Stress, Stress, and More Stress

This episode is about stress. Stress is a normal part of everyday life and learning to cope with it is an essential skill that everyone needs to learn. That said, it’s still a piece of crap. You couple stress with mental illness, and it can feel like a ticking time bomb. From feelings of anger and exhaustion, to just a general defeated state that lingers for longer than anyone would like, it’s time to talk about how I try (and sometimes fail) to deal with my stress. Did I mention that this episode is about stress?

Organizing Your Priorities

Hey – you there! Thanks for joining me for another episode of the podcast. This week, I talk about figuring out priorities. What inspired me to talk about it is the fact that I (along with everyone else in the world) have a lot of stuff on my plate that I either need or want to do, and I don’t have enough time to do it all. This caused me to really sit down and figure out what I needed to do to be most successful in the future, and what will make me happier over the duration of my life. With that came a lot of soul searching and thoughts about every aspect of what makes me who I am, what I should do in the future to make me happier, and how my recent revelations can help you in your future as well.

You know, for a marketing professional, you’d think I’d pick a sexier name for my podcast episodes.

Falling Shorter Than You’d Like

There are so many things in the world that we are amazing at, average at, and terrible at. Now, I like to focus on the things that I’m amazing at, and I’m sure you do too (and I’m sure there are a lot of things that you’re amazing at,) but no matter if you’re great at something or awful at it, there is always the chance that you’ll fall short. Whether it’s a test that you thought you got a 100% on but you actually got a B, or you were working on a project at work that didn’t go as planned, we’ll occasionally fall short. For the longest time, I couldn’t get passed that and would hold myself to the unrealistic task of being perfect all the time, but I’ve recently had a change of mind. In this episode, I talk about how it’s okay to fall short on things, and it can actually be something that really helps you figure out what you are good at, and how to prioritize your time.

How to Manage Your Stress

Stress isn’t an easy thing to manage. It’s one of life’s many “things” that seem to beat all rational, and prevent you from thinking clearly, figuring out what you want, and feeling better. This week, I talk about my approach to managing my stress. My system may not necessarily work for everyone, but it works pretty well for me the majority of the time, so maybe it can work for you, too. I hope that something in here can help you out and make the rest of your week a little easier.

The Anniversary of a Lifetime

After years of me putting up emotional barriers, subconsciously sabotaging our friendship and generally being terrible, I can officially say that my girlfriend Alex and I have just celebrated out two year anniversary! In this episode, I talk about how Alex and I have gotten to where we are, and how unsexy a story the beginning really was.
