My Marco Polo Channel - The Wild Joy Collective - launches June 16th and I am so excited! As a holistic health coach who has been through some STUFF in my own health journey I know how overwhelming it can feel, that is why I became a coach in the first place.

On detoxing and cleansing, part 1

Feeding ourselves: It's about more than just FOOD

Ever wonder why you eat that whole carton of ice cream even though you know it will make you feel like crap? (Or is that just me?) Today I talk about why often times the food we eat has more to do with other areas of our lives than we think, and why we need to dive into this in order to create holistic change in our health. At the end of the episode I talk about an exciting opportunity to work with me on your own health without committing to the whole cost of my 3 or 6 month programs. My Marco Polo Channel - The Wild Joy Collective - launches June 7th and I am so excited!

Stress and Your Gut

You asked, here it is! In my last episode on gut health I mentioned that stress has an effect on gut health and several of you asked about that so today I dive in a little deeper on what physically happens to your gut when you are stressed, and what some tangible things are that you can do to counter or heal that!

Stress and Your Gut

Gut/Brain Connection and Why You Should Know About It

I am super passionate about this particular aspect of health because it means that food IS medicine and we can make tremendous changes in our overall health with the way we eat. It's not just a weight loss thing. Our gut health is tied to so much more, including our brains. So today I talk about the basics of that connection, what studies have found about the impact of gut health on greater health, and how you can improve that.

Listen to Your Body: What does that EVEN MEAN?

Quarantine Life: Extroverts and Introverts

This episode was inspired by the ubiquitous meme calling for introverts to put down their books and check on their extroverted friends who are not ok. Which is super intriguing to me. This episode is part one in a series talking about how being an ambivert, extrovert or introvert effects your experience of the times we are living in, and the relationships we have. We are kicking it off talking about what input introverts may have for extroverts adjusting to more solitary time than many bargained for.

Quarantine Life: Extroverts and Introverts

Quarantine Life: The "Good, How Are You?" Phenomena

Today is truly a ramble. I ramble about the habitual asking/answering of the question "How are you?" in a less than honest manner, why we do it, and what why we need to stop.

Quarantine and Running: Not All That Different

This episode dives into the thought rambling of my mind while I was on my last run about how my experiences of running and training for a half marathon are very similar to my experiences with quarantine. Even if you don't run, I am sure there are parallels between many hobbies/endeavors and quarantine life. I would love to hear your thoughts on this!
