Four Pillars of Sleep

Do you fall asleep while sitting in a waiting room, bored without any outside stimulus? Do you tend to nod off on long drives or while watching movies? Do you need an alarm in the morning to wake you up? These are three common signs that you could be sleep deprived. And just because you’ve slept 8 hours or went to bed at the right time doesn’t mean you’re not failing to meet your body’s sleeping requirements. In this post, I’ll be discussing the four pillars of sleep and how you can optimize each one for the best sleep of your life… Read More

Step 8: Setup Your Rich Life

In my journey to financial independence, I found Step 7: Strive to be Debt-Free was the hardest for me. With tens of thousands of dollars owed in student loans, it took me a long time and a lot of stress before I became debt free. But, once I finally completed that step, I was ready to stop throwing my money at loans, and to start throwing it at investments. This became and still is very exciting for me. With loans, I didn’t have many better financial options other than paying down the loans. Now that I had become debt free, I could do anything that I wanted with my money… Read More

Can You Turn It Down Please?

I’m that guy that wears hearing protection when he runs his blender. The guy who use to put in ear plugs when using an electric shaver. The guy who rarely uses headphones. The guy who wants to soundproof his bedroom. The guy that gets upset when loud cars go down the road and interrupt conversations. And the guy who stays away from the speakers at parties and speaking events. I’m a little weird. But, I’m protecting myself against a growing, “silent” killer. Noise pollution… Read More

Superfoods… Are They Super?

Watermelon seeds, acai berries, pine nuts, seaweed, maca powder and black garlic. These are just a few superfoods that have hit headlines within the past few years. Foods that are extremely nutrient dense. Exotic foods found around the world. Foods that have the ability to fight cancer, prevent heart disease, melt fat, increase energy levels and make you feel super.

Because we’re always looking for a shortcut, a “get rich quick” strategy, a new method to achieve quicker and better results. But, are superfoods really that super?… Read More

Step 7: Strive to be Debt-Free

I use to be in debt by over $100,000 which was mostly due to student loans (undergrad and graduate school). Back when I had that much debt, it was daunting and depressing. I was 22, owed $100,000 and only made about half that amount in salary. I knew I not only wasn’t going to have any money for the next 5+ years, but I also knew I was extremely limited. I wouldn’t be able to take advantage of any great opportunities that may arise. This burden even caused me to talk to my doctor about the mental toll it was taking on me. Fast forward 6 years and I’m debt free. All of my financial stress is gone. And I feel a sense of security and opportunity that I’ve never felt before.… Read More

Flexibility vs Mobility. Are You Prioritizing Either?

Most innovation starts at the highest levels. For example, the internet was invented by the military, Google was started by two researchers working on their PhDs at Stanford, and running shoes were developed by Olympic teams for top athletes. In one form or another, most innovations or trends start at the highest levels and will slowly make their way down to the average person. Because of this, I follow the training routines, nutritional guidelines, and recovery processes that professional athletes are using today to get an idea of what the average person will be doing in the years to come… Read More
