6 Ways To Have More Energy

6 Ways to have more energy

Anything that you wish to accomplish in life requires energy. We all need more energy in some way, as energy is life. But what I see is that most people know what they need to do to have more energy but they don’t value their body enough to do what needs to be done. If they did value their body they would stop putting things that drain energy from their body – Smoking, alcohol, junk food and other substances, etc.

On my never ending personal development journey I discovered the great value of energy and how to master it to achieve big things, which transformed my life. Let me share with you 10 best ways to have more energy right now.

  1. Master Your Breath

We should never ever forget as simple as it is, we can live weeks without food or days without water but only a few minutes without oxygen. Every cell in our body requires oxygen. There are many types of breathing. When you yawn, it is a response to fatigue and your body is telling you that you need more energy. You need to start practising deep and diaphragmatic breathing as your new morning routine. I spend few minutes practising deep breathing each morning.

  1. Drink More Water

Am sure you already drink water every day, but how much? Our body is 70% made up of water but from my point of view, most people are dehydrated. Stop consuming foods and drinks that will dehydrate you. An indication that your body is not getting the amount of water it needs is when you feel thirsty, means you are dehydrated. I always have my 1.5lts bottle with me every day and I consume two of that which is 3lts a day. Of course, it means that I go to the bathroom more, but that’s actually a good thing as my body is flushing out more toxins.

  1. Consume Raw Foods

Most people cook their food before they consume it. That’s is okay, but when you do so, you are killing all the good things like the enzymes and nutrients from the food. If you cook your food I suggest you include more raw food in your diet. There is a natural energetic benefit you gain from consuming raw vegetables, fruit and grains.

  1. Juicing

When you juice your vegetables and fruits you are giving so much goodness to your body and health. I just started this practice and I feel much more energy throughout the day. When you do a juice cleanse it creates an amazing peak, high-level energy for your mind, body and soul. Your body drains energy while digesting the foods you consume. Juicing doesn’t need to be digested by the body so you get a boost of energy whole day if you consume more juices.

  1. Move More

The human body has more than 600 muscles. Do you think all these muscles were given to us to sit all day in an office, in a car or in front of your TV? Of course not. When you sit for long hours, that’s when you feel most tired. I try to stand more and do more activities that doesn’t require sitting. It gives me more concentration, more life and energy. Every day I run, workout or do an intense circuit. It increases the number of red blood cells in my body and gives me more energy.

  1. Sleep More

Make sure that you are getting enough sleep so that you can recover and go full out with all your energy the next day. Studies show that humans need at least 7-8 hours of sleep each day. I believe that it depends on the quality as well. 5 hours of deep sleep is better than 8 hours of interrupted sleep. Tips: Many people sleep with their alarm clock next to their bed, which emit EMFs, which can lower the quality of your sleep. Be sure to set your smartphone on airplane mode to prevent that.

Knowledge is Power?

knowledge is power

So often we hear that knowledge is power. Well, it’s not! Knowledge is only information and it becomes real power only when it is acted upon. What is the difference between a person who cannot go for a jog and a person who can but does not go for a jog? No difference here. The real power is not knowledge alone, it is wisdom. Just like all the muscles in our bodies, the brain needs to be stretched and will function on how much we exercise it.

Athletes are a great example of this. How can an athlete compete without practising relentlessly what he learned? Any type of learning is great but it will not matter at all if you don’t apply and take action on what you have learned. We all know that smoking kills slowly but surely, are you going to stop smoking right now? That is knowledge not being used and it will kill you in a few years if you don’t act.

If you are not happy with your job, relationships or any other area of your life and you know you have to make the change to be able to be happy again. Are you taking a step towards self-improvement? If you are not, then you are not applying what you know you should do.

The more I know the more I realise I don’t know. The more I know, the more I can become overwhelmed with choices and the actions that are necessary. When added up, they seem impossible. I’ve found it’s important to keep in mind that any action of applying knowledge is a step towards progress. Progress is small steps added up to create big change.

Do You Have the Right Attitude?

There was a man who made his living selling balloons at a fair. He had all colours of balloons Including red, yellow, green. Whenever business was slow, he would release helium-filled balloons into the air and when the children saw it go up, they all wanted to buy one.

They would come up to him, buy a balloon and his sales would go up again. He continues this process all day. One day, he felt something tugging his jacket. He turned around and saw a little boy who asked,” If you release a black balloon, would that also fly?” Moved by the boy’s concern, the man replied with empathy.” Son, it is not the Colour of the balloon, it is what inside that makes it go up.”

