"Pandemic" Pet Adoption - Always Great No Matter When It Happens
"I was in a new apartment in a new city after just having broken up with a partner of ten years. I didn't leave my home. I had very little outside contact with anybody. Virtual or otherwise. I was all alone for the first time a very long time. I became even more introvert than i'd ever been before. Feeling sadness sorrow and kind of use on a daily basis. Let me just say that. I am inherently a cat person. But i was compelled to do everything the opposite way of. How about my life up until that point. The all quote. Nothing is working this way. So i'll do it the opposite and see what happens. It can't get much worse in quote. That was my line and my way of thinking at that time. We'll in october of two thousand eighteen. My precious cat when he had just passed away. It was very sad. And so i thought briefly about waiting on getting another pet altogether. Maybe i'll just wait. It was just so painful to imagine going through the worry and commitment. And plus i had just start to travel a little bit more but somehow i didn't dismiss it as the weeks went by. I saw an ad on pet finder dot com for a dog named frank and the ad it stayed that frank was quote body sensitive in quote in other words he was a biter. But guess what that did not deter me. As i read the ad i learnt that he had been in a few bad homes been rejected and returned to the shelter. But the ad also said that wants the bonding phase was established. He'd be a companion for life. I was intrigued as ended up. I wouldn't be all alone for the rest of my life. Like i thought i would. Happy ending for franken me for sure. But here's another pet story. That's just as cool on. Us news and world report. I found this doctor. Liz dare a family medicine. Physician in western massachusetts had wanted to adopt a dog but she hadn't quite found the right time to do it with work travel and other commitments. They're just never seemed to be a great time to adopt a pet and her two cats kept her company. Well enough with fewer knees dog. And isn't that the truth. But in mid-march the world changed when the coronavirus pandemic was declared overnight workplaces closed and like many other people. Liz began working from home. A lot offering visits with patients. Virtually from their homes. Having a dog would help stave off some of the isolation that accompanied the radical change and it is radical in lifestyle so many of us have had to cope with since the coronavirus pandemic began. She says i'm single. And i live by myself so it felt like a really right time for me. Well according to its july seventeenth twenty twenty covid nineteen impact report. The number of dogs and cat adoptions. Were actually down. Twenty seven percent when compared to the same time period a year ago. but foster's were up nine percent. Many states have seen a significant decline in the number of animals. Entering the shelters as volunteers observed stay at home orders but the increase and fosters suggests that more people are willing to take on sick or older pets that might otherwise not have found a safe home to call their own for any period of time because this is an ever changing situation and each shelter faces unique challenges adoption and fostering statistics will vary at any given time. It's so obvious. But there's no doubt that the response from community residents across the nation to support their local shelters by fostering vulnerable animals has been enormous and unprecedented. And isn't that the coolest thing well for liz. The rush to adopt meant. She had to be patient to find her pandemic pet orla name eventually. She connected with a shelter and connecticut right here where i am that brings dogs up from the southern united states. So that's how. She found sophie a two year. Old thirty pound terrier boxer mix. She's chestnut brown with white around her face and white paws and she's got spots running down her chest. She sounds adorable and she is and sweet and she's a very low key dog. I needed to find a dog. She says that was going to get along well with my two cats and as it turns out. Sophia's very good around the cats. Who are still a little freaked out by her. Well let me just tell. This story has a great ending to. She brought sophie home of month ago. They're still adjusting to the new routine. She's totally fallen in love with this dog. So after those two stories. My story about frank and liz's story about sophie. Do you even need to hear the bullet point benefits for adopting a pet. No well here. They are anyway well. They offer companionship. We know that this is important. If like myself you live alone before. I adopted frank who is a dachshund maltese mixed breed. I had no one to look forward to seeing no one to share my love with and no one that needed me and there is something to be said about the human to dog touch. That feels so good. Well provides a purpose to the sense of purpose. Everybody needs pet. Ownership is an important responsibility and one that can be a powerful antidote to depression and anxiety. There are more opportunities for exercise to well this time to walk. Frank during the lockdown played an important role in my wellbeing and his two dogs need to be walked and katz needs to be played with and there is no doubt that these activities with your pet is crucial to your physical wellbeing. as well. as there's getting dose of fresh air is important for both of you. Also it provides a reason to go outside smelled air and be alone with your thoughts. That's right. I said alone because when you're outside there's so much to see and you're using all your senses of very good thing and there's good medical news two that's right. Having a pet can reduce blood pressure the center for disease control and prevention the cdc reports that pet ownership can be a key to reducing stress cholesterol and triglycerides levels. All things that we need to do to be healthy and you know what there doesn't even have to be at pandemic for you to adopt a pet but you can't anyway. It's a good excuse if you need one. If you need a laugh live alone. Want to potentially meet other like-minded pet owners be more peaceful and happier and calmer. This is something to really consider. I know you know this. It's not only you but that furry pet that just may need you as much as you need them. Still a cat person. But i adore my frankie.

