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

Ever feel like you don't have enough time to make your mark? Feel like technology (or maybe just other people) are more in control of your life's story than you are? In this solo episode, I talk about my latest "a-has" about making meaning and leaving your legacy - and hopefully, it'll give you some of your own a-ha moments too.

Today's guest is a leading voice in the wellness industry that champions the kind of wellness we should all be striving for: the kind that's got a BACKBONE. Liz Moody is a writer, editor, host of the Healthier Together podcast, recipe developer, and the author of two healthy cookbooks: Healthier Together and Glow Pops. She's a fierce advocate for mental health and emotional intelligence, a fiction enthusiast who encourages you to not only embrace the power of your imagination but also experience stories that AREN'T like your own, and a firm believer that community and connection are at the heart of living a life that's truly lived well.


In this episode we tackle mental health and how anxiety might show up for you, chasing your dreams, nurturing healthy relationships, why community is an integral part of wellness, what it actually means to "live your best life," real vs pseudo inspiration on the internet and beyond, and more.

Last week was about Goodness Overwhelm - this follow-up is about the other end of the spectrum. You can be a pro at shifting your self-talk when life is going pretty well overall. But what happens when the you-know-what hits the fan...and it keeps hitting the fan? What happens when you’re in major need of a WIN, and that win just isn’t coming your way? In this episode, we talk about five powerful strategies to use when life won’t let up.

It’s really easy to talk about being overwhelmed when you’re overwhelmed by hard things – but it’s harder to talk about overwhelm when all things are GOOD.



When left unchecked, our first response to Goodness-Overwhelm can be to complain or self-sabotage to subconsciously “balance things out”  (kind of like how we hold ourselves back when we think we’re only allowed to have one “thing” we’re good at…). You might even feel selfish or guilty about being overwhelmed in the first place. If I can’t handle the good, am I even WORTHY of it?



If you’re feeling overwhelmed, especially if the things making you overwhelmed are GOOD things, here are six simple strategies – three internal, three external – to help you proactively persevere through whatever whirlwind you’re facing.

IN THIS EPISODE, we talk about how Fay's method, The Lucid Body, is really human training disguised as acting training, developing compassion in the face of turmoil and trauma, the "shadow" and working with it, how chakras apply to everyone (actors and otherwise!) way more practically than their woo-woo associations imply, how to forgive and develop compassion and why it's essential, and SO MUCH MORE.

.

.

Fay Simpson is a celebrated and visionary artistic director, acting teacher, and the founder of The Lucid Body. Informed by her 20-year career in dance and theatre, Fay created The Lucid Body as a process of introspection, exertion, and mental challenge which empowers actors to express their fullest potential. She conducts private classes and training workshops for other teachers at her Manhattan studio, The Lucid Body House. She is currently writing the 2nd edition of her book The Lucid Body; A Guide for the Physical Actor which has been hailed as “one of the ten most essential books for the actor.”

.

.

.


An award-winning performer and writer, Fay is currently an Associate Arts Professor in the NYU Tisch Graduate Acting Program, Fay has taught at The Yale School of Drama, The New School, Michael Howard Studios, The Studio/NY, Marymount Manhattan College, and the Actor’s Center. She is also the Artistic Director of the not-for-profit Impact Theatre, which she co-founded in 1990 as a collective of physical theatre artists devising work with a social bite.

Christen is a feminist, an activist, a self-defense instructor, and co-founder of She’s the First, a non-profit that fights gender inequality through education.
.
.
.
She's the First began as a grassroots movement in 2009, and has since grown into a worldwide movement with programs in 21 countries. STF partners with local organizations to support programming for girls, including training and grants for capacity building; the organization also trains students on more than 200 high schools and universities in 10 countries to be gender activists.
.
.
.
Christen has spearheaded change by leading focus groups on uncovering reasons for high drop-out rates in West Africa, creating a framework for understanding community priorities in rural Nepal, and consulting on pregnancy policies in Uganda. Above all else, Christen works to ensure that girls' voices are heard first. 
.
.
.
In this episode, we talk about how to find your change-making sweet spot and direction, the power of providing education, examining privilege and using it for good, misconceptions around how to make an impact (I learned a new word: voluntourism!) and so much more.

