We’re so excited about today’s guest! Yung Pueblo is a meditator, writer, and speaker. He takes to social media to share his innermost thoughts and poetry. His content is inspiring, vulnerable, relatable, raw, and truthful. Seriously, if you don’t already follow him online — start now!
What is so special about Yung Pueblo is that he just started posting his thoughts on his blog, never really thinking it was going to become anything. But his work shows the true power of vulnerability and, in turn, attracted an audience of over 650K on Instagram alone! If you look at his entire feed, it’s innermost thoughts and he really shares his heart.
In this episode, we’re really focusing on this concept of vulnerability becoming your true power and Yung Pueblo’s mission of normalizing mental well-being and self-care. We also unpack concepts around spirituality, getting unstuck from past habits and patterns that are holding us back, finding your own method and tools for healing, the importance of carving out time for yourself to practice self-care, and learning how to discover your happiness through your inner world. It was an incredibly insightful episode that we hope you’ll all tune in for!
