How To Add 10+ to Your Life

Age is mind over matter. If you don’t mind then it don’t matter – Satchel Paige Click bait title, I know. But read on! Is Retirement is A “Number” We Make Up? So I recently listened to one of my fave podcasts “Exponential thinking”. http://podcast.diamandis.com Hosts Dan and Peter  talk about how all of us have a “number” in our head that we (un)consciously think we’ll die at.  I’m paraphrasing the process Dan Sullivan uses to unlock 10+ extra years: First: ask yourself “What age do you think you’re going to die? “ Answer for yourself. Let’s say the answer is … Continue reading How To Add 10+ to Your Life

How to Overcome Sugar Addiction and Have a Healthy Relationship to Sugar – #NoSugarStrong

Hey everyone! I want to share a personal win, because I’m really excited about this. My name is Mathieu, and I’m a sugarholic. Most of us are. There are tons of stories out there of our overconsumption of sugar, the addiction that we have to sugar, including this particular article that postulates that sugar can be more addictive than cocaine! That being said, my friend Shannon Courtney and I decided : a better relationship is possible! We both chose a lifestyle and a relationship with sugar that is more balanced, healthier and that is overall preferable. We wanted to make a … Continue reading How to Overcome Sugar Addiction and Have a Healthy Relationship to Sugar – #NoSugarStrong

A Quick Shortcut to Eat More Veggies and Eat Less Junkfood

We always hear it. The way to health goes through veggies! I struggle to eat my fair share of veggies. One of the main reasons being that when I want to snack, I use the “path of less resistance”, which means cookies, toast + peanut butter, chips, even fruit, or whatever tasty snack is available to me! So my question was: How can I make it easy on myself to eat veggies? The answer: make it accessible and easy! You’ll find pictures of my system. I have a tray of veggies with hummus (and some nuts), as to have healthy … Continue reading A Quick Shortcut to Eat More Veggies and Eat Less Junkfood

How to Use Your Mind to Become Superhuman

Yesterday, I watched a documentary on “the Iceman”, this strange/fascinating 50 year old Dutch man who defies what we think we know about physiology.  The man, Wim Hof, holds 20 Guiness records and has defied science by being able to be submerge for almost 2 hours in ice, WITHOUT change to his body temperature. I am VERY intrigued. He and his students have done numerous tests with scientists/doctors and seems it checks out. Meditation/breathing techniques are what seem to be key to power, health and happiness says Hof. From a Sense of Purpose One of the interesting elements of the story … Continue reading How to Use Your Mind to Become Superhuman

Blame and Judgement Are Running Your Life, and How You Can Get It Back

What if there was a way we could simply and efficiently eliminate most of our frustrations in our romantic and work relationships? What if what is stopping us is simply asking ourselves “what we want” and communicating it? I work with youth now (4th graders the other day), and I’ve garnered lots of insight from them about fulfillment. The insight came after we asked kids “what makes you happy” and they all answered immediately with great certainty. Moreover, they do WHAT THEY LOVE. I realized that as adults, not only we don’t DO what we want, we often don’t KNOW what we want. For mylsef, … Continue reading Blame and Judgement Are Running Your Life, and How You Can Get It Back

Lessons from Jaromir Jagr on How to Live Life By Your Own Terms

Here is article on Jaromir Jagr who says he wants to play in the NHL until he’s 50 years old! Considering the average “expiry date” or retirement age of an NHLer is 28 years old, the fact that he’s still playing (and producing!) at 43 is incredible. He’s already one of the 10 oldest players to play in history. And looking at him now, and what he’s done to this young Panthers team, it’s not unthinkable that he could keep going till 50. What I take out of this, personnally is that “nothing is written in stone”. There are no … Continue reading Lessons from Jaromir Jagr on How to Live Life By Your Own Terms

How Team Sports Changed My Life and How I’m Going To Give Back

From Nintendo “Geek” to Athlete As a kid, if you asked anyone to describe me in one word, it would be “Nintendo”. I was obsessed. I sat for hours upon hours in front of the TV screen playing Nintendo and Super Nintendo until my teens. I believe it was both a symptom and a cause of my being overweight, unconfident and relatively recluse. I sought and found comfort in video games where I could “rack up experience” to become a level 99 paladin and annihilate everything! As a result, I was grossly underactive and overweight. In Grade 10, I discovered team sports. I … Continue reading How Team Sports Changed My Life and How I’m Going To Give Back