The same thing applies to our lives. It is what is inside that counts. The thing inside of us that makes it go up is our attitude. In short, attitude is the way we think, feel and react to the things happening around us. According to studies, our attitude is the most important thing when we need a job or a promotion. Yes, surprisingly intelligence and knowledge come only in second place when it comes to this.

We need a good attitude towards all areas of life, including personal and professional. Can an athlete be a good athlete without a good attitude? Can a CEO be a good CEO without a good attitude? Can parents, students, employees or even teachers be good in their roles without a good attitude?

Regardless of your field of expertise, the foundation of success is the attitude.

If attitude is so important in your life, shouldn’t you analyse it and see if your attitude is contributing to your progress or downfall? Your attitude will determine how you look at failure and success. A positive thinker will see failure as part of success and on the other hand, a negative thinker will see it as an excuse to give it all up. So, which one are you?

Once a man interviewed CEO’s all around the world and asked them if they would change anything in their workforce what would it be. They all replied “Attitude”. They would do so by investing in their most valuable asset which is people. The simple reason why some businesses are more effective than others is because they think and act more effectively.

KEEP YOUR KIDS ACTIVE

KEEP YOUR KIDS ACTIVE

We all know that with the advancement of technology such as the smartphones, tablets, laptops and much more to come in the near future, kids are not playing outdoor anymore as much as they use to. They prefer to spend time with electronic devices. It is true that it’s less headache for parents as they do not need to worry much about their kids as they are indoor playing. Well, that’s a pain in disguise…

Yes, the world is changing but it doesn’t mean you have to raise your kids the same way as your neighbour does. You must raise your kids to love playing outdoors and physical activities. According to Dr Louis Miceli, today’s kids are less fit than the kids of 20 to 25 years ago. If you keep your kids indoor this will develop a lazy habit and as the child grow up, and it will be hard to change later, so we need to start them early. Lack of exercise is a risk factor for obesity, hypertension and autoimmune disease, among other conditions.

Here are three reasons why you need to keep your kids active:

  1. Kids that stays active are more likely to get good grades. It increases their learning capacity, their focus and sense of clarity. After 30 minutes of outdoor activity, kids has an increase of 10% in solving problem capacity, says researchers.
  2. If you raise your kids with the habits of staying active and exercise since a very young age, it’s a winner. Why? Simply because kids are still growing, their body and development process are at its peak. If they exercise early they will get a leaner body and will be less likely to be overweight in the future.
  3. When we observe the best performers out there, we often forget that they started early in whatever they are good at today. This is a great reason to start your kids early as it might develop their talents at a very young age.

Limit time spent on medias, TV, smartphones, video games, tablets or any devices that encourage them to be sedentary in their lifestyle.

Make the move parents.

Being me I took my motorcycle back, started the engine and continued my way to the office.

Do not allow fear to make you a small, scared and insecure. We make mistakes because we need to learn, that’s how human being grows and become mature. Mistakes don’t mean you have to give up trying.

Even if you are deeply afraid, challenge the fear or stay small.

Whatever you failed at, it doesn’t make you a fool or stupid, it means that you had at least the courage to try. “which most people don’t”

If you have fear in your job, relationship or any area of your life. The idea is not to let fear take hold of you.

When fear take out its ugly head out, beat it down quickly by doing the things you fear the most.

In fact, here is what FEAR means (False Evidence Appearing Real)

The magic is, once you get back up you are no longer a failure, you are the soldier who is still on the battlefield, the hero who is still on his horse.

We must not forget that all human progress in this world was achieved by people who had fear of failure but they had the courage not to listen to the voice of fear and get things done.

How to Deal with Anxiety and Stress-Best Ways

Anxiety and Stress

 

How to Deal with Anxiety and Stress, Perhaps no other word is so well known and so constantly passed around as the words “anxiety,” “depression,” and “stress.” But while these words have been making the rounds of the worlds of young adults – and even children – these days, it comes as a mammoth surprise how little people actually know of their connotations. Most of the people, most of the time, will know that they are suffering from a severe case of anxiety and depression but will hardly ever know what to do next. Knowledge pertaining to anxiety and depression usually ends at just being aware of the problem – as, for the solution, it is bare to be seen.

Adults have always had the most complaints regarding their being depressed but as we move on we find an alarming number of young adults and children joining the brigade of the depressed and the stressed. In most of the cases the cause of stress and anxiety is not difficult to put down either – financial problems, childhood abuse, post-traumatic stress, loss of a loved one, failure – there is an entire list of things that could cause stress and anxiety in a person. And while it is important, most certainly, to point out what the root cause of depression really is, what is equally important and is totally dismissed is the solution – people often focus on the cause, and the effect, but never the solution.
