Before you reach for the sugar or caffeine hit!

Standard

The food we eat has a direct result on our health and                                                                                                               our emotional life. Sometimes even when weOxgenate your life maintain a generally healthy diet, we can hurt ourselves in other ways. For instance, hands up who does this – when we feel a little tired we look for a quick boost by reaching for caffeine or sugar to “pick up” our mood. But these substances often create “crashes” that leave us feeling worse than we did to begin with. These substances create a roller coaster of high and lows. No balance here!

Take some time and think about whether you really should have that third cup of coffee or biscuit. How about a cup of green tea and an apple.

What about some exercise. Once again, your new found yoga/pilates/good health routine practice practice can help. The next time you need a pick-me-up, don’t automatically reach for that not so helpful dietary crutch. Instead, try a natural stimulant, for example a quick walk in the sunshine, some deep breaths of fresh air, or your favourite yoga/pilates/good health poses like a few sun salutes of spinal twists. Your favourite breathing technique can also assist (in yoga we use can pranayama) can also help oxygenate—and wake up—your body and mind. Go the natural way, your body and mind will thank you.
