You have the power to change how you feel, and how you see the world around you.

Today I’m sharing an important perspective on self-development: By improving your biology, you can improve your psychology. In this episode, I share the three concepts to help improve your physical and emotional state. I explain the impact diet and exercise have on your mood and provide a mindset exercise + tips for taking care of yourself. Life is better when your body is in tip-top shape — including life’s challenges!

First, I detail how I first entered the self-development world and why increasing my physical strength bolstered my emotional capacity. I share the link between blood sugar and mood and offer three concepts + action steps (including a mindset exercise!) to improve your biology and increase emotional resilience. This is my outside-in approach to physical and emotional strength. And now YOU have the inside scoop.

Try loving your body more by taking better care of it today. And see how you feel tomorrow.
