Habits of Highly Effective Real People by Chris Guillebeau
"Habits of highly effective real people by Chris Gil Abo-. Of Chris GIL ABODE DOT COM. Quote. Everybody talks about wanting to change things and help and fix. But ultimately, all you can do is fix yourself and that's a lot because if he can fix herself, it has a ripple effect. Rob Reiner. Humans are not machines and we don't all want the same things but we do want to do something purposeful to use the time we have to the best of our ability and we also long to discover our authentic selves. If our lives consists of series of choices, how do you highly effective real people make them he is a short list of characteristics for your consideration. First and foremost they know what's important to them. I've been saying for a while the greatest productivity hack is to love what you do. It is much much easier to be both productive and satisfied. When you spend most of your time on something, you find meaningful often go back to this principle as a compass point it really does no good at all to become efficient at the wrong things on balance is actually negative because the fish and you become the more likely it is that you'll continue on the wrong path. Therefore, it's better to fail quickly at the wrong things seeking discover the right once. They decide for themselves before other people decide for them. Highly, effective real people tend to be questioners. The don't accept what they are told at face value even examine their own beliefs if inconsistencies and opportunities for improvement whenever someone asks, you can have a or B, which do you want Davin respond by saying I'd like see please visit hard at first because easier as you gain experience if to understand that throughout your. Life, there will always be people who want to decide on your behalf. They have their own because they to our human. They care about themselves more than the care about you to be effective to do what matters to you and to pursue the right more on that. In a moment, you need to resist external expectations that don't apply to you. Only, when you have your own house in order, can you operate effectively with others because otherwise will be open to manipulation and misdirection? They take time to enjoy life in whatever way makes sense to them. Even, though they are highly effective, these real people aren't afraid to spend time on hobbies or different interests. As the saying goes time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time and that's the key point time they enjoy wasting maybe of a weird hobby or maybe your idea of fun is different from other people's who cares do whatever you need to recharge and regroup. In. Conversations they listen. They don't just think about what they're going to say next listening is an underrated skill yet, it's easy to develop just start doing it. Empathy takes practice sometimes it's helpful to repeat back with someone says not robotically but in more of a I wanNA make sure I understand this way over time you can also learn to listen not only to what is said but what is unsaid and sometimes more important. They learn what time is best to wake up and go to sleep. Is Not. The same for everyone was my number one takeaway from reading Dan Pink's when zone lot more in the book of course. But that concept stuck with me more than anything else once they know their ideal rhythms, they try to stick to them making exceptions only occasionally sure is fun to change things up now and then but if you operate most effectively according to a certain routine, you'll be most effective when you stick with it. Highly, effective real people embrace goals. Goals vary and some might not even call them goals but the consistently worked toward something. They know that the process is more important than actually achieving the goals. But to have the process, you have to have an end point to look towards goals are the tangible expressions of values while we decide are important to us, and therefore the choices we make each day how the effect of real people know the actions they take on one day will affect the opportunities available to them in the future. Should they live long enough to see it? Lastly, they find a balance between service and self care. Highly effective real people that life isn't all about them. They WANNA serve others however they can. They want to make a difference as consider their goals, values and decisions. This value is always present. Yet Mitt is an exclusive chop rate most effectively in life and to get what you really want. You'll need to think about yourself not every goal is to be perfectly aligned with what it produces for other people. Personal growth comes through challenge. It all these the overall philosophy of nonconformity. You can do good things for others and yourself at the same time it's not a dichotomy or an either or. I don't think I'm always highly effective person though I tried to always be a real one when if you'll off track I, go back to some of these points especially those about being intentional making my own choices also try to remember the universal truths changes constant. Is. Temporary. So once again, how the effect of real people seek to use whatever time they have to the best of their ability?
