Mind-Body Evolution

Courageous • Centered • Responsibility 

We often think of fear as something that keeps us small and stuck – it can, in fact, do all of those things. But there’s also the flip side of fear – the empowering side – the brave side. This side of fear informs. It allows you to dig deep into yourself and find ways to heal, grow and prosper. Today I welcome Sarah Hagstrom Join us to talk about her journey through fear and learning to heal her own body through a mind-body approach. She’s  determined to make the world a healthier and happier place through her growing health coaching businesses with healthy bottom lines, helping folks establish strong foundations from the start.

Episode Highlights:

  • Do the things that bring you joy, simply for the sake of joy.
  • Don’t miss your joy opportunities! 
  • Sarah grew up with a deep seeded fear of “who is going to take care of me? I have to take care of myself.”
  • This fear caused lots of physical ailments.
  • Documentary: Food matters – Changed Sarah’s life.
  • Humans tend to become unconscious around food choices.
  • Community can be created in a lot of ways. Seek those who can help you have the life you most desire.
  • Any behavior (including eating) we do, constantly, as a coping mechanism is unhealthy. 
  • Every human is different. What works for one person may not work for someone else.
  • Just like everything else in life, reassessment is important.
  • Don’t just “trust the experts.” You know yourself, trust yourself, and advocate for yourself.
  • Stress and emotions that are left unattended show up as physical issues. Give words to your truth.

  • All humans have mixed emotions. It’s ok – welcome them all.
  • Our bodies heal when we give them the tools to heal – that is mind, body, and soul.
  • Be compassionate to your fellow humans – you never know what they are experiencing 
  • You don’t need to be working non-stop. It’s not about “doing the most” it’s about how you feel!
  • My natural instinct is to use positive words. There’s real work in allowing all thoughts and feelings without judgment.
