What Staying Power Means in a Relationship
In this solo episode, I discuss what staying power means when it comes to maintaining a relationship. One might substitute the word resiliency, but I personally feel it means something different.

Healthy Retirement Done Holistically with Nancy Schwartz
Nancy Schwartz is the Founder and Transformational Strategist of Envision Healthy Retirement. After spending her career in corporate leadership roles, she decided she wanted to do life differently, and subsequently founded the successful retained search company, SearchExecution. Nancy’s innovative and solution-oriented approach to solving complex issues is what has earned her high praise and recognition to date. Interestingly, Nancy is a classically trained ballerina who has worked for nationally known ballet and modern companies. Nancy has thus used her skills in nuanced movement, discipline, artistry, and the importance of balance. In summary, why I invited Nancy to the podcast is because she is such an advocate for personal growth and enrichment, and has done the work to create more tools in her toolbox to help women transform, including certifications from Tiny Habits®, Retirement Options, HeartMath, and the Health Coach Institute, to name a few.   Relevant Links | Social Media:

Clinical Manifestations of PCOS and Hormonal Imbalance With Dr. Felice Gersh
I had the pleasure of welcoming back Dr. Felice Gersh, a multi-award-winning physician with dual board certifications in OB-GYN and Integrative Medicine. She is the founder and director of the Integrative Medical Group of Irvine, based in California, USA. Dr. Gersh is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to understanding women’s physiology. She doesn’t treat women’s health with a silo mentality, but instead as an intricate system of organs. She understands that the body has an amazing method of self-healing and repair when we simply use the right tools.   In this podcast episode, we review common symptoms of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and how it takes two out of the three criteria to provide a clear diagnosis, how taking contraceptives can complicate diagnosis, and the considerations a woman needs to be aware of if considering pregnancy. We also summarize a few of the seven steps outlined in Dr. Gersh’s books, PCOS SOS and the PCOS SOS Fertility Fast Track. Also, just a reminder, her latest book Menopause: 50 Things You Need to Know, is now available on Amazon.    Relevant Links | Social Media:

How Self-Judgement Can Weigh on Your Relationship
In today’s episode, I explain how the notion of unworthiness or not being enough can have a profound impact on your romantic relationship. In my series on Improving your relationship by improving yourself, I describe how being self-judgemental falls under the ‘perfectionist’ personality type.   As a perfectionist, you not only torment yourself on a daily basis to the point of mental exhaustion, but you are also judging your partner. You find yourself living in constant fear of making a mistake, yet making a mistake is a human quality, state, or essence. Life is not black or white, we are constantly living in a spectrum of good and bad…we have joy, then we have sadness, we have energy and then we have fatigue, we say intelligent words, then we say words we regret. Life is full of a lot of grey.   The solution is in the power of awareness. To find out more about how to create a habit of thought awareness, sit back and listen.   Be sure to check out the catalog of video episodes on the Luella Jonk YouTube channel, and if you enjoy them, please like, share, and subscribe.

Procrastination: How it Relates to Lacking a Deeply Connecting Relationship
When it comes to why couples struggle to maintain or establish a relationship, procrastination is not normally the first thing that comes to mind. However, it can be an underlying cause to why couples are having difficulty in achieving the kind of relationship they have longed to achieve with their partner.   In this episode, I discuss the true reason why people procrastinate (and it has nothing to do with laziness or not caring). I also suggest a laddered approach to overcoming procrastination and what your partner could do to help you to overcome your challenges. Lastly, I touch on the limiting beliefs of yourself that might be keeping you at a level of mediocracy rather than overwhelming joy.  Be sure to check out the catalog of video episodes on the Luella Jonk YouTube channel, and if you enjoy them, please like, share, and subscribe.

How to Best Create the Relationship You Crave
In today’s episode, I describe my personal approach to creating a better, more connective, more fulfilling relationship in a way that guarantees your own personal success by rebuilding a new version of yourself. Whether or not your partner will grow with you is unknown at this time. However, if you are ready to step up to the plate and guarantee your own happiness in life, by use of this proven method, this episode is for you. It explains how I help women rid their old debilitating versions of themselves and replace it with the true, authentic, and genuine versions of themselves which I call the "new concept of self".

