New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Morning Motivation: 4 Different Morning Routines to Try?
we all have different periods of our life where we’re plagued by different problems the thing is I’ve been through a lot in my life I’ve gone through a lot of different phases of my life where I have problems in one area of my life and I’m excelling in the other and vice versa so in this video I want to give you four different kinds of things that you can do first thing in the morning for four different situations that you might be encountering your life first we’re going to talk about is in your waking up stressed how do you combat that what’s a morning routine for that then I want to talk about if you have digestive issues in the morning or if maybe you’re rebounding from a lot of carbs and you’re trying to get into a ketogenic state morning routine for you there then I’ve got a morning ritual for you if you’re someone that’s trying to gain a little bit more focus maybe you’re being plagued by a lot of brain fog recently or something like that okay then the last one that I want to be able to give you is a way that you can get more self-discipline a morning ritual that you can start implementing to help yourself and get a little bit more disciplined and a little bit more on track so I’m going to give you ideas that you can use as rituals I’m gonna give you some product ideas and all kinds of stuff so let’s get right to it the first one that I want to talk about is a morning ritual that’s going to help you out if you wake up feeling stressed okay and this is something that I’ve combated a lot in my life wake up you feel like the whole world is on your shoulders you feel like you got a load of anxiety and it’s always right when you wake up and the reason we don’t want that happening is we don’t want this huge huge influx of cortisol right in the morning when we already have a surge of cortisol that’s naturally occurring in the morning so what can you do in this case honestly to reduce some stress in the morning right when you wake up change your alarm tone every single week I know this sounds kind of weird but it works you see our brain subconsciously start to recognize the sound of the alarm and we start predicting it which means every single time we hear that alarm we have a negative association with it so that means after about three or four days of hearing the same alarm tone we start associating negativity with it simply because it’s waking us up out of sleep and we don’t like that so if you have the same tone or the same song playing over and over you are already predicting in your subconscious that you’re gonna be unhappy when you hear it so one thing that I of practice doing is changing my alarm tone almost every single week even if it’s obnoxious sometimes go from a noxious tone to a not so obnoxious tone a lot of the science out there that says that you need to wake up gingerly you need to wake up softly doesn’t really apply the only time that going to apply is if you’re naturally waking up with the Sun the fact is whether it is loud noise quiet noise nice music or loud music that it’s obnoxious it’s still waking you up and disturbing you out of your sleep so you do want to just rotate that up and I will tell you it has been shown to reduce your cortisol levels in the morning it’s also been shown to make it seem to me a little bit more productive throughout the day so if you’re battling with stress in the morning that’s what you want to implement the next one that I want to talk about the next morning ritual that’s really really important is one if you are battling digestive issues if you’re someone that wants to burn a little bit more fat or maybe you’re trying to break down a little bit more of the food that you’re eating or maybe you’re recovering from a cheat meal this one is going to be my good old fashioned apple cider vinegar lemon water and cayenne okay I’ve done videos on this through and through you’ve probably seen him on Facebook you’ve probably seen him on YouTube the thing is this is a ritual for someone that is trying to get their body to utilize fats a little bit better and to down-regulate the ability to use carbs so basically the acetic acid that’s in apple cider vinegar allows your body to upregulate fatty acid metabolism what that means it’s going to better utilize fatty acids as a source of fuel so if you’re trying to get into ketosis that apple cider vinegar is going to help you immensely then if you’re someone that is already eating carbohydrates or you’re trying to transition from a carbohydrate rich diet into a ketogenic or low carb diet it’s going to decrease the amount of glucose transporters that are in the gut what that means is you’re gonna have less glucose transporters to carry sugar or carbohydrates around through the body which means your body’s just gonna process it and excrete it meaning less of a carbohydrate blood sugar impact then we’ve got the cayenne pepper here that dramatically increases thermogenesis for about 45 minutes after consumption it’s not a huge huge increase actually I mean it’s it’s a small amount it’s like 10 to 15 percent but still for 45 minutes you’re burning 10 to 15% more calories first thing in the morning when you’re already fasted that’s pretty darn awesome okay then the next thing of course we have lemons or we have limes that you can add to this the lime monoids that are in lemon and lime mostly in lime dramatically boost your glutathione levels now glutathione is your body’s inherent ability to detox so if you can boost your body’s natural ability to produce glutathione you’re putting yourself in a really good situation so thereby you’re burning more fat you’re processing less carbs and you’re actually excreting them and you’re boosting your body’s ability to detox so a tremendous physical remedy that you can use there as a morning ritual okay the next one I want to talk about is focus okay you’re someone that’s waking up and you’re trying to get focused one thing you might want to start doing is utilizing some mushroom coffee now huge thanks to for signetics for making this possible in this video because I reached out to them and told them that I’ve been using their product in the last second year or so and they gave me some product and I told them I’d mention them so the thing is is when you take four stigmatic or you take a mushroom coffee you’re not just getting the benefits of coffee because coffee is awesome we all