Good relationships and energy are interlinked. You're not going to feel full of zest if things aren't good at home. And lockdown has put more of a strain on relationships than ever before, which is why I asked Stephanie Stahl to come on Zestology.

She's been published in 29 languages and her book is coming out in the UK.

She’s been described by Psychology as Germany’s psychotherapist superstar, and the savour of all people who are imperfect, beset by crises and fearful of relationships’.

Her whole thing is accessing and sorting out the inner shadow child. Listen on to find out more.

Today's podcast partner is the incredible Fum.

FUM is a natural essential oil inhaler. It’s way more powerful than using a diffuser in your house. I’ve been particularly enjoying peppermint which I use before recording a podcast.

Maneesh Sethi is the mad scientist behind Pavlok- a wearable that retrains your brain.  He’s worked with major influencers like Tim Ferris, he’s a famous DJ in Berlin, and he’s even hosted a TV pilot on the Travel Channel.  Is there anything that this guy can’t do?  

The Pavlok wristband was invented after Sethi stumbled upon a pamphlet of a 60’s aversion research.

Sethi had severe ADHD and couldn’t focus or complete a single task or project without losing concentration. After landing the study reports, Sethi paid someone to hit him every time he strayed from the work at hand. This method proved useful and led to the invention of the first Pavlok prototype. It's just grown from there. 

Today's podcast partner is CogniBiotics, the breakthrough mood-enhancing formula made by BiOptimizers.

This formula starts with a solid foundation of prebiotics and probiotics to support gut health and positive feelings in a safe and natural way.

But it doesn’t stop there!

CogniBiotics also includes 17 powerful brain herbs to enhance mood, manage stress, and improve memory.

If you think about it, CogniBiotics is almost like two supplements in one because of how it supports your mood and brain health through two different channels.

Oh, and here’s the best part…

CogniBiotics comes with a full ONE-YEAR guarantee, so I encourage you to try it risk-free and see for yourself how much better you feel.

This is an eye-opening podcast all about achieving your dreams and improve your life, just like Ben Williams did..

That's one of the things I like to focus on on this podcast. My background is in NLP and I'm always fascinated by how people find the motivation to succeed. I think it's a huge part of the energy jigsaw.

Ben Williams talks on his incredible story; struggling with drug addiction and battling suicidal thoughts, he turned his life around and joined the Royal Marine Commandos where he learnt valuable lessons about belonging, leadership and success. Now a performance and business coach who has worked with the England Football Team, Manchester United ladies and Wasps Rugby, Williams is sharing all he has learnt to help you achieve your dreams and improve your life, just like he did.

There’s never a bad time to boost your immune system. But I don’t need to tell you how important a strong immune system is right now, given the global health crisis that’s spreading across the planet.

P3OM are probiotics that improve your digestion and nutrient absorption, helping ensure your digestive tract and immune system stay strong and healthy.

While many other probiotics on the market don’t even survive your own stomach acid, P3OM is fully tested to make sure the probiotic strains not only survive in your body, but also don’t compete with each other -- so you're as protected as possible from the growth of bad bacteria and other pathogens.

So if you’re ready to boost your immune system, have healthier digestion and burn the fat, go to bioptimizers.com/zestology

Cate is the author of How to Work Without Losing Your Mind: A Realistic Guide to the Hell of Modern Work

One of her best tips, is all about making a boring list…

What does that actually mean? I’ll let her explain, by the end of the book, you’ll be making a boring list too.

There's also a great story in this podcast about Cate's partner. She met her husband on MySpace, remember that? And basically fell in love with him before they even met.

If you watched The Social Dilemma on Netflix, you will have watched Tim Kendall.

He was one of the stars of this popular and slightly chilling documentary, and his company can help us kick the phone habit.

He is the CEO of Moment, an app that helps adults and children use their phones in healthier ways.

So in 2021, are you ready to use your phone less?

Tim is the former President of Pinterest — at various points, he led product development, engineering, marketing and sales. Prior to Pinterest, Tim was Facebook’s Director of Monetization, where he led the development of Facebook’s advertising business. So he has worked on both sides of the social dilemma.

Happy new year! 

Me and Dr. Steve have got together to record a special podcast looking ahead to 2021, and let's hope it was better than last year. 

First rule of 2021. Never talk about 2020.

We're talking goals, outcomes, habits and the stuff we'd love to get done in 2021, and how best to do it.

Happy new year, and enjoy listening.

It's my Zestology Books Of The Year Show.

It's been an intense year, and my most effective way to switch off has been to read. There's been plenty of time to do that for sure, so here are my energising book recommendations based on what I've enjoyed this year. 

It's like a book awards, but a bit more informal.

The two categories are

  • Non-fiction health and personal improvement.
  • Fiction that makes you feel good, think and grow. 
Nov 23, 2020

It's episode 300 of Zestology... and that means I've been doing this about 6 years now. 

I suffered from complete burnout a few years ago, and spent a few months in bed unable to do anything much. I wish I’d had Fiona Agombar’s book back then.

I’m fully on board with her recommendations for mindful gentle healing, and I hope this podcast helps you to re-energise and recover.

