Have a percussive headache and reaching for a painkiller? When low on energy, some of us reach for coffee, tea, sweet- whatever gets us going. Seems normal!
I do that too, sometimes. But never on holidays and ninety percent of other days. But definitely, no chemical based energy enhancers.
Listen to the body? What is it saying? Tired. Sleepy. Unnecessary sweet.
In my view, all are crutches for moments when we don’t listen to ourselves and meet our needs. Simple example is: I find kids eat snacks and ‘being’ with a cell phone frequently. In short, ignoring their own needs, health, and sanity. I ask you, if your stomach can work non-stop. After all, doesn’t the stomach need rest too?
This is what I do and it works without stimulants. Rest. Sleep. Walk it off.
Peer pressure for kids and adults seems to make people use stimulants to appear cool, energetic, and a go getter. Instead of peace of mind, many of us involuntarily teach our kids to project a false image.
Do we fear being called an ancient, underdog, or mushy marshmallow?
(P.S. Tomorrow, the other peace😉)
