Play It Away’s Video Trailers

Here are all the videos I did for Play It AwayInstead of just having one trailer to promote the book, I wanted the videos to be standalone pieces of content — a series — about overcoming anxiety.

My friends Tim Stiefler and Mitchell Shotts shot and edited the videos. Then Jake Jorgovan put some finishing touches on each of them, just to make them more visually interesting (5 minutes straight of anyone talking to the camera gets a little stale). All three of these guys were great and really easy to work with.

    Dude, your line about “eyeing everyone like they were judging me” has plagued me for years! Still trying to figure this one out honestly.

    I’ve found diet to be the single biggest factor in feeling better mentally. I used to be in a constant state of brain fog and anxiety until I switched to a modified Paleo diet.

    Like you, I now typically structure meals around protein, veggies, and a healthy side. My go-to quick meal at home is eggs, spinach, and lentils.

    As for eating around other people, my experience was the opposite of yours though. I had a lot of friends or family who ate terribly so I felt judged for wanting to eat healthy. This would cause me to give in to the pressure to binge on pasta, pizza, breads, etc.

    Eating alone at home was way easier for me because I could be my healthy self without judgment.

    Guess I need to make more healthy friends!
