#165: How to Become Better at Focusing with Dr. Pedram Shojai

Dhru Purohit Podcast

In our unpredictable and continually changing world, we are constantly in a state of figuring out how to create a happy life, which means tending to the needs of our health, career, family and friends, passions, and desires. Unfortunately, time never seems to be on our side, and, if anything, often it seems out of our control. But what if it wasn't? What if you had the ability to take control of how you trade your energy for time and knew how to increase your body's "energy budget" to live your fullest life? On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host Dhru talks to Dr. Pedram Shojai, a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Master Herbalist, and Acupuncturist.

They discuss what Pedram refers to as “life gardens” and the importance of how we tend to them. They also talk about how the pandemic has forced us, as a society to halt, and why this is such a crucial time to evaluate our lives and hit reset. In this episode, we dive into: -Pedram’s goal setting technique and why it’s so successful (11:46)-How to make a life plan and stick to it (15:20)-Common things that are pulling our attention away from being able to focus (17:58)-How daily meditation can help with attention and focus (21:03)-How Pedram maintains his focus throughout the day, and what he does when his attention gets off track (24:38)-How modern technology is dividing us, and how we are letting the inputs of the world influence us (36:18)-How Pedram became a monk and why he ended up leaving the monastery (37:24) -Breaking expectations that others have of you and the importance of setting boundaries (54:59)-Where you can learn more about Dr. Pedram Shojai (1:00:55) For more on Dr. Pedram Shojai you can follow him on Instagram @official_urbanmonk, on Facebook @PedramShojaiUrbanMonk, on Twitter @PedramShojai, and through his website https://www.theurbanmonk.com.

I’m a huge fan of morning routines, because I think they can transform your ability to focus, sleep well, and get the most out of your day, especially in this busy, modern world. What I’ve found is that the best way to begin your day is to feed your body the right information or the right nutrients. That’s why Dr. Mark Hyman and I created the Pegan Shake. It’s a nutritionally-packed morning blend designed to support healthy blood sugar, energy, and brain power.  It contains some of my most favorite brain boosting foods like MCT and avocado. It also features acacia fiber for healthy gut function and collagen, pumpkin, and pea protein to support muscle synthesis. Check it out at getfarmacy.com/peganshake.
