Do you ever feel sluggish, tired, or struggle to stay alert throughout the day? Add these 5 simple steps into your daily routine to beat that sluggish feeling and boost your energy levels!
1. Eat for energy
Your body uses essential nutrients from food to fuel vital organs including your brain. Aim for fresh, whole foods, which are high in these nutrients and steer clear of refined sugars and processed foods.
Some of our favorite energy-boosting foods include quinoa, bananas, leafy greens, nuts, and dark chocolate.
2. Get moving!
Exercise is an incredible fatigue fighter. It releases epinephrine and norepinephrine which can decrease feelings of stress and help you feel more energized.
If you’re feeling sluggish, take a quick 15-minute walk, perform 10 minutes of yoga, or try stretching to instantly boost your physical and mental energy levels.
3. Hydrate your body
Water is essential for maintaining a healthy body and proper brain function. Dehydration can leave you feeling tired and drained. Aim for at least 2.5 litres a day to reap the benefits of hydration including feeling energized and refreshed.
Contrary to popular belief, research shows caffeinated drinks actually contribute to your daily fluid requirement.
Caffeine increases mental alertness and cognitive function. Take into consideration caffeine is most effective when consumed in moderate amounts and earlier in the day.
Some great sources include coffee and green tea which also have great antioxidant properties.
5. Take a multivitamin
