Want to try acupressure? Listen to this interview with Kyla Plaxton of Release Acupressure, where she leads me through a simple headache-relieving move that you can try right now.
We all have the capacity to heal others in some way. Whether you make people laugh, provide medicine or help people deal with their inner demons, it starts with making yourself available to other people emotionally. Kyla Plaxton is someone who’s tapped into her inner healer in a profound way.
Kyla Plaxton is an acupressurist on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. She’s one of those people who makes you feel immediately comfortable and open when you meet her. As someone who doesn’t easily open up to people, I felt compelled to let down my guard when I talked to her recently. That’s because she doesn’t hold back. It takes real courage and strength, I believe, to be real and emotionally available to other people.
In this episode of the Own Up Grown-Up podcast, Kyla and I talk about her journey to self-healing and motherhood, and how a random opportunity paved the way for her to find her calling.
Canadians and Americans tie for third worst sleepers worldwide. Are you one of them?
I have been. I’ve had nights where I wake up dripping sweat, nights where I can’t get to sleep because my mind won’t shut down, nights where I wake up three hours before my alarm goes off and can’t get back to sleep.
I didn’t think it was bad. I thought it was normal. And then I spent a week away on a little Canadian island and I slept. Hard. I woke up every morning refreshed, energized—I didn’t even want coffee! I was able to focus on work, I felt calm, and I wanted to run everywhere I went.
And then I went home and I hardly slept for a week…and another week. What gives? Find out more in this Own Up Grown-Up podcast episode.