Beijing lists grievances against Australia, giving warning to other countries with tense China relations
"Relations between beijing and canberra deteriorating. Awhile have created spectacularly in recent months. Australia has excluded while away from australia's five g network. Australia has cold for an international investigation into the origins of the covid nineteen pandemic. It's spoken up in support of hong kong and protested against china's treatment of its wiegand minority and china has bristled at all of these moves. Some of china's responses have been merely rhetorical and calls medic including crudely goading australia. You've alleged crimes committed by string. Troops in afghanistan others had more measurable effects. Devastating tariffs on australian exports to china including especially ruinous levies on australian. Wine has china decided to full out with australia. How should australia or any other country. China has a popat react or adjust. And is there any way back to cooperation with china for australia or anyone else. This is the foreign desk. My advice to punish morrison repeatedly has do more say lis- do more is in fact. A series of concrete measures enhancing national security pows enhancing now fundamental economic cow enhancing population growth and strengthening our alliances and relationships with countries around the world. Or just the united states but in southeast asia and beyond as well so this kind of patriotism and chest puffing plays very well as china's coming out of covid domestically a want to show and deflect residual public anger over. Its cover up and handling. I'm so getting the country tonight. This way to show that they can stand up and push back against the west. I mean that's a really good message to be spending so it's really two birds. One stone the chinese government should be totally a shined of this past. It diminishes them in the world is hello and welcome to the foreign. I'm andrew muller. China is not a nation known for its impulsively where foreign policy is concerned but using tends to act carefully and deliberately so it should be assumed that it is acting carefully and deliberately towards australia for a look at what china is doing and why china is doing. It joined first of all from beijing by sophia yan china correspondent for the daily telegraph severe festival. I think what we're trying to establish here is whether this is a specific row between china and australia or something. We might see more of in china's dealings with western democracies in general but we will start with stralia. Does it strike you. That china is going out of. Its way to pick a fight with australia. Or is this something. That's just kind of happened. Organically absolutely china's definitely targeting australia. It's been going for some time and it's obviously hit a peak. Now it's every day. There seems to be something new in the sputtered. Diplomatic spat between beijing and camera. And what beijing's really trying to do is to make australia of retail. Australia is a major. Us ally part of the five. The lions and australia matches on values with america. So hunting. Australia is a way for china to send a message to other. Us allies or the country's just thinking about siding with washington and to try to prevent them from considering policies that china dislikes bans on chinese tech firms over national security risks while we issue for instance even territorial disputes in the south china sea being public about stances over hong kong and taiwan china does not want countries to get involved with what it thinks is its own backyard so pressuring australia. This way is just one way to show. Hey this is what can happen to your country if you dare to take on. There's an upside to this too. It's certain swagger for the domestic audience to show that this all powerful country china can finally stand up to the west. You have to remember that. For the chinese government and for many chinese people there is a very painful history and memory of what's called the quit century accumulation. That was the hundred years before the communist party took power in nineteen forty nine during which many say the glorious chinese empire crumbled at the hands of foreign powers. The brits the russians japanese china at the time lost almost all the wars fought. And actually that's when hong kong was ceded to the brits so this kind of patriotism in chest puffing plays very well as china's coming out of cova kovic domestically a want to show and deflect residual public anger over. Its botch cover up in handling and still getting the country two nights in this way to show that they can stand up and push back against the west. I mean that's a really good message to be sending so it's really two birds. One stone does a number of things going on there but let's just focus on one of them because it is a proximate cause of china's irritation with australia and indeed china's irritation with a few other countries. Which is far away and other chinese companies being locked out of five g networks. Why does china perceive that as an argument worth starting because it's not imaginable that any of these countries are going to change their minds. Way is in a way national champion. It's a private company. It's not state owned. But of course any company that succeeds in china is in some ways states approved so to succeed here. You definitely need to have certain. Party officials Tests the quench relationships and people in high positions in your corner and so while we the company that really shows and reflects the rise of china. It's headquartered in shenzhen which just two three decades ago with a rice patty backwater. Now it's silicon valley hub of china and this company itself really does show how quickly the economy here has grown china now. The world's second largest economy in china trauma very broad level wants to be taken seriously on the world stage and so attacking hallway company. That many would consider really national. Champion is attacking the status. That china now thinks it should have on the world stage so it's ironic also that there's concern from beijing. That other nations are talking about who as a national security risk because china itself has long said that it wants to keep certain industries telecoms utilities oil and gas within its own country at state-owned enterprises. Because they themselves. Beijing is concerned about the very same issue that foreign players could come into the country. Take a big share of the market and therefore be competitive domestically. They didn't want to see control here to foreign companies over the issue of national security. So it's actually a bit ironic for china to now be upset with other nations for saying that a chinese company coming in to build critical national infrastructure. Whether that's a nuclear plant or the telecoms network but then to say hey. You can't say that this is a risk. We don't pose a risk. it's it's it's it's. It's not very fairly for china to be saying that other nations

You can't say defined the police because if you say defunding police people don't know that what you mean is that it's a step towards abolition sophie. was what I posted not enough should I have said abolish instead then a friend of mine who's an older activists was like actually I think the word de fund is really important because it's it does represent a step and it represents an an action that people can understand as a step towards abolition, and so there's this back and forth about what is the right wording to use? It was kind of interesting for Sophie, that she was dealing with this dilemma because she just wrote a whole graphic novel about this. About how to try to be a good person in a bad world? The book is called the contradictions. One of the reasons I ended up deciding to like do the book is because I was sort of talking to friends of mine in the like anarchist scene we were talking about like when we first got introduced to like lefty ideas and. How those ideas came through people and how those people. Had An influence on how we thought about the ideas and like ideas can be perfect. But humans are fallible right? The comic is auto fiction. So the main characters named Sophie and it's based on Sophie's life, but it's not actually sophie. The book starts in Paris with Sophie having just arrived to study abroad. Here. I was age twenty. Character feels out of place and pretty quickly meets somebody who maybe alliance more with her background. So she's getting Abban. Sees. Somebody riding by on a fixed gear bike Fix Gear and makes the association that okay. After writing affixed here. Then maybe they're punk and if the navy there punk and maybe they're queer in like Ben. Maybe. I have a friend here. Fake. I saw you orientation. This person on the bike turns out to be another American in Sophie Study Abroad Program and they strike up a friendship. This person Zeena does not as clear as Sophie Hope, but she is opponent. Zina's Vegan. She is very active in like animal rights stuff and very vocal about it guy just broke up with worked at the COP with man we to sit outside and yell things like milk. It's full of US I used to be vegetarian but I'm Nima so I stopped. You could take iron pills or eat spinach character. Sophie explains that she's Tangentially associated with some anarchist or lefty friends back home and you know she's dipping her toes in into that world but hasn't really participated much and then Zena. You know she talks about having a planner full of activists activities and then she also gives Soviet. About these two anarchists hitchhiking around Western Europe. Everyone's making plans for spring break. What if we went hitchhiking? Taking a plane, the gas emissions are out of control and also going hitchhiking is more. Living the ideals I think I'll go vegan for the trip like in solidarity you don't have to do that. But I want to. XENA and Sophie hit the road trying to thumb their way from Paris to Amsterdam. Freeway insurance how? Actually exhausting and it takes ever. So that when they get to Amsterdam Sophie, kind of pulls out the map and it's like, oh, we could go to the end Frank House. I don't know. Like the Van Gogh Museum. Na. Dena just does not seem interested museums only showed the narrative of the victor and they are hierarchical thing that must be abolished or whatever. There's a comic shop. I'd like to see maybe we can walk there. Sure Well, they end up wandering around a fair bit. It's sort of the. The deflation of like we we did the thing and we're here and. Now. We're just here.

