Microbiome

Microbiome

There's this whole world that lives inside of you—the microbiome.

The microbiome is the ecosystem of good bacteria (live organisms) in your gut.

The health of your microbiome can have a significant impact on your overall physical and mental health. When your microbiome is imbalanced, you may experience bloating, digestive issues, and a weakened immune system.

Studies have shown that an unhealthy microbiome can lead to mental health issues such as anxiety and depression.

If you are bloated, you're emotionally down; you’re burping, farting a lot, constipating, or you may feel swollen in your body.

Mind-Gut connection

Mind-Gut connection

Your mood and cravings have a huge connection to your gut. There's a clear mind-gut connection.

Usually, when we feel bloated, we feel sad, anxious, or irritable. So, if you're feeling down, fatigued, or having cravings for some things, that could be your gut bacteria talking to you and saying, "I don't feel good." And they are sending signals to your brain that they need to be healed.

Depression, anxiety, and the feeling of tiredness all the time ⇒ are often related to our gut health.

Our gut bacteria need rest

Our gut bacteria need rest

Just as our brain needs sleep and rest, our gut bacteria also need a break.

So, it's good to give your digestive system some rest and not snack too often between meals.

If you are eating a lot late into the night, you are more likely to get bloated.

Stop eating 2-3 hours before bed. And then go around 12–14 hours without eating (intermittent fasting).

So, it's better to stop eating after 19:00 if I want to go to bed around 22:00.

Eating an early dinner is healthy and helpful for our bodies! It can make us happier and healthier, improve our night's sleep, and make us more energized in the morning.

Your gut bacteria are very happy when you exercise and get sunlight in the morning; it causes them to produce chemicals (short-chain fatty acids) that calm your inflammation and make you happy.

You should get about 30 minutes of movement every day!

For example, go for a 30-minute walk in the morning.
