40. Pottery With a Side of Sensory Discomfort With Liz Lagarde
On this episode, Paige chats with Liz Lagarde the beautiful and kind soul behind Maple Leaf Pottery. Liz shares her story of how she went from interior design student, to full time potter, to being diagnosed with ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) as an adult. Liz shares her own experience living with SPD and what it feels like in her own body, as well as how it created a wall that she kept bumping up against with personal relationships and with Maple Leaf Pottery. Liz would try harder to overcome certain things she was facing in her business, which would leave her feeling really upset and extremely burnt out. Thanks to therapy and some self discovery, Liz now knows how to work with her SPD instead of against it. Liz explains how with her businesses, she needs rest days, which means putting rest first before diving into work is crucial for her. Paige and Liz also chat about how creating a calm environment sets them both up for success and how occupational therapy, breath work, walks outside, and essential oils can help focus and sharpen the mind. This episode is casual, fun, educational and may or may not go off on a few tangents about babies, foster care, and overall life balance.
