John Bair on Depression, Anxiety, and Strength Training – The Pat Flynn Show
As much as I have loved all my podcast episodes, this one may be the most important.
John Bair, strength coach, owner of Bair Knuckle Strength, joins me to discuss subjects that aren’t talked about, or at least not talked about enough: Depression, anxiety, and struggles with mental health.
This episode starts out on somber ground, as John and I open up about our struggles with (him) depression, and (me) anxiety, but soon turns into an optimistic and hopeful discussion, as we outline the methods we’ve used for turning these disorders around, starting with acceptance, and then taking action. Strength training, of course, being a big one. But we dive into meditation, and a few other approaches, as well.
If you’ve ever struggled with depression or anxiety, our hope is this episode beams out a ray of optimism, shows there is a way through all of this, and that you can take control (and eventually overcome) these issues with the right approach, and the right community.
Or, even if you’ve never struggle depression or anxiety, it’s likely you know someone who has, so we do our best to take that into account, and give a perspective for people in support roles, as well.
Please share this episode. It couldn’t be more important.
