Jimmy Clare #1:

 

Welcome to another episode of CrazyFitnessGuy Healthy Living Podcast/ weekly motivation with CrazyFitnessGuy. Now before we dive in to this bonus episode, I'm going to share with you the top four shows from season two. Obviously, we have more shows in season two, but these are the top four that was played from season two of our podcast.

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

 

And make sure you subscribe to the show so you can know when season three comes out. The first show I want to give you a little background on is International Day of Calm. Celia Kibbler created a international holiday called Day of calm.   During this episode, me and her talk about what the International Day of Calm is, how to get started and how you can participate.

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

And we dive into how to stay calm and everything else. Take a listen.

 

Celia Keebler #2:

 

Expand the fist real wide because this holds all that feeling that you're having. And when you let it go, you let it go. It's a good way to teach kids. It's even a good way for adults to relax. There's so many ways for you to control the way you're reacting in this situation, and that's the key. You're in charge of that. Always remember that people that are calling you names are being obnoxious to you.

 

 

Celia Keebler #2:

 

 

That's about them. That is not about you. If they're calling you a liar or they're calling you something, commenting on what you look like that day or the way you're acting, that is really about them, they are projecting their feelings on you. So you have to just keep reminding yourself,

 

 

Celia Keebler #2:

 

 

not about me, not about me. And if you need to walk away, walk away. Not everyone is our cup of tea. Don't feel like you have to be friends with everyone. Don't feel like you have to calm everyone. Don't feel like you are responsible for keeping the peace in your family.

 

 

Celia Keebler #2:

 

 

You are also responsible for taking care of yourself. That old adage you can't pour from an empty cup. You can't so selfcare is really important. Exercise good, eating, good sleep, meditation is great. Anything that helps you to think journaling is wonderful and makes a great gift for somebody.

 

 

Celia Keebler #2:

 

 

A Journal, a nice pen. So all of those things can help you become a calmer person and specifically addressing the areas of your life that you know cause you stress. Because stress is contagious. And if you can learn how the common area of your life even better lot what our free classes are about, then you're that much closer to being completely calm as a person.

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

Well, for me, I know what stresses me out. I've been journaling a lot, trying to figure out putting the puzzles pieces together, what's been bothering me and whatnot. And I think what's been bothering me. And it might sound silly, but it's just been a mix of things. Like me, I just felt like all I do is just doing the same thing day in and day out. But then also, the other thing that has been bothering me is that I have all my emails at the moment, literally going into one inbox. Like, I have all this social media stuff.

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

 

I have all my marketing tools, and it's like, oh, somebody sent you a message on here. I really don't care. Once I log into a social media account, I will care. But do I need it as an inbox reminder? No, I really don't. And it's like, I already have it on my phone. Do I need a 500 reminders and say, Send me, send you a message? Well, I'll get to them eventually. I'm not a rude tool, except for the people who message me. And it's like, hey, do you want to go and cryptocurrency?

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

 

No. I was like, just point out, no, not interested exactly. But I think that's what's getting to me. It's just because I'm getting bomber with all emails. And then when I'm going on these podcast, interviews and events and summit events, and I want to be able to reply to those emails just as contact emails, I don't want them to be like, hey, let's have everything mixed together because it was such a great idea to do it this way. I was like, this was a stupid idea and I should never have done this ever again.

 

 

Celia Keebler #2:

 

 

Yeah, but you make some great points, Jimmy. First of all, the word no. When you become a people pleaser or someone that feels like they have to make everyone happy, it's very easy to fall into the habit of saying yes to everything, even though you have a million things on your plate. This one needs help, or this one needs you to do something, or this one needs you to call something and you're saying yes to all of this, and all you're doing is getting stressed out and have creating a lot of anxiety when you just realize that you also have to take care of yourself.

 

 

Celia Keebler #2:

 

 

And when somebody asks something if you have a bunch of appointments, you get to say no. Say, you know what? I wish I could help you, but honestly, I don't have five minutes today to do it, so I'm sorry, but I won't be able to help you. Maybe I'll be able to help you next time and say no. An organization is a huge way to help your life get more organized. One of the classes we're going to have during the day of Calm on April 5 is how to organize your office, how to live so that you can feel.

