And perhaps most importantly, how do you avoid the temptation to bail out of your workout halfway through and scroll through your social media newsfeed instead?

    EPISODE 430: Is Personality Permanent?

    Have you ever taken an online personality test? Myers-Briggs, Kolbe or the “Big 5”? If you have, you no-doubt read the results with both pleasure and unease. Am I really a pushover? Am I more neurotic than most? It’s true past behavior is probably the best predictor of your future self – but it doesn’t have to be.

    EPISODE 429: Fast, Feast, Repeat

    When we think of dieting and weight loss, the first thing that comes to mind is calorie counting, portion control, and a list of “good” and “bad” foods. But what if there was a much simpler way to start? What if, before you superimpose restrictions and rules, you could achieve huge benefits simply by altering your meal timing?

    EPISODE 428: But What if Your Workplace is Toxic?

    I had an office job that was so boring, I used to photocopy my face while guzzling free office coffee and snacking on breath mints. As long as I was hovering near the copy machine, everyone assumed I was doing something productive.

    EPISODE 427: 8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back

    Office chairs were always bad news for spinal health, but now most people are working hunched over a laptop on their coach – and many of their kids are doing the same! In 2019, we spent too much time on screens, but in 2020, it’s gone to a completely new level and we all need to spend some time thinking about work stations, postures, and spinal health.

    EPISODE 426: The Importance of Friendship

    I spent six weeks in March and April of this year in a fairly strict lockdown in Barcelona, and then two weeks in May completely housebound in Germany. COVID-19 has affected every single aspect of my life both for good and bad.

    EPISODE 425: The Science of Sin

    The seven deadly sins are: pride, greed, wrath, envy, lust, gluttony, and sloth. Religious or not, most of us would like to avoid these behaviors, but modern technology has made the temptation almost irresistible.

    EPISODE 424: The Joy of Movement

    Many of us chase happiness but happy states are fleeting anomalies largely out of our control. If you’re experiencing true joy right now, swim and revel in it, but know that soon it will be gone.

    EPISODE 423: The Meritocracy Trap: How the Myth Feeds Inequality

    Every year I live outside the U.S. I’m able to better understand my culture simply due to my physical distance from it. I notice things like promiscuous use of peanut butter and cinnamon in American foods, the endless sports and war metaphors in colloquial language, the ubiquitous nostalgia for the post-World War II family life, and the universal belief that every underdog has a chance to go all the way up.

    EPISODE 422: The Strength Therapist

    Of all the muscles in your body, your heart muscle gets the most attention – and for good reason. Cardiovascular disease continues to be the leading cause of death in most countries, so any comprehensive fitness programs must address heart health. But all the other muscles matter too including your quads, your hamstrings, your glutes, and biceps. Ample skeletal muscle is associated with hormonal health, neurological health, and longevity, but for most people over the age of 40, they are losing mass with each passing year.
