How to Access your Energy in 2020

When you compliment someone on their energy, or even notice someone else’s energy, what are you really saying?

You’re alluding to an intangible — a force, a feeling, a figurative quality.

You’re going to keep hearing that word all year — energy — in headlines, in articles, in documentaries, on podcasts. 

That’s because everyone is trying to get at the same point.

Whole30 and Your Gut Flora

Someone in your office is doing “Whole30” this January, and they’re likely telling everyone about it.

And if you haven’t heard anyone talking about it… then it might be you.

If you haven’t heard of it (and you weren’t listening while your coworker explained it), “Whole30” is a month-long exclusionary diet. For 30 days, you cut out soy, dairy, grains, alcohol, legumes, and added sugars. 

So… probably most of what your regular Western diet consists of. The idea is that after 30 days, a participant would slowly start to introduce food groups back into their diet, so that they can see which foods may have been secretly irritating them or causing discomfort. Sort of like the idea behind the FODMAP diet for those with bowel issues.

Are You a Self-Identified “Weeper”? Don’t Stop Now!

Everyone’s metric for a “reasonable” occasion for tears is different, but there is one commonality — if there is a reasonable time to cry, there’s also an unreasonable time. 

You probably have a metric yourself, if you really think about it…

Death of a loved one? Definitely. Let go from your job? Shed a few tears, it’s okay. Going through a breakup? Most of us agree that’s as good a time as any for tears.

Feed Your Gut the Greens It Needs Over the Holidays

Especially for those with digestive issues, feasting during the holidays can be a huge source of discomfort. 

Cookies, gluten, candy, fudge, heavy dishes with red meats and sauces, eggnog, fried latkes, creamy potatoes, cheese plate after cheese plate… 

They’re all pretty much an irritated bowel’s worst nightmare. The last thing you want to experience when you’re packing double your normal activity itinerary into busy days laced with the stress of insistent merriment is an upset tummy and an extra-long retreat to the bathroom.
