In this month’s coaching episode, This Naked Mind head coach Scott Pinyard is joined by Certified Naked Mind Coach Wendy McCallum who specializes in burnout and balance. Wendy shares some of her drinking story and talks about burnout – how we define it and what are the most common symptoms. Then, the coaches answer two questions: one from someone who is using alcohol to cope with stress, knowing it’s hurting but also feeling like it’s helping, and wondering how to handle the stress without alcohol; and one from someone who started drinking again and is struggling to stop.
Hi, it’s Annie Grace. I wanted to interrupt this podcast, I guess the end of this podcast, to say that if you are totally serious about actually truly and forevermore transforming your relationship with alcohol, really leaving it behind in the rear view mirror for once and forever more, and changing your psychology about it, we have a program called The PATH that is created specifically for you. Now it’s not for you if you are still dabbling or still trying to figure out where you want to be or maybe even still want to moderate.
All those things are fine, but if you are beyond that and you’re like, “No, I just want to be done with this. I’m ready to invest some time and I’m ready to just make this happen.” I want you to check out nakedmindpath.com, and join us in The PATH where you can truly make this lasting change you want in your life.
And, as always – rate, review, and subscribe to this podcast, as it truly helps the message reach somebody who might need to hear it today.
