This is Your Brain on Sleep, Supplements, Sunlight, and Stimulation — Stanford Neuroscientist Andrew Huberman, PhD
SHOW NOTES * Two big reasons for having today's guest on the show, and how I've been using Sanbo Zen meditation to stay mentally engaged and emotionally grounded during the pandemic. [00:00] * Who is Andrew Huberman? [03:35] * What's new and exciting in the world of neuroscience: how did we get here, who's getting involved, and where are we going? [05:26] * What practical applications of neuroscientific discoveries does Andrew see becoming available in the not-too-distant future? [13:37] * What is the vagus nerve, and how can it be manipulated to promote physical and mental well-being? [16:25] * The therapeutic potential of neuromodulation and how it compares to traditional treatments. [24:46] * Does treating neurological disorders (such as depression) with these new technologies last over the long haul, and is there concern they're just relieving symptoms without addressing their root causes? [27:06] * Until this technology becomes available to consumers, what does Andrew suggest for people looking to improve their mood, hone their focus, and feel more productive? [31:53] * Why exposing yourself to bright, natural light early in the day is essential for establishing optimal sleep patterns, how much is ideal, and why getting outside for your daily dose is key. [34:36] * Why Andrew doesn't endorse blue-light blocking glasses to alleviate the effects of late-night exposure, and what he recommends instead. [38:46] * Breathing exercises for stress reduction: physiological sighs contrasted with the Wim Hof method. [42:07] * A practice Andrew considers to be "the one that has had the greatest effect on everything from ability to buffer stress [to] learning and memory": yoga nidra, or NSDR (non-sleep deep rest). [49:04] * Nostril breathing versus mouth breathing. [52:32] * How it's currently believed the glymphatic system works to remove neurotoxic waste from our brains as we sleep, protecting us against degenerative conditions like Alzheimer's disease. [57:29] * Why Andrew does _not_ recommend melatonin supplements for sleep -- and what he uses instead. [1:01:29] * Supplements that may increase testosterone. [1:06:31] * The pros and possible cons of creatine. [1:08:04] * Why men shouldn't treat estrogen like an enemy, and what we should know about turmeric's effect on DHT. [1:08:44] * Why there's no catch-all supplement to increase "cognitive" function, and one of the surprising compounds some of Andrew's Nobel-winning colleagues take for focus that he doesn't personally recommend. [1:10:15] * Some cognitive-boosting supplements Andrew _does_ recommend (and a few more he definitely does _not_). [1:11:54] * Parting thoughts. [1:13:31]PEOPLE MENTIONED * Henry Shukman * Matthew MacDougall * Karl Deisseroth * Robert G. Heath * David Spiegel * Samer Hattar * David Berson * Jamie Zeitzer * Wim Hof * Brian Mackenzie * James Nestor * Sandra Kahn * Paul R. Ehrlich * Robert Sapolsky * Jared Diamond

