THE INTERVIEW

Dr. Laurie Santos teaches a course at Yale called Psychology on the Good Life that was inspired by her experience with her college students and their depression. 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

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

THE INTERVIEW

Ramit Sethi’s 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

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

THE INTERVIEW

Debra Silverman is on to give us a much-needed astrological update on what’s currently happening in the world. 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. (Don’t worry too much. There’s opportunity there.) We close the episode out with a beautiful prayer, a mic-drop moment that we hope will help you open up to the power of prayer and meditation as you move forward through this crisis.

 

We also talk about:

  • What the stars are telling us is coming
  • Moving into the Age of Aquarius
  • How the different signs need to react to this

She’s an unshakable force, even during this period of uncertainty, and she is fully anchored in what we need to do to move through it. Her activism is a call to action for what needs to be done. During this conversation, we talk about what it was like running for president + how she felt choosing to end that campaign, the chronic disengagement from politics + why we are all so disconnected from the process, and what she learned about herself during this process.

  • The climate we are in today
  • Who we are going to transform into

In times like this, we all need a little art in our ears — and IN-Q is the oasis of inspiration that our souls are craving right now. He’s a national poetry slam champion, an award-winning poet, a multi-platinum songwriter, and his new book Inquire Within is out now. If you ever get the chance to hear him live, do it. Listening to him recite his poetry live is so powerful and mesmerizing. Even though he’s sharing his own thoughts and feelings, he invites the audience to go inside themselves and ask how they feel about it. In this episode we explore the life of a poet and creator, finding inspiration, and learning to make a living with your art.  AND LISTEN UNTIL THE END!! In-Q performs a few pieces of his work that Krista and Lindsey request. The girls will never forget this one.

Remember, all of the things that are happening in the world right now will pass as we step into our light. If you need some support in these times, you can find a community of super supportive women in the secret Almost 30 Facebook groups.

 

THE INTERVIEW

Julie Nguyen lived the first 30 years of her life believing that her health problems were chronic and incurable. 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. But she ran into a roadblock: healthy food has a branding problem, and the bland food churned out by the ‘health food’ industry isn’t doing anything to help it. Julie devoted her life to making healthy, tasty food and nutrition education more accessible through Methodology, an innovative company that delivers fresh, chef-curated food to your door. Not all heroes wear capes, and not all medicine comes in capsules.

We also talk about:

  • Julie’s journey with food + health issues
  • Going to college as a Vietnamese immigrant
  • Connecting health issues + emotional stressors
  • Transitioning from finance to tech
  • Finding a functional medicine doctor
  • How our environment impacts our health + diet
  • Advice for female entrepreneurs

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. The truth is that most of us already know that there are things in our lives that we really shouldn’t put in, on, or around our bodies, but there’s such a disconnect between what we know and what we do. We dig into why this disconnect exists, break down what it means to live a genius life, argue the merits of plant-based diets, and learn the heart-wrenching story behind why Max became so invested in the relationship between our food and our cognition.

 

We also talk about:

  • How unhealthy foods often make the most outlandish health claims
  • The plant-based trend
  • The massive problem with food waste
  • Why everyone should prioritize protein
  • What to look for when you are consuming animal protein
  • Integrating rest into your life + optimizing your sleep
  • White fat vs brown fat
  • The effects of melatonin on the body
  • Toxins, plastics, + endocrine disruption

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

THE INTERVIEW

Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt joins us today for a conversation on forgiveness. Her new book, The Gift of Forgiveness, gives readers an opportunity to deeply understand the act of forgiving and how doing so can positively affect everyone involved. But let’s be real: Forgiveness is SO layered. It requires us to be vulnerable, release the ego, and allow change. 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

For more information, you can go to almost30podcast.com/retreat.

 

THE SOLO

Krista is exploring this one popular concept in today’s episode: authenticity.Catch that gag reflex! Although authenticity has become such a buzz word cliche lately that it doesn’t really mean anything, that’s exactly why it’s worth discussing. K & L were recently asked how they were so authentic during an interview and it gave Krista some pause because it’s not a word that she identifies with. It feels like a word that doesn’t allow you to change. This is why Krista wants to hash out the details of what true authenticity really is, and how we can balance being an authentic human while also allowing ourselves to change and grow.

 

We also talk about:

  • Why K hasn’t identified with the term “authentic”
  • The benefits of authenticity
  • K’s goals for her future self
  • How growth and authenticity interplay
  • Accepting growth as a part of yourself
  • Being authentic to the person you are at any given time
  • The expression of the true self

THE INTERVIEW

Today we are so excited to sit down with our good friend Kelly LeVeque, holistic nutritionist extraordinaire, to chat about her new book Body Love Every Day.

We dive into the four different archetypes mentioned in her book and how understanding our archetype can prepare us for success with our health and wellness goals. Kelly opens up about her birth story and all the challenges she and her family had to overcome through her pregnancy and delivery. We wrap things up with some #inspo for the boss babes out there who have to make hard decisions around running a business — and, of course, we had to ask her some of your questions!

