Why Am I So Sleepy?

Just back from the big 4th of July weekend and about ready to put your head down on the desk and take a nap?  Even this morning in Jazzercise, the exerciser next to me said she was exhausted, and thought she would return all rested and energized.  Well I am feeling very tired myself, so a closer look at why I am so sleepy is in order. I’ve got 3 good reasons, so read on and find out what they are.

Blood Sugar Effects

I remember eating a lot of hot dogs with white buns, chips, ice cream – all high glycemic carbs that enter your bloodstream fast and then crash your blood sugar just as fast.  (Thank goodness I don’t eat like that all the time!) That leads to a groggy crashing feeling and if you eat like that all weekend, you can bet you will feel pretty sleepy.  Did you eat like this over the weekend?

Hormone Effects

Once again, those high glycemic carbs are the culprit again.  They activate your brain to produce serotonin, a chemical that allows for calm and pleasant moods, while making tryptophan, the chemical responsible for sleepiness, more available to your brain. This is another reason high carb meals make you sleepy, says the National Sleep Foundation.  So now you get a double whammy from eating all that junk food.

Overeating Effects

Tell the truth now.  Did you overeat over the holiday?  I know I did.  Because it was there and there weren’t a lot of alternatives and it tasted great!  (that is your carb addiction talking at that point, right?)

Overeating is one of the most common causes of eating-induced sleepiness. After eating, your body routes more blood to your digestive system. Meals excessive in size require even more blood, which causes temporary deprivation of blood and nutrients in your brain and residual grogginess.

So that’s what has been causing me to be sleepy all the time!  And you too?

Here is a solution. 

I’m starting a new program that helps me stop those carb cravings and get back on a track of healthy eating to restore my energy level and stop feeling dragged out all the time.  Want to join me?

Call me right now and I’ll tell you all about it.

Let’s wake up People!!

What does it mean to accept the inevitable? I’ve been pondering this lately as I’m getting older, (not that there’s anything wrong with that), but things are changing that I have no control over. For example I can’t jump around in Jazzercise like I used to. I have to step in place because my knees will bother me if I don’t. I find that I need a little rest time in my day so that I can keep going on into the evening with activities. I find that I’m more assertive than I used to be – yes, I’m a bit mouthy – and don’t really care about the consequences.

In other words things are changing and I actually now understand my mother’s aging process much better since I’m going through some of the things that she used to go through.

Here’s Mom!

Lois Nedden

The bottom line is it’s my job to accept my age changes rather than complain and resist. It’s just the way it is

.
Now I know this isn’t easy and for sure it hasn’t been for me. I remember when I used to run for fitness but after several years it was causing me a lot of back pain. So I had to stop running and just do walking. And of course that caused me to be depressed because I thought I’ll never be as healthy as I want to be from just walking. And yet I have found that walking is a great fitness activity for me now.

So I have accepted that but I will admit that when you’re going through any kind of a change acceptance might not come right away. But if you give it some time and also appreciate the fact that this may be just a normal thing for you then you can finally make peace with it and accept it.

What are you going through right now that is challenging you?

Here are my tips to help you with acceptance of anything that might be changing for you that you are starting to resist.
A – Allow the change to come into being instead of fighting it

C – Communicate your feelings with family or friends so you don’t bottle things up

C – Create new opportunities that will achieve the same benefit you’ve been looking for only do it differently

E – Eliminate negative feelings that arise and focus on how can you shift and move forward with your life

P – Pretend all is as it should be and relax into these changes to allow your body and mind to relax

T – Train yourself to keep moving forward instead of yielding to depression, regret, anger

A – Allow time to accept the changes and let your mind go through the stages of grief and loss

N – Notice when you have shifted into accepting your new reality and celebrate your progress

C – Collaborate with others going through a similar situation and get ideas on how they’re dealing with it

E – Enjoy the process of change as another wonderful thing about being alive

 

And finally, I love this reminder from one of my support groups – “When I got busy I got better”

So I got busy writing this blog and now I feel better!

If you need some support around acceptance, contact me for a quick laser coaching session to give you a boost.

 

Be well.

How to Build Your Anti-Rejection Muscle

Building Emotional Muscle!

Words of Wisdom from Christiane Northrup

No doubt, rejection hurts. No doubt, it cuts to the core! And, no doubt, it builds confidence!
Rejection is like no other emotional hurt. It’s central to our primal need to belong. In hunter-gatherer societies, rejection from our tribe meant life or death, we couldn’t survive alone. In the 21st century, being rejected is an anguish that we either learn to accept and rise above by ultimately becoming stronger or we allow it to hold us back. If we validate the rejection our ‘inner critic’ is off to races to seal the deal.

