Julie Bowen: There is No Normal

Julie Bowen ( Modern Family, Boston Legal, Happy Gilmore, Quitters podcast) opens up about anxiety, the ambivalence of motherhood, and the steps she takes to stay grounded. She takes us through her anxiety journey in the early days of antidepressants, her meditation methods, and the importance of not waiting to seek help. She and Mayim discuss parenting children with vastly different baselines and the negative effects of physical punishment. Mayim breaks down therapy flooding and explains why trauma is not a prerequisite for mental health struggles. Mayim considers the dynamics of partnership and the benefits and disadvantages of being an introvert in another installment of Moments of Peace & Calm.

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