    Manage Anxiety & Overthinking + Banish Poisonous Phrases w/ Meredith Arthur! (The BEST OF Unleash)

    Manage Anxiety & Overthinking + Banish Poisonous Phrases w/ Meredith Arthur! (The BEST OF Unleash)

    Hi my dear creative cutie! Today's best of episode is another amazing one. Honestly, one of my favorite conversations EVER! I think it has some of the most tangible takeaway of any show or any topic I've ever done on the pod. If you struggle with your mental health - especially anxiety, overthinking and depression, this episode and the tools Meredith offers, will be so very helpful to you. I also loved listening to it because it is a snapshot of the show at a very specific time. It was July 2020- the height of the pandemic and I think I was so far from being burnt out at the time-- I hear all this energy and polish in my voice. It makes me excited for the me I might meet again after this rest and revaluation. I hope you're doing well in this time. Enjoy this episode- even if you've already heard it, it's worth the re-listen...There was so much that I even forgot! Original title and description below. OH! Also, I have a show in LA coming up on Wed, 06/01 at 8pm at Urban Press Winery in Burbank, CA. Link to get tickets here: https://shows.fanflex.com/artists/xcJ1j3C4ia2T3jlEdsze/campaigns/gcqCWfXwox1YuBjacivk

    Original Show Description:

    Meredith Arthur is a mental health pioneer, author, Emmy-Nominated creative producer, and a content leader at Pinterest. She’s best known for being a founding member of the food site: Chowhound, creating the mental health wellness site/community, Beautiful Voyager, writing for Medium and for her debut book, Get Out of My Head: Inspiration for Overthinkers in an Anxious World.

    I wanted to have Meredith on the show because she has so many actionable tools to help you get out of your own way. So many creatives are overthinkers...Including myself...If we get stuck in our heads, it really can keep us from meaningful opportunities to express ourselves, so I am excited to share her insight to help you stop the anxiety feedback loop!

    What anxiety REALLY is and some great ways to manage it
    The benefits of anxiety medication
    How to find your ‘audience’
    Methods to shut up the inner critic
    The best way to let go of the illusion of control
    Tips to eliminate bad mental habits

    Inside My Mental Health Journey + An Update on My Break - The BEST of Unleash!

    Inside My Mental Health Journey + An Update on My Break - The BEST of Unleash!

    On this "Best of Episode" I re-air the episode where I detail every step of my mental health journey and how you can do the same for yours. BUT before I get to that, some exciting announcements about an award the show won, as well as an update on what has been happening since I took my break, plus insight on why I chose to re-share this episode with you. Original show description below! 

    But first, here's the link to get tickets to my show tonight (05/04) it's at 8pm at Urban Press Winery in Burbank. Tickets here: https://shows.fanflex.com/artists/xcJ1j3C4ia2T3jlEdsze/campaigns/rvHyntab12ywCp7BZiFm 

    On this episode of the pod, you guessed it: I, your host (Lauren LoGrasso) will be sharing my full mental health journey- from my family history, to childhood, to  how I got to where I am today--in a good place with and most importantly: aware that my mental health is something that needs to be tended to. My hope is that in hearing my story you’ll: 1) Be able to trace the lines of your own mental health journey and gain some new insight about yourself 2) You’ll go onto share your story with someone else so that we can all become part of the destigmatization of mental health and 3) To really share all of who I am - what I am finding is that we cannot fully appreciate the good and the light without acknowledging and owning the dark, too - you must feel it to heal it. 

    Please note: we (My associate producer Emily (who acts as a guide for this episode) and I) talk about some sensitive topics including anxiety and depression, body image and eating disorders and also physical abuse/violence. If any of those topics are tough for you, please keep that in mind before listening. Love you and thank you for holding space for me today as I talk through this vulnerable subject!
