Brad Kearns, New York Times bestselling author, Guinness World Record Speedgolfer, and #1 USA Masters age 55-59 high jumper, presents some quick and easy to immediately implement healthy lifestyle tips. This is a great show to share with a friend or loved one to get going on a healthier path without getting too complex or daunting with the suggestions.
The show covers basic assignments in four different lifestyle areas as follows:
Diet: Ditch the “Big Three” as your #1 health and disease prevention objective: Refined sugars, grains and industrial seed oils. Establish a zero tolerance policy with extreme devotion for at least 21 days to give your body a chance to escape carb dependency and get good at burning stored body fat.
Exercise/Movement: Increase all forms of general everyday movement (walking, Morning Movement Routine, yoga/pilates/tai chi, foam rolling, movement breaks from workdesk); conduct formal cardiovascular workouts at MAF heart rate or below; perform regular brief, intense strength training sessions with body under resistance load (bodyweight, free weights, cords/straps); perform occasional all-out sprints–short duration, long recovery interval, consistent high quality.
Sleep/Recovery: Minimize artificial light and digital stimulation after dark, power down from technology with extreme discipline, schedule in solo, reflective time
Stress Management: Discover stress reducing behaviors/activities and prioritize them in daily life: Breathing/meditation, temperature therapy, gratitude practice, cultivating positive attitude/mindset.
