Eating for Energy, Part 5 - Food for the Soul

If you are like many, during this busy season, it is hard to find time to think about yourself, with all the shopping, planning, cooking, and numerous activities involved in caring for others and creating a wonderful holiday experience.  So instead of running on low or empty, find some time to  nourish yourself. 

Increasing self-care is one of the best ways to improve your energy level. When you do things that you are passionate about, it fuels your soul. When you allow yourself to take a break and relax, you feel refreshed and have all the energy to take on the world.

Here are some ideas to nourish you soul:
1. Clean, fresh air
2. Exercise/movement
3. Meaningful relationship
4. Fulfilling career
5. Rest and relaxation
6. Spiritual practice

Create a “nourishment menu” for yourself. When you feel like you need a boost, take the list out and do one of the things that fuels your soul. Some ideas: taking a walk in nature, calling your loved ones, doing yoga or stretching exercises, taking your dog out for a walk, taking a walk with a friend to catch up, or working on a hobby.
