If you’re so exhausted and overwhelmed by your status quo that you can’t even figure out a way to add GOOD things into your life, you need this weekly podcast. Hosts Betsy & Warren Talbot know how to remove what's not working so you can have more of what you love.

Before we left to follow our dream and travel the world, we were not in our best shape. Far from it, in fact. This is one area we both wish we had focused on more leading up to creating our best lives.

Today we're sharing the challenges that being out of shape can have as you move towards your best life. Plus, we share actionable steps you can take to gain back the energy in your life to go after what you want most.

Reaching your dream is meaningless if you aren't healthy enough to enjoy it, or if you can't enjoy it for long.

This is the 11th step of the 12-Step plan we call, The Best is Yet to Come.

How Fitness Saved Me from Depression and Suicide (Episode #89 with Amy Clover)

What do you do with your stress and anxiety? We used to mash it down into a little ball that grew less manageable over time. It wasn't until we started daily walking and hiking in our 40s that we realized the mind-body benefit that comes from sweating it out. Today we're talking to a woman who found exercise more than a stress-buster; it actually saved her life.

Our guest today, Amy Clover, has battled clinical depression and anxiety all her adult life. After a near suicide and treatment, she turned to exercise to become Strong Inside Out. Besides her work on suicide prevention around the US, Amy teaches people with anxiety and depression how exercise can improve their lives and ease their symptoms. Find out more at StrongInsideOutBootcamp.com.

We are currently in the midst of our own 5 week, 509km (300 mile) walk along the Turkish coast and are enjoying the peace and comfort that comes from getting away and enjoying being close to nature. Today we're talking about the benefits of taking a nice long walk…one that takes weeks instead of hours. 

Long walks give us the opportunity to reconnect both with each other, as well as ourselves. We can walk for hours a day talking, thinking, and imagining the future. In our last walk we made some crazy plans (more on that in the podcast) and looking forward to what comes out of this adventure.

We are delighted to talk with Hillary Augustine in this episode. She has been called an innovator, poet, wordsmith, cultural engineer, and financial energizer. She works with innovators and cultural creatives to excavate stuck places and mobilize people towards wholeness and internal financial resonance.
