Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis features:

Waylon Lewis is back with his award-winning video series and podcast.

He’ll be going live each Friday and starting out with three mindful tips each week, big & small.

“Hey friends, every Friday I share three specific, useful, fun, interesting—at least to me—mindful tips. They’re probably kind of nerdy, but they’re applicable to our daily lives from a mindful point of view, an eco point of view, and from a point of view of caring about society.” ~ Waylon Lewis

Want to ask a question, or submit a mindful tip? We’ll include it if it’s good: comment here, or on YouTube, or DM @waylonlewis on Insta.


This week:

1. Birdfeeders are good for the birds and better entertainment than TV.

2. Eye strain will getcha over time. Make your fonts bigger on every little thing.

3. Be neighborly. Support Little Free Libraries.

“Now, I’m 48. I’m a bachelor. I never thought birdfeeders would be in my life. I have made fun of my mom, who is an avid birder and who knows crows by name. They follow her around. She has relationships with birds and squirrels. She’s like Cinderella. Anyway, I made fun of her for her love for birds forever.

But I got a couple birdfeeders during the pandemic and I have to say, I’m not sure which one I watch more—the birds or my TV.” ~ Waylon Lewis 

“Little Free Libraries are one of the signs that the world is going in a better direction, that we don’t need to give up hope.” ~ Waylon Lewis

Reader Comment: “A little free library is definitely on my to do list! Our little community has several of them, including the college. There are always people out walking and I love that they can check those on their travels.” ~ Kelly Greene

A note from Waylon:

Big news about my podcast, new YouTube channel.

Our podcast and video series are trying to start up again, with Molly’s help! Help support them by viewing, listening, sharing—we’ve received many requests over the last years for mindful tips and conversations and the podcast to return. Boom! I’m once again doing a convo/video/podcast once a week. Hope you give it a listen.

I’m leaving behind Elephant’s 35,000 subscribers (Google never let us monetize) and many millions of views—and I hope you’ll subscribe to my new channel here: I’ll upload at least one video a week about everyday mindfulness and eco and meditation and relationships and food and equality and politics from a non-hateful perspective, and all that good stuff.

⁠So, anyways, starting a new account. Subscribe! Support! Share! All the things. May it be of benefit! Be one of my first and comment if you do so.
