Episode Date
418. Why We’re Leaving LA
01:00:50
Everything is as it was, and everything has changed. Lindsey is closing the door on her LA chapter and moving back to New York. Krista is contemplating motherhood and a potential move to Austin. Today, they give gratitude to the city that gifted them life-long connections, boundless creativity, and the opportunity to live out their authentic truth. Not to mention, drop woo-woo one-liners in social circles without any sense of irony! They also open up about the harder edges of LA life; from the hollowness of Hollywood and spiraling homelessness crisis to the impact of the pandemic on local businesses.  If you were waiting for an LA-bashing episode, this isn’t it. This is a celebration of what is, what’s coming, and what the hell was that? It’s an active shedding of old beliefs, and a permission slip to re-write the rules, lean into your intuition, go big, and go (to a new) home.  We also talk about: Celebrating community and creativity in LA Sober reflections on Hollywood industry Trusting your decisions, following your truth Our next destinations!  Why it’s normal to feel hesitant about starting a family  Creating narratives in your head Spirituality 2.0 Friendship transitions Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!

417. Embrace Your Inner Troublemaker with Luvvie Ajayi
01:19:43
We all have a troublemaker inside of us: that part of us gets put in its place at an early age. It's up to us to learn how to awaken this part of ourselves — that's what Luvvie Ajayi is all about. The troublemaker is the part of us that's committed to pushing past the fear. Luvvie almost let fear make her say no to the TED talk that ultimately changed her life. Inspired by that event, her book https://amzn.to/3fOwcRK (Professional Troublemaker: The Fear-Fighter Manual) is full of Luvvie's trademark wit and warmth while dispensing life-changing advice. It's so important that we shake things up in society and culture and stand up for what we believe in. Being a troublemaker means being a changemaker, and we all know the world is ready for some change. That's why we're here, right? We also talk about: Doing the thing that feels too easy How imposter syndrome is the cousin of fear How Luvvie almost passed up a life defining moment due to fear Being purposeful about who you reach out to for advice The importance of being fearless The pros and cons of social media Bringing about constructive conversations Writing your life’s mission statement Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!

416. Lonely on Your Spiritual Path?
01:14:34
The path to spiritual awakening can be so lonely. Chances are, the people in your life are going to be skeptical, especially if they haven't made space for their own growth. They'll sow doubt, and can make you feel alone, different, and isolated from the world you thought you knew.  Too much outside noise and influence started to make Krista feel like she was doing something wrong by going on this journey – but she had to trust her gut above all else. When you know in your heart and soul that you're doing the right thing, you HAVE to keep pushing forward – even when society tries to tell you that you're wrong or make you feel unsafe. Throughout this type of transition, things will feel shaky, and uneasy. You may lose some friends (let's be honest, you probably will). But it's all part of making space for your own growth. On the other side, you're going to find a beautiful support system, and a powerful alignment to who you TRULY are that feels better than you could have imagined. We also talk about: Coming to the realization of how lonely the spiritual journey can be Knowing that you are never alone Having a relationship with Source Embracing change + letting go of the illusion of permanence Being unattached to how others think Outsourcing our intuition Building up a new community Being comfortable in solitude Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!

415. Body Acceptance Roundtable
01:49:27
Body image is something women are acutely aware of from a young age, and a topic we don’t shy away from on Almost 30. Everyone - no matter what they look like - has a complicated relationship with their body, and it’s important not to judge or assume things based on how someone looks. In today’s conversation, K+L got together with close friends and influencers Shayla Quinn + Britney Vest for a roundtable reality session to shine a light on the internal dialogue we all have around weight and body image. Although our stories are different, we all still experience hardships and shame around our bodies. It takes years of reprogramming and conscious effort to change the narratives we’ve grown up with about our bodies, but it is possible to get to a place of love and acceptance. . Shayla and Britney talk about when they first started noticing their bodies, how well-meaning people can warp our self-perspective, and how we can learn to move on from the need for validation. We’re so grateful that they’re willing to vulnerably share their experience with all of us, remind us that we’re not alone, and that truly loving and accepting ourselves is the most powerful and healing thing we can do.  We also talk about: Where our body image issues come from How diet culture benefits from our insecurities Changing your relationship with weight loss Healing the need for validation The lessons we pick up from our parents The power of showing up Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!

414. Celestial Lifestyle + Speaking Her Truth in Hard Times with Jordan Younger
01:56:44
Jordan Younger aka The Balanced Blonde is a longtime friend of the show, fellow podcast host of Soul On Fire, blogger, author, and wellness educator. Jordan joins K+L to talk about her healing journey that has led to her own intuitive way of eating called the "celestial lifestyle." We talk about what she’s learned from years of visiting doctors and healers, and self-experimentation, to deal with her Lyme disease and other health issues. Jordan is committed to sharing her story for others who may not have access to those resources, making her a beloved educator in the wellness space. As such, she has been the subject of negative commentary in the media. They get into how to speak your truth in hard times and what Jordan is doing to take action against a defamatory article written about her recently. Jordan is profoundly heart-centered and full of integrity and such a joy to listen to, and we’re excited to share openly and honestly in this episode! We also talk about: Moving on from your old story Returning to an intuitive diet after a lifetime of built up food habits and addictions What the celestial diet is Jordan’s health journey and public battle with Lyme disease How some journalists choose clickbait over truth Making wellness accessible Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!

413. Cancel Culture, Moral Superiority, and the Woke Cult with Africa Brooke
01:41:20
It's incredible how empowering it can be to bring in different perspectives to our decision making process. When we ask questions, do research, trust ourselves, consult with multiple authorities, and make decisions from there, then we can truly feel secure in our choices, regardless of the outcome. That's what we dive into on today’s podcast with Africa Brooke: a mindset coach, business consultant, podcaster, and speaker, who specializes in helping people overcome what is commonly known as self-sabotage.  This conversation covers  woke culture (and toxic forms of it), self-censorship, cancel culture, and so much more. They also dive into Africa's journey to sobriety, and how she developed self-responsibility from that. This episode is a reminder that we live in a world of endless creativity. If we cut off that creativity by putting ourselves into a shameful mindset, or preventing ourselves from moving away from our past, we're doing a disservice to ourselves and to the world. Africa encourages us to stay open-minded, take what works for us, and create our own opinion. We also talk about: How sobriety has led to radical responsibility Why being offended robs you of your power The moral superiority trap Fighting the pull to join the cancel culture mob How people are leveraging language Being wary of self-censorship Moving towards being solution-oriented instead of problem-oriented Cultivating confidence within yourself Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!

Ep. 412 - Sophia Amoruso: What Success Means to Her Now
01:12:33
Sophia Amoruso is back — and she’s been on quite the journey. Known as the founder of Girlboss, she’s stepped out into a new adventure by starting Business Class, an MBA-like program that walks people through the entrepreneurial journey. Sophia knows when she’s ready to step away from a current project, regardless of its success, and that’s something admirable in an entrepreneur. She embodies the intuition-led actions that we are all about at Almost 30: Doing things differently, not being afraid to fail, and not letting others’ judgment get in the way of doing what works for us. We also talk about: Aligning your life and business with your priority Not having to reinvent the wheel The balance of mindset and tactics in business The importance of being versed on the legal side of business Why you shouldn’t work with friends Keeping up your mental health as an entrepreneur Being 99% sober Who Business Class is for Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!

01:31:13
Dr. Nicole LePera, better known as https://www.instagram.com/the.holistic.psychologist/ (@the.holistic.psychologist), is a clinical psychologist who is well-known for sharing inspiring content on Instagram to give people the tools they need to take healing into their own hands.

Even though it’s called “self-healing,” no healing is truly done in isolation; it takes a village. We talk about learning to lean on others without falling into codependency patterns, creating positive boundaries, and setting up expectations in your relationships. Wherever you are in your healing journey, Dr. Nicole is going to help you do the work. We also talk about: Developing communities for self-healing Balancing self-guided healing and healing through others Realizing where to define boundaries Finding your childhood archetypes Taking the mask off and being yourself How to make a meaningful, heartfelt apology Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!

Ep. 409 - Overcoming the Fear of Feedback with Dr. Therese Huston
01:20:45
Feedback — both giving and receiving it — is such an integral part of life. These are often the pivotal moments that define our futures. So why do so many of us suck at feedback… and how do we get better? Therese Huston, a cognitive scientist at Seattle University, literally wrote the book on feedback. “Let’s Talk” blends research with personal stories that share how to say what needs to be said in a way that people hear what they need to hear. And remote work makes things more complicated with a new set of etiquette that we haven’t mastered yet! So, let’s learn to make the most of feedback moments so that we can do our best work and lift others up as well. We also talk about: The difference in digital feedback The negativity bias and how to combat it when giving feedback The nuances between different communication methods How we wrap up our identity in our work Why we dread giving and receiving feedback Handling feedback during short-term relationships Creating a culture of feedback How to best integrate feedback in your life Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!

Ep. 407 - How to Heal the Mother Wound with Bethany Webster
01:41:00
Bethany Webster is a global expert on healing the “Mother Wound,” something K+L have been intimately working with for a while now. It’s the source of so much trauma in our lives, with generation after generation of mothers passing along the damaging beliefs embedded into them by the patriarchy and their parents. But Bethany helps women heal this core wound by teaching them how to discover and tap into their “Inner Mother.” The Mother Wound feeds into all areas of our life, from our diets to our interactions with other women to our own self-worth. It’s foundational to the way we interact with the world. How incredible would it be, then, to change it for the better? Way better.

Ep. 406 - Embracing the In-Between
46:31
Lindsey was single for seven years, and it wasn’t until about five years in that she realized the purpose of that season in her life, that she stopped trying to find validation, reason, and purpose solely in a relationship. Being in a committed relationship now, she is in the unique position to look back on how powerful reconnecting to herself during that time was and how it opened her up to be able to connect with another person like she had never been capable of before. So, what is the source of this pressure to find a partner? Let’s look inside and find out.