In MegaMerger, Teladoc Buys Diabetes Coaching Company for $18 Billion
"Yesterday we told you about one industry that appears to be forever changed by the pandemic, the oil and gas business. Well, here's another healthcare. These days make a doctor's appointment and it says likely to occur on your screen as in an office maybe even more likely virtual appointments were on the rise before covid nineteen but the pandemic put this trend on steroids telehealth use tripled as the virus spread around the globe according to a healthcare research firm called. Robo Global. Half of adults age twenty five and older have virtually visited a healthcare provider over the last few painful months. The firm says music to the ears of anyone who runs a telehealth company more than half of those patients were brand new to telemedicine can handle one more statistic well, nine out of ten of those patients told Robo. that. They'd be happy to see Dr Virtual again most likely that include you. So why am I telling you all this or because at least two companies are making big hey from this socially distanced phenomenon last week telemedicine leader Tele Doc announced it's buying Digital Health, coaching? Company. Forget this eighteen and a half billion dollars. It's rare to see those kinds of numbers. Even in Silicon Valley acquisitions, although there are many privately owned telemedicine companies, Tele Doc which was founded in two thousand and two is the only publicly traded one because of the pandemic business is booming in early March, the company was conducting about ten thousand remote medical appointments a day just a month. Later, that number had doubled. The company told The Wall Street Journal. Tele Doc is purchasing a company called the von. Go using Technology Levin go remotely monitors and coaches patients with chronic illnesses. CEO Glenn Tolman founded the company after his young son was diagnosed with type one diabetes. The Condition Levin go is best known for the publicly traded company later expanded to help care for people suffering from chronic problems like high blood, pressure, anxiety, and depression. According to CNBC Tele Doc had long planned to add services for remotely managing chronic conditions and La. bongos leaders had been thinking about moving into telehealth. The two companies quote were either on a path of convergence or collision Tele Doc CEO Jason Gora Vic told. CNBC. Industry publication healthcare dive calls the do the country's first digital health megamerger and by far the largest consider this Google is working on an acquisition a fitbit for what now looks like a meager two billion dollars the trade publication points out. The TALLADEGA deal is set to close by the end of the year proved it'll create an entity worth thirty, seven, billion dollars expected revenues in its first year with top a billion dollars or almost double the two companies sales this year sound promising well, not so fast Wall Street dinged both company's stock prices saying the price was inflated and that telehealth might be an covert bubble. which wants the pandemic finally, Wayne's could pop furthermore there are plenty of challenges on both sides. Tell dot faces a host of telemedicine rivals such as privately held doctor on demand but perhaps the bigger issue is that the eye-popping size of the deal could create copycats other big healthcare companies both virtual and traditional have probably already started shopping for their own remote chronic care management acquisitions. The stock price of Levine go rival Barrio health, which also manages chronic illnesses spiked almost thirty percent following the news. But let's get real. What could all this mean for most of us? One Stop Virtual healthcare management that's at least part of the answer, your blood pressure spikes you'll see it on your digital sensor and maybe through that same device, your virtual doctor will be contacted automatically if it gets bad enough, it's a future that could be more convenient, less personal, not very private and very lucrative for digital health entrepreneurs.

Can Your Diet Help Reduce Stress?
"What nutritional things can we do to help our stress levels and what can we do about the belly fat that being more stressed makes us onto. Well Kristen is not the only one feeling more stressed. In recent months the American Psychological Association conducts an annual poll to gauge overall stress levels in the population and the specific things that people are stressed about change from year to year. But the overall level of stress remains fairly constant even in the best of times, the majority of Americans report living with moderate to high levels of stress and they feel that their stress levels aren't healthy. Well, not surprisingly a new poll conducted in April and May of twenty twenty found that reported stress levels have jumped up considerably in response to the global. Pandemic. As. Many of us know all too well reaching for sweets or other comfort foods is a typical coping mechanism when we're stressed and with many people cooped up at home stress and boredom eating is definitely on the rise leading to weight gain, and if that weren't bad enough research does suggest that when we're stressed those comfort calories may lead to weight gain more quickly because of those high cortisol levels that Kristen mentioned. A couple of months ago I actually gave an online workshop with some strategies to help reduce stress eating, and if you missed that the replay is still available, you can access that at way less dot life slash healthy at home way last life slash healthy at home for some strategies to reduce stress eating. But wouldn't it be great if there were foods or nutrients that could defuse anxiety and ward off the negative effects of daily stress? No wonder I see. So many magazine and Web articles about Stress Busting Foods. Unfortunately, a lot of these are just puff pieces with little to no scientific basis sometimes, however, journalists will interview actual scientists about the research. The problem is that researchers often use that word stress to means something very different than what the general population of stress and that often leads to confusion. When we say we're stressed. We usually mean that we feel overwhelmed or anxious too many demands, deadlines and worries and not enough time money and energy to get it all