Health – Energizing your body

So I was reading a different article on Entrepreneur.com (to be discussed in another post in the future) when I saw the side link to another article, “How This Showering Trick Can Make You More Energized for the Work Day.”

Here lately I have not been getting the amount of sleep I need to be super alert and energized, and I have been reaching for coffee and caffeinated tea to give me a boost – a LOT lately.

I also read two articles (1/2) of drinking water on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. These two are turning out to be a little bit of an internet exaggeration/hoax, the reason why I say that is because of this debunking, and here, but also I found this article on an Ayurvedic site, semi confirming water consumption in the morning.

So for the last week or so I have been trying to drink one glass or 4-8 ounces (1/10 to 1/4 liter) water every morning. This seem to help with feeling parched, and on some days it made me feel better overall. I will need to increase this to two glasses over time, just to combat my typical American chronic dehydration.

Then seeing the article about the Energizing Shower, I tried this today, and once again, I was surprised, but yes, I felt a little more energized. I really didn’t go THAT cold, but I turned the hot water way down, and I almost wanted to yelp in disgust of the cold water hitting my body.

Did it wake me up? YES!

Did it energize my body? YES, for the first hour or so after I felt very energetic.

Now that I have had lunch, I am dragging again and having more coffee. I think there is a benefit to the shower trick, and I will continue to try to do it every day. Maybe by summer I will have a better feeling as to how effective this technique is.

So, in the not too distant future I will be following up on this post and see how I am doing with this shower technique.

If you’re having trouble figuring out how you will make it through a difficult situation, then just resolve to take it one day at a time. If that doesn’t seen doable, then take it one hour at a time. You are in a stressful phase right now, Moonchild, and you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. Even so, you need to realize that the light is there. You may be standing in the shadows and unable to see the light, but as soon as you get through a lesson the universe is now guiding you through, you will see the light in all its dazzling glory. Meanwhile, persevere.

This is more or less how I live my life, one day or one hour at a time, but I always keep the future in mind.

I hate living my life not preparing in any form or fashion for the future. I don’t prepare for disaster, because no one knows what kind of disasters will come your way, rather  I prepare so I can live in the near future the same way I live in the present. I stock up on some food and supplies, when something is on sale or I break something, I buy one or two extras of whatever I need, that way I have spares on hand, at least for some things, like flashlights, batteries, matches, tinder, etc.

People that purely put their faith into their God, hoping and praying he will provide for them just for believing in him are clueless and don’t know their own faith. You will be judged on your actions, not on your faith. I don’t care what religion you believe in, your actions are what you need to look out for, your God already knows your faith. And it may surprise some readers of my blog that I even went there, as I have stated before that I am not religious, more spiritual than anything.

Anyway, living your life you can really do in many intervals.

For general living and existing, the hour by hour way is best, especially at work, and you might actually live minute by minute to get your work projects done.

Next would be the day by day living, here you plan for the next few days, such as for upcoming doctors appointments and such, as well as planning family meals. You look at your supplies and figure out what you are short of, you may only one can of beans or corn to fix a meal, or maybe you have all the boxed or canned items, and just the need the fresh ones, like meat or fresh vegetables.

But while you are checking your boxed or canned items, you might discover you only have one can of something left. So you get one or two extra cans of the item on your shopping trip.

Next are the longer term preparations.

Weekly, where you look ahead two or three months, you should check to see if you need to order birthday presents online or through a catalog, to take inventory of such things as bottled water, extra propane tanks for your grill, if the spares are empty, you set them out so you see them every day, and when the extra funds are available to fill one or two, you do so.

You also check your garden and wee what all is about to ripen up, and plan meals around your harvest, you check for store sales and stock up on end-of-season items for next year. Maybe some more winter gloves or summer flip-flops while they are on sale.

Finally, for the Monthly, Quarterly, Yearly, and longer term cycles, you set goals, such as increasing your stored food and water reserves from a 3 day supply to a 7 or 30 day supply.

By planning for these increases in supplies you keep on hand, you are reducing your dependence on central authorities, and if you never need the supplies for yourself, you can use them to help others, maybe in your family or your neighborhood. Or, by not having to purchase groceries or propane this month, you can help someone financially or donate to your charity or buy that bigger birthday gift without upsetting your household status quo.
