Here is your weekly dose of “6-Notes on Sunday,” a list of ideas, products, episodes, quotes, exercises, and more that we believe are worth sharing.
Josh “Cricket” Markette sits with Tim —
Tim “bros out” with two-time National Champion, Josh “Cricket” Markette, as he talks about his Ultimate career, his mentors, and much more.
Kevin Rose with another great post —
Yes, we shared an Instagram post last week from Kevin Rose, yet this one we like just as much or even more. He explains the Wim Hof method of breathing – we’ve tried this and it definitely works to help with control and stress response. (We find that committing to 30 Wim breaths before entering and during the first minute of ice baths makes it much easier to relax into the ice and suppress the primal desire to tense up when the cold stress hits your body. We found this to be an amazing way to recover and enter Zen Mode.)
Help with focus and productivity —
We use this sand timer to help set an intention and habit of focus so we can get more deep work completed. It helps us follow the theory of productivity called time boxing.
A recipe for your next tailgate —
We shared a recipe from this blog previously, but football season is back and who doesn’t love buffalo chicken dip? Here’s a paleo version that’s delicious and packed with extra nutrients.
A playlist to get you into your zen mode —
We like to recommend relaxing music as you roll and stretch, which is much needed as you prep for the series. Here is one of our favorite Spotify playlists for this called MP – Rolling & Reggae.
A quote to ponder this week —
“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.”
― Francois Auguste De Chateaubriand
Found in a book Tim is currently reading by the Founder of Patagonia Called “Let My People Go Surfing” (Tim is considering calling his first book “Let My People Play Ultimate)
Wishing you an amazing week and good luck in the Series!
