Maybe Tomorrow is on a mission to destigmatize anxiety through honest conversation from those who experience it. It’s about understanding your lows, celebrating your quirks, and finding ways to expand our collective understanding about what it means to live with anxiety in our daily lives.
F*** and Vote or Something Like That
Pandemic anxiety, election anxiety, travel during a pandemic anxiety... we're carrying all the weight right now. Bria spends way too much time talking about her attempt at taking a vacation and deciding whether Mercury in retrograde has anything to do with it or if it was just a #2020 vacation. Caroline has better success in her travels, but the travel anxiety is real. On top of it, this is the last full week before the election and we.are.stressed. The point is, get out there and vote. And if you need some comical relief while waiting in line or to distress, we're here for you.
Mental Health Potpourri
Ever wonder why they didn’t build the computer where you can move shit around with your hands? No? Does it have anything to do with mental health? No. But these are the things we think about, among so many other things with our busy brains. On a relevant note, Bria goes back to therapy and Caroline talks about the struggles of getting organized with ADHD. It’s a mixed bag of an episode, but we always promise entertainment.
Caroline talks a different type of therapy, couples therapy. We’ve come to learn she needs brutally honest therapists and has very specific preferences when booking hotels (because #paranoia duh). But on a serious note, shopping for a therapist is still hard and teletherapy is weird.
Social Anxiety, is that you?
Is it just us or has your social anxiety gotten worse since we all started moving out of quarantine? Actually, we may have forgotten about our social anxiety during COVID. In this episode we talk about socializing, making friends and keeping friends (or not) during these strange times. It's introduced even more complexities to socializing. What are your friends boundaries? How do you communicate yours? Someone tell us the rules, because it's exhausting.
Which came first, the anxiety or the ADD?
Sometimes figuring out how to address our mental health is exhausting in itself. What's wrong with me? What can I do to make myself feel better? In this episode, we connect on Caroline's experience with being diagnosed with ADD and how inability to focus is a symptom of anxiety and anxiety is a symptom of ADD. Which is it? Or is it both?
Black Mental Health Matters
We're coming back after a hiatus to a different world. Following the recent deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd, so many of us found individual ways to learn, unlearn, and take action. Our return to this podcast after our break has given us a perspective on our role as content creators in this world. In this episode, we talk privilege, how to show up for the Black community every day while maintaining resilience and of course - how representation in the mental health and wellness space for the Black community leaves something to be desired to say the least.