THE INTERVIEW

Today we are talking about financial wellness with the founder and CEO of Clever Girl Finance, Bola Sokunbi! We kick the conversation off by asking Bola about her story.

CATCH UP WITH K + L

K + L are kicking today’s solo episode off by reminiscing on their household rules growing up. They talk about everything from breaking rules that were never clearly defined and negotiation strategies to drinking an entire glass of milk at dinner and early curfews. Be sure to share your experiences in the Almost 30 secret Facebook group!

 

THE SOLO

It’s Lindsey’s solo week! She’s exploring her growth over the past 8 years from previous boyfriends and being single, to now with her new relationship. Lindsey dives into how she shows up differently for her new relationship while loving both versions of herself and having endless compassion for her former self. L also unpacks how physical connection doesn’t define a relationship, what she’s learned from a long-distance relationship thus far, and how her current relationship gives her complete permission to fully be herself. 

 

She also talks about:

  • Being inauthentic to yourself
  • Holding back in relationships
  • Being single + spending time alone
  • The most important shift in Lindsey’s experience as it relates to being with a partner
  • Needing the approval of others + seeking validation
  • Having both a relationship AND a successful, evolving career

THE INTERVIEW

Today we are sitting down with astrologer and New York Times bestselling author of You Were Born For This, Chani Nicholas! Chani was one of the first to make astrology more accessible and mainstream, and currently has a community of over 1 million monthly readers. She joins us to talk about her new book and different aspects of astrology while sharing intimate parts of her life, like her marriage to her wife and how it’s impacted her.

We kick off the conversation with a deep look into Saturn return. This happens in our late twenties, and it’s a time where we face ourselves in a way we haven’t before and come into our own as adults. We ask Chani about her Saturn return, and she shares her move to LA, and the deeply rooted trauma she faced and worked to heal on her journey to becoming an astrologer. We talk about how trauma shows up in astrological charts, and astrology as a healing modality. Chani also gets into the details of north and south nodes, the uniqueness of our rising signs, and the forecast for 2020!

 

We also talk about:

  • Why Chani wrote her book
  • Her experience with fear, self-loathing, & resentment
  • Astrology in relation to other healing modalities
  • How Chani began studying reiki at 14 y.o.
  • How to move into an abundance mindset
  • Deconstructing privilege
  • Chani’s intention for the year

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, K + L chat about relationships + being single! Lindsey shares what she enjoyed doing before her new relationship, and her appreciation for having a plan on her own terms. They talk about how the physical aspects of relationships change over time, and the differences in what you openly talk about (*cough* BLOW JOBS *cough*) when in a relationship vs. single. K + L also share their plans for Valentine’s Day!

 

THE INTERVIEW

Today we are live in LA with sexologist, dating expert, and author of The Game of Desire, SHAN BOODY! We are talking sex, relationships, communication, and intimacy. To kick it off, K + L reveal some crazy stories from their past—K before she met Justin, and L during her seven years of singlehood! Once we dive in with Shan, she shares how she got into this field and her passion for making sex education ‘sexy’ versus boring and dry. Shan talks greatly about cultivating the skill of communication, and ways to make sex conversations fun and pleasurable. We explore how our parents, and the way we experienced love growing up, influence our relationships today. Shan unpacks her concept of ‘dating with dominance’ and women being in the driver’s seat of their love lives. We also dive into polyamory, open relationships, and their effect on monogamy - while wrapping it up with some Almost 30 Nation dating stories!

 

We also talk about:

  • Shan’s yuck vs. yum conversation tactic
  • Balancing working on your relationship vs. allowing it to be

THE INTERVIEW

We are thrilled to be sitting down with the founder of MarieTV and B-School, author of Everything is Figureoutable, coach, philanthropist… Marie Forleo! Marie shares her inspiring story of pursuing multiple corporate jobs to find what lit her up, only to hear that voice inside saying they weren’t right. You’ll learn how she turned down a promotion for Vogue to instead work in the service industry as she learned how to build a business and be a life coach. Marie now helps millions build lives they truly love.

In our conversation, we talk about imposter syndrome, following the feeling of fear, and not adhering to the reality of others. Marie also unpacks the critical importance of sales and marketing, and how she’s transformed her company’s culture through gratitude and implementing times of “pause.” Marie shares her test for deciphering between fear and intuition, so when making a decision, you know which to pursue. This is an impactful conversation you don’t want to miss!

Are you looking to take your business to the next level? Be sure to enroll in Marie’s B-School by February 28th! The course begins on March 2nd.

 

We also talk about:

  • Celebrating wins + team vacations
  • The benefits + challenges of being a coach
  • The feeling behind “What am I to…?” getting smaller over time
  • Creating community in a virtual business
  • Concept of “dating before marrying” when hiring
  • Negative connotations with sales and marketing
  • Modern marketing
