Hello, how are you today? I hope all is well in your world. I'm Lawrence Mitchell, I'm CEO of Raw Energy and CCO of SumoSalad and today is for anybody who's ever felt stuck or felt like they're working on something and they're just not going anywhere It feels like the harder you work, the less you achieve. If that sounds familiar, then here are a few tips that can help you preserve your energy and not waste energy by just keep doing the same thing. I've seen this so many times. So many times, people have just tried to solve problems themselves and really, a simple and quick conversation with someone who knows what they're doing can save you days, weeks even, of worry and anxiety. And all of the energy that that takes up. So, if you're not clear what you're doing and just in
If someone told me a decade ago that I would be pitching myself as a speaker, I'd have laughed! Speaking to large groups of people wasn't for me. But i then I realised that no one would ever hear my message unless I overcame that fear. I decided that I needed to learn and master the practice of speaking, but i needed a message and an audience. In 2008, I was promoted to Marketing Director for RBI. With the role came 100 staff and the requirement to speak to them all as a team every month! It terrified me at first, but because I had the opportunity to speak to an audience of 100 people every month, I got a lot of practice and began to build my confidence. Then I started to offer to speak to audiences at industry events and then came a big opportunity to speak at
Heavy metals like cadmium and lead are all around us - from the pollution given off by cigarettes, cars, industrial pollutants, to the bi-product of the constuction industry, toxic metals are in the air, soil, water, cosmetics, cleaning fluids and the food that we eat. They enter our bodies, and, perhaps because they don't know what else to do with them (lest they cause severe damage like cancer), our bodies store them deep within our bones. There they stay, sometimes for many years, like ticking time bombs waiting to go off. Whilst there in your bones, cadmium leaches out zinc and lead replaces your calcium, both potentially inducing osteoporosis. Fortunately, there are items in our fridge that we can eat that extract these metals from our bones, namely coriander (cilantro), garlic and vitamin C. We also need to ensure that they don't go straight back into our
Spending the day at a conference on nutrition may not be everyone’s best idea of how to spend a Sunday. Particularly, on a hot Sydney summers day when we could have been on the beach! However, being a huge nutrition geek, keen to keep learning, validating and challenging my thinking, and gaining answers to some of the bigger questions to help you make smarter choices around food, it was an opportunity I couldn’t resist! I’m really glad I went. I can go to the beach anytime, but meeting leading doctors like Dr Heleen Roex and Dr Kim Allan Williams isn’t something I get to do every day. What we eat, and drink is a very personal thing. We all have and individual relationship with food and opinions and beliefs about food and drink for all kinds of reasons. Food plays a central role in our lives. We need to eat and
As long as I can remember, I'd always had skin issues. It started when I was about five with red, itchy blotches on my legs, and then spread to my hands and face. My grandmother had suffered from psoriasis her whole life too, so I was just led to assume that this was hereditary, an unlucky card that I was served which meant that I had to apply steroid creams to keep it under control. By the time I was 20, the red patches on my hands looked pretty awful. I remember showing them to a pharmacist in a small chemist on the South Coast of the UK and the evident horror on his face too me back! A friend from university who was into nutrition at the time, suggested that maybe I had an allergy to dairy. Being an open-minded kind of person, I thought i'd give it ago.
