The key to being well is having energy.
Energy fuels your body’s internal functions, repairs, builds and maintains cells and body tissues, and supports the external activities that enable you to interact with the physical world.
Knowing the source of your energy is the key to living well. Not only in the nutritious sense of the word, but in connection with what makes you feel alive, positive and in good spirits.
Here are a few tips for an energy boost today…
* Drink more water
If your body is short of water, one of the first signs is fatigue. Water is your body’s most important nutrient. Drink more of it!
* Lighten the load
We know this one only too well. Stress-induced emotions consume huge amounts of energy. Managing stress by talking things through, exercising and using helpful tools like relaxation therapies are good ways to controlling it.
* Go to bed early
Less scrolling and more shut eye. Quality sleep makes the world of difference to overall demeanour, cognitive function and creativity.
* Connect with people
Social connections are incredibly important for maintaining good health.
Making connections with others over shared interests in nature or art, an activity or hobby or simply laughing is very good for you.
* Nature Immersion
Fresh air and some sunshine are the perfect antidote to energy deficiency. Being in nature reduces negative emotions. Not only does it make you feel better, but it contributes to your overall wellbeing, reducing blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension and stress hormones, so take your shoes off and walk on the grass.
