    Podcast Summary

    • Age is no hurdle for health and happiness.True well-being involves more than just physical health; it's about finding purpose, making choices that promote personal growth, and constantly seeking new experiences.

      Health and happiness at any age require a shift in perspective. Dr. Gladys McCarey, at 102 years old, emphasizes that true well-being encompasses mental, emotional, and spiritual elements. It's not just about following the right diet or taking supplements. It's about finding your purpose in life and making choices that contribute to your personal growth and the well-being of others. Dr. McCarey's own story, from overcoming heartbreak to dedicating her life to helping others, highlights the importance of always having a mission and constantly seeking new experiences. Age should never limit one's ability to live a fulfilling life, as long as there is a drive to make a difference and keep learning.

    • Reimagining Medicine: Bringing Back Heart and SpiritHealth and wellbeing go beyond symptom treatment and standardized plans. Embracing individuality, collaboration, and holistic approaches are essential for true healing and happiness.

      Medicine has become too reductionist and focused on simply treating symptoms with pharmaceuticals. Both Gladys McGarey and Rangan Chatterjee express the need to bring back the heart and spirit into medicine. They believe that health and wellbeing are not just about optimizing blood metrics or following a universal plan, but about living for something, embracing the lessons that diseases and pain teach us, and finding what works individually for each person. Instead of dictating what patients should do, they emphasize the importance of collaboration and empowering patients to take ownership of their healing process. By recognizing the interconnectedness of our humanity and the need for a holistic approach, we can truly strive for health and happiness at every age.

    • Evolving Doctor-Patient Relationship: From Dictation to CollaborationEmbracing a partnership-based approach in healthcare empowers patients and encourages them to understand themselves better, leading to improved outcomes and a more compassionate system.

      The traditional doctor-patient relationship is changing. Instead of doctors simply telling patients what to do, there is a shift towards a shared partnership. This approach involves conversations and exchange of ideas, allowing patients to become active participants in their own healing process. This change not only empowers patients but also encourages them to understand themselves better. Additionally, it is important to listen to children and pay attention to their questions and interests, as they may have a deeper understanding of their purpose or destiny. Embracing this evolving mindset in medicine can lead to better outcomes and a more inclusive and compassionate healthcare system.

    • Discovering our true purpose for a vibrant and purposeful life.Finding our purpose brings joy, motivation, and fulfillment, allowing us to make meaningful contributions to ourselves and others.

      Purpose or finding our "juice" is essential for living a fulfilling life. We often overlook the importance of having a sense of purpose and may feel stuck in jobs or routines that lack meaning. However, discovering our true purpose can bring about a sense of joy, motivation, and contribution to both ourselves and others. It is crucial to take the time to explore what truly resonates with us and brings us excitement and fulfillment. Whether it is through our curiosity, relationships, or acts of kindness, finding our purpose allows us to live a more vibrant and purposeful life.

    • The Power of Perspective: Finding Purpose and HappinessChoosing a positive perspective can transform challenging situations into opportunities for fulfillment and growth, but it's crucial to prioritize our own well-being alongside our sense of purpose.

      Our perspective and sense of purpose greatly impact our experience of life, as well as our health and happiness. We have the power to choose our perspective, even in challenging situations. For example, if someone feels stuck in a job they don't enjoy but need for financial stability, they can shift their perspective and see it as a means to provide for their family. Putting purpose into what we do can help eradicate resentment and bring a greater sense of fulfillment. However, it's important to balance our sense of purpose with our own well-being, as sacrificing our health and happiness for others may have long-term negative consequences.

    • Embracing our true humanity at any ageAge and cultural expectations do not define our purpose and fulfillment in life. We can shape our own paths, stay curious, and make a positive impact, regardless of our circumstances.

