Your food and beverage choices can have a big effect on your energy levels throughout the day, an expert says.
Your food and beverage choices can have a big effect on your energy levels throughout the day, an expert says.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Energy drinks can contain excess sugar and high caffeine
  • Staying hydrated is important in avoiding fatigue, expert says
  • Eating breakfast and consuming protein can also help energy levels

Editor’s note: Tiffany Barrett is a registered dietician at Emory University’s Winship Cancer Institute.

(CNN) — As our energy levels decrease because of our overstressed lifestyles, many people look for a quick fix to combat fatigue.

Energy drinks mask the symptoms of fatigue and dehydrate the body. The majority of energy drinks contain excess sugar, high levels of caffeine and other stimulants.

Recently, the 5-hour Energy shot and Monster Energy drink have come under fire.

The Food and Drug Administration said this month that 13 deaths have been reported after consumption of 5-hour Energy. Last month, the parents of a 14-year-old girl filed suit, alleging that she died after drinking two Monster Energy drinks in a 24-hour period. Anais Fournier’s underlying heart condition was complicated by caffeine toxicity, according to the death certificate.

FDA checks reports on energy shot

Relying on caffeine and energy drinks makes us feel worse in the long run by causing our system to crash.

Continued fatigue decreases the immune system, making us more susceptible to depression and illness.

So what to do? Exercise, sleep and reducing stress are important in fighting fatigue. But our eating habits also directly affect energy levels. And nutrition can affect energy levels throughout the day.

What you should know about caffeine

Here are some tips on healthy ways to boost your energy:

Drink water

The body needs water — multiple glasses a day.

Being hydrated is an easy and inexpensive way to increase energy levels. You don’t need vitamin water or sports drinks; they only add extra unneeded calories. Keep a fresh water source with you at all times and drink throughout the day. Add lemons, limes or oranges for taste variety.

Eat breakfast

This is the meal that sets the stage for the entire day. Studies show that breakfast helps keep you alert, starts your metabolism for the day and keeps you satisfied until lunch.

But a healthy breakfast is the key. Good options include whole-grain cereals, breads, fruit and lean protein instead of doughnuts, pastries and white breads. A hard-boiled egg sliced into a whole wheat pita, oatmeal with fruit, and whole-grain toast with natural peanut butter are all healthy choices.

Don’t forget protein

Not consuming enough protein during the day can be a primary reason for fatigue. Protein-based foods provide the body with fuel to repair and build tissues. Protein takes longer than carbohydrates to break down in the body, providing a longer-lasting energy source. You can find protein in poultry, fish, lean red meat, nuts, milk, yogurt, eggs, yogurt, cheese and tofu.

Keep your carbs smart

Carbohydrates are the body’s preferred source of fuel. Pick whole grains like cereal, brown rice and whole wheat bread, and avoid sweets, which cause energy to plummet. Many processed carbohydrates contain little to no fiber. Always read the nutrition label.

Snacks are important

If you let yourself get too hungry between meals, your blood sugar falls, and you get lethargic. Keep your blood sugar and energy level steady during the day by consuming snacks. Choosing the right snacks prevent peaks and valleys in energy.

Combine complex carbs with a protein and/or fat for lasting energy. The protein and fat slow the breakdown of sugar into the blood, preventing fatigue. Snacks also can prevent overeating at mealtimes. A few examples of smart snack choices are yogurt with fruit, mixed nuts, veggies with hummus, pears with almond butter, whey protein shake or blueberries with a cheese stick. Plan ahead!

Omega-3 fatty acids

Studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation, combat depression and improve mood and memory. Try to focus on omega-3 fats from food rather than supplements. Excellent sources include salmon, tuna, walnuts, flax seeds, leafy greens and hemp seeds.

Magnesium

Almonds, walnuts and Brazil nuts are rich in magnesium, a mineral important in converting carbohydrates into energy. Other good sources of magnesium include whole grains and dark green vegetables.

Don’t skimp on calories

Skimping on calories decreases your metabolism and causes you to feel lethargic. Keep your energy levels high and increase metabolism by meeting your caloric needs each day. Whole foods are preferred over supplements to obtain protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals instead of one or two single nutrients. Consume a variety of foods for overall health but also to keep your energy levels high.

#Goals – When #Motivation runs out | #VibrantArizona via #HealthCoachForBusyMoms


Goals – When motivation runs out | Vibrant Arizona.

Merianne Drew Schwietz

GOALS – WHEN MOTIVATION RUNS OUT

With the new year upon us, many are thinking about making New Year’s Resolutions. What exactly is a resolution and why are they so important? According to Webster’s Dictionary, resolution comes from the verb resolve meaning: to make a definite and serious decision to do something. This is no light-hearted, passing emotion. This is a serious commitment to act!

