Episode 215: Understanding the Subconscious Mind (And How It Can Change Your Life)

Your subconscious mind controls your beliefs, values, emotions, personality, and essentially drives your reality. We act out what we subconsciously believe we are worthy of, and most of our subconscious beliefs are programmed by other people in childhood. But here's the kicker, we can reprogram them. In today’s episode, Karolina is going to demystify the subconscious mind so you can understand the incredible power of it, and how it's going to change your life. We don’t have a perfectly programmed subconscious. And it’s nobody’s fault.

Episode 203: Cast Your Vision for the New Year and Claim Your New Identity

As 2023 draws to a close, it’s the perfect time of year for reinvention - to shed old identities and limiting beliefs to create a bold new vision for yourself in 2024 - spiritually, physically, emotionally, and intellectually.  Whether you dream of becoming a morning person, an author, a parent, or to build a successful business without alcohol, these are all critical shifts in your identity and this episode will inspire you to make it happen! Karolina shares an inside peek into the Robert Dilts Pyramid, which is a fascinating model for creating transformation and change in your life.

What If You Don’t Achieve Your 2023 Goals?

This episode is a heart-to-heart for big dreamers and goal-setters. Beautiful, your dreams are still worth it, even if you didn’t achieve them in the timeframe you expected. What were your goals for 2023? Did you meet them? Sometimes we overestimate what we can do in a year, but we can also underestimate how long a goal will actually take. Today’s empowering conversation with Karolina will fuel you to create more space and inspiration for your goals as you move into the new year. We cover managing expectations, “timeline goals”, celebrating our wins along the way, and why we need to be unrealistic about our dreams sometimes! You’ll also hear a few examples of how Karolina processes goals not met in her own life and uses setbacks as stepping stones for future success.   IN THIS EPISODE: Looking at the effort BEHIND the goal: what were the books read? The programs joined? Did you do anything differently this year?  How to use lessons from the previous year to do things differently in the next – for example, getting more support or creating more time for a goal  How we often underestimate how long things take (our goals are not defined by how quickly we achieve them!) and why sometimes, it’s actually better when things take longer Removing the attachment of self-worth to the outcome and focusing instead on what we did and the work we put in The importance of ENJOYING ourselves as we work toward our goal, because happiness is not getting to the goal – it’s who we grow into during the process!   LINKS/RESOURCES MENTIONED Get paid to help others make alcohol insignificant and fulfill their greater purpose.

Episode 187: Following Our Passions, Traveling the World, and How I’m Living the Life I Used to Dream Of

When we remove alcohol, there’s more room for passion. Not necessarily romantic passion – though that’s amazing too – but passion for what you do. If you don’t feel passion for what you do, do you believe there’s a reality in which you WOULD feel passion for what you do? Today, Karolina offers an update on what’s been happening behind the scenes of this podcast, from travels all over the world to empowering women through coaching and mastermind retreats. She used to work in a cubicle, wishing for the opportunity to travel and to have more autonomy in her day-to-day life – and now, she has both. Going alcohol-free was the catalyst for her to do some soul-searching and realize what she truly wanted out of life. You can have that too. Keep asking yourself: what do you want out of life?

Episode 183: Here’s Your Permission to Start Your Career Over and Create a Life You Dream Of with Chelsea Turgeon

You can start your career over. The hardest part? Giving yourself permission to do so. So many people have this idea that they’re in too deep. They’ve invested too much time or schooling into something, and that it’s too late to start over. In this episode, Karolina talks with Chelsea Turgeon about how she pivoted from one of those professions most never pivot from – (a doctor!) – to start her own 6-figure business that allows her to travel the world. Chelsea has been on the show before, but Karolina is bringing her back to share her personal journey. Even more fun is this episode was recorded in Norway where they’re traveling together! Chelsea talks about the sunk-cost fallacy, the future of the job industry, and the power of salvaging - not the past, but the future.  Beautiful, there are so many “shoulds” in this life. You should have a white picket fence. You should have alcohol, because that’s what normal adults drink. You should be employed by a “stable” employer. But what’s more secure than owning your own financial independence?

Your body is a divine vessel and the more you love yourself, the better you will feel!

It’s about optimal energy balance, gut balance, hormones, being free of cravings, your mental health feeling at ease, and not feeling guilty after you have a piece of cake How to mend your past traumas and heal your inner child (and why Amber recommends the Emotional Freedom Technique, or “tapping” to clear out those emotions) Amber shares what she eats in a typical day, including her favorite smoothie hack and why a vegan diet didn’t work for her LINKS/RESOURCES MENTIONED  Connect with Amber on her website where you can take her Emotional Eating Quiz.

