After a big pause (geez, moving is hard!), I am back with a new podcast on morning routines! I recorded this podcast back in May with My Morning Routine co-creater Benjamin Spall, right before the launch of the blog's amazing My Morning Routine book. As you might know by now, I am a big believer in the power of self-care morning routines and love learning how other people begin their days. In this podcast (and their awesome book), Benjamin shares the morning routines of some the most creative and effective people in our world today. Listen and get inspired to create your own dynamic morning routine!
Are you sacrificing your feminist values for a stable paycheck? Do you want to take more socially-conscious risks in your career but feel afraid? Stephanie Newman shows women how to create real businesses that align with their deeper feminist values while making good money.
During our conversation, we speak about the myth of "needing" to stay at your office job, how feminist values can create a viable business, and the stories of our grandmothers (and how they influence our current ventures). Listen and learn how to bring more feminism into your career - the world really needs it!
Most recently, Stephanie launched an online course that teaches socially conscious women how to launch their businesses. You can find it at feministinbubator.co.
Laura Moser is a mother, journalist, author, and she is running for Congress in Texas's 7th district. She represents a new phase of American politics - one where compassionate citizens step forward to make a difference.
Listen to our conversation to learn why Laura's decided to run (it happened right after she took my Self Care 101 program!), how she handles the constant criticism that comes with putting herself out there, and the simple ways she practices self-care on the campaign trail.

My partner Micah and I decided to do something a little risky: talk about our relationship for the podcast. We discuss our first date, the day I told him I was pregnant and how we practice self-care as new parents. It’s a little personal and a little awkward - just the two of us having a conversation. Also, I’ve upgraded to better sound quality. I hope you enjoy!
During this highly-interactive workshop we'll go beyond the basic recommendations of eating a good breakfast and exercising three times a week. You already know that stuff, right?
Instead, we'll learn the real, nitty-gritty self-care that can move your life forward in the most powerful and wonderful ways.
Together, we’ll learn:
The biggest misconception about self-care (and how it’s keeping you stuck)
The three self-care practices that will move your life forward
The super easy way to make sure you’re getting enough self-care, every single day
Truly, this is the self-care that's taken me decades to learn and, once I did, it completely transformed my life. I'm really looking forward to breaking it all down so it can be much easier for you and so you can even have fun in the process!

If you're having a low moment, listen to this podcast! In it, I "heartstorm" with Jingo Lewis, the creator of the super natural and yummy Neitra skincare line. We talk about how our culture leads us astray in our pursuit of looking good and the incredibly simple ways to reconnect to our natural beauty, starting with our skin and moving to every aspect of our being. In full honesty, I started this conversation in a bit of a funk and Jingo's spirit lifted me right up. I know it will for you too!

Rebecca had been dabbling in self-care for a while before joining Self Care 101. Working on her self-care habits in a more concentrated way not only helped her feel healthier in her body, but also opened the door to a whole new level of authenticity in her work and relationships.
Listen to our conversation and learn how Rebecca used her daily habits to get honest about her deeper needs and desires. Be inspired to discover your own truth and use self-care to start sharing it with the world!
Arielle, who was in my pilot group for Self Care 101, was one of the first ladies who showed me the incredible connection between self-care and self-love.

This is part of the ongoing series on self-love and self-care I’m hosting this fall. Listen and learn how to use self-care to stop looking everywhere for love (because you’ve finally found it in yourself).
