This episode is brought to you by Fabletics. You’ve heard all the jokes about moms and yoga pants, but these jokes exist for a reason! Yoga pants and leggings are comfortable and practical, especially for those of us who work out almost every day but have lots of other stuff going on too. I’m a big fan of choosing products that last but that don’t break the bank and that are flattering (even after having kids when my stomach isn’t necessarily perfect anymore). I run on a tight schedule to manage businesses, kids and sneak in self-care, so I need my workout clothes to be functional for deadlifts and also cute enough to run errands or take the kids to choir practice without needing to change. That is why I am a little giddy that I finally get to partner with Fabletics. This is a company founded by the beautiful Kate Hudson. It’s a fashion focused active wear brand. Their mission is to empower women by making a healthy, active lifestyle accessible to everyone because of its exceptional price point. No matter if you’re ready to zen out in yoga, go to a Crossfit class or just go for a jog in the park, Fabletics has something truly for all of those activities and they’re all super cute so you can wear them anywhere. Before I forget, Fabletics is offering all of you guys an incredible deal you don’t want to miss: You can get 2 leggings for only $24 ($99 value) when you sign up for a VIP, which also entitles you to some cool discounts on products. Just go to fabletics.com/wellnessmama to take advantage of this deal.

This episode is sponsored by Just Thrive probiotics. I found this company a couple of months ago and I was blown away by the difference in their products! They offer two cornerstone products that are both clinically studied and highly effective. The first is their probiotic, which has been clinically studied to help with leaky gut and to survive up to 1,000 times as much as other probiotics or the beneficial organisms in something like Greek yogurt for instance. Their spore-based strains work completely differently than other types of probiotics. Also, this probiotic is vegan, dairy free, histamine free, non-GMO, and is made without soy, dairy, sugar, salt, corn, tree nuts, or gluten—so it’s safe for practically everyone. Their probiotic contains a patented strain called Bacillus Indicus HU36®, which produces antioxidants in the digestive system where they can be easily absorbed by body. Their other product is a K2-7, and this nutrient—you may have heard of it—is known as the “Activator X,” the super-nutrient that Weston A. Price found prevalent in foods in the healthiest communities in the world. Just Thrive K2 is the only pharmaceutical grade, all-natural supplement with published safety studies. Like the probiotic, this is also, gluten, dairy, soy, nut and GMO free. You can check out both and learn more by going to http://wellnessmama.com/go/probiotic/

Working Remotely Is Not Necessarily Stress-Free

Many believe that working from home or remotely can foster freedom and stress-free job satisfaction, and that everyone wants  more work autonomy. A new study from Baylor University in Waco, Texas, says “Not so fast.” In the study, researchers examined the impact of remote work on employee well-being. Their findings suggest that a variety of factors can undermine or accent the employee benefits of working off-site. Accordingly, researchers developed new strategies to help managers provide remote-work opportunities that are valuable to the employee and the company. “Any organization, regardless of the extent to which people work remotely, needs to consider well-being of their employees as they implement more flexible working practices,” the researchers wrote. The study appears in the European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology . In the review, a total of 403 working adults were surveyed for the two studies that made up the research, said lead author Sara Perry, Ph.D. Re

Today’s Popular Music is More Angry, Sad and Less Joyful

Today’s popular music is noticeably different from the popular songs of the 1960s and 1970s. Now a new study reveals that it’s not just the music itself that is different; today’s music consumers seem to prefer songs that express darker emotions in both lyric and tone. The findings, published in the Journal of Popular Music Studies , show that the expression of anger and sadness in popular music has increased gradually over time, while the expression of joy has declined. Using quantitative analytics, researchers from Lawrence Technological University in Michigan studied changes in popular music lyrics throughout the last seven decades, from the 1950s to 2016. Data scientists Kathleen Napier and Dr. Lior Shamir analyzed the lyrics of more than 6,000 songs found on the Billboard Hot 100, a list of the most popular songs of each year. In the past, songs were ranked primarily by record sales, radio broadcasting, and jukebox plays, but in more recent years, popularity is based on several

I Pretend that Fictional Characters Are Real & Talk to Myself as Them

I’ve always loved to play pretend. But now that I’m a teenager, instead of outgrowing it, it’s gotten worse. Now I’ve gotten to the point where it’s an obsession, and I spend more time with my imaginary friends then with real people. I pretend that my favorite characters from movies and TV shows are real, and I talk to myself, both as myself and the character. I have long discussions with myself. I also pretend that they are with me everywhere I go–to the supermarket, to my cousin’s house. I pretend that they’re with me, no matter what I do. Lately, I’ve also been doing something that’s hard to explain: I pretend to be two people (usually myself and my mother, or a cousin, or a made-up person) and have a pretend to have a conversation with them. I pretend that the fiction character is watching me and my mother/cousin/other. Usually, those scenarios involve either a verbal fight, or joking. I’m really concerned because I know this is abnormal and I’m not living a normal life. I’m worri
