I’m Getting Sick Of This


Too much time inside,
too many days without seeing our friends and family,
too many missed games on the big day on the field with our teams.

It’s been a tough year for everyone, but I feel as athlete’s we can all agree it’s been especially tough for us.

We live our lives training for game night, honing our skill on the field, practicing with our team and friends day in and day out.


Most of us have been living our lives under the lock down.

Our favorite past times and stress relievers have been taken from us. The things we do to de-stress, focus, and even relax have changed.


I remember a time just over a year ago when smiling was easy. Getting outside and training with my team.


Focusing on practice, the game and the good times we had together.


It’s hard to focus on the positive and ignore the negative these days.

The negative is all around us.

Keeping your mind healthy is more important now then it has ever been.

If you’ve got a routine similar to mine, you’ve been stuck inside lately, working on your physical game.


Exercise comes easy at home, we may not have top of the line gym equipment but simple day to day exercises can help keep you focused.


It’s so easy to focus on the physical aspect of our lives, exercising, keeping our bodies in top shape.

What about our mental state?

Sure, working out and keeping active definitely helps, but its not the only piece of our mental puzzles.


A few of these simple tips can help you achieve that zen feeling and focus:

Get plenty of Sunlight


Sunlight is one of the best natural sources for vitamin D outside of supplementation.


Vitamin D is essential for keeping positive. It helps your brain release endorphins and chemicals like serotonin which directly affect how happy you are.


It may not seem like much but just getting out into the sun can help you out big time.



Set goals for yourself and push your limits.


Do you run daily? How about lift weights? Or just even crunches and sit ups at home?


Start setting goals for yourself and slowly start raising those goals.


Exercising has been found to eliminate low moods, anxiety, and stress. You’re going to feel more active and awake and less lazy.


And a bonus for setting goals for your exercise routine is you’ll start to feel a sense of accomplishments at what you’re achieving.



This one might be new to a few of you.


I started meditating a few years back and I find that most times it really helps.


Studies have shown several key benefits of regular meditation, such as decreased stress, lower blood pressure, and reduced symptoms of anxiety and depression.


I know a lot of these activities and tips helped me in the early days of the pandemic, but I found it was getting harder to keep my head positive and focused on what makes me happy.


So I started looking into how nature can help us stay positive, keep our minds clear, and stress free.


And what I found was both interesting and exciting.


Plants and ingredients used in traditional medicines across the planet for thousands of years.


Let’s take a look:

Rhodiola crenulata Root

While there are over 90 species of Rhodiola, the only one listed in the Pharmacopoeia of China is Rhodiola Crenulata - used as an herbal medicine since ancient times in regions of Tibet.

It's abundant in a compound called Salidroside; alongside rosavin, both are being studied for their potential effects on depression and anxiety.

Benefits of this ingredient:

- Can decrease stress (1, 2)
- Can reduce depression symptoms (3, 4)



Lemon Balm

Skullcap Root


Bacopa Whole Herb

Magnolia bark

Passion Flower

Valerian Root

St John's Wort

Hops Flower

A few months back myself and the Mental Toughness team were discussing ways to improve mental health beyond the traditional exercising, meditation and getting outside routine.


We were all feeling the long lasting effects the pandemic has had on all of us.


We found out about these fantastic plants, and how they can assist with all the problems we were facing:



Lack of Focus


Then we thought to ourselves, let’s try to make a supplement.

The pandemic has hit us all. Hit us all hard. I’ve felt it and I know you have too. It seems the activities we used to use to relax and de-stress, and keep focused just aren’t working like they use to.


It’s not your fault, your brain is just a bunch of chemicals that tell you how to feel. Sometimes we need the help of nature's chemicals to get us focused and back on track.


And that’s why we made Zen State.
