My space profoundly impacts my mood and emotional state so of course I think of creating my space as a major part of my overall health and hormone balance. Our productivity, creativity, sense of peace, motivation and joy can all be influenced by the space around us and with so many of us spending even more time at home in the last few years, creating a space that gives you the vibe you’re after can be one more little thign you do to support your health and wellbeing.

My dear friend Margo joined me on this episode to give us some amazing advice from color psychology to where to spend your hard earned money to how to find a middle ground between needing to spruce up a room NOW but not able to do a full renovation.

In this episode I talk about why I’m such an advocate for both strength training for women - and it’s not just about body composition and preventing osteoporosis. Muscle mass is your metabolism to a large degree and it’s a key player as an endocrine and immune organ. You read that right! Muscles make hormones called myokines that have a huge impact in systemic inflammation thus are key to your overall health and hormone balance.

But how about if you’re wanting to lose body fat, should you be focusing on cardio or weights? While cardio does burn fat during your session it’s a lot more complicated than that so I cover how to strike a balance but most importantly why you can’t rely on exercise alone for fat loss. We must get rid of the idea that exercise can simply just “burn it off”.

Lastly, I cover the barriers we have to lifting weights be it know how, logistics or of course: not enough time!

In this mini episode I walk you through how to change your mindset around having to eat a bit differently than other people as well as the logistics of not being able to eat everything at a party or event. I cover the ways you can easily plan ahead and contribute as well as exactly what I say when I need to let someone know what our family can and can’t eat. I also get into the dicey dynamics of what to do when a family member or caregiver doesn’t understand or doesn’t respect how you’re choosing to feed your kids.

This short episode is a bit on the long side, clearly I have a ton to say about this! It can be a real challenge so I wanted to cover it thoroughly to help you commit easier to what works for you and your family.

Probiotics are sorta the OG of favorite supplements, most everyone has taken one yet there is still so much confusion and marketing hoo-ha, it’s no wonder I still get asked “what’s the best probiotic to take?” and “should I take them with food or without?” and of course, “is it best to take probiotics when on antibiotics or after or should I even bother?”

 

I cover all of these questions and give you some guidance on how to choose a probiotic supplement, how to spot problems with probiotics so you can choose more quality formulas and just how much difference you can expect in your health and hormones if you’re taking probiotics.

 

Also there is an exciting announcement at the end of this episode!
