Addiction Recovery, Creating Boundaries and Rediscovering Identity – Episode 11 – The Chasing Joy Podcast
My jaw dropped the first time I heard Erin’s story. As she explains, she’s not exactly who you picture when you think of drug and alcohol addiction. Her story of going from addiction to recovery and rediscovering her health and self along the way is truly inspiring. On today’s episode of the Chasing Joy Podcast I had the pleasure of sharing a powerful conversation about health and wellness that started with addiction but covered everything from lying to boundaries to the importance of transparency online and so much more.
I love these kinds of conversations because while they touch on the importance of food and movement, it’s clear to see that health and well being is so much more than how you eat. One of the many reasons I was initially attracted to Erin’s work is because she’s a huge advocate for mental health. I know you’ll get so much out of this conversation and Erin’s approach to health, after everything she’s been through.
