Best of: The Lavendaire Lifestyle Podcast
The Lavendaire Lifestyle Podcast is on hiatus! In the meantime, I wanted to share the top interviews from all four seasons of the show. You all loved these guests and I loved learning from from them and getting to know them on the podcast.
Have a re-listen of the episodes below or listen in if you're new! If you want to chat about any episode, we have the Lavendaire Lifestyle Community on Facebook for you.
We'll be back with season 5 in a few months!
I first learned about Ayurveda (India's ancient healing system) from Sahara Rose, a certified Ayurvedic Nutritionist & author of the Idiot's Guide to Ayurveda.
It's all about understanding and nourishing your mind-body type AKA your “dosha”. My Vata dosha is airy, perfectly suited to my creative and expressive personality ☁️
The interview of my dreams: Ever since reading “Light is the New Black”, I knew I had to have author Rebecca Campbell on the podcast.
Her work is soulful, enlightening, and full of life-changing wisdom. We talked about listening to your intuition, actually living a life that makes you feel ALIVE, and what to do when you're disconnected from your inner light.
Every day, I'm inspired to connect with my own light and help you shine yours ✨
If only we could make everyone happy without draining ourselves, right? 😥It's tough, to live for yourself without that guilty, nagging feeling that you're letting someone else down.
Amy E. Smith is a *confidence* coach, which makes all the difference. Instead of trying to deal with other people, she shares how to build yourself up instead – to have the confidence in yourself to live your authentic life.
(Even if it means others a little disappointed. They'll get over it, but YOU won't get over not living your life to the fullest!)
We all know shiny & pretty on the outside doesn't always mean perfection on the inside. Just like a diamond, sometimes you need to work through the dark & messy to get to the treasure at the center: the true YOU.
Veronica Krestow is a transformational coach who founded The Diamond Process: a guide to living bright and brilliant, in a way that feels authentic (and not like you're putting on a show).
You all know I love decluttering and tidying (especially if you found me through my Konmari videos!), but simplifying your life can go deeper than just the material ‘stuff'.
You can simplify your life so that you only live aligned to your values. When you know what's important to you, it's easier to keep out clutter in all forms: unhealthy relationships, bad habits, and of course – actual stuff. Doesn't that sound like a relief?
If this guest looks familiar, it's because she was on the podcast twice! This is Andrea Owen's first interview on the show, talking about:
- Feeling like you're at rock bottom
- How to deal with your self-destructive habits
- Numbing vs. feeling: What's the better way to deal with your emotions?
Sometimes our minds take us to a dark place. It happens to all of us, but it also weighs heavier on some people than others. I wanted to talk to someone with a unique take on what it means to be mentally healthy.
Shannen Roberts calls “mental illness” by a different, more compassionate name: “mind obstacles”. Isn't that what we need more of – compassion? Shannen created a community of compassion through The Strange is Beautiful: a resource for alternative self-help.
Have you ever avoided looking at your bank account out of fear of what you'll see (or not see 😅)? I feel you.
Still, I bet you know that the first step to managing your money is being more aware of it: where it's coming from, where it's going, where it “should” go, and of course – How much is left?
Jesse Mecham had a goldmine of tips and mindset shifts related to everything finance: budgeting for beginners, how to stop living paycheck to paycheck, and detaching your emotions from money.
I'm guilty of it, and I'm sure you are too. I talked to daily life designer Katie Lee about how we can break free “busy”: We can live lives that are fulfilling and successful by our own definitions, without the hustle and bustle of the “busy trap”.
“Busy” has lost its meaning. It seems like everyone is busy, by default. When you meet up with someone you haven't seen in a while and ask how they've been, chances are they'll say, “I'm good, been keeping busy,” or “Not so good, bit busy lately.”
“How you live your everyday life is how you live your whole life.” Do you want your whole life to be busy?
How much do you really know about yourself?
