    #42 - Hitting Pause

    #42 - Hitting Pause

    I’ve decided to hit pause on our podcast, social media and Patreon for 3-6 months. I said from the beginning my goal is to create a place for open discussions on mental health and that I wanted to consistently put out quality audio, video and more than anything discussions and resources. That has gotten harder and harder over the past 9 months with COVID etc. I feel it’s most fair to our listeners that we take a pause, restructure some things and find a way to put out consistent weekly podcasts for you all. I believe in doing things 100%, and that’s just not possible for me right now with so much going on.

    I want to thank you all for being a part of this community and I hope I’ve been able to share some content that has been beneficial for you. The podcast will remain available on YouTube and all podcast platforms but I just need to step away from it for a time to re-group, take a breather and come back at a better time.

    Thank you to all of you for listening and we’ll be back soon.

    #41 - Migraine Tips

    #41 - Migraine Tips

    In this episode Kavin discusses a whole host of tools to prevent and/or reduce the number of migraines you're having. Like most things, finding the source to your mental illness, migraines, chronic pain vs just treating the symptoms is always a better approach. We're lucky that we have medication as a tool to help us get to a place that we can do the necessary deeper work, but it shouldn't be looked at as the only solution to our issues. 
    Kavin also shares a stretching and deep breathing program that he purchased years ago. You can find that here https://www.dropbox.com/s/l3m8lgfc43q1vmt/Migraine%20Program.pdf?dl=0

    #40 - Effect of Social Media on Mental Health

    #40 - Effect of Social Media on Mental Health

    This is one I've wanted to do since I started the podcast. Social Media is an interesting subject to study as it's still so new to humanity. But one thing is clear that while so many great things have come from social media, a lot of negative effects have been detrimental for peoples' mental health. There is a clear increase in depression, anxiety and suicide with the invention of the iPhone in 2007.
    Social Media was suppose to connect us to people and while it does that in so many great ways, it also ironically disconnects us with people. It's not a coincidence that a lot of the heads of these social media giants refuse to let their own children have social media accounts.
    This episode isn't about everyone getting off (while that might be necessary for some), it's more about learning how to have a healthy relationship with it. For some social media is about growing businesses and making new connections in industry, for others it's about honing in on a talent of theirs and sharing it with the world, yet for many it's a place they go that makes them feel bullied, less than, terrible parents, spouses or that they're worthless.
    Social media has caused problems with my mental health in the past as I had an unhealthy habit of comparing myself to other people. I took over a year off completely disconnected from it and it was fantastic, but also hard when trying to run businesses. I did a complete overhaul and found ways to make it a place that makes me laugh, grow business and strive to put out positivity.
    If we're going to social media to troll, degrade, constantly debate and shame people with different ideas than you, then it's probably time to take a break from it. It can be a very positive thing for you as you use it mindfully.

    #39 - Men's mental health w/ Chad Brown

    #39 - Men's mental health w/ Chad Brown

    I enjoyed sitting down with Chad Brown who's a practicing life coach. We talked all about men's mental health. There are so many topics within mental health and this one in particular is so important because the statistics show that men die by suicide 3 to 4 times more than women. Something is going on where men don't feel like they can open up when they're struggling.
    In this episode we cover a lot on the stereotypes about male masculinity and the unproductive ways that men see themselves as people that can't ever show their vulnerabilities Chad and his partner Drew Renner have started a retreat endeavor called "Epic Man Trips". They go on a trip with a group of men which often involves mountain biking, dirt bike riding, climbing etc. They're usually staying in a cabin in a remote spot and dig into what is stopping men from being their best selves as individuals, husbands, dads, employees etc. They've reported lots of success stories from these men that feel stuck in their lives and are able to meet in a group to understand they aren't alone and talk about the tools to break out of those unhelpful ways of thinking.
    You can check them out at EpicManTrips.com and simpleepicactions.com

    #37 - 30 days no sugar & caffeine

    #37 - 30 days no sugar & caffeine

    I love doing challenges that really push me out of my comfort zone. Caffeine and sugar are two of my biggest weaknesses that I crave and love and often have a hard time using them in moderation. So every year or so, I'll get off of it and I see enormous benefits. Starting Oct 15, 2020 I'm doing 30 days and would love for you to join me.
    If you're like me, when you get off caffeine and sugar there are bad withdrawal symptoms that come with it like fatigue, headaches/migraines, irritability, severe cravings etc. I'm going to try various things along the way to lower the intensity of all that like drinking plenty of water, drinking celery juice every morning, coconut water, eating plenty of food especially whole foods, getting plenty of sleep and more. Always good to try something hard for yourself that pushes you so we'll see how it goes.
