3 Quick Fixes for Energy Boosts

Having  a healthy diet, taking care of yourself physically and getting the right amount of sleep will  supply you with all the energy you need. Although, sometimes  you might have to deal with a kid  who is having  a hard night or spend long hours  at work, so here are some good temporary tips for energy to get your through your busy day!

1. Take a Cat Nap

A 10- to 20-minute catnap really can boost your energy. If you are not sleeping at least six hours per night, you may be sleep deprived, which means hormonal havoc for leptin, gherlin and your cortisol levels. This  results in sluggish behavior, a tendency to crave sweets and dealing with low energy. Just be careful that you don’t sleep more than 10 to 20 minutes. Experts agree that longer doses of napping can have the opposite effect on you!

2. Take a Quick Walk Outside


Walking is a great form of exercise and produces endorphins, which will give you a natural boost. It doesn’t have to be a long walk, just 10 minutes can change your day and attitude! Grab the kids and take a walk together to get some fresh air and add a boost to your energy!

3. Snacktime


There is a reason everyone is hungry between 2-4pm. It is the universal “snack time;” always has been! During this time your energy levels naturally drop due to the rise and fall of the sun and your hormonal response. These circadian rhythms can make you feel tired and hungry. To keep your diet on track and boost your energy, eat a snack with protein and carbohydrates, such as an apple with peanut butter or a small yogurt. You’ll find a light snack with less than 200 calories will make a big difference in how you perform and feel throughout the rest of the day.
