42: HOW TO HANDLE CHANGE



Change- life is full of them! The seasons change, people in our life change, clothing style changes, our favorite restaurant changes their menu or maybe one of your fav products changes its formula and it no longer works. We ALL go through change.

But, what is your take on change? Do you resist it? Do you dread it? Do you fight it?

Or do you embrace it and allow yourself to grow and transform it?

Listen in to see how when I changed my relationship to change this directly impacted my binge eating/ emotional eating/ sugar cravings. Because when I changed my perception of change- it was no longer painful for me. I came at if from a different approach and therefore it didn’t trigger my past autopilot response to eat away my feelings of uncertainty that change use to bring.

Action Step:   Let your curiosity seek out how do you respond or react to pain? How come? What is your fear in change? Do you trust that you can handle what the change will bring into your life? Can you be open to shifting your perception of change so that you can live a life free of this fear instead of it overwhelming you?

39: HOLIDAY GOODIES AND EMOTIONAL EATING/BINGE EATING/ OVEREATING



Holiday season- there are cookies, fudge, baked goods, bars, candy galore!! If you struggle with sugar, food and control- this is a nightmare and can literally stress you out.

In the past I knew that I shouldn’t be constantly thinking about the goods and when to eat it, how much should I eat or when I should stop.

I knew that I shouldn’t depend on the sugar rush the sweets would provide in order to get through the chaos.

But, I had no idea how this would ever end. What would my life look like not turning to sugar/ sweets or even worse… what if I didn’t eat those foods and never tasted that yumminess… how boring!

But, I longed for a different life where my mind would be at peace with sweets and food and where it would no longer feel like a battle.

Action Step:   Get curious, do you struggle with sugar? With food? With overeating? Do you desire change?

38:  RAWR BARS: MISSION TO FUEL PEOPLE WITH NUTRIENT DENSE & REAL FOOD WITH JAKE & RACHEL



Finding a quality protein bar that is healthy, clean and tastes good is a struggle! Join in on this podcast where you hear from Jake & Rachel on their journey to creating the RAWR Bar. Which is a plant based, protein packed bar that is made with high quality, organic ingredients without all the excess sugar designed to fuel your bold pursuit in life.

One of my fav things about Jake & Rachel are they are from the Midwest! I love local and I love supporting people on an amazing mission. 10% of every proceed goes to feed hungry children worldwide!! But, their long term vision is to design a meal replacement bar that has the nutrients that are lacking in a starving child’s diet. For each protein bar purchased in America, a meal replacement bar would be sent to a feed a starving child! AMAZING!!!

Their story is super interesting and unique so press play and listen in to this amazing couple and their journey.

37: CHANGES, CHALLENGES, GROWTH



WOW-How is it almost 2020!? I remember last year at this time. It was a not-so-fun part of my life and my journey. I remember getting my lowest paycheck in my network marketing biz and feeling like such a failure, feeling like what is wrong with me? Why am I struggling so much!? Listen to hear about where 2019 took me: The up’s, the down’s the feelings of being an imposter, the feelings of failure and the feelings of disappointment.

But, I’m grateful. I’m so grateful for that opportunity because I would never be where I am today. I would have never chosen my niche to be serving Mompreneurs in the Health & Wellness industry to help them end their battle with sugar so they no longer feel like an imposter in their industry. SO FREAKING EXCITED FOR THIS!!!!

AND- guess what. I am committed to serving you in a private group! Check it out here! I’m building this from the ground up in order to truly serve those Mompreneurs in the health & wellness industry to struggle with sugar addiction and struggle with feeling like a fraud or an imposter in their industry because of it. Together we rise. Together we grow. Together we embody. Join me- in the group!

Action Step:   Take a peak at your year, where have you grown? What were some events or challenges that happened that at the time you were devasted, but now can look back and see the lesson? How can you show more gratitude for this part of your life?

36: IMPORTANCE OF VALUES WITH CO-HOST BENTON AGE 3 :)



Values- often time we don’t think about values unless we are reading about a biz and they are chatting to us about their values and what they think is important. But, really have you been curious about your own values!? Values are important because as we make decisions in our life, when we are choosing options that aren’t in alignment with our values, we struggle with this disconnect which often leads us to numbing out. For myself, I turned to food & sugar. I struggled because I knew all this information but struggled with acutually applying what I learned into my daily life. By digging deep, being curious and truly determining what are your values, you can start to make your decisions in alignment with these values which will help you with alignment.

Action Step:   Hop on Pinterest & check out a list of values and see what is important to you. Write down your top 5 and then journal out why they are important to you and how these values show up in your daily life.

34: WHAT TRIGGERS ILLNESS- IT’S LIKELY NOT WHAT YOU THINK!



I started reading Caroline Myss book called Anatomy of the Spirit and took away a few super interesting pieces! She chats a ton about our emotions and how they are related to sickness, illness and disease. “To create disease, negative emotions have to be dominant and what accelerates the process is knowing the negative thought to be toxic but giving it permission to thrive in your consciousness anyway.” For example, when you know you need to forgive someone, but you decide to remain angry because you feel like that gives you more power.

These built up emotions inside of us do us literally no freaking good!! Then why are we so addicted to holding on to them? Why do we find it hard to let it go!?

Going through a coaching program that focused on feeling our emotions to heal was key to me realizing the importance, working through it, embodying the work and realizing that this is crazy important for all of us to understand!!

Breathwork- ready to release that baggage!? Doing breathwork is huge to bring up that stuck energy and to let it go! I’m still offering online breathwork 1:1 and workshop sessions free until January as part of my Pause Practicum. If interested go here to sign up https://operationtransformationpodcast.blubrry.net/pause-breathwork/

Are you done with being addicted to the struggle, ready to overcome your emotions, ready to conquer your addiction to food!? Then click here http://bit.ly/crystalhalversongroupcoaching to apply for my coaching program starting in January!

Action Step:   Make a list of who do you need to forgive? Is it someone else? Is it you? Then start writing letters. Write a letter from you to that person and vice versa. What do you want to say to them, but you can’t? What did you wish to hear from them, but they never said it to you? Read it aloud, look at the mirror, feel into it. Feel into every little piece. Then let it go. Chop it up, burn it up (be responsible!!!) and release it. How does it feel?

33:  DO YOU NEED TO STOP LISTENING TO PODCASTS!? 



I bet you never thought you would hear a podcaster talk about this!?
But, seriously- are you addicted to consuming content!? Do you fill every waking moment with a podcast, audible book, reading a book that is teaching you something or guiding you to live a certain way? Do you feel like you are falling short because you learned awesome material, but you aren’t applying it?

I’ve been there, I hear you lady.

Stop. Just stop the podcasts, the audible books, the self-help books and just be present.

Instead of filling you with content, it’s OK to take a step back and choose some fun options like putting on your favorite Spotify or Pandora station and jamming out to your fav songs, or what if you sat in silence in your car (GASP!!) Or what if you use the noting tool, I teach you in this episode to allow you to slow down, be more present and reduce some of that anxiety and overwhelm.

Action Step:   I dare you. If you are at that point where I was and feeling like there is so much to implement and so much to learn and go- go – go…. stop. Start noting your thoughts, start adding some fun back into your life and see how different your days are when you stop over consuming and start being present.
