#6 Mental Hygiene

ERobbie and Lindsay talk about the scourge of modern life: Social Media! And more generally, how we can be more mindful about the information that comes in to us and the information that goes out from us. * CGP Grey - This video will make you angry. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rE3j_RHkqJc A short and brilliant description of one of the big problems with social media. * Tristan Harris on Sam Harris. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlPF9_1VIso We didn’t mention this one in the show because I hadn’t listened to it until after we recorded, but it is well worth listening to. Tristan talks to Sam about the dangers of social media. Also, fun fact: Lindsay and I were classmates with Tristan at NLP Marin for awhile.

#5 The God Time

ELindsay talks about her favorite daily practice and the "most beautiful part of [her] life" - God Time. Robbie drops some spiritual knowledge and asks questions which Lindsay sort of answers. A short and sweet episode. A great place to start with Ken Wilber (the philosopher who talks about 1st, 2nd and 3rd person Spirit): One Taste: Daily Reflections on Integral Spirituality. You can order the book here: http://amzn.to/2qQdNxI Since recording, Lindsay has realized she has more to say on the "how to" part of God Time. So, if you listen and you're like "I want more!" email Lindsay and she will invite you to a free special class for subscribers/listeners.

#2 The Bells

ERobbie and Lindsay talk about THE BELLS, the workout routine that has made a huge difference in both their lives. They also follow up on questions about The Grid from the last episode, and more fun stuff besides. The whole show is great, and if you want to skip straight to the part about THE BELLS, it begins at 34:50. Enjoy! Below are links mentioned in the show. The egregious Keystone Habits article http://www.businessinsider.com/keystone-habits-that-transform-your-life-2015-8/#having-strong-willpower-8 Here’s a video of kids being tortured with marshmallows: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0yhHKWUa0g#t=02m53s The video is a Ted Talk about the experiment. But the link takes you straight to the kids. If you want to watch the whole thing, just skipped to the start.
