Kava, Loopholes and Mental Fitness

2/9/2024
Dive into this episode where I spill the beans on the chill vibes of Kava and its sneaky anti-anxiety superpowers!

But here's the kicker - I've got this new obsession with my own speech, and it's driving me nuts. Blame it on my OCD, I guess. Join in as I navigate Kava calmness, mental fitness exploration, and the "quirks" of my newfound verbal fixation. It's a wild ride – tune in!
