You asked, I’m answering! On this episode, I’m answering/talking about the questions you asked for this Q&A episode. Because of the volume of questions, I’ll be splitting it up into 3 parts over the next two weeks. This first part I’m talking about wedding planning & personal growth.

 

Wedding

  • I love the idea of a small intimate wedding but have a huge family. How do you find the right balance of who to invite? Do you regret not having some people there?
  • I’m going to try on some wedding dresses soon and I can’t shake the idea that I might look “fat” in them
  • Would love to know your best tips for wedding planning?
  • I’d like to know how you kept it simple at your wedding. How did you prioritize all the details?
  • Is marriage what you expected?
  • Any new adjustments to living with your husband since you got married?

Life/Personal Growth/Transitions

  • What’s the best way to overcome insecurity and limiting beliefs?
  • Practical ways to start practicing intuition?
  • What are your thoughts on having a life coach or should I just get in touch with my intuition?
  • How to find a best friend at 25?
  • Advice for someone starting medical school? (new city, new life)
  • Are there any books you’ve read that helped shape your outlook and mindset on life?
  • How do you maintain happiness during stressful/dreary times of year?
  • Where did you go to college and why? Best part about your college experience?
  • How do you practice manifestation in your daily routine?
  • Could you share tips for transitioning seasons. I feel like my habits are in a roller coaster sometimes and it’s hard to be consistent?
  • How do you approach a difficult conversation/confrontation without feeling guilty or worried?
  • I quit teaching in June and had the hardest time finding a new job. I was very stressed and unhappy teaching. I found a new job, but it isn’t turning out to be what I expected. I think I need to leave the position but that puts me back at square one. I have savings so I’m not totally floundering but how can I deal with this transition and not being so hard on myself?
  • When you were off your phone how did you occupy the time you would usually spend scrolling?
  • Favorite activities that don’t include social media/things related to your blog
  • Dating as an introvert!
  • What advice would you give someone trying to balance other people’s expectations?

On this episode, I’m talking with Suze Yalof Schwartz creator of Unplugged meditation. We talk about the why behind meditation and the how to get you started

 

On this Episode We Talk About:

Suze’s life before meditation

how meditation changed her life

why we need to escape the internet

life before and after meditation

the difference between time and meditation

common misconceptions about meditation

how meditation helps you become aware of the different perspectives

what is and isn’t meditation

the unplug app

 

About Suze:

Suze Yalof Schwartz is the founder and CEO of Unplug Meditation, the world's first drop-in secular meditation studio. She is also the author of Unplug: A Simple Guide To Meditation for Busy Skeptics and Modern Soul Seekers, and the creator of the Unplug Meditation App. In 2012, Suze learned a three-minute meditation that changed her life forever. Prior to this, she was a fashion editor and "makeover guru" working at Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire and Glamour Magazine with regular appearances on GMA, The Today Show, CBS Early Show, and more. Once she discovered meditation, she was determined to keep doing it but she could not find a place to easily learn and practice. After taking hundreds of hours of classes, reading every book possible, and listening to podcasts and lectures from the world's most famous meditation teachers, Suze realized that meditation needed a makeover and she was the one to do it. Suze's mission is to make meditation simple, accessible, powerful and interesting enough so that everyone will want to practice it and experience the benefits for themselves.
