I love to speak about nutrition, stress resilience, sleep, human interaction, social media, technology, and how to make healthy lifestyle choices in this crazy world. I’ve presented to medical professionals, corporate audiences, Olympians, trainers, dieticians… but mostly, to people like you who just want to feel better, have more energy, and be confident in the choices they make to improve their health.
If you have an interview request or want me to speak for your event, send me a message. Read on to learn what I like to talk about the most.
NUTRITION & STRESS
Most trends focus on making you look different instead of actually being different. Instead, make informed, healthier food decisions, and listen to what your body, not the scale or mirror, is telling you. I talk about how to navigate the complex landscape of nutrition to improve our lives, not just shine up the surface.
MORE SOCIAL LESS MEDIA
Something’s not right in our social lives. You feel it too, right? We’re “connected” to hundreds of “friends,” but not in a way that keeps us from feeling alone. I love to talk about ways to reduce distractions and change our relationship with technology to create more meaningful face-to-face connections with people.
DISCONNECT TO RECONNECT
Buy this! Listen to me! Ding! This constant barrage of blinking lights and notifications is collectively sapping our ability to focus on each other. As self-aware humans who want a better world, for ourselves and our children, we need to create more focused relationships with technology. I talk about behaviors that can make our lives less distracting and more meaningful.
The 4 Season Solution
Not long ago, our ancestors lived according to the changing seasons, adjusting how they slept, ate, moved, and even socialized throughout the year. But today, we are more disconnected from the natural world than ever.
We wake before the sun rises and go to bed long after it sets. We eat tropical fruits in the dead of winter. We exercise in climate-controlled environments. We connect virtually instead of emotionally. Our lives are frenetic, stressful, and exhausting. In other words, we are living in a chronic summer, and it’s killing us.
Packed with crucial research and clear-eyed writing, The 4 Season Solution provides a new, sustainable model for living in sync with the natural world.
By making small but meaningful changes to the four keys of wellness—how you sleep, eat, move, and connect—over the course of the year, you will reclaim your health, regain your energy, and let go of excess weight.
At once a bold new philosophy and an accessible plan to live well all year long, The 4 Season Solution is a new health paradigm for an increasingly unhealthy world.
