    Feeling Your Way Through

    Feeling Your Way Through

    Do you check in with yourself when you wake up in the morning? Or, do you wake up and immediately dive into tackling the things on your ever-mounting to-do list? Today's podcast explores the practice of connecting with your mind, body, and spirit as a daily tool to bolster self-partnership and self-trust. So many of us have been raised and conditioned to see our inherent, human neediness as an embarrassing, weak part of our identities -- something to be tucked out of view if one wants to be successful in life. Host Mara Glatzel turns this paradigm on its head, teaching us how radically embracing our needs and humanity might be THE THING that supports us in cultivating the lives that we are truly longing for. Tune in to hear her personal daily practice of turning her attention towards herself, honoring and validating her feelings, and deciding to meet her needs in a way that is deliciously doable each and every day.

    Body Justice with Dr. Joy Cox

    Body Justice with Dr. Joy Cox

    Are you aware of how the messages you receive about your body impacts your relationship with it? In this episode, Dr. Joy Cox and I are getting deep and talking about weight stigma, fat acceptance, and what it really means to respect and care for your body. Dr. Joy Cox is a body justice advocate using her skill set in research and leadership to foster social change through the promotion of fat acceptance and diversity and inclusion. With 37 years living as a fat, Black cisgendered woman and 7+ years of professional experience under her belt, Dr. Cox draws on her own experiences and skillset to amplify the voices of those most marginalized in society, bringing attention to matters of intersectionality addressing race, body size, accessibility, and "health." She also just authored her first book, Fat Girls in Black Bodies: Creating Communities of Our Own. She is the voice of an overcomer, looking to propel others into a place of freedom designed by their desires. During our conversation, Joy talks about her own journey to acceptance and what acceptance means to her. She also talks about how she navigates boundaries and why the golden rule of, “treat others how you want to be treated” should apply to how you treat yourself too.

    Honoring Your Energy Cycles

    Honoring Your Energy Cycles

    Do you expect your energy to be constant every day, 365 days a year? Do you beat yourself up or judge yourself harshly for not consistently not living up to your expectations for how much you "should" be able to get done each day? This episode is for you. Tune in to hear me talk about how understanding and aligning with our personal energy rhythms is one of the BEST ways to get more done, with less struggle -- and without sacrificing your precious self-care. Identifying your own natural rhythms is a natural byproduct of tuning in and prioritizing connection with your body, which is not something that we are taught how to do. During this episode, I share some of my best tools for how to bring a greater sense of intentionality into your relationship with yourself, and use it to cultivate a calendar and care practices to ensure that you are supported all year long.

    Meaningful & Kind Movement with Lori Race

    Meaningful & Kind Movement with Lori Race

    It’s no secret that our bodies need movement. However, many of us are recovering from abusive relationships with exercise that keeps us from being able to move our bodies lovingly and sustainably. We might be experts on the kind of exercise that the diet and exercise industry deems "right" and "best", but we aren't sure how to connect with what OUR bodies need. In this episode, I am talking to Lori Race, founder of The Meaningful Movement Project. Lori is a healer, health clinic owner and writer with a passionate message to share from her past as a fitness instructor suffering from compulsive exercise disorder. The Meaningful Movement Project is her rallying cry for a radical new approach to exercise; one that looks to care for mind, body, soul and planet through a broader, more compassionate lens. And one that draws on our deep ancestral desires for movement in ritual, play, and a spiritual connection to the natural world. During our conversation, Lori talks about how movement shouldn’t be looked at as a chore but rather a nourishing and sacred practice you do to take care of yourself. She and I discuss reconnecting with your why, what a sustainable fitness routine looks like, and the common myths of fitness culture.

    Reclaiming Your Neediness

    Reclaiming Your Neediness

    There is no way around it -- you are responsible for your needs. There’s nothing more lonely than not being in relationship with yourself and abandoning your needs. In this episode, I talk about reclaiming your neediness and allowing your needs out of the closet. This topic is a critical part of our journey of taking care of ourselves in the way we deeply yearn for. It’s about recognizing your needs as sacred, lighting your path from self-abandonment to true self-partnership. I explored how the stories we carry about our needs can cause us to neglect ourselves. You’ll also hear why so many people face burnout due to the lack of taking care of their needs and learning to accept that we are a human with needs (and the importance of doing this in community).

Great for caregivers

This is an excellent show with an excellent host. For self proclaimed “caregivers” who are weary but long for a deep, trusting, and consistent relationship with themselves, Mara offers bread crumbs to get there. And! They! Are! OH! So! GOOD!!!

Needy feels like a soft place to a land when things feel harsh and overwhelming. I’m so grateful to have found Mara and her work, as her voice is so comforting and needed. Highly recommend this podcast!

Mara’s wisdom and insight is a balm for the soul and her suggestions and solutions are accessible, practical, and, most importantly, effective. I love her authenticity, vulnerability, and relatability and her advice inspires me to better meet my needs.
