Don’t Have The Self-Discipline and Energy To Create The Life You Want? (ep-159)

June 24th, 2020

You’ve listened to all the podcasts, read all the books, saw all the FB lives and you know deep in your bones that your life matters and it’s time to take action on your dreams.

What do you want?

To start a blog?

A career change?

Write a book?

You also know that you’re life is full already.

How on earth are you going to create space for something new?

So you tell yourself ‘I’m going to wake up earlier!’

You set your alarm for 6 am the next day, eat food you know isn’t good for you followed by your routine social media scroll.

Then you go to bed.

Comes morning, your alarm goes off at 6am but you can’t get up.

You snooze your phone and go to bed until the kids wake you up.

That day looks like mayhem. You know exactly why.

So you promise yourself ‘starting from tomorrow I will wake up at 6am!’

But then the same story happens.

Before you know it you find yourself in a loop of guilt, shame and regret.

‘Why can’t I find the energy to master myself?’

‘Why do I suck with self-discipline?’

In today’s episode, I explain why this happens and what’s the first step you need to take in order to break this cycle.

This is 100% possible and you owe this to yourself!

Enjoy listening!

Xo,

I want to hear from you!

Diversity and Inclusivity Begin At Home (ep-158)

June 17th, 2020

Today on the podcast we’re continuing the conversation about diversity, inclusivity, privilege, social injustice, profiling, discrimination and fairness among all human beings.

I believe that we are all children of God and deserve basic human rights, feeling like we belong in society and the world, feeling safe and acknowledged for who we are without discrimination, or the need to protect ourselves and our children constantly from bias, prejudice, injustice.

As a woman, wife and mother I wouldn’t want to live in a world where my life force energy is spent in the wrong places – like fearing my children aren’t safe on the streets, or not trusting authorities to protect us or treat us differently just because of the colour of my skin.

In this episode, you’ll hear my conversation with Megan Stewart Hodge, the founder of Cultiver. She is an executive, public speaker and advocate for diversity and cultures of inclusion in the workplace.

Megan strives for whole-person success in her interwoven career and personal journey, prioritizing authenticity in life and as a leader in the insurance industry. Megan has cultivated her expertise as a leader throughout her career with a strong focus on operational strategy, innovation, fostering talent and inclusive culture development and consummate client advisory.

Megan is the author of Voix, commencing in January 2020 in the glu, a monthly storytelling series highlighting the imperative of using our individual and collective voices to advance and empower women in all facets of our lives.

Megan believes it is critical to use our voices and our positions of leadership to drive meaningful change for a more inclusive industry and society.

Megan, like myself, is a wife and mother who believes in equal rights and strives to educate herself on big, scary and loaded topics and introducing them to our families in a palatable, digestible way.

Highlights from this episode:

  • Megan’s story and how she came to do this work
  • Definitions – diversity, inclusion, privilege, social injustice, profiling, discrimination, fairness. What does this mean and why does it matter?
  • The importance of having freedom for expressing yourself fully, authentically and feeling safe in the world
  • Why does this conversation matter for mothers?
  • Why does this have to start at home?
  • Tips and tools for having age-appropriate conversations about race at home with children (videos, books, documentaries, etc).
  • What are some examples of exhibiting inclusive and diverse behaviour at home and in the outside world?

This is an important conversation I recommend for women, especially if you’re raising children and your vision for them is living in a world that is fair for all human beings.

If you are, like me, a newbie to this topic, this conversation will help you to get started. Remember, social justice is a marathon, not a sprint, and both Megan and I believe this has got to start at home. Even if you feel like there’s nothing you can do to contribute to change, there’s a lot you can do at home. Listen to how Megan and I are doing it and join in with us.

Megan and I want to hear from you!

How are you educating yourself and your children about social injustice and what are some examples of the things you do at home? Comment below.

How Your Menstrual Cycle Responds To Stress (ep-155)

May 6th, 2020

In today’s episode, you’ll hear me chat with Deborah Maragopoulos, a Family Nurse Practitioner specializing in neuro-immune-endocrinology. Also known as the Hormone Queen, Deborah became an expert in gender identity, hormones and DNA after the birth of her intersex child.

I’ve reached out to Deborah after my own menstrual cycle went haywire.

Highlights from today’s episode:

  • Deborah’s story of birthing an intersex child and her desire to understand hormones to support her child.
  • The hypothalamus gland and its role in hormonal health
  • What’s going on with our female bodies right now? Why are our cycles going haywire (my experience as a case study)
  • What’s the connection between adrenals and ovaries?
  • Is there such a thing as bad exercise? Is exercise stimulating our adrenals in a negative way?
  • What can we do nutritionally to stimulate Progesterone?
  • How about male hormones? How do their bodies respond to current stress and what we can do to support their wellbeing?
  • In the end, Deborah shared her definition of feminine power as well as what makes her feel confident, energized and sexy as a woman.

This is an important interview that will help you understand your body better so you don’t panic, stress too much or feel like you’re losing control over your body. We’re in this together! I am going through this alongside you and right now what works really well for me is educating and empowering myself with knowledge, ideas and practical action steps I can do.

Deborah is a powerhouse of information, knowledge and expertise and I hope you’ll enjoy listening to her as much as I did!

Enjoy listening!

Transforming The Core of Motherhood with Jennifer Oliver (ep-154)

April 29th, 2020

Today on the podcast I’m chatting with Jennifer Oliver, from fitmama.com

Highlights from this episode

1. Jennifer’s story of how she injured her back while being a mama of two young kids and how she’d emerged from that.

2. Why do women lose their confidence after becoming a mom?

3. What is true? Our physiology is a reflection of our psychology or the other way around?

4. The connection between core strength and having foreign inserts in the body (i.e. IUD) and the body’s response to it.

5. Are crunches good for us?

6. The difference between yoga and pilates and engagement of core?

7. How soon can you begin pilates postpartum?

8. What is a reformer?

9. Jen walked up through some breath work to strengthen the core

10. Jen answers my questions about her as a woman, wife and mother (this is where we get real!)

This episode is a must-listen for all mamas who are struggling with getting back in shape postpartum as well as women who are way past labour but wish to strengthen their body while mothering their kids.

In my own personal experience, the core is the area of the body where I feel connected to my essence as a human being. It isn’t news that after labour and delivery many of us feel like we’ve ‘lost ourselves’ after motherhood and in my opinion reconnecting and strengthening that area of the body is a great place to start!

Using The Four Phases of Your Menstrual Cycle as a Healing & Self-Care Framework (with Dr. Alex Golden) [ep-150]

March 26th, 2020

I am so excited to introduce you to Dr. Alex Golden, the co-founder of Zesty Ginger. Together with her partner, Megan Blacksmith, they teach women how to live in alignment with the four phases of their menstrual cycle.

Dr. Alex Golden is known for her integrative MD approach to health through both functional and conventional medicine and for teaching women the tools they need to be their own health advocates. 

You are going to LOVE this interview, we’ve cover so much important points you need to know about as a woman!

This episode is an absolute MUST listen!

I have learned so much from Dr. Golden, she’s incredibly wise and intelligent and her life’s journey is inspiring on so many levels. She and I both have a Russian background and we talk about that too, navigating the Russian mentality and culture, healing from the Soviet upbringing is not an easy task. The Soviet-style of parenting is ridden with shame, critic, structure and a distance between parent and child. This is not an easy beast to dismantle and heal from and we both are still working on that.

Highlights from today’s episode:

  • Alex’s story and journey from healing chronic pain all the way through her current work with women
  • The heartbreak of not having children, navigating a conversation with her husband, parents, in-laws and the pressure of that.
  • The curse of the good girl and grieving her so we can step into our best selves as women.
  • How Alex and Megan have discovered working with the four phases.
  • What makes the four phases work and the practice of trusting yourself as a woman.
  • The differentiation between owning your power as a woman and what you think you should be able to do compared to men.
  • Hormone balancing and working with the 4 phases of the menstrual cycle can be grouped into 2 overarching goals:
    1. Optimizing inflammatory cascades in the body (phases 1&2)
    2. Optimizing natural detoxification functions for a healthy metabolism and to properly process and remove hormones and hormone-mimicking substances (phases 3&4).
  • What to do if you don’t have a menstrual cycle?
  • What is behind the name zesty ginger?

How a Working Mama is RVing Around The US with Four Kids? An Interview with Meg Brunson (ep-148)

March 12th, 2020

Yes, you’ve read it right.

Today on the show we’re going to slightly steer from the typical conversations we’re having on this podcast and get a sneak peek into the life of a breadwinner/working mom and how she’s travelling around the US with her family for over six months.

