Do you ever feel as though you need an EMOTIONAL detox? Often we are carrying so many unprocessed emotions that we walk around feeling overwhelmed and even confused by all that we are feeling. Today we have an expert on all things emotional detox, Sherianna Boyle. Sherianna specializes in the “Cleanse” method that she uses to help her clients process through and detox unprocessed emotions. Today she explains her seven-step process and shares with us how judging and resisting emotions can keep us stuck and interfere with our mental health and growth. We dig into what Sherianna calls “emotional suppression” and how we should view our emotions not as the enemy, but rather as nutrients that we need to fully develop and be mentally strong. She walks us through an energetic understanding of emotions and how energy is simply “movement". We also walk through an actual exercise where Sherianna helps me detox one of my emotions through a simple process that only takes about ten minutes! You get to hear the exercise and the results that I had live on the show-- it’s astounding! We hope this conversation gives you another tool in your tool kit for combatting your own mental struggles. Know that we are all walking through this together and as Sherianna reminds us, we need to “cleanse” everyday!

Many people come to me looking for a quick fix to resolve some of their mental health struggles. The first thing I always ask them, regardless of their situation is, "Do you know you are worthy of being healed?" More often than not, they respond, "I don't know." This month, we have been talking exclusively about the idea of loving yourself and being your own advocate. The deeper I go into my own healing journey, The more convinced I become that this is the first step and foundation of true mental wellness. However many of us have never been taught or developed the SKILL of putting ourselves first and practicing regular self-care. In today's solo episode, I share with you my own self-love practice and break down many myths surrounding loving and accepting yourself. Until we practice self-love it is VERY hard to heal and we have to learn to accept ourselves FULLY, even in the midst of deep pain. I break down my morning routine, weekly "thank you" gifts to myself, and how these small acts can champion the deep inner healing that many of us are seeking. We also talk about how to be more self-aware and recognize when we are saying “no” to ourselves too often and “yes” too much to others. I also want you to know that we never "arrive" and will always be learning and growing in this area. We would love to be your support system as you practice self love! Find us in our private community "Hope to Recharge" by searching for us on Facebook. Also if you have your own self- love practices we would love to hear them!

This month we are talking about the practice of self-love. In theory you may be drawn to the idea of implementing self-care routines and learning to love yourself, however it is often  more difficult to practice than we anticipate. Sometimes it is easy to compare yourself to others and be your own worst critic. Today I have the honor of introducing you to Dr. Jane Tornatore who shares with us her own journey of letting go of perfectionism and learning to love her-self despite all the “imperfections” that she saw. Dr. Tornatore is a therapist and author and helps her clients reframe how they view “healing” and helps them rewrite unhealthy belief systems. She challenges the notion that there is anything inherently “wrong” with us and encourages us to lean more into who we are and love ourselves unapologetically. Today we break down how we can find the courage to be more human, understand the deep rooted belief patterns that we developed as children and how they are affecting us today, and understand where judgment of ourselves and others comes from. I know that you will love this interview as much as I enjoyed talking with Dr. Tornatore. We hope that these tips empower you to begin the practice of loving yourself and if you are already on the journey of self-compassion we hope this amplifies your efforts, because you are worth it. Please connect with us in our private Facebook group, Hope to Recharge for more tips and support.

As mothers we are always putting others before ourselves and serving our families in ways that often go unseen. We are also wearing many other hats and putting ourselves continually on the back-burner and sometimes even neglecting our own mental health.  Today we have the honor of hearing from Dr. Claire Nicogossian as she shares with us how we can practice proper self-care as mommas and why it is so vitally important. Dr. Claire Nicogossian is a clinical psychologist, author, and mother of four girls. She knows first hand the stress that comes with motherhood and she is able to couple that along with her knowledge of psychology to help moms practice self-compassion.  In this episode, we dive into the different layers of being a mom, how we can properly cope with stress, not feel guilty practicing self-care, and how to put our mental health as a priority. We also discuss how to move past feelings of “unworthiness” and why there is no measure of worth for the work that we do as moms. Dr. Claire encourages us that it is OKAY to have feelings of overwhelm and what you are experiencing as a mom may be more common than you think. She gives us some helpful advice on how we can deal with our “shadow” emotions and why we must communicate with our loved ones what our boundaries are. We hope this episode encourages you to practice self-care and show compassion for yourself as a mother. We are here for you and would love to connect in our private Facebook group: Hope to Recharge.

We are celebrating one full YEAR of Hope to Recharge and I have learned so much over the past hundred episodes! Before embarking on this journey, I thought I knew a lot about mental health, but after interviewing so many experts and hearing others’ stories, I realized how much more there is to learn, and how REAL the stigma around mental health really is. Sometimes knowledge is everything. There is not enough education about mental health, how to heal, and the hope that we do have. This was an amazing year, but there is still so much work to do. Thank you for your support up to this point, but let’s lock arms and make the next one-hundred episodes even more impactful for those who desperately need hope. To lay the foundation for healing we are going to spend the next month digging into the topic of Self-Love. If we do not have a foundation of self-love our healing journey will be much more difficult. Sometimes we resist the idea of loving ourselves because it sounds “selfish” or self-absorbed. However, the truth is, until we believe that we are worthy of healing we will not fight for ourselves. If you need additional support (we all do!) find us on Facebook, Hope to Recharge. We have a private community who will stand in your corner and support you in your healing journey.

Sometimes life hits you with events that will literally bring you to your knees. Even if you have never struggled with mental health issues before, you can find yourself in a dark place very quickly and struggle with thoughts that might surprise you. Today we are joined by my friend Christian Hampshire as he shares with us about his struggle with mental health and why he openly talks about his experience with suicidal ideation in hope to break the stigma around mental illness and help others to not feel alone. Christain found himself a few years ago with a dark depression and considering taking his own life after losing his job and struggling with drinking. Although he was an avid athlete and accomplishing physical challenges that many of us could only dream of, he still was left wondering if his family would be better off without him. Today he shares with us how he was able to pull himself out of that dark place and why he is now passionate about sharing his story in order to help others who may be struggling as well. We discuss what family members can do for their loved ones who are hurting and how we can find the “controlables” in our own lives to improve our mental health. This is a powerful story that I cannot wait to share with you. If you or someone you love are struggling with thoughts of suicide please find the suicide helplines below. If you need additional support in your mental health journey we would also love for you to be a part of our private Facebook group Hope to Recharge.

Do you ever feel like you need to change who you are in order to fit into the rest of the world? Have you ever dealt with feeling “unseen” by those around you and struggle with a sense of belonging? This week we are with the incredible Jen Gotch who shares with us why there is an “upside” to being down. Jen is the co-founder of the multi-million dollar business ban.do and credits her mental health struggles to some of the successes she has had in her business and in life. In today’s conversation she opens up about her personal relationships and how they have influenced her mental health journey. We discuss the signs of being a highly sensitive individual and how we can use these qualities to enrich our lives. Jen shares why she believes that mental health struggles don’t just stem from one isolated event but rather are an accumulation of several factors in our lives. We also dive into finding your purpose, aligning with your truth, and establishing healthy boundaries within your life. Jen encourages us to “pay attention” to what the universe is trying to tell us and lean into what feels right for YOU. We hope this episode encourages you to find light at the end of any tunnel you may find yourself in and discover the “upside” of being down.

What is it like to live with Bipolar? If you are struggling with a mental illness it can feel incredibly isolating because of the stigma attached to your diagnosis. Today we have an incredible guest, Sara Benbassat, who generously shares her story in order to break the shame around Bipolar and humanize the experience that many people face. One of the goals of Hope to Recharge is to break the stigma around mental illness. As Sara mentions in today’s episode, mental struggles are more common than we may like to admit and it is likely that if you do not struggle personally, there is someone in your family that does. One of the ways that we can break the stigma is to hold space for the experiences and stories of others. Sara shares about the mental health climate in London where she lives and what it was like when she first started experiencing signs of her illness. She walks us through her journey of having psychotic episodes, being admitted into a hospital, and the pain of being taken away from her daughter. We walk through navigating relationships and discovering your identity after experiencing trauma. Sara also talks about the process of forgiving and giving yourself grace during difficult times. As she says, “everything is a process” and although the journey can be long, you do not have to suffer in silence. We hope this story brings you clarity about the diagnosis of Bipolar whether you are walking through it yourself or you have a loved one who is. The journey does not have to be walked through alone. We would love to support you. Simply head over to Facebook and type in “Hope to Recharge” and you will find our private community.

We have been discussing gratitude extensively on the podcast for one year and to close up our season of “Attitude of Gratitude” we are hearing from THE authority on gratitude, Dr. Robert Emmons. For over 20 years Dr. Emmons has researched, taught, and wrote about the topic of gratitude concluding simply that, “Gratitude Works”. In our conversation he shares with us how an assignment to study gratitude changed the course of his own life and gave him the opportunity to understand one of the most powerful tools that we have available to us right now. He shares that, “Gratitude is the truest approach to life” and we can CHOOSE to walk in gratitude no matter what our circumstances. He believes that “Gratitude energizes and shapes the future” and actually “frees” us in our day-to-day life. We also discuss the routine of gratitude and how we can develop the habit while our lives are already so busy.  We hope that you enjoyed this episode and loved this series of Attitude of Gratitude as much as we have. Moving forward we are going to be focusing heavily on building our community. Find us on Facebook at  Hope to Recharge.

Join us today as we are celebrating ONE HUNDRED episodes of our show! This journey has been incredible and the way my own mindset around mental health has evolved has been life changing. Today I tell more of my personal journey and share a couple of stories that I have never told publicly before. I want to be transparent about the process of breaking the stigma in my own life in order to empower you to release the shame you may have about your own mental health journey. We dive in deep to topics around belonging, processing through difficult emotions, and the identity shifts that many of us face as we evolve through the years. If you struggle with feeling alone or wonder if you can live more authentically, I hope these stories help you to fully be yourself and feel a sense of community. I also share with you about our vision moving forward and how we plan to serve this community at a deeper level. We would love to hear your thoughts and invite you to be a part of our tribe.

As we approach our 100th episode I thought it would be appropriate to celebrate our milestone Attitude of Gratitude by interviewing someone who I credit for my gratitude practice, my own father. As I have mentioned on the show before my parents raised my siblings and I to look for and express gratitude on a daily basis. As an adult I am incredibly grateful for this being instilled in me, because as we discuss on the show, gratitude enriches your life in every way. Today my father shares with us the origins of his gratitude practice, including stories about his father which created a legacy of gratitude in our family. We also talk about why he believes that practicing gratitude is like a “dinosaur” and the responsibility we have to carry on the practice and train our children to be grateful.  He says, “The world is in search of people who demonstrate gratitude” and we hope this episode not only encourages you to continue your own practice but to also train your children in the importance of gratitude. We would love to hear from you! Did you parents teach you gratitude? How are you training your children to be grateful?

What voices do you listen to? There are voices we carry with us as a result of trauma or heartache that can be difficult to silence. Sometimes these voices dictate aspects of our lives and the decisions that we make. How can we tune in and listen to the voice of truth about who we truly are? Today I have the honor of introducing you to J.S. Park, a hospital chaplain and author who is passionate about holding space for the pain of others and guiding us to Hope. Joon (J.S) shares with us about his draw toward working with those who are hurting and how his own healing came about as a result from helping others. We talk about finding self-love and compassion for yourself and how we can balance this with self-growth. We also discuss our hesitancy to “live out loud” and how we can align ourselves with who we feel called to be.  Joon also shares with us his tips of navigating anxiety and how we can find “glimpses” of hope throughout our day.  This is a powerful episode that I promise you do not want to miss. Please connect with us in our private Facebook group Hope to Recharge and let us know your thoughts about these topics. We would love to hear how you show yourself compassion and silence the voices in your own mind that are not serving you.

