Memorable Quotes from the Episode:

[00:37:10] "Whatever we can do to actually, like, connect to our fellow man and woman is really, really important. And exercise and activity is a big way to do that. And the community serves our mental health. Whether you're an introvert or an extrovert, it doesn't really matter. Being around people serves you and allows you to feel like you're part of something like a belonging, right? So I think in all those ways, activity and exercise is huge for individuals who are just really trying to establish a baseline of mental health."
