As Dads, we are pulled in several different directions. We have work, family time, household responsibilities, homework, sporting events with our kids…our list is endless. Is it possible to take just a small amount of time (just 30 minutes) to attend to our own health? For some of us, taking 30 minutes per day would seem like a daunting task or maybe even selfish. Part of being the best versions of ourselves means having the healthiest body and mind possible. With out those two critical components, we can become over stressed, tired, and burnt out.

The Realistic Way to Transform Your Body

The Realistic Way to Transform Your Body This Year with Josiah Novak

Probably the biggest thing we try to fix in the new year is our health. We set goals to lose weight and tone up, but we tend to fail year after year. Being in optimum shape is important to being a good father, husband, and man. If you listen to this show, this could be the year you actually stick to your health resolutions once and for all.

Josiah Novak is the host of The Fit Man Project podcast and the founder of True Transformation. He is back to tell us why we keep failing at our health resolutions and the secrets to creating a plan that we can succeed at.

Get ready to transform your body in 2018 and beyond!

Don’t be afraid to sit down and create a plan, and don’t be afraid to reach out for help. – @JosiahFitness #NewYears #resolutions #men #dads #fathers #2018 #fitness Click To Tweet

 

Heads up: The name of the show for 2018 will be changed to the Dad Edge Podcast. There will be no change in the content or the website, just the new show name and logo. Let us know how you like it!

Josiah Novak

Josiah Novak has been a guest on The Good Project several times. Josiah came from four generations of divorce and abuse. As an adult, he went through a tough time with weight gain and depression. At one point, he was even suicidal. Josiah used fitness to get through living in a dark place.

Josiah didn’t have a father to look up to and it’s his mission is to change the legacy that he comes from and help other people do the same by establishing a foundation of health.

If we’re taking care of our health, we have a much better chance of coming out on top when it comes to the legacy we leave behind. – @JosiahFitness #men #dads #fathers #fitness Click To Tweet

Drowning in Distraction? Optimize Your Morning Routine

Drowning in Distraction? Optimize Your Morning Routine

We live in a world where we are drowning in distraction. It seems that everything is fighting for our attention. This causes our minds to become over-stimulated and reactionary.

  • Try to remember your dreams
  • Make your bed
  • Brush your teeth with opposite hand
  • Drink water
  • Do deep breathing exercises
  • Take a cold shower
  • Make a brain tea
  • Exercise
  • Gratitude
  • Make a brain power smoothie
  • Create a “not to do” list

Announcement: We are changing the name of the podcast in a couple weeks to the Dad Edge Podcast. There will be no change in the content or the website. You’ll just see the new show name and logo.

Turn On Your Superhero Brain with Jim Kwik

Turn On Your Superhero Brain with Jim Kwik


In this modern age, we are bombarded with information and distractions. Our brain is not prepared to handle the constant interruptions from our computers and mobile devices. Do you feel overwhelmed and distracted? Are you agitated and anxious? Then you will get a ton of value from our guest today.

Jim Kwik is the founder of Kwik Learning and is a specialist in speed reading, memory improvement, brain performance, and accelerated learning. He is an advisor to many of the worlds’ CEOs, entrepreneurs, and celebrities. He is also  the host of Kwik Brain podcast, the #1 training show on iTunes, and is the creator of online courses that are used around the world.

Jim Kwik tells us his story from being learning-challenged due to a brain injury to being one of the most sought after learning coaches in the world. He also shares with us how to avoid mental exhaustion and his 10-step morning routine to create optimum brain power!

Today, you’re not paid for your brute strength, but your brain strength. It’s not your muscle power, it’s your mind power. The faster you can learn the faster you can earn. – @JimKwik #learning #success #brain Click To Tweet

Jim Kwik

Jim Kwik suffered and accident that left him with brain damage at age five. He couldn’t focus in school and didn’t understand what was being taught. Teachers had to repeat themselves over and over again until he was so ashamed he had to pretend he was learning. He remembers very clearly overhearing his teacher say to another adult, “that’s the boy with the broken brain.”

But Jim didn’t give up.He had difficulty learning to read, but he was inspired by comic books and the concept that one person could make a difference. Like the super heroes in his favorite stories, he was determined to triumph over his adversity. He devoted himself to solving the riddle of how his brain worked and used his experiences to create strategies to dramatically enhance his mental performance.

He has since dedicated his life to helping others unleash their true genius and brainpower to learn anything faster and live a life of greater power, productivity, and purpose.

If there is one skill to master in the 21st century it's your ability to learn faster. – @JimKwik #technology #performance #brain #productivity Click To Tweet
