When you’re reading something, do you ever lose focus? Do you ever get tired and fatigued? Do you ever get frustrated?

When people are reading, one of the biggest complaints I hear is that they get tired while reading.

To help you with that, I brought my sleep doctor and one of my dear friends, Dr. Michael Breus, on today’s episode to talk about sleep, reading, and chronotypes (the science of best times WHEN to do things for YOUR specific body type).

He's written a number of books, including “The Power of When” and “The Sleep Doctor’s Diet Plan.”

In less than 15 minutes, you will discover: 

  • How to overcome reading fatigue
  • The worst time of the day to read (it’s not what you think)
  • 5 easy sleep hacks for deep rejuvenation and greater mental energy
  • How to minimize fixations to prevent excessive eye strain
  • And more...

 

* Want to go deeper in learning to read faster with better comprehension and without falling asleep? I’d like to invite you to become one of the top 1% readers in the world by joining my new Kwik Reading program.

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.

Be sure to check out her brand new book, “Wild Habits,” at www.wildhabitsbook.com and you can find her @taraamackey on socials.

The more you learn, the more dots you can connect.

How do you become an exponential thinker? What does it mean to be an exponential thinker or a really BIG thinker?

We talk a lot about how our life is a reflection of our thinking. This is the millennium of the mind. We get paid to think. It’s not our brute strength, but brain strength.

I’m very honored to bring my friend, Naveen Jain, on this episode to share with you some of the ideas to becoming an exponential thinker.

He is a very successful entrepreneur, philanthropist, and created a number of businesses including, Moon Express, the only company in the world given permission to leave Earth’s orbit and land on the moon.

Strap in as we share some of the principles and ideas of exponential thinking, and how you can train yourself to think exponentially.

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 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?

I was recently at an anti-aging conference where I shared the stage with Dr. Joseph Mercola, who can offer very strong advice in this area so I took the opportunity to ask him some questions about EMFs and the effect it has on the brain.

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.

Dr. Mercola is a multiple New York Times Bestselling Author, and his website www.Mercola.com is one of the world’s leading natural health website with millions of monthly visitors.

This interview is not intended as medical advice. Please do your research and talk to your healthcare practitioner for any questions you may have.

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. In this book, I dedicated a chapter on lifelong learning and how to use that to keep your brain young, agile, and adaptable.

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:

  1. Find your motivation to learn something new.
  2. Read books, not just articles and emails.
  3. Turn your car into University on wheels.
  4. Stop telling yourself you have a poor memory.
  5. Don’t let school get in the way of your education.
  6. Use your creativity to memorize a list.
  7. Remember names.
  8. Use a visual pacer to read.
  9. Sharpen your brain during leisure time.
  10. Try something new.
  11. Teach to someone else.
  12. Take notes.
  13. Be curious.
  14. Ask yourself, “How am I smart?”
  15. Find your learning style..
  16. Don’t stop challenging your brain.
  17. Meditate.
  18. Boost your pre-frontal cortex by setting goals.
  19. Boost your brain’s flexibility by reflecting.
  20. Get enough rest.

You can pick 2 or 3 new activities from this list to add to your day. Which ones are you going to incorporate?

Cheers to your ageless brain!
