Ep. #8: Using Cannabis Consciously, Spirituality, & Unlocking the Magic Within w/ Lauren Unger

Today’s episode covers a lot of ground: spirituality, reiki, becoming your true self and yes, cannabis.

Lauren Unger is a Spiritual Guide, Holy Fire Reiki master, medium, crystal and cannabis expert, healing chef, and certified holistic health coach.

As you guys know, I’m not the most woo-woo person. I take everything with a grain of salt and a healthy dose of skepticism. Even so I love learning about the more woo-woo side of wellness. Even if you’re not all that woo-woo too too, this conversation is a good intro to exploring spirituality.

I was also super curious to pick Lauren’s brain on the topic of conscious cannabis consumption. It’s a complicated, dense, subject to unpack and I know I personally have mixed opinions if I’m going to be honest. More often than not I personally have seen cannabis used as a means to numb pain and avoid facing life head on. More and more websites are talking about cannabis in a wellness context (case and point: Well and Good, mindbodygreen and Pop Sugar to name a few). I have a feeling this is a subject thats only going to become more relevant as more states legalize cannabis.

The Self-Care Tools You Need To Add To Your Fitness Routine

When I think about self-care I think about fancy schmancy face masks. Truth bomb: I’ve never done a face mask, can I still call myself a wellness blogger? Bubble baths with ALL the bath bombs. Getting a massage. Those luxurious, spectacular things. As you guys know I’m a believer that self-care can be mad simple (and…

Yerba Mate Morning Smoothie

Today I’m talking about one of my favorite things in the world: CAFFEINE. If you know me you know that I love me some caffeine. And let’s be honest, it’s also pretty necessary when you wake up at 4:30AM some days for work. Even though I love (okay, need) caffeine, I’ve actually never been much of a…
