Have you seen the news on this emerging health topic lately?
Studies are being published everyday on the science behind gut health and productivity.
It’s pretty astounding.
Scientists are discovering that there’s a second brain inside the gut.
And that digestive health has a HUGE influence on everything going on in our bodies.
Including mental health. It’s fascinating.
So today, I wanna talk about the connection between your gut and your productivity.
Which doesn’t just mean that it’s hard to concentrate when you’re hungry. LOL
Which IS true… but that’s not the only impact it has on getting shiz done.
So I’ve got 3 hacks for ya, to prime your digestive tract for optimal performance. In your biz AND in your life.
I know it’s not the sexiest topic but it’s actually super important for productivity.
Because there’s this thing called the “gut-brain axis”.
Which is an emerging area of science that shows how a weak gut lining can negatively impact brain health.
See, your digestive tract can become kind of porous if you aren’t taking care of it.
And what happens inside your gut?
It separates nutrients from toxins.
Basically stripping out things your body doesn’t need and keeping what it does.
If your gut is healthy, it pushes those toxins further into your system to the right organs that process them.
But if you have a weak gut lining, those toxins can leak out of your digestive tract and into the rest of your body.
AKA straight to your brain.
It’s kinda crazy how this works, but this phenomenon called “leaky gut, leaky brain” has shown a connection between gut health and things like:
- Brain fog.
- Impaired memory and recall.
- Anxiety and depression.
- Even serious conditions like dementia and Alzheimers.
Now here’s the good news… this means that you can literally improve your brain function by improving your gut function.
And there are tons of ways to do this naturally… through lifestyle AND diet.
How to take care of your gut health for a more functional brain.
Hack #1: Drink water.
Do you feel like drinking more water is the solution for pretty much every problem?
- Dull, dry skin? Drink more water.
- Got a headache? Drink more water.
- Missed your airplane? Drink more water. LOL
See, drinking pure, clean water literally flushes your system.
It’s the #1 thing we need to keep our bodies in top performing condition.
Think about what you do when something gets gunked up or stuck.
Like a pipe.
You flush water through it to clear it, right?
Same thing for our bodies.
Hack #2: Turmeric
The second thing you can do to improve your gut health -- AND your productivity -- is to…
Add turmeric into your diet.
Turmeric is a super hot topic right now because it’s an insanely powerful spice for inflammation.
If you get bloated after eating certain foods, that’s a symptom of inflammation.
Really drowsy? That’s inflammation.
Gurgly belly? Same thing.
Turmeric will help train your body to have a healthier response to inflammation and mitigate the effects.
Here’s some super easy ways to add turmeric into your diet…
- You can sprinkle it into your food or into your morning smoothie.
- You can pop a supplement… Or
- you can get yourself some amazing turmeric essential oils. It won’t take long to feel a difference.
Now here’s a pro tip about turmeric I learned the hard way.
If you use the actual spice… be careful with it.
It can stain.
One time I was at a friend’s house and I spilled a little turmeric on her cream-colored kitchen countertops.
Totally didn’t see it for a good half hour.
My arm still hurts from the scrubbing it took to get it off. LOL
But don’t let that stop you from using turmeric.
Just be mindful and wash your hands thoroughly after using it.
Unless you like bright yellow surprises. LOL
Let’s move on to the third hack for gut health and optimal productivity.
Hack 3: Fermented foods.
Foods like kombucha.
It’s like the perfect summertime drink.
Not only is it delicious but it’s great for digestive health.
Eating fermented foods -- like kombucha -- can boost the good bacteria found in your gut.
Which means you’re strengthening your gut-brain axis naturally.
You can also go with foods like probiotic yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi.
They’re easy to find in most grocery stores and are super beneficial for gut health.
Here’s what I know to be true…
If you’re not healthy in your body, mind, and emotions… your productivity is gonna suffer.
Your work is gonna suffer… which means your biz is going to suffer.
Now of course you can approach all of this from the inside out… which IS ideal.
But it’s not the full story.
This has been on my mind lately…
People are afraid to say when they don’t know how to do something.
Like, people know they need to use Instagram for their biz… but they freeze up and just don’t do it.
Because they aren’t confident in the technical aspect of it.
This is an easily-solved problem.
This is why I put together this Instagram Tutorial Workshop.
Notice the word “tutorial” here.
Because that’s what this is.
Literally step by step on the key features of Instagram you’re probably not using.
Sure, you’ve got the standard “post, caption, filter” thing down from using Instagram personally…
But do you know how to use Reels? Or Live? Or create carousel posts?
If technical know-how… and fear of looking like a fool because you’re not confident in using these features is what’s holding you back?
Come to my workshop and I’ll show ya how to do everything you need to do on Instagram.
Seriously, if that’s the thing stopping you from going after the success you desire… I can help.
I WILL help.
The two LIVE workshop dates are:
- Tuesday, July 6 from 10:30am - 12:30pm MDT / 12:30-2:30pm ET
- Wednesday, July 7 from 10:30am - 12:30pm MDT / 12:30-2:30pm ET
There will be NO replays of this workshop… So if you wanna learn how to master Instagram for a super profitable biz, you gotta show up live.
Can’t wait to see ya there!
