If you have been feeling rather lethargic and demotivated lately, it could very well be that your body is trying to tell you something. Rather than reaching for caffeine and additive-filled energy drinks to give yourself a boost, there are a host of natural ways that you can give your body a boost, in turn making a positive all-round difference in how you feel, act and think.
Stop eating chemically processed foods
Chemically processed foods are usually packed to the brim with additives, salt and sugar. Whilst the latter two aren’t necessarily bad in themselves – salt in moderation is actually good for you, not the granular little evil-ness we’re led to believe it to be – chemically processed foods are full of empty calories rather than those that your body can transform into a positive energy. Don’t fill up on empty nutrition but ensure your diet is as full of natural ingredients as possible which in turn will feed your body with the fuel it needs to function best.
Use essential oils to boost your mood
Different essential oils can have a range of effects on your body and your mood. Those with citrus properties have been found to effectively aid stress and depression, resulting in better sleep and raising overall motivation levels. Adding 3-4 drops of peppermint oil added to a tablespoonful of almond oil will give you a mixture that you can dab onto your temples and the back of your neck for an instant boost to your energy levels. In fact, the power of aroma is so great that it might be worth investing in a selection of essential oils wholesale to keep to hand.
Yes, we know you know but do you really know how important it is to keep yourself hydrated. And no, fizzy drinks don’t count. If plain water is too boring for your taste buds, add a squeeze of lemon or orange to it to give it some extra flavour. The jury is still out on the quantities you need to drink but aiming for between 50 and 80 ounces daily should have you seeing some positive changes soon including replenished skin tone, weight loss and maintaining healthy brain and muscle function.
