Ep. 2 - Defeating Depression: Dallas Amsden

Read more

With everything happening in the world we need encouragement to stay positive. My friend, Dallas Amsden, ran one trail race. But his main focus is Crossfit.

He joins me for talk about trail running and he also tells his story of walking through some dark days and nights.

The strategy he shares for dealing with these trying times is to take this as an opportunity to learn a new skill. Or build some new muscles. And our mindset is also like a muscle. We can choose to stretch and strengthen it.

One of the most valuable mindset skills is to learn stillness. Practicing meditation or yoga will give you benefits far beyond just a bit of relaxation. For Dallas, and for me, meditation has been essential to keep us moving forward in running and in life.

Defeating Anxiety and Depression with Dallas Amsden

Read more

I invite Dallas Amsden, host of the podcast Defeating Depression, onto the show to share his personal journey of anxiety and depression. Dallas opens up about being a pastor's kid and how his depression and anxiety came to a breaking point where change had to happen. In our conversation, we discuss how mental health is viewed in the church, why so many of us hide in shame of our anxiety or depression and how we can break the unhealthy cycles of coping that we fall into. We also discuss how anxiety and depression are so prevelent when we are in the midst of deconstruction in our faith. Dallas offers encouragement and practical tools for those feeling isolated in their journey. This is a rare, honest conversation on a topic that is so often misunderstood.
