Episode 82: Minding Your Mental Health

Welcome to the Rooted Mind Podcast!

Episode #82: Minding Your Mental Health

Your host: Jess and Shelby

[0:45]  Intro and life updates

[8:02] Getting rid of excuses that keep you from caring for your mental health

[9:00] Growth is circular, not linear

[9:30] Caring for our mental health is our personal responsibility

[9:50] Anxiety cycle

[10:45] You’re not “just a mom”

[11:20] Recognizing your value as a person, not just as a parent

[11:40] Children of parents who have untreated mental illness are more at risk for mental illness themselves, as well as poorer academic performance

[12:15] It takes bravery to confront trauma, but the benefits are worth it

[12:30] Everyone can benefit from counseling, not just those with a diagnosable mental illness

[13:20] Jess: We pick up our habits and mindsets from what we see modeled in childhood

[14:30] Shelby: Our psyche is only able to look and deal with certain things when it feels safe

[14:40] It is not weak to seek therapy or a mentor to help you process your emotions and feelings

[15:35] Shelby: Culturally, we’ve shifted away from taking care of ourselves

[16:54] Shelby: I think that addressing mental health is the first step in taking care of our overall physical health

[18:25] The importance of loving yourself and letting go of guilt/negativity

[19:51] Getting past the fear of seeking mental health help

[20:45] Shelby: Find a counselor that you like; find someone you connect with and that you feel safe with

[22:55] Breaking the myth of becoming an inpatient against your will

[24:50] Studies show that moms are often reluctant to share symptoms of mental illness because they’re afraid of losing their child[ren]; breaking the stigma of mental health treatment can help with this fear

[26:13] Shelby: As soon as you become pregnant, find a counselor that can help you throughout your motherhood journey; having someone that knows you will make postpartum depression/anxiety treatment a lot more accessible if needed

[28:04] Jess: Investing in your mental health touches every aspect of your life

[28:50] When you’re less stressed, you’re more productive and have more energy

[30:55] Shelby: A lot of counselors do a free initial consultation to see if it’s a good fit; google counselors, ask around, take the steps necessary to find a mental health professional near you

[31:28] Shelby shares tips for being proactive about your mental health

[33:55] Shelby shares her upcoming webinar

Episode 80: All about Mold

Welcome to the Rooted Mind Podcast!

Episode #80: All about Mold

Special guest: Shawn with Certified Mold Assessments

Your host: Jess

[0:45]  Intro

[1:00] Jess: Can you tell us your background and how you got into mold inspection?

[1:17] Shawn shares how he got started

[2:13] Shawn: We look at homes through a holistic approach and we leave no stone un-turned

[4:10] Mold is linked to autoimmunity, headaches, and chronic fatigue

[4:50] Shawn: When we’re recommended to check out a home by a doctor, it’s because their patient is being treated and not getting better or they believe mold is the root cause of their illness, so we go in to the home and get extra thorough; 100% of the time, we find some pretty significant issues

[5:20] Jess: How would someone know they need to have a mold inspection?

[5:40] Shawn: Mold can be really evasive and it can cause many symptoms, we always tell people to listen to their body.

[6:40] Jess: Can you have mold in your home but not physically see it?

[6:45] Shawn: Often mold is hidden

[7:06] Causes of mold other than water damage

[7:41] History of property matters

[8:10] Mold spores can fragment and create ultra fine particles that get into our blood stream

[8:55] Jess: What can someone do in regards to maintaining their home humidity levels with their A/C?

[9:25] Keep your humidity between 35-55%

[9:44] Humidity above 60% creates an environment for lower-moisture-content molds

[10:34] Dangers of mold in air handlers, ventilation systems, and duct work

[11:45] Risks of opening up your windows on high humidity days

[12:20] How to avoid mold in your showers and bathrooms

[15:31] Improperly installed bathroom appliances can be a breeding ground for mold

[16:45] Home inspections often overlook mold

[17:15] Shawn: We’re looking for things in our inspections that are totally off a home inspector’s radar

[17:45] How to find a good mold inspector/questions to ask

[18:07] Mold inspection shouldn’t take 30 minutes

[18:45] Shawn: Our mold inspections typically take 3-6 hours

[20:00] Finding a company that treats the mold

[20:02] Shawn: It’s a huge conflict of interest for a mold inspection company to also treat the mold problem. It’s actually against the law in Florida, and it requires different licensing

[20:17] Shawn: A mold inspector is in charge of writing a remediation protocol so when a client does hire a remediator, they have something to go off of; it protects the client

[21:17] Mold in rented houses

[22:07] It’s against the law to rent out a home where there is confirmed mold

[23:15] Items can hold mold and need to be thrown out

[23:34] Categories of mold conditions

[24:43] Jess: Which kind of molds do you see the most?

