This episode of The Life Stylist comes to you straight from MindBodyGreen HQ, the home of all things healthy living. Our guest and tour guide through the world of wellness is Jason Wachob, CEO of MBG.

Excruciating back pain led Jason to yoga – and that opened the doors to a whole new world of physical, emotional, and spiritual health. So Jason started studying wellness science, and he realized that being healthy isn’t eating low-fat cottage cheese with Splenda every morning. Who knew?

True wellness is a blend of mental, physical, spiritual, emotional, and environmental wellbeing – and all of these things are interconnected! That’s why MindBodyGreen is one word, not three. You can’t meditate and eat organic all day and then throw toxic products all over your body. It just doesn't work.

We get into everything from the (sometimes questionable) marketing within the wellness industry to monetizing a fulfilling passion to the questionable promotion of psychoactive drugs as a path to enlightenment.

It’s a fun and eye-opening ride, so strap in and get ready to learn.
