Ways to increase your energy levels

Feeling tired all the time? Turns out exercising regularly might just be the answer you've been looking for! Especially when it comes to cardio vascular exercise - get walking, don't sleep walk! Gardening is also an activity that some people find energizing so why not try it too? All in all, exercising regularly can help increase your energy levels immensely and make sure you're never dragging around like a zombie again.


Foods that make you tired

If you've ever been in a situation where you feel tired after eating, there may be certain foods to blame. Many high-carbohydrate, low-nutrient energy-dense snacks like crisps and cookies contribute to feeling sluggish and unmotivated after eating. Eating too much sugar can also cause lethargy due to the frequent spikes followed by drops in blood sugar levels. On the flip side, consuming complex carbs like whole wheat bread can provide short-term energy but lead to a crash later if those calories are not put to use or are consumed with little protein or fat. So next time your stomach starts rumbling for an afternoon snack, it might be wise to reach for something low carb with ample protein and fat instead!


Tips for getting a good night's sleep

Getting a good night's sleep is an invaluable part of everyone's day and feeling energized during the following day can depend on it. A few tips to set yourself up for success? Make sure you have a consistent sleep schedule, even on weekends if possible. Shut down all digital devices, screens and noise. Create a cozy atmosphere by investing in blackout curtains and some soft linens to settle into each night. Finally, maintain relax before bed by incorporating things like yoga, taking hot baths or drinking warm herbal tea for calming effects that help promote easier slumber. With these tips in hand, get ready for great nights of restful sleep!


Anemia, thyroid or just not enough sleep

If you're feeling tired, it could be due to anemia, thyroid issues, or simply not getting enough sleep. Of course there are many reasons why one may feel exhausted and the underlying cause can be tough to figure out. Regardless what's behind feeling tired all the time, it's important to get yourself checked out by a doctor – don't wait until you're as worn out as a 5 year-old racecar! It also can't hurt to make sure you're getting a good night's rest along with healthy eating and exercise habits. With that combination of tame lifestyle choices, anyone should be able to feel more energetic in no time; just don't forget to get some medical diagnostics tucked in the armor. Unfortunately for us mere mortals, sometimes we need that extra boost from doctors and nurses before we can take off again like the energizer bunny!



The difference between being tired and being sleepy

Are you feeling exhausted? Is your head feeling heavy and ready to drop off your shoulders? Well, it's important to distinguish between being sleepy and simply feeling tired. The former means that your body is telling you that it’s time for some rest and the latter refers to a short-term condition of physical exhaustion or mental fatigue. Physically speaking, when you're sleepy, that usually results in having droopy eyes, feeling sluggish and yawning a lot; whereas when you're just tired, you may feel a bit of ache in different parts of your body. However, taking proactive measures is actually key in preventing both conditions from happening. Keeping yourself active during the day helps ward off tiredness - go for a brisk walk, do some exercises or stretching!


All in all, boosting energy levels can make a huge difference in how we feel day to day and the quality of our lives. Eating healthy foods and getting enough rest will help give us a jump start in the morning. Anemia, thyroid or just not enough sleep could be underlying causes for fatigue and should definitely be looked into if your own experimentation with food and lifestyle doesn't seem to help you wind down at night. Plus, understanding the difference between being tired and being sleepy is key when it comes to regulating our circadian rhythm. Knowing these facts can help us figure out small changes we can make in order to better power through the next day. With these tips, I'm sure you'll be able to have more pep in your step soon!
