    Ep 179: Why Everyone Should Lift Weights

    Ep 179: Why Everyone Should Lift Weights

    Most people today relate weight lifting with body building and looking like the Hulk. Nothing could be further from the truth! What if I was to tell you every able-bodied human should be lifting weights on a regular basis. That is right, you need to be lifting, no matter your sex or age... period. Today, Matt Reynolds of Barbell Logic and I dig into the reasons if you are not incorporating lifting weights/strength training for optimal health, you are doing it wrong.



    Matt Reynolds is the founder & CEO of Barbell Logic Online Coaching https://barbell-logic.com/ & host of the Barbell Logic podcast. At Barbell Logic our primary focus is on simple, hard, effective strength training to improve quality-of-life. We’re not your typical fitness influencer focused on taking pics of ourselves and posting them on IG.



    Rather, we’ve forged a culture of “voluntary hardship” among our clients, and we believe this culture has a tremendous refining impact on their lives. Certainly strength training isn’t the only way to refine oneself through voluntary hardship, but we do believe it’s one of the most general, most efficient, and works well for nearly everyone.

    Ep 178: Creativity and Mental Health

    Make sure to check out my new Simple Life University Course - How to Organize Your Life: https://thesimplelifenow.com/course/how-to-organize-your-life/



    I firmly believe keeping your mind and body busy is the key to mental wellness. Sure, things go bad at times, but working through them is the key. A great way to keep yourself busy, and sharp, both mentally and physically, is to be creative; and what I mean is to create things. Not long ago everyone was a farmer, played a musical instrument, painted, wrote, or drew... where have those times gone? We now blitz ourselves with useless information via the internet, smart phone, and tv, while doing absolutely nothing productive. I'm in the middle of another big creative project, and I want to show you how you can do the same, and cancel our daily noise, with beautiful creativity.

    Make sure to check out my new Simple Life University Course - How to Organize Your Life: https://thesimplelifenow.com/course/how-to-organize-your-life/



    The National Association of Professional Organizers did a large study that showed that in the United States, 54% of Americans feel overwhelmed by clutter and that 78% have no clue what to do with all their junk.

     

    Having a cluttered home and a disorganized lifestyle impacts your mental health, physical well-being, and drains your finances.

     

    It will amaze you the stories I’ve heard from people who lived messy, disorganized lives who changed completely for the better because they built better habits and easier methods of handling and figuring out what to do with their personal belongings.

     

    I cannot stress this enough, as someone that lived the 9-5 rat race lifestyle and was a slave to material things, I understand completely what it is like to feel like your stuff owns you.

     

    You don’t have to struggle though, you can organize more than just your things, you can organize your life.

    Make sure to check out my book and learn how to do more with less: The Simple Life Guide to Decluttering Your Life

    https://thesimplelifenow.com/product/guide-to-decluttering-your-life-softcover/



    Yes, we live in a crazy world today, but are we self-inflicting a lot of our own pain? I would say 100% yes! I always say: "focus on the things you can change and ignore the rest." But a lot of people today don't know what to truly focus on to make their life simpler and better.



    Instead of focusing on what is really important in our life, we focus on the periphery that, in most cases, has nothing to do with us. We get sucked into the vortex of more is better, more noise and people complaining, another pair of shoes, another nic-nac, another car we can't afford... it just goes on and on and on.



    So what is the answer? Today I will dig into how to gain freedom by eliminating the things that are not important. Remember, we are only here for a limited time, so make the best of it.



    Topics Discussed:



    * My simple yet effective morning routine to decompress.

    * Are you less free or only more confined by your voluntary behavior.

    * How to be truly free in a world of chaos and strife.

    * How to focus on the things that are important and ignore the rest.

    * Why decluttering your mind is the key to sanity and freedom.

    * A simple way to get started.

    * Why most people have no clue what individual freedom truly is.

    * What is free will and why there seems to be a war against it.

    * Being a contrarian - when everyone is zigging you zag.
