But she's standing on her soap box teaching the lesson she's had to recently learn: she doesn't have to do anything to prove anything to anybody. No one determines her value. Just her. In this episode, Rea hammers the importance of getting out of your head and into your body, and how to down-regulate your system with one simple decision.

    Ep. 29: Feeling blocked? Do this first! (w/ Lauren Lowrey)

    When life is craaazy or a major setback is put in your path, you have a few options on how you react. You can freak the -eff- out (not advisable). You can decide you're the victim (also, not advisable). OR you can just flow.

    In this shorty Lauren-only episode, the AMPstigator herself shares a life-lesson she's learning in real time: how to flow. Too often we get sidelined by struggle. We give up! In this episode, Lauren encourages you to see setbacks as opportunities to pause, reevaluate and move on.

    She also details when to call in reinforcements in the form of therapists and friends.

    BONUS: Lauren shares how to sign up for a special August event, Mom's Night Out: Parenting to Inspire Purpose with AMPstigator guest and Holistic Life Coach, Clara Belden.

     💥 This episode is for you if 💥- There's zero chill in you- You need Coach Lauren to give you a major pep-talk- You want to hear the inspiration behind this life-lesson- You like being reminded that you need to let go

    [10:43] Why you sometimes have to do the OPPOSITE of what you think you're supposed to do. You want to grip tightly, when really, you need to let go and FLOW.

Insightful and inspiring!

This podcast has really opened my eyes. In listening to the journeys of others, I’m inspired to look deeper into my own journey. Every time Lauren asks a guest a question, I find myself trying to answer it for myself! I take away one or two (or 20!) a-ha moments from every episode, the next episode can never come out soon enough!! Keep them coming, Lauren!!

I love the diverse experiences on this podcast, proving that there is no one single path to finding purpose. The stories were fascinating and I couldn’t stop listening! I am always left feeling motivated and hopeful after listening.
