As busy humans, you are likely always on the go, juggling work, family, and everything in between. It's no wonder that we often feel wired and tired, struggling to find balance and maintain a positive outlook. While supplements can help, they're only one part of the solution. A healthy lifestyle, including diet, exercise, and self-care, can also make a significant difference in our mood and energy levels. We know this, but find it hard to implement.
In this blog post, we want to help you find that balance by sharing ten actionable tips that can naturally boost your mood and energy levels. We'll give you our own tips as well as show you how our supplement, Flow State, can support you in improving energy, mood and calm your mind. Take a big breathe in and out now.
Eat a balanced diet: We know you know this, but a healthy diet provides the necessary nutrients for optimal physical and mental functioning and it doesn't have to be complicated (we promise!). Eating whole foods, including fruits, vegetables, and enough protein (not eating enough protein is one of the first things practitioners correct when you go and see a naturopath), this can help stabilise your blood sugar, improve your gut health, and enhance your mood. If you are looking for an easy meal, try our one pan dinner.
Get regular movement: Exercise releases endorphins, which can improve your mood and reduce stress. We know this right? Did you know it can also improve your sleep quality, and increase your overall energy levels. So if you haven't moved for awhile try something new that would feel fun or that you would enjoy. The Pilates Class got us back to moving after two kids, and forever grateful for that.
Prioritise sleep: A lack of sleep can lead to mood swings, fatigue, and a weakened immune system. Prioritising your sleep by sticking to a regular sleep schedule, creating a relaxing bedtime routine, and avoiding screen time before bed can help improve your sleep quality. We know this can be hard when you have children - try a few nights a week a reverse sleep in.
Practice mindfulness and meditation: Mindfulness and meditation are powerful tools for reducing stress, improving mood, and increasing focus. They can help you develop a more positive outlook on life and better manage daily challenges. You can start small and try Physiological Sighs, they only take 2 minutes while calms your mind instantly and gives you a natural energy boost.
Spend time in nature: Spending time in nature can have a profound impact on your mood and energy levels. Exposure to natural light, fresh air, and greenery can reduce stress, boost your mood, and increase your sense of well-being.
Take breaks to recharge: Taking breaks throughout the day can help you recharge your batteries and boost your productivity. Taking a short walk, reading a book, or practicing deep breathing exercises can all help you reduce stress and improve your mood.
Incorporate stress-reducing activities: Stress-reducing activities, such as journaling or taking a relaxing bath, can help you manage stress and anxiety. By incorporating these activities into your daily routine, you can improve your mood and reduce the negative effects of chronic stress.
Stay hydrated: Drinking enough water is essential for optimal physical and mental functioning. It can help you maintain your energy levels, improve your concentration, and boost your mood. The optimal hydration on average is 200ml/hour according to Professor Andrew Huberman.
