Welcome to Ben Greenfield's Weekly Roundup!
In this weekly post, I share with you my most interesting discoveries of the week, including the latest news on the fronts of fitness, nutrition, health, wellness, biohacking, and anti-aging research. I also recap my upcoming events and special announcements so you can keep up with opportunities to learn, giveaways, discounts, and more!
Help Your Kids Discover Their Passions
How do you raise motivated, passionate kids without micromanaging them? That's the subject of my recent appearance on the Old Fashioned On Purpose Podcast with Jill Winger.
I share insights into my family life, providing a background on the homeschool routine Jessa and I use, and discussing the nuances of my newest book: Boundless Parenting.
We explore the concept of natural consequences versus helicopter parenting, and I emphasize the importance of leading by example and showing our kids how to live a healthy lifestyle through our actions.
Whether you're a homeschooling parent, someone with limited resources, or simply seeking guidance on raising motivated and passionate kids, this episode offers practical tips and strategies you can start using today. I also touch on the delicate balance between mentoring your children and allowing them to find their own paths, while avoiding the trap of living vicariously through them, in addition to valuable advice for helping unmotivated kids find their inner drive.
If you're curious about effective parenting methods and want to nurture a positive, growth-oriented environment for your children, you'll want to tune in to this episode.

Product Of The Week
::: Get 20% Off This Often-Overlooked Cognitive Power-Up ::::
Whether you're a Yale grad working through complex algorithms or a stay-at-home parent managing the daily challenges of child-rearing, in the modern world your cognitive abilities are constantly put to the test.
But what if you've been overlooking a potent cognitive enhancer, hidden in plain sight due to common misconceptions? I'm talking about nicotine.
Now hold on just a minute and hear me out. I'm not here to suggest you develop a smoking habit. The harmful health risks tied to sucking down cigarette smoke are well documented, but the issue is with the delivery system of tobacco, not with nicotine itself.
As a standalone substance, nicotine has significant benefits: It can enhance cognitive performance by increasing attention, focus, and memory recall, without the classic jitters of caffeine. This isn't your grandad's tobacco-chewing habit, it's an intelligent approach to mental optimization.
The solution lies in a product that delivers the benefits of nicotine without the perils of traditional tobacco consumption. Meet Lucy, a game-changing nicotine gum.
This carefully formulated gum isn't just another nicotine replacement, it's an innovative tool designed for mental and emotional performance, providing a clean, quick kick of cognitive enhancement right when you need it.
So, how about getting a head start on your brain-boosting journey?
Lucy is offering my readers 20% off in an exclusive discount. Just click the link and use the discount code BEN20 at checkout for 20% off your purchase. It's your turn to experience the cognitive enhancement that nicotine can provide
Walk For Water: August 8th, 2023
The team and I here at Ben Greenfield Life will be participating in a special Walk For Water event this year. Around the world, 2.2 billion people lack access to safe water. Millions of women and children walk more than three miles to collect water for their families every day. Often this water is not safe to drink, resulting in illness and even death, but we have the power to change this. I invite you to join us by walking for water yourself. Just $50 can provide clean water for one person for life. Learn more here.
Disrupt: September 29 – October 1st, 2023
Join me for the Disrupt 2023 Event in Atlanta, Georgia, from September 29th – October 1st. This event is oriented towards entrepreneurs and health practitioners alike centered around the topic of making healthcare truly healthy. This highly practical and immersive workshop will feature live Q&As, my top secrets for career success, and much more! Learn more here.
Couples Collective: October 25th – 29th, 2023
Couples Collective is an exclusive and immersive way to explore health, wellness, and mindset with your significant other. Jessa and I will be leading a health optimization and relationships workshop, alongside many other awesome couples. This is a small event, and access requires you to interview with event-holder OWN IT to ensure a right fit. However, for those who are said fit, this event is designed to bring you into deeper union within your relationship and onward into greater connection with your life, love, health, and happiness. I'm looking for 6 to 7 powerful couples to come join me at the event, are you one of them? Learn more here.

Asking A Quick Favor About My New Book Boundless Parenting: Tools, Tactics & Habits of Great Parents.
As you may know, in February of this year I released Boundless Parenting: a labor of love made up of interviews with some of the most incredible parents on the planet and their combined wisdom.
This book is designed to be a guide to, well, guiding your child in a world where navigating the act of raising a family has become a lost art.
The interviews in Boundless Parenting range from Bryan Johnson of Blueprint to my friends Dr. Dan and Merily Pompa, and many, many more. The text is chock full of all sorts of tools and tactics, from teaching your kids how to fast (and when it would be appropriate) to the ways Jessa and I have invested in the Greenfield family legacy. It has everything you need to go from lost-puppy-without-a-clue to grade-A super parent, and also has plenty of wisdom and actionable information for well-seasoned parents.
Now Boundless Parenting is available as the ultimate audio experience, as each chapter's narration comes not just from me and my wife Jessa, but also from each contributing parent's voice.
That’s right, you get to hear each parent read their chapter from their own perspective, making this audiobook come to life.
The parents, including my very own mom, my dad, myself, my wife, and many other models of practical parenting wisdom, delve into the fascinating realms of education, discipline, parenting, legacy, and so much more with specifics like:
- The best methods for developing lifelong immunity, cellular resilience, mental toughness, and overall health in a child
- How to manage your time, deal with overwhelm, care for yourself, and maintain high levels of productivity and health while raising children
- Family mission statements to family brands, traditions, and routines that foster pride and a strong identity in children
- Parents like Naveen Jain reveal how anyone can start a non-profit for their child for generational wealth building
- The crazy, controversial primal secrets of “tiger dad” parents like The Liver King and Joe Desena
- Lenore Skenazy on why she's America's Worst Mom (and why you should be too!)
- Joseph Anew and Emilia Run's advice on respectful parenting, slowing down, and controversial topics like co-sleeping
- Angie Fletcher on the intriguing traditions she began with her oldest child as a single, divorced mother
- My own parents Gary and Pat Greenfield on how they raised me and my 4 siblings to approach the world in a far different, outside-the-box way compared to other kids
- And much more!
I’ve even included a sneak peek just for you in a podcast I recorded last week, so you can start learning right here, right now!
Listen to me go over my love and logic parenting philosophy, how Boundless Parenting came to be, and other sections directly from the book.
Because parenting isn’t something you have to do alone. Remember the saying “It takes a village”?
