If you’ve ever been hiking in the outdoors, you know that difference that a heavy backpack can make. Each step gets requires more thought, each muscle is strained, and suddenly it’s no longer enjoyable to get to your destination.

Hiking (life) is not always flat and easy either. But if the pack is too heavy it can literally cripple you and bring you to your knees. When you have a bipolar disorder this means you literally experience a breakdown. You’re journey is delayed, or cut off.

In this episode of The Bipolar Now Podcast, Mike shares about the process of discovery that leads to not only a lighter pack, but a journey that unfolds with more adventure and less anxiety. Feeling the overwhelm of circumstances is reduced with a simple, ongoing adjustment to your pack.

FROM THIS SHOW...

 

If your morning time is a source of stress and late-starts, you are among good company. Even “morning people” aren’t born with a supernatural well of happiness that’s tied to the dawn. Good days begin with good routines, and the good news is that they can be created.

In this episode, Philip and Mike share the story of how their mornings came to be and why a satisfying quiet time is such a powerful ingredient for a productive day. They show that with a little intention and some helpful tactics (found in today’s episode freebie), anyone can achieve a morning that sets them up for success.

When fear and dread cloud our thinking, a solid morning routine can provide some much-needed distance and perspective. It’s time to kick worry, depression and negativity in the teeth before you even have breakfast.

Nothing prolongs an episode of bipolar disorder like persistent and elevated stress. Our special brains are uniquely designed without the "shock absorbers" that others have to help them cope with changes and challenges.

So what's a person to do? Well I'm glad you asked!

The best practice in stress management is to attack your trigger(s) with daily rituals that put you in control of how much they affect you.

Listen as Mike gives a special "mini-training" on how to engineer every day with activities that keep the mental beatings at bay!
