How do you turn your back on? Do you feel your brain is getting older? Senior moments coming early or feel absent-minded? It’s quite common these days for a lot of people to not have focus, unable to maintain concentration, and lack mental energy. It’s no surprise that we’re overloaded, distracted, and overstimulated that it’s easy to feel like your mind is fleeting. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Even with age, your brain doesn’t have to decline. It can get better, and you can “turn it back on.” To talk about this topic, I have a very special guest today. He’s a dear friend of mine, Dave Asprey. He is the founder of Bulletproof and author of New York Times bestseller, The Bulletproof Diet, and his new book, Super Human. He is a Silicon Valley investor and technology entrepreneur who spent two decades hack his own biology. In this episode, he will share some of his tips (you may not hear of before) to turn your brain back on. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

What should you know about women’s brains?  The historical conception that male brains are superior to female brains is finally being overturned—but while there is no difference in our intelligence, there are subtle structural differences in female brains that can heighten the risk of health conditions for women, including Alzheimer’s disease, migraines, and depression. Few people are aware of this, so raising awareness and helping people to feel more comfortable seeking assistance with these types of health concerns is incredibly important.  An international researcher in Alzheimer’s prevention, author of the incredible book Brain Food, and a nutrition expert and neuroscientist, today’s guest Lisa Mosconi has years of invaluable nutrition and neuroscience knowledge from a career spent working to prevent brain deterioration.  You can check out my previous episode with Lisa here: Episode 88: Eating For Your Brain with Dr. Lisa Mosconi  In this episode, we’ll explain the differences between female and male brains, including differences in hormones and health risks. We’ll explain some ways you can become more aware of women’s brain health, and explain what a typical brain scan might look like for a woman experiencing a decline in brain health. Finally, we’ll tell you why you should take care of yourself in the busiest decades of your life, and why you (or the women in your life) should never be ashamed of seeking out health treatment.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

The process of thinking is nothing but asking and answering questions. Our thinking changes the shape of our lives, so the questions we ask ourselves matter, whether it’s “how can I learn this?” or “how can I get healthier?” We’re asking ourselves questions all the time, but we’re often not conscious of them and how they impact our behavior. Used properly, questions are a useful tool to take the knowledge and turn it into action.  In this episode, you’ll hear from my friends at the Mindpump Media Podcast and how you can uncover the questions you might not have been aware you were asking yourself, and how to use them to effect change in your life—and.  We also talk about how our brain chooses what subjects to focus on, how our memories work, and quick tips for learning and notetaking. I’ll take you through 3 quick questions to help you turn knowledge into action, then explain how you can work out what the dominant question in your life is.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

You might associate complaining with negativity, but when used in the right way, complaints can be a powerful tool to improve our relationships, achieve results and effect meaningful change in the world around us. The key is learning how to do it right—which is why we have Guy here to teach us a simple formula to effectively bring up complaints in a way that will encourage positive resolution rather than unhelpful arguments.  If you have issues in your life that are bringing you discomfort, and you’ve previously been reluctant to bring them up with the people involved for fear of starting a conflict, today’s episode will help you negotiate that process with confidence.  Guy’s books have sold millions of copies and been translated into 26 different languages, and his TED Talks have been seen by people all over the world.  In this conversation, we talk about the difference between venting and complaining, how to choose which issues to complain about, and how to avoid a complaining victim mentality. Guy will then explain why it’s important to complain in a constructive way, and take us through a formula you can use to achieve a positive end result from a complaint.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

The traditional story about aging is that as we age, we slow down, become trapped in our habits, and forget to play. The good news is that we can avoid this, and we can all learn to use our brains to change our age. Who doesn’t want to live longer? And not only longer, but better?  I’ve talked before on the podcast about the study of nuns published by Time magazine—all of them were living youthfully despite being aged 90 and above—and the secrets to their longevity were their gratitude, faith and their dedication to lifelong learning. They were lifelong learners—just like you and me! In today’s episode, I’ll remind you to schedule time to build your mental fitness, speak about the power of imagination to literally change the way you age, and the importance of retaining playfulness in your life as you grow older. I’ll take you through the 10 steps to healthy aging, and ask you to consider your progress on each step.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

