S2: The Episode on Anxiety

S2: The Episode on Anxiety


You guys asked for this one! Anxiety comes in various forms and is triggered by a range of things rooted in the beliefs of an individual. This episode covers info and insight about, what appears to be, a modern phenomenon; what is anxiety? What are the symptoms? How can I manage it or get rid of it? I explore all of these based on my own experiences related to work, the future, relationships (romantic and non-romantic) and health, as well as drawing on some informative sources. There's also some great mental health accounts to follow for encouragement & tips, PLUS how one London school is going above and beyond to boost the mental health of children!HOPE YOU'RE ALL DOING WELL!_______________Please leave a review or rate me on Apple podcasts if you loved this episode! 🙏 You can also subscribe on Google podcasts, Spotify, Acast, Podbean, Stitcher & many more!

There's dealing with emotions (which is friggin' hard enough) and then there's dealing with TWO sets of emotions in a relationship! No one teaches us how to navigate the road-bumps or sticky situations when dating. IT'S A LOT but it can be simplified with some awareness and pausing before a reaction. This episode centres around respecting your own feelings, whilst appreciating the needs of the other. I open up about my own experiences as well as those of friends; about going back to ex, vulnerability, sexual health conversations and break-ups.___________If you have any questions about relationships, handling emotions or experiences of your own, message me on IG @a_blanx.

Finding A Job You Love

Finding A Job You Love


The age old quest of purpose x getting money continues to rear its head...(it definitely does for me, anyway!). In this age of endless choice, pressure, and influences coming from every direction, anxiety around finding a career is at an all-time high! Years of navigating what I wanted to do in the creative industries and feeling scrambled during my twenties, made me realize that the answer lied between: WHO I wanted TO BE, HOW I OPERATED as an individual, and what I STAND FOR.  In this episode, I talk about how to find a job you love and meaningful work. ENJOY._______ Check a former blog post - '300 Signs You're In the Wrong Job & How To Find Meaningful Work.' Here, I was deciding where my values lied, during a transition - it was an integral part of my journey: _______ Once again, thanks for listening!!

How To Be Alone!

How To Be Alone!


BEING ALONE IS COOL. Period. But it wasn't always seen this way by Western society... This episode is short, sweet and practical. I talk about this odd taboo surrounding being alone, as well as how lone time is beneficial for growth and productivity. PLUS, there are some tips on how to be alone for those who find it uncomfortable or don't always know what to do with themselves... Netflix isn't always the answer (...but sometimes it is). Thanks for tuning in, loves!Further IG wisdom & send your comments/ideas/free cake to: @a_blanx 😎Blog: add an Apple review...? I'd love to hear from you! ;D

A delve into how a young person views the world today... In this episode, I chat with my half sister, Indy, 17, who was born in Ghana and raised in England. We unpack how a dual-culture has shaped her into who she has become, the big pressures facing the younger generation (dubbed Gen Z) today, who inspires her and what she's most looking forward to in the future. Indy is a role model and someone I admire HUGELY. She is bright, conscientious, motivated, dedicated and diplomatic, as well as kind and giving. How DOES she manage it all?!? It was time for her to share her secrets! I'm fascinated by generational differences, and how smart and value-driven young people can be! If you are too PLEASE SUBSCRIBE to, rate or review🙏thank you, thank you.Find Indy on IG: @indy_blankson. My updates on IG: @a_blanx and the blog at:
