Dana Barron and Bridget Shannon are the two hilarious bloggers behind Wellness Lately, a site they started with the goal of sharing all of the wellness info and #inspo we can handle – with a healthy dose of cynicism and humor!

 

But we end up going waaaaaay deeper than your typical wellness in this conversation. We get into things like our subconscious thoughts, privilege, and diversity: the kind of holistic discussions we are going to bring you more of in Finding Your Shine, with all of the laughs + light that you’ve gotten used to over these many months!

 

We Chat About:

  • How Wellness Lately came to be
  • The blog + how writing is Bridgett and Dana’s form of expression
  • Thoughts on alcohol breaks
  • Imposter syndrome as writers
  • Planning content
  • Time management
  • Dana + Bridget’s advice on feeling stuck
  • Working non-traditional jobs – now with babies!
  • Mom life and what that looks like as an entrepreneur
  • Stop pretending like you’re perfect on social media
  • Wellness is so much more than trends + kale
  • How your beliefs affect your wellness
  • White privilege
  • Leading with compassion + intelligence
  • Wellness Lately is starting a podcast in the Fall!
  • We all have the ability to do SOMETHING, no matter what community or industry we’re in

Far too often, our problems as women are chalked up to hormones or menstruation or just being whiny, but we know our bodies and we deserve to be listened to – especially by our medical professionals. Women’s pain just isn’t taken as seriously as men’s, and that’s a problem.

 

But today’s guest Bethany Holmes, AKA The Healthy B, has a story about one of her own health issues that just resonated with us so so so much. Really, it’s like a soap opera – you can almost hear Liz + Nina eating popcorn in the background!

 

And if you weren’t aware, Wine & Shine is now FINDING YOUR SHINE! We’ve grown a lot as people over the past two or so years and we wanted to make a change to the show to reflect that. But don’t worry – you’re still going to get the same incredible guests and the same fun conversations, all in the same place!

 

We Chat About:

  • Moving from the Midwest to NYC (and then back to the Midwest)
  • Becoming more aware of the stress in your body
  • Being your own self-advocate
  • Suffering through nine months of pain without anyone listening to you
  • Going through a five-hour brain surgery
  • What does a coach do?
  • Discovering jackfruit
  • Trypophobia: a fear of holes, bumps, and clusters
  • Sharing energies over the phone
  • Learning about yourself through Reiki
  • Why Bethany is such a huge supporter of doTERRA essential oils

Christina Rice is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Primal Health Coach (with a unique background in psychology and film) dedicated to helping you find YOUR version of wellness so you can live your healthiest life. She’s also a host of two podcasts: Wellness Realness and Straight Up Paleo.

 

Christina doesn’t mince words in this episode, sharing everything she thinks about some of the trends in the nutrition and wellness industry – like the problem with intuitive eating and why it doesn’t work for everybody (at least not without putting in some work to heal first) – why we all need to invest more in ourselves, and what she believes are the best first steps anyone can take to start fixing their own health.

 

We Chat About:

  • The unfortunate reality of healthcare
  • YOU are the best product that you could possibly invest in!
  • Looking for a personal quarterback
  • How Christina’s psychology background affects her nutrition work
  • The different definitions of mindful eating
  • Learning to quiet your mind
  • Creating boundaries for yourself and your technology
  • Your first step should be becoming more aware of what you’re eating – not cutting everything out
  • Whole foods diet
  • The different reasons we crave food
  • You’ll never fix your health problems if you don’t get your stress in check
