EPISODE 045: FINDING YOUR INNER SIMPLICITY WITH JENN PIKE


The guest for today’s interview is a badass, hands down. Jenn Pike is all about helping people find their inner simplicity. Finding the core things that are important to you and making decisions every day that make your life easier and how that impacts — not only your health — but the health of your kids and the people around you.

As most of you already know about me, I get really excited at this notion of health legacy — that the way you live your life has an impact on the people in your immediate surrounding — and this is what Jenn is all about. She’s an accomplished author, speaker, yoga instructor, holistic nutritionist, and she’s a passionate advocate for people moving upstream to find out how to find their true sense of wellness through everyday decisions. Jenn is full of wisdom; she’s one of those speakers that can stand on stage and draw from an inner depth of experience in such a way that you are compelled to take action.

We had an incredible conversation about some of the things we need to do on a daily and hourly basis to find the simplicity in our lives. Join the conversation as we talk about what YOU can do, right now, to initiate simplicity into your life, how to recognize your dopamine triggers, learning to be honest with yourself, and how to dismiss the notion of ‘should.’
