    My Bipolar Story- It's Mental Health Month!

    My Bipolar Story- It's Mental Health Month!

    Happy Mental Health Awareness Month! 

    In honor of Mental Health Month, It's  time to get down to the nitty gritty of who I am, why this podcast really started or where the idea came from. The story behind That Mental Shit. 
    Who I am now was not an easy journey down some perfectly paved yellow brick road and I think it’s time we get to know each other really well because today I’m going to tell you my Bipolar story.

    Ep. 9 - Setting Boundaries with Alignment Coach Alexandra Jones

    Today is an exciting episode! It's the first interview ever for That Mental Shit.

    My guest, Alexandra Jones, is an Alignment Coach and CEO of The Empowered Collective. She's also one of my best friends and inspires me daily on her mental health journey. I'm so excited to sit down and talk with her today to discuss: Boundaries. This is more like a conversation than an interview, and she will go in depth on the concept of boundaries, how to set them for others but most importantly how to set them with yourself.

    Ep. 7 - The Advantage of Disadvantage

    Ep. 7 - The Advantage of Disadvantage

    Ep. 7 - The Advantage of Disadvantage

    Today’s episode isn’t gonna be just motivation, I really wanna talk about some things I’m learning and a new idea I really think people need to talk and dive more into. And it really goes with what you guys hear me say alot, that there is no excuses for excuses. Like really, I don’t give a shit, there is always a way. So this topic of Mental and Physical Disadvantages and Advantages has become one of my favorites to dive into lately. And I think what makes it so ingtreguing to me is that disadvantages and advantages, are literally just perceptions. Your situation can be whatever you want it to be if you reframe it in your mind. So yes this episode might motivate you but I really would rather challenge your thinking. I really want to help you reframe your mindset and your beliefs about yourself and your situation.  I literally find it so fascinating because I was told when I was diagnosed with Bipolar that it would be the biggest disadvantage of my life.

    Ep. 6 - Feel the Feels

    Ep. 6 - Feel the Feels

    Episode 6 - Feel the Feels

    Today’s episode is about feeling all the feels, processing your emotions, but also not dwelling in your shit. I am a firm believer in the saying, “it’s okay to not be okay” but there is a fine line between dwelling, and letting it take over your life and processing to empower you. You have to feel your feelings, but then you need to use them to fuel your fire to continue on  and conquer life.
