    35. Understanding why CBD works and how to use it, with Brittany Carbone, founder and CEO of Tonic CBD

    35. Understanding why CBD works and how to use it, with Brittany Carbone, founder and CEO of Tonic CBD

    Do you suffer from anxiety or depression? Are you suddenly suffering from anxiety or depression because #2020? Then today's episode is the gift you've been waiting for. Today on the show I am speaking to the founder and CEO of the CBD brand that I love, trust and swear by, Brittany Carbone, founder and CEO of Tonic CBD. 

    As Brittany explains, TONIC was born out of necessity. She was looking for a natural way to manage her anxiety and depression. Something that could help like cannabis had, but would be workday-friendly. She began combining CBD with ashwagandha root because they have similar effects, but take different pathways to get there. The idea was that together they could cover more ground, doubling down on each other’s effects to create a stress-relieving, mood-boosting, adaptogenic powerhouse…and that’s exactly what happened.

    These products have changed my life. They are the only thing I have found that offer consistent and effective relief to my anxiety and depression. And the more I learn about it, the more empowered I feel to make better decisions about not only my mental health, but also my physical health. That's why I am so thrilled to share this interview with you, because I know once you hear from Brittany you will feel the exact same way. Empowered!

    34. How millennials can opt-out of "checklist culture" and learn to love delayed gratification, with Bethany Adkins, author + host of Millennial Mission podcast

    Are you overwhelmed watching everyone else's life fall into place, never knowing when yours will? On today's episode, our guest reminds us that what we see online is only a fraction of the real image and that we are not all called to the same path. And if you know me, you know she's speaking my language. 

    Today on the show we are speaking to Bethany Adkins, author and host of Millennial Mission podcast. Bethany is a Pediatric Nurse turned stay at home mom who has always had a love for reading and writing, and she finally decided to pursue it full time. She is now a blogger, podcaster, freelance writer, and podcast manager. If she is not adventuring with her family in her spare time, you can find her at the nearest coffee shop diving into a good book or creating one of her own. 

    In today's episode, Bethany speaks on breaking the stigmas of Millennials, giving a call to action for us to rise up for future generations. We discuss living a life outside of cultural norms to pursue your purpose and standing out in a world that screams conformity.

    32. Managing anxiety with rituals + routines, with your host Lauren Ellman

    32. Managing anxiety with rituals + routines, with your host Lauren Ellman

    I talk a big game about mental health. I advocate for it. I try to educate myself about it. I share as much as I can to normalize it. However, when it comes to practicing what I preach, I have been slacking lately. I have been trial and error-ing my way through self-care tools over the years and have collected a few in my tool kit that I know help me. But sometimes, it's hard to implement them. 

    So, I want to use this episode to talk about some habits and rituals that I use that I know help manage my anxiety. Ideally, I would implement all of these every day. But that's unrealistic. However, a side effect of my anxiety is perfectionism. If I can't do something perfectly, I can't do it. If I can't do all the things, I can't do any of the things. This leaves me knowing what I need to do to help myself, but not doing it.

    Realistically what I need to do is choose a few, 3-5, that I can touch on every day. That's a realistic goal. And in today's episode I am sharing a fun challenge I've put together for myself to make that happen. 

    ~

    TALKING POINTS:

    + Managing anxiety with rituals, habits and routines

    + How current politics are effecting our mental health

    + Knowing what tools work, but not using them

    + Rolling the dice to choose what self-care to do each day

    + Sticking to certain micro-routines to always have that to count on

    + Self-care is a daily dedication to the self
