Addiction is not the problem, it's the result of not knowing how to access a safe place within – and a lot of that has to do with regulating your emotions. When you don’t have the toolbox for emotional regulation, that’s when addiction starts to arise. You start to feel this void and so you fill it up with food, drugs, alcohol, or something detrimental to your health and well-being.

Learn how to equip yourself with the right tools and techniques to help you on this journey to finding peace and calmness so you can finally manifest your vision of a fresh start. On today’s episode, Duane speaks with wellness and stress management coach, Edwige Gilbert Blade.

Edwige is the founder of New Life Directions and the author of The Fresh Start Promise: 28 Days to Total Mind, Body, Spirit Transformation. She has over 30 years of experience working with individuals and groups and conducting seminars, retreats, and lectures around the world. Her forte is teaching people how to transform stress into success, clear unwanted habits, and live healthier and happier lives.

Edwige holds certifications in neurolinguistic programming, NLP hypnotherapy, substance abuse counseling, behavioral change yoga, and Qigong. Today, she shares her wisdom, knowledge, and experience of how we can change our situation by using the power of the mind from a centered space so we can create new possibilities.
