I try to drink it out of me. I tried to fight it out in me. I tried to run from make, ignore it. I tried to do all the thing is I I could do to get rid of it. Um, and then the last 10 years I’ve changed my perspective of it and I got to the root of the matter.
It became, I became the anxiety. It was interesting for me and most people do this a lot. As I became the one thing I hated, right. I the anxiety, but my whole identity was caught up in the anxiety.
And what I found, um, in that journey was everybody wanted to show me how to treat the anxiety for me. It was only maintaining it, right? That was only, I was only treating the symptoms. I was only treating the manifestations.
That’s when things really start to get...
Today we have the pleasure of introducing Ashley James to our Fitlandia podcast! Ashley is a massage therapist, Reiki Master, a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) master practitioner and trainer, and does Time Line Therapy Hypnosis and Coaching. In addition to all this, Ashley is the bubbly podcast host of Learn True Health, where she interviews holistic health experts and doctors of Naturopathic medicine.
As a reformed dieter herself, Ashley says she spent her time beating herself up about her weight until she concluded that, “Diets don’t work because they go against our physiology.” As humans, for much of our history, we were hunter and gathers and now we’re supposed to cut our calories?

After many years of stressing over her weight,...

She left the appointment feeling relieved, refreshed, grounded and peaceful. She’d started the appointment saying she didn’t even want to get out of the car, and left feeling gratitude for having come in.
I’d like to share the breathing exercise I led her through in hopes that this process will help you all...
When I explain what Fitlandia is all about, I keep using the phrase “subconscious fitness” with friends, family, clients, etc. It’s really the only way I can describe what makes Fitlandia different - in a nutshell. The whole idea is that you work from a foundation of having a healthy mind to generate a healthy body. But it’s not just at the conscious level, but the subconscious. For some that’s a brand-new term so I’ll first define it.
Merriam-Webster defines the subconscious as, “existing in the mind but not immediately available to consciousness.” Dictionary.com defines it as, “the totality of mental processes of which the individual is not aware; unreportable mental activities.”
Fitlandia describes it as “the thoughts, patterns, values, and drivers of behavior that are deep within the mind, not...
