With the modern day hectic life style, many people cannot afford to be tired. Therefore, we should maintain health and vitality, which can only be done by preserving the energy we have and be sure that it is not wasted unnecessarily.
Here are some tips to increase energy levels:
- Bananas and watermelon revive energy as fast as sugary sweets do. In fact, ripe bananas rate almost as high as table sugar on the energy-upping index. Dates, mangoes, papaya and pineapple also rank high on the energy-revving scale.
- Just like sugary snacks and soft drinks, carrots and potatoes can up your blood sugar to an all-time high. Unlike junk food, they provide a host of important nutrients such as vitamins A and C, folic acid and potassium.
- Wholesome cereals such as muesli, corn flakes, instant oatmeal, puffed rice top the list of breakfast foods that provide quick energy. This morning meal tends to be digested slowly, which means that blood sugar levels stay stable.
- If you’re not drinking at least 10 to 15 cups of water a day, especially in warm weather or if you work out regularly, you’re setting yourself up for dehydration. Drinking nimbu paani is a healthy way to replenish nutrients that are lost after a workout.
When you take the time to consciously rest, relax, meditate and eat well, you are preserving what vital energy you already have and are also taking the opportunity to cultivate more. This is of paramount importance to your quality of life, level of immunity and your physical and mental stamina.
