199. Why Yoga Is Your Easy Answer To Anxiety, Body Shame, and Unfulfillment w/ Jessamyn Stanley
3847

Imagine your life if you shifted your thinking from: "how do I look," to "how to I FEEL?" Don't you think it could change your life?  For @JessamynStanley, bestselling author and celebrated Yoga practitioner, it HAS changed her life, her followers lives and now your life.  Jessamyn is a plus-sized Yoga teacher, who has proven Yoga isn't for skinny girls in lululemon drinking expensive juices, it's for everybody and every BODY. 

MORE IMPORTANTLY, Jessamyn teaches us how Yoga is more than a physical exercise.  Yoga is the cure for anxiety, self loathing, envy and the feeling you're not enough.  It will also give you daily breakthroughs on who you are in this world and what your purpose is.  If you've ever thought, "why would I ever do Yoga," you'll leave this interview thinking, "why would I ever NOT do Yoga!?"

195. Kyla Pratt On Why Transparency Around Mental Health Is Crucial + Working w/ Eddie Murphy
3761

Need a little light right now? Look no further than award-winning actress & ball-of-sunshine @KylaPratt.  Kyla is known for originating the role of Penny Proud, but you may know her as Eddie Murphy's daughter in the Dr. Doolittle franchise, or for currently starring on FOX's hit comedy #CallMeKat opposite @MayamBialik. 

Kyla is a beloved actress, but we learn she is so much more than that. As a musician, mom, and passionate student of history, Kyla excitedly looks towards more "serious" roles on the horizon, even considering a career in producing and directing to elevate underrepresented voices (and possibly retell the incredible story of her Black Panther Uncle who was wrongly convicted of murder.)  She also discusses motherhood, mental health, The Proud Family and even plays Proud family trivia.  She also talks Eddy Murphy and many other Hollywood legends.

6397

Have you been experiencing increased anxiety and depression over the last year? I know I have and I'm sure we're not alone.  Anxiety and depression levels have been increasing for years and the pandemic has only heightened matters dramatically. Hope came today via my interview with performance expert/modern renaissance man @AubreyMarcus who shared incredible groundbreaking, natural remedies that could be the ultimate cure for so many mental and emotional ailments.  Aubrey is studied in the world's most ancient spiritual traditions including the use of psychedelics.

If you're like me, you're TERRIFIED about the idea of #auyhuasca or #mdma (aka psychedelic drugs), but Aubrey makes a VERY compelling case to give it a shot. If that's not for you, he goes in depth on alternatives such as deprivation tanks, shamanic breathing and ecstatic dancing. There's PLENTY of safe, practical advice to settle your soul and turn your life around.     

Would you ever try ayahuasca? It's either a definitely, maybe, or HELL no. Let us know below, PLEASE!  Any answer is fine, but your answer to ‘are you subscribed to @BetterTogetherWithMaria ?’ well that better be a HELL YES  Link in my bio for the full show w/ #AubreyMarcus!

191. Redefining Success To Radically Improve Your Life w/ Gabbie Hanna
4243

This year, popular YouTuber @GabbieHanna deleted her social media accounts, begging the question: why would a digital influencer who built her entire community and brand online delete the very platforms that made her? The answer may surprise you.

Many things surprised me about this interview. Hear Gabbie's outlook on the nature of sexism in the workplace, and how she's navigated it. She also offers advice on separating personal and professional friendships, and We even discussed her ongoing battle with anxiety, a journey that she uncovers in her NYT Bestselling poetry collection DANDELION, a raw, vulnerable, meditation on mental health that everyone should read.

190. How To Destroy Cancer From The INSIDE Out w/ Dr. Dan Peer
3502

Cancer. An awful illness too many of us have had to deal with in our families, loved ones, or even ourselves... I have, and for the lack of better words, it’s NOT fun. Well, what if I told you we are mere years away from technology that will infiltrate cancer cells and teach them to destroy themselves, curing terminal cancers from the inside out?  

Dr. Dan Peer is on the way, and his m-RNA, CRISPR-led cancer technology literally edits cancer cells, and TEACHES them to destroy themselves with new genetic code. He is seeing both Glioblastomas and Metastic Ovarian Cancers destroy themselves from the inside out in his research with Rats, based out of the Laboratory of Precision NanoMedicine at Tel Aviv University.   

He is one of the world's most important voices in cancer research, and it was a privilege to learn from him (plus, his research set important foundations for the m-RNA Covid Vaccines currently being administered all around the world.)  

