Nutrition To Energize Your Life's Work - Part 1

Three Simple Steps to Increase Energy


It’s hard to be productive when you are dragging through each day. On top of that, who wants to purchase anything from someone who can barely muster up the energy to share their product with you?  As speakers and entrepreneurs we need to be upbeat when speaking of our products or services. This is hard to do when you can barely make it through the day. Many resort to jolts of caffeine or sugar throughout the day to keep them going. But did you know that doing that is actually causing damage and may lend itself to more destruction in the long run?


Here are three simple things you can begin to do today to keep your energy up!

1.      Drink clean filtered water. The first signs of dehydration are fatigue and headaches. If you find yourself dragging through the day the first thing you want to do is hydrate your body.  Your goal is to drink half your body weight in fluid ounces daily, up to but not exceeding 100 fluid ounces. Gradually increase your daily water intake until you reach this goal and then maintain it. Also avoid drinking out of plastics, as they leach chemicals into the water and can negatively impact health and energy.

2.      Healthy snacking. When you neglect to have a healthy snack between meals you increase the likelihood of grabbing for a sugary snack to boost your energy.  This boost in energy, however, will only last a short while and then leave you dragging.  Healthy snacks will help keep blood sugar stable and energy up! These snacks should include healthy carbs coupled with healthy protein or fat.  Some great examples include: raw veggies with guacamole, fruit followed by raw nuts or nut butter, and whole milk yogurt with fresh organic fruit.

3.      Drop the Processed Foods. Eating foods in their natural whole form is always best to optimize nutrient and enzyme content.  This helps to nourish our bodies and keep our energy elevated!
