Ask The Coach: Wendy McCallum & Scott Pinyard of This Naked Mind - Burnout & Alcohol

I got to guest host on This Naked Mind's popular podcast last month and the episode is now available to watch, above, or listen to, below.

 

Scott Pinyard, Head Coach of This Naked Mind, and I answered listener questions about how to deal with work stress and how to get back on track with healthy habits after a "blip" or "data point".

My advice around tools for coping with stress applies whether your drug of choice is alcohol, food, social media, or online shopping - so please have a listen even if you're happy with your relationship with alcohol, I think you'll learn a lot!

Annie Grace - Alcohol and Women's Burnout

 Watch the episode, above, or listen, below!

This is a big deal, everyone! I quite literally had to talk myself into even inviting Annie to be on my podcast.

 

If you don't know much about Annie Grace, she's HUGE. I mean HUGE HUGE. She's a big deal and she's the real deal. She also, quite literally, changed my life.

 

I wanted to interview her SO badly, but I found myself struggling with my own limiting beliefs and fears. After a little "self-coaching", I leaned into them, wrote her a long email explaining why she was my #1 dream guest, edited it about 1000 times, took a deep breath, and hit "send" (and then felt slightly nauseous for the rest of the weekend). But she said YES!  (I'm sharing this story to remind you that I'm human, just like you, and that sometimes you just need to feel the fear and do it anyway to get what you want in life.)

 

In this episode, I interview my mentor Annie Grace, the author of This Naked Mind: Control...

Guest Victoria English Martin - Breast Cancer Awareness

Watch the podcast episode above, or listen, below:

 

Victoria English Martin is an integrative nutrition coach, fitness professional, breast cancer survivor, and advocate. She’s also my friend, a Certified Naked Mind coach, and the host of the podcast, After The Crisis.

In honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Victoria joins me to share her personal survivor story and educate women about early detection, risk management, and the importance of advocating for yourself as a patient --in the hope that she can prevent other women from going through what she did. She also shares her thoughts as to how we can best support a loved one going through cancer, which I found to be really helpful advice.

Ask The Coach - How Do I Deal With Cravings?

Watch the episode, above, or download and listen, below!

 

I'm adding a new regular feature to the podcast that I'm hoping you'll love, Ask The Coach, where I answer questions from you, the listeners.

In the first installment of “Ask The Coach”, I answer this question from Shannon, a Bite-Sized Balance listener:

“Every morning I promise myself I won’t eat sugar that day, but every night the craving hits, and I give in again. What can I do differently?”

 In this short podcast episode, I explain how cravings work and provide three practical, bite-sized strategies to diffuse a craving when it hits, no matter what it is you’re craving.

Have you got a burning question you'd love me to answer in an upcoming episode? Send it to me at [email protected] (Please let me know if you're OK with me using your first name on air, or if you'd rather I use a pseudonym -- either is fine!)
