Key Behaviors
There are several key elements in building effective energy-management rituals but none so important as specificity of timing and the precision of behavior during the thirty-to-sixty day acquisition period. Our lives are so busy at times that we often feel we just don’t have time to connect with the ones that are most important to us. In reality it is that we don’t commit to time with our loved ones because many times we are just too distracted by things that really aren’t very important. One of the most effective rituals for energy-management is exercise. We annually make the commitment to exercise, and for whatever reason it falls by the wayside as soon as the demands of everyday life crowd it out again. It really is more a matter of commitment than it is about being busy. We have the time we need we just don’t allocate the time and stay committed to it no matter what. Whatever the key behavior change you feel you need to make, make the commitment and defend it no matter what. The changes you desire are obtainable if you are prepared to commit fully to it. Start by committing to yourself with daily exercise.

Nutrition Tip: The Timing of When You Eat
When you eat can have just as much impact as what you eat when it comes to your nutrition. Eat smart to start the day out is a core strategy, breakfast determines your energy for the day. A snack midmorning will take the hunger off so you can eat a sensible lunch. Midafternoon snack to make sure you have good focus at the end of the day. Eat light at night to keep the calories out of your stomach, so you body can burn them from your reserves while you sleep. If you go to bed satisfied you body will be digesting food during the night instead of burn off your excess fat. Wake up hungry in the morning and you are on your way to weight loss. It’s not that complicated. Eat a big breakfast, healthy snacks between meals, moderate lunch, and light dinner.
