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. 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 actionable steps to shift your narrative from reactive to proactive (as well as inspiration to keep going when the going gets tough). You can't change the world until you change YOUR world, first - and shifting your self-talk is where it all begins. The goal isn't to change who you are - it's to BECOME who you know you're meant to be. New episodes every other Tuesday. Get the show notes + more at womenagainstnegativetalk.com

If you only derive joy and purpose from the things you do well — a job, an activity, a relationship — can you really say the joy and purpose is coming from those things?

In this episode, we're talking all about how to determine what you love and why you love it — and why that's so important to get clear on NOW:

  • How to make decisions now to avoid bitterness and resentment later down the line
  • "Strengthening your weaknesses" vs. "making your weaknesses your strengths"
  • Why Katie is opting into doing things right now without the intention of "excellence" 
  • The difference between loving something, loving having done something, and loving having done something WELL
  • Why we actually stick with the things we're good at, even if they don't bring us a sense of fulfillment
  • and more!

Amanda Katz strength vs. weakness post on Instagram

May 3, 2023

"Wellness" is 4.4-trillion-dollar global industry — but in many cases, it's not actually making us more well. In a society that's become increasingly distrustful of conventional medicine, how can we decipher what's fact vs. fiction, steer clear of The Wellness Trap, and reimagine what well-being CAN be?


Today's guest is the phenomenal Christy Harrison, a journalist, registered dietitian, and certified intuitive eating counselor. She’s the author of the brand new book The Wellness Trap: Break Free from Diet Culture, Disinformation, and Dubious Diagnoses and Find Your True Well-Being  and the amazing book Anti-Diet: Reclaim Your Time, Money, Well-Being, and Happiness Through Intuitive Eating. She’s also the producer and host of two podcasts, Rethinking Wellness and Food Psych, which have helped tens of thousands of listeners around the world think critically about diet and wellness culture and develop more peaceful relationships with food. 

Something really important to know: if you’re thinking this is going to be an episode totally bashing wellness — that is NOT what this is. Christy is encouraging us to expand our critical thinking skills and hold multiple truths at once. This is 100% a WANTcast episode for people who are wellness devotees, for people who can't stand (or at least are super skeptical of) what’s become of the wellness world, and for all the people in the middle. If you listen to one pod this week, make it this one.

IN THIS EPISODE WE TALK ABOUT:

  • The difference between misinformation, disinformation, and malinformation
  • How social media's algorithms can lead you down more extreme, risky paths without even intending to
  • Why the wellness industry is so enticing and, at times, can seem way more "trustworthy" to us (even if that's not always the case) 
  • How to intentionally and mindfully make space for wellness practices and alternatives you love and find useful
  • How to determine what's helpful, what's harmful, and what deserves a second look
  • What to say to a friend who might have fallen down a dangerous rabbit hole
  • How you can reinvision what "living well" actually means
  • and SO MUCH MORE.


ABOUT THE WELLNESS TRAP:

The Wellness Trap delves into the persistent, systemic problems with that industry, offering insight into its troubling pattern of cultural appropriation and its destructive views on mental health, and shedding light on how a growing distrust of conventional medicine has led ordinary people to turn their backs on science. Weaving together history, memoir, reporting, and practical advice, Harrison illuminates the harms of wellness culture while re-imagining our society’s relationship with well-being.