Episode 149: Evolving Your Identity

Today, Karolina is breaking down the importance of evolving our identity when it comes to ditching alcohol. To become a non-drinker, we have to fully and completely claim that identity. Hear about the powerful Hierarchy of Change, the shifting identities we form as children and into adolescence, and why we need to get outside of our comfort zones to experience an evolution and transformation beyond our wildest dreams. Karolina never thought of herself as an entrepreneur or an online coach. She never believed she would be an author one day either. But she evolved her identity into all of those things and more. Now, the idea of drinking just isn’t even an option anymore because alcohol is meaningless.  If you're getting a nudge from the universe or your intuition that it’s time to change, listen to it! Everyone deserves to see how they feel without alcohol in their life. This episode is brought to you by Wild AF.

Episode 64: The Power of Your Subconscious Beliefs

Your results come down to the subconscious beliefs that you may not even KNOW YOU HAVE. What the heck are subconscious beliefs? These are stories and rules you’ve picked up over your lifetime that you believe to be true, but are not necessarily grounded in any truth. They keep you stuck in roles, behaviors, and patterns that might not be serving your highest self. Your relationship with alcohol is governed by decades of subconscious beliefs and conditioning from society. Beliefs that aren’t even scientifically true. Beliefs that are incredibly disempowering and limit who you are. In today’s episode, I debunk a few common beliefs: alcohol helps me sleep . . . and a drink makes me more confident. How about the belief non-drinkers are boring? Something passed down in the American consciousness for centuries! In Become Euphoric, students get the step-by-step process to uncover every subconscious belief they have around alcohol and ruthlessly examine them for truth and debunk them. I also share a belief that kept me stuck about becoming an entrepreneur and coach. So once you learn this process, it serves you in life for any belief that’s holding you back. Ready to change your subconscious beliefs? Join us in Become Euphoric, an 8-week program to take a break from alcohol, debunk the subconscious beliefs that don’t serve you, and build up your dream life instead.

Episode 61: How to Manage Your Emotions

You might recall that alcohol was used as an anesthetic for surgeries just as little as a hundred years ago.  When it comes to alcohol, we attribute so many false beliefs to a drink. Beliefs like, a drink will make me feel more relaxed, or outgoing, or fun (all limiting beliefs that take away your power!) But if there’s one thing alcohol does well, IT NUMBS. Your thoughts, emotions, and feelings.  And when you take a break, it’s normal to feel a little raw with all the unprocessed emotions and feelings that are coming up to be healed. But your emotions are there for a reason. They are your greatest teacher on how to make shifts in your life to create more joy. Drinking over them ensures you never really get to figure out what you really want or need. You can’t numb the bad without also numbing the good.  Learn four healthy ways you can manage your emotions in this episode.  Free course to get started: The 5 Day Restart  Enroll in Become Euphoric

Danielle and Karolina sit down during their staycation to reflect on 2020, both the burdens and the gifts. We realized that this past year helped us strip away the things that didn’t matter and hone in on the things that do. More self-growth, more time with our loved ones, more community-serving. Less perfectionism, less worrying about what other people think, less petty fears.  We also look to 2021 and bringing what matters into the new year. Big audacious goals for the next year, playing big, and reaching for the dreams our souls are calling us toward.  We hope that 2021 is your year to let go of what no longer serves you and step into your fullest potential.  Show Notes:  Free course to get started: The 5 Day Restart  Ready to strip away alcohol and start your dream life?

Episode 35: Uncovering Your Real Gifts with Bri McCorkell

What if alcohol was clouding up your ability to share a magnificent gift with the world? Today I sit down with Bri McCorkell, a life coach and spiritual teacher for moms, who stopped drinking on her path towards a greater awakening. Bri has three children and we talk about how hard motherhood can be and how easy it is to quell that isolation and pain with a drink. But deep down, we are way more powerful than we realize, and there is no true way to know your power and capability without letting go of the thing that makes you play small. Everyone has a gift and a unique ability to make a difference in the world. Yet, deep down, we’re terrified of what we’re really called to do, and so turn to alcohol to cope and numb out. As Bri says, “if the people with the greatest gifts would stop numbing out, the world would be transformed.” Show Notes: Bri McCorkell What’s Your Dream Life QUIZ

Episode 28: Soberminded Faith with Jenn Kautsch

Jenn Kautsch’s story is fascinating. Unlike many of us, Jenn didn’t drink in her teenage years or 20s. In fact, she didn’t really pick up drinking until she was a mom and well into her career in her mid-30s. Her drinking mirrors a phenomenon in history—consumption levels were lower for women in the 80s and 90s and then starkly rose in the 2000s as the drinking culture changed. Fifteen years later, she feels stuck in the American rat race, drink, hangover, repeat. Even though she eats healthy, works out, and is committed to building her relationship with God, Jenn feels like she is living two different lives. Until everything changed when she focused on becoming sober-minded. Listen in to learn how to resolve incongruency in your life, how faith can strengthen your why, and why being present and aware with the right tools can change your life.

