How We Shroom, March: Spring Forward On 'Shrooms

Are you getting ready to spring forward in just a couple of weeks?

Did you know most of Arizona, Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands don’t observe Daylight Savings Time? That means, if you live in any of those places – or travel there – you’re practically time traveling!

Actually quantum leaping may be light years away, but later this month the rest of us will spring forward one hour – leaving winter and its chill (hopefully) far in the past.

If you’re anticipating bringing your gym routine outdoors, now is the time to begin adding Cordyceps to your regimen. Or promote focus and mental function with Lion’s Mane on those workdays when you can’t help but stare out the windows at sunny skies.

Of course, our Four Sigmatic family is full of ideas for ‘shrooming into spring. Check out their tips below:


Growth Manager

Where are you calling “the office” right now?

Right now it’s my kitchen table in Mar Vista, CA. Not having a commute gives me extra time for reading, meditation and exercise in the morning.

Morning person or night owl?

I’m definitely a night owl at heart. But I’ve transitioned to early bird over the past few years, and now love getting up early so I have time to myself before I sit down to work.

Best part of your job?

Working with smart, interesting and talented people, including co-workers, affiliates and partners. I love being surrounded by people and content that are in alignment with what I want in my life… health and wellness.

If you were a mushroom you’d be...

Either lion’s mane – my name, Ari, means ‘lion’ in Hebrew – or reishi, though I’m not always mellow and relaxed, that is the place I strive to be.

Words to live by?

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it” ~ Ferris Bueller

Playlist or audiobook?

Playlist! During the workday I listen to anything with a fast tempo, usually alternative, rock and hip hop from the ‘80s and ‘90s. On the weekends it's reggae all day!

Coffee, Elixir, Or Blend?

Elixirs and Matcha. Every morning after breakfast, I mix the Chaga Elixir and Cordyceps Elixir with a bit of raw organic honey and some unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Puts me in the right place to start my work day. After lunch, I have Matcha with the Lion’s Mane Elixir – also mixed with a bit of raw organic honey and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. It helps me focus through the afternoon.

Secret recipe?

Recently I’ve been experimenting by adding turmeric to my afternoon Matcha drink. Surprisingly delicious!


Customer Service Representative

Where are you calling “the office” right now?

Allen, Texas. I love that I get to call Texas home (Allen to be exact), and my living room my office. Working from home means spending more time with my 5 month old sidekick, my son Arrow.

Favorite way to start the day?

Moving! I start my day with a little meditation and work out.

Best part of your job?

Interacting with all of our amazing customers.

If you were a mushroom you’d be...

Reishi – zen and serene.

How you’re adapting to spring?

Getting outside! I love when the weather starts to warm up and the sun stays out for longer each day. I pack up my little sidekick and we head outside for adventures.

Playlist or audiobook?

Trevor Hall is my jam right now!

Coffee, Elixir, Or Blend?

It is hard to choose when you love them all! My favorite combination that I am loving right now is Decaf Mushroom Coffee + Lion’s Mane Elixir.

Secret recipe?

I love to take my Decaf Mushroom Coffee and Lion’s Mane Elixir, add MCT oil, collagen powder, turmeric and cinnamon, and blend it to perfection.
