Are you a caffeine addict? Though coffee can be good in small doses, this beverage can cause withdrawal symptoms like headaches, along with health issues like dehydration, jitteriness, insomnia, stomach problems, irritable bowel syndrome, kidney stones, osteoporosis, pre-menstrual syndrome and more.
Caffeine also contributes to adrenal exhaustion, causing the adrenal glands to stop functioning as they should. What’s worse, too much caffeine can add an extra load to the liver, causing it to have difficulty with its toxin detoxifying and fat burning. If you drink coffee regularly, there are 5 natural ways to boost your energy, giving your body a break from caffeine:
Drink more water.
Being dehydrated can leave you feeling drained or even exhausted. Water serves many important functions in your body, including helping to flush out toxins that can keep you feeling sluggish. By drinking a big glass of water as soon as you get up in the morning, as well as throughout the day, you’ll be sure to stay hydrated, as well as contribute to energy reserves that you can tap into all day long.
Practice yoga for five minutes.
Yoga postures like Downward Facing Dog, Bow, Fish and Plow all boost the body’s energy naturally by increasing the flow of our life force energy. These postures don’t cause any side effects and help to boost our overall health at the same time they are providing us with added energy.
Take a 15-minute nap mid-day.
Most mammals, including humans are polyphasic sleepers, meaning they do better taking short breaks and sleeping throughout the day. Since we live in a world of sleep-deprivation, naps become even more important to reset the brain, and restore our energy. Just fifteen to twenty minutes of sleep when you feel worn down can give you the energy you need to make it through to the end of the day – no caffeine needed!
Go for a short walk.
Nature is teeming with energy, which we absorb when we spend time in it. We also gain energy when we participate in any mild exercise. Walking happens to be ideal because when we take a brief amble through a forest, a park, or along a beachside, we are gifted with a new mindset. Researchers have also discovered that spending time in nature makes us feel more alive and relaxed at the same time.
Drink green smoothies instead.
Here’s a recipe for an energy boosting morning pick-me-up that won’t drain your adrenals, and upset your stomach. It also happens to be full of vital nutrients your body needs, so you will enjoy greater energy naturally, while it clears your skin, improves your digestion, removes toxic build up, and boosts your brain power.
