    Tip #124 - Expend Energy To Create Energy

    Tip #124 - Expend Energy To Create Energy

    I’m just too tired to workout. Have you ever said that to yourself?

    I’m pretty sure each and every one of us would have to say yes (maybe in between a yawn and another sip of coffee).

    Feeling tired or downright exhausted is one of the most common barriers to physical activity. If you can barely pull yourself out of bed, how are you supposed to drag yourself through a workout?

    Listen to today's episode to find out!

    Tip #122 - Step Out Of The Spotlight

    Tip #122 - Step Out Of The Spotlight

    Have you ever walked into a crowded unfamiliar room and felt like all eyes were on you? Or felt like that zit on your forehead or stain on your shirt is drawing everyone's attention?

    It’s a feeling we have all had at some point in our lives. Why do we feel this way?  Why do we sometimes overestimate how likely other people are to notice negative things about us?

    Well we can thank a cognitive bias called the Spotlight Effect for this one!

    This effect can strongly influence our thinking in so many situations, so it’s important to understand it, especially when it comes to making ourselves feel less self-conscious and more confident.

    That’s why it’s the topic of today’s podcast. Why it happens, and how can we reduce the degree to which it influences us so we can get on with doing the things we want to do to improve our health and wellness.
