Are you over 40 and sick and tired of feeling miserable in your skin? Have you tried every single diet on the planet and nothing seems to work? Well, if you answered yes to any of these, you’re in the right place.

At 41, Amber found herself as a divorced single mom searching to find herself and her passion. She realized her purpose is to help women with some of the same struggles she suffered with for most of her life: yoyo dieting, hating her body, lacking confidence, and the overwhelming feeling that she would never love what she saw in the mirror. Until all that changed… she drew a line on the sand and said "yes" to herself. She ditched all the dieting, started to heal her body from the inside out, and learned to love herself again.

In this podcast, you’ll get solutions that actually work, straight-to-the-point advice, lots of compassion, and support from a coach who actually gives a damn. Are you ready, mama?!

    TWR 104: Normalizing the Aging Process with Douglas Mapp, Dr. Philippe Douyon, and Stacy Busby

    TWR 104: Normalizing the Aging Process with Douglas Mapp, Dr. Philippe Douyon, and Stacy Busby

    According to a research study, 78% of women experience brain fog in the workplace during menopause. This is the catalyst for the opening discussion on whether or not there should be accommodations provided for women experiencing menopause in the workforce. Where is the balance between special exceptions and education for women who are transitioning through major seasons in life? Douglas, Dr. Philippe, and Stacey each bring different perspectives to the table and discuss the major shifts and changes that need to be made in our society in regard to the way we work before this can be addressed.
    Bringing attention to the natural aging process, today’s guests dissect the different things both women and men deal with and how we can better understand these changes. Women experiencing perimenopause and menopause are not the only ones! Men are experiencing changes in their life as well due to low testosterone from the aging process. They discuss the need for awareness on both sides of the fence within the workplace specifically.
    Later, Amber explores with Stacey the topic of women over 40 and the opportunity they have to define and redefine who they are (this includes men!). Up until this point, most women are wondering, “what should I be doing?”. However, once hitting 40, the question changes to “what do I really want? What brings me joy?”. Stacey encourages women 40 and over to strive for being in their best shape mentally and physically, instead of accepting the idea they’re an old lady at age 40. Dr. Philippe and Doug further the conversation by bringing a male perspective as well as professional and highlight the importance of truly taking care of health and wellness in the years before and during menopause.
    Today’s episode is full of insight from different perspectives to help shift your view on work-life balance, health and wellness, nutrition, the differences in men’s and women’s aging process, and body image. If you’ve been wanting to grow your knowledge on the aging process, the mind-body connection, or become more in tune with your stage in aging, then you won’t want to miss this discussion!
    Key Highlights
    Menopause and pregnancy in the workplace Women and men over 40 age differently, but there are some similarities to look into Embracing the aging process and understanding how to choose your health over the rat race our culture sells as “success” Episode resources:

    TWR 103: Getting to the Root of Emotional Eating

    TWR 103: Getting to the Root of Emotional Eating

    Today Amber discusses something that plagues so many women over 40, and that is emotional eating. She breaks down the two most common reasons why women have a hard time staying consistent with their nutrition. The first is that you may have a problem with falling off the wagon time and time again. You can’t stay consistent when you get so caught up in staying perfect and adhering to unrealistic rules. This sets you up for failure because diets were never meant for the long term! The second is fixating on nutrition and fitness. This doesn’t mean forgetting those things, but doing nothing to change habits, emotions, changing limiting beliefs, etc., won’t help you to maintain who you want to become. When there’s no foundation to maintain the goals you’ve reached, and life gets in the way, you fall right back off the wagon again.
    Amber focuses on emotional eating and what it looks like and the reasons behind it. Foods can be comforting and can be associated with fond memories. She goes on to explain that there are different levels of emotional eating and some can be ok at times while others can have a major negative impact on the body. More important than the frequency or the amount of eating, ask yourself what the intention is behind the emotional eating?
    Amber shares her tips to begin implementing change into your eating habits and get in the right direction. Look at the origin story. Where did this come from? Can I understand it enough to forgive myself? Being aware and forgiving yourself for your mistakes is crucial to progress. Second, discern whether you are emotionally eating or if you are actually hungry. Before reaching for an unhealthy snack, take the “hunger” out of it and eat a healthy snack so you can evaluate your emotions. Lastly, use simple coping mechanisms such as breathing, meditation, friends to call or talk to, playlists of songs that pump you up, etc. Tune in for more on these tips on how to take control of your eating habits!
    Key Highlights:
    Emotional eating when you aren’t actually hungry The importance of finding the intention behind emotional eating No diets will work because they don’t address the main issue at hand Episode resources:

    TWR 102: Improve Your Sleep Quality To Improve Your Health with Julian Jagtenberg

    TWR 102: Improve Your Sleep Quality To Improve Your Health with Julian Jagtenberg

