Opening up an interesting point here Bo, something I can expand on with energy drinks and also for anyone else 'addicted' to energy drinks of any kind:
I have been exposed to individuals who play an immense amount of sport, up to two to three hours of constant physical exertion with only a couple of minutes break in between. Upon hearing the conversations over time between the athletes - many do not use energy drinks, but instead eat bananas or drink other healthier options BEFORE training / competing. They've also approached their daily nutrition from natural food sources to preserve the needed energy for their training / competing. The AWARENESS of how natural foods, becoming a lifestyle of course - supports the body over time to strengthen and become more substantial for the excessive physical exertion - is expanding. Energy drinks are more of a 'momentary quick fix'. Even though some of these athletes will indulge in an energy drink - they would only every now and then, depending on how their day progressed, the amount of physical exhaustion they have due to work / responsibilities etc. So, always in moderation.
Here, looking at my immediate real time exposure to athletes in every day life. But, the dimension that's interesting here, that I will also do some recordings on in EQAFE which you can look out for is: how energy drinks provides a "quick fix" in a moment on a mental and physical level - yet, have to face the immediate consequences of indulging in the 'quick fix' when the mental and physical energy suddenly drops. It's fascinating to see how the energy drinks - especially if you are not an athlete or do any training / physical exertion: how the mind and body energy ESCALATES to a pinnacle / threshold point, but then DROPS later, LOWER than the mental and physical energy you had BEFORE you had the energy drink.
So, the dimension I will be opening up in EQAFE recordings is:
1. Showing the relationship to how we strive for the "quick fixes", but face the immediate consequences, cause we oftentimes do not have the patience, discipline and commitment to WALK A PROCESS into and as change inside ourselves, our relationships and our lives.
2. The deeper levels an addiction to energy drinks exposes, the addiction to the emotional /physical experiences of the UPS AND DOWNS the energy drinks can take you on a mind and physical level - to understand this and how to work / walk through it
Thanks for opening up this point
