227: The 3 Keys for Unleashing Momentum

How do you build up momentum?  Today, I want to talk about creating momentum in your learning and your life.  To become an unstoppable force where you don’t bounce back, you jump forward and create velocity. Because that’s what momentum is.  If you look up the word in physics, momentum equals mass times velocity. You are mass, and I want you to become the mass in motion. Because when you don’t have momentum, you’re stuck or held back.  An object in motion tends to stay in action, but an object at rest tends to remain at rest.  I’d like you to think about what area in your life would like to have more positive momentum towards your hopes and dreams.  Where would you like to be an unstoppable force, and how would you apply that momentum?  Listen in as I share the three keys for unleashing positive momentum.  *** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

176: The Art of Visualization

One of the most powerful tools we have is the ability to imagine and visualize.  Children naturally do this when they're learning rapidly about our vast world. As we "grow up," we stop doing this and rely on what we already know.  However, the ability to visualize is so important in every aspect of our lives because your mind cannot tell the difference between what's real and vividly imagined. In this session, I will teach you tools to be able to practice your visualization to shift your perception of what you want to create in your life.  *** Get instant access to the full 10-day Kwik Start program when you purchase a copy of my new book, Limitless.

172: 5 Things I'm Doing During COVID-19

What are 5 tangible things you can do during COVID-19? When thinking about how to look at self-isolation and social distancing in a positive light, the butterfly came to mind. The butterfly is a powerful symbol of change but more importantly, for self-transformation. They begin as a caterpillar and embark on an incredible journey, where through the process of metamorphosis, they transform into a butterfly. It's a powerful metaphor, speaking to our own ability to move through our life cycles. Right now, we're all in a metaphorical cocoon, safe and secure in our four walls. And within our cocoon, we face our own struggles. We know that through struggle comes strength and with challenge comes change. So while we're in this cocoon of our home, instead of feeding our fear, our doubts, our regrets, our loneliness, we have the opportunity to identify the thoughts that no longer serve us. Because the same level of thinking that got us where we are isn't going to get us where we need to go. To help with this transformation, I want to give you the FIVE things I'm doing while staying at home.  *** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

142: What You Should Know About Women's Brains

What should you know about women’s brains?  The historical conception that male brains are superior to female brains is finally being overturned—but while there is no difference in our intelligence, there are subtle structural differences in female brains that can heighten the risk of health conditions for women, including Alzheimer’s disease, migraines, and depression. Few people are aware of this, so raising awareness and helping people to feel more comfortable seeking assistance with these types of health concerns is incredibly important.  An international researcher in Alzheimer’s prevention, author of the incredible book Brain Food, and a nutrition expert and neuroscientist, today’s guest Lisa Mosconi has years of invaluable nutrition and neuroscience knowledge from a career spent working to prevent brain deterioration.  You can check out my previous episode with Lisa here: Episode 88: Eating For Your Brain with Dr. Lisa Mosconi  In this episode, we’ll explain the differences between female and male brains, including differences in hormones and health risks. We’ll explain some ways you can become more aware of women’s brain health, and explain what a typical brain scan might look like for a woman experiencing a decline in brain health. Finally, we’ll tell you why you should take care of yourself in the busiest decades of your life, and why you (or the women in your life) should never be ashamed of seeking out health treatment.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

138: Discovering Your Dominant Question

The process of thinking is nothing but asking and answering questions. Our thinking changes the shape of our lives, so the questions we ask ourselves matter, whether it’s “how can I learn this?” or “how can I get healthier?” We’re asking ourselves questions all the time, but we’re often not conscious of them and how they impact our behavior.

136: How to Have Mental Longevity

114: How to Undo Your Limiting Beliefs

How do you overcome and change limiting beliefs? All behavior is belief driven. You can’t remember someone’s name if you believe you have a horrible memory. You can’t be a great reader or leader if you believe you are not. Or change procrastination if you believe you procrastinate. So how do you deal with the more deeper invisible level of beliefs? In today’s episode, I have my longtime dear friend, Shelly Lefkoe, with us to discover how we can change the deep underlying beliefs about ourselves. Shelly Lefkoe is co-founder and President of the Lefkoe Institute, and the founder and Parenting the Lefkoeway. She has personally worked with thousands of individuals from around the world.

