Super Foods, Health, Dr. Axe And The Morning Mindset

Written By: Rex Solano - Aug• 15•15

I have a fond admiration for Dr.Axe.

Not only does he recommend incredible health tips, but he also is a tremendous marketer who knows how to keep you on the hook! If you’ve watched one of his videos, he has the innate ability to help you become completely empowered with your food choices and equips you with tidbits of knowledge that makes you feel good about yourself.

So who is Dr.Axe? Dr. Axe is a Certified Nutrition Specialist, expert in Natural Medicine, a speaker for Fortune 500 Companies (Nissan, Whole Foods) and a doctor of chiropractic medicine (or so his website tells me).
Recently, I’ve become a customer of his (I purchased a bag of collagen that he claims fixes leaky gut) and the way he has me digesting health information has me going off the charts! Therefore, I’d like to share information that he provides for free at
Dr.Axe talks about key important areas of health that although can come across as gimmicky, makes you feel good. The key target areas he covers are:
1) Weight Loss – 34% of Americans are obese and 32% are overweight.
2) Detox
3) Anti-Aging
4) Muscle Building

And now….. How to achieve the greatest morning mindset for the rest of your life!

Mornings can be a real drag. The sound of your alarm clock and the longing for 5 more minutes is a common greeting for most mornings. Especially on a weekday.
In the pursuit of improving the quality of life, I found a few little tricks to make sure your Monday (or any day) morning blues don’t get the best of you. Here are 6 creative ways to wake up happy and enjoy your mornings just a little bit more.
1) Perk Up. A lot of people start their morning with a cup coffee to get jump started but it might be best to start with an enjoyable activity instead. Stimulate your brain in other ways besides the reliance of caffeine. I talk about this in “A Smarter Way to Start Your Morning.”
2) Wake up to music. As an alternative to waking up to the buzzing of an alarm clock, switch it up with music that gets you moving. Often times, when I wake up to music it may not be enough to jolt me fully awake. I fall asleep and then I’m late.
If you have this problem, stick to your alarm clock and after you’ve fully awaken. Jazz is up a bit with entertaining fast-paced music to get going. I always listen to a nice victory song such as We Are the Champions by Queen or Eye of the Tiger by Survivor.
3) Wake up to do. If you have direction for your day, it may motivate you more than just waking up aimlessly. The night before, what I like to do is put together a to-do list. As soon as I wake up, I look at the list and imagine how it will feel after I complete the list. Once I finish everything the day looks much brighter and I feel much more accomplished right from the start.
4) Wake up to work out. I am not much of a “morning workout person” however I noticed that when I do a 2-mile run in the morning, I am much more energetic and alert using the adrenaline of exercise. It is a great replacement for coffee but you just can’t help but feel good after doing a high energy work out.
5) Wake up to FUN! When do people have the most fun? At night of course! We watch movies at night, we eat good food during dinner, and we hang out with our friends at night too! Why don’t we do this in the morning? Because it’s a real drag. Let’s change it up. Hang out with friends in the morning. Scheduled something fun to do! Mornings can be fun if you let them. 🙂
6) Wake to Hulu. Hulu usually comes out with new shows the night after they air. When I wake up, it helps to catch an episode of Once Upon A Time or Nashville to get your brain all dramatic! I am always extremely motivated to wake up 30 minutes to a 1-hour early to catch my favorite shows. It helps set the tone for my day and believe or not, I’m super happy after catching up on some drama.
Americans have been fighting the morning drag-yourself-out-of-bed blues since the turn of the century. Don’t let it bring you down. Wake up happy and life will reward you throughout the day!

Take charge of your life now! Get healthy! Live to the fullest! Be the best you can!
