Eating For The Rest of Your Life

Tired Of Being Tired All Day? These Tips Should Offer Some Relief

by Jon Weaver

If you're like most people who tend to feel sluggish and tired all day long, you need more than just coffee to help you get through your tasks until you can get to bed at the end of the day. Here are three effective ways to boost your energy levels all day without having to rely on only coffee:

Fill up on Water

Drinking plenty of water throughout the day is an effective way to improve your energy levels and ensure that you don't get that sluggish feeling that just makes you want to crawl under the blankets instead of taking care of your tasks. Because all your organs require water to function properly, you can expect to feel tired and even irritated if you're dehydrated. So, keep a water bottle with you wherever you go throughout the day so you can hydrate yourself for a quick jolt of energy when necessary. Drinking lots of water every day will not only keep your energy up, but also help keep your skin clear too.

Take Time to Yawn

Believe it or not, yawning is a practice that can stimulate your brain and increase mental alertness so you feel more awake and ready to take on the rest of your day. Yawning forces extra blood into the brain while literally keeping it cool under pressure so you can perform better even when you're feeling stressed out. Luckily, you don't have to wait for a yawn to naturally occur so you can take advantage of its energy inducing benefits. Induce yawning throughout the day when you feel like you are lagging by focusing on the task and then pretending to yawn until a natural one develops.

Always Carry Energy Mints

An easy and tasty way to keep yourself alert all day long is to pop an energy breath mint, like those made by Neuora, any time you feel a little sluggish and after meals for a pick-me-up that will freshen your breath and make it more pleasant for others to converse with you face-to-face. Energy mints work quickly and they'll take care of any munchies you feel coming on, which can come in handy if you're trying to watch your weight. Put a pack of energy breath mints in your bag, one in your vehicle's glove compartment, and another in your desk at work so you're never left without an energy boost when you need it the most.

With the help of these tips and tricks, you should find it much easier to stay awake and feel more energized throughout the day.
