EP:75 On this weeks episode of Thrive Like a Parent podcast let’s discuss how to recalibrate the nervous system and shift patterns to achieve a state of calm and peace. I hope this will encourage you to practice awareness, recognize your wins, and support your own regulation. The fastest way to regulate the nervous system is not through control, fixing, or creating structure, but by sitting in discomfort and supporting the body's natural regulation process. Recognizing and validating your feelings without shame or judgment is essential for regulating the nervous system. While control, fixing, and creating structure may provide temporary relief, they do not support long-term regulation. Practicing awareness and understanding your triggers can help you respond to unexpected situations with calm and presence. Join me on this week’s episode as I dive deeper into how you can create larger windows of tolerance to stress and discomfort which will allow for longer periods of regulation and a more peaceful state of being.
EP:74 The majority of humans somehow get into the pattern of learning how to regulate themselves on an external basis, which means they rely on everyone and everything else around them to give them permission, as well as allow them to regulate their nervous system. I find that the individuals who are externally regulating, it's as if that human is in a sea of water. And they are waving their hands around with tons of waves and white caps around them, and they are just treading water. And you can't do that forever. But what ends up happening is we're in the middle of the sea begging for a life raft. Externally, the individuals around you are not meant to satiate and take care of your nervous system. Can they support you? You bet. But can they fix and throw you a life raft? Every single time all the time? 24/7? No. And the reason being is that A: It's not realistic. And B, they have their own nervous system to take care of. Go down that rabbit hole and explore all the things that make YOU feel good. AND DECIDE to support yourself. Because what's waiting for you on the other side is such freedom, freedom from resentment and anger from your loved ones. Freedom for holding permission and everyone else's hands for your happiness and your mental health. Freedom from needing to feel worthy from others, and most importantly, regulating through someone else and other things externally. More tips on this week episode of Thrive Like a Parent podcast.

EP:72 On today’s episode of Thrive Like a Parent Podcast… I am so honored to be joined by Kelli Bullard. Kelly is an incredible mama. A young widow. Teacher turned author. We are all struck by tragedy in some way within our life. And at some point, we may need to support a neighbor, a friend, a loved one. And we have no earthly idea what that's going to look like for them, or what they may need. Each individual person definitely needs something different. Join us as we discuss how we had to figure out our own process in grief, Kelly’s new book (Behind My Smily), finding love after tragedy and so much more.
EP:71 Happy 2024!!! As we start ramping up this year, I want to remind you that today is today, we'll see what tomorrow brings. But be proud of yourself just simply for showing up. And trust the process. Whatever you're going through in your life.. Whether it's you having some January blues, whether it's you're feeling some depression, just in life or you've gone through a loss or you're having a hard season of your life, whatever it is, I want you to trust that process. Trust time. Love time. Allow time. Don't force time but instead soak it in. Take one small step to change your life in whatever direction that means for you. Whether it is slowing down, whether it is slightly ramping up, utilize that throttle to make the long lasting impact within your life. #thrivelikeaparent #podcast #newepisode #sensoryregulation #emotionalregulation #mentalhealth #newyearsresolutionsarebullshit #growthovertime #thrive #supportyourbrain #burnout #dysregulatednervoussysstem
EP:70 On this week’s episode of Thrive Like a Parent, I have a very special guest with me, my boyfriend Carter. Throughout this journey, I had to grow and trust the process. It wasn't easy. I had to let my guard down, be vulnerable, and communicate, which is tough, especially after the trauma I've been through. That's why it took me so long to share my current relationship with the world. It's been two years, and it shows the depth of the trauma I had to work through. It's not just about breaking down walls; it's about feeling safe enough to let someone in and building that trust. The process took time, but now I can proudly say I'm in a committed relationship, and it's a testament to the healing and trust we've built together. Although, it was hard.. It’s attainable and so so worth it. You can find a healthy partnership and do life together in a way that feels best in right for you. I hope by us sharing our story with you, you too will find the courage to embark on this journey.
