Michelle and Cavin interview Dr. Alessandra Wall, a licensed clinical psychologist, coach, speaker and entrepreneur. She is the founder of Life in Focus Coaching, a lifestyle strategy practice, which is based out of San Diego California.
Dr. Wall works with busy, driven and successful people, who want to wake up and feel excited by their everyday. In this interview we adapt her methodology to what it means to be a successful survivor/adventurer and explore how beneficial it is to slow down, check in, focus on needs that are current, and make choices that are right for us. Using these approaches, we can build systems to create a better everyday and to feel inspired by life again.
(You can also hear this episode on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, and almost every other podcast network!)
We talk about a few things that Dr. Wall is incredibly passionate about:
1) Slowing down.
Alessandra understands that living busy and hurried in an overstimulating world only contributes to confusion, stress, and feeling constantly overbooked and underwhelmed in life.
2) Choosing what’s right for you.
Dr. Wall knows that when we start thinking about who we are, and make choices that reflect our needs and values then we set ourselves up to live a far more balanced and fulfilling life.
3) Pushing yourself to act and do the things that make your heart sing.
For Dr. Wall, that includes practicing parkour, building Life in Focus Coaching to be a global company, and teaching her kids to stay still, be resilient and marvel at the small moments of bliss in life.

Thank you for this podcast! Shortly after my TBI & the Great Unravelling that followed, I realized that I needed to learn a new relationship with myself and how to live or I wouldn’t survive. All the ideas and concepts that Dr. Wall talks about have been really helpful for me personally.
I’d like to recommend another resource. The Foundations of Well-Being program (https://www.thefoundationsofwellbeing.com/). It’s a self-paced program developed by Rick Hanson, PhD, a neuropsychologist and happiness researcher. I can’t say enough good things about the program and I encourage everyone to check it out. Also, the program does offer scholarships if you’re unable to afford the cost (I think its about $300-400 dollars for 2 years of access).
