When you feel tired all day, and you need a pick-me-up, coffee can be your go-to aid. But then you will notice that once the caffeine is out of your system that you’re feeling low again. Here’s a better way to improve your energy levels throughout the day, in spite of work deadlines, a hectic family schedule and other demands.
Stay On Your Game
Examine Your Blood Sugar Level
If you have coffee, white sugar, and processed foods, like fries and cheeseburgers, you will find you instantly feel great, but then your energy levels dip soon after that. The latter phase is when your blood sugar level plummets. Boxed and pre-packaged foods are usually full of preservatives and sodium that can slow down your activity rate.
Avoid this rollercoaster ride of energy highs and lows by making balanced food choices that give you consistent energy throughout the day. Have a healthy breakfast, small midmorning snack, good lunch, midafternoon snack, and quality dinner. Focus on healthy fats, dark leafy green vegetables, and lean proteins. Eat fresh foods including in-season fruits that have maximum nutrients when they are ripe.
Make Magnesium Part of Your Day
Many people are deficient in magnesium, which is why they are so often tired. Magnesium is essential for the body as it gives energy to our cells. Foods that are high in magnesium are green veggies. If you see a green vegetable, grab it at the grocery store as it’s dense in magnesium. Additional good sources are fish, bananas, and nuts.
Get Your B Vitamins In
Fight fatigue by upping the amount of B vitamins in your diet. Like magnesium, B vitamins are key to creating energy in the cells. Natural ways to boost your vitamin B levels are to eat green vegetables, as well as eggs and brown rice.
By eating well and exercising regularly, you are more likely to have healthy energy levels that stay high all day.
