It's always fun to welcome friends to the show! This week that friend is Marc Champagne, the co-founder of Kyo, an online journaling and daily gratitude app. I've discovered Kyo (and Marc!) through a friend of a friend and immediately upon meeting - digitally first and then in person - I knew he would be a source of inspiration for me now and into the future.

Besides the hard work and commitment he's put into getting Kyo off the ground, he's an advocate for journaling and the short and long-term benefits it has on your health. He's hoping to make journaling mainstream and not the daunting task we make it out to be. This isn't your average "Dear Diary" situation...

I am obviously a huge fan of journaling, both on paper and digitally. In many ways I consider THM to be a journal. Of course it's a journal that's read by hundreds of thousands of you, but I do put my thoughts to keyboard and oftentimes feel the same sense of catharsis that I do when I'm writing privately.

But sometimes I don't want to or it doesn't feel appropriate to pull out my journal. Though I do travel with it to most places, I love that Kyo allows me to write down thoughts or do more targeted daily affirmations and intentions when I'm on the run. On the bus, in an uber, on a plane. Places where many of us find ourselves. He's making journaling accessible and that's one of the many reasons I'm excited to welcome him to the show.

Here are a few other things we covered in today's episode:

  • Marc's journey and how he found the courage to quit his corporate job and take on Kyo full-time
  • When is it the right time to quit your job?
  • Marc's morning routine and how he's found it beneficial
  • The different types of journaling and how to find one that sticks
  • The benefits of gratitude journaling
  • Why an app and what was their vision with it?
  • How they chose the design of Kyo and why they went "design-forward"
  • Why they chose to release design packs for mental fitness
  • The one health habit he can't live without

Welcome back to episode #50 of the podcast! Can't believe there's been 50 episodes. Honestly, it feels like there's been so many more but 50 is big and feels monumental. I'm so proud of this little pod and the community we've built around it. Here's to 50 and beyond!

On today's episode we have the incredible Latham Thomas of Mama Glow and the author of Own Your Glow on the show today. Latham is a pre and post-partum doula, maternal lifestyle maven and wellness coach. Beyond that, she's just such an inspiring human helping women and men alike reframe the fertility and birth process ad well as helping non-pregnant women embrace their feminine instincts and glow.

This episode was really interesting for me as I learned a lot about how I've mistakenly interpreted the birth process and where I could use some reframing. I also learned that when that day comes, I am 100% reaching out to Mama Glow! Don't hold your breath Mom...it won't be anytime soon!

Here are a few things we covered in today's episode:

  • Latham's journey and how she launched Mama Glow
  • Her calling to become a doula and what that experience was like
  • What is a doula and why she recommends getting one if you're pregnant
  • What advice Latham has for expectant Moms
  • Reframing the narrative that birth is painful
  • How to prepare your body for pregnancy even if it isn't on your radar right now
  • How self-care ties into fertility and why you must care for yourself first
  • How to cut out the noise and focus on what YOUR body needs 
  • Developing your own "glow time" practice

Happy Valentine's Day lovers!

Today I have a very special guest on the podcast...its someone you might be familiar with. I'm welcoming my fiancé, known around here as "C" onto the show to chat about love. Well, we get into more than just love but in honor of Valentine's Day, I thought I would share the hot seat with my love.

Now I may be biased, but I'm pretty sure Curt might be the wisest person we've ever had on the show. I've never met anyone who is so deeply content with their life but also strives for so much more. He's a dreamer by nature and his taught me so much about what it means to create the life you want to live.

I could not be more honored (or thankful!) to have Curt on the show today.

Here are a few things we covered in today's episode:

  • Curt's own journey and how we met
  • What he does for a living and how we make it work living and working under the same roof
  • Long distance and how we did 2.5 years of it!
  • Being in a relationship with someone who is more emotional and extreme than you
  • His involvement with THM and what he thought when I first started a blog
  • His best tips for training a dog
  • His version of self-care and how he takes care of himself daily
  • His favorite and least favorite things about me
  • Random facts you may not know about me

By now you know that I don't shy away from exploring taboo topics on the podcast (or really just in life!). From my own mental health journey, to cannabis awareness and now today's episode all about relationships and sexuality, having conversations that we're told to keep private has become my personal mission.

A few months ago a couple of you requested that we bring a relationship coach/expert onto the podcast and after Georgia and I jumped into the research we discovered Susana Frioni. Immediately I know we had to have her on the show. Susana's journey has taken many unexpected turns and from this she's built Love, Sex, Desire, a podcast and coaching business that has helped thousands of women come to terms with their own sexuality and relationships. I'm honored to have her on the show today.

Beyond her sage wisdom, Susana's approach towards life is both calming and encouraging. She is the reminder we all need to be patient and to quiet the noise and listen to our intuition.

Here are a few other things we discussed on today's episode:

  • Susana's journey and what led her to found Love, Sex, Desire
  • Her personal awakening and experience at Vipassana 
  • What her upbringing was like and how she felt about exploring sexuality growing up
  • The end of her marriage and the start of her relationship with a woman
  • How to have conversations around sexuality with our current or future partners
  • Exploring your sexuality without feeling judged by those around you
  • What she wishes was being taught in sexual education
  • Sacred dance parties and what that experience looks like
  • The one health habit she can't live without
