We all know the Stuart Smalley SNL skit. via GIPHY And even though affirmations can be awesome for practically anything (think workouts, career goals, improving confidence, etc.), they get a bad rap. Because a lot of time they seem cheesy. And when you do them, they can also feel cheesy. via GIPHY Now, I don’t know about you, but I’ve never had great results in any area of my life when something just felt off or — worse yet — forced. Yet, if you read many self-help books or articles, you’ll hear all about the power of affirmations. (Heck, us…

Meet Sahar Aker, the mental health advocate who started the #IChooseBeauty movement and hashtag — which she calls a “life preserver” for her own mental health and happiness. A former health reporter, Sahar first reported on depression after her mother’s death 20 years ago; she now serves as an inspiration for people on social media as she continues to share her story and build a supportive community online.

Sex positivity (meaning that sex, as long as it’s healthy and truly consensual, is a good thing) is something I think about a lot. Maybe not as much as body positivity, or busting diet culture, or, you know, tacos — but, well, I’m in the midst of writing a romance novel, and as I’ve delved further and further into that world, I’ve become far more aware of how sex and self-confidence and feminism intersect. I’ve also realized how often love scenes either a) use humor as a vehicle to show a character making safe sex a priority, b) make the…

I feel like every time we interview someone for our podcast, I learn something. Or, I hear something in a new way that is so crystal clear that it’s almost like I learn it all over again. You know what I mean? This happened recently when we were chatting with Stefani Ruper of Coconuts & Kettlebells. She dropped a number of truthbombs, but the one that stood out to me was her past experience with the “restrict-binge-shame cycle.” In case you’ve never heard of it — or you’ve never heard of it called that — let me break it down…

In this post featuring our favorite diet-culture-busting Instagram accounts to follow, we mentioned that we were also putting together a list of our favorite podcasts that do the same thing. Because, when diet culture is found seemingly everywhere (even in the sneakiest of ways!), it’s important to have media and content that is truly supportive of the idea that fitness and health comes in all shapes and sizes. It’s something we believe in. It’s something we strive to do on our podcast (although, to be honest, we’re always learning!). And it’s something that we applaud these podcasts for doing episode…