[26:06] Jess: What do you do to prevent mold in your home?

[26:25] Preventing moisture, humidity, and dust in the home

[26:45] Dust high and low at least once a month

[28:22] Getting rid of moisture after water damage

[29:25] Jess: Your team will travel for assessments, correct?

[29:39] Where Certified Mold Assessments will travel

[30:54] Where you can find Certified Mold Assessments on social media

[31:36] Jess: I learn a lot from watching your guys’ instagram stories

[32:26] Shawn: Mold remediation can miss spots, make sure you hire a third party to come in and check their work

[33:30] You get what you pay for; don’t cut corners

[34:57] Shawn shares Certified Mold Assessment’s questionnaires and resources

[36:40] Getting to the root of mold

[16:58] As a parent, you get to walk through hard emotions and moments with your kids

[18:45] Shelby: Do you, as a parent, have ways that help you express your big emotions?

[18:50] Kate: Writing really helps me process my emotions

[20:05] Kate: I like working out, but I’ve had to change the way I exercise after being pregnant

[20:33] Shelby: I’m learning how to sit in silence to identify how I’m feeling

[23:04] Shelby: Tell us about your journal

[36:34] Shelby: If you were to give a word of wisdom to moms in the postpartum period, what would you say?

[36:58] Kate: Take a deep breath and feel your feelings; it’s okay to not be okay

[38:04] Take each day for what it is

[38:25] Shelby: I found that I reached a point where I finally felt confident as a mom; it took time, but I got there

[39:35] Kate: I didn’t let people know I was struggling postpartum. I had to learn to let people in

[41:35] Being confident in your parenting style

[42:17] What works for one child might not work for another

Special Guest Kierstin Cifelli

Welcome to the Rooted Mind Podcast!

Episode #47: Special Guest Kierstin Cifelli

Special guest: Kierstin

Your host: Jess

[0:40] Introduction of Kierstin

[1:10] Jess: How do you root your mind?

[1:18] Kierstin: I always come back to journaling

[3:00] Benefits of brain-dumping

[3:55] AD: U.S. Wellness Meats

[5:00] Jess: Can you share your journey with us?

[5:19] Kierstin shares her story

[5:30] Kierstin: When I was 15 I went on birth control to help control my PMS moodiness

[6:45] Kierstin: I lost some weight in college and lost my period; when I gained the weight back, I got my period back

[7:55] Kierstin: I hired a coach two years later to help train me for a bikini competition; I lost a lot of weight rapidly again and lost my period again

[8:40] Kierstin: I was so happy that I had lost weight and was doing all these competitions that I didn’t care about anything else and I wasn’t listening to my body

[11:08] Kierstin: I finally went off birth control to see if my period would return. It didn’t.

[11:52] Kierstin: I dove into research about getting my period back this past year

[13:09] Kierstin: My OB/GYN told me I wasn’t getting my period because I’m a lean and healthy athlete, but I realized that there’s not a reason that an athlete shouldn’t be getting a period

[14:20] Kierstin: This summer I started demanding more answers so my doctor ordered tests and blood work

[15:30] Kierstin: One of  the nurses told me I probably just had PCOS

[16:15] Kierstin: My doctor suggested hormone replacement therapy because they found that a few hormone levels were low

[16:50] Kierstin: I was listening to a podcast later that same day and there was a guest who had Hypothalamic Amenorrhea. Her story aligned with me 100%

[17:40] Kierstin: I found a book called No Period, Now What? It was everything I needed.

[18:00] Kierstin: I cut out heavy exercise and ate at least 2,500 calories a day. I was scared, I didn’t want to gain weight, but I also wanted to get better, so I went all in

[19:15] Kierstin: Within a month of implementing those changes, I got my period back

[20:41] Jess: What would you tell someone who needs to cut back on exercise? That it’s ok to cut back?

