    An episode for everyone who admires trailblazers like Kathrine Switzer and Jane Fonda: Journalist Danielle Friedman shares insight and anecdotes gained from her research for her brand-new book, Let’s Get Physical. She talks with hosts Sarah and Katie about:

    -the pervasive (and now debunked!) notion that strenuous physical exertion harmed women;
    -how the 1970s running boom affected women differently than men;
    -Jane Fonda blending fitness and feminism; and,
    -women finding solace from movement in navigating loss.

    AMR Trains: Creating Healthy Habits

    AMR Trains: Creating Healthy Habits

    If you’re looking for some simple, easy ways to integrate habits into your life, we’ve got you. Two experts—psychologist Dr. Michelle Trotter-Mathison and dietician Ellie Kempton—chat with Dimity and Sarah Wassner Flynn about what makes a sustainable, healthy habit.
    Among other things, the discussion includes:

    The disconnect between intention and action—and where most of us get tripped up;

    Why size (think super tiny!) and simplicity (think super easy!) are key when forming a new routine and subsequent habit;

    How a routine, rather than being constricting, can actually be freeing; and

    The idea that willpower is actually a reflection of needs not being met. (So true when it comes to nutrition!)

    Ready to join Michelle in Creating Habits that Stick? Register here; the four-week program starts Monday, January 10.
    Ready to join Ellie in Simply Nourished Like a Mother? Register here; the eight-week program starts Monday, January 10.
