🐭⚡ INJECTING 💉 MORE INTENSE (BUT DIFFERENT) STRESS INTO YOUR LIFE

🐭⚡ It’s easy to BLAME (& THEN TRY TO ELIMINATE) STRESS when you lose your mojo, spark, inspiration, and feel stuck on the mouse wheel of life. Though instead of running away from it, you should consider INJECTING 💉 MORE INTENSE (BUT DIFFERENT) STRESS into your life? Find something that’s novel, goal-orientated, uncertain, makes you nervous, mentally stimulating, and pushes you outside your comfort zone. 🎯 You’ll be heading into uncertain and (imagined) unsafe territory, and your...

🪟🎯 WINDOW OF STRESS TOLERANCE

🪟🎯 Everyone has a WINDOW OF STRESS TOLERANCE which constantly grows or shrinks depending on what life is throwing at you. Ideally, you want to sit in the middle Optimal Zone as much as possible, where you’re stimulated just the right amount to handle everything in a calm, controlled way. This isn’t a stress-free zone by any stretch (because stress has its advantages in certain circumstances), but not to the point where your performance diminishes (i.e., you become Hyper-Active). Whe...

🏃‍♀️😤 HOW TO BREATHE WHEN EXERCISING

HOW TO BREATHE WHEN EXERCISING is seldom taught at any level though plays an enormous role in our ability to perform. Your mind/body has no idea what sport is, it’s simply physical and mental stress knocking your body out of homeostasis, and our breathing rate/depth rapidly changes depending on the intensity and therefore how much Carbon Dioxide (CO2) your mind/body wants to offload.   Nose breathing, mouth breathing, fast, slow, depth?? If you don’t have conscious control, then you’r...

👟💪 HOW TO GET QUALITY SLEEP AFTER EVENING TRAINING

Sleep is king 👑 and the absolute best recovery tool you have, but if you’re like me and often train in the evening, then there’s a good chance your sleep that night will be all over the show. EXERCISE is a form of STRESS, and when we ask our bodies to jump higher, run faster and lift heavy things a cocktail of stress chemicals (e.g., adrenalin, cortisol) is pumped around the body so we can do what we need to do. However, jacking your stress response 2-4 hours before bedtime is not a gre...

🌙📴 MINIMISE THE CURSE OF BRIGHT EVENING LIGHT

In the evening the way you view light could effectively be flying your mind and body to a different time zone, throwing your sleep and energy levels all out-of-whack! Viewing heaps of bright artificial light 2-3 hours before bedtime confuses your 24-hour master body clock (i.e., circadian rhythm), and upsets your sleep quality and duration by suppressing the production of the sleep hormone melatonin. Sleep is critical for the learning and development of young people and research has suggested t...

🥱😴 CALM THE MIND & BODY WITH THIS RECOVERY PROTOCOL

For whatever reason if you are struggling to switch-off, super wired after training or can't fall asleep, then this breathing protocol is really effective at turning off the racing mind, reducing heart rate and calming everything down. This technique gets more potent with practice, and personally I can go from very wired/alert, to dozing on the floor in 10-20 minutes. IMPORTANT: If you are doing it at night before bed then you will need to minimise the amount of bright light after you finish (e....

☀️☕ MORNING LIGHT PROTOCOL

Along with exercise, feeding and social interaction when and how you view light has the strongest influence over your level of alertness, mood, learning, and your ability to fall (and stay) asleep at night. Fundamentally, your body is a 24-hour factory and for it to function well it needs to know the time of day, and one way the brain works this out is by measuring the intensity of light hitting the eyes. Viewing light in the wrong way can screw up your wake/sleep cycle (e.g., it’s 11pm and yo...

💤💤 STRESS, SLEEP & ROUTINES

Your body is a 24-hour machine, so having routines that sync your internal clock to the current season has a massive impact on your ability to tolerate stress, energy levels, and whether you can fall and stay asleep.  At the end of the day sleeping is like landing a plane, not flicking a switch, so have a routine that starts 2-3 hours before bedtime. Whether you bounce out of bed or take a few hours to warm-up, have a routine for the first few hours of the day. Most of the time my...
