Ali on the Run Show Episode 245: Feel-Good Friday with Rachel Gersten & Jor-El Caraballo, Licensed Therapists & Co-Founders of Viva Wellness

“It’s not so much what you’re doing — it’s why are you doing it?”

Welcome to the first episode in a four-part series called Feel-Good Fridays. These short episodes are intended to leave you feeling lighter, better, more optimistic — whether temporarily or for the rest of your life. These conversations with experts are meant to be uplifting without being fluffy or delusional. We’re kicking things off with Rachel Gersten and Jor-El Caraballo, licensed therapists and co-founders of Viva Wellness, a private therapy practice in New York City. In just 20 minutes, Rachel and Jor-El will help us all breathe a little easier. They bust some common self-care myths, and offer tangible advice on how we can all take better care of ourselves right now. (And, if nothing else, “eat some pie.”)

A great, and I think very relevant quote to take away from this episode: “This isn’t the Feelings Olympics. Your feelings are valid. They’re real. They mean something to you. Perspective is important, but don’t let that stop you from also experiencing whatever you’re feeling.”
