    Let's Talk Insomnia + Anxiety

    Let's Talk Insomnia + Anxiety

    This week we're talking all things insomnia or sleep struggles in relation to anxiety. Which came first, the crappy sleep or the anxiety? Which can we work on to improve the other? For this chat my expert guest is psychotherapist, sleep specialist and author Heather Darwall-Smith who has some really interesting takes on anxiety in general here, but particularly when it comes to sleep. Sleep in itself can be such a source for anxiety - the pressure to get the best sleep. Heather gracefully bulldozes through a lot of what you normally hear about sleep and offers very practical, reasonable advice to help take the edge off your sleep woes. Her book, The Science of Sleep is out now. Read more about Heather here and follow me on @OwningItPodcast here.

    Jessica Urlichs: Post Partum Anxiety

    'I'd never really experienced anxiety like it until after I had my baby.' Jessica Urlichs is an incredible poet, children's book author and person from New Zealand. She became an instant source of comfort to me on Instagram when I was in the throes of postpartum anxiety, making me feel so less alone and batshit for feeling the way I was feeling. She too had a rough postpartum experience, with lots of anxiety. Here she shares her story. Follow her at @jessurlichs_writer on Instagram and follow me at @OwningItPodcast for more.

    Nav's Story: Hitting Rock Bottom to Turn Things Around

    Nav's Story: Hitting Rock Bottom to Turn Things Around

    Join me on @OwningItPodcast on Instagram. This week my guest is Nav Sohanpaul, a South Asian mindset coach from Windsor who has grown up in the Sikh community. She shares her experience of crippling anxiety with me and how she had to hit rock bottom to turn it all around. She shares how the expectation to be a certain way and follow a certain path led her to one day, finding herself on all fours in the grips of a panic attack and having no choice but to acknowledge that her body was trying to tell her something. How would she explain this to her family? What's it like to have mental health struggles in a community where it is still hugely stigmatised as weakness? How would she carve out an entirely new life for herself separate to what everyone else had expected of her so as to preserve her wellbeing?

This podcast is extremely helpful

Thank you so much. This is an invaluable resource for me and I am sure so many people.

Please speak up 😬

Love the content and all the material covered. However, sometimes the host’s speaking is SO quiet, even with the volume turned up all the way on my headphones that I get so frustrated and quit listening. If I do get through enough of the podcast to get an ad, I’m almost deafened because the volume is so high.
