Gray Area Drinking with Jolene Park and Club Soda
March 30, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
We’re all familiar with the rock-bottom kind of drinking that ruins too many lives, and on the other end of the spectrum, there are those who never or rarely drink. If you fall in between those two extremes, you might identify as a gray area drinker.
So, what do you do if you want to make a change and stop drinking in the gray area?
Join Club Soda, the mindful drinking movement, and Jolene Park, a US health coach and TEDx speaker well known for her work on “gray area drinking”, for an interactive afternoon workshop on brain chemistry and cravings. Drawing from Jolene’s expertise in functional nutrition, we will give you the practical tools to build your inner resilience and nourish your nervous system in a comprehensive and consistent way, so you can create new habits, connections and routines as a non-drinker in an alcohol-centric world.
You’ll also learn about:
the biochemical components of cravings — the role neurotransmitters, blood sugar balance, hormone imbalances, pyroluria and histamine disorder play in cravings
how to effectively work with the fight/flight/freeze emotional stress response
tips and techniques to use when navigating the energetic stumbling blocks that happen from drinking too much
why the gut/brain connection, attachment patterns and early adversity is relevant and important when overcoming “gray area drinking”
step-by-step guidelines for insomnia, anxiety, weight gain and sugar cravings
and habit hacking – how to tame your animal brain and move past self-sabotage patterns that keep you stuck.
