1. Preoccupation with others – Family, friends and co-workers surround you. How much time do you allow any one person/s inside your head? What is it about that person that preoccupies your time and thoughts?
2. Fixation with athletes – Sports and games are fun and relaxing. But do you need to watch every single game on television or go to every home game? What exactly would happen if you missed the game? 
3. Fascination with actors – How much time do you spend thinking about what is happening with your favorite actor or actress? Up to date on all the latest gossip? Have you created a…

Feeling Tired? How to Increase Your Energy for Your Health and Wellness

Is this you? If so what can you do to improve your fatigue and your overall health and wellness?

There have been times when I have really been tired and couldn't figure out why I was feeling so tired. I decide to start an energy journal.  Every time I would start to feel tired I would take out my journal and write down the time of the day, what I was feeling ( physical symptoms, emotional symptoms)  and what about my lifestyle could be contributing to my fatigue. 

The energy journal helped me figure out some possibilities. What I discovered is that my fatigue came around a certain time of the day, was almost always connected to how I started my day, and what I was eating and when I was eating I also did some research to find out what else could contribute to my fatigue and my overall health and wellness.

Below is a list of what you should do to help increase you energy levels and decrease your fatigue.

It is the flowing movement of the musical score that transforms mere notes to true song. It is love being and love doing. Yes, it is love loving. Otherwise it is concept, not reality. It is the believer worshipping--otherwise it is empty religion, with all spiritual creativity lost, and if not found in time, destroyed. Movement is the flow of divine life. So the trees would say to you, "speak." And the lake would say to you, "be still." Be still in communion in the company of others so that you may enjoy the lesson of the lake in mutual fellowship. And then MOVE. Find the channel of creativity within your soul. Movement --yes beauty!

Movement is a key component towards total wellness for your mind, body and spirit, whether you are moving your physical bod…

Thankfully, there are a number of ways to cut down on the risk. By engaging in an exercise routine, cutting out foods that can cause heart disease, and avoiding dangerous medications, people with diabetes can help to prevent this dangerous condition.

Get started by walking 30 minutes a day, five days a week.
