7 Reasons You Should Consider Green Juice Powders

Everyone is aware of the benefits of the greens and more and more scientific evidence do support this fact.

Many vegans and fitness specialists endorse various greens i.e. both vegetables and the fruits to be consumed in greater quantities if one wants to achieve and maintain superior health.

A new variation has emerged which claims to provide same benefits as the green juices themselves and it is called green juice powders.

Here are some of the reasons you should start using green juice powders

1. Juicing is time-consuming

It is a fact that juicing is time-consuming.

You must first go through the process of buying a juicer and then also keep maintaining it. It is always a pain to find a reliable juicer at affordable prices so most simply avoid them and directly buy green juice powders to get almost same benefits.

Busy professionals who are also health conscious can easily find green juices a better alternative to having healthy drinks anywhere they want.

Though juicing takes away the fiber from the fruits and greens but juice powder come with added nutrients so you always get more benefits.

2. They are easy to use

Most of the green juice powders can be simply mixed with the water or coconut water to drink. You can every carry them in your pocket to drink them anytime.

The ease with which they can be used provides busy persons’ lot of benefits to drinking healthy drinks even on meals.

It is always better to prepare your own green juice for lunch instead of having a soft drink stuffed with sugar and other harmful chemicals.

3. They are low-calorie diets

Green Juice powders are low-calorie diets as most of the calories are dried in the process. Due to this reason, green juice powders are good alternatives for consumption.

Consuming high amounts of best organic green juice powders is to alkalinize the body to claim long term benefits of consuming greens.

It is a fact that during the process of juicing, fiber gets wasted, however, green juice powders, though are low calorie in nature, contain extra nutrients which can balance the deficiency of fiber.

4. Green Juice powders contain additional nutrients

Some green juice powder suppliers top up the juice powders with extra nutrients such as additional green tea powder and extra vitamins to give the required boost.

The addition of nutrients makes the green juice powders more preferred drinks as compared to other processed drinks with no or little nutrients.

Additional nutrients also cover up the deficiencies in green juice powders due to losses during juicing and other processing steps. By adding additional nutrients, green juice suppliers actually provide additional benefits.

5. Best quality powders can be stored in cool and dry places

Green juices often become useless after day or two of juicing.

Green juice powders are great in the sense that they are dehydrated therefore they can easily be stored in cool and dry places.

Due to this reason, they are long lasting offering same health benefits as compared to green juices which may not be used beyond few days.

Green juice powders may also contain some probiotics and enzymes making them more nutrient and a better alternative to many other drinks available in the market.

Though they are convenient and easy to use but ultimately it is your decision to whether consume them or not. If your lifestyle can allow you to opt for green juice powders you must consider them as they offer good health benefits. Do your research in finding perfect green juice powder for you as not all brands are of same quality or prepared with high standards.

5 Steps To Move Out Of Stagnancy In Life

5 Steps To Move Out Of Stagnancy In Life

In the journey of growth, there are times when we grow and excel. We are endlessly driven and hyped up, motivated to get our goals.

Then there are times when we stagnate. We feel uninspired and unmotivated. We keep procrastinating on our plans. More often than not, we get out of a rut, only to get back into another one.

How do you know if you are stagnating? Here are some tell-tale signs:

  • If you have been experiencing chronic procrastination on your goals
  • If you don’t ever feel like doing anything
  • If you keep turning to sleep, eating, games, mindless activities and entertainment for comfort
  • If you know you should be doing something, but yet you keep avoiding it
  • If you have not achieved anything new or significant now relative to 1 month, 2 months or 3 months ago
  • If you have a deep sense of feeling that you are living under your potential

When we face stagnation in life, it’s a sign of deeper issues. Stagnation, just like procrastination, is a symptom of a problem. It’s easy to beat ourselves over it, but this approach is not going to help. Here, I will share 5 steps to help you move out of this stagnation. They won’t magically transform your life in 1 night (such changes are never permanent because the foundations are not built), but they will help you get the momentum going and help you get back on track.