I urge you to slow down and take a look at the world around you that you are creating… Because this is not easy. I don't care if you're a working parent, a stay at home parent, single, solo or divorced.This is hard. It's not only hard to be a parent, but we live in a different world than our parents raised us in and it's okay to accept that and lean into that and give your brain and body all the support it needs. My wish for you is extra rest and extra water. If you're feeling dysregulated get down to essentials. Skip everything else. Food, water, rest. I wish you joy. I wish you peace. I wish you happiness. I wish you support. I wish you love. I wish you the gift of stepping on the brake. #thrivelikeaparent #podcast #holidayseason #truthsaboutholiday #holidaytruths #parenthood #momlife #nervoussystem #dysregulatednervousstystem #thrive #emotionalregulation #mentalhealth #parenting #holidays #joyinparenting
EP: 68 Today I want to remind you the holiday season really truly at its core meant slowing down, resting, rebooting. I want you to focus in on what matters most, which is taking the time to make holiday memories. I guarantee you're already doing enough. So put the garland down. Slow your roll on the extra sides of mashed potatoes and the extra dish you think you need to make this year. Stop over functioning and doing so much for so many when you really don't feel like doing it but you think you need to do it. Start supporting yourself this holiday season and enjoy the time with your family and the ones you love most and most importantly rest, rest, rest. Tune in to this weeks episode of Thrive Like a Parent Podcast for tips and strategies to truly enjoy and be present this holiday season.

Exciting Life Update

Exciting Life Update


EP:66 Hello, and welcome to another episode of Thrive like a parent Podcast. Today, I'm going to just give you a life update. So every now and then I will kind of do this and share with you what's going on in my life. And there are plenty of other podcasts of mine that give you tons and tons of information. But every now and then you crave and ask for a life update from me. And I appreciate your interest. I think I will start with a Hashimotos update, because so many of you are asking for that. Doctors found that I had one tiny, gross, but former parasites, they've decided that I had an overgrowth of Candida. And of course, you know, stress, which of course that comes along with my life, and how much I have on my plate, which I knew that that's a part of Hashimotos. And they put me on basically a three month protocol. And so it took me a lot to figure out what I could eat on a daily basis.  But, I kept saying we've got to do something about this daily routine because like this is clearly not working for my lifestyle.  Please know that number one, in life, you have to do what works for you! I now know that this can be managed.  But it has to be managed in the way that works for me.  I'm so proud of myself because I finally have enough energy to be able to attend to my needs as well as my kids.  It's slow, but I see it coming back and I take all my wins because if I don't then I'll just still feel icky. I will never be the same person I was before Jonathan passed like I will never be the same person. I do believe that if you have have gone through anything huge in your life, lost a spouse, or a divorce or anything like that. I do believe that we don't fully own that it's okay to be someone different than who we were before.  Like, at the end of the day, I'm still broke, but the life experiences have shaped who I am, and who I will be for the rest of my my life, right. The other thing on the life update is, I could not be more excited about this upcoming thrive.  So there are many different ways to work with me, you can work with myself, one on one, you can work with the three individuals who I've trained for over two years that I would absolutely never have on my team or never allow them to see clients if I didn't feel that you were going to get the same result as you would with me.  And so you can work with one of them.  You can work with me one on one basis, or you can do our Thrive group program.  So this year, we only do Thrive twice a year, just FYI, we do it in the beginning of the year and we do it before Thanksgiving, around September (please listen to my podcast to know how Thrive works).So let's talk about what's to come besides thrive.  I have some very, very exciting guests coming on the podcast in the coming year.  So look for that, we are going to be doing a lot more of all that we already are doing.  Because we feel so good with what we're doing.  And it's it's so rewarding.I can't thank you enough for listening and coming along for this crazy ride.  It's the best. It's so much fun.  I love doing this and I love I'm very lucky that I love what I do.  And I love supporting all of you.
