I’ve been thinking for sometime about the importance of living life to our full potential..
It is pretty clear to me that to live fully we need to have the correct energy to do so. Diet, lifestyle, stresses, expectations, workplaces etc , all drain us of our energy sources and gradually over time, they are steadily depleted. We are left demotivated and unenthused mainly because our natural energy has been cut short.
Of course, I am going to emphasise the importance of eating right to balance and maintain your wellbeing and energy. Our food choices ALWAYS affect our state of mind, our moods and hence our behaviour . As far as I see it we are all living on stimulus foods- sugar, refined carbohydrates, far too many cereals and grains, processed food and drinks etc. Because our bodies are loaded with all these unnatural substances and the chemicals to preserve or enhance their tastes, we become quickly addicted to them and we also get used to thinking this stimulus energy they give us is REAL. And there you have it… We exist in overdrive because we consume these things like drugs and they allow us to function fast because they stimulate our autonomous nervous system. The problem is that this can never last. It drives your body into a stare of exhaustion and then eventually disease and illness. So, learning to live without these bad food choices is the key.. If you try to eliminate all these foods and replace them with good quality organic proteins , green leafy vegetables, low GI fruits etc soon it will all become clear as your mind becomes clear too. The first week of elimination will be so tough! You will feel exhausted , hungry , experience cravings , desperation etc – yes like experiencing drug withdrawal. You will then start to realise too that your energy was FALSE based on the foods you were consuming. They simply masked your exhaustion and kept you going . This elimination process allows you to rebuild your energy levels naturally and healthily. Very soon you will start to have amazing energy again but at the same time feel calmer and more balanced. No stimulants other than your own true motivation because you are realising your true potential again as you respect your body and nourish it properly. In my opinion this is key to all you do. You will NEVER look back .. x


Today, I want to look at  the importance of  BALANCE in our lives.
The reason I urge you all to take note is because imbalance in our body  leads to a gradual depeletion of energy.  We are all so busy multi tasking, working harder, caught up in the ‘I must have more’ mind set.   Then complete burn out and exhaustion creeps up on you.
You really do have to start listening to your body. Pay attention to the signs that tell you all is not good and let your body have a chance to recharge.
 Imbalance depletes your energy. Note also the other common energy blockers that enhance  imbalances within the body are :
Not gettting enough exercise,
Eating too much sugary foods,
Living on junk and highly processed food.
All of these add to the problem because they create disrupt  the bodies own biochemistry, depleting it of essential minerals and trace elements needed to produce energy.

When you dont have balance, you will find that soon enough you dont have energy.  When you dont have energy you will find that your atttitude and mood changes, that you find life harder than it should be. Your life can be whatever you want it to be. You just have to nurture and pay attention to the vessel ( your body) and then the rewards will be greater than you imagined!!


The Power that Comes

21st March, 2013

Hi All,
Today’s thought is about why we are all striving to feel fitter and healthier , weight issues and toning up. It seems like it’s a constant battle for some. They try but they never quite get there. They succumb to their weaknesses and easily slip back into their old ways. They feel disappointed and the cycle is repeated mindlessly.
But there are some who succeed beyond their expectations. They lose the weight, they keep it off, they see their new body evolve, they feel fitter and healthier. But it seems their true motivation lies in an unexpected added benefit that they had not anticipated . Suddenly during your transformation, you sense that you feel more ‘Powerful’ , more balanced and in control. While those around you Posted on Leave a comment on THE POWER THAT COMES
