Holding On To Stress Is Destroying Your Health with Jim Laird

APR 29, 202456 MIN


In this episode, Jay interviews Jim Laird, a revered strength and conditioning coach with decades of experience in training athletes across a variety of levels and disciplines. They discuss how improving his management of stress and anger also helped Jim overcome some serious (and dangerous) health challenges.

They highlight how holding on to negative emotions like anxiety, resentment, or hate can result in physical manifestations like shingles or even cancer. They also teach you how to embrace forgiveness and practice self-love as a critical step in the healing process.

Tune in if you want to gain a deeper understanding of how to more effectively manage the stresses of life, relieve yourself (and others) of past grievances, and cultivate an environment of self-love that facilitates holistic healing and personal growth.

"A strong foundation means eating good food, getting good sleep, and getting out in nature. Most people are building the foundation of their house on tools or magic pills, not on solid ground."  – Jim Laird
