Morgan Housel on The Psychology of Money
This week’s conversation is with Morgan Housel, a partner at The Collaborative Fund and a former columnist at The Motley Fool and The Wall Street Journal.  He is a two-time winner of the Best in Business Award from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers, winner of the New York Times Sidney Award, and a two-time finalist for the Gerald Loeb Award for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism. Morgan recently published a book titled, The Psychology of Money, and it’s the impetus for why I wanted to talk to him. If you’ve listened to this podcast for a while, you know I live by this stance: having a philosophy for your life is imperative... What I hope you take from this conversation is that the same can be said for how you think about money. There isn’t simply one "right" way to manage your money, but it should align with the greater values you live by. At one point in our conversation, Morgan shares that he doesn’t have a mortgage on his house, that he owns it outright. I was a bit stumped at first because it would appear, especially in our current climate with how low interest rates are, that this is foolish. Isn’t there a huge opportunity cost to that? But Morgan is clear on his principles, what makes him feel secure, and what’s “enough” for him... not having to think about a mortgage is something that’s important to him. So this conversation isn’t focused so much on what to do with your money, but the importance of having clarity on the reasons why you choose to do, what you do, with it.  ----- Please support our partners!

Mira Kirshenbaum | The Biggest Myth About Arguments & How to Deal With Finances In A Relationship
In today’s episode, we cover relationships and conflict resolution with Mira Kirshenbaum. Mira is the author of eleven books, the co-founder and clinical director of The Chestnut Hill Institute in Boston, an internationally recognized center for research and psychotherapy for couples, families and individuals, and has been a workshop leader and trainer for medical professionals at Harvard Medical School and other institutions.   Despite what Hollywood tells us, relationships are not easy and are not always pleasant, so why do couples fight, how do we resolve conflicts in a way that both partners can be satisfied with the outcome, and how do we reframe love in the 21st century to be a reasonable goal we can work toward?   What to Listen For   Why Do Couples Fight - 1:57    Why do couples fight and what do you need to stop doing to prevent future fights? Why do we imitate the power moves of our parents in our own relationships? What does it mean to feel disempowered in a relationship? How do people use distance to hurt their significant other and what can we do to overcome that?     The 8 Core Experiences of Love - 11:00 (starts with AJ saying, “When we think about fights…”)   What should you do everyday to build and maintain healthy relationships with the people you care about? What does it mean to be fair in a relationship? What question should you ask to find out how best to support your significant other when you’re not sure what to do? What does it mean to show respect for your significant other? Is passion a one time thing in a relationship, or is it cyclical?   Conflict Resolution in Relationships - 28:30 (starts with AJ saying, “Now we had Annie Duke on our show…”) How can you use quantification to solve arguments in your relationships? What is the 1-2-3 method and how can you use it to stop arguments from blowing up? What questions can you ask your partner to better understand their concerns about an issue you two are facing? What are the 2 magic questions you should always be ready to ask when you and your partner are facing an issue? What can you do to handle the financial side of a relationship so it doesn’t ruin a great partnership? What do power moves look like that revolve around money?   Reframing Love in the 21st Century - 46:00 What is the biggest myth about love in modern times and what can we do to reframe love so it is not based on fairy tales? How much work is necessary for maintaining a successful relationship? What are the 4 kinds of relationships and what can you learn from them so you know what to avoid in the future? What are the most important steps to take and conversations to have before you have children?   Relationships are often portrayed as the happy ending and the beginning of a trouble-free life filled with love and affection. But any healthy relationship is going to take a lot of work and communication - they don’t just happen. People are too different from one another to be able to come to a quick & easy agreement on everything. We all have different beliefs, thoughts, and expectations about love and relationships, and even life. We must be willing to learn about each other and if you want a relationship to last, both of you must put in the work to maintain it.   A Word From Our Sponsors Share your vulnerabilities, victories, and questions in our 17,000-member private Facebook group at theartofcharm.com/challenge.

