My guest this week is Chanel Dokun, an author, life planner, and relationship expert trained in marriage and family therapy. Through her speaking and coaching, women get clarity on their life purpose so they can unlock their potential and build a life they love. In addition to working with clients one-on-one, Chanel is the co-founder of Healthy Minds NYC, a thriving group therapy practice in Manhattan. Prior to her work in mental healthcare and coaching, she worked in publishing at Hearst Magazines. Her first book, Life Starts Now: How to Create the Life You've Been Waiting For, releases Fall 2022. 2:48 – Chanel 101 She loves drinking honey lavender lattes, volunteering with local entrepreneur organizations, and spending time with her family. When she's not working, she splits her time between New York City and Atlanta with her psychiatrist husband and son. 9:51 – Finding life purpose People take themselves too seriously, and we put too much pressure on ourselves to figure everything out. There's more joy, uncertainty and discovery when you take the pressure off yourself. Three questions to ask yourself: Who am I? Where am I headed? How am I going to get there? 12:47 – Living from the outside in People are intent on living from the outside in. We have so many voices. We are so connected, and it feels like we are pressured to conform to a particular way of living. We take on other people's voices as their own.  Women, in particular, are looking at external reference points. We need to shift from that place that often leads to us getting things we don't want or aren't satisfying. 22:02 – Standing in your own identity Chanel nearly drowned in shallow water as a child and finally figured out she could stand up and save herself. In women's lives, they often feel like they're drowning and failing in life even though from the outside everything seems good. You need to stand in your own identity 37:32 – Reclaim your morning Do a morning dump and figure out what's plaguing you. Then have a clean slate to start your day. We tend to pile everybody else's needs and expectations on ourselves. 41:35 – Get to know you Strangest pet peeve? When people text her. Memorable or impactful experience? Taking her son to see her book in a bookstore. FEATURED QUOTES Who am I? What do I do well? What are my gifts? Where am I going with my life, and how am I going to get there? People take themselves too seriously. People are intent on living from the outside in. We have so many voices. We are so connected, and it feels like we are pressured to conform to a particular way of living.

Tracy McCubbin is the author of Making Space, Clutter Free: The Last Book On Decluttering You'll Ever Need (June 4th, 2019). She has always referred to herself as "Obsessive Compulsive Delightful," but who knew she could turn that trait into a booming business? While working for a major television director in Los Angeles, Tracy discovered she had the ability to see through any mess and clearly envision a clutter-free space. Coupled with keen time-management and organizational skills, Tracy soon found more and more people were asking her for help. Before she knew it, dClutterfly was born. Ten years and thousands of clients later, dClutterfly is Los Angeles' premier organizing and decluttering company. Tracy is a regularly featured expert on Hallmark's Home & Family, has a column on MindBodyGreen, and has regular declutter segments on Fox 5 and ABC Eyewitness News, KTLA Morning Show, KCAL9, and Good Day Sacramento.

Bio Caroline Wright is a cook, writer and terminal brain cancer patient. During her undergraduate education in Paris, Caroline was inspired to turn a life-long interest and passion for food into a career. Caroline attended the La Varenne culinary program with Anne Willan in Burgundy, then started her career writing and styling recipes as a food editor for Martha Stewart's Everyday Food magazine, which folded in 2012. Her original recipes have appeared in a variety of national magazines since, including Cooking Light, Southern Living, Every Day with Rachael Ray, Real Simple and Health. While writing articles, she authored three cookbooks: Twenty Dollar, Twenty-Minute Meals (Workman 2013) and Cake Magic! (Workman 2016), two personal books that capture her fresh and friendly recipe style, plus another that transformed the recipes of a Catalan chef and restauranteur into home cooking, Catalan Food (Clarkson Potter 2018). Then, in 2017, Caroline was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. After her diagnosis, Caroline shifted her diet, started a vegan soup club for her friends in Seattle who cooked for her when she was sick. She began writing personal essays regularly about her cancer as it relates to food on her blog called “The Wright Recipes,” as well as on other major online publications including Food52, The Kitchn and Bon Appétit. She wrote a children's book for her sons about her enduring love, entitled “Lasting Love,” published by Rodale Kids (a Random House imprint) in August 2019, and has another children's series about baking by HarperCollins called Little Bakers that was released in Fall 2021.

