#89 What is Easeful Living?

Body Wisdom With Dr. Michele
Welcome to Season 3 of the Body Wisdom Podcast with Dr. Michele.

This season the podcast will be focusing on healthy habits. As your host, I’ll be recording solo episodes which will answer some of the most common questions I’m asked as a physician such as “how do I build a new habit?” "which habits are essential to get healthy again?" "what can I do to lose weight?" "how can I look and feel younger again?" "how can I start exercising again if I haven't done it in years?" and more. I will also be coaching patients and clients live on-air, and conducting interviews with other health & wellness experts. Of course, I am always open to new topic ideas, so if there is a topic you would like me to address or if there is a question you would like answered, please reach out. Email me directly at

Today Dr. Michele explains "What is Easeful Living?"

I hope you enjoy the show!

It's about feeling so deeply nourished by life that there's more patience and compassion for those around us.

Easeful living is about being in a flow and having a deeper trust that you are taken care of.

How do we do this?

It comes about from daily self-care and healthy routines.

When we're not in an easeful state chances are we haven’t aligned our day with what matters most. Or maybe we're too busy and overscheduled to be able to slow down and enjoy ourselves. Maybe we haven't taken care of ourselves with proper food, the right exercise or enough sleep. Maybe we're stuck in ...
