How can you enjoy more vitality, rather than just function in your day?
Demands from your boss -or yourself if you are your own boss- seem to be continual and can be fatiguing.
How can you maintain the level of concentration and energy that you need to get through your day with more vitality rather than merely existing?
Most of us know that we need to cut down on the sugar and the high fats in our diets.
But what is the better way forward?
Firstly, food is just one element of making our day work better. Our quality of sleep is also important. Quality not necessarily quantity too. Our mind and body rests and rejuvenates from sleep. How much is ideal? Studies have shown that between 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night is ideal. You will know from experience what is ideal for you.
Worry is also an energy-drainer, isn't it ?!
A positive step to reduce worry in your day is to aim to write down in your diary or iPhone, all the important things you need to do. This helps relieve your brain from remembering it all for you.
Food is one element that we do have some control over in our lives.
Most of us know that skipping a meal is not great for you. Sometimes we have had to skip a meal as we were with a client and so on. But the effects can really add up for the rest of your day if this happens. Headaches, thirst, and tiredness are common side effects.
Beginning your day with food that allows your body to really flourish, will enable you to tackle those items on your long list of to-do's.
