Ep. 19 Living a Life Fueled by Joy with Joy Whisperer Dr. Katie Henry
Happy #SeekTheJoy Tuesday!
On the podcast today is Joy Whisperer and Queen of Joy - Dr. Katie Henry!
Katie is a trained Doctor of Physical Therapy, neuroscientist, spiritual coach, yoga and Reiki instructor and educator. She's a transformational life and business coach, speaker, author, and lover of life. She approaches life from the heart, and she's on a mission to create more joy in the world. Her energy is truly infectious, and her zest for life can be seen in everything that she does.
Her clients have dubbed her the "joy whisperer" and the "queen of joy" - but when it comes right down to it, joy is just who Katie is. Katie chooses joy every single day - and I am so excited to share our conversation with you on today's episode.
Katie is so inspiring and relatable, and on today's episode she shares her journey living a life fueled by joy. After becoming a top pediatric physical therapist, working at a hospital, getting sick, and starting her first business she was running on empty and trying to keep it all together. It wasn't until she was running along the lake in Chicago when she realized - she had been running from herself her whole life.
Katie returned from that run, looked in the mirror, and knew in that moment she would never let her happiness be dependent on anyone else, ever again. She chose joy, and she chose herself - and she's never looked back.
When Katie told me this story during today's episode, I had chills. Her story resonated with me so much because I've been there, and chances are you have too. So many of us enter the careers we think we're supposed to, run ourselves into the ground, and when we finally come up for air we realize we've lost sight of who we are, our happiness, and our joy.
I'm confident that today's conversation will leave you feeling inspired and ready to make joy a priority in your life too.
Katie's transformation happened because of the shifts she made in her mindset and the deeper connection she made with her spiritual practice.
She has fully stepped into her power as a transformational life and business coach. Katie is living a life fueled by joy, and she works with her clients to step into their truth, joy, power, and live a life fueled by their joy.
How does she do what she do? Katie focuses on helping you make daily shifts in your mindset and health to begin to live in joy daily. She pushes you outside of your comfort zone, because it's in that space of discomfort that we grow, evolve, and change. Katie encourages you to get out of your head and into your body, connect to your feelings, and believe in who you are and what you can and will accomplish.
On today's episode we chat all about Katie's journey living a life fueled by joy, choosing not to play it small, the importance of a spiritual practice, living a location free life, and much more. Katie also shares with us practices that we can put into place now to shift our energy into joy and transform our mindset.
Katie says it so well on today's episode, every day we have the choice to decide how we're going to show up in the world. You get to shift the dialogue in your head, you get to change it, you get to choose joy and live in joy.
I had the best time connecting with Katie, and I know you're going to leave today's episode feeling inspired and ready to live a life fueled by joy!
