    Embracing Discomfort with Michael Easter

    Embracing Discomfort with Michael Easter

    In many ways, we’re living more comfortable lives than ever before. We can drift through life while almost never being too hot, too old, too hungry, too physically exhausted, too dirty, or even too bored?
     
    Yet, could the modernization of cars, computers, climate control and processed foods be chipping away at our physical, mental and emotional health?
     
    Investigative health journalist Michael Easter shares how we can leverage the life-enhancing power of discomfort in our daily lives to relieve tension, lower the risk of disease and dramatically improve our overall well-being.
     
    If you're looking to find real connection in our world, today’s conversation will help you to embrace discomfort to reclaim your wild, happy and healthy self.

    We All Struggle Sometimes (Monday Moment ep. 472)

    We All Struggle Sometimes (Monday Moment ep. 472)

    Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
    The first week of May this year was a bit exhausting for me. That week, I entered Immaculate Conception school physically in pain, emotionally drained and professionally wiped out.
    And yet, it was one of the most surprising - and humbling - moments I’ve had as a speaker.
    Today, I encourage all of us to strive to be a source of inspiration for others.

    The Power of Fun with Screen/Life Balance Expert Cathrine Price

    The Power of Fun with Screen/Life Balance Expert Cathrine Price

    Catherine Price is an award-winning science journalist, screen/life balance expert and the author of books including The Power of Fun and How to Break Up with Your Phone.
     
    In our always-on, productivity-addicted lifestyles, we tend to think of the pursuit of fun as being indulgent or even childish. We claim not to have time for it even as we spend hours a day engaging in what today’s guest calls “Fake Fun”—binge-watching Netflix, endlessly scrolling through Twitter, or indulging our FOMO on Instagram, all in hopes of filling some of the emptiness we feel inside. 
     
    Today, Catherine shares her evidence-backed resources to help others design lives in which they control their technology, rather than the other way around—with the ultimate goal of increasing happiness, productivity, creativity, health and wellbeing.
     
    This conversation will empower each of us to scroll less, live more, and have fun.

    A Loving Model of Consistent Generosity (Monday Moment)

    A Loving Model of Consistent Generosity (Monday Moment)

    “You can easily tell the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
    Years ago, I ran a small construction company. Continuously running material, picking up tools, and dropping lumber, I spent significant time in a truck with my General Contractor, Harold Stewart.
     
    Working together for almost a decade, Harold certainly taught me much about framing, wiring, plumbing and painting. The greatest lesson, though, was the power of consistent generosity.
     
    My friends, there are so many examples of selfish people, tragic events and senseless violence today. In a world as broken as ours we often wonder what we can do to make a difference.
     
    The example my friend- my brother- Harold models is a simple solution to the profound challenges we face today: Love people.
     
    Choose to be kind to the one in front of you. Choose to invest in relationships for the long term. And choose to be generous to those who can’t repay it.
     
    It may not change the entire world, but unquestionably it will change the life of the one you serve. And perhaps that's how we begin making the actual change the world longs for today.

Love this podcast. Never written a review before, but the one 1/14 podcast with Mattie Jackson Selecman was the most inspiring, honest podcast I’ve ever experienced.
