The Boost You Need : 9Round Energy
If you find yourself feeling sluggish mid-afternoon, fighting to stay alert throughout the day, or feeling just plain exhausted, then it’s time for a change. Luckily, there are easy, affordable ways to banish tiredness and put that spring back in your step.
1. Lighten your load
One of the main reasons for fatigue is being overworked, which often also causes stress. Stress-induced emotions consume huge amounts of energy. Try to streamline your list of "must-do" activities, pare down those that are less important, and don’t be afraid to ask for help.
Exercise almost guarantees that you'll sleep more soundly. It also gives your cells more energy to burn and circulates oxygen. And exercising causes your body to release epinephrine and norepinephrine, stress hormones that, in modest amounts, can make you feel energized.
3. Avoid smoking
You know smoking threatens your health. But you may not know that smoking actually siphons off your energy by causing insomnia. The nicotine in tobacco is a stimulant, so it speeds the heart rate, raises blood pressure, and stimulates brain-wave activity associated with wakefulness, making it harder to fall asleep.
4. Eat for energy
It's better to eat small meals and snacks every few hours than three large meals a day. This approach can reduce your perception of fatigue because your brain needs a steady supply of nutrients. Learn more about how to properly fuel your body in the 9Round Nutrition Manual.
5. Drink water
What's the only nutrient that has been shown to enhance performance for all but the most demanding endurance activities? It's not some pricey sports drink. It's water. If your body is short of fluids, one of the first signs is a feeling of fatigue.
6. Natural energy supplement
With demanding schedules and everything that life throws at you, sometimes you just need a little extra help to get you over that midday slump, or give you the energy you need to get that workout in. That’s where a natural energy supplement, like 9Round Energy, can help.
Rich in antioxidants with a hint of caffeine (equal to a cup of coffee, with none of the calories) and B vitamins for a surge of energy without jitters, 9Round Energy’s special formula prevents crashing, for a pick-me-up to get you through whatever the day throws your way.
