Sarah Explains It All

By Sarah Byrne

Imagine sitting down and having those raw conversations with friends over coffee or wine. That is what this podcast is. Unedited and unscripted conversations that you would have with a friend about all things life and business. I use these conversations to shine a light on topics not often talked about or thought need to be discussed. I am here to create community, shine a light on these stories, and spread a bit of hope.

This is a juicy episode and we covered so many good tips.  Topics we cover: *How she got into health coaching *How to create and sustain healthy habits *The 1 comment that her therapist said that blew her mind *How she helps her clients sit with the uncomfortableness  *Tips on how to intentionally eat *How to allow yourself to eat the 'naughty food' *Her period positive story *SO MUCH MORE Fave takeaways: *'Our thoughts truly drive everything we eat and do.' *'If we start with connecting with what we are thinking that doesn't serve us, we can go so much farther so much easier.' *'What if you let your body just feel what it wants to feel.' *'We always have that choice to say yes and no.' ABOUT ELENA: I’m a certified health coach and personal trainer, wife, mom and owner of Elena Nicole Health. I  help busy women get healthier, look and feel their best in a realistic and sustainable way. From a young age I watched my parents and family members struggle with their weight, body image and confidence. I remember sitting in weight watchers meetings in middle school, and subconsciously thinking - "there has to be a better way" and questioning if there was more to life than trying to hate yourself skinny or diet yourself happy. As I got older, I fell into the same traps of cyclical dieting, restriction, binging and obsessing - until one day I decided I was done. I was determined to find a sustainable method to true mental, emotional and physical health, and once I did - I vowed to share it with as many other women as I could. I started researching and educating myself on the missing piece of many programs - mindset. I studied and learned the psychology behind nutrition, movement and motivation, and eventually started developing my own program, which has helped me lose 40+ lbs., keep it off, while creating a long term healthy lifestyle I love. This method has also helped me improve my skin, energy, anxiety and depression, digestive issues, sleep, immunity, bloating, painful period cramps, headaches and more. Now as a certified holistic health coach, I help others do the same.My mission is to share my program, method, experience and lessons learned with as many women as I can, so I can help them go from struggling, stressed and hopeless to successful, confident and empowered!

'I felt like a guinea pig, to be honest. They kept trying different ones to see if one suited me better and they all came with other horrific side effects.' 'The innate knowledge women are all born with and society tells us to ignore.' 'I didn't know what mum guilt was until I had a child and then it hit me like a ton of bricks!' 'Our era is different and there is so much information now, that we really do have a duty of care to provide the real conversations around it.' Taking Charge of Your Fertility ABOUT GEMMA I am on a mission to ensure mums have access to the knowledge and support needed to rehab and return to exercise safely post-baby, no matter how many months or years postnatal you are! As a mum of two and having to rehab post-C-section with a 3.5cm ab separation, I came to realise how little support there is for mums wanting to return to fitness. This very realisation has led me to the work I do now! Having spent my whole life competing and working in the sports and fitness industry I am passionate about helping mums achieve their fitness, strength, confidence, and self care goals. I have helped hundreds of mums to heal and strengthen their core and pelvic floor, increase their full-body strength through weight training, learn how to prioritize themselves without the mum guilt, and change daily habits to ensure they make time for themselves!!

