My name is Jodi Watkins, and I am a recovering addict.

In my life, I have been addicted to overanalyzing, stubbornness, seeking pleasure from the wrong people, self-sabotage, suppression, drama, and people-pleasing to the point I could no longer function. Everything was falling apart all at once. The addictions left me hurting and feeling alone with no way out.

While I may have looked fine on the outside, I was crumbling on the inside. The problem with beginning a healing journey is we often don't know where to begin. This was the case for me. This is why I finally sought help. 

I am here to tell you that healing is necessary for addiction recovery. Healing lessens misery. We must remove the mask and begin this process to become fulfilled and receive the blessings God wants to give us. I will not tell you healing is easy. I will not tell you learning to love yourself is easy. I will not tell you that forgiveness of self and others is easy. I'd be lying. I will tell you the journey is necessary. I don't want to see you crumble. It would be best if you didn't have to get where I was before I finally submitted it. I want to be that person to lift you when you need it the most.

This life is no sprint. There is no fast track to get to the finish line.                           

We must embrace each moment.

We must work our faith muscles and practice self-care first thing in the morning.

Here, you will learn to stay balanced instead of stressed and let go of things we can't change.

Our biggest enemy in life is us. We can hold ourselves back from anything significant.

Once we let go of pride and realize we are worthy, we become more willing to allow ourselves to manifest what we desire. We begin to live more intentionally. It becomes more about those around us instead of woe is me. This life is one that we truly must embrace. I am here to help you learn the steps to embrace it.

Thank you for being here. Now, let's begin the journey you were always meant to be on.

You will see that you can click the buttons for "Blog," "Experiences," "Announcements, "Groups," etc.

Chapter 6 is critical - Staying Consistent! When life happens, do we quit, or do we adjust? Do we stop caring for ourselves? NO!

Sharing our stories not only helps us heal but also helps others who may be experiencing some hard times and need to know they are not alone. When we can be vulnerable, we can lead better and more effectively. People will WANT to follow us. They won't feel forced. 

I am looking forward to building this community more with you!

The Unforced Pathway to Sound Leadership
Unforced leadership strategies involve leading by example, fostering authentic relationships, and empowering others through positive influence rather than authoritative control. These strategies prioritize collaboration, active listening, and empathy to create an environment where individuals willingly follow due to the leader's credibility, values, and ability to inspire. Unforced leaders leverage their expertise and emotional intelligence to guide teams effectively, cultivating a culture of trust, innovation, and mutual respect. Ask questions on the "Discussion Board" and interact with me!

Setting the Stage for 2022 - Final Call for 2021
A goal without a plan is just a wish. Let's stop wishing and let's make 2022 our year!
Week 1 of 2022 - Why Crunches Don’t Get You Abs: Dispelling Myths with Facts
Welcome to 2022! Let's make sure we don't let another year go by where our dreams and goals aren't being accomplished! This experience talks about a myth involving crunches and why they actually aren't going to help anyone lose body fat. It takes a whole lot more to rid our bodies of total body fat and we can't "spot check" with our bodies! I am here to provide you with everything I have ever learned!
Week 3 of 2022 - Beginning an Exercise Program and Sticking to It
This experience not only gives you tips on how to begin an exercise program, but also how to continue when "life happens." These tips don't just apply here. They can be used with ANYTHING in our lives! Always remember the why and never quit! Keep commitments to yourself no matter what! You got this and I am here to help you continue! Let's build out this group and support and encourage one another! Thank you for being here!
Week 4 - Establishing Better Eating Habits
This call goes over some tips to establish better eating habits. It all starts with the mind. If we become intentional, we can literally accomplish anything. We just have to want to accomplish it. Once we make the decision, we can do a whole lot more and go a whole lot further than ever before.
Why Flexible Eating Plans Are Sustainable
Which option BEST describes the characteristic(s) of a high-quality nutrition plan? The answer is simple: A nutrition plan should be flexible, based on person's needs and goals

Natural Immunity
Building our immune systems, especially in this day and age, revolves around thoroughly researched studies and making informed decisions. I became more passionate about immunity in 2007, after my mom passed from a common bacterial infection after contracting HIV (which turned into AIDS in the end). During the time I was taking care of her (she also had Multiple Sclerosis, Hyperthyroidism, and was found to have bipolar disorder), I took many courses to learn how to use more natural approaches to her overall care. The multiple prescriptions were really affecting her physically and psychologically. Therefore, I made it my personal mission to learn what I could. Fast forward, 2017, my daughter was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). I began to learn how nutrition played a part in this as well. In 2019, I read case studies on a company called Juice Plus. I couldn't believe how simple it could be to boost our immune systems naturally just by adding in more fruits and vegetables. Therefore, I became a distributor for the company. Then, in 2020, we were introduced to a new strand of the SARS virus they called Covid-19. The thing about viruses (as we have learned from the flu) is they mutate however needed to infect the host (person). As we (people) came up with ways to supposedly combat the virus, we actually made it worse. We used cleansers such as Lysol and bleach that have been found to have a negative effect on the lungs. Depleting our lungs is what Covid thrived on even more. We also used more hand sanitizer. We began doing more to lessen our immunity. We focused more on human creations than natural resources. As we continue through this "pandemic," it is super important for us to focus on natural ways to boost our immunity. In this experience, you will read about Juice Plus and read peer-reviewed studies. I will also share my experiences and what I use to combat things in our house. Join me to learn about holistic immunity.
Letting Go of Yesterday
"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past." - Isaiah 43:18 No matter where our paths have taken us before, it doesn't have to be where we go now. We have the power to shift and create what we desire. We just have to be willing to face ourselves, learn, and grow each day more and more. We have to be willing to put things into practice that may help us become better versions of ourselves. We ultimately have to be willing to let go of blame and shame. We learn from our experiences and we move on. It's as simple as that. Thank you for being here and I hope you will want to share this with everyone you know!
Topic: NUTRITION 101 - K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple and Stress-Free)
Tonight, we went over the following: 1) Food Intake 2) Diary Tracking 3) Drink Water 4) Consistency Have you ever thought about what you were going to eat before you ate it? How difficult would it be to plan your meals out beforehand? How much water do you drink? How much SHOULD you drink? According to research, it takes at least 10 consistent weeks to form a new habit as part of a daily routine. Why is this important to consider during your journey? Because YOU are important!
Being Intentional - Get a Planner!
Remember that not every day will be a great day. You will have days where you have to force yourself to get going. However, take it from me, those are the days where you need to exercise even more. You will feel so much better. Otherwise, you may go through the day blaming yourself and just having a bad day all around.
15 Things We Spend Money On Besides Our Health
When we say, “I can’t afford…,” what we are really saying is that we would rather spend our money on something else. We place value on material things, but we are very careful when it comes to investing in ourselves. Why is that?

