Is it time to make Friends with your Gut?

Why going with your GUT matters!

Like Comment

Getting to know your gut might just make it your best ally. Friending your gut grounds you in a whole new way. And one thing I know for sure, is that it makes those big life decisions a hell of a lot easier!

In Western culture we get a lot of training on leading with our head over our heart, and our gut. And let’s be honest, all too often we blur the rational with the ‘right way’ of doing things.

Why going with your GUT matters.

Well the gut is a super sensory organ which intuits in a much wider way than our brain. The reality is that your head is informed by your gut. 

You’ve probably heard about the vagus nerve and the special thing about this long wandering nerve is that it’s the bi-directional communicator between our gut and our brain.

So the next time you get a strong gut feeling, don’t try and rationalise it. You may just find it’s the very best option to go with your GUT.

Let me know how you get on.
