Maya Ritter is a certified personal coach and trainer, developing her passion for the holistic approach to healing through her personal struggle with body image, emotions, and self-love. 

The key sources to my natural energy come from some deep core healing I did with my gut health and emotional state. Cleansing yourself of the toxicity and bad bacteria we develop in our gut is the most powerful way to source your internal energy. I cut out coffee and keep a big focus on my adrenals and cleansing my liver and kidneys. Drinking lemon water in the morning as well as apple cider vinegar, organic and from the mother, supports the natural release of toxins that are trapped in your colon.

Maintaining a healthy PH balance is proven to significantly reduce inflammation in your gut, as well as keep your energy up. Nutritional balance is also vital to encouraging a consistent flow of energy. I include meditation as a daily practice to help with my emotional center; it’s a pillar to supporting the release of endorphins in the body.

When it comes to productivity, the most important thing is to not overload my plate. A great example that I give my clients is to think of their minds as a web browser – if we have a million tabs open, we get overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin, nor what to focus on. We often crash due to the sheer volume of tabs we have open in our minds.

Start with one task, follow it through until completion, and then move on to the next one. Don’t think ten steps ahead. Stay present with what you need to do, and you’ll be more likely to complete it.
In our overstimulated society we find it difficult to stay focused on the present. It’s important we take the time to clear our minds and reset ourselves. Invest in your health and well-being, and you’ll notice that the issue of focus isn’t as significant as it once was.
Brain fog is often brought on by a poor diet, lack of sleep, and stress. If you constantly feel groggy or depleted, chances are you’re dealing with one if not all three issues. Don’t go for a quick fix on this one, but be kind to yourself. I still have those days where I’m not feeling my best, but getting back on track is the first step. Start by shutting down all technology and getting some rest. When you wake up start your day with a big jug of water and some green juice, meditate, and repeat!