done. Researchers on the other hand often measure physiological stress responses which don't necessarily correspond to our psychological experience. So when they report that food or a nutrient has an effect on stress that doesn't necessarily mean that you will feel better or. When you eat it let me just give you one example. In a story on the connection between Diet and stress researcher Robert. Ludwig told the morning edition about an experiment that he did on obese teenage boys in which the boys who eight highly processed cereal for breakfast had higher levels of Adrenaline, which is a stress hormone. Then those who ate a high protein breakfast instead. And the boys who ate more protein were also less hungry and they ate fewer calories at lunch. So chalk one up for a high protein breakfast. Unfortunately nobody asked the boys about their mood or how stressed they fell. So we don't know whether those different breakfast meals had any effect on whether they felt any more or less stressed. Nonetheless, if you had heard that piece on the radio, you probably would have concluded as did the reporter that eating lots of refined carbs and sugar will make you feel more stressed and anxious. But hang on just a minute because in her book, the Serotonin powered Diet Dr Judas Werthmann claims that a big dose of refined carbohydrates is exactly what you should eat to feel more relaxed and happy, and that's because refined carbohydrates promote the production of Serotonin, a feel good neurotransmitter. So which is it are we supposed to eat carbs or are we supposed to avoid them to beat stress? Will the reason that these two scientists seem to be contradicting one? Another is that they're measuring completely different things. Ludwig is looking at the effect of Diet on adrenal hormones and Workman is describing the effect of Diet on neurotransmitters of the to neuro transmitters probably have a closer relationship to our mood. Nonetheless I. Think the disadvantages of Workmen's approach outweigh. The benefits eating refined carbohydrates may temporarily boost your serotonin levels after all. That's probably why we crave them when we feel down. But they also send your blood sugar, insulin energy and appetite on a roller coaster ride and riding that rollercoaster on a regular basis is a good way to increase your risk of type two diabetes and heart

Pew Research's Latinx Survey
"We're dropping a quick conversation because pew research came out with a poll survey results regarding the use of Latin necks. There's a report that's on Latino rebels dot com I mean, it's Pew Research. It's legit as they say. And I wanted to connect with one of the principals at Pew Research who does amazing work in Latino Latino Latina next community has that all of you who say, Hispanic there I said it and it's Mark Google Lopez I connected with him over the phone about this survey. And the findings, and here's the conversation that we had. Working a little bit director of Global Migration in Monarchy Research and research center before meter. Hispanic research. So This is an interesting survey that came out what are the biggest signings I know there's the headlines but. then. We're GONNA share the report I've read it, but you seeing information that junior team Found like what are the biggest findings that but the biggest takeaways that people should know about the service? the. Station. Washing. Their. Lack natural. The term let some we asked directly have you heard of the term maximum about three four with No they haven't and people have. Relatively few US. If. You found out about three percent total of all. told. US The next. Stuff. Interesting. About this is that in contrast to? You're sitting growing used across the university news media corporate on in the corporate world as well. I. Can we hear see more and more use of? Even. Greater move friend search for back. Also just turn rising but the people who right to us. People. America? Generally are aware of. So. Kids to stick on that because. But it's safe to say. At least the overall population, but there are distinct. Differences across age groups right. I mean, what can you? Can you just break down of the age because I think one of the things about this is that people say generous But how generation were really is it is my question. The. Term is more common among those who are younger than it is among those who suffered able. To. Twenty. Nine Point two percent say that they started. Trying to get the people who are just thinking five older blessedly ten percent has term platinum at so the. Thirty. Eight, it also ties to education those you have a degree or doctor collars or heart intelligent more versus term for example, than those. And those who speak English for where US border also more aware turning insist those were immigrants or Spanish. Yeah. That's that's interesting. There's so many still intrigued by all this because. You know we've been covering this issue for. Like six years and not merely it has a controversy. Has I think last year was almost like political undertones with to when you have president candidates who was using like Elizabeth Warren and and and then checking backlash The. But in terms of did you guys also asked about the perception of the term whether it has a positive or negative connotation or Is it really mourn burrowing versus you know? Being that's been year a couple of generations like what I'm trying to find the nuances as well because I know I know what the takeaway is mark, but I'm I was like digging the the what was under the hood. A great question. You didn't that question directly but we. Heard of Churn wasn't sort of means to. Me when they hear. And the single most comedy open any response In response. Is Insanity for what? People heard about. It that way. So we also found there were some people who were. And sure the term and really. Heard of the term, but there was also nice Flown. Says, for example that they disappeared his life insurance. Number of reasons some of that is a little bit about It doesn't work in. Sanish. A political term. And back need people who? Insured her Democrats. Are More likely to turn the Republicans and Democrats are more like US republican inner sample because there are a variety of reaction to directly to the fresh. Would you have? People. To pretty clearly, they did not like turn downturn problematic for a number re.
