negative Thoughts) On Episode 007, Crystal and Bryan discuss how to handle an ANT Invasion. ANT stands for Automatic Negative Thoughts. In all of our feedback from the first 6 episodes, we received the most positive feedback from our very short discussion on Automatic Negative Thoughts, so we thought we would take a deep dive into the topic.
In this episode, we discuss the definition of ANTs, why they can be such a powerful force in our lives, the factors that contribute to the ANT invasion in our culture today, and how to identify and battle the ANTs that are in our lives.

What Does It Mean To Be Human On this episode, we answer a vital question: What does it mean to be a human being? We discuss how our body, mind, and spirit each make up a vital part of who we are. In addition, we discuss what happens if one of those elements are out of balance, and how we can get back on track. We also discover that we need to stop SHOULD-ing on ourselves, and that we need to get rid of the ANTs in our life.
