DeanBokhari.com • EP146. Flow: The Science-Backed Secret to Happiness

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

  • In this episode, we'll be talking about "Flow," which is a term that author Mihály Csíkszentmihályi uses to describe that feeling of total awesomeness you experience when you're so immersed in an activity (work or otherwise) that you lose track of time and feel like you could just keep on working on it forever because of the enjoyment it brings you to do the work itself. Most of us don't experience Flow as often as we'd like, and most people think it's just something that happens by way of luck. But it's not luck... There's actually a science-backed method to making Flow a part of your daily life, and you're about to learn it...

DeanBokhari.com • Muhammad Ali: The Psychology of Greatness.

Muhammad Ali was the only person I'd never met to pass (since Michael Jackson) that genuinely made me sad. With MJ, I was sad because I grew up on his music. With Muhammad Ali, I'm sad because, like millions of people around the world, I looked up to him. And I hoped to meet him one day. Unfortunately that obviously won't be happening. So, here's the best way I know of to commemorate his passing: Back in November 2015, I published an episode that detailed one of the most important contributors to Muhammad Ali's massively successful boxing career: his mindset... More specifically, his Growth-Mindset. I'm re-publishing this episode today to commemorate his passing, which was on June 4th 2016. Hope it inspires you to reach for greatness, just like Muhammad Ali did throughout his entire life.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

  • I'm no relationship counselor, but earlier this year the wifey + I came up with 11 things we think will help us maintain a happy relationship. We think they're awesome. Hopefully you will, too
  • At the beginning of every year, I like to sit down and do a year-end reflection of the previous year… I think about the wins, the challenges, the goals or areas of my life that I’d like to build upon as I move forward into another new year, and any new goals I’d like to pursue in the year ahead.

    One of the things that made this past yearly reflection especially enriching, was the inclusion of my wife, Amna and our newborn, Nora. (I’d always done my yearly reflection totally solo up until now.) So in addition to all of the stuff I usually do during my yearly reflection and goal-setting session, this year I worked on a list of ongoing relationship goals with Amna. We ended up with 11 in total. And we posted them up near our bathroom mirror, so we can glance at them every morning while we brush our teeth.

    As I write this, it’s been a little over a month since we started practicing these new ongoing goals (which are more like habits, or mutual commitments than goals). And I think they’ve been incredibly helpful in bringing us closer together as a couple and crushing conflicts before they arise. Here’s our list:[continue reading at http://www.meaningfulhq.com/happy-relationship.html]

MeaningfulHQ.com • EP114: Simplifying Success: "How Do I Get Motivated and Achieve My New Year's Resolutions With Simplicity?"

ABOUT THIS EPISODE: 

Q/A EPISODE: 

“Hello Dean, I’ve been binge-listening to your podcast for a few days and I’m loving your insights on productivity and meaningful work. My self-development question for you is on simplifying my way to success in the coming year. I want to adopt a simple yet effective system for achieving my goals and maintain my motivation to stay focused every day. But what I struggle with most is, that I can’t get myself to follow or stick with a complicated system like GTD. I know GTD works, but I really just want something simple. My question: If there was one single productivity tool you would recommend to get myself in order this coming year, what would it be?”

—(Question submitted by: Eileen E.)


In my 10 years of studying self-development material on topics like human motivation, productivity, and peak performance; I’ve only ever come across one single productivity tool that’s been reliable enough to recommend oner and over again…

The tool I’m talking about is

  • more flexible than anything I’ve come across,
  • is incredibly portable,
  • and it never—ever—runs out of batteries.

What’s this magical piece of productivity technology I’m speaking of?

Today I’m super-excited to introduce a new content line-up to the mix—and we’ll be calling it the FlashClass — Big ideas from popular books, condensed into actionable audio lessons, about 5-minutes in length.

Each FlashClass is …

  • designed to help you get more knowledge in less time
  • focuses on a single big idea from a popular business or self-help book from the getflashnotes.com library
  • made to make hard-to-grasp ideas easy and actionable

FlashClass: Protein Powder, The China Study, and Turning Cancer Off

  • Book: The China Study
  • Category: Health

Today’s FlashClass is inspired by The China Study, and it’s all about protein consumption…

In case you’ve never heard about the book, The China Study is the largest epidemiological study ever conducted. In a nutshell: 650,000 researchers catalogued and analyzed the death rates for 880 million Chinese citizens—96% of China’s population. Dr. Colin Campbell then, took the findings from the study, and wrote this book so that people everywhere could benefit from the findings… Especially those of us in the western world, who are amongst the un-healthiest people on the planet.

It also plays a factor in motivation, adaptation, and reaction to the environment. Excessive amounts of stress, however, may lead to bodily harm. Stress can increase the risk of strokes, heart attacks, ulcers, and mental illnesses such as depression.

Meaningful Show, Episode #66: Weight-Loss and Willpower:

Every week, there's a new weight loss pill or "proven method" to fat loss being peddled by some sketchy character in an Under Armour tank top. Maybe you've even fallen for their crap and pulled the trigger on whatever magic pill or piece of exercise equipmentthey had for sale at 2:00am on a Wednesday night.

This is NOT that.

In fact, it's the total opposite of a "magic" solution to weight loss... It's a *scientific* solution to weight loss.

Recently, I came across a pile of science-backed research on weight loss while I was reading a fascinating book called "Willpower". After sifting through hundreds of experiments about weight loss and willpower, here's what the authors recommend to anyone who's ready to start taking this whole weight loss thing seriously:

If you're serious about controlling your weight, you need the discipline to follow these three rules: 

#1. Never go on a diet.

#2. Never vow to give up chocolate or any other food. 

#3. Whether you're judging yourself or judging others, never equate being overweight with having weak willpower.


Here's some more food for thought from the authors of "Willpower":

"You may not have kept your resolution to lose ten pounds this year, but that doesn't mean you should take up a diet or swear off sweets. And you certainly shouldn't lose faith in your ability to accomplish other feats, because being overweight is not a telltale sign of weak willpower, even if most people think so..."

Yah wanna figure out how to stop binging on burgers, Big Gulps, and other fat-boy foods?

Listen in on today's episode of the podcast to find out about the research behind weight loss and willpower, and how to use it to your advantage in order to get that gut back in check, once and for all.

SHOW NOTES:

  • How to wake up early and workout: 7 simple steps to make waking up and working out a sustainable habit for life.

  • In previous episodes of the podcast — namely, Designing Your Morning Ritual, and How to Make New Year's Resolutions Stick — I’ve talked about how much I love waking up and working out. The reasons for this are many, including the research-driven data that shows how exercising in the morning actually gives us MORE energy, as opposed to the widely touted myth that working out early drains us of energy. 

    Again, the reverse is true -- though not for every one, at least for most of us -- not only does working out in the morning help us become more energetic, it can actually set a powerful series of events in motion to help you create more productive days, weeks, months, and years for yourself. 

  • The Endorphin Effect: If you wake up early and workout vigorously for a minimum of 45 minutes or more, then a naturally-produced chemical known as Endorphin begins to surge through your body, giving you a natural high (also known as “runner’s high). This chemical kicks into your body because it’s meant to mask the pain your putting your muscles through when you lift weights or do hard core cardio. (Side note: when you’re lifting weights, you’re basically ripping and tearing your muscle fibers… the reason why muscles actually grow in size isn’t because of the lifting of weights, it’s because of the eating of foods. When you tear up your muscle fibers in the gym, you need to put nutrition-dense foods back into your body in order to give them a reason to re-build… and if you want them to come back larger, it’s best to optimize your diet accordingly.)

  • The Dopamine Effect: Now, once you’ve gotten out of the gym, you probably feel really good about yourself for having gotten up early and workout out. This then, gives you small doses  of yet another naturally occurring chemical in your body, known as Dopamine, which gives you the feelings of positive reinforcement for having done a good job. 

  • As The Day Goes On: Now you’re in your car and headed to work feeling like a champion. You already know that no one else in your peer group got up as early as you did to workout, so that just makes you feel even better. Whether that’s right or wrong is neither here nor there — but for a lot of us, it *is* true.

  • If you add a little morning meditation into the mix, that’s even better. And if you add a little visualization and gratitude action on top of that — well, then, you’ll *really* be setting yourself up for a kick-ass day.

Okay, I get it. So how do I get myself to wake up early and workout? 

  • 1. Plan it out. Plan all your workouts BEFORE you step foot into the gym. Write it down, or get an app like Gym Buddy to keep you on track. Having plans and goals are crucial. Otherwise you’ll end up screwing around and leaving early.
  • 2. Picture yourself doing tomorrow’s workout today. One of the things I do every night before going to bed is to whip out my phone and go over my workout routine for the following morning real quick before calling it a night. I envision myself CRUSHING it in the gym. Performing every exercise and hitting new personal records for each of them. Yes, it helps. And yes, it makes a difference. Currently, I’m keeping my workouts in an Evernote checklist titled “Dean’s Training Program: Week 2”. The tools I use change from time to time, but the process doesn’t.
  • 3. Set it and forget it. Place your alarm clock far enough away from your bed that you must physically get out of bed in order to shut that thing off.
  • 4. Never hit the snooze button. “Just 5 more minutes” rarely ends up being just 5 minutes… Trust me, I know this from personal experience on more than one occasion. Do not let your mind trick your into hitting the snooze button. Avoid waking up two hours later and kicking yourself for missing a workout, and then allowing that guilt to have a negative impact on the rest of your entire day. It’s not worth it.
  • 5. Jump out of bed like a machine. Sometimes I wake up with such force that I scare my poor wife out of her beauty sleep. You don’t need to jump right out of bed, but you DO need to feel as if you wanted to. Be robotic with it. Wake up and go. Don’t think about how little you slept last night. Don’t think about how many things you need to do today. As soon as your alarm goes off, get your body out of your bed and get moving.
  • 6. Prep your pre-workout supplementation. I like to have a pre-workout drink before I go into the gym. And because it’s powdered, I put it in an empty shaker and place it next to my bed side table (right next to a bottled water) so that it’s ready to be consumed with my vitamins as soon as I get up in the morning. Wondering what I put in my pre workout drink? It varies, but it’s usually a powdered mix of caffeine, branch-chain amino acids, buffered creatine monohydrate, and arginine. But if you're looking for a set of all-in-one supplements that can give you a solid boost, without making you feel like an over-stimulated crack addict, I'd recommend Onnit Labs. They're an ethical company that produces high-grade supplements, with research-driven data to support their brands.
  • 7. Prepare your attire the night before. I go to sleep with my gym clothes on. But I’m a dude, so that’s usually just a pair of sweats and a tank top. If you can’t do that, then pick out exactly what you need to wear to the gym the next morning and have it ready to go. If you go straight work after your workout, then bring your toiletries and work clothes with you. Most gyms have lockers. Hopefully yours is clean.

Quick recap: 7 steps to wake up early and workout

  • 1. Plan it out
  • 2. Envision tomorrow's workout today
  • 3. Set it and forget it (place your alarm clock far enough away from the bed so that you've got to physically get out of bed to turn it off... then STAY out of bed :)
  • 4. NEVER hit the snooze button
  • 5. Be robotic with it. Jump out of bed like a machine
  • 6. Prepare your pre-workout supplementation for immediate consumption upon rising
  • 7. Prepare your pre and post workout attire the night before
