Storyteller, podcaster, and psychotherapist Kimberly Jane Nasrul, or KJ as her friends and family call her, is a believer of the arts and creativity as means to maintain mental wellness.
This incorporation of the arts to explore mental health is exactly how I view biodiversity—the understanding that we all co-exist and everything is interconnected. Every choice we make is felt in our bodies, our lives, and our surroundings.
As a holistic nutritionist, I believe in the need to also prioritize mental wellness, especially in our time when the disconnection from community and nature has evolved into many of the issues we face today. There is deep wisdom in traditional medicine.
Here, KJ and I talk about the need to go play in the dirt and why it is essential to allow ourselves to slow down and pause to support our mental health.
