Looking for healthy ways to boost your energy without consuming loads of caffeine?
Here are a few alternatives that will give you the pick me up, without the jitters.
An apple a day keeps the sluggishness away
The natural sugars in the fruit will give you a quick burst of energy, without the crash later.
Dehydration can sap your energy. A glass of cold water, or a cup of low caffeine green tea can perk you up fast.
Get down and give me five:
A few pushups will get your blood circulating, making you more alert.
Holding a downward dog pose can also have the same effect.
Get some air
A short brisk stroll will clear your head and give you a dose of vitamin D, courtesy of the sun. The walk gets the blood flowing again, and stepping away from the task at hand for a few minutes can be reinvigorating.
Before you drop $5 bucks for a sugary snack or a 300-calorie Frappacino, try one of these natural and healthy alternatives!
