    Intention Is The New Balance - How To Live On Purpose with Amy Wong

    Intention Is The New Balance - How To Live On Purpose with Amy Wong

    Intention Is The New Balance - How To Live On Purpose with Amy Wong



    Meghan is joined by the ever-compelling Amy Wong on this week’s episode of Impact. Amy is a leadership and transformational coach and the founder of  Always On Purpose®. Amy started out studying and teaching math and then went on to get a master’s degree in transpersonal psychology to feed her hunger for answers to life’s big questions. She’s written a book called “Living on Purpose, Five Deliberate Choices to Realize Fulfillment and Joy.”
     
    Amy says the first step is to ask yourself – What’s more important? Playing it safe or changing the world? From there, you can make choices that get you to your goals. Living with intention means taking full responsibility for your choices. If you can learn to do that, you are never a victim of circumstance.
     
    However, we all know that making big choices can bring about anxiety and nervousness. The key is to realize that you are always standing for something, which is your primary underlying objective. When you stand for growth and not conflict avoidance, your life will change radically.
     
    Eloquence and innovation come from taking a stand for what you believe in and rechanneling all your doubt or anxiety into one focal point. This focusing mechanism is a powerful tool. When you claim what you want, you become empowered and feel unity, love and harmony in your life.
     
    Tune in to hear all the ‘aha’ moments that Amy and Meghan’s discussion brings to light.

    Impact Medicine: The Future of Health

    Impact Medicine: The Future of Health

    On this week’s episode of IMPACT, Meghan discusses the future of our healthcare system and what we can do to improve our present system which is based on a sick care system.
     
    Meghan starts out by talking about getting her first mammogram and how it brought up concerns of depersonalization and lack of dignity for patients and what they’re going through.
      
    Many aspects of our healthcare system have remained antiquated and have become undignified. Even handing a patient a hospital gown can be disenfranchising and disempowering. Meghan envisions a future healthcare system that’s sustainable and can perpetuate and enable humans to become their healthiest selves – to move people toward their health potential rather than just fixing chronic health issues and managing disease.
     
    Our current system is based on maintaining a mediocre level of health rather than educating patients on how to build on their health.  This includes teaching people how to eat, how to exercise, and how to remove allergens from their diet. When we look at the future of healthcare, we must look at giving people a strategy on how to move forward toward optimal health and understanding how their bodies work. It also includes changing the traditional sick care system so healthcare providers don’t suffer from burnout.
     
    Meghan is heading up her fifth year of Impact LIVEs from November 17 – 20, 2022, bringing together practitioners from around the world to discuss concepts at the forefront of healthcare. This year’s theme is understanding the future trends of healthcare and IMPACT medicine, including individualized care, the advent of DNA medicine, integration of technology and the intentional delivery of optimal healthcare.
     
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    [4:25] The importance of handing dignity back to the patient
    [8:53] What’s burdening our healthcare system
    [12:26] What IMPACT medicine is and how it can change the system
    [14:47] Some of the future trends in healthcare
    [23:37] Why innovation is key in future healthcare

    “We know that in the next 10 years, our population is going to explode. Our incidence of chronic disease is going to increase to a staggering amount, to an amount and with a frequency and intensity that our system cannot handle.” - Meghan Walker
     
    “What would it take for us to actually create a healthcare system built in sustainability that facilitated the ultimate perpetuation of health that enabled humans to visit their doctor and not discuss their cholesterol, but to discuss their ultimate potential?” - Meghan Walker
     
    “It's not about the gown or the white coat or the hierarchy or the title. It's about giving patients a strategy for them to move forward with their health and with their care themselves.” - Meghan Walker
     
    “I'm not just looking at how we deliver better patient outcomes when it comes to building health, but I'm simultaneously talking about how we build better outcomes when it comes to those deploying the care to prevent burnout with physicians and nurses and everyone involved in the traditional sick care system.” - Meghan Walker

    5 Steps to Radiance and Killer Skin with Rachel Varga

    5 Steps to Radiance and Killer Skin with Rachel Varga

    Rachel Varga is a double-certified nurse and aesthetic specialist who’s done more than 20,000 rejuvenation procedures and has written international papers on optimal skincare. She’s at the top of her field when it comes to evidence-based approaches to skincare.
     
