Jonathan Lipnicki: Be Proactive in Finding Happiness

Jonathan Lipnicki (Jerry Maguire, Stuart Little, Comeback Kids podcast) opens up about his struggles with anxiety, panic attacks, and irrational fears. He discusses his difficulties with balancing the success of his career as a child actor with being severely bullied in school, and the coping mechanisms he has used to deal with bullying and anxiety. Mayim and Lipnicki bond over their martial arts training and the problem-solving it teaches, and Mayim adopts Lipnicki’s mantra. They discuss intergenerational trauma and the holocaust’s impact on familial anxiety, rumination manifested by anxiety, and the non-linear nature of therapy. We introduce a new segment called " Moments of Peace & Calm," and Mayim considers alcohol’s effects on anxiety in another installment of "Ask Mayim Anything."

Theme Song Written, Produced, and Performed by Ed Robertson. Mixed by Kenny Luong.