The other parent didn't worry have plus plus where both parents gave you a defective gene and doesn't that gene doesn't work great so slow Jane. You'll look up the C O mt gene on the printout. Okay that's the one we did on you talking about does when you're bringing up in win Zeo empty and what happens is fake estrogen from the birth control pill premarin those fake estrogens by the wear made from pregnant Horst P.. Did you know that I'd heard they were animal by product. I thought in some of them income from pigs as well right about that. Oh no pigs are Thyroid medication. That's what it is. I have a friend who doesn't have a thyroid. Nah Uh takes medication. And it's made from pigs so these synthetic estrogens when they get broken down in the body Estrogen S. region gets broken down into three pathways. One of them is breast cancer. Protective one of them can potentially hurt. The breast in the third path is kind of in the middle. The pill will fake estrogens go down the path that can hurt you now that byproduct if your co Mt Gene Works. You will methyl late that it has done. Ain't gonNA hurt. Yeah so we're not saying don't take birth control. We're just saying you need to know how your genes work. You need to her jeans where I don't want that breast breast cancer potential thing building up anyway I. I don't want that to happen. I don't like the pill and Mike You. I'm just not going to go like it causes too many problems. Now if you have a genetic Defect and you can't methylated that that's going to really build up. And that's why you're risking increase so we have to make sure that that gene is checked. Make sure if it's if it's if it's messed stop we know work we're on. How do we support the gene activity? You know having good Matthias being could be vitamins. Don't mercury toxicity. Don't have oxidative stress. There's things you can do to support that gene if it's a problem that's why check it if you're plus plus you're getting off at pill if they're like you know what I'm not doing that not no. No no no no no. I'm staying on the pill then I'll I know ways that I can push your body toward the good path so other ways to correct task from the pill and your malpractice getting audrey refuse. I'll put you on Dinh Diem. It's a it's a supplement that you can take that will push toward toward the good path and away from the bath. God drinking grapefruit juice here and there can block the bad path seeds Berries Christopher's exercising sizing gotta push the Good Path. Because I will say you know obviously from this chair. The pill is so important to so many women and such a revolutionary Aleutian protector of our ability to work our ability to be educated our ability to pursue higher education our ability to family plan. So you know I I. I wouldn't want to not have those options but I think it's really important to know if you're a woman like me or many women out there who don't methylated who just have whatever the genetic makeup is and by the way. Don't think there's something wrong with you. I'm a very healthy person. You know you said it yourself. We looked at my labs. I much healthier than I thought I was. which is great but to know that each of us depending on our genetic makeup are either safe from something at risk of something it was important for me to know and then it was important for me to know that I had other options? But if you know if the thing that my insurance covered was only amy being on the pill I would want to take him and it drink grape juice and make some dietary changes to make sure I could stay on on it and not be worried about it so you gave a great example of story of a woman who would be on the bill and can self advocate. I'm going to do the twenty three million upload my tests. Oh my God look what I have a better do this emmy other. Nobody's telling us this right right. They're not but now he's people know like you can did on your own us. I'm talking about educate yourself. Listen to people who are medically oriented. PODCAST whatever right and you'll learn stuff.

Ah The three hundred sixty approach to wellness health. Whatever word you like unready for it? It's on the to do list. I think they come close. I'm still working on some things that I will. What do you think what do you think patients? I mean you know. We're talking about waste advocate editor Karen to take better care of ourselves. What do you think we can do to advocate for better options in the healthcare industry because doctors like you aren't covered covered by insurance which is crazy to me because I'm like you're doing ten times as much as a regular doctor? Why wouldn't you be the first person the insurance company would want us to go do because we'll stay healthier are you know? How can we say to our our states and our federal government? We want this kind of care to be covered. What are our options? Let's a good point. And how do you change the system. it's a million dollar question. You know that's always my question. I'm like damn the man. HOW ARE WE GONNA burn in a down and rebuild it matter so the answer is starts with the people with people always has and history and it always will be when you in I in others start to wake people up and they start going to their docks demanding things showing things things proofing things whether it's scientific or not that's working? I WanNa do this and waiting to test this and want you to. I'm doing this. Docs will start to go okay. Well I'm expanding this. I'm doing this and the other I'm going to you know we'll start to see. More doctors changed the way they practice medicine. Then a we know what we want insurance is to pay for the services because we're all doing them out so then they'll start paying for things in is it just takes a long time for it to happen but if the people don't start the process assist it's not going to change. I'm excited for everyone. Listening to this to have a list. They can be armed with to go an advocate for themselves. That's good and it's really really cool. What do you think even go a step further back? What do you think are some of the best questions people can ask when it comes to even finding the right doctor Dr so there to resources I tell people to go to is the Institute for Functional?.

"Going to see their healthcare providers. What do they need to be asking for? What are what are tests that are not commonly run but but that we all should be having and how do we begin to ask our doctors to to run those things and to check those numbers for us? Well you know most Docs check basic lab panels. It's not very indepth thyroid's big when I see that's under checked. They just check Nick Markers and they say you're fine or not yet. The person in front of them as having all these low thyroid symptoms. They're not diving deep enough Fair Tins when we mentioned Cardiac profiles are always not done enough. We stay measure the basic five markers classroom but they're not diving into the particle sizes of cholesterol the markers of vascular inflammation. Those were the things that are predicting heart attacks not just like our work in the IRA. So I see a a ton of heart attacks and fifty percent of people who come in who have a heart attack have totally normal cholesterol. It's normal well. It's like wool. Cluster is not the bathroom. We think it is. It's not it's not that what causes heart attacks like too much sugar inflammation. The particle sizes are off system and heart heart. Disease is actually the number one killer of women in the United States right. So so how if I if I may. How old should we be as men or women when we ask for advanced cardiac panels if you have hard disease in your family heart attacks parents grandparents? Then you know it's hard to say number but at least you're around thirty I would say wow. Our seeing teenagers agers with high cholesterol. Wow teenagers it's so sad where we're headed with this lack of exercise for size and Diet stuff. These kids are eating sitting around in their technology all day long. You and I are out running the streets on our bikes and having a good time be back when the sun goes down kind of thing now so different now. It's so different and it's so out of the wrong way. That's a reason for parents to consider limiting screen time as well. Well get their kids moving around. That's really interesting. Okay so ask for a full thyroid panel asked for start. Start looking at your options for deeper cardiac testing thirty days. Let's say thirty five. Her say yes really hard to save you heart disease out. Maybe even late Twenties early thirties. It just depends with so many factors that number. I wanted to lie and says how much do you weigh. What are you eating are you sleeping? Are you stressed. That's all this stuff matters and affects your cholesterol stress affects your cholesterol. Oh yeah really stresses the killer was going to get us all. Wow Wow that's what causes. All the problems look stress raises. Cortisol that your stress Hormone Cortisol High. All the time you can get title bellied always bet but chronic cortisol elevations causes so many effects on the body comes insomnia depression anxiety. Memory Marie problems low thyroid. You get cholesterol raises hypertension. which is high blood? Pressure Diabetes Gut problems. Hormones get disrupted to low testosterone. Do you think that any of those