Being Well Podcast: How to Get the Most Out of 2022

Being Well Podcast: How to Get the Most Out of 2022


Today on Being Well, Forrest and I reflect on 2021, and explore how to maximize what we get out of 2022. We discuss how to rest in our aspirations, claim identity-based change, reframe personal narratives, and form the habits that lead to a more grounded, meaningful life.

Thank you for listening over the last year; looking forward to much more!
