    159. Anxiety around first impressions

    159. Anxiety around first impressions

    "First impressions are important. but the last impression we leave a person will often leave the most lasting impression."

    Today's episode is all about first impressions. Abby and Margot share what first impressions feel like in the mind and body and how it can often shape shift both during and then again after a first impression is made. Feelings like awkwardness, feeling misunderstood, worrying about behaviors both verbal and non verbal, and more. They share stories about times in their life when a first impression left a lasting impression (on their psyche at least), and what they did and continue to do to navigate the challenging and uncomfortable feelings that sometimes arise in trying to manage outcomes and expectations. Shop Anxiety Warriors Podcast Merch at:

    158. "Meet yourself where you are" with Gabrielle Jacobson

    158. "Meet yourself where you are" with Gabrielle Jacobson

    "Accept-then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it." -Eckhart Tolle

    On today's episode Abby and Margot welcome their next guest, Gabrielle Jacobson. Gabrielle is a former Oxford physics student who has transformed into a dedicated data scientist and coach. She channels her years of anxiety and learning about herself into mentoring others, volunteering to help people with their University applications and she's especially passionate about helping women who've experienced similar pressures on their journey. She shares that she recalls anxiety starting around age 10 and notes that she specifically felt it as a student when each year the coursework became more challenging. She talks about the ripple effect that academic anxiety seeped out into other areas of her life as well. Gabrielle shares that when she entered University, she began to work towards creating healthier habits surrounding her anxiety, such as therapy, tracking feelings, educating herself on the cyclical nature of her anxiety, finding community and more. Gabrielle's superpower is finding acceptance in where she's at, and meeting her needs with a sense of flow and empowerment.

    157. Mansplaining. Enough said. Literally.

    157. Mansplaining. Enough said. Literally.

    "Oh now I get it." -Said no one ever after being mansplained to.

    On today's episode, Abby and Margot talk about the experience of being mansplained to. It had started with a viral video that they shared of Pro golfer, Georgia Ball being mansplained at while she was filming a video for her IG at the driving range. It unsurprisingly enraged the Warriors, so they knew it was time to chat about this ridiculous phenomenon. That is when a man talks at a woman for any amount of time, usually unsolicited, and often about a subject that she knows a good amount about. Note: Even if she doesn't, that doesn't open doors for 'education' or offering up opinions. They share stories of being mansplained to, and reflect on why they have hope that the situation can continue to improve and some useful steps to take to lessen the mansplaining. Side note: No men were hurt in the recording of this podcast. If you're hurt after listening, feel free to not tell us about it.

    156. "How human of me" with Giselle Shardlow

    156. "How human of me" with Giselle Shardlow

    "Life is a balance of holding on and letting go." -Rumi

    On today's episode Abby and Margot welcome their next guest, Giselle Shardlow. Giselle is a former classroom educator and trained yoga professional. She's the founder of Kids Yoga Stories, a company dedicated to creating valuable resources to bring yoga to kids everywhere and much more. Her story is largely about how she's framed her anxiety into two parts. The first from before she became a Mom and the second from after. Growing up she was labeled as a worry wort or "overly sensitive", but didn't know she'd been anxious until years later. Her story journey's from her early adult years when she was a world traveler and teacher in Guatemala, to what it was like many years later in young motherhood coping with her daughters struggles with anxiety and other needs and how these experiences (and how she related to them) felt different in mind and body. Giselle offers the Warriors a myriad of useful tools and modalities for approaching care, compassion and support for her anxiety. With countless moments of warmth and wisdom, she reminds listeners about the beauty of humanity and how with a bit more effort and surrender... we can all overcome life's obstacles with more ease.

    155. Anxiety By Proxy

    155. Anxiety By Proxy

    "If it's out of your hands, it deserves freedom from your mind too." -Ivan Nuru



    Easier said than done! On today's episode Abby and Margot talk about what it's like to have second hand anxiety for other people. It's not enough to be anxious about their own lives or circumstances, they need to complicate it even more! :-) The Warriors share experiences with feeling anxiety for others, how it relates to being an empath, how it manifests physically and more.

    154. "Being Authentically Me." With Michelle El Khoury

    154. "Being Authentically Me." With Michelle El Khoury

    "Details matter. They create depth, and depth creates authenticity." -Neil Blumenthal On today's episode Abby and Margot welcome their next guest, Michelle El Khoury. Dr. Michelle El Khoury is is founder of Yogamazia, a yoga studio specifically focused on maternaland children’s wellness education based in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Shebrings over twenty years of healthcare experience, is a published author and speaker, in addition  to being a credentialed perinatal and yoga professional. Michelle's story is filled with the layers and depth that form from living life to its fullest in every way. Her anxiety journey is no different. She shares openly about the many factors that have been part of her experience, such as struggling to manage her 1st pregnancy, juggling  20+ years of climbing the corporate ladder and more. She'd been through many epiphanies along the way, but what cultivated the most change was changing careers during the pandemic. Michelle knew deep down she was meant for something different from the world she (and her girls) had known, so she founded Yogamazia to help others find their support systems and improve their lives. She offers so many tools and tips for coping with anxiety and stress and reminds the Warriors that the best gift we have is to live authentically.
