WANTcast: The Women Against Negative Talk Podcast

Welcome to the WANTcast: The Women Against Talk Podcast -lessons in moving forward fearlessly and spreading the (good) word. In each episode, writer, speaker, coach and WANT founder Katie Horwitch unpacks tips, tools, motivation and inspiration to help you shift your self-talk, the internal narrative you have on loop 24/7 that tells you who you are and who you should be. You can't change the world until you change YOUR world, first - and shifting your self-talk is where it all begins. Dive into topics such as confidence, fear, trust, body image, self-doubt, self-worth, relationships, career, friendships, social issues, and more - and walk away from each episode with hyper-actionable steps to shift your narrative from reactive to proactive (as well as inspiration to keep going when the going gets tough). The goal isn't to change who you are - it's to BECOME who you know you're meant to be. Get the show notes + more at womenagainstnegativetalk.com

A negative self-talk loop is when the demeaning and degrading story we tell ourselves about ourselves or our life not only plays on repeat in our brain, but leads to even more demeaning and degrading thoughts. And since negative self-talk thrives off of uncertainty, it makes complete sense that it’s been having a field day for so many of us in so many ways throughout 2020 in particular.

 

If the self-talk coming up for you right now is along the lines of: "I’m exhausted. I’m doing everything I can and it’s just not cutting it. I'm so behind. I can't believe I’m still HERE. If I only had ______, this wouldn’t be so hard."...then this episode is for you.

Burnout and overwhelm are timeless and can show up any time, anywhere, around anything. Kelsey Patel is one of Hollywood’s leading wellness and reiki experts, as well as newly published author of Burning Bright: Rituals, Reiki, and Self-Care to Heal Burnout, Anxiety, and Stress. She is not only a sought-after spiritual empowerment coach, yoga teacher, reiki healer and meditation teacher, but also a multi-faceted entrepreneur and inspirational speaker. She is the creator and founder of Magik Vibes, a soul-enhancing lifestyle brand, which is also the name of her wellness-meets-spirituality podcast. Patel is an expert on burnout and conscious capitalism, facilitating workshops and giving keynote addresses for organizations such as Free People, Aerie, GOOP, and more.

Kelsey’s first book, Burning Bright is a path out of pain, anxiety, burnout, and overwhelm, and shows you the tools you already possess to heal through unique rituals, reiki, and self-care practices.

 

This episode was recorded a few months back, specifically to address coronavirus-related burnout and overwhelm, and how to transition from what we've been calling the 'For-Now Normal' to what will eventually be our new normal. Kelsey shares so many ACCESSIBLE tools we can use to, as the artist Bansky once said, “Learn to REST, not QUIT.” Listen for more on this in the episode's intro.

 

Additional listening centered specifically around burnout while doing anti-racism work, and leaning into wellness as a person of color:

How does your self-talk hold you back from taking action in your life? How does that affect the world around you? In this episode, we talk about why shifting your self-talk is way more than just about self-help, why it isn’t just about changing your OWN life, and how to get yourself off of the sidelines and 'into the arena.'

You know to call someone when you miss them. But what if what you miss isn’t a person that's able to be dialed on the phone - or an event that's about to be rescheduled? What do you do when it's the smaller or less-specific things you miss, like sitting outside with a cup of coffee or going on a vacation (*any* vacation)?

In this episode of the WANTcast, we discuss the concept of what Katie calls experiential longing: the feeling of missing experiences, routines, habits, and situations.

Leadership consultant, attorney, speaker, author and photographer Karen Walrond is the kind of person you just want to know. You just want to soak in some of her light and magic, because maybe, JUST MAYBE, you can use it to help make your own. As someone who has worked extensively with Dove Real Beauty and Brene Brown, Karen is in the business of helping you shine your unique light, no matter WHAT the world throws at you or tells you you need to be.

In this episode we talk about grief and the "phases we go through when bad things happen," holding space for each other in a way that feels true, the intersection of JOY and ACTIVISM, how Karen uses her practice of Positive Psychology to cultivate resilience within her clients and her self, and how to gracefully "not know."

“Empowerment” is trending, but somehow we’re still here telling our negative self talk it can go F off. Calling your critical inner voice a mean name might work for some people - but it's never worked for me.

Here's why this tactic doesn't work for so many of us...and some ways (15, to be exact) you can reframe your negative self-talk when you start to spiral.

Patricia Moreno is the trailblazing founder of spiritual fitness, leading a conversation about living a full potential life and the importance of each and every one of us making a vow to wake up and be a positive and effective part of the raising of the consciousness of the planet.

After years of training and studying with personal optimization experts, mindset scholars and spiritual teachers, Patricia Moreno created her own practices to integrate spiritual fitness into the lives of hundreds of thousands worldwide. Before anyone was saying affirmations on a spin bike, Patricia Moreno was pairing mindfulness with physicality with intenSati, her signature movement method that has been packing classes and changing lives for over 15 years.

In this episode, we talk about Patricia's journey from a girl whose parents put her on a diet at eight years old, to the thought leader and powerhouse she is today. We talk about fat-phobia, and the way our culture (and the fitness industry!) keeps us limiting ourselves without us even KNOWING. We talk about keeping secrets and hitting rock bottom when it looks like you're at the top. We talk about how to achieve the changes you're after, and how physicality is only part of making those changes. We talk about where we are, where we've been, and where we MUST go if we want to move forward fearlessly in our lives. (This is a rebroadcast of one of our favorite WANTcast interviews of all-time from 2018.)

The words we choose to describe the time we’re in *matter.* Saying that this is our “New Normal” implies that the Now is the Forever…which it’s definitely not.

Making friends as an adult is hard. And keeping those friendships strong when life gets in the way? Even harder.

Life is always going to keep handing you (or your friend) full schedules. Geography and time zones – or sleep schedules – won’t always be on your side. The world will throw you curveballs you NEED to answer to, whether you like it or not. Here’s how to stay connected when life gets in the way...however it is that life gets in the way.

Over the last couple weeks, I’ve been asked many times what I “think of all this,” how people can take care of themselves during the Coronavirus pandemic, and what my general take is on living day-to-day life when it looks and feels anything but normal. Instead of posting a million times to Instagram or spreading my responses out over emails, texts, DMs, and social media updates, I figured it might be useful for you if I recorded this – for the sponges who need help with sponging, for the people who are struggling finding normalcy and motivation at home, and everyone who’s dealing with a little bit of everything.

We’ve all heard the cliché that “you need to love yourself before you can love others.” But that's only half the story.

 

It's time to reclaim the word “single” and redefining it not as something negative or lacking, but as a state-of-mind you carry with you, whether you’re in a relationship or not.

It's the most-used WANT exercise for a reason: it's unexpected but it WORKS. Going through a major life transition, had a stressful month, or just wanting to take preventative measures to ensure you don't have a *complete* meltdown when it all eventually feels like too much? You might be in need of a Planned Freak-Out.

In this episode we'll talk about the origin story of the PFO, why it's so different than any other goal-setting or self-reflection exercise you've done, and we'll break down how to set yourself up for success in your own structured breakdown.

Doesn’t it sound sexy to say what you’re “leaving behind” in the new year? To make a list of what you’re going to stop doing in 2020? But it’s not that simple. 80% of us fall short on our goals in just a few weeks and use that hiccup to completely lose momentum.

In this episode, we'll dive into two simple but deceptively impactful exercises to do at the start of the new decade: one to help you reflect on how far you've come (and make peace with former aspects of yourself you might be ashamed of), and one to help usher you into a brand new year (or ten).
