Being tired shouldn’t be an accepted part of adult life. If you find your energy levels dwindling more than they used to, try these five tips for a much-needed boost.
If you are vegetarian or vegan, it is essential that you take B12 and iron supplements. You can find these naturally in seeds and pulses but taking a multivitamin will ensure you get your required intake. Being deficient in iron or B12 is a major cause of fatigue.
Limit Alcohol Intake
Alcohol may help you nod off, but it disrupts your sleep. Having lower quality sleep is less restful and means you will likely wake up feeling unrefreshed.
The benefits of exercise truly are endless. In addition to boosting energy levels, regular exercise boosts mood too.
Balance Your Meals
If you find you often get sleepy after a big meal, cut back on carbs and fatty foods. Junk food is a major cause of tiredness as it causes sudden spikes in blood sugar and is harder to digest.
Switch Off Your Phone
Before you go to bed, switch off your electronic devices. These devices can disrupt sleep which will leave you feeling unrefreshed in the morning.
