Lacking In Energy, Stressed, Fatigued?
Do you feel you spend most your life firefighting problems that continually pop up?
Is your mind stressing over things another person might think are trivial?
Do you continually feel low in yourself?
Has your self-image taken a hammering?
It maybe you are working long hours, have a hectic lifestyle, or are not taking proper care of yourself. Whatever, you now find yourself in a position where you don’t have enough in the tank to really help you work at your optimum level.
It’s bad enough when you have no energy and are fatigued but when that affects your mental state and you find it hard to cope, that really compounds it more.
Recent Stress Study Results
It is interesting to note that in the UK according to the HSE in 2014/15 stress accounted for 35% of all work related ill health cases and 43% of all working days lost due to ill health.
Often to offset this we will seek refuge in stress releasers to help relieve the stress. The problem is we usually seek refuge in negative stress releasers.
Negative Stress Releasers
• Alcohol. Though not a problem in moderation, often when stressed people will seek refuge here, yet in the long run a dependency can develop here which can prove even more detrimental than the original stress.
• Cigarette Smoking. Many people say having a cigarette helps them unwind. This may or may not be true, but one thing for certain is that . Cigarette smoking can have serious negative effects on your health.
• Watching TV. This is something a lot of us do. Yet did you ever feel stressed watch a lot of TV. Then when you finish and switch off the set, the stress is still there with maybe even a little bit extra. Perhaps it’s not really doing it for you either?
A much better idea is to try some positive stress releasers.
Positive Stress Releasers
- Going for a walk and getting out in the fresh air.
- Being in daylight/sunlight. This allows you to fuel up on the very valuable vitamin D which helps ward off the winter blues of SAD.
- Exercise. Particularly a form of exercise you like to do, play football, try golf, tennis, swimming, work out in a gym, etc. Exercise helps release endorphins in the brain. Endorphins also help trigger a positive feeling in the body, an example of this would be, the feeling following a run or workout is sometimes described as “euphoric.” This is often known as “runner’s high.”
- Eat a healthy natural diet. This would mean eating foods in as near as to their natural state as possible. Eating lean cuts of meat, fish, fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, etc.
- Try and cut down on stimulants, tea, coffee, fizzy drinks, sugary food, fast food, etc.
- Do things that give you a “buzz”: go to a music gig, for a nice meal, a football match, a play, etc, things that involve more of your participation.
- Have hobbies you like to do, learn DIY, sewing, gardening, drawing, painting, etc.
These are all things that can have a positive effect on your mental state, and we highly recommend that you see how you can fit them into your life.
When we are at our best everything looks much brighter to us.
There’s nothing quite like waking up in the morning after a refreshing night’s sleep, looking in the mirror and seeing a bright happy you smiling back at yourself.
That feeling of happiness seems to light you up like a bulb. Your smile in the mirror says it all. It feels so good you say out loud “It’s great to be alive”. You wash and dress and go down to the kitchen for your breakfast. You savour that feeling of contentment as you sit back in your comfortable chair and take a mouthful from your delicious cool orange juice. The sweet smell of oranges from the juice is intoxicating. The perfect start to the perfect day. This is the way we all want to be, operating at our best.
However, with some of us we need a spark to get the whole thing moving.
This is where a veritable wonder nutrient that helps work along with the body’s own natural anti stress response can prove invaluable.
This nutrient is often fondly referred to as “The Happy Vitamin” (Vitamin B5) or Pantac.
Not only does it contribute to normal mental performance, it can also help activate your energy and help your nerves and brain communicate effectively. These are vital components of a healthy mind.
It also contributes to normal synthesis and metabolism of steroid hormones, vitamin D and some neurotransmitters, all invaluable elements that help keep us at our best.
Pantac has proved to be a great favourite of health practitioners over the years to help support their energy and mental performance.
While constantly stressing the benefits of living a more natural lifestyle, right eating, right exercise, right means of mental relaxation, hobbies you enjoy, meditation, relaxation, etc.
Not everybody is willing to make these steps, and even if you are taking some or all of these steps, it’s still nice to explore how we can keep ourselves in our best possible state.
Pantac is then something that is well worth considering for both the beginner and more seasoned health enthusiast.
Many of us are products of a hectic lifestyle. We owe it to ourselves to support our best response when faced with challenging situations.
Next time let Pantac be your first port of call when this happens.
Try it for yourself and then maybe you will understand why it has been one of our best sellers for over 30 years.
