#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.

#86 Nutrition Science Series (Part 1 of 3) Why Everything About Nutrition Could Be Wrong with Professor Tim Spector
Is everything we have been told about nutrition wrong? And have we questioned prevailing dietary dogma enough? Are we asking the right questions in nutrition science and if not, how do we rectify it? Professor Tim Spector, Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at Kings College London and honorary consultant Physician at Guys and St Thomas’ Hospitals is my guest this week and we dive into these questions and more. He is the lead researcher behind the world’s biggest citizen science health project – the Covid Symptom study app. This free tool has been used by more than 4 million people in the UK, US, and Sweden. The app identified new symptoms of the disease and risk factors as well as monitoring its progress to warn health authorities.  He has published four popular books- including the best-selling Diet Myth and more recently, Spoon-Fed, a Sunday Times bestseller that I think is absolutely fantastic. On the show today we talk about: * Why the calorie in calorie out dogma is entirely flawed * Why salt may not be the prime suspect * The approach to pesticides we should take * Artificially sweetened beverages * Practical suggestions for how to live healthier * What the future of personalised nutrition could hold Check out The Doctor's Kitchen website for full show notes and social media links for this episode   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Is grass-fed beef good for our planet?
In* 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.

Too Much Fat, Too Little Nutrition | Dr. Andrew Freeman
It is possible to eat 4,000 or 5,000 or even 10,000 calories a day and still be malnourished! While the diet of an average American is filled with fat and calories it is sadly lacking the essential vitamins and nutrients that your body needs to function healthfully. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, there are four times as many people who are obese or overweight and malnourished compared to those who are underweight and battling the same malnourishment. On this episode of The Exam Room™, “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Andrew Freeman to discuss why a large waist size is too easily mistaken for overnutrition rather than the nutrient desert it is. "If left untreated, malnutrition leads to serious health conditions including diabetes, hypertension and heart disease," Dr. Freeman says. Dr. Freeman’s research is then put to the test when Chuck calculates the nutrient values of his previous high fat 10,000-calorie diet. The results are shocking! — — — Vote For The Exam Room!

182. Do More With Less: How to Stretch in Work and Life with Scott Sonenshein
There's a common belief that to be more successful we need more resources — that we should earn more money, acquire more resources, accomplish more, spend more time, and expand our network of people. But when we focus on chasing down additional resources rather than using those already at our disposal, we are rarely satisfied with our work, and may in fact be less successful in the long run. Instead, could it be possible to do more with less? In this week’s episode of Psychologists Off the Clock, Debbie and Dr. Scott Sonenshein, author of Stretch and coauthor with Marie Kondo of Joy at Work, discuss the ideas of "chasing" and "stretching." Scott shares some practical wisdom for how to stretch in work and life. The conversation adds a whole new meaning to TLC’s lyric “don’t go chasing waterfalls!” Listen and Learn: How Debbie and Jill’s are trying to stretch in their lives How Scott Sonenshein, an expert in organizational psychology, applies principles from organizational psychology to other domains of life About a potential silver lining of the pandemic and our "new normal" (and Scott’s practical advice for creating your own silver lining anytime!) Debbie’s delicious example of constraint leading to resourcefulness in her own life Scott’s breakdown of the two mindsets that can help or hinder our efforts to be flexible Scott’s personal experience with the chase mindset in Silicon Valley and the lessons he learned in the dot com era The benefits of the stretch mindset — and practical advice on how to get into that mindset today The ultimate question for starting your growth journey Why it’s okay to not be an expert and how dabbling in many areas can be useful  Practical examples of how to move from a chasing mindset to a stretching mindset The most important thing Scott learned from collaborating with Marie Kondo What ‘activity clutter’ is, how it might be impacting you, and three questions you can use to prioritize  Resources Scott Sonenshein’s book, Stretch: Unlock the Power of Less and Achieve More than You Ever Imagined.  Scott’s and Marie Kondo’s book, Joy at Work: Organizing Your Professional Life  Sign up for POTC’s First Annual Wise Minds Summit: How to Adapt and Thrive in Today’s Challenging Times Dr. Scott Sonenshein   Scott Sonenshein, Ph.D. is the Henry Gardiner Symonds Professor of Management at Rice University and New York Times best-selling author whose books have been translated into over 20 languages.

