EPISODE #25 // The evolution of time and perspective (Season 1 Finale, Part II)

Picking up where we left off in Episode #24, we go through everything we’ve discussed in Episodes 12 through 23 — self-care, CSA’s and food, intuition, inspiration around food, stress, the divine feminine, yoga, travel, patience, curiosity, and happiness and joy — and how things have either changed completely, evolved, or stayed the same. We also talked a bit about our relationship before we started, and how it has evolved...

EPISODE #24 // Reflecting on the first half of 2017

Betsy Brockett and Emily Levenson of Nourish + Flourish

With two episodes left in Season 1, we thought it would be fun to revisit our earliest episodes. So today, we went through everything we discussed in Episodes 2 through 11 — daily routines, movement vs. exercise, sleep, tarot, the way we eat, books, body image, meditation, guilty pleasures, and our interview with Heather Crosby — and how things have either changed completely, evolved, or stayed the same.  We want to hear from you! What have been your favorite episodes to date?...

EPISODE #23 // How do happiness and joy take shape in your life?

Episode #23 // How do happiness and joy take shape in your life?

Happiness and joy. Words we often use interchangeably that have very different implications in our lives. Words that also happen to be the basis for today’s episode. We start off by asking each other how happiness and joy show up in our lives, move into what happens when they aren’t there, what gets in the way of noticing or feeling those things, and also how we cultivate more of it...

EPISODE #22 // How do you embody the spirit of curiosity?

EPISODE #22 // How do you embody the spirit of curiosity? | nourishandflourish.us

Today we’re talking about curiosity. (Huzzah!) Buzzword or not, there’s a lot that goes into this word. In today’s episode, we define curiosity as being connected to comfort zones, our willingness to try new things, facing fears, and putting ourselves in the position where we are open to growing, learning, and experiencing. We even go so far as to say that curiosity is the keystone for evolving in our lives....

EPISODE #21 // How do you know if patience is a virtue in your life?

EPISODE #21 // How do you know if patience is a virtue in your life?

Patience is a virtue. Or so we’ve all been told. But how often do we actually sit back and think about the role patience plays in our lives or how we cultivate more of it? If you’re anything like us, the answer is probably never. Today’s conversation focuses on how patience shows up in our lives, how we react when things are happening in the time frame that we want them to,...

EPISODE #20 // Where in the world have we been?

EPISODE #20 // Where in the world have we been? | nourishandflourish.us

Where in the world have we been?! That’s right. What magical places have we traveled to and where do we want to go next? For Emily, traveling began at a young age with family trips to Mexico, Canada, and annual road trips to Florida to visit family. For Betsy, traveling came much later in her life and has been an opportunity to celebrate life and explore the world outside of the...

EPISODE #19 // Can yoga really make that much of a difference?

EPISODE #19 // Can yoga really make that much of a difference? | nourishandflourish.us

Have you ever wondered if a regular yoga practice could make a difference in your life? Or if all of the hype around this form of movement is for real? We did, too. Until we began to implement the practice in our own lives and saw what was taking shape for ourselves. Whether you’re looking to move your body more and get stronger, or you’re looking for a more gentle,...

EPISODE #18 // How to honor the divine feminine that lives inside (with Shannon Ledford)

The topic of divine feminine energy has been showing up in our lives time and time again, whether it’s in the form of intuition, creativity, or operating from a place of flow. It’s the impetus behind Emily’s deep dive into yoga. And it’s the place that Betsy lives her life from on a daily basis. So when we came across Shannon Ledford, host and creatrix of the Honor The Feminine Podcast,...

EPISODE #17 // How to cope when stress rears its ugly head.

Episode #17 // How to cope when stress rears its ugly head

Good or bad, stress is something we’ve ALL felt. So why is it that some people seem to be better at navigating it than others? And why do some people seem to fall apart, when other seem to really shine when going through a similar experience? In today’s episode, we’re talking about it all. The good, the bad, and the sometimes ugly aspects of stress and how it impacts our...

EPISODE #16 // How we find and maintain inspiration in the kitchen

A sample of Betsy's food inspiration — a beautiful plum cake | nourishandflourish.com

We’ve spent a fair amount of time on the podcast talking about food — our personal food philosophies, how our health has been transformed through food, the pros and cons of local food, and even our favorite guilty pleasures. One area we hadn’t focused on until today, is where we find and maintain inspiration in the kitchen. We start the conversation with stories around when we first got comfortable with...
