Two Healthy Habits You May Be Missing with Cate Stillman

Our guest Cate Stillman of yogahealer.com explains how modern life tends to create imbalance. When we are disconnected from the Earth and its rhythms, or disconnected from our communities or our values, symptoms can develop.

Though she had studied advanced Ayurvedic principles and yoga, Cate observed that each of her students and clients needed some basic habits in place if they were to heal. Cate has worked with thousands of women and men to help them develop the ten habits needed to thrive.  

She developed a book and program called Body Thrive, and we discuss two of the principles from the book here today.

I love these two practices because they are not commonly discussed or revered in our culture, and they are 'hidden gems' to create health.

Today we discuss the importance of:

  • Eating three meals a day without snacking to be in 'rest and digest' mode as often as possible (thus avoiding feeling frazzled)
  • Decluttering your space for a clear mind and less anxiety

This is a really fun conversation with both clear tips and strong foundational theory. Hope you enjoy it!

Healthy Decision Making: part 1

If you are stuck in elevator, between floors, it's a great time to use your wits to figure out how to get the heck out of there.  And, thankfully, in our culture today, we are encouraged to follow our hearts when choosing a mate.

But what about all the decisions in between these two extremes, when we are deciding what to eat, or when to exercise?  How about deciding our career, or what we are going to say next?
