Medication doesn’t “fix” anything. It makes it so I can deal with the actual problems, rather than making the problems feel and seem insurmountable.

You guys….this episode hits me in all the feels and I don’t say that lightly…at all. Each guest and episode is so special to me but this one is extra near and dear to my heart as we talk about depression and showing up as your rawest, most vulnerable, most mundane self.

Megan Dowd calls herself a compassionate hardass and I can soooo relate. She’s also master of funny faces, business therapist for neurodiverse run businesses, and all around delightful human being.

Megan and I talk about the importance of sharing our stories with healthy boundaries, toxic positivity (listen in on one of Megan’s spicy soapboxes on Insta), and ways we can tune into our bodies and give it exactly what it needs whether that’s a rage walk or a calming, relaxing bath.

This episode is incredibly relatable, down-to-earth, FUNNY, and full of amazing tips on learning to listen to your body and giving it what it needs during a depression cycle. I so hope you listen in and share with friends + family that could use some real, practical advice with a heaping of laughter and realness.

MEGAN DOWD is a business coach and brand therapist. She launched her business in 2017 to help purpose driven business owners rediscover their Core Values and reclaim their WHY.

When not helping you run your business seamlessly and coherently, you may find her hanging out with her mad-scientist husburrito, dismantling diet culture, or droppin’ it like it’s hot (living room dance party, anyone?).