1. Realize You’re Not Alone

Everyone stagnates at some point or another. You are not alone in this and more importantly, it’s normal. In fact, it’s amazing how many of my clients actually face the same predicament, even though all of them come from different walks of life, are of different ages, and have never crossed paths. Realizing you are not alone in this will make it much easier to deal with this period. By trying to “fight it”, you’re only fighting yourself. Accept this situation, acknowledge it, and tell yourself it’s okay. That way, you can then focus on the constructive steps that will really help you.

2. Find What Inspires You

Stagnation comes because there isn’t anything that excites you enough to take action. If you don’t have a habit of setting goals, and instead just leave yourself to daily mundanes, it’s not surprising you are experiencing stagnation. What do you want to do if there are no limitations? If you can have whatever you want, what will it be? The answers to these questions will provide the fuel that will drive you forward.

On the other hand, even if you are an experienced goal setter, there are times when the goals you set in the past lose their appeal now. It’s normal and it happens to me too. Sometimes we lose touch with our goals, since we are in a different emotional state compared to when we first set them. Sometimes our priorities change and we no longer want to work on those goals anymore. However, we don’t consciously realize this, and what happens is we procrastinate on our goals until it compounds into a serious problem. If that’s the case for you, it’s time to relook into your goals. There’s no point in pursuing goals that no longer inspire you. Trash away your old goals (or just put them aside) and ask yourself what you really want now. Then go for them.

3. Give Yourself a Break

When’s the last time you took a real break for yourself? 3 months? 6 months? 1 year? Never? Perhaps it’s time to take a time-out. Prolonged working can cause someone to become disillusioned as they lose sight of who they are and what they want.

Go take some extended leave from work. A few days at bare minimum; a few weeks or months will be great. Some of my ex-colleagues have quit their jobs and took months out to do some self-reflection. Of course, some of us might not have that luxury, so we can stick to a few weeks of leave. Go on a trip elsewhere and get away from your work and your life. Use this chance to get a renewed perspective of life. Think about your life purpose, what you want and what you want to create for your life in the future. These are big questions that require deep thinking over them. It’s not about finding the answers at one go, but about taking the first step to finding the answers.

4. Shake up Your Routines

Being in the same environment, doing the same things over and over again and meeting the same people can make us stagnant. This is especially if the people you spend the most time with are stagnant themselves.

Change things around. Start with simple things, like taking a different route to work and eating something different for breakfast. Have your lunch with different colleagues, colleagues you never talked much with. Work in a different cubicle if your work has free and easy seating. Do something different than your usual for weekday evenings and weekends. Cultivate different habits, like exercising every day, listening to a new series of podcasts every morning to work, reading a book, etc (here’s 6 Proven Ways To Make New Habits Stick). The different contexts will give you different stimulus, which will trigger off different thoughts and actions in you.

When I’m in a state of stagnancy, I’ll get a sense of what’s making me stagnate. Sometimes it’s the environment I’m in, sometimes it’s the people I’ve been hanging out with, sometimes it’s my lifestyle. Most of the times it’s a combination of all these. Changing them up helps to stir myself out of the stagnant mode.

5. Start with a Small Step

Stagnation also comes from being frozen in fear. Maybe you do want this certain goal, but you aren’t taking action. Are you overwhelmed by the amount of work needed? Are you afraid you will make mistakes? Is the perfectionist in you taking over and paralyzing you?

Let go of the belief that it has to be perfect. Such a belief is a bane, not a boon. It’s precisely from being open to mistakes and errors that you move forward. Break down what’s before you into very very small steps, then take those small steps, a little step at a time. I had a client who had been stagnating for a long period because he was afraid of failing. He didn’t want to make another move where he would make a mistake. However, not wanting to make a mistake has led him to do absolutely nothing for 2-3 years. On the other hand, by doing just something, you would already be making progress, whether it’s a mistake or not. Even if you make a supposed “mistake”,  you get feedback to do things differently in the next step. That’s something you would never have known if you never made a move.
