This Might Get Uncomfortable

By Jason Wrobel & Whitney Lauritsen

There are many elements in our life that affect our well-being and there are many different ways that we can explore it. One avenue to optimal self-care is having open, honest conversations about what it means to be well. Navigate love and relationships, purpose and meaning, mental health and wellness, success and failure, and all of those things that make us human with Jason Wrobel and Whitney Lauritsen on This Might Get Uncomfortable. With a combined 25 plus years of professional experience in the health and wellness industries, Jason and Whitney will guide you through the confusion and the curiosity, the suffering and the unfulfilled potential, the question of why we're here and what we're doing. Join them each week as they share their perspectives on wellness and have radically authentic, insightful conversations about life with special guests. This Might Get Uncomfortable, so prepare to dive deep into the rabbit hole because nothing is off limits here.Life presents us with challenges every single day. Many of us struggle to make life feel worthwhile, meaningful and peaceful. We’re confronted in our relationships, careers, faith and the health of our body, mind, and emotions. We often have questions in our mind that go unanswered, and sometimes, we don’t even want the answers. We just want to have a really unfiltered discussion, let it all out, be truly heard so we can process our emotions. We want to talk about our deepest passions and secret longings, share our unfulfilled dreams and big goals, and inquire into the mysteries of life. If you’re in that place right now, we invite you to join Jason and Whitney here on This Might Get Uncomfortable.Jason, a.k.a.