This past week has been especially difficult. We have been navigating a hectic schedule coming out of Passover and adjusting to life at home during Covid-19. In today’s episode I am going to share with you about a powerful moment where it was brought to my attention about something special I could be grateful for. With the stress and anxiety that many of us are facing it is easy for us to overlook the daily support that we are receiving from our loved ones. From our partners pitching in more, children helping each other, friends bringing us a smile, or parents who are calling in more often, there are so many moments and relationships to be grateful for. Right now we need more connection than ever. I want to encourage you to take the time today to not only pause and acknowledge those you are grateful for but to also take the time to express your gratitude to them. There is always something to be grateful for and it is so therapeutic. I invite you to hang out with gratitude today!  We hope this episode encourages you that you are not alone.

What IS trauma? How can we better understand it in order to heal and move forward in our lives? Today we have a timely episode with an incredible guest who shares with us why trauma looks different person to person and why it is so important to look at the individual when looking for means of healing. I have the honor of introducing to you today the one and only, Dr. Pelcovitz. Dr. Pelcovitz is a clinical psychologist who has spent his entire career teaching and conducting research on a variety of mental health topics including today’s topic, trauma. He shares with us the definition of trauma and how there are many individualistic variables in how we interpret and heal from our own personal trauma. In this powerful interview we dive into topics like how to build resilience, the importance of receiving and giving “non-judgemental” support, and why he believes there is always hope. We also dig into the importance of educating loved ones on the topic of trauma, the importance of “desirable difficulties”, and why he believes mental health issues have been on the rise. We hope this conversation sheds light on the difficulties you or your loved ones have faced and gives you hope that there is healing and we can experience a new tomorrow.

This week we released an episode with Dr. Frier on the topic of grief. I decided to release the episode a little earlier than we had planned because of all the grief we are collectively experiencing through the coronavirus. Although I have not personally experienced the loss of someone very close to me, I have been thinking so much about the topic and have many questions around grief. The main question that I have been contemplating is, “Can we practice gratitude while we are grieving?” Today I explore this topic with you and share with you what I am learning as I listen to podcasts, explore scripture, and speak with friends who have experienced deep loss. Although I am still processing through this, there are some interesting conclusions that I have come to that I share with you today.  We also dig into why we should not speed grief or compare losses. And how grief can actually accelerate gratitude, which doesn’t mean the pain goes away, we simply find meaning in the pain. What are your thoughts on this topic? How do you conceptualize the topics of grief and gratitude? Find us in our private Facebook group, Hope to Recharge and let us know.

Losing someone you love can feel unbearable. Walking through grief and navigating the emotions that come up even years after your loss is a journey unlike anything you will experience in this life. When the loved one that you lose is a child, the grief can be overwhelming. Today I had the honor of connecting with Dr. Eric Fier, a psychiatrist who not only understands grief  from a professional standpoint, but also a deep personal level. Dr. Frier joins us in this episode to share his powerful story of losing his daughter, how he conceptualized the process of grief, and how he brings life and hope to the topic of loss. He says after he received his daughter's diagnosis, he knew he had to “reconceptualize everything” and the conclusions that he came to about the purpose of life and death is unlike anything I have heard before. In this conversation we not only hear this moving story but also dive in deep to how to find “joy in pain”, embracing challenges by seeing the “opportunities”, how pain is “not relative”, and why we should never say “why me” but instead say “what now”. We also have a beautiful conversation about nature and the implications of stopping, being still and hearing what the world is “singing to you”.  We hope this interview brings you hope if you are experiencing or have experienced a loss.Or perhaps if someone you love is grieving we hope this conversation may bring you some insight on how to better understand them.

This is a special week as we enter into Passover. It is allowing me to reflect deeply on the meaning of the holiday and all the little things that I have to be grateful for. Today I share with you about the moments of gratitude I have found and the importance of leaning into the “small things” that will completely change your perspective. Usually on Passover I have twenty to thirty people over to my home, but in light of the pandemic that is sweeping the world, we just have those who live in my house which I am actually excited about. Last night as we gathered in the kitchen I was reflecting on everything I have to be grateful for and the abundance that is around me. Even with everything going on, I encourage you to find the small things in your day. Your gratitude will begin to amplify. Even around holidays, in the midst of all the work, let us lead with a full heart and enter into our celebrations with gratitude. What about you? What are the small things in your life that you are so grateful for right now? How are you celebrating the holiday?

Sometimes the trauma that we carry is completely unconscious. At times this trauma can affect not only our mental health but also our physical health. Today we connected with the incredible Fally Klein, who is a hypnotherapist, author, and breathwork practitioner who will help us uncover another powerful tool in our healing journey. After walking through a diagnosis and recovering from cancer as a teenager Fally was introduced to the concept of energy and the power of the subconscious.  Fally shares what it was like to navigate the emotions and stigma that came from having cancer at such a young age and what she learned from it as a result. She experienced a miraculous healing that she believes set her on a path that she was destined to travel. Today we dig into powerful topics like, how resilience factors into our healing, paying attention to the “signs” in our life that are trying to lead us in a certain direction, and how hypnotherapy can bring healing much quicker than we think. She also shares about her work as a sex therapist and how she is able to work with clients who may have unconscious sexual trauama. Lastly we talk about how through years of experience with hypnotherapy she found her “home” when she discovered breathwork. She says that breath is the most “powerful nutrient” in our body and how we can reap its benefits through simple daily practices. We would LOVE to hear from you!

After dealing with my own sickness this week, I was reminded of the power of gratitude. Today I share with you about my own journey of “saying goodbye” to my sadness. There was one day specifically that was really hard for me. We have several friends who are losing loved ones and even sick themselves. I found myself going into a dark sadness. I allowed myself that time to hold space for those emotions. At the end of the day, I realized that I needed to shift out of that sadness for my own well being, so I had to say goodbye. There is a time and place for everything. I even thanked my sadness because it has a purpose in life as well.  I realized more than ever that I have the power to choose. Sometimes we need to choose sadness and other times we need to say goodbye to it. We have to leave the dark places and choose gratitude. What about you? Have you allowed space for sadness? How are you processing through what is going on into the world? We would love to hear from you and be a part of your community! Find us on Facebook, Hope to Recharge. Because as always, together is better!   My Poem: Tonight I decided: To say goodbye to sadness,  To thank it for coming in to hold space for my pain, for existing when I need comfort and support.  For letting me practice the concept of holding space for others' pain, for understanding how life is so unpredictable, for giving us time to process. Now it's time for me to welcome light and joy, To focus on my blessings, To continue counting my blessings, To invite much more blessing and healing into the world, So I can beg God to send healing light through gratitude and not through pain and anger. So my kids can be happy when mommy is happy,  So I can focus on my inner strength and continuing to stay mentally healthy, I now choose to live with abundance and not sadness. I choose to welcome the bigger meaning behind something I don't understand instead of being frustrated that I don't understand.  I am grateful that I have a choice. A choice to choose happiness. A choice to smile about what is right here, right now.  A choice to live this very moment with love and happiness. A choice to bring comfort to my broken heart.  A choice to accept that I don't understand and I probably will never understand everything and that is okay. A choice to send much love and hope through energy when I cannot do it physically. A choice to turn to God for love like a little girl wanting a hug from Daddy when she feels scared. A choice to be ok. I'm smiling and crying and that's OK! I'm welcoming lots of inner strength.

My guest this week, Mark West says he believes that  we “all have a runner in us”. Mark is a long distance runner and mental health advocate who is using his platform to not only encourage everyone to adapt a running routine into their life but do so to improve their mental health. Today we learn about a tragic accident that sparked Mark’s passion for running and how fitness was later used to help him when he started struggling with depression and anxiety.  We talk about the metaphor that running represents in mental health, allowing us to literally (and figuratively) put “one foot in front of the other” and view the “hills” in our lives as opportunities for growth. We also talk about what it has been like to be a high achieving male and be so vocal about his mental health when the stigma around men and mental illness is very real.  Mark also shares a POWERFUL insight on why walking and running might be a better option to talk to people who are struggling than “going for a coffee”. He shares about how this journey has opened his eyes to the importance of empathy and the need for us to discover “what works for us”. This was such a profound episode with many insights about mental health and opens the conversation about the variety of ways that we can find healing. However we want to hear from YOU! Do you use running or fitness as a way to cope with your mental health struggles? Find us on Facebook (Hope to Recharge) and let us know!

Why am I talking about gratitude? Why is my tone so upbeat? When there is so much uncertainty in the world, when so many people are afraid, I truly believe this is when gratitude is most important and key to shifting our mindset during all the uncertainty.  This doesn’t mean that the pain doesn’t exist. However when we tap into our gratitude (and there is always something to be grateful for!) it gives us a moment to disconnect from fear. Gratitude is like a blanket of comfort during the darkest of times. Sometimes the outside world is our security. When it seems to be crumbling down, gratitude is what shifts us from a state of stress to a place of calm. Today I walk you through the good we have in our lives right now and how we can (and should) be increasing our gratitude practice.  I also wanted to share with you a story about a woman I met at Walmart and how important it is for us to show kindness and gratitude to those around us. I want to challenge you to be a light when the world seems to be in darkness. Now more than ever we need to be that light. We would love to hear from you!

Today we are digging into how we can better understand our emotions, improve our mood, and gain control of our thoughts! We have the perfect person to guide us in this conversation, my friend and incredibly accomplished therapist, Elisheva Liss. Elishiva shares with us about why she was originally drawn to the mental health field and what she has found in her years of research and countless hours spent counseling individuals and couples. She breaks down for us the process of narrative therapy and how we can rewire the way we think and view our ever changing emotions. She shares with us about the “triangle of relationships”, why we should never “gloss over” our emotions, and why there are times that we do NOT need to have “positive” thoughts (instead opt in for “healthy” ones). She also shares with us a few techniques that we can start using today (like the “but” technique!) that will help us to better frame our thoughts and ultimately improve our mood. We end the conversation with a powerful dialogue about relationships and how we can use this information to deepen our connection with not only ourselves but with those we love. I know you are going to learn so much from this conversation with Elishiva. Please connect with us in our private Facebook group, Hope to Recharge, and let us know what you learned!

In the midst of the coronavirus crisis, I wanted to come to you today and talk about the role of gratitude during this stressful time. Like you, I am balancing work, children, being home, and navigating my own mental health while the world is in a panic. I wanted to share with you how gratitude is helping me get through this difficult time.  Gratitude shifts our energy. Not only individually but it also has an impact on our energy collectively. Even if you just take thirty seconds today to feel gratitude you will make an impact in our collective energy (which we desperately need!). Fear is more dangerous right now than any virus. Now more than ever it is important for us to take care of each other and our own mental health. I also wanted to remind you that anything can change instantly. We have seen how quickly things have shifted to tragedy. In the same sense, I want to present the idea that things can change for the good very quickly as well. We need to remember how lucky we are and how beautiful life was before. Take a look back and embrace how much we had to be grateful for.  We are living in the best time of technology.

If you are trying to balance being a mom, a wife, working, and trying to have somewhat of a social life, it can be overwhelming. It may even be tempting to look at someone else’s life and wonder how they are balancing it all so well. Today I had the honor of connecting with the host of the Mom to Wife Plus Life podcast, Jennifer Reed, to hear about her journey of “balancing it all’ while navigating the ups and downs of her and her husband's mental health. Jennifer generously shares with us her story of coming out of a domestic violent marriage, struggling with “mom guilt”, navigating her husband’s PTSD, and also feeling pressure to have everything figured out. She wants to encourage other moms and wives that sometimes “life is hard” and that’s okay! In this episode we talk about why we don’t have to always “fix” what’s broken, learning how to disconnect and be present, the importance of self-care, and why you SHOULD be talking to yourself! We hope this episode encourages you that you do not have to have it all figured out and that we are all in this together.

