We always hear complains about our friends getting tired just when they were going through only half a day. Is it really true that getting natural, free flowing energy that’s constantly there all day really difficult? People are relying more and more on energy drinks and chocolate bars without thinking twice about the dangers they can bring. Perhaps now, with these natural tips on keeping your body energetic all day, you can get rid of those energy bars.
Soak in some sun
The benefits of sunlight are often times not being given enough attention; too many of us feel that the hot sun can only bring dangers to us. Sunlight increases the oxygen content in human blood and also enhances the body’s capacity to deliver oxygen to the tissues, which is what your body does when you’re exercising! The sun has a good effect on your stamina and fitness.
Get up right away when your alarm clock goes off
This is usually the first struggle of the day- and quite possibly, the hardest. Resist the urge to stay in bed to continue your sleep and immediately get up when you’ve opened your eyes. The longer you stay in bed, the more tired and sleepy you will feel.
Before you even get out of bed, flex and point your foot to activate your feet muscles, this can immediately wake your body and get you ready to spring out of bed. After getting out bed, do some stretches and walk a few steps before continuing your daily ritual and you would feel fresh to start your day.
Add coconut oil to your meals. The triglycerides in coconut oil are a source of energy that can supply energy to your body even faster than caffeine. If you cannot afford the time to add coconut oil to your cooking, simply replace your favourite snack with something that contains coconut ingredients in them.
Proteins for breakfast
Eating food that is rich in protein can help you go a long way for a day. This kind of food is best eaten during breakfast as the protein can help to rev up your body and provide the energy needed to start your day.
Sleep in early
Sleep 45 minutes earlier than your usual bedtime on Monday to Friday. During weekends, you can add a few more hours to your bedtime. This is to ensure you get plenty of rest from day to day.
Keep yourself dehydrated
Drink plenty of fresh water. Drink water until you feel like you cannot drink any more, water is a major part of our body and any activity that requires physical stamina feels better when you’re hydrated. Besides, water doesn’t only make you feel better physically; it can increase your concentration and even improve short-term memories.
With these seven tips, you can now enjoy your day with the best performance! Let’s go!
