Staying energized throughout the day and being ready to take up any task no matter how much energy we might need to invest in it seems like an impossible feat as most of us are done with the day around midday. But staying on your toes and that too, in a full of energy state is not an impossible task. All it takes is a little dedication and willingness to do something about it. Here are a few tips to make you stay active throughout and keep yourself healthy along the way.
We have heard about ‘eat healthy’ but switching your daily habits to entirely new routines seems too big a thing to do. Good news is, there is an easier smaller way to go about it. Just think about eating something good and naturally grown for your first meal of the day which means you need to include a small portion of fruits and vegetables in your breakfast routine. This will make sure your energy level has been raised before you step out and this is also your way of making sure your fiber and protein levels are exactly where your body needs them to be. The key point here is ‘your first meal has to have something healthy’, rest is your choice.
Since we are on the topic of eating healthy or something healthy for that matter, another rule is to have protein in ‘every meal you take’ throughout the day. Proteins are your better friends than carbs because they are digested in manner that keeps you away from a food coma or making you crave for more carb loaded food in simple words. With proteins, the first food item that comes to our minds is meat or vegetables but this isn’t the only way of adding protein to your diet. Bring in some nuts for your oatmeal or just have a hardboiled egg with your lunch for that protein part mentioned earlier. It’s a simple addition of habits.
Speaking of habits, it is a good habit to have a routine that includes treating yourself with a good breakfast by waking up a bit early in the morning and having a set time for waking and sleeping both. Keeping your sleep cycle within the same time frame every day rejuvenates your mind and body. Try it, you will feel better just with this simple cycle setting routine. If you are that crazy cranky morning person who everybody stays out of the way of, this could be your first step to make peace with the living. Calm your body down, let it get accustomed to a routine that suits your timings.
Calming down takes us to the topic we hardly want to hear, if it does reach our ears we tend to make a mental note only to forget about it later. Why make it a separate routine? Pick up your gym back and take it along to your work to head to the gym soon as you are done with your work. Why make it a double task by heading home and then setting out for exercise. You wouldn’t feel like it by then anyway.
Bring these very small changes to routine and you will have a good energized day every day!
