The last 18 months have been exhausting. For many of us, work has gotten busier and we're cooped up at home where it's harder to take a break. Burnout is at a frighteningly high level. What can we do about it and how can you best care for your social impact teams that are doing incredibly important work? There are a variety of different things you can do and today we're covering one of them. Bumble recently gave nearly all its employees #APaidWeekOff to shut off, focus on themselves and combat burnout. LinkedIn did something similar in April – so did Benevity, HootSuite, The Trevor Project and today's guest – Public Inc. Each organization gave all – or a large swath of – their employees a paid week off at the same time. In today's episode, Engage for Good's Alli Murphy is joined by Phil Haid, Founder & CEO of Public Inc. to talk about how Phil and his team made it happen, what the impact was like and his advice for others who are interested in giving it a shot. Tune into today's episode to learn all about: Why Phil decided on a collective week off (instead of extra vacation whenever employees wanted to use it) The steps Public Inc. took to make it a reality What the feedback was like from employees and clients (spoiler alert – it was really good!) Why this is important for organizations in the social impact space How Phil would approach this conversation with a CEO Phil's advice for getting leadership buy-in for #APaidWeekOff Links & Notes Public Inc.

Last time I gave a very brief description of misdiagnosis and an example or two. This is a follow-up to last week's pebble in the road.    If you have a health, medical phobia or descriptions of medical conditions make you anxious, you might want to skip this episode. If you have cardiophobia, stop, do not go on, this is not the episode for you.   Honestly, I got overwhelmed with the number of similarities between mental and physical health issues.   Talk about information overload. So I thought about it and decided to break it up in manageable parts. Why didn't I think about this last week?   Because my tendency is to want to give the whole pizza pie instead of a slice. Except it isn't pizza pie but lots and lot of words. It can be a bit much.   Anyway, this time a quick look at the physical illnesses that can mimic anxiety symptoms.   Resources Mentioned:  CNET video on a possible new treatment for severe depression via a brain implant.    2015 Psychiatric Times, Managing Anxiety in the Medically Ill.    Dr T. Jared Bunch, MD post on Everyday Health on Is It Anxiety or Heart Disease?

This is a quick pebble in the road about misdiagnosis. Ran out of time and have too much to talk about to do a half ass job. So think of this is just a short introduction to the topic of misdiagnosis.  Misdiagnosis can mean a couple of things. Like having a physical health problem but your doctor thinks it is an anxiety condition.   Or you are treated for a physical problem and it really is an anxiety condition.   Or you hit the trifecta of having a physical problem and you also have an anxiety condition.   But wait, there is more. You could have a food allergy. You might be going through hormonal shifts (hello menopause!)   Or a medication you are taking over the counter is producing a side effect.   I could go on and on but like I said, I want to find a way to present the information without overwhelming or yakking on for too long. I'll figure it out.    Hopefully. Resources Mentioned:  Determining Cause and Effect With Anxiety and Hemophilia by Shellye Horowitz via Hemophilia New Today      Never let the dark voice convince you of that the dark is better than the light.

This is the podcast sharing the medical, behavioral health, meditation/relaxation and x=the unknown treatment options for those of us on the anxiety condition or disorder spectrum.   Everything is a story. If you listen to enough marketing people, the story is what makes the sale. Craft a good story and then herd them doggies down the sales funnel to rake in the dollars.    That concept isn't necessarily wrong but it is being seriously corrupted by the venal passions of the money obsessed.   Everything is a story. The story can help, hurt, heal or bring a sense of adventure. Sometimes all of it. And more. No amount of money can be more valuable than a story that heals and provides paths to understanding.   Which is why in this episode, a look at social anxiety disorder also known as social phobia. Through the fictional lens of Mr. Arthur "Boo" Radley.   Resources Mentioned:  From the National Institute of Mental Health, page and brochure to download Social Anxiety Disorder: More Than Just Shyness. On the National Social Anxiety Center page there is a quiz that you can take to determine your level of social anxiety. On that site, there are also self-help videos about aspects of the condition.   Succeed Socially seems to be folks with mild to middling social anxiety. There is a lot of good information on the site but it might be more geared to develop skills not acquired in the past.    However, there is also a specific page about social anxiety/phobia with the clinical definition and treatment options.    The Social Skills Guidebook: Manage Shyness, Improve Your Conversations, and Make Friends, Without Giving Up Who You Are by Chris MacCleod, MSW.    Perhaps this is good for folks  Chis is generous, he/she/they do let you know that almost everything in the book is on the main website. However, if you find value in the information, chuck a tenner into the e-book coffer.   The Andrew Kukes Foundation for Social Anxiety has a YouTube channel that contains interviews with people dealing with the condition and professionals offering tips and advice.  ADAA.org has a seven-page brochure on Social Anxiety Disorder.   Anxiety Canada has nine-page toolkit on Self Help Strategies for Social Anxiety.      If you need support contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, the Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386 or text “START” to 741-741.   Disclaimer:  Links to other sites are provided for information purposes only and do not constitute endorsements.  Always seek the advice of a qualified health provider with questions you may have regarding a medical or mental health disorder.

