This episode begins with Meredith talking through two real life scenarios, one with the absence of pleasure and the other intentionally living a life with pleasure in everyday moments.

Pleasure can sound hedonistic and selfish in today’s world.  It can be seen as superfluous and irresponsible in light of challenges faced with a pandemic, economic recovery & the much needed conversations and actions around race relations and the Anti-Racism movement. 

But could being more available to pleasure actually help us meet and rise to challenges in a different and better way?  Should we stop restricting the flow of pleasure in our lives?  What would happen if we did?  It’s time to ‘get under the hood’ of how & why we limit pleasure in our daily lives.

We are suggesting that having some much needed Vitamin P (Pleasure) might be just what is required for your mind, body and soul at this time.  See if you agree…

At the end of the episode we provide some inquiry questions for you to come up with your own answers.