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

The next episode is one of my next favorite episodes. And one of the other episodes, another episode that you, the audience loved from season two. Is autism a gift or a curse? With Ben Levin in this episode, we talked about we talked with Ben about his artistic gifts and whether he thinks it's a curse or not. Take a listen,

 

Ben Levin #2:

 

just out of curiosity. So was it hard for you growing up on the autism spectrum? It was. I felt different in a lot of ways, especially for me community and spending time with others wasn't easy. I had to do a special program in order to learn how to want to do it, I guess, to be inspired. But those types and even now I struggle with things like when situations get overwhelming, I shake my knees, I

 

Ben Levin #2:

 

roll my shoulders, stuff like that. And sometimes the fact that I had to be homeschooled for this program did make me feel a little different. And the fact that there were some things I just didn't understand about other kids. Like when I was five, I went to a special needs camp. But when the kids were playing tag, when we went to the playground, they were screaming. And some reason I was convinced that they were screaming because of me, that they were scared of me. So because of that, I became afraid to spend time with them on the playground.

 

Ben Levin #2:

 

 

There was fine and other activities except for gym or any other physical ones, because those types just made me think that they were scared of that they were scared of me because of all the screaming they did during those, and I just would sit by myself and watch. Then shortly after I went to the camp, I went on a picnic with family friends and some other kids to be good friends with one of the family friends, if you get what I'm saying.

 

Ben Levin #2:

 

 

One of the kids back then, I hadn't realized that millions of people around the world have the same names. And when I heard one of the kids had the name of which one of the kids from my camp also had, and when they started playing games, part of me assumed that that kid had already informed everyone that I was dangerous, I guess. And that made me think the whole world knew or something. I have no idea what I was thinking back then. And I spent three years afraid to be on playground unless I was alone.

 

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

For me growing up with autism, I didn't really know I was autistic until I was in 11th grade when I got invited to my own IEP meeting, which was literally the biggest waste of time I've ever been to.

 

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

 

Like, today I joke about it because I can literally tell you what scenario was. I was in this small conference room with a long table. Some people sat on the right side. Some people sat on the left side. Guess where I said that I sat at the head of the table and I got to see both sides arguing, this would be better for Jimmy, and then this would be the better for Jimmy at your IEP meeting?

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

 

Yeah. Because I was at a certain age in high school, they basically said it was like an upcoming for my age and like, oh, it shows you the maturity. But before I even got to go in, they remind me, Just let you know you're not allowed to speak at your own IEP meeting. I'm like, so I can’t talk in my own meeting about me?

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

And the next episode that people love to listen to is Living healthy and Happy with Autism with Anna Laura Brown. In this episode, we talked to Anna about living with autism and how she lives healthy and happy with autism.

 

Annalaura Brown #2:

 

It's not that they didn't believe in drugs. Like, we did do antibiotics when we were really, really sick and things like that. And we'd go to the doctor when it was really, absolutely necessary. But my mom really believed in trying to use more at home natural holistic remedies and things like that instead. And back then, it was right at the very beginning where some doctors were starting to advocate for putting kids that were on the on his spectrum or even kids that had digestive challenges or other things on things like the gluten free case and free diet or that become much more popular with kids on the autism spectrum. Or there's things like a Candida diet to help if you have too much yeast infections, different things like that. So when I was little, I was on that diet for quite some time.

 

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

 

But then as I got older, I got off of it and I moved more towards just trying to eat as much whole, unrefined, unprocessed food as possible. Trying to live as healthy a life as possible, in other words. And what I mean by that is try to not eat food that comes primarily from a package or a box. In other words, it's like actually food. It's food. Where, like, if we were to show it to our great great grandparents, they would actually recognize it as food. Sounds interesting.

 

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

Well, for me, growing up, what I'm going to say might sound like I'm bashing my parents, like, in a bad way, but I'm not. But it's going to come out wrong, and I know it's going to come out wrong, but we were quite the opposite back then. We ate out a lot. We had a lot of Mac and cheese, peanut butter and jelly. And I think it was just because,

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

to be honest, I don't know why we ate that way. I think we just because that's what my parents gave us and that's what we ate. It was fine. But what caused me to gain weight was a mix of bad food. I mean, like, by bad food, maybe like junk food and what not. But then I was also on this medication years ago where it was helping me with my moods that fluctuate throughout the day, and it kind of just messed everything. Like, have you ever seen the movie The Joker, the recent Joker movie?

 

Anna Laura Brown #2:

 

 

I haven't actually.

