Hello my dear lovelies!!! Firstly, Thank you so much everyone for that overwhelming response and love for all my previous blogs 😍.Your Appreciations are what make me to put all those extra efforts and continue to write. And now Jumping onto this week topic ,which gives insights on ” How do we stay Energized all day long!! “. Sounds pretty interesting stuff , isn’t it ? so let’s get deeper and know the secret of staying Energetic for longer than we think. Hearty and Warm Welcome everyone!!
we all might have wondered about what could be reasons behind getting tired easily even by doing very little or sometimes by nothing at all. This is one of the common problem for people of this generation . we often feel restless and tend to procrastinate things for other day and thereby not sticking to the Scheduled plan .
Fatigue or extreme tiredness is a common symptom of several conditions and serious diseases, but in most cases it is caused by simple lifestyle factors.Thus by making few adjustments in our Lifestyle , we can probably suppress tiredness and feel Energized.
So, brace yourself as I am going to share below on how to overcome Fatigue and drive ourselves Energetic all way along .
Soak yourself in Sunlight
Natural light is the strongest factor which controls our circadian rhythms(roughly known as Sleep-Wake Cycle which repeats after every 24 hrs). First, start the day by spending some time out of the house or doing Surya Namaskar in glory Sun. It’s a great way to start the day for many reasons. Melatonin – the hormone which induces sleep – will decrease in response to the sunlight. Getting some sun lets your body know that it’s time to wake up and get going.
Start the Day with Protein
Next, prepare yourself a breakfast that will help keep your energy levels up for longer. In the morning, select foods that are rich in protein, like eggs, yogurt and nuts. Protein and whole grains take longer for your body to break down into energy. This helps prevent a crash later in the morning like that caused by a breakfast full of simple carbohydrates and sugar. Plus, protein boosts your ability to concentrate and be productive. Eating foods full of protein for snacks, and throughout the day, also help keep you feeling rejuventated.
You know your body. There is likely a time of day when you feel more tired. Instead of lying down, you could try getting up and moving at that time of day. A brisk walk outside is the best way to wake your body up and recharge. As an added bonus, exercising in fresh air and sunshine boosts mood-lifting endorphins, the immune system and the metabolism.
Fatigue can be caused by dehydration. So, to feel more active during the day, be sure to drink water. Doctors recommend 8 glasses of water per day. Try keeping a large water bottle on hand as a reminder to stay hydrated and start each meal with a big glass of water. This will give your body what it needs to stay energized at all hours.
Try a Power Nap
Some people find it helpful to take a short 20 to 30-minute nap in the afternoon. It can help you to recharge and be more alert for the rest of the day. It be tempting to sleep for longer, but power-nap proponents say that it may have the opposite effect and leave you feeling more tired than before. Sometimes longer daytime naps can also negatively impact your ability to fall asleep at a decent hour that night.
Get Plenty of Rest
It’s not possible to feel good during the day if you haven’t slept well at night. But getting the recommended 7 to 9 hours of sleep is difficult for some. Good Sleep hygiene can help.
- Try to go to bed and get up at the same time every day.
- Set up a nightly routine which will help you relax naturally at the end of the day. Consider a warm bath, relaxing stretches, meditation and reading a book.
- Avoid electronics and screens for 30 to 60 minutes before bedtime.
- Make your bedroom a sleep-inducing environment; it should be dark and cool.
It’s true that coffee and other caffeinated drinks give you a jolt of energy, but it can also cause you to feel even more tired when it wears off. Caffeine is a stimulant but doesn’t have a long-lasting effect and can create dependency. As your body feels the effect less and less, it will crave more caffeine. Additionally, caffeine tends to increase stress levels, make you feel anxious, cause headaches, contribute to high blood pressure and make it more difficult to relax and fall asleep at nighttime.
Laughter is a Great Energy Boost
Laughter’s a proven stress-buster, but studies suggest laughing can boost energy levels, too. When you laugh, your body increases its oxygen intake and releases endorphins.Among many other positive effects, these two things can provide you with a quick, refreshing boost of energy.
It may not sound so easy when those eyelids are drooping, but making the brain work a little quicker may help the body follow suit! Thinking faster (i.e. reading at a quicker pace, brainstorming in a group, or learning a new concept) made one group of study subjects feel more energized.
Do something interesting
Plan to do the most engaging or interesting task of the day during the sleepiest time of day (typically around 3pm). One study found that being interested in a task makes it significantly easier to stay awake (despite an energy lull).
Additionally , you can also stay active by following healthy habits and quitting the toxic ones.Remember , the world belongs to those who are Energetic .
