Boost Your Energy Without Caffeine
How many times do you feel yourself droop in the afternoon or wake up with less energy than you hoped? Coffee is a great way to boost your energy but if you don’t drink coffee or you’re looking for other options, there are several. Check out this article from Health.com for even more ideas!
Hydration is Key!
When you start feeling sluggish, grab a glass of water and chug away. If plain water isn’t your thing, try adding lemon, lime, watermelon, or other fruits.
For drink add-ins that provide a boost with natural caffeine alternatives, try Pollen Burst (in grape, orange, and berry), A.C.T., Rebound FX (in cans with carbonation or powder), or ElectroFuel. These are just a few of the options Youngevity offers. See all the energy beverage options and have one or more on hand for that afternoon slump!
Move Your Body
When you start feeling tired, moving your body is an excellent way to infuse energy. And it doesn’t have to be fancy moving. Go for a walk, which if you do outside gets you vitamin D that also helps with energy. Walking is the perfect exercise because no special equipment is required and you can do it anywhere.
Try standing up and stretching. Reach as high as you can with both arms. Then reach high with your left and then your right arm. Try bending over and then stretching tall. There are tons of videos on the internet with ideas for stretching if you aren’t sure what to do.
Love music? Put on your favorite tunes and dance it out. No fancy moves needed just move to the beat. Bounce up and down, move those hips, kick up your heels, do whatever feels good. It’s a fun way to move, plus, the music will help energize you as well.
If you know that 2:00 every day is your slump time, try diffusing one or more of these oils. Keep in mind, these strong scents may affect pets, elderly, and children adversely, so keep that in mind when diffusing. For easy diffusing, grab the Youngevity Energy Diffuser Blend Kit for a set of unique blends that may help you feel energized.
If All Else Fails
Tried several energizing tactics and you still can’t keep your eyes open? Research shows that a short nap can refresh you and keep you going the rest of the day. But be careful that you don’t nap too long, as that could interfere with getting a good night’s rest. The Mayo Clinic provides benefits as well as suggestions for napping that won’t affect sleeping at night.
Here’s to more energy to keep you going all day!