Ep. 404 - Receiving: How Productivity Keeps Us From the Life We Want
49:53
Almost 30 has gone through a lot of growth lately! We launched our membership, did a complete rebrand, and built out entirely new systems. And as that all settled, Krista’s first thought was: What’s next? But it is so, SO important that we make time and space to receive from all of the hard work that we put in. We can get so caught up in the manifesting and the goal-setting that we forget to actually enjoy the fruits of our labor. Receiving and expressing gratitude are huge parts of manifesting, and we have to be able to receive all the things we’re striving for. We talk about: The focus in our culture on productivity - and how we can get out of it How to work on your unconscious beliefs to support your ability to receive  Understanding the importance of receiving How to feel what it feels like receiving in your body Being present and paying attention to your life and why it’s important Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!

Ep. 399 - The Joy of Healing with Devi Brown
01:31:08
THE INTERVIEW So many women are so afraid to pivot and follow their calling when they’ve found something that’s comfortable. At the height of her career, Devi Brown was interviewing greats in the music industry such as Quincy Jones and Kendrick Lamar, but she felt called to do something else with her life. So she mustered up the courage to leave her dream job and dove into a world of personal growth and spirituality. Now she is a Reiki healer, founder of KARMA BLISS, and an advocate for creating more space for women of color in the wellness industry — both as educators and as participants. She talks about taking that leap, the growth she’s done throughout quarantine, how she’s owned it, some of her favorite modes of healing, and being a mother. We also talk about: Making an internal pivot The mindset around money and abundance necessary for taking a leap Discerning your true call versus your ego’s call Being mindful of the media we consume Finding joy in the healing journey Doing the inner child work Devi’s favorite healing modalities Body love and acceptance Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!

Ep. 398 - Why Being Disciplined Has Given Me More Freedom
51:13
THE INTERVIEW Late in her life, Lindsey had the realization that she deeply deserved discipline. Creative types like to tell themselves that any sort of structure or discipline is only going to hinder and restrict their creativity. But, actually, creativity is like a puppy: You have to train it in order for it to be happy and feel safe. Lindsey dives into her journey to create discipline around her music, art, and self-expression, and how this process allowed her to trust herself more, feel more inspired, and create momentum in her life. She also gives tactical ways in which you can build discipline into your life to help you create that thing you keep pushing down the to-do list.

01:05:28
THE SOLO At Camp Almost 30, K+L led a session on healing the female friendship wound... It's a transformative act of healing + compassion that can change so much in your life, even outside of your friendships. They share what they have found powerful in their own healing, where their friendships were misaligned, and how they got through it. Sometimes, we don’t realize how difficult it is for women to trust other women because we’re programmed at such a young age to reject other women. We have to work hard to heal those wounds and repair the damage done by false beliefs in order to bask in the joy and beauty that is possible from female friendships. We also talk about: Identifying issues in your friendships What the female friendship wound is Finding the common themes in your female friendships Bringing intentionality into your relationships Balancing giving and receiving Speaking your truth Wanting your friends to be successful No talking bad about friends Not abandoning yourself Setting boundaries Looking at your relationship with your mother, sisters, and close female friends Healing in community Resources: Join our new membership!

Ep. 394 - How I Reconnected with My Intuition with Krista Williams
01:02:54

Being connected to your intuition allows you to confidently know you’re on the right path. When you have this feeling like there’s something guiding you along in life and there for you. But this last year has been rough on so many of us. If you’re feeling out of touch with yourself and your intuition, know that you’re not alone! Krista went through a period where she completely disconnected from herself, her voice, and who she is at a soul level. She shares how she found her way back to her intuition, and the steps she took to reconnect.

THE INTERVIEW Dave Asprey is one of the biggest names in biohacking, and he’s no stranger to sharing his unique points of view and telling it how he sees it. The founder and former CEO of Bulletproof Coffee continues to practice what he preaches, while backing his lifestyle up with science, data, and case studies. He’s continuing that journey with his new book, https://fastthisway.com/ ("Fast This Way,") which looks at fasting in a way it’s never been looked at before—debunking all the myths and B.S. that have surrounded it for years.

THE INTERVIEW I’m sure we’re all ready to leave 2020 behind us. Maybe it isn’t about leaving 2020 behind us so much as it is heading into the new year with good intentions, and integrating all of the hard lessons we’ve learned in the past.

Ep. 379 - Alok Vaid Menon: Self-Expression is The Medicine
01:25:25
THE INTERVIEW K+L originally spoke to Alok Vaid Menon about two years ago — or, in 2020 terms, a lifetime ago — and it continues to be a relevant and important conversation for us to share. There are few people who have had such a lasting impact, not just from the show but from life. K+L left this conversation feeling more human, more connected, more aware of how they affect others: exactly what our world desperately needs more of right now. Alok also recently released a book, “Beyond the Gender Binary,” which shows that gender is a malleable and creative form of expression only limited by your creativity. So, to celebrate the book and this beautiful, powerful, kind, and heart-centered soul, we wanted to share the conversation again.   We also talk about: The ins and outs of your passion being your business Growing up (emotionally repressed) in a small Texas town Southern “politeness” Balancing being a strong example for others + being a complex, flawed human Why it hurts when we turn someone into a metaphor and a symbol Visibility does not mean safety for women and trans people Where Alok developed their emotional vocabulary Gender + shame Learning not to fear their own gender nonconformity The psychology of fascism Why Alok is frustrated by the individualism of self-care The people who bully us want to be us Aesthetics as political resistance Violence against gender non-conforming individuals has escalated over the past few years What we can all do, every day, to challenge the current paradigm   Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!   Resources: Get yourself a copy of “Beyond the Gender Binary” Or donate a copy of the book to an LGBTQ youth Learn more | https://www.alokvmenon.com/ (alokvmenon.com) Instagram | @alokvmenon Twitter | @alokvmenon YouTube | youtube.com/channel/UCG_G2mCoGdNUIOPaPrgorHg   Sponsors: PaleoValley | Go to paleovalley.com/almost30 and enter code ALMOST30 at checkout to receive 15% off your first order Kitty Poo Club | Visit kittypooclub.com and enter promo code ALMOST30 to get 20% off when you set up auto-ship FX Chocolate | Go to FXchocolate.com and enter code "ALMOST30" for 20% off Doordash | Download the doordash app and use code ALMOST30 for $5 off your first order of $15 or more Woo More Play | Head over to WOOMorePlay.com and use code ALMOST30 for 20% OFF your order of WOO Vibez today.   Almost 30 is edited by http://crate.media (Crate Media)

Ep. 374- A Solo Trip Will Change Your Life
01:14:51
When Lindsey was single, she started taking solo trips. It’s one of those things she always gets questions about: What do you recommend? How do you not freak out? How do you manage anxiety or loneliness? Being alone is a chance to come back to center and recognize your own energy, and by doing something active and engaging alone, without having to juggle others’ expectations, it can be a great opportunity to tune into your own wants, needs, and desires. She goes into the purpose of solo trips, things that might come up, the feelings around anticipation, managing excitement and anxiety, and maximizing the opportunities found in taking a trip like this. Solo trips are an incredible way to heal your soul.   We also talk about: Why it’s important to be thinking about this now, during this time of year Why Lindsey started taking solo trips Planning your solo trip Spending on what’s important to you Creating a mood board Taking safety precautions Finding a balance of routine and freedom Five things Lindsey loves to do on her trips   Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!   Resources: @best_airbnb Check out the upcoming workshops in our New Paradigm digital series at https://almost30.com/new-paradigm (almost30.com/new-paradigm) Join our Podcast Pro accelerator program at yourpodcastpro.com   Sponsors: Osea Malibu | Use code ALMOST30 to get $10 off $50 or more at http://www.oseamalibu.com/almost30podcast (oseamalibu.com/almost30podcast) BetterHelp | Visit betterhelp.com/almost30 for 15% off your first month.

Notice:  how do you feel when you hear the title “Sex Worker”?  What assumptions do you make?  K + L want to give sex work the conversation it deserves.  Alice Little joins the girls for an intimate, enlightening, and empowering conversation about her career in sex work. She answers literally any question you’d ever want to ask a sex worker and she does not hold back. There’s something about what she does that is incredibly healing and therapeutic. There’s so much shame around expressing yourself sexually and through your body, but this conversation with Alice is educational and dynamic, which we hope will clear up the confusion about what the sex industry is all about.   We also talk about: The stigma around sex work Misconceptions are sex workers The current legality of sex work in the United States The way the internet is changing the field Getting “the girlfriend experience” Where it can be empowering and disempowering Feeling good in your skin Taking care of yourself How people develop fetishes The place for porn stars   Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!   Resources: thealicelittle.com Instagram: @thealicelittleofficial onlyfans.com/thealicelittle Check out the upcoming workshops in our New Paradigm digital series at https://almost30.com/new-paradigm (almost30.com/new-paradigm) Check out our, previous workshops, courses, and new merch collection at https://www.shopalmost30.com/ (shopalmost30.com)   Sponsors: GoMacro Bars | Use code ALMOST30 for 20% off at https://www.gomacro.com/ (gomacro.com) Brooklinen |  Get $20 off AND free shipping when you use code ALMOST30 at brooklinen.com Woo More Play | Use code ALMOST30 for 20% off at www.woomoreplay.com Kitty Poo Club | Visit kittypooclub.com and enter promo code ALMOST30 to get 20% off when you set up auto-ship   Almost 30 is edited by http://crate.media (Crate Media)

THE SOLO No matter how wonderful our mothers are, we all carry trauma from our early childhood related to them. Krista has been on a long healing journey to recover from the abandonment issues, insecurity, codependency, and narcissism that’s followed her from that relationship. And when you’re thinking about starting a family—there’s no way you want your kids treating you the way you treated your mom. Not happening. This is for all the people that felt ashamed when they didn’t have that beautiful, nurturing relationship with their mom. If you’re struggling in life to overcome the baggage created by your parents, take what you can from Krista’s own work of healing, moving on, and reforging a new relationship with her mother.   We also talk about: Doing the work to heal the mother wound The issues formed through Krista’s childhood The coping mechanisms for that trauma Letting go of your past relationship Releasing expectations Showing up in your relationship Leaning into the sister relationship Being conscious of the messages we pass to our daughters Looking at our damage   Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!   Resources: Check out the upcoming workshops in our New Paradigm digital series at https://almost30.com/new-paradigm (almost30.com/new-paradigm) Check out our, previous workshops, courses, and new merch collection at https://www.shopalmost30.com/ (shopalmost30.com)   Sponsors: Olipop | Visit drinkolipop.com and use code ALMOST30 for 20% off the variety 12-pack Dropps | Save 25% off your first purchase using promo code “almost30” at dropps.com BetterHelp | Visit betterhelp.com/almost30 for 15% off your first month.

