7 Simple Ways to Boost your Energy Levels

7 simple ways to boost your energy levels

Everyone is so busy these days and they end up not taking care of themselves. And then what happens? They become miserable, tired, worn out and lacking energy. However, there are a load of ways to prevent this and here I’ll talk about 7 simple ways you can boost your energy levels.

Food

You need a varied diet to get all the necessary vitamins and minerals. Always have a healthy breakfast that contains protein and avoid sugary cereals. At dinner time, half of your plate should be made up of vegetables and salads in a variety of colours. Don’t skip meals and try to stick to healthier options.

Water

We tend to forget to drink enough water throughout the day, especially in the morning. When we wake up we’re dehydrated from the night before so it’s important to get a glass or two in first thing in the morning.

Sleep

Try to stick to a regular sleeping routine. Go to bed at the same time every night and get up at the same time each morning. Factor in how many hours you need to sleep at night – some people need 8 hours, others are fine with 5. Avoid late nights in front of the TV or computer and allow yourself to relax for a while before going to bed.

Exercise

Having a regular exercise routine will help you to keep your body and mind energised and fit. Regular exercise will help you to avoid fatigue and keep your body in tip-top shape! You could also try to get out in the fresh air when you exercise to clear the cobwebs away. However, it’s also important to remember not to over-do it. You don’t want to be putting your body under stress and risking injury.

Not working too much

You might think it’ll impress your boss if you start work earlier and stay late every evening. While you might be able to keep this up for a while it’s not something you can do long-term without getting burnt out. The same can be said if you run your own business. It’s important to switch off from work each day. You need to give yourself a break. Remember you work to live not live to work, although I know I can be guilty of this. However, when you love what you do it is hard to see it as ‘work’

Not taking on too much

Do you say yes to everything asked of you, in work, at home and socially? Learn to say no and not feel bad about it. It’s great that you want to help so many people but at the same time you need to care for yourself. If you juggle a load of activities on top of your job and home life you risk becoming fatigued and worn out. Most of us put ourselves under too much pressure in an effort to be perfect but this does more harm than good.

Not having a negative attitude

When we are pessimistic about everything we become irritated easily and tense. This in turn, makes us feel tired and groggy. Try to look at the positives in life. While this can be difficult at times you should remind yourself of the good things in your life. There is good in every day, a great way to feel more positive is to think of 3 things you are grateful for each day before you go to bed.
