Age Less / Live More

Bunions, hammertoes, and the wide array of foot ailments can be easy to hide inside shoes, but that doesn’t make them easy to live with. What might start as achy feet can quickly turn into a real health challenge with cascading effects if you’re unable to stay active doing the things you love. On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet a podiatrist that takes a holistic approach to foot health. 

Listen to Learn

  • Why bunions happen and what to do about them
  • When cosmetic vs. necessary surgeries make sense

When you hear the word addict, it may conjure up images of alcoholics stumbling out of bars late at night, or of bleary eyed celebrities being admitted to rehab. But addiction comes in many forms and nowadays includes a whole new set of vices, such as online gaming, pornography and even social media. If addiction is now defined as any compulsive behavior that starts to impede your life in significant ways, it’s likely that many of us may need to take a long hard look in the mirror.  

Listen and learn:

  • How to know whether you’re addicted to something
  • Why many therapists have troubled backgrounds
  • The difference between therapy and coaching

I’m a productivity junkie in recovery. I’ve read just about every productivity and habit change book you can think of. From time blocking and “inbox zero”, to nootropics, I’ve tried almost everything. And while I’ve certainly learned many tactics, I’ve also learned that most things don’t last. We all need to find what works for us individually; and maybe accept that we are not, or at least don’t have to be, so productive all the time. 

In a quest to boost her own productivity, my guest on this week’s podcast discovered that the secret is to reframe and redefine it altogether. 

Listen and learn:

  • How all types of creativity can be a form of productivity
  • How not to succumb to the comparison trap and find what works for you
  • Whether joy and ease motivate you, or fear and pain
  • What’s behind this increased focus on achieving productivity

Overwork and overwhelm are huge problems in today’s society, yet they are highly revered in many cultures. From the story of Elon Musk sleeping in the Tesla factory, to the parents so committed to their children they haven’t had a night out in three years. We shake our heads in dismay when we hear them, but smile in admiration at the same time. Why? Because finding balance is an issue many of us struggle with. 

On this week’s podcast, we meet a medical doctor and mother of four who found herself consumed by burnout, overwhelm, disappointment, and isolation. She made a huge change in her own life and now writes, speaks, and coaches women to set boundaries and find balance in theirs. 

Listen and learn:

  • How your personality and who you are, is often largely determined by age 14
  • Why medical doctors have the highest suicide rate of any profession
  • How to avoid falling into the trap of martyrdom
  • Masculine vs. feminine boundaries and the best recharge strategies
