Understanding the Difference between Hunger (real) and Cravings (illusion)

Hiya,

I had a very remarkable experience recently. I have been interesting in understanding more about fasting, intermittent fasting, metabolic flexibility and suchlike subjects, so last week I committed to a 5-day water only fast.

Now before I go any further, I don’t recommend you do this without supervision, so no racing off and turning off the food tap, and turning on the water tap, before you have done adequate preparation.

What i want to share in this podcast episode is one of the most profound insights from doing the fast. It was truly understanding the difference between HUNGER (a physiological ‘need’) and CRAVINGS, which it turns out are more of a psychological thing as opposed to a real or useful signal to stop us from starving to death.

Listen to my take on the difference between the two, and listen all the way to the end, so you can get your homework assignment too. It could be a game-changer for you.

Also if you need a hand making any tough decisions, now or in the near future, and want some support, ideas, and strategies, then don’t hesitate to get in touch. That truly is my specialty, and I would love to help out.

Have an great day.
Take care
Carl

FAT: The Facts and The Fiction

Hiya,

I just watched a great documentary the other night – which was free on YouTube – and called ‘Fat Fiction‘. Over the years (the last 20) I have read lots of book on health and for nutrition. This was a great presentation and collection of some of the things I have learned over the years.

It talked about the role of fat, the role of cholesterol, the obesity epidemic and some of the causal factors, and a  lot more. So do check it out. Here is the link.

The book I have read that also addressed the very important subject of our understanding of cholesterol is ‘The Great Cholesterol Myth‘ by Bowden and Sinatra (not the singer).

The other book I mentioned is by Kelly brogan MD, called ‘A Mind of Your Own‘, which I highly recommend. The book is aimed towards women with any sort of mental health issues (anxiety, depression, etc.), but it is equally insightful for the dudes. 🙂

I said you could access a FREE copy of my Audiobook version of ‘Decision Making Mastery‘ by going to this link: https://www.carlmassy.com/o/bonus/win-win-win/
(I just want more people making great decisions.

And that is all from me. 
Reach out via my contact page if you have some important decisions to make or transitions to make, as I would be happy to help out.

Have a great day.
Take care

Guided Meditation – Thank You Body

Hiya, 

In y humble opinion, doing the inner work is even more beneficial than doing the outer work in many cases. That is why my book ‘The Guidebook to Optimum Health‘ has as the subtitle ‘Why Exercise and Nutrition Alone are Not Enough‘. The inner work is essential. 

And meditation is one of those tools of inner work. 

This meditation is designed to create a positive and healing biochemistry inside the body by practicing gratitude and specifically directing that gratitude at different parts of the body. When you create the right internal environment the self-healing process happens more effectively and efficiently.  

I hope you enjoy it. 
Have a super day and take care.

Epigenetics 101 – You Have the Power

Hiya, 

So I was talking with a new colleague the other day and they were telling me a story about how they might actually ‘have’ ADHD, on account of a friend telling them they had some of the symptoms. And what came to mind to me as I was having the conversation, was that he might benefit from hearing a little bit more about the subject of…EPIGENETICS. 

It was time to learn who was really in control of our genetic destiny. 
It was time to learn just how powerful we really are. 

Find out how you can change your genetic destiny and what the field of epigenetics has taught us about the expression of our genes. 

Let me know if you have any questions, by dropping me a email, which you can do via contact page.

Please pass this episode to a friend that you think might need to be reminded about how much control of their body they actually have. 

Take care
Carl

Getting Sick Can Be a Growth Opportunity

Hiya, 

In this podcast I play with a bit of a controversial topic – the idea that getting sick (like EVERYTHING in life) can be a growth opportunity. 

I talk about my own experiences with pneumonia and pleurisy and other ailments over my 51 years and how each of them – while a bit crappy to experience at the time – have lead to personal growth, and in some cases MAJOR personal growth.

I encourage you to tune in and see what it brings up for you. 

