  • How, in your eyes, is the world of politics and real life connected?

541 - How to Deal With Criticism
799

In this episode, we look at how to deal with criticism from your loved ones. 

Why We Take Things Personally:

  • We depend on others for security and needs
  • When others do something that feel threatening to our security we can take it personal
  • This can impact our mental health by adding anxiety, sadness or resentful feelings

How to not take it personal:

  • Gain some perspective - can you see things from their point of view? can you ask clarifying questions?
  • Take some space to work though how you feel about the situation and to gain some clarity
  • Refocus on yourself, stay busy with your own needs
  • Dont "Climb Down" and be negative in response.

538 - How to Be More Assertive
937

In this episode, we look at how to be more assertive in your life. 

Benefits of Being Assertive:

  • increased confidence and self esteem
  • better stress management
  • better boundaries, saying no

What it means to be assertive:

"Being assertive is a core communication skill. Being assertive means that you express yourself effectively and stand up for your point of view, while also respecting the rights and beliefs of others.Being assertive can also help boost your self-esteem and earn others' respect. This can help with stress management, especially if you tend to take on too many responsibilities because you have a hard time saying no. Some people seem to be naturally assertive. But if you're not one of them, you can learn to be more assertive."

How to Be More Assertive

  • Start Small and use "I" statements
  • Reherse and Practice setting boundaries
  • Use Positive Self Talk

535 - 9 Things I Learned About Gratitude
1225

In this episode, we look at what I learned from my conversation last week with Karl Staib. 


Key Takeaways:

  1. Gratitude plays a major role in dealing with grief and loss. By focusing on the time you are grateful for or the people you are grateful for you make it harder to focus on the pain of the experience.
  2. Traumatic experience create deeper rooted neural connections than regular experiences.
  3. When the decision to act has been made (subconsciously) there is a moment in time where a choice can be made. It's small but is something that can help us take control of our actions.
  4. Willpower is limited and based purely availability. Way power is based on your why and can be a stronger motivation to take or not take an action.
  5. The way you view something, how you think about it has an effect on how much energy is available for it. If something is a chore, it becomes draining. If something is an opportunity, it becomes empowering.
  6. When we focus on gratitude in our day to day lives we enable the release of dopamine for yourself and the other person (if you express it)
  7. The 4 levels of gratitude are surrounding, sharing, self-gratitude, and spiritual. Surrounding focuses on what we can experience with our senses. Sharing is what we can express to others. Self is what we love about ourselves. and Spiritual is our connection to something bigger.
  8. The easiest way to build a gratitude habit is to focus on expressing it while brushing your teeth. Or any other habit you already have. Reclaim that time and focus on 3 things you are grateful for.
  9. Really focusing on your why as the core of creating change is the best way to make your actions powerful

531 - A New Way to Set Goals
1250

In this episode, we look at a new way to set goals that have a chance of being accomplished. 

What are LEAP Goals?

A goal-setting framework designed for long-term, lifestyle based goals.

What it stands for?

  • Long Term
    Your goal should revolve around adjusting your lifestyle for the long term rather than trying to accomplish something specific in the short term.
  • Empathetic
    Your goal needs to consider and account for the reality of your situation and position. Setting goals that are completely out of the realm of likely possibilities will just leave you feeling defeated.
  • Actionable
    Your goal must be something that you can take action on in order to move forward.
  • Process Focused 
    Your goal must revolve around engaging in certain behaviors regularly rather than accomplishing certain outcomes.

When to use LEAP Goals

  1. When aiming for habit or lifestyle changes
  2. When struggling to find motivation each day
  3. When other goal-setting options aren't working

In this episode, we look at your relationship to failure and why it matters so much .

Try Empower: http://empower.me/tinyleaps

Your relationship to failure is your relationship to success

  1. If you believe failure is a negative, you will avoid it. If failure is pain, you will do more to avoid it than to gain success.
  2. If you believe failure is a requirement you will do what you need to to experience it.
  3. If you have failed in the past and you hold on to it you will likely fail again in the future
  4. If you have failed in the past and you learn from it you will likely succeed in the future.

523 - What I Learned From Tracking My Weight
1452

In this episode, we talk about some lessons learned while tracking my weight every day.