Today we are coming to you with a bonus episode to address the anxiety you may be feeling over the Coronavirus.  We are going through a difficult time globally, however we are also connecting in a beautiful way. There is so much support in the world and that is bringing us together.  Although we are not as scared of the virus, many of us are terrified of the implications of the global fear. I want to share with you in this episode not only a new perspective on how to view this crisis but also the implications it may have on our mental health.  There are many things that we can do to be productive during this time. There is so much that we can access here and now instead of consuming ourselves with the unknown. We live a life that is so fast. We are having an opportunity now to stop and pause to not only be with our families and learn something new, but also be able to tune in and grow inwardly.  At times of crisis we have an opportunity to draw in closer and grow together. We need to use this opportunity to tune in, be with our families, and be a role model of what it looks like to come out of the other side of a crisis shining. We would love to connect with you! We want to support you during this time. Find us in our private Facebook group, Hope to Recharge.

In today’s episode of Attitude of Gratitude I want to share a story with you about an incredible act of kindness that I received last week and the ripple effect that it had not only on my life but in the lives of others. I truly believe that random acts of kindness can become extraordinary moments in our lives with powerful lessons within them.  I am starting to feel like one of the luckiest people in the world due to the mentors in my life, and that includes a recent stranger that I met named Kelly, who provided a powerful lesson for me on kindness and gratitude I want to inspire you to go a little further in your gratitude and trace back how kindness has affected many moments along the way and pay it forward. Remember how you felt when you received kindness and pay it forward to someone else. There is so much to be grateful for! We hope this encourages you on your mental health journey!

Can what we eat have a drastic effect on our mental health? Is it possible to heal our brains and be able to rewire years of conditioning through things like changing our diet? We are bringing a favorite on the show Dr. Selena Barlett, back for her third appearance to discuss the implications our diet has on our mental health. Dr. Barlett is a neuroscientist, with a background as a pharmacist and has an intimate story about how she and her family were deeply affected by mental illness. Make sure you check out episode seven and episode seventeen where we dig into Selena’s story as well as a deep dive into the topic of neuroplasticity. In today’s episode we address how food, specifically sugar, not only affects our mood but also has addictive components comparable to alcohol and drugs. Selena shares with us again about rethinking how we view “mental health” and understanding how “brain health” or “brain fitness”  is really what we are after. Selena teaches us about the link between stress and food consumption and how we are self medicating through sugar and how we can actively retrain our brains to handle stress in a healthier way. As she advises, stress will not “go away” so we have to learn how to handle it in a different way. We want to encourage you that none of us were trained on how to properly take care of our brains, and our culture reinforced addictive eating behaviors. However, there IS hope! Selena says that she believes neuroplacility is our “greatest hope” and that it is never too late to develop new habits and rewire our brains, which will help us not only to cope with things like depression and anxiety, but possibly even eliminate it. We would love to be your support in your mental health journey!

As Brene Brown says, “There is never joy without gratitude, they are both connected!” I have been experiencing that a lot lately. So I decided on today’s episode of Attitude of Gratitude, not to teach about gratitude like we normally do, but instead PRACTICE gratitude with you, the listener. Are you ready? Whether it was taking the time to listen every week, leave a review, write a comment, or give me a suggestion on how to make this show better. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you. I wanted to spend a moment and share with you what your support means to me. Thank you for trusting in my voice, my thoughts, my journey, and allowing me to share in my experiences so that I can help others. We are all in this together, I cannot do it alone. I also am going to share a challenge with you for the next week where you too can practice gratitude and pay it forward. The more kindness and gratitude we can spread in this world the better it will be. Find us over on Facebook, Hope to Recharge, and share with us what you are grateful for this week.

Do you ever feel trapped? Like there is no way out of the difficult situation you are in? This week we are talking about the power of choice, the importance of understanding our self worth, and getting out of toxic and even abusive relationships. In today’s episode I had the honor of connecting with Angeline Mitchell who is on a mission to help men and women become unstuck and break the silence around abusive relationships. She is also a coach and the host of Let's Break the Silence and Take Your Life Back Podcast and she uses these platforms to help her audience “unleash their personal power.” Angeline shares with us her story of healing from a relationship of domestic violence and the critical moment in her life where she “drew a line in the sand” and decided that she deserved more in her life. She believes that building confidence was key in her journey and we discuss how we can build confidence through practices like gratitude, affirmations, and surrounding yourself with the right mentors.  We hope this episode encourages you that even if you feel stuck you are not. As Angeline shares, “We all have choices.” If you feel alone or need extra encouragement please connect with us in our private Facebook Community, Hope to Recharge.

Last week was an incredibly difficult week. My youngest child was very sick and there were several things going on in my personal life that made the week very challenging. Several times it felt as though I was at a breaking point, so I used gratitude to recharge and help ease me through anxiety and sleep deprivation. But that's not what this episode is about… I wanted to share with you an exercise that I did right after the week was over, my son was back at school, and things had calmed down. I carved out time to intentionally sit down and reflect on the week and find sixty things that I was grateful for in the MIDST of the struggle.  Going through this exercise was so impactful that someone else even noticed that my energy was higher and that I was in a state of peace. Why should we stop and reflect on hard times and find gratitude afterwards? In this episode of attitude of gratitude, we dig in deep to the benefits of this practice and give tips on how you can implement this into your day. What about you!? We would love to hear your thoughts about this practice or if you have any tips of your own concerning gratitude. We are all learning and growing together!

What is happiness? Is it something that we earn? Something that is dependent on outside circumstances? Is it something that we can experience even in the midst of mental health struggles? This week I had the incredible honor of connecting with someone that I have looked up to for a long time,  the co-founder of Happiness Studies Academy, author, and Harvard lecturer Dr. Tal Ben Shahar. Dr. Tal shares with us about what research has found out about happiness and what we can do to add more of it into our lives. He shares with us the importance of healthy relationships and how the quality of these connections matter more to our happiness than outward success and achievement. He shares that the happiest countries in the world have been found to place more emphasis on relationships and how we can use this information to draw closer to the people in our lives. He also shares with us his own story of struggling with unhappiness and how his deep inward journey led him into his life’s work. Dr. Tal has concluded that happiness is not a destination, rather it is a journey that we are all on and states that we can live in it no matter what our circumstances are. He also lets us in on what the five elements of happiness are and why goals are simply the “means to the end”. We also talk about happiness through the lens of mental health struggles and Dr. Tal gives a compelling case of why some level of ‘crisis” is needed for “significant growth”. He shares with us the difference between sadness and depression and why the first step to happiness is “embracing unhappiness”.  Dr. Tal also gives a few practices that we can implement daily to increase our happiness.  I learned so much in this interview and I am so excited to get to share it with you. What do you think about the topic of happiness? What stood out to you about the research that Dr. Shahar shared? We would love to hear from you!

Today we are going to talk about being grateful in the midst of disappointment. In the past, when I was expecting something, or excited about an upcoming event, I would be extremely disappointed if it didn’t work out. It would actually affect my mood to a point where I would get into a very negative place.  After practicing mindfulness, I slowly started to rewire my mind that when I now experience disappointment I can actually experience GRATITUDE in the midst of it. Why? Because I have seen that often when something doesn’t happen the way that I expected, it is actually a blessing in disguise.  Even if I cannot see it in the moment, I know that there is something bigger at play that is making things move in my favor. I have had to learn how to trust God and know that all things are working out in my favor. Again as we have talked about before when discussing gratitude, this is a muscle that we have to build and develop. Experiencing disappointment is hard. However often there is nothing we can do, so we have to ask ourselves how we can bring positivity into the situation.  What about you? How do you handle disappointment? What from this episode will you start to practice and implement into your life? Let us know! We have a thriving Facebook community we would love to invite you to. Search for us at Hope to Recharge.

Are there “good” emotions and “bad” emotions? Should we push away feelings of sadness or anger and seek to immediately replace them with more “acceptable” ways to feel? How about our mental health? Should we admit when we are struggling or hold back our struggles in order to not burden those around us?  This week we are talking with the incredible Zahraa Surtee who is a mental health therapist committed to educating others about emotions and breaking the stigma around mental health.. Growing up in a traditional Indian culture, Zaharra shares with us that it was unacceptable to share your emotions and admit that you were struggling. As a child this left her confused about how to find the support that she desperately needed. As someone who was in tune to her emotions, not having the “language” to express what was going on internally was incredibly difficult especially after enduring a tragic loss in her family. When she grew up,  Zahraa discovered a deep love for psychology and eagerly pursued a career in therapy. This gave her the platform to speak on the cultural implications of mental health and the importance for us to acknowledge how we truly feel. In this powerful conversation, we also talk about the importance of acknowledging the uniqueness of everyone’s journey and why admitting how we feel is truly a strength. We also dig into our role as parents and how important it is to be “conscious” throughout our parenting journey. We discuss how we can intentionally provide a space for our children to feel seen and heard.  What about you? What are your thoughts around our emotions? Do you feel guilty feeling certain ways? How can we hold a space for others who are struggling?

Today I wanted to share something with you that I have noticed about myself. In the past, I used to ask my extremely positive husband and father to “tone it down” with their positivity. I would question why they were so happy and why they intentionally chose joy everyday.  I did not understand how anyone could live in such a high vibration simply by being alive. I later realized that by questioning their joy I was actually interfering with it. I wanted to bring them down to my level of comfort. I didn’t realize that my low energy wasn’t able to handle their happiness. As I have worked on my own gratitude and my own energy has shifted, people now ask me the same questions I use to ask them. “How can you be so happy? How can you find so much joy?” It is difficult to walk through life and maintain joy unless you are intentional with it. There is a lot of negative energy in the world.We have the power however to amplify joy and positive energy through practices like gratitude and developing the habit of seeing the good. It’s not always easy, but now after experiencing its power I am more passionate than ever and want to share these practices with you. Gratitude is a choice that we make. We want to support you as you make these choices yourself and walk in a lifestyle of gratitude.

What do you do when you are struggling with your mental health and you are not feeling supported by your family and friends the way you wish? This is a question that I am often asked and is a common concern in the mental health community. This is our last episode in our solo series where I am diving into my own story of healing which included, finding the right support. I want to honestly share with you a perspective that you may have not considered when it comes to your loved ones. Sometimes it is difficult for those that are the closest to you to fully understand what you are going through. It can even be stressful because they may not have the language to support you the way they wish they could and they also might feel overwhelmed because they are carrying the weight of your struggles. Although this may seem like an impossible situation with no clear solution, there is a practical approach that you can take that will not only help you find the support you need but also be a relief to the ones you love. Tune in today to hear how I found support outside of my friends and family and why I recommend that you do the same. Speaking of support, we would LOVE to be a part of your community. Find us on Facebook, Hope to Recharge where we will lock arms with you and be a support when you need it the most.

On today’s episode of Attitude of Gratitude I wanted to follow up on the book that I have been reading, Making Miracles in 40 Days. I mentioned that I was starting this book back in episode six (listen here) and that I would be returning to share with you what I learned.  I am almost done with the forty days and to be completely honest I had a difficult time for a while going through the practices. There is a heavy emphasis on feeling (and being grateful for) the negative experiences that we have.  Although this is a great practice I did not feel right placing too much attention on the negative emotions that some of the practices encourage you to do.  I eventually had to stop these practices because they were not surviving me. I was however able to adjust it and enjoyed what I learned moving forward. I wanted to share this with you because it is important for us to pay close attention to what works for us and what doesn’t. Just because something is in a book or a teaching, and may work for others does not mean that it will work for you. And that is okay! What is important is that you are turning inward and making decisions based on what feels right to you. All in all I think this is a great book especially for those who are beginning their gratitude journey. I would love to hear YOUR thoughts about this book or what I shared with you today.

Do you feel truly supported in your mental health journey? Do you wish that there were more people for you to talk to and lean on when you are going through a difficult time? This week, I am excited to share with you about a company called Squish, which is looking to solve this problem and bring hope to the mental health field. In this episode, I sit down with John Lang and Max Fritzhand, founders of the amazing APP where they are seeking to “squish” the stigma around mental health by bringing together those who struggle and creating a supportive environment where people feel safe to share about their journey. You will hear the interesting backstories of both of these young men, how they met, and what they are hoping to create in their business. We also discuss the implications technology has on our mental health, the surprising stats they have uncovered in their research, and how we can use this information to play a more active role in our own mental wellness. We hope this episode encourages you to find the community support that you need. We cannot do this alone.

