Julie Wright Move 2 Lose

Energy = you + Energy = your home
Do you have any energy, what does energy mean?
Energy is actually stored in your liver and muscle cells and readily available as glycogen. We know this as carbohydrate energy. When carbohydrate energy is needed, glycogen is converted into glucose for use by the muscle cells. Another source of fuel for the body is protein, but is rarely a significant source of fuel.
How many time do we say “I haven’t got the energy to exercise”
You might feel that exercise is the last thing on your mind. But, in fact, regular exercise will make you feel less tired in the long run, so you’ll have more energy. Even a single 15-minute walk can give you an energy boost, and the benefits increase with more frequent physical activity.
In addition to walking, experts say other forms of exercise that help increase “calm energy” are Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, and, sometimes, resistance strength training, particularly when done with slow.
Lifestyle factors can cause low energy levels, such as sleep patterns, exercise, and diet.
What should I eat when I am tired?
Foods for beating fatigue
- Eggs. Whole eggs contain plenty of nutrients.
- Bananas. Bananas are a good source of potassium, fibre, and carbohydrates.
- Almonds. Whole almonds are rich in nutrients such as fats, fibre, and protein.
- Watermelon. Watermelons are a great source of hydration.
- Chia seeds.
Foods That Can Give You More Energy
- Bananas may be one of the best foods for energy.
- Fatty fish like salmon and tuna are good sources of protein, fatty acids, and B vitamins, making them great foods to include in your diet.
- Brown rice is a very nutritious food.
Your Home Energy
I am one of those people that does not swap my energy providers – why because I dont!
But what I do look at is the energy that is used around the house and never more so than the past months being at home all day.
Heating – could you adjust the times or pop on a jumper before you press the “override button” no need to heat the house when you are asleep, adjust your timer to suit your day.
Lightbulbs – Incandescent bulbs and halogen bulbs have the highest wattage, making them less energy-efficient choices. CFL bulbs use fewer watts, but LED bulbs are the real winner in energy efficiency—an 8 or 9-watt LED bulb emits as much light as a 60-watt incandescent bulb.
Timers – It’s getter lighter in the afternoon so if you have automatic lamp timers you may need to change the time they come on and go off, no need to have the lights on when you go to bed.
