Description

Do you love trying different things for your mental health and figuring out which ones work? And then sticking with them, but also letting yourself switch it up when the routine isn't serving you anymore (and NOT beating yourself up about it if you miss a day/week/whatever!)? This week's guest is all about that.

X. Ari is an alt-pop singer, writer, and mental health advocate, who’s life motto is all about turning “Pain Into Power.” She does that through her music, and by sharing her own struggles with mental health online and in-person, speaking at schools and other events. She’s so open about everything from anxiety to psychosis, and what self care activities help her get through it all. She even launched her own non-profit, called WisdoMania Foundation, that offers Songwriting for Wellness workshops to schools and communities.

And for Mental Health Awareness Month - which is MAY, aka right NOW when this episode comes out - X. Ari is celebrating by putting on a whole festival dedicated to mental health, called WisdoMania Fest. It’s virtual, so you can tune in from home on May 15th and 16th, and try a huge variety of different self care activities, like meditation, yoga, art therapy, songwriting for healing and journaling.
