Laziness Does Not Exist
Today I'm chatting with the author of the upcoming book Laziness Does Not Exist, Dr. Devon Price. Most of us think of ourselves as inherently lazy - but what if we are just tapped out? Burnt out? Overworked? Overwhelmed? And what if laziness is actually just... normal? Protective? Even... helpful? There is almost always a pretty legit reason we *feel lazy* whether it be mental health struggles, not having the support we need, or just... being burnt out. Did you know that the 40 hour work week is too long? And studies show that the max work time you can really "get" out of people is 3-4 hours a day??? YEA!!! Listen to this one.

How Your Personality Fuels Your Eating Disorder AND Recovery with Carolyn Costin, LMFT
According to world-renowned clinician and author Carolyn Costin, LMFT, Founder of Monte Nido and The Carolyn Costin Institute, people with eating disorders often share similar personality traits, such as being anxious, perfectionistic, controlling, rigid, impulsive, and/or compulsive. Rather than blaming your genetic predispositions for fueling your eating disorder and rejecting these traits, she shares how to use them to shine, even during times of crisis. In this episode of The Recovery Warrior Show, Carolyn dives into many concepts from her book 8 Keys to Recovery from an Eating Disorder such as the importance of detaching worth from ego, learning acceptance, and how to reduce suffering during difficult times. === Holiday Support === Sign up at to get access to an exclusive training series to support you in feeling your best over the holidays. === In This Show You'll Learn: === • How to shift your personality traits from darkness to light. • Why differentiating your “ED Self” from your “Healthy Self” is vital. • How the practice of acceptance vs. resistance can help you recover. • Why hating your eating disorder is not the answer and how working with it can help you heal. • Why it’s important to find a balance between feeling emotions and distracting in a healthy way. • What “soul moments” are and how to find them. === Show Notes ===

What you need to know about pelvic floor health (and no it’s not just for those that are postpartum) with Caitlin Day (The Vagina Physio)
When you hear the words ‘pelvic floor dysfunction’ you probably think of women post-birth, working on getting their pelvic floor back to where it was before their little bub arrived. But if you think that’s as far as it goes, boooooooy are you missing the bigger picture! Pelvic floor dysfunction doesn’t just happen to women after birth and it’s never too early or late to start working on your pelvic floor health. Working on your pelvic floor could help you get relief from bowel issues, help with endometriosis symptoms, help those awkward moments when you pee a little bit by accident (if you know you know), reduce painful sex and so much more. Now I’m not a pelvic floor specialist, which is why I brought the wonderful Caitlin Day onto the podcast today to give us the DL on all things pelvic floor! Caitlin is a fellow kiwi and is just as passionate as I am about women’s health and is a highly skilled physiotherapist with a specialisation in pelvic floor physiotherapy - her other interests are sexual pain rehabilitation, post gynaecological surgery rehabilitation, helping women returning to sport after childbirth, chronic pain management such as endometriosis (which a lot of women with PCOS also have) and helping with bowel problems such as fecal incontinence or constipation. We talk all about what is actually classed as the pelvic floor, what can happen if you don't have a strong enough pelvic floor, what happens to your pelvic floor during pregnancy and postnatally, what you can actually do about it and a whoooole lot more. It's never too late to be working on your pelvic floor - whether you're trying to get pregnant, postpartum or just wanting to improve your health generally. This is the podcast you didn't know that you needed to hear - so pop in your headphones, go for a walk and listen to this awesome chat I had with Caitlin, I assure you you’ll learn a whole lot more than you’ve probably ever learned about the pelvic floor! *This episode is for you if:* * You’re pregnant * You have Endometriosis * You experience painful sex and/or periods * You are trying to conceive * You have insulin resistance * Weight gain is one of your symptoms * You’ve already given birth * You always need to pee or you feel like you get light bladder leakage often *Some things we cover in this episode:* * What actually is the pelvic floor? Why is it so important? * How weight can impact your pelvic floor * Pregnancy and postpartum - what to expect when it comes to your pelvic floor * Postpartum pelvic WOF * How the pelvic floor can be damaged (and what you can do about it) * Getting back into exercise after giving birth * Overactive bladder, PCOS and the pelvic floor * Insulin and the pelvic muscles *Resources and References:* * Caitlin’s Instagram (@thevaginaphysio) * Caitlin’s practice (Unity Studios) * Unity Studios Instagram * My Book: Getting Pregnant with PCOS *Links to our programs:* * The PCOS Protocol * Eggducated
