#104 | Mental Health in Music: Maggie Szabo

Show up & show out.

Suz sits down with Maggie Szabo to discuss crafting pop songs with a message, showing up for yourself and others, and how fitness enables her to manage her mental health during stressful times.

On days when I’m really not feeling it, I’ll just tell myself, “I’ll just go and I’ll go stretch,” or something like that. What always ends up happening is I go, and even though I had the intention of “I’ll just stretch” I go there and everyone else is working out and then I’m like, “Okay, fine. I want to work out, too.”
