Nathan Agin is a former actor turned modern day nomad who shares his healthy living practices on his blog Nonstop Awesomeness.
I met Nathan at WDS2012 in July. He organised a number of unofficial meet ups, including a healthy lunch and meditation sessions and we talked about how healthy eating and exercise can have a dramatically positive effect on our mental health (see the Mental Health Foundation website for more on diet and mental health).
This is a man who definitely ‘walks the talk’ when it comes to healthy living, and as I’ve now committed to a Year of Clarity (i.e. no alcohol!) what better time to get advice on that topic.
I chatted to Nathan in sunny L.A. (via the wonders of Skype) and asked him about his exciting plans for a new show celebrating healthy food and travel which recently placed #6 (out of 121 ideas) in a recent Good.Is contest.
In this 25 minute video (the first video interview on CMC!) Nathan talks about:
Why being healthy and travelling the world don’t have to be mutually exclusive
How he is filming a new web TV show spreading this message
His background as an actor and how it has lead him to where he is now
The importance of exercise and nutrition/diet plus grounding practices like meditation in maintaining sanity on the road
What the term ‘Nonstop Awesomeness’ really means to him
Note: the audio is slightly out of sync when I speak but is fine when Nathan speaks. No idea why!
