Are you the type of person that has a lot of plans and goals but procrastination and lack of energy end up taking the best of you? It is usually not hard to develop ideas and make plans. However, everyday life rapidly breaks through our enthusiastic projects; then there is often a lack of time and energy. And again, we are not able to do all that we want to do. So, to help you have enough energy for all the things you want to accomplish, we’ve put together 10 tips on how you can get more energy and be unstoppable
Find your Fuel
A car needs fuel to be able to drive at full speed – we do too. What is your “fuel”? Are you looking for your own personal energy stations? What gives you energy? Where do you refuel? Make sure to identify the places or things that give you energy. It could be taking a relaxing bath, going to the movies, doing yoga or walking. Whatever it is, make sure to do it often and not until your batteries are completely empty.
Reduce Carb Consumption
While they do provide your body with energy, foods heavy in carbohydrates can leave you feeling sluggish. Stick to whole-grain, low-glycemic carbohydrates that take the body longer to digest and avoid the crash and burn effect. Nuts, legumes, sweet potatoes, oats, and brown rice are all low-glycemic carbohydrates that will provide the body with a steady supply of energy.
Eat Chia Seeds to Boost Energy
These magic little seeds will boost energy levels and provide your body with a lot of nutritional value. The essential fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6) found in chia seeds help regulate glands, fight adrenal fatigue, and combat inflammation, which keeps your body feeling fresh.
Carbonated water with some lime
A refreshing glass of carbonated water with a slice of lime or lemon is a double-powered energy booster. First, since fatigue often signals dehydration, a couple of glasses of H2O can restore your energy. What’s more, the citrusy scent of lemon or lime makes you feel awake and refreshed. Plus, the drink’s iciness gives you a sensory wake-up call.
Chew some gum!
You’ll get a little burst of energy from the invigorating flavor and scent, not to mention the physical act of chewing (it’s hard to chew if you’re asleep).
Stretch it out
Stand in a doorway, facing forward with feet several inches apart, and reach to the sides of the frame. Grab the frame with your fingers, then push your chest forward until you feel a stretch in your torso and back; hold for 30 seconds.
Eat an energizing snack
Look for a healthy bite that combines protein with complex carbohydrates, such as a hard-boiled egg with whole wheat toast, cheese on multi-grain crackers, or an apple with peanut butter. A healthy snack is the best way to get some energy and it also curves those cravings for sugary and high in fat foods.
What’s the only nutrient that has been shown to enhance performance for all but the most demanding endurance activities? It’s not some pricey sports drink. It’s water. If your body is short of fluids, one of the first signs is a feeling of fatigue.
Take care of your body
Only a healthy body can bring full performance. If you want to make the best use of your day you should pay attention to your body. A versatile diet with fresh products will provide your body with the necessary nutrients. Drink enough water and make sure you get enough sleep to boost energy.
Stay in motion
Movement creates new energy. Sports activities strengthen muscles and increase endurance. The moment you start feeling lazy go for a walk or just do some physical activity. You will be amazed at how much fresher and more energetic you feel afterward.
