Double Your Energy While Working From Home
Do you want to increase your energy so you can feel MORE productive at your work?
In this post, I will share SOME of my tips with you.
First, let`s come to a consensus that food is 𝗘𝗡𝗘𝗥𝗚𝗬. And your body is an engine.
For your car to run smoothly and fast, you will want to give it proper fuel, am I right?
The same applies to nutrition.
When we eat in a stressed-out, anxious state, our digestion suffers.
𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝗹𝗼𝘄𝗲𝗿 𝘄𝗲 𝗲𝗮𝘁, 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗿𝗴𝘆 𝘄𝗲 𝗮𝗯𝘀𝗼𝗿𝗯 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗳𝗼𝗼𝗱.
You may ask, “Why am I snacking all day and still feeling hungry?”
This is a common sign that the stress response in your body is ON, and you’re not assimilating nutrients.
So what to do?
Make sure to relax before you eat. Take a deep breath, turn off any screen distractions, and focus on your taste buds.
By focusing on your food alone, you allow your body to guide you how much food does it need to feel nourished and happy, as opposed to 𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘵𝘶𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘥 and lethargic.
Not only does being lethargic affect your mood but it also affects your desire to exercise = causing you to feel even more lethargic.
Movement is life! 💃🏻💃🏻🎶🧘🏻♀️

To ensure you double your energy while staying at home:
— 𝗔𝘃𝗼𝗶𝗱 foods that are a one-way ticket to a sugar roller-coaster (as in artificial sweeteners, flavored beverages, and candy)
— 𝗔𝘃𝗼𝗶𝗱 boredom eating by practicing the 5ws of mindful eating (Why, What, When, HoW do you eat, and Who are you being while eating)
— 𝗔𝘃𝗼𝗶𝗱 sitting all day without getting sufficient exercise
The opposite of avoidance is acceptance:
— 𝗔𝗰𝗰𝗲𝗽𝘁 that what you eat affects your mood and mental power
— 𝗔𝗰𝗰𝗲𝗽𝘁 that Who are you being is even more important than What do you eat
— 𝗔𝗰𝗰𝗲𝗽𝘁 that getting in enough exercise is the best stress-reliever and your body deserves it.