Breaking News: There Is No Magic Pill in Life
This experience is to share information that has led me to be more passionate about sharing science-backed information in order to achieve our goals.

It's time to stop wasting your time and money and become patient in learning and patient in the process. It's a journey! You just have to be willing to continue it and create lasting results!

Begin Where You Are
Hi everyone! As I say everyday, it doesn't matter where we begin when we are working towards a new goal. All that matters is that we do, in fact, begin. Depending on where we all are in our journeys, we could need to simply drink more water. Maybe we need to get more intense. Maybe we need to move more. Maybe we need to stop sitting so much. Maybe, just maybe we need to simply just begin. Today, we are doing just that. This is the beginning. We don't wait on perfect circumstances. We don't wait for perfect conditions. We shift as needed and we continue the process of becoming a better version of ourselves (with effort) each and every day. Thank you for being here!
Weekly Wins and Kinesiology Tape - Providing Education and Strategy

Make sure you go to the Announcements page to get the Zoom link! These videos will also be recorded and entered into the group as Experiences. Convene allows us to share experiences and come together with purpose! Join in!
Let Go, Drink Water, and Get Moving
Today, we talked about how to begin the journey. Everyone is on a journey. It may look a little different, but we are all on it. This week's call discussed letting go of regret, walking 4 times per week for 20-30 minutes, and drinking water. This is where we have to begin. We have to let go of our limiting beliefs. We have to be willing to accept compliments. We have to allow ourselves to let go of the past in order to truly appreciate the future. It starts here. Thank you to Brian and Jodi for joining me tonight and for allowing me to be a part of their journeys. Together we rise! Together, we can do more! It's about encouraging, supporting, and empowering each other to get to the next level! To invite others to join the Wellness Accountability Group inside Convene Communities, have them go to
Weekly Experiences - 3/3/22
There is nothing in life we can't do once we BELIEVE we can do them. The only person we have to convince is ourselves.
Discipline Must Take Over When Motivation Fails Us...and Motivation WILL Fail Us
This week, we talked about weekly wins and the importance of allowing our why to be what brings us through each day. We must lead everything we do with passion. This keep our minds from being able to take us out. It keeps us from giving up. It keeps us from not being able to reach our goals. Discipline must take over. Motivation will fail us 100% of the time. Great talk tonight! Make sure you join in the discussion!
How to Start Tracking Your Foods for Beginners
One of the main reasons keeping a food diary is so useful is people aren’t great at remembering or estimating what and how much they’ve eaten. When you aren't keeping track of your food intake, it can be easy to overeat and often takes longer to reach your goals. In fact, research shows keeping a food diary is one of the most effective weight-loss strategies out there. Tracking consistently is proven to help you reach your goals. It helps you be more mindful of what and how much you’re taking in and how it all affects your body. The more you practice this new habit, the better able you are to become disciplined and improve your health long-term. Nutrition has to be sustainable, a lifestyle, and be a priority in your life. This is the only way you will stick to it. My goal is to do whatever I can to help you stick to it! One day at a time. It's a marathon, not a sprint, and over time, it will all get easier. I am proof of this. Be willing to take the first step and see what can happen once you become consistent. If you have any questions, make sure you use the "Discussion Board" to ask them.

Overcoming Anxiety - 4/18/22 Live Call
This experience is to provide Tips to Help You Have a More Productive and Less Stressed Day. I have learned these things through sheer experience, so everything I share here are tools I must use daily also. Let me know what you think! Make sure you engage in the discussion board!
Say Yes to Happiness, Say No to Overwhelm - People Pleasers Beware
Are you a people pleaser? Merriam-Webster defines this as “someone or something that pleases or wants to please people; often: a person who has an emotional need to please others often at the expense of his or her own needs or desires” ( I am habitually a people pleaser. Moreover, I will often sacrifice my and my family's well-being to help or “please” others. I want to be liked. I want to feel like I have a purpose. I am searching for something that I have been missing. If this sounds familiar, I encourage you to take this experience.

Busy Versus Productive

Protein is King
This experience gives you recipes that will help you reach your protein goals. Why is protein essential? Protein is the build-up of amino acids in the body. It is an ESSENTIAL macronutrient the body must have to function correctly. It helps with brain function, hormonal balance, and immunity! Every cell in the human body is made up of protein. Did you know that? EVERY SINGLE CELL. We have millions of cells in our bodies that all have specific functions. If we are depriving those cells of vital nutrients, how are these machines we have been given to operate (our bodies) going to be able to operate optimally? It simply won’t happen.
