    #55 Sir John Kirwan Speaks On Playing for the All Blacks & Managing His Mental Illness

    Today I am speaking with Sir John Kirwan, a kiwi legend from New Zealand. He played 96 games and 63 test matches for arguably the best sports team ever, in the the All Blacks from 1984 to 1994. He was also part of the 1987 Rugby World Cup Team. JK and I discuss the mental healthstruggles he experienced throughout his career and his near suicide attemptwhile he was on tour playing for the All Blacks. He battled himself internally with the stigma surrounding mental health and seeking help. He put himself under so much pressure to perform, ignored his anxiety, and felt imposter syndrome throughout his career. We talk about his recovery and his daily mentalhealth care plan that has transformed his life for the better.Topics we cover and where to find them:* [0:00]: Intro* [3:40]: How Sir John Kirwan (JK) was knighted* [5:52]: Early life* [7:54]: Highlights of rugby career* [9:15]: Rugby significantly* impacted self worth and mental health* [10:25]: Dealing with anxiety* [14:11]: Stigma of depression and anxiety* [15:08]: JK’s teammate saved his life* [17:00]: Seeking help* [20:00]: Developing a daily mental health plan* [23:45]: Tools for dealing with anxiety* [25:37]: Learning how to meditate* [29:24]: Further development of daily mental health plan* [32:28]: Founding Mentemia* [36:06]: Example of how Mentemia works for a workplace* [38:15]: Founding the foundation ‘Mitey'* [41:19]: Biggest lesson in life* [44:51]: Handling imposter syndrome* [46:15]: Get support and help* [48:34]: Failure doesn’t exist* [48:55]: Most grateful for loveLike this show?

    #54 Revie Jane Speaks On Recovering from Childhood Trauma & Becoming a Great Mother

    In this episode, Revie gets really vulnerable as she shares about her childhood, growing up with a sexually abusive, alcoholic father and a narcissistic, bipolar mother. As a mother of two little girls, Revie lives with anxiety and complex post traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD) and is doing the incredibly hard work of breaking the cycle of abuse in her generational line. Revie opens up about what this looks like, the work she has done to unpack her trauma and fully love herself. We talk about her journey with motherhood and how she’s continuing to deal with and unpack her own experiences as a child while raising her daughters and what it truly means to be a great mother. At 21, Revie started one of Australia’s first female only gyms, which catapulted her into the world of social media where she quickly grew a big following. Now, as a full time content creator, Revie uses her platform to share her story to bring hope to other people living with the devastating effects of trauma and abuse.

Gregg Champion ,

This podcast is full of passion!!!

Sam takes this time with you seriously, really does the research to pull real nuggets out of guests… he is present, he is full of passion, and ALL IN to get the word out on mental health to help others. You can almost see him tuck away the “new tool” he gains from his guests to use for himself or for someone in need down the road. Good Stuff each episode that’s for sure!

One of the most important convos we can be having right now

Sam is an amazing host and is facilitating a conversation here that is needed now more than ever. He is brave, wise, insightful, and courageous and he really brings that out of his guests as well. This is such a powerful show and I’m grateful that Sam created it to help so many people see that it truly ain’t weak to speak 🙏🏻

Making mental health cool

This podcast offers honest real talk about all the things we need to be speaking about: therapy, anxiety, lifestyle design, vulnerability, etc.

I’ve been 5 year fan of Livin.org’s mission of making it cool to speak up about mental health issues.