Try Hydrant: http://drinkhydrant.com Code: tinyleaps

Why I Started

  • Almost hit 210
  • Decided I wanted to take control
  • Knew I needed to learn about my body
  • Decided to weigh myself daily for the data

Lessons Learned (These are just for me)

  • My body doesn't process carbs well
  • Around 80g of carbs per day usually = weight loss
  • High protein diets leave me feeling energized and focused
  • 100g of carbs per day usually = sustaining
  • If I'm in a "losing pattern" I can cheat without killing momentum (it slows but progress is still made)
  • There are a lot of landmines
  • Always read labels
  • Most things are fine to eat as long as you can "afford it"
  • Having an understanding of your macro ratios, quality of food, and what works for your body is more important than counting calorie

Notable Quote

"Across many studies of mammals, from the smallest rodents all the way to us humans, the data suggests that we are profoundly shaped by our social environment and that we suffer greatly when our social bonds are threatened or severed.  When this happens in childhood it can lead to long-term health and educational problems.  We may not like the fact that we are wired such that our well-being depends on our connections with others, but the facts are the facts."

- Matthew Lieberman, Author of Social

3 Reasons

  1. Sense of purpose
    We want to be needed and relied on. We want to mean something to someone.
  2. Sense of acceptance
    We want to feel validated as the people we are. A social circle proves that we aren't the "weird" kid.
  3. Sense of support
    We want to feel that, should we ever need it, someone has our back. Even if we don't want to rely on that.

How to Build Your Community

  1. Find groups and communities around your interests
  2. Be open and willing to share pieces of yourself
  3. Have an opinion

515 - What is Social Distancing
1312

In this episode, we discuss Social Distancing and why it's important. 

Get Surfshark VPN at http://surfshark.deals/tinyleaps  Enter promo code TinyLeaps for 83% off and one extra month free!

What is social distancing

Social distancing is a set of nonpharmaceutical infection control actions intended to stop or slow down the spread of a contagious disease.

"Many cities undertook just these measures over 100 years ago to blunt the impact of the 1918 influenza pandemic. Those that acted swiftly and decisively were rewarded with fewer cases and a lower peak of cases, relieving the demand for medical care."

Why social distancing matters

Avoid exposure, avoid spreading. There are not enough tests and we don't have an accurate idea of who has it / who doesn't, The only way to prevent overwhelm is to reduce chance of exposure altogether.

  1. Flatten the curve
  2. Give the system more time to react
  3. Protect yourself and those around you (if you get exposed, everyone you know will likely get exposed).

Basic rules to follow

  1. Stay at home if you can
  2. Wear face masks if you have any of the symptoms (cough, fever, fatigue...etc)
  3. Maintain a minimum 6 foot proximity between you and others around you when possible
  4. Do not attend events or gatherings unless completely necessary

Important notes to consider

1. It's more important than ever now to stay connected with people. Distance does not have to mean isolation.

2. Do not choose to be ignorant here. Yes, there is a lot of hype and nonsense in the media. No, the world probably isn't ending. No you don't need to stock up on 12 years worth of toilet paper. No, your armageddon bunker is probably not necessary. No, this isn't going to turn into the Walking Dead. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't be informed and act based on that information. Learn what you need to learn and don't be stupid. This doesn't get solved if we don't take it seriously.

This can very quickly turn into a situation like what Italy is currently facing where the country is shut down, and doctors are being forced to decide who lives and who dies based on chances of survival. Or it can be brought under control by giving our medical experts the time they need to find a more concrete solution. 

We're the ones in control of which outcome we get. Your actions and choices today matter for this just as they do in your personal development.

Here are simple ways to change that.

509 - What I Learned From Meditation
875

In this episode, we talk about some lessons I've learned by practicing meditation. 

  1. Struggle leads to happiness and permanent growth
  2. You always feel better doing the thing rather than not doing it
  3. The "you" you think you are is not "you". "You" are not permanent. "You" are malleable and changeable. Therefore, "You" can grow.

