Do you need more energy? In our society, we always seem to be on the move, which requires tremendous amounts of energy. The problem is most people do not have the energy they desire. This lack can lead to feelings of frustration and hopelessness. I want to take a couple of weeks to help lead you on the path to increased energy. You want to have good energy and function? A strong brain to body connection is imperative. If have read any of my previous articles, you know that the brain, spinal cord and nerves make up the most important system in the body, the nervous system. The brain continually sends millions of healthy messages down your spinal cord and out your nerves to bring power to your whole body through this system. It is like an electrical system that connects everything together. You need a strong, well-aligned spine, one that is not shifted out of place, in order for these messages to flow properly. When bones shift out of position, usually as a result of stress, nerve pressure is caused. This nerve pressure blocks function and lowers the control of your body, which, in turn, may drastically lower energy levels. Does your body get the proper fuel? Your body is like a machine and needs proper fuel. Some sport utility vehicles require high-octane fuel to run efficiently. Likewise, your body needs as much natural, high-octane fuel as possible, through proper nutrition, in order to have good energy levels. The three main foods that sap energy are trans fats, sugar, and soda. Trans fats are found in processed or packaged foods. If you take in too much sugar or soda, not only are energy levels affected, but B vitamins, minerals, and calcium is depleted. This can cause other health issues in addition to lack of energy. Lastly, and this may seem the most trivial, do not forget to get enough sleep each night. You have to make this a priority. If you don't set a bedtime goal and stick to it, you will easily find things to keep you up at night. There's always something else you can finish, something else you can clean or accomplish. However, lack of sleep builds up and wears you down and eventually causes you to become sick. Getting 7-8 hours of sleep a night is very beneficial. It is also good, when possible, to fit in a little nap through the day. Keep this nap at 20 minutes, though, so you do not fall into an unhealthy sleep cycle. Getting adequate sleep will help your energy levels, help you manage stress, and help your body to heal. I hope this article helps get you on the road to improving your energy by 100%. The more energy your body has, the more you can get done in life. Join us on our next free teleseminar. It will be Thursday, July 22 @ 6:30 pm.
