Jason talks about anxiety, creating your own sanctuaries and an alternative to new years resolutions. While the new year is a time for change, it’s also the perfect time to reflect on everything you’ve survived and that’s something to be proud of.

Anxiety, the Mask, and Being Myself

Looking for Spoons Podacast, a podcast about living with anxiety disorder

Looking for Spoons Podacast, a podcast about living with anxiety disorderI talk about anxiety, the mask and being myself.
