Episode Highlights

In this episode, host Faith Hill interviews Nicola Bird, the founder of A Little Peace of Mind

Nicola talks of the effects of a busy mind and fast thinking, of chasing a high salary and, eventually, burnout. She takes us on her journey and how she has learned to manage her anxiety and fear, sharing some nuggets of advice.

Nicola struggled for years with anxiety and panic attacks and at times couldn’t even leave her home for weeks at a time. No one knew. To the outside world she was a high-performer: high academic grades, running her own successful business, living all around the world and happily married with three beautiful children. But inside she was full of fear and on the verge of panic a huge amount of the time.

Duration: 40 minutes
