How can negative thoughts affect my energy levels?

Ms. Ashley Koff, RD
Nutrition & Dietetics
Don't think for a minute that negative thoughts (body image issues, feeling inadequate, health concerns, failures in your relationships, disappointments at work, worries about money and financial strife, struggles with juggling your parents' health and raising your children, etc.) don't play into our energy equation. They will pull down any bit of good energy and sabotage it into a very dark and negative place. That then can bleed into every part of your being -- your relationships with your kids, spouse, friends, job, yourself. Letting these dilemmas simmer in our minds is so worthless, and it gets us nowhere. It also eventually leads us to degrade ourselves. And our bodies hear it, immediately downshifting to preserve precious energy.
