Episode #24 – The Subtle Art Of Not….WAR Book Club

Reading? Yeah right! Dustin couldn’t pass the ACT to go play college baseball, and thought he was too dumb to even enjoy reading. Little did he know that reading was necessary to save his life.

Dustin & Don share stories about their recovery, talk about the important role reading and audiobooks play in growing, and give different ideas on how to capture spiritual experiences. This is a good listen for anybody who wants to gain some insight on how to live the WAR lifestyle.

A new lifestyle of health needs to take place or nothing will. Become a reader! – so that new concepts can formulate in the mind. How would you expect to change your thinking if you are not putting new and improved concepts into your mind on how to act and live better. A great many of people have written books on how to make life happen. Lets be readers of those books. Be a Reader! Join the WAR book

Episode #16 – Build Your Foundation

This week we sit down with the new Primary Therapist at W.A.R., Justin Zizumbo. We talk about the ingredients to putting together a resilient lifestyle, cutting out what holds you back, and building your foundation to weather the storm.

Justin’s Weekly Challenge: Cut It Out 2x 

Part 1 – Cut something out of your life that is a time suck. An app, the snooze button, etc.

Part 2 – Be conscious of the amount of sugar you are taking in to your body through beverages. Sports drinks, energy drinks, etc. all contain a massive amount of sugar. Compete with that for a few days and notice the difference in your energy levels, clarity, and happiness.

This will have a big impact on the progress of your personal goals.

Sound silly? It’s not. By making your bed every morning, you are starting your day with an accomplishment and exercising discipline. After a long day, regardless of how difficult it was, you are coming home to a made bed and the feeling that everything will be ok.
