When you’re at the top of your game — or you’re trying to get there — you’re always on the go. And when you’re on the go, sometimes you give up control. You let the day take you and use being busy as an excuse to skip even the most fundamental basic self care.
I talk to people all the time who go hours on end without eating. Either you don’t make time for it, or you’re skipping meals under the guise of making “healthy” choices when the only options around you are junk. Whatever the reason, you’re not getting fuel in your body, and that’s a problem.
How do you expect your body to keep going and your wheels to keep spinning? You can’t perform at your best when you’re running on fumes. You may think you’re saving time, but what you’re actually doing is breaking down. Top performers plan ahead.
This week’s Coaching Conversation covers how you can take control of planning your food intake to fuel your best work. If you want to keep going strong, you’ve got to keep your fire stoked #8DaysAWeek.
Cheers with water,
P.S. Your body needs fuel. It isn’t optional. Stop fooling yourself – you can’t do your best work or stay energetic and alert without it.