Ep. 365 - Human Design + Healing Your Relationship with Money with Jas the Moon Mother
01:49:05
THE INTERVIEW Jas the Moon Mother recently entered our orbit and has already been a grounding force in elevating our understanding of our purpose.  Jas is a human design guide and energy healer who is passionate about awakening your soul’s purpose and self-sovereignty. She’s always been years ahead of the crowd, but because of that she never really felt like part of the crowd. When she experienced her spiritual awakening, she realized how connected all life on earth is and how much we impact each other, which led to the realization that we are all part of the same source—we are all God. In this enlightening conversation, the girls talk about human design, Jas’ calling, spirituality in general, God, Christ consciousness, transformation, and our broken views about money.    We also talk about: Being ahead of your time Healing your relationship with money How what we do affects people’s lives Jas’ spiritual awakening Zero-point manifestation Applying human design in your life Reprogramming your life for the life you want The connection between human design and purpose   Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!   Resources: moondustourmother.com Instagram: @themoon.mother Divinely Human Podcast New Paradigm Workshop 10/14: Human Design for Your Money Alignment and Purpose with Jas The Moon Mother Check out the upcoming workshops in our New Paradigm digital series at https://almost30.com/new-paradigm (almost30.com/new-paradigm)   Sponsors: Laird Superfoods Use code ALMOST30 at lairdsuperfood.com to score 15% off!

Ep. 364 - Breathwork: The Mind Release + Soul Remembering with Samantha Skelly
01:33:14
THE INTERVIEW One time Samantha Skelly showed up for her meditation class late, so she was offered a breathwork class instead. She was skeptical, but tried it out anyway. She thought it looked like an orgy, the energy healer leading the session told her that her brain was broken, and she bawled her eyes out… and she LOVED it. So she asked herself: how does the whole world not know we have the ability to feel this? Samantha and Lindsey dive into the life-changing experience of breathwork and how we can ALL tap into the healing available inside each and every one of us to release our minds and learn to feel again.  Lindsey found breathwork two years ago and was completely changed for the better by this practice.  In this episode, the girls share personal experiences and the soul shifting effects of this powerful healing modality.   We also talk about: Finding breathwork How emotions get caught in the body The ways breathwork heals us (or allows us to heal ourselves) Integrating breathwork into your everyday life Getting started with breathwork Vocal releasing during breathwork   Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!   Resources: samanthaskelly.com pausebreathwork.com hungryforhappiness.com/book @samanthaskelly @pausebreathwork @hungryforhappiness “Meet Your Soul” Elisa Romeo Almost 30 Podcast Accelerator Check out our new merch collection at shopalmost30.com Check out the upcoming workshops in our New Paradigm digital series at https://almost30.com/new-paradigm (almost30.com/new-paradigm)   Sponsors: Book of the Month | Get your first book for $9.99 with code ALMOST30 at www.bookofthemonth.com Osea Malibu | Use code ALMOST30 to get $10 off $50 or more at http://www.oseamalibu.com/almost30podcast (oseamalibu.com/almost30podcast) GoMacro Bars | Use code ALMOST30 for 20% off at https://www.gomacro.com/ (gomacro.com) Olipop | Use Code ALMOST30 for 20% the top-selling Variety 12-Pack at drinkolipop.com/almost30 Gabby Bernstein Live Training: https://xh111.isrefer.com/go/purpose/almost30podcast   Almost 30 is edited by http://crate.media (Crate Media)

Ep. 363 - Gabby Bernstein: You Are The Guru
01:10:08
THE INTERVIEW Gabby Bernstein certainly needs no introduction. She has this ability to be so present in her own life and share what’s happening in real-time while translating that into her new message and teaching, all with a no-BS attitude that you just have to love, and we are here for it. No matter what is going on around her or in the world, she’s found a way to anchor into her own truth and intuition, and she’s sharing how we all can do the same. As we see gurus fall from the pedestals we’ve put them on, it falls upon us to figure out what messages work and what messages don’t for ourselves. We dive into her new audiobook, “You Are The Guru,” how her relationship with eating has evolved, and the difference between surrendering and finding creative solutions. She also shares how compassion creates connection and why that is so important to foster during this time.   We also talk about: How she’s feeling after postpartum depression The choices we face during times of crisis How to work through your excuses + find creative opportunities Putting on the lens of love everyday Why we can’t rely on gurus How to separate yourself from your work and allow your message to live How being a parent changes your intuition Why “Judgement Detox” is so timely right now Advice for starting a consciousness business and writing a book   Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!   Resources from Gabby: Listen: "You Are the Guru" Read: "Judgement Detox" Gabby's Bestseller Masterclass Sign up for Gabby’s free live webinar “YOUR 5-STEP GUIDE to UNLOCK PURPOSE & ABUNDANCE” gabbybernstein.com Instagram: @gabbybernstein   Resources from Almost 30: Almost 30 Podcast Accelerator Check out our new merch collection at shopalmost30.com Check out the upcoming workshops in our New Paradigm digital series at https://almost30.com/new-paradigm (almost30.com/new-paradigm) Ep. 257 - Gabrielle Bernstein on Being a ‘Super Attractor’ + Overcoming Postpartum Depression   Upcoming Events: September 30th: New Paradigm Workshop - Conscious Intimacy: A Body & Sex Convo with Chinae Alexander & Dr. Holly October 1st: Free Webinar - Your 5-Step Guide to Unlock Purpose & Abundance with Gabby Bernstein   Sponsors: ALOHA | Visit https://aloha.com/ (aloha.com) and use code ALMOST30 for 25% off your first order BiOptimizers | Use code “almost30” for 10% off at https://bioptimizers.com/ (bioptimizers.com) Public Goods | Get $15 off your first order by visiting publicgoods.com/almost30 SAKARA | Go to sakara.com/almostsakara and use code ALMOSTSAKARA for 20% off your first order   Almost 30 is edited by http://crate.media (Crate Media)

01:04:39
THE SOLO K + L are joined by Sarah Merril, the comedic mastermind behind BigKidProblems, to have some much-needed girl time. She knows that nobody really has it together and unapologetically points it out at any occasion — to hilarious results. We chat about why everyone’s leaving Los Angeles, how it feels moving to a new city for the first time (and how much easier it is the second time), jiving with your partner during quarantine, and why it’s so damn expensive just living in this world.

Ep. 359 - The Power of Airing Ugly Truths with Chinae Alexander
01:32:15
THE INTERVIEW Chinae Alexander is the kind of person you just want to be friends with. She’s vulnerable about the process of improving herself and figuring shit out, but she owns who she is with  confidence. By showing the imperfect side of herself, it allows the people who follow her to see that they, too, can do the work AND be confident. Now, that’s an inspiring thing we don’t often see in the sometimes too-perfect-to-be-real world of Instagram influencers. She believes in showing up as the taste menu of yourself instead of the full ten-course meal — giving people enough of the real you to satisfy them and keep them full. In this thoughtful conversation, she dives into showing up as yourself online, finding a therapist who doesn’t freak you out, processing your emotions out loud, and handling anxiety in whatever way you can.   We also talk about: Stepping in as a leader Navigating the last few months Processing emotions in public Fully existing as yourself online Dealing with anxiety How coronavirus has given us more gratitude   Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!   Resources: chinaealexander.com Instagram: @chinaealexander Listen: chinaealexander.com/podcast We are announcing the lineup for our New Paradigm digital series soon!

Ep. 357 - Jay Shetty on Spirituality, Leadership + Finding Your Purpose
01:27:31
THE INTERVIEW Welcome to a highlight of our podcasting career: a conversation with Jay Shetty. Jay started this interview by saying “Let’s have a conversation I’ve never had before.”  And so we did. If you don’t already know and love Jay, he’s known for his viral social media videos where he teaches the principles he learned during his time as a monk. He’s now the host of the FIRE podcast, On Purpose, and author of the new book https://thinklikeamonkbook.com/ (“Think Like A Monk,”) and let us just say - he is everything you feel from him online and more. 😍 We don’t all have to be monks to adopt the same principles that allow them to lead lives of service and purpose. Jay shares the wisdom he gained from that time in his life and how we can bring the pillars of that lifestyle into our own lives for peace, groundedness, and connection. We dive into leadership, ego, creativity, and flow, as well as how you can stay inspired on the daily. We also go deep into his spirituality and connection to source, and it’s beautiful to hear his relationship with the universe in an easy-to-access way.   We also talk about: Learning marketing and business in order to let your art see the world Being in service of others Living as a monk Becoming more adaptable Blocking creativity through structure Jay’s relationship with Source Finding your purpose The real ego VS the false ego Jay’s relationship with his wife   Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!   Resources: jayshetty.me Read: “Think Like A Monk” Listen: jayshetty.me/podcast We are announcing the lineup for our New Paradigm digital series soon!

