Welcome to Curious on Life
with Rebecca Guevara Wingler
Hi, I'm Rebecca, I am a Mother, Grandmother, Artist and a Life Style Coach.
The Covid 19 pandemic has been a trying time for everyone and we have had to learn new ways of existing and relating. Perhaps a new path.
I know I did.
Here is some of my story.....
As a visual artist, any art show that I had been preparing for, suddenly shutdown with no idea when the opportunity for a live show might present itself in the future.
I continued to paint and create but also found myself drinking more and more of my beloved red wine.
I loved my daily wine in the evenings and with dinner and with, well everything! I thought I deserved it, didn't it relax me?
in 2018 while having a glass of wine on a flight, I came across a quote by Annie Grace, something like "Do you want to make alcohol small and irrelevant in your life?" It piqued my curiosity, and remained with me.
During the first few months of quarantine, the spring 2020, I was questioning my daily intake again. I joined an online community, 30 day break, The Alcohol Experiment, with daily inspiration and information No judgement around it just an experiment. 30 days later, my energy was on fire! I was clearer and lighter.
So....... thinking I had this covered, I returned to my "glass of wine" tradition, and within 3 months I was back to my old routine. At 5pm open a bottle to begin cooking, and then a glass or two over dinner and by the end of most evenings, most if not all of it was gone! At home quarantined, it was so easy to do. I wasn't even getting the same buzz anymore! I wasn't as creative and I was feeling bloated and low energy. What was happening?
As the months passed I felt something needed to change, after all hadn't I been a wellness seeker?
My goal was to moderate so I could feel better and still have my wine!
Quarantined, I shifted my time between painting and researching.
I was learning so much about my changing body and my brain and what was happening to make me feel what I was feeling. I wondered why I was driven to have wine each night. Habit? Boredom?
I was fascinated, and I went on a journey
Fast forward 9 months later.
I am creating something that marries Life Coaching with Art. For me they go hand in hand. I funneled my energy in study and learning, and am now a This Naked Mind Institute Certified Coach.
Annie Grace and her take on our drinking culture, changed my life. Why am I sharing this?
I want to pay it forward.
As a Life Style Coach, my desire is to make space for anyone curious about change and make it okay to question how much you are drinking. We care about other things we put in our bodies why not alcohol? No stigma, no shame, just curiosity.
The truth is I have the freedom to drink when ever and as much as I want to, I just don't have the same desire to. The last time I sat down to have a glass of wine or 2 or 4 was December 2020, I would never have believed that a year ago.
This science based methodology continues changing lives because it is effective with behaviors and habits we want to make "small and irrelevant" in life.
Are you curious about aging and living your best life in a creative and healthy way? Do you care about your well being and your mind, body, soul connection?
Perhaps you think about changing your relationship with alcohol and want to moderate or quit altogether? Is it possible to finally sleep better? Have greater energy for the people and things that are important and matter?
Moving on with intention, creativity, and grace, we can navigate together to create your next chapter in life.
There is always only moving forward.
Lets talk and answer questions you may have.