      Our purpose and fulfillment in life are not limited by age or cultural expectations. We have the power to shape our own paths and continue growing and learning no matter our circumstances. Gladys McGarey, at the age of 102, reminds us to embrace our true humanity and reach for the light within us. She challenges the negative narratives around aging and shows us that having plans and goals, no matter how old we are, keeps us curious and engaged with life. By prioritizing our health, understanding our cultural influences, and staying connected to our purpose, we can continue to make a positive impact and lead fulfilling lives at any stage.

    • The Importance of Having a Plan and Embracing ChangeProgress and personal growth are more important than achieving specific goals. Embrace change, take risks, and appreciate the present moment.

      Having a plan, whether it's a 10-year plan or any other timeframe, is important because it keeps us moving forward. The actual realization of the plan may not matter as much as the progress it provides. Retirement should not be seen as an end, but rather as a transition into something new and fulfilling. Trying to reach for something, even if we don't make it, is a righteous act because it shows that we are doing the right thing. The journey, with its "almosts" and failures, leads us to unexpected places and achievements. Moreover, the advancements in technology and the ability to connect with others across distances is mind-blowing and makes us appreciate the present moment even more.

    • Embracing Challenges: Finding Light in the Darkest MomentsIn times of darkness, adopting a positive mindset and viewing challenges as opportunities for growth can help us find hope and learn valuable lessons from every situation.

      Life's challenges are opportunities for growth and learning. Gladys McGarey shares her personal experience of going through a devastating divorce after 46 years of marriage. Despite being in a dark hole, she had a pivotal moment where she realized that she had to give it time for the message to come to her. She adopted the mantra "be glad" and found a glimmer of hope in the midst of her pain. This teaches us that even in our darkest moments, there is always light coming if we reach for it. Rangan Chatterjee adds that seeing everything in life as a teacher puts us in the driver's seat of our own lives, allowing us to learn and grow from every situation.

    • The Importance of Gut Health and Choosing the Right ProbioticsTaking care of our gut health through high-quality probiotics can positively impact our overall well-being, digestion, brain health, moods, and immune system. It is crucial to prioritize gut health and choose reliable and scientifically studied probiotics.

      Gut health is crucial for our overall well-being. The ecosystem of microorganisms living inside us plays a significant role in our digestion, brain health, moods, and immune system. When it comes to choosing probiotics, seed.com/live more is a trustworthy company with a commitment to high-quality research. They offer a 24 strain broad spectrum probiotic and prebiotic called DS O one, which has been clinically and scientifically studied for its benefits in digestive gut health and immune system support. Taking care of our gut health can have a profound impact on our daily lives and should not be overlooked. Additionally, it is important to recognize and overcome past experiences or beliefs that may hinder our ability to find our own voice and independence.

    • Embracing individuality and fostering a compassionate perspective on humanityFinding your voice and embracing your true self is possible at any age, and by focusing on the good in others, we can develop compassion and understanding in our relationships.

      Finding your voice and staying true to yourself is a lifelong journey. Many of us struggle with self-doubt and fear of judgment, preventing us from following our true path. But, as demonstrated by Gladys McGarey, age is not a limitation to finding your voice. At 93 years old, she discovered her true voice and embraced her individuality. Another important takeaway is that we are never truly alone. By choosing where we place our attention and focusing on the good in others, we can develop a sense of gratitude and understanding. Recognizing that people may do bad things, but it doesn't define their entire being, allows us to see the complexity of human nature. Rather than labeling people as "bad," we can acknowledge their actions as one aspect of their multifaceted personalities. This perspective offers a more compassionate and empathetic approach to our relationships and interactions with others. Ultimately, it's about accepting that everyone has the potential to reach their true humanity, and it's up to us to seek and appreciate that goodness within each person.

    • The Power of a Positive PerspectiveBy choosing to focus on the good in others and the world, we can improve our health and happiness, avoid negative outlooks, and cultivate a more fulfilling life.

