    In this episode, Jessica is talking all things anxiety. What helps her manage her anxiety, why routines are so important for her, and how she 'finds her calm.' It's all about working *with* your anxiety, instead of against it. As someone who works for herself, Jessica also talks about how she structures her days and weeks for optimal productivity.

    In this episode, I’m having a conversation with Jennifer Nicholls, my program leader when I was on Remote Year this past fall. (#RYKahlo!) Jen talks all about her role as a Program Leader in Remote Year (she’s currently on her fourth program!), and her path that lead her there. We also talk a bit about paying attention to signs, setting your days up for success, travel must-haves, life-changing moments, personal mantras, and more.
