episode 001 | "Recovering to..." with MartinJon Garcia
Recovery Specialist, MartinJon Garcia, talks about the principles and strategies behind what he teaches and the healing that comes as a result.
MartinJon works primarily with those who work with people suffering from addictions.
“So many of us are caregivers today, and I want to help caregivers fight fatigue.
And I feel like the best way to do that is to start ‘recovering to’ something and to understand yourself within that framework.”
He chats about how important it is to take care of yourself first before you can even begin to help others. MartinJon explains how this is a result of what he believes to be fatigue stemming from emotional discord. To help others recover, you first need to recover yourself.
He goes on to delve into the mind programming most of us unconsciously have gone through and MartinJon explains how we all have some type of ‘pacifiers’ that we use as a crutch that can be holding us back from so much.
“But in being checked out, it doesn't actually allow rest. Doesn't actually allow your body to do what it is meant to do, which is heal.”
MartinJon has a revelatory discussion around how we unconsciously create our lives where having a ‘bad day’ is normal enough that we have a go-to “chill out” activity that we need at the end of every work day. This episode is one you don’t want to miss and will leave you questioning your own “why’s” behind why you do what you do and how to recover to something that can bring your best self out to shine.
