Where's My Energy Gone?!

Ever had days when you just can't drag yourself out of bed? You've lost your lust for life and would just like to curl up in front of the fire and watch movies?

Well, it's not all down to the time of year, although dark mornings and nights really don't help (I have a four year old who jumps on me at 6am so I have no choice but to get up!).

Below is a list of VITALITY ROBBERS, some or all of which you will be exposed to on a regular basis. Read it, think about it and next time you're feeling somewhat below par check the list again .Could it be one or more of these pesky things that are taking away your 'zing'?!

If you can identify the culprits then great, you're in a very strong position to do something about it - so do so as soon as possible.


Medical Drugs

White Sugars

CRAP foods (caffeine/refined/alcohol/processed)


Farming Chemicals

Industrial Chemicals

Chlorinated Water

Finanical Stress

Relationship Stress

Challenged Sex Life

Lack Of Movement

Lack Of Sunshine

Lack Of Mental Stimuli

Eating Incorrectly For Your Metabolic Type

Parasites In Your Gut

Lack Of Decent Sleep.............

.........there are many, many more but these are the most common and the most obvious.

Next time you're suffering with something like a migraine have a think. Have I been exposed to more chemicals than usual (new carpet/dry cleaning/house cleaners etc.), have I eaten CRAP food for days on end, are my sleep patterns all over the place, am I stressed??? Migraines and other such ailments are never a deficiency of pain killers - they are a symptom and therfore there is always a cause it's just a question of finding it.

Today's Tip : (repeated because it's important) Your health is a precious gift - look after it.

I once had a day like that and instead of moping around I just got up and did what I had to do without thinking too hard about what to blame, after that it became easy.
My tip for the day; Less thinking, more doing.

I'm very pleased that you find it so easy just to 'do what you have to do' Lucy, but there are a lot of people who are not in such a fortunate position. This article was written to help THEM.

Well forgive me for saying my bit, I too was offering advice. I am suprised you haven't deleted my comments like usual. I am sure the service will resume in 2009. I am finding the whole "holistic lifestyle will cure your ills" all a bit hard to swallow. It seems to be based mostly on placebos rather than actual evidence and fact. I do support the balanced approach to living too much of most things will have some detremental effect. I just believe that if you spend to much time thinking about cause and effect you have little time to do anything else. So if you over indulge you should get up and get moving, nothing that some water and a decent nights sleep wont help with if you are tired etc etc.