You’ve heard me talk before on the show about the myth of knowledge being power—we know that it only becomes a power when we use it.  So today’s episode is designed to help you use your power, and get what you want by doing it.  Many of us spend our days telling ourselves we’re not good enough and not smart enough—or we give our power to things outside of us, and passively go through our days rather than reminding ourselves of our power and responsibility.  In today’s episode, I’ll help you to break yourself out of passive thinking, and get you doing rather than just dreaming. I’ll give you some tips to remind yourself of your power, tell you how to write to-do lists that will change the shape of your day, and shift your thinking from wishful thinking to actively pursuing your dreams.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

How do you overcome and change limiting beliefs? All behavior is belief driven. You can’t remember someone’s name if you believe you have a horrible memory.

In today’s episode, I have my longtime dear friend, Shelly Lefkoe, with us to discover how we can change the deep underlying beliefs about ourselves. Shelly Lefkoe is co-founder and President of the Lefkoe Institute, and the founder and Parenting the Lefkoeway. She has personally worked with thousands of individuals from around the world. Using The Lefkoe Method, she has helped these people eliminate issues as serious as eating disorders, phobias and depression as well as everyday problems like procrastination, shyness, fear of public speaking and the inability to form healthy relationships.  Tune in as we go over, what beliefs are and how we can tap into them to make long-lasting changes. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

How do you become a more mindful leader? Whether you’re a student, parent or entrepreneur, how do you lead yourself and how do you lead others for a place of mindful connection and development? Representative Tim Ryan recently announced his run for president and has a long history representing working-class families in Ohio. What you might not know about Tim is that in addition to his service as a Congressman, Tim is an advocate for mindfulness, meditation, and health and is the author of two books on mindfulness and healthy food. Mindfulness and leadership are two of the most important words today. We’re living through fractured, disrupted times and calm thoughtful leaders will be essential in guiding communities back toward connectedness, imagination, and change. Unless we learn to reconnect with each other and work together, we will remain unable to solve the many problems facing us.   In this conversation, we discuss how mindfulness impacts our brains, and how adverse experiences impact the minds of younger generations coming up through our schools. We speak about how mindfulness has given the best leaders the strength to lead and maintain calm through challenging times and find the imagination to lead the country out of a challenge and towards change. Lastly, we talk about why social connectedness is so important in today’s fractured society and why the world needs you to take all the self-work you’ve been doing and start passing it on to your community. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

Today's question for the Kwik Brain community is: how do you overcome math anxiety to the point that you can improve your finances? You might know Danica from her role as Winnie Cooper in Wonder Years, but what you might not know is that in addition to her lifelong acting career, Danica is an internationally-recognized mathematician, New York Times best-selling author and advocate for math education. Dealing with money and finances is one the most practical reasons to learn math—unless we are able to deal with numbers, institutions can take advantage of us without us even knowing it. Many of us have learned to avoid numbers after learning to fear math in school, but the good news is this can be turned around, no matter your age! In this conversation, we explain why avoiding maths can derail your finances, and why learning math is a form of self-care. We’ll give you some ideas for bringing fun into your math learning, and simple steps you can take to get started. We’ll tell you how math can help you feel in control of your life and make dealing with your finances fun. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

Our bodies absorb light and use it as fuel for our bodies, but few of us have been taught about how to harness the power of light to boost our health and happiness.  Our natural environment deeply affects our bodies—our circadian rhythms are affected by sunlight and increasingly, negatively affected by the blue light so many of us spend hours looking at in the form of laptops and phones. This is problematic because of circadian rhythms regulate our body—telling us when to eat, sleep and produce hormones. We’ve talked a lot on the Kwik Brain podcast about the power of sleep for our brains, so this is an important issue to be aware of if we want to get the most out of our minds! The Joovv red light therapy device is something I use on a daily basis to ensure I jump start my circadian rhythms and get enough light each day. Today’s guest, Wes Pfiffner, is one of the directors of the company, and he’s here to tell us how impactful red light therapy can be for our bodies and brains. In this episode, we explain the benefits of light therapy, why being conscious of our circadian rhythms is so important, and why we need to watch our usage of blue light. To finish, Wes will give you some quick and simple to harness the power of light in your everyday life. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

