Stepping Into Your Power Years

285: Stepping Into Your Power Years

I have coached hundreds of women as they transition into menopause.

I have interviewed and been mentored by dozens of professionals who specialize in women’s health at midlife.

Heck, I AM a woman in midlife.

All this to say…

I have learned a few things about the menopausal years, most notably perhaps, is that it is both an ending AND a BEGINNING!

And this podcast is dedicated to helping you make the most of that beginning:)

The life changing skill of becoming your own coach.

284: The life changing skill of becoming your own coach.

It took me a very large chunk of my career to realize that if I truly wanted to empower my clients to live their life in a way that nourishes their health, I needed to teach them how to lead NOT to follow.

I think it took me a while to figure this out because I had never been a part of a community that taught health through the lens of self-leadership.

So, I created one.

In this episode of the Grace & Grit podcast, TWO members from the Rumble & Rise community share their experiences and how the skills they have learned helped them to mend the relationship they have with themselves and fortified their confidence to direct their own lives.

There is the old (and outdated) path to health.

Mental Health IS Health

282: Mental Health IS Health

Since it is Mental Health Awareness Month, I thought it would be a GREAT time to remind Grace & Grit Podcast listeners that there is NO health without mental health.

The state of your mental health permeates every decision you make, every relationship you have, every cell of your humanity, and pretty much every moment of your life.

So why is mental health NOT the very first thing we give attention to when our life is feeling off-kilter?

I think it should be:)

In this week’s podcast episode I elaborate on why we need to amplify the importance of mental health in EVERY health conversation and every strategy we use to improve our lives.

Check it out. And if it helps, please consider sharing it.

The Dieting Game Is Rigged

281: The Dieting Game Is Rigged

Regardless if it is intentional or not, most diets are set up for you to fail in 3 ways:

They market to your insecurities.

They do not take into consideration your unique individuality or the wholeness of your life.

They don’t teach the real skillsets of sustainable behavior change.

In this episode of the Grace & Grit podcast, I do a deep dive into how the dieting game is rigged and, more importantly, give you REAL solutions to the challenges that compel you to sign up for them again and again.

When the data says your "well" but you feel far from it.

275: When the data says you’re “well” but you feel far from it.

I can’t tell you the number of women I have worked with over the years who hired me because they don’t feel well even though their blood profiles and hormone panels say that everything is just fine.

Is it all in their head?

No. There is simply more to the story that they have yet to uncover.

In this episode of the Grace & Grit podcast, I help listeners explore what else might be at play and it’s probably not what you think.
