I am pleased to feature Jodie Von Kamecke, known professionally as Jodie Vee, for the month of June.
Jodie is a habit-based nutritional coach. She moved on from the financial field to health, fitness, and nutrition as her passion for helping others grew.
As a habit-based nutritional coach, Jodie works with metabolic flexibility to work with our innate tendencies.
Our conversation ranges from how we unconsciously blunt feelings of hunger to the mindful awareness of how our bodies feel when we eat.
Jodie talks about setting micro-goals that are small achievable steps using the current resources that we have.
By the way, Jodie is a fitness body-builder and she can deadlift 195 pounds. Talk about a strong woman!
Find Jodie on her website www.agingstronglife.com and @jodievee7 on social media.
This month, I am featuring my friend and colleague Viviana Collazo. Her stress from working an HR job led her to find a new path to better health. If you have ever been there — that's enough, I can't do this anymore — you will find her story so relatable.
We talk about getting to know one another through DoTerra, and Viviana's group The O.W.L.s. (Oils, Wellness, and Love). It's so uplifting when we connect with like-minded, proactive, health-oriented women. Along the way, Viviana shares her tips as a Health Coach, too. Starting from her Grandmother's yoga studio to becoming a Certified Oils Specialist, Mom, Business Owner, Viviana is an inspiration.
The Gift to Shift from The O.W.L.s is a "sampler" of goods and services in all aspects of health for one price! It would make a perfect Mother's Day Gift for the women in your life. Click here for more info
This month I am hosting Thom Walters from Zen Commuter as the Featured Practitioner. Thom is a 40-year meditator and we discuss several ways that beginners can learn to meditate.
One key takeaway is, "Any and everybody can learn to meditate." He reminds us that time spent in meditation brings a kinder more loving person to the world.
Thom shares how he sets his intentions for the day with three words. I also set my in the morning before I even get out of bed. It's a habit that includes my prayers, and three important thoughts for the day.
Setting your intentions gives you a clear mindset and sets your day up for success.
