About How To Be Fine:

In a world where every influencer is trying to teach you how to be better, faster, and richer, hosts Kristen and Jolenta want to help you feel just a little closer to fine. 

On every episode of How to Be Fine, Kristen and Jolenta dish on the latest wellness trend (what they gleaned from it and what they ditched) and then they deep dive into listener questions and offer up some advice on how to be fine. 

Luckily, Kristen and Jolenta have tried every hot self-help trend on for size, so they know what practices tend to actually help, and they’re finally ready to answer all the questions they’re often asked about wellness, self-help, and how to deal in general.

They’re here for you when all this “power of positive thinking” shit doesn’t work and your favorite mindfulness maven has been outed as a fraud. And let’s be real, that’s happening a lot. 

So if you feel betrayed by the advice of wellness gurus, are adrift in a sea of books offering empty productivity promises, or are sick of being told to visualize your goals, pull up a chair, take a breath and let's get closer to fine.