TPP415: Where are we in the 18 Year Property Cycle?
This week we’re taking a look at where we are in the 18 year property cycle Whether you’re a new or experienced investor, the 18 year property cycle is something that you should know like the back of your hand.  For years it’s helped investors determine when they’d be most likely to invest in property and when they’re going to wait it out.  We get asked all the time ‘where are we in the 18 year property cycle?’ and even more so at the minute, ‘is the cycle broken due to Covid-19?’ Well, we’re about to find out. Here’s what to expect on this week’s property podcast episode In 2020 we were hit with a global pandemic that completely brought the property market to a grinding halt.  So naturally people were questioning what this meant for the 18 year property cycle.  But once the property market was back up and running (and more buoyant than people expected), we were then getting asked ‘does this mean we’re at the peak of the cycle?’ If you’re new to the podcast and have no idea what the 18 year property cycle is then don’t worry because we’re going to give you a recap in this episode.  According to the average 18 year cycle, we should now be in the mid-cycle wobble phase.  But is that true or has Covid-19 changed the course? Tune in to find out.   In the news We’ve got two news stories for you this week.  The first one is a note on the evictions ban being extended again. It was due to end on the 22nd February and has been extended to the 31st March at the earliest.  Chances of it being extended again are pretty likely, even though we’re on the right path it’s still not 100% certain that we’ll be back to normal by then.  Another possible policy extension is on the stamp duty holiday. This could be extended by a further six weeks, which isn’t a huge timeframe. A lot of people will complete in time but there will also be many who slip through the net.    Hub extra This week’s Hub Extra resource is a book that Rob B has been reading.  The book was actually a recommendation from a YouTuber called Ali Abdaal and it’s a book called ‘A Million Miles in a Thousand Years’ by Donald Miller.  It’s the story of a writer who was approached by Hollywood screenwriters who wanted to tell his life story.  But when they started putting it together it turned out that it wasn’t very interesting or inspiring and that really made Donald reflect on his life and he decided to live a better story.  In a way it really resonates with the type of reflection that we’ve all gone through over the past year and how we can live a better life when we come out of the coronavirus pandemic on the other side.   Let’s get social We’d love to hear what you think of this week’s Property Podcast over on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. You might even have a topic you’d like us to cover in the future - if so, pop us a message on social and we’ll see what we can do. Make sure you’ve liked and subscribed to our YouTube channel where we upload new content every week!  If that wasn’t enough, you can also join our friendly property community on the Property Hub forum.

How to Dramatically Increase Your Fees (The 6 Areas)
In today’s brief but powerful episode, Rob talks his audience through the six areas where you can increase your fees. These include the knowledge plus experience formula, his unique take on the ‘hero and the guide’, increasing your self worth, over subscribing your services and not forgetting the easiest one of all – offering great service.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Knowledge plus experience equals results. If you gain more knowledge in something, turn it into an experience of things you do or things you’ve done and you get proven results; this is a winning formula to increase your fees.   Your self worth equals your net worth. If you increase your own feeling of how you perceive yourself; your own value in the market place, your confidence, your volition, your passion of delivery and understanding that you have value, your fees will go up.   Most people when they’re positioning and promoting themselves put themselves as the ‘hero’ whereas you might want to position yourself as the ‘guide’. Make your client the hero. Use your testimonials, your results in the market – they will sell better than you can. Get recommendations and referral’s from your clients and contacts and don’t be afraid to ask for these.   The more value you offer, the higher your fees can be. Keep offering more and more value. Perceived over actual hard costs to you means you can sustain a fair margin.   Sell your stuff out! Over subscribe the services you offer, have more demand than supply and everyone will want in. Get to the point where you’re full and then increase your fees.   Make sure you’re offering great service – care, serve, solve, fix problems, be kind, look after your clients and think about the small details.   BEST MOMENTS ‘What you know still has value’ ‘Your self worth equals your net worth’ ‘If you don’t believe in yourself, why should anyone else?’ ‘You cannot fill from an empty cup’ ‘Facts tell but stories sell’ ‘Serve more than you ask for, give more than you take’   VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter   ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Li Jin: Creating the Creator Economy
My guest today is Li Jin, the founder and managing partner at an early-stage venture capital firm called Atelier. She's known for her extensive writings about the Passion Economy.

We talk about what it'll take to build a middle class for creators and how platforms should enable creator monetization. But then we venture beyond the world of work and discuss the novels of Jane Austen, what Li learned by growing up in Pittsburgh, and why she thinks social media and content creation are valuable pursuits.

Optimize Your Brain with Science-based Tools | Episode 8
In this episode, I describe how to access focused learning bouts, creative states, and the underlying neural circuitry involved. I frame this in the context of our daily 24-hour cycle in order to make it practical, clear and precise about timing. I review the role of fasting, meal timing and specific types of nutrients for promoting certain states of mind. I also review various other tools and biological factors that directly or indirectly gate brain function and that we can control. I answer commonly asked questions about the science of psychedelics, binaural beats, and visualization. Thank you for your interest in science!
