4 Ways To Get More Energy On Days Where You Feel BLAH

February 4, 2014

1. Get your B’s.
B vitamins that is. They turn our food into energy and power our metabolism. B’s are necessary for production of our neurotransmitters, which regulate mood and conduct messages through the brain.

Here are some foods to find them:
Leafy Greens, Nuts & Seeds, Lean Meats & Fish

2. Think small.
Try eating smaller portions at lunch. This will stoke your metabolism and keep your blood sugar levels from dipping. Try eating half your lunch at 12:30 and the other half at 4pm.

3. Break up with sugar.
It’s depletes our stores of B vitamins and creates that blood sugar spike and then… CRASH. Leaving us worse off than how tired we might have been in the first place.

4. Stay hydrated.
Staying hydrated goes a long way toward sustaining energy level, because even mild dehydration causes your blood to thicken, forcing the heart to work harder, which results in fatigue. Try to drink a 4 cups of water by noon, and at least another 4 cups before you go to bed.
