Working full time:

If you work full time, remember to breathe deeply often, stretch and move around to get your body's juices flowing again and a techno-detox one day a week can also help. This is where you ban mobiles and laptops, so you're completely contact free.

Exercise is a key to pumping up your energy levels and elevating your mood. - so if you're not doing any, it could be a good time to start. Start simple with 30 minutes raising your heart rate and some weights as well as 30 minute walking in fresh air-both equally imortant!

  • Nutrition:- If you devour rubbish then that's how you'll feel so the key is to enjoy regular, healthy meals. Energy sappers include caffeine, soft drinks, chips, sugary foods, takeaway meals and alcohol, because they all spike your sugar levels leaving you with a dramatic come down. Dairy foods also make some people feel lethargic as will too many carbohydrates in the middle of the day. Instead opt for protein-packed meals of turkey, tuna, beans, chickpeas, fish, or vegetables as they'll make you more alert and aware. Other energy foods include bananas, apples, avocado, nuts, and eggs. Make sure to always have breakfast, and don't overeat because your stomach will struggle to digest all the food which will cause tiredness.
  • Lifestyle/Mood/Depression:- one in four women and one in six men will suffer from some form of depression in their lives and the bad news is that when we're feeling low our energy levels tend to follow. If you've noticed that you don't have as much energy as you used to, if normal activities seem difficult, and if you don't want to socialise, then you could be at risk. Being honest with yourself, taking responsibility for your own happiness and getting help is the key to living the life you want.

Serotonin is the chemical in the brain which makes us feel happy, alive and energetic. It responds to sunlight, exercise and fresh air, so get outdoors and get active. Just a 15-minute walk a day is proven to help relieve depression. It's also important to be around friends, family, pets, and children and to take up a hobby as all will lighten your mood. You can also try listening to music that uplifts you and watching live events such as plays, sporting games and concerts. Wearing bright, happy colours has been proven to help lift people out of black moods, as has meditation, deep breathing, yoga, and having plans to look forward too.
