During the festive season, an energy boost is a necessity. Christmas parties, family functions, school events and never mind the rush to the shops. While a lot is going on, this is the season where most people struggle with their routines. Everything suffers such as diet and exercise, time management and often a symptom is energy depletion. So, what are some ways you can boost energy to make sure you can not only attend the parties but enjoy them?
4 easy ways to boost your energy
1. Move around to boost energy
Activity will give you more energy not less. Take a brisk 10-15 minute walk every hour if you can. If not, try 5 minutes at least. Find a friend to walk with or perhaps just take vital me time, but be sure to move.
Magnesium is a source of energy, nutrient replenishment and a quick treatment for insomnia. Supplements exist for a reason and primarily it’s because the nutrients we need may not be readily available in the foods we consume. During the festive period when everyone’s diet is askew, it’s a good idea for us to ensure we properly compensate for deficiencies.
3. Meditate in the morning
During this time, it’s important to stay mindful and be present. Meditation is critical to centre yourself and stay focused. Often meditation can be a struggle because it requires stillness of the mind. Begin a meditation practice by selecting a specific area in the morning where you can have just 5 minutes of quiet time. Once this meditative space is selected, simply focus on your breathing. Take deep breaths in through your mouth and slowly release. Notice the tempo of your breathing and state 5 items you are thankful for. Focus on those and repeat it throughout the time you meditate. After all, grateful people are the happiest people.
4. Stay hydrated
Water is critical during any time of year and especially this season. Often, a festive glass of tipple at night paired with coffee fuel during the day lead towards dehydration. Make sure to have a cup of water for every cup of coffee or vino cheer during this season.
