Most of us are “on the go” all the time, and it can be hard to keep our energy levels high and active. The good news is that there are some key action steps you can take to get really high-octane energy all the time! Here are the action steps:
- Rest Periodically. No, we don’t mean taking a nap. Research shows that if you just sit and breathe deeply or meditate for as little as 5 minutes, your body actually recharges itself. Most of the time, we’re going so fast that our bodies are constantly behind. Giving your body a 5 minute rest-break filled with deep breathing or peaceful thoughts brings it back up to speed.
- Add Enzymes. Enzymes are the metabolic work horses in the body. They drive digestion, metabolism, the production of energy and more. When you’re short on enzymes, you feel tired and sluggish, and you may gain weight. To kick your metabolism and energy production into high gear, take at least 2 enzymes with each meal, and even 2 between meals on stressful days.
- Balance Movement and Rest. If you sit at a desk all day, your body is at rest. This means your circulation and heart rate slow, and your body generally goes into a resting state. Balance your day by adding some quick five minute walks around the block. If you’re on the go all day, do the opposite and add some 5 minute sitting meditations. A good balance keeps your body refreshed and revitalized.
- Eat bluegreen algae. There is no other food that gives you more nutrients, minerals and energy than this bluegreen algae. It’s 65% protein and its nutritional profile matches our energy needs closely. Taking 2-4 capsules or tablets of bluegreen algae around noon or just after lunch can give you the energy boost you need.
These action steps are simple to do and take just a few minutes. Taking time out of your busy day can actually add years to your life (and make your life much more enjoyable in present time). When you’re on the go, remember to “Take five” to take care of your body – you only get one, after all!
