New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
– Powerful New Biohack For Powernaps & Stress
NuCalm: The NuCalm is a next-level cranial electrotherapy stimulation device that uses both a cream and mild stimulation to help your brain interrupt the adrenaline and cortisol release by mimicking what naturally occurs in your brain right before you sleep. It includes an app with “music” – which is actually neuroacoustic software that delivers frequencies to your brain which take you down to theta brain wavelength. This thing lets me get a 20-minute intense period of relaxation even when I can’t nap, and I’m now ducking away and using it nearly every day, particularly during travel and on airplanes. It’s spendy, but in my opinion, well worth it. You can get it here and save 65% off the first month of any new monthly subscription.
– Book That Is Inspiring Me As A Father & Husband
Point Man: How A Man Can Lead His Family – A big thanks to my friend James Quandahl, who manages my Christian Gratitude Journal project for recommending this book to me. “Point Man” encourages and equips men to lead their families successfully through hazards and ambushes like divorce, promiscuity, suicide, and drug addiction. I’m getting tons of practical insight on topics such as a father's influence, maintaining purity, and husband-and-wife teamwork. It’s extremely inspiring for any man who wants to live for their family, build a legacy and be a true leader. This is a good one for your spiritual discipline war chest. Get it here.

Featured Product: Kion Clean Energy Bar
As a busy CEO, coach, professional athlete, international speaker, and top 100 podcast host—I needed a bar that would meet the intense demands of my lifestyle, while also satisfying my strict nutrition and purity requirements. I’m happy to say, THIS IS IT.
After years of habitually eating low-quality protein bars, I started having elevated blood sugar, gut rot, energy swings and toxins present in my blood tests. So I wanted to do something better. I wanted to learn how can a bar provide adequate amino acids for recovery without spiking insulin and glucose, or creating mTor and longevity issues from excess protein intake?
You're about to discover exactly how I did it. Meet the Kion Clean Energy Bar.
