Join Jason Goldberg and Aaron Alexander in this week’s episode as they chat about physiology, physical movement, dating, relationships, and all these things mixed together! Aaron shares with us the importance of physical wellbeing and its correlation with psychology, how he started his journey with bodybuilding and strength training, and why it helped him create his identity. Aaron also talks about what he would like to ruin in life:
“I’d like to ruin not feeling at home. Home in your body, home with your relationships, home with this world.” – Aaron Alexander
You will learn why it’s important to create a deep connection with your body in order to perform better, be a more empathetic person, live healthier and have a better life. When we truly understand the wants and needs of our physical being we start to develop other things like appreciation and self love. To take care of ourselves (taking care of our physical state) is to know ourselves more and that is the most important tool we have to achieve wellness every day. Aaron also addresses some science facts behind physiology, body movement, stretching and why every individual in the planet could squat if they wanted. Besides that, try not to laugh with the games!
