Made for Meaning: Rebekah Lyons

As a society, we are in the throes of a collective panic attack. Anxiety and loneliness are on the rise, with 77% of our population experiencing physical symptoms of stress on a regular basis. We feel pressure chasing careers, security, and keeping up. We worry about health, politics, and many other complexities we can't control. Eventually we find our minds spinning, trying to cope or manage a low hum of anxiety, unlike ever before.

But it doesn't have to stay this way.

In this episode, Rebekah and Gabe walk through the four rhythms featured in Rebekah's book, Rhythms of Renewal: rest, restore, connect, and create.

You'll hear more about Rebekah's own battle with depression and anxiety and the pathway to establish these four life-giving rhythms that quiet inner chaos and make room for a flourishing life.
