      Staying hydrated is crucial for maintaining good health. Mari and Fiona shared their personal struggles with drinking enough water and emphasized the importance of making it a consistent habit. They also suggested adding flavors or electrolytes to make water more enjoyable. Mari's embarrassing story of choking on a piece of pizza served as a reminder of the importance of being present and attentive to one's body's needs. The episode was filled with laughter, shared experiences, and valuable insights on health, wellness, and mindfulness. Overall, the conversation highlighted the importance of self-care, consistency, and finding ways to make healthy habits enjoyable.

    • Navigating Complex RelationshipsFocus on the present, prioritize self-care, avoid comparing relationships, and work on building a healthy and balanced partnership.

      Relationships are complex and require effort from both partners to navigate through past experiences and current challenges. The speaker shares her personal journey of being in a relationship that went through ups and downs, and how she learned the importance of not letting past relationship trauma affect the present and not comparing her relationship to others on social media. She emphasizes the need for balance and self-care in a relationship, and being aware of not catering to the other person's needs at the expense of one's own. The speaker also acknowledges that relationships are personal and unique to each couple, and it's essential to focus on the present and the feelings of love, care, and appreciation in the relationship. Overall, the speaker encourages listeners to embrace the complexities of relationships and work on building a healthy and balanced partnership.

    • Independence in RelationshipsExpress love through small gestures, respect each other's individuality, and don't compare relationships based on social media. Understand love languages and timelines vary, and involve friends and family in acts of love.

      Relationships should allow individuals to continue living their own lives while being there for each other, not being each other's halves. Love languages and expressions of affection vary, and it's essential not to compare relationships based on social media. Small gestures, such as bringing ice cream or a bouquet of flowers, can show love and appreciation. Don't put all the pressure on your partner for acts of love; involve friends and family as well. Lastly, everyone has different timelines for significant life events like having children, and it's essential not to feel pressured by societal expectations.

    • Respecting boundaries in fertility and family planning discussionsBe mindful of others' sensitivity around fertility and family planning. Everyone's journey is personal, so respect boundaries and support each other.

      Everyone's journey with fertility and family planning is personal and sensitive. While some people may find joy in sharing their experiences online, others may find it intrusive or triggering. It's important to be mindful of this and respect each other's boundaries. The speaker in this conversation is currently preparing for pregnancy by focusing on her overall health and wellness, including nutrition and exercise. She looks forward to the challenge of motherhood and the bond she will share with her partner. Additionally, she expressed excitement about the possibility of continuing her active lifestyle, including horseback riding and weightlifting, during pregnancy. Ultimately, the speaker is confident that she will be able to handle the ups and downs of fertility and motherhood with the support of her partner and community.

    • Unique experiences in motherhood and cosmetic proceduresMotherhood brings unique challenges with both genders, and cosmetic procedures require trust in a surgeon and consideration for potential limitations.

      People have different experiences and perspectives when it comes to raising children and undergoing cosmetic procedures. Regarding motherhood, the speaker expresses her uncertainty about whether boys or girls would be easier to raise, acknowledging the existence of a unique bond with both genders. With her breast augmentation, she emphasizes the importance of trusting her surgeon and feeling confident in her decision, even if she couldn't recall specific details about the procedure. She also mentions the potential limitations of using a sauna with breast implants due to the risk of melting or damage from high heat. Overall, the speaker's experiences demonstrate the personal nature of these significant life decisions.

    • Emphasizing individuality and personal growth in health and wellness journeysAcknowledge potential risks, be informed but not pressured, focus on personal growth, and find a balance that works for you in your health and wellness journey.

      Everyone's body and health journey is unique, and it's essential to make informed decisions based on individual needs and circumstances. The speaker, who has openly discussed her experiences with cosmetic procedures like breast implants and Botox, emphasized that she strives to do what's best for her body while acknowledging potential risks. She also highlighted the importance of being aware of information but not feeling pressured to follow every expert's advice. Comparing one's wellness journey to others, including public figures, can lead to unnecessary stress and pressure. The speaker encouraged listeners to focus on their personal growth and finding a balance that works for them. She also emphasized that it's okay not to agree with every expert or trend and that the ultimate goal is to live a healthy and fulfilling life.