supplements that say they help to regulate cortisol or legit. opticians yeah they are really like what what do you. What do you mean by an adapter? Gin Gin means that the herb adapts to you. If your cortisol high it'll pull it down if your cortisol ause low it will pull it up. That's why it's called new damaging something like an Oshawa. Gonda is in adapted on a Rodeo Ola. Laura Fini wow she sandra. There's all kinds of adaptions Sandra Berry right. I don't know why I find that word to be so funny. It reminds me of What's the word it's like? It's like Willy. Wonk I to me like the ZANDER varies. Do you know what I mean. It's like snozzberry. I've never forgotten the word because I find it so funny and then I think about a kid licking the wallpaper. A psychedelic movie Those are things that can help. Your daily routine. Is that the kind of thing you'd recommend. Everybody just take unadapted Jin every a day for sure like that's one of the things. Everyone is followed me. Oh that's the life is stressful out there and we can only do we do. We do helps to have some kind of some help. In the body Audie yes and then what about magnesium night awesome. Because you're a big proponent of that I sleep most common nutrient deficiency in people as magnesium really why has a lot to do with the nutrients in our food and our body burns it up. It's involved in over. Used to three hundred reactions in the cell now is over seven hundred hundred reactions in the cell. It's play a role in their man. You better have that tank up. But so many our actions is involved with get sucked down fast and magnesium found in lots of green leafy stuff and people aren't eating enough of that stuff and they're dying anyway and then the stuff that they are eating is not that nutrient rich anymore because our soil isn't what it used to be either right. This is crazy They're looking at a study was done looking at celery in Halle nitric oxide raises in our body from eating celery nitric oxide Vasil dilates blood vessels and keeps unhealthy. Oh then you gotta go back and explain to people what that means. You're like Vasile dilates. What are your doctor? Nitric oxide gets produced in our blood vessel. Walls Okay helps keeps them healthy in elastic back in open injectable and when you talk about a blood vessel are you talking about an actual red blood cell. Blood vessel is like the pipe with which all your blood runs through all however your body all the pipe. The full vascular system arteries rate. You see the vascular system in the suspension at the bodies exhibit using so-called. We should put that in this story for you guys so you can see what when it is. In the walls of the blood vessels your nitric oxides sounds pretty this and helps them be flexible. Elastic protect your cholesterol informing plaque and creating heart disease. So we know that certain foods as we eat like celery can increase nitric oxide production. They looked at where did celery come from the United States. And how much nitric oxide would it produce in the blood vessel system so in Dallas and in Los Angeles you had to eat four five stocks of celery to get X. amount of nitric oxide produced but in New York you had to eat eighty six O of celery to get the same amount of nitric oxide production. So that shows you how. It's so different. Where your food comes from two effector biology? Oh eat this diet. XYZ Diet but denies all relive. Now it's getting very complicated is getting very makes your head spin. This is my implanting my own garden. I'm like fucking I'm out. I'm I'm GonNa just start to grow some things. Things see what happens a little patch. Gardening be amazing. Yeah Ganic okay. So That's interesting. That's where we were though magnesium for sleep you said it's the most common deficiency and why because I know when I take magnesium to sleep it's the best of my life. What what is it doing it? It's a it's a relaxant. Basically it makes you relax. Fueled like magnesium bass magnesium salts it does open up the blood vessels it does vase dilate. We call it. Just relax you. It's very calming and the nervous system to feel good and you sleep good but you know it's something that's one of the things I think most people should be taking. There's different forms of magnesium that you need to know about okay. Magnesium glycemic made in magnesium malate those are the magnesium is absorbed in your body and are good for you but MAG citrate magnesium oxide. Those are the ones that don't get absorbed into your bloodstream. And they stay in the gut and they make you poop. That's why I really products that are more these types of magnesium make you poop. They don't help you relax and feel all good. You need the ones that get in your your body. Interest can't Willy Nilly magnesium it's like Mag Malate or magnesium glysophate good citrate oxide. You're going to be pooping and not getting all the love love. There might be people listening. Who need that is for sure? And in that case go I'll but as the first two that you wanNA take it night. Yeah or if you have problems the cost of patient not give me something I can help take both. I'm taking that form for that relaxation. I'm taking that format and go to the bathroom. So you'd take one of each at night or something interesting. Look look at this the more you now something that I would like to talk to you about and again I know it's probably not totally normal for people to talk about their own medical history or whatever in public but as a woman. I think that this is a really important conversation to have one of the things we ran in a bunch of panels you tested. I mean every thing on and in my body and one of the things that we looked at was genetic testing and and I'll just try to simply explain this for folks at home because I can't show you a diagram but essentially there's these two columns of the genes who inherit from each parent and you'll be able to tell me which one it was. I just remember what they looked like that. Both on one response both were negative. And that's not to say that I don't that my body doesn't do something but it's that it doesn't do something well and the thing my body doesn't do well is mentally and you're going to have to explain what first first of all with the genus second of all what methylated has but the highlight and the reason I want to talk to people about. This is when you saw that you said to me. You're not on birth control are you and I said well I'm not. I'm not taking any form any hormones if that's what you mean and you said good because this genetic marker means that you you wouldn't methylated extra estrogen which could eventually UN methylated build up in your body and lead to breast cancer and I was like Holy Shit because I was on the pill for over a decade and I didn't even know until a couple of years ago that there was a non hormonal birth control option. I actually got to help run an advocacy campaign about if you need hormones here they are if you don't there is a non-hormonal option. There's a copper. IUD that women can get if you need to be on birth control and your body doesn't do well with hormones but I didn't even know that there could be genetic issue or just an issue in the body where you could be taking these hormones thinking you're doing a good thing for yourself actually be doing something bad and I talked to. I don't know forty of my girlfriends girlfriends about this. Co Workers Women. I work with women. I do voting stuff with friends of mine and nobody had ever heard of this and I thought this is a real disservice to women because we have the options. But nobody's talking to us about it and nobody's actually telling us what our bodies do or don't do properly. So can you walk us through that particular genome gene. I don't even know that particular gene so that other women can ask their your doctors for these kinds of tests. You know other women can even find out without going to your doctor for that test. Really Yeah you just go to twenty three and me undo that you can download your raw data off twenty three and me onto your computer. And then you can upload that data to a website it called genetic genie genetic Genie Dot Com. Okay and you upload it and you'll see your method you will upload it to the methylation status US page and you'll it will print out for you what your methylation status is. What will it be positive or negative? Show.

So what do you recommend you know. Not Everybody has time to go to a spin class or a workout or whatever every day what do you say is the sort of bare air minimum. Something like like Lauren. Who introduced us? She's got these foam rolling videos. You can do at home and you won't sweat. I'm curious as it is twenty minutes. MINIMA Mama Day is thirty. Isn't gopher a long walk after dinner. You know what what do you say when when you talk about daily do nothing. I'll have you start slow and just two walks walks kinda work yourself into. It just depends on your conditioning but I try to get people to do at least three days a week of high intensity interval training it so so that's been shown science shows that that's probably the most effective bang for your buck. You can bang out a hit workout in less than thirty minutes twenty minutes so we're somewhere in there. You can do it in your bedroom. You don't even need any equipment you can you doing.

