Angus Eye Tea: Anxiety, Depression, And Other Cheerful Topics

Hey, Heifers! I tend to take on a lot. Like, a lot. And usually all at once. Upon reflection, I realized that I do this to somehow “make up” for my bipolar disorder. It’s a battle against it, in a way. “See? I can do it all still and even MORE on top of it! You can’t stop me!” Unfortunately, this means that I take on too much, I burn out, and get frustrated. Maybe it’s a form of denial, or maybe it’s me trying to prove myself to others (others who, for clarification, don’t exist). I look forward to our lovely chat today, Heifers!  Moo, Elaine *** If you enjoy this...

Angus Eye Tea: Anxiety, Depression, And Other Cheerful Topics

Hey, Heifers! It’s advice we’ve all received at some point or another. “It gets better.” And while I do believe things usually get better with time–situations change, people grow, opportunities come and go–I know that it’s a phrase that can feel useless when you’re going through it in the moment. I wanted to mull this over with y’all and try to find a way we can use “it gets better” that doesn’t feel like an impossible pipe dream.  As a reminder, y’all are truly the best. Thanks for coming on this journey with me <3.  Moo, Elaine *** If you enjoy this...

Hey Heifers! I was featured in an article recently as one of the ! And I feel pod-validated enough that, yes, I have published two consecutive episodes. But don’t get it twisted–I am still a firm believer in allowing laziness into your life, which is today’s topic! Maybe we don’t always need to be go, go, go.  Moo, Elaine *** If you enjoy this podcast, please consider giving it a review!

Angus Eye Tea: Anxiety, Depression, And Other Cheerful Topics

I know, I know. I am the goal-setting queen. I had a whole goal-setting series at one point. I’ve had planners–sometimes multiple ones at the same time. I’ve made dream boards. I’ve downloaded apps. I did yearly, quarterly, and monthly tarot spreads. I was that goal-setting heifer. But I’m not trying anything for 2022. It’s (hopefully!) less depressing than it seems, which I talk about in this episode. Let's be lazy and have a lovely chat, Heifers!  Moo, Elaine *** If you enjoy this podcast, please consider giving it a review! It also is incredibly helpful for me to...

Angus Eye Tea: Anxiety, Depression, And Other Cheerful Topics

Hey, Heifers! Life can be busy, and when things pick up, it’s easy to let hobbies or things that don’t keep a roof over your head fall to the wayside. It’s no secret that I’ve had a rough go of it, and then a good go of it, and then just . . . a LOT of IT. (The “it” mostly being a mega to-do list that keeps refreshing). Doing this podcast is sometimes like therapy in that it’s good for me to reflect on my life. But, like therapy, sometimes I don’t want to think about my life lol. I’ve come back and I’m going to do things differently from here on out! Thank you for...

Angus Eye Tea: Anxiety, Depression, And Other Cheerful Topics

Hey Heifers! How many things have you wanted to do in your life that you never did because you knew you'd be awful at it? For me it's theater. I've always thought it'd be fun to be part of a musical but in my head I've decided I would be awful at acting and therefore there's no point in trying. But today I'm telling you to ditch that mindset! Obviously there are limitations on what we can do based on our situations. We also sometimes assign these wants to a version of ourselves we'd love to be that we have decided is perfect but may not actually be so fun and great in the end. Today, however,...