    • Working with a coach or mentor for healthier habitsCoaches or mentors can help individuals adopt healthier habits, shift mindset, and find balance in their lifestyle. Embrace self-love and let go of perfectionism for sustainable progress.

      Working with a coach or mentor can help individuals adopt healthier habits and find a more balanced approach to their lifestyle. The speaker in this conversation shares how she has adapted various healthy trends since starting to work with her coach, including drinking more water, getting enough protein, and moving her body daily. She also mentions how she has learned to let go of perfectionism and the need to follow strict regimens to reach her goals. The speaker's mindset shift has allowed her to enjoy her vacation without feeling guilty and to find a balance between working out and relaxing. Additionally, she emphasizes the importance of self-love and not hating oneself into a desired version of oneself. The relationship between the speaker and her coach has evolved from a focus on diets to a more sustainable lifestyle. They have learned from each other, with the coach offering advice and support, and the speaker embracing a more compassionate and balanced approach to her health and well-being.

    • Finding Balance in Health and WellnessFocus on feeling good, not just looking good. Embrace individuality and avoid comparing bodies. Find a sustainable fitness routine and prioritize mental well-being.

      Maintaining a healthy lifestyle should be about feeling good, not just looking good or meeting external expectations. Mari shared her personal experience of finding balance in her fitness routine, which includes weight lifting, Pilates, and focusing on her mental well-being. She emphasized the importance of not comparing bodies or feeling pressured to conform to certain standards. Mari also reflected on how her brand and image have impacted her mental health, acknowledging that in the past, she became overly focused on her physical transformation and struggled with disordered eating patterns. However, she has since shifted her focus to sharing her knowledge about nutrition and the science behind health, which feels more authentic and fulfilling to her. Overall, Mari's message is that everyone's body is unique, and the goal should be to find a healthy lifestyle that feels good and sustainable for each individual.

    • Struggling with obsession over appearance and body imageA restrictive diet and intense training can lead to an unhealthy focus on appearance. Learning to relax and enjoy food, as well as prioritizing vulnerability and relatability, can lead to a healthier mindset and better appearance.

      Having a restrictive and clean eating approach, coupled with intense training, can lead to an unhealthy obsession with appearance and body image. This was the experience of the speaker, who shared how she struggled with this issue in the past. She also mentioned how she learned to relax and enjoy food during a vacation, leading to a better appearance and a shift in priorities. Now, she values vulnerability and relatability over physical appearance in her brand. Additionally, she recently started experimenting with fasting, finding benefits but acknowledging that it's not suitable for everyone, especially during certain phases of the menstrual cycle. Overall, the conversation highlighted the importance of balance and self-acceptance in health and wellness.

    • Manage food intake with time-restricted eatingTime-restricted eating, or intermittent fasting, can help improve eating habits by allowing a designated eating window, potentially leading to less food consumption and better sleep quality.

      Time-restricted eating, also known as intermittent fasting, can help individuals mentally manage their food intake and improve their overall eating habits. This approach allows people to give themselves a sense of freedom during their eating window, potentially leading to less thinking about food and even eating less overall. The timing of the eating window can be adjusted based on personal schedules and lifestyles. Additionally, time-restricted eating can benefit sleep quality by avoiding going to bed on a full stomach. The speaker shared her personal experience with time-restricted eating and how it has helped her feel good and be less snacky. She also clarified that she does not hate vegans and encourages everyone to live their lives in a way that makes them feel their best.

    • Promoting ethical and sustainable food choicesConsider the source and impact of your food, choose healthier, more natural options, and maintain balance in your diet and lifestyle.

      The speaker values ethical and sustainable food production, whether it comes from animals or plants. She acknowledges the complexities of the food industry and its impact on the environment and morals. She encourages being conscious of what we consume and where it comes from, rather than focusing on labels or specific diets. The speaker has personally made changes in her own life by looking at labels and choosing healthier, more natural options. She also emphasizes the importance of balance, especially when it comes to socializing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Overall, the speaker's perspective is about making informed choices and promoting a more mindful approach to food and wellness.

    • Finding Balance in All Areas of LifePersonal experiences show that balance in social activities, health, and intuition leads to overall well-being. Listen to your body, enjoy joyful activities, and connect with others for healing and growth.