But sometimes we find ourselves in a new role that we never thought we'd a half that was the case with Hood Catan. The CO founder of Hooda Beauty coulda started her career on Youtube as beauty logger and never like so many any of us thought she'd inherit the title of CEO by nature of founding accompany. And sometimes it proves that life has other plans for you and it's okay way to embrace being your own kind of leader. Here's a little bit of my conversation with. We don't know where capable of you know like you get put into position and you don't even know all of a sudden you becomes somebody you never thought you would become. I didn't want to become. CEO of our company. My husband was like you have to be and it really taught me so much about myself. It's really crazy easy. You know what you're capable of until you're forced into that position and so I can't say that enough I think people underestimate you know. They say work quirk. You're working all the time but when you are on a trajectory and you're able to go down rabbit holes and learn things it's business can be such an opportunity for personal growth grow because you're just pushed into things you've absolutely no control over and you have to your buried under it and you have to find your way out. If you don't have the personal growth you won't be able to deal with you know what's to come and I feel like we've always I do a lot of personal development and I feel like I do the inside work so I can do the outside if I don't I literally literally like I can't talk to people I can't I most debilitated so I think it's really important. I've been forcing my my team to do that. Too and work with coach do have had a life coach for three years. How how is that? What is your life coach? Do sounds like my therapist. Do you see to now. I don't know she's She's kind of both. If I'm honest she's a she's amazing. She's a psychologist just but she's also genuinely an amazing life coach And do you know I feel like a lot times. Just saying things out loud put things in perspective and you're almost like okay so so I feel this way. I feel frustrated because I want to do this and I feel like I am. You know there's so much more that I want to happen but you have all these feelings inside and then we start right putting them out like side all of a sudden. This is actually how I fix us and this is why this is happening. And maybe it needs to be a little patient here But it's just it's it puts a lot of clarity the only thing I will tell you was I know. There's a lot of life coaches out there. I think that you really need to find the right one for you. That's really what changed my life. Lop She's amazing. So WanNA get back to who to beauty yes How did you initially fund it? So I Bart six thousand dollars for my sister and I promised her. If I didn't sell the lashes I was gonNA wear them malm. Pay Her back one last time and she agreed. She's really nice. I actually calculate I was like wow. That would've taken me my entire lifetime as if they to increase the And then so we funded ourselves and then it wasn't enough honestly so I had to do a couple of makeup because we are struggling You know we were struggling so badly for the first couple of years and actually the distributor we had at the time was like. Hey we'll help fund you guys And it was really challenging because then they ended up not not ordering that many products because I think they want to keep our value down and it was really challenging. How did you figure out how to make eyelashes? Oh God my sister. Mona forced me into it. Because I was like I'm not GonNa do this. We're not starting a brand. We're not GONNA do it. She's like no er and she actually found manufacturers that we work with and she like I was cutting them up and making aching me she was taking those and sending them over.

I was definitely guilty of just I. Okay Yeah I'll do that all all work nights. I work weekends all kind of Bianco Twenty four seven but if this is it okay. I'll just keep working really hard. Okay 'cause I know I have a good job okay. I'm lucky the worth piece came in. I think if maybe that comes with age maybe that comes with ten year. Maybe that comes with All of that but I think the the worth piece really became evident to me when I was used so much and I was on a you know I was taking up a lot of real estate on the network so I knew I had value because they kept giving me jobs to do so as obviously good enough at it but then when the play came into tried negotiate for considerably more money and being refused That get Jibril angry. You know that gets you that gets you pissed off enough to then really reevaluate where you are. You said. It wasn't about the money but at some point it does become about the money because because money something that matters to all of us no matter where on the pay scale we are. We all deserve to be paid. What were worth And at some point you found out that your peer was making twice your salary Tell me about the conversation how that came to light how you found out about that. All the time I was doing two shows of his in like February of my last year there and I was hosting a two hour live. Show back our conversation Asian about live. TV and how how much harder that is. I was hosting that show for two hours every day and then I was doing the nightly news E. News about three days a week at that time So I was doing I was I was on a Lotta shows working hard at that. I never worked and I had just started coming in even four hours earlier to a day to do that. Live live morning show. So my hours had increased my job load had certainly increased and And I've been there twelve years and so someone female executive in fact kind of called me into this meeting saying it was about one thing but then I started you know who the executives call me. What's it really about? It was one of those things and we. We ended up in my dressing room and the door closes and and and it was part of a bigger conversation but she just said you need to know that you are severely underpaid underpaid and In comparison to him and I was like. Oh okay. Why is she telling why why I Y is she? She telling me this because I knew my contract was up at the end of the year so usually in TV land. You know. It's about a six month negotiation. Do they want me to say aged. Want me to go I might do. I WANNA stay. How all the many variables that are involved in? So it just got my mind you know I was like barest a little bit. I was like wait what I had never even thought about it. Like I probably assumed he made more Or some more but not drastically more so I I went and asked him because we were very very good friends and he confirmed what she had said and then I got fired up so then I was like okay. Hold on because I was working so hard I think when you work so hard and you give so much of yourself in her so dedicated her so loyal to company. And then you find that out. It's hurtful so Is I okay. Information is power went to my team Because again like in our business for those of you listening listening you know you. Don't you are not the person in the room doing your negotiations you are of course in charge of your own destiny and you give the cues to your team but we all decided I said Hey. I want ballpark. Like if I'm GonNA continue at this rapid rate and and this is a situation just to be very clear where it was very apples apples to apples? You know and when you are a single mom of two kids it's like you know I'm GonNa fight this fight but I also I didn't even think it would be a fight because I really really was so convicted. In the fact that we were equals that I was like. Oh we'll do the right thing. They'll do the right thing I've done. Two shows get up earlier. I'm here sooner every day. I mean you know all these things things and so for all to the purposes we were there the same amount of years and we were doing. You know the similar jobs if not the same job as co-hosts or hosts on Johny and we were similar profile. You know like as far as like it wasn't like he was ten times more famous or something or had seventeen more shows or you know it was very neck and neck and so I thought they would. I thought they'd meet me there and they just refused they just refused and so the writing was on the wall and is like you know what the peace I've never quite said it like it was not.

"Incredible author of a book called more than enough. She's a dear friend former editor in chief of Teen Vogue and when we sat down to chat this May Elaine shared how she went about hiring a diverse team and changing the media landscape during her time at Conde Nast. I was hired at such a interesting turning point in our country. You know we were in the Obama era and there was this sense that We were almost approaching a post racial reality in America which we all know now was never true but I think you know as we inch towards two dozen sixteen in you know the presidential election. I think a lot of truths were unearthed. And people had a to confront realities. That maybe they weren't as comfortable talking about before and it was unavoidable like the end. The other the other side of it is that you know this conversation about diversity and inclusion can kind of sometimes feel like just jargon like we're just throwing around buzz words that we don't really understand and the meaning of but the reality is that you know inclusion and diversity and inclusion is a business imperative and it benefits the bottom line when you have a more more diverse team when you have you know work that is more representative of the world and no one's going to say no when you're winning no one's going to say no when the decisions you're making are actually resulting in success overall. In fact they're GONNA try to learn from those decisions so certainly there were risks that we took and we were I to do certain things And we we we kind of throughout the formulas and it wasn't necessarily an environment where we felt felt restricted. I think that's the Misnomer I think people assume that a big company like Conde Nast people were constantly telling no we had to fight. It really. Wasn't that way I felt. Don't really lucky to be at a company that first of all had a leader that really did in power me. She empowered me as a leader as a director at twenty five which was young and really did hand over the reins and say you can make this what you want to be. I think that's really rare her And I think you know Anna Wintour I think has a certain reputation for being really hard nosed but she's also very open minded did she loves to mentor and she loves to learn and I felt like she was always really receptive to the changes that we wanted to make teen vogue certainly yeah. I'm sure we push folks out of their comfort zone a bit but ultimately I think it was hard to ignore that we were galvanizing new community of young people around this new mission. That was more you know we were. We weren't afraid to talk about social justice in politics and and to do it in the same conversation as beauty and fashion and an and the world was responding favorably. So I think I mean in terms of just like how we did it. I think I think my Momma says the proof is in the pudding and I think that's you know we had to prove that this was a mission that was going to resume. That was going to matter to a new generation and I think once we did it we really did have space and freedom to create. What the kind of magazine Kazeem that I wanted when I was growing up Kinda magazine I needed when I was younger? You did it by doing out did it. By doing it I tried a lot of natural veterans making the switch from conventional to natural. It can be tough. Hug me by bloom was the only one on that work for me. So here's how it works.