Meg Brunson is a mommy blogger turned Facebook employee who left the 9-5 for a life of freedom and flexibility. She’s currently RVing across the US with her family, while empowering other families to live their dreams, by pursuing their passions together. Her clients are building influence online – leveraging the power of Facebook and Instagram marketing to enjoy predictable leads, traffic, and positive ROI – all while spending more time making happy memories together, as FamilyPreneurs.

Meg is a professional speaker, children’s book author, host of the FamilyPreneur podcast and CEO of EIEIO Marketing.

Highlights from today’s episode

  • Meg’s story and her belief in family and entrepreneurship
  • In six months they visited 30 states, driven 20K miles, and had so many amazing experiences.
  • Want to travel more? You might have to redefine travel and what it means to you
  • Homeschooling while RVing
  • Reintegrating kids back into the schooling system after homeschooling
  • How they handle weather fluctuations while RVing?
  • Cleaning poop, showering, tire popping in the RV. It’s not always rainbows and kitty cats.
  • Working and staying productive while RVing.
  • How to afford all of this travel?
  • Food options and eating healthy while travelling
  • A juicy question – how do they have sex in the RV?
  • As well as what makes Meg feel confident, energized and sexy.

This is a fun but also informative episode especially if you have a desire to travel more but hold yourself back due to fear of the unknown (money, kids, work, etc). I make sure all of my interviews are fun and engaging, but this one will definitely sound like eavesdropping on a conversation between two mamas.

Movement In Tune With The Rhythms of Your Female Cycle with Jenn Pike

January 16th, 2020

Today on the podcast I get to geek out with my colleague Jenn Pike, a Registered holistic nutritionist and medical exercise specialist all about the female cycle and how to sync our movement in alignment with the four phases of our menstrual cycle.

This has been such a fun conversation!

If you love talking about the female body, movement, energy, embodiment, and all things women's health this is an episode you don't want to miss!

As women we cycle through a rhythm of a four-phase cycle like Jenn said in this episode, we've been thought that our period is the main event, however, it's not the only event. Our menstrual cycle is divided into four distinct phases which affect how we feel, what we want to eat, our libido and sex drive we want to connect intimately, they affect how we sleep, and the last main thing affected is our bowel movements.

These are the six female markers which I teach my clients to pay attention to when they are on a journey back to themselves and their body. This is super important when we, women are learning to engage more of our feminine energy and as a result step into our most confident, energized and sexy self. This is our superpower and I am so excited for you to meet Jenn and try out her newest program Synced which is what we're going to talk about on today's show.

Highlights from the interview

  • Jenn's story and how she got into the women's health industry
  • Women's bodies women's wisdom - your body is your best health coach and the best way to take care of yourself.
  • The four phases of the menstrual cycle and how to move your body in alignment with it
  • The energetics of the female menstrual cycle
  • Women's connection to the moon
  • The difference between a female and a male cycle (men cycle too!)
  • The best way to teach our daughters to live cyclically from a young age
  • Our menstrual cycle is our monthly report card, pay attention to it!
  • How her program can help women with their sex drive and improving libido.
  • In the second part of the interview Jenn shares her definition of feminine power, her non-negotiables for self-care, what makes her feel confident, energized and sexy as a woman.
  • What advice her now mom-self would have given to her now mom-self
  • Jenn's struggles as a woman
  • And other goodies!

Motherhood, Anxiety, Postpartum Depression and Everything in Between with Julia Kristina

October 31st, 2019

Hey mamas,

Today on the show I get to chat with Julia Kristina from juliakristina.com. She's a Registered Clinical Counsellor and the founder and host of the weekly YouTube channel Julia Kristina Mah where she talks about mindfulness, mindset and mental wellness with over 100K subscribers! She's also a wife and mom of three.

I found Julia on my own quest healing from codependency and love following her online.

Today on the show we focused our conversation on motherhood, anxiety, postpartum depression and everything in between and my hope is that her advice and expertise will help you to change your mindset around your own mental health and serve as a reminder that you are not broken, weak, weird, stupid or anything else that circles in your mind.

You are whole and complete just as you are and if you need some help from a therapist, counsellor or a coach it doesn't make you less than, it only makes you a seeker who's determined to live life to the fullest.

I have shared many times that throughout my own journey I have hired coaches, therapists, mentors and healers, and still do because I wholeheartedly believe that we were not meant to do this alone.

