    #113 - How to Reclaim Your Enthusiasm for Life

    #113 - How to Reclaim Your Enthusiasm for Life

    Do you ever wonder how to find your life’s passion? If so, I've got a great podcast for you all today! I’m talking to a relationship whisperer named Emily Pereira. Emily is an international retreat leader, yoga teacher, and women's coach. She invites women to her retreats who feel they’ve lost their spark or are going through big life transitions, so they can reclaim their enthusiasm for life and trust their path! All of her retreats take place in Costa Rica where she lives full time, how dreamy is that!?
    In this episode, Emily shares the story of how she walked away from the so-called dream life in order to go on a quest. The quest, as Emily describes it, is an epic, inner journey to find the essential self or the spiritual self. It’s the self that knows exactly who you are, why you're here and the steps you need to take to have that incredible life you want to live. Doing that for herself was so transformational that she now shares it with any woman needing the same.
    Emily also is giving each of you an incredible free gift, her goddess cleanse, normally priced for $249.  Why should you grab this freebie? Here’s how Emily explains it, “If you're in that place where you want to either spice up your relationship, or you want to call love in, this cleanse can support you in doing that. When it comes to calling in truly aligned love, three systems need to be attuned to the body, the mind and the spirit. This cleanse works with the moon cycles to soothe your nervous system, clear internal blocks and elevates your vibrational frequency. 
    It's going to balance your appetite while also being super easy to follow. And it's going to accelerate your quest for love, because what it does is it draws forth your natural beauty and your innate power to shine.” How powerful is that?!  You can grab it right here.
    Again, My conversation with Emily was so inspiring, so if you’re looking to find your life’s passion tune in to this episode. Be sure to listen until the end so you can learn a mantra that has guided her path and could be just what you need to go into the new year!

    #112 - New Year’s Resolution or Intention Setting?

    #112 - New Year’s Resolution or Intention Setting?

    Are you a new year’s resolution or intention setting kind of person? In the month of January there’s always a lot of talk about goal setting for the year. Personally, I’m not a new year's resolutions kind of girl. I used to be, but I realized a long time ago that those don't work for me. Instead, I like to choose a word for the year that I set my intentions on. 
    Resolutions can feel rigid and if you don’t live up to it there can be a feeling that you somehow failed. Setting an intention gives you something to set your focus on. You can let it be something that keeps bringing you back when you are making decisions throughout the year. I often ask myself, “does this align with my word for the year?”, if not I can easily say no. 
    I'm a big believer that mindset is the key to everything. In the book, Tiny Habits by BJ Fogg, he says that in order to get our behavior to change, we have to do the small things and do them consistently. Taking pause to celebrate yourself and be proud of how far you come gives you the strength to keep going. It's small things done consistently that bring the change and that’s something I talk a lot about in my balance program.
    I encourage you to think about a word or intention for your year and write it down. If you're looking for guidance, here are some great questions to spark ideas. Avoid looking for the quick fix and instead ask yourself, if this is my intention, how am I going to get there? What is going to be my roadmap? 
    When we are working on health and wellness, it isn't a destination. It is a journey. We have to have a roadmap to get there. It's the small little things done consistently that make the big change.
    Have you thought about your intention(s) for the year? If so, I’d love to hear what they are! Email them to me at Deanna@wellandworthylife.com

    #111-A Journey into Plant Based Eating

    #111-A Journey into Plant Based Eating

    I’m excited to introduce you to someone I recently started working with. Allison La Bianca manages all aspects of my podcast and has been a huge help to me but little did I know all the things she is capable of doing! When I asked her to help me work on my Balanced Eating Method Program to help people incorporate more plant based eating into their lifestyle I found she’s been eating that way for over a decade! Her journey into plant based eating has helped those around her see how easy it can be.
    Losing her mom to cancer as a teenager was the catalyst for many of the choices she has made for her life to date; plant based eating being one of them. Before healthy eating for vegans was easily accessible, Allison learned the value it had for her overall health. In those early days it took some creativity for her to go out with friends and find ways to embrace this new lifestyle. We talk about what the journey into plant based eating initially looked and felt like, her favorite go-to’s and cultivating a mindset for healthy eating. 
    Being a yoga teacher as well, she uses the practice to tune into her body and listen to what it’s really asking for. Allison brings many aspects of her lifestyle together as a yoga teacher by inviting others in on the journey towards their own wholeness. She ignites an adventurous spirit in others by leading yoga retreats around the world where she helps participants slow down, tune in and listen to what their own soul is longing to say all while serving delicious plant based meals throughout the retreat!
    Stay connected to Allison and learn about her upcoming Awaken & Free yoga retreats on her instagram or website.
    If you’re looking for support incorporating more plant based eating into your lifestyle, join Melanie and I in our Balanced Eating Method.

Molly is a licensed dietician and nutritionist specializing in glucose control, metabolism and weight loss. She works as a dietician at NutriSense, a health technology company. At NutriSense they leverage continuous glucose monitors as a way to optimize diet, health and overall wellbeing.

NutriSense works with people who have type two diabetes as well as the general healthy population. They support those who are curious about their health and want to know how to respond to different variables in their life. Using a continuous glucose monitor is one way to provide better insight into your body and metabolism. It lets you know how you’re processing different foods, how you respond to different workouts and how you respond to stress and sleep.
    The continuous glucose monitor helps those at NutriSense identify anything that's going on within the users body. Staying up on any potential yellow flags early on allows modifications to made.  Down the road, any of these adverse issues or the progression of a specific disease can potentially be avoided. When you work with NutriSense using the CGM, you are connected with a dietician who can support you and guide you in your health journey.

    #109 - Living with Balance - Reflections with the Balance Community

    #109 - Living with Balance - Reflections with the Balance Community

    Living with balance starts with mindset not a rigid checklist of things to do that only set you up for failure. How can you get your mind right so everything else falls into place? My Balance program is a great place to start! In today's episode, I'm talking with a few of my inner circle Balance members about their experience.
    Trying to conquer everything at once can be overwhelming. In balance we break it down into smaller pieces to feel successful with each step. It's more about feeling and living the second half of our life as your best. And it can be! Knowing the things you can do to make yourself feel better is key. Joining balance can help you maneuver through the chaos and stress while staying grounded in the process.
    The balance program is always at your fingertips, available when you need to return to it. It's a culture that celebrates progress over perfection and gives you the tools you need to look and feel your best! The app gives you a place to communicate with the group regularly when you need to be inspired and encouraged along your journey. If you enjoy the community aspect of Balance, you can stay on for the inner circle membership. The inner circle allows you to go deeper with continued support when you need it. We dive into a new topic each month that's allows us to relate to one another and bring the encouragement we're looking for.
    As I believe, we always do better in community!
    With the new year only days away, tune into this episode to see how living with balance is possible in this community.
    Take the chance and invest in yourself.  When you do you're saying to yourself, "Hey, I am important."
