In this latest Fund81 podcast episode, I share my 2020 plans for the Fund81 forum and podcast, and a few reflections from my short bout of holiday depression.
Despite the fact that I have a wonderful life with many blessings to be thankful for, I have always struggled with depression over the holidays. Because of the work I’ve been doing in Conscious Leadership, my holiday depression was shorter and less biting than ever before. I also better understand the causes of my depression. However, my depression still reared its ugly head. I’m sharing some of the lessons I learned from this experience in hopes that it might help others who struggle with holiday depression and depression in general.
A few of the articles I mentioned in the episode are as follows:
