    116 | Going After Your Dreams + Gaining Body Liberation with Chrissy King

    116 | Going After Your Dreams + Gaining Body Liberation with Chrissy King

    We're starting to enter that time of year where we walk the fine line between maintaining our boundaries and finding ways to show love for those we care most for. It can be hard to find the path that works best for you while in the hustle and bustle of holiday traditions and festivities. Although we don't necessarily talk about navigating this time of year, something we do get to discuss is taking your power back by living the life you dream of. We explore the duality of becoming that girl while having peace that everything you want will all come together - as long as you keep moving forward.

    Chrissy King is a writer, speaker, fitness and strength coach, and is passionate about women learning to take up space within the world. She is also our first-ever returning guest, making this an inspiring gift of an episode that I'm honored to bring to your ears. Trust me, you'll be thinking about this conversation for at least a few weeks - I'm definitely a little obsessed - and will wanna save this for later so you can listen to it all over again.

    115 | Taking Our Power Back from Oppressive Systems with the Crunk Feminist Collective

    115 | Taking Our Power Back from Oppressive Systems with the Crunk Feminist Collective

    In a world and time where we are constantly moving from one historical moment to the next, it can feel overwhelming to know where you can jump in and be a part of the movement for equality and justice for all. Looking through the perspective of how we can empower ourselves as a community rather than the individual reminds us that this isn't something we can do alone - but that we do together.

    I had the honor of sitting down with Brittney Cooper, Susana M. Morris and Chanel Craft Tanner of the Crunk Feminist Collective. The three of them just released their new book, Feminist AF: A Guide to Crushing Girlhood, which helps girls and gender nonbinary young people of color find their voice. Tune in to feel validated, powerful, and able to take action in building a Feminist society that supports all of us.

    114 | Creating Supportive Boundaries Around Screen Time with Taylor Morrison

    114 | Creating Supportive Boundaries Around Screen Time with Taylor Morrison

    How has your screen time been impacted by the pandemic? This is just one of the many questions I ask Taylor around our relationship with our screens and creating an unplugged self-care practice. Taylor Morrison is an international speaker, facilitator, and the founder of Inner Workout. She's on a mission to help others beat burnout by building sustainable self-care practices. Taylor is also the host of the podcast, Inner Warmup - a show I listen to on the reg.

    One of my favorite highlights from this conversation was the acknowledgment that what self-care looks for us now will look different for us five years from now - it could even look different in five weeks or five days. Building a healthy relationship with our screens is so much more than taking back our time - it's taking back our sense of self and our ability to have discernment for our lives and our needs.

    113 | Being Multi-Passionate + Betting on Yourself is Self-Love with Asha Bromfield

    113 | Being Multi-Passionate + Betting on Yourself is Self-Love with Asha Bromfield

    Connecting with Multi-Hyphenate Actress and Author Asha Bromfield was nothing short of inspiring. You might have recognized her from the hit CW show, Riverdale, or Netflix's adaptation of Locke & Key. But what we really dive into is her new coming-of-age book, Hurricane Summer, and how she ventured into creating representation for softer Black women.

    We also go deep into the desire and pursuit of doing it all, and defining what that means for you. So often, when we try to do it all, we're also trying to accomplish the expectations that loved ones and guardians have placed upon us. Asha and I explore what it means to drop those expectations and follow our passions on our own terms. If you have multiple interests and are unsure of where to start, this episode is definitely for you.

    112 | Taking Your Power Back

    112 | Taking Your Power Back

    Coming off of our Connection Series, I wanted to continue the conversation on building boundaries, pursuing what's in our best interest, and making sure we're navigating forms of self-care that align with our needs. And so for the next six episodes, we'll be exploring ways that we can take our power back - spiritually, emotionally, socially, and physically.

    So I'm starting things off by sharing some perspective and getting real with you on self-sabotage and facing our fears. In our previous episode, we talked about how we can let others show up for us, but now I want to look at how we can show up for ourselves. Our goal is to, yes, take our power back, but even more so, go after our dreams and make them a reality. Dive in to set the tone and learn how you can do just that.
