#32 The Science of Happiness with Meik Wiking
Play • 1 hr 3 min

“Globally we are richer than ever before, but we fail to convert that wealth into wellbeing”

 

Meik Wiking, author of best-selling book Hygge, understands happiness better than anyone. In his role as Founder and CEO of the world's only Happiness Research Institute, he has travelled the globe interviewing the world's happiest people to discover the key components of happiness. In this episode, we explore the fascinating findings of his research and uncover what we can learn from the world’s happiest countries.  We talk about the impact of stress on our happiness and how although we are richer than ever before, we have failed to convert that wealth into wellbeing. It seems that despite all our cultural differences, we as a human race have a very similar view of happiness across the world. Meik and I discuss how one of the most important components of a happy life is meaning and purpose and how this has been gradually eroded from our lives.  This is an eye-opening and fascinating conversation – I hope you enjoy it.


My upcoming book, ‘The Stress Solution’ covers meaning and purpose in great detail.  You can pre-order it on Amazon.

#85 The Brain Series (Part 3 of 3). Transforming your Brain with Dr Tara Swart
What if we could harness the power of our thoughts to change the function of our brain and manifest the perfect life we’ve always wanted for ourselves. You might think I’m talking about new-age self help sensationalism, quantum physics and hype. But I’m actually talking about concepts rooted in ancient philosophy, that are being proven by breakthroughs in neuroscience and neuroimaging. I’m delighted to be chatting with Dr Tara Swart - a neuroscientist, medical doctor, executive advisor, Senior Lecturer at MIT Sloan, and author of best-seller ‘The Source’. A book that distills the principles and actions of how we can harness the power of our conscious mind to alter the world around us. Tara is passionate about disseminating simple, pragmatic neuroscience-based messages that change the way people live and work. She personally advises a small number of individuals via personal recommendation only, and speaks at major conferences globally. Today we talk about: * The field of nutrition, the microbiota and how that has an impact on our thoughts * Ancient wisdom and how this has been gradually explained through the lens of neuroscience * The science explained the “law of attraction” * How to manifest your thoughts into reality * Brain agility and how we train it * Neuroplasticity * Psychobiotics * Brain healthy foods, Brain healthy exercises and Brain healthy thoughts * Why action boarding works * Tara’s personal story of leaving her job, divorce and moving country all at the same time and how she harnessed the power of her mind to maintain resilience “There’s no fate but what we make for ourselves” – The Terminator Do be sure to check out The Doctor's Kitchen Website for full show notes and social media links for this and all our other episodes.   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Is grass-fed beef good for our planet?
n* Episode 116* I sit down with *Environmental Researcher Nicholas Carter* to talk further about grass-fed beef and planetary health. *Specifically we cover:* 1 - Results from a new peer-reviewed study on White Oaks Pasture, a farm that for years has claimed their beef is carbon negative. 2 - The importance of rewilding for cooling our planet 3 - How changing the foods we eat can help free up land to be rewilded and protect existing forests 4 - The GHG footprint of our food - how important is transport in this conversation? Beef versus Avocado as an example. 5 - The UK's Regenuary movement and some of their claims 6 - and much more *Resources:* * John Hokpkins University study published in 2020 which combined data from 140 countries and identified the single greatest way for someone to lower the GHG footprint of their diet was by adopting a vegan diet. Next best was a vegan diet with insects and molluscs and then a two-thirds vegan diet (2 vegan meals and snacks a day with one meal containing animal products). * You want to reduce the carbon footprint of your food? Focus on what you eat, not whether your food is local. Article by Hannah Ritchie * Author of White Oaks Pastures study acknowledging that their beef is NOT carbon negative and such claims are false.*My Book:* My book is coming out early 2021 published with Penguin - I cannot wait to share with you. In the lead up the launch I am going to share information about the title, cover, ways to win a copy, live event dates, free e-books etc. Register your email here so I can keep you up to date. *Want to support the show?* The single best way you can support the show is by leaving a review on Apple podcast app - it only takes a few minutes and would be much appreciated.

Live Life Colorfully | Jason Naylor
I first learned about today’s guest, Jason Naylor, through his art, which at that point, started appearing on walls and buildings all over New York City, and now is featured all over the world and on products, shows, in fashion and beyond. Jason is originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, where he grew up in a Mormon community and eventually felt called to step away and define his own path. After getting his BFA in graphic design from Brigham Young, he moved to New York City where he began his career in MAC Cosmetics’ Creative Department as a designer, but the whole time, he was creating his own work and starting to paint these hyper-vivid murals on walls around the city, often featuring inspirational words and quotes on the side. His style just kind of exploded with energy and kindness and playfulness.  As his work caught on, leading to more and bigger commissions and collaborations with companies like Coach, Sephora, and Pepsi, he left his full-time gig and went all-in on his own art, now running his own brand, Jason Naylor Studio, where he continues to share his positivity through murals, graphic pieces, and collaborations with New York City communities, as well as popular brands. Much of his work and his philosophy of life and creativity appears in his new book, Live Life Colorfully (https://tinyurl.com/yy4mopvp).

#189: How to Live on Purpose with Antonio Neves
Do you ever find yourself just going along on autopilot, not stopping to think what you’re doing or why you’re doing it? Do you ever forget why you agreed to a meeting or project, or wonder how you got to where you are in life right now?  On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host Dhru talks to Antonio Neves, an internationally recognized leadership speaker, author, and award-winning journalist. He is the author of three books, and his latest book, Stop Living On Autopilot: Take Responsibility for Your Life and Rediscover a Bolder, Happier You, was just released. On his podcast The Best Thing, Antonio talks with leaders about the best thing to happen to them that would never appear on a resume. Antonio’s speaking audiences over the years have included: Google, Amazon, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, Booking.com, Credit Union National Association (CUNA), Stanford University, and more. For over 10 years, Antonio worked as a correspondent in New York City with top television networks including NBC, PBS, and BET Networks. Antonio is a graduate of Western Michigan University and holds a master’s degree from Columbia University.    In this episode, Dhru and Antonio talk about how to own your past and accept where you are today so you can move forward. They discuss the importance of getting the right advice from friends, and why statements like “Don’t worry, it’s never too late,” or “Maybe it wasn’t meant to be,” can be harmful. They also talk about how to be an active player in your own life and start living on your own terms and why what you do when no one is watching will determine your success or failure in life.    In this episode, we dive into:   -What living on autopilot looks like (2:26)  -Antonio’s personal transformation journey (4:39) -Why we must believe the best is ahead, and that the “best thing” hasn’t happened yet (15:15)  -Taking inventory of the last 30 days of your life (26:26) -How to get clear on what you want (38:59) -Why your dreams have an expiration (49:20) -The value of having honest friendships in your life (57:02) -The importance of not just committing, but recommitting everyday to what is most important to you (1:05:45) -Why people give up on their dreams (1:11:56) -The stories we have yet to accept in our lives (1:17:04)  For more on Antonio Neves you can follow him on Instagram @TheAntonioNeves, on Facebook @TheAntonioNeves, on Twitter @TheAntonioNeves, on YouTube @TheAntonioNeves, and through his website https://theantonioneves.com/.
