Boost your Energy

Boost your Energy

Article supplied by Fusion Health

Are you feeling tired? If you’re leading a busy life with too much work on and not enough rest, you might rely on quick fixes like coffee and sugary snacks to help you get through.

But did you know that these can deplete your energy even more? It might be time to try a longer lasting approach incorporating easy lifestyle tips and adding Chinese herbs to your routine.

Avoid coffee, sugar and energy drinks

Can’t get up and go in the morning without your coffee, or make it through that 3pm energy slump without that sugary snack? Although these quick fixes might leave you feeling energised for a short period of time, they will also often have a rebound effect leaving you with an even bigger energy slump than before you had them.

What is fatigue?

Fatigue is a feeling of being tired or weary, which isn’t remedied with a good night’s sleep.

While long-term stress is one of the main contributing factors, other causes can include:

  • Excessive exercise or physical exertion
  • An unhealthy diet
  • Deprived sleep

Chinese herbs to the rescue!

To help fight your fatigue, Korean ginseng is an excellent place to start. It’s one of the most well-known herbs from Chinese medicine, and is traditionally used to relieve fatigue, promote energy levels, and enhance physical endurance.

If that doesn’t tick all your fatigue fighting boxes, it’s also traditionally taken to help the body to adapt to stress in Chinese medicine.

Bonus, Korean ginseng also supports healthy cognitive function and balances the spirit, according to traditional use in Chinese medicine. Find this energising root in Fusion Energy.

Strengthen your qi

In traditional Chinese Medicine, qi (pronounced ‘chee’) is the energy known as vital life force that flows through your body. Korean ginseng is also traditionally used in TCM to replenish healthy qi, and in turn, support health and wellbeing.

You might have heard of the popular medicinal mushroom, reishi. This woody mushroom is often taken in Chinese medicine to nourish the blood and qi, to provide relief for fatigue. It’s also contained with its herbal cousin Korean ginseng in Fusion Energy.

More fatigue fighting tips

Rest and recharge: Make sure you allow yourself adequate time to rest and recharge if you lead a busy life or are especially stressed. Some ways to wind down in the evening and recharge include doing stretching, yoga, or qigong.

Get plenty of zzzzzs: Once you’ve settled down for the evening, make sure you’re getting at least eight hours of a sleep a night to ensure you’ve got sufficient energy to get through the following day. Having a routine where you go to sleep at the same time every day can help, as can reading or meditating before bed to calm your nervous system to get ready to sleep.

Prioritise a healthy diet: Ensure you eat a balance of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats with plenty of wholegrains, fruits, and vegetables to boost your energy levels and keep them sustained throughout the day.

Exercise, in moderation: It’s important to move your body and get enough physical activity to improve your energy, manage your stress and help with a restful sleep. But be careful not to over-exercise, particularly if you haven’t got enough sleep or are going through a stressful time.

*Always read the label. Follow the directions for use. If symptoms persist, worsen, or change unexpectedly, talk to your health professional.
