Sitting in the Middle of Your Life - Take A Break Right Now
A simple "meditation" to simply take a break from your day and sit in the middle of it. Notice and become aware of yourself in your surroundings. Would you drive through a beautiful landscape with the windows covered? We so often rush through a day and don't stop to experience the happenings of the moment. The sensations, the smells, temperatures, tastes, textures. Let's take a quick break together, right now.  Free anxiety video series:

How to Describe Depression to Someone - My Personal Experience
I'd like to tell you what depression feels like in my own personal experience. If you need to tell someone how you're feeling, this is definitely a definition of depression they haven't heard before.

You are unbelievably strong and we're all rooting for you.  Watch my free 6-part video series about how I overcame anxiety and depression:

Why is it so EASY to Get Depressed and so HARD to Be Happy
We didn't evolve as a species to feel happiness. All your self help gurus are lying to you (while making bank!) We are built to survive, this is the meaning of life. If you want to be happy though, you have to do the work. As for me and those prone to depression or anxiety, I have to and had to do a lot of work and it was all worth it.     As mentioned in this episode, if you're ready to do the work and build that mental muscle and threshold for negative emotion, here's the waitlist for the Conquer Anxiety Program:   Want to chat with me 1-1?

Why I'm Quitting Social Media - A Cause of Concern for Humanity
Before starting Depression to Expression, I worked for a few large social media companies as I mentioned in this episode. I would argue, as many experts would, that social media is one of the main causes of the increase in depression, anxiety, self harm and eating disorders worldwide. From a personal note, I'm taking a break until March from social media but will most likely continue to stay away from it as my mind is so unbelievably clear and simple moments in life are just more beautiful than a phone. You see my friends, moments unfold only for me and those around me, without the obligation to be shared. Think about why you are on social media and whether your consumption is outweighing your creative expression. Enjoy the episode and share with those you love.  Book a free coaching call with me here:

How to Stop Overthinking Your Life - The Future Makes Me Anxious!
I bet that you have really high expectations of yourself, others, and your life in general. Am I right? Well the truth is that it's a really good thing! However...

You're Going To Be Okay (listen on those hard days)
There are times where we need gentleness and reassurance, rather than raw motivation. Just remember my friends, it's a feeling. Feelings evolve and change as its a simple law of being human. When the world seems heavy and against you, the last thing you need is to feel shame and guilt. You did nothing wrong and it's okay to feel what you feel right now. Let it come, let it pass. You're going to be okay.   Talk To Me:
