Attributes are wired into your internal circuitry, always running in the background, says Rich Diviney. You're born with attributes. They're elemental and considered innate traits—not to be confused with personality traits.Rich, a retired Navy SEAL commander, bestselling author, and leadership and human performance expert, explains how attributes determine how you absorb, process, and respond to the world around you. By knowing this, you'll be able to assess your own attributes and put them into action with SMART steps.In his book, “The Attributes: 25 Hidden Drivers of Optimal Performance,” Rich shows you how mindset, optimism and becoming uniquely resilient to stress can help you become a better human. His approach identifies core attributes needed for success in personal or professional tasks.His ability to choose the right people to be in elite performance groups—like the U.S. Navy SEALs—could be considered a superpower. As the officer in charge of training for a specialized command, Rich was part of the SEAL selection process. He pared down a group of exceptional candidates to a small cadre of the most elite optimal performers. How did he do it? By looking at attributes.It's Rich's belief that SEALs are not born extraordinary. Instead, they've mastered their own mindset to get the most out of their innate abilities to make themselves extraordinary. He believes we all have the power to do this.In “The Attributes,” you'll find examples of attributes within five distinct categories plus a couple more that don't fit so neatly: Grit, Mental Acuity, Drive, Leadership and Teamability. So, what are attributes and how are they different than skills? “A lot of times we get seduced by skills, and we don't think about attributes,” Rich says. “And the reason is very simple: skills are not inherent to our nature. They're very visible, which means they're very easy to assess, measure and test and you can put scores around them and stats around them. … Attributes are inherent to our nature. We're all born with levels of adaptability and situational awareness and resilience. Attributes don't dictate our behavior or director behavior; they inform our behavior.” See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    Upgrade Spotlight: Find Your Footing in Minimalist Footwear – Xero Shoes : 935

    IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™... …you're listening to a new Upgrade Spotlight series based on what you told me you wanted to hear on this podcast. On one Friday each month, these shorter episodes will feature guests who'll get right into useful information in a Q&A style. You'll find out how to improve your energy and upgrade your performance. You'll also get the latest knowledge about powerful tools and technologies that allow you to change your biology and the environment around you. Introducing Xero Shoes! During this Upgrade Spotlight, you'll learn how minimalist footwear reduces injury, improves foot strength and supports healthy feet. You'll learn that getting grounded is a good thing.Today's guest—serial entrepreneur Steven Sashen—is a competitive sprinter. He knows the mechanics of human feet. He also knows what it feels like to move in shoes that suck. So, he and his wife, Lena Phoenix, founded the footwear company Xero Shoes. They ran headlong into shoe history and shoe science to intentionally create “a MOVEMENT movement” of people with happy, healthy, strong feet in addictively comfortable footwear. “A quarter of the bones and joints of your whole body are in your feet and ankles,” Steven says. “They're supposed to bend and move and flex just like any other joint. If you're wearing shoes that don't let them do that, that function tries unsuccessfully to move into your ankle, your knee, your hip and your back joints. Those joints aren't built for those micro motions that keep you balanced, that give you agility and mobility.”Your feet, and by design the rest of your body, know something's off with cushioned shoes. So does Steven.“The value of natural movement, the importance of foot health, and all the things that relate to foot health got me going,” he says. “But what really catalyzed it was discovering that what the footwear industry has been doing for 50 years is lying to people– selling people on ideas that they know don't work, but they can't pull back. They can't tell a different story, because they've been promoting this story for so long about arch support, motion control, padding, cushioning, etc.” Research published by the American College of Sports Medicine in 2021, “Stepping Back to Minimal Footwear: Applications Across the Lifespan," showed that minimal footwear leads to improved musculoskeletal health across your lifetime. “It's all about natural motion,” Steven explains. “Our ancestors didn't have a problem being on their feet all day, every day. It wasn't because they're different from us, it was just that they got used to using their feet correctly. We can still do that any day, anytime, any of age.”CHECK OUT XERO SHOES and the 5,000-MILE SOLE WARRANTY!

Fatigue is a hidden epidemic, with chronic fatigue syndrome being the most severe end, but most people (in the U.S.) are experiencing some level of being flat-out tired as hell.Guest Ari Whitten, Ph.D. (Cand.), CES, PES, says that as a culture, we have normalized fatigue. In his newest book, “EAT FOR ENERGY: How to Beat Fatigue, Supercharge Your Mitochondria, and Unlock All-Day Energy,” he explains that 5.4 million adults in the U.S. have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome (the most severe case of fatigue). However, the true fatigue epidemic affects 50 to 100 times more people.This episode's discussion gets right into the role of mitochondria in human energy. Ari's research (420 citations in “Eat for Energy”!] is clear. The cause of fatigue is mitochondrial dysfunction, he says. And the biggest factors that affect your mitochondria include:Circadian rhythm dysregulation and poor sleep Carrying too much body fat and too little muscle mass Poor gut and microbiome health Blood sugar dysregulation Nutritional toxicities and deficiencies Neurotransmitter and hormone imbalances So what can you do to increase your energy currency? A lot, as it turns out. When you understand factors like resilience, cell defense, nutrition and supplementation, you're on your way to better energy. In this conversation, you'll learn:what's causing the dysfunction in your mitochondria and how you can repair these critical energy cells. strategies that will double your energy levels. 7 top supplements (and more) that help get your mitochondria back on the energy track. Ari has been studying and teaching natural health science for more than 25 years. He went through his own battle with chronic fatigue that inspired his obsession with energy. For the past seven years, he's focused specifically on improving human energy. His education and work in this area touches on critical aspects of human health from nutrition to physical training, to light science, to psychology, and more. He created The Energy Blueprint science-based lifestyle programs that target brain energy and mitochondria. He also hosts The Energy Blueprint podcast that features world-wide experts on the subject of understanding fatigue and how to get more energy.

She's going to give you solid advice on how you can avoid overwork, burnout and run your business and your life with a lot more joy. Her mission? To set 50 million hours free through smarter systems. Companies often do a great job at attracting the best and brightest employees, Jenny says, but not keeping them learning and growing and engaged. Inevitably, boredom sets in. You can have all these brilliant people working in intense environments that can lead to burnout. They are short on time to do their work, Jenny continues, and they're also short on creative expression within that corporate context.Many business owners, too, especially small ones, carry the weight of what Jenny calls the Burdensome Bs: 1) bottlenecked, 2) bored, and 3) burned out. And news flash about the myth of hard work for business owners: There's no reward for doing “all the work” other than burnout.You can change that narrative. Running a business does not have to be so hard, or stressful, or overwhelming. Strategic shifts can move any business's operating zone from friction to flow. Wherever you encounter excessive friction, apply the Align-Design-Assign process.Revamping systems and processes also leads you to the real prize: time. Time is not money, time is life force."Time is far more precious than money," Jenny says. "We should be far more considerate with how we're spending our time, who we want to spend it with, how present we are when we are choosing our activities and the people that we're with.”You're going to get a lot of smart business and life tips from this episode and Jenny's book, “Free Time.” Here are some how-tos:Time block and bake in batches—starting with blocking your calendar one year out for deep work daysIdentify the DNA of projects, meaning how you bake is as important as what you makeStructure Delightfully Tiny Teams for maximum flexibilityEstablish a Fiji Test where each team member continually makes themselves replaceable every dayAchieve escape velocity through smarter systems and doubling what you delegateSolve for Sisyphean Systems and the crush of the inbound (i.e., email, social media, questions from your team)Avoid Franken-stringing software while still developing stronger techtuitionCultivate nonlinear breakthroughs through intuition, serendipity and surrenderReach for high net freedom versus solely emphasizing high net worthAnd much more!See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

