“Wellness is being aligned with truth. Listen to your intuition; you know what's truth and what's not. Honor your truth and whatever feels right to you on a spiritual, mental, physical, or nutritional level and I promise you that your intuition will take you on the path that you need to go.” – Tara Garrison

Coach, Host of the Inside Health Podcast, and Founder of both HIGHER: Women Who Rise and the KELEO movement, Tara Garrison, shares how plant medicine helped her overcome past traumas, her “accidental” awakening to the health and wellness industry, and how to live a more conscious life by truly paying attention to your intuition.

How can holding yourself more accountable, creating a schedule, and really listening to your inner voice help you live life well?

Discover how to be healthy from the inside out by setting up a gratitude practice, building a sustainable fuel source of motivation, and focusing on self-care every day.

Power Quotes From The Show

Instant Change Through Your Intuition

“Intuition will nudge you and you can either listen and your whole life will get better or don't listen and it will just continue as is. I have learned that the faster I listen to my intuition, the better my life gets faster.” – Tara Garrison

 

Organizing Your Life Through Meditation

“When I meditate, I am able to separate myself from the stress and sit back to look at it. It's like I'm an eagle on top of a mountain, I'm soaring around, and I'm looking down at my life to see what I can shift, let go of, or add something new. So, instead of being stuck in all of my stress, meditation has helped me see how I can change my life.” – Tara Garrison

 

Creating A Sacred Space & Time

“What has helped me set healthy boundaries is having an established morning routine and maybe some people just think it's too whoo-whoo but it has been crazy powerful for me. It's the only way I'm able to create the life I want to live because if I don't schedule in time for a gratitude practice or meditation session, it does not happen. I can't just put on all the brakes in the middle of the day for them; it's just not going to happen. So, I have to create sacred space for me and nobody is bugging me at 4:30 in the morning.” – Tara Garrison

OrganifiAre you getting the quality nutrition your body needs?

It's what provides us with energy every day. And when we don’t give our body the nutrition it needs, we feel it. It’s in the way we lack motivation. It’s in the way we get stuck in ruts, dragging ourselves to work, to lunch, back to work, and back home…

You don’t need to hire a nutritionist, though. You don’t need to live at the gym, either. In fact, all you really need is about 3 minutes a day… and Organifi will do the rest.
