Have you ever felt pressure to present a perfect image to the world, hiding your flaws and struggles?  In today’s Habits & Hustle episode, I chat with reggae/hip-hop artist Matisyahu for a remarkably candid conversation. The former Hasidic Jewish rapper opens up about his journey of self-discovery, addiction struggles, and finding balance in life. Matisyahu's honesty is refreshing as he discusses his daily cannabis use, past cocaine addiction, and the challenges of maintaining sobriety. Rather than striving for an idealized version of himself, he's learned to accept his imperfections while still pursuing growth. As he puts it, he's traded in the "race car version" of himself for a more balanced "family station wagon" approach to life. This conversation reminds us that authenticity and self-acceptance are far more valuable than presenting a facade of perfection.  Matthew Paul Miller known by his stage name Matisyahu is an American reggae singer, rapper, beatboxer, and musician. Known for blending spiritual themes with reggae, rock and hip hop beatboxing sounds, Matisyahu's 2005 single "King Without a Crown" was a Top 40 hit in the United States. Since 2004, he has released seven studio albums as well as five live albums, two remix CDs and two DVDs featuring live concerts. What We Discuss: Matisyahu's journey from Orthodox Judaism to a balanced spiritual approach The impact of October 7th on Jewish identity and unity Challenges facing Jewish artists in the current political climate Balancing family life with a music career Struggles with addiction and the path to recovery The use of cannabis and its role in Matisyahu's life Finding authenticity in the music industry Reflections on fame, success, and personal growth The creation of the song "Ascent" and its powerful message The importance of self-acceptance and embracing imperfections Navigating career challenges and adapting to industry changes …and more!

Have you ever considered the benefits of sitting on the floor instead of in a chair? In my Fitness Friday episode of The Habits and Hustle podcast, I explore this fascinating topic with my guest, Aaron Alexander, an expert on functional movement and health. Spending time on the ground, as many healthy cultures around the world do, can have a profound impact on your musculoskeletal well-being, digestion, and circulation. Aaron explains that sitting on the floor helps to heal the joints, bring new fluids to the joints, circulate lymphatic fluid, and improve digestion by keeping your legs closer to your vital organs. You'll also discover the concept of "neat" (non-exercise activity thermogenesis) and how incorporating more movement into your daily life can lead to significant health improvements. Aaron Alexander is a Movement Coach, Creator of the Align Method, Author, and Podcast Host.  What we discuss:  The benefits of sitting on the floor compared to sitting in a chair Low incidence of osteoarthritis in cultures that spend more time on the ground  Improved digestion when sitting on the floor Better circulation and lymphatic fluid movement when sitting on the ground The concept of NEAT and its importance for health The dangers of outsourcing mechanical efficiency to devices like chairs  The importance of wiggling and moving while sitting, whether on the floor or in a chair The ideal position for the spine and hips when sitting on the ground  Thank you to our sponsor: Therasage: Head over to therasage.com and use code Be Bold for 15% off Sleep Me: use code sleepbetter at www.sleep.me/habitsandhustle  To learn more about Aaron Alexander:  Aaron's Podcast - https://www.alignpodcast.com/ Aaron's Instagram -  @aaronalexander  Find more from Jen: Website: https://www.jennifercohen.com/ Instagram: @therealjencohen Books: https://www.jennifercohen.com/books Speaking: https://www.jennifercohen.com/speaking-engagements Learn more about your ad choices.

Join me and my friend Liron, a fitness coach from Los Angeles, as we discuss the complex relationship between fitness trends, body image, and attracting potential partners. We share personal stories and insights into how men and women design their workout routines in hopes of gaining attention from the opposite sex. We reveal how looks and health intersect in the social environment of the gym.  We also talk about the concept of "parallel play" at the gym, which is a unique way for people to work out individually while still experiencing a sense of community. This shows the multi-faceted nature of modern workout culture. We also explore cultural beauty standards and how they influence relationships. We look at how subjective attraction can lead people to pursue a "trophy" partner, and the potential judgments that can arise from relationships with large age gaps. We discuss dating preferences, examining how much weight men and women place on physical attributes versus qualities like security and confidence, which could be the ultimate universal attraction. Don’t miss this episode as we give our thoughts on how dating apps have revolutionized the search for companionship, but may also complicate the path to lasting connections.

Women, have you ever wondered if you should be training differently than men? Tune into today’s episode!  In this episode, Liron and I dive into the often debated question of whether women should train differently than men. Our discussion explores the psychological and physiological aspects of exercise preferences and the importance of a well-rounded fitness routine. We address the tendency for women to gravitate towards cardiovascular exercises, often due to concerns about building too much muscle or appearing "bulky." However, we emphasize that women are meant to lift weights just as much as men and that doing so offers numerous benefits, especially as we age, including improved bone density, muscle mass, and metabolism. Throughout the discussion, we stress the importance of symmetrical training for both men and women, highlighting the aesthetic and functional benefits of working the upper body. While we acknowledge that the best exercise is the one you'll actually do, we encourage listeners to embrace shorter, more intense workouts for optimal results. Liron Kayvan founded BFLA in 2019. He’s a NASM Certified Group Fitness Instructor, Personal Trainer, and Transformative Life Coach. Liron has competed in Amateur MMA, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and Rugby and has been a Fitness Coach for over 10 years.

