We all have the power of gut intuition inside of us, but our minds have a tendency to mess things up. Lindsey believes in leaning into the uncomfortable and the unknown to change your mindset and move through your betrayal gracefully. 

Lindsey is proof that when you feel the inspiration to do something, even if it is scary or uncomfortable, you should do it anyways. Growth is found in the inspiration of not knowing, and it is only by embracing the unknown that we can learn what we are truly capable of. 

When you are able to harness healing techniques such as yoga and meditation you can allow your body to rest and in turn receive better sleep, more energy and make wiser choices. Learn how the FBTB program altered Lindsey’s life, and what you can do to make the scary steps to healing not so scary, on this episode.
