Episode 2.02 - Bill McKibben

I'm so happy to bring you this episode from the infancy of The Peace of Persistence, as promised, as a follow up to last week's episode on caring for the planet. Meet Bill McKibben, "unlikely activist," author, and co-founder of 350.org. Although some things have changed since this early interview, Bill's message continues to ring true. 

I am so grateful to Bill McKibben for this chance to meet and talk about our global community and the future we all can create for ourselves moving forward. Come back in 2 weeks, when we'll begin our series on motivation. I can't wait to introduce you to some exciting studies on the way we respond to expectations in life. 

The 5 Ways to Wellbeing #5 - Give

We've made it to number 5 of the Centre for Wellbeing's Five Ways to Wellbeing! I thought this would be a really hard episode for me, as I don't perceive of myself as someone who gives back as much as I can. Thankfully, I was wrong, and we can still grow together. Join me in this episode, where I discuss where and how we can give as part of our regular lives. 

If you missed the last episode on taking notice, check that out below. After my conversation with Charles Seaford from the Centre for Wellbeing at the New Economics Foundation, I wanted to delve in deeper into their simple ways to lead a more fulfilling life, the 5 Ways to Wellbeing. Simply put, when you take the time to incorporate each of these practices into your life on a regular basis, you contribute to your own happiness and well-being! Stay tuned in 2 Fridays for our bonus episode, where we tie it all together and offer a bonus way to well-being. 

Challenges 8-)

Challenges are absolutely crucial - on a daily basis! Not the kind that are thrust upon us, but the ones we give ourselves, both small and large. 

Host Abigail Wright discusses the importance of challenging oneself every day to maximize well-being. How life can change you - and you can change your life for the better.
