Welcome to The Synced Life


The Synced Life Podcast


We are currently on hiatus for the summer and will return with new episodes September 2018. 

Human connection is the multivitamin we all need more of. On a cellular level, we are wired to connect and the extent to which we positively sync with others, even strangers, has a huge impact on our lives, inside and out. Imagine if our lives could be exponentially upgraded just by bringing more attention and intention to the way we connect with others. That’s living The Synced Life. 

Listen to the trailer. 

The Host: Kristen Manieri

To me, life is about constantly evolving as a human being. It's about using the experiences presented to us every single day to upgrade our consciousness, even if it's only by the smallest amount. 

Have a conversation with me and within minutes you'll discover that I am an insatiably curious lifelong learner, reader and podcast devourer. 

I’m on a journey to learn more about how to maximize what researchers have found is the most critical factor in our health,  happiness and well-being: the way we connect with others. 

I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada, and I've been a resident of Orlando, FL since 2006

I launched (and still run) a lifestyle blog in 2007, the same year I started freelance writing for magazines both locally and beyond. 

I'm a seasoned speaker and a sought-after television news guest. But mostly I'm just a human being, trying to figure it all out, not make too much of a mess of things, and learn a few things along the way.  

On Deck for October 2018
