5 natural ways to boost your pre-rave energy
With New Year just around the corner, there’s a necessity to boost your energy for that last big party of the year. The build up to a big night out can often involve a pre-party and all manner of substances, where the music is pumping and everyone is getting hyped for what’s to come.
The chemical accompaniment has the potential to negatively impact your night out, so why not try these natural ways to boost your energy and mood pre-rave instead?…
SPEND TIME OUTDOORS
Being outdoors has many proven benefits, including improved energy levels. You don’t even have to exercise: simply walking outdoors, getting UV rays and Vitamin D from the sun, and breathing the air, works wonders for your physical health.
GET REGULAR EXERCISE
This one may sound counter-productive but exercising gets your circulation in gear and boosts stamina levels. This means you’ll be able to push through to the after afters without much trouble, and without needing any external enhancement.
CUT OUT BOOZE
Cutting down on drinking is a big challenge at Christmas, but it'll pay off when you have a much better NYE celebration and January feels less bleak. Drinking alcohol leads to a lower quality of sleep and it’s a depressant. If you’re going to drink, save it for the big weekend.
SLEEP, SLEEP AND MORE SLEEP
In the lead up to a ravey weekend, make sure you’re getting a good amount of sleep. Eight to nine hours per night should do the trick, and try to squeeze in a 30-40-minute pre-rave disco nap on the night too. You’ll be brimming with energy.
ENERGY BOOSTING FOODS
If you want to boost your energy naturally, you have to be considerate of the fuel you’re consuming. Sweet potatoes, avocados, eggs, fatty fish, lentils and hummus are among the best sources of those all-important healthy fats, carbs and fibre that will give you longer lasting energy.
