One of the first stepsmany people take on the road to wellness is to reduce their caffeineintake. In doing this, however, theirbody begins to feel the effects of the withdrawal and often times the return tothe habit and feel guilty for “failing” at their goal. To avoid the energy slump when cutting thestimulant out of a diet, the tips below can oftentimes boost mental focus andgive the body enough energy to keep up with daily tasks until the addiction tocaffeine is out of the blood.
While it’s commonknowledge that overindulgence in certain carbs can lead to a drop in energy,consuming the right type of carbohydrates in proper amounts provide a source ofconstant, real energy the body can take advantage of. Studies have shown that three servings ofwhole grains each day can lead to an increase in overall energy. Breakfast is the prime time for one of theseservings, and suggestions include whole grain oatmeal, or whole wheat toastwith some peanut butter to get the bodies much needed protein in addition toenergy supplying carbohydrates.
Acupressure has oftenbeen sighted for providing numerous benefits, and one area that can provideadditional energy is the ears. Using thefingers to massage the lobes and outer rim of the ears has been reported toprovide a boost in energy and mental focus. 10 to 30 seconds of a massage is all it takes to wake the body up andget energy flowing experts say. This isone to try for desk workers or those who have a sedentary job.
Another thing the earscan do to assist in waking up the body is take in the sound of music, andencourage the vocal cords to work as well. Singing has been shown by researchers to be an invigorating and fun wayto wake the body up in a slump, and provide a mental and confidence boost atthe same time. The song doesn’t alwayshave to be loud, but the movement and emotional investment in a few versescould lead to a longer wake time during the day.
Proper rest isimportant, and if a person is feeling consistently tired they should monitortheir own sleep schedule, or see a physician to determine if a sleeping issueis to blame. But if its only generaldaytime sleepiness one is experiencing, trying the suggestions above could helpwake the body and mind up without the use of caffeine or other stimulants.
