About the Episode:

A lot of people struggle with stress, not getting enough sleep, weight loss, and so many other things. And when people struggle with these things, it effects their productivity.

I had the great joy of interviewing Veronique Cardon and learning what practices will help us take care of our brains and be more productive.

We, as entrepreneurs, live hectic lives, so it’s important we be as productive as possible. But if our brain isn’t taken care of properly, our productivity will decrease. Here’s what Veronique says we should do to have a healthy brain.


Proper nutrition is essential to a healthy brain, and a healthy brain is a happy brain. Without proper nutrition, your brain can’t function at peak performance. In fact, of the most important nutrients you can give your brain is magnesium. So instead of pasta for lunch, how about a salad?


We all know exercise keeps our bodies healthy, but did you know it also helps keep your brain healthy? One benefit of exercise for the brain is the release of endorphins. Endorphins not only make you feel good but also help your brain function better.


Another factor in keeping your brain happy and being more productive is getting enough sleep. Sleep isn’t a waste of time. It’s a free way to relax your mind and recharge your body.

Without enough sleep, your brain won’t function at peak performance, which means you won’t reach maximum efficiency in your work.

Trouble sleeping? Exercise during the day. Exercising helps you spend enough energy during the day so you can sleep at night. Also, limit your screen time at night. The light from your phone can reduce melatonin levels, so instead of scrolling through your social feed while lying in bed, read a book or practice meditation.

As an entrepreneur, you have a lot of stress, and you need to function at maximum efficiency. The first step in achieving maximum efficiency is taking care of your brain.
