Control Your Stress Levels
We know - easier said than done. But many people who suffer from chronic stress actually tend to IGNORE some key natural ways to reduce stress! These include exercising, reducing your caffeine intake, writing a journal, spending time with friends and family, and much more.
Stress hormones and a lack of sleep are two of the most common contributing factors to chronic stress, and these simple tips are a great way to keep it from getting the best of you.
You’ve heard it all your life - don’t smoke. Typically, when you’ve heard it, it’s usually been in the context of the worst consequences, like lung and laryngeal cancer, lung disease, heart disease, and more… But what about how it affects your energy levels?
Many reports and studies over the years have shown that smoking leads to a lower amount of oxygen in the blood, lungs, and brain, leading to fatigue in most users. Many long-term smokers also typically lead inactive lifestyles and are unmotivated. Smoking also dehydrates the body, taking away yet another source of energy.
Only Eat for Energy
Most people believe that the best way to keep your energy up is to eat three large meals with enough sugars and refined carbohydrates to get them through the day. Well, not only does this keep your brain from receiving constant nutrients (and energy) throughout the day, but, if the meals are high in refined carbohydrates, you can experience an energy crash later.
That’s why we recommend eating multiple small meals and snacks throughout the day. If you choose your food carefully and make sure they’re low in carbs and sugars, you should have no problem keeping your energy levels up all day long!
Consider Natural Supplements
If you feel like your lack of energy may come from a nutritional deficiency, a great way to replace these lacking nutrients is with supplements!
