GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - While more people vow to lose weight, exercise more and get organized at the beginning of the year than any other resolutions, only eight percent of people follow through on their resolutions. All of those resolutions involve one common factor – energy. One reason we don’t keep our resolutions may be less of a commitment issue and more of an energy issue. The pros at Neurocore believe the answer isn't 5-Hour Energy or four cups of coffee. They believe the key is to think about two things: How to restore energy levels and how to use that energy. Energy is restored through sleep and used through our brain. What many people have during the beginning of a new year is a sleep issue. Their circadian rhythm is off, and they aren’t sleeping to their full potential so then when their alarm goes off, they aren’t awake to their full potential. This kind of energy issue can be seen in kids, too. As they are starting school again this week after the long break, kids have all this energy at school and they act out, yet they don’t have the energy to do their homework by the time they get home. This misuse of energy is then often times diagnosed as ADHD and they are put on a drug. Neurocore offers an alternative suggestion. They work to help kids and adults regulate their brains and to maximize their rest so they can use energy when needed and not waste it unnecessarily. To find out more, plan to attend one of two lectures with Neurocore and learn how they help tackle these issues at the core. Both are free events!
