Episode #20: Erin Bahadur from Erin’s Inside Job on Addiction + Why Mental Health Matters

May 24, 2017

What I love most about having a podcast is the opportunity I have to explore so many different subjects that I haven’t been able to tackle on the blog. From body image to holistic skincare, this show has become my favorite outlet to educate myself and you guys on topics that are oftentimes overlooked in our perception of health.

Mental health is probably the biggest of them all. That’s why I asked Erin Bahadur from Erin’s Inside Job to come on the show today and share more about her journey with all of you.

On episode #20 of That's So Maven, we're chatting with Erin Bahadur from Erin's Inside Job about addiction and why we must not ignore our mental health.

Erin’s journey is nothing short of inspiring. What she has been through may be surprising to all of you, but her honesty and wisdom gained made her the perfect the guest for today’s episode where we explore more about the topic of mental health.

As you guys know, mental health hasn’t always been a breeze for me, and my goal for 2017 was to discuss it more and also shed some light on my story. While I haven’t jumped into my journey in its entirety, I am sharing more in today’s episode. I was inspired by Erin to open up more and I’m incredibly grateful to her for being so candid and motivating others to be more open about their own struggles with mental health.

On today’s episode we discuss:

  • Erin’s history with addiction and substance abuse
  • How to be sensitive to those with addiction and what to say if you know someone struggling
  • Entering into therapy and coming to terms with her depression
  • Medication and when it’s the best course of action for mental health
  • Why she started her blog and how it’s evolved over time
  • How fitness has helped her in her recovery
  • When the book is coming (!!!) and how she’s encouraging herself to work on it
  • The one health-habit she can’t live without

    I think you can be on anti-depressants. I’ve learned as we get older, we tend to get more depressed. I take St. Johns wort from time to time. When I double-dose in it or re-up with Arginine , I tend to feel much happier and positively affect those around me. How do you feel about taking St. John’s Wort to battle depression?
