Welcome to this week’s episode where we talk to Julian Mitchell:
Julian and Ryan co-founded Life Cykel and their company has been going for 3 years and recognised the relationship between mental health, food, and sustainability.
They recognised that the experience of growing your food, knowing where your nutrition comes from, brings about a sense of community and the company has 30 growers across Australia.
Mushrooms have massive health benefits because they are rich in vitamin B6 and iron and can help in nerve heath to myelinate and re-insulate your nerve cells. Promising research has demonstrated that it can help towards mild cognitive impairments. It also had positive effects on the liver and immune booster properties.
Julian’s definition of happiness is following his passion as it aligns with him. Travelling, meeting new people, and learning is a big passion for him too.
Julian starts his day by making his bed, going for a walk along Byron Bay and a mushroom latte is how he starts his day.
Connecting the dots and spending time in nature makes Julian content.
Spending time being grateful for where the business is helps to keep him grounded. His heart sings when he sees and seeks out inspiring people.
Julian’s favourite meal would be a red coconut curry.
Julian’s non-negotiable aspect of his day would be his morning routine.
Spending time with his friend Lee makes him laugh and find the lighter moments in his life.
Julian uses his “zoom out” time to look at his business and personal life and integrates his gratitude practice in this.
