Unleashed Podcast Interview with Colleen Pelar

Connecting with a Wolf in the Alaskan Wilderness

Sheila Newenham, DVM, talked with Colleen Pelar about exploration. The whole world is waiting for you. Where do you want to go? What do you want to see? What can you learn from being open to new experiences?

It’s no accident that most of your strongest memories and milestone events occur in the first half of your life. For many people, it’s the biggest period of growth and exploration. 

Once you hit adulthood, it’s not uncommon to live a life filled with habits and routines, which can often make you feel like you’re stuck in a rut.

How can you break out of that? How can you use new experiences to make you feel more alert, more alive? What can you do that would make you feel less judgmental, less reactive?

That’s the topic in this episode of UNLEASHED (at work & home) with Sheila Newenham, veterinarian and nature photographer.
