As energetic summer days fade away to lazy autumn days, energy levels start to dwindle. As our lives have become extremely busy, an energy boost is needed. Following are tips for an energy boost. Apart from these tips, IV drip therapy can also help. Know more about it below!
- Incorporate plentiful fruits
As the evenings start to get colder, our body craves food rich in carbohydrates. To get a balanced amount, you need to incorporate different colored vegetables and fruits. Moreover, your body needs energy throughout your day, and small portions of fruit, seeds, and nuts are perfect for this. For snacks, go for fruits like apples and bananas as they contain fibre. Meanwhile, you can add plentiful veggies and fruits by taking them in the form of smoothies and soups.
- Avoid dehydration
Dwindling energy levels and tiredness are indications of dehydration. Lack of water leads to a drop in blood volume. Consequently, the body starts working harder to supply sufficient oxygen, thus tiring it out quickly. Therefore, you should make a habit of drinking 1400-1600 ml of water regularly.
- Take vitamin D
In fall and winter, our skin is unable to produce vitamin D as the sun doesn’t provide sufficient UVB radiation during these months. Thus, individuals should take supplements for vitamin D daily. Of course, sources like salmon and eggs do contain vitamin D, but it is only in minute amounts.
Autumn days surely make us lazy and getting up is the last thing on our mind. However, exercise releases endorphins in the body and these function as natural boosters for energy. Try and participate in aerobics like running or walking for 150 minutes in one week. You can get the recommended dose of exercise by taking part in winter sports like ice-skating too.
- Take naps
Research suggests that short ten to twenty-minute naps provide bursts of energy. However, your nap should not exceed twenty minutes as prolonged nap time results in the opposite. Sleeping for longer can leave you with sleep inertia, and you end up feeling groggy.
- Set a time for snacks
You should schedule your routine such that you take your snacks in between 2 and 4 in the evening. It is during this time that energy drops naturally as the sun rises and falls and affects the hormonal response. Circadian rhythms experienced in this time periods leave you hungry and tired which is why snacking should only be done between these times. To have a snack full of energy, make a combination of carbs and proteins.
- Get sufficient sleep
Sleeping less than six hours leads to hormonal imbalance which inevitably causes sluggishness. While the optimum hours of sleep for different people varies, on average, eight hours is necessary to stay rejuvenated.
- Breathing exercises
We often practice shallow breaths; however, we don’t get sufficient oxygen this way, thus leading to dwindling energy levels. Meanwhile, deep breathing ensures an increased oxygen intake thus boosting energy instantly. So, as you start feeling tired, take deep breaths.
- Get sufficient light
Autumn and winter are known to cause winter blues and SAD which are primarily characterized by lethargy. However, both can be avoided by going out early morning when the light is bright or sitting by a window during daytime.
