Influential thought leader Mel Robbins joins John O’Leary on the Live Inspired Podcast to share her proven + empowering techniques to overcome negative mental repercussions of the COVID-19 global pandemic.

According to Kaiser Family Foundation, about 40% of Americans have reported symptoms of anxiety or depressive disorder during the COVID-19 pandemic, a 30% increase from 2019.

Today, I revisit my most popular episode to date: My conversation with Mel Robbins. Mel’s proven + simple strategy interrupts negative thought patterns so you can win the mental game and experience the joy + opportunity life has to offer now.
