Rethinking Physical Pain

-------------
Have you ever experienced chronic back or knee pain? An estimated 80% of people have a major pain episode at some point in their lives, and it often leads to downstream mental and physical health problems.

But what if pain were a protective mechanism?

What if pain was your body’s way of telling you when you need to back off, be careful, move differently? On this week’s podcast, we’ll rethink pain from the ground up with special guest, Aaron Kubal.

Making Sense of Food

with Robb Wolf
--------

You step into your local health food store, and the confusion begins. Keto, Paleo, low fat, high fat. It’s all so overwhelming. One approach lowers your cholesterol but improves your blood sugar. Another diet is great for combating inflammation but causes constipation.

This impossible choice is happening to you and me locally, and it also plays out on the macro level with our food systems themselves. How do we end hunger, ensure nutritional needs are met, and protect our topsoil at the same time? This seemingly impossible balancing act might be one of the most-important issues of the next 30 years. Let’s get into it.

Listen in Learn: 

  • How evolution continues today, and yet we are still mostly cavemen 
  • The importance of ruminant animals for topsoil 
  • Hidden inefficiencies of lab-grown meat
  • Can we evolve to be healthy on carbs and canola?

Tendencies, Habits & Change
with Gretchen Rubin

----------------------------
Every few months a new productivity book hits the shelves, and of course, I read it. I’m a sucker for personal growth hacks. Do I need to fix my morning routine? What about a gratitude journal? Should I drink lemon water or celery juice in the morning? I joke that I’m a walking cliche - but that doesn’t change my behavior.

The reality is that personal growth is, well, personal. What works for me might not work for you. Your organizational system, your calendar or filing system that changed your life might do nothing to help me get things done. One this week’s podcast, you’ll meet returning guest and ultra-practical self help author, Gretchen Rubin. 

Listen & Learn: 

  • What you can learn about envy
  • Intrinsic vs. extrinsic motivation 
  • How to figure out what you really want
  • Thoughts on work, life, family, and friend balance
