Keynotes & Talks

    Zoom, OnSite, Offsite

AJ's live, 60-minute talks are available both virtual and in person, and they are packed with insight and inspiration.


AJ's warmth, credibility, and engaging personality create an atmosphere that supports expansion, creativity, and abundant possibility. 

Presentation topics include but are not limited to:

  • Nutritional Psychology: Impact of food on mood, health, stress, and performance.

  • Science-based tools to reduce stress, improve mood, and achieve goals.

  • Bidirectional associations between physical and mental health and the systems (collection of daily habits) that promote human flourishing.

The INHALE EXHALE SMILE® WORKPLACE WELLBEING PROJECT, founded by AnJenette Afridi, MA, promotes physical and mental health in the workplace by leveraging interdisciplinary knowledge from Occupational Health Psychology, Nutritional Psychology, Human Performance Science, and Mindfulness. 

“Above all, do not lose your desire to walk. Every day I walk myself into a state of wellbeing and walk away from every illness. I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it.”


Søren Kierkegaard, Danish philosopher 1813-1855. Søren would walk every day until he got an idea worthy of spending the remainder of his day writing. He exclusively worked at a standing desk since he felt sitting was harmful!

Intoxicating Walking Lectures

Join AJ, Adi, and Sofi at a 90 minute group WalkShop. Experience the intoxicating synergy of fresh air, movement, therapy pups, and reflective discourse.


What the heck is a WalkShop?  In its simplest terms, a WalkShop can be thought of as a workshop conducted through walking in an organic and dynamic manner. The value of both using the outdoors and walking as a way to stimulate reflective thinking have been appreciated and documented in various fields for some time. There has been a long association between the practices of walking and philosophy, first recorded in writing as early as Aristotle’s (384–322 BC) Peripatetic School and the walking scholars. The term "Peripatetic" means "of walking" or "given to walking about”. 


Benefits of Walking in Nature and Urban Green Spaces: NIH research shows that nature walks improve mental health. These findings reinforce the benefits of moderate-intensity physical activity on mental health and suggest green spaces boost positive psychological responses. Nature reduces inflammation and prevents many diseases by boosting immunity. According to the American Psychological Association (2020), even urban parks and trees can lead to positive outcomes. Neale et al. (2022) recent study on the impact of urban walking on psychophysiological wellbeing showed the benefits to psychophysiological wellbeing from walking in urban green spaces. 


According to Koselka et al. (2019), walking in greenspace can be a cost effective way to improve mental wellbeing. In addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and improving mood for those experiencing the wear and tear of everyday life, physical activity in greenspace may also provide an important adjunct therapy to clinical therapies. These results support the development of evidence-based recommendations for Nature Rx to encourage people to be physically active in nature and greenspaces.
