The Slump

When Your Get Up Is GONE!

You know what I am talking about when it comes to the slump! It comes rushing in at 10:00 a.m. or taking over at 2:00 p.m. or has you crashing by 6:00 p.m. It is seasonal as well as happens when we fall back or spring forward with time. How do you maintain your energy throughout the day?

We cannot always be in the “on” position! Sooner or later we are going to crash and burn out. It is not pretty and then when you get sick on top of that it is just plain nasty business! 


Being Active . . . Moving . . . Stretching . . .

All your energy is going out, but is it coming back in a good, healthy way! Probably not. This explains the slump, the tiredness, the crash, the fatigue, the burn out! Then try to shut your whole being down to get a good, restful sleep of 4 to 8 hours. It can be quite the cycle that takes a toll on your whole being, especially in adding stress, anxiety and tension to the mix!

Hello Caffeine and Sugar! 

  • How do you use your energy wisely?
  • How do you use your time efficiently and effectively?
  • How do you motivate yourself?

Nourishing the body is key as well as hydrating throughout the day! Finding that balance between good protein and not overloading on carbs. Finding that balance with blood sugars, so you are not swinging from low to high and high to low. Find that balance that works best for you and your body to avoid the slump!


Hydrating . . . Refreshing . . . Recharging . . .

I give myself at least 15-minutes in the morning to relax and at least 30-minutes in the evening to unwind! I can get ready for the day and that unwinding in the evening helps prepare me for a good nights sleep. It is a work in progress in getting that restorative sleep to feel rested and have energy all day long though!
