I'm so happy you're here. I'm Lauren Dow, an author and feeler of the big feels who is now giving this whole podcast thing a try.

Lauren Dow Talks is a product of the work I’ve been doing through my writing of reinforcing self-love and advocating for mental health. It’s a safe space to grow, share your story, and simply relate to another human being so you can say, “I’m not alone in feeling this way.”

I don’t know what I’m doing, and most of us don’t. But I’d love for us to grow, learn, and feel together.

    Lauren Dow Talks New Year's Resolutions, Priorities, and Self-Care

    Lauren Dow Talks New Year's Resolutions, Priorities, and Self-Care

    I don't do New Year's resolutions. Instead, each year I focus my intention on one word. 2021 was all about balance. 2022 is going to be all about priorities. On this episode, I talk about making the self more of a priority in our lives as a New Year's goal rather than a resolution. I share with you what I believe self-care really means (and it's not all bubble baths and scented candles).

    Lauren Dow Talks Love with Mental Illness

    Lauren Dow Talks Love with Mental Illness

    Love. We love talking about love. It's what we write books and make music about. But what about being in love when you have a mental illness? What's it like when all you know is the kind of "love" where people abandon you because your illness is "too much to handle" for them?

    In this episode, I talk about what it's like to find love with mental illness, to learn about the love you deserve, love with the outside world, and how self-love is the best kind of love there is.

    Lauren Dow Talks Changing Your Life By Shattering The Glass

    Lauren Dow Talks Changing Your Life By Shattering The Glass

    In order to change, we have to shatter the glass.

    In this week's episode, as we get ready to near the turn of 2022, I'm doing a little reflecting on what 2021 has brought. So. Much. Change. But not just change in terms of where I live or the things I've done, but I'm talking about change within myself. But in order for any of us to really change, we have to be willing to shatter. Let's dive.

    Lauren Dow Talks Happiness and Living a Full Life

    Lauren Dow Talks Happiness and Living a Full Life

    Happiness. Isn't that the ultimate thing we are all trying to achieve? For the longest time, I assumed that the opposite of depression was to find happiness. The truth was that I was in fact, seeking a life of vitality. I wanted to live a full life.

    In this episode, I'm talking about the misconception of depression and happiness, and how we have the ability to have the fullest, most beautiful life. But it starts by learning to find it within the mundane and monotonous days that are our typical lives.

    Lauren Dow Talks Having Bipolar Disorder

    Lauren Dow Talks Having Bipolar Disorder

    Well here's a thing. I am bipolar. Or is it that I have bipolar?

    After taking a hiatus, I'm back! But it's not without explanation. In this episode, I'm sharing with all of you my recent diagnosis of bipolar disorder. I discuss the grieving, the healing, the stigma, and the change that happens in your life when you ask for help.

    Thanks for joining me, thanks for staying with me, and thanks for giving me a reason to keep coming back.

    Lauren Dow Talks Balance, Quitting, and Breathing

    Lauren Dow Talks Balance, Quitting, and Breathing

    We're always trying to find the perfect balance in our lives. A routine, a rhythm, a flow that manages every aspect of our lives ever so perfectly. Our jobs, our marriage, our children, our finances, our creativity, our fill-in-the-blank. But that's not life. Life is not a perfect balance because we are imperfect human beings.

    Today I'm talking about stripping everything away and asking ourselves some really important questions. Today, I'm talking about balance, about what makes us inhale and exhale, and what would happen if we stepped back from certain aspects of our lives entirely.

Best journey into a positive and authentic self talk

I like Lauren Dow talks. I like her voice, I like her messages, it’s like listening to a voicemail from a beloved friend telling you all the wisdom she’s found in her own journey.
