Why Managing your Energy Levels is Vital for Healthy Living

If your body were a car, energy would be the fuel.   We all know how well a car performs when it has a full tank and is properly maintained.  Your body is the same.

Hopefully by now, you’ve come to appreciate that sleep, diet, and exercise are key sources of energy and should be non-negotiable priorities for daily living.  The more energy you have, the more you can enjoy the best that life has to offer.   That said, the best way to maintain optimum energy levels for your body is to focus on removing unproductive influences and inefficient lifestyle habits from your day-to-day routine.

“You are who you surround yourself with. Go out of your way to spend time with people who will inspire and empower you.” (from left) Jason Jani, Mike Walter, Matt Radicelli, Jim Cerone, Jeffrey Gitomer, Marcello Pedalino, Beau Kramer, & Adrian Cavlan

Keep Good Company:   If you’ve never heard the expression, “You are who you surround yourself with,” then this one point alone can have a major impact on your life if you choose to heed the advice.   If you’ve been hanging around with people who go to bed late but need to get up early and wonder why you’re always feeling tired, you have your answer.   If you’ve been hanging around people who would rather stay inside on a nice day and watch tv instead of going outside for a hike and you’re wondering why you’re out of breath when you walk up a flight of stairs, you have your answer.   Go out of your way to spend time with people who will inspire and empower you. It will feel like you are topping off your tank every time you see them. Then, make the conscious decision to spend less time with those who are siphoning gas right before your eyes.

Look Up:  Don’t be one of those people you see on youtube who walk right into a lamp post (or worse) because you are staring down at your facebook feed or checking your friend’s mindless snapchat videos.  Don’t be one of those people who are wasting precious time and energy trying to debate someone they barely know who is online just to see if anyone will take the bait and engage them.  Thumbing through various social feeds is like a vicious hamster wheel  of trying to keep up with what everyone else is doing or saying (which is impossible) and it’s usually a complete waste of time to debate someone when logic and respectful opinion exchanges are removed from the discussion.   There’s nothing wrong with staying in touch with family and friends, enjoying a silly cat video if you need a laugh, or following a cause you support, but like most everything in life, moderation is key.  The same rule applies for watching tv.  There’s nothing wrong with catching the big game or checking out a cool documentary once in a while, but don’t complain about not having enough time in the day to get stuff done if you are binge watching your favorite shows on Netflix for hours on end.    Put all that wasted energy into more proactive campaigns that will deliver measurable results-  like your family, your health, and your career.

“If you have kids, remember that dependability, reliability, and predictability are essential for proper developmental growth. If you set the example of being organized and on top of your game, their extremely impressionable little eyes will soon follow suit.” (The Pedalino Family on their annual retreat to Costa Rica. Marcello with his wife, Dr. Jill Garripoli Pedalino & daughter, Isabella.

Plan Ahead:  Being prepared saves time.  When you save time you don’t have to rush around as much and therefore you reduce stress.  Lower stress levels mean more energy and a greater ability to focus on and  deal with all of the inevitable curve balls life will throw you at any given moment.  Start at night by prepping tomorrow’s lunch so all you have to do is grab it from the fridge and go when you leave the house.  Reconfirm all next day appointments to avoid driving out of your way and being the only person to show up.

If you have kids, remember that dependability, reliability, and predictability are essential for proper developmental growth.  If you set the example of being organized and on top of your game, their extremely impressionable little eyes will soon follow suit.  Obviously, the alternative example is not the one you want to set.

If you are in a relationship, your partner deserves the best companion possible.  If you are a sloppy planner and don’t conserve your energy when the opportunity presents itself, your tank will be empty by the time you get home from work.  If you only have enough energy to keep your eyes open long enough to check out a little Jimmy Fallon before going to sleep, the risk of your partner eventually disengaging from the lack of intimacy rises exponentially.  By the way, The Tonight Show always posts the best clip from their show the following morning on Youtube.  In under five minutes, you can smile and enjoy a healthy endorphin release without having to sit through an entire show and sacrificing a good night’s sleep.  This is a great way to effectively utilize social media and better manage your energy levels.

Ralph Waldo Emerson was right on point when he said, “The World Belongs to the Energetic.”  But as you can see,  it goes much deeper than that.  So reevaluate your circle of influence, reprioritize the amount of screen time, and get organized. Just because you are using energy, it doesn’t mean you are using it wisely.  With a few small life tweaks and a little more discipline, you can enjoy a healthier existence and all the benefits that come with it.

10 Safety Tips for Joggers: Marcello Pedalino on The Wall Street Journal’s Lunch Break with Tanya Rivero

Consider these 10 safety tips from lifestyle consultant and author of Celebrate Life, Marcello Pedalino, before your next jog or outdoor workout;

1) Run with a friend or a group: There is strength in numbers.

2) Take your ear buds out: Being completely aware of your surroundings is vital.

3) Carry your phone: If you get lost, feel uncomfortable in a location, or suffer an injury, you’ll want to be able to make a call asap.

4) Be unpredictable: Try to alter your route and workout time periodically.

5) Bring your dog: If it’s a sizable dog, it can help protect you or intimidate an unwelcome stranger.

6) Be visible: Wear a reflective vest and a headlamp if you are riding before dawn or at dusk.

7) Know the law: Runners, joggers, and walkers travel against traffic. Cyclists travel with traffic.

8) Be punctual: Let a friend or family member know when to expect you back home.

9) Choose your location carefully: Avoid desolate areas with low visibility, especially when alone.

10) Be prepared: Runner’s pepper spray can give you a fighting chance in a worst case scenario.