Feels Good Man! Arthur Jones & Giorgio Angelini On The Controversial Meme That Changed The World
In a spark of creativity, cartoonist Matt Furie created an innocent, loving frog he named Pepe. What came next is so insane, it literally bent reality. Filmmakers Arthur Jones & Giorgio Angelini wanted to understand how this sweet and relatively obscure indie comic book character morphed into an infamous symbol of hate—and a meme that changed the world. The result is Feels Good Man—a filmmaking triumph and one of the best documentaries I’ve seen in years. Premiering at last year’s Sundance, where it picked up the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Emerging Filmmaker, it’s the surreal story of Pepe The Frog. How it migrated across the internet, evolving into an unwitting avatar of chaos and a lever for radicalization. It’s about its creator Matt Furie’s efforts to reclaim his creation. And Pepe’s slow transmogrification back into a hieroglyph of positivity. But beneath the surface, Feels Good Man is about artistic agency. It’s about the journey from passivity to participation. A sociological excavation of how culture spreads from mind to mind, it’s also an archeological dig into the indelible power of an idea. How a meme adopted by a regressive internet subculture spilled into the real world, shifted the political landscape, and ultimately tipped a presidential election. The film is an absolute must-see. I wanted to know more. So today Arthur and Giorgio take us behind the looking glass on Pepe’s Frankenstein-meets-Alice-In-Wonderland journey. This is a conversation about the complicated relationship between internet culture and the real world. It’s about the strange relationship between comic book artists, arch druids, data scientists, intellectual property lawyers, and alt-right mouthpieces. It’s about memetics—how memes drive cultural evolution in parallel with how genes influence human evolution. And, in this case, how one meme was perniciously coopted to democratize electoral engagement, enervating passive supporters into active participants. But more than anything, this is about the war between cynicism and hope. And why, to coin Matt Furie, you gotta go hardcore happy. The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. I don’t understand why everyone isn’t talking about this movie and the ideas it presents. This conversation is my attempt to change that.

How to Prevent Cancer (Minisode #21)
For hundreds of years, cancer has been portrayed as a foreign invader we’ve been powerless to stop, but our understanding of cancer is slowly undergoing a revolution, allowing for the development of more effective treatments. For the first time ever, the death rate from cancer is showing a steady decline, but the “War on Cancer” has hardly been won. Dhru’s guests on today’s mini-episode, Dr. Jason Fung and Dr. Elizabeth Boham, talk to us about the seed and soil analogy of cancer, and how the seed of cancer may exist in all of us, but the power to change the soil is in our hands. They also talk about how hyperinsulinemia may enable the development of cancer, and how we can build a soil that offers cancer a hostile environment as opposed to a fertile one. Dr. Jason Fung is a physician, author, and researcher. His groundbreaking science-based books about diabetes and obesity, The Diabetes Code, The Obesity Code, and The Complete Guide to Fasting have sold over one million copies. His latest book, The Cancer Code: A Revolutionary New Understanding of a Medical Mystery, was just released at the end of 2020.  Dr. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The Ultrawellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing, she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness. She is part of the faculty of the Institute for Functional Medicine and has been featured on the Dr. Oz show and in a variety of publications and media including Huffington Post, The Chalkboard Magazine, and Experience Life. Her DVD Breast Wellness: Tools to Prevent and Heal from Breast Cancer explores the Functional Medicine approach to keeping your breasts and whole body well.  Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dr. Jason Fung here: https://broken-brain.lnk.to/DrJasonFung/ Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dr. Elizabeth Boham here: https://broken-brain.lnk.to/DrElizabethBoham2/ 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 Dhru 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.
