Crafting creativity, flow state, and redesigning rituals with Shane Heath of MUD\WTR
Shane Heath of MUD\WTR

In this episode, I sat down with Shane Heath, the founder of MUD\WTR, to discuss the intersection of wellness, creativity, and entrepreneurship. Shane shares his personal journey of reducing caffeine intake and developing a healthier morning ritual, which led to the creation of MUD\WTR, a coffee alternative that combines mushrooms and superfoods.

Join us for an insightful conversation about the role of healthy habits in fostering creativity, and learn how Shane is revolutionizing the way we approach our daily rituals with MUD\WTR.

My takeaways from our chat:

  • Got a product that could replace a bad habit? Don't be afraid to call it out. MUD\WTR challenges our coffee addiction head-on, offering a healthier way to boost mood and brain power with less anxiety and better sleep.
  • Fuel your creative fire with the right ingredients. MUD\WTR blends brain-boosting mushrooms and adaptogens to help you focus and flow, without the jitters and crashes that can zap your creative mojo.
  • Create a ritual that signals it's time to make magic. For Shane, that's brewing up some MUD\WTR and diving into a creative project. Having a routine can help you slip into that creative headspace more easily.
  • Carve out a sacred space for your craft. Maybe it's a corner of your living room, a cozy cafe, or a secret spot in nature. Wherever you feel most inspired and energized, make that your creative haven.
  • Embrace the power of a quick pause. When your mind feels scattered or stuck, try a few deep breaths or a short meditation. Just a moment of stillness can help you recenter, refocus, and tap into your inner well of creativity.
  • Seek out people and experiences that spark fresh ideas. Shane created the MUD\WTR cafe as a place for connection and creative cross-pollination. Surrounding yourself with interesting thinkers and trying new things can light up new neural pathways and inspire innovative solutions.
  • Let your customers make your product their own. MUD\WTR gets that we all take our coffee a little differently, so they've got creamers and sweeteners to customize those cozy vibes just right.
  • Make 'em look twice with a bold, punchy message, then reel more people in with a broader story that hits home. Shane talks about this like parts of an arrow – the sharp tip demands attention, the middle connects the dots, and the feathered end goes in for the sale.
  • Give your people a home, not just a beverage. The MUD\WTR cafe welcomes folks to taste the goods, bliss out in wellness classes, post up with a laptop, or just hang – all in a space that breathes their vibe.
  • Wear all the hats like a pro and level up scary fast. As MUD\WTR took off, Shane had to morph from creative dude to team leader and people manager in a flash.
  • Already planting lots of seeds? Resist the urge to scatter more. Instead, stick around and water the ones you've got 'til those roots run deep. That's how you build a brand that lasts.
  • Inhale the good, exhale the stress. MUD\WTR kicks off meetings with breathing exercises to get those creative juices flowing. Invest in keeping your team zen and watch the magic happen.
