Today on the podcast, Mason's joined by CrossFit legend, 2019's 5th fittest man in the world, and newly Australian Men's bobsled competitor, James Newbury for an inspiring conversation around the world of high performance; where mindset is everything and consistency is the key. Whether doing intense training for the World CrossFit Games or leveling up to compete and train with the Australian Men's bobsled team, James Newbury is very familiar with the realms of mental and physical peak performance. He understands the score of what works, what doesn't, and above all, the discipline and stamina it requires. The boys talk Float therapy, CrossFit, bobsledding, mental and physical preparation, and James drops a bunch of knowledge on the breathing, visualisation, and recovery techniques he uses to push himself to his peak. An insightful junction between high-performance sport and business with Mason and James bringing their insights to the table. Make sure you tune in! Mason and James discuss: * Hot and cold water therapy protocols post-workout. * Quarantine routine; What James did to maximise his time in quarantine. * Bobsledding with the Australian men's team at the European Cup. * High performance rest and recovery. * How James gears up for training, post time off from CrossFit. * Maximising the body for optimal performance and longevity. * Mental and physical preparation. * Why consistency and discipline are key ingredients to any form of high performance. * The health benefits of Float Therapy. * The power of visualisation. * How James combines visualisation and his Floating time. * Maximising the gains of training and rest. * Maintaining balance and minimising stress for high performance periods. * Breathwork techniques James uses to get him through his most intense training and competing. * Pre and post-workout diet/Supplements; Cordyceps, MSM, and others. Who is James Newbury? With a background in semi-professional Rugby League, James Newbury has dabbled in many sports. Finding his passion in CrossFit in 2011, James has consistently worked to earn himself a name both nationally and internationally within the CrossFit arena. Named Australia’s fittest 4 X times, and coming away from the 2019 World CrossFit games with a placing of 5th, he earned himself the title of 5th fittest man on Earth. Newbury is somewhat of a master at pushing himself both physically and mentally. 2020 saw a break away from the CrossFit scene due to COVID 19 implications, opening up the time and opportunity for James to develop tiny-timer ( https://www.tiny-timer.com), a remote-controlled, pocket-sized timer that is magnetic mounted and battery-operated. In 2020 James successfully trialed with the Australian Men's bobsled team, going on to represent Australia as part of the Aussie Men’s team in The 2020 European Cup.

Everyone loved the chat, as did I last time. And as you just mentioned, you can probably know that one of the people that loved it the most was our warehouse manager, Wazza, who wrote to you to say it. James Newbury: (00:19) Yeah, yeah, yeah. I've been chatting with him a little bit about his floating experience and his ice experience. He's just got himself a float tank and an ice bath, so I've got the same at my house as well, and it's stuff that I like to use for my recovery on a regular basis, and we did have our float tank here at the gym. This is actually the old float room which I'm sitting in currently. Mason: (00:42) Cool. James Newbury: (00:44) But now we have it at home in our spare room, so I can get it all done there. If I want to have a float, then go straight to bed. But yeah, we've been talking shop about cold therapy and the benefits of floating, and just escaping the outer world and trying to do some rest and recovery stuff, which I absolutely love. And visualising training sessions and visualising workouts and visualising competitions, I think a float tank has so many benefits. We've been chatting about that type of stuff and we've also been talking about how cold we've gone with the ice bath, and then I was also mentioning that I've just come back from Europe, I've being spend a bit of time in Europe, and I mentioned that I jumped in a canal over in Europe and it was minus something. James Newbury: (01:33) Minus a few degrees in the canal [inaudible 00:01:35] is pretty cold, so we jumped in there and spent a bit of time in there, did some breath work. And I was just saying how invigorated I felt after getting in the canal, and it would have been... I don't know, would have been a degree, in fact it was pretty icy. So yeah. Some of the stuff that I really enjoy doing and then we also compared it to what I've currently got now at the ocean here, which is like a bath that's, I don't know, probably 18 degrees which is mega hot compared to where I was which was minus 10 for half the time. Mason: (02:07) How long have you been doing your cold plunging? James Newbury: (02:10) I've been doing hot and cold and ice baths and things for, I would have to say, we were still doing it when I was playing football back in the day, but regular. Regular cold, like cold showers and things, probably the last like four or five years, and I've been floating since 2012. Yeah. I spent a bit of time, but now it's much more regular, now that I have just something in my house where I can be like, "Okay, cool," finish a session, jump in, have a cold shower, rinse off, jump in the ice bath, do three minutes, jump out. This week so far I've done maybe eight or nine cold plunges, so it's a more regular thing now. Mason: (02:55) Do you find for you and your metabolism and your body, because you're working out so much as well I assume, when you're doing your plunging, do you ever reach your glass ceiling or for you is it like more the better? James Newbury: (03:13) Look, I think everyone is a little bit different, I love the feeling that I get after it. Look, I know that there's been some studies showing that immediately plunging after a heavy weight session or a heavy lifting session, it can potentially slow down or inhibit muscle growth and things like that, but it's only very minor, it's so slim, and for me I'm not looking to build tonnes of muscle. I'm not looking to do anything like that, I'm just looking to be really strong, be really fit and still be flexible, and I want to bounce back from my training. So I guess if you're really looking for the muscular growth and things like that, you probably want to delay your ice bath after your weight sessions by two or three hours and you should have the effects then. But for me if I do a heavy cardio session I'll typically go and jump straight in the sauna, usually do around 40 to 45 minutes in the sauna post-workout, and then I'll always finish off with cold. James Newbury: (04:15) So I never finish with heat, I always finish with cold. And I like my body to regulate from that cold experience. It's so invigorating and it also helps put you to sleep too, so decreasing that body temperature which we do before we go to bed, it's also really help to put into a nice really deep sleep. Mason: (04:31) Yeah. Nice. I've been really trying to reconcile with it because I was always, probably from when I was 21, especially if I found a wild water source, if you were t…

