How to Adapt to Stress and Become Antifragile With Cold Thermogenesis, Ketosis and Fasting

January 18, 2018

There are 3 kind of things in the world

  • Fragile things break under pressure and stress
  • Resilient things resist the shock and stay the same
  • Antifragile things adapt to the stressor and get better

Our human body is incredibly adaptable to all kinds of stimuli both physical and mental. This ability is inherent to the success of our species.

 

Stress adaptation is a key characteristic to evolution and life - you need to be antifragile in order to adapt the changing environments. 

 

Unfortunately, our modern world is shielding us from these stressors and preventing our physiology from expressing its antifragility. Thus we become more fragile and more prone to breaking.

 

That's the topic of today's Body Mind Empowerment Podcast with your host Siim Land. Our guest is Cristi Vlad from Romania who's an author and a self-educated programmer about nutrition, deep learning, ketosis, intermittent fasting and much more.

 

We're going to talk about

  • How Cristi self-taught himself human physiology, genomics, and coding
  • What is antifragility and how does it relate to stress adaptation
  • How does one adapt to cold and other stressors
  • Is taking ice baths as dangerous for you as taking cyanide
  • How I'm currently doing the one meal a day diet while working out
  • What experiments has Cristi had with MCT oil and ketosis
  • How to raise awareness about your weight loss goals

 

And much more...

How to Stop Procrastinating and Overcome Resistance in 3 Steps

January 15, 2018

I can't stop procrastinating...Why do I procrastinate??? 

Sounds familiar? Of course, it does.

We've all experienced it...this impending feeling of Resistance and Procrastination

  • You're putting things off...
  • Doing them tomorrow - some day...
  • And you don't take action.

What's worse, you can feel procrastination eating you alive.

That's how you know you're procrastinating in the first place - you have this urge that says: 
"I should be doing this but there's something stopping me." 

If you're having that feeling right now, then I recommend you to go ahead and do it as soon as possible.
But if you don't know how where to start, then this episode of the Body Mind Empowerment Podcast is just for you.

I think of myself as a creative as well as a productive person - I write books, run a blog, make YouTube videos, and have this podcast.
So, it's safe to say, I'm very well acquainted with Resistance and Procrastination - we meet again... - but also knowing how to overcome them.

In this episode:

  • What's the root cause of procrastination
  • The invisible force that's haunting every human alive
  • Which is the number one ability for doing what you know you need to do
  • How to get things going
  • When to know that you've actually got somewhere
  • How I battled with procrastination while writing this
  • The 3 Steps to Overcoming Procrastination and Resistance

Body Mind Dualism, Consciousness and Meditation

January 8, 2018
Could you imagine a feeling nothingness – just complete stillness and emptiness?
  • You don’t feel anything particular that can be described as having an experience.
  • You’re not sad, not happy, not resentful, not motivated or inspired.
  • You’re simply there in the present moment with no thoughts running through your head, no future plans you’re going to do, no anxieties, no attachments – just it

What is this 'IT'?

 

What I’m talking about is the core essence of existence itself – what it’s like to be anything and to experience something.

 

IT'S CONSCIOUSNESS

 

There are many definitions as to what consciousness is, why do we possess it and how it expresses itself.

But no scientific consensus has been reached

 

That's the topic of today's Body Mind Empowerment Podcast. I'm Siim Land and I'm definitely not an expert in this topic. However, I've done some research and I'm confident in sharing some ideas. 

 

In this episode:

  • What is the essence of consciousness
  • What is the Body Mind Problem
  • Was Rene Descartes right?
  • The biggest bag that's pulled over your head
  • Are you living in the Matrix?

And much more...

Listen to This Before Setting Goals or New Year’s Resolutions

December 30, 2017

Another year, another milestone, another opportunity to reflect back on our growth and prepare for the next run for greatness.

Realize This: It doesn’t matter what day of the year it is.

You still have to show up to the greatest version of yourself day in and day out.
To keep making quality decisions in any situation and to continuously improve yourself.

Realize this as well: Do. Or do not. There is no 'TRY'

Realize that once you’ve decided to do something, to start something, to create something, then you either make it happen or you quit it. There’s no point in doing stuff that you’re not going to complete.

At the same time, you have to remain open to the possibility that you're doing the wrong thing and that you need to change your approach.

That's the topic of this Body Mind Empowerment Podcast with Siim Land. It's the last one for the year 2017!

Topics discussed:

  • The ONE THING you can always be sure of
  • Why you need to be careful with what you believe in

  • Are you insane in the head?
  • What's the difference between goals and systems?

#17 How to Optimize Your Sleep and Circadian Rhythms with the OURA Ring

December 25, 2017

"Sleep is for the weak and wicked! I'll sleep when I'm dead."

