Topics Discussed in this Episode:
- Bryan’s health journey
- The tricks that people think are helping them get their energy back
- What you can do to better support your energy
- The connection between energy and hormones
- The long-term effects of not addressing burnout and fatigue
- Energy-cultivating practices
- The difference between men and women when it comes to addressing the issue of energy
- When it comes to supporting your energy, creating a little space for yourself and giving yourself a break can make massive changes over time.
- If you have reduced melatonin, your sleep won’t be as restorative, and your body isn’t going to do as much detoxifying and regenerating work. As a result, when you get up in the morning, you’re very unlikely to have those little spikes of serotonin and cortisol that tell your body to get up and go.
- Hormones and neurotransmitters work in balance, and they have rhythms such as the circadian rhythm.
- When you’re lacking in energy, your immune system gets down-regulated, and so you become more prone to getting sick.
- We all have something that we’re here to do, offer, share, cultivate, or create. And when we don’t have the energy to do that, it’s going to be a massive struggle to try and birth whatever it might be.
- At the end of the day, do something that’s not stimulating and allow your mind to truly relax. Nothing does that better than being in nature. So leave your phone for a while and go for a walk.
- Supplement with ashwagandha (2 to 5 grams before going to bed).
- Take medicinal mushrooms.
- Supplement with a vitamin B complex.
- Practice grounding.
- Practice qigong.
- Do the Legs Up the Wall Yoga pose.
“There are tools, and there are things outside of the mainstream paradigm that can definitely support us. And often, it’s the only way that we actually get to the root of what’s really going on.”
“Having this fatigue and burnout pattern going on really holds us back from doing what we’re here to do and from being who we’re here to be.”
