15 Rules to Live By (Update and Replay)

After a long weekend at the Remedy Food Festival, Matt has lost his voice. To help save his voice (and your ears) from further damage, we decided to revisit on of our favorite episodes … the 15 rules we live by.

When it comes to food and fitness habits, I don’t think rules are a good thing. Guidelines, sure, but without a little wiggle room, it’s too easy to throw up your hands and give in when your willpower runs dry.

But when it comes to living a meaningful life ? and ensuring that my system for managing it works ? I find it’s actually easier to be less flexible ? and to follow a set of real, actual rules.

In today’s episode, we share the 15 rules we live by, the firm boundaries that help us live the lives we want and find balance and happiness.

They might not all be for you, but I hope you’ll find a nugget or two to add to your own set of rules for living.

What to Do When You Can’t Stay Motivated

We’ve talked a lot about motivation over the past 163 episodes … how to find it, how to keep it, and what to do when you have it.

But what do you do when you just can’t stay motivated? When even after all the tricks and accountability, you simply don’t have the motivation to run, eat healthy, or do whatever habit you’re trying to maintain?

That’s what we discuss in today’s episode.

And a quick SPOILER: We might not land on what you’re expecting.
