029: How Our Body Image Impacts Our Entire Lives a.k.a What I Do & Why
How you feel about the way you look is probably more important than you realize.  As a women's body image coach + personal trainer, I believe how we think about our bodies & our appearance actually impacts our whole lives, and I don't think we talk about this enough. In this solo episode, I get into: what the heck "body image" even is why I feel so strongly about addressing it what I want every man to take away from this conversation why I sometimes feel guilty for my work how feeling poorly about your body causes you to suffer in every arena of your life why caring about how you look is not superficial at all I'm super passionate about what I do, but I think it can get misconstrued and misunderstood. I wanted to sit down and talk through my beliefs around body image + confidence and why I think it's absolutely critical that we--women in particular-- devote time, energy + resources to developing a positive relationship with our appearance. This episode is NOT just for women. My hope is that men will listen to this and that women will share it with the men in their lives so we can all start talking about how our body image and the way we think we look is influencing us every single day in everything we do.

028: Everything Comes Full Circle: My Work, Your Body + Why It Matters
Another quick, "spoken-poetry-style" episode where I express how all of the weird, random things in my life have seemed to come full circle and lead me to the work I do today.  In this episode, I'm reading an original writing explaining my work and why I believe it matters. I talk about why I'm so passionate about body image + why I think the way we think about our bodies is such a big deal.  This episode feels inspirational, uplifting, powerful and so special to me because it has been a long time coming for things to "make sense" in small, odd ways. Give this episode a listen & stay tuned for the next one where I talk a little more freely and less poetically about why I'm so passionate about my message.

Lots of concrete advice here & I hope you enjoy the ideas in this episode as much as I do!

MONDAY MEMO: Ep 2 - Dealing With People That Suck
People pi$$ us off. It's a given. But how we deal with them and respond to situations that are less than ideal is still up for grabs. How do YOU deal with negative or annoying people in your life? In this Monday Memo, I'm digging into a strategy I use to handle people who frustrate me, hurt me, or otherwise bother me. From your boss to your roommate to the total stranger who cut you off in traffic and then proceeded to honk like YOU'RE the jerk-- there's no way to completely avoid those people who get under our skin. So how can we handle them in a way that allows us to maintain positivity and peace in our lives? Tune in to this quick chat for an EASY & EFFECTIVE tactic to handling people that suck.

021: WHO YOU ARE
Welcome to another quick, motivational episode about WHO YOU ARE: your purpose, your place and what this whole thing means. I often struggle with feeling like I'm not doing what I'm "meant" to be doing or "supposed" to be doing in my life. I wonder whether or not I'm fulfilling my purpose or if I even have a purpose at all. This episode dives into all of that and reminds me (and you!) that who we are right here & now is EXACTLY who we are "meant" to be. Where you are today, doing what you're doing IS your purpose. I hope this track speaks to you & helps you feel fulfilled in who you are. For more of my writings & work like this, subscribe to my podcast (Emily Jordan Radio) or blog: www.emilyjordan.me/blog

LLWY Ep. 2: A Unique Perspective From Sydney Blanchard
This episode is entertaining, informative, enlightening, inspiring & altogether awesome.

Sydney answers questions every millennial struggles with and does a fantastic job of shedding light on under-the-rug topics of the LGBTQ community.

As someone who recently began to enjoy running as more than exercise, I wanted to talk with Bradley about how to keep running exciting and also see if he could TEACH us how to run with his 20+ years of running wisdom & experience.
