Waylon’s 3 Mindful Tips every Friday: Eye Glasses, the Only Shameful thing, +…Tea Kettles.

Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis features:

This week:

1. Support the 1-2% of independent eye glasses companies that still exist. You’ll be helping keep a small company alive and while it might cost a little more, it’ll be made with craftsmanship, last longer, pay those who made it fairly, and save you money in the long run (unless you lose it!).

2. The only shameful thing…is not changing our actions when we have the privilege of information and decline to change, or choose to continue to bring about harm.

3. This is not some hippie, crazy thing—for the sake of your health, skip the plastic tea kettle and choose one that’s metal—inside and out.

“Have a hunky-dory Friday. I send my love to all of you. And if any of you need a hug, please leave a comment. If you need a hug, let’s—everyone who is here—let’s just give each other a hug, because there’s a lot going on in this world.” ~ Waylon Lewis 

“The only thing we need to feel shame about is if we have the information, like around veganism, and then we decline to change in a more ethical or compassionate way.” ~ Waylon Lewis 

Reader Comment: “Lol. I had to laugh about the eyeglasses! I’m lost without readers these days. There’s a lot of great information here. Thank you, Waylon.” ~ Kelly Greene

Or listen to the podcast:


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.


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.
