Energise! Strategies To Beat Fatigue

Energise!
Our Favourite Ways of Boosting Energy

I like to use reflexology points as a way of boosting my energy throughout the day. You can do this for yourself using your hands. Press your right thumb into your left palm where the thumb bone meets your palm. Press and hold for a few seconds before repeating on the other hand.

Don’t reach for the coffee if you are feeling sluggish – try something a bit simpler instead: water. Have it plain or slip some strawberry-flavoured Balance Mineral Drink in there. The magnesium that this drink contains should leave you feeling more energised.

Going for a short, brisk walk at lunch time really wakes me up and sets me up for the afternoon’s work.

When I need a midday boost of energy, I often have a little lie down. A party-nap, if you will. If you want to turbo charge your party-nap you could listen to a guided meditation while you’re at it. Just remember to set an alarm so you don’t miss your Zoom meeting.

Having naturally low blood pressure, I’m a big fan of taking Kelp. I find this supports my circulation gently, and probably contributes towards my overall energy levels too. If you’re taking Kelp, have it in the morning rather than the evening, so it doesn’t keep you awake! I have loads of water too, as Louise suggests.

Getting more magnesium into your daily diet can be superhelpful, as it is involved in insulin’s activities and thereby helps your pancreas balance your blood sugar. This has the positive effect of keeping your energy levels stable. You can assist the good work by having your meals at regular times, and not eating in between (like your granny told you!). Some common medications, such as diuretics and statins, put pressure on your magnesium reserves, so you may need to add a supplement as well as keeping an eye on your diet. Other magnesium drains are caffeine, alcohol, and refined sugar.

SOME MAGNESIUM-RICH FOODS

Green leafy veg such as spinach; nuts and seeds such as almonds and pumpkin seeds; brown rice and beans such as black beans and chickpeas; dried fruit such as dates, figs and apricots.

I try to avoid using coffee as a way of boosting my energy, as it leaves me feeling more tired in the long run. Instead, I add a sachet of Balance mineral drink to a glass of oat milk and a blend it into a smoothie with a banana. This gives a nice pick me up midway through the day, without the post caffeine slump.

Move your body! This could be as simple as walking around your building, getting up to open a window (and having a good gulp of air while you’re at it) or having a quick boogie to a song on the radio (if you don’t have an audience!). Literally anything to get your blood pumping will help to energise you from within.

As well as eating at regular times, plan your bedtime and wake time to be at roughly the same time each day. If your body knows that something is happening at a particular time, on a regular basis, it gets into the habit of being ready for it – you’ll be familiar with this if your tummy rumbles in anticipation of your regular breakfast/ lunch slot. It’s really helpful for mustering energy at the start of the day, if your body knows when to expect the wake-up call. Best if you’ve had a good sleep too, of course! Try Dormeasan Sleep if you’re struggling.
