The space between achievement + surrender with Tiffany Han

n this episode I talked to Tiffany Han - creative business coach, mentor, writer and host of Raise Your Hand Say Yes podcast. 

We talk about:

  • Pregnancy and weight gain and post pregnancy frustration and how telling someone “love their body” can feel inaccessible. 

  • acknowledging discomfort. People don’t need to hear that it’s wrong to be uncomfortable. 

  • doing exercise for the first time to feel good in body and not to change body

  • the problem with the phrase “ugh. she’s so skinny i hate her”

  • making more deliberate decisions in life

  • balancing the space between being an achiever and embracing active surrender. 

  • Chasing worth with business goals and money. Acknowledging that these are great but it’s not going to be one day you wake up and then you hit the goal and everything changed. 

  • Why it’s problematic to compliment people on weight loss

  • seeing the link between how we talk about our bodies and what kids take in. How we demonize our body 

  • Breaking down what feeling good in our body means and how to measure this if you aren’t using the scale as a measure of this.

Ep.7 Mary Ann Clements on taking care of ourselves + challenging learned beliefs.

Ep.7 Mary Ann Clements on taking care of ourselves + challenging learned beliefs.

We talk about:

self care being how we treat our bodies, how we move and what we eat

How doing all the things actually makes us less effective.

Thinking that existing in a larger body was a problem and how the idea that you could be comfortable taking up more space was not allowed and that weight loss was the way to be successful.

Why we actually should be listening to 3 year olds to teach us how to eat.

How restriction is often the opposite of what we want. We do these diets and programs that lead us to be less healthy, less happy and less nourished because we go against what our bodies feel they need.

The idea of what is wrapped up in thinness how that comes before being intelligent. Our other successes become secondary to pursuing diet goals. It’s always “if i can lose weight then…”

The boom and bust cycles of movement practices and what the alternative of joyful movement can look like.

Ep.6: Trish Corley on yoga, competition, power, rest and acceptance.

Trish is a yoga teacher that welcomes people where they are at in the moment they are at. I went to one of her yoga classes and didn't feel like there was a set formula that you could "mess up" and I know that is what a lot of yoga is supposed to be like, but I've been to a bunch of classes and this was one of the only times I felt IN my body while doing yoga. She meets people where they are at in their practice and is a rock star teacher. We had a great conversation that digs into body image, competition, power, rest and acceptance. And just like all my podcast episodes - this is never about perfect conversations or getting everything "right" this is about honest conversations without judgement. 

Here is a bit of what we cover:

  • we talked about competitive sports environments and body image.
  • We talked about the power of words and comments when we are kids even from well meaning adults but how that can impact us.
  • We talk about freedom and being brave and trying new things when the element of competition and pressure is gone.
  • We talk about power: defining it and how it has a huge element of rest and ease it it. It’s not just about being big and bold. There can and is a softness to power. 
  • We talk about accepting failure and knowing it’s okay.

Ep.5 Me, solo. Let's talk about resistance

This is my first solo episode (woohoooo!) I talk about how resistance has been showing up for me lately, especially in my work. 

- How to recognize it
- How to get out of it
- What to do next time it comes up. 
- How when things are going well, it's easy for the resistance train to come to town and slow you down. 

"Rule of thumb: The more important a call or action is to our soul's evolution, the more resistance we will feel toward pursuing it" - Steven Pressfield from the book DO THE WORK.
