When growing in self-awareness, it’s important to be able to recognize, or identify, what your triggers are. If you’re a regular listener, you’ve heard me talk about how critical meditation and journaling are to strengthen your ability to respond to life rather than react. But, how we treat our bodies is also important.

When I notice I feel anxious, envious, or irritable, I like to pause and notice how I’m feeling physically. I ask myself, “how did I sleep last night?”, “do I need to go for a walk?” or “what have I eaten today?” At times, simply drinking some water or having a good, healthy meal helps me process what I’m truly feeling.

How you eat not only fuels your body but also fuels your mind. It allows you to pause and reflect, and make intentional decisions.

In today’s episode, health and science journalist, Max Lugavere joins me for a conversation about the connection between food and cognitive health. Tune into this interesting discussion on how to feed your brain to live a more full life…no matter your Enneagram type.
