Dealing with our Anxiety & Mental Health with Dr. Saliha Afridi | Things My Mother Didn’t Tell Me
We are joined by Lighthouse Arabia founder and psychologist Dr. Saliha Afridi who breaks down everything we need to know about anxiety and mental health. Dr. Saliha tells us how we should treat our mental health like we treat our physical health, something to be cared for everyday. We also discuss anxiety and how our bodies go into fight, flight or freeze mode. Finally, we explore how we can show up for loved ones going through a tough time with their mental health. She introduced us to Mental health first aid which is a training that helps you become a first responder for someone going through mental health issues.If you are currently struggling with your mental health we do encourage you to reach out for help. If you are in the UAE you can find out more about Lighthouse Arabia here, and you can sign up for their free support groups here as well as their course on Mental Health First aid here.

Conversation Starters for Teams | Who Run the Time
If you listen to this podcast you must know that we both love to converse, ask questions, travel down hypothetical routes, and learn things about each other and other people. Actually, did you know that according to a study by Marilyn and her team at Cosmic Centaurs: the more team members share mutual knowledge the more they are happy and perform better at work. So team centaurs created a deck of prompt cards called Cosmic Conversations, helping team members (or even just a group of friends)  learn more about each other through meaningful questions. So on this episode, Marilyn and Rhea decide to take these conversation starters for a test run. We talked about who we think would play the other in a movie, what feedback we had for each other as podcast partners, we had a debate about whether we’d seek revenge on people who have hurt us in the past, and so much more.  Make sure you keep an eye out for the release of Cosmic Conversations on the Cosmic Centaurs website here. Also what are some of your conversation starters? Tell us about them by writing to us on sayhi@whoruntheworldpodcast.com or on our Instagram page: @whorutnehwroldpodWe recently won the Comedy Gold Award at the International Women’s Podcast Awards, and we spent the first few minutes of this podcast sharing with you our reactions.

Establishing & Respecting Boundaries | Things My Mother Didn’t Tell Me
In this episode, we talk about boundaries: how to establish them, how to respect them for ourselves and for others, and why they are so important in the creation and maintaining of healthy relationships.Rhea shares that one of her main obstacles in her dating/romantic life is setting boundaries, always being available to and making things easier for her date. Marilyn on the other hand talks about how her desire to be considered as a good person has made it difficult for her to establish boundaries. Through our stories we pinpoint how we can create boundaries all while being true to ourselves. Finally, we take a look at our own friendship and whether we respect each other's boundaries. We’d love to hear from you! How do you view boundaries? Is it easy for you to establish them or to respect them in others? Write to us on sayhi@whoruntheworldpodcast.com and follow us on Instagram on @whoruntheworldpod.
