In this Self Improvement episode, we break down 8 strategies you can put forth to improve your health.  Many of the themes discussed include valuing your own life, setting boundaries, letting go, and acceptance.  We talk plenty about taking care of yourself first, so you can then take care of other people.  I share my own struggles on each issue and offer up a variety of success stories and personal failures.

I also talk about the purpose of the John Riley Project podcast and what I am trying to accomplish.  Ultimately it is about making an impact in the world around me.  But where can we make the most impact?  In politics, culture or in our own life?  We also have some fun discussing Yacht Rock.  We break down the financial struggles of the Oceanside school district and we explore the recent news on the record median home prices in San Diego County.

We also discuss various other issues and people including Kenny Loggins, Steely Dan, Hall and Oates, Pablo Cruise, Todd Rundgren, Toto, Little River Band, Ambrosia, Christopher Cross, Lionel Ritchie, Michael McDonald, Sirius XM, charter schools, Poway Unified School District, South Park, Flagstaff, Palos Park, Smyrna, Poway, culture, self-esteem, prospect scoring, diet, loving yourself, Arthur C. Brooks, American Enterprise Institute, AEI, Democratic Debates, health.