We lost a giant this week. The loss of Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and the other passengers was a trauma that we collectively experienced. Many of us did not know him personally, however we felt as though we did because of the impact that he made on our lives. My son asked me an important question. I was in the middle of my “Smile for the Day” and he asked, “How can we smile during such a tragedy?” I am incredibly grateful he brought this  question up because it is one we must ask ourselves. How can we find light in the midst of dark times? How do we hold space for loss while still continuing our life with gratitude? Life moves so fast. We are not guaranteed another day. That is why it is so important to live a life of intention and walk in gratitude for the moment. Let’s show up with gratitude in honor of Kobe. Let us continue in our missions, because I truly believe that is what he would have wanted. Every moment is a gift, let us be grateful for that gift. We would love to hear from you!

Sometimes we just need a break. We need to step away, perhaps even go outside, and give ourselves permission to simply BE. This week I had the honor of connecting with a young woman who has learned through her own mental health journey about how powerful a break truly can be. Celina Celeste is no ordinary young person. After walking through her own depression she decided to take her mental health into her own hands by stepping outside of the box of what most people her age are doing and begin an inward journey of healing and self discovery. After walking through two major social media breaks and making outdoors and travel a priority, Celina shares with us the positive impact these experiences had on her mental health. In this episode, we talk about the things we can do now to be more proactive in our mental wellness and how we can experience peace by incorporating certain habits into our lives. We discuss how we can become the biggest allies to our own recovery, how we can uncover tools of healing within us, and how we can change even when our environment stays the same. This is an incredible episode that will help you rethink the process of healing and equip you to begin the journey today.

Today I wanted to speak about self gratitude and why we should say “thank you” to ourselves. Now when you first hear that, you may be thinking that it sounds self-centered or egotistical to thank yourself. However on today’s episode of Attitude of Gratitude I want to highlight a few critical reasons why you should implement this powerful practice. Over the weekend I was tempted to not show up on a promise that I made to myself. Sometimes it is easier to break commitments to yourself when we would never do that to someone we care about. When I became aware of what I was doing, I decided to keep the promise I had made and after doing so, I actually took the time to acknowledge what I had done and thanked myself for showing up. Today I share with you why this practice will change your life and how it lays a foundation for you to become a happier and more well rounded individual. You cannot love others and show up for others until you show that same love towards yourself. Practicing self-love lays a foundation for all the other relationships in your life We hope that this episode encourages you to thank yourself and acknowledge the ways you have showed up for yourself. We would love to hear from you! What do you think about this practice? Do you thank yourself?

Is being sensitive a bad thing? From an early age we are told to “suck it up” and to “stop crying” and are not given permission to lean into the natural emotions that we feel. As a result, when we are adults we often see being “sensitive” as a negative thing without seeing it as the GIFT it really is. This week I had the honor of connecting with therapist and coach for Highly Sensitive People, Patricia Young. Patricia shares with us why being a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) is something we should see as a “super power” and why we should unapologetically OWN who we are . Patricia shares with us her personal story, and how she came to the conclusion that she was called to work specifically with Highly Sensitive People. She educates about the trait of High Sensitivity as well as the strengths of Highly Sensitive People; how to navigate relationships as a Highly Sensitive Person, and how to recognize and validate our needs as HSPs.  We hope this episode encourages you no matter who you are, or what type of personality you have to be proud of it. We should never apologize or be ashamed of our feelings, and if you are someone that feels more deeply than those around you, that is actually a beautiful thing. As Patricia says, “We need you!”. After listening to this episode, connect with us in our private Facebook community, Hope to Recharge and let us know what you think, because as always together is better!.   Connect with Patricia:  Website: https://unapologeticallysensitive.com/ Unapologetically Sensitive Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/unapologetically-sensitive/id1440433481 --   Today's episode of Hope to Recharge is sponsored by https://Betterhelp.com/hopetorecharge.  Betterhelp.com is the world’s leading provider of online therapy.

Have you ever had a strong expectation that something was going to turn out a certain way only to be disappointed that it went in a completely different direction? Maybe your hopes were up that something would happen and when it didn’t, you were left extremely frustrated.  In today’s episode I share a new perspective on dealing with change and how we can find gratitude in moments when things turn out differently than what we expect. This past week, I was in Israel at a Think Tank working on a new product that I am developing. I went into the meetings with a certain expectation of their outcomes and was confident that my ideas would manifest in a certain way. When they did not, I was incredibly grateful because I truly believe things were happening FOR me and were leading me down a better path. I share with you this story because it is important for us to take a big picture approach in looking at our lives and even the disappointments that we face. Although that may sound like a daunting task, we can slowly develop this mindset through a daily gratitude practice. Gratitude changes us from the inside out! I hope today’s episode encourages you to shift to gratitude not only when things are going as you anticipated but also when things are difficult and you might be tempted to feel frustrated and down. The more you choose gratitude the more it becomes a part of you. Amazing things will happen for you...when you live a life of gratitude. We would LOVE to support you and be a part of your journey.

Can you teach yourself to heal? How much power do we really have over our brains and can we truly experience long lasting change? This week I had the incredible honor of connecting with psychologist and New York Times best-selling author, Dr. Rick Hanson. After reading his books, listening to his amazing podcast, and watching his talks I reached out to Dr. Hanson to see if he would be willing to come on the show and share with us about his research around the power of our minds and how we can be more active in our own change. In this interview, we talk about the “brain-change” process and how powerful the role of learning is in our lives. Dr. Hanson says that we are “all scientists” and gives us a step-by-step process of things we can do TODAY to experience better mental health. He encourages us that each day is a gift and we can continually learn and grow and become better versions of ourselves through two simple steps. He says that learning is a power but knowing HOW to learn is a “super power”. We also dig into being compassionate to yourself and he gives fantastic advice to those who are deeply struggling with mental illness and what they can do with this brain-change process while experiencing symptoms. This is such a powerful conversation that is jam-packed full of helpful advice and empowering research around our mental health. We would love to hear from you! What do you think about Dr. Hanson’s research? What can you implement? Head over to our private Facebook community, Hope to Recharge.

For the past several months we have been producing Attitude of Gratitude on Thursdays to encourage you to invite gratitude into your life as a daily practice. Unfortunately, I have seen that there are still so many people who are hesitant to practice gratitude because they simply do not believe that it will work. In today’s episode, I share with you exactly how one moment of gratitude WILL slowly change your life. This past week my small child was sick, and although I had to cancel a FULL day of appointments and meetings, that I was actually looking forward to, I STILL felt immense gratitude and abundance. How? I truly believe that this was a result of the continual practice of gratitude in my life.  Look for gratitude. When you do you will start experiencing it. When you experience it you will start sharing it and slowly it will not only affect your life and bring massive abundance in your day, but it will also heavily influence those around you. Gratitude is like a magnet for positivity! Become hyper aware of moments of gratitude in your day. Let that lead you to joy. Open your eyes, even to the small things you might sometimes overlook. Your life will slowly start changing and this will give you a powerful tool in your mental health tool belt that you can use when you are really struggling.  We would love to connect with you in our private Facebook group, Hope to Recharge.

He is the author of Fish Our of Water, a mastermind facilitator, podcast host, and successful entrepreneur, but Calvin Wayman openly admits that it has not always been easy and even he struggles with mental health issues.  I reached out to Calvin after being so moved by some of his raw and vulnerable posts on social media about his mental health journey. He authentically shares with his audience both on social platforms and on his podcast, Curious with Calvin Wayman, about his mental health journey and even about the suicidal thoughts that he has struggled with. Calvin openly shares with us about growing up in fundamental Mormonism and how leaving his religion as a grown man has impacted him on a very deep level. We dig into both religion’s impact on mental health and also its impact on personal relationships. Calvin shares with us about how his upbringing felt like an “invisible leash” and how he found the courage to tune into his own intuition and make decisions that were more authentic to him. We also dig into the mental health struggles of an entrepreneur and why it is so important to share your journey with others and not be bound by the stigma around mental illness. Calvin even asks me some powerful questions about my own healing journey and what it looks like to not only forgive others but to forgive yourself. This is a fantastic episode for those who may feel like they may have suppressed wounds from their past that are keeping them back from healing. Calvin shares very practical tips that anyone can learn from despite where they are at.

As 2019 is coming to a close I wanted to share with you more about my mental health journey. The intention of this episode is to provide you with actionable steps and resources that will help you level up your mental wellness as we embark on a new year. This is part two of our three part series were I am coming to you solo, sharing my personal story of battling with depression and anxiety. We talk about how I was able to overcome this struggle that was threatening every aspect of my life.  You will hear how “I found hope” in my psychiatrist's office and how important it is to find the right therapist for you. I also share what I wish I would have done differently from the beginning when choosing a therapist and why I believe now more than ever that physical health is so important to our mental and emotional health. I walk you through step by step my journey and how it evolved from simply seeking therapy to adding in tools like yoga, meditation, and community. I hope this episode encourages you to “find the right cocktail” that works for you and what you are going through. We are all so unique and so as I share my personal experience I encourage you to fight for your own story. We are here if you need anything.

I am so excited to introduce you to someone who has been instrumental in my own gratitude practice. Gorgian Benta host of The Gratitude Podcast joins us today to talk about why he is so passionate about gratitude and how it pulled him out of a time where he had "hit rock bottom".  Gorgian has dedicated the past three years to extensively studying gratitude. He produces a new show for his podcast multiple times a week but says that there is "always something to learn" when it comes to gratitude. He shares that through gratitude although nothing may change on the outside, "everything changes on the inside".  In this episode we talk about how gratitude gives us a powerful feeling of abundance and helps us see the world in a different way. We also dig into the importance of not just "saying" thank you but how true gratitude is FEELING grateful. He generously share with us gratitude practices and even ways that we can strategically remind ourselves of moments from the past that we can reflect on and be grateful for. We even reflect on the small things in life that we take for granted and how we miss opportunities to be grateful, potentially robbing ourselves from the beautiful benefits of gratitude. Georgians points out that many of the conveniences we have and enjoy day to day came from the labor and extreme effort of others. Noticing these small things throughout our lives, will open the door to massive abundance and bless our lives intensely. If you are interested in how you can take your gratitude to the next level or how we can see lightness even in our darkest times, you will LOVE this conversation with Gorgian.

Often we do what we feel like we "should do" instead of leaning into what feels truly right for us. Perhaps we do not fully trust ourselves or we have simply been conditioned to respond to what is going on around us instead of tuning in to what our intuition is trying to say. This week I had the incredible honor of connecting with Regena Rosa about what she has learned through her journey battling depression and why she says that she is actually grateful for her experience with it. Regena vividly explains what depression felt like on her body describing it like "heavy bricks on top of" her body. She shares with us the moment that she realized that her "mind was not functioning properly" and why she believes that she needed to experience that depth of pain in order to fully change. We talk about giving yourself permission to see your mental challenges as a true sickness, what we can learn from the "little voices" inside of our minds, and why depression truly is a wound that you simply cannot see. This is such a vulnerable and raw episode what I know will help so many of you to not feel alone in your struggles. We want to provide another layer of support to you. Connect with us in our private Facebook group, Hope to Recharge. We would love for you to be a part of our community. Because as always, together is better.

