Today’s podcast episode addresses an often overlooked component of health and wellness: mental and emotional health. My guest Amy Clover of StrongInsideOut.com shares her personal experience with dealing with clinical depression and obsessive compulsive disorder, and the role physical fitness can play in mental and emotional health. Amy also talks about her 30×30 Project where she is on a mission to raise awareness and funding for mental and emotional health issues.
In this interview Amy and I talk about:
- Amy’s personal experience with clinical depression and obsessive compulsive disorder and the turning point that moved her towards reclaiming her health.
- How one of my least favorite forms of exercise can be beneficial for mental and emotional health.
- How an organization is making it “cool” for teen agers and young adults to seek help.
- How Amy is going on a 30 city tour conducting bootcamp fitness classes to raise awareness and donations for mental and emotional health support.
