How do you typically feel around 2:30-4:00 pm every day?! Are you how I used to be? Falling asleep at your desk. Crawling into bed for a quick nap. Crrrraaaaving that extra coffee or dose of something sweet just to keep your eyes open? Wondering how the hell you are going to make it through the rest of the day? Ugh. I feel you! I used to be there too. And it was miserable! The struggle is real and it’s something most of my clients experience too. How did we all come to believe this was just a natural part of getting older and juggling a busy life? “Oh it’s because I have kids.” “Oh, it’s because I have a stressful job.” “Oh, it’s just something I have to live with.” NO!
I am here to tell you that this hard core energy crash that halts ALL productivity, makes you feel crazy irritable, and causes you to engage in unhealthy habits you wish you could quit is NOT normal AND is 100% preventable! Did you know that energy crashes, sugar cravings, hangry-ness, and weight you can’t lose are all signs of hormone and/or blood sugar instabilities in your body, aka your blood sugar is stuck in a loop of constantly rising high then falling back down. The key is making your blood sugar more flatline and stable by not doing things to cause those high spikes to begin with! That might sound confusing, but all you need to know is that with just some simple tweaks, you can regain balance and banish these nasty symptoms for good.
You CAN live every day with abundant energy that doesn’t disappear on you when you need it most….aka RIGHT when the kids are getting out of school, RIGHT when you still have an afternoon of meetings to attend, RIGHT when you are supposed to be revving up for the whole second half of your day!
So there ya go! Clearly there are plennnnty more tips and ways to truly manage blood sugar and start creating a healthier lifestyle, but these are a damn good place to start. If you try them, let me know how it goes! And if you are interested in personalized health coaching to do a deeper dive, you know where I live.
