    Why Should I Be Proactive?

    Why Should I Be Proactive?

    To be proactive is to plan ahead. At least, that is where we begin this episode and we take you through a little conversation about the ins and outs of planning, about where we falter, about why planning ahead works and how far can we see. All in all, this is an episode we are extremely proud of. It also happens to be the episode prompt that was decided five minutes before recording. Talk about proactivity? 👀

    Are You Bored?

    Are You Bored?

    Let's talk boredom! In this episode, we talk about why we feel boredom is important, why every good thing comes out of boredom, why we feel the cheap ways to entertain ourselves like movies, streaming, Instagram need to be curbed a little. Overall, this episode has a strong opinion to it but we promise it's not boring. In any case, if you're bored enough to read this description, why not give it a listen? Shownotes are on letsaskmyfriends.com and you can always make sure we don't get bored of doing this by incentivizing us with that coffee.

    How Do You Deal With Stress?

    How Do You Deal With Stress?

    Aren't we all just stressed about stress? To be honest, there's so much to stress about, especially if you're in your twenties. In this episode, we talk about how we deal with stress, what works for us, what has helped us in the past, et al. We also touch upon personal responsibility, asking for help when needed and learning to accept we can't fix everything. All in all, we hope you'll take something away from this one. The shownotes are on letsaskmyfriends.com and you can support what we do at buymeacoffee.com/lamf.

    How Do You Cope With Change?

    How Do You Cope With Change?

    The trick to a happy life is how you manage change because change is going to come whether you like it or not, whether you want it or not, and whether you're ready or not. In this episode, we talk about how we deal and cope with change. We talk about the idea of a shiver, of making systems, of the smallest possible change and more. We hope we change your perspective on change to some degree. As always, shownotes on letsaskmyfriends.com, and you can always buy us a coffee!

    What Do You Want From Life?

    What Do You Want From Life?

    This is one of our most offbeat and open-ended episodes yet. In this one, we talk about wants and mimetic desire, from the ideas of René Girard, which we have been introduced to recently. In this conversation (which was interrupted thrice, actually), we talk about what we want from life, our picture of a perfect life, which parts of our lives don't come from influence and we leave you with an open-ended prompt: why do you want what you want?

    The shownotes are on letsaskmyfriends.com, and you can always buy us a coffee and hit us up on Instagram!
