Tips From The Show

Here are Amber’s 3 tips to help you move forward and create the life you want:

1. Assessing your thoughts:  Understanding where you are and what you are feeling and what is missing.  There are a lot of emotions that can come up with this….it is easier said than done.  Don’t plan on this being a short process.  A journal might help you process and track your thoughts and emotions.  This is also where a coach is so helpful because they can guide you through the process.
2. Creating different thoughts.  What changes do you want to make?  What thoughts and beliefs do you need to get there?
3. Making those thoughts into actions.

Episode 293: How to Cut Sugar Addiction and Emotional Eating with Melissa Rohlfs

Episode 293: How to Cut Sugar Addiction and Emotional Eating with Melissa Rohlfs

Summer is here and we all want to feel our best, but it isn’t easy if you have unhealthy eating habits like sugar addiction and emotional eating.  In this episode, I am joined by holistic health coach Melissa Rohlfs as she shares her three strategies to help you overcome these obstacles to your health goals.

About Our Guest

Melissa Rohlfs is a certified holistic health and life coach helping busy women break free from sugar and stress/emotional eating so they can be calm, confident, and in control.  Around food.  Around sugar.  In stressful situations.  In their bodies.  In their life.  She is committed to empowering women to break free from dieting, emotional eating, and self-image issues so they can ditch the diet mentality, and feel empowered in their own skin and be free to be who God made them to be.

After her own tumultuous history with food {withholding and then later in life, bingeing}, she learned how to deal with the core issues around her broken relationship with food.  As a result, she felt called to go to school and learn to teach other women how to do the same.  She graduated from the Health Coach Institute as a Holistic Health and Life Coach in 2018 and is the proud owner of Free 2 B Coaching.  She is a proud Boilermaker alumna living in Tucson with her husband, Chad, and two kiddos.

Tips From The Show

When you want to go after food that does not help you reach your goals, follow these steps:

  1. Stay hydrated.  Sometimes we are thirsty, but we think we are hungry.  Have a glass of water and wait 5 minutes.
  2. There is power in the pause.  You don’t have to tell yourself you can’t have it.  Instead, just take a few minutes to wait.
  3. While you are waiting, replace judgment with curiosity.  Ask yourself what you are looking for and how else you can get it other than eating what is calling for you.

Episode 292: What Happens When A Workaholic Goes Part-Time

Episode 292: What Happens When A Workaholic Goes Part-Time

Have you ever thought about cutting back at work to give more time to other areas of your life?  It’s like the most common daydream for working moms and more and more of us are doing it.  But what if you are a workaholic?  Um….yeah.  I am with you.  I recently went part-time at work and this is what happened and the struggles I went through.  I have learned from this experience and now you can too!

Tips From The Show

Want to cut back for yourself?  Here are some tips to help you navigate the waters:

  1. Be intentional about what you want and need and why you need it
  2. Seek to make it happen.  Make a plan and be clear on what you need to produce and make a plan to achieve it.
  3. Prepare mentally.  It can be a hard shift…see the three things I learned down below.
  4. Prepare your environment for success.  Get organized!
  5. Give yourself grace.  Slowing down is a new way of being and it will be a journey full of lessons to learn.

After slowing down myself, I found it to be a hard process.  Here are the 3 biggest lessons I learned from the process.

  1. Being still is important and really hard.  You’ll have more time that is not filled with the “hurry of life”.  This feels uncomfortable.  Fill the void with God.  Use the time to put him first and go on this journey with him.
  2. My mind is wired to think about work when it’s not time to work.  It pulls me back into wanting to work more but I have to learn my new way of being.  So, time blocking has been huge to set those boundaries.  I also have an ongoing list on my phone so when those thoughts come up, I have a place for them to go so when it is work time, I can focus on executing those things.
  3. My identity has been challenged.  I am having to view myself as a whole person and not just what I do for work and the value that I provide there.  Focusing on the value I bring to my family and community has been really important to me.

Episode 291: How To Worship To Grow Your Faith With Ginny Owens

A big part of Christian life is worship.  While there are many different ways that we worship our Lord, music can create such an emotional way of connecting with God.  When we go through different seasons, that can be even more important to lean on God through worship.  This can grow your faith in a big way and in this episode, we are joined by award-winning recording artist, Ginny Owens to dive into this topic.  Ginny shares her story of how God has shown up in her life through music and how God helped bring her through a season of burnout in her career.

Ginny has a new album and an accompanying book called Singing In The Dark.  If you want to grow in how you worship, this is for you!  You can get a copy of the book here.

Tips From The Show

In this episode, Ginny shares how her career in music led to burnout as she took the gift that God gave her and made it about something other than serving him.  We are all guilty of this from time to time.  She shares how God gave her grace and created a season of community and stillness to give her rest and bring her back to focus on him.

Ginny shares about the unique emotional connection that music creates when we seek closeness of the Lord in our lives.  

She then walks us through the different kinds of songs that we find in scripture.
