Stress Is Good for You (Here’s Why)


Imagine waking up each morning with MORE energy, LESS stress, and a STRONGER immune system.

Now, what if you could achieve those things with nothing more than your own mind?

You might think that’s impossible — maybe even crazy.

But my guest today has PROVEN beyond a shadow of a doubt that it’s actually all TRUE.

He’s been nicknamed “The Iceman” for his ability to withstand freezing cold temperatures. In fact, He once ran a half-marathon barefoot in the Arctic and summited some of the world’s tallest peaks in nothing more than shorts.

His name is Wim Hof, and on today’s episode, he and I are going to dive deep into some of his secrets for staying fit and healthy in any conditions and at any age.

Based on his new book, “The Wim Hof Method”, we’ll also discuss the benefits of cold, how Wim was able to withstand the effects of the dangerous E. coli bacteria with nothing more than his MIND, and how YOU can use his techniques to reduce stress and feel healthier than you have in years.
