Key quotes and takeaways from the show:

Get to the next meal.

Be a good listener.

You need help!

“Do the best you can. With what you’ve got. Where you are.”

7.5 to 9 hours of sleep is not negotiable. Do the maths and make it happen.

If you’ve ever had a baby, you know how to go to sleep because you taught the baby how to sleep.

Stress is catabolic (breaking-down aspects of metabolism, as opposed to anabolism which is building-up aspects).

Find things that make you laugh. It changes the way you feel.

You control your thoughts.

Damian only trains 2 to 3 hours per week!


Exercise can be simple!
