In this episode, my friend Emily Kiloh from Cool Mom 101 is back to talk about glowing up, wellness and parenthood during COVID, and changing our inner dialogue. Emily is also the Canadian Ambassador for Global Wellness Day and shares details about the day.
Join Emily and I to celebrate Global Wellness Day on Saturday, June 13. GWD is hosting a global 24-hour livestream of wellness that will start in New Zealand and end in Hawaii. This never before done virtual broadcast will include influential speakers and expert trainers including Andrew Sealy, founder of Yoga Revealed, and Desiree Watson, CEO of Wellness Interactive.
NOTE: This episode (and a few others in my queue) was recorded prior to the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter and anti-racism movements, which is why the topic is not mentioned in our conversation. As friends Emily and I have since discussed current events and something we are both doing to educate ourselves is a 30-day learning module from Rachel Cargle called #DoTheWork. It's very educational, blunt and what need to be learning right now.
I believe my content can be more diverse and I am committed to sharing Black-owned businesses related to topics discussed in previously recorded and future episodes. I'm also reaching out to women that I've recently discovered via social media whose experiences I would love to shine a light on. Sending everyone love and a virtual hug. We are stronger together.

Books we talk about in this episode:
June Book Club Selection: Reader's choice of a novel written by a BIPOC and/or or with a BIPOC main character and that addresses racism. I am re-reading The Help as it is a book that affected me deeply when I first read it. To join book club and RSVP for the June 28 online discussion of our books, click here.
