The James Swanwick Show

Are you thinking of starting a business? Maybe you want to, but work a full time job…and extra time is hard to come by. Tai Lopez is with me today as we chat about the journey of beginning your first entrepreneurial venture. He believes it's very important to avoid extreme ideologies when first beginning. For example, maybe you’ve been told to quit the steady job and paycheck, and just go for it. Or maybe you want to have the perfect fail proof plan in place before you set sail into business… But the answer always lies in between. Make a transition plan, and stick to it. If you don’t like what you’re doing, make an 18-month transition plan (as Peter Drucker says). And whatever you do, make sure to start with knowledge. Research the successful entrepreneurs in your field, and find out WHY. Enjoy the show! Let me know what you think on twitter and instagram @jamesswanwick and  www.jamesswanwick.com

How harmful can blue light be? Well, besides disrupting our melatonin production, it’s been linked to a myriad of diseases including cancer. During the day, you don’t really need to worry about your blue light your exposure …but at night it’s a different story. Until the advent of artificial lighting, the sun was the major source of lighting, and people spent their evenings in relative darkness, besides natural candlelight.  But nowadays, easing into bed with a laptop or tablet makes it harder to take a strong snooze, because it mimics the sun (signaling to you it’s daytime).  But there is hope! You can wear specially designed blue blocker glasses, which have an orange tint on the lens, that block most of the harmful light. Think of the orange construction glasses. Ideally you want to wear these 4 hours before bed, so your body can prepare for the night soon ahead. Enjoy the show!

Is your commute to work slowly killing you?  Is being stuck in traffic slowly adding to your waistline and stress levels?  I’ve just left my office and I’m walking down Sunset Boulevard at the moment, watching as traffic is piling up. Fortunately I only live five minutes down the road, so my stress levels are not getting spiked.  In the book “The Happiness Hypothesis” by Jonathan Haidt, he mentions the longer your commute in traffic is, the higher your cortisol level goes up (stress). What does your daily commute look like? Enjoy the show! Let me know what you think on instagram and twitter @jamesswanwick  www.jamesswanwick.com

Is there a hidden danger lurking in your delicious, beloved green smoothie? Today I’m showing you how I make my morning no fruit green smoothie, with lots of leafy greens, good fats, and natural anti-inflammatories.  But I’m not just adding the spinach/kale straight to the blender…I’m lightly browning them on the stove to destroy most of the oxalic acid first. Oxalic acid is a naturally occurring chemical in plants and animals and is also consumed in a variety of different foods such as leafy greens and seeds. Concentrations of oxalic acid are pretty low in most plants, but there's enough in spinach, dark leafy greens and beet greens to interfere with the absorption of calcium and minerals these plants also contain. But don’t avoid these super foods just because of that. They have a lot to offer nutritionally, such as folic acid, potassium, magnesium, vitamin k, vitamin c, and many others. Enjoy the show!
