Episode 29

The Optimal Morning Routine Plus Keto Tips

With Dr. Stephanie Estima

Every day when we wake we are given a new opportunity to be our best selves—to be present for our loved ones, do the work we are meant to be doing, and feel at peace. However, in our day and age, technology is a part of every waking moment. That cell phone alarm that wakes us up can hijack our mornings, starting us off in a panic, and prompting us to seek out what has happened in the news overnight or who needs something from us.

We can choose a different path, if we want, that can set the pace for our productivity for the rest of the day while, at the same time, helping us feel balanced and happy. Dhru’s conversation on The Broken Brain Podcast this week is all about creating habits that contribute to balance with Dr. Stephanie Estima, founder of The Health Loft in Toronto. Dhru and Dr. Stephanie start off by talking about her morning routine—especially as a mom to three boys—and they meander through many important topics such as breakfast ideas, keto diet tips, isolation new moms can feel, and so much more.

I know you’ll love all the amazing information in this episode of The Broken Brain Podcast as much as I did.