Quoted from Harvard Business Review:

"You may think you’re not bothered by your overstuffed filing cabinets or the stacks of paper on your desk. But scientists at the Princeton University Neuroscience Institute have used fMRI and other approaches to show that our brains like order, and that constant visual reminders of disorganization drain our cognitive resources and reduce our ability to focus. They also found that when participants cleared clutter from their work environment, they were better able to focus and process information, and their productivity increased."

What can you do?

  1. Create a schedule of regular clean up
  2. Create an organizational system for your space
  3. Take the extra 3 seconds to put things in the right place

498 - Why You Need to Understand Interest Rates
961

In this episode, we look at the APR on our credit cards and loans. 


Quotes:

"More than 40% of Gen Z, around 30% of Millennials and Gen X, and almost 40% of Baby Boomers say they don’t know what the interest rate on their credit card is, according to a new survey by Stash, a micro-investing and banking app.

But it’s not like folks don’t need to know because they’re paying off their bill in full each month and not triggering any interest charges: Americans paid $113 billion in credit card interest last year, up 12% from 2017, and up a whopping 49% from five years ago when the national average was just $76.3 billion, according to MagnifyMoney, a financial product comparison website."

Takeaways:

1. A higher APR or Annual Percentage Rate leads to paying more overtime. This seems basic but is often underestimated.

2. If you aren't extremely careful, you can get into a situation where you are never able to get out of the debt (student loans).

3. Higher APR means less gets paid on the principle which means carrying a higher balance for longer and lowering your credit score.

Here's what to do:

  1. Find your APR for every line of credit
  2. Create a plan to repay those debts. Either based on APR or on balance (avalanche or snowball)

488 - The Mental Health Benefits of a Routine
731

In this episode, we look at the mental health benefits of having a routine. 

1. Take Control of Your Sleep Cycle

"Routine can liberate your mental health, and it can have incredible psychological benefits, including alleviating symptoms of mental disorders, and insomnia. Creating a daytime routine for yourself or a loved one can promote better sleeping cycles." (Dr. Danielle Forshee)


2. Know What to Expect

"The importance of mental health has been associated with a variety of mental health conditions, including bipolar disorderaddictiondepression, among others. The reason behind this is that when we organize ourselves and know what to expect, it’s easier to actively work towards counteracting the thoughts and symptoms of any of the aforementioned mental health conditions." (Psychology Today)


3. Take More Time Off

"Creating a routine allows us to build in time for the important things. This includes time to rest, relax, and have fun. It’s not perfect – there are always going to be days when something overruns, a job takes three times as long as we expect it to take, or someone pops in unexpectedly. But structuring our time to include some downtime increases the likelihood that we’ll manage to have that time most days." (Blurt It Out)

If you aren't familiar, Lion's Mane and Chaga are these funny looking mushrooms that have been linked to all kinds of awesome health benefits. Lion's Mane even helps support increased focus, productivity, and creativity.

The team over at Four Sigmatic had the brilliant idea to take these mushrooms, combine them with 100% organic Arabica coffee beans. It has 0 sugar, 0 carbs, and 0 calories. It’s organic, Vegan, Paleo, sugar-free, dairy-free.

and the absolute best part? It leaves you feeling great! Seriously I've got this buzz right now that just feels natural, focused, and in control. It's not the usual hyperactive energy that I get from my regular coffee.

The coffee even comes in these really easy to use packets that you can bring with you anywhere. Just heat up some water, rip open a packet, pour, mix, and you're good to go.

Back to Basics: Your Weekly Review

Quotes:

"No matter how organized you are, how together your system is, how careful you are about processing your inbox, making a task list, and working your calendarif you don’t stop every now and again to look at the “big picture”, you’re going to get overwhelmed. You end up simply responding to what’s thrown at you, instead of proactively creating the conditions of your life.

Almost every productivity expert recommends some kind of review, whether it’s a formal process you crank through (like David Allen recommends) or simply a few minutes of “me time” to think about where you’re at. Although there’s nothing magical about the week as a unit of time, doing such a review weekly seems to work best – it’s a block of time that’s very deeply ingrained in us as a scheduling unit."

405 - Debunking "Healthy" Foods
758

In this episode, we take a look at some of the foods that we all like to think are healthy, even when they aren't.