Hi folks, this is a pebble in the road about finding helpful aids for a better sleep. Being the anxious folks that we are, sleep is not always obtainable or consistent. Especially if you are living the chaotic life.   So there is this product called a Sleep Pod by a company called Hug Sleep. (I think, there may have been a name change) Oh, by the way this is not a sponsored or promotion product. Really more of my opinion about product that claims to help people sleep.   How to describe this thing. To me, it looks like is a giant snuggly body sock for sleeping.  So this is a quick look at the product. Resources Mentioned:  First off you might want to check out the original commercial for the product to see how it works. You can find it on YouTube.   There is a Freakin Reviews of the Sleep Pod, and he didn't like it.   Fast Company has a review of the product and loved it.   Then there is a on Gizmodo, not so much.   If you need support contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, the Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386 or text “START” to 741-741.

I don't know if you have experienced this but either people are telling you that you are overthinking, underthinking or not thinking in the right way. There are reams of books about how to think the "right" way. Especially if you have an anxiety condition. And I know the depression folks catch double hell on it too.   And let's not forget that freak flag that get's waived when someone expresses and opinion as fact and then when you try to educate or provide sources they accuse you of not having critical thinking skills.   Or they really might not have a process to think critically. And they get pissed off that you do.   Critical Thinking has been used as a weapon or a savior when it comes to anxiety treatment treatment.   Most of the time by people who don't know jack about either one.   In my opinion.  The basic process isn't hard to understand.    The implementation depends on the person, your circumstances, education, and life experience.    Critical thinking is a way to evaluate information and make an informed decision or find a solution.    Resources Mentioned:    Who You Were Before Trauma: by Luise Reddemann. English language version published by The Experiment, a division of Workman Publishing. To those of you that are hip, the ISBN is 9781615196166    Critical Thinking definition at Plato Standford Encyclopedia of Philosophy   On the Dummies.com website you can find the book, Critical Thinking for Dummies.    If you don't want to buy the book there is a cheat sheet article that will give you the headline version.    For those of you on the academic tip that cringed in my simplification, there is Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy description for a more academic version of the process.    The Center for Critical Thinking is a non-profit organization that wants to add a fairness, empathetic aspect to the process. The center has where to begin page that is a good entry point.    Brianna Weist has a post on Medium called Logic Lapses Are Giving You Chronic Anxiety    If you need support contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, the Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386 or text “START” to 741-741.

There is a study reported by the medical journal The Lancet about the increase in levels of anxiety and depression during the pandemic.  The first sentence in the report got me thinking.  Mental disorders are among the leading causes of the global health-related burden I have to look up the meaning of burden because I've never thought of my anxiety as a burden. A thorn, a pain in the ass, or at best, this thing that I have but not a burden. It has two meanings. a load, typically a heavy one. Or the main theme or gist of a speech, book, or argument.   The Lancet is a UK publication and I'm an American bringing other meaning to the words used to describe mental health issues.   At first, I took it as the world was burdened with people who have a mental health condition. Then I thought, maybe they mean the people that have a mental health condition that have the burden?   I might be wrong about this, but I think this is the UK's English way of expressing a thesis statement.    In this episode, a definition of depression and negative talk (or cognitive dissonance) symptoms when it comes to depression.   Negative talk symptom isn't the opposite of so-called happy or positive thoughts. It is a pattern of thinking that is designed to invalidate the worth of a person or their value to other people.

