For most of us, our jobs are important to our personal survival and economic well-being.  While some people have found personal fulfillment through the work they do, others are doing what they have to do to collect a check. No matter where you are in your career or employment journey, what you do for money and how you do it matters.

I really enjoyed this conversation with Aileen Axtmayer of AspireWithAileen.com, a career coach with a broad range of experience and expertise in career counseling and personal development.  What makes Aileen different from other career coaches? Her training as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Yoga Instructor offers an holistic approach to the way we (view) work, especially as our work impacts our relationship with food, our relationships and our overall well-being.

Check out these resources Aileen has for creating a meaningful career and healthy lifestyle:

I finally sat down to watch What the Health and the main thing I have to say about it is:  I’m sick of these food and health documentaries.

I’m sick of the intentional misinformation or cherry picking of facts. I’m sick of them counting on the viewer taking what they say at face value and not doing their own research to verify and confirm the so-called facts. I’m sick of them interviewing black, brown, poor, and sick people without addressing their own implicit bias or intersectionality of the single issue they’re so passionate about. I’m sick of all the revisionist history of human evolution. I’m sick of the moral superiority. I’m sick of them not telling the truth.  They’re all recycling the same information to push whatever agenda they have, and no one is really being honest about the core of the problem they’re speaking out against.

I had several working titles for this episode and so much I wanted to talk about (are vegan diets sustainable/realistic in the long-term? / did this fool really just say sugar doesn’t cause diabetes? / did they really just poverty pimp the black and low-income communities like these folks haven’t been dealing with environmental racism and disenfranchisement from day one?),  until I realized that until we start addressing the elephant in the room,  no amount of dietary change is going to change the food system or our collective health.

I spent a month getting an allergy shot every week and taking allergy medication twice a day, while also using a nasal spray. This was not living for me, so I began to research alternatives to allergy medications.

I’m sharing this not as a cure-all, but as a way for you to reimagine what your life might look like if you didn’t have allergies and if you weren’t on allergy medication.
