It’s 2018 and the amount of free time we possess is becoming smaller and smaller. We’re expending incredible amounts of energy and our hectic lifestyles can prevent us from being able to fully rest and recuperate. When you head to the supermarket it is common to see bars and drinks promising energy boosting properties. However, these products don’t carry lasting energy and are generally not backed by scientific research. Here are some ways you can naturally increase your energy levels every day.
Exercising causes your body to release epinephrine and norepinephrine, stress hormones that in modest amounts can make you feel energized. We spoke in our previous blog about the importance of movement throughout the day. We totally understand how difficult it can be to maintain an active lifestyle when it feels like work is all-encompassing. Some tips to make putting this into action a little bit more easily is to wear comfortable clothes to work, take the stairs instead of the crowded elevator and to skip the bus ride home for a walk!
2). Eating habits
It has been proven that eating around 6 small meals can be far more efficient than eating 3 big meals every day. Your brain needs a strong and steady supply of nutrients and spacing out meals in this way can be very effective. It is also to eat food that contains quality ingredients such as the products found on kurandawholefoods.com.au. In fact, our new protein bites and Lil' goodies are the perfect snacks between meals when you need that extra boost.
3). Stress Levels
One of the main reasons for feeling overwhelmed can be high-stress levels. Some ways to help manage this situation may be to prioritise the activities you need to do in the immediate future. This can help lighten the load and remove the biggest burdens from your mind. Alternatively, talking with friends, joining support groups, seeing a therapist or relaxation methods such as yoga can be great ways to feel more energetic each day and lower those stress levels