    Sleep is KING! As we age and our hormones shift, sleep is something that can suffer. There are lots of quick fixes, but in the long-term, they aren’t a sustainable solution. Today’s guest, Julien Jagtenberg is sharing some killer and innovative technology that can help improve your sleep through breath. He also brings us tips and tricks to help lead you to better sleep quality.
    Drawing inspiration from his own mother’s battle with sleep deprivation, Julian wanted to find a natural solution for her. This is how he found the power of breathing to help his mom’s sleep quality and many others with their sleep deprivation.
    Julian delves into how sleep is the key to health. Many of the health issues we see today are due to lack of sleep and poor sleep quality. We tend to obsess over exercise, weight loss, and many people struggle with mental health and it can all be tied to lack of sleep. However, we can build our health up and use the best medicine to heal our bodies, and that is good quality sleep.
    Why do the latest and greatest sleep gadgets not work? Well, that’s because restlessness (stress, and anxiety) is the root cause of most sleep issues. Julian read about the effects of holding a baby on your chest and the subconscious mimicking of the breathing pattern of the baby and how it can help calm the nervous system. This is how his concept of the breath being the key component of his development of somnox. Many of the trackers we use at home are not always accurate and just confirm and reinforce our poor sleep quality and this doesn’t help. In fact, it can worsen sleep deprivation from more stress and anxiety. These trackers don’t help us solve the problem of poor sleep quality!
    According to Julian, the better way and the more holistic approach to measure your sleep hygiene is going to be asking yourself how you feel when you wake up in the morning. It’s time to look at what we can do to make ourselves feel better with tangible tools. That means making sure to establish a sleep ritual (going into sleep mode), using breath-work exercises, writing thoughts down and getting them on paper before going to sleep. Somnox can assist in the breathwork piece of your sleep ritual and can help you improve your overall health. 
    Key Highlights
    How Somnox was born from Julian’s mother’s own sleep deprivation Many of the health issues plaguing the US can be caused by poor sleep quality The ineffectiveness of sleep trackers and why they don’t offer solutions Melatonin and the dangers of taking these supplements The misleading idea that alcohol can help you go to sleep faster Somnox and how it works by utilizing breathwork that can support good sleep Episode resources:

    TWR 100: How to Build Your Own Zen Space with James Stanley

    TWR 100: How to Build Your Own Zen Space with James Stanley

     


    In this episode, Amber’s guest is the first Architectural Designer to be on The Wellness Revolution podcast! James Stanley brings a unique perspective to his clients through his weaving of spirituality and Zen into his work. Amber’s discussion with James begins with his childhood and growing up in southern California watching his mother expand her business into an empire. As a child and an adolescent, James was fascinated by many different religions. As he entered his 20s, he helped his mother in her business but felt a longing for many years to connect to a higher power. He moved from California to Miami where he encountered a life-changing moment and began studying Egyptian Kabbalah.
    With his degrees in Engineering, as well as Interior and Architectural Design, James left Miami and headed to New York City. He started his design career through an agency in 2000. After working for an event company for five years, James decided to open James Stanley Designs. He connected with his first client through a friend and designed his first project. James believes it was through this first client who let him express himself that led to him building his own business.
    James and Amber continue to deep-dive into the meaning of Zen and how to find internal peace and happiness in life. They discuss how to hold on loosely to material things and be aware of that attachment in order to be content with your life’s path. Their conversation goes on to connect these principles to creating space in the home for a Zen room or space and how to do this in a practical and budget-friendly way. Amber goes on to discuss with James about meditation and how to connect it to creating a room conducive to that practice. They also delve into the difference between thoughts and meditation and how to grow in deciphering between the two. James and Amber’s personal experiences and backgrounds in meditation lead them to talk about some of the obstacles that can come up during the journey into meditation.
    Tune in to hear more of James’ practical advice on how to create a Zen space that is based on your own unique style and tastes, from music and scents to colors and textures.
    Key Highlights
    James discusses his background and how it brought him to begin an architectural design company based on his childhood helping his mother in her business Zen and what it means for your home Not getting caught up in the distractions in life Recognizing a thought for just a thought Choosing to feel a certain way Meditation and how it is a journey Practical tips for creating a Zen space in your own home Finding things you love as inspiration for your space Specific budget-friendly ideas for items to design your space Episode Resources:

    TWR 099: How to Break Up with the Scale

    TWR 099: How to Break Up with the Scale

    In this episode, Amber shares great tips on how to shift your mindset and finally break up with the scale and not let the 3-digit number dictate how you will feel for the rest of the day. It’s really interesting how the number on the scale can impact the emotional estate of those looking for fat loss goals. Suddenly, your weight is no longer data to analyze; it becomes a piece of evidence that you’re not working hard enough, right?
    What most people don’t know, however, is that the number on the scale can be influenced by many and many variables: if you had a good night of sleep, if you had enough water the day before, if you had an intense workout that morning, if you are fasted of had a big meal moments before. All of these factors impact your weight at that specific moment.
    So, why do we feel so ‘emotionally hijacked’ by the scale to the point that it can influence our self-worth and self-image?
    For many years the scale has been a symbol for both fat loss and muscle gain goals. But other aspects – non-scale aspects – can also tell if you are succeeding: your clothes fit differently, you’re looking different in the mirror, people are noticing changes, etc.
    Not to mention the specifics of fat loss vs. weight loss. There’s a thing called body recomposition that can help explain why the number on the scale is not going down (you might be changing fat for muscle mass). Tune in to listen to the whole episode and learn how to quit the scale obsession!
    Key Highlights
    Why do we let the number on the scale dictate our self-worth? During your fat loss goal, it’s more than important to break up with the scale instead of being obsessed about it; For many years traditional medicine has been using the scale to provide data (health markers) for patients. The problem is that the scale has no longer become data and is now a tool for self-sabotage; Once you let the scale go, start celebrating your non-scale victories (there are many of them), and start dissociating your emotion with it, your life improves; Allow yourself to check in with yourself instead of letting an external circumstance (the scale) tell you that; Ask yourself: “Why do these numbers are so important to me?” Episode Resources