7 Little Known Copywriting Hacks
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su. Today. We are going to talk about seven little. No. In copywriting hacks and kneels GonNa Start I with any, you're gonna Homey Star I. Okay. So number one, what's funny is most people being by copy like, Oh, I want to be amazing like Ogilby for. Oh. I wish I can have my words to slow super smoothly from just like how Frank Kern does it. So the first copy I have for you is you don't need to be amazing writer the key to converting in getting people to renew your copying buying becoming a lead is actually answering What issue someone may have when on your landing or potentially buying, you answer those objections. A good example of this is you can use survey monkey hot, whatever you want type farm to survey people on your page, find out what issues they have an integrate those within your copy answered, their objections to suck at writing more conversions. All right number two. So when I'm writing I like using sentiment analysis tool, so you can just sent him an analysis, but put him whatever copy you have whether it's a headline or maybe it's Longer form thing, and you just dump it in there and basically score how positive or negative your content is an in general. If I'm trying to write an ad I wanted to be generally more positive. I. Don't like to induce too much fear. Yes. Fear is certainly one emotion you can tap into, but the Jenner I tried to look for positivity. So just go sentiment analysis tool. The third copy hacked that I have for you is all about showing the right copy at the right time. So for example, you have a Webinar may have copied that convinces people to watch your Webinar. If someone doesn't attend your women but registered you wanNA email him copies about the missing the Webinar. In the next, they can go and watch the Webinar if they watch the Webinar ended in by you can have copy answering. Answering objections on why most people don't buy and results would get the by your art service. So figure out what copy you need a in each place to maximize your conversions and have it there. It's not about how smooth you're right. It's about answering objections at the right time in the right place. Number four is create a swipe file. What I mean by that. If you are scrolling through Instagram, you're scrolling through facebook and. And you see in that stops you that is known as a pattern interrupt. So what you should do there is if you actually like the ad and if you think you can draw some inspiration from it, save it, you can save these ads, put him into a collection, and then from there, the beauty of that is you can refer back to these ads, and then you can draw without having to create something from. From scratch, if you see headlines that you like put him into a swipe file, you WANNA create a entire swipe folder where you just pull inspiration from and you don't necessarily need to try to reinvent the wheel here. You can go swipe dot co to try to pull more inspiration. They have great long-form landing pages and sales letters in there. Just don't try to do everything on your own draw from lean on other people. People right stat under shoulders, and you're going to be fine as Ogilby said, and this gets into number five. As we said, eighty cents of the dollar spot on the headline. So what I want you to do is come up with multiple headline variations, fair copy, and you want to try to figure out which headline resonates the most deal customer. You can either upload look like audiences Melissa onto facebook and run ads with. Different. Different headline variations see which one gets the most cooks. All right. Number six for me would be using the framework from breakthrough advertising. So breakthrough advertising still think it's a really great book and you can get it for about one hundred, twenty, five bucks now, I google it, and so here's the framework, the life cycle or from someone going from the top to the bottom when people interact with you, a customer interacts with you. You is usually start unaware, and then they become probably wear. Then they become aware of a solution than your solution, and then you can make an offer to them. So think about that, you can use DA right awareness, interest, decision action, kind of similar, but unaware problem where solution where your solution, and then you give him off i. that is basically how you take from top to bottom when you're trying to actually get the. The convert this framework actually provides to go in with a video can go in with a sales letter can go within a long form. Add. It works really well,
OMEGA League News
"So let's just brush up real quick on the. Omega. League action that you and I have been casting. We actually only have one day left which makes me really sad for us for us. Yes. which Thursday the group still have more to go. Yeah. So we're right now we're casting the divine league. And then afterward done casting I believe the group stage for the big boys tier one teams begin. But the game have been a lot of fun. And I've enjoyed casting with you as usual. Centerman do you have anything to games that we've witnessed so far? I think there's been quite a lot of relatively one sided or one sided games. I think is quite big span in teams in quality of teams in these qualifiers in the immortal equal which recast earlier on There was definitely a pretty big difference another during the divinely the differences probably get an even bigger where some of the teams that may be just made were just short of getting into mortal now stomping in the divine league. So. Sarah, we'll see how it all plays out Of course, like you