We all experience rejection. Choice Theory tells us that when we say yes to someone or something, we’re inevitably saying no to something else. In the fast paced, high tech, information inundated highway that we live in, everyone is making choices…this or that? Whether it’s a romantic refusal, a social snub, a business slight, or a family exclusion – the pain associated with rejection has been found in fMRI (Functional MRI) studies to light up the same neuroreceptors in the brain that occur when physical pain is endured. No other emotional pain effects this part of the brain in the same way.

Yet, just as we tear muscle fibers to build muscle, tolerating social rejection with a positive internal narrative builds emotional resiliency and confidence. When we feel it and accept it and honor our disappointment, we are then ready to move forward in our Hero’s Journey. We emerge stronger, more confident and can trust that something even better is on its way. One sure fire way to practice the fear of rejection is to seek it out on purpose. Go out and get as many rejections as possible. Can you drive me to Cleveland this afternoon? NO! Ok, Next. Can you loan me a $100,000 by Friday? NO! OK, Next. Want to join my business? I don’t know, tell me more. Ok…

Join Dr. Christiane Northrup and her sister, Penny Northrup Kirk and learn to go from fear of rejection to…next, and build awe inspiring emotional muscles.

Network or Die!

Did you know that “people need people” and in some cases when people don’t have human contact they can die?  Newborns denied physical contact with other humans can actually die from this lack of contact, even when provided with proper nutrition and shelter.  Older people who lack social contacts may be at increased risk of death if acute symptoms develop, because there is less of a network of confidantes to prompt medical attention.

So how does this relate to my wellness business?  Here’s my take on the importance of networking with others.

There are times when I just don’t want to be around people and want to hole-up at home and not see anyone.  For me that is a sign that my wellness business is losing ground – and could be at “death’s door”.  After all, independent business owners who don’t get out there and meet people,  don’t have any customers.  And then what kind of business would I have?

Working for yourself  is certainly different  than having a job working for a boss and being around lots of people all day.  There are always opportunities to make connections,  be seen and known and create new opportunities.  But when you work for yourself,  it is up to you to make those connections happen.

I’m just giving you a reality check in case you are about to embark on starting a business of your own and want to find out how to grow your business and avoid the “kiss of death” that happens to 50% of new businesses.

NETWORKING rules as a business builder and here’s why:

N – new connections are made with new people who may need your services
E – enjoyment happens when you learn about people’s hopes and dreams
T – trust develops when you connect with people on a regular basis
W – wonderful conversations often lead to friendships
O – opportunities arise to find even more people whom you can serve
R – rewards come from being able to help someone improve their life
K – kindred spirits show up the more people you meet
I – intimate conversations can lead to deeper relationships
N – notice what happens  when you give the gift of listening to another person
G – great things occur when great people get together

So if you are going into business for yourself, networking with people on a regular basis is critical – but pays off with great rewards.  And it is fun “getting to know you”.  James Taylor will tell you all about it!

So go out a meet someone!  If you are struggling with reaching out, connect with me and I’ll give you a complimentary laser coaching session to get you started.

Let’s get connected!

How to get what you want every time you ask.

I know – that doesn’t sound possible.  But how would you like to raise your odds of success?

Have you ever wanted something to happen to improve your life and it just wasn’t happening? No matter how hard you tried?  Maybe you were trying too hard and need to slack off a bit.  Sometimes we block our desires by pushing too hard and then get frustrated thinking “Why aren’t I getting anywhere?  I’m working as hard as I can and getting nowhere.”

Here’s an example.  I was teaching a class for teachers on how to bring positivity into the classroom using the Law of Attraction and suddenly realized that as much as I know about all the ways in the world to attract great things to my life, I still don’t always practice them. This class became a reminder of that so I’d like to share with you 5 tips to help you do less, feel better and attract more.

But first, watch this video and guess why this technique was a great way for me to activate the Law of Attraction and made me more receptive to manifesting what I desire.

So the purpose of the drumming was to make me feel better, happier, more relaxed, more accomplished, less stressed.  And when all those things happen for you, you are more open to receiving whatever you desire.  But how often do we spend the time doing wonderful things for ourselves to achieve this benefit?  In order for Law of Attraction to assist you in bringing you what you desire, you may need to schedule time on your calendar to fit it in to your busy day.

Here are some tips to get you started.
  1. First decide what desire you want to manifest for yourself
  2. Create a Vision Board that represents what your desire looks like and display it where you see it every day
  3. Schedule time every day to focus on your desire in a relaxed state
  4. Practice techniques you enjoy daily that relax you like meditation, yoga, Tai Chi, exercise, listening to relaxing music, etc.
  5. Keep a journal of all the things you start manifesting as proof that it works

Now you will be on your way to Getting What You Want (almost) Everytime You Ask.

I would love to hear your comments about this.  Click on Connect with Carol and tell me all about it!
