Episode 9: Mental Wellness and Healthy Eating with Karina Fernandez of Live Well, Live Golden, and Well & Golden Eats

In this episode, I interview Karina Fernandez of Live Well, Live Golden and Well & Golden Eats, a wellness blog and Instagram account focused on inspiring people with simple, nutritious recipes and tips on emotional wellness. Karina and I have been friends since high school and have both braved the challenges of experiencing the world as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). Due to the fact that it is a trait that isn’t widely known about or accepted, being highly sensitive presents unique challenges that we discuss in this episode, as well as how we have coped with this condition/ability/gift/curse. We discuss the pros and cons of being highly sensitive, how to know if you are, and how to deal with an overstimulating world and people who don’t quite understand the severity of being highly sensitive, anxiety, and other mental health challenges. Karina gives great advice on self-care and the importance of accepting oneself without judgment, as well as actionable tips to overcome anxiety.
