How to Love People & Use Things, Whether Or Not You're A "Hoarder," Minimalist Diets & Workouts & 7 Essential Relationships with Joshua Millburn.
2022/06/25 I've been interviewed a few times on the outstanding Minimalists podcast with Joshua Millburn and his partner in crime Ryan Nicodemus, who together founded The Minimalists. This time it was I who put one of them on the hot seat for my podcast, and was able to speak with Joshua about his journey into the minimalism mindset, how we sometimes go about it the wrong way, the four stages of hoarding, and much more. At first glance, people might think the point of minimalism is only to get rid of material possessions: Eliminating. Jettisoning. Extracting. Detaching. Decluttering. Paring down. Letting go. But that’s a mistake. True, removing the excess is an important part of the recipe—but it’s just one ingredient. If we’re concerned solely with the stuff, we’re missing the larger point. Minimalists don’t focus on having less, less, less. We focus on making room for more: more time, more peace, more creativity, more experiences, more contribution, more contentment, more freedom. Clearing the clutter frees up the space. Minimalism is the thing that gets us past the things so we can make room for life’s important things—which aren’t thingsat all. In this interview with Joshua Millburn, you'll discover: -Publishing forays in the realm of minimalism... -The four stages of hoarding, and which stage you're likely at... -The "lightbulb" moment when Joshua embraced minimalism... -Starting points into the realm of Minimalism... -Ben and Josh discuss a minimalist diet... -Minimalist exercise and workouts... -Why being busy doesn't make you important, it just makes you busy... -The seven essential relationships in our lives to balance before focusing on relationships with other people... -How social minimalism promotes a life of productivity and creation... -And much more...

And since I've been using Kion Aminos to such great effect lately, I wanted to share what we talked about last year, because I know so many people have begun listening to the show since then. So enjoy! Angelo Keely is the co-founder and CEO of Kion, an active lifestyle, supplement, and functional food company dedicated to helping people fully experience a joyful, active life by providing pure, energy-enhancing solutions. Angelo has a truly diverse and unique background having put himself through college as a professional musician—beatboxing, rapping, and drumming. During our discussion, you'll discover: -How Angelo Keely has become a world-renowned expert on protein... -How Angelo Keely and his health transformation caused a hyper-focus on protein and amino acids... -Overview of the different types of amino acids... -Creatine as an amino acid... -The appropriate amount of protein and aminos to intake... -The ranking of the quality of animal-based protein sources... -The good and bad when it comes to protein powders... -The long history of whey protein... -How to get a protein powder that doesn't taste like ash...

How To Raise Kids Who Aren't Sheeple, Who Swim Upstream & Who Can Gracefully Engage In Divergent Thinking & The Art of Insubordination, With Todd Kashdan.
2022/06/11 When I first received the book The Art of Insubordination: How to Dissent and Defy Effectively by my guest on today's show, Todd Kashdan, I thought it was going to be some fringe rebel handbook or something like TheAlchemist's Cookbook, or a title that was meant to incite riots and violence. I was dead wrong. Instead, this book is a research-based toolbox for anyone who wants to create a world with more justice, creativity, and courage. I eventually wound up interviewing Todd for the episode "The Art Of Insubordination: How To Dissent And Defy Effectively, With Todd Kashdan." But now, Todd is back—and he's back specifically to focus on content that will be featured in my upcoming book Boundless Parenting, which will showcase Todd and 30+ additional amazing parents from around the globe sharing their deep wisdom and advice so that you can be a better parent and better human. Look for that new parenting book to launch in the winter of 2022 and click here to stay updated on the book release. In the meantime, if you want to know how to raise kids who swim upstream, who aren't sheeple, and who can gracefully decline to participate hook, line, and sinker in the anemic social standards of modern society, you'll want to tune in. In this episode, you'll discover: -Todd shares about his children, and what he's most proud about them... -How to train children in the skill of divergent thinking... -Resources Todd uses to raise his daughters... -How to approach relying on others for children's development... -Things Todd learned while writing his book he's passing on to his children... -Reconciling differing parenting styles when mom and dad live under different roofs... -Exposing children to societal taboos in an environment the parent can control... -How to carve out one on one time with children... -Final questions for Todd... -The message for parents Todd would put on a billboard... -And much more...