There are thinking people on the planet and that gives me some hope. I recently learned about turning a pot pie upside down on a plate or bowl.  This is some genius level thinking that I aspire, to but will never have it the way I want it.    Because the gravy part will seep down to the back of the lid or the top of the pot pie. Then, depending on how fast or slow you eat it, you got gravy and a crunchy lid.    It is also a willingness to see something differently.    F--k the absolutes. Ok we need a few of them but man, we need some mental lubrication that is non-toxic to the body.   In this episode, a short bit of verbiage about how tips may or may not help you and some fellow travelers on the road who really do know how you feel.   The short version is finding your form of acceptance. Adapting a tool or technique that could work for you and factor in some grace for handling what you are facing on the day to day.   It is a lot.

September is National Suicide Prevention Month. To help spread awareness, we're revisiting this very important episode of Wellness Wednesday released last year.  Therapist and social worker Ashley Hutchinson joins us from San Diego, CA via Zoom chat to share her extensive experience, insights, and resources concerning suicide. Having personally suffered the loss of loved ones to suicide several times, Ashley is passionate about helping others prevent this all-too-common tragedy.  Please listen in and equip yourself with the knowledge and resources that may help save a beloved person's life--whether yours or that of someone you know.  Additionally, Ashley has shared her list of favorite resources for suicide prevention and mental health below:   - American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. They have awesome chapters and walks around the country for fundraising and awareness. You can find them at www.afsp.org. Their website also points people to local chapters to be involved with. I have been participating and fundraising in their San Diego Out of the Darkness Walk for years.  - Suicide Prevention Hotline. Anyone can call the hotline 24/7 across the country for crisis intervention at 1-800-273-8255.  - Ethically speaking, if someone is actively suicidal and has a plan, intent, or means to harm themselves it is important for them or a loved one to call 9-11 ASAP or get to the closest emergency room.  - NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is so amazing. They are one of the oldest mental health organizations in the country. They can be found at www.nami.org. They too have local chapters that are bright and thriving and so welcoming!  - CoDA, otherwise known as Codependency Anonymous, is great for just about anyone struggling with self-esteem and relationship issues. They are a 12 step, self-help organization that stems from the AA tradition.  - Catholic Charities offices across the country offer low to no cost therapy which is LOVELY! Our parish has a therapist and our priest is so lovely; he loves talking about mental health care!  - Give an Hour is a non-profit that couples with therapists across the country who donate their time to offer no-cost psychotherapy to military service members and their families. They too have a special place in my heart. You can find them at www.giveanhour.org.  - The Trevor Project has a 24/7 suicide crisis hotline as well for LGBT youth and their number is 1866-488-7386. They do very life-saving work for so many and I have heard their counselors are warm and comforting.  - National Domestic Violence Hotline. They deal with crisis DV situations and they are a wealth of knowledge for anyone experiencing domestic violence. Their number is 1-800-799-3224.      Disclaimer: The information shared in this podcast is the opinion of the speaker, or speakers.

Today I'm excited to welcome Courtney Brame to the podcast. Courtney is the founder of Something Positive for Positive People,  a non-profit organization and podcast series on a mission to dissolve stigma, improve mental health, and promote minimization around sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Courtneys own journey began after getting a herpes diagnosis himself.  After feeling left in the dark with healthcare resources, he began talking to others online, and soon realized the ways in which STI diagnoses had effects on mental health. On the episode today we cover how we can better have sexual health conversations, and in turn, how we can have deeper, more connected and authentic sexual experiences. Courtney also shares how we can become better allies around stigma in general, and cultivate a better mindset around sexual, mental health, and the reality of STIs.  As a quick disclaimer, we do touch on the subject of suicide in this episode. If you are sensitive or triggered around this subject please skip through (14:00 - 19:30). We also have resources below if you are or know someone who is struggling.  As you'll hear in this episode, Courtney's work is dedicated to destigmatizing the connections within the worlds of sexual and mental health. You are not alone.

