9 Tips to Living Healthier and Having More Energy
I don’t know about you, but besides becoming increasingly anxious over Corona Virus, whilst trying to stay in business and/or keeping a job, it’s fast becoming the new norm to feel exhausted at the end of each day.
So, to combat this, here are 9 ‘must do’ tips that will help you live a healthier life as well as giving you more energy to get thru your challenging days. Sure, many of the following tips are common sense, so if you feel that they are, then just let them be a gentle reminder to you!
Everybody’s sleep needs are slightly different, so regardless of what your body needs, you need to maximise your individual sleep opportunities by making your bedroom as dark as possible and teaching your body to be consistent in your waking up and going to sleep times. The problem that we have these days is that we are surrounded by too many screens that distract us and keep us awake, almost 24/7 if we let them!
Yes, you heard me right, caffeine consumed at least 1 hour after waking can help you have more energy. However, like most things in life, too much of a good thing is also not good for you! In this case, try swapping coffee for a healthy tea alternative like Yerba Mate. Also, try to stop drinking coffee from about lunchtime onwards, as caffeine will also adversely affect your sleep.
Reduce Your Alcohol Intake
This one might be a challenge for many people. In which case, a reduction is better than nothing! Given that alcohol can remain in your body for up to 80 hours, it can severely affect your body’s energy levels and lower your body’s recovery whilst you sleep.
Take B12 Supplements
B12 helps your body create new red blood cells which in turn increases your oxygen intake and raises your general wellbeing and energy levels.
Listen to Your Favourite Music
Given that we are all just vibrating bodies, surrounding yourself with music that gives you good vibrations, does give your body (and your mind) a big energy boost and a heightened sense of wellbeing.
Practice Good Breathing Techniques
There are lots of different breath work techniques that you can try, particularly if you participate in Yoga. Practicing breathing techniques like the Wim Hof breathing technique definitely oxygenates your body, releasing enormous amounts of energy as well as again assisting in your overall body health. The more energy available, the more the body can heal and improve itself.
Get Outside and Enjoy Some Sunshine If You Can
The more sunshine that you get, the more Vitamin D is made by your body. Getting out in the sunshine or taking Vitamin D supplements helps your body fight disease, reduce fatigue, and helps your body grow and heal. Sunshine (Vitamin D) also destroys viruses and in turn helps the body’s resistance to viruses like the Flu and Covid.
The more that you exercise, the more energy that your body will produce, particularly if you exercise in the mornings, as this exercise can set you up for the whole day.
Also, by exercising regularly, your body learns when to create more energy as well as how to use it. The more energy produced, the healthier your body will become.
Drink More Water
This one is a given! As we are all made up of 60-70% water, it goes without saying that if you are low on water intake, the more dehydrated you can become. Dehydration reduces great amounts of energy quickly. Also by having sufficient H2O, helps your body remain healthy as water helps filter out toxins too.
Finally, don’t take my word for it. Be sure to consult your doctor beforehand and create a plan that works for you.
