    Anxiety does not discriminate with Glen Tanner

    Anxiety does not discriminate with Glen Tanner

    #529: Today Shann is speaking with Clinical Psychologist, Glen Tanner from Sydney Australia. Glen is the host of the Mindcog podcast where he interviews experts in the fields of psychology, neuroscience, wellbeing, and high performance to break down the science behind your mind, brain, and behavior.
     
    Glen is passionate about psychology, and it's his mission to help people reconnect with their values, achieve their goals, unlock their potential, and live more rich, meaningful and fulfilling lives.
     
    Glen has first-hand experience with Mental Health - having lived with anxiety most of his life. Unfortunately, anxiety does not discriminate. It cuts a swathe through every level and facet of our society: men, women, children, old, young, rich, poor, black, white, and all levels of physical and educational ability -
     
    Not even psychologists are immune.
     
    Show Notes:
    “The shoe that fits one person pinches the other, there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.” - Carl Jung 
     
    Glen suffered from anxiety is entire life.
     
    Glen shares the story of his transition from a winemaker to a psychologist
     
    Why there is no quick- fix for an anxiety problem. It takes time and a combination of methods and lifestyle changes. 
    -How Glen cared for himself after losing both his mother and father to lung cancer while he was completing his Psychology degree.
    Glen believes that therapists are not and do not need to be immune to mental illness.

Thank U! Peace is easy to find n get when u have options. U both were free to leave ur 9 to 5 n find a better situation/peace. True we all have options but getting there is so drastic for some.

Calming, engaging, and actionable! 🙏

If you struggle with anxiety (like so many of us do) - this a must-listen podcast for you! Shann and Ananga do a fantastic job leading thoughtful conversations with experts and sharing actionable tips. The tone of the episodes is so calming and gentle that simply listening slows my heart rate. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!

That God awful sound at the beginning of each episode needs to stop!

Love the podcast, but the tone or chime or whatever that God awful sound is at the beginning of each episode is terrible. Way too loud and abrasive. I literally cringe when I hear it.
