S3E2: Self-Care to Help Calm the Unsteady Times with Stacy Fisher of Living Upp
Today I bring you a wonderful conversation I had with the amazing Stacy Fisher, who is an incredible self-care “guru.” A certified dietician, hilarious, compassionate, fun, but such a beautiful light.
We talk about some of the bigger things in life, things that bring joy, the “deep” stuff. Stacy feels these are what leads us to what we can do to contribute and to support ourselves first so that we can support others. That’s why we’re here, to support one another.
But we must understand the basics and setting that foundation for being able to be in service and so that’s why Stacy has been drawn or pulled so much to self-care.
Over the last few weeks, in some ways, I feel like I’m losing my mind right now. This energy right now is so wonky, and I just feel so confused about how I feel about everything. And the topic of self-care is so neglected right now. Yet, it is so important.
Stacy and I touch on that, and we honor where we’re at right now, where you may be right now, and then how do we start to think about emerging from this.
The days now are fluid and they just kind of flow. And yes, we have things we have to get for meeting our basic needs. We must eat, we need to sleep, even though those schedules are so off-kilter.
So, the exercise helps me, I ask myself, “What do I need right now?” Well, right now I need a giant salad with fresh vegetables. See, you know, so you can start to get to know yourself. And while every day might have some decisions that are a little out of alignment with what you’re trying to achieve, that’s totally okay.
But it’s over the long term that we have to really get honest with ourselves. Is that where we really want to go? Stacy thinks asking ourselves this on a daily basis is so critical. What do you need the most right now? And when we have to prioritize. When do I ask others for support?
Listen in to this episode for some grounding and thoughtful ways to help us all get through some tough times, no matter the challenge.
Thanks so much for being here, I hope you are staying healthy right now and I’m sending you so much love.

I’m back with a special episode. I, like many, have struggled a lot this past year. But I’ve found some wonderful help, I am so grateful.
Manny Mendez from FOREEL Recovery joins me today to talk about how they are connecting art and recovery.
Today I’m talking to my friend, Aundre Washington. He shares his personal experience of darkness and what it means to not give up.
I wanted to let you know that if you are struggling with anything, whatever it is that you’re going through, if you’re struggling right now, just know that you’re not alone. And I too have been struggling over the last six months.
It’s not a ride I want to be on, but I find myself back and feeling all the emotions that come when you discover your loved one has relapsed.
What’s been happening? During this episode, I chat with you a little bit about what’s been going on in my world. I know my last episode kind of left things in just a state of flux. I had recorded kind of what I was going through at that moment and I try hard to be as transparent as I can with this podcast while also respecting my daughter. I feel really, really blessed because my daughter is so supportive of what I’m doing…
Tonight, I’m recording this episode from an old familiar place. I recently learned that my daughter, who had been doing so well. Left rehab after 15 months. She just walked away from it. All the hard work. The relationships that she’d built. Right now, this second, I am sickened with worry, fear, and feelings of guilt … wondering what went wrong? What did I miss? And why?
Today, I want to talk about traditions and how hard we push ourselves to recreate old memories, perhaps memories from a time when things were easier and how hard that is to do realistically, because we’ve changed.
Hi everyone, it has been a little while since I’ve recorded an episode but I have been thinking about you and I want to thank everyone for the encouragement and support.
Recovery success must truly be desired to be found and each path is unique for every person.
I have been doing a lot of walking on the beach and a lot of reflecting. The last time I was here I was visiting my daughter. She attended treatment out here…
Listen as I reveal a Special Announcement! Yes, I have been absent for a bit as I have been doing some processing lately. I had to take a step back and finally make a big decision…
Laura has helped hundreds of people overcome their past and begin to live the life of their dreams. It is her core belief that we can overcome anything. When we change our patterns and beliefs that keep us stuck; there are truly infinite possibilities that come into our awareness.
Jeff shares his incredible journey from addict to working with drug abusers on the streets, letting them know that there is hope.
A page from my journal… I’m putting it all out there. For other parents of addicts who may be struggling, or anyone else who has thought about giving up.
Take an honest evaluation and assessment of how you are contributing to their behavior…
As parents, we always want to do what’s best for our children. It’s always been that way. But, are we helping or are we enabling?
Reclaim your identity and higher purpose so you can stop the self-imposed suffering and start your truth-telling journey.
