Welcome to Episode 95 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast we talk with mindset and wellness coach Megan Swan about the many aspects of a healthy lifestyle. Megan helps us explore the various components of health — what promotes health and what takes away from it. I believe that people want to be healthy; they just don’t know how to begin. As you move through your career and build your legacy, have you put off your own well-being? If so, you’ll appreciate what Megan has to say about topics like “bio individuality,” that is, the understanding that there’s no one perfect diet for every single person.


Megan’s approach — which she calls “sustainable integrative wellness” — promotes slow, gradual changes over time so that healthy habits become easily integrated into your lifestyle. It’s a good lesson for all of us — young and old — and essential if you want to avoid health problems that can hold you back from building your legacy.

So if you want to know:

  • How processed foods may be weighing down your energy
  • Why your shopping focus should be outside the supermarket
  • One easy trick for reading food labels more efficiently
  • The five aspects of a healthy nutritional lifestyle
  • How an everyday task like washing the dishes can be a mindful practice
  • What’s behind detoxification


About Megan Swan

As a first-time mother, Megan Swan felt exhausted, overwhelmed and impatient. After working with a health coach, she discovered the negative effects of the standard American diet on our health and well-being. She eliminated processed foods, refined sugar and gluten from her diet and found new levels of energy. She also became a wellness and mindset coach, specializing in detoxification, plant-based living, mindful practices and stress management.


Megan is convinced that, by making small but important lifestyle adjustments, you can prevent many chronic diseases. Her coaching approach emphasizes intuitive eating, exercise, mindful practices and understanding your own unique biorhythms and digestive cycles. Megan is also a yoga instructor, author and chef, having recently completed her chef certification in vegan or plant-based cuisine.
