The Mindful Experiment
EP#106 - The Eye of the Hurricane

EP#106 - The Eye of the Hurricane

June 12, 2019
We all have allowed ourselves to be affected by the storms of life.
 
There are infinite things that can take us off centered, distract us, and not allow us to be on our path, our vision that we have created and desire to experience.
 
I know this situation far too often and it is something that we all go through.
 
The truth is, this will consistently show up in your life, but as the old saying goes, "It is not about what happenes to you but how you react to it."
 
In this new episode on The Mindful Experiment, I share some life nuggets to help you realize when you are in the storm compared to being in the eye of the storm and what tools can help you along the way.
 
EP#103 - Breaking the Diabesity Epidemic

EP#103 - Breaking the Diabesity Epidemic

May 25, 2019
Part CEO, part personal development wonk, and part biohacker info geek, Thom King is a self-confessed serial entrepreneur. While his favorite book list contains many success-oriented and personal-development classics, the traditional definition of achieving success (e.g. make a lot of money) is not what inspires or motivates King. He follows more of a “you aren’t doing well unless you’re also doing some good” line of thinking. King’s company has been built around the simple principle of “do the right thing.”
 
In 1999, Thom’s personal passion for food and his concern over the explosion of metabolic disease led him to found Steviva Brands, now known as Icon Foods, with a mission to stem the tide of “diabesity” by providing consumers healthy alternatives to sugar. In recent years, his passion for food and optimal health have intersected with his embrace of a ketogenic (low carb, high fat) diet. Thom’s latest project is a line of ketogenic condiments intended to help more people successfully adopt a
healthier lifestyle.

EP#102 - The Power of Intuition

EP#102 - The Power of Intuition

May 22, 2019

In this episode, I share the difference between using logic/past experiences/EGO to make a decision rather than, tapping into your intution.  I break down the differences between the two from a neurological standpoint and how to use intuition to the best of my ability to share.

Intuition is something not taught, but learned.  Intuition is a muscle that you can become more aware of and learn to utilize in your life BUT, you have to learn how intuition shows up for you.  I will be sharing how intuition works for me and when I know I am using my intuition vs. Using my mind (left brain).

Tune in and let me know what you think...

EP#101 - The End to Binge Eating

EP#101 - The End to Binge Eating

May 17, 2019

Glenn Livingston, Ph.D. is a veteran psychologist and was the long time CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm which has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry. Glenn has sold $30,000,000 of marketing consulting services over the course of his career.

You may have seen his (or his company’s) previous work, theories, and research in major periodicals like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, The Indiana Star Ledger, The NY Daily News, American Demographics, or any of the other major media outlets you see on this page. You may also have heard him on ABC, WGN, and/or CBS radio, or UPN TV.

Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, Dr. Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his own patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants.

Most important, however, was his own personal journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.
