by | Mar 7, 2020 | Health & Fitness, Performance, Personal Development

In this episode, I’m discussing what I have learned from the first four episodes, how I’m implementing some of the things, what I didn’t manage to implement and what I’ve learned from that. 

Some key takeaways are morning smoothies, pomodoro technique, mushrooms, mindfully using tech and questions to ask yourself to find your direction with life. 

The guests were Niels Vium, Daniel Espeland, Alaxander Avanth, Sarah Hemmeken.
