Autumn is not an easy test: cloudy days drag on indefinitely, and you barely have enough strength to get to the coffee machine, and then from the car to the office … If you consider that winter is ahead and you are planning to winter not near the equator, then this is definitely need to do something. Dr. Libby Weaver, author of Exhausted to Energised, knows what it is. And he advises us.
Eating more greens is like taking in the sun’s rays. Antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, in particular, iron, which contain green vegetables in excess, improve the supply of oxygen to the cells of our body, thereby speeding up all internal processes and multiplying vital energy. Drink green tea – it is known to invigorate as well as coffee, but unlike the latter, it does not cause addiction, and it is difficult to overdo it. All thanks to the amino acid L-theanine, which invigorates and soothes at the same time.
Check your iron levels. This trace element is responsible for providing oxygen to tissues and organs, and its deficiency in the body is the most common problem, especially among women of childbearing age. As a result, a feeling of fatigue and hopelessness. Sound familiar? Then do not hesitate to visit a therapist who will send you for an appropriate analysis.
Incorporate strength and strength training into your exercise routine. Exercises aimed at increasing muscle mass will not only make your body visually more beautiful, but also speed up your metabolism by increasing the number of mitochondria, which are responsible for the absorption of oxygen by our cells.
“Close” the questions you put off day in and day out. Any little thing, whether it be payment of receipts or an appointment with the dentist, hanging on the list of “undefined” cases – over time risks turning into a snowball that will cover you with your head. Therefore, do not wait for a crunch, but resolve issues before they become problems. This will save you energy and nerves.
Make a list of the people, things, and things that make you happy. And at least once a week – try to meet these people, surround yourself with pleasant things and do what you love. At the same time, make a list of those characters who “suck” life energy from you, and, if possible, avoid meeting them.
Take care of yourself. Physical health is the foundation of mental health and vice versa. Therefore, be more careful about your menu, conditions for sleep and rest. Only after you have fully recovered, you will be able to work the same way. Do not forget about this at the moments when you are depriving yourself of an extra hour of sleep in favor of aimless scrolling of the fb feed.
