Legend Wim Hof on Shattering Perceived Mind-Body Limits using Cold
???? He ran a half marathon above the Arctic Circle, barefoot, only wearing shorts.
???? He swam underneath ice for 66 meters.
???? He stood covered with ice cubes for more than 112 minutes.
Today we’re talking to the legendary Wim Hof, a Dutch extreme athlete, also known as “The Iceman.”
Using ‘cold, hard nature’ as his teacher, his extensive training has enabled him to learn to control his breathing, heart rate, and blood circulation and to withstand extreme temperatures.
His Wim Hof Method combines breathing, cold therapy, and commitment that teaches people of all ages to control their body & mind to achieve extraordinary things. He believes that everyone can tap into their inner potential without having to invest the same decades worth of study, travel and daring.
???? “When we are loved, we don’t see fear.” ????
“The Iceman” Wim Hof is full of wisdom, and has not only helped advance scientific understanding, but also accomplished extraordinary feats of human endurance, including 21 Guinness World Records.
Today he’s sharing all about:
???? How his wife’s death became the ultimate sacrifice for millions
???? His three-pronged approach to total mind-body wellness : The Wim Hof Method
???? The research and the science behind his approach (that is appropriate for any age!)
???? His thoughts on anti-depressants and anxiety meds (before AND after I told him I was taking them)
???? Differentiating between real fear and perceived fear to find greater freedom.
???? How his breathwork and cold water can bolster your immune system (you will feel superhuman!)
???? The easiest way to get started doing his simple & transformative wellness practices.
