Week 1: Coaches have many responsibilities nowadays!

Do you sometimes feel like the ‘Energizer Bunny’ when his battery runs low? You might start the day strong but by mid-afternoon, you can’t quite keep going and going?

 

Week 2: As a Coach – Learn to pace Yourself!

If you’re a ‘go-getter’, you probably like to keep going — but don’t risk overtaxing yourself! I learned that the hard way! You can pace yourself and still get things done. For example, instead of burning through all your “battery life” in two hours, spread it out among morning tasks, afternoon and evening coaching activities — with some short rest, snacks or meal in between.

 

Week 3: According to Harvard Medical School: B vitamins

It is true that B vitamins (B1, B2, B6, B12) help the body convert food into the form of energy that cells can burn, but taking more vitamins does not supercharge the cells. That is a myth!

 

Week 4: Fuel up wisely!

Coaches are on ‘the run’ and under daily pressure to get everything accomplished! At times, proper nutrition is neglected. Instead the Starbucks coffee, Cola, and doughnuts’ are substituted. While the sugary roll from the bakery delivers plenty of calories, the body tends to metabolize them faster, and then you can end up with sinking blood sugar and fatigue. You’ll maintain a steadier energy level by eating lean protein and unrefined carbohydrates. Try low-fat yogurt with a sprinkling of nuts, raisins, and honey.
