Do you feel like taking a nap in the middle of the afternoon? Does it seem you just never have enough energy to get through the day?
Your body is reacting to neglect.
How’s laying or sitting around neglecting your body?
You’re made to move!
Rest is essential to health. But there are two kinds – Stationary and Active.
You’re as much energy as you are mass. Einstein’s E=mc2 mass energy equivalence proves it. You have the capacity to move your body, which also means you have control over energy. The more you move the stronger and better you become and the more energy you can channel.
You must make different choices to create change.
If you want an opposite effect of what you’re experiencing, you need to do the opposite of what you’d normally do. When most people become fatigued they want to lie or sit down. What’s the result? You may eventually shake the fatigue, but do you ever really feel energized? Save the stationary rest for night and naps.
Next time you become fatigued try Active Rest - apply the 5 No Matter Whats
No matter where you are, what time of day it is, who you’re with, etc… apply them.
1. Begin with good posture. If possible, stand with your feet shoulder width apart and knees slightly bent. If you’re in a car, sit properly.
2. Deeply breathe - concentrate on pulling your breathe down to your feet. Hold it and count to 3 or longer. Slowly release the breath and concentrate on forcing it completely out. Repeat at least 5 times – ideally do it while applying MOE and M&Ms.
3. MOE- Concentrate on channeling energy into your body. Think about energy entering your body through your hands and feet and traveling through your arms and legs up and down your back.
4. M&M’s - Mindful Motions – nothing strenuous or stressful. Just easy, calm and controlled motions - even small motions such as neck circles will make a difference.
5. QIT Dieting – If possible, reach for some fruit, nuts or dark chocolate.
You have nothing to lose and only energy to gain.
