And suddenly you know! It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings. Because ... you matter. And you're tired of feeling run down, moody, scattered, unmotivated, or bored out of your mind. That's the START of what I was experiencing.
The worst for me was that I was slowly disconnecting from people! I became happier to be at home in leggings and a pony tail throughout the pandemic. My dog had died, we sold our home that I loved, I left a business that brought the loss of friendships, and my husband decided to permantently work from home (no matter how much you love someone, 24 hours a day together requires an adjustment). None of these were things I anticipated and it was wrapped up in silence. I didn't even realize how isolated I had let myself become. Even Mental Wellness Coaches like me go through trying times and can let the world get smaller rather than larger. That's certainly what I was doing. I knew I needed to turn off the zoom and meet people out where we need to be: face-to-face.
I started drinking a glass of "happy" every morning and it changed every thing for me. After two weeks, my husband was asking what I was doing different. I knew that I was feeling more positive, energetic, less moody, falling asleep faster, picking up old projects and knocking them out. When he said, you're more like your old self, I was at first defensive, and then thought, "yes, I am." To the world I was always smiling, but inside I felt as fake as a $3 bill. Stress, commitments, hormonal imbalance, IBS, and denial can do that for a person. I most love that I now anticipate a happy day instead of dreading an emotional or stressful encounter. I've got this!
What I found was Happy Juice. It's a wellness drink that will actually support you in all the ways as you get through your day. It's a combination of three products: Mentabiotics, Edge, and Energy+ to help with:
So, what does it mean to be happy?
Throughout this process, I redefined what happiness meant to me and truly accepted the fact that happiness comes from the inside, but in ways I hadn't expected.
“Happy Juice” provides a unique combination of nutrients for your gut designed to support balance, energy & motivation. Nutrients for your gut that will make your microbiome smile, from the inside out.
The MOTIVATOR in this combo is called Edge. It's a nootropic made with Lychee fruit for mind and body endurance, helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and brown spots. Mango leaf has anti-inflammatory properties, improves mental flow while improving psuchological motivation and exercise recovery. Palm fruit (sustainably sourced) improves BDNF and promotes neuron regeration, produces dopamine and promotes microbiome balance.
The MOTHERSHIP of Happy Juice is Mentabiotics. It contains strain specific probiotics that focus on mental wellness. It activates the gut-brain axis by increasing the product of GABA, Serotonin, and Dopamine. Mentabiotics combines probiotics (good bacteria), probiotics (that act like fertilizers to stimulate the growth of good bacteria), and phytobiotics that protect good bacteria.
Energy+ is like a mental fitness trainer! It's a natural, safe, and effective way to help improve your mental energy and physical performance. It contains Guayusa Life Extract from the Amazon and is considered to be an "awareness enhancer." You won't experience any jitters or crashes while using Energy+. But you can experience improvements to mental flow without megadoses of sugar, caffeine, or vitamins. It's packed with flavanoids, polyphenols, antioxidant, and glycene.
I shared my story but you might be wondering what some of my friends and clients experienced.
"I work 12 hour overnights in the ER and Happy Juice has changed the game for me. I am able to focus and stay awake with no jitters. This is pure brain power in a delicious cup! Very pure feeling and natural. I was so surprised and fell in love on day 1. I've recommended to several healthcare coworkers and they love it as well! Thanks, Lauren (verified review)
"These products have been so helpful for me. I am able to handle the stress in my life with a resilience I have never had before. I love it. -- Tiffany (verified review)
"Each of these drink powders is amazing on its own, but when combined they become a true powerhouse! I love the flavor and the energy and mental clarity I have when I drink them together is unmatched. This is the best combo and I will take the Fundamentals in the morning daily as well!" -- Leah (verified review)
Let's dig in a little to some of the science of what's creating all this happy!.
What does Neurotransmitters Do?
They are chemical messengers your body cannot function without. Their job is so carry signals from one nerve cell to another, muscle, or gland. Examples of neurtransmitters are serotonin, dopamine, and GABA.
What does Serotonin Do?
Serotonin regulates attention, mood, behavior, body temperature, digestion, wound healing, bone health, blood clotting, and sexual behavior. Ninety percent of serotonin is found in the gut.
What does Dopamine Do?
Dopamine is responsible for allowing you to feel pleasure, satisfaction, and motivation.
What does GABA Do?
GABA slows down the brain, improves mood and sleep, and relieves anxiety.
What is a Nootropic?
Nootropics are called "smart drugs." They increase cognitive and executive functioning in the brain. Cognitive functioning control represents your mental abilities such as learning, thinking, reasoning, remembering, problem solving, decision making, and attention. Executive functioning control effects working memory, flexible thinking, and self control. It helps manage emotions and staying organized.
What are Antioxidants?
Molecules that fight free radicals -- that cause harm in the body.
What are Flavanoids?
Flavanoids are rich in antioxidant activity that ward off everyday toxins. They decrease the risk of chronic health conditions.
What are Polyphenols?
Molecules that lower blood sugar thereby reducing risk of Type 2 Diabetes.
What is Glycine?
An amino acid your body needs to creat protein and collagen.
