5 Tips to Boost Your Energy

5 Tips to Boost Your Energy

Have you ever heard the term TATT? It stands for “Tired All The Time” and is now such a common complaint that doctors use the acronym on a daily basis. It’s no secret that as our world speeds up and life becomes busier and more stressful, more and more people suffer with fatigue. The great news is that unless there is an underlying medical condition, there are ways to combat low energy and beat that afternoon slump with a few key changes to your lifestyle.

If you’re struggling to get out of bed, can’t concentrate at work or find it hard to get through a day without copious amounts of coffee, it might be time to look at your daily routine and ask yourself: What does my diet look like? Am I moving my body regularly? Am I stressed out and anxious all the time? And most importantly, how is my sleep?

Take a look at our Top 5 ways to fight the fatigue and boost your energy levels!

Fuel your body

It can be tempting to reach for a sugary snack or carbohydrate loaded meal to instantly feel energised but in the long term, your blood sugar spikes quickly and crashes rapidly which can leave you feeling sluggish and lethargic. Eating meals which are high in protein and fibre will keep you sustained for longer periods of time as it takes your body longer to break down the nutrients. Make sure you include energy producing nutrients in your meals such as B Vitamins, Magnesium, Iron, Zinc and Vitamin C which are all found in vegetables, nuts, seeds, meat, and fish.

Increase your Activity

If you work an office job and are sedentary for most of your day, it’s important to get up and get moving! A brisk 10-minute walk will get the blood pumping around your body and increase your heart rate – it’s the perfect way to feel energised instantly and naturally. Equally, don’t over exercise either. If you’re pushing yourself hard at the gym or sports training, be careful not to stress your body further with rigorous demands.

Practice Mindfulness

The stress hormone Cortisol can be good for you in the right amounts. It helps you deal with the stresses of daily life such as work, kids, traffic and more but if it’s constantly produced in your body due to an overly stressed-out lifestyle, it can have detrimental effects on your energy, cognitive function, and your mood. If you can take time out to meditate, attend a yoga class or simply practice mindfulness in your own time, the rewards will be endless. Remember, whatever relaxes you will increase your energy levels and improve your general wellbeing.

Don’t forget to Sleep

It may seem obvious that for more energy, you should sleep more. Studies have shown that 7-9 hours per night is the ideal amount of sleep for an adult. Limiting your screen usage before bed or cutting it out completely, will help your brain switch off easier and you’ll experience a deeper, more restful sleep. Limiting caffeine before bed, having a warm shower or bath, and going to bed at the same time every night are some simple ways to enjoy better sleep.

Time to Supplement

If you’ve addressed your diet and exercise but still feel like you’re running on empty and need a little extra boost, it might be time to consider a supplement. Caruso’s Get Up and Go is a potent energy enhancing supplement which contains the stimulant-free nootropic extract enXtra™ plus Green Tea extract and B Vitamins to help improve cognitive function and maintain energy production. The good news is that one tablet of Caruso’s Get Up & Go contains only 4.17mg of caffeine compared to over 95mg in a standard coffee.

 

 

If you find that your fatigue is not helped by utilising all the steps above, you should visit your GP to rule out any underlying medical problems.

*Vitamins and minerals can only be of assistance if dietary intake is inadequate. If symptoms persist, talk to your health professional.