Friendship, just like any relationship, is a risk. Will they like me? Will I fit in? And while certain aspects of adulthood make friend-finding more challenging, there's a self-awareness we have as adults that lends itself to some of the most important, fulfilling connections of our lives. That self-awareness can also be our biggest enemy.



In today's episode, we talk about finding female friends that are your SOUL friends, and finding communities in which you feel like you truly BELONG. What holds us back from being in the types of communities and friendships we long for, and how to take steps to create the kinds of bonds that are fulfilling, rich, and real.

Mar 1, 2019

Orthorexia nervosa is a sickly ironic twist on healthy eating, a laugh in the face of nutrition facts. It’s what used to be called an EDNOS: Eating Disorder Not Specified. The term “orthorexia” was coined circa 1997 by a doctor who suffered from the condition himself: there was no name for this condition, therefore there was no research. And since there was no research, it was just deemed a vague, disordered set of habits. Still, 20 years later, the information about Orthorexia out in the world – and by the world, meaning The Internet, of course – is mostly the same words regurgitated over and over. Speculation. Haziness. 




The worst part? Orthorexia is still not recognized by some doctors as a “real” eating disorder.



I mean, what?




Isn’t any form of an eating disorder a “real” eating disorder?

Orthorexia and other EDsNOS don’t always result in extreme weight loss. For me, it did. But even in my healing process, my weight fluctuated up and down – it was never a true indication of whether I’d moved forward or not.





So how do you know that you or a loved one might be on the orthorexic path – or developing disordered eating habits? Here’s some signs you might need to intervene, and some things that worked for me when I was at my all-time low and decided I’d had enough.

This ep should be subtitled "The Conversation That Gave Me A Vulnerability Hangover." And that's exactly why I love talking to Jessica - she's a pro at being kind, inclusive, AND pushing you to examine your beliefs and norms at the same time.



Jessica Murnane is an author, women's health advocate, host of the One Part Podcast, and founder of endometriosis awareness platform Know Your Endo AND One Part Plant, a movement that's all about eating one plant-based meal a day to make a big difference from small changes.



In this episode Jessica and I talk about depression, moving through mental and physical health struggles (especially in our "sharing" culture), her endometriosis advocacy, being an influencer vs having influence, fitting in with the other people in your industry, how the new-age wellness industry can step up their game and how YOU can be a part of that, and - my favorite - making change happen and creating impact out there in the world, FAR from the online space.

People like to say "go with your gut." But what if your gut is totally messed up and hurts all the time? Literally??


Today's guest is one of the smartest, funniest, most insightful people I know in the wellness world. Phoebe
Lapine is a food and health writer, gluten-free chef, wellness expert, culinary instructor, and Hashimoto’s advocate and speaker. On her award-winning blog, Feed Me Phoebe, she shares recipes for healthy comfort food and insights about balanced lifestyle choices beyond what’s on your plate. Named by Women’s Health Magazine as the top nutrition read of 2017, Phoebe’s best-selling debut memoir, The Wellness Project, chronicles her journey with Hashimotos Thyroiditis and how she finally found the middle ground between health and hedonism by making one lifestyle change, one month at a time.


Phoebe is also the host of the new podcast SIBO Made Simple. Having suffered from her own host of gut health issues, Phoebe wanted to take all she learned and share it with those recently diagnosed or chronically fighting Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth - people who are hungry for solutions and wondering WTF to do next. 


This podcast is for you if you fit into one simple category: you want to feel better than you do right now. Plus, Phoebe is funny as hell and her laugh is infectious.

Making mindful goals and setting realistic resolutions isn’t as easy as it seems like it would be…mainly because, much like our self-talk, we’re so used to jumping to the WHATs before exploring the WHYs.






Now, if that sentence sounded a little TOO hippie-dippie woo woo for you, don’t worry: this episode is actually super pragmatic. In our SEASON FOUR premiere, we'll be breaking down some of my most useful exercises and thought-starters to help you design the kind of year you actually WANT to have (instead of relying on a to-do list of goals to throw you around).

BABY ONE MORE TIME is the WANTcast’s take on “Greatest Hits” or “Best Of” episodes: conversations that were so awesome the first time around, we needed to bring them back!

Missed it the first time around? We’re back with a remastered version. Loved it back in the day? Re-listen and re-love it (and maybe pick up on some gems you didn’t hear when we first aired).

