8 Tips to Have More Energy — Naturally
Running out of energy happens occasionally, it’s only normal. But if you’re always exhausted, you have to do something about it.
Dr. Lawrence Epstein, medical director of clinical sleep medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, said: “If you wake up and never feel rested, feel groggy and tired throughout the day, or nod off in things you don’t want to fall asleep in, that’s a problem.”
According to Dr. Epstein, spokesperson for the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, fatigue can be a sign of a more serious health problem. Although, it’s due to a lack of sleep most of the time.
“There is no substitute for not getting enough sleep,” Dr. Epstein says.
But, there are ways to help you improve the quality of sleep at night and get more energy during the day. No energy formulas involved.
Here are some tips for a natural boost of energy:
Workout in the morning
Ideally, working out in the morning is best because it uplifts your mood and makes you energized for the day. But if that won’t fit your schedule, then try to exercise before the end of your day because it will likely result in better sleep, according to neurologist Daniel Barone from NewYork-Presbyterian.
