Episode 19: Sick of trying everything and still not having the body you want?

10.png

Audio


As you listen to us respond to today’s listener question you’ll hear us both get a bit heated in our thoughts and responses.

The 3 big takeaways from this episode are:

  1. do not compare yourself to any other women out there, you really, truly don’t know their reality.

  2. if you struggle to always make healthy choices you are in good company joining 100% of the rest of us, yes, even that woman you think is perfect (spoiler alert: she’s not)

  3. even if it’s by an inch, every time one of us moves away from the narrative that women need to look a certain way it’s a massive win for all of us

And we’re going through a 4 week, 6-step process for you to try to make shifts in the relationship you have with your body. These are fresh ideas for you and I’m certain some of them will be the very first time you’ve heard anything like that.

We talk about:

  • Sleep interrupters

  • How to use light to optimize your sleep hormones

  • 3 top tips for morning and evening to deepen your sleep

Episode 16: What to do when you’re struggling to stay consistent with your workouts

17.png

Audio


One of my favorite things is to connect with my listeners, to hear how the information I’m sharing here is relevant to you and how it’s helping you feel healthier. I love these chats sometimes over email, sometimes messenger and even sometimes video chats. Or even reading your podcast reviews (hint hint)!

And without fail I’ll hear things like this:

"I start out strong and then inevitably fizzle out"

"something always comes up that gets in the way of me getting to the gym and eating healthy"

"I know it’s good for me and I even feel better when I do it so why is it so why do I keep quitting"

"I have so many good habits but I can never stick with this one and it’s so frustrating"

Do any of these sound familiar to you? When it comes to being healthier consistency is non-negotiable. So why is it so darn hard?

Today we’re answering this exact listener question. And we get into:

  • the 2 different types of accountability

  • how we schedule workouts

  • one step that increases your follow through by 300%

  • what makes a fitness expert moan through her workouts

  • the best times to workout

  • and what to do with distractions and a crazy schedule

#14: Body Wisdom Series (5) ~ Outer Calm = Inner Calm: Practical advice for decluttering your life

15.png

Audio


Recent scientific research shows that having too many things in your home may not only make it difficult to find your keys, but significantly impact how you feel.

And spoiler alert: getting organized does not just mean cleaning, sorting, and putting your things away. It is also about deciding what you need and love.

I’ve heard it termed ‘stuffocation’ when we feel suffocated by the amount of stuff around us and I think that’s a great term to describe how overwhelming and immobilizing it can be when we’re faced with a huge decluttering job.

If the thought of decluttering makes you want to take a nap this episode will help.

Today I’m joined by clutter expert Jen Rao and we’re going through these 9 listener questions:

  1. Our favourite decluttering books

  2. Strategies to systematically declutter and organize

  3. How to deal with sentimental items

  4. The worry of ‘what if I need it later?”

  5. What to do about weight fluctuations and having all different sizes in your closet

  6. How to decide what you should keep and what to get rid of

  7. What to do if your spouse/family members have a lot of stuff

  8. How you can work with your aging parents to clear their home

  9. And how to handle gift giving
