#171 : Your body is your business
with Ollie Matthews 


Episode at a Glance

My guest today is Ollie Matthews who knows from experience that the missing link for many of us is our health. Many coaches unconsciously compromise their self care and healthy habits because we’re so busy working on our businesses. If this resonates with you, then this episode is for you.

But Ollie believes that your body IS your business and he’s on a mission to help business owners manage their hormones, get better rest and take better care of their bodies so they can feel free in their business and in their lives.

So, we have a very important conversation today to help you (and selfishly… help me) connect the dots between your body and your business.

So, pour yourself a big glass of water with a pinch of pink salt and take an energizing walk as you listen along to this inspiring episode.

1. Discover the crucial role health plays in achieving long-lasting business success.
2. Uncover the surprising ways stress affects the body, especially in women.

Key Points We Cover:

The Importance of Basic Foundations
As Ollie says, your body IS your business. So, a strong foundation in health is essential for coaches seeking sustainable business success. This can be achieved by focusing on the basics, such as staying hydrated, ensuring enough protein intake, and maintaining consistent sleep and exercise routines.

In the podcast, Ollie stresses the power of consistency and the importance of starting with basic health habits upon which coaches can build their businesses without risking burnout or injury. He shares the analogy of climbing Mount Everest, explaining that health should be approached much like setting up base camp. He believes that sticking to the essentials – hydration, protein intake, and sleep – can yield greater results in overall health than extreme practices like nootropics and fad diets.

Understanding Toxins and Detoxification
The world is full of toxins that can impact our health, even in rural areas where one might feel removed from pollution because pesticides and chemicals can still be present in the air due to farming. Identifying ways to introduce more antioxidants and improve air quality can go a long way in promoting overall health.

During the podcast, Ollie emphasizes the importance of bolstering detoxification systems by seeking ways to reduce exposure to toxins and increase the body’s natural defense mechanisms, you can potentially improve your overall health and vitality.

Prioritizing Sleep
Healthy sleep habits play a crucial role in achieving long-term success. Proper sleep helps the body and mind rejuvenate and prepare for the demands of work and personal life. Inadequate sleep can lead to various issues, including poor decision-making and reduced productivity.

During this podcast, Ollie offers advice for improving sleep habits, such as his three-two-one rule: no meals three hours before bed, no screens or work two hours before bed, and no technology one hour before bed. He encourages coaches to invest in their sleep and view it as a vital component of overall health and well-being.
