Waking up after a solid night of sleep may have you feeling you can take on the world. That is until your energy drops and all you want to do is sleep at your desk.
Health.com suggests these 5 things could be zapping your energy levels.
1. Skipping Workouts
It may seem like the best thing to do is sleep instead of workout when you feel sluggish, but skipping your workout will work against you. A brisk 20 minute walk could help perk your energy level.
Next time you’re feeling tired, grab a glass of water. The slightest bit of dehydration can send your energy levels dropping.
3. Skipping Breakfast
Breakfast may feel like a waste of time, but skipping breakfast is a bad idea. Food is fuel and your body burns fuel as you sleep. So, when you wake up, you need to fill your tank back up.
4. Drinking before Bed
A nightcap may help you fall asleep, but it could also wake you up during the night. 0
5. Checking Email in Bed
Wrapping your day may mean a last minute check of emails. However, you may want to do so before you get into bed. The bright light from your smartphone or tablet can interfere with your bodies natural sleep/wake cycle.
