A Healthy Curiosity

Exploring strategies for holistic health, happiness, and personal evolution: what it takes to be well in a busy world. Blending the wisdom of Chinese Medicine, functional medicine, Ayurveda, neuroscience and psychology, you'll get practical tips you can use right away. You know that health and happiness aren’t things you can outsource. You’ve also got a full plate, you're a giver, and making the time to take care of yourself can be challenging. A Healthy Curiosity is here to support you. Host Brodie Welch, L.Ac., is an expert in Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, a holistic health coach, as well as a teacher and practitioner of qi gong, meditation, yoga, lifestyle and diet counseling who tries to walk her talk about health and mindfulness as a recovering Type-A, parent, and business owner. You'll find interviews with fellow experts in Chinese Medicine and natural health care about the conditions we treat and strategies we use clinically; simple self-care tips to help you feel calm, centered, and energized; and personal chats where we explore what gets in the way of our best intentions: perfectionism, big goals, habits and routines, chronic pain, overwork and overwhelm, boundaries, limiting beliefs — and what it takes to overcome such obstacles mindfully. While not strictly an acupuncture / Chinese Medicine podcast, it's not "not" an acupuncture podcast.

Brodie talks with her sister, Sam, about being well in a busy world. Covering topics the likes of perfectionism, procrastination, self-care, self-compassion and the inner critic, and the challenges to making progress on bigger goals while dealing with the demands of daily life.  

 

In this wide-ranging conversation, we explore: 

  • How a completely checked-off to-do list doesn’t necessarily move us forward on the stuff that matters.  
  • Daily self-care habits 
  • Feeling selfish to want to be creative for a living 
  • Perfectionism and Imposter Syndrome 
  • Procrastination masquerading as productive work 
  • The problem with Facebook 
  • Stress is a health issue 
  • Two kinds of goals: Big and SMART 
  • Cycles of Change in Chinese Medicine 
  • Aging is when we don’t think we can change anymore 
  • Good Orderly Direction 
  • Procrastination as Fear of the Bigger Goals 
  • Self-compassion  
  • Making it non-negotiable 
  • Jeremy’s worst fear 
  • Needing support
