Your body is powered by the energy of the sun.
Your body receives energy indirectly from the sun through plants (or through consuming the animals that eat plants). Plants transforms the energy of the sun into glucose to feed themselves which is then consumed by you through the food you eat. Makes you think a bit more about the importance of how you choose to fuel your body hey!
Your energy levels will change throughout the day and are linked to your natural biological rhythms. You may know already of circadian rhythms that assist our body in identifying when it’s time to sleep. You also rhythms for your hormones, alertness, appetite, blood pressure and more. The ancient wisdom of Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine suggests that our systems also have rhythms that allow them to move between active and restful states to ensure proper function.
How can you develop your understanding of your own natural rhythms of energy?
Being in tune with your physiological and psychological states can help you to be more aware of when you need to rest and what energises you. You can start by keeping track of activities and food that increases your energy levels to build awareness of your body and mind and the natural cycles of energy throughout your day.
