Tuning Into Your Body

Episode Summary

Learning to listen to and understanding your body’s needs is a powerful tool as an entrepreneur. In this episode we discuss some of the way we have learned to listen to our bodies, including a larger discussion on Shaunae’s Whole 30 experience to learn which foods best nourish her body and mind.

Episode Notes

Feeling stressed? Tired? Foggy? Your body is telling you it needs help. When our body isn’t functioning properly, this can affect our mental health and our business too! Instead of just “powering through,” we need to address what’s going on in our bodies. In today’s episode, we are discussing tuning into your body – how it’s feeling and functioning, what it needs, and ways you can give back to it.

Our Favorite Skincare Treat

Your skin will let you know if you are feeling stressed or not well. Certain foods or lack of water can make it go crazy too. That’s why giving it love with face masks and rollers is so helpful. We absolutely LOVE our rose quartz facial rollers. These rollers are the perfect way to treat yourself. Not only are they great for your skin, they improve blood circulation in your face, help with sinuses, decreases puffiness, and soothes your skin. Keep your roller stored in a fridge – a cool roller tightens your pores and wakes up your face at the end of a long day. 

Shaunae’s Experience with Whole30

Food plays a huge role in our bodies. It can be used to fuel us and give us all the wonderful energy we need. Shaunae wanted to see how food could affect how she felt so her and her husband tried Whole30. Whole30 emphasizes whole foods and eliminates sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes, soy, and dairy. Though it did have it’s tough moments, it was eye-opening to see how you can really give love to your body with whole foods. They feel SO much lighter, healthier, and happier. There are so many benefits like sleeping restfully and having plenty of productive energy. But Shaunae’s favorite result has to be the way she looks at food now. She had to read the ingredients in everything. This program really made them THINK about what you actually put in your body.

Additional Tips to Tune into Your Body

Going to a chiropractor at least once a week can improve your health and wellness. Some of the benefits of chiropractic care include pain relief, improved energy levels, decreased inflammation, increased mobility, better immune function, and regulated hormone function. 

Acupuncture is another great way. It is an alternative therapy that involves inserting thin needles into targeted areas of the body that help you in so many ways. 

Reiki is also a great way to not only help your body, but help your energy too. Reiki is a healing technique where a therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body. 

Meditation is a beautiful way to check in with yourself. Meditating allows you to free your mind from all the thoughts and stresses of the day and just focus on one thing. It can help you relax, sleep better, and stay focused for your day ahead.
