Tests You Need, Stress Management, Connections: The Top 10 Things I Do To Stay Healthy – Part 3 — #072

by | Oct 26, 2018 | ketoforwomen

How do you manage stress? What types of tests do you need to get done to keep tabs on your health? And why are connections so important? In this episode, I wrap up the ten things that I do to stay healthy. Enjoy!

Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • Numbers 6 through 10 of the ten things that I do to stay healthy
  • Stress management, relief, and self-care
  • The importance of having connections
  • Keeping tabs on yourself
  • The tests that you need to get done
  • Getting outside help to maintain your health
  • The mental state of always being happy and always seeking for that happiness 

Key Takeaways:

  • Taking a bath is a really great self-care tool while, at the same time, it puts you in this awesome state of parasympathetic mode, so you’re basically killing two birds with one stone.
  • There is something that goes on deep in our bodies when we have connections with people and when we foster them.
  • Continuing your connections, making new connections, and putting some really good, solid, quality time and effort into those connections are what will keep you ‘humming’. They will raise your vibration if it’s at a low point or it will continue a high vibration if you already are at a higher point.
  • Having a strong connection with your partner is a huge piece to getting healthy and staying healthy.
  • If you don’t feel 100% healthy or 100% great, it’s worth it to find out why by working with a practitioner.

Action Steps:

  • Build a sense of awareness around your stress levels and start noticing how often you are in the sympathetic versus the parasympathetic mode.
  • Have tools in place to manage your stress.
  • When you’re doing stress management and you’re using the tools that work for you, have that also be a time of self-care.
  • Make sure to spend quality time with your family and with your partner.
  • Build a team around you that will help you to stay healthy, that knows your body, knows what you’ve been working on and that you can trust.
  • Make the conscious choice and effort to be as happy as you can as much of the day as you can.



I just created a new class called the Better Blood Sugar Project, and it’s something really simple and fun! So if you have already been through the Fat Burning Female Project, go get a spot in the Better Blood Sugar Project. And if you haven’t gone through that yet, then this is definitely something to keep in mind when the next Fat Burning Female Project opens in January.

As always, if you have any questions, be on the lookout for the Keto Hot Seat call for questions on Facebook and Instagram. Make sure your questions are short, general, and that you haven’t heard the answer to them before.

Take care!

“You have full control over your health, and you are fully capable of finding out what’s going on and doing what you need to do to see if you can improve your health.”

“If you’re sick and you are just grumpy and moany and whiney about being sick, you’re going to stay sick for a lot longer. Whereas if you’re sick and you do what you need to do… you’re going to get better a lot quicker.”

Hey there, I'm Shawn!

I’m obsessed with nitro cold brew, 90% dark chocolate, and helping coaches and practitioners build a business they love. With nothing but a passion for helping others and the desire to never have a boss again, I quit the corporate world and built my own million dollar coaching business over the past decade. Now, I help others do the same.