"You can ask advice from other incredibly accomplished women. We have weekly digital firesides. which are are asked me anything's With a lot of the women who come on girl boss radio as well well where you can interact directly with them and we came back with season. Two of two other podcasts lip stories and in progress as well as a new series called old mentor. Memo's we also held our second Cadillac or tree in Colorado Springs Colorado. We rode horses and we did so so much more here. A girl boss. I'm so proud of everything that this team has accomplished. But Okay I could sit here and reminisced about the year for some time like forever. I could probably write a book about about it but I want to get onto the show. We're trying something a little bit different this time around. Instead of focusing on one guest to wrap up the year for girl boss Radio we're GONNA have multiple Guests we thought it'd be fun to go back and revisit. Some of our favorite moments and lessons from podcast in two thousand nineteen. I've learned so much from these incredible guests this year. And I hope you have to if you haven't caught up with every episode. That's okay there is still time to binge listen to grow boss Radio but to jog your memory little. We've rounded up five of our favorite episodes from twenty nineteen. Each of these women have brought me some valuable lessons and what it means to be both a leader and an entrepreneur poor and now onto our first clip. I want to start at the very beginning of the season which we came back from a short hiatus to relaunch girl boss radio we kick things off with a special episode featuring reshma sa- Johnny the founder and CEO of girls who code and she shared some awesome information about what it means to cope with failure.

"Call that fight on mentality and that stay in the fight mentality Taliban and it's it into real so I think it's not so much advise but I tried to enter situations with that eh spirit of you know of just positivity and for me Pete Carroll really kind of like like steep me in that. Wow Wow that's so cool I like it as a mantra. I like it as a as a choice of how to live because it almost hearkens to me that idea that if you make decisions Asians even when we're talking about policy shortsighted policy decisions become scary for the future of humanity. If we're thinking about how do we do things that mean we as is a collective wind forever we make better choices. We shoot for longevity absolute and sustaining and I guess to really spell out the the kind China basis of of Pete's phrase it's love it's trust it's honesty it's consistency and its willingness willingness to compete that when you put those five things together in a team setting and in the setting of yourself a willingness to compete honesty truth accountability love. You've got the recipe for magic and that magic can be sustained. And it's a framework that as the the players change and as our individual lives evolve and change and we become different types of people because our capacities change as we eight or whatever when you keep that basic framework Love Accountability Honesty Trust. You're Kinda good no matter what and and it's like organizations that built that in our winning organizations people who build that framework into their lives are winning people uh-huh and right now going back to some of the macro conversation we haven't before our country is struggling to refine that framework as the basis for our national dynamic accountability. Love honesty you know all those hosting nuance Lou odds so so for young students. How do you offer a version of that advice them? What what do you think people who want to go into journalism should keep in mind? I've really believed that people going into media and journalism today can't be risk averse. They have to be willing to take risks and that's hard for a lot of young people because they might be burdened with dead and taking risk is scary a in the extreme for them but if you take risks you can make change If this is not a time to play business as usual we need to shake things up and we need to do things differently but still have that core framework of a fundamental ways of treating yourself and treating others and including people and bringing people but going into journalism and media. Now you have to be willing elaine to do things differently. And you know if you're if you're not you know you're already committing yourself to kind of obsolescence lessons and there's no reason for that and the other thing is in terms of taking risks. Go big go big like like big like like get A. Hey don't be afraid of your own dreams. And I think that's what you represent so well is from an from an early age you kind of weren't aren't daunted by your own imagination of what you might be capable of and other students that I remember from your the era like people you might remember Alexis Jones and people who got into activism and people who became entrepreneurs this idea of of not being afraid of your own vision and believing that you can be the agent of change. That's for me. What this generation generation has it an opportunity like none other because they've got tools that no one else has ever had to actually make those dreams realities and the thing that kind of troubles me a little bit is that for various reasons from the debt overhang to other reasons? Even though all these tools exist a lot of young people are more afraid of taking risks than ever before and and I think that something I mean that speaks to Vado feel like there's a foundation in the culture that gives them that feeling that there's something to fall back on not a safety net per se but just a trust factor that everything will be okay if I take this risk and I think that that should inspire. It's all to kind of come together as a country and make sure that this generation and the ones that come later have that baseline we will be okay. We will be okay and and and and so I think people should take risks believing their own dreams and trust that things will happen happen to make sure that everything will be okay no matter what happens. okay one. More the title of the PODCAST is called work in progress. I wonder when you hear work in progress. What's the first thing that comes to mind is a work in progress in your life work in progress to me? He means peace of mind with change because at my stage of life now with two children that are now becoming adolescence. Young adults just making sense of how they've changed is just makes my mind. Like just swirl and I think you know work in progress is were always working to kind of make sense of what's changing and for me like like the work in progress is like learning how to kind of like activate that calm in in the storm and so I'm really into meditation and really into Yoga and I and I love what that teaches you about practicing your own calm because what they teach. Meditation is the art of Meditation is not being in that space where your mind is empty not and you can look through your third eye and you can kind of feel the kind of spacious. NECE that you can create by you know being at one with your breath breath and so forth but it's the fact that you'll never master that meditation teachers show that you never master that in that your mind just by definition in is always gonNA move and wander and as they put it. Be The monkey. Mind that hops from one thing to the next but the beauty of meditation is knowing you can always come back back to that calm and you can always reactivate your breath and reactivate your wariness of where you are and who you are starting with who you are is your breathing and from your breath comes everything else your heart rate and everything else and so bats a never ending work in progress and so for me that really is one of the things that work in progress means is is coming back to yourself yourself and committing to always coming back committing the that's the work is always committing to return to that effort art to be in sync with who you really are in who you're really intended to be love that thank you thank you talk to you all day.

