It is important to maintain steady energy levels to get the most out of your day.
Here are our top tips for improving your energy levels.
Get More zzz's
Sleeping arguably one of the most important factors in any weight loss or management journey and essential for maintaining good energy levels.
While you are asleep your body works to repair and restore damaged cells and recoup your energey, powering your muscles and brain to get you going when you're awake. Getting enough sleep is especially important if you are exercising and on a weight loss journey, during your rest the muscles damaged during a workout are being rebuilt and repaired by your body, this helps to build and maintain strong and lean muscle mass.
Anywhere from 7 to 9 hours a night should be adequate for healthy weight loss and body repair. If you're struggling to sleep this much at night we recommend seeking the advise of your GP or a health care professional.
Go get some zzz's!
This one may have you second guessing us, however this suggestion doesn't come without proof! By getting your heart rate racing more blood is pumped around the body and deliver oxygen to your muscles, this can give you a burst of energy and help in building and maintaining good cardiovascular health which helps you get through exercise and daily activities with ease.
The endorphins released during exercise are another reason why energy can come from a good work out. Everyone has experienced the rush or happiness after running around outdoors as a child or a gym session in later years this is due to endorphins in the brain, this can help give you a pep in your step and encourage movement, who wants to just sit and not do anything when they are in a good mood?
This is why we recommend some form of exercise daily, even a brisk walk can help give you more energy daily.
Food fuels the body and helps to keep you going all day long!
This makes it extremely important to be eating enough calories throughout the day to maintain healthy weight loss and management while also feeling strong and energetic.
