In our information age, when everything moves with incredible speed and life is gaining momentum, we are no longer keeping up with it. Psychologists believe that being charged with energy is much more important than having time to do a lot. Symptoms such as weakness, lethargy, and drowsiness are familiar to everyone, for several reasons: consequences – deterioration of performance and overall condition of the body.
The components of your body’s vitality are rooted in four aspects: nutrition, fresh air, emotional state, and sleep. Paying due attention to these four components, you will provide yourself with enough energy, with a cheerfulness charge, so that these sleepy questions no longer arise. When the energy supply is reduced, even minor problems begin to seem intractable. And if the energy hits the key from you, then you can cope with almost any task (if, of course, it has a solution). Do you know what the operation of your original battery depends on?
What you need to do to have the strength to keep pace with life. How to be vigorous and not get tired during the day?
1. Getting enough sleep is necessary.
It would be best if you go to bed at 22-23 hours and get up at 6 o’clock. At first, it will be difficult to get used to such a regime, if before that it was opposite, for example, you slept during the day, and you were awake at night.
Over time, this night mode will affect your health. But if you get involved in the right regimen, well-being during the day is just around the corner.
Proved that chronic sleep deprivation leads to a decrease in total energy potential. You want to be more energetic – provide yourself with the conditions for adequate sleep. However, sometimes you cannot sleep even for 9-10 hours. In such cases, if it is already light outside, you need to get out of bed and go out into the air (to the balcony, for example). Sunlight inhibits the production of melatonin, a sleep hormone. By the way, its maximum concentration in the body falls at about 4 am. That is why it is so tricky for lovers to study and work at night to concentrate and keep their eyes open this time from three to four in the morning. You get enough sleep if there is fresh air in the room.
Be sure to ventilate the room before bedtime. But it would be better if your window or window was ajar at night. I checked on myself – if it is stuffy at night in the room, then you wake up not sleeping and broken, even if you have overslept the required 7-8 hours. On the contrary, if the room was fresh, then even less sleep time would be enough to feel vigorous and rested in the morning. Sleep should be of high quality. There should be no extraneous sounds and noise. Sleep should be with the lights off.
2. The sun
Consider that all of us, in principle, all living things, work on solar batteries. And the lack of the sun (especially in the cold season) instantly entails a decrease in our internal energy. Flowers turn yellow, and we become lethargic. Therefore, an important tip is to surround yourself with light (both solar and artificial). Build your schedule to capture the light of the day. Of course, you will now say that people are divided into “owls” and “larks,” and you, as a clearly expressed “owl,” this advice would never be implemented? But believe me, it has long been proven that all this is not innate, but an acquired quality. Actually, “owls” are lazy “larks.”
3. Drink in the morning 1-3 glasses of clean water on an empty stomach.
This will help you to fill the water shortage in your body because during the night there is a flow of fluid, which causes dehydration. Also, this ritual will help you to normalize the work of the gastrointestinal tract and will contribute to the removal of toxins from the body. Water should be clean, better spring water. I drink raw filtered.
You need to drink water for about 30 minutes before breakfast. Water temperature should not exceed body temperature. Such water is better absorbed and thereby renews the intercellular fluid. It is even better if you add a slice of lemon to the sea.
4. Before breakfast, do some set of exercises, directly speaking, practices.
This is a must-see point to feel good during the day. And thus you will lay the foundation of health for the next years. After charging, be sure to take a shower. It will be better if it is in contrast. So you will observe not only hygiene but also cleanse your skin of toxins, which were derived from charging through the surface. Do not necessarily rush to the stadium or the gym. 10-minute exercise during the working day energizes for at least 2 hours, promotes the release into the blood of substances that trigger the activation of brain activity and increase creativity. On the types of “production” gymnastics, we still have to talk.
5. Do not forget to have breakfast.
This may be some dairy products – cottage cheese, kefir, yogurt, together with fruits or dried fruits, nuts, juices. Do not be confused by this compatibility of products, and intestinal problems will not if they eat only for breakfast. Such products give a good boost of energy for the day.
6. Your lunch should not consist of mixed and sufficiently fatty foods.
Try to select products for compatibility. Otherwise, after dinner, you will feel sleepy. Because you load up your body with the hard work of digesting heavy foods.
7. It is essential during the day not to indulge in bad thoughts, load yourself with other people’s problems.
Try to approach all your difficulties philosophically. If you cannot influence the events, so why worry about it. If you can, then do everything in your power, but look at it as a reason to become better. Try to see only the positive side of everything.
8. In the evening you should not be too active.
This may be some quiet activities, reading books, watching a light film, social communication with the family. All this will be good preparation for a good sleep and contribute to a rash.
9. The biological clock
Alas, to be “hearty” from morning to evening is still not realistic. The greatest decrease in energy occurs in the middle of the day. This is probably why an afternoon nap (siesta) is provided in many southern countries. In order not to enhance the effect of drowsiness, it is not recommended to eat carbohydrate-rich foods during these hours. But protein foods, vegetables, and fruits, on the contrary – our allies in the fight against drowsiness. And yet, psychologists advise not to plan important things for the middle of the day, and at the slightest opportunity, it is worth taking a nap, at least 15-20 minutes.
If you have your own office – this is not a problem: close it and ask the others not to disturb you for the next 20 minutes. The afternoon nap of most of us dissipates by three o’clock in the afternoon. But the biggest energy surge occurs in the early evening hours. This time is especially favorable for studying, for example, learning a foreign language.
10. Favorite business
Yes, imagine psychologists say: “To always feel full of positive energy, do what you love and love what you do.”
11. Ability to rest
Excessive work in the absence of rest leads to fatigue, and it is not far from it to chronic fatigue syndrome. So, the proper organization of work and rest to be energetic and active day after day is merely necessary.
These are simple, but useful recommendations will help you to be vigorous and not get tired during the day. The main thing is to perform them regularly, then they will become a habit and you will no longer perceive them as something uncomfortable, but on the contrary, such actions will become your healthy, productive lifestyle!
As for breathing, it is directly related to the intake of fluid. We inhale and exhale steam and gases. Therefore, on the one hand, you need to consume as much liquid as possible, the body’s constant water supply is at least 1.5 liters of ordinary water per day, and on the other hand, inhale fresh air and give the body pressure to remove slags and acids from the body. The best option is a house in the country. You will always be in good shape, plus a good sleep.
Many people think that they are sleeping enough, but they do not even know that each of us has short and imperceptible stops. Each such interruption wakes you up for a minute, and the result is lack of sleep, despite eight hours of sleep.
