#62 - Living with Anxiety + Destigmatizing Mental Health ft. Annie Jacobsen
Ever since the genesis of this podcast, I've been dying to have this conversation! Today's episode features Annie Jacobsen, one of my best friends, Remote Year travel compadre, former RY roomie and just an all-around amazing human being. She's been on the podcast before (see the rambunctious group interview in episode #8), but I've been dying to have her on to talk a bit more about her long-term struggles with anxiety, what it's like, what the misconceptions and stigmas are, how she's struggled with it, how to better understand it even if you're just trying to support a friend or family member and what it's like to live with anxiety. I'm so grateful to her for sharing her story and for telling some never-before-heard personal stories to paint a really intimate picture of what life with anxiety is like!
WHAT WE TALK ABOUT…
How the logical steps of school, getting a degree and being a D1 athlete helped her naturally manage her anxiety
Anxiety and a lack of control
Managing anxiety through boundary setting, recharging and accountability buddies
What you should and should not say + do if someone you know experiences anxiety
Talking about it + destigmatizing it
Travel and its effects on anxiety
So much more!