01:17:08
THE INTERVIEW Camila Coelho is an influencer, entrepreneur, and overall angel of a human! In today’s episode, she shares a side of her that you don’t see very often. When she moved to the U.S. from Brazil, she worked at a makeup counter. Now she runs her own clothing line, Camila Coelho Collection, and cosmetic brand, Elaluz. Talk about living the American Dream! But as she vulnerably shares with us, her life isn’t all Instagram inspo 24/7. Camila was diagnosed with epilepsy as a teen and just recently began to open up and talk about how it impacts her life. Camila also gets real + emotional about the difficulties of navigating a pregnancy while being epileptic. We already loved following her, but now are even more impressed by the woman, business leader, and style icon she is!

Ep. 355 - Gabby Reece Says Give Yourself a Break
01:23:11
THE INTERVIEW Gabby Reece is iconic. She’s an athlete, a leader, an author, a wife, a mother, and an entrepreneur, and yet still so down-to-earth it’s kinda hard to believe. She popularized the idea of “going first” when interacting with other people: smile first, wave first, talk first, and break the tension without allowing awkwardness to grow between you. It’s a welcoming invitation to be present. She has such a liberating perspective on purpose, parenting, embracing the beauty and lessons in different phases of your life, and just being a good person on this planet. This is such an incredibly dynamic conversation from a true LEGEND that will hopefully encourage you to do things in your own way!    We also talk about: The power of going first + human connection Horizontal vs Vertical relationships Learning to know yourself outside of the “noise” Embracing your masculinity as a female Gabby’s spiritual journey Raising girls in this current environment and social media society Prioritizing movement throughout life Her self-care routine Productive confrontation in relationships Articulating from love vs. reaction   Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!   Resources: gabriellereece.com Podcast: gabriellereece.com/category/the-gabby-reece-show Instagram: @gabbyreece Check out our new merch collection at shopalmost30.com Laird Superfood Creamer   Sponsors: Winged CBD | Use code ALMOST30 for 20% off your order at wingedcbd.com/almost30.

As incredible and serious and powerful as this man is, he’s so in touch with his inner child.. In today’s episode, he talks about Atlantis, predictions for 2020, what’s going on in the world right now, his relationship and how releasing your inner child can be part of our collective healing.

THE INTERVIEW Known as @thebirdspapaya on Instagram, Sarah Nicole Landry unpacks what it means to be out there in the world with confidence and love. Being super honest, open, and vulnerable with yourself is hard enough. Embodying that around other people is a whole different level of uncomfortable… but it’s such a transformative way to live your life!  It’s hard to slow down and think of the effect that having eyes on our social media all the time has had on our emotional and mental wellbeing—the spiral of comparison or self-doubt—but she puts it into such a clear perspective. She is still, like all of us, in process, and that’s part of what’s so beautiful about her and her story.   We also talk about: Being honest about your growth and transformation instead of ashamed of your past The shame of wrapping your value up in external circumstances Hitting rock bottom and healing Having your own opinions instead of being a sponge for everyone elses Learning to heal in relationships and love The difficulties of vulnerability   Find more to love at http://almost30.com/ (almost30.com)!   Resources: thebirdspapaya.com Instagram: @thebirdspapaya   Sponsors: WOO More Play | Use code ALMOST30 for 30% off Love Oil, Freshies and Quickies or visit woomoreplay.com/discount/ALMOST30 BiOptimizers | Use code “almost30” for 10% off at https://bioptimizers.com/ (bioptimizers.com) Function of Beauty | Visit functionofbeauty.com/almost30 to save 20% off your first order GoMacro Bars | Use code ALMOST30 for 20% off at gomacro.com Casetify | https://www.casetify.com/almost30 for 20% off your purchase   Almost 30 is edited by http://crate.media (Crate Media)

Ep. 345 -Lo Bosworth on Mental Health + Being Your Own Advocate
58:13
THE INTERVIEW Lo Bosworth is the BEST. She walks the talk when it comes to supporting women. Many of you probably know her from seeing her grow up on The Hills and Laguna Beach — and she shares how difficult it is to be in the spotlight at such a young age.  Post TV stardom, Lo has found her passion — women's health and wellness.

Ep. 336 - The Spiritual Text that Changed My Life - with Aaron Abke
01:31:50
THE INTERVIEW “The Law of One” is the most profound text Krista has ever read, and after reading it, she knew she HAD to share it with #almost30nation. It’s one of those texts where, after you read it, you know you will never be the same. It’s a historical text that was translated from a consciousness of the sixth dimension, known as Ra, through a woman. If you’re just starting to explore your spirituality in earnest, the book may be diving into the deep end — but if you are interested in aliens, history, sacred geometry, or metaphysics, “The Law of One” is a must read. Aaron Abke is a YouTuber + a conscious influencer. He’s done several videos where he breaks down the Law of One, and if you don’t feel that you can read the text, that’s an excellent place to start. He is the perfect person to dive DEEP into all things consciousness, dimensions, aliens, pyramids — everything K + L LOVE to talk about!   We also talk about: The trajectory of Aaron’s spiritual awakening What the Law of One is The relationship between Venus and aliens The differences between dimensions and densities Why people want to skip the fourth dimension Wrestling between the two polarities of service to others or service to self The role of free will How they were able to channel Ra The elements of each density The galactic federation The healing parts of the Law of One Tarot in the Law of One   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: aaronabke.com instagram.com/aaronabke youtube.com/aaronabke lawofone.info   Upcoming Events: August 11th-14th: Our Almost 30 Malibu Retreat is back on!

We dive into topics of diversity, equity, inclusion, anti-racism, and what all the differences are between them.

THE SOLO Everyone has had different experiences in quarantine and isolation — those who are enjoying it and others who are struggling & riddled with anxiety. As we see the world opening up again, we find ourselves thinking, “How can we maintain a sense of peace, groundedness, and a commitment to our evolution and growth?” That’s always been the point of this show, and this collective pause has really put a spotlight on the ways in which we must protect our energy and reflect on what’s truly important. We’ve also seen how focusing on personal growth can help us live a more aligned life and how making ourselves a priority positively affects other areas of our lives. K + L discuss how to reintegrate as the world finds its new normal and how to hold onto the lessons we learned during our time in quarantine.   We also talk about: Remembering what you love about being home  Being intentional about what you miss + why Adding things back into our schedule with intention Rocking your archetypes Remembering all that you’ve learned   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: Check out our latest workbooks and downloadables: shopalmost30.com Check out our New Paradigm workshops at almost30podcast.com/new-paradigm.   Sponsors: YouVeda | Use code ALMOST30 for 35% at http://youveda.com (youveda.com).

01:12:06
THE INTERVIEW K + L are here, as always, to have real, honest conversations — ones that challenge us, make us uncomfortable, and help us grow. This conversation with Thaís Sky on white privilege and white fragility from 2018 is one of those.  These are important parts of who many of us are and what we experience that we need to look at in order to be better and do better. Our hope is that you are inspired to dismantle your attachment and support of systems that, for centuries, have contributed to blatant racism and inequality.  Enough is enough.  We ask that in listening, you have an open mind, are ready to learn, and are willing to explore how you can be a part of the change.  .   We also talk about: Opportunities for growth Being addicted to our shitty thoughts + shitty people Trying not to compartmentalize our own spirituality Feeling unworthy of your own self-care: we can't show up for others if we’re not showing up for ourselves. The governmental + societal systems that keep certain groups of people oppressed How white women contribute to + benefit from racism How we can REALLY educate ourselves about systematic oppression + privilege When you have privilege, what is your place in the conversation?

Ep. 330 - Triggers: How to identify + work through them with Aaron Rose
01:08:53
THE INTERVIEW Aaron Rose is the coach that K + L have been working with to help them uncover unconscious biases, be more intentional, and nurture inclusivity. There can be so much information, news, and things we’re seeing daily that can be very triggering right now. We hear that word a lot, trigger, and it’s important for us to unpack what that really means and how we can work against that. It’s okay to be triggered, but there’s something underneath that trigger that needs to be examined. How do we fix these deep-rooted issues that go so far back? Aaron teaches us his method of inner work for dealing with triggers.   We also talk about: A nuanced understanding of manifestation Finding the root cause of your feelings and allowing yourself to feel them Not policing ourselves internally What triggers are and how to deal with them How we confirm our reality Steps to deal with a trigger   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: aaronxrose.com Instagram: @aaronxrose   Sponsors: CURED Nutrition | ALMOST30 for $10 off $50 or more at curednutrition.com  Jacuzzi Infrared Saunas | Visit infraredsauna.com and mention Almost 30 to get $400-600 your purchase GoMacro Bars | Use code ALMOST30 for 20% off at gomacro.com Article | www.article.com/ALMOST30 for $50 off your first purchase of $100 or more   Almost 30 is edited by http://crate.media (Crate Media)

Ep. 329 - “Revolution Now” - In Conversation with Rachel Cargle (re-release)
01:25:35
THE INTERVIEW This week we’re bringing back an interview we had with Rachel Cargle in December of 2018 because it is incredibly relevant to things that are happening in our world today. She has done an amazing job building a platform and resources for people, she raises money for marginalized communities, and she hosts The Great Unlearn on Patreon. We’ve talked about white fragility, white supremacy, allyship, and the issue of race, and these are all things that need to be brought back to the forefront. Rachel is doing so much to show us how to engage with white supremacy, how we as white people play a huge role in the race conversations going on, and how we can be better to support anti-racism. We need to work together against the system that has created this huge rift in society. We have so much power, we need to use that power for good.   We also talk about: Deciding to start teaching what she was learning  Her college experience  Where to start in order to make a difference Social media posting being taken down  Rachel answers questions from Almost 30 Nation Example of modern-day colonization    What Rachel is excited about   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: Learn more: https://www.rachelcargle.com/ (rachelcargle.com)  Instagram: @rachel.cargle The Great Unlearn: patreon.com/thegreatunlearn Read: Rachel’s Harper’s Bazaar articles; National Seed Project White Privilege article 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge: eddiemoorejr.com/21daychallenge   Sponsors: Business Bundle | $18,000 worth of courses, programs, and memberships for just $100.