      Choosing a positive perspective and focusing on the good in others can have a profound impact on our health and happiness. Rangan Chatterjee and Gladys McGarey discuss the importance of looking past our negative judgments and finding qualities to appreciate in even the most challenging people. By letting go of resentment and practicing forgiveness, we can avoid the detrimental effects of a negative outlook on our physical and mental well-being. Moreover, Gladys emphasizes the power of choice in shaping our perspective and taking control of our lives. By actively choosing to focus on the positives, we can cultivate a healthier and happier mindset. Ultimately, looking for the good in others and the world around us can lead to a longer and more fulfilling life.

    • The Power of Love in HealingLove has the ability to heal our bodies and minds. By loving ourselves and sharing love with others, we can experience true healing and guide ourselves towards a healthier and happier life.

      Love is the true healer. Gladys McGarey, with over eight decades of clinical experience, emphasizes the power of love in healing our bodies and minds. Whether it's a mother kissing her child's booboo or the essence of love itself, love has the ability to heal everything. To those feeling stuck in life and unable to see a way out, Gladys advises starting by loving oneself and understanding the essence of love. By focusing on what we love and sharing that with others, we can experience true healing and help others experience it too. So, let's embrace the power of love and let it guide us towards a healthier and happier life.

    #471  8 Hidden Habits To Live Your Healthiest, Happiest and Most Fulfilled Life with Robin Sharma

    Is it time to redefine what it means to live a rich life? In a world where we're constantly bombarded with images of material success, it's easy to fall into the trap of comparing ourselves to others and believing that more money means more happiness. But what if there's more to wealth than just money?

     

    What if the richest people aren't those with the most money but those with the most meaningful lives?

    This week, I'm thrilled to welcome Robin Sharma to my Feel Better Live More podcast. Robin is a globally respected humanitarian who has devoted over a quarter of a century to helping humans realise their native gifts. One of the top leadership and personal mastery experts in the world, he advises companies such as NASA, Nike, Microsoft, Starbucks, Yale University and the Young Presidents’ Organization. 

    He’s the author of several international bestsellers, including The 5AM Club and The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari. In his latest book, The Wealth Money Can’t Buy: The 8 Hidden Habits to Live Your Richest Life, Robin aims to change our perception to include not just financial success but seven other essential forms of wealth, too.

    In our conversation, we explore Robin’s concept of the ‘eight forms of wealth’, including physical and mental wellness, rich family relationships, fulfilling work and strong community connections. We discuss why traditional self-help approaches often fall short, particularly in the realm of personal growth and happiness, and how society’s obsession with hustle culture and toxic positivity has exacerbated the problem of burnout and dissatisfaction.

    Robin is perhaps best known for his thriving 5AM Club community and in this episode, he shares insights on the power of intentional morning routines, including his ​​five-question morning maximiser, and the value of continuous learning. We delve into practical strategies for implementing these principles in various life situations, even for those of us who have busy schedules or family responsibilities.

    We also touch on the importance of nature, disconnecting from technology, and finding moments to savour in our daily lives. We explore the value of service, small acts of kindness, and how we can all live our lives to the fullest.

    Robin’s perspective on what it truly means to live a rich life is a powerful reminder for us all and his approach offers a much-needed alternative to the endless pursuit of material success, showing us how to create a life that's ‘wealthy’ in all the ways that matter most. I hope you enjoy listening.

    #466 Break Free from Burnout: How to Accomplish More by Doing Less with Cal Newport

    #466 Break Free from Burnout: How to Accomplish More by Doing Less with Cal Newport

    In today's fast-paced world, the pursuit of productivity often leads to overwhelm. In fact, one report suggests that 88% of UK workers have experienced some degree of burnout over the past two years. But what if there’s a better way to work and live?

    This week, I’m delighted to welcome Cal Newport back to my Feel Better Live More podcast. Cal is a professor of computer science at Georgetown University and a founding member of the Center for Digital Ethics. He’s a New York Times bestselling author whose books have reached millions of readers in over forty languages. His latest book, Slow Productivity: The Lost Art of Accomplishment Without Burnout, challenges our current notions of work and offers a revolutionary approach to productivity.

