What are Adaptogens and How Can They Help You Balance Highs and Lows?

Steven Izen, founder of adaptogen company Elements, discusses how entrepreneurs can benefit from super plants. September 20, 2019 6 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. I was first made aware of adaptogens when my friend, and fellow Entrepreneur Insider expert, Amina Al Tai, mentioned them in her Instagram Story. She’s a holistic business and mindset coach, and I initially thought she discovered some new secret magical potion to aid in self-care. Later, I found out they’ve been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic healing traditions.  Adaptogens are non-toxic plants that proponents say help our bodies resist stressors, physical, chemical or biological.

As per Neil Patel, about 80% of B2B leads come from LinkedIn, followed by Twitter at 13%.  But, just because its a professional network, that doesn’t mean everyone is just waiting for you to pitch them. At the end of the day, it’s still a social media platform. When receiving a […]

It’s not just you — the summer slump is real. A study by Captivate Office Pulse found that productivity can tank by a full 20% during the months of sunshine and swimming pools.
