WANTcast 058: On Fat-Phobia + Changing Your Self-Concept with Patricia Moreno of intenSati

the WANTcast

As a fitness star at the top of her field, Patricia Moreno appeared to have it all, but knew she was both living and selling a lie: preaching that diet and exercise were the keys to true happiness, while inside she was suffering under a heavy spell of shame and unworthiness. She knew there was more to life, and made it her mission to find the answer and break that spell for everyone suffering the same as her.

Fitness is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves. But we also need to train our mind and our heart at the same time. - @intenSati Click To Tweet

After adventures that took her around the world studying, meditating and practicing with gurus and scholars, Patricia created the intenSati Method and began to reshape the fitness industry, and the lives of tens of thousands from the inside-out. Today she’s speaking up and calling out the very methods and mindset that she used to be a part of. She is on a mission tear down the body-shaming self-objectifying thin-ideal norms, and show what self love in action truly looks and feels like.

In this episode, we talk about Patricia’s journey from a girl whose parents put her on a diet at eight years old, to the thought leader and powerhouse she is today. We talk about fat-phobia, and the way our culture (and the fitness industry!) keeps us limiting ourselves without us even KNOWING. We talk about keeping secrets and hitting rock bottom when it looks like you’re at the top. We talk about how to achieve the changes you’re after, and how physicality is only part of making those changes. We talk about where we are, where we’ve been, and where we MUST go if we want to move forward fearlessly in our lives.

You’re not going to want to miss a beat.

WANTcast 057: Treating Yourself The Way You’d Want To Be Treated

the WANTcast

You’ve probably heard “Talk to yourself like you’d talk to someone you love” as foolproof advice to shift your negative self-talk. Easy, right?

But if this is the way to a healthier internal dialogue…then why doesn’t it work? Why it it so hard to talk lovingly to ourselves like we’d talk lovingly to someone we care a great deal about?

Here’s why: it’s hard because we’re not talking to people this way.

This episode is all about why “would you say that to a friend?!” is half-baked advice, and how to really practice shifting the script instead.

WANTcast 056: On Owning Your Awesome with Tricia Huffman of Your Joyologist

WANTcast 056: On Owning Your Awesome with Tricia Huffman of Your Joyologist

the WANTcast

I’m always inspired by women who’ve done their own thing and forged their own path. Especially when they’re functioning on pure passion. And especially when they’ve left something familiar and safe to do so.

Tricia Huffman‘s been there…twice. First, leaving her secure office job to follow her passion of working in live music production – and second, leaving her successful music production job to follow her passion of living your best life. Neither of which, by the way, were kick-started by anything but pure heart and an unwavering belief in herself that she could.

Tricia wasn’t just a leader in her industry, she was one of the only women in her industry. By asking lots of questions, following her heart, and having a hunger to learn, Tricia went from selling shirts at the House Of Blues to literally running the show on tour for pretty much every big-name artist you’ve heard of…you name it, she’s worked with them. As a woman working in a male-dominated field, Tricia always made sure to stay down-to-earth, empathetic, and thirsty for knowledge. Six years and countless worldwide tours later, Tricia was successful, well-loved, and had created both career and community. On the outside, she was living the dream. And on the inside, she was loving it.

And then, something happened that changed her perspective: her father passed away suddenly.

After taking time off from the road to sit and reevaluate life, pursuing what made her healthy and happy, she realized that she had an intense pull to help others do the same. She wanted to do something more with her life: to help people live passionately and purposefully. She saw that everyone, including the people we think “have it all,” don’t feel fulfilled. She first created her “Joyology” to keep artists healthy, ground and inspired in body and mind while on tour.

People like Tricia inspire me because they are actual living proof that following your passion and sense of purpose always works the way it needs to – even if the vision morphs along the way. Now off the road and coaching others both one-on-one and in groups, she’s got a whole line of products to go with her biz, called Your Joyologist, including a brand new beautiful app called – you guessed it – Own Your Awesome.

Tricia’s been in the business of real-deal feel-good since way before social media was a thing. And here’s what I love most about her: she’s all about the rogue affirmations. Most people in the feel-good biz will shower their people with “You Are Beautiful”s and “Abundance Is Yours”s and say see ya. But Tricia? She digs deeper.

