Episode 366: Change Your Relationship With Stress

1 Simple Thing Action:
Perform “erasers” throughout the day. One of these erasers is to take 5-10 minutes throughout the day and sit in nature or look outside for 5 minutes without any electronic leashes (computer, phone, pager, etc.) Allow yourself to wander mentally. Research shows that 50 minutes of focus and 10 minutes of downtime is a great reset. Do this eraser technique several times throughout the day.

Episode 367: Say Goodbye to Distractions

1 Simple Thing Action:
Turn off pop-up emails and any notification alerts and sounds.

Episode 368: Your Brain Needs Sleep

1 Simple Thing Action:
Make the 30 minutes before you go to bed a “sacred zone” where you eliminate email, work, even screens of any kind.

Episode 369: How to Fuel Up Your Brain

1 Simple Thing Action:
Eat an apple a day with a slice of cheese. The choline and fructose will wake up your brain better than caffeine. Remember to feed your brain every 1 ½ to 2 hours with a handful of nuts or some complex carbohydrate.