    In our conversation, Cal and I explore the concept of "slow productivity" and how it contrasts with our culture of constant busyness. We discuss why traditional productivity methods are falling short, particularly in the realm of 'knowledge work' - a term Cal uses to describe intellectually demanding professions - and how modern digital tools have exacerbated the problem of burnout.

    During the conversation, he shares the three core principles of slow productivity: doing fewer things, working at a natural pace, and obsessing over quality. We delve into practical strategies for implementing these principles in various work environments, even for those who feel they have little autonomy in their jobs.

    We also touch on the importance of solitude and reflection in living an intentional life. Cal emphasises how smartphones and social media have impacted our ability to be present and socialise, particularly for younger generations, and he offers insights on setting boundaries with technology and creating healthier norms around its use, too.

    Our conversation also extends to the value of lifestyle-centric planning versus goal-centric planning, challenging cultural norms around constant connectivity and redefining success beyond professional achievements. 

    This episode is packed with actionable advice that can help you reclaim your time, reduce stress, and find a more balanced approach to work and life.

    #464 How To Use Food To Improve Your Mood, Overcome Anxiety and Protect Your Memory with Dr Georgia Ede

    #464 How To Use Food To Improve Your Mood, Overcome Anxiety and Protect Your Memory with Dr Georgia Ede

    Over one billion people worldwide have some type of mental health diagnosis - a statistic that suggests the current approach to treating these conditions may not be enough. For those struggling, perhaps despite their medication, it can feel easy to lose hope of feeling well again. 

    In this conversation, I speak to someone who has been a psychiatrist for more than 25 years and who for many years, felt that her impact on patients was limited until she learned about the incredible healing power of food. 

     

    Dr Georgia Ede is a Harvard trained, board certified psychiatrist specialising in nutritional and metabolic psychiatry. Her 25 years of clinical experience includes 12 years at Smith College and Harvard University Health Services, where she was the first person to offer students nutrition-based approaches as an alternative to psychiatric medication.

     

    She co-authored the first inpatient study of the ketogenic diet for treatment-resistant mental illness and is the author of the wonderful new book Change Your Diet, Change Your Mind: A Powerful Plan to Improve Mood, Overcome Anxiety and Protect Memory for a Lifetime of Optimal Mental Health.

     

    Georgia explains that, almost unknowingly, many of us have been feeding our brains improperly for our entire lives. We explore what she considers to be the five foods that have the most potential to be problematic for our brain health and how quickly we can start to feel the benefits if we are able to cut back on them. This highlights a key point that both Georgia and I are extremely passionate about - that, for most of us, in the modern day food environment, what we cut out of our diet is more important than what we put in.

     

    We talk about the relationship between blood glucose and brain glucose. Georgia outlines the whole foods that Georgia believes can be problematic, especially if we are having problems with our mood or have a mental health diagnosis. We also discuss why Georgia believes that the Mediterranean diet - whilst better than the Standard Western Diet is not optimal, and we cover Georgia’s clinical research about the potential benefits of ketogenic diets in treating mental health.

     

    Georgia is a wonderful physician who cares deeply about her patients and is helping many of them gain relief and sometimes remission from long standing mental health problems. That being said, there is no question that some of her recommendations may at first glance appear to controversial. 

     

    Throughout the conversation, I have tried my best to provide clarity and make sure that you clearly understand why Georgia is recommending the changes that she is. But, as you are listening, please do remember, that there is no one dietary approach that is going to work for everyone, at every stage in their life.

Loneliness is on the rise in many countries around the world and more people than ever before are feeling alone and isolated.

    In today’s episode of my Feel Better Live More podcast, I'm joined for the second time by Vice Admiral Vivek H. Murthy - the 21st Surgeon General of the United States. He received his bachelor’s degree from Harvard, his medical degree from the Yale School of Medicine, and his Masters in Business Administration from the Yale School of Management. In his role, Dr Murthy helps to advance the health and wellbeing of all Americans and has worked to address several critical public health issues.

