I am hearing it more and more these days "I am just so tired", "I am exhausted all the time", "I just can't seem to feel rested". So much in fact people are just considering this their normal.

What is causing your exhaustion you may ask? GIVING YOUR ENERGY AWAY INSTEAD OF GIVING IT WHAT IT NEEDS.
Stop giving away your energy. Stop giving it to nutrient empty food, mindless scrolling and TV watching, alcohol, energy suckers ( people and jobs), chemical toxins and toxic thoughts.
Yes, another toxin related blog. See a common theme here?
When we expose ourselves to toxins through our diet, lifestyle and thoughts what do you think our body is going to constantly be focusing on? It's going to stress trying to breaking those toxins down before they damage your cells of course. Hence where all your energy goes ( This is quite the process).
Our body naturally detoxes everyday but when we live a toxic life everyday making it work harder and harder it just can't keep up.
Once your body gets to a point of not being able to catch up is when the damage to the cells, the power house of our cells ( the mitochondria), our gut health and everything else becomes damaged and inflamed. Inflammation leads to mucous. Mucous leads to everything moving slower. Get the picture?
So to take back control of your energy is to take back control of your life and what you are exposing yourself to. Remove the energy suckers from your life so you can gain more from the things that bring you more joy!
Where could your energy be draining check list?