Key Points:

  • Why eating sushi is the equivalent of eating slices of white bread
  • Why a spinach wrap is basically just green colored bread
  • How to eat healthy in today's world

Notable Quote:

"Two sushi rolls may seem like the perfect light lunch. It's fish, right? But what most women don't know is that a typical California roll contains the carb equivalent of two and a half to four slices of bread—that's like eating two sandwiches filled with fake crab, avocado, and a teeny bit of veggies. Add a spicy tuna roll (another common choice) and you're eating another mayo-laden tuna sammy. At 640 calories, these rolls aren't terrible. But all those simple carbs are crowding out the protein and veggies." - Rachel Beller, R.D.

The Highlights:

  • Everything in life is competing for your attention
  • By taking control of your attention you can improve your focus

The Quotes: 

"Depression lives in the past and anxiety lives in the future. Alternately, calmness and peace of mind live in the present." - Elyssa Barbash

"Harvard psychologists Matthew Killingsworth and Daniel Gilbert found that people spend almost 47% of their waking hours thinking about something other than what they’re currently doing."

The Takeaway:

"Monotasking, also known as single-tasking, is the practice of dedicating oneself to a given task and minimizing potential interruptions until the task is completed or a significant period of time has elapsed. Monotasking contrasts with multitasking, which is the ability to divide one's focus among multiple tasks."

What exactly is the problem?

Losing weight in a healthful way that is long term. Or losing weight and still feeling like you have energy. Or that feeling where you’re like, I’m doing all the things but it’s not working or I can’t sustain it. This is why a lot of people choose Keto but the truth of Keto is that it's very difficult to maintain and follow and still have a life. You breathe wrong and you knock your body out of ketosis but Keto is not the only way to burn fat as fuel.

385 - How to Promote Better Mental Health
669

In this episode, we share some strategies to maintain your mental health. Get excited, because this is Tiny Leaps, Big Changes. 

Join Sparkology:

If you've ever wanted to start your own podcast then you need to check out my new membership site, Sparkology.

Start your 7 day trial today for just $1 by going to www.sparkology.co/tinyleaps. That's www.sparkology.co/tinyleaps


The Problem:

We know that mental health is important. We understand that we should be doing regular up keep of our mental health just like we do for our physical health. 

But how do you actually do it? 

Often times because mental health issues are invisible, it's easy to say that they aren't really there. 

We tend to chock up mental health issues to any number of other things, right down to just straight up ignoring it. 

So how do we maintain something we can't see and, don't even really understand? And what can we do on a daily basis to promote better mental health? 


The Research: 

From Patricia Harteneck, Ph.D., MBA

"Your body releases stress-relieving and mood-boosting endorphins before and after you work out, which is why exercise is a powerful antidote to stress, anxiety, and depression."

"What you eat nourishes your whole body, including your brain. Carbohydrates (in moderate amounts) increase serotonin, a chemical that has been shown to have a calming effect on your mood. Protein-rich foods increase norepinephrine, dopamine, and tyrosine, which help keep you alert. And vegetables and fruits are loaded with nutrients that feed every cell of your body, including those that affect mood-regulating brain chemicals."


From Mariana Plata

"The importance of mental health has been associated with a variety of mental health conditions, including bipolar disorder, addiction, depression, among others. The reason behind this is that when we organize ourselves and know what to expect, it’s easier to actively work towards counteracting the thoughts and symptoms of any of the aforementioned mental health conditions."

Routines give you a sense of control, but mixing things up reminds you how in control you actually are. 


From Health.gov.au

"Being part of a community can have a positive effect on mental health and emotional wellbeing. Community involvement provides a sense of belonging and social connectedness. It can also offer extra meaning and purpose to everyday life."


Recap

1. Take care of yourself

2. Do something different

3. Share with others to connect more

377 - Are Your Memories Real?
715

Key Points:

The facts don't change, but neuroscientists have shown that each time we remember something, we are reconstructing the event, reassembling it from traces throughout the brain.” - Ken Eisold PHD

Quote from: John Kelley, Ph.D., deputy director of Harvard Medical School's Program in Placebo Studies & Therapeutic Encounter.