    In our conversation, we discuss the growing epidemic of loneliness and its impact on our health. Vivek shares profound insights on the far-reaching consequences of loneliness, which extend beyond mental health to include physical health problems, including an increased risk of stroke, dementia, heart disease, and premature death.

     

    We delve into the root causes of the loneliness epidemic, exploring how fundamental shifts in technology and culture have altered the way we connect with others. Vivek emphasises the importance of taking social risks, building communication skills, taking regular social media breaks, the life changing benefits of volunteering, and he talks about the idea that simply dedicating just 10-15 minutes per day, to work out our social muscle will very quickly start to deepen our connections with the world around us.

    This thought-provoking conversation is for anyone looking to foster authentic connections in an increasingly disconnected world and deepen the relationships that matter most.

    Beginning –

    The family unit and societal conditioning that we’ve all been exposed to, whether helpful or unhelpful. Shedding the unhelpful layers to leave only the thoughts, habits, beliefs, etc that serve us well.Social conditioning generally leaves us in 1 of 2 boxes:
    • The person who falls in line, never questions and may “wake up” later in life realizing they never lived and don’t know who they are.
    • The rebel non conformist who gets looked at in a negative light.
    The view points on these 2 types are shifting to a more understanding model. We now know that the “troublemaker kid” probably isn’t trying to give everyone a hard time as much as they’re having a hard time and need some care, love and understanding.

    We’re all children parading around as adults with whatever belief systems were given to us as children. When you can see the separation between what was given to you versus what actually resonates with you, growth occurs and you can begin to “parent” yourself. Most often this means giving yourself that which you needed as a child but didn’t receive. This allows you to begin forming yourself into the happiest, highest version of yourself.

    12:40 –

    Dissecting what’s considered “trauma”. People understandably get a little touchy on this subject but the energetic point of view is that trauma is anything that goes against your original energy signature and causes harm to that field. If you walk away from the incident, no matter how minor, with a distorted energy field that takes you away from your true self, we’re considering it trauma.

    Obviously, varying degrees of trauma are possible. What is traumatic for one may not be for another and the time and work it takes to restore that energy field distortion depends on the level of impact it had on the particular person in question.The first step in healing any of it is awareness.

    Emotions become stuck in our body because when the situations that cause them occur, we don’t know how to experience that, process it and allow it to be released. Therefore it becomes stored for later. Emotions like anger or resentment are easier to feel than the pain behind them which leads us to hide behind them.

    16:16 –

    Nothing happened “to you”, it’s just what happened. Again, it’s normal to feel the more aggressive emotions and you HAVE to feel them in order to get to the other side of them and release them. It’s up to us to find healthy ways to release them so that we’re not hurting others along the way because that just perpetuates the cycles of pain.You have to get comfortable with feeling uncomfortable since problems occur when we suppress our emotions instead of allowing them to safely and productively play out.

    Some people can sit with something once, allow it to be felt and released and be done. Most of us have to hack at it little by little for a while because these things can get DEEPLY imbedded into who we are and touch every facet of our lives. Unraveling it layer by layer is something Monique equated to a spider web. A beautiful and fitting analogy for what we’re discussing.

    You have to systemize what works for you so that you know exactly what to do when you’re met with these emotionally charged situations and circumstances or else you’re always going to feel as though you’re drowning. These systems are your tools and can be as structured or as laid back as you like and as what works for you.

    34:27 –

    You want to avoid “toxic self care”. An example of this would be crawling into bed for a nap that lasts 3 days. You have to be self aware of these traps so that you can pull yourself out of them.

    Avoiding all stuck-ness because energy needs to MOVE. There’s a lot of ways you can get the energy moving, from food to taking a walk.

