How do you manage anxiety on a walk?

My wonderful colleague Camara put together this video sharing a few tips that help her with her own anxiety while she’s on a walk.

Most of the time when I’m walking it’s for my mental health, so keeping other people to a minimum is ideal. Here’s my quick list of what I do!

🎧 I also wear headphones! Instead of drowning out the world, I use earbuds with no sound. I can still hear the beautiful ambient sounds of nature (and people around me!) but serves as a signal that I am not looking to interact at this time.

🐾  Bringing my pup! In all reality, walking a 90 lb malamute mix isn’t all that easy, but despite his absolute goofball & timid personality, his presence does an excellent job of keeping distance.

Have you ever heard of a neurodiverse theatre company?

In partnership with EPIC Players, The Mighty went behind the scenes during a rehearsal to see how they make their theater company work for neurodiverse performers.

But what is EPIC Players?

EPIC Players (Empower, Perform, Include, Create) is a nonprofit, neurodiverse theatre company dedicated to creating professional performing arts opportunities and supportive social communities in the arts for persons with developmental disabilities. Via inclusive mainstage productions, musical cabarets, original showcases, skills-based classes and career resources, they hope to increase critical employment opportunities, pioneer increased inclusion in the arts, and break down social stigmas surrounding neurodiverse communities.

Watch our video and if you get the opportunity, go see one of their shows in NYC!

NEW VIDEO: Don't Like the Traditional Pain Scale? Try "The Splat Scale”

As people with chronic pain will attest, the standard pain scale doesn’t cut it.

That’s why for ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia International Awareness Day, we connected with Mighty super contributor, Christina Irene, who created her own version called "The Splat Scale."

Where do you fall on "The Splat Scale?"
