Dr. Alessandra Wall has quit many things in her life, such as believing she had to be perfect to be good enough, putting energy into doing what's right without thinking about whether it was also right for her, and believing that she would be a psychologist and only a psychologist for the rest of her life.
She was deep in promoting her own business (of helping others) when she realized she had to quit the hustle…to help herself.
Health Optimization practitioner Jason Prall was on track to completely fulfill society’s definition of success: he had a good job, a good salary, two dogs, and had even bought a house. Then one day he realized the whole thing was a charade, because it didn’t make him happy. He realized his number one value was freedom, and that he had to find a way to get there.
But the path wasn’t easy - it required him to face the uncertainty of selling a house and most of his possessions to go somewhere he’d never been and do something he’d never done.
Listen to how he navigated the uncertainty and his tips on how to make your quit as strategic as possible.
Prior to the #metoo movement, many women who had survived sexual assault kept their story under wraps. And for years, this week’s guest Sheree Trask had done the same, which led to years of damage done to her physical health from the toll that keeping such a secret took on her.
Once Sheree began speaking, she realized the impact of sharing her story, both in its ability to empower others to do the same, but also to heal herself mentally and physically.
It’s a powerful story everyone should hear.
When you mention quitting, some people focus only on major things, like jobs or relationships. And while those types of quits can make a major impact on one’s life, so too can the much smaller quits.
This week’s guest, Dr. Greg Kelly of Neurohacker Collective, talks about how the biggest change he’s experienced recently came from removing things from his mornings that help set him up for success the rest of the day. We also discuss other ways to improve productivity, including the product he helped formulate, Qualia.
It’s a new year, which is often when people begin adopting clean eating and exercise habits in the name of becoming healthy. But what happens when the habits that were once aimed at bringing health are taken too far? Disordered eating, body image issues, and orthorexia (an obsession with eating foods that one considers healthy) can develop, sabotaging true emotional, mental and physical health.
Maddy Moon, an author, podcast host, retreat leader and transformational life coach, was involved all of the above, and when she decided it was time to quit, the first step was realizing that the same force was driving all of those behaviors: the need for control. Listen to the story of her journey out of the realms of pain and into the realms of pleasure where she found love for herself and her body.
