How to Stop Being TIRED All the Time

How to Stop Being TIRED All the Time

Three of the most powerful energy increasing principles to skyrocket your energy:

1) Optimize your nutrition. We literally are what we eat, and are able to digest. It’s so important that you’re eating a plant-based, whole foods diet and avoiding the four foods that rob your energy. What are the four foods? Gluten, dairy, sugar, and caffeine. You could be eating all the healthiest foods, but if you’re still including a lot of those foods in your diet, your energy is gonna suffer.

First, cut back or cut out the four energy draining foods and instead start including more plant-based, alkaline foods. What does that mean? Well, it means fruits and vegetables, it means whole grains, nuts, seeds, and beans. It means food that was once alive.

The number one energy food, which also happens to be the number food that’s missing from most people’s diets, is greens. Green food is loaded with chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is kinda like the blood of a plant and it’s amazing for our blood, it helps support our red blood cells which carry oxygen, which give us energy.

You want to start incorporating more greens into your diet. How you do that? Eat a salad, eat a massive salad every day, either for lunch or for dinner. This is a super simple strategy and there are a million different ways that you can jazz it up and make it fun…from salad dressings to toppings but the key is to keep it simple. Also, commit to incorporating a green smoothie or a green juice in your diet.

Smoothies are a lot easier to kinda put together. All you need is a blender, some fresh fruits and vegetables, throw all that in there, super simple, super easy. Now, juicing does take a little bit of time, but now, most stores carry fresh cold-pressed juice, green juice. You want to go for the green juice because the fruit juice is loaded with sugar which can harm our energy.

2) Optimize your digestion. Yes, you can be eating all the most amazing, alkaline, plant-based, healthy organic food, but if your body’s not able to absorb and assimilate the nutrients, you’re not gonna be getting optimal energy. So pretty much, you’re eating all this good stuff, but if your digestion is compromised, your body’s not gonna know what to do with all that nutrition. To optimize your digestion start by eating mindfully. Mindful eating is such a powerful practice and it’s so simple. Mindful eating is slowing down and really being present with your food, taking one bite at a time and really chewing your food, instead of inhaling it.

Also, consider supplementing with digestive enzymes. Enzymes are just catalysts that help break down our food. Supplementing with a high-quality enzyme formula supplement can do wonders for digestion. Also, supplementing with a high-quality probiotic can also help with digestion.

3) Master your stress. Stress is the number one drain to our energy and it’s pretty much impossible to avoid. So, you have to learn, not just to manage your stress, but to master your stress. There’s a lot of amazing tools in order to do that. Most of the stress that we experience today is, chronic, unmanaged, mental emotional stress.

We’re not getting chased by tigers, our life generally isn’t being threatened. So, it’s this chronic mental stress that we need to learn to deal with. Have to get a handle on stress by implementing some simple practices and in many of my other videos I talk about this, but meditation.

Meditation can be as simple as just taking five deep breaths just to relax yourself and reset yourself, it’s so powerful. Transition meditations in between activities are also a great practice. Let’s say you’re picking the kids up from school and then you’re coming home and you have to get to work in between that, that’s a little bit of a transition. High performance studies show that a lot of energy is lost in that transition, so taking a moment to reset yourself by simply taking five deep breaths to center yourself. This will really have a massive impact on the level of energy you have…try it.

The number one reason that people have trouble sleeping, which massively impacts our energy and our recovery, is stress. So there are some simple practices and simple things that you could implement into your bedtime routine that would really help you get to sleep a lot quicker and help you stay asleep.

What is High Performance Health?

First let me start by saying high performance health isn’t just for elite athletes or top performing entrepreneurs, CEOs, executives and business leaders.  It’s really for anyone who seeks to experience more energy, focus, and vibrancy! 

High performance health is experiencing how good your body and mind are designed to feel consistently over the course of your life. It’s an ongoing feeling of physical, mental and emotional energy, vibrancy, passion, purpose and personal power. It’s the state of a calm, focused, mind and strong, vibrant, balanced body.

It’s intentionally choosing to elevate your energy and health to increase your performance.

Living and leading a high performance health lifestyle allows you to maximize your physical, mental and emotional energy to make the greatest impact on your family,  business, community and world. It’s using the tools and technology available to revitalize, optimize and transform your level of physical health and energy.

