#136 Arianna Huffington: Microsteps and Rituals to Help You Thrive
Play • 1 hr 33 min

In times of uncertainty, anxiety and stress, taking care of your wellbeing is more important than ever and no one knows this better than my guest on today’s episode. Arianna Huffington is author and businesswoman who founded the original ‘internet newspaper’, The Huffington Post. She’s also one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World and on Forbes’ Most Powerful Women list.

After collapsing at her desk from sleep deprivation and exhaustion in 2007, Arianna became more passionate about the connection between wellbeing and performance. She therefore launched a company called Thrive Global with a mission of ending the stress and burnout epidemic by offering individuals, companies and communities sustainable, science-based solutions to wellbeing.

Arianna and I share a desire to show millions of people globally that habit change and healthy living doesn’t have to be hard. We are both passionate that tiny ‘microsteps’ that we can all take each day, can have a dramatic impact on our health and the quality of our lives.

Arianna talks me through her Thrive app, which is like a ‘health coach in your pocket’ and how it uses the concept of ‘microsteps’ to show that behaviour change doesn’t have to be a huge commitment. Small things you can do that, if regular and consistent, will add up to significant and lasting benefits.

We discuss the idea of ‘compassionate directness’ as a way of resolving tensions both at home and at work. Arianna shares her wisdom on sleep, motherhood, on creating boundaries when working from home, and on having rituals to mark the end of the day. We also speak about the importance of solitude and discuss how modern life is sending many of us back to ancient wisdom and texts such as the Bhagavad Gita.

This conversation is full of brilliant tips and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

#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.

Mastering The Microbiome
Our bodies are comprised of about ten trillion cells. But only half those cells are human. The remainder comprise our microbiome—a vast and complex ecosystem of bacteria, viruses, and fungi that live in or on our bodies. Only now is science beginning to understand the profound impact of these microbes on human health. We choose to believe that we are fully sentient and self-governing, wholly responsible for our health, moods and decisions. But the truth is far different. In fact, to a large extent, our emotional state, propensity for disease, the nature of our cravings, and even some of our decision making can be traced back to the nature of our gut ecology. Most of these microorganisms are symbiotic. Maintaining a healthy culture of the right microorganisms is fundamental to good health. But should the quality of your microbiome go awry, health havoc ensues. To better understand the vital role these microorganisms play in our health and lives, today’s show is a veritable microbiome masterclass courtesy of the gastroenterologists, scientific researchers, and gut experts that have graced the show over the years. After 8+ years and 500+ conversations, I’ve compiled a vast library of bankable, timeless information and advice. As a steward of this archive, I feel a responsibility to convert the best of it into a more helpful, productive, accessible, and practical resource. As an initial step toward this goal, I will be periodically offering curated wisdom focused on a specific theme or subject (as opposed to a guest). This episode is an embryonic experiment in doing just that—the first in what will be an evolving series of deep dives, commencing with this microbiome intensive courtesy of the following collection of past podcast gut health expert guests (all hyperlinked to their respective full episodes): * Robynne Chutkan, M.D. * Ara Katz and Raja Dhir * Zach Bush, M.D. * Rhonda Patrick, Ph.D. * Will Bulsiewicz, M.D. The visually inclined can watch it unfold on YouTube.

#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/.

The Psychodynamics of Social Networking – Dr Aaron Balick, PhD
Get early access to our latest psychology lectures: http://bit.ly/new-talks Online social networks like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter can be seen as a virtual extension of our psychological and emotional selves. They also happen to be an essential technology that mediates our relationships in contemporary society. The architecture of different online social networking sites enable certain aspects of self-expression while inhibiting others. The consequence is that self-expression and online relationships are necessarily altered by what different online social networking sites can or cannot do. Drawing on insights from his book The Psychodynamics of Social Networking: connected-up instantaneous culture and the self, Dr. Balick will be exploring how online social networking mediates self-expression and interpersonal relationships today. This seminar is an application of contemporary relational psychoanalysis and other related disciplines to modern technology. In this model, online social networking is seen as a product and deployment, however, faulty, of the basic human unconscious motivation to relate to others. The way in which this motivation is mediated through these platforms has important consequences for individuals, relationships to others, and society as a whole. --- Aaron Balick, PhD is a psychotherapist, cultural theorist and author applying ideas from depth psychology to culture and technology. He is an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Department for Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies at the University of Essex (UK). He is a founding member and former executive chair of The Relational School UK. His books include ‘The Psychodynamics of Social Networking: Connected-up Instantaneous Culture and the Self’ and the illustrated children’s self-help book: ‘Keep Your Cool: How to Deal with Life’s Worries and Stress’. ‘The Little Book of Calm’ was released in January of 2018.

#57 Fatal Conveniences™: Tea Bags: Are They Safe?
Tea is an amazing way to utilize the health benefits of plants. I drink tea daily, and you should, too. But do we really want to soak a bag made of who-knows-what in hot water and drink it? Folks, it’s time to talk about store-bought tea bags. Welcome to Fatal Conveniences™ This is a bite-sized segment that parallels The Darin Olien Show. In these segments, we get into society's Fatal Conveniences™. I define these as the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. These things save us time and trick us into thinking they're actually good for us. But it's those same things that are breaking down our health, and the health of the environment around us. I've spent most of my adult life obsessively researching these "conveniences." On every show, I pick one topic, and we dive into it. My goal is to make you more aware of these traps so that you can push back on them. Remember, it starts with you and the choices you make. So, if you're willing to look at your world from a different perspective and make little tweaks that amount to big changes, then this segment is for you. Most store-bought tea bags are made of layered plastic. Yes, your healthy green, black and other herbal teas come in a bag full of toxic plastic. Then you’re seeping this plastic bag into hot water as its toxins leak into the liquid. You’re drinking plastic tea! This is terrible, guys. Tea is a healthy product. And we’re transforming it into something unhealthy. Why? Because it’s cheaper for companies to make a leak-free bag out of plastic than other materials. This is just silly. In this segment, I’m going to break down how and why tea bags are made with toxic plastic and what it’s doing to your body. I don’t want you to stop drinking tea, I just want you to be aware of better alternatives. I prefer using a stainless steel mesh tea ball or just making loose leaf teas. But there are some amazing tea companies out there making safe tea bags, so I’ll tell you all about those, too. Listen up, guys, it’s tea time.
