What are your cornerstone habits?

This week on The HERO Podcast we're looking at the idea of keystone or cornerstone habits.

What the heck are they?

Eseentially, they're habits that form the foundation of a healthy, meaningful lifestyle. The bare bones, if you like.

The habits that facilitate other positive changes. The ones the kickstart a positive feedback loop, and really aid you on your hero's journey.

No doubt - these habits are gonna vary quite a bit from person to person.

But on today's show I'm sharing the ones that work well for me, and help keep me on the straight and narrow. Hopefully, they'll get your creative juices flowing so you can come up with your own.

Let's take a look.

What we cover in this week's episode of The HERO Podcast: 

  • How certain habits can spark a negative, downward cycle, and how you can begin to break that cycle today.
  • How to form the habit of regular meditation, and how this can have a knock-on effect on the rest of your life.
  • The potential power of movement, food, social interaction, journaling, and much much more.

Time for a Q&A episode

If you've followed Health Room for a little while, you’ll know that when you sign up to my newsletter to get The HERO Toolkit and updates from the blog, I ask you to let me know about your greatest challenge when it comes to living a healthy, fulfilling lifestyle.

And if I have any tips that I think might help, I’ll share them with you.

Now I was doing a Youtube series where I answered said questions, but in all honesty - the time it was taking to record, edit and release videos was starting to get a little too much to juggle. There are only so many hours in the day.

So I thought I'd start making my way through the backlog of questions, and share some of my answers with you guys here on The HERO Podcast instead :)


My theory is that if one person is struggling with something, then it makes sense that others are too. So by sharing my answers here, I can potentially help more than just that one person.

So if you do have a question or challenge related to nutrition, movement, mindfulness, entrepreneurship or habit changing - get in touch. And if I have anything useful to share, I'll address it in a future episode of the show.

Let's get started.


What we cover in this week's episode of The HERO Podcast: 

  • How to get started with mobility training, improving active flexibility and enhancing how your body moves.
  • Three simple tips to help you fit a movement practice around a busy schedule.
  • The long-term strategy for overcoming binge eating and improving your relationship with food.

"Accountability breeds response-ability."

Stephen Covey


Who is holding you accountable?

Time for another solo episode of The HERO Podcast, where I dig into another super important principle in forming lasting, healthy habits:


If you find yourself slacking or you're prone to giving into temptations and returning to your old behavior patterns, this is definitely something you're gonna want to explore and experiment with.

Let's take a closer look.

What we cover in this week's episode of The HERO Podcast: 

  • How being accountable helped me change my mindset and physical training from one that was destroying my body, to one that promotes long-term health, mobility and strength.
  • How you can enlist friends and family to help keep you on track towards your goal (even if they aren't joining you on your journey).
  • Some of the best apps and online communities you can use in conjunction (or instead of) real life accountability partners.
