Today’s episode was a ton of fun to put together! We decided, as a team, that we wanted to lay down our version (or interpretation) of health and wellness trends that we’re forecasting for 2019. On top of that, we’re also giving you our take on them, what we think is working, and whether or not we think they’ll stand the test of time.
My team is pretty incredible and I’m super excited to give you all the chance to hear from all of them — for the first time ever — all in one episode! With me is Dr. Yashar Khosroshahi, Dr. Anita Davis, and Heather Allen.
We seriously had a ton of fun recording this — maybe a little bit too much fun. We get into biohacking; talked food (from cheeseburgers to adaptogens); and discussed concepts like mindfulness, meditating, and challenging growth. We hope you’ll join us all for the first episode back in 2019!

“When we’re in a state of gratitude, we’re not in a state of fear … or anger … or anxiety. … So anyone who wants to understand or feel what it is to be in a parasympathetic, rest and digest state, practicing gratitude is a great way of starting.”
— Dr. Yashar Khosroshahi
“I just want people to get real with what they need to be doing [and] what’s realistic for them to [actually] execute on.” — Heather Allen
“[Biohacking tools] should not be a substitute for actually getting to know your own body.” — Meghan Walker
“Most often, we struggle to be transparent with others because we’re not willing to be transparent with ourselves.” — Dr. Yashar Khosroshahi
“Sometimes these things that are stressing us out are really just fixations in our own mind — and that’s the idea of meditation; you can separate yourself from what it is [you’re] creating for [yourself].” — Meghan Walker
“Adaptogens work on not just the cortisol level, but in multiple ways to help your body resist stress.” — Dr. Anita Davis