The Importance of Communication with Delia Beadle
The Importance of Communication with Delia Beadle
Join me as I journey with Delia through her own story with communication and her partner. We have an in-depth conversation about: *Communication with significant other *How to bring yourself back to communication when times are tough *How Shamanic healing helps us get very clear on what is going on within us *How looking at our partner and ourselves individually helps us to regenerate our relationships *How changing our mindset around challenge points helps foster better relationships Some of my favourite quotes: 'Our brain is logging somewhere around 96 million pieces of data every single day. That is ALL communication-inner and outer.' 'Everyone is different and if you get to that point where you think communication is over, ask yourself one question-Do you still want to be with this person? Does your heart still beat for them?' 'How are you contributing to this relationship? This movie reel showed me all the times I was mean, I put myself first, and pushed him away when he was trying to be affectionate. The answer was not much.' 'The energy you are giving off, that's communication.' Human Design Profile ABOUT DELIA I spent three decades searching for where I belong and to learn something that would give me purpose and meaning in the world. What I discovered though, is that I was longing to reconnect with the Earth and the stories hidden in my bones. I was thirsty for the deep richness of living a more mythic life and sensing into all that was around me in nature. As this journey deepened, I remembered -- I belong everywhere and I exist. This is my purpose. It is my absolute honour to serve in my community the wisdom and experiences I have nourished so that it may nourish the remembering and connection within you also.

Self Worth Journey with Tonia Winchester
Self Worth Journey with Tonia Winchester
What a fascinating journey to go on with Tonia to see how becoming an advocate for herself helped her to discover and heal her body of excruciating pain every month during her bleed. We talk about how it started and what it took to go to the doctor for another opinion, how society has taught us that 'doctors are always right' and we are taught to 'trust them'. Some favourite topics we cover are timeline clearing and what trauma is and how we can distinguish between 'Big T' and 'Little T' trauma. Some of my favourite quotes from this journey: *'So many women can resonate with a story of not having the best menstrual cycles.' *'That is just who you are and that is so disheartening.' *'I had never asked to be referred, that advocacy for myself, I didn't have it in me at that time'. *'I was scared all the time, in fear all the time, of what the next period would be like.' *'I was feeling hopeless.' *'This fall has been miraculous and I don't feel afraid all of the time.' ABOUT TONIA: Dr. Tonia Winchester has been in practice as a Naturopathic Doctor since 2007.  Now, as a brain-based transformation coach, she uses contemporary neurological reprogramming techniques to help women break through burnout, stress, anxiety, and fatigue and find joy and energy again so that they can create exceptional lives for themselves, their families and communities. She guides her clients through a "Breakthrough" process where they easily and gently clear the past, and recode their unconscious minds so that they are primed to make and sustain positive changes in how they take care of themselves. The results are a strengthened connection to self - more self-love, worth, and value, ultimately allowing them to build happy, meaningful relationships and compelling futures. Tonia has been featured on CTV, the Costco Connection, The Elephant Journal, Conscious Nutrition, The Autoimmune Simplified Podcast, the Better Sex Podcast, Creative Conversations, and the New Generation Entrepreneur Podcast. She is an executive contributor at Brainz Magazine writing monthly articles. When she's not transforming lives she is getting lost (and found) in the forest, salsa dancing, and turning paper into pretty things.

Masha is a visionary leader in the world of health and wellness, transformation enthusiast, diet and exercise culture myth buster, proponent of body neutrality movement, and as she says, 'I'm not your healer or guru, YOU ARE!’ People know her as the health coach who doesn't believe in counting calories, prescribing meal plans or pushing through at the gym and instead empowers women to discover and enjoy what works for them, while building her dream home in Colorado with her partner and their two pups. She says: "What you might not know is this: The best version of yourself is not necessarily the skinnier, more toned, tan, younger, cellulite-free. The best version of yourself is the happiest one. Focus on that and everything will fall into place' You can find her over on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/yourguidemasha/ HER FREEBIE: Grab your free Happy Body Guide here: https://happybody.yourguidemasha.com/ (Lifestyle, diet and exercise guide for women who are tired of starving themselves and slaving away at the gym with little or no results) ABOUT SARAH: I am a Menstrual Cycle Coach who teaches women business owners how to harness the power of their natural energy cycles to avoid overwhelm and burnout and to be more productive and create more success in their lives and businesses.

