Today’s episode of The Lively Show is extremely powerful, insightful, and so soothing that I have a feeling many people will feel like they’ve had a massage after listening to the show!
I’m talking with Australian life coach, Tara Bliss, about her journey from using drinking and drugs to be the best version of herself, to finding a more peaceful approach to living her life.
Tara details her experiences and advice for others who struggle with this area of life in her book, High: A Party Girl’s Guide To Peace.
(Note: The practices Tara recommends are geared towards those with milder relationships to alcohol and drugs, not specifically serious addictions.)
This episode is perfect for anyone who would like to: hear an honest and inspiring personal story, learn about new ways to approach drinking peacefully, or learn how to connect with a partner who may not be on the same personal growth path as themselves.
