Cleanse your Gut
There are several studies that state that your energy levels and state of health are very closely linked to your gut health. Having a healthy gut can literally boost your immunity and make you feel less tired. Make sure you consume more of probiotic rich foods and limit your consumption of processed food. Reduce your intake of alcohol as much as you can and increase your intake of water to cleanse your gut and improve its overall health.
Ditch & Add
The food that you eat also has a huge impact on your energy levels- the right foods can keep you going, while the wrong ones can give you that short term energy spike.These leave you fatigued soon after. Develop a regular eating pattern and choose more of fresh, organic foods and stick to eating home cooked meals as much as you can. Try to avoid added sugar as much as you can and reduce your alcohol intake.
Get More Sleep
You may be surprised to know that the lack of enough sleep is one of the biggest culprits of many health disorders prevalent today. Make sure you get atleast 7-8 hours of sleep everyday, and focus on improving your sleep quality. Remember that while you sleep, your body literally recharges itself, and a good night’s sleep easily translates to better energy levels. Try some relaxing activities before bedtime. Such as, make sure the temperature in the room is cool and avoid using technology atleast an hour before bedtime to have the best, uninterrupted sleep.
This may sound surprising, but yes, simply keeping up your water intake is a good way to improve your energy levels. A lot of us don’t really pay attention to drinking enough water everyday, which causes us to be dehydrated, which doesn’t just affect our energy levels but also impacts your levels of concentration and your mood. Make a conscious effort to drink more water everyday.
Regular exercise is one of the best ways to feel more active and energetic- instantly! Even if you’re feeling tired and sluggish, force yourself to stretch a bit and go for a short walk- moving can literally boost your energy levels and also release the ‘feel good’ hormones which instantly improve your mood. Make it a point to move and exercise everyday- even if it is for a few minutes- it can really make a huge difference.
