What inspired this episode:

We all have to start somewhere. When I was creating my first episode it was all about taking the leap on something that I wanted to do for the longest time. I was hesitant since I did not have anyone to co-host to do it with me, and I didn't know how I would balance it with school, family drama, trying to step into the adult world by getting an internship and so much was going on as a 20-year-old soon to be 21. I wanted to get real about my mission and why I wanted to create a wellness blog despite the large amount of podcast to exist. To me, it is all about perspective when you create lifestyle content, while wellness has heavy connection to the science, being able to tie in those things with your personal experiences and your observations about the world offers a way for information to be presented in a way that is authentic to you.

Questions I wanted to explore:

  • Why should you start a podcast?

  • What does it mean to " take up space"

  • Why we need to creat communities instead of settling for places we don't fit in?

  • What is the modern college student experience like?

  • Why is it important not to assume what's going on in someone'slife?

  • How can the wellness space be more inclusive?

  • How to stop making excuses for our dreams?

  • Why we need to try thing regardless of the outcome?

  • Why is perspective important?

Episode Description:

We are open for business! While we don't know what we are doing we are starting this little introduction with the concept of taking up space and taking action in your goals with a few scattered thoughts to relate to. The concept of taking up space is something said often in the wellness community but what does it actually mean? Why do people always make it sound so easy? Stay tuned to hear a new perspective of taking up space from a 20-something-year-old, who is working to become her best self just like you.
