Some weeks, we feel on top of the world. We’re in a routine that works, we’re kicking goals, and we’re making the most of each day.
Others, it’s like the rhythm has fallen out of every part of the puzzle. We wake up tired, rush to get out the door, need a nap by midday and can barely drag ourselves to bed at 10 pm.
If you’re feeling run down or like you’re always playing catch-up with your energy levels, it’s time to experiment with your health and wellbeing. Put these six hacks to the test so you can optimise your energy, achieve your goals and find the balance you need for ongoing success.
Go to bed earlier
It’s no secret that sleep is the foundation for our daily energy supplies. If you’re struggling to make it through the day, try going to bed earlier. This may mean you need to change your nighttime activities to fit in some extra sleep, but ultimately, the 1-2 hours you shift at night could make all the difference to your entire day.
When you’re tired, exercising can feel like the last thing that would be helpful. However, this is a tried and true method to increase your energy levels and can also contribute to better sleep patterns - thanks to a tired physical body.
Limit your caffeine
If you’re reaching for another cup of coffee in the afternoon, you may inadvertently be setting yourself up for a restless night of sleep. Caffeine can cause insomnia, particularly when consumed in large amounts. Focus your consumption in the morning, when your body has time to burn it off through the day.
Drink plenty of water
One of the most immediate signs that you’re heading for dehydration is fatigue. Every single cell, tissue and organ in our bodies require water to function. If you’re not drinking enough water throughout the day, you’re setting yourself up to feel more tired than is necessary. Monitor your water intake every hour, making sure you’re hitting the recommended levels for your physical needs.
Boost your energy with juice shots
A whole host of natural ingredients act as superfoods, giving our body boosts in key areas such as immunity, digestion, energy, and metabolism. Juiced Life’s Daily Vibes Powerpack 4 Shots is designed to hit all of these key areas, resulting in increased energy that’s available instantly. Keep a juice shot at home, at work and close by on the run so you can reach for a helpful shot of energy to keep you going through the demands of each day.
Alcohol can have a sedative effect, so it’s no wonder it’s not recommended if you’re concerned about your energy levels. Skip the 6 pm cocktail if you’re looking to maintain your energy levels, and opt for a high-energy workout at the gym instead to give your body the support it needs.
