We’ve all had those afternoons where all we can think of is just how tired we are, but do you find those afternoons happening more often than you’d like? Constant exhaustion can stem from a wide variety of issues, but before talking to a doctor and seeing if it’s a part of something more serious, here are a few lifestyle changes to try to see if it helps!
Exercise- Making sure you get at least half an hour of physical activity everyday will not only boost your health and increase your energy levels, but it will also release endorphins making you happier! Exercise doesn’t necessarily have to mean going to the gym or going for a run. Even just taking a walk in the morning or evening is good. If you find it hard squeezing in some time for exercise, small things like parking further from your office and walking will add up.
Diet- Making sure you are eating whole, healthy foods is important to maintaining energy. A proper balance of protein, carbs, and fats is needed. Carbs are an amazing source of energy, however, eating too much at once elevates blood sugar, and the crash will leave you exhausted. To maintain energy, try upping your protein intake. Proteins such as chicken, fish, beans, etc. take the longest to digest, keeping you fuller and maintain steady energy levels throughout digestion.