You NEED to tag ANYONE you know struggling with cancer right now, because I PROMISE this will provide them hope. And for a daily dose of hope, make sure to watch Better Together w/ Maria Menounos everyday! Join our #HealSquad click the link in my bio and SUBSCRIBE on YouTube and Apple Podcasts.

188. 3 Proven Techniques To Transform Rock Bottom Into Your Best Life w/ Marie Forleo
4572

JOIN OUR PATREON: www.patreon.com/bettertogetherwithmaria

What happens a New York Times Bestselling "Solutions Queen" faces a life-altering hysterectomy?

Ask @MarieForleo, whose NYT Bestselling book "Everything Is Figureoutable" has been hailed by many thought leaders in the self-improvement spaces as one of the best books of the past decade. But this health crisis has pushed even Marie to her brink.

Marie was incredibly vulnerable on my show today, and admitted that her recent hysterectomy has forced her to grapple with her teachings, leading to a process of faithful surrender, rather than optimistic willpower. MANY of you have had to surrender to the heartbreaking challenges this year has introduced, and I KNOW you'll resonate with what Marie offers on today show.

But even 2020 offers us beautiful lessons, like the unique opportunity to experience a new level of compassion and empathy our world has never seen. We need each other now more than ever, beacuse, of course,  we're Better Together.

Marie and I have A LOT in common, and I must say, this was a particularly compelling conversation for me, and I know it will be for you too. Tag someone who is going through a hard time and could use some words of encouragement, and for DAILY encouramgent, make sure you're subscribed to Better Together on YouTube, and Apple Podcasts (link in the description!)

187. How To Take Your Power Back When The World Is Telling You "NO" w/ Rocky Barnes
3407

How do you take your power back when everyone around you is telling you no?

As a petite, half-Filipino model coming up in the early 2010’s, the chips were stacked against her. Both the industry AND her agents kept telling her to run away from the unique, eye-popping look that has since become her trademark, and instead, try to look as taller, skinnier, and whiter.

So what did Rocky do? She took her power back. Using her Instagram as a platform, she listened to her gut and focused on a look that felt authentic, and she has since become one of Instagram's most recognizable faces in fashion and modeling. Trusting her gut and listening to her inner-knowing has been the entire basis of her success!

Now she's created her own fashion line (that I'm OBSESSED WITH By The Way), and she's embraced marriage and motherhood with wisdom and maturity (get ready for some marriage advice).

I LOVED chatting with my new friend @Rocky_Barnes, and I was taken aback by how much wisdom she sent our way! Make SURE to your friend who LIVES on IG 😝 - and watch and subscribe my show Better Together EVERY weekday (link in my LinkTree!).

Do you feel like you're stuck chasing an impossible dream?

Dana-Maxx Pomerantz (who created @TheBeHappyProject) gets it. After a successful, but unstainable career as a NY Fashion Designer, she had to say goodbye to that career and pivot to her Plan B. Dana-Maxx is beautifully honest: it was heartbreaking and very hard.

But saying goodbye to that dream led her to discover new ones, and her Plan B has led to her a happiness she didn't even know was possible. Dana-Maxx's newfound happiness is contagious: she's built a community of over 450k followers through @TheBeHappyProject, an initiative dedicated to encouragement, empowerment, and achievable ways to find more joy and contentment in our day to day.

In today's convo, we discuss these daily strategies and how you can start collecting your own moments of joy and dramatically alter your life.

184. The ONLY Belief You'll Ever Need To Succeed Wildly w/ Tom & Lisa Bilyeu
4088

Every day I'm learning that my friend @glennondoyle was right... we CAN do hard things!!

These past few weeks have been challenging to say the least, but I can and I am getting through and I'm also growing and learning everyday because of it. We can do hard things!

This is something our incredible guests on today's @ BetterTogetherWithMaria, @TomBilyeu & @LisaBilyeu would definitely agree with.

The two of them are co-founders of @Quest Nutrition, and since exiting the company, they're combining their passion for media with their burning desire to create empowering content; enter: @ImpactTheory.Like my show, Impact Theory lives in what they call the "mindset space," or the ever-growing state of content dedicated to changing what goes on INSIDE our minds, so we can manifest the life we want OUTSIDE of our minds.

In this show, Tom talks about the physics of our belief systems, and how to shift our perceptions to unlock our best lives, and the idea that pain comes from a lack of growth. Lisa talks about the "purgatory of the mundane" and how we can escape it.

