She’s a self-proclaimed “Meathead Hippie”, which also happens to be the name of her podcast, and a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, trainer, coach, writer, and creator who realized she could use food and movement to heal from the inside out.

But it wasn’t until she started doing a deep dive into emotional awareness that she found her true self.

And that’s exactly what my guest Emily Schromm comes on the show to talk about in this podcast episode.

This is a topic that’s not often talked about but should be for a number of different reasons.

Many people don’t realize just how connected emotions are to health and especially your mental well-being.

By taking emotional awareness for granted, you could experience negative health outcomes.

And no matter how hard you workout or eat healthy, if you’re missing this key ingredient, you could still find yourself suffering from health ailments.

As Emily mentions in the show, instead of turning to external sources to find the solutions to all of your problems, it pays to turn inward and tap into your feelings.

So how do you do that?

When you tune into this episode, you’ll hear the exact steps to take to start tapping into your emotional awareness, which can greatly improve your life and health, as Emily experienced firsthand.

The good news is that this piece of the puzzle isn’t too difficult to work on, it’s just something most of us don’t spend enough time doing, which is a costly mistake.

If you’re not familiar with Emily, she’s a good friend of mine who has an incredible background in health and fitness.

On top of being a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, personal trainer, and online coach, she recently self-published her book, The Process, which dives into how to do, feel, know, and make without getting in your own way.

Emily shares some strategies from the book and also chats about how to crush self-doubt, when to let go of things that don’t serve you, how to push past your fears, and a number of other topics.

While emotional awareness may not have been on the top of your to-do list before this episode, you’ll quickly learn why it should be and how to easily weave it into your daily life.

Because doing so may just transform your life in ways you couldn’t have imagined.

To see how that’s possible and how to do just that, tune into the episode now to learn more.
