🍫So today is World Chocolate Day! 🍫
And the choice we have these days is enormous. Entire supermarket aisles dedicated to the sweet treat so many of us can’t resist.
I have a sweet tooth, so I’ve had my fair share of chocolate days. But today I have been completely sugar free for 236 days! 😇
But don’t feel guilty if you’re eating a Twix on your lunch break. Some people can control their sugar cravings. But a few of us struggle.
Business coaching relies on me bringing energy and positivity to my work. But I definitely used to get that 3pm energy slump. Sound familiar?
Giving up sugar was tough at the beginning. (Is there such a thing as a sugar hangover?!) But after two weeks I lost the cravings and my energy levels lifted.
I tell my clients it’s important to make positive choices in their lives, not just in their working day. Eating well, having a good routine, exercising - all these things boost your mood and get you into the positive mindset you need to be a success at work.
And if you’re hungry, prone to mood swings, and need a chocolate fix to get you through your day then perhaps giving up sugar isn't a bad idea. It worked for me!
So what have you successfully given up? And how hard was it?
