I am on a mission to help moms everywhere “get their brains back”! When I was working toward my first degree years ago, school was a breeze. I never had to study, just show up for most of the lectures and I’d ace every exam. Fast forward almost 20 years and after recently going back to school while raising a toddler and working full time, I found it extremely challenging to absorb the knowledge and struggled to get through the first semester. I realized that my brain wasn’t as sharp as it used to be, and I wondered if it was just because I’d gotten older. So I did some research. Come to find out, my lifestyle since having a child was likely the cause of my cognitive decline – a long period of sleep deprivation, combined with inadequate nutrition, and a high level of new responsibility left my brain in the gutter.
But I wouldn’t accept defeat. I started experimenting with different supplements, and soon found my brain functioning like it used to! I then made some changes to my diet and lifestyle, and I can say that I now feel better than I have in years.
With a background in holistic healing and fitness, I felt like I had a strong foundation, but many of my old practices went by the wayside after becoming a mom, as I focused all of my time and energy on caring for my son, but not myself.
Luckily, once I got my “brain back”, I rediscovered my love for wellness, and now have the energy and mental resources to follow through. I saw opportunities where I hadn’t before and was able to restructure my lifestyle so that I can function at my peak – which makes me a better mom as well!
Now, I’m excited to share what I’ve learned with moms everywhere so that they can feel great and function at their peak, too 🙂 – Liz