Are you thinking about making a healthy resolution this year? Maybe you want to make a commitment to eat better overall. Maybe you want to lose X number of pounds or gain X number of pounds. Maybe you want to finally stop feeling fatigued all the time or you want to get more sleep. Whatever your goal, it is noble and good for you to want to better your health.

But what if you’ve made this goal before? What if you weren’t able to follow-through? Many people think they don’t follow-through with their goals because they lack motivation or they somehow “lost” their motivation.

Have you ever finished a grade in school? Have you ever raised kids and put them through college? Have you ever made plans to meet a friend for lunch and shown up when and where you promised? What if following through on your goals or promises has nothing to do with motivation? Motivation is all about how you feel at a particular moment. What if follow-through has nothing to do with how you are feeling at any time?

When you met your friend for lunch, it happened because you gave your word. When you did the grocery shopping, it happened because you decided to do it, you made a list, you planned to drive to the store after work, and you made it happen. You were resolved. Your commitment becomes your motivation causing action regardless of how “motivated” you feel.

When you decide to do something and then do it, your subconscious mind files it as a success and it contributes to your self-confidence and self-trust. When you make a decision to do something and then fail to do it, your sub-conscious mind files it as a failure. This failure eats away at your self-confidence and your sense of self-trust. Every time you break a promise to yourself, your self-trust erodes just a little more. It’s just the same as if someone else in your life continually breaks promises. You learn not to trust them. You learn to not expect them to follow-through. In fact, you begin to expect them to not deliver on a commitment.

So what if your self-trust has been eroded by breaking big and small commitments to yourself? What if it is so eroded that you immediately roll your eyes at yourself as soon as you make a commitment to better health. While you’re taking a drag from your cigarette, you’re saying to yourself, “I knew you wouldn’t be able to do it. You have no willpower!”

Rebuilding Self-Trust

First, I recommend taking baby steps. Make a list every day of 5 small things you want to accomplish. Start with things you would do anyway like taking out the garbage, making breakfast or doing a load of laundry. As you start checking off these small tasks, your subconscious mind will start filing them away as successes. You’ll start looking forward to checking off the tasks as each one will gives you a small boost in confidence. As you rebuild your self trust, you’ll start adding more ambitious tasks like going to bed on time, turning off the t.v. after one hour of viewing, enjoying 4 servings of vegetables, drinking 6 glasses of water. Keeping promises to yourself is not about seeking perfection. It’s about trusting yourself to not be overcome by failures; to get up again when you fall.

Second, limit your time with people who erode your self-trust. These are naysayers who probably don’t trust themselves either. These people like to chip away at your self-esteem and undermine your confidence. They point to your past deficiencies as proof of your inability to succeed. Ask yourself, “Does he support my goals? Does she encourage me to do better?” Avoid those who do not.

Third, work on changing your self-talk. Everyone has those Mean Voices inside their heads. Your head is a dangerous neighborhood. Don’t go up there alone! Make a conscious decision to change your self-talk from self-sabotage to self-love.  When you fail to keep a promise to yourself and start to think things like, “You’re such a failure. You can’t follow-through on anything!” catch yourself and replace the negative thought with a positive one like, “It was just a small slip-up. I’ll do better next time” or “That was a big mistake. I’ll learn from it and I love myself anyway.”

Cynthia Wall, psychotherapist and author of The Courage to Trust: A Guide to Building Deep and Lasting Relationships, says, “Trust is the heartbeat of every significant relationship, with yourself as well as with others. In fact, the relationship with yourself is the foundation of all other relationships.” Learning to forgive yourself when you make a mistake makes it easier to forgive others. This has amazing health benefits for your own stress reduction too.

When you start building your self-trust back up again, you can begin to tackle those big, hairy, audacious goals (BHAG). Make sure to break up each goal into a set of smaller, easy-to-measure daily or weekly goals. This way even if you haven’t met your ultimate goal yet, you can check off your successes knowing that each small success is bringing you one step closer to your big success. One step closer to your fulfilling your resolution.

Electrolyte-Infused Water: Is It Worth It? (Plus How to DIY)

Lately, I’ve been a little obsessed with electrolyte-enhanced water. The other day, there was a sale at the store–10 bottles for $10–and my eyes did that whirly jackpot thing, cartoon character-style. What’s going on here?

Girl Drinking Water

Water with electrolytes isn’t exactly new–it flowed (heh) into the mainstream bottled-water scene about five years ago, and now you can find it on shelves in just about every grocery store. Electrolyte-enhanced waters have things like potassium and sodium added to them, which help your body absorb the water more quickly. These electrolytes are helpful in preventing dehydration, so they’re especially useful during and after intense workouts. But filtered tap water is A-OK for shorter workouts and day-to-day hydration.

