Should "Different" Mean "Bad"? Episode 32 with Tiffany Stuart
If 2020 showed us anything, it is just how differently all of us experience the world. To cultivate empathy, we need to be open to hearing one another's stories and learning from everyone we encounter. This is the approach that today's guest, Tiffany Stuart, lives by. Tiffany is a Certified Holistic Health Coach, podcast host of What in the Wellness with Tiffany, internationally featured content creator, and wellness media journalist. Her mission is to help women bring wellness into their everyday lives.
In this episode, Tiffany talks about how she views differences and why she is hesitant to have a polarized view of things. We also hear about her hormonal healing journey and how it led her to become a voice in the wellness space. As a Black woman, Tiffany is acutely aware of the angry Black woman stereotype, and she shares with us how she navigates this. Our conversation also touches on creating safe spaces for people to share their experience, the need to have those uncomfortable conversations about race, and Tiffany's thoughts on the postpartum period.
Our email this week (54:22) answers the question "which skincare products should I use after a midday workout?"
