    #95: "How" We Eat

    #95: "How" We Eat

    In part 2 of our 3 part series on eating, the coaches go into the "how" of eating.

    The two big key topics on this subject are eating distracted and eating fast.

    These actions have many downstream effects and can play a big role in one's outcomes.

    They are so powerful, you can possibly just address the "how" and get the results you are looking for without even needing to address the "what" we eat.

    Thanks for listening!

    #94: "Why" We Eat

    #94: "Why" We Eat

    Today's episode is the first part of a three-part series we are doing on why, how, and what we eat.

    Most people only focus on the "what", chasing diets and methods that tend to only work for the short term.

    This is because if we never address the "why" and "how" of eating, we will fail to create the habits we need for long-term success.

    First up is the "why" and it is the most difficult of the three to address.

    This is because our "why's" can be varied and also date back decades.

    The coaches will be discussing everything from because we are hungry to stress eating to chasing dopamine and entertainment eating.

    We hope you find this episode thought-provoking and helpful!

    #93: How To Get Better Sleep

    #93: How To Get Better Sleep

    Today we are taking a deep dive into sleep and how to improve it.

    We go beyond the standard "hacks" like brain dumps and a cold room (although still helpful).

    The coaches talk about the fact that our sleep signals are really working on a 24-hour clock and the importance of how you start your day.

    We outline simple, realistic habits and strategies you can start implementing today. Along with laying out what an ideal day would look like from start to finish for great sleep. With a beginner and advanced version.

    #91: How Your Shoes & Feet Can Affect The Rest Of Your Body

    #91: How Your Shoes & Feet Can Affect The Rest Of Your Body

    In this week's episode, Ben Lengel, Coastal Strength & Fitness Coach, and NKT Practitioner join us to chat all things feet.

    From the health benefits of being barefoot and wearing flat, wide toe box minimalist shoes to when maybe more cushion and heel can be helpful...

    We touch on it all.

    You may be surprised to find out that it is quite possible that the reason something like your shoulder may hurt, could be due to your feet and shoe selection.

    Don't miss this one!
