Managing Stress with Dr. Jen Huberty
Sep 01, 2020 Season 2 Episode 4
Brittny King

Today I’m talking with such an incredible woman. She is Dr. Jennifer Huberty, an Associate professor at Arizona State University in the College of Health Solutions, Exercise and Wellness program and Research Scholar in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at University of Arizona, College of Medicine. She is also an Adjunct professor of medicine at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine in Scottsdale, AZ and Mays Cancer Center/MD Anderson in San Antonio Texas. So to say she has some authority on the topic of managing stress would be an understatement.

We Talk

  • Improving health behaviors with eating, yoga, meditation, and more
  • How we can change our perceptions around diet and exercise 
  • Having self-compassion when it comes to diet and exercise goals
  • Setting our goals based on societal beliefs versus personal beliefs (extrinsic vs. intrinsic)
  • The relationship between weight & self-worth
  • Intrinsic versus extrinsic motivation
  • Finding inner peace and health after experiencing trauma (TW: stillbirth)
  • And so much more!

On top of the abundant knowledge Dr. Huberty shares in this episode she also researches how using digital interventions (online, mobile phone apps) to deliver complementary approaches (e.g., yoga, meditation, physical activity) can improve mental and physical health in women (i.e., middle-aged, stillbirth mothers, pregnant women) and blood cancer patients. She works closely with industry and is currently the Director of Science for the mobile meditation app, Calm. Dr. Huberty is also the founder and director of Fit Minded, an innovative online physical activity adherence program for adult women (www.befitminded.com), is co-author of the book entitled, Designing Effective Physical Activity Interventions and has published 130 peer-reviewed papers. She also serves as the Co-Editor for the journal Translational Behavioral Medicine Dr. Huberty has been funded over $6 million in grants from entities including National Institutes of Health, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and UNICEF. Dr. Huberty loves to spend time with her husband and two boys, her two rescue dogs, and/or doing yoga.

ACTION STEP: Try to journal SOMETHING POSITIVE right before bed. Not just writing to write or writing about your day but think about something simple and positive (can be as simple as liking the color of your nail polish!). Something real, something simple, something positive and write it down.
