Episode 68: Air Health with Dr. Erika Maria Moseson

On this week’s episode I chat with Dr. Erika Maria Moseson, a lung and ICU doctor in Oregon. Her phrase for health and wellness is air health. She says don’t light things on fire and breathe them into your lungs. This applies to tobacco, diesel, forests and more. She shares how as a lung and ICU doctor she realized how many patients she saw in the critical care setting due to people breathing in unhealthy air. She discussed how that is compounded by economic instability and racial inequities. We chat about vaping, the tobacco industry, wildfires, diesel and more. Her advice to others is to be an advocate for yourself and for your patients. She hosts her own podcast, Air Health Our Health, so please head over to her podcast and take a listen!

Episode 65: Solocast on 365 Days

Today is my birthday, and I’m releasing a solo episode reflecting on 365 days. I’ve journaled and blogged a lot over the years, and thought it would be a fun trip down memory lane to read some old entries of a journal I wrote in over 8 years ago. I entitled it 365 Days of Zen because at the time, I was reading a book of daily quotes from mindfulness leader, Thich Nhat Hanh. When we are in the moment and feeling overwhelmed, it is challenging to remember how far we have come. I don’t like to look “backwards” often, but when I do take a moment to reflect on and read some of the things I’ve written years ago, it is a gentle reminder that yes, I have come a long way. I hope that you enjoy listening to some of my old writings! And yes, today I am allowing myself to celebrate ME!