The Sarah Explains It All PIVOT!
It has been pretty quiet on this podcast, hasn't it? In true, 1/3 Sacral ManGen fashion, I got bored and need to get re-inspired again and I had one interview that did JUST THAT. The podcast has now changed direction. I am here to share stories and journeys, to shine a light at the end of the tunnel, and to give hope, ultimately, to create a community and a village. We need that. We need to hear other stories to know we aren't alone in whatever journey we are on.  Get your FREE Cycle Tracker here! https://view.flodesk.com/pages/61c34678d2fc90968d6f4981

Laura Torbett-Founder of lunae
Laura is a mama, yoga teacher, and movement enthusiast. She has an affinity for practices that promote body literacy and yet it still took her almost 20 years of menstruating to learn that there was more to her cycle than simply being on her period or off. Her mission is to shortcut that timeline for menstruating women everywhere so we can all access the potential embedded in our cycles and show up the way we want to in the world. She has gifted us a discount code to sign up for your first month free! Use SBPOD  AND a gorgeous downloadable!

Self-Care in Your Spring Season
Self-Care in Your Spring Season
The main takeaways-Self-care is JUST activities that fill YOUR cup up, to the point of OVERFLOW (thanks @DopeMomLife). Spring is characterised by an increase in estrogen which gives us increased energy, freshness, renewal-think about Spring that is going on outside! I definitely feel these qualities, I always feel more energy during those few moments of Spring. Let's refocus our creativity.  I really like cleaning. I know, odd. I like having a cleaner house so my mind is clear. Self-care, at the end of the day, is something you truly enjoy and makes your soul sing. That is YOUR self-care. I will also batch cook with my extra energy. I love a Madeline Moves Weekly Workout or a Barre Blend class. Pampering is big for me, as well. Getting my nails done and eyebrows threaded. If I want to start something new, I will start that now. I look back at my Core Values to help me pinpoint some self-care activities. Boundaries is a huge act of self-care for me. Seeing friends (if allowed!).  Your body has its own way of letting you know that you are burning yourself out. How?! You learn. You listen to your body and you learn your cues. We miss the cues sometimes, it is work every single day. We have to actively pay attention to what our body is saying. We will have times where we disregard our boundaries and this is ok because we are human but we are more able to discern our cues when we pay attention. B.U.S.Y. But You Said Yes. Another Jacki Carr special.  You are busy because you have said yes to too many things-I incorporate boundary work.  I ask myself 3 questions-Am I doing this out of guilt? Am I doing this because I don't want to let anyone down? OR Am I doing this because I really want to?  If it is the first 2-I try to say no. More/Less List (Claire Baker) Draw a line down the middle of the page and label one side More and the other Less What could you spend less time doing? What is making you feel more overwhelmed? Write that down in the Less side What could you spend more time doing? What lights you up? What are you craving more of? Write that down in the More side Circle 2-3 things on each list and try to incorporate more from the More list and less from the Less list! 50 Things You Need to Know About Periods-Claire Baker Enjoy the rise in energy and the excitement, creativity, momentum, motivation. Pay attention and be aware of our boundaries.  sarahbyrnewellness.com instagram.com/iamsarahbyrne For your FREE cycle tracker and journal prompts

