My Latest Fascinating Discoveries: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
Since the dawn of mankind, humans have discovered and developed various ways to manage their mental state.
Today, if you want more energy you can drink a coffee, a Red Bull, a Monster energy drink, or more; if you want to feel sedated you can drink alcohol; if you want to escape your problems, you can use recreational drugs; if you don't want to feel depressed, you can take anti-depressants; if you don't want to feel anxious, you can take anti-anxiety drugs; or if you are having difficulty falling asleep, you can take sleeping pills.
While those substances may be effective in the short term, the long-term side effects can be pretty damaging. Now, I am not opposed to leaning on tools and tactics to shift my mood. Like most people, I don't enjoy feeling tired, depressed, or stressed. Thankfully, I've found ways to effectively manage my mental state naturally.
In this podcast episode with Jim Poole, the founder of NuCalm, I talk about how the NuCalm device is one of the few things that I own that I consider to be “non-negotiable” in my daily routine. (And in fact, that was my second episode with Jim – you can listen to the first one here.)
The NuCalm is a next-level cranial electrotherapy stimulation device that uses both a relaxation 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. The team at NuCalm has spent the past 14 years testing, clinically proving, refining, and simplifying complex neuroscience to produce an easy-to-use, safe, effective, and reliable platform that brings you quick relief.
Earlier this month, the team introduced its newest model and app called NuCalm 3.0, which showcases a variety of new features:
- More affordable – as low as 50 cents per day.
- Easier to use – all you need is a mobile device and headphones.
- More flexible – you can purchase any channel (Rescue, FlowState, PowerNap, Focus, Ignite, DeepSleep) you like on a monthly basis.
- Available for immediate use – once you purchase a subscription, you can download the mobile app and use it immediately.
As you may imagine, I don't call something the “best stress biohack that exists” lightly, so if you're ready to put down your substances, I highly recommend looking into NuCalm.

My New Parenting Book Is Officially Available Now!
After two years of interviewing some of the top parents on the planet…
…. from crazy macho Alpha dads like the controversial “Liver King” and Spartan race founder Joe DeSena…
…to peaceful backwoods, unschooling, off-grid gardeners, and homemakers (including my children’s wilderness survival instructors and my own wife Jessa)…
…to outside-the-box thinking fitness icons like Kelly and Juliet Starrett, Paul Chek, and the Vega “Fat Fueled Family”…
…to a host of other entrepreneurs, billionaires, single moms, and dads, my own dear parents, pastors, education experts, legacy builders, wealth managers, and many others who have created impactful, happy, and resilient children…
…I’ve finally put the finishing touches on a 600+ page parenting book that is the most comprehensive parenting book that exists. It’s like the blueprint for raising a human.
It’s called Boundless Parenting: Tools, Tactics & Habits of Great Parents, and it’s kind of like Tim Ferriss’s Tools of Titans or Tribe of Mentors, but for parenting. In other words, this is a book that takes the best of the best of raising babies, children, and teenagers, decoding discipline, planning education, creating legacy, meaning and purpose, diet, nutrition, fitness, tackling the in-and-out daily nitty-gritty of being a successful parent with practical tips from the trenches and tons more.
Basically, it’s the book I wish I had existed when I first became a parent, and thank goodness, Boundless Parenting is now officially done and has been unleashed on the world.
This book has been a labor of love, and I'm beyond excited to see it finally come to fruition.

::: My Go-To Hack For Enjoying Gluten (And Save 10%):::
I may be a biohacker, but I love gluten-packed food like bread and pasta.
However, with glyphosate exposure from pesticides and herbicides, stress, leaky gut, and other modern challenges, gluten has become a bigger issue than ever before in human history.
Gluten Guardian is one of my favorite supplements because it allows me to enjoy gluten-containing foods without negative consequences. A blend of six plant-based proteolytic enzymes, it includes Peptidase DPP IV, a potent gluten-digesting enzyme that has been clinically proven to break down gluten. Gluten Guardian also contains three enzymes that break down starches and sugars, making it specifically designed to support digestive issues related to gluten and casein found in wheat and dairy.
Finally, AstraZyme – a proprietary blend of plant-based proteases, Panax ginseng, and Astragalus – helps improve amino acid and peptide absorption at the cellular level. By converting gluten and casein into amino acids that your body can use, Gluten Guardian helps minimize immune responses to incompletely digested gluten and casein.
If you're someone who enjoys bread, pasta, or any gluten-containing foods, I highly recommend giving Gluten Guardian a try. It's a simple yet effective way to biohack your digestion and improve your overall health.

I just wanted to quickly thank all of you who ordered a copy of my new book, Endure: Tools, Tactics & Habits for Spiritual Stamina.
