The daily grind is a beast and it can be hard to rally energy to tackle those creative tasks when you are tired, hungry, or at the end of your rope. Instead of just crawling into bed and queuing up a Netflix show, we have several suggestions that may enable you to boost your creative energy and tackle those challenging items on your to-do list.
To maximize your potential, try these natural ways to boost your energy stores, get in touch with your creativity, and rejuvenate your focus:
- Drink H2O
Yes, you’ve heard it before: drink water. Proper hydration is key to navigating around fatigue, exhaustion, and a lack of focus. To avoid dehydration, treat yourself to a stylish water bottle and make a game of drinking a certain amount of refills each day. As a bonus, staying well hydrated will help keep your muscles pliable for a great massage and boost your skin quality.
- Get Fresh
With mint, that is. Refresh yourself by chewing on mint gum or regular mints when you notice an afternoon slump hit. Mint can help stimulate your central nervous system which boosts blood flow and increases your heart rate to maintain excellent awareness and focus.
- Take It Outside
Most people get stuck behind a desk all day in a sedentary position. This can lead to bad posture, brain fatigue, and a lack of energy. To put that pep back in your step, take a walk outside for a brisk fifteen minute jaunt. Even a short walk can lend a boost to your body’s production of endorphins resulting in more energy and positive emotions.
