Week 17 | Meet Magnesium, Melatonin and CBD: For When You Need To Just Fall Asleep or Lower Anxiety

--Audio Guide-- Sunday nights, “just as the sun is starting to set, the gap between the hopes for myself and the reality of my life start to diverge so painfully”. I heard that quote on a Ted Radio Hour podcast once. It perfectly summarizes the Sunday scaries - you know, the dread that comes and keeps you from sleep at week’s end. In week 5, I touched on the dangers of raised cortisol levels and the damage high stress levels can do to your body. Here in week 17, I will discuss supplements to help you chill out, especially when you’re trying to get to bed and worry is all but welcome. As always, before taking any supplements, please consult your doctor or medical professional. 1) Magnesium

Week 16 | Heal My Heart So I Can Feel Again: Ghosting, Simmering, Icing and Other Modern Day Break U

--Audio Guide-- One of my favorite songs right now has a line, ‘heal my heart so I can feel again’, and I guess it summarizes perfectly why I decided to take this year long journey to discover what it takes to sustain good health and happiness over the long term.

Week 14 | There is Brain Like Tissue In Your Gut: How The Status Of Your Stomach Is Directly Linked

--Audio Guide-- You know that half an hour before you leave your apartment for a date? Deciding to do things that don’t really matter like watering your plants, talking to your cat or adding yet another coat of mascara? Or is it just me? Am I the only one that gets a little nervous when about to sit to a meal with a potential future holder of my heart? Those things are all variant behaviors stemming from stress and the happenings in your stomach, well we call those butterflies. They flutter in before dates, speeches, job interviews, jumping out of airplanes and so on and they happen because there is a brain in our belly.
