    Ep 280 Mental Health Awareness Month with Kim Jeffs

    Ep 280 Mental Health Awareness Month with Kim Jeffs

    This is a special conversation I had with Kim Jeffs, Founder, Executive & Somatic Coach of Soma and Soul and Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counseling Supervisor. From Kim: ‘I'm licensed as a mental health counseling supervisor in the State of NC. Additionally, I'm a certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, focused on high-stress physiology. Over two decades, I've explored the connection between the mind and body, obtaining various certifications that enrich my practice. This continuous learning has allowed me to help individuals tap into their potential, both professionally and personally. Despite my professional journey, it's essential to remember that, like everyone, I am human. I understand life's challenges and the importance of connection. I believe that we navigate life more effectively when we're connected and supportive of one another. This philosophy drives me, ensuring that Soma & Soul isn't just a business but a place of genuine support and transformation.’ Kim and I dive into mental health and bring awareness in how to identify if you are struggling with mental health. She also discusses Somatics, which is our bodies, and how our bodies can let us know if we need help processing our feelings/emotions. We also discuss the symptom of over-doing anything that isn’t good for us like over-drinking, over-working, over-eating etc. We highlight the need to get mental health support and that everyone struggles at some point or even regularly in their lives. There is no shame in getting help and just because you think you ‘should be happy’ because of your life circumstances, doesn’t mean that you don’t deserve to find out why you aren’t feeling or living the way you want or think you could. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did and it helps you recognize if you need additional support.

    Ep 279 Assumptions

    Ep 279 Assumptions

    My husband and I went to NYC for the weekend and a theme emerged, ASSUMPTIONS. So many assumptions happened for both of us and one involving a complete stranger. Our mind likes to make assumptions to save us energy and time. An assumption is a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof. Tune in and hear 3 completely different stories on assumptions, from brunch to a phone charger to a stranger yelling at us in Central Park. What assumptions are you making about other people that are HURTING YOU? Like, 'they are excluding me.' What assumptions are you making about alcohol that isn't serving you? Like 'if I don't drink, it will be boring.' Assumptions can help you or hurt you. If you find out you were wrong for assuming something, can you learn from this, let it go, or laugh instead of getting angry or blaming your assumption on someone else? I'd love to hear what assumptions you make that you have found out aren't true.

    Ep 278 Mental Health Awareness Month and Alcohol Use

    Ep 278 Mental Health Awareness Month and Alcohol Use

    May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. 

    It affects how we think, feel, and act. 

    It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. 

    Over-drinking is usually a sign that our mental health is in need of some help. 

    Over-drinking is a symptom. For a lot of my clients, it's a symptom of stress, high levels of anxiety, overwhelm, loneliness, grief, big painful life changes or traumatic events like a high conflict divorce or a major medical diagnoses. 

    Using alcohol as a way to cope is a sign that your mental health could use some support. 

    It's not something to be ashamed of or to keep a secret. 

    If you've been struggling with alcohol use and you identify as someone who is using alcohol as a way to cope (or another sign is, finding it very hard to stop automatic behavior and can't identify the cause of your over-drinking) it's time to get help. 

    Tune into this podcast episode and hear the intersections of mental health and over consumption of alcohol.Here's a resource I used in creating this episode:https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/sites/default/files/2022-06/MHF-Alcohol-and-mental-health-guide.pdfAnother resource:SAMHSA’s National Helpline, 1-800-662-HELP (4357) (also known as the Treatment Referral Routing Service), or TTY: 1-800-487-4889 is a confidential, free, 24-hour-a-day, 365-day-a-year, information service, in English and Spanish, for individuals and family members facing mental and/or substance use disorders.

    Ep 277 My Goal for May: Allowing My Discomfort With Other People's Discomfort

    Ep 277 My Goal for May: Allowing My Discomfort With Other People's Discomfort

    What does this even mean?

    Have you ever noticed how uncomfortable you get when you perceive other people feeling some sort of discomfort or negative feelings?

    If you have noticed this and then tried to 'make everyone feel better' or 'try to diffuse' a situation so the peace gets kept or whatever it is, how does this work out for you?

    Does it exhaust you, make you feel anxious, overwhelmed, or edgy? And then what do you do? Drink, eat, scroll, avoid, fight...or cause a bigger issue than what actually existed?

    Well, I happen to have been aware of myself being really uncomfortable and tight and edgy and grippy when I perceive some else's discomfort in a whole bunch of situations.

    And that sucks because when I feel that way, I immediately want to 'make it better' for them and that feels graspy and honestly it's a big energy suck AND it doesn't work.

    DANG IT.

    So that's my work this month. And I invite you to come along with me and choose something that is a big discomfort for you.

    Is it urges for alcohol, snacking at night or something else? What do you have a big discomfort over? The key to being more comfortable in this area is to ALLOW the initial discomfort you feel right now.You have to be willing to go through it for it to feel better. That's the process.

    This episode dives into how to do that and I share a little bit of what I am working on as an example.

    Let's get uncomfortable together, friends!Join Say YES for Drinking Less:https://www.angelamascenik.com/say-yesHire me as your private coach: https://form.typeform.com/to/x8tcz6lmGrab one of the last two spots in the Seattle retreat.

    Ep 276 Do I Have a Problem?

    Ep 276 Do I Have a Problem?

    This episode helps you discover if YOU have a problem with alcohol.

    Most people have an image in their minds about what someone with an alcohol problem looks like.

    And for most of my clients they don't match that description.

    Often people who want to cut back get pushback from their loved ones who don't understand why they are focusing on cutting back when 'they don't understand, you don't do anything bad, or nothing bad is happening from your drinking.'

    Sometimes these external messages confuse our desire to cut back or quit.

    You might then tell yourself, 'I work full-time, take care of the kids, take care of everything, surely I can have a couple glasses of wine at the end of the day!'

    And then you dismiss your own truth.

    This episode dives into this and helps you understand YOUR situation with alcohol better so you can remain clear on what you want and then can clearly communicate to others if you need to.

    If you are struggling and haven't been able to make the changes you want on your own, please get help.

    Ep 275 Navigating Skepticism: What to Do When Loved Ones Dismiss Your Desire to Cut Back

    Ep 275 Navigating Skepticism: What to Do When Loved Ones Dismiss Your Desire to Cut Back

    This episode dives into what to do when someone you care about shares that they don’t think you need to cut back or wishes you wouldn’t cut back or dismisses your desire to quit or cut back.

    Mostly, when people dismiss your desire to cut back it’s just because they don’t want to cut back.

    They don’t want anything to change. So when you say you are going to do something differently, it often will make them look at their own habits around alcohol. And they might unconsciously feel a bit threatened about their own attachment to alcohol.

    What really matters is that YOU acknowledge you want to cut back and that you do something about it.

    And that it’s not black and white. Just because you don’t present like a down and out alcoholic doesn’t mean that your alcohol consumption isn’t a concern to you. 

    If you think you drink too much and it’s been hard to cut back, it needs to be addressed. 

    Don’t let someone else’s opinion deter your desire to cut back. You know if it’s too much and that is what matters.

Thank you

I started listening a week ago. I am on episode 35. I feel like every episode is ment for me. I went though the Christmas holiday without over drinking. Thank you so much for your kind words and advise. All of the things you talk about I deal with almost every day. Thank you for being you and caring.

Finally I’m getting the help I need

I’ve battled over eating and over eating for a very long time. All attempts to make myself feel better. Now I’m learning how to be with my emotions and develop positive behavior. Thank you!
