    Oprah's Life Coach is Back! Slow that Anxiety Spiral Down with a Dose of Curiosity and Creativity. With Martha Beck

    Today’s guest is the amazing Martha Beck. I know why Oprah loved working with her! She’s back on Untangle for the second time, and her last interview was our number 1 top listened to episode…so we are thrilled to have her back. Her next book is called Beyond Anxiety: Curiosity, Creativity and Finding Your Life’s Purpose. This is the 10th book from Martha, a Phd, Harvard-trained Sociologist, World-renowned Coach and NYT bestselling author. She shares why anxiety is at an all time high, and why curiosity and creativity can be our superpowers to help reduce it. We can stop ourselves from falling into an anxiety spiral and she shows us how. She used me as a guinia pig which is always a little uncomfortable for me, but helps me shift the way I see things so that’s a good thing. I hope you get as much out of Martha’s interview as I did. 

    There’s so much here to help us lead our best lives.

    Time to Rethink Your Sleep? Try these New Tools for Rest and Recovery. With Natalie Pennicotte-Collier

    Today's guest Natalie Pennicotte-Collier, a Sleep Expert, Clinical Therapist and Author of the book Sleep Reset, The New Tools for Rest and Recovery. Over the past decade, she has developed a mind-body approach to enhance sleep, performance and overall well-being. She discusses the book and its five week program that uses a blend of mindfulness based cognitive therapy, breath work and hypnotherapy to support the nervous system, reduce stress and calm our racing minds. I liked that the book goes through a step by step roadmap over five weeks. It’s easy to follow. Also, she outlines why a good night sleep is so important for our mental and physical health. Sleep isn’t just a nighttime problem, she says, it’s a 24 hour problem. And a 24 hour solution. So true!

    Ideas, Inspiration and Tools to Build a Life Rich in Experiences and Die With No Regrets, With Bridget Hilton and Joe Huff

    Today's guests are Bridget Hilton and Joe Huff, co-authors of a book called Experiential Billionaire. Build a Life Rich in Experiences and with No Regrets. Intriguing, right? I was curious to hear their stories and what led them to this perspective. Armed with a sense of urgency after his dad died young, Joe became painfully aware that there was no guarantee of how much time he had to live. He began focusing on doing things (and living his life) with an 'experiential mindset' in love, work, service and adventure. His Goal? To live a rich and meaningful life. Bridget is also passionate about creating new experiences and living her life armed with a zeal for big leaps of faith and an endless spirit of adventure.

    They say…imagine you had one year to live. … take out a sheet of paper and write down the top 10 things you'd want to do right now. Then, look at that list and see how many of those things are in your life right now. Hint…do more of what matters to you, what you love…while you’re here. Start now. 

    They share some of their great adventures as well…and spoiler alert, they’re not all big things. It’s often the little things that fill us up as well. Go for it!

    High Five Your Demons: How to Be More Than Ten Percent Happier. With Dan Harris and (bonus) his 9 yr. old son, Alexander.

    Today I’m excited to interview not only the amazing Dan Harris..but — bonus, I interview his 9 yr.old son Alexander at the end of the show. I actually wanted to find out if Dan walks the talk and, indeed, spoiler alert, he does. It was fun to see that his son shares his sense of humor. Very funny. Alexander says he's Dan's emotional support animal when he travels with him. And definitely thinks Dan is a hippie. Hmmm.

    I think of Dan as part comedian, part meditation or self help guru and part real guy who shares all the messy stuff that shows up in his life. The stuff most of us hold inside. And while it’s the 10 year anniversary of 10% Happier…he’s actually, he says, now more like 40% happier.

     Dan’s books, podcast and meditations have helped so many people.

    I love when he talks about his twin demons…anger and self centeredness and shares how he copes. OR the toilet vortex — a term his friend gave him for when we go down the rabbit hole of rumination. 

    We discuss what has motivated him to up level his happiness and kindness game; how his 360 review while at ABC news helped him see how other people actually experienced him…especially when he wasn’t his best self…and how glad he is that his most recent 360 is MUCH much better. 

    Why has meditation moved from the realm of hippies into the mainstream? Science has stepped up to confirm what we all know-- that meditation works, along with the many other things we’ve learned we should do to be our best selves. Dan’s impact has been huge — changing lives by connecting so many people to these practices.

    Fun fact. Dan’s favorite style of méditation — loving kindness. I can’t wait to see what he does next…which he alludes to a little bit here. And, as mentioned, it was a joy to interview his very funny son, Alexander. 

    Check out his podcast: Ten Percent Happier. And his meditation app. All great stuff! The book is available at all major booksellers.

    Navigating Life After a Traumatic Brain Injury; Finding Hope, Meaning, Love. With Adam Pearce, Co-founder of the LoveYourBrain Foundation.

    Today’s guest, Adam Pearce, has a heartbreaking personal story that has humbled him and changed his life. It’s also taught him patience, resilience and hope — and perhaps given him a deeper experience of love. Most importantly, he’s learned the gifts that come from accepting what IS — especially when it’s out of our control. 

    In 2009, his brother, Kevin Pearce, one of the top snowboarders in the world (competing against Shaun White and often winning) had a tragic accident while training. This happened as he was heading into the Olympics. It left Kevin with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) which changed the course of his life, and Adam's life as well. Adam shared how he kept going despite sadness and uncertainty - and how both he and Kevin had to reframe their mindset to help the healing process. One doctor told Kevin he would need to find a way to ‘love your brain.’ This ultimately became the name of the foundation they formed to help others with TBI. Meditation, yoga, compassion and connection…are all at the heart of the foundation. I loved when Adam said that adversity and suffering can be a greater pathway to finding meaning and growth. So true. He’s quite an amazing guy.

    Check him out at CNN Heroes with Adam Pearce: https://www.cnn.com/videos/tv/2023/03/09/meditation-yoga-retreat-traumatic-brain-injury-cnnheroes.cnn

    The film about them is produced by HBO and is called Crash Reel.

    Optimize Mental Health, Flow and Sports Performance. With Dr. Alex Auerbach

    Dr. Alex Auerbach is a Sports Psychologist and Director of Wellness and Development for the basketball team, Toronto Raptors. Before working with the Raptors, he was the Director of Clinical and Sports Psychology for the University of Arizona. He’s a huge fan of Mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy —also called ACT — for optimizing both the performance and mental health of athletes. He works with athletes on self-awareness, and emotional regulation and helps them understand and even name and ground their often difficult feelings. Mindfulness is a core pillar in all his work.

    He shares some of the great research that’s been done suggesting that mindfulness can lead to optimal performance and, possibly, to the all-important flow state. There are so many stressors in the life of a professional athlete — and these tools are a great way to help manage stress and tension as well as being more resilient to the ups and downs that are a natural part of life.
