Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I wanted to share some thoughts on how to lean into the story that you don’t want to share. The story you don’t want to share has tremendous power over you.  Here are some thoughts on how to shift that.  You might be thinking it is behind me, I can move on, it is in my past, yet if some part of you is connected to the past in that way then it is energy that is not being used to create your future.  In this episode, we discuss:  1) When you think of a story that you don’t want to share, it creates a shield of shame that shuts you down, it feeds into...

715 | Emotions Only Last for 90 Seconds show art 715 | Emotions Only Last for 90 Seconds

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I wanted to share a concept that you only feel your emotions for 90 seconds.   Harvard brain scientist Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor explains “When a person reacts to something in their environment, there's a 90-second chemical process that happens in the body; after that, any remaining emotional response is just the person choosing to stay in that emotional loop. In this episode, we discuss:  1) The 90-second rule states that the physiological response, the chemical rush behind our emotions, dissipates after about 90 seconds. If we still feel the rush after that, or...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I wanted to share a personal story and a shift that helps me when I am feeling stuck in the struggle or stuck in the victim mindset.

Through the value of struggle, we are often forced to adapt and find ways to overcome them. By embracing struggle (or at least what you learned from it) and turning it into opportunities for growth, you can build resilience, improve...

In this episode, I wanted to share a message from an experience I recently went through as I started yoga therapy during the therapy I recognized how relatable it is that our body holds onto trauma to protect us, much like our subconscious mind holds onto the memories of pain to protect us and keep us safe.

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I wanted to share a question to ask if it is time to audit yourself.  If things are not working in the direction that you want, or it is a point of frustration, or your demands are high, then maybe it is time for you to do an audit on yourself, specifically on your time and energy. These two factors will change how you show up, the energy you bring into your day and how you navigate your day.  By tracking and reviewing your daily activities, you can identify how much time you spend on each and see if this actually aligns with your goals. In this episode, we...

Through his work and his own lived experience, Erik is upending the front end of the mental health space and building a bridge between those who seek resources and those who provide both help and hope. Each week on his podcast, he tackles different mental health topics through honest and relatable "kitchen table" conversations with real people who are helping to shatter mental health stigmas and find their voices. He aims to normalize discussions around mental health topics and remind his audience they are not alone, there is strength in community and "it's perfectly ok to not always be ok."

In 2011, Erik traded in a successful career as a NYC finance executive when he moved to Colorado with his wife and two cats. Erik spent twelve winters as a ski instructor for the Aspen Skiing Company before retiring in the Spring of 2023.

Born and raised in New England, Erik earned his MBA from the NYU Stern School of Business and his BA in Economics from Brandeis University. He lives in Colorado with his wife Amy and two cats, Lincoln and Taylor.

In this episode, we discuss:

1) Erik’s story, what it means to move from Survivor to Thriver, how he hid his story from everyone and what it was like to be able to learn how to share it and feel the release of the hold of his story on his life.

2) Erik shared his equilateral triangle of healing and how it needs all 3 components of Western and Eastern medicine and the component of nature and if one of the ends of the triangle collapses it all crashes.
