The wellness world is bursting with content, from diet wars to fitness, sleep, biohacking, and obscure niche areas. This revolving door of endless information can be overwhelming and only adds to the confusion for many individuals.
Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Colleen and Jason Wachob, founders of one of the world’s most trusted resources for wellness, mindbodygreen, to help clear up the confusion. Dhru, Colleen, and Jason talk about their individual health journeys and how their views on protein, plant-based eating, alcohol, caffeine, and resistance training have evolved over the past decade.
In addition, they talk about how social media platforms often promote extreme positions and why it is necessary for leaders in the wellness industry to engage in more amicable debates—even when they have opposing viewpoints. This approach would allow individuals to be exposed to all perspectives and feel more confident in making informed decisions for their own well-being.
Jason Wachob is the founder and Co-CEO of mindbodygreen and the author of WELLTH: How to Build a Life, Not a Resume. He has been featured in the New York Times, Entrepreneur, Fast Company, and Vogue, and has a BA in history from Columbia University, where he played varsity basketball for four years.
Colleen Wachob is the cofounder and Co-CEO of mindbodygreen. She graduated from Stanford University with degrees in international relations and Spanish and spent 10 years working at Fortune 500 companies, including Gap, Walmart, and Amazon. Jason and Colleen’s new book, The Joy of Well-Being: A Practical Guide to a Happy, Healthy, and Long Life, is available for preorder and set to be released on May 23, 2023.
