Seven Steps To Boost Your Energy

There is mad rush everywhere. Everyone wants to achieve everything at one go. One feels absolutely short of time. If you choose to relax, somebody else is ready to grab the opportunity. Who compensates for this loss of time and suffers the most ? You guessed it right – Your Body . At the end of the day, you feel highly fatigued and over exhausted. Your energy levels are pathetic and you feel like a log.

This is a scenario in most households in today’s world. While you can take enough precautions including more sleep, what you can definitely do is to take right kind of diet. This will help fuel the body for the long haul and maintain your energy levels.

You will find dramatic positive results if you manage to follow the below seven steps to boost your energy level.

Before that, let us understand something about the source of this energy. Carbohydrates, proteins and fats are the nutrients that provide calories and give you energy. Glucose is formed by conversion of carbohydrates and is the most important source of energy. A rise in your level of blood sugar triggers your pancreas to release insulin, which helps in glucose entering the body’s cells. Once inside the cell, this glucose supplies the much-needed energy to fuel to your body .

Now that you are clear about the role of glucose in activating your energy levels, here are the simple seven guidelines aimed for your overall well-being.

1) Eat Breakfast : Never skip your breakfast. This is the first meal of your day and the most important one. Your body’s energy supply is replenished after going without food for several hours during the night. Breakfast keeps you more physically and mentally active and sets up the tone for the day. Your concentration level increases if you have the habit of taking breakfast regularly.

2) Avoid Dehydration: Make sure that you have at least six to eight glasses of water or fluid to prevent dehydration. Water regulates your body temperature, carries toxins away and transports vital nutrients to your body. Dehydration causes fatigue.

3) Eat smaller amounts of food periodically: It is always better to go for several smaller meals throughout the day than to have one or two over loaded meals. Smaller meals keep the blood sugar steady and flow of energy.

4) Focus on complex carbohydrates: Do not just follow your taste buds but also have a balanced diet, which includes complex carbohydrates. Among other foods, complex carbohydrates are found in starchy vegetables, whole-grain cereals, lentils. As they are digested gradually, there supply steady fuel to the brain and the body.

5) Restrict food with simple sugars: You may experience a certain high and quick rise in energy levels by consuming sweets. However, these are followed by sudden tiredness and leave you drained. Therefore, restrict your intake on these.

6) Enrich your body in iron-rich foods. Make sure that your diet has adequate intake of iron-rich foods. These are found in green leafy vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds, red meats, organ meats etc. If your body is short of iron, the red blood cells cannot supply as much oxygen to cells. This leads to low energy and fatigue. Excess iron intake is also as harmful as iron deficiency. Therefore, make sure you consult your physician before any change.

7) Restrict Caffeine and Alcohol: Nothing can match than quality and adequate sleep for feeling energetic. Beverages such as caffeine and alcohol compete directly with a chemical called adenosine, which helps in inducing slumber. These stimulants reduce adenosine level in your body, which in turn makes your sleep suffer.

Therefore, the next time you feel low, act with high resolve on these seven golden steps. After all, you need those energy levels high all the time, don’t you?

I drink a lot of green tea and agree it is excellent for all round health benefits. It contains antioxidants which prevent the formation of free radicals which stops muscle breakdown.

Nicks points are also valid things to do though as well and green tea is not the sole answer!

Very Happy

7 Steps to Boost Your Energy.

Post by stotalhealth on Tue Jan 18, 2011 3:27 am

These simple steps will help to rev up your thyroid and adrenal glands, giving you loads more energy and improved immune resistance.

1. Eat well. Eat more raw vegetables, nuts, fish and tofu, and avoid processed or junk foods. If your thyroid is underactive, avoid broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, kale, spinach, turnips, soy beans, and mustard greens as they depress thyroid activity .

2. Eat small frequent meals. Eat smaller meals with healthy snacks in between, such as a handful of nuts and raisins, fresh fruit with yogurt, a smoothie, hummus on rice crackers.

3. Rest. Get enough rest, and sleep 8 to 9 hours a night.

4. Get more essential fatty acids. They’re anti-inflammatory and necessary for the production of hormones. Oily fish, flaxseed or fish oil are very beneficial.

5. Practice meditation, Tai Chi or Qi Gong. You’ll feel energized, more balanced, and much less stressed.

6. Correct nutrient deficiencies with supplements. Your practitioner can help you determine what supplements you might need to improve your thyroid and adrenal function.

7. Exercise every day. Include both stretching exercises and brisk 30-40 minute walk to improve circulation, help flush out toxins and increase your metabolism for loads more energy.

But to get the greatest benefit from these simple steps and start feeling on top of the world, you must clear your system of accumulated waste, food deposits and toxins. If your body systems, tissues and cells are clogged up, anything else you do is like pouring water into a cess pool.

Thanks.........
