Tread Lightly Running

There is an enormous difference between ones weight even though your scale shows the same weight. Why is that? Sometimes you just feel heavy and not at all willing to even step outside whereas sometimes you feel light and you perform at your personal best. Same weight but different feelings. The difference is your energy level. Energy is that stuff that makes everything happen. When something or somebody moves, it’s because energy is being transformed.

Your energy level is roughly a mixture of how much nutrition your body can absorb from your current diet and your current state of mind. Energy is produced in the mitochondria located inside every living cell in your body. You might think that there is one to one relation between your diet and your energy level but there are some other factors in play aswell. Your diet of course plays a big part but what that energy is used for is controlled by your epigenetics.

Epigenetic refers to how cells read your genes, with this quite new discovery we can no longer blame our genes on previous generations,  it’s now our own responsibility. Epigenetic is affected by the external environment (diet, drugs, state of mind etc.). You are the captain of your ship. Are you providing your body with low quality food and have stress as your state of mind, that can or will result in diseases like cancer. On the other hand, if you provide high quality food and have positive and free state of mind, that can result in a fantastic healthy life, full of energy.

We need to think about the big picture, in short, skip crappy food and follow your heart, that’s it! Don’t put your energy into poor use, learn to let go and free your mind. So many people workout regularly with little or no progress. Find your problems and deal with them to get peace of mind. You need to take action.

If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.Henry Ford
