Increase Your Energy: A HeartMath Tip

Do you want more energy for fall fun and the things you love to do?

Eat smart and exercise regularly. Thatís what people generally believe is a successful formula for maintaining a good supply of energy. This is what I always thought, too. This formula is a great start, but millions of people who follow this regimen nevertheless find their energy drained by the end of the day or week. I was one of them until I took a closer look and learned why this kept happening to me.

Do you ever wake up from a good nightís sleep and almost immediately begin dreading your day because youíve got either a load of work at the office, a meeting scheduled with someone youíd rather avoid, a million things to do and you believe things will never change? How many of these anxious thoughts and emotions have you had before you climbed out of bed? At a time when youíre supposed to be rested and ready to venture forth, youíve already begun spending precious energy, and your day has barely started. When I became conscious of this in myself, I knew I needed to stop that energy drain.

Research at the Institute of HeartMath and elsewhere has shown that it turns out that our thoughts and feelings are as important to us as the food and drink we consume. It is our mental and emotional diets that determine our energy levels, health and well-being to a greater extent than most people realize.
