How do you conquer your mind for greater happiness, strength, and health?

 

We have a very special guest today, Wim Hof. Wim got his nickname “The Iceman” after he broke many records with regards to resisting cold. Some of his feats include climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in shorts, running a half marathon above the Arctic Circle on his bare feet, and standing in a container while covered with ice cubes for more than 112 minutes.

 

Wim is convinced that our bodies are capable of doing the same exceptionally things his body allows him to do. Therefore, he has developed his Wim Hof Method that gives ordinary people the tools to take control over their body.

 

In this episode, we will go over how to activate parts of your brain using the Wim Hof Method to enable parts of your mind to accomplish greater feats.

How do you become a multi-sensory learner?

You may be asking, “what is a multi-sensory learner? Is it going to help me with my focus? Is it going to help me retain information better? Is it going to make me a creative thinker?” And my answer is astounding, YES.

Multi-sensory learning is the idea that individuals learn better if you were taught using more than one of your senses.

When it comes to learning, the more senses you stimulate, the more you’re able to learn and attain new knowledge.

In this episode, I’m going to share with you different learning styles and how you can apply them into remembering abstract concepts like numbers.

How do we release happy brain chemicals and not feel loneliness

 

Studies are indicating that loneliness leads to Alzheimer, dementia, and other mental challenges. Even though we’re more connected than ever before via social media, the level of loneliness people feel have been arising.

 

To dive deeper into this topic, I have my good friend, Radha Agrawal, in the studio today!

 

Radha is a community force, successful entrepreneur (Co-Founder THINX, LiveItUp), author, globe-trotting speaker, DJ, inventor, and investor.

 

Her new book BELONG answers the questions, "how the heck do I find my people?" and "How do I create large and meaningful communities in the real world?". She spent 18 months synthesizing her key methods for community building, peeling back the curtain on exactly what she and her team did (and continues to do) at Daybreaker so that anyone interested in creating their community could have a blueprint for how to do it.

 

Enjoy!

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!

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.

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.

Today’s podcast is all about the power of imagination—and we welcome special guest Beth Comstock!

As the pace of change increases exponentially, we’re all going to be searching for ways to solve problems we’ve never had before. 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. This talk is about getting some inspiration and instruction on how to unleash the power between your ears. 

Dr. Amen’s book Change Your Brain, Change Your Life has impacted so many people's lives, including mine. It’s an honor to have him as an extraordinary guest on the podcast, and today we’ll be diverging from our usual guest interview format in order to give you access to an exclusive talk by Dr. Amen that we hosted at a private gathering for our Kwik Brain students.

In this episode, Dr. Amen will tell what we should be avoiding, and what we should be doing, to achieve great brain health.

As Dr. Amen says in the introduction: “if you pay attention to me, this information has the ability to improve everything in your life”—so don’t forget to take lots of notes and enjoy!
