how to

Be Still My Anxious Heart

What if we gave you 40,000,000 dollars?

Or...40,000,000 steps you would need to perform in order to claim your prize?

That’s a huge number!

Well, unfortunately, that’s the number of Americans suffering from anxiety.

It’s such a big topic right now with most people saying the word in an almost humorous tone, but in all seriousness what does it really look like?

In today’s episode (lucky for you) we have an actual professional in the form of one of our talented hosts, Olivia, to help us out with this one.

Ever been in a workout and felt like your heart was about to jump out of your mouth? Have you ever struggled with racing thoughts? Like, no matter how hard you try your tummy is racked with "nerves" and you get "the poops?"

You may be experiencing anxiety.


We help you better understand WHAT anxiety is, how it can show up in your life in ways you may not expect and WHAT to do about it.

Swipe Right For Nasty Girls: Exploring Rejection and Intimacy in Dating

Navigating the world of dating can be quite a humbling experience. What does it look like in your 20s versus your 30’s and so on?

Amy and Olivia discuss their experiences together and chime in on everything from social pressures to swiping right for love. How it's far more important to be authentic and your whole-self as a single lady than it is to be with someone just for the sake of being with someone.

El Passion: Stop Doing Crap You Hate

MISSING: passion. Have you seen it? Would you know what it looks like? What does it really mean? This episode is dedicated to passion in and out of the gym. Tune in to find how you can make simple changes to reap big rewards.

The gym is a seemingly hard place to find passion. We give you some tips on how to reverse the thought process behind your workouts and possibly gain an edge on getting closer to your goal(s). We discuss how rooting yourself in the community around you is a great tool you can use. It sounds crazy but working out and the friends you make in the gym could be the key to finding your passion on your fitness journey.

"El passion," as Amy likes to call it, is a mysterious idea. There are so many versions of what passion is so it's easy to be confused as to what yours should look like. What's important is that you know your strengths and we are here to help you find them. So, whether you're looking for passion in the form of a steamy novel, or something more on the professional level, the Nasty Girls got yo back! Enjoy!

Stay Nasty,

MINISODE: 13 Reasons Why We Love Mental Health Part 2

Wow. It is incredible how much incredible feedback we have received from our last episode: 13 reasons why we love mental health. Seriously. Mind-blown.

We figured that it was a big enough topic for us to come back and do a little minisode...and Olivia felt like she wanted to better explain a few areas that she just couldn't get to in the last episode. ;o)

So, we explored ways we self-sabotage, what the heck is codependency, why shopping around for a counselor is a super good idea and connecting with those around you because we're all going through something.

Check out our facebook to WATCH us if you'd prefer :)

Enjoy!
