Episode 230

Hello, friend!

I'm happy you are here!

Journaling is a form of self-reflection or introspection where one accounts for their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. It is a helpful tool for people who want to reduce their stress levels & anxiety and can also be an effective recovery tool for those recovering from addiction. Whether you are looking for ways to improve yourself or want to explore what's going on in your life, journaling can help you get there.

In episode 230, I'm joined by Noelle Van Vlierbergen (for the second time!), a certified life & addiction recovery coach and the author of the book; The Sober Leap: Practical Wisdom to Create an Amazing Life Beyond Addiction.

  • What led Noelle to get sober
