91: Kamea Chayne on How to Thrive
Kamea is the content curator of Kamea World and the author of Thrive, an evidence-based guide to healthy living. She is a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, and she is currently the Marketing Manager of Ethical Writers Co. Through her multi-disciplinary studies and her multicultural background, Kamea developed a particular interest in the relationship between human health and world sustainability—an interest that eventually led her to write her debut nonfiction book Thrive. By proposing a broadened perspective on health—one that encompasses the health of the mind, body, and our collective environment—Kamea hopes to empower her readers to cultivate meaning and create sustainability in all areas of life.
Highlights from this episode:
How to Thrive? Focus on the process, not just end results.
“By making more meaningful decisions in all areas of our lives, we can boost our mental health, physical health, and environmental health.”
“Happiness is about an ongoing state of mind.”
“It is the disconnect between us and the origins of our stuff that has led us to make decisions that we didn’t know were self-destructive.”
