    Recovering From Injury: And Living Is All Injury

    Recovering From Injury: And Living Is All Injury

    #102: Recovering from injury is a popular topic, whether it’s a broken bone, a soft tissue sprain, pull, or tear, or a severe illness or disease. Yet as you’ll hear in this episode, we hit on the reality that living itself is injury. Every morning you wake up, hopefully having gotten quality sleep that was healing. Let’s say you start at 100%, which is impossible, but whatever level you start out, from that point on you are depleting yourself, physically and mentally. You spend the day wearing down your resources, which is why by nighttime, we are tired. It’s our body saying, “Hey, I’ve used up enough resources I need rest and recovery to recharge!” If you have a specific, acute injury, like my recent broken rib, or if you are down with COVID, your body needs even more recovery. Thus the things we think to do to recover from a big injury, don’t differ from things we want to address every day for our recovery. It’s a valuable paradigm shift to realize the reality of our existence as it pertains to our overall capacity and ability.

    No Play No Gain

    No Play No Gain

    #101: The topic today is the value of play. Now as soon as I say that, some of you will be turned off, as I used to be. I get it. For the aspiring and success oriented individual the topic of play and fun can sound like a frivolity or luxury and lacks the valor of just pushing toward the big goal. And yet, this is how sleep used to be viewed as well. The hero doesn’t sleep! Getting more than 4-5 hours is wasteful to the truly committed! Now we know better. If you want to perform at the top level, you need great sleep. Quantity and quality. Among the truly successful I see a priority given to play. Budgeting time for non-productive work that gives our emotions a break and our inspiration a boost. In this episode we dig into the concept. Join us.

    You Are Becoming Something Right Now

    You Are Becoming Something Right Now

    #100: Every moment of every day, we are becoming. Something. There is no neutral. We are taking actions to further our transformation into something. Something we WILL be...next week, next month, next year...” This can be both daunting and exciting, but regardless it is just happening. We happen to our transformation or our transformation happens to us. Dr Randy James and I have a candid discussion on this that is not a big call to arms for positive transformation as much as a humble look at our propensities as humans and the challenge this reality can be even for us aspiring people.

    Elevate Your Wellness To A Ritual

    Elevate Your Wellness To A Ritual

    #99: We talk diet and exercise and sleep and all our habits and routines around them, and it can often sound like a chore. How about elevating our efforts to…rituals. Rituals transcend mere chores and instill a reverence and even sacredness to the effort. In this episode Dr James and I talk about taking our daily health and wellness habits and treating them as true rituals that give them far more depth and meaning which of course help dramatically to how we perceive them and therefore, consistently engage with them for the benefit we truly desire.

    Depression Treatment Menu | Part 2

    Depression Treatment Menu | Part 2

    #98: We continue our walk through a fairly comprehensive list of menu items on treatments for depression. Apathy, or even just feeling blue and unmotivated and fatigued. In the previous episode, 97, we discussed solitude, outside time, exercise, positive input, having purpose and surrounding yourself with inspiration. Here we continue on with about nine other menu items you can pick and choose from to raise your spirits and increase your hope. We really worked to be compassionate and gracious as we discuss this very serious issue, and not showcase any one thing as the holy grail, and recognize you could engage in so many of these and still have a clinical problem. But none of these efforts will hurt, and they will most assuredly help give you the best chance to combat what is holding you down.

Episode 92: chickens

Hi guys. Chickens are generally categorized as either (1) layers (hens)and they’ll eat all bugs, critters within their reach; or (2) broilers, which are raised specifically for butchering. They both start as cut, fluffy chucks. Broilers grow quickly and be ready for butchering within 6-12 weeks. Connie in Nebraska

So helpful!

All of your shows, but especially this one, have helped me with my personal health, and satisfy my craving for learning more about health related topics. Your perspectives and conversations are eye opening and trustworthy. I’d love to hear more from you on the topic of IBS and the gut brain connection, which is something I personally endure and want to learn more about. Thanks for all you do!!
