26: Affirmations - 3 steps to bypass your brain’s B.S. radar so they feel genuine AND effective
Affirmations aren’t a new concept. You’ve undoubtedly heard about them and maybe even tried them. But if you’re like me and many of the clients I’ve coached, affirmations can feel disingenuous and dare I say, even “fake.” Plus, if what you’re affirming is in big contrast to your current reality, your brain’s B.S. radar can put up some big walls of resistance. If this sounds like you, or even if you love affirmations and use them, this episode is going to give you 3 specific steps on how to make affirmations feel genuine, empowering, move you to take ACTION in your life, AND get your brain on board.

In this episode, I'm sharing an interview I did discussing how alcohol impacts the brain. I discuss recent research that demonstrates how even "moderate" alcohol consumption changes neural circuits in a way that leads to more impulsive and habitual behaviors even when not drinking. I discuss how alcohol disrupts the gut microbiome, negatively impacting serotonin and dopamine, which regulate your mood in positive ways. I also talk about the deeper subconscious beliefs and unresolved emotions/traumas that may be contributing to the desire/need for alcohol. Whether you drink or know someone who does, there's a lot of great information in this episode.
Special thanks to The Sober Summit and Maggie Klaassens for letting me share this interview.
In this week's solo episode, I'm talking all about the F word - failure - and why in order to succeed in any area of your life, you need to change your brain's meaning of it.
I'm sharing my deep subconscious fear around failure that took twenty years to understand, and the shift that not only changed failure's influence in my life, but changed my brain's need to protect me from it.
If you have any fear around failure at all, this episode is a must listen!
In this week’s solo episode I'm sharing the perspective shift that changed how I felt about my body - and how it can for you too! This discussion is so important for many reasons, but two I cover in this episode are:
1) body insecurity can create ongoing mental and emotional stress, which also negatively impacts your physical health, and 2) body insecurity is often the source of why many people don’t engage in certain activities and more fully LIVE their life.
Improving your physical fitness and health WHILE also living and enjoying your life IS possible. In fact, I’m sharing how this perspective shift can also be the key to adopting and sustaining long-term healthy habits.

What does it mean to surrender? For a long time I thought it meant giving up, but then one night when I was exhausted to the depths of my soul, I realized that surrendering didn't mean I stopped fighting for what I wanted. It meant that I could fight differently. Instead of fighting and taking action from a fearful state of needing to control, I was taking action from a faithful state, trusting and believing that the healing would come at the right time and in the right way.
Learning to surrender takes practice over and over again, and in this episode I'll walk you through the distinctions that changed everything for me and my healing.

Your brain isn’t wired to thrive. It’s wired to survive. So if you just leave everything to your brain, it will want to keep you exactly where you are for "safety" reasons. In this episode, part 3 of a 3-part series on the brain, I'm diving into why understanding this can be the key to finally breaking free.

When we think of the body, we tend to just think of everything physical, but your body is so much more than that. It’s the home you live in! It’s the home to your heart, your soul, your mind, your passions, your fears, and your traumas. It's the HOME to all your life experiences that have shaped who you are and how you think.
Yet so many people feel like prisoners in their body, whether that’s physically, mentally, or emotionally. The next two episodes will address the mental and emotional components, whereas in this episode, I’m going to focus solely on the physical body and the crucial perspective shift that will start to heal your relationship with it. This understanding changed everything for me and it can for you too.
