Power of Visualization with Santiago Arana

The Ikonns

aliceko recommended:

This was highly recommended to me by a friend. Listen if you want to hear a motivational rags to riches stories about the true American dream, or if you’re interested in the topic of visualization. Santiago Arana arrived in the US from Bolivia with nothing and through hustle, hard work, and an amazing attitude, worked his way from waiter to become one of the top real estate agents in the country. Santiago is a great storyteller and you really feels the ups and downs of his story. Amazing tips on how he powered through during the recession and how it paid off.

Managing Your Focus and Improving Productivity | CarSmart Edition - 467

The Chalene Show | Diet, Fitness & Life Balance

aliceko recommended:

Chalene was the first female podcast host I listened to back in 2015 and I've recently picked her show up again. Great tips on learning how to focus because the average time is ~ 40 seconds. Things that don't hold our attn are things that are: difficult, not valuable, don't find interesting/frustrating, boring, not new Things that hold our attention: fun, exciting, creates dopamine, new, offer a reward Schedule 'power hours' (2 per day) and pad your day with buffers Schedule time to daydream through repetitive habitual habits You need to do what moves you closer to your dream life not someone else's - preach!

7 Signs Its Time To Let Go of a Friendship - 501

The Chalene Show | Diet, Fitness & Life Balance

aliceko recommended:

“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”- Martin Luther King Sometimes our friendships feel one-sided and they shouldn't be. 1. You don't agree w/ their character, ethics, or lack of integrity 2. You do all the work all the time 3. You cannot truly be yourself. They make you feel self conscious. Changing for the better is good, but changing for acceptance is not 4. You feel responsible for the relationship 5. You cannot trust them 6. You don't feel good after seeing them 7. They have the maturity of a middle schooler

Your Brain on Birth Control with Dr. Sarah E. Hill

The Heavy Flow Podcast

aliceko recommended:

REALLY important episode about the impact on birth control on a women's brain and body. You are literally a different person when you are taking birth control. There is so much that isn't discussed when doctors carelessly prescribe birth control to young girls. There is no choice. Women need to be given all the information upfront and made an informed decision for themselves. The episode starts off a little bit slow and you may get annoyed by the pauses and ums -- but the episodes gets better and better - I PROMISE. - Dr. Sarah Hill teaches us why we cannot take scientific studies at face value - because the majority of academic studies on done on men - because it's easier - and people are lazy. Men's bodies and women's bodies are different due to the mere fact that a woman's body needs to take their cycle into consideration. My science friends will understand this. However, in the academic/research community, it's very competitive to get grants and doctors/scientists frankly just don't want to spend the extra TIME on doing a study on women around her cycle. MADDENING - Also, did you know that birth control was created for men - but there were too many 'side effects' so they decided to give it to women instead!?! - Lastly, Dr. Hill launches into an important discuss on why this topic isn't discussed very much - even in the feminist and female communities. Because admitting this would be admitting that women are biologically different and give more power to the patriarchy.

Oh man, this brings me back. My grandma loved her Vicks swore that little blue bottle cured everything. I’d be curious how it became such a huge thing in so many immigrant communities. Was there some brilliant ad campaign back in the day? Some of my Filipino friends also have memories of being sla...Show More
