tips for boosting energy during isolation

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

We should aim for 6-8 glasses of fluid a day for optimal health. Some of the benefits of this include regulating your body temperature, supporting your digestive system, flushing out waste and transporting oxygen throughout the body. If you’re someone who finds water too bland, there are lots of other healthy options to increase your fluid intake.  Rokit pods have you covered! ....Matcha Green Tea - packed with more antioxidants.

Pay attention to diet

One of our main sources of energy is, of course, the food we eat. So, if we want to keep our energy levels up, we must eat healthfully and try to integrate the most nutritious foods in our diets. Foods that are a source of so-called empty calories and they typically include processed and ultra-processed products, such as sweets, crisps, and fizzy drinks.

Do some light exercise

Exercise increases your body’s oxygen-carrying capacity and boosts circulation, so oxygen will reach and “feed” all your body parts sooner. Moreover, it stimulates the release of stress hormones — in moderation — which make you feel more energised and alert.  When it comes to exercise and energy, it’s hard to go wrong — and you don’t have to run for miles or work out to the point of exhaustion to start reaping benefits.  There are so many free workouts online. 

Put time aside for yoga, meditation

Practising yoga and meditation might also help to boost your energy levels. This is because these practices focus on techniques — such as mindful breathing — that aim to promote a state of calm.

Learn to delegate tasks

Research shows that people who invest in services that allow them to stop worrying about some of the house chores that they dislike, so that they don’t have to deal with the mental and physical overload, have a greater sense of overall well-being. 

Don’t underestimate sleep Zzzzzz

It’s recommended to get between 7-9 hours of sleep (this may vary from person to person). Insufficient or too much sleep can leave you feeling lethargic and fatigued so aim to get a good balance. If you can, avoid napping during the day to help regulate your sleep schedule.
