1: Sleep is the elixir of life
1 in 3 Australians don’t get enough sleep, the way you feel today, starts the night before. 30 minutes before you go to bed tonight, jump off your screens. That will help stimulate the pineal gland in your brain to create enough melatonin to help you get a deep night’s rest.

2.Your Gut Health is deeply connected to your mental health
Serotonin, your happy chemical, starts in your gut. You can create a healthier and happier gut by introducing a wider variety of fruits and vegetables into your diet. Dr Rob Knight recommends trying to eat 30 plants a week.
How to fit 30 plants into your diet in a week from the Mindful High Performer
- Make a veggie juice for breakfast.
- Swap pasta for zoodles (zucchini).
- Add new vegetables to your roasting tray.
- Munch on carrots and hummus.
- Sprinkle organic species to your meal
3. Meditation as a stress management tool
Your amygdala is the area in your brain where stress and anxiety live. Science has shown if you practise meditation for just 10 minutes a day, you can shrink the size of your amygdala. When you turn meditation into a consistent habit, your amygdala gets smaller, helping you become less stressed and less anxious.
