If you are feeling a bit worn out from the holidays and ready to still try “Dry January” it’s not too late to dive in! Changing habits is always much easier when we focus on things to add in rather than what you are taking away.


Highlights of today's episode:

  1. Why being in a bad mood is OKAY… and what to do next.
  2. The lies we are told by the diet industry.
  3. How treating our bodies with tender loving care with what we eat and drink supports not only our fitness goals but our life goals as well.

Hi I’m Meg. I love helping empathic people who sometimes “feel too much” calm their head, hearts, and homes through my courses and books. Ultimately we all want to feel good in our bodies, relationships, and with the work we do in this world. When we remove the roadblocks that exist on the road to feeling the way we want to feel life tend to flow easier.