How To Turn A Glass Of Water Into A Pharmaceutical, Supplement, Remedy & "Information Carrier" Using The Science Of Infopathy.
bengreenfieldfitness.com/anton I've talked in the past about the use of inaudible sound waves to elicit specific brain wave and neurotransmitter responses, specifically with a device called the "Apollo," which I discuss in this podcast. I've also been exploring the use of magnetic waves to elicit certain neurotransmitter responses, via a device called a "Hapbee," which can simulate chemicals such as caffeine, nicotine, melatonin, MDMA, etc. to elicit a physiological response without the actual intake of supplements, pharmaceuticals, or any other compounds or medicines. I'll be doing a podcast on this device soon. And finally, I've now been experimenting with a so-called "Infopathy" device (use code BENG10 for 10% off any of their devices), which "imprints" water, or your body, with frequencies of everything from St. John's Wort to coffee to Viagra to anything else you want from their literal hundreds of "infoceutical" options. It's so fascinating that I just had to get the inventor on the show! Anton Fedorenko, the creator of the Infopathy devices, received his BASc in applied physics and mathematics and MASc in innovation and high technologies from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in Russia. For 10 years, Anton has been involved with several water-related projects wherein he not only conducted fundamental research but also developed water-related products and web-based platforms. From 2013 to 2017, he was a member of the organizing committee for the annual Water Conference on the Physics, Chemistry, and Biology of Water. In 2018, Anton founded Ash•Nu Technologies Inc. and is currently developing two platforms: Infopathy and AquaPsy. Infopathy allows users to transfer infoceuticals (ICs) for health, cosmetic, veterinary, and gardening purposes anytime, anywhere. AquaPsy takes consciousness research to a whole new level. Through AquaPsy, people from around the world can be connected remotely to water-based sensors, which can detect and evaluate influences caused by non-local mind effects. Both these platforms help one rediscover themselves from the quantum view. During this discussion, you'll discover: -Infopathy defined...9:05 * An online platform where people can download signals recorded from various substances * Use properties for medications without actual substances * Naturopaths have used this practice for years * First publication on the topic was in 1922 (how metals affect blood vessels in rabbits) * Memory of water is a term associated with infopathy * Why Water, Sunlight, Grounding & Relationships Are The Keys To Your Health & How To Feed, Clean & Protect Your Body Forever: An Interview With Ben Greenfield’s Father Gary Greenfield. * Similar, but not the same as homeopathy * Article: What Are Infoceuticals? * Infoceutical FAQs -Quantum Electro Dynamic (QED) theory applied to everyday life...13:30 * Video on the QED theory * Should water be consumed immediately after being treated? * Consume within 3 days * Avoid exposure to WiFi or cell phones * Miron glass to protect herbs and nutrients from radiation * 1 tsp of salt added into the water to increases the efficacy of infopathy (mineralized water is more stable) * IC Pad for charging water (use code BENG10 to save 10%) -Mixing many ingredients into treated water...18:30 * A "complex" is a mix of several ingredients into one water * Suggestions for complexes in order to get the desired result * Public complexes are created by practitioners via a peer-reviewed process * Running a new infoceutical on top of an existing one will override the old one -The wearable that allows you to transmit infoceuticals...22:30 * IC Hummer wearable device, that can also be used on water (use code BENG10 to save 10%) * If you don't have the IC Pad, wrap the Hummer around the water and get the same effect * IC Pad is slightly faster than the Hummer and also contains herbs * The IC Hummer can be attached to the body and absorbed while you do stuff * Get a better effect if you wear two IC Hummers at once * You can be up to 30 feet away from the device and get the effect * A wired device will be more effective than a bluetooth device -PEMF used to transfer infoceuticals into the body...29:45 * Files are stored in audio format * The PEMF absorbs the electromagnetic waves that are present in the audio * Some infoceuticals