    Dr Drew Ramsey Unboxing | What To Eat To Beat Depression & Anxiety

    Dr Drew Ramsey Unboxing | What To Eat To Beat Depression & Anxiety

    Depression and anxiety disorders are rising, affecting more than fifty-eight million people in the United States alone. Many rely on therapy and medications to alleviate symptoms, but often this is not enough. The latest scientific advances in neuroscience and nutrition, along with our understanding of the mind-gut connection, have proven that how and what we eat greatly affects how we feel—physically, cognitively, and emotionally.
    Drew Ramsey, MD @DrewRamseyMD is a psychiatrist, author, and farmer. His work focuses on clinical excellence, nutritional interventions and creative media. He is an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and in active telemedicine clinical practice based in New York City.
    His work has been featured by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Lancet Psychiatry, The Today Show, BBC, and NPR and he has given three TEDx talks. He is the co-author of the Antidepressant Food Scale and his e-courses on Nutritional Psychiatry education for the public and clinicians. His books Eat to Beat Depression and Anxiety (Harperwave 2021), Eat Complete, 50 Shades of Kale, and The Happiness Diet explore the connections between mental health and nutrition. He is on the Advisory Board at Men's Health, the Editorial Board at Medscape Psychiatry, and is a member of the Well+Good Wellness Council.

    Oliver Burkeman Unboxing | Four Thousand Weeks Time & How To Manage It Well

    Oliver Burkeman Unboxing | Four Thousand Weeks Time & How To Manage It Well

    The average human lifespan is absurdly, insultingly brief. Assuming you live to be eighty, you have just over four thousand weeks.
    Nobody needs telling there isn’t enough time. We’re obsessed with our lengthening to-do lists, our overfilled inboxes, work-life balance, and the ceaseless battle against distraction; and we’re deluged with advice on becoming more productive and efficient, and “life hacks” to optimize our days. But such techniques often end up making things worse. The sense of anxious hurry grows more intense, and still the most meaningful parts of life seem to lie just beyond the horizon. Still, we rarely make the connection between our daily struggles with time and the ultimate time management problem: the challenge of how best to use our four thousand weeks.
    Oliver Burkeman is a feature writer for The Guardian. He is a winner of the Foreign Press Association's Young Journalist of the Year Award and has been short-listed for the Orwell Prize. He wrote a popular weekly column on psychology, "This Column Will Change Your Life," and has reported from New York, London, and Washington, D.C. His books include Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management for Mortals and The Antidote: Happiness for People who Can’t Stand Positive Thinking.

Koale portrayed ‘Solo,’ based on the real-life soldier Tausolo ‘Solo’ Aieti, who saved two comrades in Iraq but struggled to cope with the death of a third who died in combat. Most recently he can be seen in the action-horror film SHADOW IN THE CLOUD and next up will star in Taika Waititi’s comedy NEXT GOAL WINS, based on the 2014 documentary of the same name.

    Stephen Miller Unboxing | The Art of Getting It Wrong

    Stephen Miller is a creator and entrepreneur who has grown his platform to nearly one million followers in just two years through his show The Miller Fam, a channel that displays the beauty of diversity and adoption featuring his large, diverse, adoptive family of nine. With over fifteen years of ministry in some of the nation’s largest churches, Stephen has recorded six studio albums and is the author of Liberating King and Worship Leaders, We Are Not Rock Stars.
    Cocreator of YouTube sensation The Miller Fam Stephen Miller reveals how to turn failures, mishaps, and disappointments into a life of fun and fulfillment.
    Long before his YouTube channel The Miller Fam became a viral sensation with nearly a million subscribers, Stephen Miller endured countless failed endeavors, made too many rash decisions, and experienced deep discouragement at life not going as planned. Those experiences taught him a powerful lesson: that life will ultimately be okay, even when it seems in the moment like it won't.
    With the characteristic authenticity, love, and humor Stephen shows in his YouTube videos, The Art of Getting It Wrong shares hard truths and never-before-told stories of misadventures that challenge you.

The best bits of every autobiography ever

I love the authenticity of these conversations, and the vulnerability of them. I have been encouraged by each one that I’ve heard, challenged, and spurred on. Jay’s openness and insightful questions dig right to the core of the stories of his guests. Can’t recommend highly enough

The SOTA Process Podcast ,

Not for atheists

As someone who loves stories, I was excited to start listening to this podcast. The episodes I heard demonstrated the host to be a deeply religious person who enjoys talking about Jesus. There was nothing in the description that suggested this was the slant of the interviews.
I also found the questions often inane.
If you like hearing stories about God the saviour, you may well enjoy this podcast.
If you love a good tale, but would prefer a less religious approach, I’d recommend; Conversations with Richard Fidler, Beautiful Anonymous with Chris Gethard, & The Moth.