His particular expertise lies in gut commensal spore bacteria microbiology.He's been a guest on the show before to educate listeners about probiotics and the connections between your microbiome, inflammation and immune function. This time, he's sharing exciting research about a probiotic strain that's tackling the gut-brain axis, called Bifidobacterium longum 1714™.Kiran says, “One really important message that I want people to really wrap their heads around and understand when we're talking about the gut-brain axis is, of course, the gut. A healthy gut is incredibly supportive to the brain. It supports the brain in a number of really important critical functions like recovery, for example, or production of serotonin and dopamine and all these important neurotransmitters, but on the other end of the spectrum, an unhealthy gut is not only not supportive, but it's arguably one of the most toxic things for the brain.”Big topics covered in this episode include:Basic mechanisms by which the gut microbiome can influence neurochemicals and brain inflammationThe gut-brain connection as it relates to stress coping and mental healthHow cortisol and interleukin 6 drive stress response and inflammation in your whole bodyVariables that can cause a breakdown or dysfunction in the psychobiomeTherapeutic interventions, including psychobiotics that can help correct gut-brain axis dysfunctionKiran's great at explaining the science so you clearly understand what the studies mean and can apply new knowledge to your own biology.

During this Upgrade Spotlight, you're going to learn about the physical and mental health benefits of cool sleep and how to hack your sleep with new bed technology.You already know about the physical and psychological effects of not getting good sleep. Whether you're dangerously sleep-deprived or can't stop waking up in the middle of the night, struggling to get enough sleep over time can have devastating impacts on your body and mind.Poor sleep increases a person's risk of developing serious medical conditions, and not getting enough deep sleep increases the chance of high blood pressure; heart attack and stroke; Dementia and Alzheimer's disease; and Type 2 Diabetes. Tara Youngblood founded ChiliSleep so people could get the coolest sleep ever. Water-based cooling helps your body settle into a just-right temperature that's just right for you. Your core body temperature should naturally drop every night, but for lots of people for lots of reasons it doesn't. Here are a few of the good things that happen when you regulate your sleep temperature:Cooler temperatures cue your brain to release melatonin and help you fall asleep faster. Sleeping at colder temperatures improves deep sleep and increases muscle recovery.Muscle repair and growth occur during deep sleep and REM sleep stages due to the natural release of growth hormones.Tara creates technologies and apps to help you recover your sleep and your energy.

She has tips for women at all stages: from active menstrual cycles to perimenopause to menopause.Cynthia is a Johns Hopkins-trained nurse practitioner and functional nutritionist founded and serves as CEO of Everyday Wellness Project. She holds a Master of Science degree in Nursing and Functional Nutrition certifications with advanced trainings in Endocrinology and Gastroenterology. Her career in healthcare includes nearly 20 years of emergency medicine and cardiology experience. She brings a broad perspective when working with women to improve the state of their health. “I really start from a foundational level talking to women about fasting,” Cynthia says. “It's really honoring our own unique physiology. It's leaning into that menstrual cycle. It's leaning into the lifestyle piece that so much of us forget to talk about with our patients, our sleep quality, stress management, anti-inflammatory nutrition, our exercise quality, our connection with nature, all of which are critically important.”She also addresses diet dogma that frustratingly persists, even with established and emerging science about the benefits of intermittent fasting.She tackles this outdated dogma (and a lot more!) in her new book, “Intermittent Fasting Transformation: The 45-Day Program for Women to Lose Stubborn Weight, Improve Hormonal Health, and Slow Aging.”“[Intermittent fasting] restores our intrinsic rhythms, burns fat, regenerates our health right down to the cellular level, and stabilizes our hormones,” Cynthia says in her book. “In turn, we are less likely to develop obesity, diabetes, vascular diseases, and autoimmune disorders.”At the end of this conversation, you'll have the tools to decide if intermittent fasting is the right choice for the state of your own health.

She's a Yale and Columbia University educated holistic psychiatrist board-certified in psychiatry and integrative holistic medicine. She's also an acupuncturist and yoga teacher.In her new book, “The Anatomy of Anxiety: Understanding and Overcoming the Body's Fear Response,” she takes on anxiety, which hits more than 40 million people in any given year. The pandemic drove that number up even more. Even if math isn't your strong suit, you can understand these numbers:An estimated one out of every nine people, or 800 million people, suffer from a mental health disorder, the most common of which is anxiety. Up to 33.7 percent of Americans are affected by an anxiety disorder in their lifetime. Conventional medicine tends to view anxiety as a “neck up” problem of brain chemistry and psychology. Dr. Vora disagrees. She suggests that various physiologic inputs influence anxiety symptoms. “What we've been indoctrinated with is this idea that our mental health is genetically determined chemical imbalance,” Dr. Vora says. “There's some validity to that, although I think, for the most part, any chemical imbalance is often a downstream effect of a state of imbalance happening elsewhere in the physical body.”In this episode, you'll learn:the difference between avoidable, purposeful, false and true anxiety;simple strategies for tuning into “true” anxiety and using its benefits;how your body may be physiologically out of balance (immunity, gut health, inflammation);how “hanxiety” means that blood sugar is affecting your anxiety; actionable lifestyle factors to bring yourself back into balance; how to manage medication withdrawl; and how to reframe your understanding of, and relationship with, anxiety.Dr. Vora also confronts what she calls techxiety. This can include a boundaryless workplace, how the posture of screen use signals your body for anxiety, and, of course, social media. Research shows social media is associated with higher rates of anxiety and depression. Just 20 minutes of Facebook can impact mood.So much of how you live your life as an adult profoundly impacts how your mental health manifests, and that's the part you can control.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

The Part 1 episode #913 explores the scientific perspective with microbiologist and geneticist Andrew Hessel.Amy and Andrew recently authored, “The Genesis Machine: Our Quest to Rewrite Life in the Age of Synthetic Biology.” SYNBIO is the promising and controversial technology platform that combines biology and artificial intelligence. Amy investigates what SYNBIO means for people, commerce and the planet. “This is a book about science,” Amy describes, “but I did not want to write a science book. This is also a business book. It's an understanding-your-own-body book.”She's a futurist who works with data and does predictive modeling. Her academic background includes game theory and economicsAmy founded the Future Today Institute to help companies understand the forces that will shape their futures. She's a professor of strategic foresight at the NYU Stern School of Business and a Visiting Fellow at Oxford University's Säid School of Business. She writes extensively about biotechnology, artificial intelligence, technology policy, and business strategy.“This emerging field of science—synthetic biology—promises to reveal how life is created and how it can be recreated, for many varied purposes, as explained in “The Genesis Machine:”to help us heal without prescription medications, to grow meat without harvesting animals, and to engineer our families when nature fails us.With SYNBO developments come a slew of considerations about how to manage it responsibly.“For the most part, in the US, the regulation is on the end product,” Amy says. “Nobody wants to regulate the process, because we don't want to hamper innovation. However, it does start to raise some gnarly questions when we're talking about alternative uses or different uses for some of these technologies, or cross-border use.”“There's some alignment globally on what's called germline editing, which is when you edit the genome to make it heritable. So whatever that is passes on. At the moment, just about 190 countries have aligned [to agree] that they don't want that to happen. But outside of that, there's a lot of confusion.”See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Part 2 on episode #914 explores the futurist perspective with Amy.Ask yourself, if you could edit your genes—to fix infertility, diabetes or even depression—would you do it? That's the premise, and the promise, of synthetic biology. And a reality you'll have to wrestle with. To make these decisions intelligently requires a deeper—and urgent—understanding of what's happening in science.Right now, scientists are rewriting the rules of our reality. They can use computers to gain access to the cells of any living organism and write new, potentially better, biological code. Andrew—a microbiologist and geneticist—works on the leading edge of genomics and bioinformatics. He's been immersed in the world of synthetic biology for years and joins the show to explain new advancements.As a scientist, communicator, and investor, he explores the future of biology and biotechnology. He co-founded the Center of Excellence for Engineering Biology and the Genome Project-write. The Genome Project-write is an international scientific effort that designs and builds large genomes, including the human genome. As we embrace that life no longer will be a game of chance, it will be the result of design, selection and choice, morechoices have to be made. Decisions like who gets to program life, create new life forms, and even bring former life back from extinction?“The Genesis Machine" is a book about science, but it's not written for scientists, Andrew says. “It's about some amazing people and stories and we've got some fun scenarios that help you think about where some of this stuff is going.

