34: Working with Your Body's Natural Rhythms

You see posts on social media and you feel like everyone else has figured out this adulting thing and they’re sticking to a schedule, a routine, like a boss; and you’re a big hot mess with no structure, no schedule. Or maybe you are sticking to a schedule, but you’re exhausted and having to rely on caffeine or worse to get you through the slumps in your day. Can you relate?

Most of us have felt this way and have assumed that the problem is us -- we’re just not disciplined enough . But in this episode of the Optimized Life podcast, we’re going to challenge that assumption.

You see, the problem is not your ability to stick to a schedule or a routine, but rather, your ability to identify your body’s natural rhythms and develop a routine that optimizes those rhythms. And we can help.

In this episode, we’re going to tell you about our own experiences tuning into our bodys’ rhythms and the huge changes, which we previously thought were impossible, that we’ve experienced as a result.

We’re going deep with this topic and giving you the tools that you need to identify your own rhythms so you can work with them (instead of against them!) for optimal productivity.



Listen in as we talk about:

03:56 The external sources that have overridden our bodies’ natural states and rhythms

20:09 The significance of the circadian rhythm

23:46 The dangers of overriding our natural rhythms

25:02 The four phases of the menstrual cycle, which may be impacting your daily life in ways you don’t realize.

32:29 Chronotypes and how working with your chronotype can optimize your schedule or routine