said, the the big immortal leak with the big teams starting August fourteenth and it will be covered from. Ukraine where quite a lot of time has flown in and gone through. Extensive Corona testing and everything to be there on site because obviously traveling internationally right now is really difficult but they've made it work. Ethic. Americans apparently because the talent American of shocked. Yeah. It's pretty it's pretty unusual So yet they found a way to make it work, which is impressive. So hats off as always to to the boys over at we play and epicenter who are working together on this as far as I'm aware. Nip Yeah should be should be cool like I said I think was last episode of the episode before once mortally starts on August fourteenth this might be the best tournament for the rest of the year. With the current global lookout it's hard to say if we're going to get an actual land for the rest of the year, maybe we will have one. but in terms of online, there are so many good teams in the Western. In the Western mortal division at least. the Asian tournament doesn't have. Or, the Asian turn is done. First of all is no way does not done nevermind his starts it's it's been running since August I but their playoffs are August seventeen to twenty seconds. So there's also going to be Asia's going by that. Some. The Western tournament is a stacked secret navy liquid. VP flight. Moon. EEG. G. IS PLAYING OG alliance, `Nigma. NRP and then the two qualifying teams, which we can now say qualified from the immoral qualify are five men who many will not know by name because it's a totally new stack, which is ace Chessy, Zubay, misery, and pilot die, and then Vikings Dot g g who most people know by. Now as the there's five men coaching in the immortals and divine there's five comrades not to be confused, of course, different team too early, which we cast yesterday, which includes the likes of exotic deer, which one name I did recognize and my personal favorite name divide. Lama. Might be the best name anyone in Doda right now I really like saying that name over and over. Games have been fun to cast I I'm GONNA kind of. I think I've said this before but it feels like I'm not playing as much Doda as of recently. Because there hasn't really been a pass that it's Kind. Of inspired confidence. Maybe that's not the right word is kind of like. I mean, have you even playing Doda as well? I believe a lot of world of warcraft. Tell me at least that's your excuse. Every time I invite you to play something. Sorry. Very busy but casting has it's still I find it really fun. I'm enjoying a lot. Even, Really Fox up my schedule

Yet to give you a little bit of background, my wife and I wanted to come to South America for quite a while. So let's say five six years where we've really been like South America let's go. We've still never touch the continent. One of the reasons was we are not and naturally very cautious people but because we were trying to have kids and Zeke was happening and all that kind of stuff especially down in Brazil we kind of thought well, we can put it off like if we don't have to go and I know Uruguay was not Zico hotbed. But of course, if we go there, we wanted to go to Argentina Brazil. So we kinda just kept putting it off, putting it off, putting it off. And now we're recording during covert times if you're listening in the future hopefully, you're out of it by then. But yeah. Now, of course, as an American can't really go there. So. I would have if you had spoken to me five or six years ago than I would have said to you that you have to come anyway for your entire vacations to Uruguay 'cause there's so much to do and enough of people thinking that it says side from Argentina or Brazil. Okay. So I would have said that immediately and I also would have said to you that you know Zeka. Zero cases here and that Uruguay has great public health policies, and in fact, right now we are kind of like one the stock countries in Latin America regarding the virus
White People Go to Rehab, Black People Go to Jail
"Hi Everyone. Welcome to recovery. Happy Hour where we talk about life beyond the bottle and what happens after we stopped drinking. If you listen closely, you can hear my neighbor's dogs barking amp dishwasher running. Thank you for joining me. On today's episode, we've got Amy Dresner I have been following amy since I read her fantastic memoir, my fair junkie in two thousand seventeen have always wanted to have her on the podcast, but I never asked because she's on like every podcast. So I figured she'd just be tired of them by now. And there are two things I need to say about that last sentence one is that her memoir is freaking great. It's hilarious. It's heart wrenching. It's shocking and I personally believe that have to find a way to laugh at life starker moments or else you'll go crazy. The other thing is I didn't reach out to amy to talk about my fair junkie. I. Actually reached out after she wrote an article called white people go to Rehab. Black people go to jail. I run the article and the stories are all told by people of Color. It's well researched and amy's voice really isn't a huge part of it. You can't argue the fact that people of color are incarcerated for drug offenses at a rate. That's not proportionate to those of white people, and if you're listening to the show right now because you want tips on recovery I promise you, they're coming up, got good stuff coming later on, but just listen to these statistics. Okay. For example, nonviolent block criminals stay in prison for about the same length of time as violent white criminals. Here are some other interesting facts to