I KNOW you will leave with TONS of "a-ha" moments, and I'd love for you to share your favorite in the comments below. :point_down::point_down: And of course, make sure you're sharing the show with your mom, your friend, your sister, your brother, your dad, your dog - let's keep growing our @bettertogetherwithmaria #HealSquad

3314

Are you struggling right now? Do you have FRIENDS who are struggling right now? It's 2020. The answer is almost surely YES.

Listen, it has been anything but easy watching two parents get Covid, but they're back from the hospital, and it looks like they're home from the hospital and we're doing everything we can to get them better. Prayers still needed.

Today we discussed how to show for people when they're struggling. How can we be a good friend in crisis and ACTUALLY help those who are hurting when we don't know the right thing to do or say?

Today the team and I have that conversation, and share helpful tips if you truly want to be there for your friends in need in WHATEVER crisis they're facing, joined by @undergaro. We offer you practical ways that we can help those who need it, and given how hard this year has been, I'm sure you know people who do!

These are some of my ideas, but I want to hear from YOU! Comment below how you show up for your loved ones in crisis, because we're all one big #HealSquad, we learn from each other, and of course, we're better together.

TAG someone who could use some encouragement in the comments below, and make sure you subscribe to @BetterTogetherWithMaria for more conversations like this one. Click the link in bio and join the #healsquad!!

Maybe this year dinner is on the couch? Or maybe you could try some of these ADORABLE (and shockingly easy) crafts!  But most importantly, remember that this year is about #gratitude. It's been a heck of a year, but when you look there's ALWAYS something to be grateful for, so why not try gratitude jars (watch to find out what those are!)

172. #FBF: Vin Diesel On How To Create Your OWN Career
3805

**ORIGINALLY BROADCAST ON SEP 13, 2013**

Most movie stars dream of starring in a film franchise. How about four?

Vin Diesel is the major engine behind The Fast & Furious, Guardians Of The Galaxy, XXX, Riddick franchises, ranking him amongst one of the greatest movie stars of all time. But people don't realize that he created his own career. Vin Diesel's first three films were written, directed, and produced by him - thanks to self-empowered, highly calculated risks that eventually caught the attention of Steve Spielberg, landing him a breakout role in Saving Private Ryan.

 That AGENCY is just one of the things that we discuss today! If you're not subscribed to the podcast, make sure you

After a week long hiatus, I had a LOT to chat about on #BetterTogether’s Monday Funday show :heart_eyes:

My week in LA was A LOT, but, I made sure to pack in all of my essential appointments. A block schedule is a really valuable way to get done what you need to get done, and we do a deep dive on today's show.

But first, a very important question: would you watch Borat with your parents? Am I crazy for watching that "moon dance" scene with my #Greekimmigrant folks?

And of course, it's Monday, which means we had our #GoodNewsMonday show, courtesy of @GoodNewsMovement. We pay a very well deserved tribute to #AlexTrebek, one of the greatest and classiest hosts of all time.

Growing up, I idolized Cindy Crawford, and even today, I STILL view her career as a north star while I navigate my own. Cindy is the embodiment of class, grace, and sophistication, but it's her open willingness to share her insecurities that make her such an important voice in this business.

Cindy says that knowing your authentic self is one of the best ways to find self confidence in any room, and emphasizes the importance of knowing who you are, because NOBODY can take that away from you!

4442

JOIN OUR PATREON!: www.patreon.com/bettertogetherwithmaria

Five years ago, the phrase #MeToo meant something completely different than it does today, and a lot of that has to do with @GretchenCarlson, the TV personality and well-known host famously launched FOX's sexual harassment investigation against Roger Ailes, and is now considered a major catalyst for the profound workplace reform that has swept across global offices.

In the interview, Gretchen and I discuss the reasons women are often afraid to step up, why Gretchen's new cause is dismantling the toxic NDA infrastructure that keeps women silent, and the main reason she chose to tell her truth, despite being the ONLY one to come forward at FOX when she did.This is a must listen episode for ANYONE. 

We can all grow and learn from Gretchen. Courage is contagious as she says, so share with a friend, we ALL need to hear this.Share with someone who loved the movie @Bombshell as much as I did... and make sure you listen for Gretchen's Bombshell #2 she drops...!!

155. Brittany Snow On The Secret To Positive Mental Health
3972

Feeling ALONE in your journey with mental health?

