Have you ever made progress toward a goal and then felt like you went backwards?
Gained weight after weight loss?
Lost fitness or endurance after illness or injury?
Accumulated debt after reducing it?
Today we are talking tools and responses to any kind of setback! I'm obsessed with this topic!
Someone asked me how I "avoid" the worry spiral, and I'm sharing my top tools for those moments of stress and worry that confront me often.
Plus, we're diving into the idea of your mental model (and if it's working for you), daily goals, an update on the twins and more!
About 6 months ago, I started tracking a health metric I hadn't tracked before. It's a technical one, so today we're breaking it down and talking all things heart rate variability!
Even though we technically hit this major milestone awhile ago, it's still cool to "officially" be in the 1000s of episode numbers! We made it! I couldn't have done it without you. We're all over the place today, even touching on some criticism the show received recently. Enjoy this one and thanks for making Primal Potential possible!

I believe that one of the most pervasive forms of "laziness" is not taking action because you "don't know" how to start or what to do. Today, as it relates to more money and additional streams of income, we're tackling that 'issue'.
What a week it's been! We unexpectedly ended up at Johns Hopkins this week to have surgery on the twins in utero. I didn't record a Saturday episode before we left and I didn't bring a microphone in our frantic rush to pack and get to Baltimore, but I jumped on my phone to give you an update. Back to our normal programming on Monday. Love you guys!
A few months back, I shared one of my personal standards for making money decisions. A listener wrote in and asked if I'd share some of my standards around health, wealth and relationships. So, today I'm sharing what my standards are, how they help and how I apply them on a regular basis.
Hormones run the show. Sure, what we eat matters a lot. How much we eat matters a lot. Our stress, sleep and movement matter a lot.
But hormones run the show. They drive appetite, cravings, fat storage (and location of fat storage), mood, irritability, workout recovery, libido and so, so much more.
Often, optimizing your hormones can mean fewer cravings, fat loss, increased motivation, decreased depression and anxiety, better sleep, fewer headaches and overall better quality of life. Fortunately, there's so much we can do to support our hormones. Much, if not most, is within our control (regardless of our age!) Nutrition is a powerful tool, as is stress management, sleep, avoiding toxins and targeted supplementation.
Today we're talking about a brand new tool designed specifically to help you support your hormones.*

Last month was Financial Literacy Month and I continue to be shocked by how many people aren't taking daily action to improve their financial situations. Not to mention the number of people who think that financial freedom isn't for them because they are too old, too young, not educated enough or don't have enough time. They're all wrong and it's hurting their health, their futures and so much more. Please, listen to this episode and commit to taking daily action!
