TMHS 793: Strengthen Your Mental & Emotional Fitness Through the Power of Creativity – With IN-Q

TMHS 200: 15 of the Biggest Health, Fitness & Life Lessons from the Last 100 Shows

When we set out on a journey to get to a destination, we don’t always know what’s in store for us on the road (or if that road might take us somewhere totally unexpected). The important thing is that we embark on our journey, and, as the wise writer Paulo Coelho says, discover our own “personal legend”.

Every journey begins with taking the first step. When I took the first step to start this show, all I knew was that I wanted to help. I wanted to be a blessing in people’s lives. I want to, not just give them hope, but to give them how. And through all of these years and countless hours, I feel that we can confidently say we’ve helped make that a reality.

What I didn’t expect, however, is how much I would love this process, how much I would grow, and how many amazing friends would be brought into my life. But, learning has been off of the most valuable gifts to me. Part of teaching is being a lifetime student yourself. I’ve been able to embrace a childlike sense of wonder, and curiosity that has me asking powerful questions each day. One of those recent questions was, “How can I best celebrate this moment of our 200th show while providing a tremendous amount of value and inspiration for everyone at the same time?” That question led to this. I want to thank you for making me a part of your life, and for being on this journey with me. Please know that the best is yet to come, and join me in celebrating this special moment!

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • How the Law of Metabolic Compensation impacts our lives each day.
  • 4 ways you can shift your calories and exercise to change your metabolism.
  • What vanishing calories are.
  • The one thing you need to avoid when starting your day.
  • The #1 thing that determines your health, happiness, and success in life.
  • What the 6 human needs are (and how they impact you).

  • The leading cause of sexual dysfunction in our world today.
  • What the most valuable foods and supplements for your immune system are.
  • Why pre- and post-workout nutrition actually matters.
  • What’s really behind the huge increase in autoimmune diseases today.
  • The inherent value you’ll receive from being a lifetime student.
  • The only field of medicine that doesn’t examine the organ they treat (this is dangerous!)
  • Important ideas to help us have a great relationship with food.
  • Why it’s essential to have a personal code to live by.
  • What the placebo effect actually is (and how our thoughts affect our bodies).
  • How to radically increase your productivity and accomplish your goals faster.
  • How exercise plays a critical role in brain health.

  1. Shawn,

    Congratulations to you and Jade on reaching your double century!

    I really appreciate the work and love you put in to the podcast.

    I especially love the humour you both inject and the way you break things down and put effort into making information as easily digestible and implementable as possible.

    Looking forward to the next 200!

    Love and best wishes,

  2. I just wanted to acknowledge and thank you for your contribution to my life and all the other lives you touch daily. I will admit that I don’t tune in daily or listen to every episode. However, if I am feeling unmotivated, unfocused, or doubting my new direction I always find my way to your show. You have provided much needed inspiration and direction both personally and with your guests. I always leave knowing that I am on the right path and what I am doing is helping others.

  3. ITALY! that’s how far this podcast went. I started following you whith an episode on Maddy Moon and her experience on the crazy fitness industry, expecially when it gets to the extreme of ortorexia, over training and so on. I’m italian and living in Italy those days can feel like not that different from Us or anywhere in all this globalized world. I wonder where is the old dolce vita anymore? where is the kind of Sopfia Loren woman, and all our values? My girlfriend and lot of women i know they all seem so obsessed with losing weight, look youger, get to the gym just to burn calories… I started follow this path to to the point i was not more able to sleep well, lost my period, seeing my hair getting thinner…So just to make a long story short, following your podcast was a real buster, a push that permitted me to start a new journey to get in contact with my needs and what resonate with me. Your insights are Amazing, and it made me smile the BROTH PODCAST, in Italy we do use it a lot in the past, so by starting doing some grandma receips( and who cares if its not vegan or paleo or whatever!) i started also enjoing my meals, feeling better and looking great! lots of amore, love and kisses FEDY

    1. Federica, I’m sending you the biggest hug. Love, love, love your insights. Meraviglioso!
