#CFPOA #49 Getting to a Higher Level in Sports with Meditation with Sam Lofton
Sam Lofton's childhood was full of sports and competitiveness with her two siblings. She had difficulties along the way by the way of experiencing different emotions stemming from a traumatic head injury her sister faced while Sam was a youth player, which cut her own soccer career short.
Sam continued hers and found her way to James Madison University and to the professional ranks of the NWSL with Boston Breakers and Portland Thorns FC, before heading to Europe, and attributes her success to finding meditation along her journey.
She now works with youth athletes and teaches them the same techniques, which helped her achieve success on and off the field.

#CFPOA #48 Why Sleep is so Important for You and Your Child with Adam Krause
In this episode Gabe interviews Adam Krause, a PhD candidate in Psychology at UC Berkeley, working with Professor Matthew Walker at the Center for Human Sleep Science. Dr. Walker wrote the book, "Why We Sleep", which motivated Gabe to reach out to Adam.
Adam's educational background is in philosophy and cognitive science from UC Berkeley, and his current work leverages multi-disciplinary techniques to examine the impact of sleep deprivation on human health and brain function. He is particularly interested in the physiology of pain, the interplay between sleep and the immune system, and in exploring the many functions of sleep.
Gabe and Adam discuss the different types of sleep, sleep needs for children and adolescents, sleep paralysis, sleep's impact on pain and recovery, good sleep habits, and much more.
As always, you can get in touch with Gabe for any individual or group coaching or team workshops at aclearmind.com
From many podcasts out there, I find Gabe Nosseir’s unique. He addresses exactly what I need to hear about raising athletic kids. Even if mine have olympic dreams, I am happy to support them in being the best in school, maybe the district or the county or region. Hey, maybe state and national?
Whatever the level of achievement ultimately, I hear about what IT COUNTS from Mr. Nosseir. Sometimes I want to tell my kids what to do and how to be. I KNOW that I have to LISTEN to them, though. I know because other parents of successful athletes have said so.
This is just an example of why I look forward to this podcasts. They are upbeat, fun, instructive, and they make me a better mom. Well, most of the times—I can still lose my patience!
A Great Podcast for so many...
Such an awesome podcast for parents, coaches, athletes and fans!
Gabe’s interviews reveal important and insightful perspective from his guests. Very interesting stories and background shared by the athletes, along with key supportive info given by Gabe and his other guests in the series. A highly recommended listen!
Excellent content and guests
CFPOA is just what parents of athletes need to tune into, to learn how to up their game as their kids’ #1 support. Gabe shares a lot of revelatory insights into what kind of mindset drives parents to push their kids to a point of burn out, and how to shift that mindset to create the conditions for our kids to thrive, as both athletes and human beings. I’ve really enjoyed all the amazing guest speakers. It’s really interesting to hear from successful athletes (and some parents of highly successful athletes) on their experience coming up, how they were raised, and what impacted their success and their love for their sport! If you’re raising and athlete, or even coaching young athletes, you need to tune in!
