IT’S SLEEP SUNDAY – LET’S TALK ABOUT TIREDNESS & HOW TO OVERCOME IT…

Your energy and tiredness can actually be lifted in different ways. If your struggling just to put one foot in front of the other then you could try some tricks of the trade to help pick you up.

Studies have proved that an early morning workout boosts your metabolism more than at any other time. First thing for me is by far the worst time as I am always as stiff as a board but once I’ve had my medication, a hot shower and got moving I soon feel more comfortable but I might start going for my morning walk before breakfast to try this metabolism lift.

They also say that if you drop a jasmine essential oil on your wrist after showering it will increase brain waves and instantly make you more alert.

Wearing bright colours they say will give you an instant energy boost.

And, apparently when you are doing computer work you blink a lot less which can then leas to you feeling more tired. In the Natural Health Magazine they said that the University of Texas suggest a 20-20-20-20 strategy : blinking 20 times, looking away for 20 seconds and focusing on an object 20 feet away, every 20 minutes !!!!!

Include nuts in your lunch as they are high in healthy unsaturated fats and protein, and packed with key vitamins and minerals, nuts are a great source of energy.

Of course we all know that taking a nap for around 45 minutes can produce a five-fold improvement in your memory and alertness and is something I can definitely verify is so true. If I miss my 44 mins – 1 hr afternoon nap I just cannot function the same and, my pain seems much worse.

I am lucky enough to be surrounded by beautiful countryside, so I can regularly walk among nature. Researchers at the University of Rochester have found that being surrounded by nature for just 20 minutes a day makes people feel more invigorated.

Finally, at the end of your day, try this bedtime power walk. Walk as slowly as you can around your bedroom keeping your body in constant motion. Start with 30 seconds and then work your way up to 5 minutes. They say this low level exercise will reduce stress hormones dramatically.