know about caffeine and the fatty acid mobilization that caffeine stimulates that’s amazing basically what it means is caffeine is gonna help mobilize fat in the bloodstream so you can burn it more so when you add lion’s mane into the mix you add something that are known as nerve growth factors these nerve growth factors help stimulate the production of neurons and nerve endings in the right areas of the brain they’re gonna help you focus more so in this particular case we have two different nerve growth factors we have Erina scenes which are going to help you out a lot and then we also have Harrison owns okay what these two nerve factors do is they specifically help your brain activate focus measures with himself so basically allowing your brain to stimulate and have more electricity going to the areas of your brain that are required for focus combine that with fatty acid utilization coming from the caffeine and predominantly ketones if you’re in ketosis you’re in a really cool situation to light up your brain but then additionally we have chaga mushroom that’s in there okay the chaga mushroom is going to help you out with the immune support the whole idea of the immune support is to help balance out interleukin 6 and modulate inflammation what does this have to do with the brain well interleukin 6 directly affects the brain if we have inflammation in the brain that’s when we’re feeling foggy so this is a new little trick that I’ve learned recently that really has helped me out when it comes down to days that I need to focus additionally if you really want to make it fun even add some MCT oil to the mushroom coffee then you can really go for a ride because in your body’s producing more ketones in conjunction with the lion’s mane in conjunction with the caffeine and you’re just really off to the races the last morning ritual that I want to give you is for when you’re in a mode where you need a little bit more self-discipline yeah let’s be real here we all go through different phases of our lives where we have different idiosyncrasies and different problems in different areas where we flourish sometimes even I need a little more self-discipline and that’s where I learned that making your bed is something that is known as a keystone habit so when you make your bed first thing in the morning it sets something known as a keystone habit this keystone habit has a cascading effect where it causes you to go to the next thing we’re gonna have more self-discipline and more organized and the next thing and the next thing and the next thing so it’s this vicious cycle that’s a very very good thing just by starting off your day by making your bed in fact there was a study that took a look at 68,000 people okay what they found was that 59 percent don’t make their beds then they found that 27 percent do make their beds and they found that about 12 percent pay to have someone make their beds for them well what they found was that 71 percent of the people that make their beds we’re happy but also 62 percent of the people that don’t make their beds are unhappy and it just goes to show that when we’re focused on making our beds first thing in the morning it triggers our brains to be in a little bit more of a self-discipline mode we get more done we get a lot more accomplished overall we also have more self-worth we feel like we’ve accomplished something and that triggers a dopamine response within the brain so this is good for everybody you should be making your bed just to make your family happy but if you’re going through a period where you really feel like you need to harness some self-discipline then it might be a good idea to just make your bed first thing in the morning if you like these kind of videos that give you various morning routines for different kinds of people and different topics for different kinds of people let me know put them

Morning Motivation: 4 Different Morning Routines to Try – Thomas DeLauer
Change the Alarm
Since noise is a stimulus, it can cause people to react negatively to it, like any other stimulus
Stimuli that can not be controlled can cause more stress than stimuli under our control because humans like to be in control of their surroundings
Make Your Bed
In a survey of 68,000 people by Hunch.com, 59% of people don’t make their beds, 27% do, while 12% pay a housekeeper to make it for them.
71% of bed makers consider themselves happy; while 62% of non-bed-makers admit to being unhappy
Bed makers are also more likely to like their jobs, own a home, exercise regularly, and feel well rested, whereas non-bed-makers avoid the gym and wake up tired – bed makers are happier and more successful than their rumple-sheeted peers
Daily bed making becomes a “keystone habit,” something that kick starts a chain of other good decisions throughout the day
Mushroom Coffee w/ Lion’s Mane, Rhodiola Rosea, Chaga
Lion’s mane has the ability to stimulate the synthesis of (NGF) Nerve Growth Factor – NGF is necessary to nerve cell survival in the central and peripheral nervous system.
It is is a neuropeptide that helps maintain neurons, which are the cells responsible for helping your brain process and transmit information
Rhodiola contains an active compound called rosavin that has been proven to trigger a fat burning response in your body
Rosavin works by stimulating an enzyme called hormone-sensitive lipase which has the ability to breakdown fat that is stored in adipose tissue
Can also increase your stamina and endurance by increasing your red blood cell count – does so by increasing the oxygen-carrying capacity of our red blood cells, making it particularly effective at increasing energy, vitality and stamina
Chaga has an abundance of Beta-D-Glucans which help balance the response of the body’s immune system – normalize cholesterol and blood sugar levels (helps boosts the immune system when necessary, but slows it down when it’s overactive)
Chaga extract also increases the production of immune cells IL-6 and lymphocyte B
Apple Cider Vinegar
Contains acetic acid which suppresses body fat accumulation due to the upregulation of fatty acid oxidation
It upregulates PPARalpha gene expression, which is a gene that regulates fatty acid oxidation, in the liver, where almost all acetate in the portal circulation is metabolized
Is able to reduce glycemic and insulinemic responses to foods, such as a starchy meal, by delaying gastric emptying – decreases the activities of of intestinal glucose transporters and disaccharidases