If you have not picked up a copy of Decision Making Mastery, make sure you check out the link below. I have also completed the Audiobook version and am selling it for the same price as the paperback. Enjoy!

Have a super day.
Take care
Carl

My Number 1 Nutritional Health Tip

Hiya,

So I have always been passionate about health and well-being and in particular when it comes to optimizing our health through nutrition. My second book was ‘The Guidebook to Optimum Health’ where one of the main pillars was ‘Nutrition’ (no surprises there).

So I will share with you in this podcast the #1 thing you can do when it comes to nutrition, which will make a HUGE difference to your physical and mental health.

In the podcast I mention a couple of books. They are:

‘In Defense of Food’ by Michael Pollan
‘The Pleasure Trap’ by Lisle & Goldhamer

Also if you are ready to improve the quality of your decisions (and therefore your life), check out my latest book ‘Decision Making Mastery‘ on Amazon.

Have a fabulous day too.
Take care

Guided Meditation: Reconnecting with Nature

meditationHiya,

As you know, I am a fan of doing the inner work – especially in altered states of consciousness – in order to effect lasting change from the inside out.

I have watched over 2020, nature be vilified, where people are consciously and unconsciously encouraged to fear taking a deep breathe from mother nature. A fear of nature at an unconscious level is going to affect the way you show up.

So this guided meditation is about bringing back the sacred relationship we have with Mother Nature and reconnect with the idea that ‘life’ is for us. Life creates more life. It is nature that gives us life, so instead of fear we need deep gratitude and re-connection at a deeper (cellular) level.

I mention Dr Zack Bush in this podcast. Check out his video on the Virome on YouTube. Amazing.

Enjoy the Guided Meditation and let me know if you have any questions, comments or feedback.

Also please join me for the LIFE MASTERCLASS Seminar (Online) from 27-29 Nov. Also if you use the Coupon Code (BEAUTY) at the Check Out you get a super awesome 20% DISCOUNT!!

I hope to see you there.
Enjoy the meditation and afterwards feel free to go and hug a tree or walk barefoot on the ground.

Take care

Love, Fear, Beauty and Dumb Arse

beautyHiya,

I hope you are having a great day.

In today’s episode I was inspired by my morning bicycle ride through the rice fields and villages of Bali.

I was paying attention to the connection, interaction and feelings I was experiencing as I saw and interacted with different Indonesian people on my ride.

I was also reflecting on bank robbers and pearly whites.

Then there were thoughts about the relationship between love and fear and the physiological experiences of both – especially as it related to the brain and mind.

So as I journeyed through the rice fields in Bali, so too do I journey through love, fear, beauty and dumb-arse in this podcast.

I also mentioned a great teacher in the form of Dr Zack Bush, so check out some of his teaching too.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments by dropping me an email.

Also I have opened up registration to work with me for 6-months in 2021 with the CONSOLIDATION TO BREAK THROUGH program. There are a maximum of 8 people in the group, so if you are interested, check it out asap. 🙂

How to Create Sustainability and Avoid Overwhelm

sustainableHi there,

In today’s episode of the Life Masterclass podcast, I talk on a couple of subjects which came up in a recent Coaching Session with one of my awesome clients.

And because the topic came up in that session, and I figured it was relevant to a lot of people, I wanted to share it with you.

We talked about the idea of sustainability when it comes to this game called ‘life’. And how life is not a sprint, but more like an ultra marathon. Given that, the strategies we use in life need to reflect the format of the race we are in. It just makes sense to see it like that, and respond accordingly.

From the conversation on sustainability I move into another very relevant topic and that is about how to avoid getting into a state of overwhelm.

I finish up with a VERY practical tool I use for myself and my clients to help them avoid overwhelm and establish a sustainable, enjoyable, and fulfilling life.

And as always if you have any questions for me, or would like to do some deeper work with me to help you through some current challenges, don’t hesitate to reach out via my contact page on my website or sending me a direct email (carl@carlmassy.com).

Have a fabulous and fantastic day.
Take care
Carl
