My guest this week is Host of Real Deal Recovery Podcast, Stephen Girard!  Stephen & I discuss actionable life-hacks for building self-esteem.

Stephen has been in recovery since the age of 22 (1984), and has been clean and sober over 32 years. While he received the gift of recovery at an early age, it wasn’t without years of serious unmanageability and painful consequences along the way.

He has been a professional musician since 1976, and has performed on over 20 recordings, and has toured throughout Europe, Japan, and the United States.

He is active in recovery circles, and is a sober coach and consultant, along with hosting a topic-based podcast: Real Deal Recovery.

Stephen has also been a music educator for over 25 years, and for the last ten years has been using rhythms to teach reading, writing, and arithmetic to special needs teens and adults.

A former Buddhist forest monk (Thailand), he is an advocate of meditation and of practicing the twelve steps to achieve physical and emotional recovery.

Stephen currently resides in New York City.

Self-Esteem Resources:

Be as honest as you are capable as being.

Self-Esteem Improves with Self Care:

  • HALT – Don’t get too Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired.  When you address these areas you are more emotionally centered.
  • Clean & Organized
