Today’s guest is the remarkable Kristin Walter, a native Texan from the Houston area who has ended up as a real estate broker in Summit County, Colorado. In our conversation today, she explains why she moved to Colorado and what her daily life is like surrounded by all the natural beauty that the area has to offer.
Kristin is clearly passionate about her job as a realtor, which she explains as involving aspects of acting as a tour guide. In other words, she does more than simply help her clients find new homes; she also introduces them to a new lifestyle and helps them settle into a mindset full of ageless energy.
We also hear about some challenges that Kristin has faced, specifically regarding health. Her Lyme disease went undiagnosed for a full year, after which she took a two-year course of antibiotics. She has used both Western and alternative medicine to help her in her quest to regain vitality, and she discusses both in this episode. She also emphasizes the importance of getting outdoors and surrounding yourself in nature, and mentions the health benefits of forest bathing.
Don’t let Kristin’s Lyme disease diagnosis make you think she’s not healthy enough to live an active life! In addition to her career as a real estate agent, Kristin is a master diver and has recently won a rifle competition. In this chat, we discuss the ways in which these activities are fundamentally linked to a life of ageless energy.
