Follow Now: Apple Podcasts / Spotify / Google Podcasts Friday Fix: Episode 100 It’s hard to believe we’ve created 100 episodes already! Creating this podcast during the pandemic has been such an honor. I’ve loved sharing my strategies for building mental strength and I’ve learned so many mental muscle building tips from our guests every single week. Hosting a podcast from a sailboat in the Florida Keys is fun, but it certainly poses a few challenges (like tropical storms). But we’ve met some incredible people. From authors and experts to celebrities and musicians, I’ve interviewed some amazing people who graciously shared their time, their stories, and their wisdom with our audience. To celebrate our first 100 shows, I countdown 10 of my favorite mental strength lessons from the show so far. Some of the episodes I discuss: Brad Stulberg - Rest More. Do Better. Dan Harris - Become 10% Happier Jon Acuff - How to Change the Soundtracks in Your Head Melissa Bernstein - How to Know if You Have Existential Depression James Altucher - Becoming an Idea Machine John Umhau - Secrets to Stopping Alcohol Cravings Dan Gable - Develop the Mindset of a Champion Nora McInerny - Stop the Toxic Positivity Daryl Strawberry - How to Turn Your Life Around Kendall Toole - How to Make Your Mental Health a Priority More About the Podcast The Verywell Mind Podcast is available across all streaming platforms.