Ep. 326 - 6 Tips for Building Confidence
49:48
THE SOLO Confidence is so key. Yes, we’ve all heard it before, but some things are cliché for a reason. K + L each offer three tried-and-true tips for being more confident, all born from their personal experiences. But remember — confidence is always going to be something personal to you. It doesn’t have to look the same as someone else, and it doesn’t even have to look like sunshine and rainbows. Confidence is something you work on getting closer to, and you never quite get there fully, but it’s so worth working towards all the same.   We also talk about: Working towards confidence Facing hard things Finding quiet to hear our own voices Channeled writing Appreciating your body Engaging in self-care Looking back on your progress   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: Check out the lineup for upcoming workshops in our New Paradigm Digital Series: almost30podcast.com/new-paradigm Check out our latest workbooks and downloadables: shopalmost30.com   Sponsors: Powerbabe Mastermind | Powerbabe Mastermind applications are open now and close May 25th!

01:13:14
THE SOLO Everyone loves a quitter! No, really. When you’re working at a job you hate, it is so energizing to quit at the right time and in the right way.

Ep. 322 - Community Call #1: Finding Confidence in Community
42:34
THE SOLO K + L have been wanting to connect with the community two-on-one for a while and are so excited to finally share the first of many conversations in their new series, “Community Call”! We’ve been wanting to hear from YOU - Almost 30 nation - and how you’ve been impacted by the show, taken the messages shared by guests or other members of the community, and have made serious, positive changes in your life. Joining them this week is Emily Feikls, who first discovered the podcast when she was 18 and struggling with finding like-minded friends in her rural town. At the time, Emily felt like an outsider, like she didn’t belong to any community — but she felt an instant connection to #ALMOST30NATION as soon as she found it. She then took small steps to take control of her life and live in her truth - including attending last year’s retreat and starting her very own podcast and community. Emily is an inspiration, modeling for all of us how you can alchemize pain + grief into a beautiful life that you love.   We also talk about: How an 18-year old gets into Almost 30 Feeling like an outsider in your geographical community Finding your voice Leaving your comfort zone Feeling support within an online community   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Love: Acuity is an incredible way to streamline your schedule.

She took a microscope to happiness, breaking down the why and how so that she could create science-based, tactical strategies for staying happy. Dr. Santos makes it so easy to understand the value of what people usually see as “fluff.” We talk about how to honor those who are struggling (while still maintaining our own sovereignty and happiness), the importance of a wealth of time versus money, and how meditation is  a happiness cheat code.   We also talk about: Adopting new social norms Why we crave social connection The hard part of happiness The causal effects of happiness The correlation between income and happiness level The importance of attitude, mindset, and behavior Time over money What we put in our body and how that affects our happiness Meditation as a happiness panacea   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: Instagram: instagram.com/santoslaurie Twitter: twitter.com/lauriesantos The Happiness Lab Podcast: happinesslab.fm Enroll for FREE in Dr. Santos’ course: The Science of Well-Being Check out the lineup for upcoming workshops in our New Paradigm Digital Series: almost30podcast.com/new-paradigm Looking for some Inner Peace in this uncertain time?

Ep. 320 - 3 Practices to Build Self-Trust
55:49
THE SOLO Trust is so, so important in any healthy relationship — that’s obvious, right? It shouldn’t be any different when it comes to ourselves. Trusting yourself and the way you live your life is transformational. We all reach a moment where it’s time to break up with this expectation — whether from our parents or someone else — of how our life was supposed to go and to trust ourselves to live life the way we want. Lindsey shares her experience making the transition from not trusting herself to a more consistent and confident level of trust and the three practices she follows to help build that self trust every day.   We also talk about: The experiences that damaged Lindsey’s self trust What trusting yourself (or not) looks like The ways you can strengthen your trust What happens when you trust yourself   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: This week we’re teaming up with millennial money expert Nicole Lapin to host a workshop called “Money Management in Times of Crisis.” Join us and build wealth health! https://www.universe.com/managingmoneywithnicolelapin Check out the lineup for upcoming workshops in our New Paradigm Digital Series: http://almost30podcast.com/new-paradigm Looking for some Inner Peace in this uncertain time?

THE INTERVIEW Ramit Sethi’s book, https://www.iwillteachyoutoberich.com/book/ (I Will Teach You To Be Rich), is an absolute game-changer in the finance world. He is charismatic, grounded, and relatable — not to mention one of the most progressive voices in the financial literacy and wellness space. He does not sugar coat things, and when it comes to finances and getting really good at managing them, you have to be real about it. He infamously pushes back against the tired advice of “cutting out lattes” in order to save money. Instead, Ramit focuses on indulging in the things you actually care about and noticing when you spend money on things you don’t really care about.   We also talk about: How to get over making excuses when it comes to finances The connection between human behavior and finance Getting your finances together in your 20’s Creating money rules around “yes” instead of “no” Stop worrying about things you shouldn’t How your spending changes as you grow Saving can make you feel free Making real money through investing Writing a prenup Why buying a house isn’t always better than renting   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: Learn more: iwillteachyoutoberich.com Earnable: iwillteachyoutoberich.com/earn Read I Will Teach You To Be Rich Instagram: @ramit Twitter: @ramit We are so excited for our New Paradigm Digital Series!

THE SOLO Instagram loves to kindly remind us of photos we’ve taken in the past, which can be great! But it can also invite us to criticize and compare ourselves. When this happened to Krista, what she noticed so clearly was the ways in which her body has changed over the past few years — namely, weight gain. A few months ago, Krista was in New York City reflecting on the habits and mentalities around her body and how she has shifted away from the behaviors that kept her at the lowest weight she’s ever been. She has been learning how to live with her new body and wanted to share how she deals with body image issues, how her relationship with her body has changed over time, and some tips and resources regarding health and diet.   We also talk about: How being okay with your body is an act of defiance Mindset is the problem, not body The energy we waste worrying about our bodies Motivating yourself to do what you know is healthy Answering your questions about body acceptance Not letting the patriarchy win   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: We are so excited for our New Paradigm Digital Series!

She shares what was written in the stars when the virus came and things started to shift, when it looks like we’re going to get out of it, what every sign needs to be doing during this time, what transitions in astrology we need to be aware of over the coming year, and what the new normal will look like on the other side of this.

CATCH UP WITH K + L Even though the state of the world is uneasy right now, people are supporting people in such a beautiful way — and K+L want to celebrate that!

When she realized that changing her diet improved her mood, her eczema, her weight, and her happiness, she had to share that life-changing info with others.

THE INTERVIEW We are so glad to have author, filmmaker, health and science journalist Max Lugavere back on the show! Max’s new book, The Genius Life, is all about providing actionable research that anyone can use to start feeling stronger, happier, and healthier immediately.

Ep. 306 - Lindsey on Harnessing the Power of Overwhelm
52:12
THE SOLO Raise your hand if you’ve ever been overwhelmed. 🙌 At some point or another it’s a feeling we’ve all had to uncomfortably confront — you’re not alone. In today’s solo episode with Lindsey, she shares how she has dealt with the feeling of overwhelm head on. Although it is tempting to avoid, Lindsey has learned to embrace the feeling because it is one of the most powerful opportunities for growth that the Universe gives us. When we’re open to understanding how and why it happens, we can harness that energy and turn it into something incredible. Lindsey has been feeling this ebb and flow of overwhelm over the past two years, and with that consistency, she had to ask: What is the purpose of this overwhelm? She shares the answers that came through during a channeled writing session with her higher self, why she avoided overwhelm for so long, and 3 tips for reframing the idea of being overwhelmed.   We also talk about: Where we learn that overwhelm is bad How overwhelm is a challenge to our ego + why that’s a gift Doing the inner work necessary to understand why you are avoiding overwhelm Increasing your tolerance for overwhelm Using breathwork to center yourself Harnessing your daydreams   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Love: Lindsey does online breathwork with her friend Bree Melanson.

THE INTERVIEW Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt joins us today for a conversation on forgiveness. Her new book, https://amzn.to/2r3n5sY (The Gift of Forgiveness), gives readers an opportunity to deeply understand the act of forgiving and how doing so can positively affect everyone involved.

Katherine’s book speaks to those layers and how we can work out our “forgiveness muscle” daily. Newly married, Katherine gushes about her relationship with Chris Pratt and shares how forgiveness will always play a huge role in their relationship. We are all going to be faced with opportunities to forgive, and Katherine’s hope is that, by reading the inspiring stories of those who were able to forgive in situations you wouldn’t imagine, you will be able to move forward in practicing forgiveness in your life.   We also talk about: Her book, I Just Graduated… Now What? and why she felt inspired to speak to this formative time How Katherine got over her fear of sharing details about her life How forgiveness can be a gift you give yourself How to ask for help + advice when you need it The process of finding stories for her book The physicality of holding on to anger Times when you don’t have to forgive Forgiveness within relationships   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: Learn more: katherineschwarzenegger.com Book: The Gift of Forgiveness Facebook: facebook.com/KatherineSchwarzeneggerOnline Instagram: @katherineschwarzenegger Twitter: @KSchwarzenegger   Upcoming Events: May 5th - 8th: Almost 30 Retreat at Calamigos Ranch Malibu   Sponsors: Ancient Nutrition | Visit ancientnutrition.com and use code ALMOST30 for 20% off a one-time order.

