Staying Energetic

1. Get some decent sleep.

Captain obvious, but still, studies show that half of Australians are not getting enough sleep – so maybe stating the obvious is not so silly. It is less about the number of hours, but the quality of rest.

Be ready to sleep well by;

  • No coffee 4 hours from bed,

  • No screens 30mins from sleep,

  • Stretch, and relax

 

2. Start the day well

Don’t skip breakfast. I know you hear this a lot, but it’s good advice. A healthy start sets you up for the day and provides an energy boost.

 

3. Eat healthy snacks regularly.

Small, regular energy boosts are a great help. Fruit is an excellent choice, as are nuts and seeds. Try to avoid the high-calorie boosters that tend to cause an energy slump soon afterwards, like chocolate and crisps.

 

4. Drink Up

Did you know if you feel thirsty you are in the first stage of dehydration. A dehydrated body starts to slow down and mind goes blurry. Aim for two litres of WATER a day.

Softdrink doesn't count toward this.

“Meh” you say, as you shrug your shoulders. Is that how you feel at work sometimes?

 

Could be that you are lacking energy and are dragging your feet through the day.
