London, Hampstead, UK discussed on The Rich Roll Podcast


Time here. It's been amazing. It's been incredible, but it's your time now. Let's get in the book done. It's kind of the push. Yeah, and to get a book out, you have to participate in the world. You can't opt out of modern western society and expect anybody to be interested in your book, right? So you have to remain in contact to some extent with London or urban centers in order to do that, which you did, but I think it brings up a central point that's at the core of all of your work, which is like, how do you live this more naturalistic lifestyle, more symbiotic with your natural biological rhythms and those of the planet, while also existing in the world? Because I think a lot of people, it's easy to look at you and go, oh, he's the barefoot freak, and he doesn't have any furniture and his kids are running around naked, and he's doing cacao ceremonies. He's like, that's not my life. Like that's not, I have trouble accessing what aspect of that is applicable to how I'm living. Or relatable, right? Yeah, he's squatting, that's cool. Am I gonna squat? I don't know, maybe, but how do I connect with this? And I think really the power of be more human is this edict that you repeat over the course of the many pages, which is like, this is not about being a luddite, per se, or opting out. It's about trying to find a rhythm that works for you, where you can kind of take from this wisdom and build these habits and practices into your life without completely disrupting the way that you live. Yeah, I think and again, it's walking that path and not just talking the path, right? So I think if it wasn't for lockdown, we can't really nice lifestyle in London, you know? Hampstead was pretty great. Oh man, we had this amazing life. And again, you could have that nature immersion. And throughout the book, I also put this, you know, we can't all live in nature, but it doesn't mean we can't live naturally, and we should be able to get our needs met and have environment. That's the point. It's just not we hear we're in the rewilding circles at least like this demonizing the zoo, the human zoo, actually it's not about demonizing the city life. It's about just dismantling deconstructing ways of living that aren't really serving us in those environments and then reconnecting to ways of living that of course are more in sync with our human biology. How we can move within everyday space. If we looked at rewilding that way in the sense that I do, it's like you can rewild your movement, your gut, your sleep, you know, your everyday behaviors in those experiences. And I think that for me has been the message really and then it and then it's much more relatable, you know? I've lived in cities. I get it and I also get what it is to be a papa to four kids and have businesses in London. Sure. And still managed to carve out time to become an endurance athlete. So I'm a 100% aligned, right? I live it and I walk it, but also I have clients from all different backgrounds, all different demographics. And again, students through the billionaires, it's always the same message, right? My favorite is the example of the elder, I think is an Indian gentleman in the book. You kind of walk through how you helped him transition his life and how he kind of lived it hour by hour as an urbanite. Yes. What was that guy's name? So there's your hoodie in the book. Have you discussing your hoodie in there? He's a Jewish guy. He's Jewish. Yeah, he's he was basically brought natural birthing really into the UK. So if anyone rewired in natural birth in the UK, it's Yahoo. And he was ostracized at that time when he brought it in,
