The Gear Show with Lisa Gerber
About This Show
Conversations with gear-obsessed individuals to give you, the active outdoors person, the knowledge to be more comfortable, have more fun and get better at something in the outdoors. It's more than specific gear and app recommendations, which we discuss but we also talk about pushing ourselves in the outdoors because we know it makes us better in our personal and professional lives. This means tackling fear, setting ourselves up for success, making ideas happen, adjusting when life takes us on a different path than our dreams.
There is no such thing as bad weather or a bad day, just bad gear.

15: Science of the Mind: Training our Brains For Better Physical Performance
< 1 day ago
Today is part 2 in our mini series on longevity, aging and wisdom. It’s the continuation of my conversation with Dave Leffmann, physical therapist, soon to be published author, and good friend and mountain playmate - today - we talk about our mind - the fastest and most adaptable tissue in the body - our nervous system and how our thoughts and outlook on life, scientifically translate to our physical abilities. We have the power to use our mind to do better not just mentally, but physically and it’s interesting because for many, the mind is likely the most overlooked piece of gear we own. I don’t want to get morbid on you, but often we fail to appreciate the important things in our lives until after they are gone. Dave and I have this conversation through the lens of a loved one(s) with terminal illnesses living out their last days to the fullest, and the positive outcomes from that, the work that it has led him to do. Hopefully we all walk away from this promising ourselves to focus more on our nervous system and to live our own lives more optimistically and fully.

Having said that, here his YouTube channel and information about his upcoming book: Caregiving 101 YouTube Channel Book will be coming out this fall via Summertime Publications and called: Caregiving 101: A Practical Guide to Caring for a Loved One
