Purpose

HOW TO HACK JET LAG // KILL IT DEAD

For someone who travels as much as I do, jet lag is simply not an option. Not so much from a ‘too busy for jet lag’ point of view more so from a, well, okay – too fucking much I WANT to do, plus I hate feeling like shit!

So I want to share with you my travel / jet lag / also works like gangbusters for hangovers cure… not that I get up to too many of those these days!! But I’ve been using this cure for DECADES. Okay at least 1.5 decades. Warning:::::: it is quite brutal!

But better a few hours of brutality than a few days, yeah?

Here’s how it went down today:

* 7am landed at LAX after 32 hours (read it and weep for me) of travel. Bali – Brisbane, 6 hours stop, Brisbane LA. Had about 3.5 hours combined sleep in that time.

* {{pre-jet-lag-prep}} > Did an 18-minute body weight workout in the shower cubicle at Brisbane airport. 7 sets, reps 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 of squats, alternate lunges, push ups, single leg dead lifts. This stopped me getting on the 12.5 hour flight already feeling like complete death after the 12 hours before it. I DID feel like death before the workout. Felt good after.

* On the plane: follow instructions like a good little girl or boy. Get up and move! I took advantage when most people were sleeping to do a full body stretch workout in my seat. Yep I am that weird person with my leg sticking straight up in the air pressed to my face. Hey, I felt good and everybody else looked like they felt shit.

Also: avoid the carbs. For the love of God. My saviour? I take CRAPLOADS of BCAA powder with me (everywhere anyway) … on a plane this is what keeps me going with ‘something to satisfy’ so I don’t eat all the chips / chocolate /etc. Ate only meat, salad (which I brought myself), nuts and dark organic chocolate. Eat crap feel like crap, pretty simple and not just a travel hack.

* On arrival … the breakdown:

Got to my LA hotel 8.30am, fortunately they checked me in which was nice … what I FELT like doing was going straight to bed (body was on 11.30pm Bali time) … I know from previous experience that had I have gone to bed then I would have woken up feeling that awful woozy jet lag feeling, upon which I would have laid in bed watching crap TV and eating all the chocolate. And all the mini bar. And then probably made my way out and bought some kind of crappy high fat high sugar lunch to cure my pain. Standard … and exactly what does NOT fix jet lag.

Instead (and trust me I did not do this willingly, I dragged my butt out kicking and screaming for my own higher good) –

* NO FOOD ALL DAY. Had been eating every 3 hours for 32 hours anyway while flying; more than enough food had gone down the hatch plus I wanted to SPEED up my digestion and metabolism to push the effects of jet lag out stat. So instead I mainlined BCAAs all day long (about 10-20 gram an hour with water) like they were going out of fashion. This also ensured MASSIVE WATER CONSUMPTION which was essential as my body blows up like a Teletubby after flying long distances. I remember learning you actually gain as much as 1% body fat temporarily for every hur flying. Wtf!! Certainly seems true judging by appearance though. Which sucks balls. BUT you can turn it around, hence (in part) all this.

Basically a forced intensive cleanse / detox.

* STARBUCKS. No this does not meet the cleanse formula. But, America. Starbucks, Coffee. I’m only human okay?! Had 2 triple espresso cinnamon loaded macchiato’s, and:

* FORCED MY SORRY ASS TO WRITE SOMETHING. Writing is my cure all for my body mind AND soul. It’s not just also awesome that the more I write the more money I make. When I feel like shit, writing clears my mind and lifts my energy. So you would do here whatever does that for you. I wrote a blog. Felt uplifted. Better than sitting in bed eating crap!!

* THE REALLY TOUGH BIT: Went to Bikram yoga. I wanted to cry the whole way through … I GUESS in a good way. This in particular is what I’ve used as a hangover cure for years back in my party days. That plus the fasting day plus the water overload etc. Also Bikram brings on the water overload which is cool. Anyway … keep in mind it is 90-minutes of torture (although i do LOVE it; I do like it rough!) at the best of times, but after 32 hours travel, VERY minimal sleep, body felt ruined, AND I was so bloated and fluid-y from the flying that my ankles were literally the same fucking size as my thighs! The whole cab ride there I wanted to tell him to turn around. Bikram post long-haul flight is the WORST. But also, the best.

PS yes that pic is me … not today mind you.

I am a long-time Bikram lover!

I walked out of that room CLEANSED baby. Smashed a couple big Fiji’s. Stood with my head on the shower wall {{{COLD SHOWER}}} for 5-10 minutes and just felt my body INHALE the water through my pores.