Do you struggle with the “Holiday Blues”? A lot of people struggle during the holidays and it can be especially difficult because most people are celebrating and you feel like you “should” be happy and not feeling the way that you do. In today’s episode, we talk about coping with the holiday blues and even finding gratitude in the midst of it. Although I personally have never struggled with the holiday blues I have struggled with deep depression during our family’s celebrations and special holidays. There is a lot of guilt and frustration that can come from these emotions especially during these times but I invite you to join me in an exercise that will help tremendously. Today we are talking  about inviting gratitude into your Holiday Blues. While you are acknowledging pain, and not pushing it away, you can also invite light to come in. Again, we are not ignoring the pain, we are just allowing the space for gratitude to enter and acknowledge things that are working for us. Although simple, these gratitude practices are SO powerful and can literally transform how you feel. As 2019 is coming to a close, it is time for us to pause and reflect on everything to be grateful for this year. Take a moment to tune it for a moment and be present and reflect on the year. What are you grateful for today?  We want you to know that you are not alone during this holiday season. We truly care about you and invite you to join us in our private Facebook community, Hope to Recharge.

What if the thing that you think is a weakness is actually a strength? What if many of the “disorders” that we place on people are actually just their own uniqueness and something they can use to their advantage? This week I had the honor of connecting with Cameron Herold, also known as the “CEO whisperer”, to talk about his journey in mental health and why he thinks you should embrace what sets you apart. Cameron has had extreme success even at an early age. He is known for his high energy, best selling books, and his gift for being able to help companies double and even triple their revenue in a short period of time. However, Cameron had an unconventional upbringing. He was diagnosed at an early age with “mental disorders” and although at the time, it was seen as a weakness, he now believes that being different is what helped him become as successful as he is. In today’s powerful interview, Cameron shares with us why he believes many of our differences that we see as “mental illnesses” are simply our own uniquenesses. He even believes they can be our gifts. He suggests that we stop telling kids they have “problems” and start seeing how the thing that sets them apart can actually be used productively. He also shares with us about how our children’s confidence is suffering when we are constantly focused on finding what is “wrong” with them. He encourages us in this episode to not only educate ourselves on those who have made the history books and have “struggled” with “mental illness” but for us to celebrate what makes us unique and consider that there may be nothing innately wrong with us. This was such an eye opening conversation and we would LOVE to hear what you think! Connect with us in our private Facebook group: Hope to Recharge.

We talk a lot on the show about practicing gratitude through the difficult times. However when gratitude WORKS (which it does!) What do we do then? Today on Attitude of Gratitude we talk about the importance of continuing our gratitude practice even when things are going well. In order to take gratitude to the next level,and truly experience all that it has to offer we need to make it apart of our lives. Sometimes it is easier to reminder to practice gratitude because it becomes a part of our tool kit while we are struggling, but we are truly missing out if we do not use it fully and make it a regular practice. Gratitude looks different for everyone. I am learning so much from our listeners about their own practices and the way that they implement gratitude. In this episode, I share with you my own tips and tricks on how I use it daily, and what I am even doing next to challenge myself! Gratitude can truly create miracles in our lives!  I am still learning so much about gratitude and grateful that I get to learn by serving YOU. We are incredibly grateful for you tuning in each week and being apart of our tribe.

This week I am bringing you one of three solo episodes where I will dive in deeper to my own mental health story and share with you the tools that I used (and still currently am using) in my recovery.  Hosting this show is an incredible honor and I am overwhelmed with gratitude by the response that we have already had in just six short months. I hope that by sharing more concrete tools like what I am sharing in today’s episode will encourage you in your own journey and support you on your path to healing. There are three main categories that I want to address. Today, I will be sharing the first of these, which is mindset. Developing the right mindset is crucial not only in life but especially if you are battling a mental illness. I break down how I used gratitude, not being a victim , and developing a strong desire, to all aid in my healing. I used to really struggle with carrying a negative energy and expecting only bad things to happen. I learned through several books that my thoughts were actually energy and attracted negative things to happen. This was so empowering because I realized that if I could attract the negative, I could also attract the positive.  Healing doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It just means that you are working to move the needle. We want to support you in your journey.

After experiencing a major transition in her personal life, our guest this week success coach and author Heather Vickery says that she discovered the power of gratitude. She learned that when she shifted her energy and made space for her emotions, things began to change in her life. This week we hear her story and learn more about this powerful tool that we all have access to. Heather says that she does not believe we can be ‘successful” when our personal life isn’t functioning well. However, when there are things that are not in your control, how can you still live in a positive state and experience the level of happiness that you desire? She believes this is possible only through gratitude. In this episode of Attitude of Gratitude, you will learn why “you have everything right now to be successful”, how fear can empower you and not “own you”, and how we can actually leverage fear into “intentional bravery”. Heather also shares with us about her new book that teaches children the power of gratitude and empowers them to take control over their well being. There is always so much more to learn about gratitude and we are excited to continue to grow together with you!

There are many ways to find relief from depression. There are creative ways to cope with anxiety. As humans there is not a “one size fits all” approach to anything and especially in our mental wellness. This week we are talking all things mental health, creativity, and the power of surrender. In this conversation, I connected with the INCREDIBLE Xandra Robinson-Burns who is an Essayist, Founder of Heroine Training™️ and the creator of Everyday Wonderland™️.  She shares with us about her journey as a young girl discovering the world of fiction and how she used it in later years to cope with her depression.  Xandra has a powerful story about how as a young child she was a “deep thinker” and “always aware” of her experience. She started experiencing signs of depression as a young woman and had a painful experience of being dismissed by a counselor that she confided in. She now uses her experience to help others break free from shame and learn their own creative ways of dealing with mental illness.  In today’s episode, we talk about the power of stillness, why we should not suppress out dreams, and how it is OKAY to feel whatever it is that you are feeling. Xandra encourages us to sit with our depression and to not feel guilt around what we are feeling. She also shares the importance of celebrating small wins and finding the “magic” for where you already are.  Need extra support?

Today marks six full months of podcasting! How appropriate that this special day falls not only on our Attitude of Gratitude segment but also on Thanksgiving Day. Today I am joined with our show’s producer, Heather Parady to talk about gratitude in podcasting, business, and in life. In this episode we talk more in depth about the power of gratitude and how important it is to not only name things to be grateful for but also why we should practice FEELING grateful. We discuss how our own gratitude has progressed and how it influences our work and relationships. We want to take this moment to thank YOU the listener for going on this journey with us to break the stigma around mental illness. We are grateful that you tune in every week and care deeply enough about your own mental wellness and the wellness of your loved ones to invest your time and energy to learning more about mental health. We are dedicated to you and are excited to grow and learn together and once and for all break down the walls and shame around these topics. We believe together truly is better and invite you to join our private Facebook community Hope to Recharge.

*Warning* This episode contains very sensitive topics including conversations about suicide. If you or someone you know is struggling with suicidal thoughts please reach out to the hotlines listed below. ***   Suicide is a very heavy topic. It is one that we often avoid because it is dark and can leave many of us in fear and confusion on how to respond when a loved one is struggling or if we have had our own thoughts of death. I had the honor of connecting with Christopher Howard, host of the Coffee Over Suicide podcast who graciously shared with us his own story of suicidal idealization starting as early as five years old. He grew up feeling very isolated and said that even as a young child he had this sense that “life was painful” and that he “was wrong.” Now as a grown man, he has different tools for coping and new ways to look at his mental health struggles. He shares with us the importance of taking ownership of our mental health illnesses and how we can take the responsibility of recovery away from pill and treatment and put it back into our own hands. If you or someone you know is struggling with suicidal thoughts please know that you are not alone. Below are resources and hotlines that are available to you. Although the pain is real , there is hope. We would also love to be a support.

This week I am back in Jerusalem coming to you full of gratitude! I just attended a conference led by my eldest sister and the CEO of Temech, a powerful organization which supports female entrepreneurs. This week I was once again reminded of all that I have to be grateful for.  While I was sitting in the conference listening to all of these accomplished women, I noticed a trend. Every one of them emphasized gratitude and focused on the positive. I even met a woman in her 70's who was severely burnt in her 30's and now leads a nonprofit for burn victims. She credited gratitude to her recovery and how she was able to cope from the pain. The whole day was so inspiring and I am incredibly proud of my sister. I wanted to share with you these insights because no matter what you may going through we can turn so many things around through the practice of gratitude. I am becoming more and more convinced that gratitude is key and that it is vital that we surround ourselves with positive people. What do you do when you feel overwhelming pain or struggle to find hope? We hope that these messages of gratitude inspire you and help you through your mental health journey. If you need any support please know that we are here. You can connect with us in our private Facebook group Hope to Recharge.

No one can fully prepare you to be a mother. You not only have to navigate the logistics of taking care of another human but you may also experience an array of emotions and internal battles that new mothers face. Postpartum depression is often experienced but not spoken about ...until now. This week I had the honor of connecting with Samantha Sutherland  host of the Women at Work Podcast and a successful diversity and inclusion specialist who shares her intimate story of suffering from mental health issues while bringing her sweet boy into the world. In this powerful conversation we talk about compound trauma and how that can affect mental illness. We also discuss things like sleep deprivation and the difficulty of struggling with feelings of no support. Samantha generously shares with us what she wishes she would have known all along and how important it is for us to seek the help that we need. We also dive into the strain mental health issues have on marriages and intimate relationships. Samantha offers sound advice on how to not only support someone who is struggling but the importance of the caregiver to guard their own mental health in the process.  We hope this episode encourages you to get the help that you need if you are suffering with depression or other mental health challenges. There are many resources available and support.

How can we find happiness when we are told “no”? Maybe a client has turned down our service or perhaps we have been asking God for something specific and haven't received it. How can we be grateful during times like this and find joy even in the midst of disappointment? This week I had the JOY of connecting with the happiness coach herself, Lauren Foster, as she explains to us why we should not “wait for happiness” but find it in our everyday lives.  Lauren started off in marketing and sales where she was  “accidentally introduced” to positive psychology. She benefited so much through the mindset shifts that it taught her that she shifted careers and now helps others use the tools of positive psychology to manifest the life of their dreams. In today’s episode, we talk about how we can practice gratitude, how to find the ‘sweetness” of life through sadness, and how to shift our mindset when doors seem like they are closing all around us. Lauren also walks us through a powerful exercise involving a story about  a “magic orchid” which helps shift your perception of gratitude and the abundance of joy that is actually around us. This will be the perfect start to your day and will provide much hope and energy no matter what you are facing. We would also LOVE to hear from you!

If you or someone you know runs their own business you know how stressful and demanding it can be. Many entrepreneurs work excessive hours, do not get enough sleep, and suffer from high levels of stress. Since they are so invested in their business, it may be difficult for them to recognize the mental health issues that they may be facing. This week, I had the honor of connecting with mental health advocate and business consultant Angela Henderson. Angela spent many years of her life as a mental health clinician which gave her professional experience in the mental health world but as she shares with us today, she has a very personal experience with it as well. She is now passionate about helping entrepreneurs identify their own mental health issues and equip them with the tools to not only overcome their struggles but also to thrive and flourish not only externally but emotionally and mentally in their business. In this powerful interview we talk about how to overcome the isolation and extreme stress that many small business owners face. We also dig into the importance of play and creativity in business.

Do you take vitamins? It may even be a part of your daily routine and few of us would argue on their benefits. What does this have to do with gratitude? In today’s episode I share with you why practicing daily gratitude is like a vitamin that can not only improve your day but also set you up for a longer and happier life.  We talk a lot on this show about the benefits of practicing gratitude daily. Research shows that those who do, are happier, healthier, have better relationships, and even get more done in a day. So why not make it a part of our routine? It’s good for us, it costs nothing, and we already have access to it! I am passionate about sharing this with you because since I have been practicing gratitude, my mindset has completely shifted. I used to see mostly negative, but now I can shift negative moments into positive ones. I've trained my brain to be more positive through gratitude and it has completely changed my life. I hope this encourages you today to take your gratitude vitamin and begin the journey of shifting your mindset and leading a more fulfilling and happier life.    We would love to support you!

