My Just Keep Jamming podcast, v 3.0

Here's the FULL background on my precious little labor of love: my Just Keep Jamming Podcast.

For most of my life, I was reluctant to ask for help. I had always believed that I could handle everything on my own and felt guilty about requesting assistance. As a result, I never took the time to rest, reflect or practice self-care. I was always working, always in a hurry, never stopping to notice that I was only a shadow of the person I wanted to be. However, when the pandemic hit, life pretty much kicked my ass, and I eventually hit a low point. I suddenly understood I needed a drastic change.

I made the tough decision to take a month off and away from my life to completely reset myself and embark on a journey of self-discovery at a holistic mental health and wellness center located here on the Big Island.

During my stay there, I learned some crucial lessons that helped me rediscover myself. I practiced healthy eating, yoga, and meditation, and attended therapy sessions, both group and individual. I figured out my life's purpose, which is to inspire. For the first time in forever, I had the opportunity to focus solely on myself, which was absolutely life-changing. At the end of the month, I was determined to continue on the path of positivity that I had learned there.

All the changes I made caused a shift in my way of thinking. I realized that I had outgrown some of the people in my life. Business partners, band members, friends, and sadly, even the person I had just married. It was scary to experience such growth, and the journey was not easy, but I knew that I had to stay true to myself and what I wanted and needed out of my life. My ultimate goal was to love myself again so that I could continue to give love to the people around me. I even came up with a phrase for it - Aloha Thyself.

Prior to the pandemic, I was already conducting live streams and therapy-style sessions with my friends on Instagram and YouTube. But with the launch of my new Patreon account, I decided to turn these deep and entertaining talks into an official podcast. So in May 2021, I recorded the first episode of Just Keep Jamming, which had a zoom room audience consisting of friends and fans. The theme of the podcast was centered around connection, mental health, and music. Every week, I invite a close friend, a fellow musician, or even mental health professional to join me on the podcast to discuss topics that we might not usually have a chance to talk about. The meetings not only benefited the listeners, but also gave me a rewarding feeling that I was making a positive impact on the world.

After taking a year-long break, I'm thrilled to be back with some fantastic improvements to the production and content. I aim to continue making a positive impact through the power of connection, and I'm excited to see where this podcast will take us.

Our goals are simple: to keep people connected and engaged, to give you valuable takeaways for everyday life, and to create a safe, supportive space for anyone who needs it. We are dedicated to promoting mental health awareness, fostering positive change in the world, and having some fun while we're at it. Make sure to follow me on IG/FB at @anuheajams, and join my Patreon to get full access to the podcast recording process! All the details, including where you can catch me performing live, are on my website :)
