Converting to veganism, zero waste, or any other life change can be a big deal. Today I brought back licensed mental health therapist Casey Hill to talk about working through making big shifts in your life. We’re sharing coping skills to make changes easier, why being realistic with yourself is so important, and the idea of ‘holding space’ as a way to work through emotions in the moment. Casey shares her new virtual therapy resource for people who are looking for a community when making a transition to veganism. This episode edges into the LNTS (Life’s Not That Serious) style of episodes.

Mentioned on the Show:
➜Casey’s past episodes on the podcast:
- Overcoming Vegan Sadness: I still get messages about this episode, even 8 months after it originally aired. Many people feel an overwhelming sadness when they learn the reality behind eating other beings. This episode helps you work through the sadness, talking about feeling your feelings.
- Working Through Frustration & Negativity: We’ve all been there when the restaurant you’re at has no options, or your family member refuses to see where you’re coming from, and the frustrations creep in. We discussed using mindfulness and making small changes to make a big difference working through your frustrations in this episode.
