    High Performance Life with Dr. Erik Korem

    High Performance Life with Dr. Erik Korem

    Modern health trackers collect an amazing quantity of data daily, but most of it is descriptive, not actionable. Maybe your smart watch tells you that your sleep quality is poor, but do you know how to fix it? Maybe you learn your HRV is low, but how do you improve? All the information in the world means nothing if you don’t have a plan of how to adapt and grow from it. On this week’s podcast, discover how Dr. Erik Korem used qualified self-data in high performance sports and now uses it to help average people like you and me. 
    Listen and learn:
    Why respecting your circadian clock is crucial for good health How belonging to a faith community (of any type) correlates with remarkably positive health outcomes Why stress is a gateway to growth Why allostatic load is an important, often-overlooked health consideration  ABOUT OUR GUEST
    Dr. Eric Korem is the founder and CEO of AIM7, a company that specializes in sleep and stress resilience. He has a background in working with professional sports teams, Olympic athletes, and government agencies.

    How to Fix Your Body - Relieve Pain with Rick Olderman

    How to Fix Your Body - Relieve Pain with Rick Olderman

    Our traditional healthcare systems offer amazing options for acute pain and injury, but for long-term, chronic, and subclinical pain, you’re mostly on your own. It’s more common than not for someone with chronic lower back or knee pain to have absolutely no idea what is wrong or how to fix it, and scans and doctors’ appointments often leave you with no clarity or guidance. In an attempt to fix ourselves, we stretch, strengthen, buy different shoes, and adjust our workstations. Sometimes it works, but sometimes we need more help. 
    On this week’s podcast, we meet a physical therapist who focuses on standing posture and walking gait as a functional fix to main chronic pain ailments. 
    Listen and learn:
    Why atrophied gluteus maximus muscles are often a key culprit in joint pain Why it can be helpful to avoid locking your knees while standing How an overemphasis on movement can sometimes lead to overlooking incorrect movement Links
    Rick’s Website
    ABOUT OUR GUEST
    Rick is a physical therapist who found traditional therapy effective for acute pain but lacking for chronic pain and nagging injuries. He spent over 20 years developing his own approach and subsequently authored the Fixing You book series.

    Improve Your Attention Span with Dr. Gloria Mark

    Improve Your Attention Span with Dr. Gloria Mark

    When people brag about their 80-hour work weeks, I have to wonder, are they really working for 80 hours? Or are they starting, browsing social media, and then stopping and starting eight times in a row like me? While I often “work” for 10 or even 12 hours in a day, only a novelist would label what I’m actually doing as focused work.
    Many of us struggle with attention so profoundly that our only solution is to buffer the day with massive blocks of non-productive cloud-gazing time, so that 2-3 hours of focus will collectively add up by default by the time the day is over. Sound familiar? My guest on this week's podcast studies attention and productivity.  
    Listen and learn: 
    How a 20-minute walk encourages divergent thinking and can refresh your attention span How multitasking can increase your blood pressure and stress response How to practice discernment and mindfulness with social media The value of superimposing meta-awareness to tasks for greater attention Links
    Gloria’s site
    ABOUT OUR GUEST
    Gloria Mark is a professor at UC Irvine. She has spent over two decades studying multitasking, interruptions, productivity and mood with the rise in digital technology. Her work has been published extensively and her new book is called Attention Span.

What A Great Podcast!

Lucas Rockwell is a great host with great health content! Appreciated the episode with Dr. Oz Garcia about his struggle with long-haul covid! The information provided to help us protect our immune system for the future was invaluable! And his analogy to the author of Atomic Habits priceless.

I’m confused about Lucas

I subscribed to (and even purchased one of their products) Lucas’ podcast to better my physical health. Now I’m listening to a podcast talking about the benefits of marriage and “guardrails.” Starting to sense some serious Christian undertones…
