EMB #528: Compassion and Gratefulness – Part 1
In part 1 of this 2 part series I talk about the importance of compassion of being a contributing human being to this world.
It's so important to practice compassion especially in the world we live in today.
We don't know what another is going through and it's best not to judge.
Remain grateful, change your mind set to appreciation and we'd all make this a better world to live in.

EMB #526: Chronic Pain, Participation Awards and Hard Work
Chronic pain is something many deal with, much more than we know.
In fact, there's a good chance we'll all deal with chronic pain in one way or another.
Let's talk about how to prevent, how to treat and how to deal with what can be a debilitating experience.
In this show I also talk about participation awards, learning from failure and not understanding what it's like to go through life's ups and downs.
And finally hard work, one of my favourite topics. There is no substitute for hard work.
Hard work gives us more options, it makes us better people and prepares us for life especially going through hard work early on at a younger age.

After creating the biohacker's ultimate resource website, SelfHacked, Joe moved on to found SelfDecode,the ultimate biotech software platform for DNA and lab-based health recommendations. Today,SelfDecode helps thousands of users discover how to meet their health goals through gene-basedscience.
EMB #524: Why New Years Resolutions Don’t Work
In most cases we set goals without having a real plan only because we think we're supposed to. It's the New Year and we heard we're supposed to set goals, so we don't but don't exactly know how.
We need to start with achievable goals first and build a sustainable plan that will last, instead of jumping in with two feet having no idea why or what we're doing.
Working together is important, even if you're used to doing these things on your own. There's a reason this hasn't worked in the past, most likely because you've tried to do it on your own.
Find a community, find a support group and you'll quickly find out how important it is.
Consider other goals as well. In most cases people only set wellness goals, but what about financial for example, what about adventure. Do something you're not used to, think outside the box and you'll be all the better for it!
EMB #523: Holiday Health Tips
You know what the thing is, there's always a reason it's a holiday, or a birthday or a long weekend. Holidays never really end with September and the start of a new school year, then there's Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year celebrations....
It never ends, which means this show's information is relevant at any time of year. We have focused on Christmas here but we can learn something here for any time of year.
Learn how you can stay on track, get on track or dust yourself off and get back in the game if all went for not!
