How to feel more energised during the day

Feeling a little tired and sluggish, even though you haven’t really been doing anything? Here are 5 tips to help you get over it:

Avoid the snooze button
Avoid hitting snooze on your alarm. Once you are awake, get up. It will also mean you aren’t rushing to get out the door, which can exhaust you before you’ve left the house.

Start the right way
Make sure you have a good breakfast with plenty of unrefined carbs for slow energy release and lean fat to keep you going.

Get outside
Head outside, even if it’s raining. A change of scenery and some fresh air can help you stay alert and active.

Have a good stretch
If you are sitting behind a desk all day, keep the blood flowing by having a good stretch.

No more 3pm slump or crawling into bed as soon as you get home from work.
