Each and every one of us suffer from being totally out of energy every once in a while. Looking at the bed and falling asleep always appears to be a sweet temptation we always ought to resist to get our works done. We are so out of energy that even drawing a smile and opening our eyes widely appear to be really strenuous and difficult tasks. Whatever our reasons are for lacking energy, be it lack of sleep, hunger, too many activities, or lack of motivation, may we present some really easy ways to boost our energy up even just a little.
First, drink lots of water. Help yourself with a glassful of cold water. Sometimes, we feel like we are really hungry but actually we are just really thirsty. Just like hunger, thirst could effectively cause fatigue. If you are not very much into drinking water, and I wonder why, you could go for fruits and vegetables that are high in water content. This includes watermelons, tomatoes, and celery. They could keep you well hydrated without having to drink lots of water. Drinking water has way too many health benefits, and it could even ease fatigue. Water is that awesome.
You may find it hard to believe but one way to ease fatigue is to start moving. Yes, moving utilizes energy but it also helps create energy. Sitting all day long would do you no good. Getting up and doing your moves could be an instant energizer. Just five minutes of movement could invigorate you. You do not need to learn a dance routine just to move. Simply marching in place, running up and down the stairs and jumping up and down will all do. It is up to you to get creative on how to move.
Also, have your daily dose of complex carbohydrates. Carbohydrates, as we all know, provide energy especially to the brain and nervous system. Go grab that whole-grain rice, bread, and cereal. Legumes like beans and dried peas would also be good choices. In addition, get your daily sugar needs from natural sources instead of refined ones.
To fight off fatigue, manage your stress. You may not recognize it but feelings of depression, anxiousness, and worry could use up a considerable amount of your energy. Those negative emotions or states of mind may make you like you just ran a 5K-race or answered a two-hour long Calculus exam. Moreover, energy goes into holding back those feelings. It is best to acknowledge their presence, and move on. Yes, it is easier said than done. But you have to.
Fighting off fatigue is one of the many benefits of meditation. Even a three-minute meditation could work. It restores your energy. Moreover, meditating could be easily done almost anywhere. Just close your eyes, ease your mind, and relax your body. If thoughts begin entering your mind and hinder your meditation, picture a scenic view like clouds floating on a blue summer sky or ocean waves constantly kissing the shore. Take a deep breath.
