Eating disorders, heartbreak, breakups, and breakdowns. Navigating the inner storm with Erin Monson.
Play • 1 hr

This week on Holy Sh!t We’re Alive we’re talking to Erin Monson.

Now here’s the thing about Erin… Erin and I used to date and we were almost engaged. If you know my story, you know that when my relationship with Erin ended, that was the start of some major self-work in my world…

In this episode, Erin shares her journey of battling an eating disorder for a good part of her life.

It started when her college tennis career ended and she found herself in the middle of a good old-fashioned identity crisis.

“Who am I? What makes me happy? What should I be doing to make a living?”

All of these feelings of uncertainty and LACK of control drove Erin to find control in her life.

She learned that she could have control over how she ate.

This turned into an eating disorder and body dysmorphia that came and went through different relationships and life events…

This is when our stories collide and we found ourselves BOTH seeking external validation from the other person and that turned into a beautiful mess.

Erin shares her story of hitting rock bottom and realizing that she didn’t need to have complete control to live a happy life.

I love Erin’s approach to finding balance and happiness because she is REALLY good at the little things. She talks about finding happiness through breathwork, and journaling, and just BEING.

Erin has an amazing business coaching men and women to feel better physically and learn to love themselves along the way.
