516 Podcast Episode 7 : Diet Culture and my Postpartum Experience
Let's start this off with the punch line - at my 2 week postpartum check up I was down 10 pounds.  By my 4 week postpartum check up I was down 20 pounds total.  To a lot of people that sounds great, right?  Personally, I was at the lowest weight I'd been in a long, long, long while.  But being 20 pounds down wasn't cause for celebration. I'd lost 20 pounds in a month because I flat out wasn't eating. Today, we're going to talk about that. TRIGGER WARNING - I do talk about diet, diet culture, eating, breast feeding, postpartum anxiety, and the like.  Pls do not listen if this is triggering for you.  I also want to say I do use the word 'women/woman' a lot in this episode.  I am a cis woman and this is my personal experience I am recounting.  However, I do know these feelings can apply to any birthing person and do not want to discount or diminish anyone's birthing experiences.  So many different types of people bring life into this world and it is beautiful and it is hard.  In this episode I just hope to share with you that you're not alone. - Show Notes - Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  NEDA (National Eating Disorder Association) :: https://www.nationaleatingdisorders.org/ Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.

516 Podcast Episode 6 - 6 Places to find Photo Props to style your Social Feeds
If you've ever been super envious of those perfectly styled blog photos you see all over Pinterest, I've got the solution for you!  You don't have to spend a butt ton of money to build your library of styling props you just need a keen & creative eye. First off, make sure you have a rough idea of your blog's style.  You can start by understanding and creating a style guide and creating a brand board of inspiring images over on Pinterest.  When you do this you're less likely to say 'hey that looks nice!' to something that may not fit in with your blog's (or other social media outlet) vibe.  Understanding the vision of the posts your write and the presence you want to create will help you say yes to better photo props. - Show Notes Download the corresponding planner insert for this episode in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon :: https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  Boost your Blog Articles :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/search/label/boost%20your%20blog Understanding/Creating a Style Guide :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2016/03/boost-your-blog-what-is-style-guide.html Spring Decor Dollar Tree DIY :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2018/02/make-it-monday-diy-dollar-tree-ostara.html Scene Creators (affiliate links) - The Hungry Jpeg - Creative Market  - Etsy -Design Bundles.

516 Podcast Episode 4 : the Anatomy of a Ritual Bath
Welcom e to the fourth episode of the 516 Podcast! Today we'll be chatting about ritual baths - what the heck a ritual bath is and how you can create one of your own in 5 steps.  A ritual bath is my favorite way to connect with my higher self and grow with my inner self.  When I first started my spiritual journey I found the ritual bath would give me the time and the space to work.  Most of my current magickal workings involve intentions, mantras, or affirmations charged with oils and crystals and sometimes a little bit of candle magick.   - Show Notes -  Download the corresponding planner insert in 5 planner sizes over on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/MoeHoward  The Anatomy of a Ritual Bath blog post :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2020/02/the-anatomy-of-ritual-bath-in-5-simple.html  Essential Oil Pairings :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2017/05/make-it-monday-diy-diffuser-necklace.html  Getting Started with Candle Magic :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2019/10/getting-started-with-candle-magic.html  Essential Emotions book on Amazon :: https://amzn.to/38iwnlp (affiliate link)  Ideas for a Self Care Retreat at Home :: https://www.fivesixteenthsblog.com/2017/07/7-ideas-for-self-care-retreat-at-home.html  Thank you to the episode sponsor Achor.fm!  I decided to launch this podcast on Anchor (using mostly my phone!) because it seemed easy and it was free.  And it hasn't disappointed me.  So download the app or visit Anchor.fm to get started.
