Discovering Key Tools & Techniques to Thrive at Life with Thriving Life Collective’s Meredith Dawson
Episode 28: Show Notes.
Shortly after Meredith Dawson became a mom, she also became a single mom. She realized that she desperately needed resources to deal with the stress, overwhelm, and trauma that she was faced with, and this led her to develop an entire tool kit of resources to help her cope and ultimately thrive. As a childhood educator and mother, Meredith felt compelled to be more than a teacher and left the classroom to have a greater impact on her community by using these tools to help support teachers and families. Today, she joins us to talk about her business the Thriving Life Collective and how she is equipping people with key tools and techniques through a range of wellbeing practices. Meredith explains the importance of breathwork to be able to process the emotional messages in our bodies and explains some of the other resources she utilizes, including essential oils, meditation and mindful movement. She educates us about tapping, a technique where you can stimulate a physiological effect on your nervous system by tapping on different pressure points in your body to reset your energy centre. For helpful tips on how you too can thrive physically and emotionally, tune in today!

“I like to say that I’m a mom and an educator and a well-being warrior, but really I’m just a human who’s striving to thrive, like we all are, right?” — Meredith Dawson [0:03:36]
It really, for me, comes back to that ability to connect with breath, because when we connect with our breath, we create space to be able to process emotions and process those emotional messages in our body that can really get mixed up in our heads.” — Meredith Dawson [0:05:50]
“What if everything within us was for us, for our own well-being, and it was the overflow that went to other people?” — Meredith Dawson [0:28:47]
