STOP SWEATING THE SMALL STUFF

ASHLEY DIER APPRECIATES SWEAT AND YOU SHOULD TOO


Sweat shaming, is it really a thing? By now we've all seen the article, woman walks into a Starbucks after a run, is made to feel uncomfortable because of her sweat, goes home writes about her experience and how she feels she was sweat shamed, article goes viral. People react - some in support, some against, claiming the female author to be "too emotional" (typical).

ASWAGHANDA GINSENG

ACADEMY OF LIONS NUTRITIONIST NATHALIE WANTS YOU TO TRY SOME GINSENG

This root has been a staple in Ayurvedic Apothecaries for centuries. The name literally translates to “smell of horse” which explains why you may not want to add it to your yogurt parfait in the morning. That being said, its list of benefits is long in spite of the fact that it’s mechanism of action is still under study.

FIRST STEPS

A PAIR OF INSPIRATIONAL LADIES TALK WITH DHANI ABOUT FIRST STEPS

I sit down with Natalie Lodge & Jenny McConnell, who both have their stories of starting with a single step. These ladies have accomplished a lot in the past couple of years from running marathons to coaching to competing in the CrossFit Open. But none of it would have been possible without a single decision that changed the course of their lives and the lives of everyone they have helped & inspired in the process.

We tawwwlk about...

  • the difficulty of moving past bad habits and unsupportive friends
  • how finding your "sport" or "thing" is the key to living an optimal life
  • the challenges females may face in pursuit of their vision
  • what JUST starting is more important than anything
  • plus, I make Jenny cry
