Do you struggle to get out of bed, feel constantly drained and rely on pick-me-ups such as protein bars, coffee and sugary treats to get you through the day? If so, you’re far from alone. Here are the Top 10 Tips To Feel More Energetic throughout the day.
1. Rule Out Existing Health Problems
Fatigue is a common symptom of many illnesses, including diabetes, heart disease, and thyroid disease. If you are constantly tired, the first step is to talk to your doctor to rule out any possible existing health problems which could be causing it. Many medications can also contribute to fatigue. These include blood pressure medicines, antihistamines, diuretics, and other drugs. If you begin to experience fatigue after starting a new medication, tell your doctor so you can find something more suitable to you.
2. Key Nutrients
We all have increasingly busy lives, so it’s essential to provide the body with enough vitamins and key nutrients to get through the day. Iron – Many people have low enough iron levels to be anaemic but a blood test will pick up any iron problems you may have. Regardless of your iron levels, it’s a good idea to include plenty of iron-rich foods in your diet such as dried fruit and dark green vegetables like Spinach. B-vitamins – B vitamins are particularly vital as they’re required by the body to convert the food you eat into energy. They are most commonly found in grains such as brown rice, barley and oats, as well as lean proteins such as oily fish and turkey. Protein – Avoiding protein will leave you exhausted, as it’s a vital energy giver. Protein provides slow burning energy, so it’s great for fighting fatigue for the whole day. Good protein sources are meat, fish, cheese, tofu, beans, lentils, yogurt, nuts and seeds.
3. Physical Activity
It might be the last thing you feel like, but avoiding exercise because you’re tired actually makes you feel worse. Exercise has consistently been linked to improved vigour and overall quality of life. This is because regular exercise makes your heart and lungs work more efficiently, delivering oxygen and vital nutrients around the body. That’s the equivalent of improving the fuel efficiency of a car. It gives you more energy for any kind of activity.
4. Yoga & Meditation
Although almost any exercise is good, yoga and other meditative exercises may be especially effective for boosting energy. After just six weeks of once-a-week yoga classes, volunteers in a British study reported improvements in clear-mindedness, energy, and confidence. It’s never too late to try, either. Many elderly people who struggle with chronic fatigue turn to these gentle and light exercises and stretching routines. Use this, combined with controlled abdominal breathing and you will feel more alert than ever once your body adjusts.
5. Drink Plenty Of Water
Dehydration zaps energy and impairs physical performance. It has also been shown to decrease alertness and concentration. The easiest way to tell if you’re drinking enough water or not is to check the colour of your urine. Urine should be pale yellow or straw coloured when you are hydrated enough. If it’s darker than that, you need to drink more water. Losing as little as 2% of your body’s normal water content can take its toll on your energy levels, so make sure you’re constantly sipping on a cup of water. If you find water too boring by itself, add mint, basil, lemon or cucumber to liven up the flavor.
