Easy ways to boost your energy this festive season!
Christmas and New year is right around the corner and we are all excited to party! I am sure you all are keen on socialising way more than usual and already in the mood to go off the health and wellness wagon. But with that, i
am sure you also want to look your best this season! And for that I’m gonna share with you these few simple things you need to do to energize yourself before you hit the party season and feel & look your best.
1.So let’s start with the first step which is my key step to all energizing! Drink more Water!
Drinking more water and keeping yourself hydrated is the first and most important step to keep yourself energised! Water helps in transporting oxygen and other nutrients to different parts of the body, refuelling energy stores! So
if you are feeling sluggish, maybe its because you are dehydrated. As you all know 2-3 litres of water is a must everyday! In fact, drinking more water will give your skin a natural glow and keep the weight away!
So keep yourself hydrated and experience the energy boost!
2. Get more active
Exercise really helps detoxify your body and adds energy in so many different ways! It improves your muscle strength, keeps your heart pumping and gives you more energy to tackle your daily chores. A 30 minute morning exercise can add so much energy to your day! So go for a morning walk or go cycling. A simple change can be climb the stairs instead of taking the elevator. In fact, you can join the dance class and learn some new moves for the party season while keeping your body moving!
3. Go Green
Add more greens to your diet! All health experts talk about going green and for good reason! Greens are not only high in vitamins A and C but these leafy greens are also loaded with vitamin B – called the energy vitamin! Vitamins keep you healthy, help in boosting your immunity and also keeps you peppy and fun! So include some salad in your diet or go for a quick smoothie or juice and include those leafy greens in your food! I will share some energising smoothies and green juices in my next video. So you can pick some recipes from there very soon!
4. Add some energizing super foods to your diet like maca powder, chia seeds and coconut oil.
Maca powder is nutritional powerhouse packed with nutrients like vitamins B1, B2, B12, C and E, amino acids, as well as minerals like iron, calcium, phosphorous, zinc, and magnesium. This superawesome superfood will not only boost your energy metabolism but will also increase your stamina and keep you full of vim and vigour! Head to the health food section of your grocery store and stock up on those tiny bits of power chia seeds. High in protein and omega-3s, these seeds will pack you with some high energy and help you stay focussed. Snack on them, add them to a smoothie or sprinkle them on your salad, you’re going to love it anyway!
5. My next pick is coconut oil. Coconut oil is something we have been using for decades on end and have still not found it boring! Well, its all for the right reasons!. Coconut oil has a unique form of saturated fat known as medium-chain triglycerides which unlike other saturated fats, provides energy to the body and does not get stored. The fats in coconut oil may also help to boost thermogenesis or fat burning in the body.So get ready to lose that flab!
6. Practice mindfulness and meditation
I am sure you know that meditation helps in calming yourself and also helps you to connect with the deeper part of yourself but do you know that it is also an excellent source to keep you energised? So how does meditation help? Meditation helps you to be more centred and eliminates the wastage of energy from your life. With a huge bunch of those random thoughts wasting your energy, you feel fatigued and lethargic. But when you meditate your energy levels increase and you feel more good about yourself. You get centred, feel positive. And in particular, get rid of the stress! So if you are still thinking about adding meditation to your routine, stop thinking and do it right away!
7.And last but not the least, let me share a very important tip with you! While it is so important to eat the right foods, it is equally important to know the right way to eat them. And for that you need to do some chewing! Healthy
digestion and nutrient absorption begins with the simple act of chewing your food. When you chew your food properly, your body releases digestive enzymes in the stomach that help to break down food so that your body can convert it into energy. When food isn’t digested properly, you could suffer from digestive issues such as indigestion,heartburn, constipation, headache and low energy.
