In Episode Two of The MyLife podcast, Jarlath welcomes Aisling Bea - actor, writer, and stand-up comedian. Aisling is perhaps best known for her Bafta award winning comedy-drama series, This Way Up, which she wrote, produced and stars in. The second series of the show returned this summer, portraying personal relationships and the complexity of mental health and wellbeing in our contemporary world with refreshing honesty and nuance. Her 2017 Guardian article on the loss of her father at a young age was shared by millions, exemplifying Aisling’s ability to write about human experiences in a way that resonates with the wider world. 
In this episode, Aisling speaks about recent challenges to her own physical and mental wellbeing during the pandemic, as well as tackling mental health stigma through her show, This Way Up. Picking up on Jarlath’s conversation with Gaelic footballer and addiction counsellor Oisín McConville in Episode One, Aisling also shares her tips and practices for managing overwhelm and chronic stress. From creativity at work, to women’s health, and the nature of the Irish Mammy, Aisling and Jarlath weave a vast array of topics into a good-humoured and generous conversation that is sure to support MyLife listeners looking to improve their overall health and wellbeing.
