I just wrapped a 75 day mental toughness challenge and I’m sharing with you what motivated me to complete one of the most intense challenges on the internet— 75 Hard, TWICE.

For 75 days I worked out 2x a day for 45 minutes each, (one of which was outdoors regardless of weather), drank 1 gallon of water, read at least 10 pages from a non fiction book, took a daily progress photo, ate super clean (with no cheats, no dairy and no alcohol)…

All while having my highest podcast download month, signed my largest 1:1 client contract, spoke on my first live stage of the year, and had the biggest ever launch for my program.

This is part 1 of 3 from a series all about health and showing up at your best for your business. Check out episode 143 Unlock More Creativity, Productivity & Magnetism by Working WITH Your Cycle with Renae Fieck.

What if I told you that you could amplify your results, creativity and magnetism by making one simple change?

What is it? It’s your sleep.

Think about it.  When was the last time you woke up feeling rested?

Like really well rested.

Not ‘slam the snooze, feel like you got hit by a freight train (aka your toddler’s midnight kick boxing) start the day guzzling coffee’ morning.

The kind where you wake up and feel clear, energized… good.
