#150 BITESIZE | How Movement Can Transform Your Life | Dr Kelly McGonigal
Play • 10 min

If we can incorporate regular movement into our daily lives we will feel the physical and mental benefits, yet many of us view exercise as a punishment or an obligation.

Feel Better Live More Bitesize is my new weekly podcast for your mind, body and heart. Each week I’ll be featuring inspirational stories and practical tips from some of my former guests.

Today’s clip is from episode 109 of the podcast with Kelly McGonigal. Kelly is a US research psychologist, a lecturer at Stanford University and an author.

Kelly reveals how it’s possible to change our mindset to view physical activity as a way to engage with life. If we focus on calories and metrics, we may be missing the joy we can experience from movement.

She explains how going beyond what you think you’re capable of, whether that’s an endurance event or lifting heavy weights, can change the brain in positive ways.

Any movement is good for you though and can provide a reset for your mood and your brain chemistry. Repeatedly contracting any muscle, whether working out with weights or doing gardening, releases antidepressant substances called myokines that scientists have dubbed ‘hope molecules’.

Kelly gives us tips on how to incorporate more movement into our lives and find ways to move our body that we truly enjoy.

Roy Kinsey | The Rapbrarian
My guest today, Chicago-born and raised, Roy Kinsey, is a bit of an anomaly. A black, queer-identified, rapper, and librarian or as he puts it, Rapbrarian. Roy’s escape from trauma and creative outlet as a kid was writing and music and also a love of books and learning. He began sharing his words and beats, rapping at a young age, but really began to elevate his pursuit of music-making in college, performing and refining his craft. Graduating, he began making a name for himself, performing, recording and releasing albums, while simultaneously earning degrees that would find him working as a librarian by day and an artist by night. A few albums in, Roy began to feel like an essential part of him was being kept from his music and also his community, so he made the decision to come out as queer on an album at a time very few others in the space of rap and hip-hop were out. It was a moment that would transform him and his music. Roy has since released a series of powerful albums, including his latest powerful reflection, KINSEY: A Memoir (http://www.roykinsey.com/shop). He’s been featured on the cover of major local publications like Chicago Reader and the Chicago Tribune, in and on major national, and international publications like Billboard, LA Times, NPR, WBEZ’s Vocalo. And Roy has even found a way to bring his love of music and books together, running workshops as a librarian in the Teen Services/Youmedia department for Chicago Public Libraries.

The War of Art: Steven Pressfield
We all experience it. That invisible, self-sabotaging force that lives between you and your most expressed self. Today’s guest calls it ‘Resistance’. He’s cracked how to overcome it—and the process required to birth your best work. Meet author Steven Pressfield—a man who has profoundly impacted my life and how I pursue creative expression. A former Marine, Duke graduate, and journeyman of countless jobs, Steven had been writing in obscurity for three decades before his first published novel became a smash success. Molded on archetypes lifted from the Bhagavad Gita, The Legend of Bagger Vance made it’s way all the way to the big screen, starring Matt Damon and Will Smith. Now revered for his creative prolificacy, Steven has 20 books to his name, including the military novels Tides of War and Gates of Fire, currently on the curriculum at the Naval War College and West Point. More relevant to today’s discourse, Steven has authored some of the most impactful books ever written on the fundamentals of pursuing a creative life. Collectively, The War of Art, Do The Work, and Turning Pro are books I’ve read and make a point to re-read annually. Practical treatises on the human relationship with authentic expression, they provide a disciplined approach to birth the work we were born to create. Steven’s latest offering, A Man At Arms, is a historical novel about the Roman Empire, a reluctant hero, and the rise of Christianity in First Century Jerusalem. Cinematic in it’s sweep, think Gladiator meets The Road Warrior. A personal hero, meeting Steven has always been a dream. Today he shares his story. And it’s everything I hoped it would be. Steven will tell you that creativity isn’t about talent. It’s about discipline. But it’s also about reverence for the mystical—courting The Muse to connect with that inimitable force that breathes beyond our conscious awareness. However, The Muse only shows up when you respect the grind as sacred. An excavation of this process, this conversation is an absolute masterclass on all things creativity, served up with a healthy dose of perseverance, persistence, patience, and the heavy lifting required to eliminate distraction and make manifest the dormant, authentic voice within. It’s also about dispelling the myth that great art is the purview of the chosen few. Or that it comes easy to those so touched. We all have something worthy to say. We can all benefit from learning how to better express our truth. “Our job in this life is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine we ought to be, but to find out who we already are and become it.” The spirit of this exchange is to empower this ideal. The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. Final note: Some unfortunate construction noise next door periodically invades the audio dojo. Apologies for the distraction. I hold Steven and his work in the highest regard. My hope is that this conversation will leave you feeling the same.