The Power of Regulating Your Emotions with Dr. Shyamala Kiru
Today I welcomed Dr. Shyamala Kiru. Shyamala is an ex-therapist turned Leadership Mentor, obsessed with the connection between our emotional intelligence and our capacity for success, both personally and professionally. She works with high-performance, female entrepreneurs and professionals who desire to master their emotional intelligence and unlock embodied leadership, so they can execute their mission at a whole new level.   Shyamala is also an author, podcaster, and mom who is based out of Toronto.  I personally feel this topic is not discussed enough and perhaps it is because people do not realize that it is possible to regulate your emotions. To have agency over how you think and act.   It is possible when you are willing to look at the underlying scripts and paradigms that you have going on in your head at any given time.   These habits of thought, beliefs, and ways of thinking are essentially hijacking your ability to choose your higher emotions; joy, guiltlessness, humor, vibrancy, liberation, energized or your lower emotions; guilt, shame, procrastination, rumination, and hopelessness.     Relevant Links | Social Media:

Solo Episode: What Success Means to Me
In today’s solo episode, I discuss the concept of worthiness. Many people lack self-worth and to me, it is the foundation of success.  I think we all have moments where we feel a sense of lack, doubt, and unworthiness. Fear is common, and fear often translates to feelings of lack, so perhaps it might be helpful to ask yourself “ What am I fearing?” or “Would I act differently if I knew I wouldn’t make a mistake?” Fact be told, success comes from acting with fear. Success comes from having trust in yourself, and faith in your abilities, without evidence of knowing you will be successful. If you do this repeatedly in life, you will likely make mistakes, you will likely fail at times, but you WILL BE SUCCESSFUL. When it is all said and done, no one remembers your mistakes, not even you!  You will look back and wonder how to do it until you wonder how you did it. I credit Melanie Ann Layer for teaching me this.  Get creative when deciding what you want. What does success mean to you? Use your imagination to envision your dream. I define imagination as dreaming with intention. Imagine it until it becomes your reality. Be intentional with your thoughts and desires.  That is what success means to me.    Relevant Links | Social Media:

Martine Janta-Polczynsk: The Story of a Flemish Woman’s Destiny
I wanted to share a simple story with you of a woman I met in Tuscany. Martine Janta-Polczynsk invited us over for a beautiful dinner one evening. The view from her home was gorgeous and her energy was equally as attractive. If you want to see some images of that evening with Martine, be sure to visit my Instagram page. I just connected so well with Martine because I could tell she was a woman that embodies her spirit and leads her life from her desires, rather than toward her desires. One cannot just ‘think’ of what they want, they need to ‘be’ what they want before they experience it. For example, Martine needed to act as if she already had what she desired in order to have what she longed for…this is also so true in terms of attracting your soul mate. Begin to ‘be’ what you desire in your soulmate, rather than ‘naming’ what you want. Embody the energy of what you so long for in your life, and it will come to you. It is law! Enjoy.   Relevant Links | Social Media:

A Taste of Organic Farming in Tuscany with Alessio Maina
While still on a bit of a high from my trip to Italy, I had the privilege of interviewing Alessio Maina, an organic wine and olive farmer in the province of Arezzo, Italy. In this interview, Alessio and I discussed organic practices applied to his small acreage and why it is more a matter of quality than it is quantity when it comes to harvesting local crops. This is of course much different than the agriculture practices we are exposed to in the prairie provinces. Quantity over quality. Local, high-quality regional foods are the norm for the locals of Arezzo and other neighboring provinces of Italy. Other topics discussed in the interview include ancient wheat varieties making a comeback, local honey, forestation as a farming practice, mushroom foraging, olive oil extraction, and more. One topic that was not discussed but is worth noting is the quality of water found in the region. Because the land is somewhat rocky, sandy, and of higher altitudes, it makes for a natural filtration system for the water, thus the locals are also blessed by having access to these artesian wells. One could bottle and sell the water they drink. We end the conversation by touching on the topic of the context in which the food is eaten. Let’s just say Drive Through’s are a foreign concept in Tuscany and surrounding areas. Enjoy.   Relevant Links | Social Media:

A Conversation About Mommy Guilt and Enabling Adult Children with Dr. Lauren Behrman
Join me today as I have a candid conversation with Dr. Lauren Berhman. Dr. Berhman and I discuss how oddly common it is for collaborative family law professionals to have shared the burden of emotional fragility as it relates to separation and divorce and the pain that accompanies these life-changing events. However, it is this common thread that allows us to provide the empathy and understanding to help our clients move through these times as easily and swiftly as possible.   Secondly, we — two female therapists — after having spent the majority of our lives acting as both professionals and caregivers, came to the realization that it is time to give ourselves permission to just do ‘you’. In other words, start living our own life through intention and purpose, rather than living life through what others need of us. Both Dr. Berhman and I felt that this topic is one that needs to be discussed more openly and honestly amongst all women of all professions and it was for this reason that I invited her back to the podcast for Episode 26.  Enjoy the show!   Relevant Links | Social Media:

Dr. Felice Gersh: Ageing Gracefully Through the Use of Hormone Replacement Therapy in Women.
Today I have a repeat offender, Dr. Felice Gersh. She was first on the show a few months ago when she discussed the importance of the female reproductive cycle in terms of long-term health. If you haven’t listened to Episode #7, I highly suggest you do so.  Felice Gersh, M.D. is a multi-award-winning physician with dual board certifications in OB-GYN and Integrative Medicine. She is the founder and director of the Integrative Medical Group of Irvine, a practice that provides comprehensive health care for women by combining the best evidence-based therapies from conventional, naturopathic, and holistic medicine. She taught obstetrics and gynecology at Keck USC School of Medicine for 12 years as an Assistant Clinical Professor, where she received the highly coveted Outstanding Volunteer Clinical Faculty Award. She now serves as an Affiliate Faculty Member at the Fellowship in Integrative Medicine, through the University of Arizona School of Medicine, where she lectures and regularly grades the case presentations written by the Fellowship students for their final exams.   Felice Gersh, M.D. is the bestselling author of PCOS SOS and the PCOS SOS Fertility Fast Track, and her newest book, Menopause: 50 Things You Need to Know, is now available on Amazon. She has also had numerous scientific articles published in peer-reviewed medical journals. She is a prolific lecturer and has been featured in several films and documentary series, including The Real Skinny on Fat with Montel Williams and Fasting with Valter Longo, Ph.D.  In this episode, we discuss the importance of hormones past the reproductive years. Dr. Gersh made some excellent points about how the use of bio-identical hormones helps women age gracefully. She reminds us that this is no different than repairing the aging process when it comes to cataract surgery – as seen so commonly in aging, just as a hip replacement would be, or medications for fighting autoimmune disease, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, and breast cancer, all which are a result of hormone loss or imbalance that comes as a result of menopause.   So why are we looking at HRT with such a cautious lens? I think it is worth a conversation with your physician who hopefully works closely with a nearby compound pharmacy and who can educate/offer you the option of bio-identical hormones.    Relevant Links | Social Media:

Catherine Burdett - Getting Up Close and Personal with your Thoughts, Feelings, and Emotions.
Join me today for a powerful heart-felt ☺ episode with a woman who knows what it is like to become aligned with her feelings and use this ‘heart energy’ to get behind her thoughts. We often speak of how one must align with one’s own core values and beliefs to become our true authentic self, but what does this look like exactly? It seems like an enigma, doesn’t it? It doesn’t have to be – listen and get inspired! Catherine Burdett believes in the power of the heart to access insight and guidance on some of the most pressing personal questions that may arise in our lives. While she didn't understand the science of a coherent heart/mind connection at the time, she knew how it felt to be out of sync with her values - the emotional push and pull, of desiring to be home full-time with her new young family and the joy and reward of leading teams and contributing in the workplace. She chose to follow her heart 21 years ago, resigning her beloved role as a senior leader with a well-known hospitality brand, and hasn't looked back.  Catherine is a professional certified coach with the International Coach Federation, a trainer and master facilitator specializing in the skills and competencies of emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and resilience. As a solopreneur and CoFounder of The Alignment Project, she has enjoyed global travel working with diverse cultures and organizations. She is a member of both the Canadian Management Centre and HeartMath Institute's training, coaching, and facilitation rosters.    Relevant Links | Social Media: Enter code "10%Save" at checkout for 10% off:
