A: If you want to sleep well at night look first to how you start your day. Do you only have a bagel or piece of toast? Or do you charge your body with energy filled foods in the morning?
All of our Radiant Wonder Energy Formulas activate not only your digestive system, but also your respiratory system. The way to build energy in the body is to support these two systems. The oxygen you breathe gets energy from the food you eat (aka cellular respiration). This creates the fuel you will run on for the whole day.
The ancient herbalists understood the importance of these morning hours. According to Chinese Medical Theory you have between the time you get up and 11 o’clock in the morning to create all the energy you are going to run on for the whole day. Morning is the time to rev up your engine and make sure you have the fuel you need.
You may think, “Well I can skip breakfast and just eat more for lunch and dinner.” Have you ever eaten lunch and finished bursting with energy to conquer the world? Or eaten dinner and been ready to take on more work? Probably not! Obviously you get nutrition from these meals, but the most immediate energy production definitely happens in the morning.
Have you ever noticed if you skip breakfast all together your body asks for food around a certain time?
It’s about 10:30 am. Many people discipline their stomachs and mentally say, “No. It is only an hour and a half before lunch. I don’t want to get fat. I’ll just wait.” However, you will notice that when you finally do get to lunch you are no longer as hungry as you were at 10:30!
This is not an annoying craving or a random occurrence. This is a 911 call from your body, saying, “Hey! Time is almost up. I need a little more protein so I can get you through the day!” So, if you are exhausted all day and then can not sleep at night, there is a direct correlation with how you start the day.
Regardless of how much energy you start your day with, you’re still faced with the same workload. This means, if you don’t have the real fuel you need for the day, you’ll eventually be running on fumes. You’ll be tired all day, because you haven’t fueled your body properly, but your mind and body will be wired from overworking. This is why you can’t settle down to sleep.
There are other factors that can contribute to low energy and no sleep, but this is most likely the biggest contributor. The Radiant Wonder Energy Formulas will help you to regenerate that energy. And giving your body a proper breakfast will give you energy throughout your day, as well as allow you a good night’s sleep.
