For this Weekly Fourcast, we caught up with Whole30 co-founder and New York Times best-selling author, Melissa Hartwig Urban. In addition to co-creating the game-changing Whole30 nutritional program and authoring seven books, Melissa is a podcaster and a Certified Sports Nutritionist who specializes in helping people change their relationship with food and create life-long, healthy habits.
“I’m so focused on self-care, but self-care is just as much about pushing yourself into growth as it is pulling back and recovering. Reminding myself just how powerful I am through a hike, a trail run, or a movement session in the gym expands my notion of what I can do outside of exercise, as a mom, an entrepreneur, and a person who wants to make an impact on the world.”
Melissa’s Recommended Podcasts:
Do the Thing, How I Bomb-proofed My Self-Confidence
This is my podcast—in this episode, I talk about how I bomb-proofed my self-confidence using a technique I still use to this day. Hearing feedback from listeners about how they’re applying it in their own life has been so thrilling.
Hidden Brain, People Like Us
It’s hard to pick just one episode from Hidden Brain; I love how they explore so many subjects, especially social justice issues, and help me see how subconscious beliefs and thought patterns are influencing my behavior.
Again, hard to pick just one episode, but this one blew me away. I thought I understood emotions, but it’s entirely possible everything I know is wrong.
Happier with Gretchen Rubin
Pick any one of Gretchen’s A Little Happier episodes and you’ll have motivation, connection, and definitely a little more happiness in just a few minutes.
The Weekly Fourcast is a series of curated podcast recommendations from our athletes, ambassadors and employees. Every week, we’ll drop a new list of four shows and episodes that you need to hear, direct from the Jaybird crew—the perfect audio fuel for the week ahead.
