Back To School Energy Boost
With the start of a new academic year, energy levels can feel very low, especially after the summer holiday fun and the back to school shopping rush! To help you keep on top of everything without having to resort to copious amounts of coffee or energy drinks, here are 5 tips to boost your energy levels naturally.
An everyday essential but something many of us lack to keep on top of. Water is essential to keep you feeling full of energy as dehydration makes you feel lethargic and your mood low. By keeping your body hydrated, it will limit this and boost your concentration levels too. Plus it is good for your skin and hair.
Yes you read that right, keeping moving can help increase your energy better than having a nap. If you have little ones pop them into their pushchair and go for a walk around your area or head to the park. The fresh air and exercise will give you a boost and the change of scenery will lift your mood too.
Now the kids are back at school this may be a bit easier to carry out but being selfish and enjoying some me time is a great way to boost your energy. Something as simple as sitting down and reading a magazine, checking out your favorite blog or give yourself a quick pamper session are great ideas.
Eat 3 Meals a Day
We always make sure our children eat 3 meals a day but most mum’s skip breakfast in the rush to get everyone ready in the mornings. This will leave your energy levels lacking by mid morning so make sure you have something even if it is a couple of pieces of fruit.
Set a Bedtime
You install this into your children’s routine so why don’t you with your own? Having a set bedtime where you have a chance to unwind and sleep properly will eliminate tiredness and make you feel fresher and happier in the mornings.
