I love hearing from these amazing teens and young adults, so inspiring. And the brief mediations are just what I need for quick and actionable focus on the present moment.

Actionable and accessible!!

Everyone needs to listen to this podcast! The interviews are full of interesting and practical science and tips and the solo short meditations are so calming, accessible (her voice and pace are amazing!) And easy to fit into your day. I love the mix of both!
