Getting healthier just got a little easier thanks to a local lady who’s launching a wellness talk show that you can watch, and interact with, from the comfort of your home.
“Healthwell Online Wellness Talk Show is a question and answer format presentation online (or on phone) with a wellness practitioner,” says Brenda Raymond-Ball, Owner and Business Director of Healthwell Enterprises. “This gives the audience an opportunity to learn about a topic from their home or car and engage with the practitioner to ask questions.”
The first talk show is happening on Wednesday, July 11, from 8-8:30am Eastern Time. “With busy summer schedules, we thought this would give people a chance to participate without needing to block or schedule time to get some place,” Raymond-Ball says.
The inspiration behind starting the free online talk show came from the events that Healthwell Enterprises has hosted in the past. “It’s really an extension of the wellness events that we host throughout the year,” she says. ”The goal overall is to connect consumers and wellness practitioners and the events give us the opportunity to educate and provide interaction between consumers and practitioners in bite-size pieces.”
The talk show has monthly topics and the July topic is, “How To Refresh Healthy Mind and Body Rhythms During The Summer.”
“Sue McLaughlin of Inner Source Living will take us back to our roots when we more naturally spent time outside during the warmer months and inside during the winter,” Raymond-Ball says. “She will teach us tips to stimulate different parts of the brain, helping us enjoy our summer even more and prepare to start our fall routines. The online show mainly attracts a demographic of women 40 and over, but the topic is relevant to parents, and would appeal to the younger crowd as well.”
There is a unique aspect to what the talk show does, compared to other broadcasts. “I think the combination of a Q&A format with a host focused on wellness education without pushing sales is not typical and gives participants a risk-free way to engage in learning,” she says.
Raymond-Ball hopes that the broadcasts enrich the community with education that lead to healthier lifestyles. “Educating even one consumer is a win; although the more participation, the better,” she says. “If we engage more consumers in exploration of wellness options through our talk show, we’re happy.”
Raymond-Ball feels that the online talk show concept is important for the community because it breaks down information without viewers getting overwhelmed. “Consumers interested in wellness often get overwhelmed with all of the information out there,” she says. “Our talk show breaks down a topic into basic questions and easy to digest pieces, helping people figure out where they might fit it.”
