    EP 041 - How to Sleep Better at Night Naturally with Dr. Michael Breus, the Sleep Doctor

    Sleep is something we all need, whether we like it or not. Almost everyone has questions about sleep and wants to improve it. As we know, not sleeping well for even one night affects us the next day.

    Many have experienced poor sleep for weeks, months, or years, leading to emotional and physical issues. Yet, people are sleeping worse than ever, with problems like sleep apnea and insomnia on the rise (Dr. Breus discusses these in our interview).

    Modern life, with its constant noise from cities, cars, planes, and early/late work hours, has worsened sleep quality globally.

    An episode on how to sleep better at night naturally is long overdue. I reached out to Dr. Michael Breus, the sleep doctor, to educate us and provide tips on better sleep.

    EP 040 - What to Say to a Suicidal Person | Lessons from a Crisis Support Worker

    EP 040 - What to Say to a Suicidal Person | Lessons from a Crisis Support Worker

    As someone who once struggled with suicidal thoughts, I understand the importance of raising awareness for suicide prevention.

    Every year, 703,000 people take their own lives, and this staggering number highlights the urgent need for education on how to support those in crisis. In this interview on the Inner Path Seekers podcast, Rebecca Hooke, a crisis support worker at Lifeline Australia, offers practical advice and valuable strategies for having conversations with someone who might be suicidal.

    By learning what to say, we can make a difference and help reduce these heartbreaking statistics. If you are here to learn more about this topic and how to be there for someone, thank you for doing so—truly.

    EP 038 - The Healing Power of Nature | Meet Dr. Melissa Lem, The Doctor Who Prescribes Nature

    EP 038 - The Healing Power of Nature | Meet Dr. Melissa Lem, The Doctor Who Prescribes Nature

    Many are familiar with the age-old wisdom that emphasizes the positive impact of nature on one’s well-being. Those who have immersed themselves in the tranquility of forests, mountains, oceanfronts, or other natural settings can attest to the profound sense of wellness they impart.

    Beyond the intuitive understanding that nature feels good, there is actually also an extensive amount of research spanning over a decade that substantiates the remarkable impact it has on both our physical and mental health.

    To delve in-depth into this topic, I invited, as a guest of our show, Dr. Melissa Lem—a family physician who is an internationally recognized proponent of nature and health, and who is also the Director of PaRx. An initiative of the BC Parks Foundation, PaRx is driven by healthcare professionals who want to improve patients’ health by connecting them to nature.