Ep. 276 - Digital Minimalism +The Importance of Deep Work with Cal Newport
01:46:52
CATCH UP WITH K + L Is it a negative sign to feel pain after the chiropractor? Or could it be locked up emotions that need to be released? Krista is looking for your feedback! K + L also share a personal anecdote from an Almost 30 listener. This sparks a conversation around the power of micro impacts and how messages come to us at the right time.   THE INTERVIEW Buckle up for today’s episode with Georgetown University professor and New York Times bestselling author, Cal Newport! Cal has written six books, including Digital Minimalism, Deep Work, and So Good They Can’t Ignore You. Today, we are scratching the surface of these incredibly powerful and insightful reads. Are you searching for an answer as to why we compulsively look at our phones? Cal reveals the role Facebook and social approval indicators have played in our increased usage. We talk about how phones keep us from feeling boredom and loneliness, and why feeling boredom is actually beneficial. When it comes to the concept of ‘deep work,’ Cal explains why it is a valuable yet rare skill, and how practicing it will allow you to produce higher quality work at a faster rate. He explains factors that affect our ability to do deep work, and we discuss how being unavailable due to an appointment is more socially acceptable than taking deep work time. We then ask Cal why “follow your passion” is actually bad advice, and he shares how passion is something you cultivate over time, which leads to fulfillment and success in your career. You’ll learn daily hacks for minimizing the time on your phone, and a strategy for families that want to use phones as a tool versus a constant companion. Cal emphasizes being intentional about what you use, why you use it, and how you use it. Let’s go!   We also talk about: Why ‘focusing’ takes practice How deep work reduces the phenomenon “attention residue” The effect of A.I. on deep work How servicing communications affect our anxiety levels The positives and negatives of “Screen Time” The way social media helps sell books Facebook compared to the original idea for the internet   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Love: Shoutout to our mobility guru, Dr. Jen Esquer!

05:28
CATCH UP WITH K + L Today K + L begin by spotlighting Joe Rogan’s interview with Edward Snowden. They discuss the increase in censorship and shift in power after 9/11, then pivot to chatting about Joe’s ability to be a bada$$ + rad dad at the same time. Get ready for some lol’s as K recounts her story involving a police case, ridiculous clothes for Coachella, and a hit and run! Then L shares her friend’s experience with a medical procedure gone wrong—highlighting the importance of second opinions, asking questions, and being your own advocate in a doctors office.    THE INTERVIEW Today we are vibin’ so high with this powerful and impactful episode. It resonates so deeply with us; we can’t wait to share it with you. Our guest, Aaron Rose, is a conscious culture and life design coach, and motivational speaker. We recently started working with him to expand our knowledge on being conscious leaders. Today Aaron joins us to illustrate his journey of growth, and how he began living his truth after growing up in a religious household that limited self-expression. For example, Aaron talks about the family newspaper he started to advocate for himself due to the discord he felt toward their religion’s lack of acceptance. He shares his coming out process, the painful conversations of trying to explain himself to his family, and how his relationship has evolved with them over the years. We then ask what it means to be ‘real’ on Instagram, and love Aaron’s answer about searching for our relatable brilliance versus flaws. We also talk about being triggered—understanding when you’re being triggered, what to do, and the importance of allowing your emotions to flow through you. Aaron shares how dropping into your heart and cleaning up energetic patterns creates change. To wrap up, he shares his favorite books, and we spend some time nerding out on The Lord of the Rings!   We also talk about: How being fully present with others can create discomfort Aaron’s early experiences of discrimination How in conflict we still yearn for connection His involvement in social justice projects in high school and later How we are addicted to the lows Aaron’s relationship with God & faith How Aaron’s work has impacted individuals, teams, work cultures   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Love: Listen to Joe Rogan’s interview with Edward Snowden here.   Resources: Learn more: aaronxrose.com Instagram: @aaronxrose Recommended Books: A Course in Miracles ; A Return to Love ; The Holographic Universe ; Octavia Butler   Upcoming Events: November 26th: Melbourne with Rosie Acosta November 28th: Sydney with Jessica Sepel December 7th: Los Angeles with K&L December 12th: Miami with Nikki Novo   Sponsors: Buffy | Go to www.buffy.co use code ALMOST30 for $20 off Article | www.article.com/ALMOST30 for $50 off a purchase of $100 or more Foria | Visit foriawellness.com and use code ALMOST30 for 20% off Daily Harvest | Use code ALMOST30 for 3 FREE Cups in your first box at www.daily-harvest.com Teachable | Visit http://teachable.com/almost30 (teachable.com/almost30) to get 1 month of Teachable Pro Plan FREE!

01:34:00
Today K + L are kicking it off with dreams and ways to cleanse your home from unwanted energy! Have you ever experienced a psychic dream? Lindsey shares a friend’s psychic dream that involved L and a new romance, then Krista illustrates her recent natural disaster dreams and the meaning behind them. Krista breaks down the exact way she’s been cleansing her apartment - from playing sounds that break up stuck energy, burning palo santo, and smudge sprays by Tisha Morris, you’ll learn some fun new ways to cleanse your home’s energy!   THE INTERVIEW Today we are joined by the founder and CEO of Tress for Us and host of Girl We Got This podcast, Laticia Rolle! We can’t express enough admiration for Laticia. She is the definition of a true friend with her unwavering support and love. Growing up in a large family and as an athlete for most of her life, Laticia’s life has always revolved around creating sisterhood and meaningful relationships—which is a central part of today’s conversation. Laticia vulnerably shares her experience with her parent’s divorce, toxic relationships, and cheating. We talk about the lows that come from heartbreak, the comparison game, and the incessant checking of the other girl’s Instagram. We explore the reasons women don’t leave cheaters, and Laticia explains why she finally ended her toxic relationship. She expresses the importance of asking for help, especially when you start over. We ask how Laticia began fostering her authentic self, particularly after being surrounded by high-profile individuals and extreme wealth, which influenced who she ‘had’ to be. A huge takeaway from our conversation is how we need to stop comparing ourselves to other women, and begin owning the beauty and uniqueness that is YOU.   We also talk about: Why Laticia loves modeling Defining loyalty after toxic relationships Gas-lighting Women’s intuition Laticia’s inner dialogue while being cheated on Fighting for yourself and choosing yourself The role guilt plays in women’s lives Having a girl squad when you’re a kid What Laticia is proud of right now Being patient and present to your life   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Love: Sending a heartfelt thank you to our friend from the Onsite Creatives’ Retreat, Thad Cockrell, for sharing the beautiful poem and text to Krista.

Ep. 266 - Cathy Heller on The Power of Enthusiasm, Alone Time + Radical Empathy
02:06:22
CATCH UP WITH K + L   Today K & L are sharing thoughts, reflecting on events, and reviewing tips for optimal sleep! The girls begin with a conversation around the “campsite policy”, one Lindsey found in Some Thoughts About Relationships.  The policy is one Dan Savage coined.  Who wants Dan back on the show to discuss!? His belief is that in relationships, you should not leave someone worse off than when you first met them.  FOOD FOR THOUGHT! The ladies then discuss their event with HUM Nutrition and share sleep tips from The Sleep Doctor, Michael Breus. And lastly, K & L fondly reflect on their last show in NYC with Stewart Pearce at The Assemblage.   THE INTERVIEW   Today we had the pleasure of interviewing the host of the popular podcast,  Don’t Keep Your Day Job and coach for creative entrepreneurs, Cathy Heller! Her upcoming book, Don’t Keep Your Day Job, is all about living life on your terms and pursuing the things that may be scary, but are calling out to you.   Our conversation explores emotions, motivation, creativity, entrepreneurship and turning inward. Cathy speaks on how the resistance of feeling is actually what causes the greatest amount of pain. She explains how state of mind trumps everything—from sleep to food—when it comes to motivation and productivity, and shares her knowledge on how to find momentum and enthusiasm. When it comes to pursuing your passion, Cathy gives tips for where to start, like determining your target audience. We talk about the importance of spending time alone and allowing yourself to be creative. Lastly, we ask Cathy what she’s proud of and what she’s working on, and she opens up about her experience with anxiety and relationship OCD.   We also talk about: How humans fear and hide from their feelings The isolating feeling of being an entrepreneur Cultivating a community & making people feel seen Responding to the feedback of your community Not being afraid to share your story The four things people crave that equal a sense of purpose What do we ultimately seek in life? What realistic quitting and transition looks like Knowing what creative ideas to pursue   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Love Thank you to HUM Nutrition for an awesome event!

Jedidiah then begins sharing his story, and paints a picture of his journey in writing his book. From his experience with imposter syndrome to meeting one of his favorites, Cheryl Strayed, and how she came to write a blurb for his book—he has us laughing the whole time. Jedidiah talks about his relationship with his parents after coming out, and shares how he’s never felt shame around his sexuality, even after growing up in an Evangelical Christian household. He also shares how he’s cultivated deep friendships, and how he fosters those relationships and builds community. We have been long awaiting this conversation, and can’t wait to share it with you!   We also talk about: Societies view of the body as carnal and animalistic A mixing board as a metaphor for human life Jedidiah’s deep dive into Christianity The repression of sexuality impacting other aspects of life The lack respectful disagreement in our society Gravity points for finding authentic friendships Jedidiah’s creative process   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Love: Follow Heather McMahan: @heatherkmcmahan and find her on tour HERE!