I literally walked into the studio head spinning not knowing which was was up and walked out feeling like fucking Angelina Jolie in a cat suit.

upon which:

* MEGA GREENS AND REAL FOOD OVERLOAD

Went to Wholefoods. Bought ALL the salad stuff and some grilled chicken. Plus inanely high quality cinnamon-y chocolate and organic wine. Because … wine. Not part of the detox? Nah … stuff it, emotional detox!

Walked back to hotel … probably did about an hour walking in all this, in the sun, which helped. Next (did not eat yet, still BCAAing aka flushing all the crap / jet lag out)

* SAT BY POOL

SUN really helps if you can get it. I did 2 hours of coaching calls by the pool, with my clients. After that I ate half my chicken and salad (at around 4pm, so did the fasting for 12 hours) and then may or may not have shown my not so super-human jet-lag beating side by passing out rather unceremoniously face-down and I’m PRETTY sure snoring, for about 45 minutes with a really hot guy next to me.

Whoops. Felt great after that though

* SHARK TANK … okay this isn’t an official jet lag beating must. But it’s the US of A and they have Shark Tank plus I NEVER sit and watch TV so the ‘cure jet lag’ element of it is that once you’ve sweat (by the way I sweated out ALL that from-flying fluid, which usually would take 4-5 days, in that class!), cleansed, moved, etc you deserve a little rest. So I watched Shark Tank, fell asleep again for about half an hour then had a very energising call with my mentor.

* MASSAGE. Had an 8pm 75-minute massage in the hotel spa, preceded by champagne and involving hot wax on my feet. Which was different but ah-may-zing. Also cost more than about 3 months of Bali massages but how often are you in LA by yourself? PLUS I consider it money well spent to feel human again!

Which brings us to now … it’s 10.30pm, just ate rest of my salad and chicken for dinner … am dressed up feeling pretty in the hotel bar doing my work (writing this!) and enjoying a beautiful glass of Syrah … and honestly I feel on fucking fire right now. It was really tough to push myself to not only stay awake through the day but to NOT give in to stuffing my face with junk for short-term energy and there is no way in HELL I felt like any form of exercise let alone the mega sweat factory. But … it works! And there is a certain joy that comes with the pain of pushing yourself to do stuff you know is awesome for you. And the best bit? I bought some kind of paleo-y- almond butter homemade chocolate sugar-free pie thing which is waiting for me upstairs.

Would love to hear your travel / jet lag hacks! I know I had a bit of fun writing this, but honestly, I can’t afford (for enjoyment never mind biz!) being wiped for half a week with how much I travel; this week I’m flying again in 2 days, then 3 days after that, then 2 days after that from LA to London, then 5 days after that back to Aus and Bali … so if it was the ‘old Kat’ I would be a sugar-loading weight-gaining binge-drinking over-sleeping grumpy ass mess that whole time!

There’s a bunch of stuff I didn’t include (cold drip coffee, couple of sneaky panadol comes to mind) but the key is to keep moving all day, do some seriously ACTIVE (ideally heavy duty sweat) workout (if I can’t do Bikram for location reason it’d be a serious circuit), flush flush flush, have a LITTLE rest, and when you do eat (and trust me the no eating and flushing feels way better for the day) eat MEGA good food. I ate about 3 huge plates worth of salad (real salad not just lettuce) today – more flushing. But then also HAVING the treat / feel good stuff but making it quality and after doing what you need to do first to sort your bod out.

I hope you find this helpful next time you have a long haul flight you don’t want to let get to you. Oh and today was way easier for me to do what I wanted as I’m traveling alone, but even with the kids I do all of the above except maybe the massage; I’d substitute that for extra stretching in the room. So worth it to be able to re-set your body and get in sync to enjoy your travels! I’m off to watch some Netflix, drink more Syrah, and eat my late night treat! Ready to DOMINATE LA TOMORROW!!

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play!

MONETIZE THAT SHIT NO MATTER WHAT

{AND DO WHAT YOU WANT ALL DAY}

A One-Time Live Online Workshop with Katrina Ruth, on How to Make Money Anywhere, Anytime, With ZERO Dependance on Any One Platform, Program or Tool … Aka JUST BECAUSE THAT’S WHO YOU ARE … AND – With the Greatest of Ease

Okay. Imma gonna get straight up on your ass about what needs to be said here, because obviously SOMEBODY needs to hit the damn truth button on this shit!!