154. Overcome Your Insecurities with this Simple List
2819

It's so easy for us to get wrapped up in the opinions of other people, especially at work, but that's why we NEED to come with armor, and a fierce understanding of our own gifts. I STILL struggle with insecurity and doubt, but the other day I created a list of things I KNOW I'm great at, where I add value, and I'm telling you, you MUST do the same.  

Take the time to list everything you know you're amazing at. Maybe you're a great listener, a great organizer,  a great friend, a great leader, or even a great driver. Having a strong relationship with your own gifts will make you invincible as people try to tear you down.

153. How Your Jealousies Can Reveal The Life You Really Want w/ Shauna Niequist
3806

What's it going to take for you to FINALLY live the life you want to live?  For me it was a brain tumor. For Shauna Niequist, it was the painful realization that her stress, exhaustion, and overwhelm had turned into nothing: complete numbness. But wasn't Shauna was living her dream..? Multiple #NYT bestselling author, frequently booked international lecturer, and celebrated thought leader?   

Despite the success, she realized that her inability to be present with the people she truly loved the most - her husband and her children - was the final straw. As she says in her bestseller #PresentOverPerfect: "It's very hard to be loved and connected to the people in your home when you're always bringing them your most exhausted self and resenting the fact that the scraps you're giving them aren't cutting it.”  

Shauna's decision to choose presence over perfection wasn't an easy one; as she mentions in the interview, saying yes to some people means saying no to others. But if we're guaranteed to disappoint people, shouldn't we make those people the least important people, rather than our closest loved ones? In today's beautiful convo, 

Shauna and I discuss how to make those decisions as we inevitably disappoint certain people in our lives so we can honor those we love the most.

You've probably seen @DeanGraziosi on TV,  or YouTube, or social media, and for good reason. He's one of the world's most celebrated self-learning experts on the planet, so much so that's he's built a business partnership with Tony Robbins.

When you put Dean on a mic, his wisdom is apparent and immediate. Today, he discussed how this pandemic can be an opportunity for us, why the pain of inaction can move us to make real changes, and why we feel most alive when we shift towards uncomfortable, imperfect, courageous action. It’s not going to feel the most alive.

Dean also has incredible advice about our access to free knowledge and education,  and for those of you struggling with decisions about whether you (or your kids) should go, he'll have thoughts for you.

143. Dane Cook Spills About Jen Aniston & How Why Failure Is Actually The Best Thing That Can Happen
2225

Do you know what day job @JenniferAniston had before booking #Friends?!?

It will blow your mind!  It's one of many mind-blowing moments @DaneCook and I shared on today's episode of #BetterTogether, which featured some amazing behind the scenes tidbits from his recent #FastTimesLive table read with heavy hitters like @JuliaRoberts, @ShiaLeBueof, @BradPitt, and @SeanPenn. I've always loved Dane for his hustle, and you'll SEE it in this interview.

But Dane Cook is far more than a funny producer - he's an incredibly wise hustler, and his views on failure, or as he puts it "the puzzle falling apart," is actually the best thing that can happen to us. 

And finally, we can't forget - it's Monday, and we're covering a beautiful #goodnewsmonday story from @GoodNews_Movement. Learn about the billionaire who dreams of giving all his money to charity before he leaves this earth. Incredible.  Believe it or not, this is only PART of the show.

As the election mounts, it seems like the country has never been less unified, but today's AMAZING #BetterTogether shows us there's still hope - lots of it.

Bishop Omar is a widely respected community leader in Dallas, who began his career as Texas' first gang negotiator, a job where he was asked to go into prisons and negotiate tense dynamics between some of the state's most notorious gang leaders, including Bloods, Crips, and Neo-Nazis.Omar's revolutionary approach to gang negotiations centers on recognizing the humanity in all people, and figuring out our "intersections of agreement" so that we can take steps forward, together, rather than backwards. Omar's beautifully articulate storytelling and outlook really spoke to me, and had me emotional!

This is an INCREDIBLE episode, and I believe that Omar is offering tools that can help heal the ever-increasing divide in our country.

Anything @TonyRobbins endorses always piques my interest, and that's why I wanted to book #NLP expert and coach Damon Cart for my show Better Together, to help us unpack NLP - give us a beginners guide!

