 Davida Kugelmass of The Healthy Maven

 

Today’s episode is with my friend Davida the girl behind The Healthy Maven. We’ve been friends for several years and connected immediately the first time we met a few summers ago in Toronto my our mutual friend Nikki introduced us. I’ve been excited to have her on the podcast and glad we finally made it happen. In this episode she lets out her honest feelings around some big life changes she’s been going through. A couple months ago I had recorded a live pod episode with her and Nikki up in Toronto unfortunately didn’t do a soundcheck before we jumped into a three hour long conversation with our live audience.  The result was an audio file that was barely audible and the conversation becoming a part of what I am now calling ‘the lost basement tracks’. But everything happens for a reason and while I am sad that conversation can’t be shared it just so happened that lots has changed for Davida over the past few months. And getting to record a new pod episode with her gave her a chance to share with me (and you) some in-real-time stuff she has been going through and the wisdom that has come from it. Davida dives into the importance of learning real health and self-care practices (more than in the kitchen and at the gym). I hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as I enjoyed having it.
