Gretchen Rubin on experiments in the pursuit of happiness and good habits #65

"Don't let books become the spinach of your life"

Just one of my favourite quotes from Gretchen Rubin in this week's Zestology podcast. By this she means don't only read worthy books/eat spinach because you feel obliged. Read and eat the good stuff.

Gretchen is a big name and an awesome guest for Zestology podcast. And books were quite a theme in this interview. She's the author of several blockbuster New York Times bestsellers. She has an enormous readership, both in print and online, and her books have sold more than two million copies worldwide, in more than thirty languages.

So I spoke to her on this podcast about upgrading some of our habits. Like:

  • How to read more
  • How to get over decision fatigue
  • And how to pass the toothpaste test (we basically invented this during the podcast)

Good habits help you to make better decisions, as it turns out. So listen to Gretchen help you upgrade your habits.

Bulletproof's Dave Asprey was recently in the UK and we recorded a live Zestology podcast in front of a packed-out crowd in East London.

But exactly which supplements does the world's best known biohacker take? When I asked Dave this question, he pulled out a bag full of pills, described each one in great detail, and then chugged the lot. Find out exactly what's in his stack and what should be in yours by listening to the podcast here.

Also in this podcast we cover:

  • Why travelling on the tube could be seriously bad for your health
  • How to deal with the British weather and always feel warm
  • The most bulletproof alcohol to drink in a London pub
  • What to give your kids (and yourself) for breakfast
  • The top three things you can do to upgrade your performance levels according to Dave
  • So much more

Longevity would be nice, right? Living longer and being super healthy to really enjoy that long life.

Today's Zestology podcast guest Daniel Reid knows all about how to do this. He's a bestselling author on the ancient practices of Taoism, with his book The Tao of Health, Sex and Longevity.

I loved this book, so I got in touch with Dan in Byron Bay, Australia and he stayed up late to come on Zestology. He's a colourful character with a huge amount of knowledge, and he's lived a full and fascinating life, as you'll hear.

I asked him to pick 5 rules for living a long and healthy life.

Follow these 5 rules and  as you'll hear you might live to the age of 243.*
