“Grey Matters” as a title is a play on words. Grey matter is a vital part of the brain containing neurons and glial cells, imperative for motor function, processing thoughts, perception of life and emotions. We believe overall health and well being should start and focus on the brain & mind. We thought this would be appropriate because not only will our content and conversations focus on brain health, it will also focus on the grey areas. Most people live their lives in a grey area. Everyone is an individual & what works for one person, may not provide the same results for another. Health and wellness isn’t always black or white, right or wrong, with or against societal norms. That’s why grey areas matter. At the Grey Matters podcast, we embrace both grey areas and grey matter & it is our goal to explore and discuss all things grey. -Josh Perry & Jackie Lauricella

Josh Morse explains how self-awareness and being uncomfortable are important for growth, which leads to success.

Business and sport share a lot of commonalities as they both require discipline, persistence, and dedication. The pain we endure to land a trick on our BMX bikes builds character that helps withstand any adversity that comes in other non-physical forms of life, especially when building a business.

Every athlete dies twice...

When you go all in on something you love, it's easy for it to consume you and your life. This isn't always a negative thing. Jackie is so happy that her sport of taekwondo was this for her and frequently refers to it as her first love. When she made the decision to finish her degree and step away from taekwondo, rather than face the pain she was feeling over this "break up" she threw herself into her work and studies, which later came back to haunt her.

Jackie describes how she was a high energy child with tendencies to express that..physically when provoked. Normally a kind child, she was also very talkative and extroverted. When this disrupted class it would lead to punishment in the form of having recess time outs, which only exacerbated the problem. Wanting to supplement the exercise she was missing at school, her parents eventually put her in martial arts to develop discipline, strength and self-control. Taken from "The Grey Matters...

Death brings upon less desirbale feelings and often we tend to make it "right" or "wrong" when it's not a matter of right versus wrong. What's important is how we move forward with these feelings and what we do with them.

Defining life moments...

More
We all have moments in our lives that define us based on how we react to a situation. The moment we learn that someone we care for is no longer alive can become a very defining moment in our lives based on how we choose to move forward. I don't believe we, as human beings, fully comprehend what death truly is for the mere fact that we don't ever experience it as a conscious living human being. Death is a very complicated and difficult experience to navigate when it occurs in our lives...