So is it necessary to invest in bottles of the stuff? You can actually DIY a version of your own electrolyte-enhanced water using things you probably already have in your kitchen. Dr. Oz’s site features a recipe from Bob Harper with four ingredients: water, agave nectar, sea salt, and baking soda (WebMD has a similar recipe).Filling a water bottle about halfway with citrus juice–which contains potassium–and distilled water, plus pinches of salt and honey, can make an electrolyte-infused drink, too.

Of course, doing it yourself won’t be exactly like the stuff on the shelves–brands like SmartWater, for example, are also “vapor-distilled,” and most brands are also flavorless–but as someone who’s shelled out more than she probably needs to on bottles to drink post-workout, I love having these cheaper options at the ready.

Do you drink electrolyte-enhanced water–or just go for the regular stuff? Are you a sportsdrink fan?

Cure to Pollen Allergy?


CURE TO POLLEN ALLERGY?
Ahhh~~ Spring time is here, the sun is shining and flowers are blooming. It is supposed to be in the 80′s here this week. Who doesn’t love spring? If you live in an area where the weather fluctuates as much as it does where I live, you are excited when the good weather finally arrives.

However, with the good weather and flowers also comes all that pollen! People with pollen allergies have to suffer with stuffy noses, itchy throat and eyes. It is miserable when you are trying to sleep and you wake up in the middle of the night because your throat is itching so bad. It has been happening to me for the last week.

People have told me in the past that drinking honey helps a lot. I’ve also heard stories of people that drink honey for a couple years have had their allergies completely go away! I have done a little bit of research on this, and it seems like very few people know about this treatment or cure.

What is it?!

What you do is you mix a tablespoon (or however much you want to use really) of honey into warm water everyday and drink it. Or as often as you want. You can also mix it into a warm cup of green tea (which I would recommend). This is a great drink in the morning instead of coffee (which is not so good for you and stains your teeth.. ew). A couple years sounds like a long time, but I think it is worth a try if you won’t have to suffer from allergies anymore. Anyway, honey is healthier than sugar. And there are many health benefits from drinking green tea, so you should be drinking it anyway!

Last year, I tried drinking the green tea and honey mix throughout the spring time and it felt like I had no allergies what-so-ever! I didn’t even have to drink it everyday. I stopped in the fall, so now my allergies have come back . I am trying going to try this again, except without stopping.

Is it worth a try?

Obviously, you won’t see instant results like you would if you were taking some kind of medicine, such as Zyrtec, Claritin, or some prescription drug because honey is not a drug! It is completely natural. It could take days or even weeks until you notice that your allergies are not bothering you. I think that this is worth it because honey is inexpensive compared to taking pills or a spray

Does it work?

Like I said, it has worked for me and my mom. Other people have said it works as well. Here is why it works! Honey is basically vomit from bees, which is collected from the nectar of flowers. Since it comes directly from flowers, it contains small amounts of pollen in it. Not enough to set off your allergies though! It works almost like a vaccine.

Nerve supply is the life supply to all cells, organs, and systems in the body and so is responsible for all function and healing.

How Healing Works Part 1: Energy By Callie Amiday

Over the next several posts I will  provide an in depth explanation of how Intuitive Healing works as well as  other holistic healing modalities.

First let’s review a few major concepts.

  • Everything in the universe is made of energy, including us
  • Energy is Everything
  • Everything in the Universe is connected
  • We humans are created in the divine image and likeness of God

What is energy? Energy is Everything!The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines energy as
1.  a : dynamic quality

b : the capacity of acting or being activec : a usually positive spiritual force <the energy flowing through all people
2
: vigorous exertion of power
3
: a fundamental entity of nature that is transferred between parts of a system in the production of physical change within the system and usually regarded as the capacity for doing work
4
: usable power (as heat or electricity); also : the resources for producing such power
Everything in the universe is made of energy
We learned way back in elementary school that every thing in the universe is made up of atoms.  But what are atoms?  Atoms are mostly empty space.  In elementary school we learned that protons and neutrons make up the center of the atom which is called the nucleus.  Orbiting the the nucleus are electrons.

Drawn to scale.  If the protons and neutrons were a centimeter in diameter.  The electrons would be less than the diameter of a hair.  The entire atom’s diameter would be greater than the length of 30 football fields!
Another mental picture.  If an atom were as large as a football stadium, the nucleus would be the size of a small ladybug crawling across the 50-yard line. In spite of this size difference, virtually all of the mass of an atom is concentrated in its nucleus. One electron, which has a negative charge, weighs only 1/1836 as much as the lightest of all nuclei, that of the hydrogen atom (proton).   What is between the nucleus and the electrons?  Empty Space!  Therefore most of the universe it empty space.  Actual physical matter is only a fraction of the universe.

The rest is energy in other forms both within our capacity to comprehend as well as outside of it.  These other forms are, light, thought, vibration, and feeling to name a few.
