8/16/2019
More
In today’s show we discuss longevity. Although it is often equated with “lifespan,” longevity is a broader concept that applies not only to lifespan, but the ongoing duration of any of a multitude of activities. In the broader sense of longevity, these include things like: fitness and health, relationships, job, career, friendships, etc. How and Why do you sustain performance in certain areas for years and years - even decades after decade?

020 - Gym Etiquette

8/2/2019
More
While there is no rules handbook handed out when one joins a gym, there are expected norms of behavior within a gym environment. As such, most of these are unwritten rules that unfortunately not enough people know. Again, while common sense should dictate most of these behaviors - like being a good person, picking up after yourself, and being conscientious of others - there is unfortunately the need to get into more detail and provide more clarification with regard to gym behavior. Thus, we...

019 - Intuitive Eating

7/26/2019
More
With most of society being bombarded with diet messages, diet rules, do and don’t foods, eat this and not that, coupled with photoshopped IG pictures of unnatural physiques, etc. - an alternative approach is what is called intuitive eating. Intuitive eating is a philosophy that rejects traditional dieting and instead supports listening to your body’s own cues to decide what, when, and how much to eat. This approach was NOT designed specifically for weight loss but rather considers your...

018 - Intermittent Fasting

7/19/2019
More
Although it’s been around in principle for a very long time (most religions around the world promote some form of fasting), Intermittent Fasting has grown in popularity due primarily to scientific research indicating that IF can lead to weight lo ss, stabilized blood sugar, reduced inflammation, improvements in memory and stress resistance, slowed aging, longer lifespan, and blood sugar stabilization — all promising health benefits. There are multiple approaches to Intermittent Fasting, but...

017 - Managing Self Talk

7/12/2019
More
Like our physical habits, we all have mental habits that often manifest themselves in the form of self-talk, or conversations, comments, etc. we have in our heads. And indeed there are parallels here between physical habits and mental habits. The way we talk to ourselves about the events in our lives is subject to the same laws of learning and habit formation as physical behaviors. It has been said that “things happen in life,” but HOW you INTERPRET, REACT, and ASSIGN MEANING to those things...

016 - Develop and Sustain Habits

7/5/2019
More
Most successful people underscore the importance and impact of habits on their life. And, with good reason - habits are the underpinning of what you do, who you are, and who you can become. With the right habits, you're more efficient, effective, and strategic about the thoughts and actions that lead you towards your goals. You tend to “show up” day in and day out regardless of your current motivation level. You will have a positive impact and influence on those around you - as you lead by...

015 - Patience

6/28/2019
More
While there is plenty of hype in today’s short-cut driven, photoshop-edited, instant-gratification fueled world, the reality of long-term growth and progress most often requires patience and consistent hard work. Patience is often the unseen, un-sexy, and boring practice that serves as the foundation of success that drives lasting change - and the topic of today’s show. Like the amazing ability of compounding (in financial investing) patience is a bunch of little things that add up over...

013 - Dietary Supplements, part 1

6/14/2019
More
Dietary and nutritional supplements are a widespread and massive industry - but do they work? And, once again the answer is “it depends.” By the very nature of the word, the intent is to supplement one’s diet, not replace or cover for a bad diet. That said, the average person is likely to have a diet in which not all vitamin/mineral/fiber/micro nutrient needs are being met - hence the potential benefit of supplementation. Scientific evidence shows that some dietary supplements are beneficial...