112: Mindful Leadership with Presidential Candidate - Tim Ryan

How do you become a more mindful leader? Whether you’re a student, parent or entrepreneur, how do you lead yourself and how do you lead others for a place of mindful connection and development? Representative Tim Ryan recently announced his run for president and has a long history representing working-class families in Ohio. What you might not know about Tim is that in addition to his service as a Congressman, Tim is an advocate for mindfulness, meditation, and health and is the author of two books on mindfulness and healthy food. Mindfulness and leadership are two of the most important words today. We’re living through fractured, disrupted times and calm thoughtful leaders will be essential in guiding communities back toward connectedness, imagination, and change. Unless we learn to reconnect with each other and work together, we will remain unable to solve the many problems facing us.   In this conversation, we discuss how mindfulness impacts our brains, and how adverse experiences impact the minds of younger generations coming up through our schools. We speak about how mindfulness has given the best leaders the strength to lead and maintain calm through challenging times and find the imagination to lead the country out of a challenge and towards change. Lastly, we talk about why social connectedness is so important in today’s fractured society and why the world needs you to take all the self-work you’ve been doing and start passing it on to your community. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

Today's question for the Kwik Brain community is: how do you overcome math anxiety to the point that you can improve your finances?

104: How to Light Up Your Brain with Wes Pfiffner

Our bodies absorb light and use it as fuel for our bodies, but few of us have been taught about how to harness the power of light to boost our health and happiness.  Our natural environment deeply affects our bodies—our circadian rhythms are affected by sunlight and increasingly, negatively affected by the blue light so many of us spend hours looking at in the form of laptops and phones. This is problematic because of circadian rhythms regulate our body—telling us when to eat, sleep and produce hormones. We’ve talked a lot on the Kwik Brain podcast about the power of sleep for our brains, so this is an important issue to be aware of if we want to get the most out of our minds! The Joovv red light therapy device is something I use on a daily basis to ensure I jump start my circadian rhythms and get enough light each day. Today’s guest, Wes Pfiffner, is one of the directors of the company, and he’s here to tell us how impactful red light therapy can be for our bodies and brains. In this episode, we explain the benefits of light therapy, why being conscious of our circadian rhythms is so important, and why we need to watch our usage of blue light. To finish, Wes will give you some quick and simple to harness the power of light in your everyday life. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

101: 4 Keys to Changing Your Behavior & Habits

How do you create change that lasts? If you want a new result in your life, you have to do a new behavior. To change that behavior, you need a set of capacities, capabilities, and beliefs. If you want something you’ve never had, then you’ve got to do something you’ve never done. They say an average person has about 60,000-70,000 thoughts a day, but the problem is that 90-95% of those thoughts are the same thoughts they had yesterday and the day before that. In other words, if you want to do something brand new, you have to stop doing the same thing. In this episode, I will share 4 keys to turn your “I wish” to “I will,” and make real changes in your behavior and habits. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

85: How to Activate Your Multi-Sensory Learning

How do you become a multi-sensory learner? You may be asking, “what is a multi-sensory learner? Is it going to help me with my focus? Is it going to help me retain information better? Is it going to make me a creative thinker?” And my answer is astounding, YES. Multi-sensory learning is the idea that individuals learn better if you were taught using more than one of your senses. When it comes to learning, the more senses you stimulate, the more you’re able to learn and attain new knowledge. In this episode, I’m going to share with you different learning styles and how you can apply them into remembering abstract concepts like numbers. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

84: How to Release Happy Brain Chemicals with Radha Agrawal

How do we release happy brain chemicals and not feel loneliness   Studies are indicating that loneliness leads to Alzheimer, dementia, and other mental challenges. Even though we’re more connected than ever before via social media, the level of loneliness people feel have been arising.   To dive deeper into this topic, I have my good friend, Radha Agrawal, in the studio today!   Radha is a community force, successful entrepreneur (Co-Founder THINX, LiveItUp), author, globe-trotting speaker, DJ, inventor, and investor.   Her new book BELONG answers the questions, "how the heck do I find my people?" and "How do I create large and meaningful communities in the real world?". She spent 18 months synthesizing her key methods for community building, peeling back the curtain on exactly what she and her team did (and continues to do) at Daybreaker so that anyone interested in creating their community could have a blueprint for how to do it.   Enjoy!   ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

