Week of August 31st – September 4th

Supplement: 

Turmeric (with black pepper)

For information on the benefits of Turmeric check out Authority Nutrition.

Why do I use it? The biggest reason is to fight inflammation from life’s stressors

Book: 

59 Seconds: Change Your Life in Under a Minute by Richard Wiseman

“Wiseman outlines the research supporting this new science of rapid change, and describes how these quick and quirky techniques can be incorporated into everyday life.” (Goodreads)

Immediate changes to your life and habits. Not another self-help book. It uses the research and science to dispel myths and give you actionable steps towards change.

TED Talk/Podcast:

Brené Brown TED Talk on Vulnerability

Tim Ferris Podcast with Brené Brown

From Tim Ferris at the 4 hour work week,

Dr. Brené Brown (@BreneBrown) is a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. Brené’s 2010 TEDx Houston talk, The Power of Vulnerability, has been viewed more than 20 million times and is one of the top five most viewed TED talks in the world.”

Brené Brown from her book Daring Greatly

“Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable, but they’re never weakness.”

Shoes:

New Balance Minimus

Eric Cressey over at Cressey Performance first introduced me to these through one of his articles and through watching his videos. They are GREAT training shoes for squatting, deadlifting, and overall movement. I’ve squatted 460lbs using these shoes. #humblebrag

They are also very flat (duh) so you’re not dealing with a lot of arch support. Plus, they are American Made (murica’).

I look for deals on Amazon. Since I wear a size 15 they seem to be on sale a lot. Bought 2 pairs last year for $100 total.

Music:

James Radcliffe (click the link for a sample listen)

Very smooth, easy listening music for relaxation, meditation, and walking. Try a Max Shank inspired 5 minute flow with this music.

This is inspired by Tim Ferriss’ 5 bullet Friday.