It was me. I needed to have that breakthrough: I am enough. Click To Tweet

While this coversation starts with a little bit of a venting session on both our parts, I decided to keep it in because I think it’s a GREAT example of productive venting, which is quite different from aimless complaining. Bitching about social media is becoming a “thing” ON social media (lol, the irony), however a lot of what I read simply talks about how annoying and tiring it all is…and places blame on everyone else for the rules we’re supposed to follow.

But really…who tells us we are “supposed” to follow them? Nope, no one but ourselves. Which leads me to my absolute FAVORITE part of this interview with Tricia: where we dive in and dig deep about how to distance ourselves from our need for validation, and how to take accountability and responsibility even when we feel something is entirely someone else’s fault. Tricia knows how it feels to be resistant, and she knows what it means to OWN YOUR AWESOME. But she didn’t get there without getting real with herself and examining what was actually getting in her way.

Take a listen and let me know what you think!

WANTcast 055: Making (And Keeping) Goals That Are Actually Right For You (Vs. What Looks Or Sounds Good)

WANTcast 055: Making (And Keeping) Goals That Are Actually Right For You (Vs. What Looks Or Sounds Good)

the WANTcast

In this episode of the WANTcast, one of our listeners asked to hear about how to make (and keep!) life goals that are realistic and are actually right for you, not just what looks or sounds good or “right.”

What’s right for one person isn’t necessarily right for another – and what’s unrealistic to one person might be more attainable for you than you think.

Some questions to ask yourself, some red flags to look out for, how to figure out goals that work for you, and yes – how to actually go about ACHIEVING them (no bs here, folks).

the WANTcast

It’s Friday, and it’s time for some THINKING OUT LOUD. If you’re new here, our THINKING OUT LOUD WANTcast episodes are very loosely structured solo episides of me riffing off of whatever thoughts are on my mind lately.

I often pair them with an Instagram post so you can follow along easy-peasy. Here’s the one that goes with today’s episode.

On deck for today:

– The difference between following inspiration and following an aesthetic

– Being a tourist in your own city and what kinds of life lessons that brings up

– Being a good person vs making sure a lot of people THINK you’re a good person

– Body pride + mental well-being

…and SO much more.

WANTcast 052: On Expanded Consciousness + Entrepreneurship In The Digital Age with Ksenia Avdulova of Breakfast Criminals + Woke And Wired Podcast

WANTcast 052: On Expanded Consciousness + Entrepreneurship In The Digital Age with Ksenia Avdulova of Breakfast Criminals + Woke And Wired Podcast

the WANTcast

Ksenia Avdulova is a FORCE to be reckoned with in the digital world. Ksenia is a speaker, social media strategist, and founder of @breakfastcriminals, an award-nominated digital platform known for its influential online presence and offline experiences that merge food and mindfulness. You’ve probably seen her gorgeous acai and smoothie bowls on Instagram in her signature “heart bowl.”

Ksenia‘s conscious social media methodology, Hashtag Mindful, is rooted in the idea that social media is a tool to share our message, expand our success, and create a positive impact. She has been a workshop leader and speaker at the United Nations GirlUp summit and other empowerment-centered events and retreats around the world. Ksenia is also a featured marketing teacher on Skillshare and co-founder of @crystalcriminals.

In her podcastWoke and Wired, Ksenia and her guests have unfiltered conversations about expanded consciousness and entrepreneurship in the digital age.

Ksenia has created something REALLY special through Woke and Wired. After binge listening to the first few episodes, I was immediately certain that this is the missing piece we need in a wellness culture that values spirituality over practicality, and a business culture that values the bottom line over looking inside. I am so inspired by these intelligent and nuanced conversations that Ksenia leads with such grace, ease, and mindfulness. There’s truly nothing else like it.

Whether you’re looking to use the internet to build out a business, stumped on how/when to monetize, curious what goes on behind the scenes (and screens) of influencers, or you’re just wondering how the heck to stay grounded and centered in our Like!-Post!-Share! culture, this is a conversation you’re going to want to come back to over and over again.

Grab a pen, take notes, and come hang with us.
