Jessica Hutt: In what ways does your anxiety manifest? What are your coping mechanisms?


Nazanin Mandi: A hectic schedule can spark my anxiety for sure, and that's actually what does it the most currently in my life. When I find myself anxious, I have to take control of my mindset and talk myself out of my negative thought patterns. Working out and hiking does the trick as well. 


Hutt: How has anxiety affected your marriage?


Mandi: My anxiety doesn't negatively affect my marriage at all. Being married actually makes my anxiety much easier to manage because my partner is super supportive and knows how to handle me when an anxiety attack arises. I will most definitely never take this for granted.


Hutt: What advice would you give to someone who is suffering from anxiety?


Mandi: Find something that brings you the ultimate "calm". Examples of this include reading, working out, meditating, and more. Another thing that helps is learning to talk openly about anxiety instead of burying it inside and letting it manifest. 


Hutt: Why did you decide to become a life coach? 


Mandi: First and foremost my passion is acting, but with that said, I still felt a little something was missing. That “thing” was purpose. I asked myself what besides acting lights a fire within me, and my answer was helping others reach their highest potential - whatever that may be. I've always felt the innate need to inspire others, especially women. We all have so much in common, but hardly voice it. It is time to promote unity, confidence, and shut down the self doubt. 


Hutt: Please elaborate on the women’s empowerment workshops you are creating in collaboration with Tangible Movement.


Mandi: Our workshops will be a safe place for women to voice their needs and their fears, and then to find solutions. If they wish to gain self confidence, find their passion or let go of anything that is holding them back, we are here to help and transform. 


Hutt: How has working out helped your anxiety?


Mandi: Working out has been vital when it comes to my anxiety and aiding my relief. It has been life changing and will forever be a part of my lifestyle. The gym is a place to reset not only my energy, but also my mind. Any kind of cardio is exactly the tension release I never knew I needed.


Hutt: What have you dealt with in the world of social media and your podcast that has led to bouts of anxiety? 

Mandi: Being misunderstood is most definitely a common theme when it comes to social media and our podcast. Anything you say can be misconstrued, even if the intent is pure. But at the end of the day, you can't please everyone, and you truly cannot care what other people think, especially when you're being your authentic self.


A special thank you to Nazanin Mandi for her continued partnership with Tangible Movement. We cherish your story and words of advice. Find more Mandi on Instagram and the Ladies Like Us podcast.