I was reading an article that said I should eat pineapple to increase my serotonin level.   I also seen other articles about kiwis, avocados and other foods.   In those articles you might find something about serotonin ability to calm you down.    Or to help with anxiety. Or depression.   This one got me a little twitchy. Because the article mentioned the pineapple should be inside of a sugar cake of delight.   This is like a person pointing to the ice cubes inside an alcoholic drink. And trying to convince themselves they are hydrating with water.     Which brings up the hackles in me about so-called superfoods.   The special formulas. And buzzwords on parade.   I think what ticked me off was the implication that the implication of a fruit inside of a sugar based cake becomes a healthy alternative. Posted is the short version because I wanted to say so much and it was coming in a twenty minutes.  I have weed whacking to do so this is the short, simplified version for those who think six minutes is all they can take.

It isn't a measurement of my worth.    I am still in the remembering that thinking error are not me stage.   There are all kinds of thinking errors that can affect you mood or ways of your thinking existence. The overall name is Cognitive Distortion witch can involve about 15 different types of jacked up thinking.    The one I want to talk about today is All of Nothing Thinking. Also known as black or white thinking.   No matter what you call it, it is thinking in extreme. Usually involves reinforcing that you have failed. That you aren't worthy or that once again, you did not perform with absolute perfection.   Which is probably not true. Or just a little bit true. Or it can be true in one situation but shouldn't define your entire reason for being.   In this episode, a look at resources that can help you deal with  one of the cognitive disorders called All or Nothing Thinking.

This is a special episode because we chat with friend and super-human person, Sam Brinton of The Trevor Project (to name only one thing they are involved with) as well as Dr. Jessie Freyermuth (spouse of 1/2 of the pod).  We all read and chatted about the book Tomorrow Will Be Different by Sarah McBride.  This book was unexpectedly sad but overwhelmingly awesome.  Sarah McBride is changing our country for the better with her work in the US Government.   Before she became the first transgender person to speak at a national political convention in 2016 at the age of 26, Sarah McBride struggled with the decision to come out - not just to her family but to the students of American University, where she was serving as student body president. She'd known she was a girl from her earliest memories, but it wasn't until the Facebook post announcing her truth went viral that she realized just how much impact her story could have on the country.Four years later, McBride was one of the nation's most prominent transgender activists, walking the halls of the White House, advocating inclusive legislation, and addressing the country in the midst of a heated presidential election. She had also found her first love and future husband, Andy, a trans man and fellow activist, who complemented her in every way...until cancer tragically intervened.Informative, heartbreaking, and profoundly empowering, Tomorrow Will Be Different is McBride's story of love and loss and a powerful entry point into the LGBTQ community's battle for equal rights and what it means to be openly transgender. From issues like bathroom access to health care to gender in America, McBride weaves the important political and cultural milestones into a personal journey that will open hearts and change minds.As McBride urges: “We must never be a country that says there's only one way to love, only one way to look, and only one way to live.” The fight for equality and freedom has only just begun.

Do You Know Your Why About Medication?

In this week's episode is a look at some of the reasons why we need to look at taking medication. What is the reason? Number one has to be symptom management and control.  Them SOB's have made me do things I'd never thought I'd do. Pour water on my head in a parking lot? Yep. And don't think that won't get folks attention. It will.    Being clear about taking or not taking medication is a process of education. You have to learn what the medication is, what it does for you, what effect it could have on the body?   Need to know what your options are what are the alternatives?    So, as I mentioned last week in the podcast, I'm trying out new things and approaches. I need to up my game. Be better.    So they say. They are probably right.    But I can't do everything when everybody wants me to.   I'm going to try to put out an episode each week. Hopefully. One of the ways for me to do that is alternative between shorter episodes and the long ones.    Not that I go that long. Cuz I don't.   But I think I want to make sure folks get what they need. So I want to try different things. More pebbles in the road. Maybe an audiogram for Twitter every now and again. I like doing deep dives but they take time to research and write.    But I also have to balance the work life, the play life and the anxiety that is generated by being in this life at this time. It is a pip. So yeah, I'm working on stuff. If you need support contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, the Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386 or text “START” to 741-741.
