Energy All Day, Everyday?

Who wouldn’t like all day, every day energy eh, it may seem impossible but it isn’t?

Simple small changes to your lifestyle and your diet can start the process off and be supplemented by specific vitamins until you no longer need them. Some people know and understand this but still don’t make those changes. Let’s start together today.

Recently I have been of the mindset, you only live once, let’s have some fun and that’s great but as you get older, it gets harder to lose weight, harder to look fresh, harder to have energy throughout the day and I would rather feel healthy and energetic for many years to come than have a fun filled life for only a few years. What are your thoughts?

Here are my top 5 tips on making those small changes today,
1. Eat better, stop with the processed food and start to cook from scratch. Cook in bulk if you are busy in the week.

2. Plan in some exercise;  by planning it in your diary you are committing to it. It doesn’t have to be strenuous;  a walk, a cycle ride,  swimming all easy to access in the summer months.

3. Mindset; energy is positive so to make the most of it you need to be in the right mindset and have the right positive attitude and I can assure you it will make a huge difference.

4. Sleep; lack of sleep is a huge factor when it comes to energy and mood so stick to the same sleep patterns throughout your week and weekend.

5. Vitamins; vitamins these days no longer need to be a multivitamin as companies are producing them for specific people for specific issues. Make sure you are taking ones that will help you.

I hope you have found some value in this and over the next few weeks I will be going into each tip in more detail as this is simply an overview. I am on this journey with you, so please click follow and connect with me via linktr.ee/shaz_crowley

Are you Mindful of what you Eat?

As a mum who struggles with time, life regularly consisted of eating on the go; standing up, in the car….you name it I ate there except for the right place, which is eating sitting down at the table. In hindsight I truly believe this has had an impact on my weight and never really thought about it until I read an article on Mindful Eating.

In summary, Mindful Eating is simply being mindful of what you eat and whilst I don’t have the time to thank the world for each grain I eat but I am starting to incorporate, albeit slowly, daily the following to help me appreciate my food more.

Here are my Top 5 Tips to help you be more mindful of what you eat.

  1. Eat sitting down at the table, look at your food and when the food is placed in your mouth chew slowly.
  2. Don’t have any device next to you or any music on. If you’re sitting with the family, enjoy chatting to them. If you are on your own, enjoy the peace.
  3. Think of food as fuel for your body and remove all emotions attached to it.
  4. Try to eat at regular set times each day, that way your body will learn and understand when it’s getting fueled and should avoid any rumblings or headaches.
  5. Enjoy your food and when you’re comfortably full, finish. Place your fork down and move your plate, you really don’t have to finish everything in front of you. Now I’m not saying throw the food away, if you can place it in the fridge or the freezer.

I hope you have found value in this and let me know if you can work on one or more of these tips. In addition, if you would like this weeks freebie; “Snacks that are less than 100 calories” comment below or reach out and see you next week
