Running on empty? Time to refuel

People come to me in need of an energy boost when they feel they are running on empty.

I’m always happy to use my treatments to help with an injection of rest, revitalisation and re-energising. In addition to the treatment, I also suggest ways they can help themselves on a daily basis. When you’re busy things that are quick and easy are ideal.

Here are some things for you to consider to help you keep your fuel tank topped up.

Am I dehydrated?

Water, water, water. A lack of water leaves you dehydrated and can make you feel tired and lethargic. Energise yourself with at least 2 litres of water a day. Have more in hot weather and also when you are exercising.

Am I getting enough physical exercise?

Exercising actually gives you energy, making you feel revitalised and uplifted! You don’t need to go to the gym or run a marathon. 10,000 steps a day is recommended for a healthy adult. A brisk walk will go a long way to achieving some of your 10,000 steps as well as increasing your heart rate. Take the stairs when you have the option to and park slightly further away when shopping.

Am I getting enough mental exercise?

A quick burst of mental simulation helps to stimulate and focus your mind. Take 15 minutes and do a quick crossword, word-search, Sudoku or any other puzzle. Learn a new skill, possibly playing an instrument or learning a new language and again take some time out each day to practice.

Am I getting enough sleep?

Your body needs to rest to restore your depleted energy levels. Having a set time to go to bed and a bedtime routine will ensure you get enough rest and wake up refreshed and ready for the day ahead.

Do I need to do everything?

Ask for help from others. If you’re struggling let them know. People are usually happy to help if they are asked. Planning ahead can save you time and energy – your weekly/monthly shop can be delivered to your door. Share tasks like tidying the toys, cleaning the house, cooking a meal. Think of tasks that can be delegated to others. Eliminate any tasks that don’t need to be done and especially that don’t need to be done by you.
