The last few episodes of Oh Crap! haven’t been as upbeat as Jamie’s usual output, but it’s important to address the more serious side of introducing your children to the world and dealing with the not-as-fun aspects of parenthood. To conclude this series, Jamie is looking at how mental health affects our parenting, specifically focusing on anxiety. We all need to discuss mental health in a serious and proactive way, while still giving one another the love and encouragement we all deserve.
In this episode, Jamie discusses the different forms of anxiety, explains how you can begin to treat each kind, and gives you permission to not go to that big event you’ve been dreading.
The Finer Details of This Episode:
“For me, self-care is about mental health.”
“A lot of what we know is not set in stone, and this goes for nutritional research.”
“If you don’t feel good all the time it’s worth doing your own research to figure out why.”
“You are not showing up fully as a parent if you are suffering from anxiety, depression or other mental health issues.”
“If your family’s toxic, you have every right to cut them off.”
“Don’t throw yourself under the bus for someone else.”
“Stop looking for the bad; look for the good.”
“We have to confront what our
anxieties are so we can keep our kids safe.”
