Tip #1: Try a Technology Sabbatical
Okay, I don’t mean “sabbatical sabbatical”, but leave your phone and laptops at bay when you get up for an hour and before you go to bed for an hour too. The blue light and screen time can wear you out and make you feel tired. Using your phone right after you wake up or before you go to bed also causes a lack of a good night’s sleep, affects your decision-making skills, and effects your attention span. Long periods of screen time are not good for your eyes or your brain either. For those of you who’s work is on screen the majority of the time, taking Setu’s Eye Max is a good idea. Setu’s Eye Max contains lutein, zeaxanthin and bilberry that shield the eyes from blue rays emitting from the screen and also helps with eye cell degeneration and prevents aging of the eyes too. Lutein and Zeaxanthin are eye vitamins that create a protective layer called macular pigment to protect your eyes and bilberry is a short shrub plant that has antioxidant properties that can help your ocular tissue.
Tip #2: Avoid Sugar
Yes, you read correctly – avoid all things sugar. Not only does sugar add the pounds, but it also increases fat storage and sends signals to your brain that you’re hungry, which can lead to overeating —which leads to feeling and lethargic. Sugar also causes you to get instant energy. But what goes up must come down. Our body has an efficient and highly responsive system in place to deal with the sugar spike – you go from feeling on the top of the world to crashing as your blood sugar level plummets back to the ground. This causes you to feel tired and unproductive. Avoid foods with sugar, not only desserts and sweetened foods and drinks but think bread and pasta too. Find alternatives such as jaggery, gluten-free bread and pasta, and natural fruits that are sweet instead of candy and chocolate. Setu’s Sugar Shield helps maintain high sugar levels at bay. This natural formulation is a healthy way to lessen excess circulating glucose and protect the body against oxidative stress. The key ingredients that include ALA, cinnamon zeylancium extract, chromium, and biotin will help control your sugar and assist your body to function more efficiently!
Taking the day off is necessary. When your body works in overdrive, it does not work efficiently. Winding down, reading a book, or doing an activity that you love at some point in the week is great for the body and the mind. Meditation also helps! When your mind is calm, you think better and smarter. This also helps in making better decisions and working effectively.
Tip #4: Limit Dairy
Not only does dairy give you bad breath, but it also wears you down. For those who are lactose intolerant, products with dairy affect mood and energy as well. Those who aren’t, avoiding dairy, as you get older is a good idea as our bodies don’t need it. Steve Taylor, Ph.D. and Co-Director of the Food Allergy Research & Resource Program at the University of Nebraska says “We’re all born with an enzyme that allows us to digest our mother’s milk during infancy, but lots of us lose that enzyme, to some degree, as we age”. Certain dairy products such as yogurt and cheese with live active cultures have bacteria that predigest lactose, and occasionally remove the lactose-laden whey for easier digestibility. Yogurt especially is good for digestion and the cooling of the stomach. Your gastrointestinal tract controls about 70% of your immune system so keeping it healthy is not an option, but a necessity. An unhealthy stomach due to excess of dairy and a poor diet can affect your energy levels and make you very uncomfortable. Setu’s Your Gut is a great supplement to add to your day-to-day life! With our fast-paced lifestyle of eating out and ordering in regularly, Setu’s Your Gut – with 9 strains and 15 Billion CFUs (Colony Forming Units) of naturally fermented probiotics, rich in lactobacilli and bifidobacterial, is the answer to better digestion and a stronger immunity that helps with energy levels!
Always remember to listen to your body. If your body is telling you to slow down, slow down. Skip the night out with your friends, watch an episode of Game of Thrones on Tuesday if you’re too tired to watch it on Monday night, and skip the sugar craving and bite into a date or a banana instead! With no health, there is no wealth. Remember that folks!
