#023 What Women Need to Know about Men with Josh Trent

 

I am SO excited about this episode.  It is a topic I have been wanting to cover for a while.  It is also an aspect of health and wholeness that I LOVE to talk about. Today we are talking about dating, relationships, communication and attraction,  from the perspective of a MAN….which is key.  We are also taking a look at the ways men struggle with body image and weight.

The man who courageously stepped up to the plate for this conversation, is my dear friend,  Josh Trent. Josh is the founder of Wellness Force, and a wellness industry influencer and coach.  He is also a top ranked iTunes podcast host of both Wellness Force Radio and the Fitness + Technology podcasts.

With over 13 years in the health and wellness industry, he leads the Wellness Force community in discovering physical and emotional intelligence to help men and women live life well.

His vision for Wellness Force is to empower over one million men and women in discovering the physical and emotional intelligence we need to live life well and enjoy the process. A KEY to enjoying that process is our relationships.  Josh and I love chatting about this topic together as friends, so here we are! =) 

In this episode, you are going to hear Josh share:

  • The physical and emotional transformation he has gone through to get to where he is today.
  • how physical weight can be a manifestation of your inner world.
  • why you must take responsibility for the story you tell in your head about yourself, others and life.
  • his experience being faced with the modern man’s dilemma
  • how to handle the pressures and expectations put on both men and women in our culture to do it all, be it all and have it all.
  • his insight on male body image
  • what makes a woman most attractive.
  • what it takes to have a healthy, harmonious, connected partnership
  • what makes a man want to commit to a woman.
  • the difference between being a strong, successful woman and having “independent women syndrome”.
  • why your language dictates your life.
  • what courageous communication is and why it matters
  • why being perfect is actually unattractive.
  • how readiness, divine timing, willingness and courage all play out in dating and love.
  • what men want most from women

A few quotes to round out this topic from one of my favs from @createthelove. 

“Fall in love with yourself first.  When we’re whole we can see clearly the types of people who are in front of us as our vision is not clouded by loneliness and insecurity.  It makes everything else so much easier because then we search for people that compliment us, not complete us.” – Mark Groves.

“Great love doesn’t leave.  It stays.  It communicates.  It tried to understand.  Great love doesn’t walk away.  It walks towards.” – Mark Groves

#013 Slow Down, Ease Up and Heal with Torea Rodriguez

 

 

What if you didn’t have to rush?  What if it wasn’t so urgent?

How would your experience of life change if you slowed down? If you eased up on yourself? If you let go of all the pressure? 

Could your body be asking for something pretty simple? A new way of being.

My guest and I both learned this new way of being through our own health challenges.  

Is something in your life asking you to slow down and ease up?

In this episode of IMperfectly Healthy, I interview Torea Rodriguez, a certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® practitioner and Vitality Transformation Coach.

Toréa wasn’t always a health coach and functional medicine practitioner. In fact, she used to be a professional pilot flying jets for private families & charter companies out of the San Francisco Bay Area. It wasn’t until her diagnosis with two debilitating autoimmune diseases that led her down a path of exploration, transformation, and healing. Her undergraduate Biochemistry degree came in handy while she studied her way towards remission of both diseases. In that time, she became a certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioner and discovered her love of coaching. Today, she leads her executive clients through a unique transformational experience that helps restore health, vitality and performance so they focus on their priorities without burning out.

You are going to hear Toréa share:

  • the importance of mindset on your journey.
  • how healing is exploratory, not prescriptive.
  • why n=1 experiments are key to your healing.
  • how to not get overwhelmed and why less is more.
  • what is really going on with autoimmune illness: the 3 key ingredients
  • the need to keep stepping back and seeing the big picture.
  • why building a team is key.

Toréa is super smart and has a heart of gold.  She truly walks her talk and has been where you are.

Why something you don’t want persists.

Consider this…

When there is something in your life that won’t go away, despite your greatest efforts, could it be that this thing is serving you in some way?

Of course this is not conscious.  This “thing” is something you are working hard at getting rid of.  I get it.  It sounds crazy to think there would be any part of you that could be benefitting from it.  Right?

What if there were messages in this “thing” that you weren’t able to see on your own?
