005 Movement as a Lifestyle with Brian Pratt of Thrival Life

img_2639

 

Brian is the baddest assed person I’ve ever met.  He is a movement instructor who specializes in natural primitive movement technique and is a proponent of the paleo diet.  He works with his clients on their health goals while engaging in natural movements within a natural environment.

I had the honor of going through an introductory exploration of some of his techniques and processes.  The woods near my house served as our gym, and the fallen trees, grassy pastures and boulders filled in for our equipment.  After my punishment in the 110 degree Redding heat, we sat down in the wilds for a slightly winded, but informative interview about his philosophies on incorporating movement into everything we do.

Thrival Life considers the health of the whole person and how to maintain a fully alive lifestyle. Whether you’re at home, work or on the go, their goal is to help you create and optimize your best life with nutrition, movement, restoration, and community.  The goal is to help you to be ready, capable, and resilient so that you are thriving in your life.

iTunes link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/letgo-hello-perspective-shifts/id1143410487?mt=2&i=375190778

In this episode, we dig deep into the difference between niceness and kindness, and we delve into the many pitfalls that people with chronic niceness (like I’ve personally been working through) fall into.  We also discuss several of the 7 practices that James Rapson M.S., LMF (along with his co-author and long-time-friend Craig English) discusses.

James is a veteran therapist and teacher whose writing combines hard-won personal insight with clinical experience and scholarship. He is the co-author of “Anxious to Please: 7 Revolutionary Practices for the Chronically Nice,” released nationally in April of 2006 (second printing November 2006).

James is the founder of Group of Dads, which offers classes, workshops and groups for fathers.  For more information on the book, or his groups, you may follow the link below.

002 Why Being a “Nice” Person Sucks, This Guy’s Making and Dismantling of a Nice Guy

This episode is a bit of a departure from the typical interview format, as the shows will sometimes go.  This episode is all about the anxiety that comes from keeping your mind focused on future outcomes, rather than in focusing on what’s in front of us.  My own struggles with chronic niceness are discussed as well as how my awareness began to grow around my own insecurities.  As we shine a light on our own insecurities and allow them to inhabit the same space as us (without attempting to push them away or shrink away from them) their power over us weakens.

I talk about how I’ve recently invited some of my own insecurities in to examine them for what they were.  I get into what I learned in the process.

Awareness, is a key element of growth, and a the surest way to break down personal boundaries.  Join me on the journey.  You can learn more at www.letgohello.com

Breakups can be devastating experiences.  On this show Laura talks about her coaching of people who are fresh out of a breakup on reclaiming their own individuality as well as coaching them as they begin dating again.  We discuss perspective shifts required as people go through the grieving process and find their identity, and how to know when a relationship is over.  She talks about common mistakes people make in the process that slow the healing process as well as strategies that can support people as they move on.  We also get into what makes a healthy relationship.  We also delve into business relationships as well.

On a personal side, she talks about her thoughts on finding balance…or rather her philosophy on stepping out of balance to accomplish big things in life.  We get into ways she structures her time to work toward personal goals as well as well as her thoughts on following passion and finding your calling.

Imperfectly Achieving Your Goals

It is vastly important to remember what makes you human.  Your imperfections are what make you unique and allow you to connect with other people.  Have empathy for yourself as you meet obstacles and make mistakes.  Have empathy for yourself while you refine your character as you stumble along.  These are the experiences that will shape and build who you…

The normal person who cuts my hair was out today, but I put my name on the list anyway.  While waiting, another hairdresser was in the front area consulting with a woman who was getting highlights.  It was evident that she either had a lot of knowledge, or that she was clueless.  My knowledge of coloring and “W’s” and “V’s” etc.…

How Fear Can Undermine Your Chances at Making a Real Connection

We can smell fear about as well as dogs and bees can.  (Thanks for the reference, little boy from Jerry Maguire!) Face it, if you’re in a conversation with a person who seems nervous, you probably feel awkward and are searching for a way to end the conversation and politely move on with your day.  It’s uncomfortable. I ran into a…

Another “Secret” to a Happy Life

“The sleep of a laboring [wo]man is sweet” -Solomon We often fantasize about not having to work.  Our culture often promotes this ideal.  Automate!  Optimize!  Delegate!  Put systems in place, and you won’t have to work!  So many are making the shout.  The truth is, when I look back, I’ve always been happiest when I’ve had work to do.  To…

Luck’s Three Step Formula, and My $2,000,000 Mistake

“To be ‘lucky’, you must build the skills you’ll need in order to ‘attract’ the luck you want.” Luck is about attracting and then acting upon opportunities.  Though some people just seem to have all the luck, they have it because they act on opportunities when others do not.  Most people have a skewed vision of luck as a passive…

When should you fight and when should you give in?

Fight, and you may win; let go, and you may feel like you’ve given in; but what are you fighting for?  What do you value? If you’re holding on and fighting because you’re angry about a situation or an individual…or if you feel wronged in some way or another…it becomes important to evaluate what’s at stake before launching into a battle.…

We Try to Control Everything While Feeling Like we Control Nothing. Do we Really Have Any Control?

In our lives, we spend so much energy wrestling for control.  What do you really have control over?  You don’t have control over the family you’re born into.  You don’t have control over what other people do or say to you.  You don’t have control over other peoples perception of messages you send.  As an educator, this is a difficult…

Read This Before You Give Up

Are you feeling regret when you you look around at what others “have”?  That feeling you’re feeling is very common.  Hang in there.  It’s something that most people would agree they have felt.  If they say they haven’t, they’ve probably forgotten or are lying to you. 🙂  Depression tends to come from our anxiety about the future.  We look into the…
