One of my personal favorite tools for self care are Affirmations. Yes, it is important to continue therapy to help process trauma and pain, but it is equally important to practice self-care the other 29 days of the month. Affirmations are a great way to rebuild your foundation and help you to realize that you are worthy and deserving of all the great things that life has to offer. Today I sit down to have a conversation with ThinkUp App’s Founder, Irit Wald to discuss her journey with affirmations, as well as my own personal progress and growth over the last 3 years using ThinkUp App. Listen in. You can find out more about ThinkUp App and download a free version at www.thinkup.me

Latonia Francois is a life-long writer and the CEO of Let’s Write Life. Let’s Write Life is an expressive, bold, and fun journaling company where you will explore inspirational journals, unique writing tools, and journaling events that will empower you to restore hope to heal, build confidence, and be motivated to pick up your pen and fully discover the limitless purpose your life.

On today’s show Latonia tells us about a time where she felt trapped in her story. Depression hit hard and she could not escape the 24/7 negative thoughts that told her she wasn’t good enough. After taking some time to write about all the pain she was feeling she decided to try something new. She thought, “What if I could make some small changes? What if I could start writing down the things that cause me pain and back away from them? What if I could make lists of things that make me feel good and make sure to do these things more?”

It’s not a quick or easy process. In fact it is a life-long process. But in time she realized that she gravitated more towards the people, places, and hobbies that made her feel good. And with these small changes her mood started to change.

If you are a writer or have been putting off starting your journal you won’t want to miss Latonia’s story.

 Artist and Advocate Jason Paden joins us on the show to discus what it is like to live Mental Healthy.  Jason is a very creative and talented visual artist that lives with Schizoaffective Disorder, a mental health diagnosis that until recently has not been talked about much, even on the mental health advocacy scene.  Today Jason and Joe go into what it was like receiving this diagnosis and how they turned to creativity to give them an outlet of what it was like to have some of these symptoms.  

This is a powerful episode, not only for those living with a mental health diagnosis but also for the friends and families of those that are living with one.  Jason and Joe talk about the compassion they have for their families and how we can’t get caught up in blame.  We must come to an understanding that if we can forgive and accept that sometimes no one has the answers at the onset of symptoms in order to move forward with the healing process.  You can find more of Jason’s work at www.mentalhealthypresentations.com

In today’s episode Joe sits down with Rebecca Lombardo, the Author of “Its Not Your Journey,” to talk about all things mental health.  In the world of mental health advacacy it may seem on the surface that those that have made a recovery or are able to manage their symptoms are living the good life.  That is not always the case.  Sometimes the pressures of having to retell and relive our stories over and over again can wear on us.  Rebecca Lombardo is a tireless advocate in the mental health and writing communtities; and she shares some of the ways that she is able to stay motivated, healthy, and even more importantly not allow the haters to stop her from spreading her message of strength and hope.
