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.

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.

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.

Test, track and improve. This podcast is a lot of fun, with a guy who seriously knows what he is talking about.

As you may know, I am an unashamed geek when it comes to tracking stuff. It's really not as tricky as it sounds though. It only takes about 90 seconds a night to track everything (lifestyle factors, supplements, energy levels and sleep quality) on a big old excel spreadsheet. Then, rather than wondering if meditation helps me feel more relaxed, or drinking loads of wine the night before a big day has a negative impact (duh), I have the data to prove it. This movement is known as Quantified Self, and there are some enlightened discoveries being made by people every day.

More and more people are tracking every day, using devices like the Jawbone (modelled by yours truly below).


Today's Zestology guest is Josh Trent. He is the founder of Wellness Force Radio, he’s been called a “Top 50 Digital Health Influencers of 2015,” and he’s a Quantified Self enthusiast & expert in Fitness Technology. With national accreditation from multiple fitness organizations and over 10 years of experience in the health & fitness industry, Josh is going to dig deep into the quantified self and explain just how to get the most out of those tricky fitness trackers.

It's a double-header, we recorded Josh's podcast first, and then Zestology, and so if you enjoy this episode of Zestology do head over to Wellness Force for more.

Motivation, achievement and what it takes to endure with ultraendurance man Dean Karnazes #56

The secrets of motivation, from an ultraendurance athlete

This week’s guest Dean Karnazes does it all—seriously.
Not only is he a renowned endurance athlete and accomplished author, but he also works with several Fortune 500 companies all around the world, helping employees transform into elite leaders and managers.

Dean is, in a word, impressive. So impressive that TIME named him one of the “Top 100 Most Influential People in the World” and Men’s Fitness honored him as one of the fittest men on the planet.

Our topic this week? Motivation and achievement.


Dean’s got it in spades, and so can you. We’re chatting nitty gritty, including how he knocked off 50 marathons spanning 50 U.S. states in just 50 days and what it takes to run 350 miles across 80 sleep-free hours.


Even if you aren’t angling to run a marathon (or run anything for that matter), Dean’s got a lot to say on getting and staying motivated no matter what you’re up against.

This week, some of the world’s greatest medical mysteries:

  • Does stress really make you grey?
  • Are flip flops bad for your feet?
  • Do piercings help alleviate headaches?

Yeh, uh, perhaps not world's greatest, but important stuff, right?

This week’s guest, Good Housekeeping beauty editor Sam Escobar, has a lot to say on these topics and then some. Her life, in many ways, sits at that intersection between health and beauty, in a space that practically all of us are chattering about in one way or another.

It was lovely to hang out in NYC with Manhattan as a backdrop too. 

Ready for a listen?
