JC is learning to live and lol with his friends: Stress, Anxiety and Depression.
I want to be frank with you and let you know that what I’m doing here is very personal to me. But God-forbid this is one of those corporate-woke, dead-boring types of chats. Ultimately, I want you to have fun if we’re hanging out.
I just want to make things better for anyone listening. It would be totally cool if we could do that together.
Hong Kong is my home and I love the place that I’ve grown up in. However, I’m also very aware that it’s an relentless, highly competitive and fast-paced environment. It’s a Financial Services hub and I’ve been working in that sector since 2007.
Things are convenient in the city. Too convenient. When mental health is an afterthought and addictive substances or prescription medicines are there to patch up the problems, it’s usually too late when we realize we’ve lost ourselves or worse, a loved one.
There’s always an alternative. Whether it’s taking care of your body or your mind, it starts with a chat. Sometimes, you just want to listen and find inspiration.
About the Podcast:
The podcast is ideally targeting men like me, in Asia. The tone is meant to be kept at a casual level (we’re just chillin’), so you can tune in while doing other important things, e.g. on your commute to work or working out at the gym.
My hope is that it provides you with interesting, thoughtful, amusing and sometimes inspiring conversations that you can incorporate into your own lives.
I want us to feel better and feel improved, even if it’s just a fraction better than yesterday.
There is a big diversity focus (and deservedly so) on other minority groups. However, I believe young men today still need a safe space to tell them how to positively motivate themselves, encourage healthy and good behavior and guide them accordingly to remind them that they are worthy. That they’re doing a good job.
There is still a large population of young men in Asia that suffer from stress, anxiety and depression. I want to let them know that their wellness is important too. I want them to know that they’re not alone.
