This was an episode guest dream-come-true! I can’t even tell you how excited I was to sit down with the lovely Georgie Morley host of The Chasing Joy Podcast and the girl behind In It 4 The Long Run Blog. Her podcast has made such a positive impact on my life and was part of the inspiration for this second season of the podcast!
IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS:
- Why doing LESS goes against society’s usual narrative, and why it can also be more challenging to do less
- Shifting our mindset away from measuring our value by how productive we are
- The experience she had that showed her she could do less and still have an enriching growth filled experience
- You don’t need to fill up your schedule in order to actually BE productive
- Georgie shares her recovery story from anorexia and orthorexia
- We talk about pseudo (eating disorder) recovery
- How our emotional health and stress management is more important than specifically what you’re eating
- She underscores that there is no specific “look” required to suffer from and disordered eating
- The reason we binge is only a result of restriction.
- Restriction can be not eating certain food(s) or mentally not allowing yourself to have something. When we mentally and physically stop the restriction we take the power away.
- Learning to trust your body & your body learning to trust you again
- We discuss her blog post “Sorry I Unfollowed You – On Growing And Letting Go“
- Georgie’s writing process and where she finds her inspiration
- Being mindful about the language we use around what we are recommending for others
- Using shame as a marketing tactic
- It’s not about throwing shade on people who perpetuate diet culture, when we know better we can do better. Don’t hate the player hate the game.
- Why ‘resilience’ is her favorite word
