Functioning with High Functioning Anxiety with Kasey Best

Functioning with High Functioning Anxiety with Kasey Best - Taryn Swears with Taryn Perry


Ever felt the weight of the world on your shoulders, yet everyone around you only sees your success? Join me, your host Taryn Perry, for a candid conversation with licensed therapist and certified coach practitioner, Kasey Best, as we unpack the complexities of high-functioning anxiety. From understanding how it manifests in our lives to discussing effective support tools, we explore this gripping state of being that touches individuals from all walks of life.

How many times have you found yourself lost in the highlight reel of someone else's life on social media? We've all been there, and in this episode, Kasey and I dive into this digital rabbit hole. We debate the merits of a social media fast, the dangers of the comparison trap, and the significance of creating healthy boundaries, especially for those who use these platforms for business. It's a conversation that'll have you rethinking your next scroll session.

Lastly, we check out the concept of brain dumping, a technique for decluttering the mind, and an essential tool for anyone juggling a myriad of tasks. Imagine starting with a blank sheet and allowing your thoughts to flow freely, then filtering through to determine what's essential and what's not. We give you tips on how to prioritize and what to set aside, providing a clear path through the mental clutter. All this and more inside this episode of Taryn Swears!
