My Latest Fascinating Discoveries: Cool New Things I’m Trying, Books I’m Reading, And More!

Supercharged Muscle Repair & Athletic Recovery On The Go

Kion Aminos is my fundamental supplement for fitness. I drink them every day for energy, muscle, and recovery.

Nobody starts using this stuff and doesn’t swear by it.

And now this just happened. Aminos travel packs!

Aminos are the absolute Swiss Army knife of supplementation, but even more powerful than those tiny tweezers and toothpicks, they’re essential regardless of your level of activity.

New research shows that EAA supplements rich in the amino acid, leucine, work even better than traditional EAAs to stimulate muscle protein synthesis, aid in muscle repair, and support athletic recovery.

Kion Aminos contains 40% leucine, with the remaining EAAs in optimal, scientifically-backed ratios shown to help you grow stronger muscles and recover faster. They have all of the lifeblood power of a massive steak, but they’re plant-based too.

Click here to get your hands on the new Kion Aminos packets (and save $ as well) ;).

For Those Of You Who Have Been Asking Me How To Book My Personal Massage Therapist

The holiday season is just around the corner…

…and what better gift to give a loved one (or yourself) than the gift of healing?

Every two weeks, my massage therapist Donna Mills over to my house for a treatment and, let me tell you, her hands are just magic. A recent podcast guest of mine (listen here), Donna specializes in guiding you into new narratives of wellness that result in profound self-transformation. You do this together with the elements of:

Psyche: narrative and language-focused conversation
Soma: body and energy work, and movement therapy
Spirit: connecting to the cosmic wisdom through knowing your cellular wisdom

Donna’s treatment is meant to be a safe yet profound pivot in your holistic wellness. The work with her requires deep courage, but mostly wonder and curiosity. Together you identify outdated and limiting patterns of past experiences, and work through the associated somatic anchors by releasing energetic and musculoskeletal blocks. In other words, releasing “knots.” This deepens your self-awareness and increases your communicative relationship with your body, your life, and the life around you.

For example, Donna recently healed a very injured toe of mine by way of joint and fascia work, by slowly mobilizing a crepitus joint. At first, the treatment felt like I’d had surgery on my toe (ouch!), but when all was said and done the pain was completely gone. (There’s more about that in her podcast episode, “The Unique, Next-Level Future Of Bodywork, Fascia & Massage Therapy: Ketamine, Sound Therapy, Essential Oils, Trauma Release & Beyond With Donna Mills.”)

So if you’re looking to reap the benefits of the healing arts, I highly recommend Donna Mills, and you can check out her practice here. (Also, if you’d like to book Donna for any sort of event or gig, I have first-hand insider information that she would be down for that! 😉 

My New Parenting Book Is Available To Pre-Order Now

It’s officially done.

That is, I just put the finishing touches on my brand new parenting book – which covers and decodes everything from education to baby nutrition to discipline to legacy to finances to college and much, much more!

It’s called…drumroll please…

Boundless Parenting: Tools, Tactics & Habits of Great Parents.

This book isn’t just written by me and my superstar wife Jessa. Rather, I put together a dream list of amazing and inspirational parents who I admire and asked them to share their best-of-the-best tools, tactics and habits for raising incredible children in this modern world.

Part of my motivation to create this anthology of parenting wisdom was my own wish to know “all the answers” before I became a parent. I would have loved to have had the perfect parenting blueprint. Unfortunately, when Jessa and I were young parents, there was no step-by-step instruction guide that existed for how to raise impactful, happy, and fulfilled young humans – so we, along with most parents, walked into this life-altering journey without a blueprint.

But now it exists. Why try to go on this parenting journey alone and make time-wasting and life-changing mistakes when parents who have come before you can share with you all their insider secrets?

So now Boundless Parenting is here…I couldn’t be more excited, and guess what? Pre-orders are LIVE right now! Head over to to learn more and sign-up for pre-order notifications.
