305: A Day in the Life: Wellness Mama Health Routines

With over 1300 posts on Wellness Mama, I think I’ve tried just about every diet, supplement, workout, and health tool out there! Today I thought I’d do something a little different and share how I’ve filtered through all that to settle on my personal health non-negotiables. My views have definitely changed on many things, while others continue to be so important (like good sleep when I can get it!). Sometimes I’m hesitant to share exactly what I do because health is not one-size-fits-all, and what is best for me might not be for you! But since so many of you have asked, in this episode I’ll walk you through a typical day in my life — what I eat, drink, think, do, and don’t do! Here we go… and please let me know your daily routines in the comments! It’s a great big health world and we can learn from each other! Episode Highlights: A Day in the Life of Katie Wells The #1 goal I’m working on right now The metric I apply to decide what health info to act on (and what to tune o...

304: Ninja Warrior Travis Brewer on Movement, Gratitude, and Play

I met Travis Brewer on my trip to Finland with Four Sigmatic, and let’s just say he made an impression! Forget the subfreezing temperatures and snow everywhere… Travis did handstands and backflips on pretty much everything… from sleds to towers to bridges! Outside of Finland, Travis is literally a fitness ninja who is on a mission to spread positive energy in the world by inspiring people to move. His incredible skills led him to become a finalist on the hit TV show “American Ninja Warrior” on NBC, “Shark Tank” on ABC, and the World Calisthenics Championship Battle of the Bars. This is an episode kids would love as well, so have them listen in! Episode Highlights With Travis Brewer How Travis found his real passion… and came to be known as a ninja! The fascinating discipline of “Parkour” (kids will like this one!) What our bodies learn through play (and why it’s not just for kids) What Acroyoga (partner-based yoga) is like…and why Travis chose an alligator for a partner ...

301: How to Use Light to Drastically Improve Health With Matt Maruca

I’m here today for a fascinating conversation with Matt Maruca who is a researcher, a teacher, and an entrepreneur in the field of photobiology, or the study of how light affects health. After suffering from poor health and chronic fatigue since the age of 14, Matt chose to skip the beaten path of higher education to start his own business and solve his health problems through research and self-education. He is now only 20 years old and travels the world studying and teaching about the relevance of light in human health. He founded his own company, RA Optics, which provides tools for optimizing our exposure to light, like blue light protection glasses. In this episode, Matt and I go deep on how artificial light can be beneficial or harmful, why we need sunlight, and so many other fascinating topics!

296: Why AI-Assisted High Intensity Training Is the Next Exercise Frontier With CAR.O.L

Today we’re honing in on the science of high intensity interval training, which is the science-supported idea that you can get more benefit from a short, intense workout than from a 45-minute run, if you do it right.

Ratna and her team have found a way to combine artificial intelligence and an exercise bike to create a highly effective HIIT interval training session. We’re going to go deep on the benefits of this kind of AI-assisted exercise, how it can improve your heart rate variability and other health markers, and all kinds of fun stuff!
