Episode 43: Mindful Eating with Kathy Nuss

On today’s episode, I speak with Kathy Nuss, who is an Occupational Therapist in Pacific Grove, Monterey, and we talk about mindful eating. Considering the fact that the rate of obesity has been consistently rising in the U.S., have we forgotten what comprises a healthy diet? The U.S. weight loss market is huge, selling “quick and easy” weight loss programs which are ineffective in the long run. Oftentimes we target the individual, but there are environmental triggers everywhere. We have become a culture that loves fat, sugar, and salt. How do we make the healthy choice when our environment doesn’t necessarily support this? How do we develop a healthier relationship with food? On today’s episode we begin to talk about honoring our hunger, making peace with food, challenging the food police, discovering satisfaction, feeling our fullness, and ultimately, respecting our body.

Episode 41: The Place of Now with Nisha Sidhu

Meditation is a simple practice that everyone can do- which can reduce stress, invite calmness and clarity into our lives, and promote happiness.  Even just a few minutes a day can make a big difference.  It can often be described as healing from within.  True meditation occurs in the Now and it involves paying close attention to the present moment – especially our thoughts, emotions, and sensations.  Ekhart Tolle says, “You cannot be in your body without being intensely in the present moment,” suggesting that meditation is a simple way to stop some of the confusing commentary in our lives, and get back to the truth of the present moment.  What more can you experience and do in your life if you reconnect with the power that has always been within you?  On today’s show, I speak with Nisha Sidhu.  She is a Mindful Life Coach who loves to empower others to be their best self with compassion, non-judgement, and authenticity.  She is a meditation teacher and life coach, and you can find her on myndtreat.com
