Here we go !

Let's get cut right to it.

1. View Morning Sunlight Everyday

Getting sunlight in the eyes first thing in the morning is absolutely vital for mental and physical health.

It promotes metabolic wellbeing, the positive function of your hormones and mental health.

TIPS:

  • Get Outdoors (even if it’s a cloudy day) without sunglasses.
  • How long is going to depend on the brightness of the environment. 2 minutes is the minimum. 20-30 minutes is ideal.
  • Don’t stare directly at the sun.
  • Ideally, combine being it with a walk to promote optic flow

2. Consume 2–4 servings of low-sugar fermented food daily

The connection between the gut and the brain has a profound impact on our health, and we should really be trying to enhance these functions to have a better life.

High fermented food diet increases microbiota diversity and decreases inflammatory signals and activity.

3. Consume 1,000+ mg of EPA daily

Omega 3 fatty acids are the building block of the brain, and we don’t make them ourselves. 

Membranes are made of structural fat and the maintenance of this membrane’s health is done by fats.

The three main omega-3 fatty acids are: EPA, DHA and ALA. We should try to consume at least 1g (1000mg) per day of EPA .Foods high in omega 3s: Salmon, mackerel, krill, sardines

For plant based diet: ALA(flaxseed, walnuts, seaweed): 10% gets converted into DHA and EPA.

4) GET ADJUSTED !

Getting adjusted lights up our prefrontal cortex !

WHAT IS THAT you ask ?

I'll keep it quick .. 

The prefrontal cortex is the most anterior portion of your brain, and sits right behind your forehead. It is responsible for a lot of things, including impulse control, focusing attention, planning and problem solving, memory, personality, and motivation. The prefrontal cortex also helps regulate your limbic system, another part of your brain that is responsible for behavioural and emotional responses, including fight or flight.

If our prefrontal cortex isn't working properly, then our limbic system is left unchecked. When we are stressed, the function of our limbic system increases further, and it activates our sympathetic nervous system. This triggers our fight or flight response leading to reduced regulation on blood pressure, breathing rate, heart rate and heart rate variability, as well as reduced resilience and sleep, and increased inflammation and gastrointestinal problems
