Robb Wolf | Mental Health Sovereignty: How To Make Your Mind Wise + Strong Amidst Chaos
Wellness + Wisdom with Josh Trent
The woke mentality steals the ability for people to have gratitude. No matter how shitty the situation is, if we can cultivate a sense of gratitude, then it gives us the option of agency... ...I can be grateful for the challenge that I have, and then you can start moving forward, or you experience despair which means your progress has stopped and you’re done. You’re either going to die now or you’re going to die later, but your situation isn’t going to change. - Robb Wolf Are You Stressed Out Lately?

The thing about that is that you need a certain rate of economic growth to keep that system going. If you don’t have a certain rate of economic growth, then the whole system collapses." - Robb Wolf Being Ready For The Unpredictable "There will be a lot of dislocation, a lot of pain, and the people that are going to suffer the most are the people that didn’t realize this was an eventuality. They didn’t realize there was a possibility of a really rainy day, and maybe a rainy month, or a rainy decade. So they’re going to be surprised, and they’re going to be bitter, and that’s going to make them really ineffective, strap themselves, and lean into the community that they have and help each other. The bright side of that, people will be more networked in the real world. People will care more of each other." - Robb Wolf Downside Risk Mitigation "There are a lot of folks that are afraid of facing some of these darker realities because of the anxiety they produce just thinking about economic stuff and global upheaval. But a little bit of investment in downside risk mitigation really helps you sleep at night. But then the advice I need, and what I’ve been realizing, I’ve been too good at that, I’ve invested too much in that. I’ve been preparing too much for the end of the world instead of preparing for a better world." - Robb Wolf Links From Today's Show Robb Wolf 103 Wired to Eat - Robb Wolf 357 Robb Wolf | Sacred Cow: The Case for (Better) Meat 403 Robb Wolf | Electrolytes: How Sodium, Potassium & Magnesium Help To Beat Brain Fog Ancestral Health Symposium 071 Food Freedom Forever With Melissa Hartwig Sacred Cow by Diana Rodgers and Robb Wolf Wired to Eat: Turn Off Cravings, Rewire Your Appetite for Weight Loss, and Determine the Foods That Work for You by Robb Wolf The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet by Robb Wolf Drink LMNT – Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack,with any purchase Gavin Newsom - California’s Governor 463 JP Sears | This Is How Media HIJACKS Your Mind: Stop Censoring Yourself & Heal The Tyrant Within Naval Special Warfare Wyoming Carbon Capture facility Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E.

Robb shares his background and story, including his own breakdown to breakthrough experience, which took him from a vegan diet, poor circadian rhythm, autoimmune issues, ulcerative coliti, which all in was also impacting his mental health.

Robb is also talking about the ethics dialogue around eating meat, addresses the climate rhetoric around ruminant animals, regenerative agriculture, the narrative we are being fed and how incredibly wrong it is and the red flags that the vast majority are missing right now as the mainstream works to stifle the consuption of red meat, while pushing the most questionable alternatives.
