The Wholly Well Rules for Fatigue, Hormones, Mood, and Sleep – Episode 48

by | Feb 23, 2023 | Podcast

If you are listening to this then you are a part of the Wholly Well community! If you’ve been here for a while, you probably already have picked up on some of the core rules and principles that I talk about all the time about health, hormones, sleep, and more.

You may hear the word “rule” and think of it in a negative light. Rules are typically there to limit or restrict us. But I want to change that mentality! The rules of the Wholly Well Club are here to offer you more, not less, in your life: more energy, more fuel, and more of feeling Wholly Well!

If you need a refresher on the basics or if you are new here, you won’t want to miss this episode!

Things to Remember

1) Eat food before coffee. I say this so often it could be considered our “golden rule” of the Wholly Well Club. When we drink coffee on an empty stomach we are actually wreaking our hormones, increasing our cortisol, and increasing our adrenaline which all leads to burning out our adrenals. I know a cup of joe in the morning has become a staple of our culture, but we need to change our habits! Check the show notes for an easy, and tasty, way to improve your morning jolt.

2) Walk daily. Our 21st-century lifestyle is widely sedentary. We go from our offices to our couches to our beds. It’s no wonder that we feel like we have zero energy! We need to get our bodies moving daily. I recommend taking two 20-minute walks each day. And as an added benefit, you’ll also be getting that sweet sunlight as you get outside!

3) Watch what you “feed” your mind. What we focus on we will find. If you are complaining all the time, you are actually telling your subconscious mind to focus on negative things. As a result, those are the things that your mind will begin to notice, even if they are nestled in between positive things. I know this is a hard one. But by taking time to journal, meditate, fast from social media, and start looking for the positive things around us, we can change our mindset.

4) Make sure your body is eliminating toxins daily. That’s right! I’m talking about poop. This is your body’s natural way to get toxins out. I like to start my day by drinking a glass of warm, lemon water and a probiotic-rich food or capsule. This just gives my body the extra boost to optimize digestion and ensure its number one priority is a number two. 😉💩