listen to white people are more likely than black and connects people to sell drugs yet, the racist consume drugs at similar rates. According to drug policy. Dot. Org. Nearly eighty percent of people in federal prison and almost sixty percent in state prison for drug offenses are black or Latin X in addition research shows that prosecutors are twice as likely to pursue a mandatory minimum sentence for black people as for white people charged with the same offence. In two, thousand, ten per one, hundred, thousand people in the American population, an average of four, hundred and fifty white people were incarcerated. An average of eight hundred, thirty, one Hispanic people were incarcerated. And an average of two, thousand, three, hundred, and six black people more incarcerated. So. What are these statistics say? Well, they can mean a lot of things. Not realizing that everybody with drug offence has an issue with substance abuse, but the likelihood is higher. So we've got a large number of people incarcerated who suddenly been pulled away from their drug of choice or their alcohol inner sitting and waiting to get out. There's Rehab in prison. There's no recovery resources. You know there's no accountability groups nothing. Occasionally, twelve step meetings happened in prison. So we've got one fundamental method of recovery occasionally being brought to them. So. Once you strip away the privilege of the basics like personal freedom. You don't get any recovery while you're in jail, you're just expected to be absent and that's it. You know related to this topic is also the lack of resources for people with substance use disorder once they're released from jail or prison. This too is a problem that's likely not going away anytime soon, like check this out, did you know that former inmates are one hundred and twenty, nine percent more likely to die within two weeks of release due to overdose? Lack of treatment during incarceration and tolerance levels being so low after a period of absence plays a huge part in that. And also, overdose is the number one cause of death for former inmates. I hear this and my heart breaks. You know because as if recovery isn't hard enough having to recover while you're locked up with zebra resources. That can basically be a death sentence. This relates to our topic on because big picture. We're sentencing white people less giving them more opportunity and privilege to seek out recovery and sentencing people of color more and essentially starving them if any opportunity to recover. Does that sound as backwards to you as it does to me.

"Let's rewind a bit and go too little too. When you were growing up because I think it's fair to say, isn't it? When you growing up, you get all these stereotypes sort of enforced on. You don't you. You tend to remember my mother trying to get to wear a skirt wants to wait because she said, that's what girls. Whether it was a big row over that but it was a similar things going on in your household was trying to push the binary on you in some way or my my dad more than my moment, which is weird because when I came out and she did not react well. But when I was little like that was absolutely no an issue we had addressing boggs and like my favorite thing in the dressing boggs was elected. ABC's leopard-print should neely. The Laurie. Today. And it had a goat trim round the neck, and then I think, yeah. HOW SPLIT IN IT? You know I think I'd say go it was a sleeveless dress with gold trim I mean tacky as hell. So Takeda's. But that was my favorite. Yeah absolutely. Follow I. Loved it. I. Felt it was you know this is yes. I love my life I. Always Been Dressing Up Anyway Kate and hasn't been a big deal but then I remember Ed once we have play room I. Mean we're so big class cry you play. So. I remember putting all these dresses on and then going in and feel like look I got all these silly clothes on on my dad's face was he was just like incandescent and just went very nice and. It was like seething. That was that I think the first time that I remember. Thinking Oh there's something wrong doing this you know dot doesn't like it but I don't know why my experience my father is he's very much generation of men were they weren't taught how to talk about their feelings or talk or express emotion in any other way than anger. At how old would you have been? Then I think I was about four five hours really. And then the you go I, guess you getting any attitude, the playground for not conforming to agendas wineries. Yet not conforming with definitely for me it wasn't such a thing at junior school lower. The thing like junior school that just didn't didn't seem factor into people's hey. So, you know Judy School for me. Actually it was a really happy time. I felt well-supported where the no case. But somehow they didn't seem to have that much of an impact on me Oh my thinking or any of that stuff. So every time at school are is singing in the choir. I was in the you know the little school show I was leading. Violin. Bali class. So I was just on cut fruit loop. Any moment are get. That's why I was kind of confused was. She reacted really badly when I came out, but she'd never kind of held me back from doing any of those things. You know if ever there was a little quaint okayed it with me. You know I was like the absolute stereotype epitome of Funky Little A. The. loafing Barbra Streisand, get me that Bob predicts and on the radio I love a all of this like this song, my brothers and sisters used to sing to me all the time in the car was. So my show you've got it the. Match and I was like, okay why are they singing they? Sit Me Oh, it's because I'm not.