Manisha Thakor is excited to help you achieve financial freedom. But unlike a lot of so-called financial gurus, she begins in an unexpected place: Your feelings around money.   Manisha believes that finance doesn't have to be complicated-you can unpack your emotional barriers, simplify your life and ultimately pursue your life's purpose using money.  Manisha Thakor, CFA, CFP, is the founder of MoneyZen, a boutique financial wellbeing consultancy. A 25-year veteran of the financial services industry, her work has been featured in: The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, CNN, CNBC, Womens Health and Real Simple. Manisha sits on the board of The National Endowment for Financial Education and has authored two personal finance books for young women. Manisha earned her MBA from Harvard Business School and her BA from Wellesley College. Having worked for 25+ years in the predominantly (white) male financial services industry, Manisha has come to see firsthand how important it is to empower women to achieve financial wellbeing. She ardently believes that money gives women voices and choices. What's your money story? Rather than just diving into your financial history, Manisha wants you to dig deeper into how you feel about money. How did your family discuss finances when you were growing up? What limiting beliefs might you have adopted about scarcity or wealth? The answers to these questions might shed new light on your journey with money as an adult and reveal the secrets to setting yourself financially free. What is financial freedom? To Manisha, financial freedom is all about choices. When you create financial freedom for yourself, you have the ability to explore your interests, protect your investments and avoid toxic situations. It all starts with your money story! Quotes “My mission is to help people fight through the abundance of information to help people arrive at calm, confidence and clarity around their personal finances.” “The biggest tool I have found is your money stories, and your money history. I advise corporate clients to do something called money circles, where you get together around certain topics…mostly to talk about money feelings and what's blocking you. People work through their gunk and are able to actually make decisions.” “Emotional wealth comes down to simplicity, small joys and financial independence.” “Financial independence is the ability to extract myself from any situation that is toxic to me.” “The number one thing I get asked daily is, how can I find trustworthy guidance and advice for my situation?” “Financial health doesn't mean that you're always chasing more, more, more. That gets you into a never-enough mindset.” Links mentioned in this episode: Check out the MoneyZen website: https://moneyzen.com/  Connect with Manisha Thakor on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/manishathakor/  Follow Manisha on Twitter: https://twitter.com/ManishaThakor  Manisha references Courtney Carver's 333 method for simplifying for life.

Field Trips are often an immersion, a hands on learning experience.  In this episode Heidi interviews Erin Austen Abbott to cultivate backyard family adventures sharing planning tips for family field trips.  She also peel back the layers of untourism by describing what makes a place like Mississippi so unique and filled with hidden gems, yet rarely on our travel list.   Website for this episode: https://ordinarysherpa.com/088 Will you leave Written Review on Apple Podcasts:  https://ordinarysherpa.com/review/ Beginner's Guide to Untourism: https://ordinarysherpa.com/untourism/ Our guest is a writer, an early childhood educator, and a former traveling nanny.  She has been featured in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Real Simple, Mother Mag, and more.  She published her second book in April of 2020 called Family Field Trip. Her blog, Field Trip works to teach parents and children about design, food, art, and culture, from home and beyond.  Erin Austen Abbott lives in Water Valley, Mississippi with her husband, son, and four animals.  Key Takeaways Mississippi is unlikely on anyone's bucket list, but it would be an ideal untourist destination due to the many hidden gems.  As William Faulkner once said, “to understand the world, you must first understand a place like Mississippi. I'm not sure if any of you have ever been to the Mississippi Delta, but once you set foot on its soil, it seeps into your blood and changes the way in which your eyes look out at the world.” To give you a hint of the hidden gems, the amount of good food at gas stations is unlike anywhere Erin has ever traveled.  