Everyone had this feeling: I started to energize, feeling good, and suddenly your eyes fall apart. I have read the same line five times in the same email. Your email reply contains the words of the song you just listened to instead of what you mean. Whatever you do, you can not get rid of it.
Why can not you get rid of it? It’s simple: you’ve lost the battle even before it starts. Your energy levels are determined by the foods you eat and eat, and the difference between good foods and bad foods is enough for your day to succeed. With this in mind, here are a few dietary tips that can get over your day faster than shooting with the Red Bull (Note: Do not do this, but only end with tears and tremors).
This is the first rule that helps, yet it is one of the infiltrators who rape them. I can not emphasize how important breakfast is to your energy throughout the day. Even if you are not hungry in the morning, you should eat something: the protein, a piece of toast, or the fruit. Breakfast is necessary to get your body out of sleep and wake up and may lag behind if you do not do in the morning.
2) Reduce caffeine
It may seem self-evident. In fact, many people count caffeine on their secret diet list to get energy. Caffeine is an alluring companion throughout the day to relieve our energy problems: caffeine addicts who work for hours everywhere in movies and television, right? They are, but they also belong to fantasy. The truth is that caffeine will give you a hint of energy that can help you to be productive in the short term while causing long-term disruption.
The best way is to absorb constant small amounts of caffeine throughout the day. Prepare a large cup and sip it, for example, instead of hitting espresso when you feel your attention fades. Believe me, your body will thank you for that.
3) Avoid sugar
Sugar is always a temptation in almost any office, but it’s also one of the worst things you can put in your body if you want to stay alert and productive. In addition, sweet fat is often rich in fat, giving you a knock-on blow: the fat in the bar will make you inactive and neutralize the temporary increase in sugar, worsening the breakdown. I’ll get it when the sugar rises.
4) Eat smaller and more frequent meals
Just like caffeine consumption, eating a large meal at lunch will boost your energy and then come down again. Add this to the list of food intruders: Eat smaller, more frequent meals and keep your energy level constant throughout the day so as not to break down, even if that means giving up a big meal for more small and healthy meals.
In the same subject, it is also good to have a snack: whole grains and fruits are perfect for keeping fit throughout the day, and it’s good to make them ready to keep your level. Stable energy throughout the day!
5) Stay hydrated
One of our food products is not even a real food product: sometimes your energy problem is not at all related to food, but to drinking! Drought is a major source of energy because it reduces the body’s ability to carry nutrients and causes a feeling of discharge faster. Not to mention that cold water sinks make your body feel more alert because of the difference in temperature, so it is obvious that staying hydrated is a great help and can actually help your grief in the wake.
