5 Simple Energy Hacks.
I remember when I thought I didn't have time for anything but a quick lunch of cheese and tomato on toast with a pinch of S&P!
It was when the kids were younger, my energy was lagging, immunity low and get up and go sadly lacking. That's when I knew I had to change my ways...
I was skipping the essentials.
It's easy to do, yet skipping essential nutrients is a BIG mistake, especially when life is full and we're raising our families. Yet this is commonly the time bad habits become a new normal. Running on not much more than adrenaline, we can cope... for a year or two.
Until one day that tired, lack lustre feeling includes:
- Stubborn weight around the middle that just won't shift.
- Joint stiffness or little 'niggles' appear.
- Disrupted sleep patterns.
- Irritability, less patience.
- Waking up in the morning needing a good nights sleep!
- Skin dulls and eyes lose their sparkle.
Nutrients that are essential, are essential because we can only get them from our food. For our bodies to function, these essential nutrients - are essential!
It seems obvious, but I see too many people skipping the essentials or not getting enough in the food they're eating or they assume is 'healthy', and it's not.
It's not intentional, often from habit, lack of time, lack of thought, fear of change, a lack of priority etc.
Yet, by making better choices we instantly start to FEEL so much better, our energy, our mood, our sleep. We gain time and our joi de vivre returns!

Or maybe you're thinking... 'that sounds way too hard' or 'too time consuming' or 'I don't have time right now'?
It's not true.
Here's the thing. You're already taking time to make a choice or to prepare food, even if it is toast and cheese.
Think of it as 'upgrading' the choice you're already making. Same amount of time, same thought power, different choice. You can do that.
The ideal food to eat is grown in a healthy soil and freshly picked, jam-packed full of nutrients and good bacteria. This isn’t always possible and that's why farmers markets or deliveries are a great option.
Wherever possible choose organic foods that don’t carry a toxic burden and weigh you down even more.