But he's determined to change that. He's a physician and double board-certified psychiatrist who looks at happiness as a brain function. After studying more than 200,000 brain scans of people from 155 countries, Dr. Daniel Amen discovered five primary brain types and seven neuroscience secrets that influence happiness.“I wanted to spend my time and energy and research on happiness because, ultimately... happiness is a moral obligation because of how you impact other people,” Dr. Amen says. “The big central point [is] the brain is the organ of happiness, and if your brain is not healthy, you are not likely to be happy.”What makes you happy? The answer lies in knowing your specific brain type and how it's being influenced by seven specific chemicals.Happiness originates in distinct brain regions: pleasure in the orbitofrontal cortex; motivation and habit formation in the basal ganglia; and mood and cognitive flexibility in the brain stem.You may be one or a combination of these five primary brain types: (take this brain assessment to find out yours)Balanced: you have a very healthy brainSpontaneous: you have low dopaminePersistent: you're often worried, rigid, and inflexibleSensitive: you need other people and isolation is hardCautious: your GABA levels are lowLearn more about brain types and what actually boosts your happiness according to neuroscience in Dr. Amen's book, "You, Happier: The 7 Neuroscience Secrets of Feeling Good Based on Your Brain Type.”“Happiness comes from moving your life forward toward your life goals with meaning and purpose, based on your values, despite whatever obstacles are in your way,” Dr. Amen says. “A happy life doesn't focus on the past with regret or look to the future with fear.” See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Dr. Perlmutter is a neurologist and five-time New York Times bestselling author. His books include “Brain Wash,” “Grain Brain” and “Brain Maker.” He's recognized internationally as a leader in the field of nutritional influences in neurological disorders. Now, he's turning his attention to how uric acid threatens your metabolic health.Uric acid is a waste product of metabolism, and its levels are a key health marker and indicator of chronic degenerative diseases. When uric acid levels rise, they tell your body to store fat, which messes with your metabolism and poses a danger to your health.Alcohol, purines (breakdown product of DNA and RNA in foods) and fructose (the kind of sugar found in processed foods) are the three main sources of uric acid. Since the days of our primate ancestors, we've lost the ability to break down uricase, so what we choose to consume makes a big difference.“If we can emulate those signals to our DNA and our physiology that have evolved to keep us healthy,” Dr. Perlmutter says, “we're going a long way to offsetting these incredibly powerful metabolic disruptions that are paving the way for the biggest cause of disease on our planet.”His newest book, “Drop Acid: The Surprising New Science of Uric Acid—The Key to Losing Weight, Controlling Blood Sugar, and Achieving Extraordinary Health,” includes ways to measure, control and track your uric acid levels and key strategies to manage them.

Corporate interests and public good in America are often at battle, and the world of medical research and care is no different. Dr. John Abramson joins the show to explain what that means for your health and what you can do about it.Dr. Abramson is an expert on health care policy, inside and out. He's taught at Harvard Medical School for 20 years and spent more than 20 years as a family physician.

He's also written a new book, “Sickening: How Big Pharma Broke American Health Care and How We Can Repair It.” He joins the show to talk about how big pharma controls research, withholds data and shapes information that medical professionals rely on to make important care decisions. He shares the stories behind four of the biggest failures in the pharmaceutical world that include deception, illegal practices, exploitation and lies. He'll discuss how the job of pharmaceutical companies–no matter how effective a project may be–is to make a profit.
