Do you sometimes feel as if you are running around like a headless chicken just to keep up with everyone and everything?
You can get so caught up with this fast pace world that you end up with flagging energy levels. You want to be ‘full of beans’ and so you might reach out for that bar of chocolate, an energy drink or a Starbuck’s coffee. However, this is only a temporary measure. As soon as you’ve taken your energy booster, you start flagging again, and might have added on a few unnecessary pounds from eating the wrong things.
I have been guilty of this in the past.
However, there are ways to give yourself a natural boost of energy without suffering for it.
Here are 6 ways to naturally give you an energy boost: -
1.Water – Technically not a food but it is very important to raising your energy levels. Often you can be dehydrated and this results in tiredness. Drink lots of water to combat this.
2.Bananas – These are a great pick me up. They contain digested carbohydrates which the body can use for energy and are also fab after a long work out. The body loses a lot of potassium during exercise as a result of sweating. Bananas are rich in potassium and helps to replace what has been lost in exercise.
3.Avoid Crash Food Energy Drinks – These are a big no-no as they are loaded with caffeine and sugar. After you have drunk one of these, it can quickly result in another ‘crash’ and you start craving for another.
4.Cut back on caffeine – It is recognised that Caffeine is a stimulant and too much makes you restless, causes heart palpitations and disturbs your sleep. Not the kind of thing you want for an energy boost.
5.Socialize – Making and meeting up with friends is fun and fills you up with energy.
6.Dark Chocolate – Increases energy by boosting the blood flow to the key areas of the brain for up to 3 hours. The darker the chocolate the better as it contains less sugar.
7.My Favourite - Bee pollen – This has been regularly referred to as a 'Superfood' because it is packed with B vitamins, carbohydrates and amino acids all of which go towards enhancing your stamina. When taken over time, it has been said that Bee Pollen tablets can boost your vitality.
I take these on a regular basis and have noted how it has supported my lifestyle with regards to allergies as well as supporting my need for a natural energy booster.