Straight up from the gate up, you do NOT make money because of Facebook.

Because of Instagram.

Because of email.

Because of ANY of this shit.

You make money because of who you are and what you decide and make NON-NEGOTIABLE, period, The End!

As you may be aware, in the last day or so Facebook and Instagram went down down down OH so far down.

After a few obligatory ‘stop the world!’ messages to my team and friends (which resulted in a serious convo with one of my soul sisters as to whether we’d now have to become porn stars instead), I got back to business.

The business of posting and selling shit on Facebook, which is admittedly a big part of what I do each day???

Nah … the business of being ME, because THAT is what I actually do each day, and also?

It’s what gets me paid.

Funnily enough, as is often the way with these things, just yesterday somebody was making smart-ass comments to me about how all the coaches would survive if there was no Facebook or Instagram.

“How would they survive?”, I asked myself.

“Well, I have no idea how THEY would survive but I sure as shit know how I would survive:

Very fucking well indeed, thank you very much, because that is who I AM”

Word to the wise:

A) I was making serious money long before I used Facebook for it.

Allow me to say it again for those in the back: YOU MAKE MONEY BECAUSE OF WHO YOU ARE AND THE LEVEL YOU VIBRATE AT.

Vibrate?

It’s an energy thang baby, a frequency shiz niz, it’s just who you ARE and how life works for you.

Handy hint —> the level of wealth you enjoy or moan over now is already just a direct reflection of your frequency, and expectations. It ain’t got jack shit to do with what you do, and it certainly is not a product of which tools are available to you.

It is a product of YOU.

When the socials went down today it was FASCINATING to me to observe the response that came through in the in-between-y bits when people managed to post something.

People worrying about how it would impact their business, or feeling in some way handcuffed.

This is crazy! It’s fear-mongering at its worst and it’s an absolute SHITTY mentality as far as belief systems around where results come from.

Do you know what I felt, when I realised we couldn’t use Facebook as normal for our biz stuff?

EXCITEMENT.

It took a minute to click in, but I found myself getting all wriggly and lit up with excitement.

I love a damn challenge 🙂

And since I also choose to believe that everything is happening FOR me, I also took personal responsibility for this occurrence.

Obviously FB and Insta had gone down in order to force me to finally pull my finger out and learn how to go live on YouTube.

But mainly – hell YEAH to the opportunity to get creative!

Probably taking the whole thing a little bit too far, as I worked my way through some sprints on the rower post HIIT weights session, I started to imagine what would happen if Facebook was TRULY GONE AND NO LONGER OF THIS WORLD.

I got MORE excited with each second that passed (which makes me remember how damn BORED I get as soon as I know how to easily do something aka make money all day err day on Facebook), and I also found myself AUTOMATICALLY GOING INTO ZAG MODE.

Zag?

You know, like ‘When They Zig you Zag’. A classic, if ever there was one!! Thank you Dad, for always having all the BEST books on your bookshelf for me to start reading from 10 or 11 years of age!

See, I have a belief system which works rather well for me and I guess is just part of who I am –

I believe that things ALWAYS work out perfectly for me, and are always done FOR me …

I believe I am always on path …

I believe I always make the right decision, so therefore I never have to beat myself up, I just wait for the lesson –

AND

(drumroll)

I believe that my outcomes are predicated only by my choices, and that there is nothing I EVER need in order to get or maintain or ONLY improve on an existing outcome.

It’s this mindset that causes me to wonder what TF it has to do with anything when people say things like they can’t be in shape ’cause they have kids or just had a kids … or ’cause they can’t get to the gym (for example)

And it’s also this mindset that causes me to KNOW that the money I make and the impact my soul work has in the world has NOTHING to do with what tools or platforms are available to me or working.

I programmed myself a long time ago to IMMEDIATELY swerve if something was no longer serving me or working for me. It’s this part of my mind which therefore right away started coming up with creative and imaginative solutions for how business would OF COURSE carry on (and improve!) with or without social media.

And it’s also this part of my mind which of course right away finds a way to monetize the damn thing and turn it into epic and highly helpful content for you, aka this workshop!

It’s just how I think, and who I am. I am simply unavailable for NOT moving forward, and nothing will ever ever EVER make me believe that I have to depend on anything outside of me for my results.

So why a whole damn workshop on the concept?

Well, it’s more than that, isn’t it?

It’s a mindset of believing that you always get what you want.

It’s a mindset of believing that everything always works out for you.

It’s a mindset of believing that NOTHING can stop you.

