Episode 85 | Celebrating Your Unique Body

Episode-85-Body-Image-1024x683.jpg

This week we’re sharing an exciting announcement that you may or may not have caught on social media, something we’ve been keeping top secret as we recorded episodes ahead of time for Caroline’s maternity leave.

Getting into the meat of today’s episode, we’re talking about body image again–a challenging topic that we feel needs the right type of love and support. It’s something that so many women, specifically, struggle with and we want to bring more light and encouragement to those who need it. So today we wanted to share our hearts, our own personal struggles and a few gentle pieces of advice on learning to love and appreciate your incredible body. We even have a little challenge to help you dig deeper and really make today’s episode work for you.

Whether you are a mama, a single lady or a woman with a few extra years of life experience, we hope this episode is one that brings you joy, helps you to see your body in a healthier light and ultimately, boosts your body confidence. Because you are incredible, my friend.

Episode 76 | The Mind-Body Connection of Self-Care

Welcome back to another episode of the Colorful Eats podcast! We’ve talked about self-care on the podcast before, on many occasions in fact, because we both feel it is such an important part of a healthy life. The more we learn and the more we practice self-care within our own lives, the more we realize just how essential it is with the positive impact it has on mental and physical well-being.

Today we want to look at the mind-body connection of self-care to begin to understand just how helpful it can be on creating a more vibrant life. We totally understand that some of you listening may still feel a little selfish taking time for yourself, but we know that diving into this topic beyond the “fad” aspect and really looking into how it improves our physical and mental health will give you permission to make it a priority within your own life.

On today’s episode, we are talking about the mind-body connection and how self-care plays into it, how to create a healthy self-care practice and a few ideas to help get you started. We’ve also got a fun little challenge for you that will help jump-start your self-care routine.

Episode 69 | Living Health-fully with Davida the Healthy Maven

Welcome back to episode 69 of the podcast! On today’s episode we are hanging with the beautiful Davida of the Healthy Maven, talking about all things...well, health! We absolutely adore Davida’s take on a healthy life and are so excited to share all her nuggets of wisdom and quote worthy responses to our probing questions.

Davida is the blogger, podcaster and You Tuber behind the Healthy Maven, a multi-channel health and wellness platform helping women to live healthFULLY rather than living for their health. Today we chat with Davida about how she got started with blogging and how her struggle with body image and obsession with all things healthy has lead her to a pretty incredible place within her own health journey, one that has allowed her to create a food and healthy living philosophy that we can all get behind.

Davida shares her take on stress and overcoming the “hustle culture”, how to create more balance and time for self-care and what her furry companion is teaching her about life. Like we said, we are smitten over her take on the healthy life and know that you’ll be encouraged by what Davida shares with us today.