The Why and How of Self Care by Randi Kay
"The why and how of Self Care Iran decay of Naturally Randy K. dot com. As you can gather, I think a lot about taking care of yourself and I care a lot about it. I WANNA shout about it from the rooftops I wanna hug you and bless you with self care blessings. I WanNa grab your shoulders, shake you while I yell how important it is in your face. But. I shall take a more humble right in a blog route at the moment and a little deeper into why it's important and some simple ways to get started. Talk to yourself. Our bodies are constantly communicating the different body systems working together the body language we exude or verbal conversations, but one of the most important conversations that we tend to neglect his consciously checking in with ourselves. I wrote a few posts ago about negative self-talk and start gently changing that conversation with ourselves. But along with that, there is the honest feedback conversation because something like this hey body mind or soul how're you doing today? What do you need? How can I help this whole day after? And then taking the time to listen for me some of those answers tend to be something like this Mo-. Hey, girl thanks for checking in. May I'm doing pretty good but my name and upper back heard a little I think he slept Kinda funny. You should do those and neck and shoulder stretches that I like Owen though he totally loved those cupcakes from Nicole's last night. My Tummy hurts meet a little lighter today Okay Mogi cool and by the way you are the bees. It may seem silly and he may feel like you've got a little goal homes Megan Combo going but it's K- keep going with it and you will come to cherish that daily inner dialogue I have come to not being able to function without it. Movement does your body good. This may seem like an obvious one but your body needs to move and yes, it moves all the time but we need that time of intentional movement, the benefits of exercise and stretching are endless and yes, we all know them. But seriously folks if we don't stretch and move and tend to our aches and pains, it can lead to incredibly negative and serious consequences. A favorite quote of mine that is known in the Yoga therapy world is quote if you listen to your body whisper, then you don't have to hear it scream and quote. And that touches on my first daily Combo point as well. Those first twinges and whispers of body discomfort is our bodies way of warning us saying, Hey, let's do something about this or else is going to get worse and lead to a torn rotator cuff or knee injury or heart attack or who knows what else. One of my favorite quotes is by core fusion co founder Fred veto quote. Embrace movement as an essential part of being alive and quote. We were created, sit at desks and stare at screens for eight plus hours a day. I'll save the soapbox for another time. But Self Care is how he counter that ever increasing way of life. And if you are up and moving for most of your day, self cares how we create some stillness and more therapeutic movement inhabits. Fill your own cup I save something to pour. In Our culture, there is glorification of busy. There's a glorification of sacrifice and struggle while I think being busy and sacrificing and struggling or important parts of life in their own ways is gonNA balance of heard almost every excuse in the book as to why people can't do self care is so hard with kids they need me I never get a moment to myself. I don't have time at work. So tired by the end of the day, my dog ate my homework. Okay. Not that last one but they all. Sound, like silly excuses to me what people don't understand, and this is usually the self care point that makes me wanNA shake people yell in a loving way. Of course, is that by taking time for yourself every day even if it's just five minutes of debriefing and grounding will make you a better partner parent friend employer employee everything you need to fill your own cup. If you really want to be the person you want to be in the world, you must take those sacred moments to yourself to take good care. And not only will you be able to serve others better you'll have valuable coping tools like healthy body, healthy breathing habits, self love, and confidence etc to deal with stresses in Traumas that will happen in life. In Summary To put it all onto a sweet-smelling glossy package check in with yourself daily to receive guidance on how to move and stretch and care to yourself. So you can be that kick angle force in the world. You've got a lot to do my friend. Please please set yourself up for success and enjoying the journey of life with a self care practice, and if my reasons don't do it for you tune into your own why put some love and motivation behind those should in your I know I should do this conversation.