088 Endometriosis and the Menopause - Chris Mann & Dr Louise Newson
In this podcast, Dr Louise Newson is joined by Chris Mann, a consultant gynaecologist and one of the world's leading experts in endometriosis. Chris has received extensive training in many countries in the surgical treatment of endometriosis from some of the world's leading laparoscopic surgeons. He talks to Dr Newson about this condition, which affects around 10% of women and explains how, for many women, it takes seven years for a diagnosis. Far too many women do not seek medical help and those that do are often dismissed and given inappropriate advice or treatment. Chris and Dr Newson talk about the different treatment options available for endometriosis and how women with endometriosis can be given different types of HRT during the perimenopause and menopause. He recommends that any woman who is not receiving adequate help should persevere and see another doctor. We are releasing this podcast the first week in March to coincide with Endometriosis Awareness Month. Taking place across the world, Endometriosis Month exists to help increase awareness and highlight the symptoms of this debilitating condition that affects an estimated 176 million women worldwide. Chris Mann's Three Take Home Tips: * If you suspect that you may have endometriosis and the symptoms are negatively impacting your life then please seek help. Too many women suffer in silence. * If you are not getting anywhere with your GP then you can ask for a second opinion. If you still are not getting the right help then book a private consultation with a specialist, if you can afford it. A specialist can then write to your GP and advise them on your treatment going forward. * Don't give up! For too long, too many women have been fobbed off. It isn't something to just 'put up with' and there are now more of us out there that want to help. Visit Chris Mann's website: https://www.theendometriosisclinic.com/christopher-mann/

Treating Addiction, Depression, and Anxiety with Psychedelics (Minisode #25)
We’re all just trying to figure out what this world and this life are all about, and do our best at living well. At least I know I am! But wouldn’t it be nice to have a little help when it comes to recovering from traumas, treating anxiety and depression, understanding spirituality on a new level, successfully overcoming addiction, and even reducing our fear of death? Well, research and clinical trials in the field of psychedelics is showing that we can.  Psychedelics were the subject of serious medical research in the 1940s to the 1960s, when many scientists believed some of the mind-bending compounds held tremendous therapeutic promise for treating a number of conditions including severe mental health problems and alcohol addiction. By the mid-60s, research into psychedelics was shut down for decades. After the blackout ended, the doctor we have on the podcast today was among the first to initiate a new series of studies on psilocybin—the psychoactive compound in “magic” mushrooms. On today’s mini-episode, Dhru speaks with Dr. Roland Griffiths, a Professor in the Departments of Psychiatry and Neurosciences at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Griffiths’ principle research focus in both clinical and preclinical laboratories has been on the behavioral and subjective effects of mood-altering drugs.  His research has been largely supported by grants from the National Institute of Health, and he is the author of over 360 journal articles and book chapters. In 1999 he initiated a research program at Johns Hopkins investigating the effects of the classic hallucinogen psilocybin that includes studies of psilocybin-occasioned mystical-type experiences in healthy volunteers, psilocybin-facilitated treatment of psychological distress in cancer patients, psilocybin-facilitated treatment of cigarette smoking cessation, and psilocybin effects in long-term meditators. In this episode, we discuss the therapeutic benefits of psilocybin for the treatment of addiction, and how a single dose of psilocybin substantially diminished depression and anxiety in cancer patients.  Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dr. Roland Griffiths here: https://broken-brain.lnk.to/DrRolandGriffiths/ For more on Dhru Purohit, be sure to follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, on Facebook @dhruxpurohit, on Twitter @dhrupurohit, and on YouTube @dhrupurohit.

I’m a huge fan of morning routines because I think they can transform your ability to focus, sleep well, and get the most out of your day, especially in this busy, modern world.  What I’ve found is that the best way to begin your day is to feed your body the right information or the right nutrients. That’s why Dr. Hyman and I created the Pegan Shake. It’s a nutritionally packed morning blend designed to support healthy blood sugar, energy, and brainpower.   It contains some of my most favorite brain-boosting foods like MCT and avocado.

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! We're able to keep growing and creating content for YOU because of their support. We believe in their mission and would appreciate you supporting them in return!!

Approaching climate change like a game of chess with Dr Jonathan Foley
In *Episode #119* I sit down with *Dr Jonathan Foley*, one of the worlds most highly regarded Climate and Environmental Scientist's. Jonathan has published over 130 peer reviewed papers in the the field of sustainability in highly prestigious journals such as _Science_ and _Nature_. He is also an author, a highly sought after guest speaker and is the Executive Director at Project Drawdown, a not-for-profit organisation which is widely considered as the worlds leading resource for information on climate solutions. However, as brilliant as his resume is, his communication is arguably what makes his work so incredibly powerful. * In this episode we cover:* * How the climate change conversation has moved from debate around its existence to debate around solutions * What Project Drawdown is * Individual versus government action * Looking at climate change as a game of chess * Why climate change doesn't have to be scary * The changes we can make as individuals with a specific focus on three key areas: water, energy and food. * and much more If you are wanting to learn real facts about climate change and the solutions we have, from someone who not only values science but contributes to it, then I highly suggest you make time to listen to this...probably more than once! And of course, share it to any friends or family members who you think may benefit from hearing from Dr Foley. *Resources:* * Project Drawdown * Jonathan's Bio * Jonathan on twitter * Jonathon's blog 'Beef rules' * Jonathan's blog on seeing Climate change as a game of Chess * Confused about holistic grazing and whether grass-fed beef is a real climate solution? Read this paper out of Oxford University Dr Tara Garnett which discusses some of the problems with claims from certain people in this industry.
