Nita Sweeney is an award-winning author, runner, and meditator who champions movement as part of a regimen for mental and physical wellness. Naturally this was a great fit for the Walk Talk Challenge which invites women entrepreneurs to talk about their goals and challenges while walking.

One of the things I often say is, “Remember, depression hates a moving target. Can you just get out of bed…”

In this episode Nita shares the driving factor behind her running, writing, meditation, and advocacy. She also encourages our listeners and members of her Mind, Move, Movement group to incorporate movement (of any kind) into their day. From writing, meditation, and exercise to getting out of bed, making a meal and more. Learn more about Nita and stay connected with her on Twitter.

Due to tech gremlins, this podcast episode was recorded twice. Once outside while Nita was walking in the ravine near her neighborhood and Jennifer was walking around her house due to extreme levels of tree pollen. The second recording was done inside on our computers and is the released episode. Needless to say we did not let tech gremlins stop us. When there is a message and mission as powerful as this one, we will do whatever it takes to make sure it is available for the everyone to hear far and wide. A big THANK YOU to Nita for her flexibility and willingness to give recording this podcast episode one more try.