    Let’s face it -- your skin quality is one of the first things people notice about you, and we all want to have radiant skin that glows. But how do you get to that level of radiance? It starts by solving your health issues from the inside out.
     
    Rachel points out that air, water, lighting, and electromagnetic purification in your daily life is really key. Purify the air in your office and your living space. Use reverse osmosis to purify your water. For lighting, get rid of your LED lights and go back to halogen. Keep your phone on airplane mode. Turn Bluetooth off in your home.
     
    She also recommends getting grounded by spending a lot of time outside and “living like a caveman” by eating the right foods, simplifying your routine, and limiting your cell phone use.
     
    Her five quintessential skin care practices include cleansing your face morning and night, moisturizing, using a mineral sunscreen every day, exfoliating twice a week and doing an at-home mask treatment once a week. Follow these skin care practices and you’ll be well on your way to radiance, both inside and out.
     
    Listen and take note as Rachel expands upon the topic of radiance and how if we feel great and look great our interactions with the people, places and things around us will be brighter.

    “If you’re just kicking it at home and not doing your skincare, you’re actually still damaging your skin. Convenience is killing us. Sometimes we just have to have an awareness.”
    - Rachel Varga
     
    “More and more clients are wanting to move away from injectables for different reasons. If anything is ever not feeling right for you, you should really listen to that little voice and intuition.”
    - Rachel Varga
     
    “There are very important practices like body, mind, spirit, energy optimization, eating the right foods, getting your inflammation down and improving your cellular health that will slow your skin aging.”
    - Rachel Varga
     
    “When you’re not well on the inside, the skin takes a couple of weeks to a month to manifest that. If you have more sugar or alcohol or treats, you’ll have more breakouts afterwards, but not immediately.”
    - Rachel Varga
     
    “I’m a huge fan of doing monthly cleanses with different herbs and then also quarterly intense cleanses. We deworm our dogs, our animals, but we forget to deworm ourselves.”
    - Rachel Varga
     
    “I am interested not just in the gut, but in the largest organ of the body which is the skin, and everything else feeds into that.”

    Finding and Keeping Love as a High Performance Woman with Sami Wunder

    Finding and Keeping Love as a High Performance Woman with Sami Wunder

    Love Coach, Sami Wunder, shares how high-performing women can find love in their lives without alienating their partners, and how they can keep that relationship high-performing.
     
    Many women who consider themselves ambitious go-getters have a hard time attracting and keeping a good man in their lives. The first step is to look at how, as a woman, you may be contributing to the dynamics that you face in your love life. When women stop placing blame and learn how to be vulnerable in relationships, their partners react in a positive way and embrace that vulnerability.
     
    That doesn’t mean playing a submissive role or acting helpless. It means looking at your love life patterns and seeing where you may be blocking love from coming in. Once you shift those patterns from a win/lose point of view to a new pattern of acceptance on both sides, the passion and love is enhanced.
     
    A key factor is bringing the feminine aspect into a relationship. Embodying your feminine is about being who you truly are. Drop the masks, drop the walls and be vulnerable and comfortable in your own imperfection. Be open to receiving love as well as giving love. When you let your guard down, the real connection happens.
     
    Tune in to this interesting discussion on love, vulnerability and the high-performance woman.

    “Love coaching is about looking at your love life patterns and seeing where and how you may be not allowing love to come in, and how to shift those patterns.”
    - Sami Wunder
     
    “You need an embodied masculine partner and you need an embodied feminine partner, and that’s going to increase the fire, the passion, the sexual attraction. That is really the foundation of a romantic relationship.”
    - Sami Wunder
     
    “It’s all about having the capacity to receive that love instead of rationalizing through it and saying I don’t need it or I can do it myself.”
    - Sami Wunder
     
    “It’s actually about dropping the masks, dropping the walls, becoming comfortable, being vulnerable, being imperfect and letting somebody see that.”
