    EPISODE 439: Mindfulness a Solution for Addiction?

    If we define addiction as continued behavior despite adverse consequences, we all have cause for concern. Perhaps you’re up so late watching Netflix that you make a mistake at work that costs you your job; maybe your pornography compulsion blocks real intimacy with your partner and derails your marriage; or maybe your online gambling leaves you with maxed out credit cards.

    EPISODE 438: Respiratory Therapy

    If you’re interested in pranayama and breathwork, there is so much more to discover than simply “oxygenation.” As a student of yoga breathing for over a decade, there continues to be a lack of real scientific teaching, so on this week’s podcast, we’ll nerd out on biomechanics and chemistry of breathing.

    EPISODE 437: CBD for Pain & Sleep

    Marijuana is quickly becoming legal or at least decriminalized in most states. Billions of dollars of previously criminal revenue is suddenly on-the-books and taxable, and hundreds of products are flooding the market including everything from skincare to nutritional supplements.

    EPISODE 436: Reflexology & Energy Balance

    Set and setting are often overlooked when it comes to healing. Set refers to your mindset going in, and setting refers to the environment in which the treatment takes place. If you walk into a therapist’s office with a “This will be so helpful!” attitude, and if the office is beautiful, smells nice, and is dimly lit, the deck has already been stacked in favor of a positive outcome.

    EPISODE 435: The Power of Pessimism – COVID-19 Survival

    What if this COVID-19 crisis lasts another six months? Or another two years? Our work and lifestyles are being radically redefined, and most people are taking a “wait and see’ approach, doubling down on Netflix, and waiting for big pharma to fix this mess.

    EPISODE 434: Understanding Your Bloodwork

    When was the last time you went to your doctor for a checkup? Did you make any requests or did you just let them do their thing and trust they’d let you know if something was amiss?

    EPISODE 433: Reverse Aging with Lifelong “Play”

    Aging starts with the loss of lean muscle and mobility. Next, you notice you’re not sharp as you used to be, and then things accelerate as you become less active, less engaged in the world, and one step closer to the grave. Death is inevitable, but “healthspan” is something we can control: how healthy will you be in those years you do have on this planet? Do you want to die riding a skateboard or stuck in a nursing facility? Do you want your best years to be in the past or in the future?

    EPISODE 432: Sex Robots & Vegan Meat

    Disruptive technology has defined our generation and captured our imaginations. I haven’t owned a television or a landline phone since the 90s. Google Maps makes it possible to navigate any city as a tourist with more accuracy than a local resident, and healthy food becomes cheaper and more accessible every day.

    EPISODE 431: How to Succeed with Yoga & Fitness At Home

    COVID-19 has forced and inspired hundreds of millions of people to start at-home yoga practices and exercise routines – this is amazing! But how do you make it last? How do you stay motivated? 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.