How do you create change that lasts? If you want a new result in your life, you have to do a new behavior. To change that behavior, you need a set of capacities, capabilities, and beliefs. If you want something you’ve never had, then you’ve got to do something you’ve never done. They say an average person has about 60,000-70,000 thoughts a day, but the problem is that 90-95% of those thoughts are the same thoughts they had yesterday and the day before that. In other words, if you want to do something brand new, you have to stop doing the same thing. In this episode, I will share 4 keys to turn your “I wish” to “I will,” and make real changes in your behavior and habits. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

Today’s business climate has been marked by the rise of organizations built on the principles of exponential thinking—think Github, Airbnb, and Uber. Companies stuck in old linear thinking patterns, like Kodak, have gone out of business.

So many of us work on our physical health—whether that means going to the gym or for a run—without being aware of the brain health benefits we’re receiving. I’m excited to welcome back today’s guest Shawn Stevenson—founder of the Model Health Show Podcast and health expert—to tell us how we can boost our brain potential through quick and simple physical exercises.    Physical training is a powerful way to boost your brainpower and creativity. Simple exercises like push-ups, squats, daily walk, and sprints can help you improve so many aspects of your overall wellbeing and brain function, from sleep to creativity and brain cell production. There’s a lot of confusion out there about strength training, but the truth is that after years of evolution our body needs and expects us to work hard and lift heavy things—and it doesn’t have to mean complicated hours of workouts at the gym!    Regardless of our age and ability, we can train to prevent our physical and mental muscles from atrophying. In the process, we can improve our mental strength, resilience, sleep, mood and cardiovascular health, among countless other health benefits. If you’re looking for a simple and effective plan to improve your body and brain health, today’s podcast is for you.    In this episode, we’ll explain the benefits of strength training and how it is connected to a happier, healthier brain. We’ll walk you through some quick exercises you can incorporate into your day, and explain how your sleep, productivity, and creativity can be improved in a few minutes a day. We’ll also be doing a deep dive into the top four exercises you can start doing today to boost the health of your mind and brain!    ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

Welcome back, Kwik Brain! In this episode, I’m going share with the secrets to mastering and remembering numbers.   Numbers are everywhere. It’s like a universal language. Telephone numbers, credit cards numbers, zip codes, PINs, passcodes, birthdays, it’s everywhere.   But here’s the challenge. A lot of people have difficulty remembering numbers. Think about something simple like phone numbers and how many phone number you used to be able to remember like 10-15 years ago before we had smartphones.   Now, we’re outsourcing our brains to technology. Granted, why would you want to remember dozen and hundreds of random numbers like phone numbers when you can put into your smartphones?   But have you’ve ever needed to memorize and hold that information in your working memory?   The brain is like a muscle. It grows stronger with use. A lot of us have this flabby “remembering-numbers” muscle.   So if you’ve been feeling your memory is not as strong as it used to be, you can follow along in this episode to get a great mental workout as I give you several tools to remember numbers.   ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

Meditation is a simple path to a healthier, more productive life. I’m excited about today’s conversation with guest Ariel Garten—founder of MUSE, scientist, and expert on mindfulness and entrepreneurship—who is here to tell us how meditating for just a few minutes a day can change our relationship with our brain.    Whether you’re an entrepreneur, an office worker or a parent, learning to be present is how you’ll get the most from your day. By learning how to meditate, you’ll be able to increase the amount of time you spend being truly present in the now. There’s a lot of confusion out there about meditation, but meditation is simply an easy practice we can all do to make our mind better!    Stressful thoughts can lead to a rollercoaster ride of emotions that dictate our behaviors, but we can break this cycle by learning to build a better relationship with our brain. Meditating for just a few minutes a day can teach us to be aware of our thoughts and reign our emotions in when we need to—we can learn to experience emotions as a sensation that will quickly pass, and control our thinking!    In this episode, we’ll give you some great basic information about mediation, explain the difference between meditation and mindfulness, and walk you through a quick exercise to get started. We’ll cover how to integrate meditation into your everyday life, explain why meditation is vital to improving your performance and your health, and hear how Ariel is revolutionizing meditation with her MUSE device.    ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