      Finding balance in all areas of life, including social activities and health, is crucial for overall well-being. The speaker shared her personal experience of feeling worse after excessive drinking and the importance of eating before consuming alcohol. She emphasized the need to listen to one's intuition and enjoy activities that bring joy, rather than feeling pressured by societal expectations. The speaker also highlighted the importance of connecting with others in the healing process and the benefits of finding balance in work and personal life. She envisions a future of shared experiences and continued growth with her friend, but not as ranch hands, but as ranch friends.

    • Exploring and Connecting with OthersDiscovering new things together brings joy and excitement, while also presenting challenges and unexpected experiences. Staying curious and persistent is key to learning and growing.

      The importance of connection and exploration was a common theme in this conversation. From discussing the goal of having farms next to each other, to sharing tips on chicken coops and at-home health tests, the speakers found joy and excitement in discovering new things together. They also highlighted the challenges and unexpected experiences that come with trying new things, but emphasized the importance of staying curious and persistent. Whether it's through farming, fitness, or health tests, the speakers emphasized the value of learning from one another and the community that comes with shared experiences. Additionally, they touched on the common struggles with health issues and the importance of addressing them through various means, including testing and self-care. Overall, the conversation showcased the power of connection and the value of exploring new things together.

    • Embrace the Challenges of Exercise for a Fulfilling Fitness JourneyMaking exercise enjoyable, taking breaks, and drawing inspiration from the business world can help keep you motivated and committed to your fitness journey.

      Finding enjoyment in exercise and embracing the challenges it brings can lead to a more fulfilling and motivating fitness journey. The speaker shares her experiences with various forms of exercise, including weight training, Pilates, cycling, and soul cycling, emphasizing the importance of making it fun. She also discusses the value of taking breaks and missing the feeling of strength gained through exercise. In terms of motivation, the speaker draws inspiration from the business world, reminding herself that success doesn't come easy and that hardships are a natural part of the process. By focusing on the long-term benefits and trusting in her ability to overcome challenges, she stays motivated and resilient.

    • Cherishing the good momentsEven in challenging times, cherishing positive experiences can provide comfort and strength

      Even when life presents us with challenges and difficult times, it's essential to hold on to the good moments and find happiness in the small things. Remembering that things will eventually return to normal and cherishing the positive experiences can help us get through tough times. Whether it's a perfect moment with loved ones or a simple pleasure like a good meal or a beautiful sunset, these core memories can provide comfort and strength when we need it most. Looking forward, we hope for continued growth and happiness for each other, with milestones like buying a house, getting married, and starting a family. Ultimately, the goal is to be happy and content in our lives, surrounded by love and positivity.

    • Bloom's future dreamsIn the next 5 years, Bloom aims for a family and a home with a lawn, chickens, and possibly a small farm. In 10 years, she envisions a full-blown ranch for a simple life.

      The future holds exciting possibilities for Bloom, both personally and professionally. In the next five years, she hopes to have a family and a beautiful home with a big lawn, chickens, and possibly even a small farm.

    Dublin Live: Cultivating Community with The Happy Pear
    This episode features the audio from a live event I hosted this past summer at Smock Alley Theatre in Dublin with Stephen & David Flynn of The Happy Pear. Long-time listeners will well remember David and Stephen from #RRP 233, one of my most popular episodes of 2016. Since then the lads have made two subsequent appearances on the show in episodes 331 and 380. For those newer to the show, The Happy Pear are the joined-at-the-hip identical twin brothers behind a family run chain of natural food stores and cafés in Ireland as well as a line of organic, locally harvested plant-based food products available across the UK. The face and voice of Ireland's quickly growing healthy food revolution, the twins are omnipresent on social media and the bestselling authors behind a series of runaway smash-hit plant-based cookbooks, including The Happy Pear* (of course), World of the Happy Pear*, and their most recent release, The Happy Pear: Recipes for Happiness*. Today's exchange opens with an extended monologue on the power of decisions by your truly. Extends to embrace the innate power we all possess to change and grow. Pivots to the importance of community. And opens up to audience Q&A on everything from healthy eating habits to how best to catalyze change in others. I talk about the power of decisions. The importance of community. And the fact that we are all capable of positive change – and how to be a beacon to catalyze change in others. This event inspired me to host more live experiences. At home and beyond. If you're in favor me taking the show on the road, I'd love to hear from you. I sincerely hope you enjoy the listen. Peace + Plants, Rich
