New Year Health Optimization Tools with Kayla Barnes
If you are just getting started on your journey to optimal health, or you are getting refocused on your health. These are my top tips. If you are just getting started on your journey to optimal health, or you are getting refocused on your health. These are my top tips.
If you're just getting started, do these things.
Go to bed earlier. By getting adequate sleep, you set yourself up for success the next day. Go bed by 10 pm.
Get up when your alarm goes off. You need to create new habits and develop discipline. Habits can take between eighteen and two hundred and fifty days to develop. Start now.
Get sun into the eyes every morning to set your circadian rhythm.
Take a cold shower every morning to boost dopamine and serotonin and increase energy. You can start with 30 seconds of cold and work up. Other options for cold are cold immersion, like a cold tub, jumping in a cold body of water, or cryotherapy.
Get ten to fifteen thousand steps every day.
Swap processed foods for whole foods.
Exercise (I prefer strength training) three to five times per week.

Mindset, Biohacking + Building The Body of Your Dreams With Roger Snipes
Roger Snipes is a bodybuilder, biohacker, and fitness entrepreneur. In today's conversation, we discuss the role that mindset plays in achieving your dream body, how Roger uses biohacking to upgrade his body and brain, and so much more.
In this episode, you'll hear:
- Rogers background
- How mindset builds the body
- Rogers favorite biohacks
- Roger's food philosophy
- The importance of brain health while building your dream body
Roger Snipes is a fitness entrepreneur with an unshakable desire to improve the world. The thousands of images that are scattered across the internet are a very small portion of who Roger really is. He was born in 1979 and grew up in what most would perceive as a not so fortunate circumstance. The neighbourhood was crime stricken and most who dwelled there either ended up in prison or remained on government supports schemes. At 17 years old Roger was homeless. Living with an abusive father he ran away packing few items in search for escape. His father was an alcoholic with a psychotic behaviour. This translated in Roger being abused not just physically but psychologically too. The way out was either suicide which was contemplated more than once or to flee. Rogers stepmother (who had divorced his father) gave him shelter and helped him gain some sort of structure in his life. Follow Roger on IG @RogerSnipes and visit his website here.