The Lost Art of Storytelling, Why We Should Love Mondays as Much as Fridays, Why You Need a Health Coach and More with Made to Thrive Founder Steve Stavs.
2022/06/09 Welcome to the show. Today's episode is with biohacker and podcaster Steve Stavs from South Africa, whom I met at the Health Optimisation Summit held in the latter part of May 2022. Steve Stavs’ philosophy is one of researching to reveal. He has spent his life immersing himself in knowledge and then turning these insights into actionable strategies designed to enhance the human state. He is a successful entrepreneur, leadership coach, international lecturer, and holistic practitioner. Steve continues to run his wellness practice Made To Thrive, which he launched 20 years ago. He has aided many to reach their highest potential in all aspects of their lives and this has inspired him to take both his message and his mission to a wider audience. (You can save 15% on coaching and consulting with code BEN15 along with 5% off products in the shop with code BEN5.) Steve draws on his background in Western Medical Practices and integrates the best of this knowledge with the profound teachings of Ancestral Living and Chinese Medicine. Thousands of patients can testify to the effectiveness of this comprehensive approach, which combines an understanding of ancient traditional cultures while including the most researched science in biochemistry, physiology, psychology, and nutrition. An avid athlete, Steve is dedicated to exploring the boundaries of physical ability and pushing his body to its optimal performance. He is a Green Number Comrades runner and one of his ultimate goals is to run the Comrades Marathon at the age of 100. Steve supports the Community of the Hope Risen Foundation–a nonprofit organization founded by Tabitha and Rob Lage, who are passionate about ensuring humans have absolute freedom to live out their true purpose, know their why, and live according to this ethos. Hope Risen has a vision to spread Hope, Love, and Justice in the quest to end modern-day slavery and exploitation. They are passionate about helping survivors of human trafficking shine again. The foundation runs a number of prevention and awareness initiatives alongside direct interventions to rescue, restore and reintegrate women, men, and children who have been exploited. Steve asked me if he could interview me for his podcast. I told him he could, but only if he can keep up with me on one of my aerobically and intellectually challenging "walk & talk" podcasts. "Not a problem," replied Steve, and I believed him—as he is also the founder of the Comrades Marathon, an annual 56-mile race that builds community (and some serious physical resilience) among members of his community in S. Africa. So Steve can take some steps! And thus we took to the backstreets and parks of London during some free time from the summit and discussed many topics, such as: Fear vs. purpose-based motivation The African word for "community" and how it differs from our conception in the West The lost art of storytelling Why the "free" biohacks are just as important as the expensive gadgets found at your favorite conference And more... I enjoyed our conversation so much that I wanted to share it on my podcast feed as well. So I hope you enjoy it (and you'll hear that Steve was able to keep up with me just fine!). In this episode, you'll discover: -Steve describes the Comrades Marathon... -Fear vs. purpose based motivation for human action... -Ubuntu and the spirit of community... -An environment that facilitates success... -Storytelling as a means of building community... -Arts and music as a means of healing... -Gathering and preparing food that sustains community... -Putting biohacking in its place regarding our quality of life... -The most important biohacking metrics when it comes to stress and anxiety... -The importance of having a health coach... -Embracing suffering to bring joy... -Ben Greenfield's message of hope for the future... -And much more...

Why The World Needs Heroes, "The Humility Of The Hero" & A Call To Action: Ben Greenfield's Speech From PaleoFx 2022.
2022/06/04 There's a revolution on the horizon... ...led by a collective of people who are willing to speak up for what they believe in. I call them heroes. Today, more than ever, the world needs heroes. Now, I'm not talking about Rambo- or Terminator-type heroes. I'm talking about heroes who, like the great hero Jesus Christ, have the meekness and humility of a gentle lamb and the courage and ferocity of a mighty lion. We need heroes who can admit when they're wrong, and who tend lovingly to the garden of their spirit and their soul. Recently, I had the opportunity to speak to a large audience about why it's imperative to surround ourselves with a community of individuals who know how to surrender, sacrifice, and serve. I was asked to give a keynote speech at Paleo f(x), the world's premier wellness event, covering the 7 pillars of health–physical, mental, emotional, relational, spiritual, financial, tribal, (and more!)–for optimizing your health, expanding your mind, and reclaiming your freedom. Over three days, there were 100+ speakers and 8,000+ attendees. It's one of the most fun, inspiring, and educational events I attend all year long. From the stellar speakers to the amazing networking, to the killer parties and food, nothing like it exists, period. I could have spoken on any topic related to biohacks, gear, and fitness—as you know, I've spent plenty of time on those subjects in the past. What I felt called to reflect on, though, was this concept of heroism and the Hero's Journey. The theme of this year's Paleo f(x) was Primal Uprising, which felt like the perfect forum to delve into something a little more important. My inspiration for the speech was the article The Humility Of The Hero: A Call To Action (& 4 Ways To Be The Hero The World Needs Right Now). It's scary crossing over from your ordinary world, but nothing can replace the feeling of when you reach deep down and speak up for what you believe in. Here, I share the entire keynote speech from Paleo f(x), during which I talk about the Hero's Journey, overcoming addictions, the importance of serving others, and much more. I hope you find it inspirational. In this episode, you'll discover: -Why this generation needs heroes... -The Hero's Journey defined... -Why we're wired to embrace the Hero's Journey... -Surrender your attachments and addictions... -Why a real hero often defies the romanticized stereotypes... -Service is the foundation of the hero's journey... -Put on your spiritual armor... -What to do when you feel the call to the Hero's Journey... -How do you identify your mission and purpose in life?... -And much more...