[21:00] Kierstin: I would tell them that they need to read or listen to stories of women that have gone through the same things that you have

[21:45] Kierstin: Reading about women that overcame what I wanted to overcome was so helpful to me

[22:30] AD: Coleman Farms

[23:30] Jess: Are you working out now that you’ve gotten your period back?

[24:00] Kierstin: Since I got my period back so quickly, I figured I was pretty close to being where I needed to be. After I got my second period, I started introducing more exercise. Now, I don’t want to hit the gym more than 4 times a week. I’m just listening to my body. I use my period as a barometer for my health.

[26:20] When you’re not getting a period, you’re more likely to develop osteoporosis and certain cancers

[27:40] Jess: What are the food choices you made when upping your calorie intake?

[28:10] Kierstin: I was kind of all over the place, honestly. For so long I hadn’t allowed myself to eat certain things, so I allowed myself to eat what I wanted for a period of time

[30:45] Kierstin: It was freeing to allow myself to eat what I wanted during that time. There’s more to health than just healthy eating

[31:45] Jess: Where are you at now with the mental side of your journey since you’ve met your physical goals?

[32:20] Jess: It’s still a process. Sometimes I have a hard time looking in the mirror. Other times, I remember that I’m healthy and have energy. I think having the right support is key. I was very vocal on my instagram with my journey, so that helped a lot. Since I had to gain weight to get healthy, it was important to be open and honest with that

[34:50] When you get to a new weight, get new clothes that you feel great in

[36:30] Benefits of not obsessing over weight and image

[38:00] Jess: Did you have any symptoms earlier that you didn’t realize at the time or was it just not getting your period?

[38:34] Kierstin: I think I had so many symptoms for so long that I didn’t even realize they were symptoms. I was tired and had brain-fog. I also had really bad dandruff and an itchy scalp. I was part of an HA group on facebook and found that that was a symptom with others as well.

[41:11] Listen to your symptoms

[41:45] Our body is a complete system

[42:18] Kierstin: HA is not going to just be treated by looking at the reproductive system

[43:48] You’re in health and wellness and have clients, what does your work include?

[44:05] Kierstin: I specialize in helping petite women (under 5’4″) using my Fun-Size-Formula; it’s a wellness practice

[45:20] Jess: Where can our listeners find you?

[45:30] Kierstin: You can find my on instagram at funsize.nutrition  and my website is kierstincifelli.com

[15:00] AD: U.S. Wellness Meats

[17:53] Twila shares her martial arts journey

[20:31] Twila: I’ve been training in jujitsu for about 9 years

[22:27] Shelby: What are some of the benefits of jujitsu?

Episode 37: Fostering Adventures

Welcome to the Rooted Mind Podcast!

Episode 37: Fostering Adventures

Your host: Shelby

Special guest: Emily

 

[0:45] Intro

[1:30] Shelby: How are you rooting your mind?

[1:40] Taking time for yourself as a mom

[2:08] Shelby: Can you tell me about your life and where you’re at with your kids and all that stuff?

[2:35] Emily: I stay home with my kids, they’re all under 3

[3:12] Shelby: What made you decide to start fostering?

[3:30] Emily: We really felt called to foster, we even considered not having biological children at all

[4:31] Shelby: Fostering really helped me grow as a person. I don’t think people realize what they’re missing by not fostering

[5:19] Shelby: Instead of extending judgment on foster cases, you can bring healing for an entire family

[6:25] Emily: With our current foster placement, we’re cheering her bio family on, we’re excited for them to get the help they need so they can get their child back

[7:35] Emily: Fostering is an opportunity to show healthy family habits

[7:45] You can’t make fostering about your own comfort

[9:21] Shelby: our experience was different since we adopted our first placements, but waiting the 18 months with each adoption case was really difficult, not knowing if we were going to have to give them back

[10:54] Not knowing the future of the child is very difficult; all you can do is choose to love them every day you have them

[11:40] Understanding that you can’t control everything, even (and especially) as a parent

[12:23] Shelby: I got a lot of freedom when I realized that I’m not responsible for my kids choices, I’m responsible for teaching them as well as I can

[12:55] AD: U.S. Wellness Meats

[13:55] Shelby: What do you think the hardest thing is about being a mom in general?

[14:20] Taking joy in being a stay-at-home mom

[14:35] Shelby: It was healing for me to realize I don’t have to enjoy every moment of motherhood
