Jessica Graham Robinson and Kirstin Pinit rap about how to keep you and your family healthy and happy this summer. Summers can be tough; the days stay lighter later, the kids are out of school, and they don’t have a consistent schedule, which in turn can wreak havoc on the parent’s schedules. It’s important to realize that you, as parents, have the power to decide what you want summer to look like for you and your family. Perhaps the summer routine looks completely different from the school year routine, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun, healthy, satisfying, and nourishing all the same.
Sam Norman shares some of her wisdom on the hot summer sun, sun exposure, and skin protection. We talk about Sam’s backgrounds in both Ayurveda and nursing and what they say about safe sun exposure and how to stay healthy this summer season. We naturally absorb vitamin D from sunlight and there are huge benefits of this vitamin, such as preventing Seasonal Affective Disorder, decreasing fatigue, and increasing our immune system.

He’s super down to Earth, he’s raised six children, and he’s been a chiropractor and Ayurvedic Practitioner for decades.

We touch base on a multitude of different topics, such as ketogenesis, the paleo diet — to eat wheat? Or not to eat wheat?— and fermented foods.
Are you action-oriented, or more of a daydreamer? In today’s show, Summer McStravick unpacks the art of conscious daydreaming, which she calls Flowdreaming, to tap into a deeper trust and flow with the universe that created us.
We explore why it’s far more productive to let go of the conscious, problem-solving mind. In Flowdreaming, the payoff for the practice of conscious daydreaming is the lived, embodied experience of aligning the future to the present. That may sound “out-there.” In actuality, it’s refreshingly efficient, fun, and easeful.
