Instead of hitting the caffeine to wake you up midday, opt for natural remedies that are free from sugar crashes and lethargy.
Are you finding yourself beaten down by the winter blues? Perhaps you’re in that mid-holiday slump where you feel drained of all energy? If so, fear not! Instead of downing a whole pot of coffee to get you through the day, there are some natural (and easy!) ways to boost energy.
Eat regularly. Many people get fatigued because they starve themselves from morning until noon. Your body needs fuel (a.k.a. food) to function. Choose complex carbs (like whole grains) or healthy produce (bananas) to keep going.
Make a green juice. Drinking fresh vegetable juice eliminates toxins from your body while feeding your cells. Skip the store-bought juices that are loaded with sugar and preservatives. Drinking your veggies helps to give you an energy boost and fight off colds!
Hydrate. Being dehydrated is a common cause for feeling tired throughout the day. Be sure you’re sipping on water so that you’re staying hydrated all day long!
Get better quality sleep. It’s easier said than done, but getting a good night’s sleep will help you from feeling lethargic the next day. Set up a sleep schedule and routine and always de-stress before heading to bed.
Lighten up. There’s a reason darkness and bedtime go hand in hand. Bright light awakens your brain. If you’re working in a dark room, it’s time to open the blinds, let in plenty of natural light and turn on lamps in necessary.
Work out midday. When that mid-afternoon urge to doze rolls around, hit the road running or visit the gym. Studies suggest that workout out can actually increase productivity enough to counteract that time away from the office.
Step outside. Head into the great outdoors, even if some woods aren’t nearby, a green park will do! Just a few minutes outside is enough to feel more alive!
