Hi, I am Donald Taylor, Jr., I am honored to be your host and barista on this Wellness Journey! Grab your steaming cup of coffee, sit back, and let me tell you a little about why I started this podcast, one of a bazillion podcasts out there!
Simple--if you do a basic websearch for "wellness" or "how to be healthy" or what not, you're going to find a LOT of "go take a walk in nature, take deep breaths, sit in a hot bubble bath, take up yoga." And while those are all excellent self-care tips--and some I even engage and suggest myself--they miss the mark slightly on encapsulating the essence of one's Wellness Journey. This journey often includes a stint or two (or 10) on what I call the Sickness Journey.
The "wellness" industry has left out a LOT of voices. Voices like mine, my guests, and maybe even yours.
Voices I need to hear. Voices that need to be heard.
THESE are the stories I have long needed to hear, and my guests are the voices that need to tell them.
Ooooh boy, do we have all day? No, no we do not. So suffice it to say my Wellness Journey has been quite varied, full of steps and missteps. From even before I was born, my Ancestors began crafting my Wellness Journey. And as I state in my episode with Cassey Helm (episode 18) we are creating the past for future generations! WOW! When put that way, I want to leave a legacy of health and wellness. I want to overcome my ancestral history of intermittent wellness and slide into intentional wellness. My history, much like many of your's, is full of addictions, poor choices, undesirable health indicators/outcomes. And that's beautiful, because it is an undeniable part of MY journey. And today, I get to make different choices, if I wish. But I am realizing I need a village and community to help me. And that village can be found in the guests and listeners of Double Shot of Wellness Podcast. Thank YOU for being part of my community of wellness!
