5 COFFEE-FREE WAYS TO BOOST ENERGY
Say ‘goodbye’ to coffee crashes and jitters! Boost your energy naturally with these 5 easy tips...
It’s easy to guzzle down cup after cup of coffee when you roll out of bed and you have a full day ahead of you. But what happens when 3 pm hits and your energy levels take a nose dive?
While you might be tempted to hit the ‘brew’ button or head to your local coffee shop, studies show that you can improve your energy naturally by adopting healthier habits and adjusting your diet.
If you’re ready to kick fatigue to the curb for good, keep reading for some quick energy-boosting tips!
DRINK MORE WATER
Have a bad case of the yawns? Drink some water! Studies show that the more hydrated you are, the more energy you’ll have.
So, how much water should you be drinking? According to experts, the average adult needs between 11-16 cups per day. But for some, the taste of plain water is what keeps them away from getting their daily sips. Our solution? Infuse it! Give your water a boost of flavor with fresh fruits, herbs, and superfoods. It’s an easy way to stay hydrated while nourishing your body with essential nutrients.
Stressed out? Studies show that too much stress can cause chronic fatigue, insomnia, and brain fog. That’s why it’s important to practice stress management techniques, such as meditation, journaling, and deep breathing.
Another great way to reduce stress is by consuming adaptogens. Adaptogens are natural herbs and plants that possess therapeutic effects and help promote general well-being. They can also help regulate your body’s response to stress and improve energy.
Is low-energy keeping you from tackling your day? Skip the extra cup of joe and get moving! Studies show that daily exercise can help improve natural energy, boost endorphins, and improve sleep. Whether you’re doing at-home yoga or going on a walk, you should aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate activity per day.
GET THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF SLEEP
You already know that getting little to no sleep can make you feel tired and sluggish the next day, but did you know getting too much sleep can have the same effect? The average adult needs between 7-9 hours of sleep each night to help restore the body and mind – no more and no less.
Need help creating a healthy sleep schedule? Practice a relaxing pre-bed routine by enjoying calming superfoods, disconnecting electronics, and dimming the lights.
EAT ENERGIZING FOODS
This one is a no-brainer! An easy way to avoid fatigue is by eating energizing superfoods. There are plenty of natural whole foods that can give you a boost of energy, but two of the most powerful are guarana and maca.
Guarana is a fruit that contains more caffeine than coffee beans but is released slowly into the bloodstream to give you hours of steady energy. Maca is an adaptogenic herb that helps boost focus, balance hormones, and improve natural energy.
Thinking of giving them a try? You can find both of these superfoods in our NEW Energy Bomb Bars! These tasty snack bars are 100% organic and made with only clean, plant-based ingredients. No preservatives, no added sugar, and no artificial flavors.
