Build and Strengthen Your Body Safely with Fitness Expert Dr. Shannon Ritchey

Build and Strengthen Your Body Safely with Fitness Expert Dr. Shannon Ritchey

October 15, 2021

Dr. Shannon Ritchey is an Entrepreneur, Founder of Evlo Fitness, Doctor of Physical Therapy and wife. She focuses on creating safe exercise programs for those suffering like she was.

I started listening to her podcast, “Fit Body, Happy Joints” and I LOVE it already. Shannon taught me ways of rethinking my workouts and I love learning from her. I can’t wait to learn more.

I love how she taught me this week not to just do 2-3 really high intensity training workouts and be done thinking I’m good, but to consider doing more consistent workouts that don’t wear my muscles out completely like my intense training days. 

She reminded me that there is a narrow window of total number of calories my body will burn in a day. So, just because I exercised more, doesn’t mean I burned more calories. That’s a revolutionary thought for me.

I think you will really enjoy this episode and learn something new and be inspired this week when you think about doing a little exercise. And she even offers virtual classes and a membership to watch the videos on your own time.

Raising Compassionate and Confident Kids with Author Heather Shumaker

Raising Compassionate and Confident Kids with Author Heather Shumaker

October 2, 2021

Heather Shumaker began writing books in elementary school, but then went on to work in land conservation for two decades and was a coastal program director for protecting Arcadia’s dunes.

She went from working in the area of science to becoming a national speaker on parenting and early childhood topics with her two renegade parenting books: Listen to these titles -  “It’s OK Not to Share" and “It’s OK to Go Up the Slide” and Other Renegade Rules for Raising Competent and Compassionate Kids and she is an advocate for free, unstructured play in homes and schools. 

On this episode you will learn about:

  • True PLAY is the child’s own ideas bursting out of them.
  • Kids process their thoughts and ideas in a recess time. 
  • Play recharges a child’s brain and gives them energy back.

When kids aren’t provided time to play and have those breaks, their memory, focus and problem solving skills and cognitive functions decrease plus their impulse control gets shaky so behavior issues come up. The more recesses they have, the more benefit for them especially kids with ADHD.

The skills that kids need for future jobs are getting along with other people, social interaction, conflict mediation, creativity thinking, flexible thinking and problem solving. When a child plays they develop those skills by playing by themselves and with others. 

Reading for pleasure! That does wonders for kids! If a child is struggling to read, allow the adult to read to the child, they learn so much language by being read aloud to. 

Sleep improves memory, problem-solving and behavior.

We need to be teaching kids 5-6 years old, skills of play to get along with others and follow their own ideas and develop connections in their brain, so their brains are ready at age 7 for academic learning.

The Invisible Inner Barrier to Women‘s Happiness with Dr. Valerie Rein

The Invisible Inner Barrier to Women‘s Happiness with Dr. Valerie Rein

September 28, 2021

Stress and anxiety is something we’re all familiar with but what if some of that was actually inherited. Today’s guest is Dr. Valerie Rein and she has used the science of epigenetics to discover how stress and trauma from previous generations is affecting us today.

Her new book, “Patriarchy Stress Disorder: The Invisible Inner Barrier to Women’s Happiness and Fulfillment”, looks at the research behind this reality and provides tools for identifying and managing intergenerational stress. Today, she’s here to talk about how this works in our lives and how we can identify and overcome it.

She covers:

  • What Patriarchy Stress Disorder is and how she discovered it
  • How this is something that we are passing along in our family
  • An example of how this plays out in our everyday life
  • Free tools in a starter kit available for download on her website https://www.drvalerie.com/
  • The role of fitness in overcoming PSD

Dr. Valerie Rein is a psychologist and women’s mental health expert who has discovered Patriarchy Stress Disorder® (PSD) and created the only science-backed system for helping women achieve their ultimate success, happiness, and fulfillment by healing this collective, generational trauma of oppression.

She holds an EdM in Psychological Counseling from Columbia University and a PhD in Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology. Her #1 Amazon bestselling book, “Patriarchy Stress Disorder: The Invisible Inner Barrier to Women’s Happiness and Fulfillment” has been heralded by reviewers as "the most important body of literary work of our modern times" and "perhaps the most important book of the century for women."

Dr. Valerie’s cutting-edge programs have helped thousands of women shift from “How much can I bear?” to “How good can it get?", from survival to thriving, in their work and personal lives.

 

When a woman makes this dramatic shift, she changes not only her life and destiny, she changes the world. She creates a new precedent of what's possible, the new normal, and she brings everyone with her.

The movement of healing generational, collective and personal trauma is about how good can it get? -- for everyone. Profound changes we need to see in the world are made possible by profound personal changes that this healing unlocks.

Healing trauma restores our authentic power--to create the life and the world we desire, in conscious connection and collaboration with one another and the planet that's only possible when we're in a state of Thriving, not surviving.

We're here to heal for this and future generations and to honor and bring healing to the generations before us.