Uhhh, not again. Danielle and I explore why alcohol ruins sleep so much, from the 4 a.m. wakeup calls to even the benign drink or two that ruins the quality of your sleep and leaves you pressing snooze.

Episode 21: Coming Out Sober

Sober living is a best kept secret and opens the doors to so much happiness, intentionality, and grace in your life. But with so much stigma and preconceived assumptions, not drinking alcohol in our society is rare and questionable. It can be hard to tell people about a positive life change without well-meaning individuals drilling into the negative. Today Danielle and Karolina explore their best strategies for telling family, friends and even acquaintances that they’ve quit drinking and how to take the power back of such a life affirming lifestyle change. Having a complicated relationship with booze is normal. Quitting drinking and living your best life? That sets you apart as a rockstar, not a walking stigma.

Danielle and Karolina talk about all the things they are excited for during the summer--movies in the park, camping, trips, and pool days--and all the ways summer is so much better alcohol-free. Without a depressant in our systems, we feel young again and capture the same spirit of summer we used to feel as children. Forget everything the clever marketing ads want you to believe, that summer equals rosé on the patio and beers at the barbecue. It all sounds romantic but we know it's not. It's an illusion. Because how does it always play out? Day drinking always made us feel gross, bloated and never knowing which way the night would play out. Would we go to bed early because we have headaches or continue the party and wake up feeling ashamed and regretful? Turn your assumptions on their heads because summer is the most fun time to be sober. This is the life of doing more, not less.

Episode 19: Gray-Area Drinking

So what the heck is gray-area drinking and what does it mean to go alcohol-free today? More and more people are quitting not because they have a “drinking problem” but because they have a problem with drinking. Gray-area drinking is the space between the extremes, between a totally healthy and moderate relationship to alcohol (you know, like no more than one drink per day), and the rock-bottom handle-of-vodka kind of drinking we associate with “alcoholism.” It’s the space that most drinkers live in and it can be pretty confusing. A lot of gray-area drinkers are pretty keen on living a healthy and active lifestyle. Their drinking is pretty normal for their social circle. They drink at appropriate times, and may not exude the classical symptoms of addiction. But that doesn’t mean that alcohol is serving them and making them feel fulfilled. Why do former gray-area drinkers become 1000% happier going sober? When you challenge yourself to go beyond your comfort zone, you discover what really makes you happy and align your life to more joy, freedom, and creativity.

I am beyond thrilled to have this guest on the Euphoric podcast. Not only is Andy Ramage my hero, he was one of the key people who shifted how I viewed alcohol and allowed me to see how limitless life can be without it. Andy is the co-founder of One Year No Beer, a global movement to transform people’s relationships with alcohol by taking a break from drinking and discovering how incredible life is without it. Andy takes things to the next level and optimizes his life for peak performance. He proves that quitting alcohol can make you healthier, happier, more motivated and productive and let’s you go for all your dreams (seems like we have a similar goal). Case in point, he’s written two books, one called the 28 Day Alcohol-Free Challenge and another one on motivation coming soon, gotten a Master’s degree in positive psychology, started a business that has helped over 25,000 people, and is actively challenging the status quo that we have to drink to fit in on TV, popular podcasts and TEDx. Tune in to our conversation to learn more about his story, how he became an expert on behavioral change, what his morning routine looks like, and the top books to read to change your life.

Social media is THE place to find a community of sober folks—it’s literally how Euphoric the Podcast was born and shared. But Danielle and Karolina suspect that constantly checking your phone for new updates is pretty similar to the same dopamine manipulation that goes on with drinking. It’s not easy to sit with your thoughts and engage with the people around you, and we constantly want to reach for things outside of us to distract us. But it is fulfilling. And Euphoric is all about incorporating more of what makes you happy and less of the stuff that drains you. In today’s episode, learn what boundaries around social media and technology the hosts set up to feel more productive and present, why Karolina won’t check her phone in the morning or evening, and why there’s nothing worse than scrolling your phone while watching TV.

