Are you ready for anything life throws your way?

In this episode of the Align Podcast, guest Kelly Starrett discusses how putting ourselves in physically stressful situations prepares us for the mentally stressful situations life throws our way. The example he shares is how the risk he emersed himself in doing high-level white water kayaking mentally prepared him for the risk he took to start his own business.

We dive into why taking risks and breaking ourselves against our fear doesn't make us more reckless, but actually makes us more responsible in the decisions we make in our lives. 

Kelly is a physical therapist, author of Becoming a Supple Leopard, the founder of The Ready State, and to be honest, my preferred human of choice.

Kelly has had a profound impact on me personally, and I'm excited to have him back on the podcast in hopes of having a profound impact on you as well.

What we discuss:

02:25 - How does your bike affect your spine?

05:05 - How to implement biking into your life?

10:45 - What's actively challenging you in your life?

15:20 - Acknowledge bad behaviours and taking action 

16:40 - The relationship between trying and doing

19:30 - The pressure of quarantine and it's social impact

22:10 - The value of experiences of being poor vs having too much abundance

27:00 - The relationship with tribalism.

32:45 - Breaking yourself against your fear 

36:35 - How fear teaches you how to be in your body

40:50 - Why we seek dangerous behaviours

47:00 - The connection between physical risk and mental risk.

51:00 - Normal Accidents Theory

53:00 - Why it's easier to add to your diet than to subtract from it