"Whenever you look at any randomized control trials, it’s surprising how similarly the side-effect profile for the placebo often mirrors the side-effect profile for the active [treatment]... It’s the power of the imagination. …. Just imagining something is happening is enough to activate those portions of the brain associated with that thought, or worry, or pain.”

Daniel Thomas Hind is the founder of Evolution Eat where he and his team specialize in helping workaholics and high performers become more productive at work and more fulfilled in life. How? By transforming their relationships with food.

He believes that when you stop obsessing about food, stop reaching for sugar to fill an emotional void, stop judging yourself for your weight every day, something awesome happens: You have more energy. You create more time. You become more creative, less stressed. You become way more productive. You look and feel f**king awesome.

356 - How to Beat Laziness
1152

Start your 7 day free trial with Blinkist today: http://blinkist.com/tinyleaps

In this episode, I want to talk about a problem we all struggle with. It's called laziness. It's the thing that holds us back from our major goals, the thing that stop us from getting what it is we ultimately want. We all experience it. We all struggle with being lazy. We all struggle with actually doing the work, showing up and just getting it done. We all struggle with that, so it's not something to feel bad about or embarrassed or anything like that, but I've found that if you can better understand why you are being lazy, it can help you to break out of it. So in this episode, I want to go through all of that.

The five main reasons for your laziness:

  1. Lack of Self Confidence
  2. Lack of Support (Being Celebrated or Cheered)
  3. A Lack of Recognition
  4. Lack of Self-Discipline
  5. Lack of Interest

In this episode of the podcast I talk about what to do when you don’t have support. I have talked about this subject previously but I felt as though it was important enough to look at again and shed some new light on this topic. What do you do when you are pursuing your goals but feel as though no one is in your corner?

If you are building something and pushing yourself to reach big goals it is likely that you have experienced the feeling (or reality) of your family and friends not supporting you. I share with you my own experience around this topic and dive into tangible things you can do now when you don’t feel supported.

In this episode you will learn:

  • What to do when your positive inner voice fails you.
  • Four things you can do when you are not supported.
  • How to become your own best support system.

295- What to Do in August to Crush Your 2018 Goals
954

In this episode of the podcast, we are talking about what you can do right now as we move into August to crush your 2018 goals. What were your goals back in January? Have you looked at them? Do you remember what they were? They probably have evolved as the year has progressed, but as we enter into the eighth month of the year, it’s time that we revisited them.

The good news is, you still have plenty of time to accomplish your goals. In this episode, I share with you my own process for reviewing the first half of the year, auditing where I currently am, and establishing what next steps I need to take to accomplish what I set out to do.

In this episode you will learn:

  • The four steps that you need to take right now to crush your 2018 goals.
  • The number one reason why people do not accomplish their goals.
  • How to keep momentum instead of having to constantly create it.

285 - How Economics Helps in Our Daily Life
1100

In this episode, I talk about the role the economy plays in our day-to-day behavior. 

Follow me on Instagram:

http://instagram.com/greggclunis

Episode Notes:

The economy, our income, and our spending power

"Your income determines how much you can afford to allocate to different needs and wants. Most of us need a place to live, transportation and a certain amount of food. Economists refer to these as basic needs, which tend to get first priority. Your income is limited, whether it comes from traditional employment, self-employment or a combination of these -- even if you're a billionaire. Of course, someone who has a lower income will tend to spend a higher percentage on basic needs because they have to. Households with higher incomes can afford to allocate more of their incomes, as a percentage and in absolute dollar terms, to discretionary purchases."

https://budgeting.thenest.com/5-economic-factors-influence-peoples-behavior-25099.html

Economic development and individual and social behavior

"Several studies previously pointed out that for many people unemployment leads to deterioration of mental state, increased anxiety, depression, decreased life satisfaction and overall indifference."

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1877042813052361

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs

"This five-stage model can be divided into deficiency needs and growth needs. The first four levels are often referred to as deficiency needs (D-needs), and the top level is known as growth or being needs (B-needs).

Deficiency needs arise due to deprivation and are said to motivate people when they are unmet. Also, the motivation to fulfill such needs will become stronger the longer the duration they are denied. For example, the longer a person goes without food, the more hungry they will become."
