It’s that time of the year! It’s just after Christmas, so I figured this episode would be perfect to focus on — and explore — some new ideas moving into the new year.

 

Every year, I pick a word that is going to summarize my intention for the following year. In 2018, my word was growth, and as I reflect back on this year I realize we created so many new initiatives that are about growth — not just growing now, but into the future. We truly were able to live up to the intention that I set. Going into 2019, I decided to set my intentions on a new word: momentum. Momentum is something that I find incredibly powerful and important in both health and in business and is crucial in continuing to drive that growth we created in 2018.

 

So, in this episode, I’m taking you through my list of things that I will be taking with me into the new year to maximize my momentum, as well as the three powerful questions I ask in my practice to help others maximize their potential, as well.

 

Key Takeaways:

[:15] The focus of today’s solo episode: exploring new ideas moving into 2019!

[1:06] Reflecting on my intentions for 2018 and setting my intentions for 2019.

[4:10] The two important questions we need to ask ourselves to ensure momentum.

[5:11] How do we maintain, initiate, or drive momentum in our lives?

[6:51] The first question I ask: what activities do you do that fuel your life?

[8:38] The second question to ask yourself: address the things that suck the life force from you!

[10:09] The secret sauce to driving momentum!

[11:45] My list of the nine things I’m going to change in 2019 to maximize momentum.

[22:14] What are you putting in place to drive momentum in your life? Let’s continue this conversation on Instagram and Facebook!

I always find it fascinating to take a look at what people who are highly evolved in their careers have done — where the commonalities exist for them. I ask about this and observe this in my practice with my patients and I thoroughly enjoy exploring these themes on the podcast. One of the things that I’ve started to observe is the common practice among those who are executing at the highest level: exercise and meditation.

 

It comes as no surprise that I encounter more and more evolved, badass women building incredibly impactful businesses that I’m starting to see that meditation not only rises to the surface — but it becomes the calling for these women, in and of itself.

My guest today, Suze Yalof Schwartz, is the leader of Unplug Meditation. She has a studio, a book, an app, and a really exciting 30-day challenge (that we’re going to explore on today’s podcast)! Most excitingly, she has a story of how she went from being a makeover guru amongst the top fashion magazines to running a studio that completely transforms the way that we think.

 

Suze has incredible insight, not only as an entrepreneur but as someone who has committed to the daily practice of meditation. By the end of this podcast, not only will you leave with tools, you’ll leave with a newfound respect and curiosity of what meditation can do for you in your own life.

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:57] About today’s guest, Suze Yalof Schwartz.

[3:40] Welcoming Suze to the podcast!

[4:27] Suze takes us through her journey and how she has gotten to where she is today.

[6:03] How Suze was launched into her journey of giving meditation a “makeover.”

[10:41] How Suze helps people feel the power of meditation.

[11:47] How Suze gets through to the skeptics of meditation.

[12:43] Suze provides an exercise on how to interrupt stressful thoughts (i.e. the first step to practicing meditation).

[16:18] How much time should people be dedicating to meditation in a day?

[17:46] What is taught at Suze’s Unplug meditation classes.

[20:17] How Suze leverages the power of aromatherapy in her studio.

[22:50] Suze speaks about the journey of creating her app and her recommendations for those wanting to start their own app.

[25:45] Why Suze built the app and about the 30-day meditation challenge.

More About Suze Yalof Schwartz

Suze Yalof Schwartz is the founder and CEO of Unplug Meditation, the world's first drop-in secular meditation studio. She is also the author of Unplug: A Simple Guide To Meditation for Busy Skeptics and Modern Soul Seekers, and the creator of the Unplug Meditation App.

 

In 2012, Suze learned a three-minute meditation that changed her life forever. Prior to this, she was a fashion editor and "makeover guru" working at Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, and Glamour Magazine with regular appearances on GMA, The Today Show, CBS Early Show, and more. Once she discovered meditation, she was determined to keep doing it but she could not find a place to easily learn and practice. After taking hundreds of hours of classes, reading every book possible, and listening to podcasts and lectures from the world’s most famous meditation teachers, Suze realized that meditation needed a makeover and she was the one to do it.

 

Suze’s mission is to make meditation simple, accessible, powerful and interesting enough so that everyone will want to practice it and experience the benefits for themselves.

I connected with today’s guest almost immediately after meeting her. We bonded over the notion of badass women and our capacity to invoke positive change in the world. Diana Lane is a fascinating healer; she’s a stress-reduction specialist, holistic health expert, esoteric healer, and acupuncturist. And what’s so cool about her history and her tools as a healer is that she did not start out this way. Her journey had her starting out on a traditional path, studying pre-med, with ambitions to become a cardiovascular surgeon.

 

Diana’s journey and the influences in her life that caused her to change course, in turn, have caused thousands of people to be impacted from her positive message and her true belief that women have a sacred capacity to contribute. Diana has a lot to say on the subject of who we are as women and our power to influence society because of our innate female skills — so tune in and learn about how you can harness the power of your menstrual cycle and fully tap into your body!

 

Key Takeaways:

[2:50] Welcoming Diana to the podcast.

[3:13] How Diana switched courses from a traditional pre-med path.

[7:14] Diana talks all about her Sacred Cycles Sisterhood tribe and what it’s all about!

[10:47] Diana informs us of how and why should better connect to our menstrual cycle.

[14:47] I share my own menstrual story and experience with endometriosis.

[18:15] What can we expect when we fully tap into our menstrual cycle?

[23:36] Diana explains what PMS for men is (aka preMANstrual syndrome).

[25:36] How Diana helps those who come to her practice manage stress.

[28:53] Finding balance in your cycle and how Diana has re-trained her body.
