Beyond the To Do List
Every year, I try to pick up a new habit but it never sticks longer than a few weeks (last year I tried meditation) and dropping any bad habits you can completely forget about. This episode is worth the listen for just the “two minute rule” advice itself and it also contains a bunch of small little gems that might be more fitting for you. It might even lay the foundation to anything you want to do for the year. Sidenote: I haven’t read the book yet but if you feel so inclined, you can grab it here.
Voices of Esalen
New Year, new attitude, and basically trying to get any bad vibes from around me. This episode is a blueprint on how to develop that internal core of calm, strength, and appreciation, while reducing suffering and anxiety. It also gives a good mental framework (one I’ve always thought was counter intuitive) on how to be ambitious and aspirational whilst being at peace with yourself.

This episode from a podcast called The Dumbbells with comedians Eugene Cordero (The Good Place) and Ryan Stanger have guests come on and talk about fitness, health, and diet, sometimes while working out. This here is a good primer if you ever wanted to run a half-marathon but didn’t know where to start. It’s a light hearted breezy episode that’s just funny and on/off topic enough to get you motivated but not hit you over the head with the “motivation”.
Eat well - feel well, and wait on line at Sweetgreen for an hour long - well. This podcast is from Dr. Rhonda Patrick who breaks down the science of nutrition and its effects on health.
