Our bodies are made of about 70% water (depending on age).
Water is essential for all living species on Earth.
In order to keep proper brain function, good mood and high energy level you should stay hydrated.
You should drink water whenever you are thirsty.
However, sometimes you have to make a conscious decision to drink more, because your body doesn’t tell you always.
For example, if you feel tired and have headaches, dehydration might be a reason, so try drinking more water.
Having enough sleep is important for overall health and can help boost your energy.
You need something between 7 and 8 hours of good, quality sleep.
Some night habits can help you sleep better.
Don’t use your smartphone at least 2 hours before you go to bed, for instance.
That can help you to relax your brain and fall asleep easier.
Read a self-affirmative book or write a journey, it can set you for success and it’s calming for your mind too.
You might think that exercising actually will make you feel even more tired but the truth is that movement actually increases energy level.
The best way to have more energy during the day is to include exercising in your morning routine.
By doing your workout first thing in the morning you make sure that nothing will ruin your exercise schedule.
I suggest Yogalates – Energy flow workout as your morning workout, in order to increase your energy and get into better mood.
Flesh air and movement will increase your energy, which will last for up to two hours.
Also, your mood will be visibly improved even with 10 minutes walk every day.
So, today after lunch, instead of having a nap, go out to brisk walk with your spouse or a best friend.
Green tea contains amino acid known as L-theanine, which helps boost your energy.
This healthy beverage also contains vitamin c, which can help strengthen your immunity.
I personally noticed that it has a huge impact on a weight loss too.
Since it also helps lower a blood pressure, it has so many health benefits that it should be part of your daily routine.
Although all food boosts energy, there are some that help you feel more energised.
For instance, complex carbs and protein will keep your blood sugar stable.
As blood sugar level has a big impact on our mood and energy, that’s the reason you become suddenly exhausted and crave another cup of coffee or chocolate.
The truth is, you should change your diet in order to keep a healthy blood sugar level.
For example, eat more:
Added sugar actually drains your energy.
When your energy is low and you grab a chocolate, that energy boost effect lasts only for about 40-60 minutes.
After that, you feel even worse and you need your sugar ingestion again.
That is the reason you feel addicted to sugar and you can’t stop eating it.
The best way to maintain your blood sugar level is to eat nutritive rich food described in previous paragraph, and that will make you crave less added sugar.
If after starting a balanced diet and eating nutritive-rich food you still feel tired and exhausted, the magnesium deficiency might be your problem.
This mineral is so important and it helps to break down glucose into energy.
Therefore, when the level of magnesium is low it causes an energy drop.
In order to make sure you are getting enough magnesium (300 mg daily for women), add more: almonds, hazelnuts, cashew, dark green vegetables, and whole grains.
Additionally, you can add Magnesium supplement but it is still best to implement a healthy balanced diet and obtain this mineral through food.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Your body, brain and muscles need a food to function properly.
If you don’t fuel them you’ll feel drop in energy and you’ll probably be overeating later during the day.
However, your breakfast doesn’t have to be big but it should be within first hour after waking up.