There are trails specific to music, literary trails, even a tamale trail.  When you begin to look at the area with a different lens there are virtually adventures and hidden gems abound. The Blues trail is not only a great adventure, it's a historical and cultural lesson.  Erin created a spotify playlist to accompany each blue sign to help connect the facts to an experience.  The spotify playlist is something they can come back to over and over to retain and remember what they learned and experienced on the blues trail.   Erin's second book, Family Field Trip was inspired many years ago during her solo travel days.  She was standing in line for a remarkable location in France watching several kids complaining and oblivious to the amazing opportunities surrounding them.  “I need to write a book about all the things they could do” That was the spark for the book and it never left.  Even while working on her first book the family field trip book lingered waiting for her to bring it to life.  What sparks linger inside of you?  What books do you need to write? Public art and murals are an indicator of what the area is going through.  Many times the art reflects the aspect the community is proud of and the challenges they have worked through.   A great untourist experience is to go to a farmers market, grocery store, or locally owned restaurant and seek out the food you have never seen, or tried before.  Purchase it and explore what makes that food unique.  When you explore from a curious standpoint you also have questions to ask the local people and learn what makes that location unique.   In many ways, as we age we run out of first time experiences - which might be the appeal of travel.  If we are intentional to notice nature is constantly changing around us.  Things like a season study to watch for different birds or how the same place changes over time are great microadventures.   One way Erin likes to acclimate to a new community is to take public transit on a simple out and back experience.  Study what's outside the windows, listen to the local chatter and glean insights from the commuter culture that surrounds you.  You'll be able to be a simple passenger without an itinerary.   One of the ways Erin and her family like to connect with kids and families is by ordering good takeout and heading to a local park or playground.  If you choose one near a school they are usually embedded in the community and will attract local people.   Erin gave SO MANY tips on how to plan for untourist or family field trips.  One of her favorites is searching for geotags and then following the rabbit hole to discovery.  For example when you are in Instagram and you click on the geotag it takes you to a map, which then she adds to a guide in Apple Maps.  Getting in the habit of adding geotags to maps at the moment makes planning for the long term much easier.  To Follow or connect with Erin  Website: erinaustenabbott.com Email: erinaustenabbott@gmail.com Book: Family Field Trip: Explore Art, Food, Music, and Nature with Kids  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/fieldtripblog Instagram: @erinaustenabbott Other:  https://www.pinterest.com/erinaustenabbott

Loretta Graziano Breuning, Ph.D. is the author of Habits of a Happy Brain: Retrain Your Brain to Boost Your Serotonin, Dopamine, Oxytocin, and Endorphin Levels. She founded the Inner Mammal Institute to help people build new neural pathways to turn on their happy chemicals in new ways. (www.InnerMammalInstitute.org) As a Professor of Management at California State University, and a mom, Loretta was not convinced by prevailing theories of human motivation. While researching alternatives, she uncovered the brain chemistry we share with animals. She learned that each happy chemical evolved to motivate a specific survival behavior, not to make you feel good all the time for no reason. Then everything made sense, and she began creating resources to spread this knowledge: books, videos, blogs, podcasts, infographics, slide shows, social media, and a training program. Loretta's work has helped thousands of people "make peace with the animal inside." And she still marvels every day at the overlap between a wildlife documentary and the lyrics to a love song. Dr. Breuning's work has been translated into Spanish, Russian, Chinese, Arabic, French, Turkish, and German. She has been quoted in Forbes, NPR, the Wall St. Journal, Fox, Time, NBC, Psychology Today, Cosmopolitan, Real Simple, and Psychologies. Her podcast is "The Happy Brain," and she's been a guest on many podcasts, including Almost 30, James Altucher, Brainfluence, Recovery Unscripted, Fat Burning Man, Humans 2.0, and Yogabody.

