Relax And Lose Stomach Fat. Plus! Win A Year’s Yoga Membership!

If you follow this blog regularly, or keep up to date on your nutrition and fat loss knowledge, you’ll have heard about a nasty little hormone called cortisol. You know, that one your body releases bucket-loads of when you’re under stress, resulting in increased fat storage most particularly around the front of your belly?

Before I get too carried away on the evils of cortisol, I should probably back up a little. The truth, of course, is that cortisol – or indeed any hormone – is not evil. Every hormone has an important role to play in your body; actually several important roles. Cortisol is responsible for getting you up and going first thing in the morning (at least in a healthy body it is), and is also crucial for helping you to deal with urgent or stressful situations. It’s just that it’s not such a great thing when your life is so full of urgent and stressful situations, or when you stress yourself through poor nutrition or lifestyle. The reason that this is not ideal hormonally is that a constant stream of cortisol into your bloodstream can result in a number of undesirable outcomes, including:

  • An inability to focus properly
  • Feelings of anxiety, panic, overwhelm
  • Poor digestion
  • Reduced libido
  • And – you got it – increased fat storage. Especially around the umbilical area.

Detoxifying cortisol 101

The thing with cortisol is that it should optimally be release only from time to time. In nature you would only encounter extreme stress or urgency on an occasional basis, and that’s what your body is conditioned for. It would go something like this: stress hits – you get a cortisol boost – you deal with said stress more effectively – cortisol goes away until next stress ensues. But I’m sure you can guess what the problem is when it comes to modern-day living, can’t you? A likely scenario for you and any of your busy family/friends is that your life by definition seems to be full of situations resulting in a steady stream of cortisol release. Am I right? If so (and I really do know this from experience!) it can be very tough to break the effects of this pattern. Here are some tips that I think will help you physiologically as well as mentally.

  • Set clear boundaries. You will never EVER finish everything on your list. Choose 3 things maximum that are important for the day; focus on getting them done first, and then bask in your success.
  • Chunk admin tasks. Designate a set amount of time for emails and paper processing, and stick to those limits.
  • Turn off the TV earlier and get more sleep! Unwinding at night is important, but that extra late-night show really isn’t doing you any favours.
  • Keep the caffeine if you love it, but definitely not after 2pm, and aim for only 2 per day. Wean yourself off sugar and other stimulants.
  • Wean yourself off processed foods by replacing one ‘bad’ food or meal each week with a healthy one. This is a slow but very effective way to revamp your diet.
  • Reduce cardio and increase weight training – not least so you can burn fat while you sleep!
  • Consider introducing some or more ‘anabolic’ exercise into your regime. This means exercise that helps your body rest and repair, and also calms the mind. Yoga is a perfect example. Pilates, tai chi, body balance and the like are also ideal. As you may have noticed I have a little competition for you today which ties in to just that – the chance to win a year’s free membership to My Yoga Online! Keep reading for more info.

Win a free membership to My yoga Online

As you may already know, yoga is one of my all-time favourite ways to de-stress. I practice at least once a week and as a result I’ve noticed tremendous benefits in everything from my flexibility, to my strength in the gym, to my peace of mind outside of the gym. I try and make it to classes when I can, but one of the side-effects of a busy schedule is not always being able to cater to a timetable, and that’s where My Yoga Online comes in.

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!!

GET IT, AT THIS PRICE! >>> https://zw144.infusionsoft.com/app/orderForms/Monetize-That-Shit-No-Matter-What

PLUS!

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

1) What it really means to be magnetic online – hint: it’s not about having a pretty and polished website or online presence!

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

3) Unapologetic messaging and soul baring to call in your true #soultribe

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!

I know!

This workshop is off the HOOK already, and we haven’t even accounted for all the random shiz which will be coming out of me!!

