Try Co-Working Spaces
Feeling stuck in your home office? Maybe it’s time to shake things up by trying a co-working space. Being surrounded by others can boost your productivity and provide an opportunity for networking.
On top of that, co-working spaces naturally foster collaboration, creativity, and a unique energy that’s hard to find at home.
(Plus we all have days where we just need an excuse to get out of our pajamas…)
Here are a few tips for making the most of co-working spaces. Have you tried co-working?
Will Bulsiewicz, M.D., Gastroenterologist & Author
What does the morning routine of a gut-health expert look like? Let’s find out from Will Bulsiewicz, M.D. He:
- Drinks coffee with added spices (nutmeg or a trio of ginger, turmeric, and cinnamon). “There is a benefit to drinking coffee in terms of our gut health.”
- Goes for a walk with his daughter, absorbing the morning sunlight to regulate his circadian rhythm. “The days where I do this, I get much more restful sleep.”
- Wears a 20-pound weighted vest for his walk. “It gets my heart rate up and makes me sweat a little bit.”
Why it works:
- Though Bulsiewicz agrees coffee isn’t for everyone, he says there’s “clear evidence” that it’s beneficial to our gut microbes, while the spices include phytochemicals that can also help the microbiome.
- Morning sunlight regulates our bodies, leading to more restful sleep.
- Sweating it out is great – and adds to the list of benefits that it’s good for our microbes as well!
Bulsiewicz says there’s no one secret to improving your gut health – it’s all about consistency and good habits. It’s worth checking out his Instagram for tips on gut health and which foods to eat and avoid – find him here.
