S2: EP 11 – Pleasure: Why Are We So Afraid Of It?

Living Fully Alive Podcast available on Apple Podcast, Google Podcast, Spotify, and Youtube


Life tells us we have to work harder, hustle, and have more will power in order to change ourselves and have the life we want…

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but that belief usually creates a dangerous cycle: Repress, fail, feel-like-crap, and then start the whole thing again…. Yuck!

No wonder so many of us feel burnout, defeat and shame about ourselves!?

What you really need more of in your life is pleasure!

Does the word “pleasure” make you feeling uncomfortable? awkward? maybe even afraid?

This month we’re talking about PLEASURE : what it is, why it’s important and how to create more of in your life!

In today’s episode, Lindsley and I explore the shadow side to pleasure – the fear around it and the effects of what happens when you are pleasure deficient in your life!

We dive deep into this taboo subject and get super vulnerable! You won’t want to miss this conversation!

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Symptoms of pleasure deficiency

  • Why we resist and block ourselves from experiencing pleasure out of self protection.

  • What truly drives us to over indulge!?

  • The brain connection between pain and pleasure and how that connects to a pleasurable life.

  • Different ideas for bringing more play, freedom, and curiosity into your life!

  • Why pleasure isn’t just about sex and spending money or eating fabulous dessert – it can be found in the small savory moments too!

  • And so much more!!


Each month will be a deep dive into a topic that supports you on your journey to living more fully alive. September’s topic will be on PLEASURE. Make sure to check out all the episodes from this month’s topic.
