We are delighted and very excited to have Wim Hof joining us today! Wim is known as The Iceman because he is an extreme athlete who can withstand unbelievably cold temperatures. He has a new book that has recently come out, called The Wim Hof Method: Activate Your Full Human Potential, which has just hit the New York Times Bestseller List. The Wim Hof Method is a combination of cold water exposure, breathing techniques, and meditation.

Many of us are feeling overwhelmed with stress right now. Wim explains that we are built to be connected with our stress mechanisms at will to defy any kind of stress. If we don’t go into the stress mechanisms of our brain in the way that nature intended, we leave them unstimulated. Those underdeveloped mechanisms will eventually be unable to work in connection with our will when something truly stressful happens to us. Wim has a lot of wisdom to share, so be sure to stay tuned today to learn about his unique method for coping with stress naturally.
