Listen to this episode above! (There is no video of this podcast, the universe was not cooperating - it's definitely worth a listen, though - it was a GREAT conversation!)
Jessie Harrold is a coach, women's mentor and doula who has been supporting women through radical life transformations and other rites of passage for over a decade. She is also the author of Project Body Love: My Quest to Love My Body and the Surprising Truth I Found Instead.
In this episode, Jessie and I discuss some of the transformative life experiences women go through (like motherhood, leadership, empty nesting, menopause and sobriety). We also talk about the importance of slowing down, listening to your body and heart and using what you learn to develop rituals of meaningful self-care. Tune in to hear Jessie's famous "pee example"!

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.

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!

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.

In this episode of Bite-Sized Balance, I interview Emily Lynn Paulson, writer, speaker, fellow Certified Naked Mind Coach, She Recovers Designated Coach, and a member of the long term recovery community.
The conversation gets spicy & deep on a few hot topics, including social media and women’s mental health, “grey area drinking”, “mommy wine culture”, the importance of mindfulness when it comes to alcohol and what “true freedom” from alcohol really looks like.
Sober since January 2, 2017, Emily has appeared on media outlets including The Doctors, Parade, Today Parents, and USA Today, discussing how to end the shame and stigma of mental health and substance abuse.
Emily is the author of Highlight Real: Finding Honesty & Recovery Beyond the Filtered Life, and a contributor in Addiction Diaries: Stories of Darkness, Hope, And All That Falls In...
