MOTIVATION MONDAY: Energy Levels

Happy Monday, start to the week, and just DAY to y’all! How are you?

Today I want to talk about some natural, God-given gifts that improve our purely physical energy. A lot my blogs focus on what is purely spiritual because spiritual energy equates to physical energy. But undeniably there are incredible wonders on this earth that healthfully and incredibly aid our physical health and energy.

Coffee. Coffee beans are found in nature and contain a chemical that  blocks the buildup of adenosine, a sleep hormone, in the brain. Proven natural antioxidant that boosts focus and mental clarity.

Cinnamon. Cinnamon, also a natural occurring polyphenol, increases insulin sensitivity and can keep blood sugar even. Just the smell of cinnamon can spark memory and improve thought clarity.

Oatmeal. This powerhouse combo of protein and fibre gets digested slowly, which keeps blood sugar stable all day. Potassium and magnesium are also abundant in rolled oats, and are proven energy boosters.

H2O. The old emphasis on 8 glasses of water a day has been recently researched as wrong, and that the focus should be on true thirst. When we need water, our bodies will tell us, often through our energy levels. Dehydration has been proven to lead to fatigues

Quinoa. While it is a whole grain, it’s widely known as a complete protein, as it has more grams of protein that any other plant source on earth. It also contains folate, magnesium, and phosphorus.

There are so many incredible, remarkable ways God has blessed us for physical fuel and well-being, and in submission to Him we can become more and fit to minister this food to others and see it as simply a gift from the Lord for fuel for ourselves.
