The Gabby Reece Show

Aug 9, 2021

My guest today is Michael Easter, author of THE COMFORT CRISIS and professor at UNLV. I listened to and read this book and was really excited to speak with him. Michael shares a comprehensive look with studies and data on how our very natural and healthy desire to be comfortable is in some ways crushing our overall sense of well being, peace, and enjoyment. This is not a doomsday conversation, but a realistic approach to inserting conscious habits into our lives that help tip the scale in our favor. He shares how being cold, hungry and bored in the Arctic was some of the greatest weeks of his life. 

I also appreciate Michael letting me learn more about the ways in which he achieved sobriety and how that perspective shift led to the path that he is on now.

Can you imagine that most of us spend more than 90% of our time inside?