Maybe you've heard of #NLP, maybe you haven't, but today, you'll get a life-changing crash course on what it is, how to implement it, and why it can help unlock all of your deepest goals and desires.NLP, which stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming, posits that our experience is a completely subjective one, guided by our perception of the world, our past traumas, and our everyday values. By shifting the language and subconscious programs tied to that subjective experience, we can fundamentally shift our identity, and both set and achieve our goals - and FAST.

Damon teaches techniques like values elicitation, and swishing which are fast tracks to better understanding who we are and what we want.

139. Colbie Caillat On Why Vulnerability Matters & How To Find It
2925

Love this interview with Colbie Caillat where she highlights something very beautiful...endings are tough, but they signify something important: new beginnings.

It has been a year of many endings for Colbie - she said goodbye to her band, and even a ten year relationship - but she has beautifully embraced those as changes to invite a whole new chapter of life. Colbie says she's never been more open to change as she is right now, and she's found a great sense of joy and freedom in welcoming the future however it shows up, rather than trying to plan everything out perfectly.

This vulnerability is the center of her episode in the new Disney+ docuseries #Becoming, produced by Lebron James. For Coblie, vulnerability is everything. It's what allowed her to overcome her stage fright and embrace her true self. She even acknowledges that being vulnerable (even when you don't want to) gives permission for others to do the same!

If you love "Bubbly" "Realize" or "Lucky," you HAVE to check this interview out, and make sure you share it with someone else, especially if they're going through a breakup and need some really wise advice. Make sure you subscribe to our YouTube for more. Thanks Colbie!!

Do you feel like you're stuck in someone else's dream? Or maybe you feel like you're stuck in the WRONG dream.  Joy strategist @GraceHarry can relate.

After a mega-successful career in the music industry, Grace took a step back and realized she still hadn't unlocked the truth of her own joy. Since then, she's pivoted and works as a celebrated joy strategist to powerful C-suite execs and pop culture icons like #Common

Grace says that "happiness is ethereal, but JOY is your birthright." By implementing strategies like "finding your starting 5" and viewing all of your relationships as partnerships to accomplish the goals that we want, we can unlock the life we've always wanted to live.  Everyone NEEDS this right now, so share it!!

Become a member of the Better Together community through Patreon! Patreon.com/BetterTogetherWithMaria 

There's a reason (Gary Vaynerchuk) @GaryVee is one of the most popular and respected media gurus & online personalities in the world: he practices what he preaches.  GaryVee has built multiple companies, brands, and perhaps most impressively a community of millions of followers who join him daily for his wisdom about self-esteem, achieving our goals, and as he says: CRUSHING IT.  

As the CEO of VaynerX media, Gary has consulted with companies like Chase, Toyota, and Craft to teach them how to survive and thrive and a digital world, and his corporate advice can help you too.  But Gary is more than just a sharp media mind. He's a humble Russian immigrant who admits in today's conversation that his biggest fear isn't failure, or backpedaling, it's the fear of creating hurdles in his own life to prevent him from moving forward. 

More than money, fame, or success, Gary values freedom, and he says it's been the single biggest asset to building his companies.  Also, for you sports fans, Gary and I go AT it on the show in a Jets v. Patriots. I HOPE we're still friends after that one...

134. How To Find Your Voice In Any Room w/ Sah D'Simone | Maria Menounos
3858

Tired of being told you’re ‘to this’ or ‘too that’?

Feeling outcast, like you’re never accepted or enough?  Well Sah D'Simone is here to tell you to FORGET THAT. The author and spiritual activist passionate about the message of authenticity and self acceptance, created a space where everyone is welcomed, loved and appreciated for who they are.

But Sah had his own journey to acceptance. After being ousted from the company he helped build, Sah began his spiritual voyage, traveling to India and Nepal to study under, among others, the Dalai Lama, and he's never been the same since.

Now, Sah is a beloved author and TED speaker whose #SpirituallySassy community is committed to inclusion and authenticity above all else, even in spaces that don't always welcome it with open arms. As a queer Brazilian immigrant, Sah noticed that many of the "tables" that preach inclusion didn't have a seat for him, so as he puts it, "he created his own table!”

Sah says that #forgiveness is the secret sauce to presence and has three pillars - forgiving yourself, forgiving those who have unintentionally harmed you, and even forgiving those who have gone out of their way to cause you harm.

Sah's undeniable charisma and beautiful heart & spirit make him a rising star in the world of empowerment spirituality - he’s amazing, such a big Sah fan.

133. Dr. Wendy Osefo from Housewives of Potomac: "Don't Let Others Tell You Who You Are"
3352

Feel like you've lost your identity?

You're not alone. Dr. Wendy Osefo can relate, and as she's navigated the waters of press for her inaugural season of The Real Housewives of Potomac, she's learned the importance of "not letting others tell HER who she is."

Dr. Wendy's already impressive career includes on camera political commentary, community activism, and a well-respected tenure teaching at the collegiate level, but her deep dive into the world of Bravo housewives has tested her in ways she never expected.

I admire her STRONG sense of self she's held onto even amidst criticism. 

Wendy gives us a TON of great takeaway as she discusses strategies she's used to hold onto her identity. SO IMPORTANT!See a side of Wendy you never knew, and share this with a friend that you KNOW is obsessed with the Housewives!

132. Reversing Type 2 Diabetes: Everything Mainstream Science Gets Wrong
4931

Did you know that the CDC has officially declared #diabetes a pandemic in the USA?  NYT Bestselling authors Robby Barbaro and Cyrus Khambatta are Type 1 themselves, and after years of frustration on the diabetes roller coaster, they took matters into their own hands.

To their shock, most of what they'd been told by doctors and "experts" was abjectly wrong. The high fat, low carb diet you've been told about is actually encouraging insulin resistance in your body, and insulin resistance is one of the primary enemies in the diabetes struggle.  Once they discovered that they changed EVERYTHING.

Now, they encourage a high carb, low fat diet, based on plants and whole foods, and they teach their "@MasteringDiabetes" method to thousands,  and have produced astounding results in shockingly short amounts of time.

I KNOW you know someone who is struggling with diabetes, and this episode could change their life. Share it with them, and make sure to subscribe to #BetterTogether on YouTube and Apple Podcasts for game-changing information every weekday!

131. How To Release Anger w/ Sharon Salzberg
4077

It can be hard enough learning to love ourselves and even our closest confidants, but now, we're being asked to love our enemies!?

For NYT Bestselling Author Sharon Salzberg (@SharonSalzberg), learning to love your enemies is one of the fastest ways to free ourselves from the burden of emotional unwellness, stress, anger, and depression in our own lives. In Sharon's words, hating your enemies just steals your own life force and allows them to "live rent free in your own brain."

To help us get there, Sharon provides beautiful techniques to help release anger, like mindset shifts, meditation, and remembering that anger is like "drinking poison and expecting to it to kill the bad guy."

Sharon's new book Real Change comes out tomorrow, and in the book, she connects the importance of spiritual harmony with activism, and in today's world, there may be no more important message to share.

You've probably heard the term #ConsciousUncoupling, but you may be surprised to learn the author who coined the term does not advocate for divorce.  Instead, @KatherineWoodwardThomas, bestselling author and relationship thought leader, believes that we need to heal our traumas and discover our best self before we're capable of fostering a beautiful relationship.  

Do you believe you're worthy of love? Do you believe you're worthy to GIVE love? Katherine will help you through these questions with practical techniques like #Visioning your future with 3 simple questions, and employing "best future self" exercises to turn your life around, faster than you could have ever imagined.  

Katherine is a BEAUTIFUL storyteller, and I got very emotional during our lovely chat.

129. Proven Techniques To Increase Willpower w/ Dr. Kelly McGonigal
4113

You've probably been told by many smart people that stress is harmful for your body, but get ready to have your mind blown. Studies show that the BELIEF that stress is harmful is far more toxic than the actual stress itself.

Dr. Kelly McGonigal will fundamentally change your entire relationship to stress through her incredible teachings. She's grown a massive following (including O Magazine's FIRST Visionary Award), because of her powerful advocacy of MINDSET shifts around stress.

Kelly says that stress is simply:  "what arises in your brain and in your body when something that you care about is at stake." By ingraining this belief system into our everyday life, we'll create new neural pathways that will actually create a "biology of courage" in our bodies when we face stressful moments.

And don't even get me STARTED on Kelly's research on movement and exercise. She highlights new studies that show us that our muscles are our own pharmacies that produce natural anti-depressants when we exercise. Talk about inspiring!

I know this episode can change lives, and I'd LOVE for you to share it with someone who needs this message. Check out the full show on YouTube, and make sure you subscribe when you land there!

127. Protect Your Mental Health During Covid With Dr. Daniel Amen
3858

Covid got you down? Most Americans are lonelier and more depressed than they've EVER been. You may be one of them, but you don't have to be, we have some solutions for you.

