154: How Our Struggles Influence Our Biology

By November 3, 2020February 3rd, 2023No Comments

It seems the most interesting, complex and inspiring people I know have all been through something really hard. They’ve struggled somehow.

Struggles help us develop resilience. Often in order to survive, we start searching for things – help, resources, conversations, maybe something inside ourselves like our own strengths.

But not everyone who struggles finds their light. Some stay in the darkness. Some feel beaten down by their experience and just can’t seem to find the strength to get up and out of it. They feel like the world is against them, or they’re a victim of their own circumstance.

So what’s the difference? Why do some people’s struggles seem to make them, while others break them?

So how do we start to find that meaning? How to we start to recognize the wisdom in our own achievements? Instead of just the details of our own stories?

Our guest is Kirsten Beverley Waters. She is a Yoga Medicine teacher, fitness coach, author, and motivational speaker.

She credits the low moments in her life with enabling her to find her voice and harness her powers. And today she dives deep into an exploration of personal experience and how our individual stories and struggles help shape our biology, giving breath to our individual superpowers.
