How can I get more energy? I’m tired of energy drinks and they aren’t good for me anyway and you can only drink so much coffee! There are energy pills and potions and then there’s just pushing your way through until you drop in a heap on the couch.
Believe it or not, what you eat really does impact your energy levels, and it all starts in the morning.
Kristi: If I eat a doughnut or pancakes I might as well say… night night buttercup! If I have a bagel with cream cheese I might swing it but I can only eat half at a time.
Miriam: Really the best way to start the day is with a protein a carb and a fruit for fiber. Hows a couple of eggs a little oatmeal and a tangerine or apple sound? I know for me I have to have protein in the A.M to last the day.
Here’s a list of four ways you can have more energy throughout the day.
- Eat at regular times, don’t skip meals, avoid processed carbs & chemical laden foods.
- Control your stress use meditation or breathing exercises to ease your mind
- Lighten your load, share your concerns with a friend then let it go, usually what you worry about never happens, but it does zap your energy worrying about it all day.
- Talk to yourself! Yep talking to yourself in a certain way helps regulate your emotions relieving stress. But there’s a technique!
One of my favorite ways to get more energy naturally is Eating!!! Yeah me!
Natural juice in the blender is much better than a juice which strips the fiber out of the veggies. I love to throw a carrot in the blender with a handful of baby greens and a chunk of ginger and slice of lemon. Instant energy! Skip the store-bought juice as it’s like candy bars in a cup!
Also a nice bit of apple with peanut butter or a handful of walnuts and pecans maybe a bit of blueberries on top of a peanut butter sandwich, and a bit of cheese.
Oh okay, now I’m hungry!
Till next time, Miriam and Kristi
