This September is the 10th year anniversary of Your Kick-Ass Life! Over the years, the YKAL team has evolved and grown. In this episode, Liz Applegate, our lead coach here at YKAL, joins me for a conversation about shit that matters.

We are talking about aging, perimenopause, and depression. One of the reasons I wanted to have a conversation about these topics was to shine a light on some of the ways they can show up in one’s life, especially in 2020, and the curveball we’ve been thrown this year.

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • Liz shares her history with depression and antidepressants and how she gave herself permission to seek mental health help. (8:30)
  • I share my experience of how a discussion with my therapist about burnout turned into one about high functioning depression. (19:33)
  • Our thoughts and feelings (and struggle) on being middle-aged. (22:08)
  • What we think about navigating perimenopause. (34:25)
