Friends since they were kids, Annie Grace and Darcy Gaechter reconnect in this episode. Things they have in common: they have both chosen to live alcohol free, and they have both written books. Darcy’s book, Amazon Woman, is a memoir about the expedition that led her to become the first and only woman on the planet to kayak the entire Amazon River from source to sea. Listen as she shares about her experience on the Amazon as well as her path to stop drinking and how the two journeys intersected.
If you asked me about the one thing that makes This Naked Mind so different from anything else, I would have to say emotion. It is the emotion when people feel really ready to make a change. When they’ve had that mindset shift, when they’ve gone through all the materials and the methodology. They get this feeling that it’s not that they never get to drink again it’s that they never have to drink again.
Interestingly, according to all sorts of new research, it is emotion, especially positive emotion, more than anything else that predicates how long a change will stick, how long it will last. It is emotion. When you feel excited about a change in your life. When you feel thrilled you’re making this new difference, instead of feeling deprived like you’re missing out, everything changes. And it really makes it that This Naked Mind can stick for the long term.
