In today’s episode, Annie talks with Janey Lee Grace, mom, author, presenter, and holistic living expert who once toured the world as a rock and roll singer. Among other things, Janey Lee talks about how she went from having an off switch for alcohol in her younger days to becoming a daily drinker in motherhood, how she shifted from a cycle of taking breaks from alcohol to making a lasting commitment to alcohol free living, and how medical professionals responded when she voiced concerns about her drinking. 

Are you looking to connect with like-minded people? Sometimes maybe you feel like you have all this information from doing This Naked Mind or The Alcohol Experiment, but you’re living in a world where people don’t speak your language.

That is why I created The Exchange. The Exchange from This Naked Mind is an online community where we meet face to face, live with video calls multiple times a week with people from all over the world just to connect and have somewhere that you are seen, you are heard, and you feel less alone.  A place where you can really give back and get the support you need.
