Today marks the 100th episode of A Better Life Podcast. And to switch it up, I’ve invited one of my favorite people on the planet, Kit Murray Maloney of O’Actually, to interview me!

Kit did a great job and asked me some awesome questions. Some of the things we cover are:

– The intention behind A Better Life podcast and why it means so much to me

– How you can choose to find breakthroughs even when you feel powerless

– The importance of establishing boundaries when it comes to your time and generosity

– My two-step process for moving away from misery towards courage

– Why you don’t need to ‘save’ people in your life (and why it’s delusional to think you can)

…and a bit more about the power of asking for exactly what you need in the moment, no matter how indulgent it may seem.

This was a fun episode to record, and I’m so grateful for your listening and being a part of A Better Life.

I originally became very interested in learning how to incorporate more exercise into your day when I read how harmful sitting for 8 hours a day is, even if you spend an hour a day at the gym.

Since I learned about that, I’ve done all kinds of things to get in as much movement as possible. I’m proud to say that I now average walking 8 miles a day.

In this post I’m going to share exactly how I do that, plus how you can fit exercise into a packed-to-the-brim schedule.

#1: If you can get a treadmill desk, get one.

#2: Reward yourself with walks.

#3: Pace.
#4: Get a FitBit if you can.

Today's episode is slightly different from my usual podcasts. My guest today, Laura Yamin, is happily employed in a regular 9-5 job and doesn't want to be a full-time entrepreneur.

We talk about:

- How to get paid what you want to get paid (with practical action steps)

- Why you need to be clear about what you want

- How trusting your intuition can help you realize your dreams, no matter how much of a stretch they may seem

- Why job hunting is like "defense dating" and how you can find the cream of the crop

- Why healthy boundaries at work are a must and the key phrase to say in order to successfully set them

- The mindset shift you need to make updating your resume and talking with recruiters fun and empowering tasks

...and a bit more about the importance of learning to say "no" at least 5 times a day.
