    We Can Do Hard Things

    We Can Do Hard Things

    Glennon Doyle, author of Untamed, watched in awe as this simple phrase from Untamed – WE CAN DO HARD THINGS – the mantra that saved her life twenty years ago, became a worldwide rally cry.
    Life is freaking hard. We are all doing hard things every day – we love and lose; we forge and end friendships; battle addiction, illness, and loneliness; care for children and parents; struggle in our jobs, our marriages, our divorces; we try to set and hold boundaries – and we fight for equality, purpose, joy, and peace right in the midst of all the hard.
    On We Can Do Hard Things, Glennon, her wife Abby Wambach, and her sister Amanda Doyle, do the only thing that has ever made life easier: They talk honestly about the hard. They laugh and cry and help each other carry the hard so we can all live a little bit lighter and braver, free-er, less alone.

    Sometimes On The Way To Your Dream, You Get Lost And Find A Better One

    Sometimes On The Way To Your Dream, You Get Lost And Find A Better One

    If you’re on the path toward a dream, you know the power that manifestation holds. But there is an often unspoken part of this process that doesn’t get the acknowledgement it deserves: you cannot create something new without tearing something else down.
    In today’s episode, Rachel finds herself recording in a familiar spot, Island Yoga. She reminisces on the years she spent at this property, from the months of construction, to the first retreat she hosted, and the community that was built in the Luna Shala. But now her life looks a lot different. Creating something new in Sweden has meant she needs to say goodbye to this space that held a dream.
    This episode is an intimate conversation in finding the balance between manifestation and surrender. Tune in to anchor your trust into the beautiful things waiting for you around the corner, when you’re finally able to let go.

    Is Social Media Ruining Our Lives?

    Is Social Media Ruining Our Lives?

    Why is it so hard to set boundaries around our screen time and social media usage? We know it’s not the best for us, and we usually don’t even particularly enjoy being there, but we do it anyways.
    In today’s episode, Rachel shares her current relationship with social media and dives into this complex topic as a whole. Is screen time beneficial for our health and wellbeing? How does it affect our sleep? What will constant EMF exposure do to our bodies? Where is society ultimately going?
    Tune in and you may just be inspired to put the phone down. Your life should be spent doing things that fill you up, not going back and forth between a couple different apps.

Weekly highlight

I look forward to this podcast every week - like Christmas morning getting to listen! I really am grateful for Rachel’s vulnerability around her entire life on this platform. It has made me feel less alone, made me think, gain inspiration and just get to enjoy her words, stories and thoughts. My favourite episodes are her stories about parenthood, family struggles and joys, and when Dennis joins! Thank you Rachel ♥️

Don't waste your time

I used to enjoy this show but the last few years it's turned into a monologue of a narcissist. Same self indulgent content regurgitated in different words week after week.