82: Workouts That Boost Your Brainpower with Shawn Stevenson

So many of us work on our physical health—whether that means going to the gym or for a run—without being aware of the brain health benefits we’re receiving. I’m excited to welcome back today’s guest Shawn Stevenson—founder of the Model Health Show Podcast and health expert—to tell us how we can boost our brain potential through quick and simple physical exercises.    Physical training is a powerful way to boost your brainpower and creativity. Simple exercises like push-ups, squats, daily walk, and sprints can help you improve so many aspects of your overall wellbeing and brain function, from sleep to creativity and brain cell production. There’s a lot of confusion out there about strength training, but the truth is that after years of evolution our body needs and expects us to work hard and lift heavy things—and it doesn’t have to mean complicated hours of workouts at the gym!    Regardless of our age and ability, we can train to prevent our physical and mental muscles from atrophying. In the process, we can improve our mental strength, resilience, sleep, mood and cardiovascular health, among countless other health benefits. If you’re looking for a simple and effective plan to improve your body and brain health, today’s podcast is for you.    In this episode, we’ll explain the benefits of strength training and how it is connected to a happier, healthier brain. We’ll walk you through some quick exercises you can incorporate into your day, and explain how your sleep, productivity, and creativity can be improved in a few minutes a day. We’ll also be doing a deep dive into the top four exercises you can start doing today to boost the health of your mind and brain!    ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

81: Remembering Numbers Instantly

Welcome back, Kwik Brain! In this episode, I’m going share with the secrets to mastering and remembering numbers.   Numbers are everywhere. It’s like a universal language. Telephone numbers, credit cards numbers, zip codes, PINs, passcodes, birthdays, it’s everywhere.   But here’s the challenge. A lot of people have difficulty remembering numbers. Think about something simple like phone numbers and how many phone number you used to be able to remember like 10-15 years ago before we had smartphones.   Now, we’re outsourcing our brains to technology. Granted, why would you want to remember dozen and hundreds of random numbers like phone numbers when you can put into your smartphones?   But have you’ve ever needed to memorize and hold that information in your working memory?   The brain is like a muscle. It grows stronger with use. A lot of us have this flabby “remembering-numbers” muscle.   So if you’ve been feeling your memory is not as strong as it used to be, you can follow along in this episode to get a great mental workout as I give you several tools to remember numbers.   ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

Meditation is a simple path to a healthier, more productive life. I’m excited about today’s conversation with guest Ariel Garten—founder of MUSE, scientist, and expert on mindfulness and entrepreneurship—who is here to tell us how meditating for just a few minutes a day can change our relationship with our brain.    Whether you’re an entrepreneur, an office worker or a parent, learning to be present is how you’ll get the most from your day. By learning how to meditate, you’ll be able to increase the amount of time you spend being truly present in the now. There’s a lot of confusion out there about meditation, but meditation is simply an easy practice we can all do to make our mind better!    Stressful thoughts can lead to a rollercoaster ride of emotions that dictate our behaviors, but we can break this cycle by learning to build a better relationship with our brain. Meditating for just a few minutes a day can teach us to be aware of our thoughts and reign our emotions in when we need to—we can learn to experience emotions as a sensation that will quickly pass, and control our thinking!    In this episode, we’ll give you some great basic information about mediation, explain the difference between meditation and mindfulness, and walk you through a quick exercise to get started. We’ll cover how to integrate meditation into your everyday life, explain why meditation is vital to improving your performance and your health, and hear how Ariel is revolutionizing meditation with her MUSE device.    ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

79: Imagination for Courage, Creativity & Change with Beth Comstock

Today’s podcast is all about the power of imagination—and we welcome special guest Beth Comstock! As the pace of change increases exponentially, we’re all going to be searching for ways to solve problems we’ve never had before. Today’s guest Beth Comstock—one of America’s most successful businesswomen, author, and a previous leader of innovative change in her role as Vice Chair at GE—is here to tell us why our imagination and creativity are powerful and essential tools to build a new future for ourselves.  Fear can hold us back from making the most of our imagination, as can an unhealthy attachment to safe, familiar routes. So many people don’t take that first step towards making the idea they have in their heads a reality because they’re afraid they won’t be perfect or successful. But as Beth tells us, embracing uncertainty and learning as you go is the only way to move towards growth and success.  In this episode, we’ll explain why imagination, creativity and white space are so important, and why creativity isn’t just something to be done in your free time. We’ll discuss why so many people don’t use their imagination to its full potential, how to cultivate imagination and the importance of vision and story in achieving your goals for a brighter future.

And have you found that the busier you are, the more mistakes you’re likely to make? Maybe you’ve hurt someone’s feelings by saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. Or left the water running and flooded your home, or fumbled the presentation in a meeting, or maybe you lost a client.

