Drink Coffee and Eat Chocolate - Maintaining positivity when times are tough

Drink Coffee and Eat Chocolate - Maintaining positivity when times are tough

Morning Tribe,

Before I start may I say how wonderful you all look today.

Anyway, play the sombre music and I’ll begin. 10 days ago a was unfortunately a victim of a burglary at my home resulting in my car being stolen. As there’s an ongoing investigation I won’t say too much, other than if the thieves could return my Under 11s North Wales Tango champion medal I would be grateful. I really don’t think it carries any real world value. In the following days I also tore my tendon from my elbow. (At least it now matches my right arm.) So it’s been a challenging time especially when Mr Positive now feels like Mr Negative.

There’s lots of things that you can do to lift your mood and cope with stressful times. Morning gratitude and meditation is obviously a staple and if you have found your way into the Limitless Tribe you would have a whole book shelf of mindfulness books. (and one day we may all get round to reading them, hey?).

But what I wanted to share with you before the glorious Bank Holiday weekend was one of my favourite morning rituals to help build and maintain positivity and focus. That being a strong cup of Limitless Life Instant Genius Coffee and dark chocolate (My fav is Montezuma’s 100% Cocoa Chocolate Bar) - This combo gives me a great mental kick start to the day.

Dark chocolate may improve brain function by increasing blood flow. It also contains 40x the antioxidants of blueberries. Cacao is a great source of the 4 happiness neurotransmitters (serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylethylamine). It also has a very high concentration of iron and magnesium for a healthy heart and brain. So you can lift your mood and start the day focused, healthy and happy.

Instant Genius Coffee contains the following ingredients that enhance your mental performance, mood and positivity.

L-Tyrosine: is involved in the making of Epinephrine, Dopamine and Noradrenaline, all neurotransmitters that play a key role in mental alertness and focus. Many studies show that L-Tyrosine is particularly effective at reducing the effects of stress or fatigue on mental performance. Higher levels of dopamine tend to enhance concentration, boost mood, and assist people to feel more sociable. Memory is also improved when experiencing higher dopamine levels.

Acetyl-L-carnitine increases neurotransmitter activity in the brain which helps support Dopamine levels.

Theanine is commonly used to improve mood and lower stress. It increases focus and concentration without any harsh jittery side effects.

Alpha GPC increases levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, the primary neurotransmitter regarding memory and learning. Research has found it to significantly improves brain cognition.

Vitamin B6 plays an important role in optimising neurotransmitters, particularly serotonin which is responsible for ensuring a positive mood.

So if you need a positive kick start to your day try a square of dark chocolate (80% or above) along with a cup of Instant Genius Coffee and see in a week if you don’t feel more mentally alert and positive.

By the way if anyone is offered a Under 11s North Wales Tango champion medal please call crime stoppers or get in touch on Instagram. Unless of course my dancing partner Lorna has fallen on hard times and sold hers of course. The World of Latin dance is not always paved with gold folks.

Never underestimate how much it means to those around you who care for you to see you maintain your sense of humour when they know you’re hurting.

Oh and lift something heavy too, that always works.

Go well - Be Limitless
