Ways to feel energised

by Super User

Eating regular meals made up of low-glycaemic foods will ensure a sustained release of energy throughout the day.
Do this by swapping starchy carbohydrates for more vegetables and include protein in all meals.

Also, mild dehydration can leave us feeling tired and lethargic. Avoid caffeinated drinks and alcohol, and aim for 10 glasses of liquid per day which includes herbal teas, too.

Our digestive system is a “warm process,” so work with the body and opt for warm food and drinks over cold, as you’re bound to feel heavy and tired while your digestion works harder.

Exercising first thing in the morning has a fantastic energy boosting effect that can last all day. As soon as you wake up, perform three sets of 10 of this energy boosting routine; squats, lunges and press ups. It only takes five minutes, but it is a sure fire way of increasing blood flow to your entire body, including the brain, to leave you feeling energised.

Sugar lulls your body into a false sense of energy security – you have to consume it regularly to keep energy levels high. Chocolate, biscuits and sweets are the obvious foods to avoid, but you need to watch out for condiments, cereals, yoghurt and dried fruit too.

If you are feeling sluggish, ask yourself if there is an issue you need to address or something you are putting off doing. Whatever it is, do it –once the weight has lifted, energy should return.

To boost your energy levels, set aside a few minutes each day to learn to what your body is telling you. It could be saying: “I need to be nourished properly I’m not getting enough sleep, I need to take part in leisure activities that nurture my soul. Once you know what is needs start doing it.
