You’re Gonna Be Great!E4-5: Sustaining Recovery & Relapse Prevention With Matt Wright

Hey everyone! This week we're back with another episode of You're Gonna Be Great! My mini-podcast series for the COVID-19 era. My goal was 6-7 episodes and I'm almost there. On one hand, I'm sad to see it coming to an end, but on the other hand, I'm really proud of myself for doing something…

Random Acts of Kindness: How to Support Artists, Small Biz, and Healthcare Workers During Social-Distancing

It's a shitshow out there but I am so Goddamn inspired by all of the random acts of kindness and positivity in the world right now. What better way to cope with such a fucking insane moment in time than to OD on and distribute well-wishes and love? My friend Ivetta is sewing masks to…

Captain’s Log: Social Distancing Day Who The Fuck Cares Anymore?

We've been self-isolating for nearly four weeks. Four weeks without seeing friends or family, without going to a restaurant to sit and stare at other patrons, four weeks without gathering on a front porch with our neighbors to have a glass of wine and catch up on life. It's been really hard. Partly because it…

Coping With Coronavirus: Your Relationship In Quarantine

Hello all! I hope you're hanging in there and being safe, unlike my parents who refuse to follow any of the goddamn guidelines and are GIVING ME ANXIETY. Just kidding, but not really. It's been a tough week and I've been experiencing a lot of emotions. A lot of big feelings. I cried during an…

You’re Gonna Be Great! E2: Talking With Your Kids About Anxiety and Isolation

Hey everyone! So as you might have read on my last post, I launched a very random podcast mini-series about self-care in the time of COVID-19. I had questions I wanted answered and I wanted to help others if I could, so viola. I'm no podcast master (shocking, I know) but I think the information…

Captain’s Log: Covid 19 Social-Distancing Day 9. I Think

Captain’s Log: The days are long, the nights are dark, I have forgotten what it feels like to wear real pants. I feel like now this is a universal dilemma. Okay, wait, stop. I’m lying. I haven’t regularly worn real pants since 2013. For much of my career, I’ve been lucky enough to be a…

Captain’s Log: Covid 19 Social-Distancing Day Seven or Eight

Captain’s Log: It's the seventh or eighth day of social distancing I think. Honestly, I have no idea what day it is anymore. You don't realize how much you need to see other humans in person until there's a pandemic and you're forced to spend your days with a toddler who is smart as hell…

Captain’s Log: Covid 19 Social-Distancing Day Six

Captain's Log Day Six: The neighbors are friendly and we're all about to snap. Most mornings I take my dog and toddler on a walk around the neighborhood. My street is unusually friendly so I'll get stopped a lot to chat. It's street made up mostly of transplants and they've created their own community that…

Captain’s Log: Covid 19 Social-Distancing Day Five

Captain's log, day five of social distancing. Nature is trying to kill us and I don't really blame her. But could we call a truce? The social distancing is hard enough but this morning to add insult to injury, we also had an earthquake in Utah. A fairly big one. And then another one about…
