You are going through your day and suddenly you feel an energy drop. That’s usually around 3PM when our body needs a rest, a nap, a snack, or some other form of recharge.
We all have these moments.
Our bodies are not used to the modern hectic lifestyle, they need a proper care in order to maintain high energy.
But not always you can take a nap at 3PM, and most of the snacks accessible to you are not a very healthy choice.
So here is what you can do!
Here are 7 easy and healthy ways to quickly get your energy back when you start feeling tired in the middle of the day:
1. Eat energy boosting snacks.
Almonds and Peanuts have complex carbohydrates that give you steadier energy boost without the sugar spike crash that simple carbohydrates cause.
2. Do a 15 min exercise.
A 15 min exercise can release endorphins in your body that will leave you feeling uplifted and energized.
3. Eat broccoli and asparagus.
Broccoli and Asparagus contain B vitamins that create enzymes necessary in the energy production process.
4. Drink a glass of fresh water.
When you are dehydrated your heart sends oxygen and nutrients at a much slower rate leaving you fatigued. Having even 1 glass of water when you are feeling tired can rejuvenate your body leaving you feeling refreshed.
5. Breathe a fresh air.
Research has shown that spending time in nature and having a fresh air increases energy in 90% of people.
6. Take a cold shower.
A quick cold shower will give you the abrupt jolt you need leaving you charged with energy.
Having a quick 5 minute mindful meditation will silence the chatter of your mind, boost your mental energy and leave you with a sense of fresh clarity.
