Everybody wants a healthier body, but it’s something many people struggle to achieve. You know how important it is to focus on what you eat and how you exercise, but you might be surprised to learn that one of the most fundamental elements holding you back is your thoughts.

Confidence is something we talk about a lot in the Kwik Brain community. We know confidence is the cornerstone of learning, leadership, and life.

How do you get back up after a setback?

There’s a success quote that says the key to success is falling down seven times but getting back up eight. It’s a message of resilience. But how do you get back up when you’ve been knocked down in business, relationships, or even your health? Is there a strategy to getting back up?

We have a very special guest, Dr. Heather Smith-Fernandez, today to talk about the steps you can take to get up after a setback. She’s the founder and director at the Regenerative Institute and is the inventor of Peptology, a non-invasive treatment protocol to help repair and restore health on a cellular level.

You probably heard me say, "when you know how your brain works, then you can work your brain."

You have an incredible gift between your ears, but it doesn't come with an owner's manual. Knowing how to use your whole brain isn't something you're taught or necessarily know how to do in school or anywhere. 

That's why I'm very excited to have Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor on the show today. If her name sounds familiar, it's likely because you watched her TEDtalk or read her memoir, My Stroke of Insight, which we've included on our recommended book list for many years now. 

Today we're going to discuss her newest book, Whole Brain Living: The Anatomy of Choice and the Four Characters That Drive Our Lives. This book is a myth-buster in so many ways. 

Listen in as Dr. Jill discusses the myths of the brain and goes into the mechanics of getting your brain to work for you. If you've ever wondered what the secret for making good choices in your life is so that you can live the life you deserve and desire, this episode is for you.

How do you create your own positive peer group?

There are many aspects that go into optimizing your brain health. A good brain diet, sleep, reducing and managing stress. But there’s one element that isn’t always given as much time and focus, and that’s how to create a positive peer group. 

You’ve likely heard the following phrases regarding personal development. Who you spend time with is who you become. You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. That’s because optimizing your brain health isn’t always about your neurological networks but your social networks as well. 

Today, we’re thrilled to talk to Jon Levy. He’s a behavioral scientist and award-winning author of his newest book; You’re Invited: The Art and Science of Cultivating Influence

Listen in, as Jon takes you through how to expand your social circle by creating meaningful relationships built on trust.

What are the best ways to breathe for optimal brain performance?

Breathing affects everything in your life, from our focus, concentration, mental energy, vitality, immune system, and so much more. Yet, you may not be doing it the right way.

Like many things, such as memory, focus, and concentration, breathing optimally was not one of those things you were taught in school.

Today, we have a breathing expert, James Nestor. He’s a science journalist and author of the New York Times best-selling book Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art.

This episode has so much packed in, be sure you listen with the intention of teaching someone else. Remember, when you learn something to explain it to someone else, you get to learn it twice.

How do you build up momentum? 

Today, I want to talk about creating momentum in your learning and your life. 

To become an unstoppable force where you don’t bounce back, you jump forward and create velocity. Because that’s what momentum is. 

If you look up the word in physics, momentum equals mass times velocity. You are mass, and I want you to become the mass in motion. Because when you don’t have momentum, you’re stuck or held back. 

An object in motion tends to stay in action, but an object at rest tends to remain at rest. 

I’d like you to think about what area in your life would like to have more positive momentum towards your hopes and dreams. 

Where would you like to be an unstoppable force, and how would you apply that momentum? 

Listen in as I share the three keys for unleashing positive momentum.

In our previous show with Dr. Gundry, we talked about understanding how the body creates energy and how to reset that process. Be sure to listen to that one if you've missed it.

And in this conversation, we’re going to go into more detail, focusing on some actionable Kwik Tips to tackle reducing brain fog and mental fatigue. Listen in as Dr. Gundry goes into more detail.

Today, I want to talk to you about mindset.

In Limitless, I talk about the three keys to becoming limitless and the first one is the power of your mindset. These are the attitudes and assumptions you have about the things you want to go after.

To get any new result in life, you have to work for it. Practice makes progress. Limitless isn’t about being perfect, it’s about progressing beyond what you currently believe is possible.

Listen in as I talk about how to adjust your mindset by examining the effort you’re willing to put in.
