EXHAUSTED TO ENERGY !!

exhaustion 1

Are you bored with feeling tired ? there are a few little secrets that help us store some energy away…………………

I have noticed through my clients recently that they use the word exhausted much more than tired, they truly feel exhausted,so I thought I had better try to find out why this is ? I have reached out to a few of my friends within the profession  of nutrition etc., to see which pattern is being followed here, from the moment we are born we give and take energy, obviously we take away more that we replace ! the price we pay for this is with our health…. tiredness can have many reasons and more than one can be medical, if you have tiredness symptoms and it lasts for more than a 3 month period, you really should seek medical advise. 

exhaustion 2

One of the main reasons is we are not eating what we should, are you really eating enough real food, everything is so easy, micro wave, canned everything we need for a quick easy life, a lot of young people do not know how to cook, because the meal is ready wrapped and just needs a quick visit to the micro wave, this is great…………occessionally if necessary, but it is not a healthy habit to have !! When you eat this way, you are missing out on vitamines, minerals, antioxidants and other great compounds that you find in real food. The processed and junk foods just don’t have enough, you will not be able to fill yourself with energy this way, you need real whole food. So what are you going to do about it ? If you can start to eat three meals a day and two snacks you are actually eating 35 times a week, if seven of those 35 are real foods, if you add slowly to this you will very quickly achieve an intake of possible 15 out of your 35, and will be doubling your right intake of goodness. There are two important things to remember that is to make sure your body receives enough vitamin B and co-enzymes Q10 these are key for energy. 

Another little tip, is to stop all this delivery to your door, there is a very good reason for you to go to the local store and to buy your food, one and important is you can see what you buy, but most importantly you need to take that time to stretch your muscles and walk a little, you bend and lift, you maybe thinking it is your time that you need for other things, but, think about this ! If you do not look after your body and do have medical problems due to this, think how much of your precious time, you will need to give up ? Its worth thinking about right ……………………..Remember that your body will only carry so much weight comfortable and to do no harm, so don’t go lifting crates etc., everything needs to be done in a sensible manner, Yoga and Pilates are excellent exercises for strengthening our muscles. Gardening and walking are also an excellent way to look after our bodies.

Have you ever given thought how breathing can affect our energy levels, it is said “The way we breathe has a big impact on our biochemistry in particular on our ability to use body fat as fuel” As we now have such busy lives, we tend to be in flight or fight mode 24/7 before this permanent hustle in our live, we would only have the odd rush of adrenaline ! we suffer far more due to the caffeine intake we have, and living under pressure, our stress levels are far higher. We now live on a hamster wheel, we get up take in coffee, we slump in the afternoon,we take coffee,we return from work, we take a coffee !!! are you surprised we are permanently living in stress, we need to be able to use our fuel, our fat that is stored, this can be done by relaxing and breathing , long and slowly, instead of our short breathing, learn how to deep breath, when you inhale through the nose, feel your tummy expand, gently pause then slowly exhale again through the nose. You can do this as you work, try to take in 20 long breaths every hour if possible, if not at least when you wake in the morning and the last thing before we go to sleep, find your time, whenever even if it’s while your waiting for the kettle to boil. 

As I have mentioned many times, sleep is one of the most important things we need to do, as an adult you need between 7 and 9 hours a night.

Always be thankful, we spend most of our day, chasing our goals and obligations in life, which of course can be really exhausting, but never forget to “smell the roses” as they say, notice everything around you that you have reason to be grateful for, let yourself enjoy what you have, enjoy each and every moment, this is what joy is all about and joy will always give you a depth of energy. 

It is also your responsibility to monitor your own stress levels, as this can be a big energy eater ! You need to think what creates your stress and slowly take control of each situation, when you feel stressed, you need to ask yourself what you are afraid of ? when you solve this you can start to relax.

THE AIR YOU BREATHE

breathing

Maybe we do not realise how essential breathing is to us, until we have a difficulty doing so, breathing is a function that we do whether we are conscious of it or not. When we are aware of the way in which we breathe, it is when we can make the most of that breath, this breath allows oxygen to nourish the muscles that we use and to release a combination of chemicals, that we do not need but is stored in the muscle. These chemicals are related to pain and fatigue, and they are substances that we are desperately trying to rid ourselves of. To be able to fulfil this we need to take in an ample supply of oxygen , but also that we exhale correctly at all times, fully using the lungs. 

breathe 2

As we do different things and exercises we need to do and know different ways of breathing, if we were to sing at the Opera we would need to get right under the diaphragm, puffing the stomach outwards. A musician on the other hand playing a brass instrument  would breathe into the stomach  and fill the entire chest area, then the throat with air. To be able to do this, you will have to retrain your form of breathing, for sure, when we inhale we tend to exhale the top part of our chest, and we believe that this is a deep breath, but in effect it is a shallow breath. you can see this more clearly with someone who suffers from asma , there breathing becomes very difficult and air is gasped into the upper part of the lungs, in an act of something that looks more like swallowing than breathing., they should learn to breath into the back where we can expand the area of the small ribs.

