10 Tips To Help You Have More Energy

Here are 10 simple tips that can help you to increase your energy starting today!

1. Drink up – Feeling tired? You may be dehydrated. One of the first signs is fatigue. Drink at least 12 eight-ounce glasses of water every day (that’s 96 oz.). If you exercise vigorously, you’ll need more.

2. Get enough protein – Many people don’t eat enough meat or don’t eat enough plant based protein.  You should consume some protein at every meal to help keep your energy levels high.

3. Space out your meals – That mid-afternoon slump is probably the result of not eating enough earlier in the day. Spread your calories out throughout the day and you’ll feel better.

4. Hit the mattress – More than half (63%) don’t get the recommended eight hours of sleep. Some people may thrive on five to six hours of sleep, but others feel better with eight or even nine hours of sleep.

5. Set a schedule – Try to go to bed and get up at the same time each day. This will help you to set your “body clock, and help you sleep better.

6. Exercise early – Don’t work out too close to bedtime. It may affect your sleep quality because your metabolism is still running high. Some light stretching or yoga are fine before bed, but perform your higher intensity workouts earlier in the day.

7. Take a siesta – A short nap mid-afternoon can refresh and energize you for the rest of the day. A short nap – 15 to 20 minutes  – should do the trick.

8. Go easy on the alcohol – It tends to interfere with sleep. Plus a hangover will affect your energy levels and your mood the next day.

9. Take your training down a notch – Persistent fatigue can be a sign up over training. Take a few days off to let your body recuperate. Note: This will help only if you are really over training (exercising everyday at very high intensity), if your not please, don’t use this Tip as an excuse to stop exercising.

10. See your doctor – Fatigue can be the result of anemia, a thyroid problem, or other medical issues. Schedule a checkup to rule that out.