Well...with that kind of a mentality you're guaranteed to make it happen sooner than you think

Of course, building business, being an entrepreneur and hustling hard requires you to put in the effort and more often than not you have to sacrifice some sleep time

However, it's a huge misconception about sleep and being successful.
Sleep is one of the most important things for your health. In fact, it's more critical than nutrition or exercise.

You can get away with eating junk and not working out, but if you can't neglect sleep for too long

This is the topic of today's Body Mind Empowerment Podcast. Our guest is Petteri Lahtela the CEO of OURA Ring
The OURA ring is a cutting-edge sleep tracking device that measures your sleep cycles and stages.

Petteri and I talk about: 

  • What got Petteri into entrepreneurship
  • How does a CEO sleep per night
  • Sleep and circadian rhythms
  • How to improve sleep cycle quality
  • How does the OURA ring work
  • What improvements does the OURA ring 2 make
  • How your chronotype influences your sleep and health
  • The most important tips for improving your sleep

How to Stay Empowered During the Holidays

December 21, 2017

It's that time of the year again - the holidays - phenomenal. 

And with that come a lot of dinner parties, celebrations, and feasting.

Happy times! Merry Christmas! I love it...

It's the perfect opportunity to take advantage of a brief downtime to recollect yourself and reflect back on the year. This is the time of the year when most people take a step back from work and they focus more on compression. 

In this Body Mind Empowerment podcast, I'm playing you the recording of my Facebook live stream, in which I talk about how to stay empowered during the holidays.

Topics discussed:

  • How to still get some work done during Christmas
  • How to still stay consistent with your routines
  • How to still make progress on your goals
  • How to still eat healthy and exercise
  • How to still have a great time with your family
  • How to still rest and recover for the coming year

And much more...

P.S. One of the surest ways of getting back on track with your health and fitness is to try out the ketogenic diet because it's been shown to be extremely effective at burning fat while reducing inflammation.
 
Because it's the holidays, I've lowered the price of my Keto FIT Program from $89 to $69 for the coming weekend. After that, the price goes back to normal, so I recommend you to take advantage of this discount. Click Here to Get Your Discounted KETO FIT PROGRAM!

#16 The Warrior Diet, Intermittent Fasting and Stress Adaptation with Ori Hofmekler

December 17, 2017

Life is a process of stress adaptation.
Living organisms adapt to the conditions of their environment and those of natural selection.

Being able to adapt to stress has been one of the main driving forces of our success as a species.
We can eat a wide variety of foods, we can live in many different landscapes and we can become more resilient to these harsh conditions

Unfortunately, the modern world doesn't condition us the same way it used to, as there's a massive evolutionary time lag between our primal bodies and the abundance we're living in

"The stress that can kill you can also heal you", said Ori Hofmekler the author of The Warrior Diet and many other books
Ori Hofmekler intermittent fasting was one of the first IF practices in the modern health industry

I'm super excited to have Ori on the Body Mind Empowerment Podcast with Siim Land

We're going to talk about

  • What made Ori write The Warrior Diet
  • The 7 Principles of Stress
  • How the fitness industry is slowly killing people
  • The most powerful hormonal switches of your body
  • What are the biological mechanisms of stress adaptation
  • How to take advantage of stress rather than falling victim to stress
  • What are stress activated foods

And much more

To support this podcast, then I'd appreciate if you could leave us a review on iTunes and follow me on social media.

Here are the links to the podcast on all platforms

 
P.S. The main idea of this podcast is that stress in small amounts has incredible health benefits. Ori said that nutritional stress is one of the most powerful triggers for longevity and sexual vitality. Ketosis is one of the cornerstones for this. I highly recommend you to check out the KETO // IF program that combines the ketogenic diet with intermittent fasting.

#15 How to Make Quality Decisions ALWAYS

December 13, 2017

Decisions, Decisions...
So many decisions to make, so little time to make them...

Welcome to the Body Mind Empowerment podcast. I’m your host Siim Land.
Today I want to talk about making quality decisions because the quality of your decisions determine the results you’re going to get and how successful you’re going to be.

The most important thing I want you to remember right now and I’m going to repeat it later again is this - *sigh*

The quality of your decisions depends upon your level of awareness.

I started thinking about what determines your present state of consciousness and perspective and I came to the conclusion that it’s a 5 stage cycle that repeats itself and every step is connected to each other.

That's what we'll be talking in this episode

  • What determines quality decision making?
  • How to raise your awareness to make quality decisions most of the time?
  • What's the 5 stage decision-making cycle?
  • How to create quality systems for quality decision-making?
  • How to make good decisions on autopilot?

And much more...

To support this podcast, then I'd appreciate if you could leave us a review on iTunes and follow me on social media.

P.S. Are you struggling with implementing quality routines and systems into your life? How much money, time, and happiness are you loosing out on because of your loopholes? Well, one key component to this is accountability and guidance. I've opened up a few coaching slots for high performance. You can schedule your first free call using this link.
