It is no secret that our busy schedules keep us running and going all day.
Many times people are feeling less than ready to keep going by the middle of the day. It seems that no amount of sugar and energy drinks can get us through the rest of the day. There must be a better way to get the energy that we need to make it through a day.
Get enough sleep
One of the best things that you can do for your body is to get a good nightâ??s sleep. This means getting a full 6 to 8 hours of sleep a night. It is important that you feel relaxed before going to bed. Some things to ease tension before bed could include taking a warm bath or shower, reading a book, or listening to calming music.
Get plenty of exercise
Another good way to boost your energy is to get plenty of exercise in your routine. Make sure that your exercise is done in the morning. This might mean getting up a little early, but adjust your schedule and go to bed earlier too. You want to try and avoid exercising before bed for two reasons. 1) Exercise can be very stimulating. 2) In order for your work out to be the most effective it can be, your body needs time to get the systems going to create the energy by burning fat and upping your metabolism. Going to sleep, makes your body feel it is time to heal and rest and stops the metabolism process.
Eat a well balanced diet
Many times people are rushed in the morning and feel they do not have time for breakfast. They skip the meal. This really is not good for you. To help keep energy levels optimal throughout the day it is important to eat healthy meals and snacks. You should also consider how our body functions and its needs when eating.
Try to eat a heavier balanced meal in the morning, a light snack mid morning, a salad or lighter meal for lunch, another small snack in the afternoon, and then a light dinner. By starting your day with your heaviest meal you have all day to burn those calories and eating snacks during the day helps to keep your blood sugar leveled out.
Dedicate me time
Every day you should take the time to do something just for yourself. It is important that you do something that makes you feel excited and brings you joy every day. It does not matter if it is dancing in your bedroom to your favorite music or listening to motivational speakers. The point is to make time to do it at least once a day. It goes a long way in making you feel good and that always gives you a little extra energy.
