102: Using Predictive Maintenance To Support Active Rest show art 102: Using Predictive Maintenance To Support Active Rest

The Superwoman Code

Today I'm talking about the difference between active rest and passive rest, and why there's a missing piece in the maintenance puzzle of health.    That missing piece? It's the predictive maintenance perspective. Along with reactionary maintenance (a necessity), preventative maintenance (a long-term necessity); predictive maintenance emplores all of us to forward think about our cycles and our seasons, and how we move forward through them.      Let's Be Friends!

A tech platform that takes those searching for Birth Control through a series of questions, before matching you with a health professional to...

Two movement episodes back to back! Last week I had the privilege of talking with Shaina Falcone about how to bring movement back into our lives, and today I am chatting with Fusion Health Spa's Tina Gayle about how to maintain movement when you're in the middle of burnout.  Turns out, lots of low-impact and low-intensity exercise is just what Dr. Ashley ordered!  This joyous conversation is so thoughtful and easy to have, and I promise it will help you maintain movement without making your burnout worse.  You can connect with Tina and Fusion Health Spa on: Let's Be Friends!...

The Superwoman Code

I am SO excited to welcome Shaina Falcone to today’s episode of The Superwoman Code. To call Shaina a fitness instructor would be too simple. She is more than that. She is working to revolutionize the fitness industry by approaching wellness in a way that makes you feel good, period. She knows it’s not about spot-reducing certain parts of your body, and it’s not about counting calories, or even weighing yourself. Today she and I talk about how to bring fitness and movement back into your life after having lost it for a while. Maybe you were focused on your career, maybe you had...

095: Why Hormone Testing Isn't Always The Best show art 095: Why Hormone Testing Isn't Always The Best

The Superwoman Code

I don't particularly like trends where we make women feel like something is wrong with their bodies and then have them spend over $500.00 to test their hormones when they don't need it. There. I said it.  I'm going on a bit of a rant today about when hormone testing should be used, and when it shouldn't be.  You've heard me talk about reference points before in relation to burnout, and it's no different on this front. You have to have the reference points first and then you add the testing in to help you determine the last piece of the puzzle, not the first. . Looks like it's...

The Superwoman Code

Welcome to the world of Productivity Hangovers. You know, those days where you accomplish a virtual crap-ton of stuff, only to wake up the next morning feeling like crap?  Yeah.  Those are real.  They're also a sign that you're tipping towards burnout.  Today on the podcast I'm talking about what a productivity hangover is, how to avoid them, and why giving yourself small and consistent tasks each day is better than doing ONE big task a week. Jeff Olsen called this the "Slight Edge" in his book, but I think you'll see how it can help prevent burnout after you listen to...

Women are not small men. 

 

This is a statement that Dr. Mandy Swinden, ND lives by every day. And she doesn't just talk about it with her patients, she lives it in her own life. 

 

On today's podcast, I pick Mandy's brain about working out with your hormones, why your hormones can help you maximize your performance, and what you can be doing to support your recovery when you need it the most. 


About Dr. Mandy

Growing up as a competitive female athlete, I was not concerned about my irregular menstrual cycle, and was actually grateful to not have a period every month. I believed the lie that so many female athletes believe; that having a monthly hormone cycle was a detriment to athletic performance.  As I worked through my education to become a Naturopathic Doctor, I soon realized that this was far from the truth, and this inspired me to dive deep into educating myself about female hormones and our unique physiology.
