Our body needs energy. It’s what keeps us going. When we have no energy, we feel tired and burnt out.
But with some everyday habits, you can feel less tired, more alive, and energized.
Here are my everyday energy boosting strategies:
Always eat breakfast
Believe it or not, the first meal of the day is the most important one which provides your body the required fuel to keep you going throughout the day. Never miss breakfast; snack on an energy bar, a banana or apple, or drink a glass of juice, if you’re in a hurry.
Eat smaller meals and more often
Studies have proven that by eating smaller and healthier meals actually give you more energy as opposed to bigger meals which often make you feel tired and sleepy! Try to eat a healthy snack every four hours to maintain your energy levels.
Walk, jog, or cycle at least fifteen minutes everyday. Any kind of physical activity will boost your energy levels. Find time between breaks, classes, before or after work. Plan ahead and establish a schedule for exercising. You’ll notice an immediate difference in energy!
Feed your cells!
If you feel run down and extreme fatigue often or just sometimes, this may be a sure sign that the cells in your body are not receiving enough nutrients. When our body does not get its required dosage of nutrients from our diet, we become exhausted much faster.
High energy foods
Consider adding high energy foods to your diet such as:
- Low-fat cheese
- Poultry, and lean meat
To get an added natural flow of energy, consider taking Hoodia Gordonii. This amazing cactus-looking plant is fast becoming popular around the world. To learn all of its benefits, visit: http://www.hoodia-way.com
Drink a whole glass of organic apple or pure orange juice. These two will provide you with plenty of energy, especially when you are running low!
Drink water on a regular basis. Health experts commonly recommend eight 8-ounce glasses, which equals about 2 liters, or half a gallon a day.
Reduce caffeine consumption!
While you may think drinking coffee throughout the day will help keep you awake and alert, it can also do the opposite. A great way to help maintain your energy levels is to reduce or eliminate caffeine from your diet. Remember: caffeine is a stimulant and will make you jittery.
Vitamins & Minerals
Take supplements of vitamins C, E, and B6. Or, eat foods rich in these vitamins like oranges, almonds, peanuts, and pecans. Take iron as a supplement; it will boost your overall energy.
There you have it. Some everyday habits you can have to help bring those energy levels up so you can take charge of the day!
