If you’ve listened to the podcast before, you know that I have a real interest in this concept called biohacking — the things that we can do to alter and optimize our own physiology. And one of the things I have talked about in the past with respect to biohacking is the need to protect ourselves from blue light. Blue light is the type of toxic light that is produced by our phones and our computer screens that can throw off our circadian rhythm and cause damage to our mitochondria (the little powerhouses in our cells that produce energy). So, if blue light can impact our mitochondria negatively, is there a type of light that can impact them positively? Turns out, there is! Red light therapy actually enables your mitochondria to become more efficient — with that just being one of the many benefits red light therapy produces.

 

My guest today, Scott Nelson, is going to take us on a deep dive of this topic! Scott is the co-founder of Joovv, the first company to develop a full body light therapy device designed for home use. Prior to starting Joovv, Scott spent his entire professional career in leadership positions in some of the largest medical device companies in the world.

 

One of the things I love about Joovv is that it is really a device and an opportunity for people to have some agency and control over optimizing mitochondrial health without more supplementation! Everyone wants to know what we can do with diet and lifestyle, but the reality is that lifestyle (and the things that we expose ourselves to every day) can really move our health in a positive direction if you know what they are — and that’s exactly what we’ll be talking about today! We discuss some of the conditions and psychological outcomes that red light therapy can help with, how exactly it all works, and how to use the Joovv to take your health to an entirely new level!

Jun 18, 2019

Sleep, access to nature, consistent play, nutrient density, mindset work, are some of the foundational core pieces to your health. But the nature piece is usually the one that creates the greatest degree of stress in the patients that I see. And when it comes to knowing what to look for and how to actually enjoy the outdoors… sometimes it actually requires that we go a little bit deeper. It requires us exploring and unpacking the concept — and that’s exactly what we are going to do today!

 

It is my pleasure to welcome my friend and colleague to the podcast, Dr. Cyndi Gilbert. Cyndi is a naturopathic doctor, author, and plant whisperer. She and I graduated together 12 years ago from naturopathic medicine and currently, she is celebrating the release of her brand new book, Forest Bathing. Cyndi has been studying forest bathing and herbal medicine since she first sat under a maple tree and ate red clover flowers as a child. She’s also a faculty member at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, and she has taught botanical medicine and philosophy there for over 10 years.

 

Cyndi is truly a wealth of knowledge! And as you will hear from this interview, forest bathing is not necessarily as simple as stepping into a forest. Forest bathing and observing nature can exist on so many different levels. In this episode, we not only talk about some of the core elements to look for as you are engaging with the forest or going out, into the great outdoors but we also discuss the pheromones that trees release, how this actually impacts your health, the notion of a ‘wood wide web,’ the world of fungi, and actually enabling communication to happen between a variety of different trees. This is the perfect episode to tune into on the brink of summer, so I invite you all to come and listen in on the conversation!

 

Key Takeaways:

[1:30] About today’s episode and fantastic guest, Dr. Cyndi Gilbert.

[4:40] Welcoming Dr. Cyndi Gilbert!

[5:46] Cyndi gives us the “coles notes” version of how she got into naturopathic medicine and how she got to where she is today!

[9:30] What is forest bathing?

[11:06] Cyndi takes us through some of the deeper nuances of forest bathing (beyond just getting outside)!

[14:22] How the smells of nature impact your health, body, and mental state.

[18:39] Cyndi highlights the various ways to forest bathe depending on the season!

[21:35] The importance of children connecting to — and exploring — nature, and how we can learn from how children interact with nature, as adults.

[26:00] Cyndi introduces us to the layers of the energetics of the forest, the consciousness and communication of trees, and the world and role of fungi.

[32:35] Cyndi gives some examples of where the Doctrine of Signatures is present.

[37:29] Are there any cool apps people can bring along with them when they first go forest bathing?

[42:06] Dr. Cyndi Gilbert’s key performance indicators!

[45:00] Where to find Cyndi and her book online!

Instagram has done us all a disservice. Instagram makes it seem like being a CEO or your own boss is the absolute, best, most pink and gold vocation you can possibly pick in life! There are fabulous planners, amazing mugs, incredible t-shirts — all of the things that make it look like it is just the most amazing lifestyle to be a CEO. But, let’s be real; there’s a lot more to it than what you see on the ’gram!

 

Today on The Entrepology Podcast I am going solo because I want to take you through the top 10 lessons I have learned about what it actually means to be a mindful CEO! There is a truth to running a business, and the truth is: it’s absolutely incredible if you walk into it with your eyes wide open. Without understanding the core tenets of being a successful CEO and the responsibility that’s going to come along with it, you will be disappointed, burnt out, and ultimately, your relationships and health will suffer. But that doesn’t have to be the truth of entrepreneurship!

 

So what I want to talk to you all about today are the top 10 things you need to know to be a mindful CEO! I’ve seen so many people, including myself, led astray by the glamour of what it means to be self-employed. And when you work on these things and have systems in place to actually help you move forward in these 10 areas, your business, health, and confidence will move to entirely new levels! So here is my list of the top 10 things that every mindful CEO needs to know in order to successfully put their product, their solution, and themselves out into the world!

 

Key Takeaways:

[:16] About today’s solo episode!

[2:54] The importance of the lessons I have to offer in today’s episode.

[4:48] The first lesson: a connection to purpose.

[7:58] Lesson #2: rejection.

[11:14] Lesson #3: priorities.

[13:47] Lesson #4: measurements of success.

[16:15] Lesson #5: health.

[17:57] Lesson #6: an irresistible solution.

[19:17] Lesson #7: a predictable flow of customers.

This week I want to encourage you all to take a look at the 10 lessons I’ve outlined. Write each down and rate yourself from 1 to 10 and then write where you’d like to be on that scale. Next, write down one step (for each lesson) that you can take to help improve your score, and ideally set some sort of a deadline, whether it be a month or a year. It is incredibly helpful to keep these goals in mind to truly optimize your work and life as a CEO! Good luck out there!