Jacki Carr is a goal coach, motivational speaker, and leadership consultant. She has become a highly sought-after pro in her arena who’s helped hundreds of people across the globe not only reach their goals, but actually craft exactly what those goals look like, why they matter, and a path to them that is unique to every single person – personal goals, professional goals, and everything in between.


What I love is that Jacki’s not a life coach, and she’s not a therapist, she’s got a passion for GOAL SETTING and ACHIEVING specifically that just exudes from every single thing she does. I found this episode not just uplifting… but action-inspiring. Listening back on this episode made me reflect on my own goals and visions, and how I can use what I’ve been given to make my own unique impact both personally and professionally. I thought about the stages I’ve been through, and what kinds of changes I might want to make in the future. Hopefully, it’ll do the same for you too.

Abiola Abrams is an award-winning author, advice columnist, motivational speaker, and certified life coach who has given her life-changing advice on networks from MTV and BET to the Discovery Channel and the BBC, as well as being a popular advice columnist for Essence and on sites like Match.com. Her book The Sacred Bombshell Handbook of Self-Love won Best Self-Help Book at the African American Literary Awards. As what she calls the “Midwife for Your Inspired Life,” her online empowerment programs help women to answer and rock their callings, by turning self-love to self-launch. She is the founder of the women’s empowerment blog and web series on SacredBombshell.com and the podcast Spiritpreneur School, aka – yes – The Goddess Factory. (and yes, I know. She’s a master at naming things. Just you wait ’till you listen to the episode)


I LOVE each twist and turn of this conversation, talking everything from what to do when you feel like other people just don’t quite GET what you’re about yet and sticking to your guns when it seems like everyone else is getting ahead, to getting your voice heard even when other people are trying to manipulate it to their liking along the way.
 We also talk about being an extroverted introvert and getting swept up in the bigness of whatever’s going on around you, and whether you’re super extroverted or incredibly introverted, how to stay grounded AND enthusiastic even when life is demanding a lot of you (especially when things are really good and borderline overwhelming, which are the times that can sometimes throw us off the most if you’re anything like me).

Today’s guest is Sarah Britton – author, holistic nutritionist, certified nutritional practitioner, and artist (you’ll hear why later in the podcast) who’s based in Copenhagen Denmark. She is the creative force behind MY NEW ROOTS, an award-winning food blog featuring original recipes that taste great, look beautiful, and boast incredible health benefits (ps, she’s been doing this since 2007 – so she really is the food blogger OG).


In this episode we talk about overcoming obstacles, manifesting things in your life and how important it is to be mindful of what you wish for, how Sarah completely revamped her relationship with food, and three things that ANYONE can do to remove what Sarah calls the fog from your life and wake up FULLY. I’m talking super simple things that don’t involve going to a fancy store, searching for some weird gadget on Amazon, or overhauling your life – these are small tweaks that anybody can make no matter what your lifestyle. Basically, this episode is all about how to realize and actualize how good you’re meant to feel on a day-to-day basis.

*Season Three Finale*


For the final episode of Season Three, it's all about you and YOUR questions. After a quick recap of 2018 and Season Three, we dive into five questions from YOU, the WANT community, having to do with boosting your confidence (especially when you're simultaneously trying/needing to uplift others) achieving your goals while staying charged up and energized, "trusting the timing of life" and releasing control when it's the most frustrating to do so, how to deal with hurtful/toxic social media interactions, and - the big one - why so many of us are SO damn lonely and how to find those friends and communities we crave as adults.


Stay tuned until the end - there's a special announcement about the future of the WANTcast and what 2019 has in store for WANT (hint, it involves you)!


*Thank you so much for everything you give to WANT, and to me, and to each other, on a daily basis. I appreciate you and adore you more than I could ever even begin to express. So happy we're in this together. ONWARD!*

-Having multiple career titles (she was an attorney!) and weaving them all together 

-Fighting against beauty standards and a beauty industry that is highly unrealistic (and predominantly white, thin, and privileged)

As a fitness star at the top of her field, Patricia Moreno appeared to have it all, but knew she was both living and selling a lie: preaching that diet and exercise were the keys to true happiness, while inside she was suffering under a heavy spell of shame and unworthiness. She knew there was more to life, and made it her mission to find the answer and break that spell for everyone suffering the same as her.

