5 natural ways to boost your energy
Natural energy boosters are the way forward, especially if you’re a regular partygoer. Relying on energy drinks that are full of sugar and other nasties can be detrimental to your health and wellbeing on so many levels.
Of course, other energy boosters that are not quite natural, also have many pitfalls. So, tapping into natural sources of energy not only provides a more nourishing way of keeping yourself going, but will also do wonders long-term.
CHOOSE YOUR CREW WISELY
Our emotional state has a direct impact on our energy levels. With that in mind, ensuring that you’re feeling upbeat and happy is essential. Be mindful that hanging out with people who will uplift you and keep the positive energy flowing is going to be a key asset in boosting your energy.
EAT THE RIGHT FOOD
Avoid sugars and unhealthy fats, which lead to spikes and dips in energy. Your best bet is to consume healthy fats, carbs and proteins that give the body a healthier, and prolonged energy supply. The slower time release of goodness will see you through the night.
Dehydration is one of the main causes of fatigue, so keep the H2O levels up with a regular intake of water. Not only will it keep you energy up, but it will also help to alleviate the effect of any intoxicants, meaning less chance of hangovers. Win-win.
Ok, so you’re on the dance floor having a shuffle, but maybe you’re still feeling sluggish. Stop for a moment, head outside, take some deep breaths of the fresh air and give your body a good shake. Combine that with a few basic stretches of your limbs and you're sure to stimulate your circulation, getting more oxygen into the bloodstream and vital organs.
Being stressed out can have implications for your energy levels. The more stressed you are, the heavier you’ll feel and the more your body and mind struggle with the weight of it all. Get eight hours sleep per night, integrate exercise, and perhaps meditation, into your routine. Anything you can do to relieve stress is going to pay off big time.
