This past holiday weekend included many hours of travel for me and the fam on our way to Tel Aviv, Israel via Warsaw, Poland. It was quite the trek, with many hours to entertain ourselves on the journey. While my kids were downloading Super Monsters and PJ Masks, I’ve been pumped about finally getting to listen to all of the downloads that I’ve been collecting. I’ve become somewhat of a personal development junkie over the years, for my own benefit and for the benefit of the women I work with. I wanted to share some of what’s on my playlist right now.
Sovereign, by Erin Brown: I’ve followed Erin Brown for a long time, and I loved listening to this poem, in her own voice so much that I listened to it three times. Here’s a synopsis. “A heart wrenching depiction of growing up female. The author unravels the effects of abuse, silence, beauty obsession, and shame while finding a path out. Revealing the possibility of creating space for our own values to emerge and allowing the same for one another. She envisions a reality with room for us each to safely explore our identities, our ideas, and our lives. Laying her experience bare that we might see ourselves in our common struggles so we can choose to systematically challenge the narratives that bind us.” Find it here.
Women, Food and God by Geneen Roth: This book is a Precision Nutrition recommended read. It’s an important read for anyone who struggles with emotional eating: “The way you eat is inseparable from your core beliefs about being alive. No matter how sophisticated or wise or enlightened you believe you are, how you eat tells all. The world is on your plate. When you begin to understand what prompts you to use food as a way to numb or distract yourself, the process takes you deeper into realms of spirit and to the bright center of your own life. Rather than getting rid of or instantly changing your conflicted relationship with food, Women Food and God is about welcoming what is already here, and contacting the part of yourself that is already whole—divinity itself.”
Grace and Grit Podcast by Courtney Townley: This podcast is all about ‘Mending the fabric of the female health story.’ It’s my go-to women’s health podcast. Courtney is a fellow Precision Nutrition Coach and while I love the guests she brings to the podcast I might even love her solo episodes more because her habit-based approach to health feels very much in line with my own. This podcast is all about simple, actionable steps to bring yourself a little closer to your goals. Check her out here.
Quiet by Susan Cain: I consider myself a true introvert. Managing my energy and my boundaries, is something that I’m working towards on an ongoing basis. This one’s still waiting on my virtual book shelf, and I can’t wait to listen. Here’s the description: “At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over working in teams. It is to introverts—Rosa Parks, Chopin, Dr. Seuss, Steve Wozniak—that we owe many of the great contributions to society.”
