Top Tips for Boosting Energy
1. CHIA SEEDS
Chia has been called “Indian Running Food” and gives an incredibly sustaining surge of energy. Add to your porridge, mix into protein shakes or sprinkle on your vegetables.
2. MORNING EXERCISE
Research shows that by making it a habit to work out in the morning, you can improve low morning energy levels. It can help you start your work day with more energy by activating your body you may be able to stimulate your mind and take that motivation with you to sustain you at non-training tasks.
3. COCONUT OIL
Strange I know but by adding this amazing natural saturated fat to your nutrition regime, you can increase energy levels immensely. Because of the type of fat it is, it actually helps promote energy in the body so when you’re feeling a little lack lustre, try adding a tablespoon to a smoothie, or as I like to use it, in a herbal tea in the morning to fire me up.
4. YERBA MATE TEA
Not a common tea but you can get it from health food stores and it is simply another form of green tea but with even more antioxidants. It can offer a multitude of daily benefits including sustained energy, appetite control, and increased mental clarity. The relatively low caffeine levels make it a great substitute for coffee.
This is such a common cause of fatigue and depleted energy levels but one we often don’t consider. Try small changes such as using a chemical free soap, swapping your drink bottle for a BPA Free one and avoiding plastic packaged foods.
