Unstoppable Energy

Winter is over AT LAST! so put a spring in your step with these energy boosting tips!

1. Never skip breakfast. Break the word itself down “to break a fast” and your body can’t drive in full gear if it hasn’t had the fuel.

2. Move daily. If you move more you’ll find that you have more energy. You can go to the walking while the weather is nice! Invest in a Treadmill or a Cross Trainer for when you’re at home. Just keep those legs moving!

3. Eat smaller, more frequent meals. Snack throughout the day, and eat smaller more frequent meals, this way you will experience a steady dose of energy instead of experiencing energy drops. But try not to snack on fatty/sugary junk food.

4. Try a new tact. Spring is the best time to get rid of those bad exercise habits and start new ones. Put the scales away for a while, and focus on how your clothes fit and how you feel in them.

5. Drink lots of water. Dehydration can be the cause of fatigue because it slowly creeps up on you. You should aim to drink around 8 cups a day, if you drink any less you could become sluggish all the time.

6. Exercise in the AM. Sure you’d have to get up slightly earlier, but doing your workout in the morning instead of after work can give you an energy boost that can last all day, so waking up an hour or two earlier doesn’t matter, because you can get that time back at night.

7. Invest in some home fitness equipment. For example you can do a vibration plate workout whilst you watch TV, and may encourage all of the family to get active.

8. Eat lots of berries. Berries that are blue, red or purple are great for you, the colour comes from Anthocyanin which is a powerful antioxidant that boosts energy and all berries contain tons of this!

9. Talk a walk outdoors. Get some fresh air in your lungs with a change of scenery, and a brisk walk can really get your blood going and can work wonders for your moods and motivation. The sun is a signal to your body that it’s not bedtime yet, so you’ll instantly feel more alert and energetic.

10. Get plenty of sleep. Energy starts with a good night’s sleep, adults need an average of 8 to 9 hours to restore and regenerate their minds and bodies.
