I want you to take a question and ask yourself, how often do you feel stressed? And do you know the true root cause of why you feel that way? Many women have shared issues of experiencing overwhelm and don’t know how to get themselves out. Luckily, Dr. Samantha recognized this issue through her naturopathic physician and acupuncturist clinic in Portland, Oregon, and has been working for the past 22 years to help people find physical and mental balance.
Now, Dr. Samantha works with clients to create innovative and personalized approaches to dismantle your stress from the inside out and figure out what you really want in life. Dr. Samantha believes that the first step is to figure out what you want in your life, what your values and beliefs are, and what is stopping you from getting what you want out of life. Through practices in self-care, taking time to consider why you are saying yes or no, and breaking free of societal constraints.
So many of us are running around in these tangent circles without a clear way out. It can be a combination of mental, emotional, nutritional and lifestyle issues that are disconnecting you from your natural state of being. These factors can come from societal, family and internal pressures which are setting ourselves up for failure. If you are ready to get brutally honest with yourself and change your hard-wired behaviors in your body, Dr. Samantha is here to help you unpeel the layers.
Today Dr. Samantha is sharing her 4 step process to figuring out what is most important for you, a free bonus of the first values exercise from her new book, plus so much more. I know that most of us can relate to the feeling of desperately wanting to overcome overwhelm, but what did Dr. Samantha touch on that really resonated with you?
