It’s the middle of the working day, around 3 p.m. and you are feeling so exhausted that you wish the day was over. You can barely keep your eyes open and all you want to do is get out of the office, head over to your home, and just plop down on the bed. So, what do you do? Reach out for the fifth cup of coffee to help you survive another two hours? Coffee does give you that instant boost of energy; however, too much of it is not good. Too much of coffee will end up making you feel jittery and you won’t be able to concentrate on the work at hand.
So, what is the solution? Try out these proven, healthy, quick and easy ways to have more energy.
#1 – Breathe
When we are stressed and tired, we tend to take short and shallow breaths, often through our mouths. This deprives our body of oxygen, which in turn, makes us further tired and sleepy.
The solution: Sit erect on your chair, close your eyes, and just breathe deeply for 5 minutes. Breathe in to a count of five and breathe out to a count of five. When you open your eyes, you won’t need that coffee fix for boosting your energy. Do this several times a day to keep your energy levels up throughout the day.
