62: What To Eat For Your Brain with Dr. Mark Hyman (May 23rd, 2018)

What the heck should I eat for my brain?

If you’ve listened to the past podcast episodes, you know the most popular one was “The 10 Keys to Unlocking Your Kwik Brain.” While 1/3 of our brain is pre-determined by genetics and biology, the 2/3 of it is entirely in your control. And the first thing on that list is the food that you eat. But with so many choices (or lack thereof) these days, what should we eat to have an optimal brain?

To dive deeper into this subject, we have a very special gu...

58: Burnout To Balance (Apr 25th, 2018)

How do you go from burnout to balance?

Most of us have days where we feel depleted, helpless, overloaded, where you don’t want to get out of bed, and much less pursue your dreams.
