Fatigue and tiredness are common problems that we face in the modern world but there are some natural energy boosters that can help nip it in the bud.
Consume Coffee Throughout The Day
If you are the type that needs coffee to open your eyes in the morning, you may be driving yourself deeper and deeper into a low-energy rut.
Research from Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and some other institutions finds that frequent low doses of caffeine; same as the amount in a quarter-cup of coffee were more effective than a few larger doses of caffeine in keeping people alert.
Reduce Your Glycemic Load
Foods such as beans, bran cereal, brown rice, whole wheat bread, and nuts have low glycemic load that makes them have less impact on your blood sugar as opposed to foods with high glycemic load—like white rice, spaghetti, potatoes, cornflakes, sugary juices and drinks.
Eating more low-glycemic-load foods will help you keep your blood sugar steady and avoid the lightheadedness and “shakes” associated with blood sugar drops, which usually follow spikes.
Take A 10-minute “thank you” Walk everyday
As you walk, focus your thoughts on what you feel most thankful for. After the walk, make a mental note of how you feel. This technique helps you combine the power of being grateful with the positive effects of walking and exercise.
This floods your brain with happy neurotransmitters and endorphins. It’s a simple yet powerful exercise that helps to energize your mind and body and builds mental and physical muscle.
When Your Thoughts Turn Negative, Picture A Stop Sign
Once you picture a stop sign, you can then either push the thought out of your mind or replace it with a positive one. Negative feelings take a lot of mental energy, and it is best to avoid unnecessary self-criticism criticism.
Stop blaming yourself for past events that you cannot change, and know that you deserve the same level of consideration and mercy as others.
Drink One Or Two Glasses Of Water
Fatigue is often one of the first symptoms of dehydration, and if all you have had all day is coffee and soft drinks, there is a high possibility that you are dehydrated.
Taking a cup or two of icy water should help, as the refreshing coldness will help give you the needed natural energy.
