If you are unable to make it through the day without feeling your energy levels take a nosedive, then consider the 5 energy boosting tips below. You can turn to these 5 tips as either a proactive approach—or when you are already feeling sluggish.
Tip #1 Limit Your Gluten
While going entirely gluten-free is not necessary, being mindful of the gluten you eat during the day is. This includes bread, muffins, crackers, and pastries. Limiting these tasty gluten foods will decrease your refined sugar content. While refined sugars may provide a temporary spike in your energy level, they quickly lead to a drop in energy. Not only that, gluten takes longer for your body to digest—meaning more of your valuable energy is spent breaking down gluten, that you should instead be expending going about your day.
Tip #2 Drink Fresh Smoothies
In Tip #1 we discussed how refined sugars can zap your energy, but unrefined (aka. unprocessed) sugars do the exact opposite. So instead of turning to random snacks when your energy is low—make a fresh smoothie made from your favorite fruits and vegetables, leaving the fiber in this whole food drink. If you are ordering from a restaurant or juice bar, just make sure there are no added sugars.

Tip #3 Take A Quick Walk
With so many of us employed in jobs that require us to sit for long periods of time, the lack of physical activity can lead to a lack of energy. When you begin to feel your energy levels drop—or better yet before they drop, take a 10-15 minute walk outside. The fresh air will be refreshing, the vitamin D of the sun will naturally boost your energy levels, and the movement will increase your circulation—all of which will leave you feeling reenergized.
Tip #4 Take Time Out To Breathe
Breathing is second nature, but when you focus on mindful breathing techniques—you will cleanse your lungs of stale air, your body of toxins, and will alleviate tension and stress. The next time you feel low on energy, spend 5-10 minutes practicing deep mindful breathing. Alternate filling your lungs all the way with air and exhaling completely, then filling your stomach all the way with air and exhaling completely.
