    Mindfully Together: Grounding meditation with Alison Diana

    Mindfully Together: Grounding meditation with Alison Diana

    This is the first edition of Mindfully Together, a new series of meditations we'll doing here. Get comfy and listen up, and we hope it provides a few minutes of calm and relaxation in your day.

    If you've never tried meditating before, it can sound intimidating. But here's a tidbit that really helped me when I was starting out: it's called a meditation PRACTICE. The goal is not to be perfect, or to have zero thoughts in your mind. Heck, my ADHD brain is always running... but becoming more aware of my thoughts and taking a few minutes to tune into my mind and body each day has really helped me.

    So get comfy (you don't even have to sit still) and enjoy this 10 minute meditation from therapist and meditation guide, Alison Diana.

    Supporting friends and ourselves through sad times - with Tracy Subisak

    Supporting friends and ourselves through sad times - with Tracy Subisak

    How do you support a friend who's sad? What do you do when someone is going through a hard time? That's not really something we humans learn in school, but it's obviously really important. And at some point, we'll all go through a sad time in our lives.

    My guest this week just released about exactly this subject - and it's a book that will only take you a few minutes to read!

    Tracy Subisak, is an author, illustrator, and yoga instructor. Her new book, the first one she’s both written and illustrated, is called Jenny Mei Is Sad. It tells the story of a young girl, Jenny Mei, who, yeah, is sad. But the book is told from the friend’s perspective, and shows what the friend does to support her through her sad times. Spoiler alert: all the friend does is hangout with her, do fun things when she wants to, allow her to be sad or frustrated when she feels that way. It’s a beautiful, simple message that I think we can all relate to. Unless you’ve never been sad, or known anyone who’s sad, and if that’s the case… are you human??
    So I loved talking to Tracy about how to start emotional conversations, how her friends helped her through a really sad time in her life, and how to breathe and move through the grief and stress that can manifest in our bodies.

    What is Ketamine and how can it treat depression? - with Dr. Steven Mandel and Sam Mandel from Ketamine Clinics Los Angeles

    What is Ketamine and how can it treat depression? - with Dr. Steven Mandel and Sam Mandel from Ketamine Clinics Los Angeles

    We've talked about therapy, we've talked about antidepressants... but today we’re talking about a totally different type of treatment for depression: Ketamine.
    When I say that, you might think, WOAH, that’s an anesthetic. Or, that’s a party drug. But here's how it relates to mental health - there are now places you can go, doctors you can go to, to get a Ketamine infusion for your depression.
    And this is fascinaing to me. Because I am all for anything that can be proven to help people’s brains. Ketamine - because of its use as an anesthetic, is legal for medicinal use. And has been since the 1960s.
    My guests today are Dr. Steven Mandel and Sam Mandel, the founders of Ketamine Clinics Los Angeles!
    Dr. Mandel has been using Ketamine to treat patients for over 40 years, as a board-certified anesthesiologist. He’s also a founder of the American Society of Ketamine Physicians, Psychotherapists, and Practitioners. Sam Mandel is his son, and the Chief Operating Officer of Ketamine Clinics Los Angeles. They opened the clinic together 7 years, ago, and since then, have administered over 8 thousand treatments.
    I loved talking to them about what Ketamine infusions entail, how it actually works on the brain, and how it has helped many of their patients feel SO much better.

    ADHD, OCD, and TikTok - with Megan Mitchell

    ADHD, OCD, and TikTok - with Megan Mitchell

    Do you ever wish you could go back in time and have different conversations with people? I've been thinking about that a lot this week, because technically, I knew Megan Mitchell back in 2010, when we were both at Emerson College in Boston, hosting a show on the Emerson Channel together. But although we obviously chatted with each other, we never talked about serious things, like our mental health.
    Megan is a news anchor on WLWT in Cincinnati. And when she's not on TV, she's making TikToks to her over 1.4 million followers, about the LGBTQ+ community and mental health.
    So I loved talking to Megan about ADHD, OCD, eating disorders, and how being open and vulnerable about your feelings can really help you and the people in your life.

    Post-pandemic pressure, social anxiety, and boundaries - with therapist Alison Diana

    Post-pandemic pressure, social anxiety, and boundaries - with therapist Alison Diana

    How are you? Are you ready to go back to "normal?" Whether you're vaccinated or not, some of us are ready to move on from the pandemic and go back to our old ways, and some of us just aren't. If you're feeling pandemic-related anxiety, social anxiety, or you've discovered a new version of yourself and you're trying to figure out how that fits in the world now, you're definitely not alone.

    Alison Diana is a therapist, meditation guide, and yoga instructor, who can help us sort through all of this. Obviously the last year sucked for many reasons, but maybe there are parts of it we enjoyed and want to bring with us as we go forward.

    So I loved talking to her about post-pandemic pressure, social anxiety, mindfulness, and setting boundaries to show love for ourselves and those around us.

Looooove

What a brave new podcast! I admit I love to listen to podcasts at 1.5 speed because I need info fast. This pod was almost enough to warrant a real speed listen. Tucker is so eloquent in how he speaks about mental health, and Cassidy asks pointed questions that help bring a new light to this space. I cannot wait for the next episode!

Beneficial, Important, Relateable

This podcast is great, much needed content. Mental health is something that still has stigma attached to it, and outlets like this podcast are beneficial and helpful in working through that. Cassidy's TV interviewing skills shine in this outlet, and her personality/style help make this often serious content relateable. It's like talking through life events with a friend. The podcast is peppered with light-hearted moments, and asks questions that are important for us to ask in our own lives. Useful information comes out of it, and I'm glad to have this new content from Cassidy.
