This week’s guest is Dr. Debbie Rhea of the LIINK project, and this episode is going to BLOW YOUR MIND. I discovered Dr. Rhea in an NPR article talking about how she experimented with a school district in Texas, giving the students more recess time throughout the day to have unstructured play.

You know what happened? The kids improved in all areas of their educational lives!

BOOM!! THIS IS WHAT I’VE BEEN PREACHING! Exercise and a healthier lifestyle can change LIVES! It’s not always about shoving medication down kids’ throats and hoping for the best!

This is an AMAZING Episode! Thank you SO much, Dr. Rhea!
