1. Katharine Nohr: How to Ease Your Way Into Exercising Dr. Ron Kaiser 31:20

Going to the gym or running in the park might not seem appealing to some people, and one of the main reasons for it is because they are afraid. They are governed by the fear of being judged on how they look when they struggle doing the exercises or the way they run, so they prefer staying in their comfort zone and becoming couch potatoes.

But, doing exercise is one of the most important conditions of keeping your body healthy and strong.

This fear disappears once we make a habit of staying active, and only the first steps are the hardest, so make sure you put your shoes on and commit to at least 20 minutes a day. Just half an hour every day and you’ll gradually stop feeling ashamed and you might find it enjoyable.

In today’s episode, I am joined by Katharine, a woman of many talents, who not only professionally but personally also, creates the conditions for personal growth for herself and others – and she’s going to share some of her knowledge with us.

Katharine Nohr is an attorney, an author, and a fitness enthusiast who lives in Hawaii, but enjoys exploring the world at every opportunity. She is a former Honolulu Judge that now is practicing ESports and insurance law.
