As health professionals, we all know the importance of good sleep but how often do we include in into our wellness initiatives or address it at the workplace? On podcast # 7 I interviewed sleep researcher Dr. Rebecca Robbins and I thought we should re-address this health factor.

Today we talk about:

  • What stands in our way of getting enough sleep
  • What happens when people don’t get enough of it
  • We talk lions, bears and wolves
  • He leaves us with his top sleep tips and I’ve implemented one of these right after our interview.

You’ll learn more about my sleep habits then I’m sure you care about and we learn how Dr. Breus's sleep habits defy some common sleep advice.

How often do you incorporate or highlight doing good, giving, volunteering, mentoring, etc. within your wellness offerings? It turns out that giving can impact your well-being.

Today’s guest is Dr. Stephen Post. Stephen is an interesting fellow with a lot of knowledge around the benefits to doing good.

In this interview, he defines what doing good means, the health benefits, if you can overdo doing good and how to incorporate doing good into the workplace. Stephen also makes fun of my southern accent and leaves us with a joke that my 4 year old loved.

Ed Harrold’s mastery in the science of mindful breathing has guided him to apply conscious breathing practices in corporate performance coaching, fitness & athletic training, healthcare trainings, stress reduction and overall health and well-being.

Ed is a contributing health & wellness editor for many publications including Huffington post, Thrive Global, MindBodyGreen, PTOnTheNet, & Corporate Wellness Magazine.

When Ed first reached out I was skeptical (because that’s me) that he could offer something new about breathing and mindfulness to you guys. Let’s just say he delivered! In fact, I was engrossed in what he was saying and kinda forgot it wasn’t a private conversation and I ask an off topic conversation about my childhood and how I was raised.

Other than that, we discussed using therapeutic mindful breathing as a tool for well-being, how it can help you achieve a state of flow, and how you can incorporate these techniques into your day.

Most of you have probably heard of or are members of WELCOA (Wellness Council of America). My 5th podcast interview was with the President of WELCOA, Ryan Picarella, where he shared his vision for changing the wellness conversation.

The change in leadership (from former President, David Hunnicutt) has also brought in new blood to help Ryan execute on the organization’s strategy. Todays guest is Sara Rauch, the Director of Strategy and Planning at WELCOA. Sara tells us a bit about the inner workings of WELCOA, some upcoming updates to the Well Workplace Checklist and Award, why WELCOA’s a neutral force in the market and she shares a deeply personal story that led her into the field of organizational/industrial psych and wellness.

Sara mentions several names in the industry worth noting and I’m happy to say almost all of them are past podcast guests!
