S3.E14: (Re-release) What To Do When Things Don't Go Your Way
Welcome back to the LAST episode of The Mind Over Motherhood Podcast for 2021! Time really has flown by this year and while 2020 felt like a lot, 2021 was also wild. I'm sure you've experienced many of your own ups and downs from 2021, and I invite you to take some time to celebrate all your wins from 2021 and everything that's happened in your life this year.  In this episode, I share what's happened in the podcast in 2021 as well as some behind-the-scenes for what's been happening for me in my life. I hope it helps to inspire you to dream big and give yourself some freedom and flexibility when it comes to dreaming about your 2022 because I know from experience that so many of the wonderful things that have happened in my life this year weren't even on my radar in early 2021.  I'm also re-sharing a previous episode from the last season of Mind Over Motherhood, that can be so helpful this time of year. It's all about what to do when things don't go your way, as they inevitably do at one point or another. With the holidays it's likely that you had some big expectations, and that many things didn't go your way. With that can come big emotions, like anger, frustration, disappointment and resentment. Instead of getting stuck in the spiral of emotions, use these tips to process how you're feeling, pull yourself out of disappointment and move on to enjoying what is happening in your life right now, even if it wasn't exactly what you expected.  I hope you find this episode helpful and supportive. If you do, please leave a 5-star review, take a screenshot of this podcast and share it with your social media communities. And be sure to tag me at @carlycrewe so I can share my thanks!  See you in the new year friends!  If you're looking for more resources to support your mental health, I've got just what you need.

E3.11: What does it mean to trust?
E3.11: What does it mean to trust?
Welcome to the Mind Over Motherhood Podcast. In this episode, we're talking about trust and breaking down self-trust. This is such an exciting episode for me, and I'm sure it will be for you too because so many of us find ourselves wondering "what does it mean to have trust," especially when it comes to trusting ourselves.  Self-evolution, self-growth and expansion need to come from a place of deep self-trust to really blossom. I'm sharing a bit about what's been going on in my world, our move from Canada to Mexico with our twin 5-year-old daughters and our dogs and the big movement that's happening within my business and community! It's been a ton of changes, and self-growth that's really required a ton of self-trust and trust in the universe. I'm sharing this because I know from experience that when we see what's possible in other women, we're better able to trust, grow and expand in our own lives. Maybe you're feeling some exciting shifts and changes in your life, but you're struggling to trust in yourself or maybe you just want to expand your life ever so slightly. Regardless of your intention, every woman deserves to have a deep-rooted self of self-trust. My hope is that this podcast can help inspire you to expand into your own next level of greatness.  If you love this episode be sure to leave a 5-star review, take a screenshot and share it on Instagram!

S3.E9: What does it mean to be a Matriarch?
Welcome back to the Mind Over Motherhood podcast! This is going to be a little bit of a different type of podcast, that I'm so excited to share! In this podcast, I break down what The Matriarch program is and why you should care about being the matriarch in your family. I share a key story about how I realized the importance and value of being the matriarch of my own family and how it's totally changed my life.  I discuss how I see motherhood as a portal that allows us to step into our best most expansive versions of ourselves. This is a view that goes directly against what society has taught us, and I see in so many women that have lost touch with their own intuition, self-touch and power.  If you're even remotely interested in being the empowered, intuitive, leader of your family... then this episode is for you. I really hope that it sparks a flame inside of you so that you feel empowered to embody your own version of your family's matriarch.  Plus I share some really practical ways that you can step into being The Matriarch in your family today. Learn more about this incredibly exciting new offer, The Matriarch on my website carlycrewe.com/matriarch. Doors close on December 20th, 2020.

S2. E19: How To Get The Most Out Of Going To Therapy
How exciting is it that going to therapy is now considered cool?! More and more people are becoming comfortable talking about therapy and going to therapy. As an MD Psychotherapist, I think this is very exciting! So on this week's episode, I'm sharing how you can get the most out of going to therapy.  It's really healing and powerful to have someone - who is objective - to speak to about how you're doing and how you're feeling. Having a therapist you resonate with, gives you the space to ask the questions you're afraid to ask, to get an objective perspective, and to learn the skills you need for good mental health.  Dive into this week's episode, to learn how to make the most out of your therapy, so that you can arrive prepared and not waste time. Whether you've been in therapy for years or are considering it, therapy is something that everyone can and should be doing. We're taught that we should just "figure it all out on our own," but that's not true! You deserve support!  If you're considering therapy, check out my fully virtual mental health clinic, Eunoia Medical. We have a team of female family physicians who supports women in a really holistic way. We combine psychotherapy techniques (like talk therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy), integrative approaches, psychopharmacology and nutritional psychiatry to provide a personalized and comprehensive approach.  Eunoia Medical: eunioamedical.com The Eunoia Collective: carlycrewe.com/membership You Are Not Your Anxiety: How To Stop Being A People Pleasing Mess: carlycrewe.com/you-are-not-your-anxiety-2 Instagram: instagram.com/carlycrewe

In this week's episode of Mind Over Motherhood, I am sharing an interview I recently did with Katie Cannon as part of her online summit, How to Build a Health and Fitness Brand Online in 2021.  When Katie approached me to be a guest on the summit, her question was simple: how can entrepreneurs build a business and maintain their mental health at the same time? The truth is entrepreneurship is a wild, exhilarating and demanding endeavour. Without boundaries, systems, checks and balances, it is easy to let the passion and drive for your business turn your life into a vortex of working, hustling and stressing.  In this brief interview, I shared with Katie and her summit attendees some of the most effective strategies I have to help manage time, balance competing priorities and work in alignment with neuroscience, so that we can create a business without damaging our mental health.  Tune in and let me know you're listening!

E2.9: [Relationship Series] Keeping the Spark Alive After Kids with Kelly Swartz, Erotic Expert
Continuing on our theme of relationships this week, I had an amazing interview with Kelly Swartz, Erotic Expert and founder of Awoken Beauty.  Many couples struggle to keep "the spark" alive after kids. With dishes, and diapers, crying babies and the never-ending-to-do list, finding time to have sex or be intimate together can feel like one extra unnecessary "to-do." And many women feel...different after having a baby than they used to. This can change how we feel in the bedroom as well.  In this episode, Kelly and I talked about all sorts of important things around intimacy, sex and relationships after kids.  We chatted about:  Why it's impossible for your sex life to "go back to how things were" after kids (but it can still be amazing!) How to nourish your biggest sex organ for more desire + pleasure The fundamental ingredient to a good sex life after kids Be sure to screenshot/tag/share if you're listening!

We shared honest and relatable stories about our own transitions into motherhood, discussed key strategies for navigating "postpartum shock" and laughed about breastfeeding struggles, birth plans and "staying off the carpet." This episode was a joy to record and I hope you enjoy listening as much as I did recording it! You can connect with Betsy: On Instagram: @laughtermakeseverythingbetter Website: www.betsylaughter.com
