Achieve your goals faster with optimizing your brain

Angela started her digital nomad journey about 11 years ago and is currently nomadding from Playa Del Carmen in Mexico. Since she was a kid she loved reading self-development books and this is where her journey started. Angela became a certified personal trainer and also got certified as a health coach and nutritionist.

She is a Brain Performance Coach and helps people to achieve their goals faster by optimizing how the brain functions. She also helps her clients create routines, set goals, and informs them about nutrition hacks for the brain and body. The majority of Angela’s clients come to her because of the lack of energy and motivation her clients feel. She gives tools, practices, routines, exercises, and techniques and guides them to overcome this and feel energized again.

Her ultimate goal is to give them the tools to deliver their best whenever needed.

Episode takeaways

In this episode, Angela shares simple brain hacks every digital nomad can implement. A couple of quick takeaways from this episode:

  • Surround yourself with like-minded people who understand you and share similar values
  • Exercise, whether it’s at home or joining a gym but make sure you move your body as it increases your serotonin levels.
  • If you are looking for specific things like foods or places that matter to you, make sure to ask this in an existing community, like a local digital nomad Facebook Group.
  • Measure your progress but be conscious about how you compare yourself with others. Everyone has their own progress and journey and if you are moving forward, that’s all that matters.
  • Think about what you eat and drink in a day and consider making small changes. There are lots of nutrition hacks that can help make you feel more energized and confident.
