Healthy vs. Unhealthy Fears

On today’s episode I tackle a hard topic — fear. We all have them and sometimes they even hold us back from doing what we love. And, even if we don’t see them, they’re still there. It’s part of what being human is. A lot of people think that their end goal should be having no fears at all and being completely secure in all aspects of their life, but I don’t think that’s the right goal. Fears and insecurities can actually drive you to do better. In this week’s episode, I want to help you by addressing some of the most common fears, giving you some techniques and systems that you can put in place so that your fears do not become debilitating, and also (most importantly), differentiate between healthy fears and unhealthy fears. Hope you enjoy this short but impactful episode!

We Are Not Powerless

Today’s episode is a complimentary follow-up episode to the recent IGNTD Recovery Secrets episode on connecting to your higher power, I figured it was high time that we discuss the opposite of that; powerlessness. Powerlessness is the idea that we do not have control over any of our circumstances or the actions that we take. It literally means, “Without ability, influence, or power.” In traditional approaches to treating addiction, the idea of powerlessness is often reinforced — but this idea is damaging and simply not true. You are not powerless — even if you may feel you are right now, at this moment. Hope this resonates with you!

How Connecting to a Higher Power Can Give You Purpose

Today’s episode is not your average Friday episode: we cover the idea of believing in God or something bigger than us in life. Religion has been a huge part of humanity for as long as we can remember. We always try to explain the life around us — especially 10,000 years ago when we didn’t understand anything like the sun or the rain. So what I really want to focus on today is the idea that there’s something bigger and the benefits that come from that belief. We hope you don’t shy away and embrace this important topic!

There is more to the impact alcoholism on children than the biological factor (which is often the only one talked about). Stay tuned for a quick yet impactful episode. Enjoy!

"This is Just How I Am” is Bullsh*t

This episode is all about habits. We all have them, whether we realize we do or not. We develop them throughout our entire life — and most of them, we learn super early in our life. The only problem with some of these habits is that we don’t remember how they were formed, and — when it comes to feelings, emotions, and anxiety — we generally just continue to operate with the current habits we have even if the results we get from them are negative.  In this episode, I explain how we can retrain our brain to create new goals, unlearn habits, and where to begin on this journey.
