Be Present, Be balanced
Kyle Kingsbury is in the business of Human Optimization. That means he's dedicated to vetting the basic and fringe methods for living your best life. It also means he gets to use himself as guinnea pig for various training, dietary, meditative, and spiritual practices. As host of Onnit's Human Optimization Hour podcast, he's also able to probe the minds behind the methods. Sound familiar? This week we selfishly pick his brain for all the wisdom he's amassed from his many guests and experiences. It's podcast-ception and it's beautiful.
While Kyle Kingsbury is best known for his career as a MMA fighter, he also prides himself on being dad and husband. When he discusses his passion for optimizing human performance he's talking about incorporating practices that will enable you to live in the present moment and enjoy it. He's uncovering tools everyday through his Onnit podcast guests, reading, traveling, and experiencing the fringe. Kyle talks about embracing the technological insights of modern but also yielding to the legacy of more primitive practices. Both have been proven effective and have their place in promoting wellness. Speaking of balance, this episode is not all incense and dream-catcher. John's stories of spending $1000 on Girl Scout Cookies, fighting with a backpack on, and a list of Tampa's best strip clubs provide the yin-yang you're looking for.