The Future Of Plants, Sustainable Agriculture, Vertical Farming, AI-Driven Personalized Nutrition, Child Education & More With Willo's Sam Bertram.
2022/06/02 - code BEN20 for $20 off Reservation Fee Samuel Bertram is the CEO and co-founder of OnePointOne, an AgTech startup in the Bay Area that has developed the most sophisticated indoor farming technology in the world. Born in 1993, Samuel grew up with his brother, John (co-founder and CTO of OnePointOne) in Wheelers Hill, Victoria, Australia. Samuel (and John) came to the United States to play collegiate tennis in 2011. Samuel captained his Division 1 Tennis team at Santa Clara University and graduated in 2016 with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, and in 2018 with an M.S. in Robotics and Mechatronics. While at Santa Clara, Samuel was involved in the creation of an autonomous marine vessel as well an autonomous omnidirectional robot. Samuel’s Master’s Capstone Project was the origin of OnePointOne’s technology. Samuel and John founded OnePointOne, Inc. in July of 2017 with a mission to nourish the 1.1 billion people that began this millennium hungry. Since then, Samuel has raised over $60M from notable investors such as Fred Luddy, Novak Djokovic, and HRH Khaled bin Alwaleed. With that funding, the incredible team at OnePointOne has built the most advanced vertical farming technology on the market (according to Bain & Company). OnePointOne, Inc. employs a completely unique combination of aeroponics, automation, and AI, and stands apart in the field of indoor farming in terms of productivity, resource efficiency, and data capabilities. OnePointOne’s Cultivation Chambers (CCs) are two-story tall, fully-enclosed cubes that grow a wide variety of berries, flowers, root crops, and leafy greens. Their fleet of robots manages the facility’s operations, which include: plant movement, plant inspection, cleaning, light movement, and more. OnePointOne plans to build hundreds of these CCs throughout the world to combat major crises in health, nutrition, and medicine. OnePointOne focuses on robotics and automation, agricultural technology, plant-based food and medicine, digital cities, and the Human condition. Recently, OnePointOne launched "Willo", which is the future of personalized nutrition. Willo grows the best tasting produce on the planet. Members discover how complex, robust, and delicious produce can be. And their greens are built to last. With Willo, you can guarantee that your produce will last 2-4 times longer than what you would find at a conventional grocery store. Gone are the days of throwing out expensive greens that spoil just a few days after buying with them. Everything Willo grows begins exclusively with a non-GMO seed, with each plant receiving the perfect mixture of elements to maximize taste and nutrient density. By providing the ideal composition of elements for each crop, they can grow exceptional produce in significantly less time while amplifying the plant’s natural ability to fuel and heal you. Willo's technology virtually eliminates the environmental impact of agriculture. Designed with sustainability in mind, Willo’s crops are grown in a 100% controlled environment. This means that every single farming element is meticulously cared for, including the seeds, light, water, nutrients and air, resulting in the most pristine produce on the market. Their farms can grow anywhere on the planet all year round. Imagine the most perfect tomato you’ve ever eaten, grown in the dead of winter and delivered to your doorstep mere days after it’s been harvested. Remember the taste of that fresh lemon basil you had on that trip to Thailand, and every other noodle dish has paled by comparison since—how would you like a fresh supply always in your kitchen? Picture a super kale that delivers an amazing supply of 4 vitamins and minerals in a single serving and tastes unbelievably delicious while doing it. And that’s just the beginning. During this discussion, you'll discover: -Sam's journey into the health and fitness field... -Discussi
