Why Are We Like This: Anxiety Edition
Welcome to May’s episode of Why Are We Like This?: Anxiety Edition   In this month’s episode, Kristen and I share on a topic that’s been popping up for both us, and for our clients + community: anxiety.  Each of us has our own experience of what it feels like to dance with this feeling, and with what stirs it up in us. This episode is all about our own personal exploration of it, along with the shifts we’ve made in our own lives to help navigate and/or relinquish it where possible.  As the world around us becomes even more overwhelming, we’ve both found the importance of managing our nervous systems, controlling what we can, and finding acceptance with (and letting go of) what we can’t.  We hope you enjoy the conversation and if you find some piece of it useful, we’d be honored if you shared and tagged us: @amberlilyestrom and @kristenhubbardwrites over on Instagram!

Lauryn is a somatic business coach, breathwork facilitator, speaker, retreat host, wife and mom. She spent over a decade building businesses that allow space for truly living and she inspires others to do the same. She's also the creator of the wealth lab and online community giving women the tools and permission to experiment and discover their unique money-making formula. Moreover, Lauryn is a serial entrepreneur, founder of Meadows Realty Group, The Detroit mobile bar and Retreat to Reclaim. Lauryn has been featured by Detroit moms, Metro Detroit weddings, Dance Collective and more. She's built a multiple six figure business while being present with her family. She lives in Michigan with her high school sweetheart turn husband, Ronnie, and their two daughters and their one angel son. It has been a privilege to journey with her to witness her healing process and the ways in which she's come into the fullness of who she really is and what her work in the world is. Today’s conversation is a powerful one, and I'd also like to add a heartfelt and sensitive warning for those who aren't in a position to listen to a conversation about pregnancy or infant loss at this time in their lives. Lauryn shares a very personal part of her story, and it may be difficult for those who are healing to listen to such stories in this season of life. So, for our listening audience and family's sake, I just want to put that very sensitively. I also urge you to listen to this conversation if you're feeling up to it, because Lauryn is a gift, and her teachings as a somatic business coach and as someone who is here to help women create businesses that allow for real life to happen, are a profound blessing.

In fact, there is just no normal anymore.” [13:28] “To keep it all inside, and not letting ourselves receive support is, is really the reason why we suffer so deeply.” [17:12] “Is that these beliefs, these stories we hold so deeply, we find so much proof for them Amber like, I mean, I have all the proof like, this happened to me. And it goes even beyond that if we look at our stories from childhood. And so, it's like, it's never going to just go away, but you still have to continue to move through it. “[19:59] “Not everything we do has to be for a business, not everything that we invest in has to be for something to create for somebody else; we do get to do this work for ourselves, too. “[25:58] “The more that you grow, the more everything in your life will grow “[26:28] “To allow for the downloads to come like give yourself enough space to actually process like, what could that be? What would that look like? Would my hearts be really interested in this? Like, allow yourself to question that, and, and then listen, and then take some small actions for it.” [36:40] “I'm not the same person today that I was yesterday.” [42:05]   Links Mentioned:  Connect with Lauryn Lasczack:  Website:  Instagram:   Email us at:
