Learn to use mindfulness to live life fully without numbing out 

November 9th- December 28th

Mindful AF

Manage anxiety, stress, burnout and cravings using the power of mindfulness.

When life is a shit storm too often we turn to drinking to deal. 

There's a better way and it's called mindfulness.

First, what is mindfulness?  

A common misconception is that mindfulness is meditation- sitting crisscross applesauce in front of your buddha statue with incense and candles burning. While it’s true mediation is one type of mindfulness it is not the whole picture. 

Mindfulness simply means being in the present moment. So often we are ruminating on the past or anxious about the future. Being mindful allows us to be present to the NOW and accept it without judgement. Mindfulness is all about accepting things as they are and not as we wish they were.  

Often, we find ourselves mindlessly reaching for a drink when we feel stressed, are at a party, or anywhere where drinking cues are. We automatically take a drink and the alcohol does its job- numbing our feelings.

 

Mindfulness gives your brain the space to check in and experience emotions. It lets your brain have space between wanting or craving a drink and actually performing the action of drinking. Often the feeling and craving will pass on their own.  

The concepts and tools in mindfulness take practice. Mindful AF will provide you with the guidance, skills and space to learn this new way of thinking.

About Your Instructor

Hi, I'm Deb Masner 

I’m an alcohol free badass and I help people practice not drinking. I wasn’t always this way, in fact I had many day ones and felt like I was broken because I just couldn’t manage to get my drinking under control.

With lots of practice, patience and mindset changes I worked my way out of the drinking shame spiral and into an alcohol-free life.  

Since I quit drinking, I’ve been studying and practicing mindfulness techniques. I no longer have the crutch of alcohol to turn to when I want to numb out.  

I’m not a monk, guru, or woo hippie gal and I don’t own any magic crystals. I’m a down to earth nurse who has found that using mindfulness tools I can live a better life with less anxiety and stress.  

For the last few years, I’ve been teaching mindfulness skills to nurses and healthcare workers to help them become more resilient and manage burnout. I am super thrilled that I’m now able to offer this program to you.  

More tidbits about me:  

  • Registered Nurse since 2004 

  • Bachelor's Degrees in Psychology and Nursing

Questions You Might Have

How long does this program take to complete? 

This is an 8-week program, starting on November 9th and finishing December 28th to get you through the stress and chaos of the holidays. 

What is the format of Mindful AF? 

The content of Mindful AF will be hosted in my private platform, Practice Better. There will be a live one hour online session each Wednesday at 6pm Mountain Standard Time. These sessions will be recorded and available for replay. 

How much time do I need to complete the homework exercises? What will that look like? 

The "homework" and exercises are optional. If you want to get the most out of mindfulness though I recommend practicing  about 15–30 minutes a day.  Different types of exercises include formal meditation and more informal daily practices. 

I’ve tried meditation before and I’m not very good at it. How do I know that this program will be different? 

A common misconception is that mindfulness is meditation- sitting crisscross applesauce in front of your buddha statue with incense and candles burning. While it’s true mediation is one type of mindfulness it is not the whole picture. 

Mindfulness simply means being in the present moment. So often we are ruminating on the past or anxious about the future. Being mindful allows us to be present to the NOW and accept it without judgement. 

At its core, mindfulness is about starting over again and again. Even if you feel like you’re not making ‘progress,’ if you have patience and try to practice regularly to the best of your ability, your efforts will pay off. In this program, we’ll approach mindfulness in a way that addresses all of tools of mindfulness not just meditation.

Is this a quit drinking program? 

Mindful AF is for anyone who wants to use the tools of mindfulness to manage their thinking and navigate life more smoothly. Since I specialize in helping people change their drinking, I do share how these tools can help you in your alcohol-free journey. However, this is a broader picture of mindfulness itself and can be applied to all aspects of your life, not just drinking. 

Are the resources in Mindful AF based on scientific evidence? 

Yes. Over 3,000 peer-reviewed research studies have validated the benefits of mindfulness, and we have made sure that everything in this program is underpinned by rigorous science and references.