Yes, this all starts with getting enough sleep at the end of the day, and taking small steps towards getting more. If you are highly anxious, sad, depressed, stressed, etc. ask yourself, “When was the last time I got a sound 8+ hours of sleep?”Develop a morning routine. Get fresh air, journal, sit in silence, meditate, whatever. The point is to devote enough time for setting your day's intentions on the right track. And, in fact, did you know that this is also one of my constipation hacks? Watch it HERE for exactly how I do it.Adequate mineral support. This one Kerrie provided in detail during our conversation. Minerals: calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, chloride, magnesium, iron, zinc, iodine, sulfur, cobalt, copper, fluoride, manganese, and selenium.Circadian rhythm support. Kerrie also provided this one, which goes along with other simple acts on this list, but she says” 20-30 grams of protein in the morning, natural, bright morning light, and proper sleep hygiene.”Get regular exercise. This is, in my opinion, one of the very best stress relief activities out there. But do remember that if you are also desperate for healing your gut, you need to make it easy exercise vs. strenuous. You don't need intense workouts in order to reap the benefits of exercise for overall health.Tap into emotional needs. Kerrie mentions that one root cause of anxiety is unprocessed emotional needs and neglecting these basic needs.Deep breaths. Breathing is a basic human need. And yet, how often do you find yourself not breathing? HERE is a very simple breathing exercise that you can implement today.Learn a new skill. Find something new to enjoy for overall better health. There are a million things to choose from in our leisure time; you just have to find something for you. HERE are 21 ideas.Self care journal. I swear by journaling for every last thing we can do to increase our health and happiness. More on this below.Create personal goals. There is nothing quite like believing in yourself. YOU are your own best friend and there is no one in the world who can take better care of you than you. So create some personal goals for yourself based on any specific needs. These can include different things like: a) Read three personal development books in the next 6 months. b) Walk 1 mile, 3 days per week. c) Write 100 words in a journal every single day for 30 days.Get off of social media. Seriously. Get. off. of. social media. If you can't live without it, then at least create some guidelines for yourself around your online habits. i.e. read a blog post that will provide me value, “scroll” for 20 minutes or less each day, connect with awesome online community groups who provide productive ways for healing my gut or healthy habits for overall mental health care.Therapy sessions. Whenever possible, I highly recommend regular visits with a therapist. They can truly change your life and address anything and everything for your own needs in all areas of your life.Self-Care Planner Meets Gut Healing JournalIn case you've never had Healing Bloom from Within, the 90-day gut healing journal, let me share with you why it's called that to begin with because it will give you context for why it's also a self-care planner meets gut healing journal:HEALING REALLY DOES BLOOM FROM WITHIN.WITHOUT PROPERLY PLANTING, WATERING, AND NURTURING THE INSIDE, IT'S HARD TO FLOWER ON THE OUTSIDE.

What We Discuss in this Episode: Karolina shares a little background about what brought her to the point of being a certified alcohol-free life coach and what effect it's had on her life. In her book, Euphoric, Karolina shares how going alcohol-free was the best decision she's ever made. She shares what her "Aha! Moment" was when she realized she needed to reevaluate the role of alcohol in her life How difficult was the transition for you personally? There are a lot of health-conscious people who drink or binge drink. Why isn't alcohol considered as dangerous as other unhealthy behaviors like smoking, overeating, or inactivity? Why is using alcohol a taboo topic in our culture? In addition to sharing her personal experience in feeling, looking, and sleeping better since alcohol, Karolina shares a myriad of researched health benefits. What were some of the most surprising? In addition to the physical health benefits of eliminating alcohol, Karolina speaks to some of the mental health benefits. How has your outlook on life changed and how has it changed for your clients? Why is it so hard—even stressful—to moderate drinking? What effect does the guilt and shame cycle have on a person's self-esteem? Why do you feel your book is so important right now at this current moment in time? How has COVID, and 2020 more generally, changed the playing field? What role do you believe the patriarchy has played in the alcohol industry? How is the relationship of women with alcohol different than men? What are some common mistakes people make when trying to reduce or eliminate alcohol? What can they do to ensure they stick with your eight-week plan? How might you know alcohol is holding you back? Are their signs or feelings that may indicate it is time for a change? Many people believe they can't socialize without alcohol, or that hanging with friends and partners will no longer be fun. But you say socializing without alcohol is like a superpower. Please elaborate. Do you enjoy non-alcoholic beers, wines, or mocktails? What other sober curious trends and activities do you think will increase in the upcoming years?

