We're in tough times during the COVID-19 epidemic, and we're living in times of uncertainty. 

Finding hope and staying grounded can be so hard now, and it's really important for us to come together and stay focused.

In this episode, I talked about the following objectives and points

  • What is an abundant mindset and what is a scarcity mindset?
  • How to get an abundant mindset during times like now?
  • What is faith? What is spirituality?
  • Why being active is important to hold on to an abundant mindset and hold onto faith?

In here, I've used these blog posts as points of references:

How faith plays a role in our fitness journeys with Sara

How faith plays a role in our fitness journeys with Sara

December 25, 2019

This is the week where both Jewish and Christians celebrate their holidays, both Hanukkah and Christmas. And I am all about faith and fitness here on my show and on all the work that I've been doing with BeFit4Akhirah. So having Sara come on the show to talk about faith and fitness from the Jewish perspective was super inspirational.

The mission of Fit Jewess is the following:

Fit Jewess has a two-fold mission:

1. To provide women and gals across the world with tips, guidance, and inspiration
to help cross the divide between our fitness goals and current lifestyles from a body
positive, weight-neutral perspective.

In other words, to prove to matzah balls and potato latkes that we can and will be
fit despite our culture-specific idiosyncrasies.

2. To serve as a community of like-minded Fit Jewesses that supports, encourages
and cheers on one another.

After all, only we truly know what it’s like to be fit, female and Jewish.

On today's episode, we talked about the following:

  • The traditions of Hanukkah.
  • How faith played a role in our lifestyle and in getting active even more.
  • The body image movement that Sara is on and how it's related to what I am going to be launching in 2020.

And of course, so much more!

We would love to hear from you on your favorite part of this episode
