For some people, total wellness is something that comes to them as part of a wellness kick during adulthood.  That’s not true for Jonathan, he has been experimenting with ways to improve his body and mind since finding a workout book in his Dad’s closet as a kid.  That discovery set him on a lifelong journey of experiments to improve his physical and mental wellness to help him live the life he wants to lead.  A life that has led to co-founding a business to help others improve their wellness and lives.

In this episode of Silent Superheroes, we’ll hear how Jonathan started his wellness journey.  He’ll share how two moments of astounding clarity helped him fend off addiction and depression.  He’ll share the list of unusual things he does right now to develop physical and mental wellness.  Most important of all he’ll tell us how his wellness journey led him to co-found Joon as a way to help employers meet their employees wellness needs, wherever the employee is on their journey.
