Why Success Is Not What We Think It Is with Gwyneth Paltrow

Why Success Is Not What We Think It Is | This episode is brought to you by Paleovalley, BiOptimizers, and Uqora

One thing COVID taught me, albeit the hardest way possible, was to slow down. I used to be hopping on a plane once or twice a week with a booked schedule daily. It was fun and sometimes exhilarating, but also exhausting. After this last year, I’ve learned to appreciate how to go through life more slowly and mindfully, appreciating small moments like pouring a good cup of coffee or the way the light floods through my window. On today’s episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy, I enjoyed sitting down with my good friend Gwyneth Paltrow, who can relate to hitting pause on the chaos of life to redefine joy and health. 

Oscar®-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow is also a bestselling cookbook author, singer, and entrepreneur. In 2008, Paltrow founded goop from her kitchen table. goop has grown into a lifestyle brand devoted to helping women make their own choices count in the various facets of their lives—from style, travel, work, food, and beauty to physical, mental, and spiritual wellness. goop now has a tightly edited digital shop, a book imprint, permanent and pop-up retail experiences, a live event series, and its own product lines, including skincare, fragrances, apparel, bath and body, and supplements.
