Welcome to the turbulence!

Life isn’t smooth. There are bumps in the road. For most of us, life isn’t a perfectly curated lifestyle shoot.

The ClearOut leans into this imperfection. It looks calmly at the endless contradictions and complications that come with being human. Every episode is both an expression of the examined life, and a rigorous engagement with emotional and psychological wellbeing.

In essence, it is an ongoing longitudinal study of trying to do better. Of trying to cope better. Of trying to understand better.

Finally, it is an antidote to the quick-hit, white-noise screech of the online experience, because wellness isn’t a bite-sized aesthetic. Wellness is owning the mess of our scramble through life.

This is The ClearOut. This is wellness with attitude.
