    Dr Mark Hyman: Sleep deprivation = 1 pound increase per week

    Unlike most of the podcasts, Dr. Mark Hyman records 10-minutes podcasts and videos with bite-sized content on health. In this episode, 3 doctors discuss how stress influences our behaviour and decision making. We all know that. But here’s another reminder. They discuss that being deprived from sleep will cause impulsive decision making, which in its turn will make you crave carbs and…

    A path to optimal quality of life: meaningful relationships

    I’ve been unknowingly advocating this already. But after listening to Jay Shetty’s latest podcast with Robert Waldinger, I was relieved to objectively confirm that time with friends is definitely time well invested.  Waldinger, a Harvard professor, studied 724 men for 75 years and concluded that of course smoking is bad for health and exercise is good but what matters and contribute most to the overall…

    Lists: to follow/to healthy/to invest/to music

But here are some lists I think that might be useful/fun for you too: To IG follow For some genuine + positive+energy For female entrepreneurial inspo To…

    Alkaline to combat cancerous environments

    I’ve been listening to some Tony Robbins lately. The first time I learnt about “alkaline foods” was when it was coined by the “I’m-not-your-guru” guru – he was eating salmon salads for lunch every day that gave him mercury poisoning. He had to rebalance his diet afterwards and now swears by alkaline foods. The opposite of alkaline are acidic food groups. These are foods that harbour pathogens, unhealthy bacteria,…

    Moonwalking and memorizing names instead of the snack corner

    Am I the only one who introduces herself to 20 people at an event and afterwards will recall only one thing: the location of the snacks?  Thát plus not being able to recall faces is bad. It’s really bad. Edgar still makes fun of the fact I have introduced myself 3 times to the same friend of his over…

    Bone Broth: anti-ageing’s best-kept secret

    This week I introduce to you: bone broth. Some might know I had this EXTRA EXTRA colleague (Darren) who was the most extreme fitboy I ever witnessed (more fit than our regular Nike colleagues.. yeah brah). Next to Muay Thai, basketball and lifting, he was also super intense into his keto and carnivore diets and religiously drank his bone broth. This guy looked like…

    Dr Joe Dispenza on spirituality and down/upregulating your genes for success

    I never heard of Dr. Joe Dispenza but he describes himself as Researcher of epigenetics, quantum physics & neuroscience. That sounds smart. I’ll take it. This podcast/video is about how our choices influence our behaviours, that influence our experiences, that then create our emotions which have an impact on our hormones and eventually our genes. We think about how we act and how we feel,…
