After a short hiatus (because Lachrista's laptop decided to die), we're back! On this episode, Anju and Lachrista are in the same room! This week, we discuss mental health stigmas in a few different life areas. The first: how stigma is different as a teenager vs as an adult; second: how stigma is different at school vs work; and finally: how stigma interacts (or doesn't) in interpersonal relationships.
What if it's more anxiety-producing to be in the present moment sometimes? On our second episode, we discuss how problematic much of the yoga/meditation community can be with regards to distraction (believing distraction is inherently "bad").
On our first episode, we introduce ourselves, our mental illnesses, how anxiety shows up in our bodies/minds, and why we're doing this podcast. We end with telling you what our first topic will be on!
