The Warrior Soul Podcast

Over the past two decades of fighting the Global War on Terror, we've heard so much about veteran suicide, veteran homelessness, and veterans suffering from chronic mental and physical illness. What we haven't heard much about are solutions. The Warrior Soul Podcast introduces listeners to tools, tactics, ideas, and techniques to help the US Military Veteran Community, and anyone else willing to listen to increase their strength, health, happiness, and performance through interviews, q & a, and Warrior Fitness Notes segments. Hosted by US Marine Corps Veteran and International Sports Nutrition Coach Chris Albert.

A Harvard lecturer recently stated in a lecture in Germany that coconut oil is pure poison and that it wasn't until recently that it was considered healthy. 

This, however, is contradicts the fact that coconut oil has been eaten for thousands of years amongst Polynesian populations and that those populations had extremely low incidences of heart disease until starting the Western Diet. 

This podcast goes into what you should know about coconut oil. The truth is that it isn't poison, and it isn't God's gift to man. It is a food that has some benefits as well as some downfalls if you overconsume it.

In our lives there is an inherent temptation amongst us to blame the world for our problems. Many enjoy playing the victim and complain about this or that holding them down.

The danger here is that, when you do play the victim, you immediately submit control of your problems to outside forces rather than doing what you should be doing: working on yourself.

The two most important assets you have in your life are your mind and your body. If either falters, it will keep you from doing the things you need to do in your life for your family, for your career, and for yourself. 

One aspect of maintaining these two most valuable of assets is mental toughness. Being mentally tough means that you're not only going to be good on your good days, but that you'll also find a way to perform when things get hard. 

In this episode we go through three things you can do to increase your own mental toughness.

Whenever we're trying to do big things in our lives, it always seems like we don't have enough time. 

The truth is that we all have the same 24 hours in a day. 

We don't lack time, we lack attention. 

Tips:

  • Get 8 Hours of Sleep or you'll lose part of your attention to fatigue
  • Go to sleep early and wake up early
  • Focus on one thing at a time
    • turn off your phone notifications
    • get your phone as far away from you as possible while you're focusing
    • keep one window up at a time on your computer
  • Plan the day before
    • create a schedule
    • create a checklist for each item on your schedule
  • Create lists
    • keep a notebook with you wherever you go so that you can record things you need to pay attention to later
  • Build a team to help you with the things you shouldn't be doing
  • Be present in everything you do. Don't treat your family and relations as second class citizens.
  • Prioritize what you're focusing on.