Today’s guest Beth Comstock—one of America’s most successful businesswomen, author, and a previous leader of innovative change in her role as Vice Chair at GE—is here to tell us why our imagination and creativity are powerful and essential tools to build a new future for ourselves.  Fear can hold us back from making the most of our imagination, as can an unhealthy attachment to safe, familiar routes. So many people don’t take that first step towards making the idea they have in their heads a reality because they’re afraid they won’t be perfect or successful. But as Beth tells us, embracing uncertainty and learning as you go is the only way to move towards growth and success.  In this episode, we’ll explain why imagination, creativity and white space are so important, and why creativity isn’t just something to be done in your free time. We’ll discuss why so many people don’t use their imagination to its full potential, how to cultivate imagination and the importance of vision and story in achieving your goals for a brighter future.

This week’s podcast is all about building a healthy brain—and we welcome special guest Dr. Daniel Amen! This is the final part of a special three-part Kwik Brain series with Daniel, where we’ll be walking you through his seven steps to a healthy brain.  Many of us struggle with focus, mental fatigue, brain fog, and memory loss, and today’s guest Dr. Amen—one of America’s leading psychiatrists who has helped millions of people change their lives and is a ten-time New York Times bestselling author—is here to tell us not only how to counter these problems, but how to build a healthier brain. Our brain controls literally everything—our careers, relationships, health, and happiness.

In this episode, I’m coming to you live from Instagram! I get this question often - “Jim, I know what to do, but I’m not doing what I know. How do I take knowledge and turn it into power? How do I take knowledge and apply and act on the things that I know?” Have you ever felt or done something like this before? You go to a seminar, listen to a podcast, read a book, but nothing changes. Knowledge is not power, but it has the potential to become power only when you apply it and use it. All the books, podcasts, seminars, online programs, coaching; none of it works unless you work. So I’m here to share with you the 3 keys to take knowledge into action because if you don’t act, then you’re not going to get the results. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

Do you watch too much Netflix or check your phone first thing in the morning? We all have habits we want to change for the better. But how do you form healthy habits? Usually, when we’re talking about changing habits, we’re focused mostly on the habits we want to take on, like journaling, meditating, working out at the gym, eating healthy, etc. Or getting rid of negative habits that get in our way of accomplishing the goal. In the previous episodes, we talked about how “you create your habits, then your habits create you.” But how do you go about creating those habits? I’m excited about this episode because we brought in James Clear, the author of Atomic Habits, to talk about how we form habits and the triggers we have in our environment that leads to those habits. Listen in as we go over how tiny changes can have remarkable results on your daily habits. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

How do you have a shredded mind? You can look at somebody’s body and see that person’s physiques, in terms of abs and biceps. But with the brain, you can’t see how fit it is off the bat. So how do you obtain it and how do you know when you have it? To answer this question, we have a very special guest, Dr. Stephanie Estima, who is an expert in this field. She is the founder of The Health Lost, a chiropractor, a mother, and a biohacker.

“To err is human.” How do you deal with mistakes? This is such an important question that you’ll want to take notes on this, and I recommend you listening to it more than once. We all make mistakes. It’s easy to forget that when we’re in the midst of a mess-up. But it’s impossible to avoid miscalculations, mishaps, both big and small. And have you found that the busier you are, the more mistakes you’re likely to make? Maybe you’ve hurt someone’s feelings by saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. Or left the water running and flooded your home, or fumbled the presentation in a meeting, or maybe you lost a client. No matter how impeccable you are or how perfect you feel like you could be, the question is not whether you will make a mistake, but it’s “Will you own it?” So how do you bounce back from a mistake? In this episode, I’m going to share with you 3 kwik things you could do to put mistakes behind you. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