This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Ari Shapiro, and Mary Louise Kelley in an exceedingly rare move special counsel. Robert Muller's office has put out a statement tonight pushing back on a big story from BuzzFeed that story alleges that President Trump personally ordered his longtime lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen to lie to congress about a perspective business deal in Moscow, which if true raises all kinds of questions about obstruction of Justice. But Muller's office says and their statement is just one sentence. I'm going to read it in full, quote, buzzfeed's description of specific statements to the special counsel's office and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office regarding Michael Cohen's. Congressional testimony are not accurate BuzzFeed is standing by its story. And I am joined now by their editor in chief Ben Smith been thanks for man. Glad to have you with us. What's your response to the statement tonight? From his office. Really hard to respond to that statement. Because it's it's not clear just doesn't fit all make clear what they're objecting to in the story. It's certainly not a full throated denial that they also obviously have some characterization that they're objecting to, but it's when we would really urge them to reveal which characterization because it's very hard to respond to and in the meantime, we are as we have been for more than a year continuing to report on unin particular disorder, which is really the arc of the Trump Moscow project. Your story hangs on to sources who you identify as federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter, can you give us anymore detail about these sources, and what gives you confidence that they are eight telling the truth and be in a position to know what they're talking about. All I can say is that we're not playing games with that characterization as I guess sometimes I mean, these are exactly as described federal law enforcement officials involved in the investigation and well-placed to know what is going on inside. I think the other sources have there. Check out before. I don't think I can talk more specifically about these sources, but what I can say is that these reporters and the remarkable track writer these specific reporters in these stories, we were the first to reveal the details of the plan to build a a huge Trump Tower outside Moscow are reporting then wound up essentially being the mirror prefiguring. The Cohen indictment. Many months later, we then broke the story that Crump had also offered or planned to offer Putin the penthouse of this building. So this is a long line of reporting these reporters on the specific story that we feel very good about very confident about your story suggests that these sources are not just relying on something they overheard. But that there are underlying documents emails text messages other things can you give us any detail about that. As we reported in the store based in based on these sources, the the special counsel has access to documents that that. Support this narrative, the Donald Trump. Directed. Michael Cohen to lie to congress about in particular, the timing of the Russian invest of this of this Moscow project, and there's no dispute that did lie. Do you have access to these documents? Have your your reporters seen them? I don't think I want to go beyond. What it what it said? In the story. Let me in the time we have left if you gotta do over would you change a single word of the story. We are very eager to hear from the special counsel what they're objecting to and are, of course, always open to new information to a corrections to things like that. But that the onus here's really on them to explain what they're talking about the story as written stance. Yes. Absolutely. Ben Smith, he is editor in chief of BuzzFeed.

Most contentious power struggle back at the start of the shutdown last month, the White House thought Nancy Pelosi would be more willing to cut a deal on the border wall. After she secured the votes to become speaker again, North Carolina Republican congressman Mark meadows, tried to tell them. They were wrong. I told them then I reiterated now her being willing to negotiate had nothing to do with the speaker's gavel. The White House may have underestimated Pelosi, but conservatives like meadows never did.

And by the way, when I was up this weekend that that guys sitting next to me to my right? Ninety nine percent of scientists settled there gray. It's real it's like what? No, they don't know. They they don't that's a lie straight up Y. But anyway, he goes through in new not that guy. Jasper in new American how climate change straight up is. And he goes through chapter and verse with all of the the the the the tick points if you going to have a religion. What would you need to have a religion everything from the the priests documents all that the the the rituals? He goes to all of it, and there's more than that. And every bit of it.

I know I explained the only way you're going to get through to Mitch McConnell as you as as Mark did. And it's got you've got a call that number to the White House when you get through you tell the person at the White House. I want to be connected with the Senate because I've called the Senate, and I can't get through and they will hook you into where you get through. Okay. I'll do that. Because I tried the Mitch number and winds up in a record record. It winds up them telling you in a recording that this mailbox is full by the right? I hate that. I hate if you're a person with a cellphone any type and your message as I'm sorry. It is mailboxes not set up or worse. Those mailbox is full. What are you thinking? Hours are nine to four when you can call in. Yeah. Okay. Well, tomorrow again that number two zero two four or five six one four one four is the White House, I pointed, but the reason you're calling that is because they will put you through to a working number in the Senate that actually works while you'll be able to talk somebody about Mitch McConnell in his office. What I'll do I appreciate it got a restaurant recommendation or should I save that for another call? Now, we always talk about food. I'm thinking about by the way, people you're listening.

It's that real and here's the deal. I didn't look in the kitchen now may be the case, but they have city chicken there. And I mean, it's really good anybody. That knows city chicken knows what I'm talking about. You do it. Right. It's a religious experience. Is it on a stick? Yup. Dude. It's city chicken. Of course, it's not. Absolutely.
