May 2, 2019

On today’s show (introduced by my partner Mr. Happy Lawyer), I chat with Angela Han, a corporate attorney with a side hustle as a plant based health and fitness coach for lawyers. We chat about how to cultivate the habits needed in order to achieve better health and wellness. Angela is open, honest, and practical as she shares how her 7 year battle with eating led her to her current passion in health and wellness. In addition to getting your weekly dose of inspiration, this episode is full of actionable tips to help you gain a healthy relationship with your body today. Enjoy!


TRIGGER WARNING: We do discuss eating disorders within the episode, please protect your own boundaries and self-care.