A social dynamics expert and podcast host, today’s guest Jordan Harbinger has years of experience coaching clients to navigate interpersonal relationships and build on their connections. The way we communicate with others on a daily basis contributes over time not just to our personal brand, but the circles of connections we have. Small, thoughtful messages sent daily can completely change the shape of your networks and build relationships with everyone from distant acquaintances to close family — before you even need to rely on them.  In today’s world many of us have learnt to engage solely on social media — think lazily clicking a heart to respond to news from a friend along with hundreds of others rather than picking up the phone to congratulate them — and we are missing out on all the benefits that come with properly nurturing our connections and relationships.  In today’s conversation, we’re going to talk about the best ways to nurture better relationships and ensure you are unforgettable to other people. We’ll give you some practical tips on sending thoughtful messages to others. We’ll leave you with some ideas for re-engaging with your contacts, quickly generating rapport in social situations, and becoming a better listener.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

This week’s podcast is all about the best productivity tools— and we welcome back special guest Ari Meisel!  Modern life is so busy that we all feel like we’re constantly hustling yet still falling behind. We all want more resources and advantage. And we especially want to know the secrets of how to use our minds better to become more productive.  A productivity expert, CEO and best-selling author who has built his career on teaching others how to work smarter—not harder—today’s guest Ari Meisel is here to tell us how we can all learn to be more effective in our daily lives and free up time for the more important things in life.  So many of us have been taught that being productive is all-important, but the truth is that we should be thinking about how we can be more effective—that is, learning how to do more with the resources we already have, rather than burning out trying to produce more. Innovation never comes from having too many resources—it comes from restricting your resources, thinking innovatively about effectiveness and asking yourself: what’s a better way to do this?  In this conversation we talk about the best productivity tools to amplify your effectiveness and save you precious time—we’ve included links in our show notes to the various tools Ari mentions. We talk about the essential steps to becoming more effective—managing your communication, project management, and processes to streamline your operations and increase your productivity.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

This week’s podcast is all about activating your second brain— and we welcome back special guest Naveen Jain!  Just how important is our second brain—our gut? How much does our gut influence our mind? How important is our gut to our health? Why are we spending trillions on healthcare only for many of us to get sicker? Are our genes our destiny?  An international leader in industry disruption and founder of groundbreaking companies such as Viome and Moon Express, today’s guest Naveen Jain has built his career on thinking big, with years of experience applying exponential thinking to a variety of industries, including the healthcare industry.  Our gut is one of the most crucial determinants of our health. If something goes wrong in the gut, it can affect our thinking, decision-making, and risk of disease. Modern living and new chemicals are penetrating our gut lining, meaning that our body is dealing with foreign bodies never before seen—and this is resulting in heightened rates of inflammation and illness despite our ever-rising rates of investment in healthcare.  In today’s conversation, we talk about why you should trust your gut, explain how much control our gut has over our bodies, and explain why genes are not our destiny. We’ll cover the diseases chronic inflammation has been linked with—think everything from Alzheimer's to depression—and leave you with some ideas to increase your knowledge of your health.  Learn more about Naveen’s company Viome: https://www.viome.com/kwik * Please note, this episode is educational only and not intended to diagnose or treat medical conditions. Please consult your healthcare provider if you have any questions or concerns. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

Do you have a busy mind? We often get questions about how to calm and quiet one’s mind in our Kwik Brain Podcast FB Group. We no longer live in the age where we measure success by profit or prestige, but rather by a peace of mind. Do you agree? Your brain is not designed to work at full steam all the time. So regularly simmering down with these tips and hacks is a brilliant move for your wellbeing in life and career. Perhaps you wear a lot of hats and have a long list of to-do’s, and your monkey mind can get out of control. And a majority of the time, the thoughts in our heads aren’t always positive. If you’re struggling with that internal chatterbox, then this episode is for you. I’ll share with you simple questions and tips to get your mind in a more peaceful place when you need it the most. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

In previous episodes, we’ve talked about brain superfoods and what we should be eating to power a healthier, happier brain. Today’s show takes the conversation a step further as we talk about when we should be eating, and how fasting can impact our longevity and brain health.    A common question from the Kwik Brain community has been how we can improve our brain functionality through nutrition and diet. A respected health and science journalist and author of a best-selling book on diet and brain health, today’s guest Max Lugavere has years of health and diet research experience to give you the best advice on improving your brain function through nutrition.    The food we eat matters to our grey matter. When and what we eat can affect our memory, our thinking, our lifespan and our happiness. In today’s world, many of us are chronically eating, which is creating ongoing impacts and stresses on our bodies and brains — this makes sense if you consider we evolved as hunter-gatherers, eating only when we were able to find adequate food.   In today’s conversation we talk about some key nutrients for healthy brain cells, cover Max’s list of top genius foods you should be eating on a daily basis, provide a framework to guide when you eat and explain the effect of fasting on your mental state and metabolism. We’ll explain what current research is saying about fasting, and how you can improve your health through connectedness.    *Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

