INTRO TO EPISODE:

Hello, Health Investor!

So happy you’re back here with me to learn more tips n’ tricks for optimal health!

I’m suuuuper excited for you to hear this interview with Sharon from @themomrenovation.

As you’ll hear, Sharon is working towards a minimalist lifestyle and “intentionalism”—a new word for me!

In this episode, we talk a lot about the benefits of a “minimal-ish” lifestyle (as Sharon calls it), all of which directly impact your overall health!

I’ve followed Sharon on Instagram for over a year, so I knew how much value she’d bring to our conversation. BUT, I honestly didn’t expect to learn as much as I did!

I know you’re going to love our chat, but first let me quickly share an Apple Podcast review.

Thank you SO MUCH to Njgymgal for rating The Health Investment 5 stars and leaving a WRITTEN review, as well! Written reviews give me so much feedback—I love ‘em!

Smart information that’s easy to digest (lol) Loving this podcast! Brooke provides important health information in an easy-to-implement format. Makes me feel like health goals aren’t insurmountable. The holiday eating podcast was my favorite so far. I needed to hear that my cheese board wasn’t going anywhere (haha), and I’m opting for sheep and goat options moving forward- my stomach already says thanks!

Something specific Njgymgal wrote really resonated with me: that this podcast makes her feel like health goals aren’t insurmountable.

What a HUGE compliment—because that’s my ultimate goal! I want you to get as muuuuch value from every episode as possible. And I want “getting healthy” to feel DOable—cause it is! 

Alright, on to my conversation with Sharon…prepare to be inspired to adopt a minimalist lifestyle!
