What would YOU do with more energy?
What would YOU do with more energy? What would change in your work or personal life if you had more get-up-and-go? You may be like many people that inherently know that what you eat influences how you feel. So why then is it so hard to make healthy choices?
Despite the willingness to make healthful changes in their diet, half of Canadians find it difficult to do so. Forty-one percent of Canadians agree that their “life is so hectic they find it hard to include healthier food options on a daily basis.”1
Maybe you can relate to me… I often feel like I am juggling a big ball of fire between work, family commitments and trying to squeeze in time to eat well, keep active, relax and get enough sleep. Often the first thing to go when you get busy or stressed may be exercise and balanced nutrition. Ironically these are the things that help you manage all the chaos and pressures that life hands you.
Consider the following… you may have got used to running on sixty, seventy or eighty percent of your maximum energy and likely have forgotten what peak energy feels like. Chances are you may never have actually experienced what one hundred percent energy feels like and don’t even know what you are missing. The good news is there are simple nutrition strategies you can start implementing today that can impact your energy substantially despite a busy schedule. For 3 tips to triple charge your energy check out my article on the CBC online website.
What would change in your life if you raised your energy by 10, 20, or even 30% by taking a closer look at your nutrition?