Here's what we've talked about:

  • The difference between coaching and therapy.
  • The stigma of mental health and what to do when you're afraid of facing hard things.
  • Our emotional reactions, how they're created and how to take more control of your own life and change.
  • The mother wound and individuating from our mothers to gain more confidence, energy and owning your power back.
  • Individuating from our mothers and why we have to stop blaming our moms.
  • The one thing we must do to raise confident daughters?
  • Anxiety in motherhood and how to lower its intensity
  • The need for control and living in isolation and the price we're paying as moms
  • The steps moms can take to heal from postpartum depression
  • Are antidepressants and antianxiety medication safe?

I know your dirty little secret…

July 15th, 2019

Hey mama,

This weekend my 3-year-old drove us crazy.

She wanted to wear four layers of dresses one on top of the other.

This makes her feel beautiful.

What she doesn't understand is that it's too hot and wearing so many layers will make it worse.

She feels stuff but doesn't know yet how to express it.

So there was a lot of screaming and frantic behavior.

I was on the verge of losing my mind.

She was absolutely hysteric.

It was then that a lightbulb went off for me.

I remembered an article I've read a couple of weeks ago about women's health a hundred years ago and that helped me to calm down.

This will blow your mind!

Do you know the real meaning of the word 'hysteria'?

Ready for it?

In Latin, it's 'suffering in the uterus'.

Yup.

You know what that means, right?

That being hysteric is a women's problem.

In other words, being born a woman is a curse.

You know this stigma right?

Men are not hysteric.

Men are perceived to be logical, rational, stable, linear, consistent.

Women, on the other hand, are hysteric.

It's almost like we are doomed to be anxious, illogical, inconsistent, and cray-cray just because we were born female.

I know your dirty little secret.

I know that you live your life on the cusp of losing control of:

your emotions,

your appetite,

your sexuality.

I know that sometimes, you're a hair-trigger away from exploding.

I know that deep inside you quietly believe that… well, you're too much.

I know that very often you feel like you’ve stepped inside the skin of a different person – that you are not being yourself.

I also know that you feel guilty and ashamed about it.

Very similarly to how my daughter felt.

I know that you're asking yourself:

'What's wrong with me?!'

"Why can't I get control of myself?'

I know because I'm a woman too.

I know how it feels to be a woman in a man's world.

To this day, women's health and pain are mostly not understood.

It's like trying to explain to my toddler that wearing four layers of puffy dresses one on top of the other is too hot.

She doesn't get it.

She doesn't care.

All she wants is to feel pretty.

This got me to think.

What if we're approaching women's health issues wrong?

* What if we are not giving women and girls the right tools to take care of themselves?

* What if instead of being logical and rational with my daughter I tried to think like her?

* What if I understood her emotionally instead of sending her the signal that she is hysteric?

So I did.

Wanna know what happened?

She burst in tears.

Gave me a huge hug.

And allowed me to take off the dresses.

She felt like mommy gets her.

What if we don't get ourselves?

What if our very own woman-ness is not yet understood?

What if this is the real reason for our struggles?

Struggles at home.

Struggles at work.

Struggles with relationships.

What would happen if you started understanding yourselves better?

How would this change your:

* health?

* work?

* parenting?

* marriage?

* sex life?

Think about this.

Why is it that to this day when a woman says how she feels, what she wants or what she needs, someone always knows better?

Her doctor, her mom/dad, her teacher, her husband...

What would happen if you've owned your woman-ness more?

How would your life look and feel like if you lived in alignment with your feminine current instead of against it?

What difference would this make to our daughters to think of themselves as 'normal' instead of 'hysteric'? 

This is not wishful thinking.

This is possible.

This is the most sustainable way to live as a woman, wife, and mother.

I have been living in alignment with my feminine current for the past five years and I have personally coached dozens of women through the same process.

What's possible for you when you live in alignment with your feminine current?

* Life won't feel hard anymore.

* You won't be a victim of your body.

* You will be able to carve out time for yourself out of your busy day.

* You will have time for fun and play.

* You will feel more connected to your husband and kids.

Are you ready for some radical self-care? Want to know how it's done?

The Feminine Current Course is where you begin.

In this course I will teach you how to:

* Understand the power of your body

* Use your hormones to your advantage

* Make connections between your six female markers

* Drop the habits you hate, and pick up habits you never thought possible

* Make your own happiness a priority, by taking small steps

Want in?

Click here to see what's included in the course.

Whether if you feel out of alignment emotionally or your body is already manifesting physical symptoms this course if for you!

