Erika Straub is a life coach for women seeking freedom from anxiety, perfectionism, guilt and body shame. A trained fitness expert, she incorporates body movement and exercises to help women tune into their bodies and boost their mental health. She feels most passionate about helping women transform and find their ground in a hectic world.
In this episode, we chat deeply about anxiety, the causes, symptoms and how different it can be for women. Erika explains the parasympathetic versus sympathetic response and how to create space between daily stimuli and responding. We talk about the observer - an idea that you are not your thoughts or actions, but rather an entity observing your human self. She also dives deep into physical practices that can help release anxiety and tension in the body, including where women tend to hold onto negative energy.
We also talk about:
- Ritual vs Routine
