THE SOLO

We’re stuck at home, and sometimes searching for something to help stimulate us. That yearning inspired Lindsey to ask herself, “What can support me, what can stimulate me, what can make me feel better?” During this time in quarantine, Lindsey has been focusing on the little things that bring her joy to bring her back to a state of gratitude. In today’s episode, Lindsey shares some of her go-to things that she’s using during this time to give her more energy, inspiration, grounding, or physical self-care. From what she puts on her face to in her tummy, or how she move stagnant energy, this is a super-tactical episode that we hope helps you wherever you are mentally, physically or spiritually while in quarantine

THE INTERVIEW

Welcome back to the podcast, John Wineland! He is an icon for everything conscious relationships and intimacy - he is one of our absolute FAVORITES. And he’s here to share about how our nervous system is the central point connecting our spirit, our mind, and our body. Who said science can’t be sexy? Our nervous system responses are what lead us to believe emotions are there when what we’re really experiencing is just a natural reaction, and understanding that is key to changing your relationship karma. We also check in with John about his daughter passing and how he’s processing grief.

 

We also talk about:

  • The values brought by masculine and feminine energy
  • Your posture reflecting your thoughts
  • Working on yourself from the outside in
  • Getting out of your head during sex
  • Porn in relationships
  • Beware the initial spark of attraction
  • Getting clarity on what you want in a relationship
  • Rewriting your relationship karma

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

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. This week, Krista talks about the good — how she messed up first quitting experience — and the bad — the time she quit in order to go full-time with Almost 30. She shares what both experiences were like, how she prepared (or didn’t), how she actually knew she was ready the second time, and what happened behind the scenes. She helps demystify the signs that can give you perspective on whether you should quit your job and the steps that she took to quit responsibly and set herself up for success after quitting.

 

We also talk about:

  • Looking at yourself + your reasons for wanting to quit

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

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
