Ep 33: Disconnecting from Technology to Connect with Yourself & Others

Today's technology is amazing, but I believe the constant distraction of texts, emails, and social media can sometimes prevent us from connecting with ourselves and others. This week's radio show is a deep dive into my how my phone and laptop were affecting my mental and physical health in not so pleasant ways. I also share some practical tips that have allowed me to create disconnection time for myself and that may help if you are feeling overwhelmed and overstimulated by your devices.

Are you curious about leading a more holistic lifestyle? Have you felt overwhelmed when trying to make changes to improve your health and given up in the past? As someone with a six-year career as a Registered Dietitian prior to becoming a massage therapist and owner of Serenity Now Massage Therapy, I have always cared about health.

Ep 29: Taking Down Masks & Walls to Let Love In

It’s been laid on my heart from some recent experiences that it was time to do a solo show and share my thoughts on the masks and walls we put up as protective mechanisms. Sometimes these "protectors" can ultimately block the love and good in our lives. I discuss the importance of letting our guards down with the right people and some tips on how to let others in.

Mike Mooney is the author of Reputation Shift and a Sports Engagement Veteran with multiple senior executive motorsports positions. He has successfully transitioned into the entrepreneurial world of keynote speaking, leadership workshops, and branding and didn’t pull his hair out in the process.
