121: Your Outside Should Match Your Inside (with Reachel Bagley)
00:42:29
Fashion might not seem of utmost importance right now, but it really is a piece of who you are. Wearing the right clothes can bring more of you to the surface and help you be more YOU! Having been in fashion for over 10 years, our guest Reachel Bagley knows a thing or two (or a hundred) about fashion. Currently, she helps people discover their fashion profile and how to match their inside self to their outside self. Reachel helps people know their body type so they can hone in on the clothes that will work best on their body. In this episode, she teaches how to show respect for ourselves though the clothes we wear. She shares how to go through your closet and pare down your wardrobe to decide what fits and what you love. Bottom line: she emphasizes that clothes aren’t a diary and we don’t need to keep everything from the past. Instead, we should honor where we are in our journey, thus being more intentional about what is in our closet. SPONSOR: Save 10% at shinecosmetics.com with the code BECKY.

113: Cultivating Space — Part 2
00:45:50
Cultivating space does not necessarily mean sitting still in total silence. This is a two-part series and a deeply meaningful conversation about what it means to cultivate space in your life and how doing this can make a huge difference in how you exist and how you FEEL. In this second part, we talk about being curious about your feelings about space and what cultivating space means for you right now. Be sure to listen to Ep. 112 before 113, and enjoy the full conversation on this topic. SHOW NOTES: Check out Essentialism by Greg McKeown here. Feeling “off”? Maybe you’re not off at all. What if you’re actually ON to something? The key to deciding what’s right for you is remembering that it’s very personal + individual … and there are times and seasons. Be open to day-to-day changes. Keep in mind small + attainable goals. Declutter your social media. Have pockets of time without noise. Try intentional reminiscing. Create boundaries for consistent space. Set aside one day a week to cultivate intentional space. Cultivate space in your MIND while your body is on the move. Journaling is one way to create space. Ask yourself the “what if’s” that BH shared at the end of the episode. FOLLOW US ON INSTAGRAM: @BeckyHigginsLLC and @BeckyProudfit. THANKS FOR THE LOVE! Love the podcast?

111: Your Body is the Least Interesting Thing about You (with Lauren Busby)
00:49:55
This is a message that needs to be heard. We’ve been trained by society that how we look is super important. But it’s not. In fact, our guest in this episode says the way we look is the least interesting thing about us. How do we change that narrative? It starts with us making a change in our circles and not spending time talking about our bodies. Lauren Busby is a mom of 4 who used to be obsessed with the gym. She stepped on the scale twice a day. She counted everything she put in her mouth. One day she realized she had a problem! So she made a change. She stopped obsessing about her body so she could do things of utmost importance and help those who truly need her. She felt a call in her heart to help women feel good about themselves by sharing herself in a raw and unfiltered way. She works to be a safe place for women to feel good about themselves by proclaiming body neutrality. After listening to this episode, you will be inspired to make a change in how you view your body and you’ll strive to be satisfied with your body without becoming obsessed.
