Our bodies love routine, and our gut is no exception. The bacteria in our gut have their very own circadian rhythm, kind of like its own “gut clock” which helps to regulate functions and processes in the gut. So, here’s some healthy lifestyle tips for your daily routine to keep the good vibes flowing.

Keep Up A Good Mood

Stay Active & Exercise

Regular exercise is not only a good habit for a healthy lifestyle, it’s also great for physical health and can boost gut health and mood. For some, gentle exercise like yoga can also help to create a calm headspace which supports good communication between the gut and the brain.

Better Sleep Better You

Not only can a broken night’s sleep leave us feeling tired and irritable, it can also affect gut function. Disruption to sleep and our circadian rhythm can impact the balance of the bacteria in the gut. So, it’s super important to take good care of our gut if we want quality Zzzz!
