“How to Trust the Wisdom of Your Body” with Jonathan Mead

Have you ever found yourself staying so busy that you don’t even know what you want or what you really need? This Lead with Love episode is about trusting the wisdom of your body and giving yourself full permission to slow down in our fast paced world.

In this episode, I get cozy with movement teacher and embodiment coach Jonathan Mead.

Jonathan quit his office job at age 23 to help people uncover their true offer to the world. He’s passionate about helping people reclaim their naturally strong, capable, resilient bodies, so they can play freely without fear of breaking and show up strongly for the communities they love.

Believing that people need more connection to their bodies, to nature, and to each other, he loves seeing the ways people transform when they reconnect to their true selves.

His deepest mission is to instigate a movement of humans reconnecting with their true nature, and rebuilding their naturally strong bodies.

Key Quotes:

“I didn’t want to have someone dictate my schedule. I didn’t want to just be working mindlessly to help someone achieve their goals, that I didn’t even really align with.” [12:37]

“You know when you’re moving that slowly, you feel things a lot more, like emotions.” [24:50]

“I was terrified of not being good enough. I was terrified of not being perfect, and I was terrified of basically being a failure. I thought the solution to those things was to always do more.” [28:06]

“For me, when I slow down I’m actually more in relationship with myself.” [29:29]

“You need to start moving all your joints through their range of motion, and through that process, you’re going to develop an awareness of what exactly is going on in your body and start to see where some of those blind spots are.” [53:11]

“Working on your body is going to improve and affect every other area of your life.” [56:33]
