How Having Friends and Being Kind Make You Healthy & The Story of the Hamburger
Will you be traveling over the holidays? Obviously, the spike in Covid-19 cases is causing people to reconsider travel and family get-togethers. Listen as this episode begins with the results of a survey about just how many people will or won’t be traveling over Thanksgiving and Christmas. Source: https://bit.ly/32SL0eB When you think about what’s really important to your health, you likely think of medical care, diet and exercise. So what if I told you that friendship and kindness also have a huge impact? They do according to Kelli Harding, MD and author of The Rabbit Effect: Live Longer, Happier, and Healthier with the Groundbreaking Science of Kindness (https://amzn.to/3ptNlXb). Listen as she explains the surprising research that proves being kind and having positive social connections will help you live a long and healthy life.  If you think the hamburger came from Hamburg, Germany, you are only technically correct.

127. Good Habits, Bad Habits: An Interview with Wendy Wood
Today I am so excited to introduce you to Dr. Wendy Wood. Her fantastic new book Good Habits Bad Habits (which I mentioned last week was voted book of the year in the Habit Weekly Awards) is just one of the many amazing things she has contributed to the field of habits. Much of what we know about habits is thanks to Wendy’s research. The things we now know about how habits work and what they’re doing in the brain is in large part because of her. Wendy is a social psychologist whose research looks into the ways habits guide behavior and why they are so difficult to break. She is provost professor of psychology and business at the University of Southern California and has been Associate Editor of Psychological Review, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Personality and Social Psychology Review, and Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin. She is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association, the American Psychological Society, the Society for Experimental Social Psychology, and a founding member of the Society for Research Synthesis. Her research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, National Institute of Mental Health, and Rockefeller Foundation. Prior to joining USC, Professor Wood was James B. Duke Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience and Professor of Marketing at Duke University, and she is just a lovely person whom I really enjoyed talking to. Show Notes: * [00:42] Today I am so excited to introduce you to Dr. Wendy Wood. Her fantastic new book Good Habits Bad Habits is just one of the many amazing things she has contributed to the field of habits. * [02:47] Wendy is a social psychologist whose research looks into the ways habits guide behavior and why they are so difficult to break. * [04:52] Habits are part of our unconscious. They are a way our brain learns by connecting what we’ve done in a given context that got us a reward. * [05:20] All mammals have a habit learning system. * [07:05] With a habit you are repeating what you have done before while your mind is off solving other problems. * [08:41] A habit frees our mind to do other things. When the habit is disrupted, we are stuck back having to make decisions. (Brain doesn’t like that!) * [09:45] COVID has disrupted all of our habits and we had to start making decisions about things we don’t usually have to think about. * [10:36] Wendy recommends not expecting as much from yourself during the uncertainty of the pandemic. * [11:05] Once we are removed from our habits, sometimes we end up finding things that work better. (Be open to that possibility!) * [14:25] Research found that for habitual runners the place where they typically ran activated thoughts of running. Those thoughts perpetuate their behavior. * [16:08] The context in which you typically perform the behavior can trigger thoughts of that behavior. (Reinforcing it.) * [17:30] Context activates habits and we usually act on those habits in mind. Goals are what drive the more occasional behaviors that we have to make a decision to do. * [19:01] If you do an activity in the same way every time, you are more likely to form a habit. You also want to be able to repeat it regularly. Also, look for what makes it rewarding to you, as we are more likely to repeat behaviors that we find rewarding. * [20:42] Research has shown that it is important to find ways to perform the habit easily. You will do something more if it is easier. We can often set up our environment in a way that would make it more likely that we will perform the habit. * [23:15] There is a lot of science behind the importance of making good habits easy for us. * [24:15] Along with making the desired behavior easier, you want to make the things that are more problematic (those you want to avoid or stop doing), more difficult. * [26:04] Wendy recommends reverse engineering what your environment is pushing you to do. * [27:38] If you can incorporate the desired behavior into your daily routine it is so much easier to get yourself to do them. Anything that adds to the hassle makes it more likely you will not do it. * [30:01] Wendy shares her favorite study (which also happens to be the one she is currently working on). * [32:01] They found that social media revenue is closely tied to habitual use. * [33:26] Thoughts and tips for marketers on using habits for good. * [35:52] Product manufactures have to take habits seriously. * [36:47] The trick is keeping up with current development while also taking advantage of the cues that already keep your habitual customers coming back. * [39:01] Weight loss programs, in general, don’t benefit from you losing weight and keeping it off. Their model revolves around repeat customers. * [41:09] If you want to change your behavior, the way you typically go about it is not the most effective. We focus on our conscious decision-making self while our habits run in the background. * [43:31] If you can make it easier in your life to do the right thing and harder to do the thing that is being a problem. You will make it easier to change your behavior. * [46:23] Don’t forget to take advantage of the year-end sale going on now. Thanks for listening.

Searching for the Oldest Stars (Prof. Anna Frebel)
For millions of years after the Big Bang, nearly all the matter in the universe was in the form of hydrogen and helium; other elements like carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen only formed later, in nuclear reactions inside stars. To learn what the universe looked like back then, MIT astrophysicist Anna Frebel studies the oldest stars we can find—13 billion years old, to be precise—scanning them for traces of elements that will give a clue to their history. As Professor Frebel explains to Sarah Hansen in this episode, curiosity about the origins of the universe we live in is a profoundly human trait, just like curiosity about one’s own family history. To help communicate to laypeople the wonder and amazement that motivates astronomers like herself, Prof. Frebel has written a book and recorded a companion series of videos, both of which are intentionally designed to be as user-friendly as possible. It doesn’t matter, she says, if viewers and readers don’t grasp all the details; her hope is that they will develop the desire to understand more, and that that desire will spark further learning.

Managing Natural Tensions: The balance of value
Episode #117 // Every organisation inherently has a number of natural tensions between different groups and functions - finance vs marketing; sales vs operations; operations vs asset management; IT and… virtually everyone! Rather than trying to eliminate these tensions, leaders should concentrate on using them to get better outcomes. It’s through nurturing and managing natural tensions that you’ll find a balance - this will improve your decision-making, and ultimately create the greatest value for your organisation. There are no black-and-white answers to this question, but there are some practical principles and philosophies you can employ. In this episode, I provide some useful tips for managing natural tensions in order to improve the value outcomes of your team.  // We are on a mission to hit 1 million listens by the 31st December 2020. To help us to reach this goal, and impact even more leaders just like you who would benefit from the strategies and tools that Marty covers in the podcast, please share the podcast with your network. You can also subscribe, follow, rate and review the podcast, that will help more leaders find us when they’re searching for a new leadership podcast to binge on. If we hit our goal, we will be running a completely free live virtual leadership event in February 2021, and we would love for you to be there! Keep up with the live listener number and see how close we are to our goal at www.yourceomentor.com/stats     See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
