How to embrace radical self-care in your own life (with Monica Ballard)

How to embrace radical self-care in your own life (with Monica Ballard) #podcast #selfcare #selflove #wellness #emotionalwellbeing #wellbeing #spirituality

Self-care is a conversation that I’ve been wanting to dive deep with and am thrilled to be talking about it with Monica Ballard, a massage therapist, reiki practitioner, yoga instructor, and fellow podcaster.

Monica shares about her her life and work, using her personal journey to inform her professional passions around radical self-care. 

We start our conversation with several book recommendations in the self-help genre, then weave our way through the concept of radical self-care as it relates to authenticity, awareness, integrity, and integration, and, finally, end on one of the most beautiful stories about crocodiles and the Never-Not-Broken Goddess. 

I found this entire conversation to be informative, thought-provoking, and profound and am truly excited to go back and listen again because of the nuggets of wisdom Monica shares throughout.

You are what you value (with Jenn Hand)

During this hour-long conversation, Jenn talks about the power of the 3 really's, why it's important to know whether your life is a true reflection of who you are and what you value at your core, and how both of those things relate to food and dieting.

I had the pleasure the sitting down with Jenn Hand, food and body image coach and creator of the Normal Eaters Club, to talk about food and health. Jenn is a firm believer that we already know what we want and need, we just forget how to listen to that deepest part of our selves.

So settle in and take a listen because this. is. a good one. (And if you’re feeling frisky, feel free to head on over to iTunes and leave me a review.)
