Feeling tired? Most of the time this is due to everyday habits – what we eat.
Beat fatigue with eating habits
how we sleep and how we cope emotionally. You might not realise it, but your eating habits play a powerful role in how you function. Below are six fatigue-fighting nutrition strategies to chew on:
Have breakfast – even if you don’t feel hungry. Studies show that people who eat breakfast feel better both mentally and physically than those who skip their morning meal.
Eat every three to four hours – this can keep your blood sugar and energy levels stable all day long
Fill up on more fibre – it has a time-releasing effect on carbs, so they enter your bloodstream at a slow and steady pace, giving your energy staying power
Fuel your brain with omega-3s – they play a role in keeping brain cells healthy and helping you feel mentally alert.
Stay hydrated – water makes up the majority of your blood and other body fluids, and even mild dehydration can cause blood to thicken, forcing the heart to pump harder to carry blood to your cells and organs and resulting in fatigue.
Watch caffeine intake after noon.
