Are your energy levels low? It is an issue many of us experience, thanks to the busy lifestyles we have to lead. With so many different demands, whether from work, our families or our children, we are pulled many different ways. So it only follows that we’re going to be tired!

 

However, by improving our energy levels, we are inadvertently improving other areas of our lives too. You will become more productive at work- this could lead to a pay rise or promotion in the long term. Energy from a healthier lifestyle will boost not just your insides, but boost your looks too. So what are you waiting for? Try out these foolproof ways to increase your energy levels.

 

Matcha Powder

With 10x the power and benefits of normal green tea comes matcha powder. Used and adored in Japan for years and years, it’s time to add it to your diet. Rather than throwing back mug of green tea after mug of green tea, have this. You can simply have it in the form of a single shot. Your energy levels will be far higher than if you’d had a tea or coffee; even though it’s entirely caffeine free. In fact, the only ingredient is ground-up green tea leaves. That’s it!

 

Make Eating Healthy Bearable

If you are put off from eating certain foods because of how they taste, there are ways around that. If you don’t like spinach, try adding it to a smoothie! With all the other ingredients you can’t even taste the spinach. Yet you still get all of the benefits! If you’ve got to eat something sour, follow it up with a miracle fruit tablet.

Sun Light

Sunshine is a wonderful and strong source of Vitamin D. This makes us feel alert and awake and energised. However, if you live in a place where the sun doesn’t appear often, you might be missing out. Or perhaps you work in a basement office, or a factor, or another room that doesn’t get much light. If this is the case, consider investing a sun light. These are also known as SAD lights. They are now well respected for counteracting the side effects of not getting enough sun, and vitamin D. Keep yours close at hand, like on your desk. Only use it in the mornings and daytime, though. Using it in the evening means an over stimulated brain and body just before bed. This is not what you want if you are after a restful night’s sleep!

Exercise

It seems very counterintuitive that exercise gives you more energy. Surely, you think, I’ll be even more exhausted? Here is the truth. At first… maybe. Nobody can go for one run for the first time in 20 years and feel incredible. It takes commitment, and you’ve got to get through the rough to reach the smooth. However, if you stick with it, the energising benefits will come. You will feel full of energy after you exercise, thanks to all the positive chemicals whooshing around your body.
