The alarm goes off and you lazily smack the snooze button once, twice, three times... You feel so tired; your body doesn’t want to function but you know you must get up and get your day started. So, you drag yourself up sluggishly. Waking up the morning after a night of debauchery doesn’t feel so good. You recollect eating half a box of doughnuts and washing it down with a glass of rum and coke.
We’ve all experienced something like this, right? Well, even if you don’t drink alcohol but still eat food high in sugar and grease and deprive yourself of sleep, you would have a similar experience. You will wake up feeling dehydrated and tired. Your energy level would be low and you would barely be able to function.
If you were to compare your body to a bank and energy to cash currency, you would be bankrupt. Now how do you avoid this and insure you have enough currency in the bank? Invest in our body! When you make the decision to get enough sleep, eat nutrient dense foods, drink more water, decrease your stress level, exercise, get enough sun and fresh air and surround yourself with positive people; you are investing in your body, and in return your energy level increases.
According to Merriam Webster, energy is defined as the capacity of acting or being active or simply stated, “effort”. When you have plenty of energy you tend to become more productive and your effort increases in your work, goals and even your relationship. This is what makes energy the most important currency!
So how do you plan on increasing your energy?
