Recently, I've been enjoying going back and inviting some of the very best Zestology guests on again to catch up and see what they've been up to since the last time.

Derek Loudermilk has been up to some serious adventures (scroll down for pics). And that's cool, because he hosts The Art of Adventure podcast. In fact I was on Derek's podcast previously... episode 43 if you want to check that out.

Coming up:

  • How to use adventure to make better decisions,
  • How to listen to your animal body,
  • The way to use state management
  • And why becoming a super connector might be a good idea.

This podcast is brought to you by Bulletproof Coffee and supplements. Bulletproof is for anyone that wants to perform better, and features supplements and products based on 20 years of mind and body performance research. I use Bulletproof - all the time - and I've sorted a 10% discount for Zestology listeners. Simply use the code ZESTOLOGY at checkout. (Code works in both US and UK/Europe stores).

How to improve your focus with leading performance coach Karl Morris #83

According to scientists, we are surrounded by so much technology these days, even a goldfish can now focus on something for longer than a human.

Researchers surveyed 2,000 participants, and the results showed the average human attention span has fallen from 12 seconds in 2000, or around the time the mobile revolution began, to eight seconds.

Goldfish, meanwhile, are believed to have an attention span of nine seconds.

Yeh, we need to do something about this.

When I spoke to my friend Karl Morris on Zestology a while back, it got a big response. He's a leading performance coach in the world of sport and kind of a big deal (though he'd be far too modest to admit that himself).

Last time we looked at designing a good day, and asked the question, 'What does a good day look like'.

So we've gone in for more good days, more staying in the present and more what Karl calls Neutral Thinking.  It all adds up to improving your focus and attention.

How will this podcast help you? You'll get tips on staying in the moment, and improving your attention and focus.

And we look at mindset too. Not positive thinking (which can be unrealistic), not negative thinking (which is just meh), but Neutral Thinking, which is more based on being optimistic but realistic at the same time.

Natasha Corrett is one of the UK's best known chefs and healthy eaters. She's got a ridic amount of followers on Insta/Facebook/Twitter etc, but despite all the press she's done and her huge profile, when she met me, it was the first podcast interview she's ever done.

And it was a good one too - very revealing.

I came with at least two things that I'm changing straightaway. One of them, randomly, doesn't involve cooking but high-tech fire alarms. Nice one Natasha and thank you. 

When you listen to the podcast, you'll also hear Natasha and I talking about her, Jamie Oliver, and a very large mushroom. Click here to see the outrageous shroom pic.

Coming up: one of the most emotional stories I've had on Zestology.

Gemma Oaten is a well-known actress here in the UK, rising to fame on Emmerdale. (Try explaining the appeal of Emmerdale to an American!)

Behind her rise though was an almost unbelievable tale of triumph over adversity. She has had it rough. Gemma was only 10 when she first became ill after negative comments at school affected her self esteem. And from there it was a downhill spiral into an eating disorder.

Today on Zestology, Gemma's story of how she nearly lost it all and before getting back to full health and fulfilling her dreams.

The Sleep Doctor - with Dr. Michael Breus #80

How do you sleep? I thought I knew most of the important stuff about sleep, morning routines, and caffeine, but I just interviewed Dr. Oz's sleep doctor specialist, Dr Michael Breus, and he told me some stuff that blew my mind. 

I'm actually writing this with a cup of coffee by my side, and I've changed my morning routine (and coffee routine) because of the information I learnt from Dr. Breus.

He's seriously well qualified. In addition to his private practice where he treats athletes, celebrities, and the like, he also "trains other sleep doctors and consults with major airlines, hotel chains, and retailers to provide the optimum sleep experience for their customers."

So if you're interested in improving your sleep, and therefore performance and energy levels - listen to today's Zestology.

Dr Breus is a legendary sleep doc and is seriously well qualified. In addition to his private practice where he treats athletes, celebrities, and the like, he also "trains other sleep doctors." That'll do for me.

Sascha Kindred has taken part in every Paralympics since Atlanta (yes in the mid 90s). He's got gold medals galore, and all that despite a doctor originally telling him and his family that he would never walk in his life. Coming up:

  • How Sascha overcame adversity to get where he is.
  • The special light-based alarm clock Sascha uses to help him wake up in the morning.
  • Preparation is key, without that he feels lost.
  • His silver medals mean more to him than gold. (Why??)
  • The Queen made a very embarrassing gaffe the first time Sascha met her. (Yes, he's met her multiple times...)

If you like to get motivated by the best, then do listen to today's podcast... Sascha is a very straightforward guy with so much to inspire us with.

Bust stress like a boss - with celebrity trainer and entrepreneur Angela Martindale #78

The way to bust stress and change unhealthy habits all comes down to consistency.

According to her, it takes 21 days to create a healthy habit. So whatever you want to achieve, if you're willing to give it 21 days, you could change things permanently.

Sometimes on my podcast Zestology I get very specific - into the nitty gritty of supplements, lifestyle practices and the science of feeling good. And then sometimes, I like to meet and pick the brains of interesting, successful and prominent people with a damn good story to tell. Roll on this week - yep this pic is me hanging out with 80s pop sensation Sinitta.

Sinitta has 14 international hit singles. I was basically singing along to her music in the 80s.

She is a mentor on The X Factor and she now makes her own fitness videos.

But one of the best moments in our chat - I thought - was when she told the long and yes, maybe even a bit painful story of how she realised she "wasn't famous any more", and how she dealt with some serious ups and downs.

Why is it important to take risks, and how can we take more risks and get outside our comfort zone?

Science journalist and writer Kayt Sukel has no problem tackling interesting (and often taboo) subjects spanning love, sex, neuroscience, travel and politics.

In fact, she's so dedicated to the cause that in the writing of her last book, she had an orgasm in an MRI scanner for a Guardian article. (I won't put the link, I'm sure you can google that one yourself).

Her work has appeared in the Atlantic Monthly, the New Scientist, USA Today, the Washington Post and many others. And now, she's tackling risk.

The Law of Attraction just sounds a little too good to be true. Think about something enough and it will happen. It just sounds so... convenient.

Law of Attraction coach Jeannette Maw decided it would be awesome to appear on Oprah to talk about what she does. So, she used the Law of Attraction and the next thing she knew, she was appearing on national TV. Wow. How did she do it, and how can we do it too? 

The Law of Attraction. Does it work? 

Jeannette is a Master Certified Coach and founder of Good Vibe University. She describes herself as a full time manifesting geek on a mission to inspire conscious creators.

I'm sceptical, what about you? Listen on to make up your own mind.

Have you heard of dutch daredevil "The Iceman", Wim Hof, yet? If not, you have a treat in store in this week's podcast.

I first saw him speak in California last year. This guy is incredible. He holds 20 world records, including a world record for longest ice bath.

Wim has shown what the human body is capable of once you find the flow within your physical and mental state.

He describes his ability to withstand extreme cold temperatures as being able to "turn his own thermostat up" by using his mind through yoga. He climbed to 6.7 kilometres (22,000 ft) altitude at Mount Everest wearing nothing but shorts and shoes. I know! And he completed a full marathon above the arctic circle in Finland, in temperatures close to โˆ’20 ยฐC (โˆ’4 ยฐF). Dressed in nothing but shorts, Hof finished in 5 hours and 25 minutes. 

Listen to today's podcast for the opportunity to reach out and do more than what you thought you were capable of. 

Through the right training and exercises, you can strengthen your inner nature and prevent disease.
