She is the co-founder and CEO of mindbodygreen and co-author (with her husband Jason) of the new book, The Joy of Well-being, a treasure trove of wisdom with insights into living a life filled with wellness and joy. Colleen joins me today to discuss finding your true purpose, prioritizing a healthy lifestyle (physically, mentally, financially), and growing alongside a community.
Our chat primarily focuses on connection and how nurturing your human connections and cultivating community will actually extend your life expectancy. We talk about how to cut out toxic relationships, focus on what brings you joy, and connect with like-minded people. Plus, we touch on her incredible new book and how it’s a roadmap for those seeking a life that resonates with their unique definition of well-being.
