    New Year: Resolutions To Not Change Your Body

    New Year: Resolutions To Not Change Your Body

    How can we survive the "New Year, New Me" hype? Why should we not start a new diet in January... or ever? And how can we can make resolutions without damaging our body image?


    Michelle and Amalie welcome you into 2019 with an episode that counters all the "new year, new me" garbage we are seeing at this time of the year. Instead of talking about new diets or workout regimes, we focus on goals that can actually improve our lives - not crush our souls.

    Holidays: How To Not Kill Your Family

    Holidays: How To Not Kill Your Family

    How do you avoid family fights? How do you get some time by yourself when nobody seem willing to leave you alone? And how do you stop feeling guilty for overeating at Christmas?


    Michelle and Amalie get you prepped to survive the holiday season. Whether you and your family are fighting, or you are spending Christmas alone, this time of year can be stressful. This week's episode is all about how to keep up your boundaries around nosy family members, why hiding in the bathroom is essential self-care, and why it's OK to hate Christmas.

    Therapy: Is It Still Taboo?

    Therapy: Is It Still Taboo?

    Is there still a stigma around therapy? How do you know when you don’t need therapy anymore? Or is therapy a lifelong thing?


    Michelle and Amalie share their experiences of going to therapy, and how there are some flaws in how the system works. They discuss the expense of therapy, whether diagnosing people actually benefits them and how to find the right therapist when you can barely even understand the difference between a counsellor, psychotherapist, psychologist and psychiatrist.

    Manifestation: Can You Manifest Your Crush?

    Manifestation: Can You Manifest Your Crush?

    Can you manifest more money into your life? How do you manifest a person? And is it manifestation, or is it privilege?


    Michelle and Amalie talk about their experiences with manifestation, from attracting money to specific people. They also discuss the business of self development and spirituality, and whether or not some people take it too far.

    Boundaries: Is It Selfish To Cut Someone Out?

    Boundaries: Is It Selfish To Cut Someone Out?

    How do you set a boundary? How do you know if someone has changed? And can you let someone back into your life if they've crossed your boundaries before?


    Michelle and Amalie discuss boundaries and how learning about this topic has impacted their life. They talk about when it's time to call it quits in a friendship, cutting people out and occasionally, letting those people back into your life.

    Periods: Pads, Pain and PMS

    Periods: Pads, Pain and PMS

    Are you a pads or tampon person? Can you be too tight to use a cup? And can you be too old to leak?


    Michelle and Amalie share their experiences with their periods, the struggles of learning how to use a tampon for the first time and how to have that awkward conversation with your friend if you’ve leaked on their chair. They talk about why we are still uncomfortable using the correct terminology for a period and coin a new term “period positivity”