In his return to our show, Dr. Daniel Amen, whom the Washington Post called "the most popular psychiatrist in America," acknowledges a surge in his suicidal clientele, but he is not giving up hope. By offering simple, everyday strategies like Havening or, even habitually saying to ourselves, "today is going to be a great day," we can create noticeable shifts in our everyday life. Dr. Amen discusses the "dragons" that breathe fire into our past traumas, and how we can fight those dragons to find peace, even though we're facing the most challenging chapter of our current century

.Dr. Amen also gives a list of amazing natural remedies for depression like Omega-3, saffron, and lavender, which studies have proven can act as natural anti-depressants. 

Trust me, we understand how hard it is right now, but there is hope!

But first, we cover our AMAZING Good News Movement story, courtesy of the IG @Goodnews_Movement.

I didn't think I could love the always hilarious @NikkiGlaser more, but after my amazing conversation with her today, I do.

I was thrilled to experience a different side of Nikki, where she opened up about everything from considering a permanent move to St. Louis, to her relationship with herself and it affecting other relationships. We talked stand-up, hosting @jimmykimmellive in quarantine, dating, and I prescribed her some Better Together episodes she has to listen to.

As a fellow type-A in this business, we connected on a LOT of levels. How do we strike that perfect balance between work, love, and happiness? Are we entitled to saying no when presented with huge opportunities?

I applaud Nikki's openness and vulnerability here, and I'm grateful for the laughs that came along the way!

You won't believe this: women undergo a 25% variation in their brain chemistry across their monthly cycle!

Understanding this variation is an essential part of your Infradian Rhythm, a term coined and popularized by bestselling female health advocate @Alisa.Vitti of @FLOLiving. For decades, all of the popular biohacking programs around diet and exercise have been engineered for a Circadian rhythm, which completely eliminates women from the equation! Once Alissa took her Infradian clock into her own hands, she shed 60 pounds, cured her insomniac, and eliminated a bout of cystic acne that covered her entire body.

Now, you can do the same thing by optimizing each day of cycle, and changing what you eat, how you diet, and when you sleep. Alissa offers invaluable tools and takeaway that will dramatically change the way you live your life.

Feeling like you've hit your rock bottom? 3-Time NYT Bestselling author @GlennonDoyle can relate.

After a severe alcohol addiction, a crippling fight w/ bulimia, and a broken marriage, she's reinvigorated herself with yet another lauded book "UNTAMED" - where she teaches women everywhere including me, how to finally listen to that inner voice and chase the life we actually want to live. There's a reason Oprah Winfrey is producing a scripted film based on her life.

Glennon believes that women are tamed to shrink and disappear, rather than embrace the wild, beautiful lives that live inside each and every one us. Really, her message is simple: "Disappoint as many people as you can to avoid disappointing yourself."

MOVEMENT BREAKS: www.gonoodle.com

List of Take-Aways:

1) Develop a daily routine/schedule.

2) Designate a work space with all needed supplies on hand

3) Build in lots of breaks! Kids need movement and exercise. Play outside (if possible) or go to for kid movement break videos (Go Noodle Linked Above).

4) Create checklists/star charts for short tasks so kids can feel productive.

5) Lots of praise and positive reinforcement. It also really helps to praise effort and perseverance vs. "right" or "wrong" answers. Celebrate mistakes as learning opportunities.

6) Chunk tasks where possible if kids get overwhelmed.

7) Build in time for preferred activities (legos, puzzles, dance, music, etc.)

8) Let kids be as independent as possible-it's okay to let them grapple a bit-they know you are there to support if needed

9) Let the kids teach YOU.

10) Reading for pleasure is a great way to learn! Let kids pick the books they want to read.

11) Don't be afraid to reach out to your child's teacher(s) and school staff for support.

12) Forgiveness and Flexibility: This is an unprecedented time and many families are under a great deal of stress. First and foremost, our kids need to know that they are loved and safe.

13) Kids are amazingly resilient. If they are loved and supported, they will be okay.

47. Meghan Trainor Opens Up Like Never Before
3763

**ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON 03/18/20**

Meghan Trainor is a Grammy-winning pop singer known for  hits like "Lips Are Moving" and "All About That Bass." Today, she opens up like never before talking, VMA’s and why she’s never been, being a boss & learning how to fire people, how the award shows can be rigged and how her husband, Daryl Sabara supports her through it all.