EP: 65 Being around our family for the holidays can be so triggering to us. On this week’s episode of Thrive Like a Parent podcast, I want to give you a guideline of how to support yourself through that time. Dysregulation into regulation does not happen overnight. Anxiety into calm does not happen in a blink of an eye. Fight or flight into rest and digest does not happen overnight. It takes time, especially when you've been pounding the pavement all year long. That's the exact reason why I don't want you to start adding more to your plate with your family or taking on the emotional dysregulation of your family during this season. This holiday season, I encourage you to take care of yourself, because I care. I care so much. And I am so grateful to each and every one of you. XOXO, Dr. B #thrivelikeaparentpodcast #newepisode #sensoryregulation #nervoussystemregulation #authenticity #parenthood #widow #thrive #thrivelikeaparent #gainingsupport
EP: 64 On today’s episode of Thrive Like a Parent Podcast, I have a friend I want to introduce you to, her name is Kelly Brock. She is a business mentor, a coach, a mom, a wife and frankly overall bad ass. Kelly has been an entrepreneur for 14 years now. She spent 10 years in network marketing and has even been on the billboard in Times Square. But, in her last years of network marketing, she developed anxiety and depression. This made it difficult for Kelly to function as she used to and for anybody who knew her at that moment, it would not have matched the identity that she saw for herself or that was portrayed online. There is definitely a difference between achieving your dreams and achieving those dreams while maintaining your mental health, balance, and authenticity. And that’s literally exactly what Kelly does. And she does it in such a vulnerable and honest and beautiful way. And I’ve seen it firsthand. So a lot of what we want to tell you about today is entrepreneurship and finding the right people to work with, while keeping your authenticity and mental health a priority. It's important for everyone to know that you can be your own beautiful mess, yet still be a really awesome leader at the same time. It is possible to have that darkness but yet, what comes out of it is not icky and traumatizing but beautiful and healing and moving into alignment with, especially, entrepreneurship and business. You can be a human being and run a business, you can be a human being and be a leader. It is possible. Living in integrity is so crucially important to me, and having the trust of my community and knowing how important it is to find the support from humans who truly care, rather than just be a sales tactic or finding financial gains is what continues to motivate me in making a difference in people’s lives while helping them thrive like a human. You can follow Kelly on Instagram @KellyBrock or you can go to her website XOXO, Dr. B
EP:63 I promise you I am not getting political. My stance on what is going on in the world is that "a human is a human is a human '' and anytime there is loss of a human, it's devastating. With recent events, was I devastated to see what happened on October 7th? You bet. Does it hit home for me? Sure, I am a white Jewish female. But a human is a human is a human, and I need you to know that before I speak on anything I say today. As someone who has a voice you are always going to say things wrong. No matter what you say, it is always the wrong thing. I was told I was a disgrace, uneducated, disappointing, unfollowed, ignorant for my stance. But I want to take this example of what happened to me to speak about what often happens to us in our daily lives. It is important for you to understand that when having a conversation with someone you feel you are being heard, seen, your boundaries are being respected, and your position on a particular subject or matter, matters. It is also important for you to know, prior to any conversation, if that conversation will meet: 1. Conversation dialogue of safety 2. Connection Everyone needs to feel a safe connection rather than feeling shut down and defensive. You might be experiencing this right now and I'd like to help guide you and move you through how you can support yourself in moments where you don't feel seen, heard, shut down, defensive, etc. Those hard conversations will lead to the most beautiful safety and to the most beautiful connection if you go into them with vulnerability, honesty, and chipping away at all the walls around you. And if you have fear going into those conversations, that means that you're doing something different than you've ever done in the past. And that fear can guide you into knowing you're actually making changes in your life and making changes in your brain patterning and you're growing as a human because you're saying no fear. Join me on this week's episode of Thrive Like a Parent podcast to talk through how you can build safety within your brain.

EP:62 In this podcast episode of Thrive Like a Parent podcast I am so honored to be joined by Maria Gonzalez, a Doctor of Physical Therapy. Maria is also one of the coaches on my team who helps support our clients. Personal growth doesn't happen overnight and requires trust in the process. So many of our clients initially seek rapid, linear changes, but it takes time. We must learn to embrace the journey with its highs and lows that eventually turn into rolling hills. We must understand what truly mental health looks and how to support your mental health on a neurological level. And it stems so deep that we are then able to impart this wisdom on to our children. Once you make that shift, your child is then living with that parent, that version of you. And that's the version you've always been, but maybe never let out. And our children will then learn that and we help our clients learn how to support our children through the same mindset. If you tired of living in a constant state of fight or flight and are ready to find balance and piece.. My team and I would love to support you.
