Adapt & overcome. While Eric undergoes a studio relocation, Jay & Maria have an episode between their therapy sessions. 

As you can imagine, the discussion takes on the topics surrounding the humanness that is modern living and mental health.  Maria reports how she was under stress about a potential lousy midterm grade that was the opposite.  The conversation steers to the worry about outcomes and the pressure that we undertake due to it.  

A sad trombone sound effect leads to discussing what it would be to have that sound as a morning alarm.  Does the day's start with one adverse event have to set the tone for your entire day? The consensus, a single morning event should not set the mood for your whole day leading to more questions. Do we allow things we take in to alter our mental disposition?  Does sad music create a melancholy mood in our day?  

The impact of a daily regimen on a person's ability to get exercise is discussed.  Jay seems to think saving up your activity and trying to make it up in an hour at the gym surely can't be the best way to live.  

The two discuss how we let others' feelings about us dictate our internal feelings.  The reality is that everyone is sitting in fear of judgment so much that they barely have time to notice what anyone else is doing.  What did your coworkers wear yesterday?  The vast majority don't remember what you wore either.  We spend valuable headspace, letting our emotions controlled by worry or the sheer potential of judgment.

Maria has a beef with her local area's surplus of Dollar Stores.  Why are there so many in her neighborhood?  Is the only difference between CVS and a dollar sore just knock-off brands?  Jay complains about all is poor kid knock off cereals.  Maria wants Cocoa Puffs and not  "Chocolate Poofies"  While Jay overdosed on Golden Grahams shortly after joining the army.  Do we fill the holes from our childhood with pleasures today?  

The two wrap up by making the call that bacon only comes from pigs, and it's a hard no on turkey "bacon."
