Be More Well Podcast

Hey all, I'm Jeff St. Pierre and I'm on a journey to be the best possible version of myself. Trouble is, I know almost nothing about wellness and mindfulness. Be More Well is a show dedicated to conversations with experts and others who can shine a light on the things that can help us be more healthy, be more calm, be more mindful and ultimately be more well.

Honey County's Dani Rose joins me this week for a conversation. It's more of a catch up between friends. I've known her for about a decade now, but it has been a minute since we've had a good long chat. Thanks for joining us for this one! We talk about Dani's hustle and drive in the music industry, what it's like to start fresh with her new Honey County partner and an adventure on a farm during a music vi...

Francis de Vericourt, one of the authors of 'Framers: Human Advantage in an Age of Technology and Turmoil', connected with me from Berlin to talk about how we think and understand problems. 'Frames' are the mental models that we use to understand problems and then make decisions based off. It allows us to look at things from different perspectives. It's so fascinating to look at different things and see how pe...

Tenille Arts is one of my favorite artists breaking through in the country music scene. She just got her first number one on the country charts with 'Somebody Like That' and is ready to conquer the world. We catch up in this episode of Backstage Pass and talk about what life was like growing up, how she battles through anxiety and how Canadian coins used to screw me at vending machines in New Hampshire.

Everyone has searched their symptoms online. If you say you haven't, you're a liar. We've all fallen into the trap of searching for something seemingly simple and then finding results like impending death. It's easy to joke about it, but there is such a crazy wealth of knowledge out there on the internet. There's also a ton of misinformation out there. That has never been more clear than it is now in the time...

For this week's episode of Be More Well: Backstage Pass I'm joined by Emma White. She's a Baltimore area native that's been living and working in Nashville for about a decade. I first came across Emma about 10 years ago when my radio station was playing her music on our local music show. I've been following her career ever since and she never ceases to impress me. The music industry is hard, but Emma has nev...

This week I'm joined by the incomparable Meaghan B Murphy. She's currently the content director at Woman's Day magazine but has also spent time at MTV, Good Housekeeping, as well as other publications. Oh, and I can't forget her podcast, Off The Gram. She is one busy woman. Meaghan lives a life of optimism and positivity. And it's made all the difference. She's ready to attack each day, as opposed to l...

We've always been taught that working out and cutting carbs is the key to losing weight, right? It's the tried and true method behind so many fad diets. But, what if that isn't true? What if the amount of exercise and activity we had didn't really change the amount of calories we burn in a day? That's the new research from Dr. Herman Pontzer that he lays out in his book 'Burn: New Research Blows the Lid O...

Be More Well was started in January 2020 as a way for me to share some of the inspiring conversations I was having during my own personal journey toward better overall health and wellness. Over the last year I've found that there's more I can offer to all of you, but not all of it falls under the "wellness" umbrella. This episode is what I'm calling a 'Be More Well Interlude' where I'm giving an ...

Martha Beck is a name you probably know very well. If not, I hope you look up her work. She's a best selling author, life coach and speaker. She's written nine non-fiction books and one novel, and spent the last 17 years writing for O, The Oprah Magazine. I'm so excited that I had a chance to bring Martha on the show this week to talk about her new book, 'The Way of Integrity: Finding the Path to Your True Self.&...

Author and journalist Kayleen Schaefer has a fascinating look at how people in their thirties are changing the way we view adult life. Turning 30 no longer holds the same power and panic that it used to. I catch up with Kayleen to talk about her research and findings that she put in her new book 'But You're Still So Young: How Thirtysomethings Are Redefining Adulthood.'

Luvvie Ajayi Jones is a blogger, author and public speaker. She just released her second book titled 'Professional Troublemaker: The Fear-Fighter Manual.' In it she discusses being a 'professional troublemaker' in life and how important that role is. Also, she talks about imposter syndrome which is something I've been very interested in lately. Our conversation is largely wrapped around that concept. For more...

We live in a time when you can get just about anything you want with just a few taps on your phone. On the one hand, it's amazing how easy it is. On the other, have we lost out on some basic skills that humans had been using for generations? Over the last few decades life has gotten busier. In two parent households you have both parents working leaving them less time to cook dinners and share recipes. In single parent homes...

If you know anything about me, you know that my journey to taking back my life started about 5 years ago. It was the first time I picked up a copy of Sarah Knight's debut book 'The Life Changing Magic Of Not Giving A Fuck.' She spoke to me. It was the book that I needed in my life and it helped me realize that I was not on the right path. Over the years Sarah has released 5 books, 3 workbooks, 1 daily calendar and no...

It's easy to look somewhere else for a solution to your problems. We have such a difficult time looking within. Someone else has to have a better option, right? But, what if looking within could unlock power you never thought you had? That's what we're talking about today. Kimberly Friedmutter is joining me to talk about her book 'Subconscious Power: Use Your Inner Mind To Create The Life You've Always Wanted...

Fairness. I'd say most people would see that as a positive word. Especially in relationships. Most of us are striving for a fair household where each partner holds up their end of the bargain and does their 'fair share.' How's that working for you? Do you find that sometimes your partner isn't pulling their weight? Maybe you're frustrated because you think you're doing so much more in the house? F...

When you're becoming a parent everyone has tons of advice for you. They all have something to say. Now that I've become a dad I'm realizing that advice was just the tip of the iceberg. There is so much more that happens that no one really prepares you for. I want to talk about those things they don't warn you about. Like the physical recovery after giving birth, what kind of role dads may play during the birth, ...

What are you afraid of? There are some obvious answers like snakes, heights, replying all with a snarky response to the boss. Fear manifests itself in many ways through your life. Right now I'm afraid of being a bad dad to my new baby girl. It terrifies me to think that something I do could make her unhappy or change her life for the worse. While fear can be something that holds us back, it's also an emotion that is d...

What's the most common New Year's resolution? If you said 'lose weight' you'd be right. Millions of people each January vow to lose weight and get healthy. Unfortunately many of these people turn to the latest fad diet to help them with their goal. Sure, maybe you'll see some quick results, but these fad diets are not designed to help you with the long game of keeping the weight off for good. That takes ...

As the world slowed down during the pandemic, our social connections started to shrink. We stayed in contact with our close network, but those on the fringe started to fall off. It's estimated that our networks shrunk by about 17%. What kind of impact does that have on our overall happiness and wellness? Marissa King, Yale professor and leader in the field of networks, dives into that discussion with her new book 'Socia...

I'll admit that the biggest reason I do this podcast is for selfish reasons. I'm trying to learn more about how to live my healthiest and happiest life. This interview has opened my eyes to some new things I hadn't thought about before. I always associated the pelvic floor and pelvic health to women who were pregnant or had just given birth. Now I know I'm very wrong. I spoke with Dr. Samantha DuFlo from Indigo Phys...