EP:61 If you are tired of being exhausted, if you're tired of being lonely, if you are tired of snapping at your kids, if you're tired of feeling like it's an uphill battle, if you are tired of only getting that dopamine hit when you buy something for yourself and there's no other joy in life, if you feel like your partnership is stale, or you want to rip their heads off….. That means ding ding, ding, ding, ding, it's time for support! Because you we aren't meant to do this alone. Take time to support you in the way that you need. That is how you go from fight or flight (red zone) to rest, restoration, peace, calm and all the different things that you long for. So take some time to rest and move through the yellow which is will be wildly uncomfortable but oh so worth it when you come out on the other side. Today I urge you to check in see how you're feeling for the day. - Are you picking your skin? - Are you chewing your nails? Are you biting your nails? - Are you emotionally eating? Are you snapping at your kids? - Are you completely disconnected from your partnership? - Are my shoulders raised? - Is my jaw clenched? - Is my forehead lifted? - Do I have a headache? Do a body scan. What are the things your body is telling you that suggest you may be in the red. What are you feeling? Where in your body are you feeling it? Then go give yourself three hours to take care of you because you're so damn worth it.
EP:60 You can create positive feedback loops of finding connection and safety and trust within the world around you. WHILE you are just simply being yourself. No costume. No act. No performance.The combination of no performance, just simply being yourself And finding safety in moments where you are just yourself is the secret sauce to that feedback loop of trusting you can simply be who you are. Know and trust your loved for exactly who you are. And it’s okay to be that person.So much good can come out of the awareness of finding safe moments and letting down your walls to simply be yourself, show up as yourself and trust those humans around you that they are safe. And if they don’t feel safe, that’s great awareness too.Join me on this weeks episode of Thrive Like a Parent podcast to talk through how you can build safety within your brain.XOXO,Dr. B#thrivelikeaparent #poscast #newepisode #thrivelikeaparentpodcast #parenting #emotionalregulation #buildingsafetywithinme #parent #sensory #sensoryregulation #nervoussystem #nervoussystemregulation #momlife #dadlife #trauma #traumahealing #childhoodtrauma #postpartum #thrive
EP:59 This episode of Thrive Like a Parent podcast is for the parent who is struggling with a child. And that is the bottom line. No matter diagnosis or not. The reason I'm doing this podcast, is because I've been there.Maybe you haven't realized how to put it into words.Maybe you haven't allowed yourself to fully feel those emotions.Maybe you haven't given yourself the permission to just validate that sometimes this shits hard, and you're exhausted and you're tired.I want you to know you're not alone. I want you to know it's okay to feel those feelings. And I want you to know that you are not the only parent on the roller coaster.If you need more support the team and I would love to support you. We would love to support your child into learning how to regulate. This journey is not meant to be taken alone.Comment “SUPPORT” and let’s chat.XOXO,Dr. B #podcast #throvelikeaparent #newepisode #parent #momlife #nervoussystem #nervoussystemregulation #emotionalregulation #sensoryplay #sensoryregulation #sensoryseeking #viral #video
EP:58 Join us in our latest episode on Thrive like a parent Podcast, where we chat about something we've all felt at times--- that feeling of being 'too much.' It's a deep-seated issue that quietly influences many areas of our lives, often without us realizing it. In our journey of self-discovery, we often seek empowerment, self-confidence, and control over our lives. These desires can be powerful driving forces, but sometimes, in our quest to achieve them, we unintentionally create a mask that usually hide our true selves where we end up portraying another version of us that doesn't align with our genuine feelings and identity, and make it hard for us to embrace confidence, honesty, and control which are helpful in rewiring the brain. But if we learn how to embrace our authenticity, speak up, and dance to our own rhythm, fear won't hold us back. So in this podcast, we talk about honoring exactly who you are, so that being too much will be your greatest gift. Actually, you are not too much, you're just being all that you're meant to be in this life. Take a risk! It's your brain's way of saying, "Be yourself, it's worth it!"
EP:57 Today, I have a guest on the Thrive Like a Parent podcast. Her name is Lindsay Kane now and I've known Lindsey since playgroup! Lindsey is a an incredible wife and mamma to two amazing boys. Lindsey owns a beautiful jewelry company. The link is in stories! I've worked with Lindsay and her family for a few years now. I've worked with Lindsay regarding herself and I've supported Lindsay with her kiddos. This episode is an authentic look through the lens of what a session with one of my clients looks like. We talk through our kids different nervous systems and how sometimes their underdeveloped nervous systems is what's getting in the way of them being able to attend and focus and how to support them through it all! My hope is that this will help you and other parents relate to Lindsey’s story.
