If you knew you were making a choice, you might choose to do things differently.
"Recovery is an important word and a vital concept. It means renewal of life and energy. Knowing how and when to recover may prove to be the most important skill in your life." James Loehr
It is easy to underestimate what an impact your health has on how you feel and how well you "do" life. I did, (even as a nutritionist living in Brisbane!)
Eventually you drag yourself out of bed, still feeling tired, wondering if you slept at all. You rely on your caffeine hit, stimulants and sugar to get through the day.
Exhausted, stressed and irritable are familiar words. Eating is either a chore or a luxury, it's easy to get busy, busy, busy, too busy to eat.
You grab some food, something quick and easy and high energy and high fat. You get home late, tired and cranky.
Cooking is too hard to even think about, you need a stiff drink, you don’t want to talk to anyone or have to be nice. You make it through the evening, you hit the sack, but you don’t sleep well.
Your mind is racing, you are trying to figure out how you are going to do today’s unfinished tasks on top of the ever increasing work load. The alarm clock sounds…
It’s not that you don’t want to be healthy it’s just that you
don’t know where to start or you have tried before and failed.
Or you don't yet believe that it can make the slightest bit of difference...
...to your current situation
But it can.
