We’re creatures of habit. And sometimes, our predispositions can get us stuck in ruts (and we don’t even realize we’re in one until it’s too late). This blog is a wake-up call to anyone feeling out of sync or stuck. If that’s you, let’s TRY SOMETHING NEW.
innovate is the second (& most FUN) pillar of RISE
Get outside to PLAY.
It’s easy. Drop the ‘To Do’ list and step into the outdoors. Simply going outside and stepping into nature improves your dopamine levels and improves your mood. Dopamine is a FEEL GOOD neurotransmitter that our brains typically want so much more of.
Eat great foods and change your genes.
Your DNA is only 1/2 of your health story.. other 1/2 is up to you and how YOU CHOOSE to create your wellness.. this is EPIGENETICS. Epigenetics is the study of how your behaviors and environment affect the way your genes work.
The nutrients we put in our bodies can reverse or change our epigenetics and serve as a tool in preventing certain developmental diseases and cancer as well as delaying aging-associated processes. This is how we innovate longevity.
Chill the F* Out. Literally!
An ice bath or Cryo chamber goes a long way in improving circulation, deepening sleep, spiking energy levels, and reducing inflammation in your body. Some individuals refer to cold therapy as a libido pill (think vitamin V) for the entire body… well, that’s a fun BioHACK.
Get out of your rut: choose CREATIVE not complicated.
Time to innovate.
