Courtney Carver shares her story and how you can simplify to reach your best health.

Episode 476: Simplify for Your Best Health by Courtney Carver of Be More With Less (Simple & Slow Living for a Healthy Lifestyle).

Courtney Carver was stopped in her tracks with a scary MS diagnosis after decades of debt, discontent, and trying to do it all. She had to slow down, prioritize her health, and figure out what was really important in her life. She discovered what mattered most by getting rid of everything that didn’t matter at all. In the end it all came down to love and health.
She went from a busy, overwhelmed advertising director to spending 2-3 hours every morning taking care of herself, loving her work, and being present and engaged with the people she loves. Her family changed, too. They moved from wanting bigger closets, nicer furniture, and more stuff to downsizing into a 750 sq. ft apartment with no storage.
Courtney has written books, courses, and hundreds of articles to help you simplify your life and work so you can focus on what really matters.

A tough, yet motivational & inspirational post from Steve Kamb of Nerd Fitness.

Episode 474: Get the **** Over It by Steve Kamb of Nerd Fitness (Motivation & Healthy Inspiration - No More Mr. Nice Guy).

Steve Kamb started exercising back in high school without really knowing what he was doing. Through high school and college, he made every training mistake known to man and got zero results. It wasn’t until he graduated college and learned the right way to train that he started to see positive changes.
He's a nerd, but likes fitness… so why not combine the two and turn life into one giant video game?
And thus, in the fall of 2009, NerdFitness.com was born!
