#96 How This Sporting Event Could Change Your Life with Michael Lemmel
Play episode · 1 hr 35 min

Can a sporting event really change the world? It might sound crazy, but with the right ingredients, I think it can.

My guest on this week’s podcast is Michael Lemmel, co-founder of Swimrun, a sporting experience that’s taken the world by storm. What began as a drunken bet between friends, to swim and run between islands off Sweden, evolved into an organised endurance event and now an eco-conscious, global phenomenon, attracting people of all ages and abilities.

You run in your wetsuit, swim in your shoes and complete a series of short swims and trail runs, all with a partner. I did my first Swimrun in Devon last summer, and myself and my nine-year-old son are now total converts. Michael and I chatted just before our third event, in Malta, and I was keen to find out why he thinks it’s such a transformative experience.

But this week’s episode is definitely not just for outdoor sports enthusiasts – it’s about the power of nature, the joy of coming together with others. It’s about stepping outside of your comfort zone, becoming a better person – and, yes, making the world a better place.

#74 Cannabis as Medicine (Part 1 of 2) - Cannabis on the Brain and Gut with Dr Dani Gordon
Seen any Cannabis products lately? We have, over the last few years, become completely inundated with cannabis products across the shelves of wellness and health stores. Online blogs claim miracle cures from everything you could think of. Sleep, anxiety, cancer, AI conditions, eczema, acne, libido. As a doctor I’m asked about this from patients a lot, but honestly I’ve had no formal training in the products and up until now I haven’t really looked at much research. So is this an incredible and legitimate supplement with a myriad of uses? Or is this modern day snake oil Well today, I’m speaking with Dr Dani Gordon. Dr Dani is a double board certified medical doctor, integrative medicine physician, Family medicine doctor and world leading expert in CBD, cannabis medicine. She also co-founded the non-profit, UK Medical Cannabis Clinicians's Society (MCCS), which trained the UK's first cannabis medicine specialists and helped set up the UK's first cannabis medicine centres. She has lectured at Imperial College, King’s College, and UCL on medical cannabis. She also developed the first medical cannabis training program for physicians in the UK and is a consultant for clinical research in cannabinoid medicine working with top researchers around the world.  Dr Dani Gordon is the perfect person to be speaking to on this subject and we have a fascinating conversation talking about: * Her first interaction with cannabis medicine and plant medicine * The historical use of cannabis as a plant medicine * The types of chemicals found in the cannabis plant * The endocannabinoid system and how cannabis may exert its affects * The risks of using Cannabis * The uses of cannabis in dementia, parkinsons, gut disorders  * Tips on how to use cannabis as a wellness product Disclaimer: This information is for educational purposes only and not to be taken as medical advice.

#161: 9 Things We Do That Hold Us Back from Our Goals & Dreams with Dhru Purohit
In a culture that’s obsessed with adding things in (we want more, more, more), we can forget how powerful removing things can be. We need to take away that which is preventing us from reaching our goals in order to truly move forward.   On this week’s episode of The Broken Brain Podcast, Dhru talks about nine things he commonly sees people doing that hold them back from their goals and dreams (whether they realize it or not). This episode was originally released at the beginning of the year. I’m willing to bet these nine habits will hit home with many of you. Do you obsess over what other people think of you? Do you waste time on social media as a way of avoiding other things? Or maybe you’re the kind of person who is constantly hard on yourself and lives according to other people’s expectations instead of your own desires. There are so many tendencies we fall into, for many different reasons, but that doesn’t mean we’re stuck with them.  We can change, we can grow, we can shift our mindset and actions to finally reach those meaningful goals. In this episode, we dive into: -Why we obsess over what others think of us (1:49)  -Why we waste time on social media (11:27)  -Why we don’t ask for help or support from friends (16:17) -Why we blame everyone instead of looking within (21:17) -Why we avoid setting an intention for the day (25:08) -Why we spend time with the wrong people (29:10) -Why we don’t read books that help us level up (32:28) -Why we live the life that others expect of us, instead of a life true to you (37:11) -Why we are hard on ourselves all day, everyday (44:56) Also mentioned in this episode: -The instagram post that inspired this podcast - https://www.instagram.com/p/Bp2MMvbAudw/ -Moss Reports on Cancer by Dr. Ralph Moss - https://www.mossreports.com/ -Dr. Elizabeth Boham - http://www.drboham.com/ -Broken Brain Podcast episodes on friendship -https://drhyman.com/blog/2019/10/31/bb-ep78/ -https://drhyman.com/blog/2019/12/17/why-we-need-deep-and-meaningful-relationships/ -https://drhyman.com/blog/2020/06/10/bb-ep122/ -https://drhyman.com/blog/2020/09/23/bb-ep153/ -Broken Brain Podcast Episode 55 - How to Redesign the Subconscious Mind from Limitation to Freedom with Peter Crone - https://drhyman.com/blog/2019/05/16/bb-ep55/ -Broken Brain Podcast Episode 75 - How a Morning Routine, Human Touch, and Nourishing Relationships Can Radically Lower Your Stress with Dr. Rangan Chatterjee - https://drhyman.com/blog/2019/10/10/bb-ep75/ -The One Thing by Gary Keller - https://www.the1thing.com/ -The Top Five Regrets of the Dying by Bronnie Ware - https://bronnieware.com/regrets-of-the-dying/ -The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle - https://www.amazon.com/Power-Now-Guide-Spiritual-Enlightenment/dp/1577314808 -The Landmark Forum - https://www.landmarkworldwide.com/ For more on Dhru Purohit, be sure to follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, on Facebook @dhruxpurohit, on Twitter @dhrupurohit, and on YouTube @dhrupurohit.

The Connected Yoga Teacher Podcast 190: How to Create Guided Meditations with Kelly Smith Description: In most typical or mainstream yoga class settings, an aspect of yoga that doesn’t get too much attention is meditation. Many of us have encountered students complaining that they don't have time to meditate, or people who really struggle with laying still and quieting their minds - perhaps that’s even something you have struggled with. There’s where guided meditations can be helpful, and Kelly Smith has some tips and insights for us on the topic. Kelly Smith is a meditation teacher, yoga teacher trainer, and the founder of Yoga For You, a location independent yoga and meditation school. She also hosts the Mindful in Minutes podcast, where she shares her personal guided meditations. By focusing on the less physical yoga practices like meditation, yoga nidra, restorative yoga and mindful flows, Kelly helps people find their true selves and begin living the joyful life they deserve through mentorship, private sessions, teacher trainings and online courses. Kelly shares some of the benefits of meditation, and highlights some of the differences between guided imagery, guided meditations and Savasana. She has tips on how to write guided meditations, and the nitty gritty details of how to record a meditation and share it online. Kelly also tackles some of the common misconceptions around meditation, and why it’s so important to meet your students where they are in their meditation journey. If you’ve been wondering how to get students interested in meditation, how to create your own guided meditation practice, or how to get those meditations online, this interview with Kelly is a great starting point.

Quotes from this episode: "No one ever educated me on the benefits or why we do Savasana." - Kelly "There's this common misconception that meditation is kind of like doing nothing. If that's what people think, then we haven't done our job in educating our students." - Kelly "The science shows us that anywhere from 8 to 12 minutes a day is enough to get the neurological and physiological benefits of meditation." - Kelly "We start by writing the guided meditation by thinking about how the story that we're telling is going to end." - Kelly