71: How to be Unforgettable with Jordan Harbinger

A social dynamics expert and podcast host, today’s guest Jordan Harbinger has years of experience coaching clients to navigate interpersonal relationships and build on their connections. The way we communicate with others on a daily basis contributes over time not just to our personal brand, but the circles of connections we have. Small, thoughtful messages sent daily can completely change the shape of your networks and build relationships with everyone from distant acquaintances to close family — before you even need to rely on them.  In today’s world many of us have learnt to engage solely on social media — think lazily clicking a heart to respond to news from a friend along with hundreds of others rather than picking up the phone to congratulate them — and we are missing out on all the benefits that come with properly nurturing our connections and relationships.  In today’s conversation, we’re going to talk about the best ways to nurture better relationships and ensure you are unforgettable to other people. We’ll give you some practical tips on sending thoughtful messages to others. We’ll leave you with some ideas for re-engaging with your contacts, quickly generating rapport in social situations, and becoming a better listener.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

This week’s podcast is all about the best productivity tools— and we welcome back special guest Ari Meisel!  Modern life is so busy that we all feel like we’re constantly hustling yet still falling behind. We all want more resources and advantage. And we especially want to know the secrets of how to use our minds better to become more productive.  A productivity expert, CEO and best-selling author who has built his career on teaching others how to work smarter—not harder—today’s guest Ari Meisel is here to tell us how we can all learn to be more effective in our daily lives and free up time for the more important things in life.  So many of us have been taught that being productive is all-important, but the truth is that we should be thinking about how we can be more effective—that is, learning how to do more with the resources we already have, rather than burning out trying to produce more. Innovation never comes from having too many resources—it comes from restricting your resources, thinking innovatively about effectiveness and asking yourself: what’s a better way to do this?  In this conversation we talk about the best productivity tools to amplify your effectiveness and save you precious time—we’ve included links in our show notes to the various tools Ari mentions. We talk about the essential steps to becoming more effective—managing your communication, project management, and processes to streamline your operations and increase your productivity.  ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

69: Activating Your Second Brain with Naveen Jain

This week’s podcast is all about activating your second brain— and we welcome back special guest Naveen Jain!  Just how important is our second brain—our gut? How much does our gut influence our mind? How important is our gut to our health? Why are we spending trillions on healthcare only for many of us to get sicker? Are our genes our destiny?  An international leader in industry disruption and founder of groundbreaking companies such as Viome and Moon Express, today’s guest Naveen Jain has built his career on thinking big, with years of experience applying exponential thinking to a variety of industries, including the healthcare industry.  Our gut is one of the most crucial determinants of our health. If something goes wrong in the gut, it can affect our thinking, decision-making, and risk of disease. Modern living and new chemicals are penetrating our gut lining, meaning that our body is dealing with foreign bodies never before seen—and this is resulting in heightened rates of inflammation and illness despite our ever-rising rates of investment in healthcare.  In today’s conversation, we talk about why you should trust your gut, explain how much control our gut has over our bodies, and explain why genes are not our destiny. We’ll cover the diseases chronic inflammation has been linked with—think everything from Alzheimer's to depression—and leave you with some ideas to increase your knowledge of your health.  Learn more about Naveen’s company Viome: https://www.viome.com/kwik * Please note, this episode is educational only and not intended to diagnose or treat medical conditions. Please consult your healthcare provider if you have any questions or concerns. ** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

66: When To Eat For Optimal Brain Function with Max Lugavere

In previous episodes, we’ve talked about brain superfoods and what we should be eating to power a healthier, happier brain. Today’s show takes the conversation a step further as we talk about when we should be eating, and how fasting can impact our longevity and brain health.    A common question from the Kwik Brain community has been how we can improve our brain functionality through nutrition and diet. A respected health and science journalist and author of a best-selling book on diet and brain health, today’s guest Max Lugavere has years of health and diet research experience to give you the best advice on improving your brain function through nutrition.    The food we eat matters to our grey matter. When and what we eat can affect our memory, our thinking, our lifespan and our happiness. In today’s world, many of us are chronically eating, which is creating ongoing impacts and stresses on our bodies and brains — this makes sense if you consider we evolved as hunter-gatherers, eating only when we were able to find adequate food.   In today’s conversation we talk about some key nutrients for healthy brain cells, cover Max’s list of top genius foods you should be eating on a daily basis, provide a framework to guide when you eat and explain the effect of fasting on your mental state and metabolism. We’ll explain what current research is saying about fasting, and how you can improve your health through connectedness.    *Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

An accomplished manual therapist and movement coach, today’s guest Aaron Alexander has over a decade of experience coaching clients from Olympic athletes to Hollywood actors to improve their health and streamline their daily movements.  The way we move has lasting impacts on our health and longevity. Our posture and daily movements affect our thinking, our happiness, and our general health. In today’s world many of us have learnt to separate our bodies and brains and sacrifice our physical health for the sake of convenience — think taking the elevator instead of the stairs, or jumping in the car for a trip of a couple of blocks — and this is resulting in heightened rates of physical illness and depression despite our ever-rising rates of affluence.  In today’s conversation, we talk about the best ways to sit for a healthier body, explain the brain-body connection, and discuss the effect of posture on your mental state. We’ll give you some practical tips to turn your everyday tasks into the body and brain-boosting missions and ideas for best breathing practices.

