Matt Tompkins, host of It’s The Fix Podcast, talks about recovering from an opioid addiction and coming to terms with his mental illness while managing a career in TV & Radio.
We dive into the differences in looking for a short term fix to issues vs investing in long term fixes. Matt, an avid fitness enthusiast also explains how fitness alone won’t save you.
He tells the story of coming out about his addiction to his coworkers and employers to be surprised at the support he received. Matt also tells some stories about how to relate mindfully in conflict (a popular topic we recently covered with Margo Helman in “Calm in Conflict”) as well as a piece of advice that has become a pillar of the Happy You Are Here show: "Focus on what you can influence. Don’t give your energy to things you can’t control."