The oxygen intake allows nourishment to travel to the muscles being worked, as we fully exhale, it allows all of the unused gases and chemicals that we don’t need a way to escape. When we release these elements from our body we become more clear-headed, we have more energy, we also release lactic acids within the part of the muscle where we feel pain and soreness, and the most important part is we become more relaxed.

Happy Breathing ❤

EMOTIONAL WEIGHT……………………………………………………………………………

Do you carry emotional weight, do you know what it is ? that feeling when you feel you carry the problems of the world and it’s wife !! or just that the problems are yours and yours alone, and come with 100 kilos, your shoulders are down and round, you have lost the ability to stand straight with shoulders upright and square. These problems can be solved, the great majority are helped along by third parties and not always by your own doing, maybe you could be found guilty of letting a problem flourish with a third party and not taking it into hand previously, but it is never to late to make a wrong right and to move forward, whether this is related to your work place, or your friends and family or even legal, they can be processed and released.

There are certain moments in our life when we shut down completely and forget to stand up for ourselves and let others cross a line that you are not comfortable with,this kind of problem can at times be worse than a legal problem, for example if we have problems in the legal department, you would transfer this to your lawyer and hope for a favourable outcome, you have your output and are involved in this process, but, the law is the law (not always applied with full justice i will admit) but we have done all we can to resolve this problem, which helps for us to release it and not let it weigh us down, day after day, at times we need to accept things as they are and move forward, the same is to be said of our personal problems, if you feel you are surrounded by various problems it is important to take a sheet of paper and write them down one after the other,number them and then start to work through them one at a time, this will help you not to suffer a complete shut down, when you try to solve problems all together it’s like putting your brain into a spin dryer, it can not cope, but by writing them down you can concentrate totally on one at a time

How Well Do You Know Yourself

Itis very important to do this by yourself,you can discuss these problems with others if you feel better, but do not let that third party influence or interfere inevery thought and move you make, family and friends can be a great moral support, but they can also be an added weight, for some it is a time for them to grow, to feel superior and try to take control of you and your life. You may feel that a friend or family would not do that to you, but some one who cares about can become over protective and not even realise the role they are playing, if this is the case you need to talk it through with them and let them know that you appreciate their opinion and help you are in charge and control of your life, as an adult person and not to be taken by the hand like a child

.There is a very simple but effective way to lighten your load, once you have numered and wrote all your problems or worries down, you need to go to the outdoors and find stones, the same amount as your list shows you, you then place those stones into your bag, when you lift this bag, you will see the true weight you are willing to carry around with you, as you start to work through your problems or worries and feel that you have resolved as much as you can and are able to release them, take a stone out of the bag, continue to do this, in your own time and pace, until your bag is no longer heavy, therefore you are no longer lifting and taking with you emotional weight with you during your day………………….you feel better, life becomes better,no matter what your problem is, you have to move forward,if it is something you cannot resolve, let it go, accept it as it is,do not procrastinate…………………….life is to short,if you start to think that the longer you hold onto it , the longer it will take for something new and exciting will take to come into your life, you need to make room for the new and the good. Take the time to do this little exercise, you maybe surprised at the outcome.

ALWAYS TIRED…………………………………….

Cronic fatigue or fibromialgia are two of the most least know about illness of our times, there is now a new method which is holding out a lot of hope, if you have muscular pain tiredness, headaches,sleeping problems or lack of concentration, you could be suffering from these strange illness, which seem to affect more women than men. It is also known as the invisible illness, due to the social incomprehension it has on the affected, it creates great problems, with a big impact on your health and the quality of your life. Knowing exactly what causes this and finding a cure, is something that still escapes the medical profession, however it is known that psychological help,a good diet and the suitable exercise for your case, can help but is not magic wand.

It has been proven that today’s living is very different than that of generations gone by and is a big factor in this illness, it has been discovered that when there is no equilibrium between the pressure of your surroundings and your own needs, today you are expected to perform with excellence at work, family, your partner friends, modern life is full of demands and your mind is never at rest. If we are not careful we can end up holding all this inside,which is not good for your body and overloads your mind as well , this is turn make the suprarenal glands to work over time and this will then produce great amounts of cortisol or adrenaline…….this then will effect your immune system,skin,muscles,heart,intestines cause inflamations glands and throat temperature stomach pains sickness and many more that brings you to tiredness or fibramialgia, It is most important that you find a space in the mind to be conscious of the body,with your emotions intuition and feelings to find a language that enables you to express yourself. If not you will find that mind and body are not as one, the balance is very important.


The following may be of help to you if you find you are suffering in some way
Footing, yoga and eating chocolate (in moderation) will create secretion of endorfins, this will give you pleasure and lighten your discomfort.
Say NO – You have to know how to say no to excessive demands that are made of you or that you know you cannot complete.
Take part and act- Learn how to ask for help, delegate responsabiltie’s at home and your work place.
Switch off – Take a break when needed or slow down where possible. Knowing how to breath correctly and relax can become your best friend !!!
It is very important that you know your own body,your posture,breathing,voice know what clears your mind and pushes away anxiety.

Have a great day,
