Ep. 3.1 Cait Flanders on Money Healing + Being a Mindful Consumer

How would your life be different if you had a healthier relationship with money? What if you were more intentional about what you brought into your life? As we all recover, especially financially, from the holidays, now is the perfect time to do a bit of healing around money and our habits moving forward. 

So to kick off a brand new season of the podcast, I have Cait Flanders, bestselling author of the book The Year of Less, with me to talk about her refreshing take on being more mindful when it comes to money and beyond.

We talk about why money conversations are hard, how to avoid the money shame and defensiveness, how to celebrate money wins, what being a mindful consumer is and how to do it, the deep work that happens after you change negative habits, the importance of getting outside and connecting with nature, and more.

How to Enjoy the Winter

We've packed away the holiday decor. Our dried out pine trees are lining the streets, sadly waiting to be taken away to their final resting place. And any magic from the holiday season is now a passing memory that we cling on to as we endure until the first buds of Spring. We are now entering into what is commonly looked at as the Bland Days of Winter. But fear not. It doesn't have to be such a depressing thing. We don't have to just power through until Springtime. There is so much take advantage of this time of year, and I’m here to share my top three tips for Winter survival.

Ep. 2.7: The Gift of Peru

For the last half of October, I had the opportunity to study in and explore the magical land of Peru. And while there is so much to rave about - the ruins, the landscape, the history - I found that there is something else going on there. Something I could try and learn and take home with me.

In this episode, I not only explore fun audio clips from my adventures, but I also share the secret to Peruvian happiness - the power of giving.

Ep. 2.6: The Power of Travel

Travel is commonly viewed as an escape, a luxury, and sometimes even a burden. But to me, traveling is a vital part of being a part of the human race. Motivated by my recent travels to Peru, the topic of travel is fresh in my mind. And it's a topic I'm very passionate about if you can't already tell. 

Maybe you feel the same way, but to help you think about travel a little bit differently or perhaps give you some permission to listen to your own wanderlust whisperings, I’ve come up with a little list I call 'The 3 Gets and 3 Gives of Travel' list - three things you’ll get out of it and three things you get to give, or in other words, three reasons why the world needs you to travel. I think you'll dig it.
