It’s tough to avoid fatigue at this time of year. From Christmas through New Year’s Day, you may find yourself on overload. Shopping, cooking, hosting gatherings, traveling, and attending parties take time and energy. There are a few simple ways to boost your energy and avoid fatigue during the holidays :
Drink water Fatigue is one of the first symptoms of dehydration. If you’re not drinking the recommended eight glasses of water every day, make an effort to keep a water bottle with you when you’re at the mall or at your desk. Sip water at parties. Be sure you drink water when you exercise, too. Even moderate dehydration can zap your energy.
Avoid stimulants and alcohol Avoid fatigue without relying on the false sense of energy supplied by stimulants. The same goes for alcohol, which gives you a temporary sense of well being, but is actually a depressant that can rob you of energy, cause dehydration, and make it difficult to sleep at night.
Get some exercise It’s strange but true: using energy produces energy. Exercising for 30+ minutes five days a week is one of the best ways to avoid fatigue. Regular exercise increases circulation to help you stay alert and feeling energetic.
Eat good nutrition food. Lean proteins, pumpkin seeds, fiber-rich cereals, yogurt and nuts contain essential vitamins, minerals and other nutrients your body needs to maintain a high energy level.
Exhale and De-stress! Enjoy a relaxing massage any time anywhere. Elegantly creamy, Pevonia Botanica Micro-Emulsion Massage Oil Anti-Stress releases pent up tension and fatigue as it easily glides onto your skin. Delightfully aromatic, nourishing Safflower, Geranium, and Orange Oils blend to activate circulation, replenish elasticity and hydration while relieving dryness.
The New Year is traditionally a time to make a clean start and take better care of ourselves. New year. New You. Have a fulfilling and promising 2016.
