How often do you negotiate with yourself on whether or not you are going to workout or eat healthy?

A lot of times it can feel like our brain is trying to do everything in its power to sabotage our quest for building the body, health, and life we desire… but what if that wasn’t actually the case?

What if that feeling that you have, that voice that you hear that says, “Don’t go workout now… it’s safer here on the couch…” was actually a good thing?

While our society often sees laziness as a glitch in our humanity that is designed to keep us from reaching our goals, Dave Asprey has another take on this experience we all have.

In his new book, Smarter Not Harder: The Biohacker’s Guide To Getting The Body And Mind You Want, Dave lays out a plan to help you leverage these feelings of laziness to help you accomplish everything you want in life and more.

On this week’s episode of the Exercise Is Health® podcast, Julie and Charlie sit down with Dave to discuss his new book and the elements of the plan he has constructed to help us all leverage laziness, as well as how we can start implementing this plan within our own lives today.

If you have ever searched for a way to override feelings of laziness only to find your willpower drained and your body exhausted, this episode is for you. You will walk away with actionable steps on what you can start doing to make laziness work in your favor and finally get the results you have been working towards.
