    Staying Positive in a Pandemic w/ Rye & Jess! (Our Initial Reactions to the Crisis and Advice for: Maintaining Healthy Habits from Home, Connecting with Self, Staying Entertained and Helping Others)!

    In times of crisis, it's easy to let fear consume us and we can begin losing control over our time, energy and focus. That's why Rye & Jess teamed up to acknowledge the fears around this pandemic, and encourage listeners to focus on what they can control and what they can do to take advantage of time at home, outside of your usual routine. It's time to look inward, get resourceful, get creative, and seek ways to connect and support one another during this unique time of 'social distancing,' loss and fear.

Love them!

This podcast touches on so many topics, like hormone health, diversity in wellness, etc that are so often left untouched by other wellness podcasts. These girls are super authentic and laugh about themselves along the way which is refreshing and makes you feel like you’ve been best friends with them for years. Can’t wait to see who they have on next!