Susan Straight, author of the novel, Mecca, which Michael Connelly called "a masterpiece," talks with Barbara DeMarco-Barrett about her new novel and how it came to be. Susan Straight was born in Riverside, CA, and still lives there with her family. She's passionate about home, California, the Santa Ana River, the foothills and the deserts, and has been writing about southern California and the inland area for forty years. From her kitchen window, she can see the hospital where she was born, which her three daughters find kind of hilarious and pathetic; most days, she walks her dog Angel beside the Santa Ana River as she has since childhood, and then past the classrooms at Riverside City College, where she wrote her first short story, at 16, which is also kind of hilarious, but hopeful. She has written about the people of California for her new memoir, In the Country of Women, based on women's stories told for five generations to Straight and her daughters, in driveways and trucks, at parks and funerals. She's published that memoir, eight novels, and two books for children. Her short stories and essays have been published everywhere from The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and The Guardian to Alta, The Believer, McSweeneys, Zoetrope, Reader's Digest, Real Simple, and Family Circle.

The secret of being happy is accepting where you are in life and making the most out of every day…. Or is it? Is there a secret to happiness that we can uncover by looking into the chemicals in our brain? We will find this out today. Watch this interview on YouTube here https://youtu.be/6Sb8wAsvwQ8 On the episode we will explore: ✔  A deep dive into the four happy chemicals in our brain. ✔ How to move past old patterns, behaviors and stress response circuits in our brain, for new results. ✔ Healthy ways to increase our happiness neurotransmitters. ✔ Vicious cycles we should all be aware of, and ways to break these cycles. ✔ How to rewire a "low trust" brain and what we can learn from how monkeys build trust in others. Welcome back to The Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning Podcast, where we cover the science-based evidence behind social and emotional learning (for schools) and emotional intelligence training (in the workplace) with tools, ideas and strategies that we can all use for immediate results. I'm Andrea Samadi, and on today's episode #236, we have Loretta Breuning, the Founder of the Inner Mammal Institute,[i] Professor Emerita of Management at California State University and the author of  Habits of a Happy Brain[ii] and Status Games: Why We Play and How to Stop. Her work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Psychology Today, Real Simple and numerous podcasts. Loretta helps people to build their power over their mammalian brain chemistry, reminding us that “happiness comes from chemicals we've inherited from earlier mammals: dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin and endorphin levels. When you know how they work in animals, your ups and downs make sense. Our happy chemicals evolved to reward survival behaviors, not to make us feel good all the time. But you can feel good more often when you understand nature's operating system.” Let's meet Dr. Loretta Breuning and learn together, how to retrain our brain to boost our serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin and endorphin levels, for a happier and healthier life by understanding why these neurotransmitters are important for happiness to occur in the present moment of our lives. Welcome Loretta, thank you for coming on the podcast. We have been focused on our brain as it relates to learning, and when I saw your book, Habits of a Happy Brain I jumped to learn more about it, because who doesn't want to learn more about our brain chemistry, especially when it comes to retraining our brain for happiness. INTRO Q: Can we start with where your interest in this topic began? How did you go from being a University Professor, to writing books about our brain chemistry and connecting us back to our “inner mammal” and how our brain is wired for survival?  Q1: You mentioned something in another interview[iii], that I think is important for us to understand. You said “we are all wired by our early experiences because this is when we have the most neuroplasticity.” What should we all know about how our brains are wired, that makes us all unique, right down to the level of the neurons in our brain? Q1B: So, if we are to dive deeper into this, you know how we all have a trauma response, or when we are stressed, or experiencing overwhelm, we experience either fight (anger/irritability) flight (let's talk about something else and avoid all of this) freeze (unable to move and disassociate), or fawn (where you keep the peace as a people please to avoid conflict)…all of these reactions hard-wired from our early experiences. I'm sure each of us, if asked, could think about which trauma response we use predominately. Once we are aware of our stress response circuit, what do we do with that?  