After adventures that took her around the world studying, meditating and practicing with gurus and scholars, Patricia created the intenSati Method and began to reshape the fitness industry, and the lives of tens of thousands from the inside-out. Today she's speaking up and calling out the very methods and mindset that she used to be a part of. She is on a mission tear down the body-shaming self-objectifying thin-ideal norms, and show what self love in action truly looks and feels like.

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, powerhouse, and "Spiritual Fitness" pioneer she is today. You're not going to want to miss a beat.

You've probably heard "Talk to yourself like you'd talk to someone you love" as foolproof advice to shift your negative self-talk. Easy, right?

But if this is the way to a healthier internal dialogue...then why doesn't it work? Why it it so hard to talk lovingly to ourselves like we'd talk lovingly to someone we care a great deal about?

Here's why: it's hard because we're not talking to people this way.

This episode is all about why "would you say that to a friend?!" is half-baked advice, and how to really practice shifting the script instead.

Tricia Huffman's been in the business of real-deal feel-good since way before social media was a thing. And here's what I love most about her: she's all about the rogue affirmations. Most people in the feel-good biz will shower their people with "You Are Beautiful"s and "Abundance Is Yours"s and say see ya. But Tricia? She digs deeper.

Tricia Huffman, aka Your Joyologist, is on a mission to inspire you to truly live YOUR life and love yourself through all the ups and downs and curve balls life throws us.  While living out her first dream as touring sound engineer she saw that everyone, including the people we think “have it all” don’t feel fulfilled.  So she first created her Joyology to keep artists healthy, ground and inspired in body and mind while on tour.  She got off the road to make space to become a mother and create her affirmation based product line. She is now a mom of two little girls and works with everyone from Grammy Award winning artists to stay at home moms, to become and commit to the person they know they are capable of being deep down and keep them in integrity with who they want to be in the world, for themselves, and for their families. 


While this coversation starts with a little bit of a venting session on both our parts, I decided to keep it in because I think it's a GREAT example of productive venting, which is quite different from aimless complaining.
Bitching about social media is becoming a "thing" ON social media (lol, the irony), however a lot of what I read simply talks about how annoying and tiring it all is...and places blame on everyone else for the rules we're supposed to follow.


But really...who tells us we are "supposed" to follow them? Nope, no one but ourselves. Which leads me to my absolute FAVORITE part of this interview with Tricia: where we dive in and dig deep about how to distance ourselves from our need for validation, and how to take accountability and responsibility even when we feel something is entirely someone else's fault. Tricia knows how it feels to be resistant, and she knows what it means to OWN YOUR AWESOME. But she didn't get there without getting real with herself and examining what was actually getting in her way.

Take a listen and let me know what you think!

***we do use a good deal of salty language in this episode***

In this episode of the WANTcast, one of our listeners asked to hear about how to make (and keep!) life goals that are realistic and are actually right for you, not just what looks or sounds good or "right."

What's right for one person isn't necessarily right for another - and what's unrealistic to one person might be more attainable for you than you think.

Some questions to ask yourself, some red flags to look out for, how to figure out goals that work for you, and yes - how to actually go about ACHIEVING them (no bs here, folks).

Wanna get a book published, but nervous you might not have what it takes? Wanna save the planet, but too busy shaming yourself because you don't know if you even recycle the "right way?" Ashlee Piper's got you covered.

Ashlee is an eco-lifestyle journalist, TV personality, and author of the new sustainable living book, Give A Sh*t: Do Good. Live Better. Save the Planet. Her work has been featured in and she's a regular contributor for Glamour, Refinery29, The Washington Post, NBC, FOX, and more. 

In this episode, Ashlee breaks down ALL the real-deal step-by-steps of getting a book published by a major publishing house (yep, even if you don't have "connections" or tens of thousands of followers), how an idea can evolve over time to become what it's actually meant to be (everyone needs a first draft in life!), and how we can all do our part, no matter WHAT our life looks like, to give a sh*t and save the world - literally.

It's Friday, and it's time for some THINKING OUT LOUD. If you're new here, our THINKING OUT LOUD episodes are very loosely structured solo episides of me riffing off of whatever thoughts are on my mind lately.

I often pair them with an Instagram post so you can follow along easy-peasy. Here's the one that goes with today's episode.

On deck for today:

- The difference between following inspiration and following an aesthetic

- Being a tourist in your own city and what kinds of life lessons that brings up

- Being a good person vs making sure a lot of people THINK you’re a good person

- Body pride + mental well-being

...and SO much more.
