It's WHO You Eat

I sat in a breakout session at a small business conference waiting for my turn to introduce myself and what I do. I was trying to simultaneously engage with the intros of the other women in the room AND rehearse my rusty *elevator pitch*. I thought I was doing that mutli-tasking just fine until the session speaker smiled and gestured at me and THIS came out of my mouth… I’m Laura Moss and I own nourish, a coaching company where I help women heal their relationships with food and body and understand that it’s not what you eat, it’s WHO you eat.

Pssst...I Was On a Podcast

A few months ago, I got to hang with my coach (yes, even coaches have coaches!) and friend, Mandy B Anderson on her fabulous podcast, She Who Overcomes.

Chill Out with Gratitude

If you’ve been around these parts for long, you’ve probably heard me mention the uber-importance of shifting your body into its parasympathetic nervous system (PSNS) response or state as often as possible.
