When you constantly focus on the responsibilities of your life and the needs of people around you, it is easy to forget about your own body's needs. If you're staying properly hydrated and getting the right vitamins and minerals, your body should have the energy support it needs to properly fuel your everyday activities.
Try these ways to support energy to keep up with your life:
Get Your B12!
Sundown® offers some great B12 products that provide energy support by helping your body convert food into energy.* Try our delicious chocolate and coffee flavored B12 1500MCG Gummies, or our fruit flavored B12 500MCG Gummies. If gummies aren't your thing, give our dissolvable B12 6000 MCG a try!
We all know that what you put into your body makes a huge difference in how you feel. Try to avoid too many processed foods and trans-fats that can make you feel like you're moving in slow motion. Also, don't include an excess of sugars or energy drinks, as they will give you a quick energy bust, but are often followed by a crash. Instead, include natural energy foods like cashews, almonds, and fiber, like whole grains.
Make Sleep your BFF.
In order for anything to work properly, it needs to be charged up. For us, sleep is the process that accomplishes this recharging. The average person needs 6-8 hours of sleep a night, so aim to meet that number. To help make this happen, establish up a routine that sets you up for success. Keep your room dark, cool, and quiet, and try spending a half hour before sleep meditating and relaxing – letting go of the problems of the day.
Hydration is key! After all, we are made up of mostly water. When you don't get enough water it can lead to dehydration, causing your body to feel tired and sluggish. Eight glasses a day is the recommended amount to keep your body operating properly. If you don't want to drink plain water, try adding sliced fruits for flavor!
Dairy-Free Rich Foods
Salmon and clams are amazing sources of B12, and can help deliver the fuel you need. Try salmon steaks for an amazing lunch or dinner option!