Today’s episode is unlike any we have done up to this point. You will experience a live energy healing session between me and my energy coach, Brian Weiss. You may remember Brian from episode 30 where we explored what energy healing is (and what it is not). I encourage you to check out that interview before listening to this one to give context on the session you are about to hear. I gave Brian permission to tap into my energy and share with us what he was sensing from me and his recommendations on how I could overcome the blocked emotions that he was feeling. I wanted to share this openly with you so you could gain better insight into what a practice like this looks like and to demystify “energy healing”. In this episode, you will hear more about the blocked emotions of anger, anxiety, and fear of failure that Brian sensed on me. He shares how he was able to tap into those emotions and why our subconscious is trying to free itself from them. We also talk about why trying to “overcome” emotions is a “big mistake” and how we can tell if our emotions are controlling us or if we are controlling them. This process can be draining, but it is so important to dig deep to our emotions and create a space for them to move through.

Thursdays are special days. I use it to prepare for Shabbat which I love celebrating and getting to spend time with my family. I also get to connect with you and share with you things that I am learning and contemplating about gratitude. I was recently talking to someone who was going through a really difficult time with their partner who is struggling with mental health. One of the things that I wish I would have understood when I was going through my own mental health journey was the importance of being grateful for the loved ones in my life who were supporting me. Living with someone who is going through mental health challenges can be really difficult at times. When you see someone who you care about suffering it can feel helpless. Although our friends and family may not understand what we are going through exactly we can gift them with the “fuel” of gratitude. Sometimes you don't have the strength to give gratitude and that’s okay. In this episode, we cover not only the importance of showing gratitude towards our support system but also how we can practically.  We would LOVE to hear from you! Who are you grateful for? What are ways that you like to show appreciation?

Today I am coming back to you from Jerusalem. We are ending our fabulous trip and heading back to the States in the morning, but I wanted to wrap up this journey with another lesson about gratitude that I have learned over the past couple of weeks. A few months ago, our family vacation to Florida was cut short due to a hurricane. It was tempting to be frustrated about ending our trip early but we decided to choose gratitude. Another unexpected twist was that we had to drive back to New York instead of fly. We had a car full of children including my two-year old. However, since we were seeing things through the lens of gratitude we noticed something… We had a wonderful trip and our children did very well on the long journey. Noticing this gave us the idea to come to Israel as a family and trust that the long travel would not be a strain. We were right! This was one of the best trips back home we have ever had...and it may not have happened without us deliberately shifting our frustration back several months ago in Florida to gratitude. I share this story with you today to remind you that we have the power to CHOOSE gratitude. It’s natural to be frustrated but remember that gratitude can not only shift our mindset it also has the power to influence our circumstances. Gratitude is dynamic. We WANT to hear from you! How can we support you? What has gratitude done in your life? Find us in our private Facebook group Hope to Recharge.

Eli Brown was on his way to a promising career as a professional tennis player. Growing up in Canada, he fell in love with the sport and dedicated himself to strenuous practice and dedication to the game. However, at the age of fourteen, he began to experience sexual abuse which would result in a turn of events that changed his life. This week, I had the honor of sitting down with Eli who is the founder of  Shine the Light On, a clothing brand dedicated to spreading awareness and providing resources to those who struggle with mental illness. Eli is now using his story of overcoming childhood trauma and heavy addiction in his early adulthood years to “shine a light” on the suffering of others and provide hope to those who feel lost. Eli graciously shares his story about the difficulty he faced in not only sharing his story but also being able to identify the mental health struggles that he faced. As he said, he knew he wasn’t truly “living” and felt as though he was going through his days “blindly.” He shares with us how he was able to seek help and what he would share with someone who was considering giving up. This is a powerful interview if you or someone you know has struggled specifically with abuse and or addiction.

Today I am coming to you from Jerusalem, Israel. I am spending the holidays with my family which I am so grateful for. We are participating in a few fasts and I wanted to share with you the gratitude that I have found THROUGH the process of fasting.  I am not naturally someone who loves to fast. However, when I was walking through my darkest points in my mental health journey I literally could NOT eat. I realized through this fast how grateful I am that I have the choice now to participate in a fast as opposed to my body rejecting food. Another thing that I wanted to share with you is how I have been practicing finding gratitude in my frustration. During my travels, it is easy to become agitated over things that are different than what I am used to. However, I want to be grateful even for things that are different or hard. When we choose gratitude over frustration, our bodies literally change. We also discover that gratitude is a GIFT. It is like a switch that can change everything. It takes a while to practice before it becomes a part of our lifestyle, but once we get a grasp on it...it can be the biggest blessing. We would love to hear your thoughts on this topic!

In 2008, Tony Grebmeier says that he almost lost everything. He had been struggling for years with addiction, was in severe debt, separated from his wife, and was considering taking his own life. One day a friend knocked on his door and spoke the words that he desperately needed to hear. Now years later, Tony has dedicated his life to helping others overcome their own internal struggles and step into who they feel called to be. In this episode, Tony shares with us his story of being abused as a child and the implications that had on his relationships and identity. Today we dive into the power of forgiveness and how we can overcome the dialogue in our mind that keeps many of us in bondage. Tony shares with us why we need to make our healing journey a priority and how everything changed for him when he shifted from leading with his wallet to leading with his heart. If you or someone you know struggles with demons from the past, or wonders what forgiveness looks like practically, you do not want to miss this episode! As Tony beautifully says, “no storm lasts forever” and “the most important thing you can do is get someone to help you through your journey”.

I first heard today’s guest on one of my favorite podcasts, The One Thing. They were interviewing a man named John Israel (AKA “Mr. Thank You”) and I loved the conversation so much I listened THREE times. John later became my own business and life coach and today he joins us to talk about the power of gratitude. John shares with us about how he used to be a “gratitude salesman” however he was struggling internally to practice and find gratitude in his own life. At that point, he made a personal challenge to himself to write FIVE sincere notes of gratitude to others for one solid year. What he learned and how he grew in that process completely changed his life. Today we dig into why he chose to focus on gratitude specifically (and not happiness or joy), the importance of processing through and neutralizing your thoughts, how to be grateful in difficult times, how community “shows up” for you when you begin to practice gratitude, and how this practice changed not only himself but his family, Are you up for the challenge? John challenges us today to find a person who has been a “light in the tunnel’ and has given us hope...and write them a thank-you letter. We would love to hear how you will apply what John shares in your own life!

After years of struggling with depression and manic episodes, Tammy Ozolins finally received the diagnosis of Bipolar Two with Rapid Cycling. As an educator, she has made the brave decision to talk publicly about her mental health journey in order to end the stigma and educate young people on the realities of mental health. It was an honor to connect with Tammy (also known as “Ms. Oz”) and learn not only about her own battle with mental health, but also hear her perspective as a teacher on how we can better inform young people about their own mental health and equip them with the necessary tools to overcome their own struggles. In today’s episode, Tammy shares with us about why she does not shy away from the topic of mental health, and how her own story of hospitalization and even a suicide attempt has made her even more passionate about helping others who may feel alone in their struggles. She shares with us why having a diagnosis was a “relief”, how she has coped with depression and navigated manic episodes in the workplace, and why she believes that educating others and communicating with them is so important. This is a powerful episode for not only those who struggle with mental health but also for those who are supporting a loved one.

This week is a special week in the Jewish community. We are celebrating our New Year and for me that means a time of intentional reflection. I like to take a moment this time of year to reflect on all the things I have to be grateful for. We continually discuss on the show why it is important to practice gratitude daily, however there is something extra special on reflecting back on a FULL year of moments. In today's episode, I share with you a few of my rituals around this practice including ways that you can use journals and pictures to help foster gratitude and remind you of moments you may have otherwise forgotten. Why is any of this important? I don't know about you, but life is SO busy and it is easy to move through it so fast without taking a moment to reflect. The beautiful thing about gratitude is that it allows positive energy into your life which attracts MORE and more things to be grateful for.  Will you join us in being a vessel for gratitude? In being a catalyst for positivity? Even through the difficult moments you experienced this year reflection gives you an opportunity to see how much you have grown and how strong you were in the process. What is something you are proud of in regards to yourself and your personal growth this year? We would love to hear about the things YOU are grateful for.

I recently read a book, Relationship Magic, which was monumental in how I now view my personal relationships. It was an honor to be able to connect with the author of that book, Guy Finley on today’s episode of Hope to Recharge. Guy is the founder and director of Life of Learning, a non-profit organization for spiritual leaders as well as an author of over forty-five books which have sold over 2-million copies worldwide. In our conversation, we talk about his work around relationships and what we can learn about ourselves through others. We discuss why Guy believes we are not “broken” but often “disconnected” from our true self, how growing up among famous families gave him a unique perspective about what happiness truly is, and why we should seek a relationship with LOVE and not look to the world for validation. If you are curious about how we can cope with depression by having a better understanding of consciousness, how we can better observe our feelings and thoughts, and what role ego plays in our relationships,  you do not want to miss this episode!

Today I wanted to discuss the term “Attitude of Gratitude”. What does that really mean? I am sure that you have heard it being said and it’s tempting to think that it is just a cute little saying. I believe that an attitude of gratitude is something that we have to develop. Most of us are not born with it. I have personally learned a lot about gratitude by watching my husband and how he has enhanced and invited little moments of gratitude into his life. He has always decided to make small moments, incredible. As a result, he literally creates special experiences. The term “attitude” usually has a negative connotation, however, we can choose the attitude that we have. By cultivating an attitude of gratitude, we will see moments through a positive perspective, inviting in every moment, for what it really is. As a result, no matter what is happening, we can see something good. We would love to hear about your thoughts about what an attitude of gratitude means to you.

Can a hug make a difference in our mental health? What are “self-hugs”? What is it about physical touch that is so healing? Dr. Stone Kraushaar, also known as the “Hug Doctor” says that hugs can be a game-changer for our mental wellbeing and shares with us why we underestimate the power of a hug. Dr. Kraushaar is a clinical psychologist who was originally practicing therapy at college campuses. A few years ago he felt a strong shift and began his own personal development journey. After experiencing the transformation of giving hugs to strangers he set out on a mission to study and teach the connection between us all through the power of hugging. In this enlightening conversation, Dr. Hug shares with us why he recommends 21-second hugs, why we should be “radically transparent”, and why he believes that “all people share a profound human connection”. Even if you do not believe yourself to be “a hugger” this episode will help you to rethink what human connection looks like and give you ideas on the variety of ways that you can both give and receive hugs.

What is ‘Post Pain Gratitude’? Are there benefits to gratitude beyond coping with the present moment and experiencing its’ immediate benefits? Last week I discovered something powerful about gratitude that I did not know before and I am excited to share it with you in this week’s segment of Attitude of Gratitude. If you remember in last week’s episode (https://hopetorecharge.com/episode/practicing-gratitude-during-pain-attitude-of-gratitude/) we talked about a difficult time my family and I were walking through as my youngest was transitioning into school. We talked about the benefits of practicing gratitude during painful moments and how it can bring a new perspective to even the most difficult of times.  However, something happened afterward that I did not expect. After walking through the experience and when we could finally see light at the end of the tunnel, I notice that my gratitude was not only still there, but it had drastically INCREASED. It was like there was a new voltage to my present moment and I was hyper-aware of the goodness around me.  My positive energy came back, giving me the ability to truly see and gain clarity. It was through this that I realized the importance of working through pain WITH gratitude. It not only helps you through the darkness but it shines a light on your days to come making you hypersensitive to the GOOD.  We would LOVE to hear from you. Have you experienced post-pain gratitude? Find us on Facebook in our private Facebook Community, Hope to Recharge, because as always, together is better.    --   Topics Discussed: What are the post pain benefits of gratitude?

This week I had the honor of connecting with mobility expert Dr. Jen Esquer about how we can use mobility and fitness to prevent and treat mental health issues. Dr. Jen shares with us about a recent trauma that she endured and how she walked through the pain, allowed space for healing, and ultimately found her truest self through the process. In this episode, Dr. Jen walks us through her journey of being a young gymnast, to finding a love for mobility, and ultimately sharing her passion very publicly and building a following online. After enduring a betrayal in a relationship, Dr. Jen discovered a new part of the mind/body connection that she had not experienced before, realized the power of her own intuition, and the importance of trusting herself. Today we talk about how to find your worth and value outside of external circumstances, why it is critical to find community that will hold space for you and not push you through the process of healing and the connection between physical fitness and mental health. Jen even shares with us a few breathing techniques that will help you through panic attacks and anxiety. This is a powerful interview that I know you will learn so much from.

