How to Stop Being So Moody • 165

0 Episode Rating

We will learn: 

What are moods are trying to tell us

How to shorten a whole mood into a moment

We break down the most common moods and how to deal with them in a way that will create new emotional habits

How much of your life are you wasting because you’re in a mood?

Reframing how you feel about your emotions and your relationship to them is really the first step to changing your mood habits. Because it’s hard to reframe an experience if you’re doing so out of fear, or if you think your reaction is inevitable.

And from there, we can start to learn the tools for reframing our most common moods and what’s really beneath them. And I’ll give you a hint, what’s really at the root of our moods is usually not what we’re reacting to at all.

Our guest today is Lauren Martin. She is the founder of Words of Women and author of The Book of Moods. She’s here to show us that you really can turn your worst moods into your best life.*

We will learn:

How to recognize an epiphany

The stages of every life-changing epiphany

How to utilize our epiphanies to their highest potentials.

Have you ever had an epiphany? Do you even know what one is?

We usually use it to mean a sudden revelation or insight… and most of the time I hear it used in those lightbulb moments of creativity… kinda like an “aha” moment.

But I’m coming to learn it goes a little deeper.

The dictionary definition is a sudden, intuitive perception of or insight into the reality or essential *meaning* of something, usually initiated by some simple, homely, or commonplace occurrence or experience.

And the word “epiphany” dates all the way back to ancient Greece. It comes from the Greek “epiphaneia,” meaning “appearance” or “manifestation,” and was usually referred to the revelations brought to us by the gods.

So it’s not just about a random insight… it’s an intuition realization about the the deeper meaning of something.

Which I believe is our whole purpose in being in a body in this lifetime. To find the meaning in our lives.

Our guest is Elise Ballard. She is the author of the book, Epiphany: True Stories of Sudden Insight and Epiphany: The Journal, which are all part of her Epiphany Project, a collection of interviews with people from all walks of life about their greatest epiphanies. 

She is now considered an “epiphany expert” so I’m super stoked at the insights we’ll get from today’s episode.

How to Decide • 164

0 Episode Rating

We will learn

How the hindsight bias screws with our decisions

How to better identify the obstacles that might get in our way

When to bring out our full decision toolkit and when to act quickly

Why are decisions so hard?

We should all know by now that our time is the most valuable resource we have, so why would we willingly waste it on things that are so trivial?

Indecision is not cute. I’ll tell you what it is though… It’s annoying. It’s counterproductive and it’s a form of pain.

And there are all sorts of consequences.

We end up procrastinating so we don’t have to face the decision at all. Which then affects our self-belief because we stop trusting ourselves to keep a structure and finish things.

So today we’re going to talk about How to Decide.

Our guest is Annie Duke. She is a corporate speaker, and consultant in the decision-making space. 

And she’s the author of How to Decide: Simple Tools for Making Better Choices and Thinking in Bets, which is a national bestseller. 

She is the co-founder of The Alliance for Decision Education, a non-profit whose mission is to improve lives by empowering students through decision skills education.

Motherhood & Entrepreneurship • X28 PREVIEW

0 Episode Rating

We will learn:

Multi-sensory healing – your senses are the portals for your awareness

Why strong women often feel empty and disconnected inside

How to stop outsourcing your authority

Do you believe you can have it all? Or does a part of you believe that having it all is actually a little selfish?

As women, we’re given mixed messages, about pretty much everything. Thankfully we live in an era of female empowerment so there are plenty of stories of women being successful and raising a family.

But what I’ve found is that when it comes down to it… like when women are faced with the logistics of what it takes to have both, the choice becomes a little murkier.

We wonder if it’s selfish to outsource our parenting, or if it makes financial sense or what we’re depriving them of, or if we’ll have the energy to succeed and still be a good mom.

So today we’re talking to someone who has done it all.

Cherie Burton is a pioneering spiritual psychologist whose mission in life is to transform women into authentically embodied and empowered leaders. 

She is also a mother of six, an author, an international speaker and host of the Women Seeking Wholeness podcast.

How to Develop Mental Strength • 163

0 Episode Rating

We will learn:

What makes a mentally strong person

Why and how to do hard things

How to push through self doubt toward our highest purpose

Would you consider yourself mentally strong? Do you even know what that means? 

Most people though equate mental strength with mental health. But according to the dictionary mental health is just the absence of a mental illness. 

Often it’s our struggles that motivate us to develop mental strength because we realize that the pain of change is less than the way things are.

But here’s the thing, we don’t have to wait for things to get so bad that we’re forced to make changes in our lives. We can choose to consciously create our lives based on what we want out of it, rather than just based on what we don’t want to happen.

Well today we’re going to learn how to develop the mental strength that will help us lead our best lives.

Our guest is Amy Morin, a psychotherapist and the host of the Mentally Strong People podcast. Her books, including 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do, and  are international bestsellers. She also gave one of the most popular TEDx talks of all time.

Body Image Resilience • 162

0 Episode Rating

We will learn:

The difference between body image resilience and body positivity? 

How self-objectification destroys our identities and what to do about it

How to create a healthy relationship with your body including powerful mantras and being more media savvy

If you’re anything like me, most of your life you’ve had a love/hate relationship with your body.

Actually, if you’re a woman, there’s a good chance there’s not a lot of love in that love/hate relationship.

Approximately 91% of women are unhappy with their bodies and resort to dieting to achieve their ideal body shape. 

Our obsessions and disappointment with our bodies isn’t healthy. It creates a disordered relationship with food or with exercise, but most dangerous, it creates a disordered relationship with ourselves.

Today’s episode we’re going to explore an alternate vision for your relationship with your body.

Our guest has a really unique perspective because as an identical twin, she and her sister basically saw themselves from the outside in, with a constant comparison and sense of competition.

We will be speaking with Dr. Lexie Kite today. Both she and her identical twin Lindsay have PhDs and are co-founders of the non-profit Beauty Redefined and experts in the work of body image resilience. They reach millions worldwide via research-backed online education. And their new book More than a Body was just released today.
