1. Episode 87--How Renting a Scooter (Almost) Gave Me an Anxiety Attack Billy Lahr 33:36

In this week’s solo episode, Billy shares some exciting travel tips and updates for those of you who’ve got the travel bug!  Billy also extends an invitation to join his weekly virtual mindfulness sessions! The focus of this week’s episode details how renting a scooter (almost) gave him an anxiety attack. For those who don’t know, when you travel to Thailand, the most common and efficient transport vehicle is a scooter, and there’s an abundance of that for rent…but what do you do when you’re too afraid to rent one?! 

Make sure you tune in to understand how a simple 2-wheeled vehicle can trigger so much anxiety and how Billy turned those anxious thoughts into action.

Billy Lahr The Mindful Midlife Crisis Podcast

Billy Lahr is currently the host of The Mindful Midlife Crisis, a podcast for people navigating the complexities and possibilities of life’s second half. Billy spent 21 years as an educator but became disenfranchised the last half due to budding mental health concerns and lack of job satisfaction. In 2021, Billy left his job as dean of students in order to travel the world in search of more meaningful life experiences. Since then, Billy has been focused on helping others navigate their own midlife crisis more mindfully through practical and intentional daily routines that focus on consistency, discipline, and mindful awareness.
