Self-improvement – once a women-centric activity, now more and more men are showing up in yoga class, in meditation and in holistic health. Justin Stenstrom is at the forefront of this exciting movement.
Nine years ago, Justin went through a huge transformational period. He freed himself from depression anxiety and panic attacks, and began helping others overcome the same struggle. Elite Man Magazine was born. The website is a collection of advice for men, to help them gain confidence and become true gentlemen. His podcast interviews the best minds from the business, dating, health, fitness and social worlds.
Depression is characterized by regret of the past; anxiety is fear of the future. Either way, you’re not in the present moment. The key to overcoming both these mental conditions is getting back to the now. Justin’s got nine simple steps to help you do just that:
1. Realize you’re not going crazy. Depression happens to most of us at one time or another.
2. Use a combination of hypnosis, meditation or yoga (Justin’s favorites are Eckhart Tolle, Paul McKenna and Dr. Andrew Dobson)
3. Live in the present moment.
4. Exercise, move around
5. Get enough sleep! We’re typically under-sleeping, but this increases our stress, causes cortisol levels to go through the roof and decreases serotonin.
6. Improve your diet—good fats, complex carbs, healthy protein—optimize what you’re putting into your body.
7. Take supplements—one of the best anti-depressant supplements is magnesium.
8. Socialize! We need human connection to fully thrive.
9. Find a purpose in life. Whether it’s a hobby, career change or following a passion. Find the thing that makes you jump out of bed every day, and go after it.
