5 Foods That Give You Super(wo)man Energy

You might have felt how, depending on the foods you eat, you feel like some days you could conquer the world and others you just want to watch Netflix. And although it might be also related with your stress, the types of food you eat play a big role on your energy levels.

So if you want to become a super productive and energetic, have a look at the 5 foods that will give you superpowers!

Coconut Oil

Unlike other foods with saturated fats, coconut oil contains a unique form of saturated fats that serve as an energy source for the body instead of being stored. These fats also help the fat burning process in the body, so you get 2 for 1!

Chia Seeds

These are the best plant-based source of protein that you will find around. They give you a boost of energy, keep you satiated and you can use them in nearly any recipe: smoothies, salads, cake,… you name it!

Green leafy veggies

You do know where Popeye got his energy from, right? But if spinach isn’t your thing, there is much more to chose from such as kale, broccoli or watercress. They are also high in in vitamins known to prevent cancer, improve the circulation and even ease feelings of depression. What else are you waiting for to add them to your diet?

Fruit

Here you have so many choices it is nearly impossible to not find one or two you enjoy eating. Be aware though that fruits contain big amounts of glucose and having too much of it can create even more fatigue. Try to limit your amount to a few pieces a day without overdoing it and you will be fine.

Green superfood

The own word describes it as ‘super’, it’s pretty obvious that they provide super energy! Spirulina and chlorella are probably the most well known ones and the great thing about them is that you can either mix them in smoothies or have them as a pill.

Who needs coffee when nature gives you the energy you need?

5 Steps To Help You Develop A Personal Mission Statement

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive.”

– Maya Angelou

I love this quote as it personifies the life that I’ve crafted for myself. Maya Angelou certainly lived a full, thriving life and I aspire to do the same. She’s such an inspiration. It’s all about creating the life you want to live, remaining persistent and trusting that everything will work out in due time.

That’s how you thrive! What does a thriving life look like for you?

If you aren’t sure, I’m here to help. I found a really cool article on Livecareer.com that outlines 5 steps toward developing a personal mission statement.

Check them out below!

Step 1: Identify Past Successes.

Spend some time identifying four or five examples where you have had personal success in recent years. These successes could be at work, in your community, at home, etc. Write them down. Try to identify whether there is a common theme — or themes — to these examples. Write them down.

Step 2: Identify Core Values.

Develop a list of attributes that you believe identify who you are and what your priorities are. The list can be as long as you need. Once your list is complete, see if you can narrow your values to five or six most important values. Finally, see if you can choose the one value that is most important to you.

Step 3: Identify Contributions.

Make a list of the ways you could make a difference. In an ideal situation, how could you contribute best to:
• the world in general
• your family
• your employer or future employers
• your friends
• your community •

Step 4: Identify Goals.

Spend some time thinking about your priorities in life and the goals you have for yourself. Make a list of your personal goals, perhaps in the short-term (up to three years) and the long-term (beyond three years).

Step 5: Write Mission Statement.

Based on the first four steps and a better understanding of yourself, begin writing your personal mission statement.

3 Tips For Managing A Busy Schedule

As adults, we wear many hats! We are parents, spouses, professionals, siblings, volunteers and more. Can it be overwhelming at times? Absolutely. However, it’s worth it.

If you need help managing your busy schedule, I’m here to help!

Below are three tips that I recommend implementing within your busy schedule:

1. Make a daily list of 3-5 things you want to get accomplished

Lists can be scary but not if you keep them simple. Instead of listing everything that you want to do, focus your efforts on the top 3-5 things you want to get done. That way, you can direct your full energy to giving your all to each task.

2. Work in time blocks

Schedule your tasks and guestimate how long it will take to complete each task. That way, you can factor in breaks for calls, food, water or bio breaks. All of which are extremely important!

3. Prioritize tasks

Prioritizing your tasks can help you figure out what to tackle first. If you are most productive in the morning, that’s the best time to get the most difficult tasks done. If you aren’t, then you might want to do a “menial” task that doesn’t require much effort.
