Know Yourself podcast

Know Yourself podcast
Welcome to the Know Yourself podcast! I’m Dan Udale and I’ve struggled with anxiety and PTSD since I was 16. I’m here telling you my story because I absolutely love and am passionate about shining a light on mental resilience, mindset, and self awareness. I feel this way because of the major impact the tools I have learnt have had on my life and I want to share it to get a conversation going that can cultivate individuals understanding who they are, what their triggers are, that it is ok to feel depressed/anxious/lonely, and that you aren’t alone out there!
