Description

If you have ever lost weight, you’ve probably asked yourself, “When I lose weight, where does the fat go?” It is an interesting question and the fact is most health professionals cannot answer it. But I can – and will as we begin this episode. https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/26/health/lose-weight-where-does-it-go-partner/index.html

If the “lose-it-or-use-it” theory applies to anything – it applies to memory. U.S. Memory Champion Chester Santos, author of the book, Mastering Memory (https://amzn.to/2P4LTay) joins me to offer some techniques to help you improve your ability to remember names and just about everything else. In fact he takes us all on an exercise to remember a list of 15 random words and commit it to memory.

There is probably a jar of Vaseline around your house somewhere. And it turns out that Vaseline has a lot of uses and applications that you have probably never heard of. I’ll share several of the best ones in this episode. https://www.bobvila.com/slideshow/14-unusual-uses-for-vaseline-50762

While it is always great to strive for success, some people strive for nothing else. They judge everything by how much they achieve, how they look, how much money they have or how big their house is. Psychologist Dr. Arthur Ciarimicoli identified this problem and gave it a name – “Performance Addiction.” It refers to people who think achievement and success will bring them happiness. When it doesn’t, that’s when the trouble begins. Arthur not only coined the term, he is also the author of a book, called Performance Addiction (https://amzn.to/2P97r66). Arthur joins me to explain and explore this growing problem in our culture – and what can be done about it.
