How to lower ANXIETY through DRUMMING (with Navy SEAL David Rutherford)

LTR PODCAST – Chrislesso.com

https://old.chrislesso.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/38-How-to-lower-anxiety-through-drumming-with-Navy-SEAL-David-Rutherford-091020-1.mp3“Being a musician means being part of a total experience—no winning, no losing.” Jim BlackleyAnxiety and depression levels are at all time highs. How do we handle the amount of distraction pummelling us day in and day out from every direction on the battlefield of life? Our brains didn’t evolve to deal with the pace that the exponential rise in technology gives us. The speed of life is our double edged sword, giving us access to limitless information at any time but taking its toll on our peace of mind. We go to videos games, TV binge watching and social media to find relief, but this only RAISES our anxiety. Recovery from the noise is a NECESSITY not a luxury, and practices that fuel our FUN and ENTHUSIASM are the answer. Discipline to create SPACE is where peace of mind lives.The root word of anxiety of TO DIVIDE. Even though tools of technology connect us like never before, so many of us feel isolated. Since we become the five people that we spend the most time with, this is where COMMUNITY comes in. Mentors can be found anywhere, and they don’t even have to be alive! Through books we can see into the arc of history that delivers perspective to the present. Living inside a past you can’t change breeds depression, and looking too far into a future you can’t control can creates fear. Taking a deep breath and being in the RIGHT NOW is where we can best guide our STATE. The obstacle becomes the way forward. What looks like a wall that blocks us, is often the bottom of the next step that we have to rise over.There’s something about moving to music that is guaranteed to change your state every time. You can be sad when doing activities like painting or writing, but your physiology will not let you feel down when you are DANCING. And to DRUM is to dance! This is where we achieve flow through movement, connection through music, and where we strive forward relentlessly to become our best selves through drumming every day.The post How to lower ANXIETY through DRUMMING (with Navy SEAL David Rutherford) appeared first on Chrislesso.com.

It is an honour and huge privilege to have retired NAVY SEAL and CIA operative David Rutherford on the show today. As you will hear, David's high energy and endless motivation inspire all those who come in contact with him to embrace fear and live life to its fullest. David served 8 years in the Naval Special Warfare Community as a SEAL student, Combat Paramedic, Operator and Instructor. Since leaving the Navy in 2003 he has continued travelling as a tactical training and security expert for the US Government and one of the largest private security firms in the world. David has inspired special operations units around the globe to push themselves past any and all known limitations.  David is passionate about exploring and researching the human condition in an attempt to discover the truth behind what enables us to overcome failure and rise in success in every environment imaginable. David’s ability to take a comprehensive approach of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health of an individual or team creates a unique approach in defeating the negative insurgency of life. David and I have an interesting and entertaining conversation that looks at the current state of our societies and how the approach to solving the problems that face us is going to have a significant impact on the world our children live in. We look at history and what we can learn from the innumerable examples of civilisations and communities that were unable to see their common humanity and had the propensity for destroying each other.  We discuss the need for us and our children to understand that life was never meant or going to be a leisurely stroll, but that we will face constant adversity and pain along the way, and developing endurance and resilience is paramount to living a successful and meaningful life. It is a fascinating discussion that I learned a great deal from, and I am looking forward to talking to David again, with a greater focus on fatherhood.
