Performance Enhancement Coach’s Top Tips to Boost Energy and Focus

We all know that a bad start to the day can set us up for failure for the entire day. So with the days officially getting longer bit by bit now, it’s important to start the day off on the right foot to make sure we have enough positive energy to carry us all the way through the end of the day! No matter what your plans are, there’s things you can do right now to make your day more productive.

Nora Tobin, performance enhancement and executive coach to Fortune 100 companies, nutrition specialist and CEO of Nora’s Naturals Coffee, shares her top tips and tools to set up the day for accelerated energy, sustained focus and maximum elevation. 

Tip  #1: Sleep is not only your friend, but your best friend!
During sleep, cerebral spinal fluid runs through the brain to clear toxins and create new neural connections crucial for retaining information and slowing down aging. This process is called glymphatic drainage. The glymphatic system primarily works during sleep, so in order to successfully create new cerebral pathways and clear waste products, it is essential to get at least 6 hours of sleep.

Tip  #2: Avoid stress like it’s the plague
When the body is under chronic mental or physical stress (not enough sleep for example), the production of cortisol becomes unbalanced. This leads to excessive fatigue, brain fog and the storage of fat in the abdominal region. In order to produce enough cortisol to keep going throughout the day, the body pulls from the thyroid (lowered metabolism). However, there will be moments where you are stressed. For those moments, 1-minute Meditation can help:take an inhale for 3 counts, hold breath at the top for 3 and exhale for 3. Repeat for 1-minute. 

Tip  #3: Throw coffee on your face
But before you dump your favorite starbucks on your face know this. Quality coffee keeps us energized, but also has amazing beauty benefits to keep us elevated throughout the day! Combine coffee grounds with coconut oil and brown sugar. Use it as a scrub in the shower for exfoliation. The coffee grounds will remove dead skin cells, stimulate circulation and minimize the appearance of cellulite. The caffeine can also help to tighten skin. When applied under the eyes, the caffeine reduces puffiness. 

Combining all three of these tips is a great and easy way to set yourself up for an energy filled, sustained focus and highly elevated day!
