Show Notes

“As entrepreneurs, we are constantly pushing our own limiting beliefs, we’re constantly pushing ourselves to be visible… this can lead to a lot of stress, not just in our cognitive mind, but into our subconcious mind and into our body and into our nervous system.”

—  Elisabeth Kristof

As entrepreneurs, we often deal with higher levels of stress, so having our brains work FOR us and not AGAINST us is crucial! Your brain’s job is to ensure your survival, but when it feels that you’re unsafe or stressed, it can make the problem worse by triggering headaches, insomnia, or unhealthy cravings — not exactly helpful! Often, our brains even try to “protect” us through leading us to self-sabotage.

My guest Elisabeth Kristof is a certified applied neurology practitioner who works with entrepreneurs, creatives, and leaders to improve resilience, manage stress, and regulate emotions through intentional, science-based, brain training.

“Our nervous system is our operating system, and when we learn to work with it, we can change all of our life experiences, we can change our behaviours,” Elisabeth explains. “Pain, dizziness, nausea, migraine, fatigue, binge-eating, insomnia — these are all nervous system outputs and, by training our nervous system, we can create real change in those outputs.”

By training your brain to better deal with stress and stimuli, you train it to become a more valuable member of your team as you grow your business!

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • Why it’s important for entrepreneurs to learn how to train their nervous systems 
  • How to combat your brain’s attempts to trick you into self-sabotaging and develop healthy new tools for emotional regulation
  • Tips for dealing with stress or anxiety related to your finances
