    This podcast really resonated with me today as I build my new life coaching business! I love LOVE Dr. Ahmed’s life view of what “health” can mean. What “balance” can mean. And how our human and societal expectations (numbers game) can sabotage our capacity for a joyful and rewarding life. Great podcast today! Thank you.