Spring 101
Spring 101
This episode is all about your spring! No, I don't mean the spring going on outside, I mean the one going on in your body-just keeping track of notes so that I am not too long-winded! Spring 101! What do you need to know about your Spring? This is the time in your cycle, you'll have had your Bleed (your winter), you will feel your energy rising (hormones are rising!) you'll feel more energetic, feel much more vibrant and not as sluggish or tired as you had in your Winter. This will last about 7-10 days and is called the Follicular phase (not that I talk about what is going on in that way!). Imagine what is happening in Spring outside? In the wild? Things are blossoming, growing, more energy-you are excited to tackle new projects, you feel more optimistic. Spring is a great time to: *Start a new healthy eating kick *Exercise regime *New project You have so much energy to do this now. Start small and find accountability. You feel more confident and more like you can get things done-estrogen is rising and our Follicle Stimulating Hormone is on the rise here. You will feel like you are moving more towards being out-you are a sleepy flower blossoming. Schedule busy weeks during this time as well as Summer-tapping into your natural energy stores. Momentum and motivation are SUPER high right now. If you are working on a business, you have: *More clarity *Mental focus is high *Much more independent *Physical stamina Think big bold action, working longer hours. If you don't work for yourself but can arrange projects to fall during this time-I highly recommend it! Look at your calender-SCHEDULE IT OUT. Grounding into our body and noticing your patterns, you will start to notice higher energy and lower energy. Be mindful of our inner critic and overdoing it! If you have a surge of energy be mindful of not using it all and burning out. Slow and steady wins the race! You don't have to push so much just because you can. Contemplate new ideas and don't jump the gun too quickly. Let them percolate like a good cup of coffee. Spring is a great time to start to shrug off the fog and this helps us to get those projects off the ground. To help me shrug off that fog, I take walks in the morning (especially during the actual spring!). It allows me to get some movement in my day and to contemplate my schedule. The Spring allows you to understand your limits, to keep the tenderness, playfulness, it is precious, this learning of our boundaries. The next episode is all about Self-Care in Our Spring! sarahbyrnewellness.com instagram.com/iamsarahbyrne For your FREE cycle tracker and journal prompts

How To Track Your Cycle
How To Track Your Cycle
Show Notes: It is NOT just one week a month, it is every day once you start your menarche (menstrual cycle) Alisa Vitti books Woman Code In the Flo Embrace your cyclicality! Lean into this. Using the seasons to distinguish the different times of the months is an easy way to understand what our bodies are doing because we can relate it to nature. Cycle Syncing-bringing awareness to our bodies own natural hormone cycle-it changes SO it is important to understand what is normal to you. One of the main reasons it is such a big deal is that it allows us to use this knowledge to inform our actions-it is like our own crystal ball! If you aren't menstruating because of a hysterectomy (there's the word!) or you've gone through Menopause, you can still track your cycle using the New Moon-more on that later! It supports your health and energy while optimising your energy. Taps you back into what really matters to you (think VALUES, people!). It is a mini life coach and allows you to heal fatigue and heal burnout. Allows you the opportunity to know when you have more energy and can burn both ends of a candle or when you need to slow it down. Being friends with your body is SUPER important as opposed to being at odds and enemies. Now onto tracking! You START your tracking on day 1 of your bleed-your actual bleed, not spotting. Everyone is different, again, which is why it is important to understand YOUR body. The foods, drinks, stressors we put in and our body through will all have an effect on our bleed and cycle. THE 4 "SEASONS" Winter - Menstrual Phase (approx 5-7 days) Spring - Follicular Phase (approx 7-10 days) Summer - Ovulatory Phase (approx 3-4 days) Autumn - Luteal Phase (approx 10-14 days) I ALWAYS like to ask myself these questions every day before I get out of bed-takes 5 minutes! WRITE IT DOWN! Helps you to integrate what you are feeling :) *How do I feel physically? *How do I feel emotionally? *How do I feel mentally? Journal Prompts: *What is my body saying I need today? *What is my inner critic saying today? *What do I need to do for self-care today? Get my cycle tracker below! After checking in every day for a couple of months, you will start to notice a pattern and similarities. It is a great way to take 5 minutes to pay attention to you and just you. Once our days start, it is more challenging. The point of this practice is that it allows YOU to pay attention to YOU. Self-care at its best. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. Asking for help is a sign of strength. 'You fill your cup so much that you fill others from the overflow.' https://www.instagram.com/jackicarr/ We should be looking inside ourselves and not outside of ourselves for the answers-it is a work in progress. Not a 1 and done, y'all. EVERY SINGLE DAY. Befriend your cycle, befriend your body. sarahbyrnewellness.com instagram.com/iamsarahbyrne  For your FREE cycle tracker and journal prompts
