Today we’re going to talk about mental health. In business, a lot of the time you jump into business to be the go-getter person that really made a difference. You made this cool product because you’re great at the technical stuff but you’re terrible at marketing, or you’re great at marketing but you don’t really have a product. A lot of the time, there isn’t a good balance between what it is that you do with your voodoo.
You need to make sure that you have a balance in your life. Your body is your mind’s instrument, and your mind is all we have at the end of the day. Your mind needs to be in tip-top condition along with your body to be able to make great decisions, be informative about what you’re going to be teaching, and tell your clients how you’re going to be implementing your expertise. If your mind or your body is not in tip-top condition, you’re going to run into problems.

Make Sure That You Are Healthy
If you’re overweight or obese or your heart rate is extremely high, you’re not going to be doing your body any favours. You’re not going to be doing your mind any favours. If you’re smashing down energy drinks, and you’re eating from the pie shop all the time, you’re not going to be doing your body or mind any favours. Ultimately, you’re not going to be doing your clients and your bottom line any favours.
Get Enough Sleep
Overworking and under sleeping are just as bad as bad eating. If you are overworking and under sleeping, you’re not going to be making the right informative decisions and things are going to take too much time. If you’re in that boat, you’re just as bad as someone who’s obese and lethargic and doesn’t do any work or exercise.
You need to make sure you’re keeping your body in tip-top condition. I went through a process where I lost 38 kilos, but it was a long, hard stretch. It didn’t come overnight and it had to be a mental shift in the food that I was putting into my body.
As Greg Norman said, “You only get out what you put in.” And if you’re putting in the garbage, you’re going to get out the garbage.

You Have the Power to Change Your Life
I’ve changed around my whole habit: what I was eating, what I was drinking, and how I was sleeping. I started scheduling in sleeping blocks. I was originally a standard night sleeper, and now I’m what they call a polyphasic sleeper which means I sleep twice a day. It’s a nice way of I’m an adult who has a nano nap. It sounds nicer when I say I’m a polyphasic sleeper, doesn’t it?
I found that it worked better for me and the people that I’ve trained and tested with. In terms of diet, I have three to five times the amount of vegetables of what I have fruit, and I have five to six times the amount of fruit and vegetables to what I have meat. I have very little meat in my diet. It’s all up to you as to how you want to take that, but I found that meat was taking away a lot of energy and clarity from me. My life sounds boring because I’m about to say I don’t drink beer that much either.
But seriously, changing these things and having things in quantities that you can digest, small amount and small changes make for big changes as long as you’re doing it over a long period of time. I found eating less meat, eating less wheat both had an accumulative effect of me being able to sleep fewer hours at night and still feeling super pumped for work and very clear of mind. It was amazing and I suggest anyone who is having eating problems or sleeping problems to try it. I don’t have caffeine, I do drink beer occasionally but I did stop drinking beer for six months while I was on this body transformation. It’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle choice.
Try It Out
Macrobiotic lifestyle choice is what I went for and that is what I’ve been living with for years. It’s going really well so I suggest anyone trying that out. Remember: your diet is important and your body is your mind’s instrument.
