Back by popular demand, I have my great friend Dr. Heidi Hanna back on the Show. You may remember Heidi from her very popular “Real Talk with Brain Health Expert Heidi Hanna,” (Ep. 80; May 2020), where she talks in-depth about stress, mental health and anxiety, and what it takes to get through tough times. 


Well, one year later, we revisit what Heidi has been through and she shares her battle with deep depression for ten months in the last year. She also shares how she ultimately pulled herself out of the dark hole and what she does to best operate and function today. 


In today’s Show, Heidi and I specifically talk about:

  • The honeymoon effect and the disaster recovery curve.
  • The Imposter syndrome, surviving each day of exhaustion and emotional waves of what life has to offer.
  • Ten months of deep depression and the game-changer that started the winning battle.
  • anxiety people are facing.
  • Five hack tips to win the battle of depression. 


Thank you, Dr. Heidi Hanna, for being a guest on the IMPACT Show!
