2020 was a crazy fucking year. Thousands of people were essentially told by the government that their careers and livelihoods were nonessential and unimportant. Total mind-fuck. So it makes a lot of sense that even as the world re-opens, your confidence might be completely shattered. We get it. Want to know a secret? You ARE essential, and what you…
 
“Let whoever think whatever.” When it comes to showing up authentically, whether online or in our real lives, it’s a lot easier said than done. Intellectually, we understand that we can’t control what other people think. We know we should just be our true selves. But in reality, it takes a lot of courage! Vulnerability is scary, but if you want to …
 
Let’s be honest, there’s a lot to be angry about in this world. But what good does your anger actually do? Sure, it can feel good to have something to fight for, but are you making your own life happier? Are you changing the world in a positive way? Your anger can feel right, but its often holding you back in more ways than one. We’re firm believer…
 
Can you do ALL the things? Sure! But there’s one major caveat: you can’t do them all at once. There will always be more things to do, and yes, you probably “should” do a lot, but it’s not possible to do it all. And when you expect that level of perfection from yourself, you are unwittingly setting yourself up for failure. At the end of the day, you…
 
Could someone really not be “ready” for a relationship, or is that just code for not being into you? And is it a bad idea to get involved with someone who says they aren’t quite ready? When it comes to matters of the heart, it all comes down to trust: it really is the only thing we have control over. Trust what others tell you, and trust yourself t…
 
Body insecurity might be one of the most universal feelings women experience—and hey, men aren’t exempt either. Society places a lot of importance on the way we look, and the language we use to talk about our bodies often skews towards toxicity. A body is just a body. It’s not inherently good, nor inherently bad. Insecurities plague almost everyone…
 
Time is a luxury, one that many people say they can’t afford. But we’d like to argue that time is a luxury you can’t afford to ignore. If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that if you ignore things when they get bad, life will find a way to force you to take some time. Danny-J had a hell of a year, and at this point is an expert on taking time out to t…
 
It’s often said that the things you’re most sensitive about, or the things that you’re most afraid of are the things that tend to show up over and over again. If you’re always worried about your forehead, or your cluttered home, or your brand new business… chances are, you’re leaving the door wide open for the peanut gallery to come in and make sna…
 
We’re here in this life to grow, but that doesn’t mean it will always be easy. Pain is often inevitable, and we become many different versions ourselves over the course of our lives. If you’ve been through something traumatic—be it heartbreak, loss, infidelity, sickness, etc—then you know how hard it is to become the New You. If you need some stren…
 
Life has changed a lot for us since the birth of The Best Life Podcast. Let’s be honest, just a few years ago we were all-aboard the Hot Mess Express. Things might be different now—and in some cases, a lot better—but the principles of the Best Life remain the same. It’s all about freedom, perspective, and choice, even in your darkest days. The hist…
 
Practicing vulnerability online can be scary as shit. The internet is known for being full of nosy, judgmental, and over-critical people who are on the look-out for people to take down. But the internet is also full of caring, empathetic, and understanding people. Sharing the scary and hard parts of life can be rewarding, too. So what’s the line be…
 
Why bother with dating if marriage isn’t your end goal? Well, there are a lot of reasons… Marriage is great, but it isn’t the final prize. There are plenty of great relationships outside of marriage, and plenty of terrible relationships within marriage. So what’s the point? You just have to decide for yourself. Be up-front and honest with your inte…
 
We’ve all heard it before: “You’ve changed.” Uh… yeah, Brenda, of-fucking-course we have. Why haven’t you?! In all seriousness, change is inevitable and the person you are will vary drastically over the different seasons of your life. We all find ourselves starting over and reinventing ourselves from time to time. And that’s okay! Its a GOOD thing.…

2021 is the year we both turn 40, and frankly? We’re pissed. Okay, okay we’re just joking (but also kind of not). The past 10 years have really felt like 100, and we have the physical and emotional scars to prove it. Through it all, we learned a lot, and we’ve become better people, friends, and entrepreneurs. Tune in to today’s episode to find out …
 
Divorce is lonely, complicated, and messy. It’s hard-as-fuck to go through, and support is needed, even in the most amicable of endings. If you have a friend or a loved one going through a divorce, you may be at a loss for what to do or say—and we get it. There is no guide on getting through it. Today we’re discussing what others did that helped us…
 
Farting killed our marriages. Well, not really… but sort of. Going to the bathroom is human. Farting, burping, and other bodily noises are human—but that doesn’t make them sexy. When you spend a lot of time with a significant other, you want to feel comfortable—maybe to you that means letting burps fly, or peeing with the door open. But maybe those…
 
We’re LIVE… Well, sort of. A few weeks ago, we hosted a live Q&A session in the Best Life Podcast Facebook group (side note: if you’re not in the group already, what are you even doing?!) where we answered some of your questions in real time. Tune in to this episode to hear us talk about self-care, aging parents, entrepreneurship, and turning aroun…
 
Have you ever hated your best friend’s boyfriend? Or maybe your sibling married a total pain in the ass? Whatever the situation looks like for you, we’re sure there’s been a time where someone you love has a less-than-stellar significant other. So, what do you do? You can say something, or you can just hide your feelings… but you better be prepared…
 
Whenever you put yourself online, you open yourself up to criticism, and we’re no exception to the rule. The Best Life Podcast got a not-quite-positive, but not-quite-negative review recently, and it got us thinking… and even though our feelings may have been hurt a little, we needed it. A bad review isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it just …
 
Have you ever travelled alone? It may seem daunting, but the times we have spent exploring the world on our own have been some of our favorite moments in life. Nothing gives toy perspective quite like experiencing how the other half lives. With restrictions everywhere lifting, now may be your chance to experience a brand new city, country, or cultu…
 
How long does it take to heal? Well… we don’t know. What we do know is that there’s no simple answer. Healing takes time, but not only that: it takes action. Danny-J and Jill are no strangers to broken hearts or broken bodies. Over the years, we’ve had to learn as we go about the best ways to heal, and in this episode we discuss the actions that ha…
 
What do you think of when you think of family? Is it a husband and wife with 2.5 kids? Maybe it’s you, and a dog, and a few dozen house plants. Lately we’ve been reading John and Julie Gottman’s “Eight Dates” with our partners and some really important, nuanced conversations have come out of it. Family doesn’t have to look the same for everyone. Ev…
 
WTF is Clubhouse? Over the last few months, Clubhouse has been everywhere. From Elon Musk to Paris Hilton, everyone seems to be hopping in on the hype, but what the hell is it even for? Luckily for us, Danny was an early adopter and has been figuring out how to navigate for the rest of us. If you find yourself feeling some Clubhouse FOMO and want t…
 
As women, we often feel a lot of judgement around our bodies, and it doesn’t help when strangers and loved ones make comments. We’re too fat, too skinny, too muscular, too weak, haven’t lost the baby weight fast enough, eat too much or too little… the list goes on. The feeling that we need to justify the way we look or defend our bodies is bullshit…
