EP010: Charlaine Jannerfeldt on the power of Nature to build confidence, healthy relationships & beautiful memories

May 7, 2018

My guest today is a nature enthusiast whose passion for the outdoors determines where and how she lives, what she does every day and how she and her husband raise their children. Charlaine Jannerfeldt is a Canadian transplant to Switzerland who can most often be found running, cycling, skiing, snowshoeing or otherwise roaming the peaks of the Jura mountains, taking as many women and kids along with her as she can. Charlaine knows deeply the power of Nature and how it can strength our minds and our bodies. Her mission is to get everyone outside and plugged into Vitamin N. 

I defy anyone listening to NOT want to get outside after listening to Charlaine's encouraging personal story and the tales of the women whom she accompanies over the peaks and valleys of Switzerland. In today's conversation we explore how the power of the body influences the mind and how we feel, how cultivating a strong positive internal voice can be a massive influence in the quality and path of our lives and, for those of us with small humans, what it takes to get our kids out the door and actually enjoying outdoor activities.

Whether you're an athlete or a couch surfer, get ready to slip your running shoes on and get moving.
