How to Function in a Crazy World logo

Yes, it's possible to keep going—and beautifully, at that—even though the world feels bonkers right now.

Just imagine yourself:

  • Being resilient in the world today but without becoming hardened.
  • Managing pretty well, thank you very much, instead of barely holding on in the onslaught of news and change.
  • Daring to (gasp) be happy and hopeful instead of distraught and fearful in today's world.
  • Feeling a sense of peace in spite of so much change and uncertainty.
  • Getting to the root of why you feel anxious, afraid, and freaked out—and learning how to stay ahead of anxiety, fear, and freak-out.
  • Understanding deeply your connection to the world without feeling helpless in the world.

It's shocking, isn't it?

In spite of everything you do to stay informed and be responsible...

It feels like some days all you can do right now is (just barely) hold on.

Your ability to function is starting to wear thin because frankly, the news is like whack-a-mole—as soon as one issue is under control another one pops up out of nowhere.

It's exhausting you to the core.

You're seriously starting to wonder how much more of this you can take.

Does it sometimes feel like you're barely holding it together these days?

Here's the plan you need to take back control:

Hi, I'm Coco!

And I want you and me to be able to function and even thrive starting right here, right now—because I believe that we humans are not supposed to live in a constant state of fight-or-flight, even when times are crazy.

I used to think and hope that someone could save us all—someone powerful who could make big changes, or that working with politicians was the key to a positive future.

Ha! Turns out that you and I as individuals have far more control and power to control our own lives than we've ever been taught or told. And that's the problem—we've spent our lives relying on what we're taught and told.

As it turns out, we've been misled, sometimes innocently, sometimes not. And that's why I made this action plan, so that you and I can get control of our ability to function in this world and also have a damned good time doing it.

Want to know more? Go nose around on my blog, ShinyButter.com and see what sort of trouble you can find.

" This is snappy and involving, and allows me to proceed at my own pace—really lets me concentrate on a given area.

And this so much reinforces everything I've learned in cognitive behavioral therapy. Thank you!

Great work—I so love what you do!"

Are You and the How-to-Function-in-a-Crazy-World Action Plan for Sensitive Humans Right for Each Other?

and other burning questions...

WHAT'S INCLUDED WITH THE HOW-TO-FUNCTION-IN-A-CRAZY-WORLD ACTION PLAN?

You'll receive a digital copy of the hands-on How-to-Function-in-a-Crazy-World Action Plan for Sensitive Humans.

This action plan is packed with concrete techniques to help you recognize the sources of fear and anxiety that are piling up on you and affecting your ability to function in today's world.

The action plan includes:

  • Serious and also fun, joyful, non-depressing discussions and activities centered around what we're experiencing and where it's coming from.
  • An empowering take on addressing the root of your concerns, fears, anxiety, and general unease, starting with throwing out the garbage—literally, metaphorically, in your imagination, all of it.
  • Power-packed activities such as re-telling stories, turning over rocks to figure out why we think, feel, and believe what we do, and learning why looking at the bright side is actually a really big deal.
  • Also kitten videos and a juicy 98-minute playlist.
  • All delivered digitally to your inbox.

IS THIS GOING TO TAKE A LOT OF TIME?

You could probably sit up and read everything, plus do the activities in one night. Granted, you may very well be staying up too late if you do this but I don't blame you if you really get into it.

What I really recommend, though, is spending a few days on this. Just soak it up and roll around in it. If I've done my job well, you'll have a lot to think about.


DO I GET A PHYSICAL COPY OF THIS?

The How-to-Function-in-a-Crazy-World Action Plan is available in digital PDF format only (plus links to a big 'ol juicy playlist and some great videos, you gorgeous human, you). I will not be sending you a physical copy.

You can print it at home to put in a 3-ring binder (looks good in color or b/w), or just print selected pages at home, or have the whole thing printed locally. (Support a local business, yay!)

Or you can just view the PDF on your device and take notes in one of those journals you've got stashed for this sort of thing. (Links to videos and a playlist are clickable inside your digital PDF.)

In short, this is delivered digitally in PDF format to the email address you provide when ordering. 


HOW SOON AFTER PURCHASING WILL I RECEIVE MY PDF?

It should arrive in your inbox via the email address you provide at checkout within 5-10 minutes of your purchase.

If you don't see it, check your spam, junk, or promotions folders—you know how those three like to lure innocent emails away from your inbox.

(Pro-tip: "Star" your email and drag it to your main/primary inbox so you don't miss future emails.)

(If yours is lost in cyberspace, contact me here.)


HOW DO I KNOW IF THIS ACTION PLAN IS RIGHT FOR ME?

If you're itching for some guidance that's not a bunch of brow-knitting and guilt-tripping, but instead is useful and real in a deep and meaningful way—something that speaks to your gentle soul but is nobody's fool, then this is just the action plan for you.

Please know that I'm not a therapist and this is not meant to be therapy. (For 21 bucks you can add this helpful action plan to your therapy if you want to.)

I'm just a regular person who doesn't like being jerked around by a culture and media that seem to want me scared, anxious, and distraught—and I assume you don't want that either.


IS THIS JUST A BUNCH OF WOO-WOO HEAD-IN-THE-SAND CRAP?

Nope.

This action plan leads you along to examine how your beliefs, feelings, and actions affect your ability to function, crazy world or not.

What you won't find in this action plan: You won't find me telling you to act all serious, as though that makes you more intelligent or concerned or something. That stuff is too often just optics anyway.

I'm telling you, you gorgeous human being, that you can be happy and have a good time more often than not while still being productive and also empathetic in this world.

I mean, are scowling and blaming and lashing out really what you want to be known for?

Seriously, if all that tweeting and resisting and gnashing your teeth has you wondering when it's all going to work out, then maybe you and this How-to-Function-in-a-Crazy-World Action Plan are made for each other.


WHAT GOOD IS JUST FUNCTIONING WHEN THE WORLD IS COMING TO PIECES?

It might seem selfish to talk about getting on with your life when the world is more than a little bit messed up.

But what good are you if you just fall apart? Not only does that just feel crummy, but I'm sure you recognize that if you're doing more than merely surviving you're more helpful to those around you.

If we didn't need each other—and we do, of course—then there wouldn't be a need for more that one of us on the planet at a time. Well obviously that's not the way this works. So get yourself functioning so you can have a positive affect on the people around you.


HOW MUCH DOES THIS COST?

The How-to-Function-in-a-Crazy-World Action Plan for Sensitive Humans is normally $42 and is $21 right now. Jump on it.


WHAT'S YOUR RETURN POLICY?

Since this is a digital product, I'm thinking you can figure out pretty quickly how you feel about it, so let me know within a week if you want a refund. Then you can delete the thing and move on with your life. No biggie, no hard feelings, life is still grand.

"This is a beautiful workbook that helped me figure out why some things affect me and some things I brush off as normal.

I love the message in this: we really can function in our little corner of the world by laughing, listening, and living. And most importantly, I've realized that we’re all heroes on our journey.

Thank you, Coco—this is awesome!"
