Episode 209: Holiday Reminder to Avoid “Shoulding” on Yourself 

In this episode, Dr. Toni reminds you to stop “shoulding” on yourself and question the unconscious programming that has you stressed and spending way too much energy worrying about the expectations of others. By taking the time to question and re-evaluate what you “have to”, “need to” or “should” be doing, you can start to practice paying attention to your own needs and wants with healthy boundaries for more calm and peaceful holidays as we approach 2024. 

We cover:

  • The unconscious programming you receive from your family and culture
  • What can cause you stress and energy leaks
  • How social media conditions us to judge yourself and others
  • The importance of increasing your awareness around your automatic reactions, as well as giving yourself some grace and self-compassion
  • How to re-evaluate your boundaries with healthy conditions and consequences
    • Review the boundary setting process with Dr. Liz Bolen on Episode 197

Episode 206: How Hypnosis Can Help with Hot Flashes and Stress Management

In this episode, Dr. Toni discusses hypnosis and how it can be used to support relaxation, sleep and stress management, as well as helping to manage some symptoms of perimenopause and menopause like hot flashes. You might think that hypnosis is about mind control, however that’s just a common misconception that is often used in movies. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis and it has the potential to bring about some incredibly positive shifts, all while you stay fully in control.