Today my energy is a little low but I wanted to share with you something that I am currently going through. As you know I love the topic of gratitude but I am still learning how to implement it into my life especially during painful times. On this week’s attitude with gratitude, I wanted to share with you about a difficult time we have been having with my sweet little boy and his first few days of preschool. My dear friend Matthew reminded me to be grateful even during this difficult time. How do we find gratitude when we are in pain? How can we use the tools of gratitude to overcome the trials we are facing? This week I was reminded that gratitude gives me the energy to focus and reminds me that nothing lasts forever. I hope this episode and my story encourages you to find the light and the good even in the darkest of times. If you need any additional support we would LOVE to connect with you in our private Facebook Group Hope to Recharge.

This week, I sat down with another individual who has played a huge role in my life and in my journey towards overcoming the mental health struggles that I have dealt with. I have the extreme honor of introducing you to my intuitive coach and mentor Brian W  I met Brian five or six years ago when I was experiencing deep depression. Since then, he has guided me towards healing by helping me to uncover my own intuition and unlock my own ability to what he calls “healing myself.” Brian’s holistic approach includes focusing on our biofeedback and connecting our symptoms to underlying emotions. In our conversation we talk about why he doesn’t believe we need “healers” and that we have the power within ourselves to guide our own healing journey. We also talk about how negative energy blocks us and how we can begin to release negative emotions that are the underlying cause of mental illness. If you feel stuck and wonder what role our emotions play in our healing, you will love this conversation with Brian. We also include a short clip of an upcoming episode where Brian works with me through an exercise.  If you need any additional support or community please connect with us on our Facebook group Hope to Recharge.

My friend Matthew recently suggested this incredible book to me by Pam Grout called Thank and Grow Rich. You may be familiar with the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill who talks about the power of our thoughts in fulfilling our dreams. This book presents the idea that GRATITUDE plays just as an important role in us seeing miracles and having success. Pam says that gratitude and joy are both connected and when we experience one, we experience the other. In today’s Attitude of Gratitude, I share with you about her program called AA 2.0 which are two practices that she recommends using every day that will transform our lives and help us reap the full benefits of gratitude. I invite you in this episode to start these powerful practices including finding a group that you can share your gratitude with. It will give you strength and help pick you up even during difficult times.

Today we are welcoming mental health advocate and fellow podcast host, Rachael Steinman to the show. Rachel hosts the "Dear Family" podcast which she says is like a "love letter" to families who have a loved one who is suffering from mental illness. Although Rachel says that she herself has never struggled with mental health, members in her family going back five generations have, which has resulted in four suicides. Rachael shares openly with us about her family's history, including her mom's battle with Bipolar.  A few years ago Rachel ran across a manuscript that her grandfather had written before he died by suicide. She began her own writing process uncovering her discoveries about her families mental illnesses and battles with addiction. She said that the writing process actually began to heal her relationship with her own mother and she gained empathy for those struggling and discovered a new passion for breaking the stigma of mental illness.  We not only dive into Rachel's powerful story but we also discuss how mental illness can be passed down through generations, the importance of stepping in and providing hope for others, and forgiveness' role in the process.  I learned so much from Rachel and I know you will be moved by her story. If you or someone you know needs support during the mental health journey, please connect with us in our private community Hope to Recharge- because as always- together is better!   --   Topics Discussed: Generational mental health.

Imagine teaching for 37 years, traveling all over the world, and having taught over 2.5 million people, and then one day...being told that you would never speak or write again.   That’s exactly what happened to this week's guest Paul Cummings, whom I had the extreme honor of sitting down with to discusses how he beat all odds and gained a new perspective on gratitude.   I first heard about Paul when our mutual friend, Andy Heck introduced me to his book, It All Matters, and I heard about his powerful story and optimistic outlook on life.  Today, Paul shares with us about when he had a stroke and was then diagnosed with advanced Aphasia, which is loss of ability to express speech (or understand it) caused by brain damage.    In our interview Paul shares with us why he believes that those who are diagnosed with Aphasia are some of the “bravest people you will ever meet”, why he wakes up every morning at 4 AM and practices his speech for four hours, how his mother has shaped his outlook on life, and why he is “not a prisoner” to anything.   I was so inspired by Paul and his story and know that you will love this incredibly raw and powerful conversation. We would love to hear your thoughts on this topic! You can connect with us in our private Facebook group- because as always- together is better!     Connect with Paul: Website: https://www.paulcummings.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/iampaulcummings LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/iampaulcummings/ Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEvY2EqHE94C48glIjocFgw Email: paul@paulcummings.com Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/iampaulcummings/     --   Resources mentioned:    Paul’s Book: It All Matters: https://www.amazon.com/All-Matters-Strategies-Confidence-Creativity-ebook/dp/B07666JP5V   --   Topics Discussed: Learning how to be grateful even through obstacles.

This week, I have the honor of introducing you to someone who has been instrumental in my recovery process and healing journey, my very own psychiatrist, Dr. Samuel Pauker.   Although he is a psychiatrist, and your mind may immediately jump to treatment by medication alone, Dr. Pauker’s work goes way beyond psychopharmacology and integrates full health by acknowledging the link between body, mind, and soul.   After asking someone for a recommendation for the very BEST psychiatrist, I was given Dr. Pauker’s name and just after our first intake session, I knew this was the right doctor for me. Dr. Pauker uses a unique blend of psychopharmacology along with psychoanalysis to customize treatment for each individual. His work allows patients to feel seen and heard and he digs into why that is so important with us today.   In this episode, we discuss how to balance medication and self-care practices, why using medication can stabilize us enough to engage in life-changing activities, how depression and anxiety are linked, and why sometimes anxiety is a defense against depression. This was a powerful interview and I know you will learn so much from Dr.  Pauker! We would love to hear your major takeaways from the episode. Please find us on Facebook and join our private community, because together is BETTER!   --   Resources mentioned:    Book: The First Year of Marriage: https://www.amazon.com/First-Year-Marriage-Expect-Accept/dp/0595411533   --   Topics Discussed: The connection between depression and the capacity of belief.

This week, I had the honor of sitting down with an Australian doctor who is shaking things up in her industry by talking publicly about the mental health and wellbeing of doctors.   Dana shares with us about her first year working as a doctor and how she was surprised by the extreme overwhelm and lack of support that she experienced. She was right out of medical school and when she sought help, it was suggested to her that she seek counseling privately (off record) in fear that she might lose her job.   The more she dug into the topic, the more she learned that there was an underlying problem in the medical community that had to be addressed. There were many junior and senior doctors who were secretly struggling and there was nowhere to turn.   In our powerful conversation, you will learn more about Dana’s advocacy through her podcast, Junior Doctor’s Corner, and hear her honest answers about the fine balance between a patient’s and a doctor's health.   If you or someone you know is looking for support through your mental health journey, please connect with us in our private Facebook group: Hope to Recharge, because together is always better.   --   Topics Discussed: How Dana found the courage to share her story despite the risk of professional repercussions. Dana’s suggestions of what needs to be implemented in medical training to prevent doctors from suffering from mental illness. An honest dialogue about the extreme conditions that Doctors are expected to endure.   --   Connect with Dana: Website: https://www.juniordoctorscorner.com/ Listen to Episode 7: Every Intern’s Nightmare https://www.juniordoctorscorner.com/internship-nightmare Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/junior-doctors-corner/id1434228029 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/juniordoctorscorner/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/JrDoctorsCorner Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/juniordoctorscorner/   --   Suicide Hotlines: USA: 1-800-273-8255 USA Crisis Text: 741-741Canada: 1-833-456-4566 United Kingdom: 116-123 Australia: 13-11-14 International Suicide Hotlines: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_suicide_crisis_lines   --   Connect with us!

While attending a podcasting conference this week, I connected with my friend Pamela Smith to talk about the power of gratitude. Pamela is a private practice therapist and soon to be podcast host of ‘It’s All Mental’.  In this episode, we talk openly about the anxiety we were both feeling this week with everything we are juggling and how gratitude has been key in shifting our energy and really being present. We also dig into our gratitude routines and why we believe the next “level” of gratitude is giving back. We discuss the different “levels” of gratitude and how we can take our gratitude practices to the next level through action. So how do you SHOW gratitude? Pamela and I give a few examples of how we take action on our gratitude which welcomes in more abundance in our lives. As Pamela puts it, “You change the mindset, you change the behaviors, and you change your life”. Next week we are doing something special in our community! We will be going live with one of our members to learn about their gratitude practices and tips. Connect with us in our private Facebook group to learn more.

This week I am introducing to you someone who is incredibly special to me and has played one of the most significant roles not only in my life but also in my healing process from mental illness. In this very special episode, I sat down with my husband Ari Jacobs to discuss what it was like for him to live with someone struggling with depression and anxiety   I wanted to bring Ari on the show to have an authentic dialogue with him about what it was like to walk through my mental health journey as a supporter. This was actually the very first time I have asked him these specific questions and I am so grateful to be able to share them with you because these are the hard conversations that we are reluctant to have but are necessary for the healing journey.   In this episode,  Ari shares with us how he was able to be so supportive and not give up on me and our relationship when I was walking through very dark times. We also discuss in the aftermath how we have both changed and what we have learned in the process. Ari also gives two key takeaways that he learned including the importance of preparation and why we should focus on increasing love in our relationships.   I hope this episode is helpful to you by giving a holistic view of the mental health journey. We should not walk through this alone because support is everything. If you are needing support whether you suffer from mental illness or someone you love does, please find us on facebook in our private Facebook group because as always, together is better. --   Topics Discussed: How to fill yourself up when you feel depleted and unsupported. Ari’s coping techniques during my mental health journey. Tools Ari used which helped him keep a bigger perspective of the situation. --   Connect with Ari:   Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ari100200 --   Suicide Hotlines: USA: 1-800-273-8255 USA Crisis Text: 741-741Canada: 1-833-456-4566 United Kingdom: 116-123 Australia: 13-11-14 International Suicide Hotlines: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_suicide_crisis_lines   --   Connect with us!

When I first started this podcast, I had no idea how much pain there actually was in this world due to mental illness. Hearing your stories and understanding how many struggle with mental health has solidified this cause even more for me.    If you are new here, Thursdays are special days where we take a moment and give space for gratitude. Why? Gratitude is a powerful tool that will literally attract abundance and more opportunities to experience things to be grateful for. The best part? It’s free.    The more you practice gratitude the more you will see gratitude. It’s a ripple effect. It will improve every area of your life...so why not use it?   This week I interviewed a few people who made a huge difference in my life by walking with me through some of my darkest moments while struggling with depression and anxiety. Reliving those memories during our interview caused me to reflect on how grateful I was for their presence, how far I have come, and how lucky I was to hang on even to the tiniest string of hope.   Lastly, I just wanted to thank YOU for living out loud, sharing your stories, and inspiring the world. We really are making a difference, one story at a time, and breaking the stigma of mental illness. Please connect with us in our private community and let us know what you are grateful for.   --   Topics Discussed: Simple ideas on how to express gratitude. What I personally do when I feel depleted.

Seeing someone you love suffering from a mental illness is extremely difficult, especially as a child. Processing through your own emotions all while being a support for them is a hard balancing act and can subject the caregiver with their own mental health struggles. This week we are connecting with the author of Breaking Into My Life, Michelle Dickinson about what it was like for her to grow up with a mother suffering from BiPolar disorder. Michelle graciously shares with us about her adoption journey, what it was like living in a home with mental illness, and how she has navigated adulthood after enduring trauma as a child. In this episode, you will learn about the importance of forgiveness, how we can humanize mental health which helps us remove the stigma, and why it is vital to separate mental illness from the individual. This is a powerful interview that is not only educational but also inspiring to those who are caregivers to loved ones suffering from mental illness. If you or someone you love is struggling with a mental illness, having a supportive community is everything. We would love to lock arms with you and walk alongside you in your journey.

