A recent article in the New York Times raises awareness of the harmful effects of “Energy” beverages. I can understand the need to feel energized to do a presentation, or get through a workout, or to just fight traffic in the morning.
Another question you may ask yourself is: Is there another way? I had plenty of energy as a kid without artificial stimulants, what is different now?
The first suggestion I would make to someone who feels the need for stimulants is to replace the simple carbs (white flour, white rice, white potatoes) and sugars in their diet with quality vegetables and healthy fats. What is missing in the former is nutrients, the latter contains vitamins, minerals and fatty acids which fuel your nervous system and brain.
Next, get moving! Movement is the key to energizing your body, and the benefits are long lasting and wide ranging.
Lastly, take care of your spine and nerve system. Stress is pervasive, when stressed we don’t always make the best decisions – especially with food. People under regular Network Spinal Analysis care report and improved ability to think and concentrate (without stimulants).
We all want to be present, alert and full of energy. You can have this, and be healthy too by taking care of your body and giving it what it needs.
