Wellness Pro Podcast with Cate Stillman

Jul 5, 2017

In this episode I rap with Annette Shellenbarger about: understanding, trusting, and loving the Ayurvedic habits.

Tips on habit evolution and how it can help you:

  • Cultivate your own mental, emotional, and physical thrive
  • Influence other people in your life without nagging or telling them what to do
  • Teach clients more effectively on what they need to do to help themselves by displaying your own passion for the habits you've adopted
  • Feel comfortable talking to all people at every stage of life about what habits will help them thrive


Tune in and learn how to:

  • Integrate Ayurvedic habits into your own life, and see them change the lives of those around you
  • Display your passion for the habits you have adopted so your Tribe can become as excited about them as you are
  • Help people living with disease to adopt habits that will help them live a more comfortable and fulfilled life, regardless of their disease status


Show Highlights:

  • 4:15 – Annette lists the habits that made the biggest difference in her mental and emotional Thrive, and describes her evolution as a Yoga Health Coach
  • 7:30 – When you are passionate about something, your energy draws people in: you have to understand, believe in, love, and trust the Ayurvedic habits in order to teach them to other people
  • 9:40 – Focus on yourself first, and not on changing anyone else: by changing your own habits, your positive energy influences those around you and inspires them to change their habits too
  • 14:10 – Changing small habits can make a huge difference in your life and the lives of others: these small habits provide comfort as well as inspiration to make larger changes
  • 16:55 – Much of the time, we view people who have a disease as the disease itself. Annette and Cate discuss coaching people with diseases and making sure to remove the stigma of the disease and to treat them like the human beings they are.
  • 19:30 – Everyone needs these habits in their life. Connect with the person in front of you, regardless of their disease status or stage of life.
