Joy, Pain, + The Medicine of Connection

Joy, Pain, + The Medicine of Connection

The first time I felt a twinge in my left shoulder was around six months ago, right around the time I first heard of a thing called “frozen shoulder”. I was reading A Really Good Day by Ayelet Waldman to learn more about micro-dosing for depression and anxiety and in it, she talked about herContinue Reading

Health Coach Real Talk (spoiler: it’s not about massaging kale)

Health Coach Real Talk (spoiler: it’s not about massaging kale)

Being a health coach is amazing, and often surprising, work. Most people think health coaches are folks who will make you quit eating ice cream, force you to massage the kale, and do many burpees. Who the hell wants to massage a salad? That’s zero percent sexy! And, certainly, there are health coaches who doContinue Reading

Solid Support for Uncertain Times

Solid Support for Uncertain Times

  There are so many things going through my mind these days.   So many new connections, as well as thoughts on our pandemic lack of human connection, are coming at me rapid fire.   And then there was that whole solar eclipse WTF.   DID YOU SEE IT? WILD! I can’t stop looking atContinue Reading

Cannabis + Community + Connection

Cannabis + Community + Connection

As you’ve likely noticed by now, I’ve dipped my toes into the waters of the cannabis industry. Yup. Weed. Shifting my own perception of cannabis from “drugs” to “medicine” was a powerful catalyst. It allowed me to use it differently, pay attention to dosing, to my environment, and to my interaction with different strains, and methodsContinue Reading

Roots + Roadtripping

Roots + Roadtripping

Omg, you guys. HELLO. I don’t even know what to do with myself right now. You should see my outfit. I’m wearing my Rocky Balboa sweats with a poncho and a baseball cap. I’ve been gone so long I forgot how to do regular life. Though, arguably, I’m doing it just right with this getContinue Reading

Drive, Motivation, Desire: On Hunger

Drive, Motivation, Desire: On Hunger

  Here is part 3 in this series on Hunger. (Here’s Part 1 + Part 2) Hunger as desire + drive. I can’t think of anything I’ve ever done that wasn’t somehow rooted in the desire to prove to my dad he was wrong about me. Every job, every relationship, every choice I can thinkContinue Reading

Love Might Not Be *All* You Need, But Good Grief It’s Important: On Emotional Hunger

Love Might Not Be *All* You Need, But Good Grief It’s Important: On Emotional Hunger

Last week, as part of an ongoing invitation to overhaul your definition of hunger so we can develop a more allied, than adversarial, relationship with our own hungers, I wrote about physical hunger. This week I’m writing about emotional hunger. In nutrition school I learned an interesting way of conceptualizing nourishment as “primary and secondaryContinue Reading

Not Starving: Physical Hunger

Not Starving: Physical Hunger

Last week I talked about overhauling your definition of hunger from being shameful, flawed, and unattractive to being an ardent mechanism for knowing what is the next right thing to do.  I mentioned three main presentations of hunger: Physical, Emotional, + Drive. Here’s the next installment , where I say more stuff about physical hunger.Continue Reading

Invitation to Overhaul Your Definition of Hunger

Invitation to Overhaul Your Definition of Hunger

  We don’t want to be thin because thinness is inherently life-affirming or lovable or healthy. If this were true, there would be no tribes in Africa in which women are fat and regal and long-lived. There would be no history of matriarchies in which women’s fecundity and sheer physical abundance were worshiped.  We wantContinue Reading

Are Depression + Anxiety the New Normal?

Are Depression + Anxiety the New Normal?

  Depression and anxiety might be the new normal for people who feel.   I say that without having done a scientific study, this thought is coming exclusively from my own experience with my life and my contact with clients.   Seems like when living in a culture of fear and diaspora, depression and anxietyContinue Reading
