I usually eat pretty healthy.
But lately I’ve been letting myself slip.
During the chaos of moving I found myself eating fast food and sugary snacks just because I didn’t have time to sit down and eat a real meal.
It was just a little junk food here and there at first…
Next thing I know I’m eating junk every day.
And here’s the surprising thing I noticed.
During the next few weeks my productivity plummeted.
I was all settled in here at the new place but I was getting very little work done compared to my old schedule.
I started getting mind fog.
I had less energy.
And I was sleeping WAY more. Like 9 to 11 hours a night instead of 7 or 8.
Somehow, during all the upheaval of moving my home and business, I allowed this old habit of eating garbage to sneak back into my life.
And I was paying for it in more ways than one.
Sure… there are all the other health problems that come from eating lots of sugar and refined carbs…
- getting fat
- lowered immune function
- heart disease
But those take a long time to happen, so we don’t really think about them until it’s too late.
The more immediate and more insidious symptom I’ve discovered is simply this…
Eating garbage makes you feel like garbage.
And if you let it become a habit, you don’t even notice it’s happening because you’ve forgotten what it feels like to not feel that way.
Eventually it feels normal to always sleep too much…
…wake up feeling tired…
…slogging through your day just barely getting things done…
…only to pass out on the couch for another night of barely restful sleep.
Luckily I’ve been running at peak performance long enough to notice this happening to me before it became a downward spiral of feeling like crap, then eating comfort foods only to feel even worse…
I already had the best tool for getting back on track at my disposal: Speedzen’s Healthy Eating Habits 2.0 subliminal.
I just listened to this session non-stop for a couple days, tossed out all the junk that had found its way into my fridge and pantry, and…
Less than a week later I’m feeling great again, sleeping less, and running at 100% productivity during the day.
All because I cleaned up my diet.
