Have you ever pulled into the gas station right as the “empty” light pops on your dashboard? It’s a feeling of panic and relief all at the same time. Am I right?
We would never let it happen to our cars, but we let it happen to our bodies all the time; why is that?
Signs Your Body’s Gas Tank is Running on Empty
Before we talk about filling our tank, we need to get a better understanding of what it means to leave our bodies running on empty.
- Signs you might be running on empty:
- Exhaustion or Lack of Energy
- Weight Gain or Bloating
- Low Immune System
- Acne or Other Skin Conditions
So many of these things we use a bandaid for, we drink coffee, feed into our cravings, try detoxes, pop a Motrin, etc.
It still doesn’t help us get to the root of the problem. However, you can only put a bandaid on something for so long before that bandaid stops working.
What To Do About It
Instead of having that crash that inevitably will happen, what if you could tune into your body and know when your tank was starting to get low?
What if you knew what foods would help fill your tank up daily and help avoid that feeling of getting low altogether?
Trust me; I get it.
- There is a busy family to take care of.
- You don’t know how to cook.
- Working out is not your thing.
Sit back and take a big exhale because I’m about to give you some really good news.
Living a healthy lifestyle does not have to be complicated.
You can keep your tank half full (and more) without overhauling your entire lifestyle. All it takes is a little time getting to know the body you live in.
- You can still meet your family’s needs.
- Cooking doesn’t have to be fancy meals.
- Moving your body is whatever you want it to be.
Being healthy can fit into your life, even on the busiest of days.
I challenge you to stop holding yourself back.
Your body deserves more than running on empty all of the time. You deserve to be full of energy and feel confident in your own body.
