Friday Fix: Episode 200

The first two years and 200 episodes have been an amazing adventure! When we started the podcast during the pandemic, I wasn’t sure if it was going to be a long-term project. 

I wanted a way to get the message out on mental strength during a time when most of my speaking engagements were being postponed. And, a podcast seemed like the fastest and best way to do that.

It turns out, podcasting has been a lot of fun. I am honored to interview amazing people to learn how they stay mentally strong and I get to share mental strength-building strategies straight from my therapy office.

The best part about being a podcast host is that I get to hear from our listeners.

So many of you have reached out to me on social media to share what’s working for you, which episodes you like best, and what you want me to talk about in future episodes.

It was tough to choose the top 20 mental strength lessons from our first 200 episodes. I learn something from each and every guest we have on the show and I learn more about strength when I talk about my favorite exercises.

So, I chose the episodes that all of you have talked about the most. I love hearing you all share your experiences about the mental strength exercises you’ve been incorporating into your daily lives and the resulting positive changes you've noticed since implementing them.

I’m looking forward to 200 more episodes with new strategies, great guests, and more mental strength.