Episode 11: Losing the Weight

This episode is a whodunnit - who made me gain all this weight?! Here's a clue: it was alcohol, in the kitchen, with the wine glass. Danielle and Karolina delve a little deeper into body image, weight loss/gain journeys, dieting and all the other fun things that float to the surface when you take alcohol out of the equation. Listen in as Karolina talks about going from "ballerina" to "bloated walrus" and Danielle discusses her journey with disordered eating and fad diets, and hear what it was like for them to finally realize alcohol was the main calorie culprit all along! Only to find acceptance and realized health without it.

Episode 10: Exercise

Danielle and I talk about the role of exercise in our alcohol-free lives. In the past, working out was something we felt we "should" do and a way we subconsciously offset our drinking. Now instead of "shoulding" ourselves, we gravitate towards exercise because it brings mental clarity and helps build our confidence in reaching other goals. Listening to our bodies and doing what feels natural surprisingly led us to run a half marathon and do early morning high intensity workout classes, amidst gentler activities like walking, yoga, and hikes.   Show notes: Danielle's blog: https://morningsoda.wordpress.com/ Karolina's blog www.euphoricaf.com Follow us: www.instagram.com/euphoric.af www.instagram.com/sandiegorecoveringwomen/

Episode 7: Turning One

What's it like to celebrate your one-year soberversary? Danielle kicks off this episode with her reflections on turning one and intentions for the year ahead, with Karolina's soberversary quickly approaching. Instead of avoiding things that are hard, we embrace the challenge. When your mind isn't trained to look for instant gratification and short-lived rewards (booze), it actually reaches for higher goals and looks for long-term contentment. You discover who you truly are and what you actually like. We were joined by Danielle's dogs, Heidi and Murphy, to celebrate the festivities!

Karolina and Danielle are so excited to have Dawn Comolly on the podcast this week. Dawn is the creator of Sober Fish, a site that empowers people towards an alcohol-free lifestyle with incredible stories of transformation.

She embarked on a one-year experiment to quit booze and cigarettes and documented her entire journey online. Six months in, she realized she was never going back to hangovers and regret again. We talk about her story, what it's like to go sober in the UK, and her reinvention as a happier and more radiant Dawn.   Show Links: Dawn's website: http://soberfish.co.uk/ Dawn's IG: https://www.instagram.com/soberfishie/

Episode 5: Problem with Labels

Danielle and Karolina discuss the "a" word and why labels can be so problematic. Trying to figure out if their drinking was normal or a serious problem kept both of them stuck. Fear of being labeled distanced their desire to change, afraid that quitting would mark them forever. Everyone should be allowed to make healthy lifestyle choices without fear. Likewise everyone should get the freedom to define themselves how they wish, whether it's alcoholic or not.

Episode 4: Mindset Shifts

Karolina and Danielle discuss the books and resources they used to shift their mindset around drinking, going from a routine habit to seeing absolutely no benefit in alcohol. If alcohol doesn’t make you ultimately happy, you don’t have to drink. Quitting alcohol, or taking a break, doesn’t signal to society that you are defect or have a problem or have to label yourself an alcoholic. You don’t ever have to identify with certain terms or words. Everyone’s path to an alcohol-free lifestyle is unique. It’s allowed to be unique. Your own inner guide will lead you to ultimate success. Whether that be books, meetings, social media groups, etc. Danielle and Karolina discuss what worked for them.

Episode 3: Vacations and Big Events

One of the harder myths around alcohol to debunk is that it's vital to a fun vacation or lively wedding. How often did we say we couldn't take a break, because of this upcoming trip or birthday party? Danielle and Karolina share their paradigm shifts on their first alcohol-free vacations: full of magic, wonder and appreciation that alcohol would have just numbed and dulled.   Show Links: My Morning Soda - Danielle's blog https://morningsoda.wordpress.com/ Euphoric Alcohol-Free - Karolina's blog and mocktail recipes https://www.euphoricaf.com/

Episode 2: Power of Community

Returning from a group brunch, Danielle and Karolina are abuzz after connecting with other women over their alcohol-free journeys. Danielle created a meetup for women who are doing the whole sober thing and wanted a space to meet new friends and connect deeply without the typically mimosa-laden brunch. Community inspires both Danielle and Karolina to reach higher than their self-limiting beliefs and has been so key to their journeys. Discussing the SHE Recovers conference and Nothing Good Can Come From This book club events, they both find that connecting with others is vital to euphoric living.   Show Links: San Diego Recovering Women's Social Club https://www.meetup.com/SDRWSC/ Euphoric Alcohol-Free - Karolina's blog and mocktail recipes https://www.euphoricaf.com/ My Morning Soda - Danielle's blog https://morningsoda.wordpress.com/ She Recovers https://sherecovers.co/