But it’s not necessarily a trait people are born with. The good news is that it involves behavior, thoughts, habits, mindset, and actions that we can all learn and develop over time. To answer this important topic, I want to introduce you to Tara Mackey. She is a scientist, a #1 bestselling author of “Cured By Nature,” a health & wellness advocate, and an amazing human being. Her story is absolutely incredible. Listen in as she shares her techniques to unlock your mind and master your habits so you can be more resilient throughout your day. Be sure to check out her brand new book, “Wild Habits,” at www.wildhabitsbook.com and you can find her @taraamackey on socials. *Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

59: Exponential Thinking with Naveen Jain

The more you learn, the more dots you can connect. How do you become an exponential thinker? What does it mean to be an exponential thinker or a really BIG thinker? We talk a lot about how our life is a reflection of our thinking. This is the millennium of the mind. We get paid to think. It’s not our brute strength, but brain strength. I’m very honored to bring my friend, Naveen Jain, on this episode to share with you some of the ideas to becoming an exponential thinker. He is a very successful entrepreneur, philanthropist, and created a number of businesses including, Moon Express, the only company in the world given permission to leave Earth’s orbit and land on the moon.

58: Burnout To Balance

How do you go from burnout to balance? Most of us have days where we feel depleted, helpless, overloaded, where you don’t want to get out of bed, and much less pursue your dreams. But what if you’re feeling like this on most days? Then you might be suffering from a burnout. Our bodies and brains are equipped to handle stress in short bursts, but not over long extended periods of time. The impact of burnout is very real. Lack of motivation, decrease in confidence and performance, increased moodiness, negative thinking, all of which lower the quality of life you desire and deserve. But this burnout is a signal, not a sentence. So in this episode, I would like to talk about the signs of burnout AND the solutions you can apply to negate them. *Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?

57: Protect Your Brain From EMFs with Dr. Mercola

“Do EMFs harm your brain?” I get a lot of questions about learning, brain health, and etc. in our private fb group, and I came a crossed this question we haven’t addressed yet. I know it’s hard to imagine living in a world without your smartphones and computers, but what does living in a sea of electronics do to our brains? I was recently at an anti-aging conference where I shared the stage with Dr. Joseph Mercola, who can offer very strong advice in this area so I took the opportunity to ask him some questions about EMFs and the effect it has on the brain. In this episode, Dr. Mercola will share tools and strategies you can use to protect yourself and your family from possible harmful effects of EMFs. Dr. Mercola is a multiple New York Times Bestselling Author, and his website www.Mercola.com is one of the world’s leading natural health website with millions of monthly visitors. This interview is not intended as medical advice. Please do your research and talk to your healthcare practitioner for any questions you may have.

56: How To Keep Your Brain Ageless

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? The fountain of youth is found between your ears. In this episode, I would like to talk about brain tips based on Dr. Daniel Amen’s book, “Use Your Brain to Change Your Age.” We all want a brain that’s healthy and agile. In this book, I dedicated a chapter on lifelong learning and how to use that to keep your brain young, agile, and adaptable. We can keep our brain young by developing new connection through novelty and nutrition. And in this episode, I want to talk about some of the exercises you can do to create more connections in your brain.  20 Tips to help you become a lifelong learner: Find your motivation to learn something new. Read books, not just articles and emails. Turn your car into University on wheels. Stop telling yourself you have a poor memory. Don’t let school get in the way of your education. Use your creativity to memorize a list. Remember names. Use a visual pacer to read. Sharpen your brain during leisure time. Try something new. Teach to someone else. Take notes. Be curious. Ask yourself, “How am I smart?” Find your learning style.. Don’t stop challenging your brain. Meditate. Boost your pre-frontal cortex by setting goals. Boost your brain’s flexibility by reflecting. Get enough rest. You can pick 2 or 3 new activities from this list to add to your day. Which ones are you going to incorporate? Cheers to your ageless brain!