 

Well, I'm not going to spoil it or anything, but it's really depressing. But The Joker, he pretends to be happy. Like he's all fine, but he's not. But my point is, this medicine made me feel like I was just masking everything. It's like, oh, I'm just happy and everything. And this feels so fake and forced. And I didn't like the feeling, but it had side effects. And one of them was weight gain. And I wasn't a big a person who worked out back then. This was like when I was stressed because of bullying, I came home and started eating my favorite junk food.

 

Anna Laura Brown #2:

 

There's a lot of reasons parents give their kids food that's less than healthy. Sometimes they just don't know better. Sometimes that's just the way that they were raised. Or sometimes they're really, really busy. Because the reality is that sometimes at least I find that a lot of parents and people think that it's easier to serve junk food. If you're busy, you don't have a lot of time to Cook that kind of thing.

 

Anna Laura Brown #2:

 

So one of the things I try to do is either through recipes on my blog, through an ebook that I've written, through some of the recipes that are actually in the book that I published and just sharing on social media and other things. I try to help parents realize that there are ways that you can actually create meals that actually taste good, that aren't junk and that actually don't take that long to Cook.

 

I definitely got to check out that book of yours because I saw you gave me a sneak peek at the first chapter. I didn't get to it, to be honest yet. I've been busy catching up about a lot of emails in the last four days of this week so far because I came back from my two and a half week break. And then I'm like emails. I love them so much. You should sell them. Some of them take a listen.

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

And last but not least, number four, most less than two episode from season two is One Habit of the World's Greatest Leaders book with Joanne Daniels on this episode right before Christmas. I would like to say last year, I believe this past year in 2021. I talked to my friend Joann Daniels, who talks about her co author book that she did which is called One Habit of the World's Greatest Leaders and how she got how she got invited to it, what her definition of leadership is, and a lot more.

 

Joann Daniels #2:

 

I'm very passionate about leadership, and my definition of a leader is somebody who's making and bringing impact into the world and somebody who you can't be a leader if you don't have a following, so you can be a manager, you can be an executive. But if you don't have people who are behind you, who believe in your message, who want to carry that forward in their own lives, then you're not a leader. So I think that we always need people around us more so than they need us.

 

Joann Daniels #2:

 

 

We need them more than they need us. And they always say that management and supervision. And I've had many different types of and you'll see, you know how it is in your career. There's all different types of teachers, there's all different types of bosses. They're all different types of supervisors.

 

Joann Daniels #2:

 

 

But the ones who have, who make an impact and who make a difference in the world are the ones who want to bring value, and they have people who support and believe in their message. And that's really what I think leadership is all about.

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

I think my definition of leadership would be if you can't follow your own set of guidelines and rules that you look by, then you're not really a leader. Because if you can't follow your own advice, how do you expect other people to take your advice and say, hey, I want to go do what this person says, but that person does the exact opposite.

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 


I met there some days where I fall short of follow my own advice at times, but it's not like, again, have it. Sometimes I just haven't very, very off day others. I'm on top of my game and I'm like, I can do anything I want to put my mind to. And there's other days where I hate everything about technology and I just want it to go away.

 

 

Joann Daniels #2:

 

Yeah, I agree. And I think you make a great point. I don't think again, I believe, too that you should live your own mantras. But I think that people recognize that even though we're still human, even though we're out here and we're trying to bring our message into the world, we're still human and we can have an off day. And I think that's what makes us more relatable.

 

Joann Daniels #2:

 

 

Nobody wants to be coached by somebody who's perfect. We want somebody who can understand and empathize with what we're going through. And I think that's a great part of it. I love your backstory where, how you came to be Crazy Fitness Guy and the bullying that you overcame and all of that. I think that that's what makes you relatable. If you had just been some overconfident job right from the beginning, it would probably be harder for people to

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

yeah, I totally agree with that because I kind of find it hard to relate to some of those.What did I see the other day?

Adela was having private small concert with Oprah along with these other celebrities. It's not very inviting if people at home watching our concert.

 

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

 

And then there's, I guess, all the Alist celebrities. And it's not really inviting or relatable to any of us. So no offense, Adele, but not to the bash anyone. But just like I wasn't feeling it, I watched a few minutes of it.

 

Jimmy Clare #1:

 

I didn't know what to think of it. To be honest, I'm not going to go on a rant on it. I don't have any rants to say about it. But let's get back to your book. So how long did it take you to contribute to that book?

 

Joann Daniels #2:

 

It only took about a month because every individual really just dedicated themselves to one chapter. And then we did a Press release.

 

Jimmy Clare #1:
