We have an admission that’s difficult to make: Rob has an addiction to gadgets.
Specifically, he has an addiction to gadgets that help him track and optimize his HRV, or Heart Rate Variability. This has become the go-to metric for many people who want to track or hack their health, and for good reason — it’s one of the greatest indicators of future health that we have.
But we’re trying to live a Blue Zone life, we’re trying to live past the age of 100 so that we can watch our families grow up, and there’s more to that than just being physically healthy. If you go visit the Blue Zones around the world — Okinawa (Japan), Sardinia (Italy), Nicoya (Costa Rica), Icaria (Greece) — you don’t see a bunch of people with tight butts and rock-hard abs constantly looking at their smart watch to see how the numbers have changed.
The lifestyle and pace of things is just so different in these cultures, so today, Kim is going to try to bring a little bit of that Blue Zone Vibe into the Work Hard Play Hard podcast (and Murgatroyd household) — without entirely squashing this healthy habit.
