Making Decisions From A Place of Love, Not Fear with Kendra Adachi

Listen to the UNcivilized Podcast:

Are you operating from love or fear? Today’s guest, Kendra Adachi came on to talk about the changes that can be made in your life by doing things out of love instead of from a place of fear. Kendra moved toward a healthier lifestyle after realizing her body was addicted to processed foods and on this episode, she shares why she prescribes movement as a form of healing to her clients, how to recognize your own bio-individuality when making food choices and paying attention to your mental and emotional states when you’re consuming food. We discuss becoming the CEO of your own health and feeling into whether a decision will expand you or contract you.
