Moment #1

Recently I interviewed Keisha Yokers to discuss breathwork. She helped me understand that conscious, connected breathwork takes the participant on a deeper inner journey which causes them to let go. This conversation helped me to recognize where I feel emotions in my body so that I can better process them. What’s even better is that now I can help my kids use breathwork to process their emotions as well. 

Moment #2

Sandra Chuma and I discussed how to create and sustain healthy habits. My biggest takeaway from this conversation was that healthy habits don’t always refer to things that we do. Listen in to hear about cultivating some of the most important healthy habits. 

Moment #3

When I was experiencing extreme fatigue, I began researching adrenal fatigue. Dr. Aviva Romm helped me understand what this common term often refers to and why it happens. It turns out that overwhelm and burnout may lead to physiological dysfunction in your body. She explains what happens in the body at a deeper level when we are constantly feeling stressed. 

Moment #4

Lindy Royer helped me to understand what happens when we experience pain. There are emotions and thinking patterns that tie into pain and cause us to behave differently. I learned what I should be doing to help alleviate pain.

Moment #5

As a mom of 4 young children, I am in the thick of a busy season of life. While everyone often tells me I should simply enjoy it since it passes quickly, this advice can be hard to implement. Dorena Williamson helped me to understand how to lean into precious moments. Listen in to hear her thoughts to understand why they resonated with me so much.
