      Skip the energy drinks, go natural

      When you are feeling exhausted, skip the urge to reach out for a bottle of canned, artificial energy drinks. There are many natural ways that you can boost your energy levels.

      Get your food equation right

      Coffee and tea are one of the most popular energy boosters and you can have up to four cups a day safely. However, make sure that it’s a plain tea or coffee and not flavored ones like frappuchino and the like. A poor diet can make you feel low on energy. Sugar rich foods and highly processed foods will initially give you a high and then make your energy levels crash. Bring on board foods that can really power you with the fuel you need. Include a lot of lean protein from beans, fish and poultry. Add healthy fats such as nuts and avocados to your menu besides whole grains like quinoa, oatmeal or whole-wheat bread. Consume loads of fruits and vegetables.

      Energy boosters

      Perfumes can be awakening energy boosters. Peppermint, citrus and rosemary can perk you up. Light a scented candle or use these essential oils in your shower. You can also try breathing exercises. Take a walk in the fresh air, this can never fail to perk you up. Vitamin D that you get from the sunshine gives you a shot of natural energy.

      Sleep is often overlooked but good sleep is a great energizer. Try and get eight hours of good quality sleep every night. Promote quality sleep by limiting your alcohol, cutting off screen time before sleeping and avoiding heavy meals before sleep. Make sure your bedroom is cool and dark. If you have not got a full night’s sleep, go in for a 60-90 minute nap. This can put you back on track.

      Get a check-up

      Sometimes being low on energy can be a sign of an underlying medical condition. It could mean low blood pressure, thyroid problems or adrenal fatigue.
