The Benefits of Being Moody and All the Reasons to Love Your Anxieties with Liz Moody

This week Liz Moody is joining us to dive even more into the topic of adventure! Liz is an author, podcast host, and adventurer extraordinaire! Her two healthy cookbooks, Healthier Together and Glow Pops, feature recipes full of whole, real foods and nutrient-dense superfoods. Her hit wellness podcast (also titled Healthier Together) features intimate conversations with some of the biggest names in the wellness industry — including Sophie, who was just featured a couple of months ago in May! She’s also a contributing food editor for mindbodygreen, and has been featured in goop, Glamour, Vogue, Women’s Health, and much more.

We go everywhere in this podcast with Liz today — food, travel, sex, anxiety, challenging your growth edges, getting comfortable with being uncomfortable, and everything in between. Liz shares her journey with anxiety, how she has come to embrace all sides of herself, and what it was like to grow up with parents who were both psychologists! She also shares practical tips in this episode, including tips for anxiety management, how to begin becoming comfortable with being uncomfortable, and how to manage your travel-related anxieties and challenge your growth edges.