Ep. 178: Ways to Break the Cycle of Perfectionism with Menije Boduryan
Welcome back to another episode of Your Anxiety Toolkit Podcast. Today we have on an amazing guest and therapist, Menije Boduryan. Menije is an OCD specialist as well as a specialist on perfectionism. She is here today to talk to us about perfectionism and to give us some tips on how to manage perfectionism in our own lives. Menije defines perfectionism as a drive to do things perfectly with anything less than 100% being unacceptable. It is a desire to want everything to be flawless and in that desire, comes a lot of expectations or rules that people set for themselves. She explains that perfectionism becomes a mindset and you begin to operate in the world expecting yourself to be perfect, as well as your partner, your best friend, your clothes, your work desk, what you eat, and how you exercise to all be perfect. It becomes powerful because our self-identity becomes so attached to this idea of being perfect. It is not just about the desire to do things perfectly, but it also becomes a belief that once you do things perfectly, then you are enough, you are worthy. Menije shares with us a bit about her own struggles with perfectionism and how perfectionism impacts our relationships. She describes how it is really possible to fall into a cycle with perfectionism. If you fall short in something you are doing, which you inevitably will, you start into the cycle of feeling shame and that you are not good enough so you then strive to work harder the next time to achieve that level of perfection. Menije shares with us one of the best ways to break out of that cycle of perfectionism is really to just give ourselves a tremendous amount of self-compassion. Recognizing that whatever happens today, I am worthy and I am enough. She also describes that breaking out of the cycle involves being able to tolerate your imperfections. Really being able to sit with the discomfort and anxiety that will come when you have done something that is not perfect. She describes it as very similar to exposure therapy. This interview is full of so many amazing insights. I hope you will find it as helpful and as meaningful as I did.

Honoring Black HSP Leaders of this Generation and Generations to Come with Michael Coles
How we overcome the inner battles we face and what fuels our strength to show up in our own unique way. We can remember and honor the Black leaders before us and we can also honor the new and upcoming leaders during Black History Month.  Black HSP's can struggle more than others with the inner dialogue of who we should be in the world and deeply feel the turmoil and injustice in the world.  Both of our generation and generations before us.   We all want to find our own path and can be faced with family or authorities telling us who we should be, cannot be or will never be.   I want to have a conversation with other Black HSP's who struggle with choosing to become the leader they are meant to be or settling into the identity that others put upon you.  We are all whole and complete as we are and have the power to heal old wounds and beliefs to become the leader we were meant to be within and without. Holistic Health Practitioner and Health Strategy Coach LMT, CES, FMS Bio: Michael is on a mission to teach the world that we are all capable of intrinsic healing and transformation both mentally and physically. If we start with foundational health, we can build upon this foundation to create the empowered life we want to live. Michael overcame, healed, and transformed from having Tourette syndrome, severe asthma, ADHD, obesity, and an eating addiction and now helps others embody health to become empowered to live a life of joy, peace and success. He is a US Marine, a Holistic Health Practitioner, and Health Strategy Coach. https://michaelacoles.com/ Michael also did a previous event with us Tapping into your Guidance System to Take Aligned Action --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/julie-bjelland/message

Hypnosis for Permanent Weight Loss
Hypnosis for Permanent Weight Loss
Leslie M. Thornton
Ep 47 It's your fault
It’s true; there’s no one else to fault for but you. Whatever happens to your life now is all of your own makings. Why are you still stuck with food in your thoughts? Why can you not seem to trim down those pounds off your body? You’ve been all through those sorts of diets before. You succeeded; you failed. Here you are still at it, numbing everything you feel lacking in other aspects of your life with food. But it isn’t working because that only shows you something is missing that is way deeper than you think. Nothing works without integrity. What you need is clarity. Go for what is authentic to you. Go after what you believe is true for you and not what others want for you. If you won’t care to admit that there’s something in you that you need to work on, nothing happens. Until when do you pretend not to know? Until when do you acknowledge your unhappiness? Don’t wait to carry it for too long. The body carries those emotions, tensions, and stress. And what you do then is, take comfort in food to numb all those pain away. And the cycle goes on and on. This is where Hypnosis helps you, quieting down those inner voices that you keep telling yourself over again that aren’t of any help to you. How then to follow your path of highest excitement? Take action. Be brave. And step up! The food is not your enemy; you are the enemy if you don’t take action. There is a way out, and YOU are the way. “If it's not something that you're choosing that works for you, then it's not going to stay; it’s not going to stick.” - Leslie Thornton What you will learn from today’s episode: 00:57 - Without integrity, nothing works 02:50 - What is the surefire way to start making things work in your life? 07:02 - Find your inner truth 09:14 - Do what your unique self, heart, and soul is calling you to do 13:07 - What are you pretending not to know? 14:01 - Nothing’s going to change unless you change 15:13 - You need to start being a different way to get a different result 17:04 - Diseases manifest as the result of unresolved emotions and issues within your true self 18:00 - If nothing’s happening -- you are missing something way deeper 19:36 - Take things one fear at a time 23:46 - Start surrendering 27:36 - Food is not your enemy, it’s yourself if you are not taking action 28:10 - Be willing to take action and face your fears - you will have a life that you want 29:43 - Hypnosis helps you heal the mind to get your way to success Connect With Leslie Thornton: * WeighLossAlbany.com * E: Leslie@LeslieMThornton.com * Facebook * Twitter * LinkedIn
