* Always eat breakfast
Believe it or not, the first meal of the day is the most important one which provides your body the required fuel to keep you going throughout the day. Never miss breakfast; snack on an energy bar, a banana or apple, or drink a glass of juice, if you're in a hurry.
* Eat smaller meals and more often
Studies have proven that by eating smaller and healthier meals throughout the day actually gives you more energy as opposed to bigger meals which often make you feel tired and sleepy! Try to eat a healthy snack every three or four hours to maintain your energy levels.
Walk, jog, or cycle at least fifteen minutes everyday. Any kind of physical activity will boost your energy levels. Find time between breaks, classes, before or after work. Plan ahead and establish a schedule for exercising. You will notice an immediate difference in energy!
* Feed your cells!
If you feel run down and extremely fatigued often or just sometimes, this may be a sure sign that the cells in your body are not receiving enough nutrients. When our body does not get its required dosage of nutrients from our diet, we become exhausted much faster.
To help me stay energized, and more focused, I like to use an AdvoCare supplement called Spark.
* High energy foods
Consider adding high energy foods to your diet such as low-fat cheese, milk, yogurt, beans, eggs, fish, poultry, and lean meat.
Drink a whole glass of organic apple or pure orange juice. These two will provide you with plenty of energy, especially when you are running low!
Drink water on a regular basis.
* Reduce caffeine consumption!
A great way to help maintain your energy levels is to reduce or eliminate caffeine from your diet. Remember: caffeine is a stimulant and will make you jittery.
Take supplements of vitamins C, E, and B6. Or, eat foods rich in these vitamins like oranges, almonds, peanuts, and pecans.
Take iron as a supplement; it will boost your overall energy.
