What If Energy Was the Goal?

It seems almost all health experts have different opinions. There are certainly a lot of common themes that all the experts agree on like eat more organic green vegetables. No one really denies that is a good idea.

Some will boast of the health benefits of being a vegan while others will sound just as convincing on why we should live on a high protein meat diet.

Many promote the health benefits of vitamins and nutrition while others say it is wasted money and does nothing for your overall health.

This can cause us to just think, “What is the point? I could die tomorrow.”  And therefore, we don’t worry about our health because we aren’t sure if it makes a difference anyway.

There really isn’t anything we can do to guarantee that we live longer. We can try, but we all know our time is limited and we don’t know how long we have.

So what if energy was our goal?

I don’t mean the fake and temporary energy that we get from a Starbucks or Monster energy drink. I mean real, consistent energy throughout the day. What if that was our goal?

Maybe we don’t know if the vitamin regime that we take will add any extra years to our life, but do we have better energy throughout the day when we take it?

Maybe exercising in the morning doesn’t extend my lifespan, but do I feel more alive the rest of the day if I do it?

What if we made energy the goal?  I think it helps us cut through the confusion on what we should do. At least it does for me.

What gives you more energy?
