How to improve your life with NLP, meditation and hypnosis, recorded live in London with Tony Wrighton #34

The set of skills that can help you be happier, healthier and more persuasive.

Millions use NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) every day, and I've trained to the highest level in it. It's the basis for my books, audiobooks and underpins much of what we do on Zestology too. But what the hell is NLP - apart from a strange and slightly confusing name - and how could you use it now? 

I recently made a conference speech about Zestology, meditation and the power of NLP. So this weekโ€™s Zestology podcast was recorded live at the NLP Talks event in Central London. My musings were basically a series of stories from my life and how NLP has shaped it, changed it and improved it. 

The event also included the best heckle I've ever had! Listen out at around 16 minutes on the podcast for this random shout out from the crowd.

If you'd like any of the following, then listen on for my personal experiences of NLP.

  • Feel happier or more confident.
  • Inspire others.
  • Get creative (and build a cool sidecar like the one in the pic at the bottom of this blog. Not sure anyone could actually fit in that though...)
  • Improve your presentation skills.
  • Feel motivated towards something coming up in the future.
  • Achieve different goals.
  • Be more persuasive.
  • Improve at sport
  • Get over a phobia.

Show notes (for reference - or if you want to skip to the most important bits).

  • Using your powers and skills for good [2:50]
  • The most persuasive word in the world [6:20]
  • Do what works [9:00]
  • Becoming ill in the jungle [10:40]
  • Escaping the screens [13:50]
  • Switching off for 2 hours a day [16:20]
  • Meditation and hypnosis [17:40]
  • The value of sleep health and hygiene [19:45]
  • Blue blocking glasses [21:40]
  • Quantified self [23:10]

  • Does hiring someone to slap you in the face every time you use Facebook improve your productivity levels?

Hey Sauerkraut fans! (Silence). Actually I love sauerkraut, and confess I am a bit of a fermented foods geek although I've never plucked up the courage to DIY at home. But whatever you think of it, there is a very good reason for fermenting, and it is not necessarily to introduce some tasty healthy recipes into our diet. Although it does that too.

It’s because an increasing body of research suggests that fermented foods can influence not just our gut health, but our brain health as well. The gut-brain link comes up again!

In a recent study researchers at UCLA demonstrated that daily consumption of a fermented product containing five different strains of probiotic bacteria actually changed the brain’s emotional response to various stimuli, as measured on an advanced brain imaging thingamijig!

In other words, putting more fermented good stuff into your tummy can have a major impact on your high performance levels, and change how your brain works.

Jill Ciciarelli is the owner of First Comes Health, a certified holistic health coach, and the author of a fantastic book, Fermented: A four season approach to Paleo probiotic foods. Jill is definitely your go-to expert for all your home-fermenting needs and how it could change your life, your gut and your brain health.

  • Should you go low fat or high fat?
  • Are protein shakes good for you?
  • Is being vegetarian and vegan healthier?

The answers to these questions and many more coming up today - on a need to know basis.

Rhiannon Lambert has an amazing story, and was an excellent guest to interview.

At the age of 16 she was plucked from obscurity to become one of the UK’s leading sopranos. Catapulted into a glamorous world, she became famous for her voice. She’d made a hugely successful career for herself, but behind the scenes, was struggling with the pressure.

She tells this story today on Zestology, and how she started to get involved in nutrition, healthy eating and wellbeing.

She now still sings all around the world - in fact as you’ll hear she’s singing at the Rugby World Cup this week - and combines that with a successful career in nutrition. Her online blogs and social media sites are hugely popular, she works as a nutritional consultant from two different clinics on Harley Street, with olympic athletes, celebrities, NHS hospitals and specialises in eating disorders as well.

She is - in short - busy.

Rhiannon is an awesome Zestology guest. In today’s show we start with Rhiannon’s story, and then move onto the 8 need to know nutrition facts. This podcast truly is about the dramatic impact healthy eating can have on performance at the highest level.

When you listen you'll hear:

  • The Singing Nutritionist [3:30]
  • Struggling with the pressure of a career in the public eye [6:30]
  • Finding something that works for you [12:18]
  • 8 Need-to-know food facts [15:00]

  • Sugar as a “wrinkle monster” [19:10]