When you look and feel vibrant and energized you’ll begin to optimize the other important areas of your life…relationships, finances, career…everything gets better.

Health and high performance are directly related. Think of your body as the hardware and your mind the software. If your body and mind are in poor shape your performance greatly suffers as does your ability to contribute your highest and best to your family, career, community and the world.

Developing high performance health habits will allow you to experience how good your body and mind are designed to feel on a consistent basis, helping you to perform at your full potential, contribute your best and leave a lasting legacy.

You can’t have an extraordinary quality of life without the vessel that’s going to get you there.

To operate at our full potential, it’s essential to develop new ways of thinking and being. We must be more conscious about what we choose to believe, think, and do regarding our health because if we are not we’ll be conditioned by our environmental norms which foster low energy, poor performance, sickness and disease.

The 3 Pillars of high performance Health

1. Psychology (mind)
2. Physiology (body)
3. Purpose & Meaning (spirit)

Each of these pillars effects the other. For example, a busy, stressed-out mind creates tension and tightness in the body. A physically tense and tight body leads to poor decisions. Consistent poor decision lead to a lack of purpose and connection to something greater.

4 Elements of High Performance Health

1. Mindset: (Habits, routines, practices)
2. Nutrition: (Habits, routines, bio-individuality)
3. Movement: (Habits, routines, methods)
4. Rest & Recovery: (Habits, routines, practices)

Each of these elements must be optimized to experience high performance health. It’s through creating structured balance in how you think, move, eat and relate to others that high performance health is experienced.

The best news is I’ve found it’s often the simple choices and changes done with consistency and intention that make the biggest impact leading to the experience of high performance health.

You can take your health and performance to the next level by using the simple tools, technology and strategies now available…

Secrets To Fall In Love With Working Out

I believe in keeping it simple! By following these 6 simple tips, you will be well on your way to a physically balanced body and a healthier, happier you!

1. Plan it!
Not having a plan is like rowing to the middle of a lake and then dropping your oars. You must create a personal plan of action in order for your exercise strategy to be successful. First, know what you want to achieve, then map out a specific plan to get there. Keep your plan simple. One big reason many people fail when starting an exercise program is they make it too complex and get overwhelmed. By following the tips in this video you will be off to a great start.

2. Make time!
You’ve decided to start, now MAKE the time to incorporate exercise into your lifestyle. There are 24 hours in a day, every day we get them and every day we use them. It’s not about more use of your time, it’s all about better use. Think about how much time you are willing to devote to improving your physical body per week. Then ask yourself, “What time of day works best for me?” If you’re a morning person, set aside some extra time each morning to exercise. Make a schedule of when you will exercise and stick to it!

3. Make it fun!
If you don’t like jogging, then don’t jog. This should be common sense, right? Wrong. So many people stop exercising because they start their program with activities that they don’t really enjoy …let’s save those activities for the company holiday party. Instead, let’s make exercise fun!
There are so many ways to get fit. A few of my personal favorites are: weightlifting, yoga, pilates, walking, jogging, swimming, playing sports and bike riding. Think about what you like to do and go from there. Still lost? Check out classes at your local gym for ideas or better yet, try some of my favorite ways and see what works for you.

4. Mix it up!
Adding variety is essential to a successful exercise program. Think outside of the box… Include different types of activities in your exercise routine and think about different places you can do those exercises. One of my favorites is jogging along the beach. Adding variety to your routine is essential to achieve a physically balanced body.

5. Outcomes – Set & Track them!
Notice how I didn’t say goals. Goals are either achieved or not achieved. Outcomes, on the other hand, are measureable. By setting outcomes and tracking them, you will be able to see your progress overtime and stay motivated you to keep it up.
Set some realistic outcomes for what you want to achieve. It could be that you want to drop 10 pounds for summer to fit into that new bikini, or maybe you want to complete a 5K that has been on your bucket list. Once you have your outcomes set, track your progress. Not only will this ensure you are achieving your outcomes, it also drives you to stay on track!

6. Ask for help!
Don’t be afraid to seek out a qualified exercise professional for assistance. They will help you create a safe, effective exercise program. By hiring a pro, you can be assured that you are doing the exercise with proper form and maximizing your efforts in a safe and effective way. Additionally, you will have someone to hold you accountable, help you stick to your action plan and push yourself past mental barriers. Which usually is the only thing standing in your way to success?
