YOU GUYS, Steve, our angel baby sound technician, is our special guest this week (and his RAD tunes close out the episode). How the heck do you make new friends as an adult? It's awkward AF sometimes, no? You might have "enough" friends, or you might be in a new city and want to make some new ones, or you might be meeting the same type of people over and over. Wherever you find yourself on this spectrum, this episode will inspire you to get out there. The trio compiles a list that you can look to the next time you're bored, lonely, sick of the same old group, alone at the bar. How about shaking up your routine and following your bliss, mimicking children and not giving a f*ck? Plus, Steve shares his beautifully weird way of attracting new friends, Krista recounts her session with a hypnotherapist that helped her understand the role her energy plays in attracting new people into her life, and Lindsey shares her experience meeting friends on the DM (hehe).
The girls are joined this week by their friend Danika Miller, who like them, is a creative living in LA. They candidly discuss their individual relationships with LA, why this city fills them up one day and can leave them feeling bleak AF in the inspiration department another day. Why is that? Is it them? Is it HIM?! JK. But the struggle is real when filtered faces and "epic" sunsets flood your social feed on the regular. Krista, Lindsey, and Danika share their inspo hacks when it comes to pursuing your dreams, making sh*t happen against all odds, rising up from the ashes of a break-up, navigating a filtered Instagram world, and living inspired for others. The girls give us insight on:
Put on your robe, whisk some matcha tea and get your notebook ready. Kelly LeVeque of Be Well By Kelly, Celeb Holistic Nutritionist, author, and overall bad-ass entrepreneur joins the girls this week for an in-depth discussion about all things nutrition. Jessica Alba and Chelsea Handler swear by Kelly's approach to health and nutrition. If you want to feel empowered when planning and eating your meals, this episode is for YOU. Her tips and insight are fad-free and easy to incorporate into your busy lifestyle. Kelly's goal is to have you feeling confident in the way that you eat. Oh and she shares with us some of her favorite (and famous) Be Well Smoothie recipes. HELLO EASY BREAKFAST.
Kelly teaches us how to turn off the hunger hormones in our body with a fun, simple requirement for every meal that she likes to call "The Fab Four". Wait, hold up, we have hunger hormones that can be TURNED OFF?! Literally, the girls have been Fab Four-ing it since they recorded and have both felt the shift in their cravings and energy. Krista and Lindsey are also curious about juicing. What's the deal? Why do people want to run over squirrels and tend to snap at their colleagues while juicing? Spoiler alert: Kelly hates juice cleanses. She tells you why.
The girls dial it back and find out what lead Kelly to build her successful wellness brand. How long was she moonlighting her business while working in cancer and genetics before she took the leap to focus on Be Well by Kelly full time? Where did she find inspiration and support? Why she is obsessed with education...and so much more. To be honest, you may want to listen to this one a few times through to fully digest this yummy interview. Bad joke, amazing episode. LOVE YA. P.S. Kelly's new book "Body Love" is out this June!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR FRIENDS! Almost 30 Nation is growing every day and we are so grateful. The girls dream about grabbin' a brewski with each and every one of you to express our thanks. But they don't really drink beer and traveling to 34 countries would be uh #GOALS. If they could, they would. But, YOU GUYS RULE. For now, e-mail them! They answer.
Anyway, did anyone else need like a week to collect their thoughts and wrap up whatever the hell happened in 2016? THE GIRLS, TOO. But now, NOW, they're ready to reflect, set their goals, and proceed mindfully into the new year. 2017. JEEZ, weren't we supposed to be sleeping in tubes by now?
Krista and Lindsey are legit catching up on the pod this week. They share just how awesome CHILLIN' on the eve really is. One of us didn't make it to midnight. GUESS WHO! But seriously, chillin' over Dom Perignon showers at the club any day. #ALMOST30.
In this episode, the girls go deep and discuss:
You're going to turn challenges into positive shifts this year....If you answer yes to these questions, LISTEN NOW: Do you have trouble asking for help? Are you repeating a self-sabotaging story to yourself or people in your life? Are you living at a million miles per hour without a clear idea as to why you are doing things? Do you have ZERO boundaries with people in your life? The girls are holding their hands up, too. The discussion is, as always, honest and raw. Set your goals and intentions with Krista and Lindsey this week...it's NEVER TOO LATE.
