the lively show: radical self love & disordered eating with gala darling

TheLivelyShowGalaDarlingHappy Thursday and happy Lively Show day!

I’ve got a strategy-focused new episode for you today with Gala Darling talking about radical self love and overcoming disordered eating.

For those who aren’t familiar with Gala already, she’s a New Zealander living in New York City and an outspoken advocate for radical self love (she’s even done a TEDx talk on the subject).

In today’s episode she’s talking about her journey to overcome her eating issues and sharing tactics to help us become more radically self loving.

At the end, Gala also shares about how she handles career challenges, chooses which business opportunities to take, and how to say no to the ones she doesn’t want to take.

This show is for anyone who has eating issues, shaky self confidence, or wants to add a little more self love, forgiveness, and acceptance in their life!  






  • The tool Gala used to overcome her depression and eating disorder.
  • What inspired Gala to change the course of her life for the better – and eventually led to her passion for radical self love.
  • How Gala defines radical self love.
  • Gala’s suggestions for those who want to be more self loving.
  • What Gala does to overcome stress and negativity in her career and business.
  • Gala’s decision process when saying yes to new opportunities.
  • How Gala says no to opportunities she doesn’t want to take.
  • What Gala would tell someone just starting out on this journey.

    I feel like I found a kindred spirit in Gala Darling, so thanks for sharing! Love your podcast.

    1. That’s great to hear, Vanessa! I think you might really like her site too, then, if you haven’t checked it out.

  2. I am a HUGE Gala fan, and now I’ve discovered you Jess! I feel like I’ve just stumbled onto a Pandora’s box of inspiring content ^^ Loving your podcast so far!

    1. That’s awesome to hear, Kilter! I hope you enjoy the other episodes and posts as well. : )

    Hey Jess,
    I found your site through Gala Darling’s and I’m SO GLAD I did! I’ve ‘binge-listened’ to all of your podcasts over the past few days and I’ve found them so inspiring. I love your mission about living with intention and found all your podcasts to be so on-point. You are so genuine and it really comes across in your podcasts and your blog! I’m really looking forward to continuing reading/listening to your work!

    1. Hi, Avalon! That is so great. Thank you, thank you for sharing. I really appreciate it. I’ll keep the podcasts + posts coming! : )

  4. Thanks so much for this, Jess! I wasn’t familiar with tapping, but will definitely try it next time I need it.

    1. My pleasure! It’s pretty crazy. I’ve found that it works for me, but like Gala says, you have to remember to use it. : )

    I’ve been following your podcasts for a couple months now, and have started to go back and listen to old episodes – they are super inspiring! This one was probably my favorite so far. I love how Gala talks about how starting a business forces you to “face your stuff” – self doubt, self worth, authority. It’s cool to think about it as a path to discovering your true self rather than a daunting journey. Keep these interviews coming! 🙂

    1. That is so great to hear, Christy! I’m glad you resonated with Gala so strongly. She’s awesome. : )

    I’ve been going through your old podcasts and I just love this one! I remember seeing Gala’s website last year and thought she was amazing!

    And holy cow, tapping!! I can’t believe I never heard of it before, but I’ve been trying it out lately and honestly, it’s been working! I also just happen to be browsing the new books at the library and I found Nick Ornter’s new book, sweet!

    1. It’s wonderful to hear you enjoyed this episode, Suzy!!

      I’m glad you’ve been finding tapping helpful and even found Nick’s book at the library – it sounds like it was meant to be. : )
