Everyone's different so no one diet or exercise regime fits all. But when it comes to good health, these tips can help keep you on track.
Drink some water
Even a little dehydration can affect your mind and body. It can also make you feel sluggish and lead to headaches. But the solution is easy. Grab a glass of water. Avoid coffee as it actually helps to dehydrate us and sugary drinks are a no-no, as they can spike your blood sugar levels so you feel you have energy one minute and then feel flat the next.
The power breakfast
Wholegrains, like wholegrain cereals and oatmeal, are a perfect way to start to the day. Having breakfast can help rev-up your metabolism and energise the body and mind, ready for the day ahead. Add some nuts for an extra energy boost.
Embrace the power nap
If you feel like your battery is running down mid-afternoon, go somewhere quiet and take a quick 20-minute nap. If you can't, try taking a brisk 5-minute power walk around the office, the building or the corner. Move your arms and get your blood circulating. It may help you feel energised and more clear-headed.
Take a deep breath
There's a reason why you hear this phrase so much. Nothing is better when you're stressed, angry or under the pump. Slowly breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth until you begin to feel the difference, with the increased oxygen in your blood. It could be just what you need to help clear your mind and release tension in your body.