are PEMF only: must be plugged in, no Bluetooth * PEMF infoceuticals are best applied directly to the body, not by drinking imprinted water * Three types of infoceuticals: * Imprint - signals created from substances; physical products (with any device or via water) * PEMF - use them with Glowing IC Pad or IC Hummer to emit PEM waves (wearable and wireless) * Audible - does not require a device are used with headphones or with the IC Hummer (also emits acoustic waves) * PEMFs are directly applied to the body -Liquids other than water that can be used to transfer infoceuticals to the body...34:05 * Liquid should not be hotter than 30°C (around 90°F) * Molecules move too fast for it to be effective * Ben did a liver and gallbladder transfer via a chilled cocktail -Legitimate research that has been conducted on infoceuticals...37:00 * Publications listed on Infopathy website * Study on Metformin's effects on Type 2 diabetes is forthcoming -Ben and Anton's favorite infoceuticals and best practices...41:35 * Imprint into water * Treat pain behind eyes * Prep 1.5 liter and use throughout the day * Trauma complex * Testosterone * Sildenafil * Complex for adrenal fatigue * Multiple imprint infoceuticals transfer simultaneously * PEMF is best transferred one by one via a playlist * BioCharger -Infoceuticals that are appropriate for plants and animals...48:05 * Miracle Gro plant booster, which includes minerals * Quinton sea minerals * Hypertonic seawater -Appropriate frequency of use for infoceuticals...49:20 * Imprinted and PEMF require regular use to maintain the effects * IC Pad can be made wireless with an inexpensive adapter * Occasional Bluetooth exposure is not as problematic as constant exposure -Tips on creating infoceutical complexes...52:22 * Miron glass water-dropper bottles Resources from this episode: - Anton Fedorenko: * Infopathy (use code BENG10 to save 10%) * Glowing IC Pad * IC Hummer * Circuit IC Pad * M.I.N.D. * For eyes * Liver and gallbladder support * Trauma complex * Testosterone * Sildenafil * Complex for adrenal fatigue * Hypertonic seawater * Miracle Gro * Ash•Nu Technologies Inc. * AquaPsy - Podcast: * Why Water, Sunlight, Grounding & Relationships Are The Keys To Your Health & How To Feed, Clean & Protect Your Body Forever: An Interview With Ben Greenfield’s Father Gary Greenfield. - Gear: * Hapbee * Apollo * Headphones * BioCharger - Other resources: * Quinton Sea Minerals * Sea Salt * Miron Glass * Water Conference on the Physics, Chemistry, and Biology of Water * Nikolai P.

Everything Is A Practice: Raghunath Cappo
Replace ego with the eternal. Trade selfishness for service—and self-absorption for unity. Together, let’s explore the spark of divinity that resides within us all. Meet Raghunath Cappo. Punk rock icon. Spiritual warrior. Bhakti yoga devotee. A teen in search of meaning, Ray Cappo fled his suburban Connecticut enclave for New York City—and found community among the misfits of Manhattan’s Lower East Side. He fell in love with punk rock, so he started a band and a record label. Success soon followed. By the late 1980’s, Youth of Today had thousands of fans, cementing Ray as a leading voice and trendsetter at the bullseye of hardcore culture. However, a growing existential itch led Ray to call it quits. At just 22, he walked away from his band and label and decamped for India—a spiritual pilgrimage that led him to the holy village of Vrindavan. It was there that Ray fell in love with the wisdom and traditions of Bhakti yoga. It was there that he would remain for the next six years, living as a monk. It was there that Ray became Raghunath. This is the incredible story of a modern day yogi. But it’s also about the search we all go on. The journey for personal meaning beyond the ego. And the quest for universal consequence beyond the material. It’s about the timeless that lives and breathes within all of us—that which is eternal, and past our limited senses. It’s about transcending the illusions that hold us back. What it means to truly devote oneself to greater truth. And the modern day challenges of trudging the path towards higher consciousness. All told, it’s about what it really means to be a spiritual being having a human experience. If you’ve enjoyed my conversations with musicians John Joseph & Toby Morse, spiritual leaders Guru Singh & Radhanath Swami, or modern seekers Andy Puddicombe, Jason Garner & Russell Brand, then I’m confident this will be your jam.