That everything is working in your favour.

And?

That you can monetize ANYTHING, any time you choose, and with no ‘requirements’ in order to do so!

I don’t have to tell you that obvs the outcomes you get directly follow and reflect your mindset and your beliefs!!

Here is what else, as well:

This is not just about making money any time, from any thing, and knowing that even with challenge or things going wrong you only THRIVE and EXPAND!!

For me this goes hand in hand with duh – I get to do all of that on my terms.

By having FUN, and being in FLOW, and with ease.

In fact, the more money the more ease!! #justhowitis

That I can literally click my fingers and money shows up for me, meanwhile I’m just over here doing ma thang.

Speaking of which –

I think it’s about time I shared exactly what I currently DO all day, yeah? And how I do it / fit it all in / honour ALL the areas, PLUS manage to spend so much time sitting on my ass doing sweet FA!

In other words … !

Let’s hang out together this weekend!!

Introducing:

What We Will Be Covering!

1) How to Monetize ANY Situation, Including But Not Limited To:

* When social media or any typically depended upon platform goes down (including examples of how I have down this several times, to the tune of tens of thousands)

* Hater situations (including examples, again multiple times, again tens of thousands of dollars)

* When you make a fool of yourself / something embarrassing happens or you screw up (also examples! also lots and lots of lovely moolah)

* When people ‘screw you over’ (ahem, we will talk about this) or desert you (also examples! more money!)

* Basically how to turn any and all life situations, moods, changes of the moon, emotional ups and downs, real life SHIT, to money!

2) Why the ‘When Shit Happens’ times are often the BEST times to make money, aka this is where I teach you what it really means to understand human psychology in terms of SALES, and the mindset of being an actual IN THE FLOW entrepreneur, who ALWAYS sees opportunity and jumps straight on it

3) When NOT to Monetize (okay that one you can have for free – never!!)

4) Understanding Where Money Really Comes From – and aligning yourself TO the frequency of wealth, such that you can literally NOT.BE.IMPACTED by anything that 99.99% of people think will cost them business

5) Money Vibration Principles Revealed (… my own personal philosophies and things that I live by / instil into my being around this, including my own daily practices)

6) Coding For Success

* How to ALWAYS have an endless stream of ideas

* AUTOMATIC continual unleashment of creativity and imagination, especially in so-called times of struggle

* Seeing past problems and accessing higher self in order to always know the answer, and how to move forward

7) Programming to Upgrade – the beliefs, energetic states and emotional patterns you require in order to be this person, have all this work for you, ALWAYS see and have the ability to act on the shit that will most pay off

The ‘Do What You Want All Day’ Bit:

* Exactly how my typical day flows and how I operate for maximum efficiency of time, energy, mental acuity, soul connectedness, etc

* Getting it all done as a busy entrepreneur (and single Mum, in my case) who also refuses to operate at anything less than EXCELLENT in terms of self-care, fitness, fun, playtime, etc

* Exactly what I do all day, broken down to the detail, to helm this becoming-8-figure-empire

* Exactly what I do NOT do all day, either it just gets ignored (hint: a LOT that most online marketers think matters!), or I let other people do it for me

* Calling in soulmate support, even long before you are ready to afford it

* Optimizing energy, focus, personal power, happiness, general flow. Aka mindset and also brain / nutrition hacks and so on

* TIME MANIFESTATION. OH YES IT IS A THING.

AND, while we’re at it, we will also be talking INSTANT MANIFESTATION. The exact process I use to bring the future into the NOW, by clearing all blocks existing between its reality in the quantum and its physical manifestation in the now!!

I’ll be doing this ‘Rapid-Fire’ Session at the end!!

2) Bringing the ‘in private / behind the scenes’ version of you to the public

4) Audience quality vs quality, and active elimination of those who don’t ‘HELL yes’ on your content

5) People don’t buy your products, they buy you. No – people don’t buy you, they buy your energy!! What that means and how to let it out

6) Being real about where you need to take care of YOU in order to be able to show up and shine fully

7) Keeping a laser-focus and tunnel-vision on your own path, and having the courage to pave the way that feels right for you even if it’s not been done before

8) Discernment to walk the line between being polarising and positively outrageous as opposed to just a hot mess 🙂 Scaling and magnetizing FROM the chaos of creativity and following the true artists way!

9) Knowing which ideas to work, what will sell, and how best to sell it so that the entire launch and selling experience is fun AND rewarding for both your audience and you

10) Creating hell yes offers that make them scream yes!
