On this episode of the Zest Wellness Podcast, we invited Dominic Warne from Cricket West Indies to talk about the many different aspects of cricket. At Colonial Group International we work closely with Cricket West Indies as a partner and that includes Dominic, Director of Commercial, Marketing & Communications. He is very passionate about cricket and Cricket West Indies as you can tell in this episode.

Dominic has been involved in the world of cricket for a very long time and loves the game for the social aspects, the fitness, the community, and the mental and physical skills you gain from the sport.  Listen in as our conversations flow from the importance of health and wellness to Cricket West Indies to which physical skills are important in the game of cricket, based on the various player positions. Dominic also touches on how Cricket West Indies is a beacon of light for communities, symbolizing unity and teamwork. We hope you enjoy this episode with Dominic as much as we did!

The "Wellness from Home" podcast series is one of the many online wellness resources Zest Wellness is distributing right now to help you stay on track with your wellness journey.

In this fourth episode, we sit down with Zest Wellness team member, Donovan Ingraham. Of many skills, Donovan is trained in food management and choices surrounding behavior change, linking knowledge and skills to his personal wellness philosophy, “Why wait for tomorrow when you can start today!”.

Join us as we dive into the wellness benefits of cooking, the basics of nutrition, and many other interesting topics and free nutrition resources with Donovan. Please enjoy this episode of the "Wellness from Home" podcast series and be sure to share what you’ve learned with friends and family.

Donovan is known throughout the Bahamas community from his love for tennis, involvement in the 2017 Deepak Chopra wellness showcase, and the annual Fun Run/Walk events, which he was Chairman of in 2018. Two favourites for Donovan are spinach and The Alchemist. Lastly, the sky is the limit for Donovan as to what he enjoys most about his role with Zest Wellness, but if he had to be specific it is the opportunity to be creative. It is this creativity on a daily basis that Donovan unleashes as he educates others on meal planning, grocery store visits, and label reading.

The "Wellness from Home" podcast series is one of the many online wellness resources Zest Wellness is distributing right now to help you stay on track with your wellness journey.

In episode three, we sit down with Zest Wellness team member, Sharon Looney to chat about how to make time to enhance your wellbeing in small micro-steps or "10 minute wins". This episode is all about learnings from biometric screenings and time management from the biometrics program manager herself. When describing Sharon, it's important to share her personal wellness philosophy:

“Start small- think big - don't stop, pivot, review, and don't let things get the better of you. Wellness for me is about being your best self in the given moment. Health and wellness come from within but support and resources are all around.”

What Sharon enjoys most about her role on the Zest Wellness team is the motivation she feels when hearing how wellness initiatives have made a difference. Seeing healthy habits lead to improved biometric results is inspiring to say the least. Her favorite books are If Nobody Speaks (bonus – favorite children’s books are The Tiger Who Came to Tea, The Presidents Glasses, and The Magic Moment. Please enjoy episode three of the"Wellness from Home" podcast series!