"Subtitle of the of the course title. Aw was and I won't get the words perfect but it was a something I don't know if it was an education honor An- Anna an analysis of the history of black music in America from slave songs to modern day hip hop and I was like what what is that. I want to study that class and and I think growing up as a kid. La who also had a family in Jersey spending so much time there in the summer. You know my summers went from the West Coast to in the East Coast and being being in this really crazy changing universe of that zone of New Jersey going into New York and you know I like like I went into college. Having spent the the years of my high school career listening to big into POC and and loving this sort live there. Was this energy. There was this vibration of of rebellion. And when I look back now understanding more about out culture from an educated and curious adult perspective than I did when I was a teenager. You know you you look back at the influence of music. I grew grew up in a house where we listened to motown and Elvis and the Beatles and the Eagles and and my parents were so curious when I started listening waiting to wrap and you know my my dad thought he was cool like being able to talk to me about run DMC. He's like well. You know I know some cool rappers like relax Mr Suite Canadian man but I didn't know then how much even someone like Elvis who my dad grew up listening to was taking inspiration inspiration from if you put it kindly from black music and it was just so there was something about the title of your of Your Class class on the page. That made me say I feel like answers to so many things I love and so many things. I'm curious about culturally in that class will thank you for. I mean it was. I mean I have in you in class was like a blessing and like a miraculous moment. Because it's so cool to see where you you are now and all the wonderful work you've done and all the wonderful work you're doing and what you're surely destined to keep doing in all the impacts you're going to make AAC because that was who you were then you know you were always leaning in to com- complicated issues and difficult Colt conversations. You always had that kind of sensibility of courage and bravery and empathy and really really listening to people like being very convicted in your believes but also listen your leader and so you were always kind of like at the center. Winter and people always were rallied around you and you are always in the front row and so I remember vividly from those those days. So it's it's really heart warming and gratifying to see where you've taken your ambitions from then till now and it's it's when anyone would want to see to see that that person has really kind of fulfilled what they present it then. So so that being said yeah I I mean I think that when we were together in that class like I said before there was that moment of cultural change that represented crossing over that the maturation of the cable media economy meant and in the match ration- of Hip hops sophistication sophistication meant that wherever you are in the world. You were receiving these hip hop driven messages in energies. And so just just being aware of that was something that people were really dialed into. What the implications of that are and I think in terms of framing the class between how hip hip hop was one book end and the slave spirituals? Were the other black music always has had that aspirational national journey for either salvation in the afterlife or salvation here on earth and but that yearning is the central mode of black music and that blue's element to black music and it's just morphed and taken different forms us as we've moved from jazz to rock and roll to HIP HOP and R&B and etc but that core is the same so I think I probably wanted to capture that in the class and I think at that moment when you were referencing to pocket biggie. I think because of all of the racial conflicts conflicts in dynamics at that time there was a certain way that rappers than were making the obstacles to their yearnings visible bull in their songs and also shifting the direction of their yearnings so they were shifting their their yearnings to a more American dream more consumption oriented vision of the American dream and and that was new to that the music was part of. The radicalism was about accumulating wealth and displaying that wealth and that was a whole new phenomena that people were wrapping their heads around and and now and so they were pretty much urgently saying we want to take our culture and cash in on the cultural power that we have and we wanNA monetize that and so that was really a big part of of what was going on in in studying all the implications kind of what does black politics mean when cashing in becomes the objective. How does that change? The political traditions of black chimerical will in. How does it make people uncomfortable when you talk about it in that way cashing in on your culture when you think back to the music we were studying starting thing with slave spirituals really means cashing in on everything? Your culture has been denied and remember. We were analyzing how wrap in that era was was very flashy and I'll never forget we talked about you. Put Up on the board the image of Little Cam on the cover of interview magazine. It was a big yellow background and she had like one of her amazing wigs on and she was posed. You couldn't see her body but she was nude and they had painted her. A makeup artist painted the Louis Vuitton logo on her entire body so her body was representative of this luxury leather bag. You know these luxury leather goods that to your point historically had been made unattainable to people people who looked like her and you talk to us about what a statement it was for her to say. No I am the luxury me in this body I I'm I'm luxury fashion. And how revolutionary that was and we forgot. We wouldn't think about that now but that that was a real moment for a black woman to sit to stamp her body with the logo of a French couture house and Dan I remember. I've I've obviously never forgotten it. I was in your class when I was twenty so gene years later conic photo and and I think that how in the two decades since then you know the kind of self branding ethos has just become the order of the day. That was kind of like the first wave of that and you know rappers have a very astute sensibility. All cultural creators do by definition is. They're they're at the edge of what is possible to be thought and they're kind of leading US forward in every arena of creativity and so in that rap arena. They were kind of leading into this space of thinking. About how yourself. itself is a product and that kind of losing the shame of that and because of the urgency of needing needing to be included from ghettoized communities and needing to rise from those communities like that that having no shame in your game as it were is necessary to make a relentless moves. You need to make a change your situation and we live in and time that everyone feels that kind of baseline insecurity now and and and now we have the the comedia- toolkit to translate those kind of anxious impulses. We have to express ourselves be seen in also monetize those expressions. We now all have that capacity but at that time just the basic idea. Have no shame to do do what you need to do to express yourself and commodified that expression and branded and license it and view it as has ip that you own and can collaborate with other owners over that little in photo. That was the beginning of that whole either now. Everyone lives that ethos. Everyone lives at ethos. The whole influence. Our economy is predicated on that ethos for good for bad and indifferent and at the baseline it's about that striving and that commodified your expression so cool. Are there things you remember number from from the second year of class before I start asking you about how how things are moving now. I wonder if because as you say it was the second year of teaching it. What sticks out to you and you think back to the beginning of of your work at CNN and class? I think the things I think about when I look back are just how amazing it is to work with young people who are who are coming into to their own because you're continually renewed and replenished and you know a lot of my friends. They they they kind of are envious of this space where you get to work with never ending waves of really smart and precocious young people who energize you and so when I look back I really think that that's one of the things that remains the same. Is that the level of energy at a place like USC is just so phenomenal and USC is such a incredibly optimistic. Can do place ace that you know from almost moment one. I felt like that was the place I wanted to be. And you know I. I think that's what really defines and the experience is how how deep to the bone marrow that feeling of of energy in positive ositive optimism is and I'm realizing we're talking about the class but so many people who are going to be listening to this haven't taken or won't have the opportunity -tunities to take your class and for anyone who is at USC who's listening to this. You're welcome you. Also have your new favorite professor. Can you give listeners. An overview A little bit of of what the curriculum covered in the course because we touched on it a little bit and I have so many standout moments like the interview cover. And and you talking into us about you know biggie rapping about a cherry m three and US talking about the era of how rap music and and people people in New York City were using music and graffiti as protest with the subway cars and and I remember our analysis of slave slave spirituals starting at the beginning. But I would love for you to offer people kind of an overview of how the course works what you're weaving together through it because I'm sure they're curious areas tales the main place of conceptual inflection is the way that culture is formulated at a time when our socioeconomic basis is manufacturing and the way culture is formulated needed when it's our social economy is driven by communications and IT fundamentally rewires wires society and the way movements occur and the way goals are set the targets that people set before for themselves is like. That's where I WANNA go. The manufacturing era and the industrial era just kind of raid aspirations targets. It's and conditions completely differently than what they began to do from the mid late. Nineteen sixty certainly early. Nineteen seventy s going forward when it was all about De Industrializing and moving to a more computer generated way of creating value and and the real philosophical shift at that inflection. Point in our system of governance is that we could no longer afford hard to help the less fortunate with Treasury dollars.

