Taking a break to be still in a world that doesn't stop moving is a crucial act of self-love and self-care. A woosah is a reminder that you are alive and strong. Mindful activity, healthy habits, and positive conscious consumption of media, like podcasts, are essential for promoting mental fitness. So... welcome to your Weekly Woosah. This podcast is based in the Northeastern Seabord, and is hosted by August Lim, a 9th generation certified reiki practitioner under Dr. Mikao Usui. Each week, I'll be bringing you either an on-the-go guided mediation, a discussion on wellness backed by modern, evidence-based research, or tips on how to live a happier, more grounded life.
