SPECIAL GUEST JASON SEIMER
Jason’s definition of happiest: “To live the most amount of your time, the happiest!” Live how you want and do what makes you happy. There was a long time that Jason was not happy. Find your happy and keep doing that.
WHAT WAS JASON’S LIFE LIKE NOT HAPPY?
He was depressed in high school and was very hard with on himself. He would beat himself up and be down. This had a downward spiral effect. The more bad things that would happen the more they turned into a mountain of gloom and doom. Later on in therapy after college, he found out he had Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
“You can retrain your brain to be better and healthier. I worked with therapy to control these negative thoughts that led me to depression. When certain thoughts came into my head, I can now put up a mental stop sign and re-route my thought process,” says Jason.
JASON’S DREAM CAREER
As a boy, Jason used to sleep with his baseball mitt dreaming of being in the big leagues. When he didn’t get drafted to play on his favorite team; he got the 2nd best offer of being hired at 21 to do video production for the Baltimore Orioles. He would do things like the player music video, blooper videos, marketing videos, the highlights reel, you name it. He worked at this job 10 years and got burned out at about year 7 because you were working at least 70 hours a week or more, especially during season.
JASON’S BIG CHANGE
Jason moved onto a new job with a production company in town, but that lasted for a very short 4 months. He just decided he didn’t want to work for anyone anymore. He wanted to make his own rules and control his own destiny and life. So he put the word out across the internet he had his own video production company. Hear about his crazy wonderful life and what he is doing now to make money that includes video production but also dusting off his guitar!
CHANGE YOUR LIFE
Take a risk. If you are in a job or relationship that is not making you happy and is stressful and it is time to leave. It is better to be alone than be with someone who does not make you happy and is negative in your life. It is also important that if you or your partner needs alone time; that is respected and honored.
HOW TO LIVE A BETTER LIFE
You don’t have to belong to an expensive gym to have your best health and fitness. Not being healthy and in shape affects all areas of your life from sleeping too much, not eating healthy, not working out, then clothes get tighter. You need to kick off with some momentum and get started, and go a few days, and keep going. The first changes Jason makes when he gets off track is to drink more water, eat healthier, eat lots of fruit and veggies, and get running. Jason makes these healthy changes and in two weeks, the pants are not as tight and everything changes. Listen to how his life changes as his fitness and health improves. Great stuff today! Dr. Dave will definitely have Jason back!
