We currently live in a society where chronic illness, obesity, drug dependence, anxiety, and depression are rapidly becoming the prevailing norms.
According to the CDC, more than half of U.S. adults have been diagnosed with a chronic disease. 68% are overweight or obese, 70% are taking at least one prescription drug, and 97% are not managing to maintain four of the most basic habits required for long-term health: decent nutrition, adequate exercise, not smoking, and maintaining a healthy body composition.
Today on The Broken Brain Podcast, I’m joined by my good friend Pilar Gerasimo to talk about how to break out of the unhealthy matrix that society has us living in when it comes to believing we’re not enough, not good enough, or that we’re never going to be enough. We discuss why we value other people’s opinions more than our own, and why we try to fit in at the expense of our own health. We also talk about the Healthy Deviant approach to living, how to develop the skills of a healthy person, and the first thing you can do to start making healthy changes in your life.