A new workout regime to energise you:

I’ve been banging on about this for quite a while by now - I love Qi Gong. And the wonderful hayoufit, arronpersonaltrainer and katie_brindle managed to beat Tier 2 lockdown by a few hours and come and visit for a socially distanced Qi Gong In My Garden (cos that's the way I roll).

Why is a hybrid podcast. Because the first 15 minutes of our chat works perfectly for a podcast. And after that, you need to watch what happened here on instagram if you'd like to tap into the outside energy.

EMFs affecting our health is a really important area. We have so many powerful devices in our life now, and they can have a genuine impact on our health. Like the phone in your pocket right now!

The average four-year-old laughs as many as three hundred times per day. The average forty-year-old, by comparison, laughs three hundred times every two and a half months. Depressing? Yes. Coincidence? Definitely not

2020 has not been funny, but humour can get you through anything.

Naomi Bagdonas is that rare thing, a highly-qualified academic and also a comic. She, along with Jennifer Aaker, has written Humour, Seriously to help all of us – however long we have been lurking at the bottom of our own humour cliff – to bring laughter and levity into every aspect of our lives.

Their research has shown that laughing, quite simply, helps us be better humans.

I loved this. I've changed quite a bit after interviewing Naomi. You will too.

Donna Lancaster is remarkably happy for someone who has to deal with a lot of people processing grief.

She is a well-known life and relationship coach who specialises in the area of grief. 

And now, with lockdown, illness, a serious pandemic and everything we've had to deal with over the past year, she's helping people build resilience in these tough times. 

She owns and runs The Bridge Retreat which is a personal development experience here in the UK. It's described as an emotional detox and a chance to rediscover your zest for life. And yes, they are now running programs online too.

Healthy relationships are so important to your energy and wellbeing. Dr. Ramani Durvasula is a licensed clinical psychologist, professor of psychology and author specialising in narcissistic personality disorder.
 
And this is a must listen!
 
She is one of the wisest people you'll ever hear talk about this issue. 

“Narcissist” has become a buzzword we often hear. But do you really know how to spot them in your life? As this article says ' If you lean in too closely, a narcissist becomes an energy vampire, making a circus of your life—the kind that causes you to perform acrobatics in order to please them.

Here's how to look out for 'the charm, the gaslighting, the seduction, the injury, and the twisted truth'.

The intro to this podcast is recorded in the blue zone - that's where I am now, in the heart of longevity land. 

We then move to mastering the art of long-term thinking. We are addicted to the latest tweet and the ‘buy now’ button. How can we overcome this frenetic short-termism and extend our time horizons to tackle long-term challenges from the climate crisis to the threats of artificial intelligence?

Leading public philosopher Roman Krznaric is a brilliant Zestology guest, prepare to think, be challenged and inspired.

We are optimising sleep and circadian rhythms in today's podcast.

Greg Potter's PhD work on sleep, diet, and metabolic health has been featured all over the world, and Greg really knows his stuff. He’s big into looking at fasting, diet and using the rhythms of the day to enhance your health.

You may be surprised at the absolute best time to eat dinner, the research behind it, and how it might improve your heart rate, heart rate variability and sleep.

I've called this podcast Biohacking a Type A Personality, as I love talking to Angela, and we are both definitely... Type A personalities. Sometimes the most effective stuff for us lot is simply slowing down and doing less, but it's easier said than done. 

Angela is the Founder and CEO of My DNA Edge and we started by talking about one of the least affordable, but most enjoyable and effective hacks out there. The infrared sauna. Angela and I both love the Sunlighten Sauna, and remember if you mention Zestology to the guys at Sunlighten in the UK you’ll get 200 quid off. They’d also love to chat and they’ll explain exactly what’s going on with it all.

He had the Number 1 book in the world for 2 days, surpassing Hillary and Oprah. He's an NYT bestseller… and I love his work.

The end of Alzheimer's was groundbreaking, and Dr. Dale Bredesen has a new one out which may well change the way we think about Alzheimer's and cognitive decline forever. 

In this podcast we talk about the Apoe4 gene quite a bit. This is the gene that makes you more disposed to Alzheimers and I've got one variant of that gene, as do about a quarter of the population.

  • Fasting: 14 to 16 hours? What's good?  Do you allow coffee in that time?
  • Saturated fats, and my unhealthy breakfast.
  • Good fats and histamine intolerance.
  • Omega 3s.
  • What supplements?
  • Resveratrol. Is it really that good?
  • Heart Rate Variability
  • Oxygen saturation
  • And the wonders of chia seed pudding

Finally, we talk about a fascinating study.... it shows that where you live is a key determinant of whether you’ll reach age 100. A recent study indicates that neighborhood walkability, socioeconomic status, and a high percentage of working age population positively correspond with longevity.

CEO Mark Scott ate like a dog for one month. The results will surprise you!

He runs a healthy dog food company, and wanted to see what would happen when he ate human processed food for one month, then test to see what happened when he switched back to a healthy diet (that he feeds his dogs at Bella And Duke).

His company is wildly successful and this is a fun experiment, although I would not be able to eat rubbish for a month for any experiment!