Being diagnosed with something like ADHD can feel like you’re carrying a huge sign that says “I can’t focus”. And in a world that’s not built to accommodate neurodiversity, achieving your dreams can feel impossible. So how do you work with your neurodivergence to create a life full of success?  In this episode of Habits & Hustle, I’m joined by Jeff Karp, PhD as we discuss the challenges of not being diagnosed with ADHD until 7th grade while being determined to not be held back at school. He also shares his story of becoming an esteemed academic in an academic world that didn't suit him and what that taught him about the power of determination and perseverance. We also discuss methods to managing distractions in a world built to distract us, the profound personal evolution that hit through COVID, and how to break the negative patterns that no longer serve us.   Jeff Karp is a Harvard Medical School professor with a PhD in biomedical engineering at Toronto and did a postdoc in biomaterials at MIT.

Ever wondered who gets all those actors in shape for those massive roles? Want advice for your own fitness, diet, or business from one of the hardest-working people in the space? This episode is for you!  In today’s Fitness Friday episode on the Habits and Hustle podcast, I chat with Don Saladino about the importance of hard work when it comes to fitness. Genetics can play a small role, but they never outweigh someone’s work ethic. We also dive into building muscle as we age (hint: it’s not impossible!) and the importance of nutrition when it comes to body composition.  Don Saladino is a Coach, Film & TV Superhero Trainer, & Fitness Entrepreneur. From training Hugh Jackman for Wolverine, to Anne Hathaway for Catwoman, and Ryan Reynolds for Deadpool, Don has a lot to offer in terms of what it takes to get superhero ready. Having thousands and thousands of training sessions under his belt he offers diet, exercise, and just plain life knowledge for anyone, not just those at the top of their game. Oh, and he's one of the nicest people in the industry.  What we discuss:  Hiring a coach vs following an Instagram influencer  Changing body comp by cleaning up nutrition Building muscle as a seasoned human Genetics versus hard work The importance of a rest day Find the full episode here:  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/episode-205-don-saladino-coach-film-tv-superhero-trainer/id1451897026?i=1000593506464  Thank you to our sponsor: Pendulum: Head over to www.pendulum.com and use code JENCOHEN for 20% off.

In an age where screens and social media are eroding our kids' self-confidence, it's time to rebel.  We can't just stand by as their self-esteem and dreams get crushed under the weight of the digital world. The next generation of world-changers deserves better - and we've got to show them how to build the resilience and belief in themselves to make it happen. In this episode of Habits & Hustle, I’m joined by Sonny Caberwal, founder of the game-changing Legends Build Legends app. This visionary entrepreneur is on a mission to build unstoppable confidence in kids from the ground up. After a major health wake-up call made him reevaluate his priorities, Sonny created a brilliant solution to tackle the modern crisis in children's mental health and social skills. We also discuss the unintended impact of overparenting, the dire need for resilience training in Gen Alpha, and how a simple shift in perspective can turn perceived "weaknesses" into superpowers. You'll hear strategies for leveraging technology to personalize learning, foster community engagement, and instill a lifelong practice of positive affirmations. Sonny's taking the lid off alternative education models, predicting how corporate big dogs could revolutionize the industry. Sonny Caberwal is the CEO and founder of Legends Lab, a non-profit focused on supporting the awareness and accessibility of programming and the assessment of confidence in children. The Legends Lab developed an inner fitness system, inspired by confidence routines elite athletes use, that’s easy and fun for parents to do with their kids.  What we discuss… (00:00) Rethinking education for the next generation (19:08) Building confidence and self-efficacy in Gen Alpha (29:53) Personalized technology in education  (41:29) The need to embrace differences for success (50:50) Building resilience and connection through parent-child interactions  (01:00:43) The power of self-affirmations  (01:23:51) Private education vs. traditional schools, alternative education, and online communication (01:55:45) Corporate involvement in education (02:00:23) Collective efforts towards positive change  …and more!

I love the topic of "Habits and Hustle"! It's amazing how our daily habits can truly shape the course of our lives. Building positive habits not only helps us stay disciplined but also paves the way for success. https://www.pinterest.com/PackagingMart/ Hustle, on the other hand, is that relentless drive and determination to achieve our goals. It's the fuel that keeps us going even when the going gets tough. When habits and hustle work hand in hand, there's almost no limit to what we can accomplish. https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/packaging-mart
