Restoring Your Energy
We all have that moment when we feel tired and exhausted, sometimes due to stress or excessive working hours, or as a sign of you being ill, and may be due to aging, but here are a few things you can do to regain some of your lost energy or strength.
Firstly if you regularly feel extremely exhausted it is advisable to meet your doctor and have a checkup done to verify if you are ill. And if you begin to feel tired after you have started a new medication, tell your doctor or your pharmacist what is going on to be on the safe side.
When you feel exhausted the last thing on your mind will be to get some workout in, but it has been proven to give that strength boost you need, since it gets your heart racing and blood pumping, and improving the working state of your blood vessels and respiratory organs and muscle tissues.
One good exercise you could try is the art of yoga, it involves stretching the muscles in the body to relieve the body of tension, giving you that relaxing feeling as you gain a clearer mind and an over boost in both energy and confidence.
Most times, the reason you feel tired and exhausted is due to the fact you are dehydrated. Lack of water in the body system causes a decrease in attentiveness and focus. You tend to use more energy to do even the usual things you do such as the little work you do around the house. To know if you are well hydrated when you urinate, your urine should be clear or at most a bit yellow-colored or having a straw color, if not you should get water to drink.
Being tired sometimes means that the sugar level in your blood may be low, in that case, you need to eat something. Most people don’t eat as much as they need to, maybe due to work, trying to meet up to that deadline. But it is advisable to eat little meals at intervals, to balance your sugar level. When doing this be mindful of the meal size to avoid gaining weight.
It is also beneficial if you incorporate fish to your meal plans, as it is great for the heart and the fish oil containing omega-3 may grant boosts to attentiveness, increasing reacting time and vigor.
When you are overweight, it takes more energy to work. Getting the extra weight off provides massive boosts in energy levels, improves moods and life quality.
Sometimes the reason you get tired while working is that you are doing it when your energy not at the peak. For some, its in the morning, and for some in the afternoon, and some at night. It will be best if you do the most taxing work at the time when you get that massive burst of energy and getting to know your body clock, to avoid getting exhausted easily.
And lastly, you will need to get the optimum amount of rest needed for you to perform without crashing. Timing your bedtime and your waking time to suit your body needs and maybe planning some nap times to refresh your mind and body, giving you the boost in energy you need to work.
