Enhance Your Energy

Image from “She Know’s Woman & Style”

Hello Exquisite Women,
We all could use more energy, right? I have never heard even one of my client say they couldn’t use a little more energy. Most of my clients are not sleeping well or stay up too late. This is a huge contributor to their low energy level. I understand this challenge myself. I have a tendency to be so passionate about my work that I get lost in it and before I know it, it’s l-a-t-e! I am doing much better about creating balance and getting a good nights sleep. I try to be in bed by 11pm at the latest which is great for me. Being self-employed I can set my own hours.

I don’t know about you but if I stay up too late for too many nights in a row my body starts to talk to me. I tend to feel so exhausted when I wake up, as if I had a bad hangover and had been drinking all night. Oh yaa… I remember those days… awe to be young again… I’m just kidding! It is very important for us to take care of ourselves. When I was young I had no real understanding of the importance of good health. It affects our energy, focus, mood and so much more…

Here are some suggestions when it comes to enhancing your energy levels:

Enhance your sleep by setting an earlier bedtime and reducing alcohol use. Alcohol can contribute to sleep disorders. It can disrupt your cycle of sleep as and the length of your sleep state as well as the time required for you to fall asleep.  Your brain and the body are regulated by a “circadian clock” which affects your sleep cycle and ultimately your energy. Its important to have a regular schedule, for waking up and sleeping at night (even on the weekends when we are tempted  to sleep-in). This routine will strengthen the circadian function and can help with sleep at night. When we get a good night sleep we have more energy throughout the day.

Reduce stress by engaging in cardiovascular activity at least three times a week and strength training at least once a week. Exercise actually is a stress-buster. It raises your endorphins, which is huge! Eat small protein high fiber meal or light snacks every three hours, to keep your energy blood sugar and energy levels up. Feed your brain with amino acids. You’ll find amino acids in protein-rich foods, such as egg yolks, peanuts, liver, meat, fish, milk, cheese and vegetables. Broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower are also excellent sources. Amino acids are the key ingredient of neurotransmitters which carry messages from neuron to neuron within the brain.

Learn to notice signs of imminent low energy flagging, including restlessness, yawning, hunger, and difficulty concentrating. If you find you need to take a nap in the middle of the day every day, it may be a symptom of low energy. If you feel really tired and are just dragging you could have lack of iron in your blood which may be the cause of your low energy. If your thyroid is low you could have hypothyroidism, which can make you sluggish. If you are continually feeling lethargic be sure to consult your doctor. Your doctor can test you to see what exactly is going on.

Take brief but regular breaks, away from your desk, at 90 to 120-minute intervals throughout the day. Stretch and take a big breath. It will oxygenate your body.   Breathing is one of the best ways not only to calm yourself, but also to energize your body. Another reason people feel tired is that they are dehydrated. It is amazing how import water really is. If you were dehydrated, you will immediately feel more energetic after drinking a glass of  water.

 Spirulina is a blue-green algae , which is natural. It is found in many freshwater environments, including ponds, lakes, and rivers. It can be consumed by humans and animals. It is usually taken as a nutritional supplement. It contains a rich supply of many important nutrients, including protein, complex carbohydrates, iron, and vitamins A, K, and B complex. It enhances energy without stimulating you. But always check with your doctor first before taking any supplements.

Laminine  is natural as well and contains 22 amino acids, trace minerals, vitamins and Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF).  8 Clinical Studies of Laminine have shown positive effects on Physical, Mental, Emotional Strengths and Overall Health. I’m really excited about this new product, but as mentioned earlier always check with your doctor first. It is a super food which simulates the brain to manufacture more undifferentiated stem cells. Laminine is a form of a natural ‘adaptogen’ helping to create a state of balance or normalization and restore the body to its natural state of homeostasis. Like Spirulina it enhances energy without stimulating you. It is full of nutrients as well. It offers so much more because of the 22 amino acids and Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF), which takes it to a whole other level.