Today, I wanted to discuss giving gratitude to the people who formed us. We have to remember where we came from and how we became who we are. Yes, we become who we are because of the circumstances and events in our lives, but we are really shaped by the PEOPLE in our lives. This episode I want to dedicate to my parents and mentor Rachel. My parents were huge influences in my life specifically on the importance of giving gratitude. Every time I participate in an act of gratitude I think of them. They always believed in me and my five siblings and they gave us the courage to shine in our own way. They expressed gratitude in everything and instilled in us the importance of being thankful. So much so it became a part of our DNA. I also wanted to highlight my mentor Rachel. For years she has believed in me and encouraged me to be fully myself. Even when things were sometimes hard to hear she spoke the truth and I always knew that she loved me. She formed who I am today and gave me confidence. On a separate note, we hit a big milestone this week by hitting the top 200 podcasts out of all categories in iTunes! A big “thank you” to all of our listeners! This milestone is surreal! What mine is yours so without all of your reviews and ratings we could not have done it. Everything we do is together.    Today’s gratitude shoutouts: Alyssa My parents Rachel Dvir   --   Topics Discussed: How my parents taught me about gratitude. The importance of being grateful for relationships. Why we should not discount the impact one person can make.   --   Connect with us!

This week we are digging into an extremely difficult but necessary topic. I had the special honor of connecting with Anne Moss, a mother, author, and founder of  Emotionally Naked, a blog dedicated to her late son Charles Aubrey Rogers, who lost his life to suicide. In this vulnerable interview, Anne recounts the last few years of her son’s life and shares openly with us about his mental health and drug addiction struggles that ultimately lead to his death by suicide. Anne graciously talks about the vivid facts that many of us shy away from, including the stigma that families face when in crisis to mental health, and the lack of support when dealing with drug addiction.  Anne’s book Diary of a Broken Mind comes out in October of this year, and we will have her on again to share more tips and resources to those who have a loved one who is struggling or a loved one they have lost. But first, we wanted to shares Charles story and let you know that whether you are struggling yourself or if you have a loved one who is, you are not alone. We will break the stigma, one story at a time, and as always, together is better.   If you or someone you know is struggling with suicidal thoughts please connect with someone.

Does gratitude REALLY make a difference? Do our lives truly improve through the daily practice of being thankful? Our guest for today’s segment of Attitude with Gratitude, Vismaya Rubin, says that it absolutely does and shares with us her personal story of how gratitude has shifted her life and given her a deep passion for helping others in finding the power of gratitude in their own life. Vismaya is the founder of Living Gratitude Today and she shares with us her method of using “Gratitude CPR” to overcome difficult circumstances or to just give a positive boost to our day. The formula she gives is super practical and will be something that you can practice anywhere and everywhere to immediately experience the power of gratitude in your own life. She also shares her story of growing up with and caring for her mother who suffered from bipolar and how she has even found gratitude through acts of service and caring for loved ones. We talk about the power of writing down what you are grateful for, how being present in the “now” is so powerful, and how we can literally retrain our brain to FIND the good by using Vismaya’s Gratitude CPR method.

In Episode Seven we connected with neuroscientist Selena Bartlett and heard about the sister that she lost to mental illness and how that shifted Selena’s career to studying “brain health” and neuroplasticity. Today, we dig in even deeper to hear about Selena’s own experience with depression and the way she was able to overcome it by “retraining” her brain. Selena knows with conviction both through her work and through her personal experience that we CAN rewire our brains. She says that the process she shares with us is “simple” but not “easy”. Selena gives practical tactics to help make our brains more resilient to pain and remain peaceful in the midst of chaos. In this episode, you will learn the role mirror neurons play in our depression, why the amygdala is wired to “protect us”, how we can train our brain to be “calm”, and how to use unconditional love as a tool to soothe loved ones through mental illness. She even asks me about the “moment of change” in my own journey and we discuss how using small moments can change the wiring of our brain.  Towards the end of the interview, we also dig into nutrition's role in mental health, why sugar should be avoided and how the brain negatively responds to it, and why Selena believes that exercise is the “elixir of life”. This interview is not only inspirational but incredibly informative.

It is no secret that I love the subject of gratitude. However, after recently going through a meditation led by our guest this week, David Scheiner, I realized that there was another level that I wanted to take my meditation and gratitude practice. David is a chiropractor who not only helps align others physically but also mentally and spiritually. From a young age, he says that he has always been fascinated by the spiritual and able to maintain a state of “calm”. He now helps others tune in and find inner peace despite the stressors that life may throw their way. In today’s episode, David shares with us why he believes that there is a “still” pond inside all of us and how we can become the “silent observer” to the stressors in our lives. He also talks about how meditation equips us with the “space of freedom” to fully accept others and those around us and find the “gift” in suffering.  David also leads us through a POWERFUL meditation that left me almost speechless at the end. If you struggle with overwhelming anxiety or wonder hope you can find hope in seemingly hopeless situations, this episode is FOR you! Let us know what you think by connecting with us on our Facebook group, because as always, together is better.     Connect with David: Website: http://davidscheiner.com Email: David@davidscheiner.com   -- Resources mentioned:  Hope for the Flowers: https://www.amazon.com/Hope-Flowers-Trina-Paulus/dp/0809117541 -- Topics Discussed: How to be calm and remain in the moment.

I am excited to introduce you to consultant, project manager, runner, and listener of the show, Andreas Zapletal whom I recently got to know through a mutual networking group that we are in. I am so grateful that Andreas reached out after listening to the show and generously shared his own mental health story with me. After hearing it, I knew I wanted to introduce him to you because his story is one many of us can relate to. Andreas says that he has dealt with forms of depression since childhood but it wasn’t until he endured the loss of a close friend that he really took a long look at his physical and mental health and knew that there needed to be massive changes. He then began the journey to get into physical shape and through that discovered that running also had a positive influence on his depressive symptoms.  In this powerful conversation, Andreas shares with us about how through this process he learned that he was putting too much of his self-worth in his work and the importance of living with strong values and making your health and family as a priority. We also talk about the moment he had to have a difficult conversation with his daughter about his friends suicide and how that was a wake-up call for him personally to pursue health.  Andreas also encourages us to reach out to someone if we are struggling. If you need someone to talk to please do not hesitate to reach out to our Facebook community. Remember, together is better.   --   Topics Discussed: The importance of keeping stress levels at a manageable point. How to find purpose through tragedy. How to honor giving a loved one “space” but also being “there” for them.    --   Connect with Andreas: Email: sfchiro@bellsouth.net     --   Connect with us on social!

Can you find gratitude in the midst of grief?    This week, on my birthday, my first cousin Avigail lost her battle to cancer, leaving behind a husband and five children. She was a brilliant woman and we will miss her terribly. Through this loss, I learned an important lesson that I want to share with you in today’s episode.   After her passing, I began to reflect on my life and the importance of being grateful for each day. We are not guaranteed tomorrow and I realized that I needed to be grateful for every day of my life. Although my birthday was a difficult day to celebrate, I did a small practice that was very powerful and want to challenge you to join me.   I took my 43rd birthday as an opportunity to make a list of 43 memories that I am grateful for. Each year of my life I reflected on and was overwhelmed with gratitude. This practice was incredibly eye-opening for me because I started to remember the precious memories that I had forgotten.   Today I invite you to join me. Even through grief and sadness there is always hope. Join our private Facebook community and let us know about your own list, and the memories you are grateful for. Because as always, together is better. --   Topics Discussed: Finding gratitude in grief. Being grateful for the life we live and appreciating each day.

This week we are sharing the POWERFUL story of Zahava List, the co-founder of Chazkeinu an organization that provides peer support and resources for Jewish women struggling with mental illness. Zahava’s passion for mental wellness began from her own story which she graciously shares with us today.   After delivering her first child, a baby boy, Zahava started experiencing manic episodes along with dark depression. She later was diagnosed with Bipolar 1 and began her journey of recovery along with mothering three more children. She shares with us what it was like to be a new mother and struggle with this illness and how she navigated the ups and downs of these major life changes all at once.   In this episode, we not only hear her powerful story, but learn more about bipolar, why breaking stigma is so important, and why we need to lean into a community and not suffer alone. We also find out how she used her struggles to find the courage not only for herself but for the countless amount of women that her organization reaches. Zahava provides so much hope to those who are struggling and we hope this episode encourages you that no matter what you may be suffering from, there is always hope.   --   Connect with Zahava and her Organization Chazkeinu: Website: https://chazkeinu.org/ Phone Number: 314-346-7414 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Chazkeinu/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/chazkeinu/ --   Topics Discussed: Why healing goes much deeper than symptoms simply “stopping”.  Going through pregnancy and caring for an infant while dealing with mental illness.

Do you struggle receiving thanks? Or compliments? If someone expresses gratitude to you, do you shake it off or struggle with knowing what to say? This week on Attitude with Gratitude, we are discussing how to receive gratitude and why it is so important to do so.  For my entire life, I have struggled with receiving gratitude from others. I believe this comes from wanting to be humble, or perhaps an insecurity, but I know it isn’t a healthy habit. I notice that when I thank others they receive it graciously which makes me feel good as the one who says “thank you”. So why do I have a hard time receiving it myself?  I recently did a little research on this topic and in this episode share with you what I find. I want to be open with my own journey to hopefully help you learn how to receive gratitude yourself. I love the topic of gratitude and reflecting on it every week. It challenges me in my own journey and my own habits and I hope it does for you as well. This week I invite you to reflect on how you receive gratitude and how you respond to others. If you have any thoughts or tips please join our private Facebook community and share with us your experience.

Do you or someone you love suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)? In today’s episode, I had the honor of sitting down with entrepreneur, and music enthusiast, Paul Sokol as he generously shares with us about his experiences with BPD and how it has affected him both professionally and personally.    I first connected with Paul after reading a powerful (and vulnerable) post that he made on social media about his mental health journey. In our conversation, Paul opens up about his resistance to seek treatment and why since then, he is now an advocate for others to seek professional help.   Paul shares with us the common symptoms of BPD as well suggests tools for coping including DBT therapy, emotional wheels, and affirmations. We also talk about how loved ones can support those with BPD and why money should never be used as an excuse to keep you from seeking help.   If you need a supportive community please find us on facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2079694042156503/ --   Resources mentioned:    Book : I Hate You Don’t Leave Me: https://www.amazon.com/Hate-You-Dont-Leave-Understanding-Personality/dp/0399536213 Stop Walking on Eggshells (For those supporting loved one with BPD): https://www.amazon.com/Stop-Walking-Eggshells-Borderline-Personality/dp/1572246901 --   Topics Discussed: What is Borderline Personality Disorder?

In this week’s Attitude of Gratitude, I wanted to do something a little bit different. Over the past couple of weeks, we have been talking about finding gratitude in things or situations that we have in our lives. In today's episode, I wanted to talk about being grateful for PEOPLE. Specifically, those who do very small, seemingly insignificant acts of kindness or service for us. I learned about the importance of this form of gratitude from one of my friends who taught me about always being thankful and kind to everyone. He went above and beyond to help everyone feel appreciated, like the waitress at the restaurant, or the person at the checkout counter.  It is important to allow yourself to really FEEL gratitude for the small things and truly SEE the good that others are doing for us. This doesn’t just affect us but causes a ripple effect of positive energy which will continue to influence others. Connect with us and let us know about a small act of service that you showed gratitude for this week. Join the conversation in our Facebook group! https://www.facebook.com/groups/2079694042156503/   --   Topics Discussed: How we can use gratitude as a ripple effect. Why we should give accelerated (and authentic) thanks. The importance of seeing others that are not often thanked.   --   Connect with us on social!
