How to Determine if Your Life is Well-Balanced

Welcome to Catching Your Breath: The Podcast, episode number 64. I’m your host, Steve Austin, and I’m so glad you’re here today. If you listen to this episode in its entirety, you’ll learn how to determine if your life is well-balanced, plus I’ll teach you 25 practical ways to find balance. And at the end of today’s episode, I’ll lead you in a guided breath prayer: a simple way to center yourself, even on the most chaotic of days.

 

Before we dive into that, I want to say thanks for listening. There are a gazillion life coaches you could be listening to, but you’ve chosen to hang out with me for the next half hour, and that means a lot to me.

 

If you haven’t left an iTunes review, would you take a couple of minutes to do that now?

 

And please don’t forget about my book, Catching Your Breath. You can snag a copy today on Amazon, and join me on the sacred journey from chaos to calm.

A quick personal update: I’ve nearly completed my second manuscript of the year, Slow Miracles: 99 Doses of Hope and Healing, which will release next Fall with Broadleaf Books. As a result, I’ll be returning to the podcast more often. And I’d love to know what topics would be helpful to you these days. Also - what guests would you like to hear from on this show? Do you have a favorite author, teacher, pastor, or coach who would be a perfect fit for my podcast? Shoot me a quick email at steve@iamsteveaustin.com and I’ll get to work creating new content!

Is your church a place of healing or shame?

This bonus episode is from a sermon I delivered at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Birmingham on Sunday, August 2nd.

The Power of Non-Judgmental Presence

Welcome to Catching Your Breath: The Podcast, Episode 63.

Today we’re discussing the power of non-judgmental presence. How can co-suffering with hurting people change everything? These notes are the bits and pieces that didn’t make it into my upcoming book with Fortress Press, but because I’m so passionate about this topic, I just couldn’t scrap them. So, I’m sharing them with you today.

How to Be at Home with Yourself

Welcome back to Catching Your Breath: The Podcast, with Steve Austin.

In her book, From Longing to Belonging, Shelly Christensen says, “The Spirit of Belonging is based on relationships and conversations when participants share what is important to them.”

Well, how can you share what’s important to you, if you don’t know what’s important to you?

And how can you share what’s important with you, if shame is telling you to shut up, that your goals, dreams, and wounds don’t matter?

If you listen to this episode in its entirety, you will discover:

  1. 7 Ways to Embrace Your Individuality
  2. 6 Benefits of Embracing Your Quirky Side
  3. 8 Steps to Embracing Your Quirky Side

Do You Long to Unclutter Your Soul?

​Is your soul cluttered and your image of God unclear? Are you desperate to rebuild your self-worth?

It can be tough, trying to reconcile our wounds, hopes, and what we believe about God. I know how scary that can feel.
