THE LIVELY

BLOG

The latest podcasts, vlogs & blog posts.

Today’s Lively Show is a wonderful conversation with author and podcast host, Jonathan Fields.

Good Life Project, Jonathan’s podcast, is a wonderful show with incredible guests. And in case you’re interested, I’ve also been fortunate to have been on the show recently talking about masculine and feminine energy as well. In Jonathan’s newest book, How To Live a Good Life, is a deep dive into one of the most profound insights I’ve come across in the 2.5 years I’ve been hosting TLS.

In today’s episode, we are going into a wide range of subjects including how to thrive in every area of your life – in a way that seems initially counterintuitive (which is why so many of us, including myself, have fallen into the trap that is in direct contrast to this principle).

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to learn about a powerful and simple principle that allows you to thrive in all areas of your life, particularly when you feel burned out.
