199: How to Simplify Your Running LifeSTYLE

Courtney Carver (12_28_2017)

Top soulful living blogger who believes in living through an abundance of less, Courtney Carver—who has been featured in O, The Oprah Magazine and Real Simple, to name a few—shares how a Multiple Sclerosis (MS) diagnosis contributed to radical changes in her career and lifestyle. One of my coaching clients and fellow runner, Alice Jovy, guest co-hosts this episode and shares some top takeaways as well.

We discuss the following:

  • How Courtney isn’t a runner and how she has tried in the past
  • Why you don’t need to run every day to consider yourself a runner
  • Her warning signs of life going too fast and how it may have contributed to her MS
  • What she has gained by giving things up
  • One of the practices she had that showed that she was living in the fast lane and how the speed wasn’t one that matched the way she wanted to live her life
  • How she plays around with her nutrition
  • Project 333
  • Her top Values in Action (VIA) and how they show up in her professional and personal life
  • What fika is and how she has applied it in her life
  • The difference in how mainland Europeans, the British, and Americans live

Serena and I continue talking about minimalism and how to apply it nutrition wise.

We discuss the following:

  • How we both love teaching
  • Best bets when it comes to nutrition
  • Why grains don’t give much nutrition—even quinoa
  • Why to look at food for what’s it’s giving you, rather than just looking at the number of carbohydrates and/or vitamin counts

‘Tis the season for family, friends, food, and fun. It’s also a time to get in touch with what fuels you and what doesn’t. If you’re looking for a coach to help you create a flourishing life, we could be a good fit. I’m now forming Flourishing Coaching and Accountability Groups.
