In life, mindset is half the battle — especially when parenting! This episode is all about specific ways we can improve mindset in our homes and set our kids up for success in life. Elliot Roe is a world-renowned performance coach who works with Olympian athletes, Hollywood actors, Wall Street traders, entrepreneurs, and leaders in almost every industry. He hosts the podcast “The A-Game Advantage” and also created an app called Primed Mind that helps people in highly demanding industries unlock their full potential and perform on-demand.
As a dad, Elliot understands the complicated dynamics of parenting and the great potential that comes with that responsibility. I’ve found his techniques really helpful in overcoming my own mental roadblocks, which I can trace back to childhood and adolescence. By learning how to pass on a resilient mindset to our kids, we can interrupt the cycle and avoid giving our kids some of these roadblocks in the first place!

This podcast is sponsored by Four Sigmatic. They are one of my favorite companies. I’ve been talking about them for years and they are well-known for their incredible and delicious mushroom drinks and products of all kinds. I have personally been starting my day with their coffee with Lion’s Mane in some form for years. I really like their ground mushroom coffee with Lion’s Mane because it works just like any other coffee, whether in a coffee maker or I use Chemex or a Ratio. And it has an added benefit. So, obviously coffee is one of the most consumed beverages in the world. Theirs is unique because it adds Lion’s Mane. So you still get to keep the benefits of coffee but the addition of Lion’s Mane really supports productivity and focus in a really unique way, and I find really helps cut the jitters. Lion’s Mane is one of my favorite mushrooms, and I love that their coffee contains it. They have both the ground coffee and instant packets, which are great for on the go and then I always keep in my purse, especially when I’m traveling. Their coffee with Lion’s Mane also includes a mushroom called Chaga. And you might have heard me talk about this on my interview with Tero, who’s the founder of Four Sigmatic on this podcast. But Chaga is known as the King of Mushrooms. And it’s one of my favorites because it is a really functional mushroom full of antioxidants and beneficial compounds that support the body in various ways, including by supporting the immune system. They have many other products as well, including single Elixir blends of mushrooms like Cordyceps, Chaga, Reishi, and Lion’s Mane, as well as several other coffee products, including one with Lion’s Mane, one with Cordyceps. I really loved all of their products that I’ve tried and my kids love their Reishi Cacao at night, and I love that it helps them sleep. A common question I get, does this coffee taste like mushrooms? Or people say, “I don’t like mushrooms. Will I like this coffee?” And I can tell you their coffee, especially the Lion’s Mane coffee tastes exactly like regular coffee, does not at all taste like mushrooms. You just get the benefits of the mushrooms without the taste. I have found that mushroom coffee is also very gentle on the gut. So it doesn’t leave the jitters or that crash like some coffees do and the Lion’s Mane seems to really enhance the natural effect of the caffeine. All Four Sigmatic products are organic, vegan, and gluten-free. And every batch is tested by a third-party lab to ensure that they don’t contain any heavy metals, allergens, negative bacteria, yeast, mold, mycotoxins, pesticides, etc. So you’re getting the highest quality product available. They are all backed by their 100% money-back guarantee. So you can try these with complete peace of mind. I love this company so much that I’ve worked at an exclusive offer just for “Wellness Mama Podcast” listeners. You can receive 10% off of your whole order on any Four Sigmatic products including their mushroom coffee or their Reishi, which is part of my nighttime routine.

This episode is brought to you by Alitura. You’ve probably heard me talk about that. This is a skincare company I love, and it’s founded by a dear friend of mine, Andy, who created these incredible products when he was in a horrible accident that left him with scars on his face. And this sent him into an incredible research phase to figure out ways that he could hopefully heal those scars and not have them with him for life. And he’s developed some incredible products that have allowed him to do just that. One of my favorites is their face mask. And if you’ve seen me on Instagram with clay all over my face and hair, this is likely the one that I’m using. It’s a simple mask that does incredible things for the skin and contains dozens of really, really beneficial ingredients. I notice a big difference in my skin tone when I use it regularly. They also have something called the Gold Serum, which I find especially nourishing for my skin without being too oily. And I love to use that, especially before we go outside or if I’m gonna be in front of the red light. I just find it’s really, really beneficial for my skin. I love all of their products because they use completely natural ingredients, and not just natural but incredibly beneficial ingredients. Andy goes above and beyond to make sure that everything that is contained in these formulas are so beneficial for the skin. And his skin is certainly a testament to how well they work. And I’ve gotten incredible feedback from many of you who have tried these products and loved them as well. They’re much less expensive than spa variations of skincare products and I found that the quality is so, so much better. And I don’t worry at all because I know they’re so natural. I would love for you to check out their products and find out all about the different formulas they have by going to alituranaturals.com/wellnessmama. And they’ve generously offered a discount of 20% with the code WELLNESSMAMA, all capital, all one word.
