5 Natural Energy Boosters
5 Natural Energy Boosters: Wash the fatigue out of your day with these natural ways to revive your energy.
There will be times when you won’t want to get out of bed or have to take a nap. If you can do that and rest your body, great! But often, when we can’t seem to muster the energy to do anything, lying down for a nap isn’t an option.
- Caffeine is still a great way to get an energy boost when you need it.
- While not a great solution for chronic tiredness (which requires an adequate amount of sleep), coffee activates your adrenaline system when the rest of you feel like sleeping.
- The trick is to save that cup of coffee for low-power “emergencies,” like when you need to be alert while driving.
- It is not recommended to drink coffee all day as a kind of energy crutch. Too much coffee, more than three cups a day, can harm your health.
2. Eat those fruits and vegetables
- Fruits and vegetables are a moral source of energy. Eat a salad with at least three different vegetables (Caesar salad is just lettuce with lots of dressing and fattening croutons).
- In a salad, eat some mixed greens, spinach, mushrooms, carrots, and broccoli. You will notice a development in your energy levels throughout the afternoon.
3. Eat whole grains
- Don’t trust bread and baked goods made with processed flour as your primary source of carbohydrates. It’s time to benefit from the energy power of brown rice, whole oats, whole wheat, rye, buckwheat, millet, or quinoa.
- The extra nutrients (not fiber) in whole grains will keep your energy levels high much longer than any carbohydrate from processed wheat flour.
- Those who don’t eat gluten avoid products made entirely from white rice flour; they are slightly better than processed white flour.
4. Drink filtered or spring water
- Water is one of the best natural energy boosters out there. The next time you run out of energy, try this trick: drink a glass of filtered or spring water.
- Your energy levels should immediately improve. Remember to drink throughout the day. Dehydration is a silent but ubiquitous reason for fatigue.
5. Go for a walk
Why go for a walk when you feel tired? Far of today’s fatigue is due to long hours in front of the television, at the computer desk, or in the car.
- Eventually, the body and mind enter a state of drowsiness. Shake things up and go outside.
- However, start walking, and you’ll be amazed at how quickly your tiredness begins to melt away. Do not carry anything heavy and wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
- Here you want to be able to relax, clear your mind, move your body, and release all the tension that has built up in your body.
- Your mind will enjoy the brisk ride as much as your body. Don’t forget that your mind plays a role in how tired your body feels.