Remember that you are not doomed for suffering, pain and struggle just because you're a woman.

It's just that you don't yet understand yourself.

Give yourself the gift of alignment.

See you on the other side!

Dorit

Am I Depressed?

July 4th, 2019

Hey mama, 

This week I got an email from a client and in it, she wrote:

'I get these spells of time and I question if I'm depressed.

Seemingly everything is OK.

I have a husband and a daughter. I'm not majorly ill, barely a sinus issue, I have a good life, I have an anniversary and a birthday this week, we're going out tonight and away for the weekend, but nothing really brings me joy right now.

I don't have to feel happiness 24/7 but I should feel something and I just feel numb right now.'

Are you familiar with this feeling?

I know I am. 

More often than I would like I am flooded with low energy, feel very drained and tired.

I don't want to do anything - get ready, go out, be nice, smile or talk. 

All the things that we have to do to 'show up' in our lives, right?

So what should you do?

How to shift this around? 

This is what I cover in today's podcast episode (episode #110). 

 

Hope this is helpful and if you resonated with my tips please share this episode with one mama in your life who needs to hear this right now. 

It takes a village to raise a child AND a mama. 

Do your part, show up for yourself and others. 

Sending you much love and many blessings, 

XOXO,

Dorit

Hate Seeing Yourself In The Mirror? [ep-108]

June 19th, 2019

Hey mama, 

Meet Linda. 

A 42-year-old wife and mama to two beautiful girls.

An executive at a thriving start-up company. 

She has everything she ever wanted. According to her parents she 'won' at life.

So why does she feel like crap?

She is confused.
She doesn't feel in control of her health.
She doesn't feel like she knows what she's doing. 
She knows that she had neglected herself and her marriage.
She has zero interest in sex (her husband is pissed off about it). 
She's afraid that she's screwing up her kids. 
She's burnt out. 
In other words, she is 'sucked dry'. 

Linda also can't stand seeing herself in the mirror. She hates her body. 
She wishes to be thinner and feels betrayed by her body. 

One thing Linda is sure of is that she is DONE. 

Done suffering. 
Done struggling. 
Done feeling stuck. 
Done feeling like a victim. 
Done complaining and bitching about how bad she feels. 

Linda is ready and willing to listen.

Finally

She had heard me say that today's women suffer because of two factors that drag women down. Until she learns to set herself free from both of those things she will continue to suffer. 

Wanna know what are those factors? Tune into today's podcast episode.

‘Self-care’ is not enough to fix how much moms are burnt out [ep-107]

June 12th, 2019

Hey mama, 

Today on the show I talk about the one topic that is nagging at us, moms, like crazy. Constantly.

Wanna guess what that is?

Work-life balance. 

Oh man. If I could get a dime for every time I've heard a mama complain about this I'd be rich by now. 

On the one hand, we're bombarded with well-meaning advice about how to find balance as a mom. 

On the other, you'll find experts, gurus, authors, creators, coaches, and others we look up to openly say that there is no such thing as balance. In other words, get used to living like a crazy person. 

Hustle/chaos/insanity is a part of the deal. Embrace it. 

I. Don't. Agree. 

Curious why not? Check out today's podcast episode. 

It might change how you view balance, hustle, ambition, and achievement and how to thrive as a woman in the midst of it all. 

Do you agree? Disagree? I wanna know what you think, find me over at Instagram @healthbeginswithmom. 

Sending you much love & healing,

XOXO
Dorit

Anxiety In Motherhood: How I Learned To Calm, Self-Sooth And Control My Fears [EP-106]

May 29th, 2019

Hey love, 

Have you ever asked yourself,

"What is wrong with me?"

"Why can't I get my shit together?"

"Why am I always afraid and anxious that something really bad is going to happen?!"

"Why am I never calm? Why do I worry about stupid things?"

Here's the truth, anxiety in motherhood is a real thing. 

There are so many reasons why we moms feel anxious, "am I doing this right? Mom guilt, comparing yourself to others, feeling like you are missing out, should you have another baby, can you love another baby the same way?" An so on and so forth...

It is clear that living in a constant state of high stress and anxiety is detrimental to your health and the health of your family, so today on the show I talk about how I manage anxiety in my own life and practical tips to hopefully help you feel calmer, self-soothe and have a greater sense of control over your life. 

Remember that you are enough and you deserve to take care of yourself. 

Choose yourself first ALWAYS. 

Sending you much love & healing, 

XOXO,

Dorit
