Weekend Sherpa Podcast: Take it Outside.

NEW EPISODE: How the Outdoors Affects Health & Wellness: As a new season comes and life continues with Covid variants, wildfires, and big changes to our lives as the result of a global pandemic, we've got to remember to take care of ourselves mentally and physically, and thankfully the outdoors still offers a respite for rejuvenation and proven health benefits. Brad and Holly discuss everything from meditation to local outdoor adventures to clear your head, and their favorite fall hikes for relaxing. Then they talk with Dr. Sean Amegadzie, a medical doctor in his second year residency specializing in psychiatry who is also an advocate of the benefits of nature and the outdoors to help improve individual health and wellness. Dr. Amegadzie ( IG @drseanmdmba )shares his thoughts on nature and parks as a prescription for well-being, along with some of his favorite outdoor adventures and activities to do in the San Francisco Bay Area and greater California, along with profound and illuminating insights about what we may take for granted about access to outdoor space, and the importance of belonging, representation, and safety, because the outdoors is for everyone.
