An Interview with Johan Versteegh – Life and Digital Wellness Coach and the co-founder of Social Media Breakup, who knows firsthand about the downsides of screen addiction and how to recover using his "6 Step Formula Series". A few years ago, Johan Versteegh suffered from cell phone and social media addiction. When he realized and accepted the adverse effects on his life, he knew he had to find a way to unhook himself from screens. He knew that he couldn't totally abstain from technology; after all, he worked in the IT industry! Accepting that there was a way to take charge of his screen time rather than feel driven by it, he began to explore ways to first disengage from mindless interaction with his devices and then reengage with them mindfully.                                   As Johan began to heal himself, he realized others were struggling with the same addiction. After gaining clarity about his life purpose, he became a Life and Digital Wellness Coach and eventually created Social Media Breakup. His mission is helping individuals and families recover from phone and social media addiction enabling them to become better versions of themselves.

In this interview, Carol learns how, at a low point in her life, Melissa accidentally discovered mindfulness. She describes how, over a decade ago, with a divorce looming and thousands of miles from home, Melissa attempted to bend herself into a pretzel in her first yoga class. She was sore for a week, but it was just what she needed to guide her through a difficult time in her life.  The yoga experience launched her into what she would later understand to be mindfulness – helping her become more aware of her body, thoughts, and emotions. It also ignited a passion for being present for others through her entrepreneurial pursuits.  As a logo, website, and user experience designer, Melissa has built her business and her reputation on bringing simplicity, clarity, and meaning to each project, all values that emerged from her gentle introduction to mindfulness.  Today, she is the co-founder of Nobody Life with her husband, J. A., and strives to raise her daughter and live each moment with the same level of awareness she first started practicing over a decade ago.

Listen in to see how she rose up out of that challenge by living life in the moment, discovering that when she let go of control, connecting with her children as well as her own inner child, she actually had MORE control. This led her to find a way to bring together her past work experience, her natural talents, what she loves doing and the element of FUN to create Marisa Raymond Coaching. She and Concetta explore the notion that by tapping into our 'inner Mary Poppins and inner child' we can get curious about the world around us.

What's the "best" that could happen? That's the mindset of Jae Hermann and the question she asks whenever she's dealing with situations in her life. It wasn't always that way. Just like many people, Jae focused on what's the "worst" that could happen. As a young woman, she was determined to build a career in her chosen field, strategizing, and planning the details to increase her opportunity for success. That all changed one day after being physically assaulted, which then proceeded to derail her beliefs about her choice in career and nearly ruining her emotionally - leading to a massive identity crisis. It took a while for Jae to find herself. Soon she learned to embrace life with curiosity even when fears and doubts surfaced. This approach has allowed life to unfold, leading her to an incredible career as a marketer and business owner, which laid the groundwork for an international wholesale jewelry design business, running an online magazine, building a media production company, and pursuing an award-winning acting career on stage. There was no big plan. Instead, life blossomed into a series of synchronistic opportunities that she sought when presented. Show Notes Jae believes that everything happens for a reason. Listen in to this episode as she shares her story and how she lives in the present, is grateful for potential and possibility, and how the Law of Attraction works in our lives.

Overcoming or adapting to OCD Life as a series of synchronous events Realizing one's gifts - being self-aware Being realistic and prepared Losing identity Growth - step by step Say "Yes, and" Step into Life Uses of adversity in changing life's course Don't let bad things define who we are or who we're meant to be On being highly sensitive and being an introvert Need for solitude The gift of high sensitivity Self-care = Grateful in the moment Awareness as self-care Gratitude is the key to manifesting Focus on what you truly desire Capture fleeting thoughts by writing them down! Know what you want; write it down. We can be critical of ourselves with our internal self-talk, but we rarely write down the negative thoughts. Tip - come up with 3 to 5 statements of what you want, then write affirmation statements about each one. When faced with a crisis - embrace it.   Final words - The importance of Acceptance and Gratitude Website Instagram Twitter Biography Jae is a storyteller, motivator, creative entrepreneur and brand consultant.