    Shadow work helps with empowerment a lot. We all have yin and yang energy. “Good” and “bad” are a human construct which can make us uncomfortable with the aspects of ourselves that may be labeled as “bad”. Coming to terms with these aspects can help us find empowerment through acceptance and love for even those parts of ourselves that others would have opinions about.

    41:02 –

    Empowerment is about finding what resonates with YOU despite the cultural taboos. What’s best for you and what works best for you and standing by that despite other’s opinions.Authenticity is ever evolving. You really only have yourself. Stay hyper aware. That’s the work. We’ll get there.

    1648 Grace and Glory!

    1648 Grace and Glory!

    Sometimes in life, taking a deep breath allows us to realize the grace and glory before us. You must slow down in order to speed up.

    Living life in the fast lane only goes fast for so long. At some point, a detour occurs, or worse yet, you run out of gas. No more fuel for your busyness or chaos.

    Desire to be supported and encourage by other like-minded women? Join us at Women of IMPACT. http://facebook.com/groups/thewomenofimpact

    So why do you keep trying to do the impossible?

    Remember that point where a detour occurs or you run out of gas? Well you don't want to get to that point at all.

    Because when you do, it comes with a cost.

    You see, everyone is searching for freedom. But we have to understand that there is a cost to everything in life.

    It doesn't matter if you are an infant, a second-grader, or the CEO of a top Fortune 100 Company. There is a cost to absolutely everything.

    Love has a cost. Success has a cost. Failure has a cost. Hope has a cost.

    But one thing that's forgotten is grace and glory.

    Grace is a gift. And the glory that comes from grace is given to God.

    So why do you keep running faster and faster?

    Your heart only becomes heavy and disheartened. You look for an escape, but the one thing still missing is grace and glory.

    "For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD will give grace and glory; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless. O LORD Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in you!" Psalm 84:11-12

    How much of your trust is being given to the wrong person or activity? Relying on another flawed human being is a recipe for disaster.

    Don't fret what you can't control.

    The K.I.S.S. ~ Grace and glory!

    A gift for you.

    And the awesome benefit is those whose walk is blameless, the good is present.

    God is there to protect and guard you. He is the sun and shield.

    So why are you putting your trust in outcomes you can't control?

    Why are you questioning what to do when God has already given you an answer?

    Grace and glory!

    One cannot be separated from the other. It a packaged deal in your every day.

    Think of it as Prime Day, every day! If Amazon can have an incredible deal, I promise God can top any prime deal.

    Instead of flying through your day haphazardly, put your trust in God. Don't back down because you don't have the answer you're looking for.

    Keep going through the doors God opens, and be grateful for the ones He closes. Life is a series of moments strung together to create your now.

    Yesterday is gone, and tomorrow isn't guaranteed. But you have today, so celebrate indeed. The opportunity to live, love, and impact are in your heart.

    Grace and glory!

    "Trust in the Lord with all your heart! God's got you!!"

    'ANOTHER GATHERING PLACE' - A sermon by Carlton D. Pearson

    'ANOTHER GATHERING PLACE' - A sermon by Carlton D. Pearson
    The sermon was delivered on Sunday, September 9, 2018, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Carlton D. Pearson, Affiliate Minister. DESCRIPTION Where are the places that gather people in meaningful ways? There’s a big difference between being in other people’s company and encountering people in ways that change us all. This weekend is both All Souls annual Homecoming Sunday and the opening of Tulsa’s new $460,000,000 “Gathering Place” park. All Souls is a gathering place for people of various backgrounds and beliefs. If you’ve taken the summer off this is the day to return to All Souls. If you haven’t seen someone at church for a while, please reach out and invite them to come. The choirs have some wonderful music planned and our youth group will be serving fajitas for lunch as a fundraiser. We will have tables on the lawn and in Emerson Hall to gather and eat. Come to a service and then perhaps head to checkout the new park afterward. *Musical solo by Majeste Pearson.
