Dive into my most badass tips for unleashing your health, happiness, and success on the daily.
The last 2 weeks we've talked about how trauma affects the brain (giving you an external locus of control, reduced impulse control, and impaired memory) and how trauma affects the body (reduced metabolism, fibromyalgia, autoimmune disease, just to name a few).
And after hearing all that, you may be feeling a bit hopeless, wondering if your past trauma is going to define and limit the possibilities for your future.
It isn't. Not if you're willing to do the work.
Now before you click away thinking 'the...
My narcissistic relationship triggered my autoimmune disease.
Yes there were certainly other factors at play: diet, genetics, birth control.
But for years I couldn't speak my mind for fear of retribution. For years I was on high alert, unsure what would set him off. For years I felt like I was crazy, having every word twisted and turned against me.
My body's defenses were chronically waging war against the ever-present emotional threat and eventually turned on me, attacking my own thyroid...
For years I've said that the negative emotions and experiences we don't process and release get stored in the body. Sometimes as fat, sometimes as illness, sometimes as injury.
It always sounded 'woo woo' when it came out of my mouth, but finally I've discovered a book that scientifically backs up this intuition.
'The Body Keeps the Score' by Bessel Van Der KolK, MD, is one of the most comprehensive books I've ever read on trauma, how it affects the brain and body, and how to heal...
"When you're not used to being confident, confidence feels like arrogance.
When you're used to being passive, assertiveness feels like aggression.
When you're not used to getting your needs met, prioritizing yourself feels selfish. Your comfort zone is not a good benchmark." - @cosmicteaholisticshop
A friend shared this quote with me recently and boy did it hit close to home.
I've been a passive people-pleaser most of my life, and while I've spent years working through that in therapy, my limits have been...
KETO. IS. DANGEROUS.
Ok, after a doctor recommended my client be on a ‘keto lifestyle’ for no good reason I had to create this episode and VENT!!!
Understand, I would take no issue with keto if it wasn’t actively dangerous.
I have known multiple people who had life-threatening complications happen because of being on keto.
NO DIET SHOULD EVER COME WITH THE THREAT OF LIFE-ENDING CONSEQUENCES!
The cliff notes?
Keto makes your body highly acidic which is the perfect environment for pathogens to...
I am so excited to announce, today we celebrate our 100th episode of the Life Unleashed Podcast!!
When I first started this podcast with my girl Gio, I had no expectations, no idea how long it would last, no idea if anyone would listen.
I really just wanted a way to get more information and inspiration out to more people and I wanted to do it in a way where we could have deeper, more impactful conversations than an Instagram post.
Now, 100 episodes and over 10,000 downloads later, I've...
Do you ever feel like life is just sort of happening to you?
You meander through your days on autopilot. From home, to work, and then back home.
You absently kiss your partner. You passively play with your kids.
And while there are occasional moments of sheer and utter joy like on your wedding day, or during your yearly vacation, by and large it feels like you're just passing the time.
What a shitty way to live when you put it that way, huh? And unfortunately, it's how must of us sail through life, from cradle to grave.
Listen to the Podcast episode:
Do you struggle with finding balance in your relationship?? Whether it's balance with work, life, and romance, balance with money, or balance with giving and taking, you've got to have the tools to pull things back into alignment when they fall out of equilibrium.
And establishing this stability within the tumultuousness of 2 entrepreneur's lives is something my boyfriend Bryan and I have deep and intimate knowledge of.
So in today's episode of Life...
Hey!! I hope this blog finds you well. I hope it finds you happy with your job, in a loving relationship, with overflowing self confidence, health, and joy.
But what if it isn't? What if this blog is finding you barely able to make it out of bed. What if it finds you with that too-familiar dark cloud hanging overhead? What if it finds you just trying to make it through the day?
Well, I'm hoping, if that's you... today's episode might help.
Because today we're talking about the inextricable link...