"Now. Let's get back to the show so amazing that you're able to like sit here and actually talk about all of this stuff that happened to you and like dealing with PTSD and and even when you were going through at the time I wanNA know how did you hold it together and just like exercises a certain level of self care self love. I think there's some aspects of self care that like feel a little a bit like a fire sale you know and then there and then there's some that are really good and some of it. I didn't even realize you know I'm a people person. I really like like to talk to people but I got to a point where I literally couldn't have interactions with strangers and that's a weird how Gandhi but fans and especially for someone like me. I was on a show for nine years almost ten years of my life and then I went on to do this other show so there's fans who you know now at at this point been with me for a decade and a half who are like waiting outside of the set in Chicago and I could not be touched by people I didn't know and so I started having to set boundaries for myself being like. Would you mind if we shook hands instead. Would you my little things where it was like. I don't know you please don't touch me. Don't hug me. I don't I don't want to do that and that that was self care just saying to people hey can. We shake hands. I I don't know you trying to do that in a friendly way trying to figure out how to like make it to crack a joke and make it comfortable for people but also set a boundary for myself was a really big act of self care and giving myself permission to take better care of myself than I was taking care of people who do not know. Oh was a way to begin getting a little autonomy back. to your point you know about how you do a lot of talking circles with with your friends same. I I started talking to people outside of my working world about it and that was really what I need it because there there was too much fear and scarcity within the confines of the job and when I started speaking to people outside of it and I when into the specifics which I've never bothered talking about publicly because what's the point but people I mean people were horrified and and seeing the shock and the upset on the faces of people who I trust and who I love had you been holding it inside that entire yet time though when it comes to your friends uh-huh yeah and then day I talked about how you know verbally abusive it was all the time and like how intense but I never talked about the rest of it with people and I finally just thought if I'd if I keep you out I'm pushing you away and when you push your lifelines away you you feel more isolated and then you're scarcity goes up again so it was really interesting to talk to people who were you're just looking at the facts and not trying to downplay the facts to protect the ego the entity ecosystem yeah that was is really helpful for me and I'm a huge proponent of therapy and by the way I go to therapy nothing's wrong. I think therapies amazing I think we need space ought to be in our own minds and look at our own patterns and understand what good and bad things we learned from our families and those Oh systems and all of its really important avs himself reflection time but I think that spending time excavating excavating our own minds is so important also getting back into a physical routine became a lot of self care for me. I sustained a pretty gnarly injury jury doing stunts in Chicago and Dat coupled with just all that stress one of the things that happened was I stopped exercising. 'cause I kind of couldn't and also I was just so fatigued and I've gotten back into physical practice this and now again it's calendar. D- as though it's a meeting and Monday Wednesday Friday I'm in the gym with a trainer and she is a person who makes me feel very safe and makes me feel very strong strong and she challenges me and it's great and and I've realized that that is a thing that has to be non negotiable for me and I don't WanNa be to Louis and get to into manifesting or whatever I think there can be a little bit of spiritual bypassing in this like sending love lane and life is hard Korea. Life is not all light work okay. There's a lot of shadow and there's a lot of stuff we need to look at but I do think that energy and intention are very powerful all and if you think about what you might want to manifest then word manifesting makes your skin crawl throw it away but at least you've thought about what it is as you want in your life more and I realized that as a person who's baseline is joy and optimism and fighting for other people because because I actually believe that that's where the best of the world comes from. I was missing out on the joy and optimism a little bit so I I look for red and now I see it everywhere and it feels beautiful. It just feels so great like literally every look like look at that cute puppy and everything being feels everything feels like it's been touched with possibility everything feels illuminated and we have the power to create create that for ourselves but sometimes the road to getting here is long and complicated and scary but you can always get out of the complicated the scary and get to where it is you WANNA go. It's okay if it takes time. It's okay if it takes work. None of the stuff is meant happened overnight like it isn't instagram. It doesn't refresh every thirty seconds and that's okay I think for me. It's interesting actually because I feel like the best types of self care for myself are the ones that are always free yeah. Tell me about years of care. I want all now but I just feel like for a while. It was like Oh self care as like means this like moisturizer. Yeah you know and it's like it's not what you don't have to pay for it yeah. You don't have to pay for it. It's really about like the talking circles which you've talked about it's a big one right focusing on a lot of the things that I hold deep gratitude for I do a lot have meditation which I think is really great meditation practice well. I don't even put a name to it. I literally just wake up and like how will it sounds so silly but like I drink a liter of water every single morning and like that's my first. Lake self-care thing because what I realized about myself too is that like I don't take the time throughout the day to take care of myself but I know that water is very essential for me to live and so I like just every single morning like clockwork like start with the holy water which I now love it makes me feel like a flower that was just like put in a vase like alive and then I sit in a breathe and I had just like feel my body and ground myself I self and may space in my room for like twenty minutes and then just mlive quiet and really focus on like. I asked myself a lot of core questions questions. Do I want to be doing all the things that I'm doing right now all the different elements of my life. Do I want to be in the relationship that I'm in MHM. dre actively choose this person you know. I actively stopped using but anyone do that too and it's like do. I actively love my job. If I don't need to make a change are there elements of my job that need to be changed like Howard these things feeding me because every single day as we go along it's important that we realize that we are there because of our actions and reactions and those can change your actions and your reaction how you react to things how you choose to go about things can change at any moment yes yes yeah and and. I think that that becomes to your point practicing gratitude. I see how my reactions change when I think about that when I sat some feelings for myself in the morning when I take some time for myself in the morning. I'm a different person all day and you're right. It is free. That's the stuff. That's really easy and free yeah. we always talk about girl. BOTs moments on this podcast cast integral bus moment is sort of when you feel like you really owned something and was like your most authentic self in getting something done. What what do you think.

She said you're my dear. Don't so you see if I were gone tomorrow. You would figure out how to do everything I've already done and I was like well okay. I can walk out of this restaurant. Get hit by a the bus and just like we've picked. That's it and it but it was this moment where I thought. Oh Wow when my idol edel who's becoming. My Mentor tells me I'm doing it right. That made me feel like a girl boss. I was like I gotta own it. There's all these these things that I know that I don't know yeah but I have to own. I have to own good that I've done and I have to own what I do now. I have two hundred percent confidence that there there's nothing that you wouldn't be able to figure out and I don't know I I am so happy that we talked today because it was so beautiful on amazing thing and I think that we covered.