She spent her childhood surrounding herself with music, learning to play various instruments and writing her own songs. As her career began to blossom she began writing music for other artists like Fifth Harmony, Jennifer Lopez, Rascal Flats and Jason Derulo.

There are so many special things about Meghan, but I have a deep respect for the way she has built such a massive platform and stayed healthy while spreading so much love and positivity even in such a demanding industry, and the relationship she has with her family is so amazing.

35. How To Starve Cancer with Jane McLelland
5391

Jane McLelland is a stage IV cancer survivor of 20 years who has made a road map that shows how to starve and kill cancers of many types. Her mission is to turn the oncology profession upside down. Since her remarkable recovery, Jane has been a staunch supporter of ‘off label’ drugs for cancer therapy (medicines used for other conditions than their approved licence). Using her medical knowledge and researching heavily, she put together a cancer-starving formula, using natural therapies, exercise and diet.

When she developed a second cancer, leukaemia, the result of chemotherapy and radiotherapy for her first cancer, she knew she only had weeks to live. With nothing to lose, she put together a unique cocktail of old drugs. To her enormous relief, joy and surprise, her cancer just ‘melted away’.

Her cocktail was more powerful than she had ever hoped.

Today, Maria’s going in depth with Jane about her research, cocktail, and breakthrough information she’s gathered over years of research.

29. Game-Changing Cancer Therapy with Dr. Anahid Jewett
5384

Dr. Anahid Jewett is a woman on a mission to find a cure for cancer. She is a Professor and Director of Tumor Immunology Laboratory and she is also a member of the UCLA Tumor Immunology subgroup, among others. For the past 26 years, Dr. Jewett has dedicated her life to figuring out why cancer stem cells (CSCs) are able to survive in patients. She believes the key is to focus on natural killer cells or NK cells, which are known to kill many different types of CSCs, including oral, pancreatic, lung, breast, glioblastoma, and melanoma tumors. To test whether NK cells could help minimize pancreatic cancer tumors, Dr. Jewett and her team developed a humanized mouse model with an intact human immune system. On this episode, she's discussing the available therapies, what her research is showing, and where we are in finding a cure.

27. Raising Domestic Violence Awareness w/ D.A. Summer Stephan
4431

If you or a loved one is in need of immediate help or support, the national domestic violence hotline is available 24/7 at 1−800−799−7233.

We have two special guests on the show today. Both bringing awareness to domestic violence in their own way. Thanks to Purina, Red Rover Org & the Purple leash project, I was able to sit down with a survivor of domestic abuse named Angie. Her and her dogs are safe now, and I know her strength and story will not only move us, but educate us.

We also have San Diego District Attorney, Summer Stephan who has devoted her life to protecting women, children and families and providing justice to the voiceless and most vulnerable. She is a national leader in the fight against sexual exploitation and human trafficking and was named Southern California District Attorney of the Year by Crime Victims United. Today, she’s providing us the information we need, what to look out for and how to help.

1 in 3 women experience domestic abuse in their lifetimes and shockingly only 10% of domestic violence shelters allow pets and nearly half of all victims delay leaving because they don't want to leave their pet. This is why Purina and I are taking the lead to help keep domestic abuse victims and their pets together. Purina has committed more than $500,000 through 2022 to RedRover to establish Purple Leash Project grants.

As a digital pioneer and entrepreneur who has trail-blazed the digital beauty industry, Michelle Phan has over 8.9 million subscribers on her youtube channel and her videos have been viewed more than 1 billion times. She’s been featured on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 List for Art & Style and is the creator of Ipsy.

Although Michelle built her massive following from youtube, she stopped creating videos after 10 years of massive success. Leaving the career you built can seem crazy to some, but that's one of the many things that inspires us about Michelle Phan-For Maria it was TV, for Michelle it was YouTube- and we hope others are inspired by Michelle's story and start making decisions on what’s right for them as opposed to what pleases others. Today Maria & Michelle talk about being an entrepreneur, making decisions based on your passions and learning to say no.

Maria met Wendy at this little, organic cafe in Connecticut where she told Maria how listening to our podcast, #BetterTogetherWithMaria helped her to avert major surgeries and to navigate what seemed like a hopeless health crisis.

As this is truly the purpose of our show, Wendy’s journey reminded Maria, and hopefully many of you, of two things: 1. that we are truly BETTER TOGETHER and 2. as Maya Angelou says, ‘when we know better we do better.’ On today’s new episode Wendy, a young woman filled with dreams and light, relays just how she overcame a familiar and threatening health crisis.
