Ep. 3.3 Healing Through Laughter with J.J. Gordon + Tucker Lucas

They say that laughter is the best medicine, and today's episode is here to prove that point. I sat down with the gents from the J.J. Meets World Podcast, J.J. Gordon, the charming host, and Tucker Lucas, the witty producer. Not only are these guys talented and hilarious, but they are also my longtime friends that are always fun to be around and connect with.

This episode is full of so many gems on the valuable role humor has during hard times, the universal language of laughter, the magic improv comedy, how to add “having fun” to your self-care practice, the importance of having judgment-free creative outlets, and when to know when it’s time to give your “always funny” friends a break.

You also get to hear stories from what I was like in High School. Let's just say I've come a long way.

podcast 7: megan gilger on the power of gratitude

“How the seasons change taught me that nothing ever lasts forever. That's both a reassuring thing, but also a moment to really realize that you have to live in the present. Seasons invite a way to look at how much we’ve grown.”

In this episode, Megan Gilger from The Fresh Exchange shares how her gratitude practice helps her live a more seasonal, intentional, and fulfilled life.
