Mid-afternoon energy slumps are the worst.
You had a busy morning and took a break for lunch, and now you’re exhausted and would give anything for a nap.
Don’t reach for caffeine or sugar when your energy nosedives. That latte or chocolate bar might be tempting, but will cause a crash that can leave you feeling even worse later when the caffeine or sugar are metabolized.
A better choice for a pick-me-up is water or low-calorie juices that are full of vitamins and minerals that will give your body a natural boost and keep you hydrated.
One of our favorite energy boosters is NADI rosehip drink, which provides 135% of daily Vitamin C needs and has other essential vitamins and minerals such as B Complex Vitamins, potassium, calcium and iron that give your body a natural shot of energy.
There are no added sugars, and each bottle of NADI has just 9 calories.
Another good way to pump up the energy and clear your head after drinking a refreshing beverage is to take a short walk or do a few stretches.
It might not seem like much, but even a few minutes of exercise can get your blood flowing and help you stay focused for the rest of the afternoon.
Say goodbye to mid-day energy slumps and hello to a healthier you.
