I have my friend Claire Gould @getclairified.com on the show this month to talk about partnership and marriage. Claire and her partner AJ have navigated multiple cross-country moves, periods of having a long-distance relationship, and many other challenges in their 10+ year relationship.
This is a great show if you're partnered and are interested in learning tips on different ways to think about your relationship or if you're single and looking for a view from the inside, so to speak. We talk about how Claire navigated the change, how they facilitate communication in their relationship, tools they've learned from couples therapy and why therapy is useful for "happy" couples, her and her husband's annual "state of our union" meeting, and how learning from "non traditional" relationships has lent to the health and creativity of her own traditional marriage.
I'm a single male who's never been married so my view of relationships is limited to just that. So I wanted to share a voice with you to show the other side of relationships, once you've found that person you want to share your life with. Dating isn't over once you tie the knot, your path down relationships is just beginning!

In this episode we welcome Anna back to talk about our book of the month Younger Next Year. I ask her how she feels about recommending working out 6x a week, she brings up the topic of stress threshold, we talk about her morning routine, and her passion for and advocacy of strength training as a woman. We laugh a lot and get a good deal of goofing around in while dropping nuggets of wisdom left and right. This episode is a great way to wrap up our month on the physical health realm.

On episode 3 of our month of Physical Health we welcome my good friend Anna Clausen Williams to the show! Anna is a local health professional in the Seattle Area, focused on strength training at any size and helps her clients build strength and confidence in their bodies while building healthy relationships with food and exercise.
On Today's show we talk about how her acting career lead to a bad relationship with her body image, how fitness helped her find her strength and confidence, and how she's leveraged her experiences to help others normalize their experiences with their bodies.
"I help people use fitness to claim their strength, inside and out" - Anna

Resources Anna talked about:
Food Psych Podcast with Christy Harrison (in the show she quoted her book "Anti Diet" but the podcast is Food Psych")
"70% of our long term health outcomes (not weight expression) are things not directly in our control including DNA"
In this follow up episode to our book "Younger Next Year" we go through chapters 10 - 21 to finish out the book summary. We talk about why you should incorporate strength training in your life, talk a little bit about eating crap, make the connection between deep interpersonal connections and longevity, and talk about Mr. Nasty Time. It's a fun conclusion to our Physical Health book for the season and drops some more good motivation for you to Treat Yo Health.
