What does SOBERFITCHICK mean?
Living an alcohol-free lifestyle is so much more than the word "sober" implies. It's about embracing a state of mind that opens up endless possibilities for personal growth, deeper connections, and true joy. When we choose to live sober, we are choosing to live our lives with intention and purpose. We're no longer numbing ourselves to the challenges of life, but instead, we're embracing them head-on and learning from them.
Living sober also means experiencing life with a new level of clarity and authenticity. We're no longer hiding behind a mask of alcohol, but instead, we're showing up as our true selves, flaws and all. This newfound authenticity leads to deeper connections with others and a more fulfilling life. So if you're considering a life without alcohol, know that it's not just about abstaining from a substance - it's about unlocking the true potential of who you are and who you can become.
“FIT” has a number of different meanings for me:
As I mentioned in my story I started drinking alcohol to “fit in” and calm social anxieties. Many of my behaviors and actions while drinking were driven by a desire to fit in. I used alcohol to “loosen up” & feel less insecure in social situations…eventually taking on more of a party girl persona fueled by alcohol. Now I no longer feel that way. I am at peace & happy with myself & don't feel the need to compromise myself by engaging in unhealthy behaviors to fit in.
I love working out and challenging my body in ways that are good for me however I was fooling myself by not acknowledging the harm alcohol was actually doing to my body. The alcohol industry lobbies very hard and pays incredible amounts of money to have “drink responsibly” placed on an addictive substance…..there is no other addictive substance that benefits from this type of coverup marketing!
Mental Fitness is a crucial element of my philosophy at Soberfitchick. I know this because I used alcohol for years as a means of coping with negative emotions and social anxiety, but it only made things worse. If you're struggling with depression, anxiety, or other mood disorders, there is a strong correlation between alcohol consumption and these mental health issues.
Alcohol is a depressant that slows down the central nervous system and can significantly impact your mood and emotions. If you're already struggling with depression and anxiety, alcohol can add fuel to the fire.
Through coaching, I focus on helping you develop practical tools and techniques for breaking down your limiting beliefs and managing your emotions and stress without relying on alcohol. I believe that by improving your mental fitness, you can not only overcome your struggles with alcohol but also enhance your overall quality of life. With the right support and guidance, you can learn to cultivate emotional resilience and develop healthy coping mechanisms that will help you navigate life's challenges with greater ease and grace.
It's important to note that while I can provide guidance and support in improving mental fitness and reducing alcohol consumption, I am not a medical professional and do not claim to treat any medical conditions, including depression or anxiety. It's important to always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider for any medical concerns.
My faith in God has always been very important to me! Yet when I was drinking alcohol, I was hiding myself from others and God. I was too full of shame and regret -I felt so stuck because I couldn't seem to “drink responsibly”. Without alcohol I can feel more connected to God and my purposes in life. I now also have the energy and desire to follow through on those goals and purposes such as helping others find freedom from alcohol in a safe, supportive and non judgmental way!
To me Chick is a woman who likes to have fun, who lives intentionally & is emotionally present for all areas of life!"