01:45:18
Today’s conversation highlights how the heartbreaking “no’s” we receive in life can take us in a better and more meaningful direction.

After a twenty year career as the Executive Producer of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Sheri is now the author of The Beautiful No, co-host of The Sheri + Nancy Show, and co-founder of http://thepillarlife.com/ (thepillarlife.com).   Our conversation begins with an emotional recounting of when Sheri’s brother passed away suddenly from a heart attack nine years ago. For years, she avoided processing her grief by immersing herself in work and caring for family. She shares the ways she was able to move through her grief by deepening her spirituality and making self-care a top priority every single day.   Sheri’s humor and honesty as she reflects on every single job she’s had, how each one has made her who she is today as an entrepreneur, and how the No’s ultimately gave her everything she needed to succeed, one lesson at a time. From managing a convenience store and a toy store, to working as a secretary. Sheri has started over and felt lost countless times, but kept searching for something to fill her with meaning. At age 35, she landed an entry level job at The Oprah Winfrey Show, and finally found what she was searching for—purpose.   We also talk about: Using gratitude for your growth Importance of dreaming and creating Uplifting others, seeing their potential and verbalizing it Being choosy about who you share your space with Cherishing our bodies in a deliberate way Sheri’s decision to have a plant-based diet   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: Learn more: http://thepillarlife.com/ (thepillarlife.com) Instagram: @sherisalata Listen: The Sheri + Nancy Show Book: The Beautiful No   Upcoming Events: July 27th: San Francisco with Lacy Phillips August 17th: The Workshop by PodcastPro in Los Angeles with K + L September 12th: Los Angeles with Nicole Lapin   Sponsors: HUM Nutrition | Use code ALMOST30NATION for 15% off at humnutrition.com Ana Luisa | Use code ALMOST30 for $10 off a $50 order at analuisa.com Athletic Greens | Get 20 travel packs FREE ($79 value) with your first purchase at www.athleticgreens.com/almost30 Chosen Foods | Use code ALMOST30 for 50% off at http://chosenfoods.com/almost30 (chosenfoods.com/almost30) Article | www.article.com/ALMOST30 for $50 off a purchase of $100 or more SAKARA | Go to sakara.com/almost30 and use code ALMOST30 for $60 off your first order Almost 30 is edited by http://crate.media/ (Crate Media)

Ep. 234 - The Intimacy of Motherhood, Ancestral Healing, + Living Authentically with Peta Kelly
02:00:48
Today we are sitting down with author, mother, and one of our favorite humans, Peta Kelly. Let us give you a few reasons why we love this woman so much: 1) Peta holds family as one of her greatest values 2) She is funny as hell 3) She walks the talk 4) She has taught us how to have hard conversations 4) She is constantly evolving without needing anything from anyone.  The list continues to grow—especially after today’s interview.   Since becoming a mom, she has really focused on the intimacy of motherhood, and shares the outside fears pushed on her during pregnancy, and the trust she maintained within herself. Peta explains what ancestral healing is and the work she does to help heal the painful experiences of her family’s past, like having open conversations with her husband.    While in her twenties, Peta focused on soul growth, while working hard as an entrepreneur to set herself up financially before moving into motherhood. We discuss how she’s evolved spiritually since then, since writing her book, Earth is Hiring, and how her self-care rituals, such as stepping off of social media and Cacao ceremonies, have changed since becoming a mom. We could talk to our girl all day, but we hope this conversation will fill you up for a while—self-expression, personal growth, and relationships—LET’S GO!

Ep. 232 - Ayana Young on Climate Change + How We Can Reconnect with and Save Mother Earth
01:47:22
Our relationship with Mother Earth, and the need for even the smallest of actions to protect her, is our focus in today’s podcast with Ayana Young. She is the founder of the nonprofit For The Wild which now encompasses the 1 Million Redwoods reforestation project, For the Wild podcast, and a new spinoff series birthed from a preservation campaign around the Tongass National Forest. Ayana’s journey as an advocate and protector of our Earth began when she was studying Ecology at Columbia University.  She eventually dropped out to become a full time political organizer. She intertwined the environmental concerns with the “Occupy Wall Street” movement to bring awareness to the decline of our planet’s health.   Ayana’s passion comes through as she illustrates how we are connected to everything; our modern lives are directly related to taking resources from the planet and not reciprocating. She explains the detriments of logging and building dams and howgold mining has created genocide in the west by producing high volumes of waste water. She urges us to invest in our local communities, and to educate ourselves and become more aware of climate change even when it’s overwhelming and heartbreaking. Ayana shares how she recommits herself to the Earth every day, and how each of us can reestablish that connection.   We also talk about: The politics behind forest fires What organic really means Funding of scientific studies The extinction of animals Being a steward of the earth   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: Learn: forthewild.world Listen: For The Wild Instagram: @for.the.wild Twitter: @ForTheWild_ Facebook: For The Wild  Email: connect@forthewild.world   Upcoming Events: Almost 30 Tour   Sponsors: HUM Nutrition | Use code ALMOST30NATION for 15% off at humnutrition.com Sanctuary World | sanctuaryworld.co or in app store Sanctuary Astrology Chosen Foods | Use code ALMOST30 for 50% off at http://chosenfoods.com/almost30 (chosenfoods.com/almost30) Daily Harvest | Use code ALMOST30 for 3 FREE Cups in your first box at http://www.daily-harvest.com/ (www.daily-harvest.com) Skinny Dipped | Use code ALMOST30 for 20% off at https://skinnydipped.com/ (skinnydipped.com) Almost 30 is edited by http://crate.media/ (Crate Media)

Ep. 231 - Dr. Jen Esquer on Overcoming Infidelity + Reconnecting to Your Body + Intuition
01:28:32
This episode if for anyone who has ever felt disconnected from their body and intuition, for anyone navigating life after betrayal and for anyone wanting to forgive others and themselves. This is an intimate conversation on relationships, trust, listening to your physical and emotional bodies. Joining us is physical therapist Dr. Jen Esquer, founder of the The Mobility Method, known for relieving pain, preventing injury, and optimizing movement. Jen is all about affecting change in the body through education, movement, and building appreciation for what our unique bodies are capable of doing.   But we are honored to have Jen talk about more than mobility today. She opens up about her past relationship ending in infidelity, the way she handled the heartbreak, and how connected she became to her inner knowing. It really struck a chord with us when she discusses the importance of having friends that can hold a safe space, without judgment, to release the spectrum of emotions that may arise. We unpack the benefits of breathwork and the effect it can have on your parasympathetic nervous system.  For example, it allows one to release emotions so they don’t stay trapped. Jen gives a generous tool box if we ever lose ourselves in someone or a situation and want to reconnect with who we really are.   We also talk about: Knowing when to leave and when to work on a relationship How our triggers may affect other people Finding forgiveness for yourself Expectations versus reality (when someone shows you who they are, believe them!)  Understanding pain, mobility, and breath   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: Instagram: @docjenfit Learn more: https://www.docjenfit.com/ (docjenfit.com)   Upcoming Events: Almost 30 Tour   Sponsors: Four Sigmatic | Use code ALMOST30 for 15% off your order at http://foursigmatic.com/almost30 (foursigmatic.com/almost30) Lola | Use code ALMOST30 for 40% off all subscriptions at http://mylola.com/ (mylola.com) Buffy | Go to http://www.buffy.co/ (www.buffy.co) use code ALMOST30 for $20 off Doordash | Download the doordash app and use code ALMOST30 for $5 off your first order of $15 or more Third Love | Head to thirdlove.com/almost30 for 15% off!

Today, Krista shares her unique experience with ayahuasca  Just a few weeks ago, Lindsey shared her own personal ayahuasca experience, so be sure to give that one a listen, too!  The girls felt that it was important to share their own unique experiences, explain what scared them, what they found to be transformative and what wasn’t.  Even though Krista feels that she is still discovering her journey and receiving downloads on the lessons she’s meant to learn, she wanted to share her experience thus far.  For her, the most profound takeaways have been in the subtle moments. As always, this solo episode is as honest as it gets!   Krista talks about: Feeling the medicine call her The reservations that Krista had towards ayahuasca The three things to ask the medicine Allowing herself to operate from the heart Being shown her sexual traumas The power of saying “no” Calling in kindness Stretching her energetic field to a point of discomfort   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: Learn more: http://www.hundredblog.com/ (hundredblog.com) rythmialifeadvancementcenters.com Facebook: facebook.com/Hundredblog Instagram: @hundredblog   Upcoming Events: May 30th: Denver with Natalie Miles June 20th: Los Angeles with Bree Melanson   Sponsors: Woo More Play | Use code ALMOST30 for 10% off at www.woomoreplay.com   Banish | Use code ALMOST30 for $10 off your first order at http://banish.com/ (banish.com) Poo~Pourri | Use code ALMOST30 for 15% off at http://www.poopourri.com/ (poopourri.com) Pair of Thieves | Get 20% off when you visit pairofthieves.com/almost30 Chosen Foods | Use code ALMOST30 for 50% off at https://chosenfoods.com/almost30 (chosenfoods.com/almost30) Almost 30 is edited by http://crate.media/ (Crate Media)