In today’s episode we’ll be addressing the much-talked-about mind/body connection and exploring how optimizing our body function, posture and movements can affect our minds and improve our brain power. An accomplished manual therapist and movement coach, today’s guest Aaron Alexander has over a decade of experience coaching clients from Olympic athletes to Hollywood actors to improve their health and streamline their daily movements.  The way we move has lasting impacts on our health and longevity. Our posture and daily movements affect our thinking, our happiness, and our general health. In today’s world many of us have learnt to separate our bodies and brains and sacrifice our physical health for the sake of convenience — think taking the elevator instead of the stairs, or jumping in the car for a trip of a couple of blocks — and this is resulting in heightened rates of physical illness and depression despite our ever-rising rates of affluence.  In today’s conversation, we talk about the best ways to sit for a healthier body, explain the brain-body connection, and discuss the effect of posture on your mental state. We’ll give you some practical tips to turn your everyday tasks into the body and brain-boosting missions and ideas for best breathing practices. We’ll leave you with some helpful thoughts on how changing the way you move can reduce health risks and some quick tips for boosting your general health!  *Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

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 guest today. Dr. Mark Hyman is a director of Cleveland Clinique, a center for functional medicine, 11 times bestselling author, along with his new book, “Food, What The Heck Should I Eat?”. Listen in as we go over the top 3 brain foods you should eat AND 3 foods you should avoid. This episode is not intended to diagnose or treat any medical condition, and it’s educational only.

In today’s episode, we are going to answer one of the most asked questions in our Kwik Podcast FB community: “I’m going through a lot of difficult times right now, things are a little bit crazy. How do I stay focused and resilient during these tough times?” When you think about resilience, you think about the capacity to cope with stress and adversity. But it’s not necessarily a trait people are born with. The good news is that it involves behavior, thoughts, habits, mindset, and actions that we can all learn and develop over time. To answer this important topic, I want to introduce you to Tara Mackey. She is a scientist, a #1 bestselling author of “Cured By Nature,” a health & wellness advocate, and an amazing human being. Her story is absolutely incredible. Listen in as she shares her techniques to unlock your mind and master your habits so you can be more resilient throughout your day.

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. But what if you’re feeling like this on most days? Then you might be suffering from a burnout. Our bodies and brains are equipped to handle stress in short bursts, but not over long extended periods of time. The impact of burnout is very real. Lack of motivation, decrease in confidence and performance, increased moodiness, negative thinking, all of which lower the quality of life you desire and deserve. But this burnout is a signal, not a sentence. So in this episode, I would like to talk about the signs of burnout AND the solutions you can apply to negate them. *Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

“Do EMFs harm your brain?” I get a lot of questions about learning, brain health, and etc. in our private fb group, and I came a crossed this question we haven’t addressed yet. I know it’s hard to imagine living in a world without your smartphones and computers, but what does living in a sea of electronics do to our brains?

In this episode, Dr. Mercola will share tools and strategies you can use to protect yourself and your family from possible harmful effects of EMFs.

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? The fountain of youth is found between your ears. In this episode, I would like to talk about brain tips based on Dr. Daniel Amen’s book, “Use Your Brain to Change Your Age.” We all want a brain that’s healthy and agile.

We can keep our brain young by developing new connection through novelty and nutrition. And in this episode, I want to talk about some of the exercises you can do to create more connections in your brain.  20 Tips to help you become a lifelong learner: Find your motivation to learn something new.

Ask yourself, “How am I smart?” Find your learning style.. Don’t stop challenging your brain. Meditate. Boost your pre-frontal cortex by setting goals. Boost your brain’s flexibility by reflecting.
