Today the first in a series of small but effective things that you can do to stop feeling tired and get a little more get up and go. You may have heard some of these tips before but read on and you might learn something new as well as reinforcing what you already knew but have yet to put into practice.
Tip 1: Substitute coffee for water. A bit like sugar, coffee may give the illusion of giving your energy levels a boost, but this is short lived as the drug starts to leave the body the high turns into a low and your energy levels plummet.
Tip 2: Dehydration is a leading cause of tiredness and by the time you feel thirsty you are already dehydrated, so it’s important to be pre-emptive. Carry a small bottle of water with you and sip from it all day long. Not only will this extra water make you feel much more lively but it will also allow your metabolic rate to increasse and your body to work properly. These two things are also vital if you are hoping for some weight loss. Another way to tell if you are dehydrated is to look at your wee – anything darker than straw couloured and you need to have some more water pronto!
