Stepping out of your comfort zone and into a state of the unknown can be frightening. This past weekend I spent 3 days in a room, vulnerable and open to learning how to be the best speaker I can be. It was scary, I stepped outside of my comfort zone and learned a thing or two about making my message stronger. The reason I bring this up is that I got to interview Beth Olsen of Deep Health Now. The reason I was so thrilled to bring her on the show was that she is passionate about extreme sports and has been doing things like skiing since 1 years old. I was blown away by her comfort with these types of things and wanted to learn more about how she removes fear away from things like jumping out of planes and how these tips can be applied to our day to day life.
The tips she suggests, the stories she tells and her ability to make something like jumping out of a plane seem effortless excited me in so many ways. As I stepped into that room on Friday I thought of Beth and all the things she has done in her life and even thought about the time she was stranded in a snow storm alone with her dog and how stepping into an air-conditioned room with water and food wasn’t so scary after all.
I know you will thoroughly enjoy this episode and learn how to look at fear a bit differently.

Learn More About Beth Olson:
I believe our intentions shape our outcomes, our habits rule our behavior and all of that can change the world if we become accountable for our own personal mental and physical health and consumption. Not so fast, eh. So, I’ve made some changes in my health, by life, my mind, through the habits I inhabit….my patterns, the wakes I leave behind. This is why I’m here. To keep negotiating.
It’s about inhabiting the body you’re in. As a sponsored Cat 1 mountain biker, diving coach, yoga school dropout, trauma yoga teacher, and certified health and wellness coach, I thrive on not competing in most of my favorite things I do: skiing, climbing, surfing, mountaineering, yoga, and meditation. I did compete in dance, gymnastics, skiing, track, ice-skating, swimming, and tennis and sailing; I’ve raced regattas in Venezuela, ice climbed in the Cascades, scuba dived with sharks, skied in Slovenia and skydived. I believe in the art of play. And being clear about why we do what we do. From an early age, my brain wrapped itself around a dance of movement and speed, adaptation and balance. I am interested in learning as much as possible about how the body and mind move in tandem through the elements of nature. Getting into your body and mind. Figuring them out.
I’m a mom and coach, an artist and designer; inhabiting ALL of the hats is good. The juggling act is a luxury, not a burden. I know life is a craft that is continuously changing form, asking us to solve problems, find new questions, and adapt and be curious. From within and under these hats, I am also a Danish Viking.
