2 Big Ideas on Goal Setting During Quarantine

Big Idea Tuesday 


“The real question is: Are you putting your ass where your heart wants to be?” - Steven Pressfield challenges you to put intention into your goals, dreams, ambitions, etc. In a more challenging state than ever, it’s so important to check in on our mental health, focus on self-care, and continue to create goals.

In today’s minisode, Dhru discusses the importance of goal setting during this time of social isolation. He shares two main ideas:


1) The power of time-blocking

2) The “one thing” approach


This information is so important. I hope you tune in and find yourself inspired. (Remember: being inspired and having dreams, ambitions, and passions are empty without action!)


Mentioned in this episode: The War of Art by Steven Pressfield

Powerful Strategies to Heal The Gut (Minisode #50)

Season 2, Ep. 43
Powerful Strategies to Heal | This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker and Cozy Earth.Over the last seventy-five years, an array of serious, seemingly unrelated chronic illnesses—cardiovascular disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, autoimmune disorders, cancer, and brain disorders—have all been steadily rising, some at astonishing rates. While we’re living dramatically longer lives, many of us are suffering throughout them, creating a public health crisis of historic scale.A key principle of Functional Medicine is looking at the gut and how it impacts the entire body. All of the diseases mentioned above have a component of gut dysfunction, especially intestinal permeability, which is also known as leaky gut syndrome. When the digestive tract is inflamed and food particles are able to make their way into the bloodstream, the body goes into fight mode. This goes far beyond a stomach ache, as symptoms can occur throughout the whole body.In today’s mini-episode, Dhru dives deep into the topic of gut health with Dr. Mary Pardee and Dr. Emeran Mayer.Dr. Mary Pardee is a Naturopathic Medical Doctor and a Certified Functional Medicine Doctor who specializes in integrative gastroenterology and hormone balancing in Los Angeles, California. She is the founder of modrn med, a telemedicine and virtual wellness company that provides medical and health services to clients from the comfort of their homes.Dr. Emeran Mayer is the author of The Gut-Immune Connection and The Mind-Gut Connection.