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

Initial signs of depression and anxiety can manifest through minor issues like losing your nerves about your in-laws or getting angry for no reason at all. But what if there is a way to fight depression with the food you eat? What might surprise you: Your current diet might be the source of your anxiety and depression. Your mood is directly impacted by what you eat. With the proper evidence-based nutrition, it is possible to take control of anxiety, boost your mood and live a life full of joy. In this episode of Health Theory, Tom Bilyeu is joined by Nutritional Psychiatrist, Men’s Health advisor, and author Drew Ramsey to discuss such matters and more as they explore the current state of depression. They also explain why nutrition is the easiest way of influencing depression positively and uncover a psychological lever to reduce your anxiety. Furthermore they disclose the way your anxiety is influenced by the foods you eat, which foods you should avoid and finally why you shouldn´t lose hope if you currently struggle with mental illness.   PRE-ORDER DR. RAMSEY'S BOOK: https://amzn.to/2ZRDTBq   SHOW NOTES: The current state of depression. [01:05] Why nutrition is the easiest way of influencing depression positively. [1:25] A psychological lever to reduce your anxiety. [2:41] How your anxiety is influenced by the food you eat and the food that causes Tom anxiety. [3:36] What creates lasting change, and how to lead with kindness to change behavior. [6:44] Why most diets fail. [8:40] The food basics almost every Nutritional Psychiatrist agrees on and why they matter. [9:25] Drew reveals the things that are NOT part of every good diet. [12:03] One thing Tom and Drew disagree on. [14:29] Why knowing where your food comes from can help you cure loneliness. [19:11] The big benefits of eating seafood and the top 3 kinds of seafood to beat depression. [24:40] How Omega 3 fats in seafood work like snipers in your immune system. [28:00] Drew´s on being vegan and which fats are bad for you. [30:25] What you should rather do than buying expensive tests and supplements. [33:35] How moving away from New York to a farm improved the mental health of Drew. [34:34] Why you shouldn´t lose hope if you currently struggle with mental illness. [42:29]     QUOTES: “It´s an epidemic. Everything is going up. Depression is up...Recently showing male depression is up 60-70% over the last 12 months.” [1:05] “They found that the risk of depression during quarantine, if your nutrition is bad, went up over 1000%.“ [1:55] “There are foods that people need to cut out of their diet. Diets need to change drastically…” [7:15] “All good diets are lacking ultra-processed foods. The reason I think they´re evil because of the way they increase inflammation.” [12:12]   “We did a research study where we said: When we look at all the literature, what are the top nutrients that are most important for brain health and helping depression? Twelve nutrients stand out. So we asked ourselves: What foods have the most of these 12 nutrients? Aside from plants, 3 of the top 5 foods were seafood.” [26:00]   “I have treated people with every type of mental illness, and it´s actually what gives me hope. It´s what gives me strength and resilience. I have seen people who have it so hard with what happens in their minds, and to see them just do amazing things: Start companies, have families, whatever it is, makes me very hopeful.“ [42:57]   FOLLOW DR.

206: Tools for Capturing Your Project's Reality
Matthew Byrd, President of Nexus 3D Consulting and host of the Reality Capture Network podcast, and Scott Hicken, AOC Executive Producer, join us on episode 206 of Art of Construction.   The truth is, 3D scanning is the future, and it’s enticing. State-of-the-art products give us the ability to capture and utilize accurate data for every stage of a construction project, from checking off pre-insulation details in a newly built home, to remodeling giant architectural masterpieces like the Seattle Space Needle. But as we know, each project is different. There’s no “One Size Fits All” in the AEC industry, and certainly not in system integration. With different laser scanners and photogrammetry software on the market, how do you choose what will best serve your project and company’s needs?  Here at Art of Construction, we strive to provide the best resources possible to innovate your business and move our industry forward, and Nexus 3D Consulting holds the same aspirations. As a company of multifaceted services, including 3D scanning, BIM services, surveying and point cloud data, they know all too well that without the right education and communication, these tools can make us work harder, NOT smarter. There is a time, place and product for each project, and knowing the difference between them is key!  Join Matthew, Devon and Scott as they discuss the similarities, differences and history of 3D capture products (like Matterport and Leica BLK360), choosing tools that'll best assist you with your project, where companies can go wrong in implementing new technologies, and connecting the RCN and AOC podcast tribes!