    A good cup of tea, taking time to practice drills or kata from my martial arts study, doing a puzzle, or reading some good fiction all relax me, but none compare to what I do each afternoon:

    Even when my day has been miserable and overwhelming, walking my son home from school in the afternoon gives me a perfect “reset”. This is the one time of day I leave my mobile phone behind, don’t have a laptop, calendar, or even a notebook on me. My little guy tells me about his day, we talk about our plans for the evening or beyond, and always stop to watch the squirrels, or analyze interesting bugs, or whatever catches his attention.

    Often, my housemate or my coworkers comment on the difference in my mood between the middle of a stressful day, and later that afternoon. Now you know my secret. 🙂

    1. Kat says:

      That’s beautiful. Even though my daughter is only one (nearly!), I’m already noticing how relaxed and recharged I am after spending proper time and attention on her. Thanks for the reminder.

  2. Joanne says:

    My relaxation tip is to eat lunch by yourself during the work day once in a while. It’s relaxing and gives you a break from your co-workers.

    1. Kat says:

      It’s so important to take time for yourself. Great tip Joanne.

  3. Bonnie says:

    Sounds a bit off kilter but a good (albeit high dose) magnesium supplement does it every time! Somehow, it just takes the edge off as if time is slowed enough to get a good grasp of what needs to be down and what my priorities are.

    1. Kat says:

      That’s a great one Bonnie. I love using good magnesium in the evenings but – oddly enough – have never really even thought about using it during the day to help slow down. Although I do take one after weight training in order to start detoxing cortisol.

  4. Catherine says:

    The best thing for me has to be a hot bath. With my iPod to dull the roar of my three children. When they make a properly waterproof iPod I will be first in line!

    1. Kat says:

      Haha 🙂 blocking out sounds of the kids seems to be a popular theme here!

  5. Nicking my husband’s Bose headphones (can’t hear any kids squabbling with those ones on!), shutting the door to my room and listening to Florence and the Machine’s You’ve Got the Love. Loud and passionate. In less than five minutes I’m re-charged mentally and ready to do the next thing on my to-do list.

  6. Falcon says:

    For a quick relaxation tip I’ll unplug from all distractions and pay attention to my breath for at least a minute. Easier said than done but makes such a difference in slowing down the mind.

    If it’s nice outside I also like to downloaded a podcast – at the moment I love Two Fit Chicks and a Microphone – and I take a walk through the Botanical gardens for as long as it takes!

    1. Kat says:

      I love listening to inspiring podcasts as well … Tony Robbins always gets me going in the morning, although probably more in a ‘fire up’ sort of way than relaxing!

  7. Lisa Sara says:

    I use a meditation technique to clear my mind and then I focus all my energy on creating a waking dream…I think of something I wish I could dream about, ranging anywhere from lying on a tropical beach, running a marathon, or ravaging Brad Pitt and many things in between, whatever my heart desires at the time. It is very effective and I always feel great for the rest of the day because I can go back and remember things I created almost as if they were actual memories! =)

    1. Kat says:

      That sounds fabulous Lisa! Where did you learn the meditation technique?

  8. Anita says:

    I am ALWAYS stressed esp at the end of the year. To relax I look at the situation at hand and think to myself “is this going to be a problem in 5 years time” – almost 90% of the time the answer is NO and I can just relax knowing that the problem is not worth me stressing and risking my health. Exercise is also another way to beat stress, it just takes you to a different place and makes you feel good… 🙂

    1. Kat Eden says:

      I LOVE that 5 year idea!

  9. Lisa says:

    When I am at my most stressed and overwhelmed I take a deep breath and simply ask the universe (can be God, or the mother ship, or whatever greater intelligence you believe in) to help me keep my head where my hands are. This is a great visual that brings me right back to this moment – where there is NO stress, as most of my stress is caused by either replaying yesterday’s tapes or trying to pre-record tomorrow’s!

    1. Kat says:

      Staying present – that’s one of my favourite techniques, although I do find it tough to follow!
