Amy Baglan: That’s a Wrap! Wellness 3.0 Season 1

Fabriq CEO Amy Baglan reflects on the most impactful conversations she’s had with our wonderful guests so far on Wellness 3.0.

Episode Overview

In our final episode of season 1, we wanted to leave you with some inspiration from the best memories and the most actionable insights that we’ve learned from our incredible guests over the past few months. We look back at some of the most impactful conversations that Amy’s had to help us pave the way for a more socially well, deeply connected world. 

At Fabriq, we are on a mission to empower people to make meaningful connections everyday. This means looking closely at our society’s social health, fighting the disconnection epidemic, and finding ways that bring us all closer together. We really need this to thrive.

Some highlights include:

  • Melody Warnick on how getting involved in a community project – or starting your own – can jumpstart your connection to community and people. 
  • Why you shouldn’t wait to introduce yourself to your neighbors, including Shaylyn Romney Garrett’s touching story of two of her neighbors that dealt with death of family members.
  • Casper ter Kuile shared how rituals historically have played such a big part in community and connection, especially the examples of Amish and Mormon communities. 
  • What if we really believed that being honest with someone wouldn’t hurt them? Sue Heilbronner declared that being honest with someone you care about will be of service to them and of service to your relationship. 
  • The phrasing of questions can make or break a connection and the conversation that follows. Chad Littlefield urged us to ask questions that start with “how” or “what” instead of “why”. 
  • Mark Shapiro talked about taking on his personal challenge to send more voice and video messages and why that’s so much more impactful than sending text messages or emails. Amy did this challenge herself and found it extremely gratifying!
  • On the note of personal challenges, Jeff Howard runs a men’s group in Boulder, CO and explains what they are, how you can join, and how you can start one. Amy even took his advice and is starting a Women’s Group! Anyone can do it, all it takes is the intention.

We have to also give one last shout out to the person who produced the podcast, Greer Shellow. Greer learned how to produce a podcast along with the dozens of other responsibilities on her plate, and we are so grateful for her. We’ll miss her so much and wish her the best in her new chapter of life in Detroit, MI. 

We hope you enjoyed the first season of Wellness 3.0, and have taken on a few of the weekly challenges from our guests to improve your social wellness. We can’t wait to share what we have in store for season 2! 

This Week’s Guest

Amy Baglan

Your host, Amy Baglan, is a passionate entrepreneur on a mission to bring more meaningful connection into the world. Guided by her belief that relationships are the fastest way to personal growth, she founded MeetMindful for the millions of mindful singles who desire deep, intentional relationships.

She’s now taking the loneliness and disconnection epidemic head-on with a new way of thinking about wellness with the Wellness 3.0 podcast as well as Fabriq, our sister app, designed to help people weave tighter relationships with the people who matter most.

It means deepening our existing relationships, building a stronger more secure support system, and interacting with communities that share our values, and help us feel more purpose and contribution. This is why we’re calling this Wellness 3.0. We want to bring attention to the fact that — just as much as mental and physical health — social health is a big deal.

Debra Fine: Ways to Have Better Small Talk

Whether it’s a party, a networking event, or just entertaining friends and family, we all engage in small talk. Debra Fine, guru of all things small talk, tells us how to start conversations, ask better questions, and even how to exit a conversation with grace.

Our Mission

Ditching Disconnection, Together

These days, most folks find it easier to lock eyes with a screen than with another person. The World Health Organization ranks social well-being right up there with physical and mental health, yet most of us struggle to maintain the healthy social lives that we need to thrive. We started Wellness 3.0 to bring awareness to this phenomenon and discover how we can solve it, together.
