How to Gain Energy and Feel Good!
Everyone wants to feel good and have the energy to power through the day without relying on caffeine or sugar. But how can you achieve that every day with just small lifestyle tweaks? Here are our top tips for bursting with energy.
Although it might not make sense to gain energy by expending it, exercise is wonderful for boosting your energy levels and overall wellbeing. Exercising regularly increases your circulation, which boosts the oxygen and nutrients that are carried to your cells.
Exercise also helps maintain a healthy blood sugar level, which keeps your weight at optimal levels while balancing the energy available for your body to use.
Try a mix of gentle cardiovascular exercise like walking and swimming with a weights program and light stretching for best results.
Boost Up The H20
Keeping hydrated is essential for feeling great and having plenty of energy. Water plays a part in almost all body processes, from digesting food to clearing out toxins and carrying nutrients around the body.
Drinking plenty of water can also help you maintain a healthy weight by replacing other unnecessary calorie-dense beverages and snacks.
Aim for at least 1.5L of pure water per day, and increase your intake further if you consume caffeinated drinks or exercise.
Love Your Superfoods
When it comes to getting all of the essential nutrients for energy production and a happy healthy body, you can't go past superfoods for your daily dose of goodness!
By including superfoods such as spirulina, maca, kelp and noni fruit in your daily regime, you will be boosting your intake of vitamins and minerals with minimal effort.
Spirulina is high in almost every nutrient – including protein, iron, calcium, essential fatty acids and a variety of antioxidants. This combination of nutrients reduces inflammation, increases nutrients delivered to the cells, balances the blood sugar and helps maintain a healthy weight.
Maca can help support you with relieving stress and boosting energy, thanks to its high mineral content. It was historically used for endurance and strength, as well as increasing fertility. It has adaptogenic properties, which means it supports your body adapting to stress.
Kelp is one of your best sources of iodine, an essential mineral. Iodine is required for your thyroid hormones to be produced. Thyroid hormones help you to boost your metabolism and energy levels, as well as acting as master hormones and running pretty much every system in the body.
Noni fruit is packed with antioxidants that protect your body from inflammation and damage. This means that your body will be healthier overall and feel more energized on a daily basis. It can also help support your immune system and keep you from catching every cold going around the office.
Eat Your Greens
Getting your greens in means that you get a mega dose of chlorophyll, along with plenty of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Chlorophyll is a super-nutrient in itself, with health benefits including weight loss, detoxification of heavy metals, boosting the immune system, improving digestion and neutralizing bad breath.
When you include green leafy vegetables every day, you'll be feeling fabulous in no time! Struggle to get your salads in daily? Try including a balanced greens complex – you'll experience the benefits of several serves of greens condensed into just a couple of capsules per day.
Stress is a super energy drainer that can leave you feeling flat
and unmotivated. Too much stress depletes the adrenal glands and with it, many
of the essential nutrients such as vitamin C, magnesium and B vitamins. It also
disrupts the sleep process, leaving you exhausted even after 8 hours sleep.
By implementing a stress management program, you will improve your sleep quality, allowing your body to repair and heal fully as you sleep. You will also have more energy boosting vitamins and minerals without stress to deplete them all.
As an added bonus, by managing your stress, you will improve your concentration and brain function, and have less weight stored around your tummy area – this sort of fat is known as cortisol fat, because it is caused by too much of the stress hormone cortisol in the body.
By incorporating these super easy tips, and including a supportive supplement regime, you'll be feeling energetic and fantastic all day long in no time.
