Everything is Energy

Everything is energy. We are energy. Life is energy. And when we run out of energy, we run out of life.

Life is Maintained by Energy

Maintaining our energy level when our bodies are constantly consuming it requires fuel. Our fuel is known as food or nutrition. Without proper nutrition, we are not able to function properly. 

Are you a race fan? Or do you just drive a car? Normal cars can function on regular 87-octane gas, but race cars must run on high-octane fuel because they’re tuned specifically for performance. The higher the octane, the better the performance of almost any car regarding power output, efficiency and longevity. 

Productivity Requires Fuel

If you want to perform your best, then you need to eat your best. Nutrition should be on the top of your budget and the last thing to get cut. Pay a little more now for quality food or pay a whole lot later in medical bills and lost productivity. 

Your goal should be to energize your body and keep it well maintained and performing at its optimum level. In order to accomplish this, it may require altering your habits and regimens and implementing permanent changes in your life.

Here’s a tangible takeaway to get you started on the right track: You wouldn’t pour sand, salt, sugar or other junk into the gas tank of your car, would you? And if you did, you wouldn’t expect the car to run well or last very long, would you? Of course not! So, stop putting junk into the gas tank of your body and wondering why you’re having health problems and not performing at 100 percent. 

Change your mindset about eating. Eat to live, don’t live to eat. Everything that goes into your mouth should be high-octane fuel to power the trillions of cells that make up your body and all of its organs. 

The Best Things to Create Energy for Your Body

What kind of fuel do cells like? Here’s a few examples:

  1. Oxygen – breathe deep and fully; sit up straight or stand tall.
  2. Water – cut the soda, coffee and colored crap out of your diet and consume only high-quality mineral water.
  3. Raw fruits and veggies – fresh, local, organic and raw is best.
  4. Vitamins and supplements – natural, nutrient-dense and highly bio-available (usable by the body). 
  5. Solar-powered vitamin D – get out in the sun for 20 minutes a day in the morning or late afternoon when your shadow is taller than you are. Your skin will naturally produce vitamin D when exposed to the sun in moderation.

For many more healthy recommendations, read my book, “Health and Happiness: an Owner’s Manual for the Mind and Body” – it’s available on Amazon in print, ebook and audiobook. 

And most importantly, don’t forget – EVERYTHING IS ENERGY!