Is it enough to just pay attention to whatever it is that's causing a reaction and notice if it's really a threat to you, or if we can just move beyond it? Q2: When I think about happiness, I don't usually think about what's going on at the brain level (until reading your book).  I'm thinking, I want to move towards this, or I don't. This makes me feel good, or it doesn't. Do more of X, and less of Y. What's behind this feeling of happiness? What 4 chemicals are showing up in the brain, and what should we know about how these 4 brain chemicals work?  (Page 14) Q2B: To intentionally retrain our brain towards more happiness, is this a good formula? “look for the joy=dopamine, beware of masking my pain, it will be temporary (endorphins), look for those I trust (oxytocin) and keep an eye on my pride/desire for social importance with serotonin? Is this enough, or am I missing anything important? (Page 16) 2C: What are healthy ways to increase each neurotransmitter? Q3: How does our brain wire itself early in life, and how difficult is it to break old wiring/habits? Q4: What are some common vicious cycles we should be aware of? What is the solution to getting out of these cycles, or resisting habits that make you feel good in the moment, and then bad later? Q4B: What tools do you have for people who are struggling to break a habit? Q5: In Chapter 2, Meet Your Happy Chemicals, you say that “your dopamine circuits are built from your past experiences” and “that dopamine builds a neural template that helps you find your rewards” (page 36, Habits of a Happy Brain) all built from our life experiences, like the child who discovers a berry patch with their mother, triggering dopamine with the whole experience. What happens to the rush this person feels later in life, (eating berries, or other experiences that have been wired into the brain) and what should we understand about the ups and downs of dopamine? Q5B: How can we translate this understanding into our parenting? Q6: What about endorphin, that “masks pain for a short time” (Page 41) “that is only released if you push past your capacity to the point of distress” and allows you to move forward. We have recently addressed chronic pain[iv], with ways to retrain our brain using mindfulness and meditation, along with other strategies, but endorphin doesn't seem to be a long-term solution to pain management. How does it contribute to our happiness if it's a short-term solution to our pain? Q7: What is the connection between oxytocin and trust? If you were standing in front of someone who just feels off to you for some reason, what happens at your brain level? Is oxytocin ONLY secreted with trust? Q7B: You say that “our oxytocin pathways are built with life experience” (page 48) so would it make sense that if we have a hard time trusting in our past experiences that these neural pathways would lean towards mistrust with others until we had rewired a new pathway of trust? Q7C: How would you rewire a “low-trust' pattern in our brain? Q8: How can we recognize when serotonin is flowing in our brain as we seek that feeling of being important or being respected, and how do our past serotonin experiences create our present expectations?   Q9: What is your 45-day plan to rewire our brain towards happiness? How can we take all of this and make it applicable? Q10: Why does our brain create unhappiness? What's important with experiencing the contrast of happiness and it's opposite? Q11: Is there anything important that I have missed? Final Thoughts: Thank you Dr. Breuning for sharing your Habits of a Happy Brain and all of your research on this podcast.

Two short years later we planted roots as a brick and mortar store in beautiful Door County, WI. Vicki (or ‘V' as everyone calls her) is the artist behind our unique flower art made completely from Mother Nature. While V creates her art, Brooke manages most other aspects of the business, and we have a lot of help from talented people in between! Fun fact: the name Sister Golden comes from the America song Sister Golden Hair. The title of that song was the inspiration behind a nickname Brooke's dad gave her when she was little, and the name just stuck.
