#107: The Scariest Navy SEAL I've Ever Met...And What He Taught Me. Jocko Willink (@jockowillink) is one of the scariest human beings imaginable. He is a lean 230 pounds. He is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu expert who used to tap out 20 Navy SEALs per workout. He is a legend in the Special Operations world. His eyes look through you more than at you. He rarely does interviews, if ever. But a few weeks ago, Jocko ended up staying at my house and we had a caffeinated mind meld. Here's some background... Jocko enlisted in the Navy after high school and spent 20 years in the SEAL Teams, first as an enlisted SEAL operator and then as a SEAL officer. During his second tour in Iraq, he led SEAL Task Unit Bruiser in the Battle of Ramadi--some of the toughest and sustained combat in the SEAL Teams since Vietnam. Under his leadership, Task Unit Bruiser became the most highly decorated Special Operations Unit of the entire war in Iraq and helped bring stability to Ramadi. Jocko was awarded the Bronze Star and a Silver Star. Upon returning to the United States, Jocko served as the Officer-in-Charge of training for all West Coast SEAL Teams, designing and implementing some of the most challenging and realistic combat training in the world. So why is Jocko opening up? Well, in part, we have mutual friends. Second, he is the co-author of an incredible new book — Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win -- which I've been loving. Trust me. Buy it. This is his first mainstream interview and one you won't want to miss. Show notes and links for this episode can be found at www.fourhourworkweek.com/podcast.

Rank #1: Dr. Sara Gottfried: 7 Ways to Rock Cortisol & Manage Your Stress. "I'm not going to tell you to relax, because that's not what I want you to do," shares Dr. Sara Gottfried right off the top of her Speakeasy at Wanderlust Colorado. In her talk on managing cortisol (and thereby stress levels), she emphasizes that her version of reducing stress, "is a much more advanced physiological state [than relaxation]. When you entrain your and sympathetic nervous system (the half that deals with "fight or flight") with your parasympathetic nervous system (the half that does "rest and digest") you are better able to manage your stress. It's about perception and being about to rise above the fray and look more objectively at your own stressors and how you dance with them." From Wanderlust Colorado 2013

Rank #1: 371: Communication in Relationships with Sonya Jensen. Any relationship crisis is usually coupled with a communication breakdown. Your needs are not being met, so you shut down. You’re upset about something, but instead of voicing it, you bottle it up. Your partner does the same, and over time, you grow distant, bitter, and even resentful. We’ve all experienced this poor communication pattern at some point. But what does good communication even look like? Do you take notes and make an outline of your key points? Do you talk, text, or email? There is no right answer to this, but everyone in a relationship needs to figure it out one way or another to survive. On this week’s show, you’ll meet a couple’s counselor who shares her best practices for couples in crisis and those who want to avoid problems in the future. Listen & Learn: How to assign one listener and one speaker during conversations The “doing” versus “feeling” part of showing love How to navigate the complexities of money, sex, and lack of time Emotional versus physical affairs How polarity attracts and also creates conflict Links & Resources: Sonya’s site ABOUT OUR GUEST Sonya Jensen is a marriage counselor, premarital counselor, relationship coach, and breakup recovery counselor with Growing Self Counseling and Coaching.

One of your relatives is sick and has been texting you all day, but you haven’t had a moment to call to check in. Your taxes are due in a few weeks, and you don’t have any idea how much you’ll owe. You’re best friend is just not there for you the way she used to be. She hasn’t called you in weeks. It’s Thursday evening, and you’re all alone in your kitchen trying to manage this very common mundane overwhelm that comes with everyday life. So what do you do? No one is looking, no one will ask… Is it a Haagen Dazs and Netflix binge? Sleeping pills and a glass of red wine? Do you vape or watch porn? We all have our escapes. When the pressure cooker of our lives builds, it has to find a release. But most of our choices are destructive. On this week’s show, we’ll talk about how to find a better way. Listen & Learn: Why sobriety is often a sliding scale How dose and frequency often determine damage and risk How cocaine was not deemed addictive until 1986 Why the opposite of addiction is choice The challenges of positive escapes in a stressful world Links & Resources: Judith’s Book on Amazon Video Lecture on Addiction ABOUT OUR GUEST Grisel is a behavioral neuroscientist with expertise in pharmacology and genetics whose research focuses on determining root causes of drug addiction.

Rank #1: The Science of Stretching (and Strength) with Jules Mitchell. For our season two finale episode, we’re talking to Las Vegas-based yoga teacher and author Jules Mitchell. We dive deep into the biomechanics of yoga in this episode and talk about Jules’ new book, which is a comprehensive look at the science of stretching. We can’t cover the whole book in this short format, but I think you’ll find the highlights are fascinating, thought provoking, and relevant to the broader discussions we’re having in the yoga community today.We talk about: * Why it was so important to Jules to define the anatomy terminology in her book (and why Jason tries to do the same thing in his trainings) + Why language is so important in the yoga room!* She explains what compressive load and tensile load means for listeners* Hypermobility, the pros and cons of passive stretching, and her recommendations for students who are really flexible. Plus, Jules shares why she cautions teachers against diagnosing students with hypermobility (what to do instead).* The long-held myth that strong and flexible are opposite concepts * Her thoughts on yoga as a lifelong practice and whether yogis should incorporate other types of movement and exercise into their routinesShow notes: http://www.jasonyoga.com/podcast/episode160 SHOUT-OUT TO OUR SPONSORSSweaty Betty is a woman-owned activewear company based in the U.K. Their clothing is made of great fabrics and are always a phenomenal fit.

Rank #2: Easy Ways to Improve Verbal Communication with Jason Crandell. When I first started taking yoga classes from Jason many years ago, I was struck by his voice. He has a voice that draws you in. It's soothing and encouraging. He speaks in a measured, comfortable pace. And he's a clear, succinct communicator. In essence, he's a natural when it comes to verbal communication.This week, I ask Jason to share how he's developed this skill set. And, although this episode is specifically geared toward yoga teachers, the ideas we here apply to everyone. We all have times when clear verbal communication is vital -- in client meetings, with our loved ones, during presentations -- and some of us struggle with it more than others. My hope is that you'll gain confidence and clarity from this episode.We talk about:* Why verbal communication might be the most important skill for yoga teachers* Using each class you teach as a practice for personal growth in the area of verbal communication* The struggles we (Jason and Andrea) have when it comes to speaking in front of a group* How choosing one or two takeaways for your students can dramatically improve your teachingShow notes: http://www.jasonyoga.com/podcasts/episode100SHOUT-OUT TO OUR SPONSORS1.
