Welcome to your gym for mental health with psychologist Dr. Emily Anhalt. Staying emotionally fit takes work and repetition. That's why this podcast delivers short, actionable Emotional Push-Ups every Monday and Thursday to help you build a better practice of mental health. We'll also share surprising, sometimes funny, sometimes shocking conversations on Taboo Tuesdays, because the things we are most hesitant to talk about are also the most normal. So join us to kickstart your emotional fitness. Let's flex those feels and do some reps together!