Ep. 218 - The Science of Ayahuasca + Processing Trauma with Dr. Jeff McNairy
01:25:31
Today we have Dr. Jeff McNairy from Rythmia joining us on the podcast. Dr. McNairy is bridging the gap between ancient modalities and western psychology through plant medicine practices. Dr. McNairy has worked in a variety of medical environments and seen the struggle individuals have when actually trying to heal. Through Dr. McNairy’s intense experience with the most desperate patient populations (addiction, acute mental health, and trauma), he has seen that the only real healing can come from within. In this conversation, recorded in Costa Rica at Rythmia, Dr. McNairy shares the medical perspective on what is happening in our brains and bodies while taking plant medicine, what about the medicine is creating the reprogramming, and his own personal journey of connecting with Gerard Powell and joining the team at Rythmia.   We also talk about: Jeff’s work at Passages Malibu Why we face our traumas while taking plant medicine Purging and why that happens How to dose ayahuasca The research aspects of plant medicine Jeff’s favorite stories from working at Rythmia Preparing for an ayahuasca experience   Find more to love at https://almost30podcast.com/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: Learn more: https://www.jeffmcnairy.com/ (jeffmcnairy.com)   Upcoming Events: May 30th: Denver with Natalie Miles June 20th: Los Angeles with Bree Melanson   Sponsors: HUM Nutrition | Use code ALMOST30NATION for 15% off at humnutrition.com Sweaty Betty | Use code ALMOST30 for 15% off at https://www.sweatybetty.com/ (sweatybetty.com) Chosen Foods | Use code ALMOST30 for 50% off at https://chosenfoods.com/almost30 (chosenfoods.com/almost30) Further Food | Use code ALMOST30 for 30% off your purchase at shop.furtherfood.com/discount/ALMOST30 Four Sigmatic | Use code ALMOST30 for 15% off your order at http://foursigmatic.com/almost30 (foursigmatic.com/almost30) Almost 30 is edited by http://crate.media/ (Crate Media)

Ep. 211 - The LA Foster Care System, Social Work + How We Can Help
01:32:31
We are so grateful for today’s episode and today’s guest, sharing her story and providing an inside look at what it’s like to be a social worker in the foster care system today. On a previous episode, we had mentioned how we’d like to be educated more on the foster care system, and an incredible member of #almost30nation reached out to share her story. This conversation today is emotional, insightful, and is sure to offer you a clearer picture of the field of social work and the world foster kids live in today.   Words from our guest: I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) working and residing in Los Angeles County. I work with children, teenagers, and families with severe histories of trauma and mental illness. The children and families I work with are a part of the LA County foster care system. I support my clients by helping them process their trauma, empowering them to reach their full potential, advocating for their needs, navigating the foster care system, and guiding them through the roller coaster journey they are on. I have never met more resilient people than my clients, and they inspire me to do this challenging work and be the best version of myself day in and day out.   I am originally from the Bay Area and moved to the East Coast to complete my Master of Social Work (MSW) program at New York University. About 5 years ago, I moved to Los Angeles and began working within the LA County Department of Mental Health and Department of Children and Family Services. I was working with a 13 yr old female client who was very suicidal. I was going to her home 3-4 times weekly for therapy sessions to ensure she was safe, had someone to talk to, and could work through her suicidal thoughts. As our time was coming to an end, we wrote each other letters as part of our termination and goodbye process. In her letter to me she wrote, "thank you for letting me realize that life is worth living" THIS is the reason I do what I do.   Helping one person might not change the whole world, but it can change the world for one person. Honestly, that is what motivates me day in and day in. That is what I find so rewarding about my job. I know I am not going to “save” all my clients. I know some will fall through the cracks. But I also know that if I can make an impact on just one child, that I am helping change the world for that one person.   Statistics (from CASA organization): Foster youth in LA is 30,000 33% of California’s foster youth currently reside in LA County 73% of foster youth have spent two or more years in the system 38% of youth have had five or more foster care placements Less than 50% of foster youth graduate from high school and only 3% graduate from college 33% of girls in foster care become pregnant at least once by age 17 25% of youth aging out of foster care will be incarcerated within two years At age 19, 60% of former foster youth are unemployed 27% of the homeless population spent time in foster care Only 3% graduate from college Half of all young adults who age out of foster care end up homeless or incarcerated. 75% of young women in foster care report at least one pregnancy by age 21   We also talk about…   Being in court with her client + the back and forth of cases What drew her to the field of social work Educating others on the foster care system + the money involved in fostering Vetting to be a foster parent How a child ends up in the foster care system Signs of abuse to look out for Working with rauma Preparing for a child a loving family The types of therapies that she uses with her clients Fost-Adopt + adoption and how to go about it in the US The process to work in social work Figuring out boundaries and self-care How we can help   Find more to love at http://www.almost30podcast.com/shownotes/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: Watch: How The Brain Can Change ; Christian the Lion Short Term 12 Nadine...

Ep. 205 - Pregnancy + Postpartum: Optimizing Nutrition and Harnessing Your Power with Daniela Kende
01:58:13
Daniela Kende, holistic health coach and natural birthing expert, joins us on today’s episode. Daniela runs her coaching programs on the foundation that no one knows your body better than you do– how refreshing is that? She asks her clients to set aside their self-judgements, and give themselves permission to rebel against the rules of the popular “diets” out there. Daniela believes that by strengthening your intuition, you will begin to actually hear what your body needs. In today’s conversation, we go deep into nutrition while pregnant and trying to get pregnant– what to eat, what to pay attention to, and ultimately figuring out what works best for you. Daniela also shares her own personal pregnancy journey, her labor story, what it’s been like since her daughter was born, and the conversation around having a natural birth at a hospital.   We also talk about…   Taking herbs during pregnancy Morning sickness What a doula is, and why Daniela decided to use one The different trimesters in pregnancy Other lifestyle changes and adaptations that she made while pregnant The benefits of delayed cord clamping + ingesting the placenta The effect on the pelvic floor Being a part of the motherhood community Daniela’s advice for moms and mom’s to be   Find more to love at http://www.almost30podcast.com/shownotes/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: Learn more: https://danielakende.com/ (danielakende.com) Instagram: @danielakende Designs for Health vitamins Read: The First Forty Days by Amely Greeven ; Guide to Childbirth by Ina May ; Natural Hospital Birth by Cynthia Gabriel yourpodcastpro.com     Upcoming Events: March 26th: Rachel Rosen Event College Tour: Email events@almost30podcast.com    Hotline : 1 (424) 272-1853   Sponsors: Article | www.article.com/ALMOST30 for $50 off a purchase of $100 or more HUM Nutrition | Use code ALMOST30NATION for 15% off at humnutrition.com Alterra Pure | Use code ALMOST30 for 15% off at http://alterrapure.com/ (alterrapure.com) Daily Harvest | Use code ALMOST30 for 3 FREE Cups in your first box at http://www.daily-harvest.com/ (www.daily-harvest.com) The Almost 30 Podcast is edited by Podcast Masters

We are often asked what balance looks like for us, and honestly, we don’t know!  There is an incredible plus balance looks different to every person. We were part of an event put on by us, Youtube, and Dermalogica on International Women’s Day, surrounding the topic that balance is BS. Achieving balance in life is such a trendy thing to talk about, and at this event, we sat alongside other amazing women to debunk the idea of balance. The panel featured Danika Brysha, Sara Tan, Deepica Mutyala, and Jane Wurwand. Each woman offered so much value and insight to business, entrepreneurism, and this idea that balance is BS. We are so excited for you to give this episode a listen.   We also talk about…   Defining milestones for Jane What led Danika to the creation of Model Meals Deepica + Sara on creating boundaries The unsexy side of entrepreneurism and business Different missteps and mistakes we look back on How everyone balances work and personal life Advice for female founder just starting out     Find more to love at http://www.almost30podcast.com/shownotes/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: Follow each panelist on Instagram: @danikabrysha ; https://www.instagram.com/saratan/?hl=en (@saratan) ; @deepica ; @janewurwand Danika’s self-care checklist   Upcoming Events: March 26th: Rachel Rosen Event College Tour: Email events@almost30podcast.com    Hotline : 1 (424) 272-1853   Sponsors: Article | www.article.com/ALMOST30 for $50 off a purchase of $100 or more HUM Nutrition | Use code ALMOST30NATION for 15% off at humnutrition.com Silver Fern | Use code ALMOST30 for 20% off your first order at silverfernbrand.com Robinhood | Robinhood is giving listeners a FREE stock like Apple, Ford, or Sprint to help build your portfolio!

He is recognized internationally as a leader in the field of nutritional influences in neurological disorders, and is a frequent lecturer at top medical universities. Dr. Perlmutter has helped so many people come to understand what excess grain consumption can do to our bodies, and what other ingredients, like sugar, can do as well. In this conversation, we talk about pushback that he’s received about his books and beliefs, the baselines of disease prevention that need attention, and women’s health. Dr. Perlmutter also shares his journey from neurology, into the spark for the work that led him to opening up his own practice, and ultimately to writing Grain Brain.   We also talk about…   What Dr. Perlmutter has learned The disconnection of knowing and acting on information Inflammation and paying better attention to it Maintaining diversity in the gut The wheat industry in America + gluten-free Dr. Perlmutter’s spiritual journey How relationships have played a part in his life and his practice What Dr. Perlmutter eats and how he moves The message that Dr. Perlmutter has for our generation   Find more to love at http://www.almost30podcast.com/shownotes/ (almost30podcast.com)!   Resources: Learn more: https://www.drperlmutter.com/ (drperlmutter.com) Instagram: @davidperlmutter Read: Grain Brain ; Brain Maker yourpodcastpro.com     Upcoming Events: March 26th: Rachel Rosen Event College Tour: Email events@almost30podcast.com    Hotline : 1 (424) 272-1853   Sponsors: Kopari | Use code ALMOST30 for 15% your first order at koparibeauty.com To Be Magnetic | Use code ALMOST30 for 10% off any workshop at http://www.tobemagnetic.com/ (www.tobemagnetic.com) Perfect Keto | For 27% off site wide, visit PerfectKeto.com/almost30 and enter promo code ALMOST30 Honeybook | Use code ALMOST30 for 50% off the first year of Honeybook at honeybook.com The Almost 30 Podcast is edited by Podcast Masters
