Observe:  Fuel

Observe: Fuel

How do you feel? Seriously, how is your energy level? Are you hungry or thirsty? Do you have aches or areas of interest?

How much do you think about this when you plan for presentation and/or performance?

The fact is that humans require certain things in order to live. Air, Water,and Nutrition being primary among them. Imagine then if you barely think about how well you are breathing, are chronically dehydrated, and just had a donut (or nothing) for breakfast. How well do you think your body responds to that? And importantly for our purposes, how well do you think your voice will respond in the room.

Today, observe how you feel as you move through the day, perhaps noting when you had the most energy and when or if there were any sudden crashes in energy. Observe how you feel after you eat. Was it satisfying, did it feel like fuel? If you are not regulating this well, there is so much help out there about how to eat to fuel your body. I am going to go with Michael Pollan: “Eat (real) food, not too much, mostly plants” and seriously drink more water.
