We can eat really well, get great sleep, and workout several times a week in an effort to feel our best. These steps are all clearly important, but they don’t mean anything if we’re missing love and connection.
On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk to my good friend and business partner Dr. Mark Hyman about the power of love, community and friendship as a key ingredient for overall health. Dr. Hyman’s new book, The Pegan Diet just hit shelves, and we talk about where the concept of Pegan came from and why this way of eating is sure to help everyone create a healthier body and planet. We discuss how to combat emotional eating, precision nutrition, and how to eat like a regenetarian. We also talk about COVID-19 and why food is such an essential piece of staying resilient. Dr. Hyman shares his thoughts on the vaccine, and some of the other most common questions and concerns around the virus.

This episode is brought to you by the BLUblox and Paleovalley.
As someone who is on the computer a lot, I realized all that screen time was negatively affecting how well I slept. I started learning about blue light and how it disrupts the body’s natural melatonin production, so I decided to try blue-light blocking glasses throughout the day to see if they helped—and they totally did. I love the blue-light blocking glasses made by BLUblox. BLUblox glasses reduced my digital eye strain and dramatically improved my sleep, and I have more energy throughout the day.
